Redistribution For
British Columbia
The provincial government has appointed Mr. Justice Macdonald and
Mr. Justice Morrison of the Supreme
court bench a royal commission to
' report on the basis of a redistribu -
tion measure to be presented to the
legislature at  the  next session.
Sir Richard McBride explained that
I the scope ot the commission was very
broad—to study the whole province
in respect to areas of population and
new settlements, work out a basis of
equitable representation and report
their findings to the legislature.
It. has been the custom of most legislative bodies in Canada to place
the arranging of a measure of redistribution in tlie hands of a committee
of tin' bouse, on whlcb would sit
members representative of both sides.
In   this  province  the  composition of
tlie  legislature at  the  present      time
precludes  any   arrangement   of      that
sort.   The  last  redistribution  mens
are in British Columbia was in l'JH-'.
Now is the time to get a good wheel. We have a splendid
line in both Mens and Ladies' at right prices. Also full
stock of Tyres, TubeB, Lamps, Saddles, and Repairs.
Baseball Goods—wc are leaders in
these. Come and inspect our line.
Also Lawn Tennis, Lacrosse, Football, Cricket, Croquet, and all
Sporting Goods.
Kootenay, Saskalta and Malleable Ranges, etc.

Remember me when I am gone away,
(lone faraway  into the silent land;
When you can  no more hold me by

Nor 1 half turn to go, yet turning stay
Remember me  when   no more  day   by i
Vou tell me ,>f the future that you '
Only  remember me;  you understand!
It will be late to counsel then or pray j
Yct if you should forget me for awhile
And   afterwards   remember,   do   not
For if the darkness and corruption
A vestige of the thoughts that once !
I  bad.
Better   liy  far  you  should   forget  and
Than  that you     should  remember
and  be sad.

New Baseball Schedule
Repudiated By Kamloops
Wants to Continue Former Schedule Although Kelowna One of Best Games of Season
Team is  Disbanded—Came at Kamloops Today-
Return Match to be Played in Revelstoke Tomorrow
The B. C. Interior league schedule
is again up in the air, Kamloops yesterday wiring that it would not recognize the new schedule arranged ut
Vernon on July 18 and that it proposed to continue the league on the
original schedule, which, owing to
Kelowna having dropped out of the
league, is obviously Impossible. The
Kevelstoke team will play Kamloops
today at Kamloops and tomorrow
•the Kamloops team will play Revel-
*1oke here but after these two games
nothing is decided as to future fixtures. 6
Yesterday the following telegram
was sent by L.A. Howson, president
of the Revelstoke Baseball association
to the president of the Kamloops association:
Our representative at Vernon meeting cannot assure us whether or not
you were agreeable and willing to
continue league under new schedule
Tormed at Vernon meeting on July 15
Answer ny wire my expense your intentions in this regard.
In reply the following message was
received bv  Mr.  Howson, from J.  A.
Gill,  president of the Kamloops    association.
Our association consider we are not
bound by new schedule. Propose to
continue league on original schedule
as agreed to and to claim deposits
us forfeited if other members of league fail to carry same out. Writing.
James A.  Gill.
ln consequence of Kelowna retiring
from the league three meetings have
already been held to rearrange the
schedule of game* The tirst, called
hy Dr. K.C. McDonald, wus held at
\ernon on July '.). To this meeting
Kamloops sent no delegate although
notified ot the meeting. A second
meeting was held at Salmon Arm ou
July 12 and ut this meeting, although Kamloops was represented the
Kamloops delegate declared that he
hud no ;>ower to act. The third meeting wns held at Vernon on July 15.
At this conference Vernon whb represented by M. Eastman, Kamloops by
B. Wells and Revelstoke by R. Dudley. A new schedule was drawn up,
the Kamloops delegute being eecre-
of the meeting. Now this schedule is
repudiated hy Kamloops which demands adherence to the former fixtures so far as possible.

One of the closest games of the
season was played on Monduy evening. The railroaders had a strong ug-
gregation und kept hitting thc ball
till 20:30. The Baby Giants were still
mere confident and kept the men of
steel busily employed. From a spectators standpoint the game was thor- j
oughly enjoyed throughout, the only
icgrettable feature was the decision ,
given at the close of thc game, when
a bull wus hit and came over the
roadway, the Baby (Hunts protesting
Cassidy, O.P.R. pitcher, struck out
seven men. Lee, Baby Giants pitcher
struck out six men.

Until recently basket, willow cultivation Iuih been a declining industry.
Serious injury was done to the trade
both in America und in Europe when
rattan and other substitutes began to
I be introduced, The demutid for willow is again increasing. Considerable
success has attended its culture lu
Northern New York and some places
in Ontario and British Columbia. It
grows best on deep, rich, humus soil
with a moderate amount of sand
which retains the required amount of
soil moisture. Although there are 05
different strains considered valuable
commercially, the varieties most in
use in America are the purple willow,
the American green willow, the Lem-
U-y willow and the Patent Lemley
willow. Of these the purple willow
is by far the best variety for American conditions, although many prefer
the American green willow.
• In New York state, willow plantations are owned by fanners who cultivate and harvest their own crop.
Cuttings are planted early in March,
These are from eight to ten inches
long, and are planted from nine to
twelve inches apart in the row, ami
two and a half feet between the rows.
Harvesting the rods begins about the
middle of January before the sap be-
uius to rise. The rods are tied iu
bundles and stood in a pit of running
water four to six inches deep. Tbey
are left in the pit until the sap rises
when the bark is easily removed.
\fter grading the rods into proper
height and quality classes, they are
bundled  .ip and  prepared for market.

A very large     number of eggs    are
spoiled   by   careless   treatment,     quite
apart from the matter of temperature
and the chief cause of deterioration
Undoubtedly arises from the common
habit of allowing the i's^s to remain
upon their sides. Tbe result of this
practice is that the yolk, which is
heavier than the "whites," presses
against the shell—an unnatural state
ed affairs altogether. The shell is unable to resist the action of the yolk
upon its tissues, air is admitted, mid
decomposition Immediately sets in. If
egga are to he preserved without the
aid of any artificial media, such as
"water-glass" or other lime solutions
they must either be turned over every
day or stood upon their ends. So long
as the yolk is kept suspended among
the "white" the egg remains good for
any reasonabh period, whether its ultimate object be to furnish food or to
produce a chick. If this fundamental
principle wen properly understood,
