A Herald representative made
tour of the outskirts of the city
few days ago and had his eyes properly opened as to the rapid growth
and expansion of the residential districts of tho city and the territory
immediately adjacent thereto. It is
really surprising to note the number
of private residences going up In all
directions, particularly in the southern and eastera sections. When Slaterville is reached, one is struck by
Die rapid growth that section is making. Many tine new residences are
under way or nearing completion, a
splendid sidewalk has been laid down
, •connecting with the new sidewalk to
'the St. Eugene hospital. Altogether
Slaterville presents the appearance of
a very thriving burg, whieh must Inevitably, sooner or later, throw. In
its lot with Cranbrook.
Thc necessity for the new school in
the east end is made plainly obvious
by a visit ont in that direction. On
every hand new dwellings arc going
up, indicative of thc steady growth
and expansion of the city.
The Herald has been advised that
Mr. 13. Mallandaine is iu the field as

Kootenay electoral district. Personal
ly no objection whatever can be raised ugaiust Mr. Mullnndniui-'s candidature, lie is well known throughout
the Kootenays, has a very thorough
knowledge of the country, aud has
been more or less closely identified
with the lumber Industry, through
his connection with thu C.P.lt. B.C.

believes Unit if Mr. Mallauduiuc will
give the necessary pledge lo maintain

has secured the redress 'ol the lumbermen's legitimate grievances, his

The potaio     mallet   is one subject
to   peculiar and    unforeseen ftuctua-|
tlons,     Predictions as  to crops   ami
prices an- more difficult to make    iu
potatoes than any   other of the main
or   staple    food    crops.    Generally
speaking, tho   price received per acre
leaves   a good margin over the    cost
of production, hut ibis is fcruo  moro
as an average ot      years   than   as    j
certainty every year.
Certain factors are peculiarly essential to success with potatoes as a
main crop. The grower must stay
with tbc game, year in and year out,
so as lo make kgood on tho average.
It is essential to secure varieties
suitable to thc district, and to the
market, and to have a good strain ot
Seed of that variety. The grower
must keep down the cost of production by tbe use of machinery, and by
intelligent management. The districl
must gol into the carload-shipping
class, and he a factor iu the market
every year.
As a side issue, the potato is one
of the most profitable inter-crops in
the orchard, and for production in
small areas by men engaged in fruit
growing, poultry raising, and ia
general farming. Cnder there conditions, financial bucccss is dependent
on well selected seed of the most
desirable variety, combined witb
careful and thorough preparation of
the soil.
Soil.—Potatoes can bc grown in
tact with the tubers induces scab.
The soil should bo plowed deep and
thoroughly harrowed until well pul-
eri'/ed and loosened, t'nlikc some
crops which succeed best when the
soil is moderately firm when really
for seeding, the potato succeeds best
in soil which is loose.
Planting.—Tho time of planting,   of
course, varies with different district!
For very    early production the pot
1 toes should be planted as soon ns the
ground can be thoroughly   worked
the    spring.    If there is danger    of
frost when lhe sprouts are just above
tbo ground, tliey   can be protected by
plowing   a     little   earth     on   top ol
Main    crop     potatoes   arc usually
,.'  'planted during tho month of -May.
ai load 1    '"   ordinary practice, i! is custom-
tfttoo |;uv to plant potatoes so as to admit
j,-. 'of cultivation    in one direction only
[the rows being spaced   from 30 to 3(i
I inches.  The    sets ale  dropped about
j 12 inches apart in the rows. Ordinar-
j iiy, potatoes   are  planted practically
on   thu   level,    without throwing up
1 ridges. For   early     production,     the
seta should lw planted about 2 inches
deep, and for the    main crop    about
3 or I inches deep,    ll early potatoes
are planted   deep, many ot them will
not sprout,    because   thc ground    Is
colli.     Planting   potatoes by hand on
the   large    scale is rather expensive,
and   it   will    pay   the  large potato
grower to buy a potato planter.
Fert ilizers.—Barnyard manure and
, clover are the cheapest fertilizers for
potatoes. It is not advisable to manure heavily the year lhe potatoes are
grown, but rather to put a heavy
dressing on the year before. Potatoes
take from the soil about twice as
much potash as wheat, hut a light
dressing of manure will supply this.
'I'he cheapest way to supply the nitrogen is to grow clover and plow it
Under. If barnyard manure Is not
available, commercial fertilizers ure
often used. If potash is required, it
should Ih- put ou iu the form of the
sulphate ,,f potash. The muriate of
potash tends to form a waxy potato.
If nitrate of soda is used, it should
he put on in small dressings throughout tht- growing season. Commercial
fertilizers, if applied, ehould he distributed along the row aud mixed
with the soil. It should not be placed
in contact with the tubers.
Variety to Grow — Thc market re-
    quins a smooth,   shallow-eyed potato
variety of soils it given proper lot fair size. For the main crop,
treatment, but good drainage is es- white potato usually sells better than
sential. to a good crop. The ideal a red. Before choosing a variety to
soil for potatoes appears to bo a rich,! grow, go around and visit your neigh-
deep, driable, warm sandy loam, Weill bors, and find out whicli variety is
supplied   with   decayed    or decaying| doing   the best in your particular lo-
vegetable matter. The kind of soil
to some extent a (Teet s the quality ol
tbe tubers. Thoso grown on sandy
wiil are generally of better table
guallty than those grown on clay
soils. Now soil is most desiralde,
'and in it the tubers are generally
healthy. Potatoes require a law
amount ot moisture, thus a soil
which has the power of holding a
large amount uf moisture will give
the best results. Such a soil
ually contains plenty of humus. For
early potatoes a light, rich, sandy
loam with a south or southeast slope
will give tho best results. A warm
soil is essential for early production.
Seed.—For tbo production of early
potatoes, it is a common practice to
plant tubers of early varieties which
have been grown for several seasons
farther north. This northern grown
seed seems to give better results for
early potatoes. It is a good plan to
select vour seed potatoes from plants
with good tubers and a large quantity nf them. Medium sized whole
potatoes often give best results for
early production. For general planting, the most economical sets arc
those cut from medium-sized potatoes, anil each set should havo a
large amount of llesh and two or
three eyes. The sets should not lw cut
long before planting, and it is generally advisable to have a change ol
seed every three or four years. To
obtain the hesl returns, it is very

cal Ity. Very few growers in British
Columbia have gone in for extra ear
ly production, and in the interior ol
the province no good test has been
made with early or late varieties to
determine which are doing the best.
Thus it is impossible for us to recommend varieties for different districts.
Some ot the principal varieties
grown at present nre:
In the interior—Vick's Extra Fairly, Early Fortune, Early Hose, Early Ohio, (lold Coin, Money Maker,
Mortgage Lifter, Million Dollar, Bur-
bank. Empire state, Carmen No. 1,,
White Wonder.
On the coast—Sutton's Reliance,
Empire state, American Wonder,
Rural N'ew York, for main crop. Extra Early Moonlight, Early Puritan,
Early King, for early.
(in Vancouver Island. Raleigh is
principally grown.
Irrigation. Where irrigation Is practised, the water should only be applied when the condition of the plants
Indicates that they are in need ot
wafer, ns by thc darkening of the
foliage. Care should lie taken not
to wait until the ground is too dry,
because one can seldom cover tlte
whole field in one day.
Potatoes planted the first of May
seldom need water supplied before
the end of .tune or the lieginning of
July. Bo not  water attec thc middle
ot August so as to ifve plenty ot
time for ripening in dry earth. Cultivate ns soon ns possible after each
irrigation, (ireat care In supplying Irrigation water   is necessary for   best
ild be stirred   alter each rain.   If
laud is weedy, the more frequent
cultivation the  less  work with
hoe lo keep the area clean. From
to six cultivations, or oven more
none too many, and it is usually
found that the  crop Increases in proportion to tlte number of cultivations.
The last, two or three cultivations the
earth should In* thrown towards   the
plants if the    potatoes  arc near the
surface.     The   weeds that are      not
killed    by       the   horse    cultivator
should    lie hoed out or  pulled       by
baud. Hilling potatoes in dry sections
is a mistake of much too common occurrence.
Harvesting. Potatoes may he dug
with thc four-tined potato fork
plowed out, or dug wilh the potato
dig||T. The former method is used
when lhe area is small or the ground
stony, and also in case of digging
potatoes early, when care should he
taken in handling, not to bruise the'
tubers mole than necessary. Where
there are large areas to be dug, Uie
potato digger is essential, as digging
wilb lhe fork is too expensive, now
thai good men arc difficult to get and
wages arc high. There are a number
of good potato diggers on the market.
Potatoes, unless affected with Late
Blight, or Rot, are. ready to he dug
as soon as the tops have died, if the
weather is favorable. They should be
dug in dry weather, so that when
laken lo tho cellar or store-room
the) will bo perfectly dry. If thc potatoes are affected with Late Blight,
it is advisable to leave them in the
ground as long as possible, because
the diseased tubers will usually show
slffis of rot before they have to be
taken np on account of frost. Potatoes in wet land should be dug before
those in dry or wel l-tl rained soil, he-
cause there is a greater tendency to
Marketing. Potatoes which have
been dug iu an immature state should?
be marketed immediately and placed.
upon the market in such quantities
only as will admit of immediate consumption. The mature potatoes may
he shipped in the fall or held over until spring. Growers should lw very
part Icular about grading their potatoes before marketing them. All the
small potatoes should be picked out
and fed to the stoek. ,
Storing. Potatoes are twst stored
in a Cool, well-ventilated cellar or
root-house which is perfectly dark.
Too much stress cannot lw put on
good ventilation, lf there Is not a
good system of ventilation in thc
cellar, slats can he nailed a little
apart about five or six Inches Irom
the wall. A temporary floor with
cracks between the hoards can bc put
about six inches before the permanent
floor. This allows the air to circulate around nnd through tho pile. If
the pile is very large, slatted ventilators enn he placed here and there
from top to bottom.
Potatoes slu uld be kept at as low a
temperature as possible without
freezing, ami at the same time keep
the surrounding air as dry as possible. They should be mature when
harvested, ns skin-slip potatoes do
not keep well.
In some sections ot British Columbia potatoes are often pitted. This is
mt re often done In the drier parts of
the province. The pit should bo made
from six to eight teet wide, about
eight inches deep, and as long as
needed, The potatoes are then placed
in the pit about four feel deep and
covered with enough straw to keep
the earth from coming thrntq-Ji, and
then about one foot ol earth is placed
on top of this. Do not cover thc lop
immediately. Leave n strip along the
top for a week or two for venUlntioii.
If tbere is danger of rain, this can
lw covered with sacking. Wben this
strip is covered leave a small hole
for ventilation every eight or ten
feet. In the winter time, if there Is
danger of very cold weather, the pit
can be covered with some strawy
The value tf potatoes for seed or
for eating is greatly lessened it they
are allowed to sprout.
Diseases. The principal diseases of
the potato arc the Early and Late
Wight, Rot, and Potato Scab. The
two former   may be controlled      by

Anchoring Against Adversity
Did you ever stop to consider the vast opportunities that
beckon you in CRANBROOK DISTRICT ?
Do you know that your climatic conditions are atlractinj.;

Have you ever realized that the good lands surrounding
Cranbrook will raise vegetables, small fruits and apples that will

If vou do, why not grasp the opportunity and secure a

see the chance after outsiders have secured the choicest of
your lands.
I am placing before my clients the Robinson-Mackenzie

or later the chilling wind ot ADVERSITY and hard times
stares them in the face. Help is being laid off at the factory, tlie
mills reduce their forces, mines shut down or pinch out. the
office force is cut down, and salaries are lowered to reduce
expenses. Sometimes sickness comes to the head ot the household, and he who is usually so vigorous and jovial is pinned

feel keenly the gaunt fingers of want clutching them. These are

Through summer and autumn, winter and spring, tbe waters issue autl

tbrouirh the changing seasons, cither
in volume or temperature, evidencing
tbe geologist "s faith in the existence
of juvenile waters (waters -which
have never reached the surface) at
depths beneath the earth's crust.
Tin* process by which nature boils
water away down at immense depths
must imh-cd bo one of great Interest,
and we fain would pierce the resisting t-rust- to observe it. Such a measure, however conclusive, is by no
means practicable, and if we would
know anything of nature's sources ol

lent to reason somewhat coiudusm-ty
from experiment and observation.
lu the hands ol lhe skilled petrog-
rapber, the microscope reveals the
existence ol minute nnd sometimes
numerous inclusions of water and
water vapor in even the most ancient
rocks forming the earth's crust, and
this fact, together with iho knowledge 1 hat all volcanoes throw oil
Immense volumes of steam, gives conclusive evidence that water forms a
constituent of no mean proportion of
the e-.irlh's interior composition.
Volcanoes, too. Brrangcd as they
are with marked uniformity along
certain known lines of weakness in
the outer crust, betray in a measure tbe true condition of earth's
most inner soul, ami we are forced to
Imagine as we Struggle along in our

Above this .smouldering mass
tarth's juvenile waters exist at a
temperature far nliovc the condition
of ebullition and follow a quite natural tendency to rise. In this state
they act ns powerful solvents, ami in
their efTorls to find a passage to the

Joint nomination and election by
acclnmation would appear to he the
course ol wisdom in the mailer of the
h\e-i'lcetiuu in the Dominion constituency ot Kootenay, necessitated by
Mi. a. s. Goodevo's resignation to
accept an oiiiee of emolument. Ono
vital question alteols tbe Kootenay
district todaj more than any other,
the continued prosperity anil expan-
siit-ii ol the lumber industry. An op-
|K)rtunity now confronts, not only
tJio lumbermen of this district, hut
the electors generally, to take strong,
definite action in tin* direction of so*
iiiini!; a satisfactory solution of tills
problem. Surelj no one will he so
partj huh' hound as to even suggest,
the Idea oi sacrificing tins opportunity (oi .my purely partisan purpose.
Certain farts confront us, they
must lie grappled with wholc-*beartc*a*
ly and unanimously, and the people
of Koolenay ean make their wants
known and secure redress if they will
hut act as one man on this occasion,
al tins moment we iln not consider
il. advisable lo review thu whole lumber situation in the interior. Certain
iacts aie well known to every news-
pnpei i'.uiti ami it is with just Uioset
facts that an attempt should 1)0

own best interests.
Ono of     the besi Known

Kooh nay, in iht,* course of fl
sion with Die lleiahl relative

suggestion, which wo very bcprtUy
concur in: Let there Ite a joint convention of Conservatives and Liberals
ii» sclecl a candidate, thoroughly capable of representing thc lumbermen's
ease, who shall he elected by acclamation, upon the distinct pledge that
until such time as he bus secured satisfactory adjustment of Uie lumbermen's legitimate grievances, tie will
maintain lus Independence, avoiding
attendance at either patty caucus, or
in any way Identifying himself with
either of tin- greal parties. In a word,
let Kootenay notify Ottawa tbat bt

Itrielly, th.* foregoing outlines

to accept and justify. Tlie question of
the continued prosperity and expansion nf our lumber Industry is above
all pet11 patty considerations, lu
the evenl of this course being adopted, the Herald cares not whether tbe
nominee he a Conservative or u Liberal. It will only demand that the
choice -tl the convention fall upon a
man, who can be trusted implicitly
to stanti hy his guns, irrespective oi
any and all overtures that may be
made to him to sidetrack the fgstic, a
man thoroughly conversant with the
needs and jusi claims d thc industry capable id presenting the facts in
vigorous language before parliament
ami equally capable of holding his
own in a committee of ministers
Kast Kootena) can provide more
than one man of the typo specified.
Either Mr. (Mis Staples, ol WyclifK-.
or Mr. I'. Luml, ol Wardner, would
lill Ci,- lull admirably. Every elector
in the Kootenays knows lhal neither
Mr. Staples, nor Mr. Lund, could be
Induced to sacrifice the interests of
the lumber industry for the sake of
some personal advantage. We believe,
if the idea of » |oini convention he
carried out, that it will meet with
tin* wbolc-hcartod endorsement of ihi
