Growing Tomatoes.
The following timely hints on the
culture of the tomato are given by
J. K. Lambert of Coatsburg, III., in
the current issue ofthe Fruit-Grow*
For the home garden the seed
should be sown in a flat box filled
with soil, made by taking 3 parts
garden loam, 2 parts well-rotted
manure and 1 part sand. Sow the
seeds a half inch apart in drills two
inches apart, or broadcast. Start
about the last week in   February in

i bed lightly with sand or rotted
manure after lowing to avoid crushing. Wet thoroughly and place in a
warm sunny window. When the

shoot starts from a fruit shoot axil,
and it is especially important that
these be removed. This pruning
should be done every few days, for
if it is not it is a detriment rather
than an advantage.
If the plants are not to be staked
and pruned they should be set five
by five feet and as they grow are to
be brought up through a hoop fastened to stakes or have brush under
them to allow free access of light
and air. If the vines are making a
long, spindling growth from too
much nitrogen in the soil it is advisable to cut the ends back.

If any man in Canada can effect a
mutually satisfactory arrangement
between the Indians and white men
that man is John McDougall. He
is revered by the Indians from Winnipeg to the coast and respected
by his own countrymen throughout
the entire Dominion and even beyond. That Indian affairs in this
province require prompt and careful consideration is apparent to all.
Present conditions seriously inter*
! fere with the development of the
country and are far from satisfactory
to the Indians themselves.

Under the auspices of the Ladies'
Aid, whose funds were increased
$20.35 by the receipts, Rev. Conn
delivered an able address in the
church on Monday evening. He
took as his subject "Slum and Prison Life in the Large Cities" and
spoke entirely from his own experiences with the criminal classes while
engaged in mission work in Glasgow. To those who have never
had an opportunity of witnessing
anything of the kind much that he
related appeared too horrible to be
real. Rev. Mr. Cameron acted as
chairman. The program was as
follows :

In reporting the board of trade
meeting last week we omitted lo
mention that W. II. Armstrong of
Vancouver was elected honorary
president ot the organization and Ci.
B. Murphy of Carberry anil J. C.
Woodrow of Vancouver vice-presidents. It was felt that the names
of these gentlemen would not onlv
add lustre to the board but that
their identification with it would
greatly add to its weight and influence.
In our last issue we announced
Longboat as the winner of the 15-
mile race arranged between him
and Alfred Shrubb, the Knglish
runner. We were mis-led by a report in the Nelson News. The race
which was to have been run at New
Vork on the I .ith was postponed
until yesterday, 25th inst., at Buffalo. Last evening our long distance wires were not working and
we have not yet learned how the
race resulted.

lower Okanagan, like here, there
was none, but from Vernon on they
found it in increasing quantities.

Work on the new town hall at
the Centre is now well under way
and it is expected thai the building
will be completed in time to wind
up the season with a grand masquerade ball. The hall is to be

feet at the east end. The site is
opposite and quite convenient to

its advantages.

A jolly time was spent in the
town hall on Friday evening when
Or. McKvven entertained his friends
at dancing. As the doctor's friends
include everybody iu Keremeos and
surrounding district there was a

being present who do not usually
attend such functions. 'The occasion was the doctor's birthday and
vve are pleased to learn that he has
one every year.
O. H. Carle is preparing to enter
upon gardening on quite a scale
this year and will aim at having his
produce M the market early. Already he has his plants nicely started in a hot house erected for the
purpose. With the prospects of a
good market in the upper valley
this year there should be money in

Changes in Mining Act.
Victoria, Feb. 20 For the first
time since ils accession to power,
the government   has   introduced   a |
bill for the amendment of the Min-
eral act.     There was   a time   when !
this act was  altered   every   season,
until no one knew just how the law
did   stand.     The   present   administration, however,   has   set   its   face
against tinkering with   the   mineral |
act, and has given the legislation a
good   trial.      One   or   two   defects
have been revealed,   and   these   are
now being remedied in   time   to   be
included in the new revised statutes.
Section 8 ol the   act   is   amended
by making clearer   the   penalty   for)
mining  without   a   miner's   license. I
Formerly it vvas merely   an   ollence
to mine without having taken out a )
license.      This   did   not   cover   the
Case of fl man who had   once   taken'
out the yearly license and neglected
to take out one afterwards. This
oversight is now remedied.
Another change is a simplication
ot the proof required to vest in a
man the share of a partner who has
allowed his free miner's license
to lapse. In future all that vvill be I
needed vvill be the tiling with the
department of mines a certificate to
that effect from tiie mining recorder.
Section 30, regarding the obtaining ot a certificate of improvements
prior lo the issuance of a crown
grant is repealed and practically re-
enacted, the new legislation differing in only one particular. Prior
lo obtaining a crown grant a certificate of improvements has to be
obtained from the gold commissioner, and prior to thai again a   ceilifi-
Duncan Ross is out with another
challenge to Hon. W. J. Bowser to
meet him on a public platform and
discuss the Gotoh charges. While
it is quite proper that Mr. Ross
should endeavor to keep himself
prominently before the public, the
attorney-general cannot be expected to leave his sessional duties for
the purpose of advertising every
defeated candidate in the province
Mr. Ross was at the coast dining
the last federal campaign, and
spoke in New Westminster and
Victoria. If he was sincere he
should have also spoken in Van*
COUVer. Then he was tqe representative of a great party seeking
election, now he can only be considered a past and almost forgotten
incident in the politics of the interior. If Mr. Sheppard, the defeated
Conservative candidate in Nanaimo,
were to go to Ottawa and challenge
Sir Wilfred Laurier to meet him in
public debate, he would probably
land in the insane asylum. Mr.
RiMM would do well to class himself as one of the political incidents
that have "happened," along with

conler.    The life of the certificate of
improvements,   during   which  noi
more vv ork need be done, has al-1
w ays been and will continue to be,
three months. Hut under the old !
legislation there was no period set
to the certificate of work. The re-
suit was that in some cases the
miner would get his certificate of
work and proceed no further, but
hold his claim indefinitely, without
further work under this certilicate.
In future the life of the certificate ot
work vvill he but three months. The
provision is not lo come into force
till April  I, P. 10.
In order to remove a conflict
with section 99 the application for
a CFOWn granl will be made to the
chief commissioner of lands through

another two months before they can
indulge in this pleasing pastime.
A telegram received yesterday
from Ven. Archdeacon Heer states
that owing to a death in the family
be will not be able to be in Keremeos on Sunday, consequently the
services announced have been cancelled. There vvill be no service in
the church here, Mr. Cameron having arranged to go to Fairview.
Rev. J. Thurburn-Conn has been
striking   it  rich in  marriage  fees
lately. Whether it was owing to
the excellent example he recently
set his parishioners or to the extremely cold snap we do not know
but during the winter he has been
repeatedly called upon to tie the
nuptial knot. Fven on his recent
trip to attend the Presbytery bis
good fortune accompanied him.
Arriving in Keremeoa on  Saturday
on his return, ahead of Mr. Cameron, he found a couple at the Central hotel impatiently awaiting the
offices of a clergyman. Needless
to say he soon performed the brief
ceremony that ended their misery.
Mr. ti. II. Knowling, formerly of
Vancouver, who has been spending
the last few months in Wenatchee,
arrived in Keremeos ou Tuesday
ami will occupy a riiom in the Keremeos Land Company's building.
His health has not been the best
recently and he is seeking a more
favorable climate. He expresses
himself aa greatly pleased  with the
Wenatchee vallev and would have
made his resilience there only that
he could iisit reconcile himself to
the Stats and Stripes after living so
lonj,r under the I'uioti Jack. If he
linds the climate of the Similkameen to his liking (and he will) he
intends locating here permanently.

\ very large OOUgar, says the
Princeton Star, was found dead on

on its prey when death in a mysterious manner overtook it. Mr. Lawrence, who discovered lhe animal,
describes its position as indicating
a supreme effort,  its   lore   lege   be-
Iny outstretched lull  length,  while
its hind le^'s were bent for a spring.
The body evidently became suddenly rigid for there il stood in the altitude   described.       It   would   have
made a famous snap-shot but
the   beautifully mild   weather   at
