WAHjUt ��
Devoted   to   Advertising   the
Mineral Resource8 aud Large
Fruit   growing   Area  in   the
fertile Slocan Valley.
Our Fruit Growers' Column,
Farming has been carried on for so
long without tho aid of ariilicial manures that it is natural that I hero should
havo been much prejudice against their
use, but they have won their way into
tbo favor of farmers until the trade in
fo.tilizevs has groan lo enormous proportions, and very few fanners in wcsl-
* ern Europe do entirely without ihem.
In Ihis article I propoffe to consider the
advantages or otherwise of their uso.
The (peal weakness of farmyard man*
���.-,..: is that wo cannot verv readily control its contents, We might do llili
to a limited exti nt if wo fed our animal,
for the sole purpose of making manure,
and, indeed, this was done not long
a_;o in Britain when cattle wero f.lte.l,
an I the farmer loiked for his cliief
profit in the increased yield cf wheat on
his land next year. By manuring witli
"-* farmyard manure we almost, always are
applying aome ingredient which the
land does not require, indeed we may
be doing a positive injury to the
crop, for instance, if fruit livei aie
making a very heavy growth of wood
and leaves, it is an indication that their
is plenty or possibly too much nitrogen
present in the soil, which at the same
time may ho very deficient in potash or
phosphoric acid. N.w, if we attempt
to supply the deficiency of the two
alter dements of p Innt growth by giving more farmyard manure, tie at the
same time have to give still moro nitrogen, whpreas by carefully applying the
proper proportions of artificial manure
vc might supp'y exactly what the tiees
require. Oherri.s, especially the Bwoet
varieties, Will not stand much manure,
orrathct, much  nitrogen; it causes too
* rapid a -trowlh and the disease of gumming, but a liberal dressing of potash
should result in uioie $d tiucr fruit,
and a plioephulic maj**"i*e should have a
good influ. uce on -The flavor and color
of the fruit*.
There are other considerations wliich
fhuild help us in deciding whether to
use farmyard or artificial manure. One
of the chief determining factors is the
position of lhe land and its accessibility,
for farmyard manure is bulky and it
' wiil not pay ior a long haul uphill. It
should bo u-cd principally where tho
least labor is involved in handling it,
and the concentrated artificial manures
kept lo supplement tho soils In remote
nnd inaccessible places. Any marked
deficiency of any one element of plant
food.is best supplied by an artificial
manure, and the requirements of any
crop that has a particular craving for
some form of nourishment is also best
supplied by an artificial manure. The
enormous fieight charges ou artificial
manures tend to make them very ex-
pen.-ive here, and we must use tbem
with extra care if we are to make them
pay for their cost, we Bhall tend to use
only the most concentrated forms as
the freight rates will bo too high on
some forms of manures tbat would be
very desirable near the Coast. Nitrogen
is hy far the mcyst expensive element of
plant foid lo purchase, and probably we
shall learn lo grow certain green crops,
principally o'over, by ploughing in
wliich we obtain a cheap supply .of this
necessity oi plant life, b*it we shall always du well lo purchase a lilllo nitrate
to -limu'ate lome ol 0111 cr*.p*.
Either farmyard manure or a green
crop pi lUghod in bas a brneficial effect
apart from iis chemical value, as it improves the tisxture of the soil; besides
thifi, by their dtcay in the soil, various
..mentations are set up and chemical
acti in takes place, and by this chemical
action the soil itSJlf ii acted upon and
its mineral contents di*_*sted or dissolved and rendered more available for

New Denver, Jan. 11,1908.
Editor Slocan Mining Review.
Sir,���May I point out to the
author of the manly and outspoken
letter signed " Pro Bono Publico,"
which appeared in your last issue, two
or three directions in which his zeal to
reclaim drunkards might find employment. One is tho case of a man who
was " Siwasbed " by the joint action of
lho police and hotel-keepers of New
Denver, and who has since found un
asylum and plenty of booze to enable
hiin to be frequently drunk a fow miles
away. In case "Pro Bono Publico "
lives in New Denver be might rxpend
bis energies on at least two young asses
who frequently make themselves the
laughing stock of the town and are a
nni.'aiK'C to the public, and who, like
" Pro Bono Publico," have learned " to
use the good things of lifo."
May I also point out lo Ihe general
public, that the cause of the death of
Charles G irrety is one of the minor Incidents of this c introrersy, the real
point of which is : aie lhe laws relating
to the sale of liquor at present on the
statute b oka of British Columbia to be
ignored ? If these laws are wrong they
should be amended or repealed, but
whilst they are on the statute books
they should, I believe, bo enforced.

The Editor, "Slocan Mining Review."
Dear Sir,���I must confess to a feel-
it*g of surprise that your laat week's
i.-stie did not c,,n ain a letter from Missioner Baynrs renouncing any claim to
the author, hip of the verses published
on Jan. 2nd. Does Misuloner Baynes
really wish the public of the Slocan to
behave that the verses are his own composition? It would appear eo, for on
Dec. 20lh your paper announced that
" a sea-onable poem by Missioner
Baynes will appear next week," and on
publication tho verses were prefaced by
tho words: " Seasonable lines for end
ol year 1007 by Key. Baynes. No contradiction has been forthcoming.
I possess a collection ot children's
hymns in wliich three of these presumably original verses appear word for
word. This collection was published in
England in 1879, and the origin of the
verses is there stated to be American.
As for thc remaiulng two verses I am
not prepared to say anything beyond
the fact that the whole five read as the
composition of one min���even if they
are not, Mi'sionor Baynes ia guilty of
del berate plagiarism (not to use an
uglier word) in using tbe three I can
epeak definitely of.
1 should like to ask Missioner Baynes
if he knows the epithet by which men
designate one who appropriates to his
own use the property of others. Does
he not think that any man to whom
this epithet is applicable is one whose
voice should be silent on any matter
whatsoever, social or religious ?

Skating at Last.
The New Denver Rink was thrown
open to the public on Tuesday night,
nnd a largo crowd took advantage of thc
B��t opportunity there hns been to indulge In the popular pastime this wilier. Previous experience of climatic
conditions tends to the bejief that good
skating will not last last longer than
thro.) weeks or a month, so it is a cage
of cutting ice whilst thu frost lasts. It
is to bo hoped the hockey club will try
conclusions with Sandou at an early
Xocal anc- General.

Bolander. The aged lady had reached

of feoling suddenly unwell, and a few
minutes afterwards she expired in the

The University Club of Nelson has
prepared a memorial which will be
presented to the Provincial Legislature
during Ihe forthcoming session, praying (or an additional endowment by
setting aside a much larger grant. It
is claimed therein that the amount of
revenue from the grant ol two million
acres of" land made to the provincial
university, wilh values of minerals and
timber deducted, is sure to prove totally
inadequate to produce the amount of
endowment which will be required.
The University Club has issuod au
elegant 16 page booklett, in wliich the
case ie fully and practically made clear.
" What do you know 7 " ls a quory po
habitually on our tongue, that it has
lately occurred to us that it of,times
may convey an idea of bad breeding.
" What do you know ? " has been derived, cultivated, assimilated, or whatever you will, from au ever pressing
want of news, Which we need in our
business. Wc have found OUrsclf tiding
it as a salutation when "Good morning,"
" Come iu and look out," " Hullo
yourself," or "How's your health?"
would have been more appropriate.
Maybe we have advanced the query
many times to you, but can you accuse
yourself of ever telling ua anything that
would interest our readers, " Don't

Arnold Disappears Again.
Arnold E. Fauquier, well-known in
this district, has once again been guilty
of borrowing plumes to feather his nest
with, tho facts surrounding which are
as follows. On lhe recommendation of
"Corduroy Brown," 'another well-
known old-timer 1 ere, whose mechanical ingenuity applied to safe building
has won for him renown, he secured a
lucrative position as accountant in the
office of a Seattle firm of Bate makers,
wheie " Corduroy " was also employed,
but the orthodox way of gelting rich
was too slow a game for Aruold, for ono
morning Arnold was missing, eo was a
wad of $2000.
Thero are also Hcvsrul business men
in the Slocan who would lie delighted
to learn of the present address ol this
slippery customer.
It transpires that just as the firm's
auditor had discovered the discrepancy
in the accounts, that a fire broke out in
tho building, aa a result of wliich
Brown sustained a broken noso and
singed whiskers.

His mother laughed, removed the offending shirt and immediately proceeded to investigate the methods of her
laundress before making complaint at
the store of new flannels sold but a few
weeks back as unshrinkable.
"Bridget," she asked, entering the
kitchen, where an energetic Irish woman was vigorously plying an iron,
"Bridget, how do you wash Willie's
"Sure, ma'am, jest as 1 wash ivery
thing else, with plenty of hot water
and soap, a good rubbin" on the board,
and a pipin' hut iron," repeated the
girl  complacently.
"Oh, Bridget, Bridget!" aaid her mistress with a sigh���for ruined shirts and
the money she could not ask to be refunded. "Don't you know that is all
wrong���every single thing you did?"
"Wrong, is it? Sure an' I've washed
flannels long afore yez were born, an'
its the furrst time I've iver been tolt
I didn't know bow," and Bridget sniffed   Jndignantly.
"But, Bridget, just look at these expensive shirts I bought Billy not a
fortnight  ago!"

"Well, an' what's wrong with them.
It's mighty dirty they were, and not
the speck of a smut is there on them
now���an' it's hard rubbin' it took, too,
ma'am,   to  get  them   that  clean.''
"Yes, but see, they are stiff as a board,
and so shrunken that they must be
thrown   away."
Bridget, who was more ignorant than
sullen, looked a trifle abashed, and said
"Weel, ma'am, it's sorry I am If the
shirts don't suit yez���perhaps you'd
be tellin'   me how   to do  it better."
"Certainly I will, Bridget. After all.
there has only been one shirt spoiled
and I'm sure you'll uo better next
"In the first place, you should not
have used hot water���lukewarm is
the only heat that does not shrink
flannels. What is more important,
every water through which you wash
and rinse them should be of exactly
the same temperature.
"Then you should not have soaped
them at all. Instead, you should have
shaved up some pure white soap, dissolved It In hot water and added
enough to the water in the tub to
make a strong suds. If, as you say,
'    Willie's flannels    were    so  soiled,    you

water, adding more as it cooks, until tt
becomes a clear, soft jelly. 'J hen bottle
it and keep some place where it will
not  freeze and harden."
"Sure, ma'am, but it sounds a quare
way to wash, but I'll he Iryin' il next
wake. Like the blankets, now, do yez
be just eleanin' them without washin',
"Well, Bridget, you can use hotter
water for blankets, but you must not
rub them. Just sop them up and down
in a tub half lull of strong soapsuds,
and two or three tablespoonfuls of dissolved borax. After you have them weli
washed in one tuliful of suds, put them
in another and repeat the sopping. Then
rinse in a clean water, run through a
wringer that has heen made very loose,
and hang out in the wind and sun tu

do not sag out of shape noi fall to the
ground with their own weight.

their blankets by covering them with a
white muslin aud put-ting them between

"And how's it about the temperychoor
of the blanket waters? Must they be
the same, like as for Willie shirts?"
"Yes, indeed, Bridget. I'm glad you
thought of that, for it is one of thc
most important things about blanket
"Many people nowadays send their
blankets to be cleaned. They certainly
do come home looking just like new,
for they are all combed, you see; but as
It Is very expensive, I'm going to let
you try those nice white ones with the

I'm sure if you do just as I've told you,
they will be just as nice as if 1 sent

might have added a tablespoonful of
borax dissolved In a little hot water
to every four gallons of the water, or
two tablespoonfuls of household ammonia may be used instead.
"You must remember, though. Bridget, when I put in Willie's little pink
and blue flannel suits, to use the borax instead of the ammonia, or those
pretty suits of which ho Is so proud
will  be all  faded.
"Then you should nor have used a
board at all, for nothing thickens

you should have shaken the garments
out well to get rid of as much dust

Rub just as little as you can and get
the flannels out of the water as quickly as possible.
"You can souse them through two or
three suds, if you must, and then
through clear water, With a little bluing

"Another thing, Bridget, never use a
yellow soap on flannels, for the resin

you might make a soap jelly and keep

The Housemothers in Weekly Conference
1AM a Tennesseesn. and I have always
been accustomed to the lavish table of
the Southerner of comfortable circumstances. Since I have kept house in Iowa,
as a married woman, und paid cash for
everything, I find 1 huve to live very differently from what was then my habit. For
example, I think one hot bread ut a meal "a
decent sufficiency/1 and my Tennessee visitors think I huve "grown to be a veritable
Yankee." . am trying to bear up under the
dreadful charge, and hope to live it down in
What I have come to you ifbout Is my
table expenses, My husband gives me $9 a
week for tiie table alone. On that I feed my
husband, two children (IS und 6 years old),
a maid and myself, and have my father
with   us  always   for   breakfast.
Our breakfast consists of coffee, a cereal
and cream and some kind of cakes and
waffles. For dinner���and I am so fortunate
as to have my husband come home to this
meal���wa have meat, two vegetables and
either a salad or dessert. Our supper consists of meat, potatoes and some hot dish,
BUch  as celery   loaf,   fried  mush,   etc.
I have never bought groceries in large
quantities, but 1 am beginning to believe
that it Is the best way. When one keeps
house on an allowance it is Impossible, for
me, at hast, to buy staples by wholesale. I
am u little discouraged trying to come out
Would you kindly tell me If you consider
nie extravagant, and what you think of buying things in quantities?
A DISCIPLH  (Koi'kuK. Iowa)
So far from thinking you extravagant,
J consider that you do wonderfully well
to feed five people and what may he
reckoned as a third of an adult, on your
allowance. Your menu for one day
shows that they are not underfed. You
are a good manager to give them meat
twice   a   day   without   exceeding   your
Now for the gist of your lelter. Tt
cannot be denied that It is economical���
in the long run���to do one's purch' sing
by wholesale, when the purse ls long
too. To advise a housekeeper who must
keep her table expenses within $r> or $10
a week to lay In flour by the barrel,
and sugar by the hundred weight, and
butter by the firkin, is more than absurd.    It is unkind and disheartening.
Thirty-odd years ago. during a residence of some years abroad, [ kept
house in Paris and in Rome, and stored
up much wisdom of a practical type
which has gtOOd me in good stead since.
Apartment life was almost unknown In
America at that date. When I found
in my pretty suite of rooms in Paris,
fitted up for family use, no storeroom���
not so much as a bin for vegetables, or
fruit by the quantity���I was dismayed.
A dear friend who wus living abroad
to educate her children came to my
help. From her I gathered one secret
of culinary und economic successes of
the French housemother of r oderate
means. She buys from day to day just
What she means to use within the next
twenty-four hours. At the end of that
time not a morsel of food is left in kitchen or cupboard, and not a crumb has
been wasted. There is no opportunity
for pilfering, for the mistress can account for every  bit and  sup.
1 have said but lately that it Is comparatively easy for a woman to keep
down running expenses if she does her
own work. The economy of wholesale
purchasing is obvious in her case, supposing always that she can raise the
money for the original outlay without
pinching it out of her allowance a dime
at a time. She will not throw half-a-
dozen potatoes into the garbage pail
"because there is a barrel of them in the
cellar"���as a Milesian cook pleaded as
her excuse for a similar act when her
mistress chanced to espy -the discarded
potatoes. Her hand is no heavier with
butter for the thought of tbe pot of it,
bought directly from a farmer at Ave
cents a pound less than she could buy
It from the corner grocery. She does
not burn bread-crusts in tlie stove because of the barrel of flour laid in
when flour was down, or���as I caught a
cook in 'lhe act of doing���kindle the
morning fire with a saiuerful of sugar.
"Sure, an' it's a dale safer nor karri-
sene!" was her explanation of the astounding performance, "There is tbem
What makes no bones o' pour ���' a cupful
of lie on the lire of a niorniu'."
Your maid of all���or of any���work may
be depended upon to eut, or in some
manner to make way with more foodstuffs than any member of your family
proper, a growing boy not excepted. She
Is. invariably, "a light eater." according to her own showing. But accept
witli what philosophy you can summon
to your aid the fact that nobody except your  very  own  self  will care  for
your Interests wisely and well.
In brief, then, so long as you must
furnish your table upon an allowance
that just suffices to do the work by the
exercise, on your part, of watchful, Ingenious management, buy stores in
small quantities, continuing your practice of cash payment. To pay as you
go may pare down your resources closely, but the habit addeth no sorrow
A New Use for Stocking Tops
As I have had many helpful .suggestions
from your Corner, I hereby pass one on to
lhe next member who has little ones to
dress and  no money to throw away.
My sister Writes to me that she makes
the "dandiest"  drawers for her little girl
out nf stocking tops. Cut the stocking legs
down to the length of the Bcut and sew
th-.ni together, Then open them on each
hide and put a band on* the front and
the buck. Just as the knitted drawers one
buys at the shops are made. They should
come uo lower than the knee. The long
stockings are drawn over the drawers, and,
behold! all Is snug from toes to waist.
The above suggestion is from a mother
whose means are ample, but who wisely
considers thrift a virtue and wastefulness a
sin. It may help some mother who is limited as to means and clever with her needle.
L. S. V. (Irving Park, 111.).
As the cold weather is not many
months off, when knitted underwear
will be needeu, the prudent mother
will do well in laying aside stockings
that are sound as to the legs and worn
in the feet. When heels and toes have
become a mass of darns, the hose are
not pleasant wearing, and even thrifty
women consign them to the rag-bag.
Here is a new use for them. If the
grown women of the family wear silk
stockings, they may be utilized thus
and form dainty garments which could
not be bought new for $2 and %\\ apiece.
Wants Clematis Roots
T have noticed several requests for a
remedy for bedbugs, I have found that car-
bulb; acid and turpentine are an effective
preventive. To 2Q rents' worth ot the add
add E cents'  worth of turpentine.
A snort 'hue ago we purchased our home
and moved Into It last spring. Not having
dreamed of such a horror, you amy imagine
that we were distressed beyond expression to
find the place almost ready to walk away by
While such a protection undoubtedly
saves ice, it does not save food as well,
which Is, a,fter all, the ralson d'etre of
a refrigerator.
Few women need to be told to always
keep the doors tight shut, but not every
one realizes tbo absolute importance of
keeping a strainer over the water outlet
on the inside. This not merely prevents
the escape of cold air, but does away
with the possibility of Insects creeping
Up the drain pipe.
This matter of Insects, ants, snails and
so forth ln a refrigerator is a serious
one. Theoretically. It should be Impossible; but practically, where maids are
constantly changing and careless and
mistresses are neglectful of the overseeing eye, horrible aro the results.
Absolute cleanliness is Imperative. It
should be cleaned twice a week, oftener
if possible. Everything must be taken
out und given a thorough washing and
then wiped perfectly dry. In most
places where market days are observed,
Wednesday and Saturday are an excellent time for this overhauling before thu
new supplies are put In.
Contrary to the usual belief that the
best way to clean a refrigerator is to
use boiling water, plain or mixed with
soda, cold water and ammonia is preferable, as the hot water, even with tho
greatest care, rots the wood. Bay particular attention to the druln pipe, running a flexible wire through It every
cleaning day.
Another precaution against ants��� ���
which, If once allowed to get In, aro almost impossible to eradicate���Is to stand
the legs of a refrigerator or vegetable
safe in cups filled with water. That insects will not cross. This is a fact well
understood in tropical countries and
should be better known here.
Never put warm foods into a refrigerator, or moisture and obnoxious odors
are sure to abound. Keep all food tightly covered, moreover, especially milk,
butter ana eggs, which quickly absorb
Impurities. There are refrigerators
guaranteed odorless, but lids are a wise
precaution,  nevertheless.

Itself, "they" were so plentiful. I used the
quantity of Ingredients designated zealously. It is now two weeks since we have seen

a great deal of hard work with the

constant cure are required to cleanse the
premises thoroughly. I ulso burned sulphur

very   good   gluten   bread.
Mrs. M. A. It, (Minneapolis),
You have set a bard task for me. I
know the caprices of the sufferer's appetite. Your mention of gluten bread
brings back to me the anxious endeavor
of months to induce a beloved invalid
to learn to like this, the only bread she
wns allowed to cat. Sweets of all kinds
were forbidden, and most fruits. In
the case I speak of we found junket,
sightly sweetened and flavored with vanilla; loppered milk, cottage cheese,
eaten with cream, acceptable substitutes
for the desserts enjoyed by well people. We toasted the gluten bread and
made of It baked cream toast, which
was a degree less distasteful titan the
plain bread.
WITH the fashion of the da* to
lay ull our refrigerator woes
on the grasping ice dealer, few
women have the judicial
trend of mind that Will permit even a
tiny peep at the -other Bide. Are housekeepers never at fault when ice molts
unconscionably soon, aud Sunday's
chickens must he taken out of the refrigerator in the "wee sma' hours" to
be treated lo copious washings with
vinegar and  water?
It is much easier to rail at under-
weighing and overcharging of dealers
than to see to it that nothing warm is
ever put into the refrigerator; that it
stands in exactly the right place to insure the least  w ste  in  ice.
In the lirst place, there is an art in
buying a refrigerator. Those of us who
must put up with the old-fashioned ones
that have seen years of service must
learn to make the most of them; but
when the happy hour comes that a new
one Is to be purchased, It is well to be
forearmed with a slight knowledge of
the subject.
Now, as a refrigerator is a distinctly
practical article of housefurnishing, use,
and not looks, is the first consideration.
Most women, so far as appearance is
concerned, would unhesltai ugly declare for white enamel cases and sanitary, glass Shelves; but, alas! icemen,
with many a hundred-pound lamp to
drop in the course of a day, are node,
too gentle in the process, and the mostx
glistening enamel has a fashion of
cracking, White glass becomes exceedingly brittle with cold. So, It is safer.
on the whole, to fall back on a good
zinc-lined refrigerator, with a covering
of soft wood that will not warp. Though
the zinc may corrode in time, It is not
dangerous to the food contained within
it, as many believe.
See to it also that the Ice compartment may be tilled from the front, Instead of the top, for tbe constant strain
of huge pieces of ice being dropped to a
shelf will soon loosen . ie parts; moreover, the man who brings the ice is entitled to some consideration, nnd he
finds shoving of his wares much easier
than lifting it to the top of a refrigerator nnd then carefully letting it drop.
The ice chest, so long in favor, while
cheaper to buy and more economical
in the running than the refrigerator���
since with less space co cover it Is
colder on less ice than any other kind
���is not so convenknt. It has no circulation ln the flrst place, which
means quicker mustiness, and, secondly, two lids to lift and every shelf to
be taken out each time Ice la put in is
distinctly a trial. The newer chests,
however, have a separate compartment for ice, which is a decided improvement,
Then see to It that there Is a drain
pipe instead of a tank: the former allows tree clreulatirr of cold, dry air
through every compartment, while
the latter causes a certi In dampness.
The light, nickel-plated woven wire
shelves are more easily cleaned and
permit freer circulation of air than
any other kind, either galvanized
iron or wood. The latter absorb food
After a refrigerator is bought its
disposal must he carefu'ly considered.
The ideal spot for it *s undoubtedly
a little-used outer kitchen that Is easy
of access.   Tn default of that, have It
In  the kitchen proper.
"Ah, but the heat!" some one remonstrates. A good refrigerator
properly packed with a dead air space
should not be affected by heat. Even
so, if the ice should melt a little more
rapidly than you like, it is far better
than to keep It in th*. cellar to be Injured by dampness or In the open air
���even though under a roof���where it
is exposed to the w.ather. Whatever
the chosen place, see to It that the refrigerator stands perfectly level.
In filling a new refrigerator see that
from twelve to twenty-four hours elapse
after lhe ice has been put In before
using. Natural, rather than artificial,
ice produces greater cold; but whichever
Is used, It Is a matter of economy to
keep the compartment well filled. As it
molts about a third of its capucity daily,
it is cheaper to buy large pieces several
times a week than small chunks every
Ice should always bo ..shed before It
ls put in. and, oontrnry to the general
belief, should not he covered with newspaper, as the cold air cannot circulate.
The surest way never to have warm
dishes put in a refrigerator is to Invesl
In a vegetable or meat safe. The housekeeper who has always kept her hoi
soups, meats and desserts standing
round till they are cool, in constant
danger of flies and dust, will never
know true comfort until she indulges in
one  of   these   useful   contrivances.
They nre very simple in construction;
indeed, so simple that they may easily
be home-made, by any one with a
knack at carpentry. They are nothing
more than a plain wooden frame tilled
with wire netting and furnished with
shelves and a door. Sometimes they are
double, with an upper and lower compartment, and are made either to hang
or stand. The latter are found more
convenient,  as a  rule.
An ingenious bit of house-carpentering, planned and executed for a bit of a
house where room was v4, a high

was hidden away under a trap-door in
