aud approximately 460 feel long uml
will have the appearance of a veritable cascade of apples, having n
fall of 17 reef without beginning ami
without cud, which, with lhe hcaitti-
,Ul colorings of the king of fruit will

Wjtbin the charming circle of the
apple hosts wilt tie stationed upon
a raised platform the isih Highlanders' military band of forty pieces,
the insist famous baud of Canada and
one of the leading bands of the
world. This great musical organization lias been secured by the management exclusively for the first Canadian National Apple Show al an
initial expense of 15,000. The hanl
will come direct from Toronto, Ont.,
to Vancouver and will return direct tn Toronto without playing concert engagements al any Intermediate point. Tlie appearance of the
hand in full dress Highland costume
is certainly the most attractive military band spectacle in the world-
It stands today pre-eminently Canada's favorite band, unequalled hy
any other military hand in its special line of entertainment, ami under
Die brilliant     leadership     of   Bandmaster    .lohn    Slatter will always
maintain its reputation and live   up I
to and    fully    sustain 'its standing j
"second to none."
Bandmaster .Slatter graduated from
one s>f the most celebrated hands ol
the Hritish army (the First Life
Guards) of which be was one of
tbe principal soloists, witb a brilliant record in every branch ol
band work. Besides having a thorough knowledge of instrumentation
lie is a composer and arranger .if
considerable ability and a conductor
sif notable grace ami magnetic force.
Ile has been bandmaster of the -lflth
Highlanders since  JSU5.
He is the first baud leader to successfully introduce u properly trained
choir of male voices in baud concerts, the ten members being atl
bandsmen who are thoroughly :tt
home in the charming songs ol
"Aiild Scotia."
The band also carries two speeial
Vocal soloists of exceptional meri!
Tbey are Waller Marlor, concert
tenor, and Mr. Kdwin It. Hanson,
baritone soloist.
Bandmaster Slatter has Introduced
several other notable features imt
seen with any other baud, among
which may Im- mentioned, an innovation very much appreciated, lhe
dancing of the bandsmen iu national ami Scottish dances, ineliidiuix
Keel of TuUoch, Scottish reel, etc.,
and introducing Mr. Alexander Munro, the winner of many championship medals, who is equally at home
in tbe Highland fling, sword dance,
Sliean Tlews, sailor's hornpipe, Irish
jig, reel dancing, etc.
A Scottish concert without the
bagpipes would he Hamlet with tin-
Dane left out. Some sif the bcsl
pipers iu tlu* world belong to tlie
pipe hand, among whom is I'ipe-
Major Farquhar lleston, the winner of more prizes than any olher
man in Canada. Among his past
honors arc includes) the championship gold medal of Canada; ths* championship gold medal of Chicago
world's fair; tlu? championship medal
of Kdinburgh, Scotland, ami the first
pri/e winner in both competitions at
the Pan-American exposition at Buffalo.
Specialty artist Harold Stater has
gained widespread renown iu his
versatile and exceptionally lint* performances witb so many of the at>
cessory type of musical Instruments,
lie is a finished performer on the
grand chimes, the xylophone, glockenspiel, bells and other instruments
which have a place in all high-class
band concerts.
Among the special soloists of tbe
bans) may Ik- mentioned musician
Harry llowc, the tenor slide trombone soloist, the peer of any; musician fleorge Town-ley, cornet soloist
whose performances rival those of
the famous Levy; and musician Robert Dixon, known to music lovers
who have  heard   him, as the silver-
toned Kuphonium soloist.
The carload exhibits and plate displays will lie boused in a temporan
building to in- erected on Albcrnl
street. Tins building Hill be 300
feet long, and longer if required.
The carload exhibits will he arranged
on a 17 feet incline of IS degrees
nround the four walls of thr building.
Tables siv feet wid** will occupy
tbe center of the building and will
extend its entire length. Tbey will
he specially constructed stair taol-s
for the display of the plate exhibits, having three twelve Inch
treads with two four inch risers on
each side. This arrangement with
a building fifty feet wide will give a
passage    way on each    side ten feet
wide     Allowing thirteen feci      nl
each end for passage way the plate
display table will lie 350 feet long
I sing ten inch plate this Immense
table will accommodate 1800 plates
of apples.     There    are file apples to
each plate, consequently a grand
total of 0000 apples will tie ou display on this table, or enough for a
half apple lo each boy and girl in
Vancouver. These   apples   will   be
the finest grown and it i.s safe to
say will average throughout thrrr
Indies in diametei if they were all
placed in a single row touching one
another, the little boy or girl stalling witli the lirst apple would
have to walk the and one ninth
miles to reach the last apple in
the row.
Suppose a greedy little boy could
eat six of those big apples each dav.
it would take Ium four vears, one
moiith aud ten days to cat all '•'
ihe apples m that row
Those bfg pri/e apples would ;«-st
a shilling or approximately M
cents eaeii Canadian money m l-ow
tion. Hence it ;**. little eo* in
London would undertake to -*.-,t
those apples it would cost Ml
p.ip.i approximately KM pound* or
It is estimated by the secretary of
the tirst Canadian National Apple
show that there will tn- 21 carloads
of apples exhibited at the big exposition. The exhibition rules require 600 boxes for a car. hence
there    will lie    a grand total of
12,600 boxes of apples on display,
a box of apples is approximately
twenty inches long. If all of these
boxes of apples were placed end to
end, and a little boy told tbat he
could have    the    last  box in the
row if he would go after it, he
would have to walk 17 and three-
fourths miles to get it.
There are 36 to 225 apples in a
box, according to si/e, and Hie
manner m which they are packed
The average would therefore DC
about 180 apples to each box, or a
total of 1,038,000 apples in the entire show. Those apples will average about two and one-quarter
inches in diameter, and if they wcte
placed in a single row  it  would     be
wn miles long. If a little
should start to walk to the
of the row. and walk seven
one-half miles a day, it would
quire three months and ibti-i
to accomplish llie feat
The owners of these apples will receive 12:,,Usui in prizes or nearly two
dollars per hot. After the show is
over the apples will sell readily at
two lo liv*.- dollars per box, sji, an
average of S ..'hi pei box or a total
of (ti.ioti. Therefore the exhibitors will receive approximate! v
$70,000 for tlie apples exhibited at
Canada's nrst National Apple show.
Now then suppose that a greedy
little boy wiio lives in London
should ask his papa to buy all of
those apples bow much would it cost
his papa at a shilling apiece. and
how long would it lake that little
boy to cal alt of lbc*n, eating six
apphs a day?

The convention will tie held this
year at Cranbrook, B.C., on October
1Mb and Hub and as the matter of
Ore protection and prevention is
very much iu the public interest, especially this year, as so many towns
and so much valuable Umber ami
other property has been destroyed)
and when we take into consideration the     appal I in-: ]<>ss of life,     tht*
lives of our brother human beings
that have lieen sacrificed in lhe vein
elloit lo protect their homes, and all
for the most putt through gross
carelessness mi the part of campers,
railway companies and others, anil
Hie fact that the matter is not
receiving half the attention it
should from the government and
others in authority, we can readily
nee the necessity of some drastic action.
It is the object of this association to do all iu Its power lo
remedy the lire evil. The association Is yet young bul so far we
have hnd splendid success. There are
similar association*-) in Alberta and
tbe eastern provinces, nml we anticipate at no very remote dute to secure
a general convention of all the western provinces for the exchange of
views and nilights-nmetit to combat
Hie fire evil. It is our object to
get a representative lo this convention from every town and community in British Columbia. We therefore urge yuu     to place the matter
before your council or community at
once, elect a representative tn this
convention and assist him financially
to attend as this is a matter of
public benefit.
A fairly representative meeting of
citizens, interested in the V.M.C \.
movement in this city, was held iu
the Presbyterian Sunday school
room on .Monday evening, Mr. K. M
Thomasson, western secretary oi the
Y.M.C.A. presiding. I M. Dudley,
secretary of Hk* railway department
of the V..M CA. was also present.
The object ut tin* meeting wns to
discuss ways ami means of raising
the requisite funds to pay for the
furnishing of the new Y.M.C.A.
building, now Hearing completion.
The discussion was largely In-
.ortnal, everyone present being Invited to express his views ami to raise
any question he thought pertinent
to the occasion.
Mr. Thomasson pointed out that
in addition to providing the building,
tlie C.P.R. would provide the bowling
alley. He expressed regret that for
the present it would he Impossible io
secure a swimming tank, but he believed that that would he secured
Inter on.
In response to queries, Mr. .1* M
Dudley said that the ultimate management of tbe local Y.M.c A would
devolve upon a committee of citi/ens,
upon which tbe railway men       would
have a bare majority. At first the
committee appointed by V.M.C. \
management would i-e entrusted to a
headquarters, but directly organisation had been completed and the Institution vvas in running order a
committee elected by the members
would in- appointed,
Another question raised was that of
the use of the building bv tlu- C 1'
It. in the event of a strike. Mr. Dudley pointed out that under ths-ir contract with Hie C.P.R the building
was leased to the Y.M.C.A. aud
remained strictly under their control       In    ihe event of „ strike ll.c
building was regarded dlstinctl) as
neutral ground. Any man in the
employ of the railway company could
use it, whcthei a strike breaker or
not, hut the C.P.R could not dictate who should sir should not use
it, neither could Ihey Interfere with
auy man using it. Mr Dudley told
sd their experience with a Y.M.C.A.
building on the Orand Trunk railway
in the recent strike, In the course -if
which the officials had demanded thai
certain strikers be ousted therefrom.
To 'his demand the secretary in
charge ha<i replied that tlie men bad
a right to the use of tbe building
and point blank declined to allow the
men to lie interfered with. In this
attitude he was ultimately sustained
hy Hi« railroad officials, who recognized that the V.M.C.A. must Im-
Observed as neutral ground.
Plans for the s-ampaign lor funds
■were then discussed. The decision
arrived at being to hold a three
ilays' campaign, coniiitf-ticing on tbe
morning of Tuesdav. October Hth
and closing at s p in, Thursday, Oc*
tobei   1,11b.     Tbe campaign will be
preceded by special services in tho
churches on Sunday rvi-niDjc. October
'ut., and a eftJsens1 banquet in    the
Masonic ball on Monday evening. The
canvassing for funds ■*.!! t»e entrusted to a committee of Uiirt) rtttxeos,
under the supervision of Mr TbOOt*
asson, who is an expert in Hie art
Of gathering cash for V MC \. put*
poses.    The tots! sum required     .'.
16,000 and  it   is believed  that tbe
full amount can be rsised in a three

Al flrts thought, one might in- inclined to consider it Incongruous tu
use an electrical vehicle as a hearse,
but as a matter of fact the electrical hearse, moving with stately sil-
enet', is really more sliRiitliefl than
one drawn by horses, Such a liearsr
was recently constructed for a Chicago linn, ami has been in continuous
service ever sinw. Power is communicated'from the motor to the
rear wheels by means of silent chain
drive. The battery is supported Ul
der tbe main body of the vehicle iu
a compartment between the front and
rear wheels, and is adapted to tarnish sufficient current to propel the
hearse tor a instance of fifty miles.

known that the general health of a
community using u sewage polluttd
water gradually falls lower and low
er anil tlir death rate increases pro
porttonately. ol the diseases mosl
frequently following the use of a
impure water, typhoid fever hold*.
at the present day, the insist prominent position in tlie public eye. It is a
curious fact, as yet unexplained, that
tlie change Irom au impure water
to a pure supply diminishes the sickness and death rate, not only from
typhoid fever, but also from tuberculosis, pneumonia, and other serious
diseases It is also a fact* that in
certain cities using a sewage pollul-
'■il waler tbe death rate from typhoid
fever is many limes more than
tbat for cities u.sing a interest water
supply taken from the same sourc.
Oenerally speaking, there are I
methods in use for tbe filtration
public water supplies: they are known
as the "Slow Sand" nitration and
"Mechanical" filtration. In the for
hist type, tbe water filters theough
beds sif sand ansl gravel at varyi
rates of from two to the million
gallons per acre every twenty-lour
hours, according to tbe character ol

a precipitate ts firaf added tn the
water, which is then passed through
a medium of sand under pressure, tbe

done Uy a com|ie1etil sanitary in-

Uied, it resolves itself Into a (pus-
lion of primary cost and nmnial
maintenance, Tbe slow sand filters
cost, approximately, $.10,000 prr •nil-
lion callous nf the daily consumption
and about ten per cent of this per
annum for operaling; while a mechanical filter costs about one-fourth,
and, if carefully operated, a high
tlegree of elliciency ns regards purification can lie obtained. This is well
exemplified at Chatham, Ontario,
where for some years filters ot this
latter class hnve been In operation,

Renter's representative, Ima forwarded frnm Ainlieiiii details of an
Important interview wilh Ur. II. A.
Lorentz, tho Dutch explorer, who l:
the first white man to have penetrated the mysterious Central Snow
limine of New Guinea, ono ol the
peaks of which is the objective of
the Important British expedition now
working in tho country.
This portion ol New Guinea U
probably thu largest unexplored part
nf the earth's surface, as little
known as the Polar Circle, and the
immense snow-capped range, with Its
knife-edged peaks, attains a height ->f
nearly 18,000 feet.
The approach to the Snow Mountains was through welt nigh unpenetrable forest, over precipitous din's,
in a foodlcss region of intense cold.
Uut having conquered all these
obstacles, and reached the base ol
the mountains, Hr. Lorentz luiilt a
hig advance camp, and ths'ii with
Capt. van Nouhuys and twenty-five
coolies started up the mountains.
Narrating an adventure which proved
to he terrible, bul of the greatest interest, the explorer said:
"Alter eleven slays of cutting our
way through the densest forests I
huve ever Been, and iu getting over
cliffs wliich resembled nothing so
much as sides sif houses, we reached
an altitude of 0,500 ft., pretty well
"We now attempted the second
section of our climb, and for two
days ascended the mountains. Suddenly we came across a secluded valley some 5,600 teei deep running east
nnd west, which, lo our amazement,
we found to no thickly populated.
Since leaving the river there had
not heen a sign of human life, hut
now, tn our surprise, we found native villages along iiu- whole length
of the valley.
Our first encounter with these unknown natives occurred early one
morning. We wen- walking in single
file through tin- twilight, shinies
ot the great finest when we
heard mysterious mils, whirh we nt
once attributed to human beings,
Suddenly a small hand of savages,
atl armed wilh hows and arrows and
stone-axes, ran out from the jungle,
nud, to our surprise, approached us
with hands outstretched, ofTerlng us
sweat potatoes us u sign of friendship.
"On our arrival In their village
the people performed a curious ceremony hy whieli they made us blood
brothers. They sacrificed a pic. and
smeared each ot us on the forehead
with the creature's blood. This proved a somewhat awkward attention in
the case of our Mohammedan soldiers,
hut, at my earnest request, they
finally agreed lit submit, provided
that we allowed them Immediately
afterwards to undergo ceremonial
"These people lived in little huts,
all nt which were raised about ten
feet Irom the ground, access lieing
obtained by a notched pole. There
little huts we found to hn divided In
to two, one-halt being used for domestic animals—mostly pigs, who
presumably also climbed the rough
ladder—aud tho olhor half hy the
people themselves.
"We noticed that sonic of the women had tin* middle linger ol the lelt
hand cut olY. We had no means of
discovering the meaning of this, although it was clear that the mutll
atiou was made during youth and no*l
in their quite early days, all the
children having their bauds intact.
.Many of the men, too, had the
upper portion of sine of their ears removed.
"They wero very anxious for us   to
main with ihem, and tried to dissuade us from going further up the
mountains, saying that we should
surely he attacked hy the people wlm
lived there, hut we had to tear ourselves away Irom these curious
people, and proceccd ou our way
"Two days further up the mountains, at an altitude of 10,000 ft.,
we came across four people, one woman and three men, hut they were
very frightened and run away.
"After experiences which I liml it
extremely difficult to narrate we
reached a point at an altitude ol

and had named the peak after Queen
Wilhelmlna, but it was ou the return

falling headlong for luu ft., smaslied
a rib ami sustained serious Injuries
to my legs, hands, and head.
"That night was a terrible one.
and in my periods of consciousness I
sutTcrcd extreme pain. With no covering at all we were exposed for
hours ou a hare ledge. On the following day some o( the Dyaks came
up from the next camp and carried
me thither in blankets, a Journey of

"Three days further down

to leave him where we found him, as

While Uie reeciil Kail Kulr Is still
fresh in our memories it would be
well to consider one or two points
that arose in connection therewith,
with a view to preparing for the future. In the lirst place il musl he
obvious to uil men (hat if ('ran
brook's annual .-'all Fair is lo he-
come au event of first import, the
Agricultural Association rannol tot
speedily set about securing commod
ions grounds, upon which Ihey cm
in due course creel suitable build*
lugs. We are informed lhat the
Dark association would be prepared
lo dispose of their land at a reasonable figure to the Agricultural association. This is worth investigating. The land in question is admirably adapted for exhibition purposes, and as there is more than
is required for purely slmw purposes,
the remainder might well he utilized
tor experimental purposes. We are
not specially concerned as to whal
lauds are secured, bul we feel confident that the Agricultural assocla-
sjon will not secure the fullest
measure of success with Its annual
Fall Fair Until such linn- as jl se
cures grounds of its nwn, and the
Dark association's holdings appear
to be as suitable, and as conveniently
located as any other. The matter
should be taken up promptly and
carefully considered.
Whilst ou tin subject of Fall Fairs
it might he timely to suggest thai
it would    well pay the farmers       of
tins    dislriel     rgnnize a judging
school. A great lack of knowledge

thought well of, the question should

Liberals from the Pacific to the

mentally. He had a big voice and
a big In-art and served his country
devotedly during many years.
The report of the university   ci
mission has been made public.
The report itself, which i.s absolutely final and decisive as to the
mallei of site, reads as follows:
Victoria, June 28th, Dim.
To His Honor the L!cutenant-Dover-
Sir: The university site commission
begs lo submit the following reporl: lu accordance with the provisions of the university site commission act your commission have visited and made a careful examinatian of
several cities and rural districts suggested as suitable university sites
and lune selected as the location
of the university sile the city of
Vancouver. We have the honor to
he, sir, your obedient servant.
(Signed) Weldoii, chairman, 0.
Haitlh, C. C. .tones, O. I). Skeltnu,
Walter C. Murray, secretary.
Accompanying this report, in chief,
embodying the finding ot the commissioners, is an auxiliary or elahor-
ttllvc report addressed to the minister of education, Hon. Dr. Voung,
which reads as follows:
"The university site commission
are strongly of the opinion that the
university should not be placed on a
site whieli may in time be complet
h surrounded by a city. They r
spectfully suggest that not less than
380 acres be set apart for the university campus and 700 acres fsir ag-
rieultural purposes iu agriculture
and forestry. This is exclusive of a
forest reserve for forestry operations
mt a large scale.
"The commissioners are of the opinion that the most suitable sile is
al Point Orey unless the soils there
and that of the delta laud iidjsiiuitig
ate found to he unsuitable for the
experimental    work   of   the college
of agriculture. Should Point Orey
prove impossible tho commission suggests:
"Flrsl— A sile along tlio shore west
of North Vancouver, provided ths*
tunnel and bridge are constructed.
"Second—St. .Mary's hill overlooking the Pitt, Fraser and Coquitlnm
rivers, provided residences are erected for the students.
"Central Park, although conveniently situated will probably be surrounded by the cities of Vancouver
nnd New Westminster and because uf
litis and of Die absence of existing
scenic advantages is undesirable.
While the commissioners nre fully
convinced Hint it is of the highest
importance to have all the faculties
of the university doing work of university grade, located together, they
believe Dial owing to the diverse
conditions of agriculture iu the ptevince that ii is advisable to divide
Hie work of agricultural education
hciweeii ihe college of agriculture at
the university ami schools of agriculture of secondary grade located in
ihe di Hereof centres. Tbe collogo oi
agriculture should conduct researches, provide courses leading to a
degree, supervise the extension work
and school of agriculture, These
schools should he established in ('.injunction with the demonstrating
farms iu lhe capital centres
should provide short courses,
lending over the winter months of
two or three years for the sons sif
farmers. r.ucli school might specialize in one or moro branches such as
horticulture, dairying, etc.
"Similarly technical evening
schools might he opened iu lhe different coal mining centres lor the
preparation of candidates for mining
certificates and In the metal districts for the assistance of prospectors and others.
"The commissioners have been
greatly impressed by the rtchncsr,
variety and extent of llic natural
resources sd this province and by the
very generous provision made for the
endowment of the university, and
they are of the opinion that if the
university adopts a policy of offering
salaries ranging from $3500 to
$50,000 to its professors it will attract men ot tho highest ability who
hy iheir ss-ientitic investigations and
outstanding reputation will not only
materially aid in developing the resources of the province but will also

Tbe object of his visit was to -ice
for himself, being an expert in Ashing
matters, and ta be able to report to
the people whom he represents, whether or not the fisheries there are
worth Investing British capital ia.
In a short lime he will return to
Kngland, ami be told The Toronto
Globe that he hail a most favorable
report to convey, and that he wuuld
strongly advise that steps be taken
to have a ('ana-lian fishing Industry
established in British Columbia backed by British capital.
"It seems a pity," be said, "that
such a remarkable source of fish
should not only he lost to Brltafa.
but to Canada. There is an abundance of fish—that Is, wbtteftsh, such
as halibut, cod, and numerous breads
if smaller ones, as well as 3 Ur/.e
supply of salmon. The fisheries extend right from Vancouver north to
At tlie present time these wat-rs
are used exilusively by AjBettcavl
and Japanese, there bring no Canadian fishermen at all."
In order to carry nut the scheme
an enormous amount ol money will
have to be provided, and Sir (ieorge
sals) that the people in England
whom he represented would in all
probability go to the Canadian
eminent for assistance with th«*ir
project, which assistance would hk-i-
!y  take    the form of   a subsidy
Sir George Doughty was ver; optimistic about the suer-Ms of th'*
scheme He looked upon Ihe Grand
Trunk Pacific as a very helpful factor iu the development of such an
industry, as it would facilitate tbe
transport at I'm of the fish. The
lack of such transportation in the
past be looked upon as one of the
primary reasons why the Indnatrj
had not been Inaugurated. With a
Canadian fishing industry in the
western waters of Canada pns-u-ssing
tighis and prmlmes on line*, similar
those enjoyed by the fishermen In
the eastern waters of the Dominion,
Sir (ieorge said that fanarti '•
wealth and powei would be materially enhanced.
I..en in lhe event of his friend**- in
Britain being unable to cany
through tlie scheme of s'stablishing
lhe Industry, he thought that some
thing should certainly In- done b)
the people and government of Canada to conserve to themselves a
portion "f the riehflfl lhat were right
fully theirs He is looking forward
to a movement bring made fn regard
to tbe matter shortly after his return to Kngland, so that it will not

people realize the danger that may
lie even iu   the smallest  tlesh wound.
Take a simple illustration. When a
knife, a rusty needle, a splinter ol
dirty wood, a bathed wire fence,
nr a thorn, scratches tbe hand, the
latter is inoculated with germs, of
which the nir about us is full. Directly these genus nre introduced
through the breach in (he skin, a

As soon us applied in a sore or a

with ordinary ointments. Zam-Buk
is a unique preparation, possessing
antiseptic, soothing anil healing

It is nol onl) a unique healing
balm, but it is alsn a skin food. For
all skin diseases ami injuries—cuts,
bruises, burns, eczema, chafing, ulcers, ringworm, etc., it is without
espial. It is also used widely for

For partloulari n|.|.ly to
A.   Lund,   Wardner,
Uiill-.li Columbia
(Canadian Farm.)
British Columbia's fruit market
commissioner is still complaining of
tlit* grip thai American growers and
shippers have upon the north wesl
market. While it i.s true that Uril-
ish Columbia and Ontario do Mt
produce fruit enough to supply this
market, yet the largo quantity al
surplus fruil that is being sold is
having a tendency to break iln* price
There i.s also another point to be
considered. The American fruit, especially lhe California article, c es
in much earlier than iln- Canadian,
and, if sold freely in markets upon
whidi Canadian growers aro depending for the purchase of their output,
will make it haul Foi (lie lion.c
grower to sell some of his small
fruits at all. This may serin some
what pessimistic, hut the press ilea
patches lold us ihal on .Inly 1 llh,
seventy-live carloads of plums, pt'nrs
and peaches were shipped to Ibe
eastern Slates nml Canada rrom
Sacramento. Tlie only remedy
would appear to lie for the Canadian
growers to make very early estimates of their crop and close the sale
of same with jobbers nt as early .1
date as possible.
Dealers in the southern dislriel ui
Alberta report that what Hritish Co*
liunhiu fruit they have received this
year lias come in very tine condition,
but that they could not get more
than twenty-five per cent of enough
to supply the demand in small fruits,
Considering that, the latest returns
of tils; Kootenay Fruit (irowcrr' association show tbat tbey received
an average of 42.22 pel crate for
strawberries, over ten cents a pound
for cherries, and $2.75 for raspberries, ail prices net, it will he seen
that there is au opportunity for
somebody to get into that - line nl
business pretty extensively.
It is rather surprising to lind that
apples have already been shipped into
Alberta from as far south as Colorado. A car of Den Davis was received in Calgary about the 25th of
•Inly, and sold for from $2.25 in
$2.50 per box.
In place sif the association which
has been handling their fruil, the
fruit growers of Kootenay In ihr
vicinity of Nelson propose to form a
joint stock company. If the scheme
is successful it is likely that a
cooling warehouse will be creeled in
Nelson. A jam factory located at
that point is meeting with good success and finding a very ready market
for its products. It is a greal assistance to tbe growers, as iu this
way they arc aide to dispose of all
their second grade and over ripe trull
at a satisfactory profit.
Ity alt appearances Hie Doukhohnr
ranch at Waterloo will be a considerable factor in fruit production before
many years elapse. Since taking
possession of their holdings there,
they have clcarcsl several hundred
acres or land. And iu order that au
eastern reader may understand, let it
lie said that it was clearing in tbe
real sense sif the word. When they
began it was virgin bush, hut when
Ihey were through, not a stump or
root was left. It meant work, imt a
Doukliolior is nol afraid of work.
There are few sections of Kootenay
where lhe same amount of progress
has been masle iu such a short time.
There aro one thousand in the
Waterloo colony, exclusive of the
number thai are iu the colony at
(Irand Forks. They are just finishing a contract with the c.l'.lt- lor
supplying 100,000 railway lies. lu
their colony they have three sa«
mills ami are negotiating ior thu
purchase of a fourth. As fast Its
their land.is being cleared tha> are
planting it in fruit trees, mil in a
few years it will he one of the u auy
beautiful garden ipo'.s ol Southern
Hritish Columbia.
Arrangements arc about completed
for tlie selection ot '■'■■• various demonstrations fruit farms which the
provincial government arc establishing throughout the province. Vancouver Island will have two; lower
mainland two, or perhaps three;
Yale-Kamloops ilistrict four; Columbia Valley sme; Boundary one, or perhaps two; and the Kootenay and
Arrow Lakes siv. The horticulturists of each dislriel will consider
Irom the applications Iho best parties to whom the work will he On*
trusted, The present plan contemplates the   applicant   furnishing    live
acres of laud which the government
will work and plant Thd owner is
then expecled to follow the government's instructions In developing the
tract; ami demonstrations as to proper met bod of spraying, pruning, etc,
will lie held nt various times by the
government experts for tho benefit of
the neighborhood.
Exhibitors In all parts of tho province appear to lie taking a keen,
healthy interest iu tho Canadian National Apple Show which will bo
held in Vancouver. With a big
apple crop in Hritish Columbia, it
promises tn he the biggest thing of
its kind that lias ever been held in
Tho dry senson has brought about

done in the way of a huge power
scheme wbicb would provide every
section of lbs- district wilh water so
tbat in Ibe event of a dry season in
the future, they would be  prepared.
In ibis connection the recent Irrigation Congress at Kamloops held
sonic very Interesting sessions. One
afternoon the delegates proceeded up
the river twelve miles by steamer
to where a large company had a biii
project under way. A concrete
flume is hciiif*; constructed, and then*
will tic seventeen miles of canals to
convey the water to thu various
fruit plots.
The following resolution was passed
at the congress;
"That we earnestly petition tbo
provincial authorities to take sucb
steps as will lead to the cmu-tim-nt
of laws wbicb will permit the government tt) hnd assistance to Irrigation projects under similar conditions
to those by wbicb tbey render aid to
railway projects."
Another resolution was passed asking that tbe Dominion ami provincial
authorities co-operate In acquiring
suitable locations for reservoirs f*»r
the storage of water Intended for Irrigation purposes.

Thu weather was very dark and

thousands of acres of splcudisl limber for milling props and scaflolding
has hem destroyed by lire, and
passing I cannol help but mention
the iiutripw-miuded public spirit
shown by a great many people
regard to trying to extinguish smalt
tires when they see them started,
near at haiul. In several Instances
this season letters were sent to ibe

excuse given vvas "thej did nol think

every citizen to help at onco to
extinguish any small lire he maj
*>es' and apply for recompense tn the
government afterwards.
Vou will also see that no fewer
than 12 fires were left hy careless
