Of London Makes Interesting Experiments Demonstrating Its Usefulness.
The Agent-General in London
has transmitted to the Provincial
Department of Agriculture some
valuable information regarding the
disinfection of glass-houses by the
cyanide process.    Mr. Turner says:
"Having noticed in thc London
papers that the Royal .Botanic So
ciety had been carrying ��on experi
ments for the destruction of scale
and other pests on fruit and other
trees and also on shrubs and flowers, I wrote "the secretary for information on the subject stinking it
might .prove of value to horticulturists and fruit-growers in British
Columbia. A few days ago the
secretary called on me and told me
the -experiments were for the purpose of deciding what is the value
of the cvaniding process, and that
they had found it thoroughly reliable and safe, no pest of the kind
referred to could live under the
fumes���it entirely destroyed scale,
mealy bug, woolly aphis, etc., and
that it reached every partiof the
plant, wbich it is very difficult to
do by spraying, it even went into
cracks in wood work and killed the
wood lice. At the same time it in
no way injured vegetation, but care
was required that tbe fumes, if used
in a building, should net be inhaled
by human beings.   *    *
The following is the. detailed account of the experiments:
In order to thoroughly test the
value of hydrocyanic acid gas as a
means of destroying insect pests
under glass, a series of extensive
experiments were conducted in the
large range of houses (now rebuilding) which contain the society's valuable collection of economic and medicinal plants. This
range is divided into three sections
which were dealt with as three separate houses. No. 1 and No. 3
houses each contain 11 900 cubic
feet of air spaoe. No. 2, 14,150
oabic feet.
Houses Nos. 1 and 3: 11,900
cubic feet of air space. Materials
used ��� sodium cyanide, 130 per
cent., 22# oz.; sulphuric acid,
specific gravity, 1.8, 42 fluid or.;
water, 126 fluid ox.
House No. 2: 14,250 cubic feet
air space. Materials used���sodium
cyaraide, 130 per cent., 26 oz..; sulphuric acid, specific gravity 1.8, 51
fluid oz.; water 153fluid oz.; time
exposure, 50 minutes.
Three cyaniding pans were used
in each house, making a total of 9
in tins range, which is 150 feet ia
length. The pans were first arranged into positions suitable for
an even distribution of gas. Pieces
of board were then hung over each
pan, about 4 feet long and 11 inches

The funeral of the late Mrs. J. J.
Monkman took place,-on Tuesday,
from the Methodist Church, to the
Boundary Bay Cemetery.
The service commenced about 10
o'clock aud was conducted by tha
pastor, Rev. A. N. Miller, who
opened the service with the singing
of that beautiful hymn, Nc. 85a,
' 'Asleep in } ecus. *' Then followed
a very feeling prayer, and Hymn
No. 615, "For Ever With the
Lord," after which came a Scripture reading, followed by Hymn
No. 851, '.'Unveil Thy Bosom
Faithful Tomb."
After the last hymn had been
sung and the benediction pronounced, an invitation was extended to .anyone present to take a last
look at the features of our dear departed sister, which was accepted
by most of those present.
Quite a large number of the
friends of the deceased and of the
bereaved family, for whom great
sympathy is expressed on all sides,
were present to witness and assist
in the last sad rites.

"Nature o'f Man*,"' (Ptttman) is per-

Weevils in particular, are' furnished
witn a very hard covering which c.an-

In contrast to some northern nations, it
ll hardly too much to say that the Moor,
���f whatever class, is born a gentleman.
Tliere is suoh a graco about the humblest,
1 tuoh an  easy dignity, that wbenevor circumstances pliioo them in positions calling

practically nonexistent. This is not, however, to   imply   that   gaucherio and the
J pleasant manners whicli come from evil
Ldispcsttions or stupidity are  unknown.
[Unfortunately the life led by tho average
' Moor is one that dwarfs refinement of in-
Ltellect, as it docs development of mind,
fand the vices to which the majority suo-
leunib in early life too often stultify the
pmost prominent commencement.
It ls a pretty sight to see two olderly,
I dignified Moors salute.    With  measured
I pace, the eyes of each fixed on thoso of the
r other, they apjvoach with a slight inclination, holding tho right hands slightly iid-
/vanoed.    They press their finger tips to-
' gother and  begin a volley of prescribed
f salutations, greetings and inquiries, hard*
; Ij pausing to insert replies and ejaculate
"God bo praised I"  Then each presses the
finger tips which have boon honored by
contact with thoso of hia friends against
his lips and then upon his heart us he

To the unbcliovor tlie nearest approach to
(his permitted is "Ala salam' toJc" ("On.

The way to speed the purling guest is to
exclaim, "God givo thee pence,'' or, moro
durtly, "In peaco." To those whose presence has never been desired it Is usual to
exclaim in tones sufficiently explicit,
"Allah lhaun-aki" ("God protect theel")
On arrival it is customary to oxclai.m to
1 the guest, "Welcome to theel" or "Mar*
habbnn, ahlan wa sahlan" ("lie wulcom.e
at homo, und at ease").   Courteous tutor*
rogatories fall thiok and fast.   "Hew art

"Thy relatives?   What news,?    Is nothing

nothing specially  to complain of:  "All
right, thank God.   All are in prosperity '
Or. If  bad news hus to be given, "Qui
knows   Everything is in the ha ml ol God.'
When u Moslem meets a European tin-
oompaulcd by a Mcor, though tlio luttor
be tho servant, ho uot infrequently ignores
the presence of tho foreigner and offers the
salutation to his coreligionist only, lint il
be passes n mixed company of Moors and
Jowsf, or Christians, he exclaims, " Peace
be 011 tho people of Islam." If two such
; parties incut on tho road, the phrase is,
'Pence be to thoso accompanying the
Jews," or "the Nazarenos," and it is sufficient for one of each party to give uud
return tho grouting,'though in tha couu-
try lovoral often do so. Inferiors saluting
superiors usualjy kiss the hand, shoulder,
top of the turban, or tout, or the kn-co or
stirrup of a horseman, according to the
terms ou which thoy approach. Tho more
abject forms aro naturally only used to
Implore a favor, though they aro employed
sometimes to Europeans. In the extremity
of supplication tho very feet of one's horse
are embraced.
The old custom of falling on one another's necks is stili in voguu between friends
long separated. Mun and women restrict
their greetings ln publio to words, but
personally I was somewhat startled by tho
suddeu embrace of n nogross vybose freedom iny father hud bean the means of obtaining when returning to the country
after soma years' ubsorToe. Tho kisses on
such occasions are, however, fortunately
delivered iu tho air or ou tho shoulder, it
is customary to exclaim ut such muotiugs.
"I have been desolated for thoo."
To judge from tliuexclamations ever on
tbe tongues of tho Moors, they might be
an extremely pious people, and no doubt
thcru aro among them thosu who really
mean what they say, but generally the
most religious phrases have degenerated
into Vain repetition, l.luboruto curses lull
almost, as freely.
When about to repeat somo port of tho
Koran or a prayer, tho petition lsootn-
uiunly uttered, "I tako rulllgu with 'mk!
from iiv.un, the stoned," ami when anything great or alarming occurs they exclaim, "There t_ neither ehangonor power,
suve in God, tlio Ll l;��h, the Mighty I" Quo*
tatlous from tlio Koran aro also freely introduced In conversation by thu learned,
as aro provorb. ond sayings by tho gc:-.;r-
ojity of Moors, u knowledge of wliich is a
greut help In ooiivermtlon.
Several llttlo social usages of Moorish
tlfo deserve attention, though riot confined
to Morocco, Kiif.li us the exclamation to
one who Snoozds, "Tho forgiveness of God
beon mo mid on theel" to whloh the reply
ts, ".Justice and praise to God I" If a
man who yawns in public disss not, u=;o the
prescribed formula, any one speaking lo
him may place the back of his hand to his
mouth, uttering a pious sentence, as the
devil is accredited with performing nn unpleasant operation in yawning mouths
On tho other hand, any onowearing a now
garment or looking specially spruce or
having performed some clover or meritorious act receives tho compliment. "Hi
suhhVuk" ("In thy strength").
A Moor knows how to enjoy a good joke
to tho full, and, seated on thu floor, he
bonds bnokwurd and forward without restraint in his laughter. Often the toller
of tho story will join ln tho process to.i.
Raising their right hands far above their
bends na they roll book, they bring them
together iu a hoarty shake. There never

pneumonia, one of the most   dangerous diseases that medical men have to
contend with, can be prevented hy the
use of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy
Pneumonia always results from a cold
or from an attack of influenza (grip),
and it has ben observed that this rem
edy counteracts any tendency of these
diseases toward pneumonia.   This has
been fully proven in many thousand,
of cases in which the remedy has beer
used during the great prevalence    o
colds and grip in recent    years, an:'
can be relied upon with implicit con
lidence.     Pneumonia    often    result
from a slight cold when no danger i
apprehended until it is suddenly dis
covered that there is fever and aim
ctilty in breathing and   pains in   tlh
chest, then it is announced  that tht
patient has pneumonia.     He    on    tin

broad, to act as "punkahs" for distributing the gas generated instead
of allowing it to rise rapidly to the
roof, where, owing to its light nature, it would collect in lar_;e quantities, possibly to damage tender
vegetation and leave insufficient at
the lower parts ot the house to destroy the insects. The whole of
these nine "punkahs" were connected together with cords and
work'*'! fro"*, the e:*ferior of the
house for about 10 minutes. The
water vas next placed iu tbe general: '., pau and diluted with the
sulphuric acid; vessels for the sodium cyanide were arranged above
and dose beside the generator with
line cords attached, wheieby the
cyanide could be tipped into the
dilute acid from exterior of house
'without the slightest danger to the
operator. The ventilators had been
previously arranged to open from
the outside. With all in readiness
the sodium cyanide was tipped into
the dilute acid from exterior of
each house, the "punkahs" set in
motion and gas was rapidly generated. Fifty minutes was allowed
from the close of above operation
for the cyanide to complete its
work. At the end of this time tbe
ventilators were opened and gas allowed to escape. During the operation no person must enter the
hous����, as the gas generated is ot a
highly poisonous nature; and 110
cyanide must come into contact
with the dilute sulphuiic acid while
operator is within the house, The
operation of cyanidihg is much
easier in practice than theory and
if carried out in a careful manner
there is absolutely no risk. All
plants in the houses < -yanided were
quite dry and sustained not the
slightest damage. The time selected was 4 o'clock p.m., and
houses opened 4:50.
A similar plant house in the
propagating department was then
experimented with, which contained a large selection of plants infected with various insects, and of a
more tender nature than the preceding ones, including begonias in
bloom, salvias, pelargonium, asparagus, eucalyptus, ageratum, etc.
Some of these were placed in one
corner of the house under the stage.
House No. 4: 4.277 cubic feet
air space. Material used���sodium
cyanide, 130 per cent., 8 07..; su1-
phuric acid, specific gravity 1.8, 15
fluid oz.; water, 45 fluid cz.
Two generators and "punkaks"
were used. Time exposure, 40
minutes. At the end of this period
gas was allowed to escape and was
clear enough to enter the house
.two hours after opening. I selected
several specimens for examination
under the microscope ot mealy bug,
red spider, thrips, etc,, and found
tbem in a perfectly lifelike attitude
but quite dead,
The process i-; known as the
"Strawson sodium cyanide process"
aud the experiments were conducted by 0. 17 StraWson, tbeitiventor;
,V7 J. Einptage, ofthe Fruit Grower, and the wriler.
Ou further examination the next
morning the result on mealy bug
was marvelous. Not a living
specimen could be found in a range
of 150 feet long by 18 leet wide and
not a single plant damaged. Oi her
results were also as satisfactory,
which tends to prove the great value of the new process wheu used
with proper care.
The substitution of sodium cyanide for patassium cyanide is entirely
new, tbe former substance being
largely in use in California where it
is employed for the San Jose scale.
The idea of producing an even
distribution by "punkahs'1 is also
new, and together with a proper
standardization as above described
puts the entire process on the
soundest basis and is a thoroughly
English method.
