PENTICTON,       -       - B.C.
Farmers' Institute.
The meeting of the  Farmers'
, Institute on   Monday   night   at
! which Mr. Geo.   Heatherbell,   of
Colwood, B. C, gave an address
on fruit growing, was the most
poorly attended of any meeting
'of the kind ever before held  in
Penticton, there being only  nine
persons    present    besides    the
speaker.    This was probably due
to the short notice that was given
of the meeting, but as it was announced through the medium of
i the Press on Saturday,  to say
the least, there should have been
. a larger attendance of those in-
j terested in the all important subject to this section.    The Department of Agriculture is going to
a large expense in providing experienced speakers for the education of our fruit growers upon
up-to-date methods.     It is disheartening to speakers and discouraging   to   the   department
when so little interest is taken
on the part of those whom it is
designed to benefit.
Probably the root of the difficulty lies in the fact that the
centre of the Institute is so far
removed from this point, the
secretary residing at Kelowna,
thirty-five miles distant. The
only way, in our opinion, in
which to obtain real live Institutes is to have them embrace
b?s territory so that each locality
will be independent. It is impossible for members who reside
in Penticton, Summerland or
Peachland to attend meetings of
the organization in Kelowna.
Consequently, there is little inducement for people to join the
Institute, apart from the fact
that they are thereby entitled to
literature on fruit growing distributed by the Department. We
are glad to note that the Deputy
Minister of Agriculture is now
considering the question of dividing the Institutes so that each
locality may be independent of
the others. When this is accomplished each locality will have
its own membership roll and elect
its own officers. A live interest
will therefore be created ; meetings may be held as often as desired and will receive due advertising.
There is one very effective way
to get people to take a live interest in what would be otherwise a dry public meeting. That
is to feed them and entertain
them. A local Institute could
look after such matters ; the
ladies could be interested, music
and refreshments provided, and a
full house thereby assured.
Mr. Heatherbell, in beginning
his lecture, said that ho had been
in the fruit growing business for
twenty-three years. Part of his
land was dry and part irrigable,
out on the island irrigation was
not so much resorted to as in the
i.iterior. For a young orchard
too much water should not be
applied but the moisture should
be conserved by cultivation.
In treating of planting he said
that, if the trees were taken up
in the fall, they should be plant-
ad without delay as they contained little surplus moisture and
they would be dried out and
probably killed. The roots should
be trimmed even and cut slant
on the bottom to prevent decay.
In setting the tree in the ground
care should be exercised to keep
the roots separate. The top ones
should be kept up and the bottom
ones set first. The hole should
be dug deeper than the tree was
to be set, and the tree should be
put in a couple of inches deeper
thin it stood in the nursery. The
h)le should be filled with rich
soil but no manure should be
applied. The earth should be
tramped down until the hole was
about two-thirds full. A pail of
water might then b^ added after
which the hole would be filled
S. O. Canning Co.
A special meeting of the shareholders in the Southern Okanagan Canning Co. was held in the
Company's office Tuesday afternoon. A very satisfactory report was presented by the secretary, J. S. Heales, after which
the question of nutting in a fully
equipped canning plant came up
for consideration. It was decided unanimously upon vote to
erect a large additional building
with cement basement, and to
put in a plant capable of turning
out at least ten thousand cans
daily. It is purposed to keep the
stock as much as possible in the
hands of the present shareholders, and in order to finance the
enterprise, a further call will be
made upon them, only fifty per
cent, of the stock being called
upon so far. However, thirty
more shares will be placed on the
market at one hundred dollars
each. These will mostly be taken
up by present shareholders.
with loose earth. One year old
trees were preferable for planting and should be headed to
within about two feet of the
ground if it were desired to keep
the tree low.
There were two methods employed in pruning. One was to
produce a pear-shaped tree and
the other a goblet-shaped. Per-!
spnally Mr. Heatherbell preferred
the goblet shape as the trees
were not so high and fruit picking could be done easier. He
approved of the summer pruning
of tvvo or three year old trees as
the cutting off of limbs not required threw the growth into the
remaining ones and a much
better and larger tree would
thereby be obtained by a season's
growth. The practice might
also be followed in respect to
older trees but in taking out the |
limbs there was danger in tear-!
ing the trees or pulling off the
foliage or fruit. By summer
pruning, Northern Spy trees
could be made to bear much
younger than they ordinarily do.
Trees could be prevented from
splitting by boring holes through
the forked limbs and inserting
bolts with eyes. Wires would
be stretched between and then
twisted tight with a stick to prevent the limbs from spreading.
Improved crop returns were
being obtained by cross pollination. That is, an orchard, apples
for instance, would be planted
with two rows of one variety and
then two rows of another. The
varieties should be of kinds that
blossom at the same time.
Old and even moss grown trees
could be made profitable, if not
too far gone, by cutting off the
limbs near the trunk and grafting in new shoots. This method
was often followed even where
blackspot and canker existed,
provided the roots were vigorous.
The triangular method of
planting was superior to any
other as it allowed more trees to
the ground planted.
As regards spraying, arsenate
of lead and lime-sulphur solutions
were most satisfactory. The
lime-sulphur remained on the
bark for weeks and kept on
working. The fall was a good
time to put it on, and it should
not be applied after the buds begin to break into leaves in the
spring. This solution would kill
canker. It should be mixed 1 lb.
sulphur and 1 lb. lime to 3 gals,
of water and then boiled. If
boiled too much it crystallized.

Rifle Association Review.
The end of November will most
probably witness the finish of
the Association's practices for
1908. Reviewing the work of
the past season it is interesting
and very gratifying to the officers to note the splendid progress
made. Rifle shooting is a science
that becomes more and more interesting after a man has got
over his first disappointment at
finding that it is hard to hit the
bull's-eye and quite easy to miss
the target altogether. Once he
reaches this point he has passed
the recruit stage and commences
to become an enthusiast. The
problems of wind and light are
things to be thought out and
argued over.
Early in the season it was
quite easy to see who were going
to be Penticton's best shots at
the end of the year. These were
the men who started to note on
paper where their shots were
going, by this means being enabled to correct errors and make
the necessary allowances when
shooting at the same distance
another time.
During the season the Association held 15 practice shoots and
2 matches. 33 ranges were fired
at and the total attendance of
members numbers 334. Five
thousand and sixteen rounds of
ammunition were fired, 627 of
these being sighting shots. The
total points scored for these
shots, not including sighters was
13,459. This works out at an
average of 3.06 or practically a
magpie for each shot fired. This
is a very high average for an
Association in its first year, and
has only been obtained by the
good shooting of a few of the
members. J, R. Mitchell has the
highest aggregate score, his
average points per shot being
3.63. li. A. Rathvon is second,
being only four points behind.
G. F. Guernsey, J. VV. Edmonds,
F. H. Latimer, A. S. Miller, L.
C. Barnes, and C. Were followed
along in close procession with
very few points between each.
J. R. Mitchell wins the Government prize for highest aggregate score, this is a nickel-silver
salver stamped with the Dominion coat-of-arms.
The season will end with the
shoot for the W. T. Shatford cup,
the date of which will be announced later.

A Day of Reckoning.
The high prices that are being
asked for property on Main St.
are ruining the town. We dc
not intimate by this assertion
that Main St. has any special
claim to the business houses,
but we do mean that it is to the
interest of this, as to all other
towns, that business be concentrated as much as possible. Almost of the larger business buildings are now on Main St., it is
the general opinion that it will
be the future centre of busines?
operations. A moment's reflection, however, will reveal the fad
that scarcely a business building of importance has been erected on that street for nearly twe
years. The cause is evident. A
number of speculating land grabbers have got hold of the best
lots in the best locations and are
holding them at prices that would
stagger any business man. The
result is that instead of Main St.
being built up, it remains at a
standstill while other streets are
receiving additions in the way of
business houses. Business is being scattered io such an extent
t'nat it will take the town years
to adjust itself. This is one evil;
appearance is another, and usually the first remarks of visitors
are directed to the scattered condition of the business portion of
the town.
It probably would have been
wise had the business section of
Main St. been originally placed
oi the market with restrictive
clauses relative to buildings be-
i lg erected thereon. This would
hive settled the speculator, but
tiere is still one way to get at
him, and one way only. That is
by means of the single tax. Let
all property similarly located be
assessed at an equal value, whether a six storey building stands
upon it or whether it is grown
up in scrub, an eyesore to everybody, or a firetrap menace to the
business houses. A tax of this
kind would make the holders of
such property either improve
their holdings or sell out to those
who desired business locations.
During the coming year, the
council will probably accept the
provincial assessment, so there
is no immediate redress, but let
those who are holding business
lots, to raise in value through
other peoples'.industry, look out,
for a day of reckoning is assuredly coming.

,ln womanhood. If sorrow pressed
heavily, they brought her strength.
The half light, the soft air and tbe lack
��� of sound were balm to ber spirit
Nightlj she strayed up the coulee,
enstwnrd. south or toward the river,
until, early in May. n second incident
occurred and Interrupted her rambles.
She bad walked as far as the swale
thnt wns part way to the Missouri.
There she wns startled Into n sudden
halt. Prom n point ahead of her and
to the left sounded a gunshot.
She sank down cautiously nnd stayed
close to the ground, her fingers steadying her. her breath suspended. There
was no moon, and the stars were obscured by clouds. The cottonwooda
were a black, shapeless mass. She
watched them.
Nn answering shot rang out; but.
after a long wait, a reply came from
the grove. It was a laugh, loud and
She stayed crouching and presently
saw a small black object leave tbe
big blackness of the trees and advance.
Frightened, she arose and retraced
her steps, glancing behind ber as she
went. At the shack, having found the
latchstrlng, she backed Into the room.
Her father and sister were asleep.
Next morning, on a plea of not wishing
to alarm them, she refrained from telling of the shot. It may have been a
hunter, she reasoned, or a drunken
trooper or one of the Shanty Town
gang. But the laugh���It rang Iu ber
Several twilights passed; then sha
ventured out again. A Up of moon was
dropping down an unclouded sky; tb*
stars bung low and white. And whet
she neared the swale she saw, a goosl
distance before her, that small black
object separate itself from the grova
again and move forward.
She stopped. She was not frightened
now. She knew who it was. And when
she saw bis arms come up and caught
the glint of metal she called out to
him: "Don't:   Dou't!  It's me!"
There was u muttered exclamation,
und the arms fell. "Miss Dallas!" be
cried and sprang forward.
"1 ��� 1 was sure It was you," she admitted tremulously. "And you've been
guarding here all the ���time!"
Lounsbury was panting. "Suppose
I'd fired'/" he said. "I had a mind to,
"You'd 'a' missed likely."
"Maybe not, You see, I thought, well
-that Matthews or that precious
brother of his. they might get to bothering you folks. Anyway, ain't it dangerous for you to be out bere late like
"It Is for you. You get shot at���
keeping guard on us."
He thumped tbe swale Impatiently ,
with the butt of his gun.
"Oh. It was you," she persisted,
gravely enough. "Thnt is why I came
"Ah!   You mean that I can help you, j
Miss  Dallas,    Tell   me���tell  me,  what
can 1 do?"
"Dou't let Matthews kill you."
Lounsbury laid down his gun. When
be straightened he stepped to her side.
"Me?" lie said. "Well. I'm a match for
him.   You ain't.   But what else?"
She moved aside, averting her face.
"There is something. Miss Dallas?"
He snw she was disconcerted and
strove to put her at ease. "Do you
kuow," he said, "you're so tall tn that
coat you almost look like a 'heap big
chief.' "
She did not hear him. She wns not
listening The wished for opportunity was come. She was trying desperately to rally a speech. "You-you
ain't been round of late," she began
at last"    "I  hope"-    But she could not
"No." he said slowly. lie rammed
his hands into his trousers pockets. "I
haven't been around lately, but I didn't
think you'd uotice It"    lie darted a
glance al her.
"Was it dad:" she asked
"Yes. it was your father. I thought
be went out of his way to be-well,
kinda short, you know. I was only
trying f  be decent."
"Dad's fuuny." she said reflectively.
"Whenever we get to a chuck bole,
where ail of us might to pull t get ber,
he goes slack on the tugs. He's like
Ben that way. So 1 have t' go up t'
bim, stroke his inane, lix liis curb and

After while he gives a haw-bee-baw
und goes on."
Lounsbury did not laugh. "He balked when it came lo me." be said soberly, "aud it hurt. Afterward l kinda
got it into my head that none of you
wanted me."
She looked Straight at him. "But
one did���oue did," she whispered, choking.
He pulled his hands free of his pockets. "Oue���oue," he said huskily.
And uow everything was clear to
her. She knew just whnt to say. She
hud no feelings of self. The duty wns
not hateful or embarrassing. "Who?"
she repeated. "Don't you know, Mr.
Lounsbury?    Why, Marylyn."
"Marylyn," he echoed as if in a puzzle; "Marylyn!   You're joking!"
She caught a shade of reproach In
that aud misunderstood it "I reckon
you won't like her so well now," she
"Like her so well? I don't know
what you mean."
"She���she likes you," stammered Dallas.
Still   he  was puzzled.    "I  supposed
she didn't hate me."
"But now you know."
There wns no mistaking her.   Utterly dumfounded, he could not trust an
immediate answer.    "1 see, I see," he
said finally.
"And you'll like her just tbe same?"
He drew a  deep  breath.    His eyes
were on her face, trying to read it iu
the dimness.    Then, "I am not a cub
boy. Miss Dallas."
"You won't stay away," she persist-'
ed.   "You'll come."
"If I'm judging right, I mustn't  I'm
���I'm sorry."
"Sorry���just sorry!" ���
He strode back nnd forth a fewtlmes.'
"Why���why.   Miss   Dallas,   you   must.,
understand thnt n man can't���when a
girl-   Well, It 'd be low for me to talk
nbout it. thnt's all���out and out low." i
Something   stirred   her   powerfully1
then���something she combated and con-
I cenled from him by a touch of appar-i
I vnt anger.   "There's nothing low about
It." she  snld.    "A  man   ought to   be
! proud.   Oh." ns he was about to-reply,
j "yon don't know how she's felt!  She's
been sick over It, white and sad,..and
it night she'd cry." :

"And you're just sorry!"
"When did you tiud this out?"
"That    day    you    drove    Matthews
away.    She told me."
He walked about again. "I can't see
why she does," be mused pathetically.
"I can't remember doing anything."
"But you've l>eeu so good to us���even
nfter the way dad acted��� guarded out
here and seut that laud ollice man
down from Bismarck"���
He made a protesting gesture.
"Oh, yes, you did. And why? Why?
If you dou't care"���
A long silence followed. During It
she watched him, her very attitude Imploring, while he continued to pace.
All at once he stopped determinedly.
"There's a reason," he said, "why I
can't do what you ask���come to see
Marylyu and���and all that"
"Dad?    Ah,  he's  got  to  think  like
"No, not your father."
"Maybe"���the    bitterness    of    Mrs.
Cummings' slight Impelled It���"maybe
you don't think she's good enough."
"Dallas, uo, no!"   He put out a hand
to her.
She retreated.
"There's a reason." He let his arm
fall. "And it is fair and square. I'm
proud of It. too, aud you must henr
it."   His tone was significant, tender.
No hint of Ids meaning suggested itself to her. "Then 1 want to know It,"
She suld.
"1 didn't intern] to tell you," he began,
"at least for awhile.    When  1  was at
the shack last I made up my mind it
wouldn't do any good.    I suld to my-
seir. 'You keep quiet'   But"���he plucked off his hat and seut it whirling to
the gun-"l guess you'd have to kuow

Again she retreated.
"I'lease dou't go," he begged.   "I want
to tell you more, aud  I   want you to
say you believe me.   Y'ou must believe
There was nnother long silence.
Presently be "went buck and picked up
his hut and gun. "I know just where
it puts yo'.i," he said, "but, just the
same, I l��Dve you."
He was certain now that he bad
earned her displeasure. When he
spoke again it was ns one- who accepts
u sy.l Duality. "I love you, und 1
want you. I hoped you I:light think a
little of me some day. for I believe I
could make you happy, so it was disappointing to find out that you hadn't
thought of me that way; that you
were ligiirlug nn seeing me h'ke Marylyn."
���1 never had much idea of marrying,
bnf when 1 saw you that first time-
when you came In through tiie door,
J ou remember���why, then. I began to
think. Couldn't help it." He put ou
his hat and lifted the gun to bis shoulder "I even wrote mother about you,"
be said.
He was unprepared for tlie answer
she gave htm. for it was an answer.
Without.speaking, she buried her face
iu   the  curve  of   hpr  arm  and.  as  If
Did you     seized with an ague, begun to tremble.
"Dallas!"    he    whispered    tenderly.
"Oil.  my  dear girl!     I'm so glad!     So |

But be found  himself pleading Into
EDICINE mountain wns a vol-
cuno.    Out of ils rocky sum
mit and into tlie quiet air of
the May morning was rising
a straight blue column of smoke.
A flag wigwagged from the southern
lookout station to berald the phenomenon, and iu a moment the post was
agog. Keen sighted scouts hurried to
points of vantage, where tbey studied
the mounting plume. Far reaching
glasses were trained, amid lively surmise from tbe galleries fronting the
parade, while at barracks, blocking the
windows and through the porch, the
eager troopers gossiped and crimed.
But In the stocknde interest readied |
its highest pitch.    Braves, squaws aud
children  were strung along the upper
end of the Inclosure breathlessly watching the vapor thread.    Each  swarthy
face hnd dropped the musk of listless- j
ness.   Each figure wus rooted.   Not an !
eye   forsook   a   straight   line   to   the
belching mountain top.
For full three minutes the distant [
fire seut up a steady pillar, Then fort
aud stockade'saw that pillar suddenly
wabble, as if caught in tlie vagaries
of a fitful breeze���saw it wabble,
thicken, break nnd disappear, when
the butte again stood, a jagged tooth,
against the sky. Above it, innocently
���white, floated a hand's breadth of
i And now the trumpet rang. Obeying it, two detachments mounted. One
spurred away down river, keeping
Iclose in the lee of the bluffs; the other
jboarded the ferry and wus landed at
the cut north of Shauty Town, from
I where It made toward the Norwegian's. Behind an envious but feverishly happy garrison set about putting
an extra polish on its arms. The
grass was too short for u war pony.
Active duty had not been expected
iwithin the month, yet the time of
dreary waiting was up at last, for here
within striking distance were the hostile reds.
The warriors in the stockade knew
better. Like so many whipped dogs.
tbey were scattered to cover, there to
hide their bitter chagrin. No war party was come to harry Brannon. to lure
the troopers into buttle, to free the
captive village. A lone Indian���tin?
looked for messenger���hud fanned that
signal fire on the mountain, and by u
wave of his blanket he bad told them
evil news.
! To Colonel Cummings the seeming
early boldness of the enemy gave an
Inkling of what might be expected later on���in the summer, when there,
tvonld be good grazing and a smaller
force at the post. Already he feared
for the safety of the settlers living
within sight of the garrison ling. The
detachment landed at the cut was ordered to warn two of them. The third
was Evan Lancaster. To him tbe commanding officer sent David Bond.
But it was Dallas whom the evangelist sought He found her at work upon the plowed strip, cross dragging it
In preparation for the planting of the
corn. As she drove up and down she
walked hatless in the sun. Her buir
wns down and hung forward in two
braids. She wore the snug jersey that
had been her mother's. Her skirt was
tucked up, back and front, to be out
of the way. It disclosed no red fian-
ael petticoat, however.
Not far away was Simon, a starling
riding him to gobble the greenheads as
they bit. The bull was revolving sulkily on bis picket rope aud shedding his
long wiu(er coat upon the new grass,
in deference to his inborn dislike Dallas was wearing an underskirt of blue.
Though the evangelist had never
seen her trudging behind tbe mules, he
had often spoken of it pityingly. Yet
as he came toward her now he felt i
only an unbounded pride iu her unselfishness and in her brave efforts to
wrest a living from the soli.
"A   splendid   Ruth,"   he   murmured, |
ndvancing;   "u   splendid   Ruth   tolling

Seeing him, she gave a swift, troubled glance ut the shuck.   Then, avoid-

ing his eyes and without speaking,
she pulled up Ben nnd Betty und held
out a hand.
When he took It the pride of a moment before changed to compassion.
lie remembered that lie must tell her
whnt would alarm, for hi her face he
saw traces of many a sleepless night
und of a sapping worry.
"Daughter, you nre ill!" he declared
and kept a tiglit buhl on. her fingers.
"No; there ain't anything the mutter
with me. only"���still avoiding bis eyes,
she turned to survey tlie burrowed

"Never mind the sod." be said gravely. "I want to ask���did you see the
mountain?" lie loosed her lingers and
pointed an arm to the south.
She laughed, following his pointing.
"Yes, I did. Looks as if claims are
getting scarce, don't it? When a nest-
er has to file up there!''
Midway between shack and butte
was an ox team that had. been traveling to and fro across a quarter sec-
lion since dawn. The team was now
lit a stand, and their driver was
Slouching agaiust Ids plow. Beyond
him were several galloping dots.
"And you saw tlie cavalry?" said
David Bond.
She assented.
"One word will tell you what It
means, Dallas.    It's Indians!"
Sho    showed    no   sign    of   disquiet
Presently, when she had thought over
the announcement, sho turned round
lo liiin, frankly meeting his gaze for
the lirst time. "That's funny," she
said. "Why, Inst year all the wuy up
from Texas there wasn't un Iudiuu
botherod us!"
"Last summer liefore you came the
soldiers ut Brannon did not dure go
more thnn a mile outside the lines lo
hunt. It will be the same this summer. There Is that stockade full of
prisoners, and four of them are cou-
demned to be hanged. Before long the
Indians will be circling tlie post."
She looked away at the ox (earn.
They were being taken from the plow
und put to a wagon.
Then again she turned squarely.
"What about Shnnty Town?" she suld,
wilh meaning.
He understood. "Shanty Town goes
when the troops go, but"���hesitatingly
-"Matthews does not. He will stay
nt Brannon to act as interpreter."
"He will!" she Bifid and colored.
He colored, too. feeling himself reproved, but froul under the wide battered felt that hud supplanted the nubia his eyes shone with no resentment,
only fatherly tenderness.'
"Y'ou wonder why I do not remain."
lie began, "so that Matthews could be
Bent away.   1 shall tell you."
She let the reins fall to the drag.
"That Isn't it," she answered quickly.
"We have no right to ask you to do
nnything after the way dad treated
you. But the colonel sent you over to
toll us to look out. didn't he? And he
keeps a man over there-^pnys him to
stay���and that man is a sight worse
than an Indian!''
i "I could have that mnn dismissed."
lie said slowly. "Please let me tell
trou  why  I dou't.     In the  lirst  place.
the Indians nre beginning to act bad'.v
���very badly. They nre invading Crow
territory nnd stealing from peaceful
bands. They are molesting whites
wherever they cau find them and murdering So we can judge that there
well be hard fighting, lor the troops
will seek lo pay tbem up.
"Oil. Dallas, how 1 pray lo see trouble slop! I am going to tlie Indians.

"The colonel!" she Interrupted. Then,
hnlf resentfully, "Did the women folk
send any word?"
He was mildly surprised. "N-n-no,"
be answered, "they didn't, hut" ���
She laughed und picked up the reins.
"Well, dad 'II never leave tills quarter," she said decisively, "if that's
what the colonel wants."
The evangelist shook liis head.
" 'Thou dwellest hi the midst of a rebellious house.'" he quoted sadly.
"Now, If you come to the fort to

Brannon���"is strong in your favor. And
there is Lounsbury too. Why, that
man is helpless."
She averted her face.
"So you will lose nothing by coming
to the fort," he persisted, "while you
may save a great deal���your lives!"
"Dad will never go to the fort. He
hates 'em like poison."
"Yes ��� yes ��� lie's foolish and si i IT

They stood In silence for awhile.

Additional Locals
The Baptist congregation contemplate building a church on
their Main St. property in the
near future. A considerable portion of the funds has been subscribed.
W. Eugene Knox, impersonator and reader, will give an entertainment in Steward's Hall on
Monday evening, 30th inst..
under the auspices of the Local
Option League. Mr. Knox comes
very highly recommended, and
will doubtless be greeted by a
large audience.
The Penticton-Keremeos stape
has changed its route, and will
in future traverse the Green
Mountain route instead of that
via White Lake. A local stage
will carry the mails between this
point and White Lake, a distance
of fifteen miles, every Tuesday
and Saturday, returning the
same day.
As an illustration of the expanding business of Mr. M. J.
Henry, the foremost nurseryman
of Western Canada, it might be
mentioned that recently shipments were made from his head
nursery, 3010 Westminster Road,
Vancouver, to St. George, Bermuda, to China, and to Bellray
Castle, the home of Sir Arthur
Middleton, Northumberland,
England. Mr. Henry recently
supplied the full order for ornamental trees, shrubs and vines
for the Empress Hotel, Victoria.
This order was secured in open
competition with many outside
points. The total weight of the
shipment was over four tons,
probably the largest shipment
ever sent to a single purchaser
on Vancouver Island. This is
only another instance of the
phenomenal development of this
great industry. 1
forest Schools.
Two schools of forestry are now
in operation in Canada. Of these,
that at the University of Toronto
is the older. This was inaugurated in the autumn of 1907. It
is a distinct Faculty of the University and has a staff of one
professor, two lecturers and an
The head of the school and
dean of the faculty of forestry
is Dr. B. E. Fernow.   He is German by training, a graduate cf
the celebrated forest school at
Muenden, and has also studied
at the University of Kcenigsberg.
He has, however, been a resident
of this continent for over thirty
years,   was   for   twelve   years
(from 1886 to 1898) chief of the
Division  of   Forestry   of   the
United   States   Department   of
Agriculture, after which he was
head of  the New  York  State
College of  Forestry,   connected
with  Cornell   University,   from
1893 to 1903.   After several years
passed as consulting forest engineer, he organized the Department of Forestry at the Pennsylvania State College,  and thence
came directly to the University
of Toronto to organize the faculty of forestry in that university.
The course at the University
of Toronto is an undergraduate
one,   requiring  four   years    of
study.   It leads to the degree of
Bachelor of Science in Forestry,
(B. S. F.) with the post-graduate
degree of Forest Engineer(F.E.)
after at least three years practical work.
The University of New Brunswick, at Fredricton, N. B., also
offers a four year undergraduate
course in forestry, leading to the
degree of Bachelor of Science in
Forestry (B.S.F.). The course
was inaugurated at the beginning
of the present session (1908-09).
The professor in charge is R. B.
Miller, M.A., M.F., a graduate
of the Yale Forest School, one of
the leading forestry schools on
the continent.
In the province of Quebec steps
are also being taken to establish
a school of forestry. Courses of
study in forestry or preparatory
to forestry are also offered by
various other universities and
agricultural colleges. j
