The rush of passenger trafffc over
the C.P.R. has been remarkably heavy
nil winter, and Ihe proapecta ol a still
heavier traffic during Ibe summer

and tbis service will soon be resumed

In addition to this, however, it is
stated that the Trans Canada Limited

Successful Function in Aid of

"Time, place and the girl!" although
on this occasion there happened to be
the man too. Time, 9 p ill on Wednesday last; place, the old pint office

entertainment in aid of the widows
and orphans' lund, held under tbe
auspices of the Knights of Pythias and
Pythian Sisters. Tbe movement from
its inception, has taken hold of the
popular feeling and well over 200
people attended at the old poet office
on Wednesday to take part in the
proceedings. One hundred and four
people sat down to 26 tables and
played out a very interesting "whist
drive" till 11:30, the lucky winners
being Miss Muriel Buck, Mrs. T.
Lawrence, and Messrs. H. Graham
and J. Walk-.-r, the pr zes being very
Supper was then served and tbe
crowd wended ils way to the Opera
House where dancing was kept up till
early hours, to tbe excellent music ot
tbe Independent Band. It was gratifying to eee the interest taken in the
affair, as the cause is a noble and deserving one. It it understood that a
handsome sum will be turned into tbe
widows and orphans' fund. The committees of Pythian Sisters and Knights
left nothing undone to insure the success of the entertainment ai.il it has
been decided to make the affair an
annual event. All sections of tbe
community were present and there
existed that harmony of friendship
and genial bonhomie that are the
chief pillars of tbe great Pythian
"Friendship olt would longer last
And quarrels be prevented,
If little words were let go past
Forgiven not resented."
The success of the first movement
in aid of the (und, will be an encouragement for still further endeavors
next year for an even better attempt.
Tbe Reveletoke publio have reponded
liberally ts the call, and the cause,
coupled with the popularity of the
Knights of Pythias and Pythian Sis
ters in our midst will be a double incentive to the charitable public to help
in a scheme which is of such infinite
value, not only to the Pythian Ordor
but also to tbe country at largo.

The Arrowhead Dramatic Club gave
a splendid production of " The Chimney Corner" on Saturday evening

was fine, especially in the scene where
he discovers the loss ot the money. In
fact his acting all through wan excellent, and Mrs. Dunne as Mrs. Probity
pl.iyed her part to perfection. Mr.
Harkins as Solomon deserves special
mention as we were inforired that it
is Mr. Harkiu's first attempt on the

well eustained. The people of Nakusp

R. C. Brock Gives Some Sound
Advice on Fruit Culture—An
Industry With a Bright
Future Befoie it.
Nklson, March 27.—The address
given by It. C. Brock at the meeting
iu the court house of the Kiotenuy
Fruit Growers' association, was admittedly of so high ii chtiiactcr, aud con-'
luiiieil so much ot general interest to
the community at large, that the Daily
News obtained a verbal im report ai.d
this morning places the same befure
its readers.
Mr. Brock bus been appointed secretary of the K. F. G. A., and bis first
public utterance 1ms made a deep impression
In bis address Mr. Brock said:
I am going to tell you a story that
may be interesting to you. About 16
years ago there was an elderjy gentleman in the eastern states who had met
with financial disaster. No doubt
sum.' ol us bave had the same experience. He decided he would go west.
He came to Portland, Ore., got on the
boat and went up tbo Columbia river.
At Hood river au old man got on the
boat with a basket of bright red apples.
They attracted tbe eye of tbe visitor,
and be walked over to the old man
and asked him where tbey were grown.
"On the mountain tops there to the
right," the old man said (that was
about all yo« could see, at any rate.)
He went on and stopped over night at
The Dalles, Ore., and on his way to
Tbe Dalles he continued to think
about those apples. Next morning
be arose bright and early, having
made up his mind the night before
tbat be would return to the place
where those apples were grown. He
went back; the place was Hood River,
Ore. He got off the boat; there were
only about a dosen people living in
Hood River at that time, there were
not a dozen farms in the valley, Tbe
valley and the mountains round above
were covered with a dense growth of
immense timber, the pine trees averaging three to four feet iu diameter,
very little ul tbe ground was cleared,
just a patch ol one or two or tbe most
five acres here and there. He got a
saddle horse and went out to tbe place
the old man had described to him on
the boat. I. was a warm fall day. He
rode up to the feuce that surround, d
tbe little orchard, not more than 36 or
40 trees, and found that it waB very
much neglected. The trees were heavily laden, home to the ground, the
weeds were right up to lie limbs,
stumps all around, and a general ap
pearance of ack of care. The question
came into his mind, if they can grow
that kind of apples in this country
witb such culture as this, what could
they do if tbey would take the care
my o il father did hues iu Ohio, where
he had bis truck garden. That visit
resulted in the coming of the pioneer
grower of apples into Hood River
valley. He went east, brought his
family out and bought a small piece
of ground. Wilh a tutal capital of
$360, be began to improve and build
up an orchard of 160 acres. He went
to work and cleared a little patch and
planted 108 trees 20 feet apart, or ex-
I actly ono aorc. He had to buy seconds
from a neighbor because he did not
feel that he oould afford to buy first
class trees. Those seconds are today
without doubt the finest specimens ot
trees in the whole Hood River valley
Why 1 Because tbis man's whole
future depended on what those trees
would do, and be cared for them, cared
lor them so that his family often said
lhat he was more careful ol the trees
than of the children. Day alter day
he would walk around those trees
deciding juat how the different
branches should be trained, how the
roots ot the different varities should
bo fed, and in tbat way ho studied out
the orchard system that is being
followed in Hood River valley at the
presMiit day and that has made Hood
River apples famous the world over.
It may lie interesting to you to
know tho history ol the lirst apple
that grew on those trees. When one
ol the trees was three years old it
brought (orth one apple, and that was
a Ben Davis. Somo of you have very
little use tor the Bon Davis apple. But
tbiB Ben Davis apple was hiicIi a curiosity to this Ittinily and to the neighbors wbo bad no fruit and were wondering what would be the roault of this
experiment, that tboro was soon a
solid beaten path around that tree

It cannot be denied that the
present generation thirsts after the

scour around for everything that
may rouse this form of excitement.
Although the sensational journal,
the almost fanatic speaker, or the
brazen-mouthed preacher may appeal to certain classes, the mass of
humanity will concentrate more
thought and more attention upon
events, less morbid or vivid, but at
the same time, every bit ns interesting and without having passions

SAT!P.DAY, MARCH 28, 1908
Now that measles appear to be
so prevalent in the city and lhat
there seems to be but a rather faint
idea of what is required by tbe
provincial health act in regard to
the precautions that are lo be taken for the prevention of the same,
it will be oi interest to the general
public jf Kevelstoke to know just
what tne act save and we publish
herewith Section *7, which deal*
particularly with infectious and
contagious diseases:
Whenever a case of stmill-pux,
cholera, .-carietina. diphtheria,
whooping cough, measles, mumps,
glanders, or other contagious or infectious disease, exists in any house
or household belonging to which
are persons attending school, the
householder shall, within eighteen
hours of the time such disease is
known tu exist, notify the head
teacher ol such school or schools,
and also the Local Hoard, ol the
existence ol such disease; and no
umiiilser of such liuusi bold ibtll
attend school until a certificate b.-is
been obtained from ibe Medical
Health Offloer that infection no
longer exists in the house, and
that the sick person, hotii-c, clothing and oilier effects have lieen disinfected to his satisfaction; and
until such certificate shall have
lieen obtained, it shall be the ilutt
oi every member of the household,
and of the teacher, to use all reasonable efforts to prevent the association ol member" of the said
household with other children:
Whenever the Local Hoard, ol
any of u» officers or members, know
ol the existence in any bouse of
smallpox, cholera, scarletina,
diphtheria, whooping Dough, measles, mumps, glanders, or Other COTI-
lagions or infections disease, tiiev
shall at OOCe notify the head r.i
other master of the school or schools
inordinate tlur.-l afti-r such Dews
by the people that to satisfy them,
the press bus to make the mosl il
every sensation. There is sensa-
tionalism in the pulpit as well if
in the press, and yellow pulpitism
as well as a yellow journalism. It
has been BO from the lieginning of
preaching and will likely be so to
the end uf things. The methods
of the mild appealer to what ia
good in man -serve their purpose,
as does the plain, concise ami
straightforward policy and opinion
ol the press, which probably do the)
most for mankind, but tbe tier>
zealot, the sturdy denouncer of
wrongs, the indignant protestor
against all forms of sin, has DO
doubt a useful place in this world.
There are people who can he awakened only by shouting in their ear-
and even that is nut alwai - IU<
eessftil. Hut the tendency "f bum*
an nature in these degenerate ilui -
—if they I"' degenerate—ia to fear
th*- open mouth of the loud talking
exhorter. His methodl aro not
satisfactory. Than is always fenr
that in order lo secure triumph   f
his view, and opinions, he will resort to the prison, the scourge and
every conceivable form of punishment and there are very many
people who rerogm/.e lhe fact, that
tbflW methods entirely fail. And
yet can we afford to dispense with
them entirely, or at lea-i lhe remembrance ol them?

old, ragged, neglected orchiirJ when
lie brut came there. He said to li'tn-
►elf. "If Iruit of that grade can l.e
grown with ihe s nt of culture, or lack
of it, what cun be grown with intensive, careful culture ? When lie lind
his Iruit growing be selected the very
best; nothing went out of tbe valley
that was not perfect. He shipped the
first carload of Spitzenhergs and Yellow Newton Pippins that went Irom
that sect ion to New York city. Ho
pack, il them carefully, making them
uniform in size und color, and absolutely In e from tiletiiiahea- the blemished apples were fed tu the hugs or
made into apple bin ler or something
like lhat. This was an i xperiineiit
with him. He hardly knew what the
result ivo -Id be, hn he considered
«hat the remit, bad beeu iu other
line'. Hia motto was "Honesty is the
beat policy.''
Along ihe same lines be used labels
such us you sec before you on that
table. They were attractive.; a man
seeing a box with labels like that on it
would ihiuk tbat a man who had snf-
Huient ideals to cause him to bave
tbat Iniiel on bis box would cause him
to put unly first class Iruit inside the
box. That policy lias been followed
over since by the Hood River Apple
Growers' union and other Hood Hiver
institutions that have followed its example, and today you can go to almost any part of the world and say
"Hood River" aud they say at once,
"Yes, that ia the place where tbey
grow the fine strawberries and apples."
Along tbe same lines, in the early
history of the Btrawberry trade tbey
found it necessary to confine themselves to one or two varieties. Why?
Because by sending out au indiscriminate collection some would not be so
satisfactory as others, and these would
reflect discredit on the valley and its
products as a whole, because when
people got these soft berries, they did
not pay attention to the particular
variety, but called them all alike,
"Hood River berries."
Now, apply these principles to ourselves; it will not be long before people
will talk about berries from this district, not as Maguons, ur Clark Seedlings, or whatever variety it may be,
but as "Kootenay berries," and that is
tbe way you want tbem to do. I,often
have to correct people who say, "I believe I will get some of those Hood
River Berries to plant." The same
thing applies with regard to apples.
They have made a specialty of a certain line of apples, and now "Hood
River apples" are famous all over the
world. They grow largely, as you see
by those labels here. Yellow Newton
Pippins; also, they have made a specialty ol the Spitzenberg apple. The
other tarieties are being cut short, no
more being planted, a few being held
to produce au income while the younger orchards uf the first-named kiedo
nre coming into bearing, but in time
they will be eliminated. Now gentlemen, it is only a question of a little
time before you will have to determine upon a few special varieties that
will grow bei-t in this district, and
that are acceptable to the market, aud
confine yourselves very largely to
those varieties. At present you figure.
"Well, it does not make much difference what we grow, we can sell almost anything." But you are not the
only ones who say thai. Your neigh*
bors are thinking the same way. Some
like the Baldwin, some the Northern
Spy, some the Greening, etc. After a
while you will have an indiscriminate
lot of fruit, and when, later on, it
grows into a large quantity, where
are you going to market it ? Kootenay district is not going to have a
population in 15 years large enough
to consume all the fruil. you can produce when these new orchards begin
buaring. You will have to look (or
your market outside tbo Kootemiys:
it is usually desirable lu havo a market
imtsidc, anyway, becauie the outside
market* are those that pay the largest
pi ices for fruit.
Iu determining the varieties tu
which you should tlcvott most ol your
attention, th. re arc many things to be
considered. Tlie last thing of all is
what you like yourself. I: Is i.ot
what you like to eut, it is what the
purchaser will buy, that concerns you.
Now, in apples, thero are not mine
than a dozen varieties probably tl at
are standard and in universal demand.
And those I'osen varieties are the ones
that bring (up notch prices. Why,
then, are you growing .-something else
that will not bring mo e than hall as
much, and that later on you may not
bo able to sell nt all? It duos not cost
any mure (0 raise the best varieties,
and alter you get them well advertised
they will sell themselves Hood
Uivnr Iruit has made such a name for
Itsell that today a man does not look
inside a box witb the Hood River label
on it to see if the fruit is good I
know of an Instance of a man whu
bad never before bought applet of the
Hood Hiver onion coming in one yi ir
am'say in l', "Have you amy apples of
this variety?" "Yes, we hnve 50DU."
"What do you want for them? ' They
told him lhe price. "I'd tukeall jou
have." "Would you like to look at
them?" "No, I knmv what Hood
River apples me I have seen them
many times." Now, when you bring
Kootenay to that position you will
not be obliged to take a dollar, or $1.50
or $2 for these high grade varieties.
You will get everything thut is coming to you in the market, and you will
not have to go to a lot of trouble to
Ilinl buyers, either. And it will not
take you Ion); lo reach tbat position
if you si art right. It took a hard pull
to get the Hoi.d River Apple Growers'
fellow. And then every man who hus
not the interests of the assooiat.on nt
heart, instead of going to the office
and tl.id mg out what is wrong, he goes
out and s iva, "T ey beat me out of
ad much down there," and he knocks
it. That is not the right spirit to Save
in a thing of this kind (Applause), if
you were entrusted with a sum of
money to invest for me, and you make
an error, bu lung as you did tbo best
yon knew, I should uot jump ou you.
I dwell on this feature, because then
is not an organization that gets
through ils first few years of work
without mistakes here and there, aid
the people who pull out because of
them are just the kind we do not wont
in.    (Applau.-e.)     II they are not prc-

union started. The first year it
started nearly everyone joined (I will
tell you this because you may have
had your own experience in the past).
At the end of the first year a few mistakes had been made.
In one instance two carloads ol Ben
Davis apples were shipped to San
Francisco and not a cent came back
for tbem. Nearly everyone in the
valley bad some apples in those cars.
So they said, many of them: "We
don't want anything more to do with
that organization. That manager
robbed ue," and there were all sorts ol
stories. II they had taken the trouble
to go to the ollice and enquire, the
sheets were there to show what had
happened, and while there might bave
been robbing somewhere along the
line, they would have seen that there
was nothing wrong in the office of ibe
organization itself. However, as a
result of one or two mistakes, nt the
end of the first year fully 5U per cent
of the members dropped out. Next
year they tried lo get along by themselves, but alter experiencing the benefits and conveniences of the organization, after one year of idependent
operations tbey were among tbe first
to come aud sign up their contracts
with the association, and at the pres
ent time there is hardly a man of th*
original members wbo is not in good
Btanding and doing business through
the association. Who is there among
you who baa not st least made one
mistake a year in business? Is there
one in the room? II there is, will be
hold up his hand?     I  will venture to
pared to stand hy the organization
even when it fulls into a mistake,
they are of no use to the organization.
But I will guarantee, if I have 15 or
20 first class men behind me who will
back me up and go through the next
two years' work with me, that we will
put pou on the road to make tbis district as famous as Hood River.
But one man cannot do it all. He
has to have tbe loyal support, not
only of as well. Every member must
work for the large growers, but of the
small ones and have at heart the interests of this association. A little
while ago we had a discussion as to
whither or uot the directors of this
organization thould be paid their ex
penses. ler attending its meetings, etc.
Some of I lien, took a praiseworthy
stand, saying tbey did not think tbe
organization was able at the present
time to do this. But, gentlemen, il
you do not pay I hem for their time,
do you treat tbem right iu other respects, do you give them thanks for
what they are doing, which is of more
Vrtlue to them than the money invented. They come and Bpend days
and days during the year for the good
of the organiz.tion as a whole, while
you are out on your land growing the
fruit. Does it, in one sense, make any
difference to them whether you sell
your fruit in the right way or not?
When you are at home, remember
those things, and remember tbat all
the work is not done with tbe shovel
and the plow.
Now to show yon what a man who
understands bis business oan do.     He
tay one mistake will not begin to
oover it. A dozen mistakes is at tbe
door of every one ol you. If the asso-
glut ion should make a dozen mistakes
iu the year, does it mean as much to
you as individuals as a dnzi n mistakes
on the part ol each of you? Isn't Ihe
association in a better position to
avoid such mistakes than you are as
individuals? Bat when sn association
make* a mistake everyone ia perfectly
ready to lay it at the door of the other
can save you thousands ol dollars Not
this year, not next year, but in the
future. Ynu are not making an investment for the present alone, you
are making it for all time to come;
not for yourselves alone, but for tbore
who come alter you. Gentlemen, if
the Hood River growers had known
18 yetri ago ttbtt they know tialay,
where might they have been now, bow
much might tbey have Bnved? Yju
can begin   now   with   tbe   result  ol
'heir sixteen years
perience It may seem fo
ot you to invest $-00 i
a man just to go around
V irk and ex
uii ih to some
i month iu
und look al
your orchards mid tell you what
should be done and what should not.
But I will cite one Instance in tl-nt
connection, from my own personal
knowledge. A certain manager was
employed with the understanding that
it they happened to have Irosts tiny
would he at liberty to bu relieved ol
his services beoause they would have
no fruit aud therefore would not re-
qut'e ii mui) .ger. This manager had
sufficient faith in the weather man to
agree to lhat arrangement. However,
about the usual time the frost came,
and most of tbe fruit was gone. The
manager went to a nearby Diehard and
investigated. He found on close investigation that only about two-
thirds of the blossoms were killeit.
Now in this particular Hia.rict they
had a great deal of trouble with the
eodlin ninth. You have not got this
pest to consider yet, but when )•• n gel
it. I leel sorry for you. It requires
more care to keep the orchards nee of
this pest than of any other there is.
However, following up the atory, the
president of the association was ol the
kind tbat always loses ail the crop,
'everything is gone, there is nothing
left." lie culled up the manager and
said, "1 buve no Iruit left in the
orchard, not a thing," Well, early
the manager happened lo have been
out early inqestigutine, aid tbe orchard at which be locked wits in a much
worse place for frost than tbat of the
president of the association So be
said he hardly thought it likely that
everything was gone. "Oh, yes," tbe
president replied, "the entire crop is
killed; there is no use thinking of
epraying for Codlin moth; I am just
going to let it go." The manager
pleaded with him to continue his
preparations for spraying, but be
would not think of it. Next night
tbey hud another frost that destroyed
about half the blossoms that were left
from the first or.e, but still there were
a few left in the lower orchard when
the manager went to examine it in the
morning. Well, the president came
to town that day, and he was about
the bluest man you ever saw. He
declared he would not spray a tree.
This manager was confident that this
man had Iruit enough in hit orchard
to justify spraying that after talking
it over he went to the hank and deposited enough money to cover the
cost of spraying that orchard, with
the understanding that if there was
sufficient fruit raised on the trees to
pay for the spraying  he  should  have
upp] is will be greater than can be so'd I
loci Iy H es it cost anything o,
griiit, a tree brought tn bearing age?
I mu not going to tell you anything
yet about what, varieties you should
plant. Jinny lutvu have asked me,
but I have not been hern long enough
to tell ut. present. There is plenty of
time to learn but one thing wo nms'
do, and that is to decide on say about
half a dozen varieties, not more, anil
confine our planting to these varieties,
I am speaking at length on Ihe apple proposition liecatiie it is probable
tbat apples and pear will become the
slnplo fruits of this district Most if
you are growing strawberries simply
to keep going until your treeB begin
bearing. It is not desirable tu grow
such perishable fruit, because there is
b i much trouble, and ao much loss;
thoy must be harvested within a very
limited time, when pickers are hard to
get, but with fr it like uppleB ami
pears you have n goal long peril d it
which io dispose of ibein. 8u it re
solies itself into a question of whet he
or not you shall grow the soft varieties
of apples. I would say no. You have
lo dispose of them in the fall, tin
others you can sell in the fall if you
wish, and if yon do not wish you d"
not have to. In Hood River ive begin
shipping Spitze ibergs as soon »s they
are oft' the trees, and we are shipping
this variety ustil the middle of January, I venture to say, most of yotu
apples of all varieties arc gon* before
that time. From then on we ship
Yellow Newtou Pippins, until the following June. I have seen many shipped all tbe way to England that weie
started on their way about June 1.
This is the quality of apple you want
to grow. You can sell them in tbe
fall if you wish. Generally we have
them sold by the beginning of November, but tbey are not shipped until we
have time to get then, in proper shape
Tiiut takes care of the help problem,
keeps, tbem employed all the year
around and it is easy to retain help
thut way, but when you try to pick up
help for a month's work or two in tbe
rush season and then let them go,
then you find it difficult. As I said
before, I am uot advocating these
varieties, or any varieties at present,
but 1 know where there are a number
of these trees in bearing and I shall
speed the coming season in careful
study of them and then I shall probably be able to tell you what varieties to grow, and what will bring the
growers the must money, and until
then I wish it to be veiy clearly understood that I have not recommended anv particular variety.

bis money back, but if there was not
sufficient fruit even by a single box,
he lost it and the president retained
the money.
Now, have you any idea what the
result of that man's crop was that
year? He had 8'I0 boxes of peaches
and 1400 boxes of apples, that sold ut
$2.25 a box. Did that manager's advice do anyone any good? Did it help
to pay his salary? That one fruitgrower had made mure through his
advice than the entire year's salary of
the malinger; be was getting $1 (HI a
year, and 1100 boxes at, say $2, makes
$2S00 And I will venture ti say lhat
iiiiiii nitter remembered that the manager bud done him any particular
good. If lhat orchard had not I ecu
aprayul tbe fruit would have been ut
leait 75 per cent wormy, and wormy
apples are unsaleable at any price in
that locality.
You will plit it certain varieties ol
apples lhat I might name or rather I
will ask someone here to mime sonin
brand that is pretty generally planted
(Someone names "Spy," "Yellow Newton," "Mackintosh Red.') That ia
what I wanted lo hear spoken. Now
why do you plant Mackintosh Red?
Is there anyone hero wbo likes that
apple? I believe Mr. Johnstone had a
preference for it at one time. (Mr.
Johnstone: "I had until 1 found it
dropped of the tree.") Now, as I said
before, there are many reasons why
you might grow certain varieties',
but the reason of chief concern to you
is because the market wants them.
Mackintosh Red ia not generally want
ed in far away markets. This yenr
no doubt, ull you have will be sold at
good figures, but they will be sold
locally.     Before long  your output of
I think my recommendation will be
ready in time for next year's planting,
In that connection I suggest that you
wbo bave ideas as to four or five suitable varieties, plant them and let them
grow this year, then if at the end of
the year we lind they are not the most
desirable we will have them grafted
while they are young and small, and
small, and you will uot be much behind, while if they are of the kinds
found to bo the best you will be just a
year ahead Hut it is not necessary
to try a great number ol varieties. I
think I shall make u list of the best 10
or 12 coinmerci il varieties to which
you I'liu limit your choice; they will
not neeesaiiiily be tbe brat in ull re-
tpeott, but tbey w.ll be nuchas are
good sellers. As for the other varieties you have planted, continue to
take good care of them. It may in
ti rest you to know lhat in thll orchard of which I spoke early this evening the variety grown was piincipatly
Bon Davis, and the variety bringing
in the most money per sere waa the
Red Cheeked Pippin, The next was
Hon Davit, next the Yellow Newton
Pippin, tho fourth I do not remember
tbe name, and the fifth was Spitzenberg, Now, the Spitzenberg that
brings tlie greatest price in Hood river
is one that has the lowest yield per
acre. It ban been fotiad advisable
sometimes to plant a certain amount
of Ben Davis (or pollcniziug, (or ir
stance; it is very prolific iu pollen.
A sum of $72.75 has bsa*n netted

that this sum will be largely increased.
