S. A. Cawley, who represented Chilliwack on the reception
committee last Saturday night
at Vancouver, returned home on
Monday and reports that the
welcome given to the Premier
on his arrival in that city was ef
the most enthusiastic character.
For the moment party differences seemed to be forgotten
and everybody joined heartily in
testifying to their appreciation
of the efforts which Premier
McBride has made in the maintenance of the rights of the
Province. Dense crowds of
people thronged the streets
along which the procession
passed and fell into the line of

from the citizens of his native

the demonstration was necessarily brief but none the less
hearty. A procession was
formed and marched up Columbia Avenue for several blocks,
where it halted and addresses of
welcome were made by T. J.

Important Meeting Held at Kaslo.
Chilliwack Represented by
Henry Kipp.
We are indebted to the Koo-
tenaian for the following report
of the recent meeting of the B.
C. Fruit Growers' Association:
A meeting of the B.C. Fruit
Growers' Association was held
in the City Hall on Tuesday
afternoon. President James
Johnstone occupied the chair
with Secretary Brandrith of.
Ladner and Mr. Kipp of Chilliwack present,
The secretary read the minutes of the last meeting, held in
Summerland and the correspondence.
Mr. Kipp moved a resolution
endorsing the action of the
Board of Horticulture in refusing to allow infected fruit to enter the province. This was seconded by J. W. Cockle and carried unanimously. Another resolution was passed dealing with
the Fruit Marks Act. There
was some discussion in regard to
this, centering chiefly around the
matter of berry boxes.
Mr. Cockle brought up the
matter of affiliation of local horticultural societies with the provincial body, but Mr. Brandrith
stated that this had been tried
before but unsuccessfully.
President Johnstone, at the
request of the secretary, went
into details regarding the B.C.
Fruit and Produce Exchange,
recently formed. The object of
this Exchange ft its to distribute
the fruit of its members in such
a way that they could obtain the
best market prices. The central office had been located in
Revelstoke because it was the
most central point. A salaried
manager was stationed there and
he kept in touch with every retail fruit dealer in the Northwest. When a member had a
shipment about ready, a note
was sent the manager stating
the amount. The manager
looked up his books and wired
the name of the point to which
it should be sent. Tab was
kept on the different dealers'
ratings and in a number of
other ways advantages not
otherwise obtainable, could be
had by members of the Exchange. Membersnip was held
by shares, one share being allotted to twenty people or fraction
thereof at S100 per share.
After Mr. Kipp and Mr.
Brandrith had further enlarged
upon the advantages to be obtained from the Exchange, it
was decided to adjourn and hold
a meeting at night to form a
local branch.
At the evening meeting the
attendance was much better.
Wm. Robb was made chairman.
Mr. Brandrith briefly outlined
the history and objects of the
B.C. Fruitgrowers' Association
and showed what it had done
for the industry in the way of
cheapening supplies and materials. It was also shown that
thr Association had done much
in the way of securing better
express and freight rates for.
At the conclusion of Mr.
Brandrith's remarks a general
discussion as to membership,
affiliation, etc., was indulged inl
After light had been "thrown on
the subject by this means, a
number of local growers had
themselves enrolled as members.
The balance of the evening
was taken up by Mr. Kipp who
demonstrated the best methods
of planting and pruning trees..

The "MELOTTE" is the most efficient cream separator
yet produced.
Owing to the remarkably small power taken to turn the
large size machines, it especially commends itself to the
large dairy  farmers of the Fraser Valley  who  require
machines of large capacity.
The MELOTTE has been in scores of "Working Contests"
ine very part of the world (except in the United States,
where the MELOTTE is neither sold or marketed) and it
has beaten its competitors over and over again.
Under suitable conditions, alfalfa Is
very long lived, fields In Mexico, it Is
claimed, having been continuously
productive without reseedlng for over two hundred years, and others In
France are known to have flourished
for more thun a century. Its usual
life In the United States Is probably
from ten to twenty-five years, says
Coburn, In "The Book of Alfalfa," although there is a field In New York
t.tate that has been mown successfully for over Blxty years. In Canada
there are fields on clay hillsides which
have yielded splendid crops year after
year for at least twenty years, and
look good for many more. In its
root growth, it Is probably the greatest wonder amonk plants. Roots go
down ten, twenty or more feet, and
a case In Nevada is reported by Chas.
W. Irish, Chief of Irrigation Inquiry, U. 8. department of Agriculture, where the roots were found penetrating crevices in the roof of a tunnel one hundred and twenty-nine feet
below the surface of an alfalfa field.
At first thought one would feel sure
Mr. Irish must have been deceived,
but his statement is endorsed by high
authority. Prof. W. P. Headen, of
Colorado, found roots nine feet long
from alfalfa only nine months old,
and another man reports roots seventeen inches long at about four weeks'
growth, the plants being but six
inches high. In Canada cases have
come to our notice of roots found
down In cellar excavations, in the
hardest kind of clay, and the root of
the plant measured three feet six
and one half Inches, while from its
crown forty young shoots were starting up. No doubt much longer roots
could have been found. In fact, tho
wonderful authenticated instances of
(he root-growth of alfalfa lend color
to the belief that It will go down until stopped by Impervious rock or by
the   watertable.
The alfalfa plant generally has a
tapering taproot, with many branches
tending downward, yet with considerable lateral growth. As the taproot
is piercing the earth, It is also sending out new fibrous roots, while the
upper ones, decaying, are leaving humus and providing Innumerable
openings tor air, water and the fertilizing elements from the upper soil.
Scattered along the' roots may be
seen, as a usual thing, small nodules
or tubercles the size of a plnhead
up to that of a pea. Here dwell the
bacteria which collect nitrogen from
tho air tn the soil, and, after using,
pass it along to the plant, to be built
up In its tissues. Where nodules are
not present, the Held requires nrtlll-
clal inoculation with them, to secure
best growth; where nodules are pre
sent In large numbers, It is sure evidence that inoculation has already
bec-n accomplished in some natural
or artificial way.
By its roots, therefore, alfalfa,
like clover, Is a means of greatly Increasing the nitrogen content of the
farm, while the mechanical effect of
its root growth and decay constitutes
another of the great virtues of the
plant. On well drained land, with
plenty of lime and potash, and a
reasonable amount of phosphoric
acid, it is the most efficient, deep-
reaching subsoller and soil renovator
known to agriculture, clover not <
cepted. It will do best on clay hillsides, other conditions being equal,
for here It is likely to be winter-killed   or   crowded   out   by  grass Far

Why Is the printer's errand boy
called the "printer's devil"? A
writer at the end of the seventeenth
century explained it thus: "These
boys in a printing house commonly
black and daub themselves; whence
the workmen do Jocosely call them
devils, and sometimes spirits, and
sometimes flies." It Is related, however, that Aldo Manuslo, the great
Venetian printer of the fifteenth century, had a blaek slave boy, who
waa popularly supposed to have come
from below. Accordingly he published notice: "I, Aldo Manuslo, printer
ot the Doge, have this day made
public exposure of the printer's devil.   All who think he is not flesh* and
The youger son of a well known
politician of Chicago has spent pretty
much all his life In the big city by the
lake, and consequently knows little
of country ways and things.
Not long ago, he visited a man he
had met in Chicago, and who maintains a big farm near Cairo, whither
he had insisted the youngster come
for a lengthy stay.
One day the Chicago youth was
wandering about the farm, closely
examining the top, ends and sides of
a certain trim, well-made object
fenced round in the paddock.
"What are you seeching for, Jimmy?" asked the owner of the place,
with a quizzical smile.
"Where are the doors and windows?" asked Jimmy.
"Doors and windows! why, Jimmy,
that's a hay stack.
"Look here, old man," exclaimed
Jimmy; "I may be only a green person from the city, but you can't
bluff me that way. Hay don't grow

The past week has witnessed
marked demonstrations of welcome to Premier McBride on the
part of the citizens of New
Westminster, Vancouver and
Victoria successively, upon the
occasion of his return from London. At the same time these
demonstrations have found an
echo in the utterances of the
press of the province, largely
irrespective of party. In view
of the signal service which the
Premier has rendered to British
Columbia in securing the elimination of the objectionable
words "final and unalterable'
from the amendment to the
British North America Act, it is
both natural and fitting that the
people should thus testify their
appreciation of his success. It
is highly gratifying to -his host
of friends and admirers, as it
must also be to the first minister
of the province himself that he
has been able once more to make
There is no doubt that added
zest was imparted to the words
and acts of welcome which have
been so freely forthcoming, by
the fact of the recent announcement of Finance Minister Tatlow that the  government's sur-

It will be a Matter of interes
to those who are troubled with

J. W. Hymson of San Francisco,
is making a few weeks visit in

Harrison House. Dr. Hymson
is a graduate of the Chicago Op-
thalmic College and is registered
under a certificate of the California State Board of Examiners
in Optometry to practice his pro

from the improper lighting of\'fa
our school rooms. Too much
care cannot be exercised by
those who are responsible for the
education of our children in
seeing to it that their studies
both at home and at school are
prosecuted under conditions
which will not unduly tax the
eye. But this is not the only
source of trouble. Simultaneously with this, and even more
potent for evil, is the tendency
to overcrowd the growing child
with work in the present day
public school. The exacting demands of our over-loaded cur-
riculua overtax tho nervous energies of the pupils resulting in
manifold disorders of the nervous system and often ending in
, total prostration. As one of the
most delicate organisms of the
entire system the eye is frequently among the first affected,
although the real cause of the
trouble is rarely suspected. Thus
it happens that the child is continued under the undue pressure
until permanent injury is done,
and the services of an eye specialist are required to repair the.
injury, which might have been
obviated kid the cause been
suspected in time. There is undoubtedly much sound sense in
this view of the case, and a word
of caution to all who are interested in the welfare of our children is timely.

Letter from Jean Templar.
Editor, The Fraser Advance,
Dear Sir: For some time we had
eagerly watched for the first view of
Vesuvius. As our train was nearing
Naples, It swung around a curve and
the famous volcanic mount hove In
sight. I could scarcely convince myself that It was tho Vesuvius of three
years ago. The recent eruption had
changed the symmetrical cone, leaving a Jagged uneven top.
It la said that no other town has
such beautiful surroundings as
Naples, but I think there are many
such charming spots on our Pacific
coast. The aquarium contains many
beautiful aquatic specimens, many
oddities and some horribly repulsive
looking creatures. The museum with
its wealth of ancient statuary from
the ruins of Herculaneum and Pompeii, Is well worth a visit. Of course
you must not leave the city without
a dish of macaroni���we can vouch
for its excellence.
Two hours ride from Naples are
the marvellous ruins of Pompeii.
Here we caught many a vision from
the vanished past. With Bulwer Lyt-
ton, we pictured again that awful
tragedy, when so many of the city's
inhabitants met their doom while the
city itself was lost to the world for
so many centuries.
We spent a few hours In Rome
again on our way to Florence. The
whole city is a museum and every
street an art gallery, has been said of
the latter city. Everywhere there was
an atmosphere of art and beauty
and we walked or drove about the
streets like one in a dream. Here we
saw the home of Dante, there the
birth-place of Michael Angelo and
again the house where Amerigo
Vespucia lived. To mention her monuments dnd her palaces, or to enumerate her statues and pictures would
take too much time and space. The
cathedral and bell tower are Imposing:
structures. The two stand together
and Just In front, the Baptistry with
its remarkable bronze doors. The
finest mosaic work in the world is
made In Florence. The king of Slam
had been in the city the previous day
and we saw several articles in mosaic
and sculptured alabaster that he had
purchased. And what shall I say of
the Florentine Gallery, the Medici?
The noblest in the world, Is the popular verdict. I am no artist to compare relative values, but I stood entranced before the masterpieces of
Da Vinci, Raphael, Michael Angelo
and others.
An interesting Incident occurred
one evening while my brother and I
were suntering back to the hotel' after a stroll round one of the lovely
parks. We had noticed a young lad
beating a tiny donkey that was doing
its best to drag a huge load up the
hill. Hurrying forward to remonstrate, we were In time to see a richly
dressed lady make a note of the
cart number al lthe while indignantly
chiding the driver. She was evidently
not master of the Italian as she freely
interspersed some choice English
phrases. "It's good to hear English
spoken in Florence," I remarked as
we came up. She turned to us with
a bright smile. In the course of a
little conversation It came out that
iho lady was from Ohio and was at
Ihu time on a prolonged visit to her
daughter, who was married to an Italian professor and who was particularly interested in the society for
the prevention of cruelty to animals.
"I shall give the number to my
daughter and this case shall be Investigated," she said as she gave us each
her hand and sweetly bade us goodbye.
Crossing the Apennines, we were
on the rich and fertile plains of Lom-
bardy. From our coach window we
saw the leaning towers of Bologna.
An English professor and his wife
proved interesting company and gave
us much helpful Information.
"Padua," called the guard, and we
heard again Shakespeare's 'Duke
of Venice' asked 'Portia' and 'Nerissa'
"Come you from Padua?" "Llvy was
born here 59 B. C," said the professor
as our train drew up at the station.
"Did you know that the original of
Shylock was a Christian and not a
Jew?" he continued questlonlngly. We
admitted that we were in ignorance
regarding the matter. "But why
should Shakespeare so traduce the
Jew?" I asked. The play would not
otherwise have been permitted on the
stage at that time," replied our
learned companion.
Will some of' my readers tell us
the truth of the matter?
The shadows of evening were falling when we stepped into a gondola.
In a few moments we were quietly
gilding down the main street of Venice.   I shall tell you ef our visit to
this wonderful city In my next.

As Reported by Winnipeg Knights of
The Quill-No 'Breakfast to
Perdition' Talk.
WINNIPEG, July 11.���Premier
McBride passed through here today
en route home, and during a brief
interval in the city met Hon. Robert
Rogers and several prominent cltl ���
sens. He also discussed public questions freely with newspapermen.
He disclaimed vigorously the use
of expressions which have been attributed to him by eastern papers.
The disclaimer referred only to the
terms employed, however, and not to
any of the sentiments expressed. The
particular expression to which exception was taken was that which
represented the premier as saying
that he would continue his contention with the Dominion Administration from "breakfast to perdition."
Federal Arena Talk.
"I have been constantly asked regarding my entrance into the politics
of the Dominion," he said in reply.
"I have said that the question of my
entrance into Dominion politics has
never been raised. It is a possibility
that has not been considered. With
reference to the future, I would say
that Its contingencies will require to
be dealt with as they arise. I will
also state this, however, that leaders
in Dominion politics have been active
in the affairs of the Province of British Columbia, and It is only natural
to expect in return that we might
take an active part In the politics
of  the  Dominion."
Reference was made by a reporter to the reception which the Premier would receive on his arrival
In Victoria.

"In reference to the Province as a
whole, I would say that It was neve.-
more prosperous; it shares In the advancement and prosperity common to
all Canada. We will naturally have
very large responsibilities laid upon
us in connection with the development of the Northern portion of the
Province, which Is to be opened up
through the building of the Grand
Trunk Pacific. We will be called on
to open new roads, build new schools,
administer Justice and carry forward
the various needs of the government
in an Immense new district."

"With referronce to our request, I
may say that In the past we have
paid into the Dominion government
twenty million dollars more than we
have received. In addition to this
we have given up lands In order to
secure railway transportation, which
constitute an empire in themselves.
I am fully, satisfied with the result
of the negotiations which have occupied my attention in England, and
although the Imperial government
refuses to interfere In our domestic
matters, I have hope that a satisfactory settlement will be reached
with the Dominion government. The
government was very generous to the
province at the time of the Confederation, but the condition has. completely altered since that time.

wish to call attention to the fact
that In connection with the discussion of our claim, there has been no
talk of secession. Other provinces
in similar circumstances have talked
of  secession.
"We might have done the same
but we have not done so. We are

that It should be dealt with as a Canadian question."

A United States paper pays this
tribute to the banking system of Canada: "The banking system of Canada
! Is one of the most perfect ever de
I vised. Originally formed on Scotch
I and English plans, it has developed
into a system which is essentially
! new and is peculiarly adapted to that
country's needs. During the last
twenty-five years Canadian deposit-
| ors have lost only $750,000. and note
holders nothing, through the failure
of banks which would have been eligible to organization under the present banking laws. The pending liquidation of the Ontario Bank furnishes strong evidence of the efficiency of the system. The liabilities
of that bank on the day of liquidation amounted to $15,000,000, but Its
affairs are being administered without the disorganization of business
or the loss of a dollar either to note
holders or depositors. Contrast with
these statements the amounts lost to
depositors and note holders through
bank failures, and the methods of
procedure In cases of liquidation of
banks under the laws of the United
States. Receiverships and assessments here, after dragging along for
many months, often years, are rarely closed up without much loss to depositors and creditors, the receivers,
in some instances, absolutely eating
up the assets In salaries and other expenses."
There Is as much difference in boys
as will be found In mon, some being
quick to observe the Importance of
common things, and others paying no
attention whatever to anything they
meet from day to day. Alfred Brown
Is the name of a boy living In Brooklyn. He is interested In natural science, but cares very little for stories
and poetry. He Is what may be
termed an original, practical boy, and
is constantly on the lookout for
"points", as he terms It. While he Is
an ardent student of electricity, having Invented many machines and appliances for his own special use, he
devotes much time to studying
watches, clocks, engines, printing-
presses and other useful articles.
He Is not satisfied simply to read
about the wonders to be found In ordinary things, but he is experimenting at odd times to get practical evidence. Not long ago his mother
bought a new kettle for the cook,
and Instantly he went to the kitchen.
"Well, well," said Mary, "now what
be ye wanting,  Master Alfred?"'    -
"I have something to tell you," he
"About what?"
"About that kettle, if you are in a
hurry you'd better use the old one."
"Go along wid yez," sold Mary,
"Well, let us see," said Alfred.
"Fill the old one and the new one
with water, and put them on the
stove at the same time. If the water
In the old one doesn't begin to boll
first, I will give you a box of candy.'
To gratify the boy, Mary followed
Alfred's Instructions; and, to her
amazement and chagrin, the water In
the old kettle began" to boil much
quicker than  that In  the  new  one.
"It bates all," said Mary. "Now,
why is  that?"
"That's very simple," said Alfred.
"It is because the old kettle is covered with soot, which not only keeps
the heat in, but absorbs It quickly
from the fire. It takes a new kettle
of water longer to get hot because
the bottom is clean and bright. Polished metal does not absorb heat,
but reflects or throws it off. I read
about it one night, and proved It the
next day when you were out."���Brooklyn Eagle.
"Did you tell pour master that I
helped you with your French exercise, Sidney?" "Yes, father." "And
what did he say?" "He said he
wouldn't keep me in today, 'cos it
didn't seem fair that I should suffer  for  your  Ignorance."���Tit-Bits.
