the prices paid for the other winners

them to appoint a secretary and,
under the new law, that official may
be remunerated. Now, we see uo
valid objection to the Municipal
Clerk, N. A. McDiarmid, being offered the position of secretary as
there is much in common between
the two positions which, being occupied by tbe one person, might
be more satisfactorily attended to.
The farmers of tbe Northwest
lodged a complaint, last year,
against the quality of the Milestone
supplied to them. Samples having
been analyzed by Thomas Mac-
Farlane, the chief analyst at Ottawa, with the following result:
'���"The opinion which seems now to
exist in the Northwest, to tbe effect that the prevalence of smut in
the crop of last year was owing to
the inferior quality o( the blue-
atone sold to the farmers, does' not

Speaking of the Fruitgrowers'
Convention wbich was held at Ot
tawa, Mr. Smith said that the chief
feature of the gathering was the unanimity ot ieeling on the part of
all the delegates and representatives
to raise the standard of the
fruit industry to the highest point
possible. Hon. Sydney Fisher, Minister of Agriculture showed his interest in the Conference by presiding
at every one of three days' sessions,
as he wished to hear all the discussions on the various questions' taken
up. Mr. Smith thought that the
duties of Dominion fruit inspectors
would be considerably lessened by
the actions of the Conteren.e in defining two new grades of all fruits.
These were fancy���to consist of absolutely perfect specimens���and No.
2, a grade below No. 1. The Conference also recommended that a uniform style of shipping box and barrel
be adopted all over Canada. Hearty-
endorsement was also given to the
Government's proposal to establish
experimental truit stations in various parts of the Dominion, where
peculiar conditions as effecting
fruits are found to exist.���Province.
