Rain is needed in some sections o[
Alberta within the next week or so
but there is nothing approaching a
drought. Some damage by cutworms
is reported iu the Maclcod, Alder -

at Huron it. was necessary to resow
four per cent of the acreage. Thc
weather eil ttie present week has been

Oh, You Cupid!
Although rumors have been current for some weeks regarding thc
likelihood of it "-erlly happening this
report was nctiiully made good early
this morning, when Mr. I'. R. Mac

Subscription Prices
All over the civilized world the
prices of subscriptions to papers are
Insufficient. Thc present prices put
our newspapers on au unsound basis,
both morally and physically because
they are obliged to pay more (or
their par r than tbey can sell it for
when it is printed. Thus they eome
to depend upou then advertising to
mnke enough profit to OOVel the losses on tlicir circulation, (in this
basis thc one cent daily becomes an
Immoral thing. It means that the
editor leans too much upon his advertising aiid the Inference, of course
i.s that he must be mole or less eon
trolled by his advertisers. Uy charging enough for lhe paper, so that a
profit iw made Independently of the
advertising, undoubtedly the editor
would he placed on a more independent   basis.

This league, whieh was started In
May, hus just finished with one ol
the most exciting games of tlle season, when the Colts and Spittires
(lushed, and if there is anything in a

The game started with both teams
even for ihe tirst two innings, then
the Colt, began to get careless, think
ing that the Spitfires were au easy
lot, but the Spittires began to pH«
Up the score. Tlle Colls thought
thei hud better keep up their repu -
tatlon, so they got down io business
and in the last inning they made 5
runs, whieh made them victors by u
score of 7 to 5.

The verj favorable weather which

which will not have all tbe Irutt th y

lu di i issing i he que Iou of thinning, we admit that a tree may set
more fruit than it can possible bring
to perfection, as the fruit-grower understands perfection. Nature caies
notb.ug !ur the fruit except us an aid
tu produ-v seed; tlie orchardist caies
nothing foi seeds except as tbey ure
necessary to the production ul (nut.
We wish each tree to carry all the
trust .t can bring to commercial perfection,   and  no  mule.
At tbc same time, the tree must
tllakv new vegetative growth consist
ent with  its  age and the  variety.
The third requisite is that it should
also lurm enough fruit-spurs for a
simiiar crop in the following ysur.
Tbis ideal is the foundation of our
orchard practice,
When the tree Is fulfilling these
three requirements it is performing
its maximum duty to tbe ownerf If
it fails sho.-1 in an. one of tbeni, he

results of thinning is that the trees
will bear u larger and more uniform
crop the following year. The tend -

this,  however,  on llie  variety.
For  various reasons,  then, thinning'

Present Indications arc thai thia
year will see the largest, crop of tree-
Iruits British Columbia bas yet bad.
Throughout the province from Vancouver Island to tho Kootenays the
apple, prune, peach, Bear and plum
trees have been full of blossom, and
and there lias been nu loss from trust,
or unfavorable weather. Most of the
trees nre certain to have a heavy
luud ot fruit, of which very much
will bo undersized unless thinning is
practised, it is hoped that fruitgrowers will grasp tbe situation
rightly. Tbe prices [or utidersized
fruit are never very remunerative. It
is always tlie good, large, perfect
Units that, bring paying returns. This
year tbe difference in price between
fancy ami low-grade fruit will be emphasized, Large yields of fruit are
promised Id Ontario, In the Middle
States, Colorado, California, Mon
tuna, Idaho, Oregon and Washington
as well as Id iiritisb Columbia. Tbe
North western States, in fact, have
the bumper crop of tlicir history and
tbey look to the Canadian prairies
to buy a great deal of it, as times
are good in Canada, while money Is
scarce In the United states. This
means thnt there will be plenty ot
poor fruit for sale in uur markets
without nny from Uritish Columbia,
and the returns tor this cIiism of fruit
ure bound to be low. Neither do the
canneries want small fruit; there
is uu money 111 pie peaches for ouy
one. Kvery grower should resolve
tbat he will not grow any peaches
smaller thau"90's." Any shipper
knows that there will be no market
for the small stulT, and that even
In the earliest varieties we can grow
returns wlll be unsatisfactory for the
small grades. Fortunately there is
no good reason why any grower
Bhould have any percentage of the
small   si/es   lo   market.
It is unlikely that any fruit-grower will thin too much; it is quite
certain thai most growers will not
thin enough. While tbe average man
may   know      about   thinning,   he      is
short the nerve necessary to    carry
it otlt. Most of the growers in British Columbia have not yet had en -
ough experience to realize the difference in piolits on lurge and sniull
sizes. Those men who see ibe situation clearly and who recognise the
fundamental necessity lor adequate
thinning should use their Influence by
getting their neighbors to tuke it
