Centenary of the Battle of
Queenston Heights
The Story of Sir  Isaac Brock
Sunday lust, October 18th, was the
100th anniversary of the Battle ol
Queens ton Hei|*htB, nnv of the glorious events, from a Canadian standpoint, in the War of 1812-14. Unfortunately, however, the joy of victory was tinged with the Borrow of
uu irreparable Iohh, imiHii.uch as the
triumph of British arms was saddened by the death of the gallant lead
er of the British forces. Major-Gen-
eral air Isaac Brock. These forces,
consisting of 80ft regulars and militia and 200 Indians put to route nnd
American force of 1600, killing and
wounding over 500 officers and men
and taking prisoners 73 officers (including two generals and Ave colonels
and 862 rank nnd (He. The total A-
merican loss amounted to 1,425 officers and men; the total British, loss
to 110 officers and men, of whom 14
were killed, Including one major-gen*
eral and one aide.
The following account of the death
of Brock nnd of the battle is taken
from "The Story of Isaac Brock,"
by Walter R. Nursery:
They were getting at close quarters now. The redan was lesB than
fifty yards above.
He was calling to those nearest
him to hold their fire for a moment,
to prepare to rush the enemy and
use their bayonets, when, from a
thorn thicket, an Ohio scout, Wick-
low by name, oue of Moseley's riflemen, stepped forward, and, singling
out his victim, deliberately aimed at
the Oeneral. Several of the 49th, I
noticing the man's movement, fired j
but   too   late.   The rifleman's bullet |
entered our hero's right breast, tore
through bis body on the left Bide,
close to his heart, leaving a gaping
Brock wink slowly to the ground
quite sensible to his grevious fate.
A grenadier, horribly mutilated, fell
across him. To those who ran to
aid him, anxious to know tbe nature
of his injury, he murmured a few
broken   sentences and—turned to die.
He tried to frame messages to loved ones, and then, more audibly, as
he gallantly strove to raise his head
to give emphasis to his last, faltering
words—the same Isaac Brock, unmindful of seif and still n indful of
duty—he said, "My fall must not be
noticed, nor impede my brave companions from advancing to victory."
And with a sigh—expired.
Thus died General Sir Isaac Brock,
defender and savior of upper Canada
Died the death he would have selected, the most splendid death of ail-
that of the hero in the hour of victory, fighting for King and country,
for you and me, and with his face to
the foe.
Kor a brief space his body rested
where it had fallen, about one hundred yards west of the road that
leads through Queenston, and a little
eastward of an aged thorn bush.
Above the dead soldier's head,
clouds, sunshine and rustling foliage;
beneath it, fallen forest leaves, moist
and fragant. About tbe motionless,
body swayed tussocks of tall grass1
nnd the trampled heads of wild flowers. The shouts of the regulars, the

The play which is going to occupy
the   ntsention   of   the   Society   this
Pnll is called  "Cingalee."     This is
taken from a hook by .lames Tanner:
the versification is by  A. Robs and
P. Greenbnn; and the music by Lionel  Motikton.
The "Cingalee" will he an excellent
piny for the locnl talent owing to its
large cnRt of well assorted parts,
tuneful music and simple stage music.
The costumes arc all arranged in
Modern nnd East Indian styles. •
A brief synopsis nf tho play will

present herewith the general argument of the play in brief.
Hurry Vereker, presumptive heir to
an Em-lish title, leases a tea plantation of Chnmbuddy Ram. Tired of
being un idler, he undertakes the man
agement of It, nnd becomes en-raged
to Nanoyn, one nf his tea girls, a
ward nf Chnmbuddy. Sir Peter Lnf

wny u p country to settle a native

Miss Margaret Roberts was united
in the holy bonds of matrimony to
Mr. Allen Sinclair on Tuesday evening, at the home of her brothers,
Mr. and Mrs. ,1. Roberts; Rev. 0. E.
Kendall, pastor of the Baptist
church officiated.
At the appointed hour the couple
took their places under the archway
between the two rooms, directly under two large wedding bells.
The bride wore a dress of Gloria
trimmed with chiffon, and aB Bhe
stood with her hnthrothed they looked happy in their union as they received the congratulations of the
guests present.
An excellent lunch wns served nfter which the newly wedded couple
prepared for their departure on the
''Flyer" going Rust, their first stop
being Kenora and they will afterwards proceed to Richmond, Quebec.
They received a real hearty send-
off, many frlengs gathering at the
station to wish them Good Luck.
The   couple are well-known ln the
ducting his wife, married to him by
proxy, ln her fourth year, whom up
to the moment he haa never seen, of
illegally leasing her property to Vereker, nnd of stealing n valuable black
pearl, bought for him in London by
this same Ram.
While Sir Peter is stopping at the
plantation both natives appear, and
on hearing the case, he gives Rain
twenty-four hours to produce both
the wife and the pearl, with tbe alternative of going to prison for seven
years if he fails. The latter having
prtsented the pearl to Lady Patricia
ln Loudon, and having no knowledge
who or where the wife cnn he, is in
terrible straiss, but luckilydiscovers
that Nanoya, Vcreker's betrothed, is
the missing lady, and that Harry
has just presented the black pearl,
purchased n few days before, to her.
He induces the girl to appear while
the guests are present, and hands
her over to Boombambn, to the dis-
inny of Vereker, who determines to
rescue her from her disagreeable predicament.
The second act takes place ln Boob
hiimba's palace, to which Nanoya
has been removed. Vereker followg,
and in order to pusb thc guards and
also to outwit Sir Peter, who, disapproving his marrying a native, has
ordered his arrest on Bight, disguises
himself ns a coolie, nnd helps carry
some of the English visitors to the
ceremony to which they hnve been invited. Chnmbuddy Ram, wishing to
even matters up with Boobhamba,
dons the costume of the court nstrol
tiger, and announces that the stars
nre very unfavorable Boobhamba, un
willing to brave the anger of the Btar
surrenders Nnnoyn to Vereker and
marries someone else, st) that the
guests mny at least not miss the
wedding fete.

Colonel Theodore Roosevelt waB
shot in thc right brest on Monday
night by a would-be assassin just as
he left the Gilpatrick Hotel en route
to the Auditorium, where he was to
address a mnssmeetlng.
The colonel's life, in all human
probability, was saved by the manu
script of his speech and other papers
which he carried In the inside pocket
of his undercoat.
The bullet passing through overcoat, coat, manuscript, vest and
other clothing, penetrated the body,
stopping about two inches under the
Despite the wound, despite the
blood that was Rowing freely, the
colonel insisted on fulfilling his engagement with the people of Wisconsin. H. F. Oochom's, the former foot
ball star, introduced the colonel and
told the crowd  what had happened.
When the Colonel arose to speak
there was tremenduous cheering. He
drew his manuscript from his coat
pocket and allowed the audience
where the bullet had gone directly
through it.
He pointed ont the bullet hole to
the crowd. '"You see it takes more
thun that to kill a hull moose."
As tho colonel opened his coat and
vest, it was seen that nlmost the en
tire right side of his shirt was cover
ed with blood. He said that if it
bad not been for the manuscript he
had in his pocket on that side he
would have been killed.
The colonel declared that certain
newspaper influences wero to blame
for this attempted assassination;
that violent and unjustifiable newspaper attacks undoubtedly had influenced this weak-minded man to try
to kill him.
The colonel's physical strength,
however, was not equal to his courage and when half through his speech
he had to stop and wus then taken
to a hospital, where doctors examined the wound and probed for the
The man who fired the shot told
the police he wus John Schrank of
370 East Tenth street, New York.
He is young, apparently 30 yearfl old
five feet, five inches high, weighs 170
pounds and has a light compaction
and is bald.
It is evident from papers on his
person he has been trailing the colonel for a long while—ln fact, he
had the colonel's Itinerary written
down on a sheet of note paper of a
southern hotel.
The man Is without doubt demented. Two insane proclamations wore
found on his person, ln which iB sot
forth that it was his duty to kill
any man who aspired to a third
term. Quick action on the part of
bystanders alone saved Inin from
violent and sudden death.
He was hustled to the police station, whore he refused to reveal bis
Identity and reiterated time and
time again that he was justified in
killing the colonel and wns sorry
that be had not done so.
Ho snid that he had been trying to I
get a chance to tire the shot that
would remove Roosevelt from the
world for a long while, hut had been
unable to get the opportunity.
He had picked Saturday night in
Chicago at the Coliseum, as tho proper time and place for Ins act, but
tho crowd was so enormous that he
could not got within reach of his
Before 10 o'clock n tremendous
crowd of peoplo who were yelling for

an all-day examination and consulta-
sion the physicians deflnately described tho injury as "a serious wound in
the chest" and "not a mere flesh
A late bulletin which prohibited
communication between tbe Colonel
and persons other than those who
are attending him, declared tbat
"quietitude  is absolutely essential."
The patient slept well at intervals
during the day, ate ravenously of the
articles customarily making up his
bill of fare, read long extracts from
that he would not object to a ride
in the fresh air.
Finally learning that the correBpon
dents accompanying him on his apeak
ing tour, who had left him after the
assault in Milwuukee to file their
stories, had rejoined his entourage
at Mercy hospital, Colonel Roosevelt insisted that the edict of bis
physicians against communication
with him be ignored for the time.
The bullet wound Indicted in Theodore Roosevelt's chest at Milwaukee
was announced in Chicago on Thurs
day to be healing without infection.
The statement that no complications have shown themselves was
made after an examination in Chicago, Thursday.
A description of tbe wound waB
given by Dr. W. B. McCnuley, the
lirst. to be made known by the surgeons. Dr. McCauley said the bullets path through the muscles of the
chest is lacerated to some extent,
but there is little contusion and no
extensive area qs bruised and extra-
vasated surrounding tissue.
"The bullet did not mushroom as
might have been expected," said Dr.
McCauley. "For that reason it cut
a comparatively small hole in the
skin and did not reduce a large portion of the nearby tissues to pulp, as
is the case in a soft bullet that mush
rooms in animal tissue after it hits
the bone. 1 think the bundle of
papers checked it, and the spectacle
case for some reason failed to spread
the bullet much.
"The wound is about big enough
to put your finger in at the surface,
and it does not appear to get very
much larger. I would cull it a
clean wound. The skin is torn at
the surface in a ragged way, hut not
badly,  and there is little bruising.
"There is not a Bign of suppera-
tlon in the wound. Tbe flesh is in
good condition and seems to be
healing without evidence of complication. If there were pus forming
deep in the wound we would know
it at once hy au unusual rise of
Dr. McCauley added that It is
now certain from the X-ray pictures
that tho bullet has not entered or
Injured the pleural cavity.
Dr. McCnuley confirmed previous
announcements that no attempt
would be mnde at present to remove the bullet, which Is not expect-1
ed to hinder the healing of the fractured rib.
There wnn little in the appearance
of Colonel Roosevelt to indicate
that he was not In his usual health.
Ills face has not lost biH color and
as he sat propped up wltb pillows
he moved about easily und apparently was free from pain. As he
talked he used IiIh characteristic gestures, although with perhaps less
vigor than usual, and at times his(
laugh could he heard in tho corridor |
outside. J
Relieved from politics for the first1
time In months he seemed to enjoy j
his care-free state and to be deter*
mined to make his stay at the boa {
pftal an enjoyable vacation. His
three children who are in Chicago
dropped tn to see him three times
during the day. Mrs Roosevelt would
not permit them to remain long,
IcHt her husband tire himself I
wnn to have visited Mrs. L. Hodg
Minion, of Portland for a few days,
then tn rontlnno his Journey tn Southern California.

he is missing.
Once more this afternoon Mrs.
Roosevelt found 0. K. Davis, secretary of the progressive national cum
mittee, in Colonel Roosevelt's room.
He remained there ouly a few seconds after the appearance of Mrs.
Roosevelt, who without debate exiled him to the corridor.
The nervous tension of yesterday
was somewhat relaxed today. Tho
few persons who were admitted to
the corridor near the Colonel Roosevelt's room on the third floor spoke
in natural tones instead of whispers.
When the score of the base ball
game in Boston began to arrive by
innings, Colonel Roosevelt was almost forgotten for a time
Ah soon as Mrs. Roosevelt reached
the hospital this morning she took
charge of affairs. She wns accompanied by Theodore Roosevelt, jr.,
Mrs. Nicholas Longworth and Miss
Ethel Roosevelt. Later in the dny
Congressman Longworth arrived,
Mrs. Roosevelt installed herself in a
room adjoining that of her husband
and during the day seldom left his
Mrs. Roosevelt's first move was to
decree thnt the Colonel must see no
visitors except members of his family
Once or twice during the day she
mnde exceptions, hut otherwise she
adhered firmly to her resolution.
The colonel was feeling fine and
ready to receive visitors, but Mrs.
Roosevelt gave him no opportunity
to pass upon her ruling, for she
made tt on her own authority and
saw to it thnt it was enforced. She
received the cards and meflsages and
sent back her replies with the result
that the colonel himself did not
know who wished to see him.
Tbe impression grew today that
Col. Roosevelt would be able to do
little or nothing in the campaign.
Although he expressed the hope of
leaving for Oyster Bay on Sunday,
It is probable that he will be compelled to remnin in the hospital for
at, least a week longer and that after hifl arrival home he will not be
permitted to plunge Into the campaign again, Associates of Col.
Roosevelt said that he was deeply
disappointed at being obliged to
leave the fight daring the closing
weeks whon it was to be the hardest,
he was showing nn concern as tn the
possible effect of his removal from
the field of battle.
It is Col, Roosevelt's desire to
make at least one more speech before
election day and that in his own
state of New York. If he can do
nothing else, he hopes to speak in
Madison Square Garden,
CHICAGO, Oct. 17,—Campaign activities should not cease because of
Colonel Roosevelt's attempted assassination, so far as he is concerned.
The following statement was issued
by Colonel Roosevelt today at Mercy
hospital in answer to what Mr. Bryan Bald yesterday in his speech at
Franklin, Tnd,:
"I wish to express my cordinl a-
greement with the manly and proper
statement of Mr. Bryan nt Franklin,
tnd., when in arguing for a continuance of tho discussion of the issues
at stake in the contest, he snld:
"The issues of this campaign
should not be determined by the act
of an assassin. Neither Colonel
Roosevelt nor his friends could ask
that the discussion be turned away
from thc principles that ure involved

past and what he proposes to do in
the future,"
"1 wish to point out. however, that
neither I nor my friends have asked
that the discussion ho turned away

On the contrary, we emphatically demand that tho discussion be carried

You bave made up your mi uii to
get b -live ot heen and try your luck.
The first thing to do is to subscribe
(or a bee journal to keep you posted
in the yearly routine of work. The
Canadian Bee Journal of Bfantford
19 v«ry good at $1.00 per year. The
next thing necessary is a hive of
bees which -should be ordered iu winter to be delivered in early spring,
about the 1st of -April aud should be
pure bred Italian, guaranteed free
from foul blood disease. You should
also order supplies which I would ud
vise to consist of two hive complete

at first 1 ;, .supers with frames, 5 lbs
medium brood foundation, Jib spool
foundation wire, 3 queen excluders,
bee vail, wire imbedder. bee brush,
a four-inch smoker and a hive tool. I
LesB supplies would carry you thro'
but It costs as much to bring 50 as
100 lbs and always comes in handy.
It will be cheaper to have it come
Hat nnd you can get your hand in
putting it together while you are
studying your bee literature.
Spring has come and also your
hive of bees. You will feel rather
nervous when you hear the noise
they are making Inside the wire
screen. You muke up your mind to
succeed as others have done and you
will. Select the spot where you
wish to place tbe hive in such position as to get the early morning and
evening sun, set two blocks on the
ground, one for the back of the hive
and one lor the front. They should
be made level and about a foot from
tbe ground facing opposite from the
coldest wind (this is to protect them
on cold windy days and will often
prevent the young brood from chilling) set a lighting board from
ground to hive. Now get your smoker ready, put the live coals iu the
bottom of it, add some dry materials, such as planer shavings or old
cotton, don't use any kind of wool
it will make the bees cross and they
will surely sting you, put your bco
vail on and for the first few times a
pair of leather gloves, carry tbe hive
to the stand and set in the exact
position In which it is to remain for
tbe season, then remove the wire
screens after blowing a little smoke
into tbe opening place the cotton
q lit It over the frames driving the
bees back with a little smoke.
Some bees may be on the top, so
take bold of the ,-uilt and move side
ways a little so as to roll any bees
oil and down m between so as to a-
voiil crushing any when replacing
tbe wooden cover Next get a piece
Ol paper and fold the size of the hive
and lay Hat on the cotton then put
on the wooden hive oover. (let som«
inch square blocks ami cloBe up part
■ -f thfl entrance. 1 have found it u
good plan to cover the hive, excepting the entrance, with some sacks to
keep it as warm as possible will assist the bees greatly in the spring.
If the weather is cold leave them a-
lonfl for a lew days. On a bright
warm day get your smnkor ready,
youi 1 eil on, hive tool and bee
brush handy, llll the wooden cover

the quilt, blow a lew putts ol smoke
in and then finitely pull it back and
give another pull ol Hinoke to turn
back any bee:, that may have, come

tbe liiu* tool and pry the division

It out. very gently, use a httle more
smoke il the bees seem m-iis; now
pry the first flOltlh to tbe sldo ol the
hive where the division board was,
take it by the top enils and lilt
straight out slowly, look carefully
for the queen, there should be honey
in this eomb, nearly full. The three
centre combs should hnve brood and
egga    in    a    half    moon shape.   The
queen is longer than the worker and
slightly larger and slower in her
movements over the comb. Thfl
drones ure male hees, larger than the:
workers but their hind extremities
are rounder while the queen is more
pointed. If you don't find her this
time don't worry—that is if you have
discovered eggs and young grubs,
close again and if they have some
stores don't opeu for a week. If* you
see the bees coming home with big
balls on their hind legs you can rest
assured they are doing alright. It
will not hurt the hees to examine
them occasionally providing you do
uot anger them and put them in a
If the hive is full of hees at the
commencement of June put a super
on filled with foundation from your
supplies, but before you do so take
a comb out ol the brood nest that
is all sealed over and containing no
eggs or unsealed brood, shake all the
bees of! on the ground in (rout of the
hive to he sure the queen is not on
it, (should there be uny queen cells
destroy them) put. a comb of foundation In its place, put queen excluder
on, then super, place the comb of
brood in super, put on mat or cover,
remove all blocks from the entranca
to give bees full width opening. It
much honey is coming the hees will
commence to draw out the combs in
the super and store honey. They
are liable to swarm now any time,
so have a hive ready and be prepared
When bees are preparing to swarm
you will be attracted by the noise,
they come out of the entrance with a
rush as if something was after them
and they were leaving as quickly as
possible, In a short time the air will
he full of hees much like a snow
storm nnd you may wonder where
they all come from, get a pail of
water nnd throw water on them
which will make t-iem cluster quicker
When clustered, give them a good
wetting if possible to reach them.
(let a sheet of cotton and see the
hive on it. as near the cluster as
possible. You may be able to shake
them of! the limb if it is not high
and let them drop on the cloth or
you can cut off the limb nnd enrry
it to the hive. l,i.y close to the entrance, starting the bees with a
spoon, alter they commence to go in
there is no trouble you can use the
smoker to drive ami keep them go
I prefer to put a comb of brood in
the hive along with thc other empty
combs. Now gq to your old hive and
lift It off, set to one side on a new
stand, then set the new hive on the
old stand, put on 11 super and queen
excluder. There will he no more
swarming this year. Watch the hees
and give them plenty ot room, not
too much, should they be crowded
add another super, lifting a comb or
two out of the other hive and put
into thc (super and till both with
comhfl of foundation. About the end
of .Inly remove tiie supers and take a
look at the brood nests, remove any
empty combs and replace with full
combs, store the balance of the honey comb where bees can not get at
it. This is the month to get Ita)
inn queens if your bees are black order an untested-queen for each hive
and Introduce tbem, Your bees will
be   all   Italian   by   .tune next year,
Hen    that your been have sultlrlent

Now prepare a winter rase in which
to park the hive. It vou are to win

and pack   material down all   AtOUndJ
to tap of hive, put cover on aud
something to keep rain and snow out
of hive. About the middle of September open hive and see if *.hey
have a queen and six.combs full of
honey. Put division boards on each
outside, then put on cotton uuilt •*"''
till to'top of box with packing 8 inches or a foot deep. Then cover the
whole with a good protection from
rain and snow, tilt back ot case a
bout 4 inches set a board from
ground to entrance. After cold weather sets in place a hoard slanted
from the ground, the top end touching about a foot or more above the
entrance -to prevent the «un from
shining in, see that snow does not
block the entrance in winter. If
bees are flying freely in early spring
don't open hives lor some time
take them out of cases about the
time they need more room.
Don't jar the combs or hives while
working with them, also avoid breathing or blowing on them. Always
clean hands with unscented soap before handling the hees. Do uot
leave horses standing near a bee-
yard in the direction of their flight
and if handling horses or working
w th them do not go directly to the
bees. Dont leave any parts of comb
lying around or sweets exposed in
time of scarcity will cause robbing
und stinging. Don't strike at thc
bees or move hands quickly over 0-
pen hive. Work quietly. Don't jerk
a comb containing queen cells, it
will kill the queens. If a bee or
bees follow and threaten to sting
move to one side and kill it with a
shingle. Don't use too much smoke
or it will put the bees in a panic,
some bees need very little if any.
If a colony is vicious give it a good
smoking at the entrance and pound
sides of hive with your hands, repeat once or twice, then open the
hive and give more smoke, after they
roar for a while you can generally
handle tbem better. Buch a hive
should have a new queen introduced.
Don't introduce un Italian queen to
a yard of black bees or vice verwi
as it will spoil the bees and make
cross in early spring any hives Irom
which the bees do not fly, examine
and clean entrances etc., see if tbey
have queen, If not unite with some
colony with queen.
If you should have a colony whose
worker cells are raised instead of
Hat, the queen is no good und you
should introduce another. The drones
hnve no sting, neither will the uueen
sting you. Do not touch the queen
If possible, she Is easily hurt; if necessary to catch her, do so hy taking hold of her wings, set her on
combs. Dees will sometimes have
quite a Hy and lead you to think
they are swarming, but go close and
you will see that they are mostly
young and rather brighter looking
than usuul and will he llyliu: with
heads towards the hive, alighting
and running up the front. Young
queens mate with the drones generally before the 7th day and after that
should begin to lay. Sometimes a
virgin will he deformed and cannot
liy and so cannot be mated and will
return to the hive; should you discover such a case, about the time
they should hnve a good laying queen
better destroy hor and give them a
comb of eggs from some other colony. Shake all the bees off at toe
hive yon take it from. After supply
Ing the bens with winter stores, you
may eut up some of the combs of
honey for your own use, Such combs
are valuable and lt is better to put
a comb or two in with n starter of
foundation that Is about one inch
from thn top. Without wire these
combs should be used at the table

Farming in the Cranbrook District in it's Several Branches
By G. H. Ashworth
Cranbrook is proud of tbe great
mineral nud lumber wealth iu ber Immediate vicinity, and although these
resources have as yet been scarcely
tupped, one occasionally comes across
a "knocker" who asks: What will
support and contribute to the ex*
pansion of tbe city when these
resources an- exhausted?" The
chances that any of these pessimists
wilt live long enough to see this
come to pass are very small indeed;
and long before there is any dimini-
tlon of the income from theso, sources
agriculture ia its various forms will
huve grown to an extent undreamed
of hy those wbo have not studied the
capabilities of our soil and climate.
Many who huve attempted the raising of fruit and vegetables have made
a lamentable failure of it, but in
most, if not all cases this bus heen
due to lack of knowledge or perseverance. A friend of the writer only the
other day made the assertion that
the district was of no use for farming purposes, and cited as proof, the
fact that on his father's farm in
Ontario they could produce more
from one acre of land than could be
produced from five acres m this country. This is no doubt true to a certain extent, as the old homestead
had hnd the muscle and brains of at
least two generations put into it,,
there is not tbe slightest doubt that
our soil and climate can produce
quite as much as can be done in not
only Ontario, but any country in thc
world, and in a fraction of the time
it Cook my friend's ancestors to get
their farm Into its present state of
productiveness, owing to the im
mense improvements in agricultural
implements and the publication of
the results of experimental and
educational work done by our
provincial and dominion governments
as well as private individuals.
crn crops and eastern methods, and
llnds these a failure, he ls just as
much justified in condemning the
country as would a settler from Klor
Ida or California who failed to grow
a crop of oranges In Hritisb Columbia.
In this article the writer will deal
as far as possible with what he considers the hest methods to be adopted to ensure success in the immediate
vicinity of the city, or as fur as the
same conditions of soil, altitude and
climate apply, and ulso as fur as
possible with matters that have come
under his own experience or observation only.
Tbe tirst subject to be considered is
the preparation of the soil, so that
it becomes suitable to thc requirements of the crop to be grown on it;
the soil may contain any or all of
the constituents necessary to plant
life, but these require to be got into
such a condition as to be readily absorbed in the crop planted, and he
converted as quickly as possible into
the finished product; to imagine that
all that is necessary is to break the
land and sow the seed, or plant fruit
trees, is to make a big mistake, and
to adopt this plan is to ensure failure und disappointment, forest trees
and farm crops requiring totally different conditions. New land cannot
be broken too deeply, or cultivated
too muoh before even a rough forage
crop is put in, and the better results
obtained by the thorough working of
the soil in its raw state will more
than compensate the cultivator for
bis pains, besides being a so much
better start towardsgetting the land
into a condition in which it will do
itself and its owner justice, and become a remunerative and permanent
asset. Liberal dressings of manure
should also be supplied, not only to
supply the humus which is necessary,
The government of our province, up
to the last few years took little interest In the development of the land
being content with the revenue produced from its mines, fisheries aud
lumber Industries, but our present
government realize that our greatest
and most stable* wealth will come
from tbe soil and are sinning neither
pains nor money to help the farmer,
and would-be farmer to get the best
results from bis labor, by engaging
the best experts to be had in tholr
various lines, the support Ol farmer's
Institutes, agricultural societies,
(armor's Co-operative associations,
etc., not to" mention tho amount
spent yearly on the opening up of
new roads, and ihr Improvement of
old ones.
Referring again to the difference between our district, ami tho older cultivated parts of the country one must
always take Into consideration the
difference between the prices obtained
by a farmer in British Columbia and
one in the oast, which in many products, is several times as grout in
the former instances us in the later.
It would be worse than useless to
assert that the farmer lu a new com.
try does not have more difficulties to
contend with than the one in .an old
settled district, hut as mentioned bo-
for thoso are more than compensated for hy tho higher prices obtainable for his produce, when thu ditli
ciilties are overcome.
Ttio farmer of tho east absorbs the
knowledge of what will "do," and
what will "not do" In the soli from
childhood up, but when he changes
his location to the west he must find
out tbe best crops to grow, and the
method of treatment necessitated liy
strange conditions.    If he tries east
1>ut also because the decomposition
of organic matter in the soil, helps
to convert many inorganic substances
lu the soil from a condition in which
thoy are unavailable for plant food,
into tbe reverse. The treatment mentioned is also of extreme benefit in
enabling the soil to absorb and retain the moisture required during the
dry spells when no rain falls to replace evaporation. Kvery reader is
familiar with the law of capillary attraction us illustrated by the manner
in which tho oil of a lamp ascends
through the wick; the same principle
applies to tbe action of the soil iu
conveying the moisture from the subsoil, to the surface, and the more
finely and deeply the soil is broken
up, tbe more this action Is facilitated
This rising of moisture to tho surface is generally to be easily observed ln a well dug and finely raked gar-
don, more particularly if the surface
has been gently rolled; look at your
garden in tho evening after a hot sun
or a dry wind and it will appear absolutely dry, but early next morning
it will often be found as dark in
color as though ruin had fallen during thc night.
Too great stress cannot be laid on
the Importance not. only of having as
much as possible of the moisture
contained iu the soil available for
use, or of the importance of carefully conserving all the moisture that
fulls either as rain or snow. This
moisture is infinitely more beneficial
than any that ean bo applied by
menus of irrigation, both because It
is the same temperature as the land
and because It becomes saturated
with the plant foods contained In the
soil and builds up a more solid
plant, tissue.   This fact is well known
by tbo user or dealer in root crops
who finds a great dilTerence in the
quality und keeping properties of
non-irrigated roots as compared with
thoso. grown under irrigation, the
difference being overwhelmingly iu
favor of the first mentioned. How
often do we see land ploughed lute in
tho spring, und left in the furrow
until it is dust dry, or baked as hard
as a brick?
Wben   it    is   remembered that, soil
imlly in view by the originator.
Some varieties have heen raised with
the object of getting the earliest possible maturity, others to mnture lute
others for special quality or size;
others again to resist drought, or
cold, or extreme temperatures, und so
on; so tbat the importance of careful
selection is self evident. If the rules
mentioned are ohserved good crops of
clover, grain, and nil common roots
can   be   relied    upon; but at. present
thus exposed to the drying effects of
sun and wind loses several tons of
moisture per acre in one day, is it
nny wonder that we so often hour it
suid that irrigation is necessary to
ensure a crop?
During the six yenrs the writer has
lived in British Columbia we have
never had a season when root crops
have failed through lack of moisture,
where thorough methods of cultivation have been used, and varieties
adapted to the country and the nature of the soil have been sown.
There are, of course, u certain number of high gravel benches in places
where it would be ridiculous to expect to grow either fruit, vegetables,
or grasses, without the artificial application of water, but these spotB
are smnll, few, and fir between.
After the soil hns been prepared it
is advisable, if not altogether necessary to grow u forage crop on land
that is intended to be used for fruit
or vegetables, some species of the
leguminous or pen family for preference. For fairly rich, well drained
land alfalfa is one of the best, but is
sometimes a little difficult to get established. When it is established,
however, it constitutes a useful and
profitable crop either for pasture or
For moist bottom land, alsiko or
red clover will be found suitable aud
remunerative, and for dry situations
vetches, once started, will stand
quite a severe drought, particularly
if sown with a cover crop of oats or
rye, in fact the majority of the
clovers soem to get a better start
under these conditions.
When sowing root crops it is important that suitvible varieties of
eacb class bo choson; oven In, the
hardest clnsses of vegetables it is im-
the more delicate crops, such as
cucumbers, squash, string beans, etc.,
ure subject to damage from the slight
summer frosts to which we are liable,
though, as haB been pointed out in
previous articles, these will probably
disappear as the district is cleared
and cultivated.
From observations made for several summers the writer found that
practically all the damaging frosts
last only two or three hours before sunrise and bb more land iB
broken and cultivated more of the
sun's heat will be absorbed during
the day. and so raise the night temperature. It ie also noticeable that,
many of the frosts occur after a rain
due. partly, if not wholely, to the
lowering of the temperature of the
atmosphere by the evaporation of
water which has remained on or near
the surface of the ground. This
forms another instance of the advantage of deep and thorough cultivation, enabling the water to soak into
the ground and thus avoid "rapid
evaporation and consequent lowering
of temperature That this is the case
was proved by the writer a couple of
years ago, when he had two lots of
tomatoes planted out, one lot on
lund flhat bad beou deeply spaded,
and well manured, the otber on a
shallow ploughing. When the first
frost came the former was uninjured
whilst the latter were ruined, although not more than twenty or
thirty feet Intervened between tbem.
Hmall fruits of all kinds grow to a
perfection unknown in many districts
which hnve a big reputation for fruit
growing. Prof. I.nke, of the Oregon
College nf Agriculture, who was
through here some two or three yearB
ago, remarked that he had seen blac
ago, remarked   that tie had seen black
portent that suitable varieties of
each class be chosen; oven In the
hardest, classes of vogotftblus It Is important that n careful study be made
of the best variety to be sown. In
such things as turnips, cabbages,
cauliflowers, carrots, onions, etc.,
each variety found lu the seed catalogue has been produced after years of
careful cultivation and selection with
some   particular   object kept contln-
Clirt'untfl grown hero that wore a sur
prise to bim, and that looked almost
llko cherries.
A good many varieties of apples
and plums are suit-able for our ell
mate and soli, but here again care
must be taken to plant the varieties
which are suitable, and also to have
tho soil in a suitable condition, and
to plan! correctly.
Ono thing the writer has found
most    beneficial     in     iitai ting     newly
plunted trees and small fruit bushes
is to put a fork full of manure under
neath, but not in actual contact with
the roots, that is to say, having u
thin layer ot earth on the top of It.
This must be well tramped into the
bole, and saturated with water, the
tree put in aud the hole about half
filled with curth, thou again well
soaked with water. The advantages
of this method arc that the slight
heat produced by the decomposition
of the manure induces tbe formation
of new rootlets, while the rotted
manure becomes a porous layer
through which the newly formed rootlets penetrate easily, and it also assists the capillary action referred tu
Another fatal mistake, which, in
the opinion of the writer is responsible for much winter killing is the
vicious tree butchering often perpetrated in the name of pruning. Every
horticulturist knows of course that
pruning is necessary to produce good
fruit, but this should be done skillfully and with a definite object in
view, not a single cut should be
made without the person who makes
It knowing what effect it will have
on tbe tree, whereas, many would-be
horticulturists seem to be under the
impression that pruning and slashing
are synonymous. ,
Many illustrations of tiiis idea may
be seen in numbers of ornamental (a
big note of interrogation, please Mr.
Editor) trees in our city, which are
wonderful specimens of urborical
monstrosities. |t should always be
borne in mind that no matter how

After he fell, the handful of men
who were with him, overcome by his
tragic end, overwhelmed hy superior
numbers and a hurricane of buckshot
and bullets, wavered, nnd though
Dennis attempted to rally them, fell
back and retreated to the far end nf
Queenston village. Here about two
hours luter, Colonel Macdonnell,
Brock's aide, collected aud reformed
the scattered units, and mnde ano

and retake the redan. A detailed
ocrount of the Incidents that followed In dramatic succession would fill

With the cry of "Revenge ebe Gen

Macdonnell, on Brock's charger led
the forlorn* attack, eupporsed by
Deuuis.   At tbe game time, Williams,
Continued from page 1
with his detachment, emerged from a
thicket, shouting to his men, "Feel
firmly to the right, my lads; advance
steadily, charge them home, and they
cannot stand you." The two detachments then combined, and Macdonnell ordering a general advance
they once more breasted the ascent.
The enemy, over four hundred,
strong, but without proper formation
fired an independent volley at the
British as they approached to within thirty yards of the redoubt. Tbis
wns responded to with vigor, and
thc grenadiers and volunteers, in
response to brave Mucdonnell's repented callB, charged fiercely on Wool
men, now huddled in disorder a-
round the eighteen-pounder. Some of
them started on the run towards the
river bank One American ottlcer
Ogllvie, ot the 18th regulars, thinking the situation hopeless, raised bis
handkerchief on his sword point in
token ot surrender. Woll a soldier
ot a different calibre, tore it down,
and a company of United Stntes Infantry coming at that moment to
his assistance, he rallied his men,     j
The momentary advantage gained
by Mucdonuell's small band of heroes

that followed, Mucdonnell's horse-
Brack's charger—was killed under
him, while he—his uniform torn with
bullets—was thrown from the saddle
as the animal plunged in Its death
struggle—receiving several ghastly
bullet wounds from which he died
the following day atter enduring
much agony. Williams, a moment
later, fell desperately wounded; Dennis, suffering from a severe head
wound, at first refused to quit the
Held, but Cameron having removed
the sorely stricken Macdonnell, and
Williams having recovered consciousness and escaped tbe dispirited men
fell back, retreated down thn moun-,
tain at rarrott's Tavern, retiring
upon Vroomnn's battory. Here they
awaited unmolested, until two in the
afternoon, the arrival of reinforcements from Fort George. The fight, ■
though short, hud heon furious and
deadly.   Americans aud British alike
were glad to take breath.
Meanwhile, unobserved young
Brant, with 120 Mobnwk Indians,
had scaled the mountain, -east of Bt.
David's, outflanking the Americans,
and hemmed then, in until Captain
Derenzy, of the 41st, and•Holerott,
of the Artillery, arrived with the
car-brigade from Fort George and
trained two tleld-guns and a howitzer upon tbe Ian ang. Meeritt, with
a troop of mounted infantry, at the
same time reached the village by the
Queenston road. This movement
whlcb was a ruse, deceived the enemy, who at once redisposed hia
troops in readiness for an attack
from this new quarter.
The American commander was ignorant of the fact that General
Sheaffe—with four companies of tbe
41st, 30). strong the.same number ol
militia, and a company ot negro-
troops from Niagara, refugee slaves
from the United States— was at
that moment approaching his rear
in the rear of the Indians. The
British advanced in crescent-shaped
formation, hidden hy mountain and
bush, aud were shortly Joined by a
few more regulars and by two dank
companies of the 'Imi regiment of
inilltlu from Chippewa. Indeed,
many persons of all ranks of life,
even veterans exempt by age, seized
their muskets nnd joined the column
to repel the invaders, "unappalled"
by Denrhorue's threats of conquest
or by the death of their beloved
hero "Isaac Brock." By this movement the Hritisb escaped tbe enfilading tire of tbe Lewiston batteries,
the Htcop ascent of the Heights lu
thc teeth of thn enemy's field-works,
and compelled hltn to chtnige front.
The British ot all ranks numbered
less than one thousand.
Tbe United Stntes troops which
had been heavily reinforced, consisted at this time of I mm lighting men
on or about the mountain. Tbls
number was slowly supplemented by
fresh arrivals from Lew IB ton, encour
nged when they saw tbo American
Hag   planted   on   the   redan.      The
wounded were sent across the river.
Nearly all the new nrrivals wereVeK-
ulars. Colonel Winifield Scott, of
Mexican fame, a tried soldier, six
feet four in bis stocking.,, was now
in command supported by. a second
field-piece and many sharp shooters.
Van Rcneselaer, narrowly escaping
copture, had retreated by boat over
Lewiston, ostensibly to bring over
more troops. Finding the conditions unfavorable, be did not do so
but sent over General Wiidsworth, as
a vicarious sacrifice , to take command. The gun in tbe redan had
unspiked, and the summit strongly
entrenched, but as Scott's men betrayed strange lukewarmness, orders
were given to shoot any man leav
ing his post.
Shenffe's men having rested after
their forced tramp, a few special
ease-Shot by Holcroft drove out the
American riflemen. His gunners had
at last silenced the Lewistou batteries, nnd finding the river range,
sunk almost every boat that attempted to cross. The Indluns were now
ordered to drive In the enemy's pickets slowly. Scouting the woods
they routed his outposts.
About four p.m. Captain Bullock,
with two (lank companies of militia
and 15(1 men of the 41st advanced,
and nfter firing a volley in tbe face
of a dense smoke, charged the enemy's right, which broke in great
confusion. A general advance was
ordered, and, with wild war-whoops
hy tbe (Indians and white men, the
heights were rushed, Wadworth's
veterans were stampeded, the redan
retaken at tbe pnlnt, of the bayonet,
and Scott's command forced to tbe
scarp of the cliff overhanging the river.
The American soldiers to quote
United States historians, now "tied
like sheep," nml scuttled off in all
directions. Home raced hcndlnng
down the mum road, seeking shelter
under the mu/zles of Holcroft's guns,
some sought refuge in the houses;
others raced to tbe landing only to
find the bouts no longer there. Not
a few hot. pressed by Brunt's nven I
glng Molluwks, threw themselves!
ovee the precipice, preferring sulfide
In the rod man's tomahawk. Others
plunged Into the Niagara, essaying
to swim its irresistible eddlos, only tn
he blown out of the green wuter by
Holcroft's grapeshot or suckeri down
by the river's whirlpools.
One boat, with fifty struggling refugees, sank with its entire crew.
Two others similiarly laden were
benched below tho village, With only
one dozen out of one hundred souls
still living. The river presented a
shocking scene. On the face of tbe
water, men, many maimed and wounded, fought nnd struggled for survival. This pitiful spectacle was actually taking place under the eyes'ot
severul • thousands of American soldiers on the Lewiston bank, who, a:
most impossible to believe, and to
their lasting disgrace, refused to join
or attempt even to succour, their
comrades—dent to all entreaty—allowing them to perish. Kvery room
nnd shuck at Queenuton was an improvised hospital or morgue, filled
with tbe mangled bodies of the
tquick and the dend.
Cruikshunk says 120 wounded United States oflicers and meu were taken, of whom thirty died at hospital
in Queenston und Niagara, while 140
more were ferried across to Lewiston
LoBsing the American historian, ho!

Description of.Wasa
The Coming Center of  Industry on the
Kooteney Central Railway
Twenty-lour milen from Cranbrook,
and twelve miles from Kort. Steele,
is Wasn, one of tbe busiest, most
up-to-date and modern settlements io
the valley.
As an illustration of what may be'
taccomplished by industry and enterprise may be mentioned that about
twenty-four year ago, Mr. N. Hanson
settled in what was then the wilderness, and today owns about lfiOO j
acres. *f 'and, where hundreds of cattle graze ami plendid crops are
raised. He is the proprietor of the
most modern hotel in the country,
has a general store, which supplies
the ranchers and minors with their
wants, his own electric power plant,
saw mill, cold storage and garage.
Wasa ia now a townsite on the
Kootenay Central railway and the
prospective centre of a largo mining
und agricultural district, it baa a
pust otlice and public school
With the unlimited land, timber
und mineral resources and the rall-
roah which shortly will be in opera
tion, this district has u bright future and Wusa promises to he a
place of importance in Kast Kooten
ay Valley.
Kniit. nnd vegetables of various
kinds are successfully  raised.    Hither
to fruit growing haa been m an experimental stage only. >>ut the Kootenay Fruit Land and Development
Co., not long ago acquired about
1.200 acres for fruit growing purposes, and will, with modern irrigation und cultivation, have one of the
Bnest orchards in the valley.
A large English syndicate has acquired some of the hest lund at
Wasa for colonization purposes and1
intend to spend a good deal of money in improvements and the cultivation of the land.
Among the best known mines'
nround Wasa may be mentioned: j
Tbe Stella, eight miles distant. The1
Canby, Oanhy No. 1, Fisher lliver
and the .Jennings, located on Wolf
Creek, about fi miles from Wasa. A
strong ore body on the ilrst named
mine sboiVH values in gold and curries a combination of tbe rarer metals. Tbe Inst mentioned group is a
Qaleena property showing a very extensive lead of ore, which curries a
high percentage of gold and copper.
Hesido those two there ure numerous
other promising more or less developed claims.
Home of theso claims will according to authentic reports be developed
next  summer,    Outside capital lu at
their disposal to make thi- claims
paying mines and great interest m
local prospects has of late been a*
wakaned among mining financiers.
Logging and saw mills are one ot
the Important industries around
Wasa The C.P.R. company maintains .. permanent logging camp
about sixteen miles from there, where
millions oi feet of logs and ties are
cut in tiie winter and taken down
the Kootenay to the company's mills
at Wardner. Also the Crow's .Nest
Pass Lumber Co,, who own large
timber tracts in the vicinity plan
logging on a large scale. Many individuals are cutting timber on their
land and selling the logs to the
saw mills, thus making a good profit and getting the land cleared.
Among the most prominent ranchers around Wasa may be mentioned:
Dr. E. A. Onie, Ch. Stevens. A. B.
Smith, Mrs. Donahue, H. E. Birtch,
H. Barr. Wm. French, T. Mayne, T
Fleetwood, P. Jensen, K. McNair, C.
H. Pollen. J. B. Crow, U. Bechtel,
A. J, Miller. J. H. Parker, J. W.
Blake and others, who. some of them [
bave heen there for years and others
recently settled but all are prosper-
ous and ent'iiusias-i.c over the future
prosperity of Wasa.
