At the conference of Dominion
Fruit Inspectors recently held at
the Central Experimental Farm,
Prof. Shutt gave a very clear and
scientific explanation of the value
of cover crops to the orchardist, of
wliich the following is a synopsis.
Among the many advantages to
be derived from the system of orchard culture which includes the
growth of cover crops, we may cite
as the two most important, the
control of the soil mosture, and the
improvement of the soil.
Speaking  generally, it  is  desirable that the  soil  moisture  Should
be conserved for the orchard  trees
during the earlier  months  of the
season     Up to, sav, Julv   ist,   the
tree is making new growth   and  is
transpiring through its leaves lritge
quantities of . water.    Further, the
swelling fruit is making,Its demafirts
for water.     For every pound of dry
matter of leaf or wood  or fruit, the
| tree uses at least 300 lbs. of water.
Hence, in districts wh**re  droughts
may prevail in spring or  the  rain-
fa!! be scanty,   the importance of
surface cultivation is marked.    By
this means an earth mulch  is produced, and thus evaporation checked 01 prevented.    The  cover  crop
system allows of surface cultivation
! in   the spring and early  summer
months. aaaa
Hon. R. Prefontaine
The following is taken from the
Daily Colonist of Wednesday's
Vancouver, Aug. 16.���Hon. Mr.
Prefontaine spoke to the liberal
Association to-night. He said that
before he left British Columbia soil
he would likely have placed the
fisheries of the province in such a
shape that instead of their being an
asset to the Dominion of fifteen
million** they would be increased in
monetary value 100 per cent.
At Steveston, to-day, the fishermen, through their leaders, had announced that they  were  willing to
have a  close  season  from   August
25th to September 15th.    Thiscon-
cession wa.s   what   he   was waiting
for.    He had at once instructed the
department to  increase the present
salmon hatchery from ten to twenty-five  million  eggs, and  had  instructed   lumber  to  be  ordered at
once for the  construction of a new
hatchery  at   Harrison   River  with
.10,000,000 eggs  capacity, and' still

Experiments have been made to
ascertain the effects of cover crops
and cultivation on soii moisture ou
tiie Central Experimental Farm for
several years. Thus, May 6th, 1901
we found that there was 130 tons
more water per acre, to a depth of
14 inches, in cultivated soil than in
the adjoining plot Cs-.rriug a vigorous growth of clover. This means
that the latter soil contained one
half the water iu tha cultivated soil.
But grass sod is more exhaustive
than clover sod In 1903, from
May to July, trials every two weeks
showed that the soil in sod contained from 50 to 100 per cent, less
water than adjoining soil in cultivation���the difference being at times
over 200 tons per acre. The drought
in the early part of 1903 emphasi/.
ed these tacts and showed most
markedly the valua of cultivation.
In the autumn, on the other hand,
it is desirable that the water supply
should be dimished, so that vegetative growth should be checked and
the wood given an  opportunity  to
; ripen   before  the  winter   sets   in.
1 This is readilv  brought about by
sowing .the cover cop  in June or
e o-!v par: of fitly.

The improvement of soils by tlie
growth  of   clover  or  some   other
legume is effected   by  the addition
oi".humus and  nitrogen,   Experiments   go   to   show  that by this;
means the soil  can   be  enriched to i
the exti-ut of iqo  lbs. or   more of
nitrogen per acre, this nitrogen being appr pfi. 'ed from the at uos :

He said the fisheries had been
going behind. All classes in the
industry acknowledged this. He
wished he had been here a year
sooner then they, would not have
gone behind and they would go behind no nisire. All difficulties
would npw be adjusted.
Mr. Prefontaine stated that he
could announce that in a fe.v days
the terminus of the Grand Trunk
Pacific would be decided upon.
That lie would himselfproceed north I

Port Simpson. He. said he could j
announce emphatically that con-
struction would proceed on the]
Grind Trunk Pacific simultaneous

Hon. Raymond Prefontaine, Minister of Marine, was very  busy to- j
day.    He visited the Lake Beauti-j
ful  tunnel  of   thc  B.   C.. Electric!
Railway where their power is generated, and rode into the  mountain
Ppr  a  mile.    He  later  visited the
halibut steamers unloading and expressed himself surprised at the active halibut fisheries developed here, j
A visit was then paid to the Bon,'
Accord hatchery, and   the minister
expressed himself as much interest-!
ed and instructed.    lie received an
address irom Vancouver and Westminster, and from the Liberal party

The London Times prints the
following extract of a letter received by Lord Meath on the subject ol
military training of lads: "I have
just returned from a very short visit
to Natal. I went there to see their
cadets. Like sensible people, they
make all beys attending government schools or all schools helped
hy government funds become cadets.
In fact, it is compulsory, and a
move in the right direction. There
were some 3,000 lads in camp at
Pietermaritzburg for ten days, and
a real fine show they were, keen as
mustard, and smart, competition be
tween schools being ode ot the
stimulants to excel. What a pity
they do not insist on this at home.
It is such a simple and inexpensive
method of giving military training."
The oat crop, this year, will be,
.so far as we can make out from information gathered up to tbe present, scarcely reach fifty per cent, of
last year's figures. We do not
mean by this that the oat crop is a
.very small one. Last season we
-had a banner crop, which, had it
.all been saved, would have been a
surprise to ,tnpst people, This year,
���though the number of sacks is
about one-half that of last year, the
.grain is very plump and, with a
continuance of the present fine weather, the prospects are that ail will
pe saved in good shape.
There .seems to have been a larg-
et quantity of wheat grown, this
jrear than last, and the general report is that "better never was
grown on the pclta."
Taken all round, the Delta's output of hay and grain wijl be a
good average crop.
Cottonseed meal is a by-product
in making cottonseed oil. It is
the richest of all the concentrates,
but varies greatly in quality. It is
not suitable for pigs or calves.
Good cottonseed meal, which is a
bright lemon-yellow in color, and
has a iresh, pleasant taste, may be
profitably fed in reasonable quantity, if combined with other feeds
Not more than three or four pounds

The proboscis of the fly aud the

with numerous delicate hairs set in minute pits. These sre perhaps connected
with the organ of teste; but, though
the exact locality of this sense ln Insects is uncertain, we know that the
groups of cells ln the /tongues of animals called taste bulbs form to part
the ends of the organ of taste. These
vary in number, increasing in the higher animals. Tbey are very close and

, It would be interesting to know
whether each special taste excites a
special group of nerves and that only,
thus corresponding to the .auditory
nerves. These taste bulbs were discovered in 1887. Each one consists ef
two kinds of cells, one set forming an
cuter protective covering, through an

transliterate upsllon ln loan words either direct from Uie Greek er indirect-
ly through Latin or French. In a great
majority of cases the English "y" Is a
semlconsonsnt co-responding ln value
with the continental "J." Along with
the other Roman letters, **y" was
adopted by the Anglo-Saxons from the

claims that theee ls not a lineal descendant of the Anglo-Saxon "j" now

English words is, curiously enough, he
claims, not a "j" at all, -but a lineal descendant of the Anglo-Saxon "g,"
which was the Roman "G" evolved by
the Romans out ef an earlier "C."

The Commercial's Views
of Our JBxfaibit.
The following, taken from The
Commercial, of Winnipeg, speaks
volumes for B. C. truits:
"Tke exhibit of British Columbia fruits at the Dominion exhibition, in charge of R. M. Palmer,
ses-Tetary of the Bureau of Infor-
nation, B.C., attracted,jjreat attention and elicited much. praise. /It
consisted of choice specimens of
both preserved and fresh fruits. The
specimens were remarkably fine.
The array ot preserved fruits included apples, pears, plums, peaches, currants, quinces, crib apples,
logan berries, blackberries and
strawberries. Ot the last thiee
there were many varieties. One
large spray of crab apples was particularly remarked upon.
"But the fresh fruit--was-what
caught the eye of the western fruit
merchant. Despite the long journey, and, it is stated, deficiencies in
the way of proper means of transportation, the ( aily shipments presented a most attractive appearance.
Particular care was given /to the
packing. Tomatoes, especially
Woodwards, eight or nine kinds of
cherries, including lamberts, royals,
olivettes, Windsors, English morei-
los and royal amor varieties,, apples,
raspberries and -red currants combined in making a most Effective
display. An extension of the ventilation car system, already available as far east as Calgary, would,,
it is asserted, make it possible for
British Columbia fruits to find a
ready sale in the Winnipeg market"
