suffering, Hundreds have been injured, either burned, crushed or struck
by falling pieces from the buildings.
The number nf dead is not known but
it is estimated that at least 500 met
llieir death in the horror.
Reports from tlie interior are most
alarming, Santa Rosa, one of the
prettiest cities of the State, is a total
wrick. There are thousands of homeless men, women, and children huddled together. The loss of life is nut
estimated. It will probably reach
the thousands, untune business building is lelt intact ami whnt was not

Another earthquake occurred in
San Francisco at 7.45 p.m. All day

The lire swept down the streets so
rapidly it was practically impossible
to save anything in its way. It
reached the Grand Opera House on
Mission Street and in a moment bad
burned through the roof. From the
opera house the lire leaped from building to building, quickly levelling
them. The " Call" editorial and
mechanical departments were destroyed in a few minutes, und the
flames leaped ncross to the Spreckels
building, whioh, with its lofty dome,
is the most notable edifice in San
Francisco. Thousands of people
watched the hungry tongues licking
Hie stone walls. At first no impres-
[sion was made, but suddenly there
; was a crackling of glnss and an
entrance was effected. The interior
furnishings of the fourth liuur were
j the first to go. Tliis was followed by
a spectacular illumination, The
ground windows of the dome showed
like so many moons; they burst and
gave vent to long, waving streamers
u( flame. The great structure which
had withstood the lorces of the earth-
qi uko, appeared doomed to fall a prey
to lire. After a while, however, the
light grew less intense, and the flames,
finding nothing more tu consume,
gradually went out, leaving the building standing.

is up tu tlio cily In lake up
tlie question and provide for a decent

enough to house swine let alone

It appeals be hud shipped sume apples
tn England Incorrectly marked, a
complaint had been registered by the
buyer in Birmingham, F.ng., and as a
warning apparently to tho trade, the
letter was published in oue nl the
departmental bulletins. Tliis was
resented by Mr. Smith who thought
he had been singled out above all
ethers because he was a political opponent ul the Minister uf Agriculture,
but Sir Wilfrid Luiii'ier guud naturedly
pointed nut that as one nf the ninner-
his laiiiilies ul Smiths, ho was nut
likely to be identified by the agent in
England, while .Mr. Fisher demonstrated that the honorable gentleman
was wrong in supposing that his was
a Inno case, several others were quoted
off-hand and as he stated no doubt
the reoord wnuld show more still.
The wisdom of the legislation proposed by tlie Minister ol Justice,
which looks to the preventing of
members uf parliament, who arc also
members ol the legal profession, Irom
acting professionally for those who
may have business with tlie House or
any of the departments, was well exemplified in Hie course of a debate
precipitated by Mr. Foster, in which
he charged that a certain concession
in the Yukon had been improperly
revived, at the instance of the senior
member for Ottawa, Hon. N. A. Bel-
court, acting for tlie concessioners,
and that Mr, Beloourt's firm hud
received, in acknowledgment ol their
services, a large blnck of stock in the
company working the concession.
This looked bad, hut Mr. Belcourt's
explanation Was quite reasonable and
disclosed no action on his part in anyway incompatible witii his duty either
as a member of parliamentor a lawyer,
Still the discussion showed how easily
tho best intentions and tho most upright actions might be misconstrued
and it was made abundantly evident
that it would lie much better for
everybody, il members ol parliament,
to let legal business alone that in-
volved dealings with tlie Government
or the departments.
All enquiry as to the action ul the
Department ol Labor with reference
to tho plasterers in Winnipeg, elicited
some interesting information one
afternoon, It appears a complaint
reached the department that snine
men engaged on a Government contract were not getting llie wages Eet
forth in the lair wage clause of the
oontract. The contractors were
warned to keep to tbo terms of their
contract and within a week iron- the
date of the complaint they had paid
uothe shortage. Cases constantly arise
where this department is doing excellent wnrk of this kind. Tin- crcatinn
of this branch of the service has been
justified many times over.

Methods of Treatment to Prevent Disease and Loss.
Below will be found information
regarding the spraying of fruit and
shade trees for the prevention of
fungus and insect diseases.
The greatest success will come in
preventing rather than in attempting to cure. Sometimes spraying
does not seem to be necessary, but
the time has oome when tbe mun
who does spray, legardleHs of appearances, will not suffer tho losses
of his less careful neighbor.
Be ready to spray this year. It ie
good insurance and will pay good
returns on short time.
Begin to spray the orchard early
More the buds swell in the
spring, and repeat the operation every two weeks for at least
four times and the result will be a
saving of from 86 to 95 per cent on
the crop.
If spraying solutions are correctly made and applied there need
never be any danger of poisoning
the fruit for food. Fruit to be
placed on the market should be
sprayed the last time with a solution that will not discolor it.
Bordeau mixture will destroy
inngus diseases and paris green
will kill insects. These two sprays
may be easily combined, making a
solution called paris green bordeaux, which when sprayed upon
the trees, will have the same result
as paris green and bordeaux mixture when sprayed on separately,
Look over the following groups
of trees to see what to do, and
when to do it for that particular
1 Spray with copper sulphate
just before buds start in the spring,
lor bitter rot, black rot and scab.
2 Spray unfolding leaves with
paris green-bordeaux lor bud moth
and apple scab.
3 Spray as soon as the blossoms
lall with paris green-bordeaux for
codling moth, curculio, canker
worm, caterpillars, scab and sooty
4 Keep the foliage well covered
with paris green-bordeaux until
fruit is nearly grown, for the succeeding broods of insects and further fungus troubles,
When the fruit is nearly matured
a spraying with auimoniacal solution of copper carbonate will have
nearly thesame effect as paris green-
bordeaux and will not discolor the
fruit. s
Do not put copper sulphate on
the tree after the foliage is out.
Flat-headed and round-headed
borers burrow in the base of the
trunk. Watch trees and cut out
borers whenever castings appear.
Keep all windfalls picked up and
destroyed or fed out.
1 Spray with bordeaux mixture
before the leaves unfold.
2 Spray with diluted bordeaux
mixture just after the blossoms
3 Spray with diluted bordeaux
mixture two weeks after the second
Diluted bordeaux mixture is used
lor the second and third sprayings
because of the tender foliage of
this group of trees. Pears may he,
however, sprayed each time with
bordeaux mixture.
Theso sprayings will be effectual
lor leaf spot, mildews, leaf curl,
scab, brown rot and plum pockets.
In case of pear blight, winter
prune all diseased branches, cutting off several inches below the
diseased area. Several weeks after
blossoming, remove all young dead
twigs in the same way. Use a knife
that is sterilized from time to time
by wiping it with a cloth saturated
with carbolic Acid, The disease
occurs nlso on apple and quince.
Use the same treatment.
All leaf eating insects can be destroyed by spraying with paris
green the foliage they eat,
Leaf lico and othor sucking insect* should be sprayed with soap
or kerosene emulsion.
Borers in maple and olm oan be poisoned from llie outside, 1
successfully treated in September arsenic compounds in thu form
by injecting carbon bisulphide into paris green nro ihe Btondard pi
the burrows and slopping tlicin up j ons to be used  against  the  1,
In the following groups ol plants
are given their respective treatment
1 In fall or winter remove all
canes infested with cane-borers,
orange rust and crown gall and
2 In spring, before the buds swell
cut off and burn all cancB badly
spotted with disease and spray the
rest with bordeaux mixture, repeating the spraying when the young
shoots are about six inches high,
and again in ten to fourteen days.
Aim to cover thc young shoots with
spray. This treatment is for an-
thraonose, oane blight and leaf spot
Spray with bordeaux mixture
before blossoming and twice after
the fruiting season.
In fall run over badly infested
beds, add a little straw and hum
Frequently renew beds.
These treatments will keep the
crown borer and the leaf spot disease in cheek.
Spray the following with paris
green when tlie insects appear.
Cabbage for cabbage worm.
Cucumbers, squash, pumpkins and
melons for the striped  cucumber
Tomatoes for the tomiitoo worm.
Spray potatoes with paris green
bordeaux for the Colorado beetle
and the flea beetle when they appear, this spray will also prevent
the potntoe blight.
Potatoe scab is treated by soaking the seed potatoes in formalin (1
pint in 30 gallons of water), for
about two hours. Treated potatoes
should not be placed where they
will get re-infected with scab spores.
Spray any of the vegetables with
6oap or kerosene emulsion for plant
lice and any other of the plant
bugs that suck the juices from the
plants. Care should be taken to
reach every insect on the underside
of the leaves.
The solutions are designed for
the destruction of the fungus itself,
must, therefore, cover all parts of
the affected plants. The solution
will not penetrate the tissue of the
plant and kill the disease on the
interior, but is effectual, more as a
preventive against the entrance of
the disease fungus into the plant
than a curative when the fungus
has established itself in the tissue
of thc plant.
Copper sulphate, blue vitriol, 4 lbs.
Quicklime, not air-slacked,    4 lbs.
Water 40 gals.
Dissolve the copper sulphate in
hot water or from a coarse bag suspended-in cold water; slack lime

solution to about twenty gallons,
into which pour the lime, diluted
to about ten gallons, stirring tbo
mixture. Dilute'further now, to
make forty or fifty gallons, Stock
solutions of the copper sulphate or
lime, rate one pound to one gallon
of water, can be kept indefinitely,
but will not keep when mixed.
After spraying the solution lelt
over should be thrown away.

Sir William Van Home is inclined
to treat seriously tho statement that
Hill proposes to build n new line in

Pacific bends north to avoid. There
is no pnss through the Rockies not
