Terrible Tragedy—Little (llrl's Body Soon Recovered, but
All Efforts to Resuscitate Her Fall — Searchers Flock to
Scene of Accident to Aid In Recovering Bodies.
One of thc most distressing accidents which has happened
in the history of Cranbrook and district occurred at St. Mary's
Lake Sunday evening last, about 8 o'clock, when Mrs. A. C.
Blaine and Mrs. Archie Moe, of this city, and little Miss Thelma
Herrltt, daughter of Otis Herritt, of Kimberley, were drowned
in the St. Mary's River, when a small launch in which they had
started out on a cruise with others, capsized. St. Mary's
lake is a well known picnic and summer resort, about twenly-
oight miles north of the city.
From information gleaned from one of the party, it appeare
Mr. and Mrs. Blaine, Mr. and Mrs. Moe and Mr. and Mrs. Wllber
Hill had motored lo the lake Sunday afternoon, intending to
enjoy a Sunday evening lunch there and return to the city later
in the evening. A pleasant afternoon was spent and all was
merry until OtU Herritt, who had only recently acquired the
summer camp there started out with some of the visitors in one
of the small gasoline launches which are available there for visitors. Some difficulty was experienced In getting the boat away
from shore, It being lodged on Ihe rocks. In the boat were Mr.
and Mrs. Moe, Mrs. Blaine, Otis Herrltt and his daughter, Thelma, aged about fourteen years, and a young woman pupil of the
High School here.'kiBS Faith Ewing. of Klmberley.
The small craft started on the cruise, but It seems something was wrong with the steering gear or rudder, as the little
Herritt girl who was manipulating it could not get it to perform
Others of the party, Mr. Hill and Mr. Blaine, who had remained behind, not earing to lake the cruise, Mr. Blaine being
interested in a paper, and Mr. and Mrs. Hill because their little son was frightened al the engine's exhaust, saw at once thai
something might happen were the party to gel out in the current
flowing from the lake into the river through a narrow passage.
Mr. Hill rushed to the breakwater timbers and as the little crafl
went by he was passed a Binall clothesline rope, and endeavored to make it fasl or hold the craft, lying flat and putting all the
strength at his command into the attempt to prevent it get-
ling under (lie bridge (here and in the danger zone.
He was unsuccessful, the rope slipping from his hands after he had almost been drawn Into the raging waters himself.
Mr. Moe was standing erect in the boat, assuring the party
all would be well, mid nlso endeavoring lo keep Ihe craft righted,
lie appeared to he navigating the boat fairly well, Imt tfiose on
shore, Including a returned soldier, named Shepperd, who was
guarding lhe bridge against driftwood, etc., felt uneasy for the
parly, and when tbey passed out of sight around a sharp curve,
followed in Mr. Blaine's car. Tbey had gone some distance and
though! (bey were ahead of Ibe craft, but could not sight II then.
Proceeding further down stream. Sheppard thought he saw Ihe
craft und suid all were on board.
lt was later however, Ihal the small boat was seen upside
down wllh Horrltt, clinging tn the boat. Mr. Moe had made
the shore safely nud was endeavoring to rescue thc others. He
swam alter bis wife some distance down stream and in an
effort to aid Herritt he encountered the body of the llttlo Herrltt

assistance the search was begun in earnest it being fuully
realized that all the missing
had met a watery grave.
Mrs. Moe came (o Cranbrrok
only a short time ago with her
husband who is a brakeman on
the C.P.R. and was well-liked
and popular with all her acquaintances. Some relatives
from the East have since arrived, after having been advised
of the accident. _.
Mrs. Blaine is survived by
her husband and two little sons,
aged about 8 and 6 years. She
was most popular among her
acquaintances and a sweet life
has passed ln a most untoward
Both Mrs. Blaine and Mrs.
Moe were about 32 years of age.
The remains of the little Herritt girl aro at Kimberley as we
go to press, but an Inquest is
to be held before interment is
made. Her parents wil have
the sympathy of the colony at
Klmberley in their sad bereavement.
Herrit had only recently acquired the camp, it is said, and
intended operating It for those
who frequent the place during
the summer time.
Whether an Investigation'will
be conducted into the snd tragedy or not beyond the inquest
has not been learned, but
it is hinted some move will be
made to make the use of tbe
boats at the place safe by having them properly equipped in
the future.

Miss Swing says she had a

ln the party at one time, but Is
not certain whether It was Mrs.
Moe or Mrs. Blaine, but that
they slipped from her grasp.
She observed Mrs. Blaine at

of the directing of the rescuers, the mounted police also being among those who were assisting In the search.
No trace of the missing members of the party was found up
until the time of going to press

been active In the search. Not

Funeral of Victim  of  Mysterious Tragedy Held ut Fernle

Following a brief coroner's enquiry
on Tuesday of lost week at Fernle, at
which evidence relating to Identification was taken, the funeral of the late
John Telfer look place at Fernle on
Thursday last, a service being held at
the Union Church thero. Tin- funeral

Fernie Free Press, "the solution appears to be as elusive as It was in the
beginning. The authorities, since tiie
matter was placed iu their hands
some four days following the disappearance, have never let up In Ihelr

considerable mass of evidence will be
tendered at the Inquest, from which
it ls hoped that the jury will be able
to reach a conclusion. However, In

sworn statements of fact adduced before the coroner's Jury.
Ferule. June 21, — The inquest heing held regarding the cause of tlie
death of John Telfer, late road master on this division of tlie Crows Nest
line of the 0. P, II., was continued on
Friday night last, the hearing being
held in lhe provincial courthouse, the
court room being tilled with townspeople Interested ln the mystery surrounding the death of a man so well
known along the lint.
Coroner Thomson Is taking every
possible step to unravel the mystery,
but Friday's sitting deepened rather
than threw any light upon the mys
tery of the happenings at the Elk Hotel on the night of Teller's disappearance. Twelve witnesses, Including
Frank Label], the hotel proprietor,
Constable Gorman, the provincial policeman at Elko. Dr. Asseltlne, (lie

Cranbrook, wlio had performed an
operation upon Teller for gall stones

among the witnesses heard. Other
witnesses yet were to be heard, nnd
until the result of the analysis of tlie
contents of the dead man's stomach
has been received from Vlcoriu, the
inquest was adjourned till Friday of

"There will be no confusion of the

"We are opportunists." So
J. S. Woodsworth has declared
iu his writings, ln lecturing
here thia week, .Mr. Woods-
worth make.-, for his occasion
the Winnipeg strike last year.
Hut lo a vast number today,
whether lie ohoses to ad
mil it or not, the Winnipeg
strike, its causes and personalities, has passed into history.
What lias, however, come into
ihe limelight, more prominently is the economic aspect of the
great class struggle which the
strike developed into. It drew
into direct conflict the workers
and those who for want of a
better designation have been
termed the citizens.
Naturally in such a bitter
contest, much was said on both
sides In Ihe heal of battle that
in sober thought would have remained unsaid. But at this
juncture of the world's history,
when nations seem linancially
sick even unto death, no possible remedy should be allowed
10 pass unheeded. So il is thai
everyone ought to interest
Ihemselvcs in world economics.
Perhaps if the subject could be
given a somewhat simpler
name, more would be attracted
to it. But that after all is no
reason for passing it up,
A doctor who diagnoses a
case correctly, but whose prescription falls to achieve a remedy, is not generally credited
as a success. So for the sake
of argument, let il be agreed
Ihat Mr. Woodsworth's diagnosis of the worlds' economic
complaint — too much curren-
c y—- is correct. What is his remedy? No one is prepared to
dispute the fact that a desperate slate of affairs calls for a
desperate remedy yet al. tlle
same time it is equally true that
thero is no need to resort to
amputation when a little bloodletting may effect a cure, and
that with less disturbance to
the patient's system, and with
less fear of complications. Mr.
Woodsworth very frankly avows that confiscation of "surplus wealth" by the state is the
solution of the problem. If
there is a plethora of currency
floating around Ilie country in the shai>e of paper money, bonds, etc., the thing to do
Is to gather it in and burn
it, or get rid of It and whatever obligation it represents
In some equally effective way. i
This Is confiscation, pure and
simple; and as a policy It is not
likely to commend Itself as al
solution for the problem. Would
not such an arbitrary proceeding he very much    along thel

Until July 15 you have a chance to
Bel yourself rialit by seeing thut your
name is on lho new voters' list, which
closes on thut date. If you want to
vote un lhe prohibition plebiscite or
vote at the next election, you must
personally see thnt your application is
in for registration. The old list is
in the discard nnd ;t new one Is in the
making, Make sure that you are not
in the discard when it eoines time to
deposit your vole. If you arc a British subject, of Hie age of 21, of have
booome a naturalized citizen of Canada, have lived six months In the
province nnd oue month in tilt' con-
stltuney, register, and register now.
After July 16tb, having set yourself rljglH by registering, you are expected to keep to the right thereafter
in tlie Interior of B,C, the rule of
Ihe roud being changed on that dal
and then wheu election day arrives,
which may be. soon, you will just naturally "turn to the right" and John
Oliver will become leader of the Opposition. — Kamloops Standard-Sentinel.
Which Is More Wasteful?
Many peoplo object to ihe monarch-
iul form of government on the ground
Hint Hie money spent in the maintenance ur royal families nntl their de
pendents is an extravagance which
should hr, done away with in these
modern days of efficiency. The republican form of jtoreriiucnl ts usually advocated by such people as one by
which public money Is not "wasted"
on "useless frills." lu answer U)
such argument*, il might bo asked,
whence como the millions upon millions of dollars that are spent by United States political organizers In the
iliiiiilrlciiuial presidential elections of
that country, and In the numerous
lionms of contenders for the nomination by each of the two great parlies?
Tho answer is that It Is tlie people's
money, und If they tlo not pay directly under the republican system as it
operates across the border, everybody
knows Ihat they pay Indirectly.
In this connection it Is interesting
lo note that a writer In as conservative u newspaper as the Now Vork
Times estimates Ihul Hie cost of this
year's election lu all Its phases will
tie at least twenty million diillnrs and
liorllnps iweuiy-iivo or thirty millions,

An "Inadvertency"
The newspaperman is bo accustomed to finding himself In
thc position of the under dog.
that wheu he sees himself on
the best end of a joke he may be
excused for smiling in a public
way. The Herald's dreary path
of business last week brought us
lo one of these bright spots, and
contemplation of 'the singular
occurrence at sundry times
since has never failed to lift us
above the mundane things ol
our workaday world, and allows
us to smile in spite of frowning
The cause whereat we have
smiled may perhaps he apparent
from a study   of   two   letters
which we reproduce below. Both
ll will be noted, hear the same
date, but the first letter, not being deemed of sufficient importance to be registered, made a
faster trip through, and reached
our astonished hands in
plenty of time for inclusion in
the current issue. It must be
confessed that the advertisement was put together with
hands that trembled with shame
and humiliation as the past political sins of thc Herald — how
numerous, we are told! — came
up before us, and for it all to receive the blessing and benediction of the Oliver government,

just'as though we were one of;

to don sackcloth and ashes, and
had thought up some nice kind
things to say concerning Honest John — the epithet was no
misnomer after all, we thought
—- and his true hearted company, in token of his having extended the olive branch.
Exactly one hour after the
last of the paper had been printed, a registered letter lay open on the office desk, and Its
contents, so brief and businesslike in phraseology, was affording us untold merriment.
We liked it not so much for
what it said, as for what it left
unsaid. Picture the consternation that would reign in thc department, when this heinous
blunder was discovered! Someone probably had to spend an
uncomfortable half hour on the
ministerial carpet facing the
music in a somewhat uncomfortable manner, while thc Herald enjoyed Ihe self same tune
immensely when its echo reached home.
But the hideous mistake had
been made, and how to rectify

all costs! Not by any possible
chance must Ihe duly qualified
electors1 who cither through
crass ignorance or deliberate,
choice remain ln Ihe outer darkness and read the Herald, he allowed to put their eyes on an
official announcement as to the
importance of registering for a
vote In the forthcoming political activities. It is true that Ihe
said readers number only two or
three — speaking in thousands
— and also that, the announcement might not come to
their notice any other way than
through these columns; but
what is that compared to the
squandering of ten dollars or so
of public money? Not being of
the elect, presumably, Ihese benighted voters should not expect
to get. themselves informed on
this matter at all. If they do
happen to bear of It accidentally, they must, of course, be
allowed to vote; and If they do
not happen to hear ot it, well—
what particular harm is done?
In passing, however, let the
Government have full justice in
this matter. We have it In
black and white that they ad
mit an "Inadvertency!" Has
Ihis ever been known to happen before? Open confession
is good for the soul, and if the
powers that be had not been
so particular about enclosing
their confession in a registered
letter, but had trusted to the ordinary mails, the fatal advertisement might never have appeared.
A good joke lives a long time,
and the story of how the Herald was handed a plum when it

not asked to withdraw also any

Two   Notable   Canadians
'T-'j notable 0am1-Mans were nude honorary
Umfcera of the Canadian Institute of Civil Engineers
M tho annual meeting of the Institute recently held
Hn Montreal, Lord Shaugbnessy, the Chairman of the
Cwuudlan Pacific Railway, and Sir John Kennedy,
the dean of Canada's engineering profession. Although Lord Shaughnessy fs not a professional engineer, and therefore could not become a regular
member of tbe Institute, he was made an honorary
member, ln view of his distinguished career u tho
head of the Canadian Pacific Hallway, tn which position for many years he has been Intimately connected with engineering, and probably employed more
engineers than any man In Canada.
For the presentation there waa one of the most
distinguished gatherings of engineers seen In Montreal in a long time. The presentation was made by
Mr. Walter J. Francis, the retlrtnij president of the
Institute, and as the two veteran Canadians received
th«ir badges they were greeted with prolouged applause.
A singula-! honor was beftowed upon them, with
the presentation of solid gold badges of the Institute,
which were exact repHcu of ihat presented to the
'Prince of Wales. When the Prince was iu Montreal
last year he consented to becomd un honorary member of tbe Ungjnet.rlng Institute, and ln honor of the
event a specfal badge wud struck, engraved with thc
crest of tlie Institute and tbe Prince's name on the
badge. Since then ten more of these sold badges
have been struck from the same die. and ten honorary members elected and presented with these
Itolden replicas of the Prime's badge. In this Lord
Shaughnessy and Sir John Kennedy will find themselves In distinguished company Bitch as their own
attainments warrant.
The ten present wearers of tbe golden badge ol
honorary membership in ibe Engineering Institute
of Canada are H. K. 1) the Prince of Wales, His
Excellency tbe Duke or Devonshire, tlie present Gov-
ernor-Oeneral, ii. R H. the Duke of Connaught, who

and Sir John Kennedy may well feel honored to be
Prolonged applause greeted the two new honorary member* tu President Walter J. Francis pinned
the golden badges on their lapels, a note of pathos
being added by the fact that Sir John Kennedy
will never see hia, his eyesight having completely
failed him during the past number of years.
The applause was renewed when Lord Shaughnessy rose to reply. The Chairman of the Canadian
Pacific said that although he, ooutd not claim ths
honor of being an engineer his many yean as
President of the C, P. R. bad brought blm into
very Intimate relations  wltb  tbat profession.
"I have probably employed more engineers ot
various kinds than any man in Canada" said His
Lordship, "and I have always had the highest
respect tor tbe members of tbe profession, and
never found them break their trust. In engineering matters I always relied entirely upon their
expert advice, and the Canadian Pacific was aevei
the loser for It. Of course there were mistakes
made during the years.- but both were jointly
responsible, and the C. P. R. did not pass the blame
on to the engineers, but went to work to profit
by any mistakes made—and there were not many."
In conclusion Lord Shaugtmesijy made brief reference to the encroachment of years, which bad
brought a new President to the Canadian Pacific,
Mr. E. W. Beatty. He said tbat in all probability
he would not have many years to wear the golden
badge of bis honorary membership of the Engineering Institute, but that he efcould always treasure
It with pride and a warm gratitude for the honor
conferred upon him.
Sir John Kennedy, wlio sat with his old friend,
I.ord Shaus-.hnessy, also made a brief response.
He spoke of lhe Importance of the engineering profession, especially in the upbuilding of a young and
developing country sueh as the Dominion. In fact
he considered thai the progress of Canada and ths
advancement or the engineering profession were on
parallel lines. Ah Dean of the profession he recall. (1 the visit of tho Prince of Wales (tlie late

A case of much interest came ui>
for hearinK in Fernie last Saturday,
when Wm. Kerr of tlmt place wan
charged under ttie Prohibition Act
with having in Iiis poHeession on premise,* otlier than a private dwelling,
a in rue quantity of liquor. The cu»e
waa an aftermath of a mid on the
room occupied l>y Kerr carried out
by the Chief of the Penile police-
The Pernie Preo Plena tolls tlie
.(tory of tlie hearing on Saturday laut
an  follows:
The testimony adduced showed I hut
Mr. Kerr occupied u single room, and
hey, gin, mm mid brandy, and five bar-
in addition to mime M2 canon of will).
relfl of intoxicating llquorH, there was
a stove, Home conking utensil*, some
i.ntiiMt.s, a bed. a dressing table, table
and chairs. Tbe Crown also adduced that the promises below were oc-
upied by tho Crown Liquor Export
Co., whllo in the building upstairs
there wns a photographer's studio,
and premises until recently occupied
as a tailor shop. Also that from n
pnrtyy stairway and hallway, en-
Mitneo could bo made to the Penile
'lub, Mr. Kerr gave In evidence that
tho room was occupied by him as n
private dwelling and that he ate his
meals there nnd slept there.
At un adjourned session on Tuesday
the Crown called Mrs. A. Wynlt. proprietress of tlie Pernio Motel, and Mrs.
B. I. Martin, waitress in the Pernie
Hotel, to rebut the testimony of Mr.
Kerr, concerning partaking his meals
'.n the room wherein the liquor was
found. Mrs. Wyatt testified that Mr.
Kerr was employed by her nnd tbat
the remuneration paid to him did not
include meals of board, nor so far ntf
she knew he did not take bis meul.*
at tbe Pernie Hotel. Mrs. Martin
staled thut Mr. Kerr usually took bis
breakfast at thc Pernie Hotel, but
with regard to any other meals she
could not stnto positively. She had
only been employed at the hotel about two weeks. ,
Lengthy argument was submitted
by P.C. Lawe, counsel for the accused, on the ground that tbe case for the
Crown failed to show (hat the prom-
'..rs wherein tho liquor was found
was not a dwelling within the meaning of the Act. The Crown submitted that In view of tbe plnces of business being upstairs in the block, and
further that the Aet clearly specified
suite of rooms, the premises in question could not be Interpreted as a
private dwelling.
The magistrate adjourned the case
till Thursday last in order to review
the evidence and consider the authorities submitted, and in tbe afternoon
of that day found the accused guilty.

In irrigating urn in, tlie point to
bear In mind Is tlie wutir requirement
and when to apply it. In many grain
sections where irrigation is practised-
only one or two Irrigations may bi
possiblo and the condition to guard
against is this: do not force grain to
grow rank straw, if you cannot give
It a good supply of water later than
June or early in July, or the rank
growth will fall down during the lu
tense heat of July and the grain will
not Ijll. If, on the other hand, the
grafti is allowed to grow slowly and
make a growth of 12 to IS Inches by
the end of June, it will stand ever so
much more hot, dry weather, and the
Btraw will not be so weak and liable
to rust. The very beat preparation
of the soil Is necessary; this preparation is made possible by crop rotation. Grain should be preceded by
u hoed crop to clean tlie woods. For
grain spring plowing is proferahle,
and sow the grain as early as frost
danger is over nnd mark for irrigation
as. soon us seeded. This allows the
seeds to fall in the furrows and grow
there. Tlie advantage of spring
plowing over fall is this: a much
deeper seed hed is procured Into whicli
irrigation water will penetrate quickly and deeply and the soil Is iu better
physical condition to retain it. Willi
good tiling* und soil -grain can bo
grown well with six inches of water-
Where grain is grown for hay It Is
well to force tho growth a little by
more water earlier.
riilj Years a Queen
Jubilee Day, June .list, 1887, was a
day long to be remembered by those
who witnessed the t vents of that period. Fifty years had Queen Victoria
ruled over the British people, and iu
that lime she hud endeared herself to
all classes of her peoplo. Tens of
thousands knew her in tlie more intimate visits idie made to her people,
lu tlie world "The Queen" was the
honored title she bore among all nations. Mer life lmd had its full measure of scrrowa as well as pleasures
aud honors, and when she had reigned fifty years it was lhe desire of her
majesty that In Westminster Abbey,
the place whoro she had been crowned, she should return thanks with ber
people for the prosperity of her reign.
It was a day of "Queen's weather,"
a delightful day when with a mighty
caluleade in all the richness of uniform und dress such an occasion demanded, she made her way through enormous crowds lo the Abbey. In the
line were tlie Prince of Wales, destined to rule in later years as King Edward VII,; the Crown Prince of Germany, the Crown Prince of Austria,
and many other members of the royal
families of tlie continent.
None entered into the services in
the abbey with greater spirit than the
iiueen herself, for she was a devout
worshipper of the greater King, from
whom she acknowledged the wisdom
that had made the reign so successful.
It was exactly at 1.30 o'clock the service ended, and she rose from the
throne she had occupied as a signal to
re-form tlie procession for tlie return
lo the palace.
London was a gay place that evening. Thc houses were gaily decorated, while from tlie north of Scotland
to tlie south of England bonfires blazed from most of the hills; beacon
fires were blazing from ull the hills.
Thirty thousand children romped In
play hi Hyde Park, each being provided wiih a meal pie, a bun. u piece of
ealto, an orange and u mug. The women of the British Isles presented
her majesty with nearly $400,000 in
honor of tlie occasion-

Vancouver Company Taking up
Work on Toby Creek, Which
Promises Good Result*
(Special to the Herald)
INVERMERE. June 23. — Amongst
otiier mining development Which is being vigorously prosecuted within the
Windermere Mining Division at tlie
present time te the work which is being carried on by the Toby Creek Mining Company, Limited, of Vancouver,
recently formed with a capital of
$.100,000. This company liavo acquired the interests of the old holders in
tlie Maple Leaf and Silver Ring properties on tiie Jumbo fork of Toby
Creek, situated about UG miles west
of here. Thtse properties will be easily accessible by automobile as soon
as the road which has been in bad repair is completed, aud on which the
government lias a gang of men now
working. About live miles requires
to bo reconstructed or rebuilt, In addition to a trail already used.
The properties named are a tremendous ledge of silver lead ore of about seventy-live Teet in width. At
present there is a gang of eight expert miners at work. The tunnel ot
121 feet has been cleared up and more
tunnelling with cross cutting Is being
carried through, the intention being to
catch tho rich bodies of oro which lie
hidden in the depths. About one hundred tons of concentrating oro an*
now lying on the dump ready for shipment and it is more ttiau likely-that
a number of cars will be sent to the
smelter, once shipping Is commenced.
Mr. W. L. Smith, of Seattle, is the local manager, who hns complete
charge of the supervision.
Long before the advent or the
Wheat grower hundreds of vnrtetlea
of small frulta grew in tbe sheltered
■pou of that great north-west of the
American Continent, now known as
the Canadian Prairie Provinces of
Alberta, Saskatchewan aud Manitoba.
Several varieties of wild currants
and berries, of a most delirious flavor, are still found throughout these
three provinces, and frult-plcklng
•acurslouM form one of the most delightful diversions ln the life on tbe
(arm there, lu tho woodluuds, be-
plde the creeks, lakes and rivers, lt
does not take long during the season
for the women-folk and the children
lo pick sufficient wild strawberries,
-raspberries, saskatoon!), red, black
and white currants, gooseberries,
•to., to keep the family well supplied
In preserves until the following sea-
Where the wild varieties of fruit
fcrow so profusely It ts natural to ex-
EKt that some, at least, of the cul-
vated varieties will grow equally
•ll; and this expectation bas been
realized by hundreds of farmers tn
Western Canada who have made a
hobby of growing small frulta. Their
success shows that with reasonable
care and attention there ls au opportunity to develop fruit raising on
the Canadian prairies into something
more than a vocation of a few farm-
en. It could possibly be developed
Into an Important Industry.
Much valuable Information concerning varieties of the different
kinds of fruit most adaptable to the
conditions prevalent on the prairie
farm has been gathered by thc horticultural departments of the Provincial Universities of Man.ioba, Saskatchewan and Alberta and by the
experimental stations scattered
throughout tbe country. At the University of Alberta, at Edmonton,
which Is more than three hundred
amies north of the International
boundary, a large number of varieties of currants, raspberries, and
strawberries, bave been grown with
•oosplcuous success for many years,
At least a down varieties of currants have done well, growing very
hardllj and giving heavy yields of
•itratMly delicious fruit, Ruby
Chsllt, led Cherry. Red Dutch and
IftM   NHi   Ih   UtemmmfUetm^iU
(1) Strawberries grown In Alberta.
(2) A Fertile strawberry patch,
the best of the red kind. White
Qrape and White Dutch of the
white, and the Black Maples,
Prolific, Victoria gnd North Star
of the black currants. Several
varieties of red, black and golden
raspberries, particularly tbe red,
have also been grown with success at
Edmonton. The Sunbeam and Cuthbert are the favorite raspberries.
Their flavor Is fine, they yield heavily, and the former, particularly,
ripens very early ln tbe season. The
Herbert, Turner, King aad Louden
varieties have also been very successful The Caroline ban proved
to be the best of the yellow raspberries. Black ber riers have not been
so satisfactory as the red and the
yellow at Edmonton, but tn other
parts of the country tbey are being
grown with more or less success.
Strawberries are quite at bome on
the Canadian prairies. They are, Indeed, tbe most popular of the small
fruits grown In tbe farm garden. It
seems safe to predict that before
many seasons have elapsed these
luclous berries will be grown and
marketed on a commercial scale In
many parts of Western Canada
hitherto reputed for wheat raising
and stock raising only. For many
years strawberries grown on tbe Demonstration Farm of the Canadian
JMUto JUUwat at qtrsthmnga Ah*
berta, were supplied to this company's dining car and hotel services,
snd tbelr delicious flavor was very
highly spoken of.
Tbe grower of strawberries oa •
commercial scale ln this northern
territory will have a great advantage. His berries will ripen later
than those grown further south, and
he will be able to bring them on tbe
market after tbe supply of her res
grown elsewhere haa become exhausted. Besides, the flavor of these
berries Is such thst the fruit would
.be able to bold Its own even If there
were any competition. From the
middle of July until tbe end of September, and sometimes later, strawberries from the Canadian prairies
could be bought on the market.
One of the most Interesting surprises prepared for the Prince of
Wales during his tour through Canada last year wai the presentation
of a box of Btrnwberrles at I.eth*
bridge, Alberta. These berries were
grown by John Hamilton on his farm
at Coaldale, near U*thhridge and
were picked tn bis garden on the
morning of the prcs-mtiuiou to tbe
Prince early ln Octnhnr. Fresh
straw-berries In October are certainly
