The location for a raspherry  plantation is one of the most important points to be considered. Here  on the coast we have a wonderful  range of climate conditions, ranging from sea level to elevations of  hundreds of feet. The most favorable districts for raspberries, however, are the Fraser Valley from  Chilliwack west to the coast, the  MisBion-Hatzic districts and the bottom lands adjeining them. Sandy  and silt loams with sufficient rainfall to provide plenty of moisture are  best adapted to raspberry culturo.  In the districts named canes frequently reach a height of twelve feet.  The yield per acre depends altoge*  ther on the quality of the soil, the  cultivation and the care given the  plantation. Five hundred crates an  acre is about the average, but as high  as seven and eight hundred are sometimes obtained. In selecting a site,  however, it is advisable to get near  some good sized town, where berries  may be sold locally    v  The leading varieties grown In  this district are the Antwerp and the  Cuthbert. The Antwerp is undoubtedly the best yielder, and ripens a-  bout three days earlier than the  Cuthbert. If picked at exactly the  right time, when it is turning red, it  ships well, but if allowed to get ripe  Immediately falls down and goes to  mush. It is inferior as a; canning,  preserving or dessert berry, as it is  almost  without  flavor.  There are several varieties which  are spoken well of, such as the Marlboro and Superlative. Both do well  in this district. The one variety,  however, which has proven its worth  as a producer, as a dessert, a canning, and a shipping berry, both in  this and the Puyallup districts is the  Cuthbert. It has the delicious sweet  raspberry flavor, and is strong in tissue and fibre, making it the best shipper. I have twenty-seven acres of ���������  full bearing Cuthbert canes and find  them most satisfactory.  Climatic  conditions  in  the  lower  mainland are ideal for raspberry cul  ture. Raspberries require plenty of  rain and ^et it right up to picking  time when we usually have good,  dry weather which is during the  month of July. 1916 was however,  an exception, as it rained nearly  every day during picking season  This was the only bad picking season  we have known for years.  In setting out a plantation no rule  can be laid down which is applicable  to all locations. On bottom lands  of this district we plant rows nine  feet apart and two feet in the rows.  On the bench lands, however, where  the growth is not so vigorous, the  rows might be seven or eight feet a-  part It is no mistake to leave plenty of room between the rows. The  berries ripen better, and dry off more  quickly in the morning after a heavy  dew or rain.  There are many methods of culture  used. The most popular system in  this district, however, is the matted row, keeping the canes not less  than twelve feet apart, and the row  not over sixteen inches wide. Posts  are sot in the ground thirty feet a-  part in the rows. A cross piece Ib  spiked to each post four feet from  the ground to which wires are attached on each side of the row. All  canes are kept between the wires.  In the fall or spring the old canes  are cleaned out and the new canes  tied in groups of three or four (equally divided) to the wires on each side  This makes picking easier, and keeps  the fruiting canes from getting.mixed with the new canes. The tops  are cut back about five or six inches  from the ground. There are differences in opinion as to the best  time to do this. To form an intelligent conclusion one should first  study the nature of the plant, and assist nature instead of resisting nature  in order to get the best results.  The more erect the canes grow  (with no secondary causes influencing them to grow in an inclining position during the current years growth) the less chance there will be to  produce laterals. Under natural  conditions the cane fruits produce  without laterals. It is unnatural for  them to do so   in   Ideal   conditions.  How to Leave Canada  His Excellency the Governor Gon-  cral in Council undor and by virtue  of tho provisions of Section 0 of the  War Mensures Act, and of any other  powor in him roslding, is pleased co  make and doth hereby make'the following Regulations concerning the  doparturo out of Canada of male persons who are liable to or capable of  national servico or military or other  character: .  1.

Roads Getting Better  Much work is being done on the  roads of the district this past week  or ten days, and they are now getting into .good shape.  The Hatzic Dewdney road has been  attended to and the little holes filled  up with gravel. The road is now  in good shape and all that is required is a little oil on the road as  far as Hatzic; it would mean prosperity for the fruit growers and keep  the luscious fruit along Hatzio  front road free from the ever flying dust. The small fruit farms a-  long this road require this protection  Fruit prospects look good but the  fine dust will not add to the value of  the fruit when it comes to shipping it  to the prairie markets.  Word has been received by tho  Mission Auto Club that the road'to  the Stave Falls bridgo will be put in  better shape shortly. It is quite passable, but you know it might be better with very little expense.  The Huntingdon-Riverside road is  now much better shape than it  was a week ago. Work has boen going on filling in the holes and ruts.  Both the Yale Road and the Dewdney Trunk road 'ere in good shape  to the coast; and the Chilliwack  road in particular good shape.  There was report current this week  that Washington Street was to be  given its annual bath very shortly.  PERSONALS  Mr. Muines has gone back to the  General  Hospital in Vancouver.

Cane:!  without hi torn Is are, more, easily  . managed. They produce larger  leaves larger buds, hence larger and  bettor fruit, which is the object, desired.   "  Harvesting  The picking of tlie crop usually  begins about July 1st, and lasts a-  ' bout four-'woeks. As fur as 'possblc  pickors are engaged several months  in advance of tho picking season.  Summer cottages, 'mattresses, stoves,  camp cooking utensils, and fuel are  provided. Women and school children do the picking. It requires ten  good pickers an acre, or a larger num  ber of indifferent pickers.  This year we arc faced with an  acute labor situation. The women's  organizations in Vancouver and  .Westminster arc, however, emulating tho example of the women of  England and Franco, and are arranging to come to the rescue by  picking berries and working on the  land  until  such   times  as  labor con  ditions right themselves. The prices  we expect to pay for picking this season will be the highest ever paid for  picking raspberries in Canada or the  United States, fifty cents for picking  fifteen pounds of berries.  Pickers are provided with a cup-  carrier attached to the waist. Berries are picked into the shipping cup  When full this is transferred1 to* the  carrier which holds half a crate,  this when full is taken to the packing house where the picker's talley  card is punched for the number of  cups brought in. Overseers are  placed in charge of twenty-five to  fifty pickers, whose duty it is to see  that each picker picks her row clean  and finishes it before going to another- row. The berries in the pack-  c ing house are inspected by experienced women, graded according to their  condition and shipped, to their various  destinations.  If it is purposed'going into raspberry growing on a large scale, say,  over three acres, 1 would advise got-  ing into the large raspberry producing districts. A great many of the  berries have to be shipped to distant  provinces in refrigerator cars under  ice to arrive with any degree of safety. This can only be clone through  co-operation.  Marketing  The most serious problem ��������� facing  the grower is the marketing of his  crop profitably. In this district,  when a limited amount of berries  were produced the demand was keen  and prices good. The berries were'  sold direct to the retailer and consumer. Each grower had his private trade at good prices and labor  was reasonable and plentiful. These  favorable conditions naturally1 led  to greater production. Many larger  plantations were set out New  growers came to the district attracted by the apparent'easy money, and  by the energetic real estate agents,  These new mdn had not the private  trade nor the experience of the pioneer growers.  With the increased production  growers began encroaching on each  other's private trade, and then consigning large quantities to commission houses without any knowledge  of the market conditions in the towns  to which they were consigned. Tlie  natual result of this was low prices,  in some cases no returns at all. Frequently the grower was billed back  w.th the express charges on the goods  he had lost entirely. This led to  m-iny growers going out of busiress.  Other new growers came in took,  their places, and the same state of  affairs  went  on.  In   ifl'l?.   the   organization   known  as the "Fraser Valley Growers" Avas  formed with the object of handling  and controlling all the raspbcrries'in  Ihe surrounding districts The prices  nulled by l.he grower's were satisfactory, but not as good as should have  been obtained, owing to the fact that  much^ol' the out put of'the district  when "in oxpi'ess shipments to -commission houses, coming into- direct  eonipeifilion with car-load lots. In  several instances'so many went out  by express (hat Ihe cars had to \>'e  !k id over until (.lu; next day to get a  loul. Other cars went out light;  loaded bringing the cost of transportation and icing much liighei than it  she.)Id have beon.  The season jf '} !'> 1 G was disastrous  owing to (ho incessant rain during  il:is picking season. About thirteen  curs were shipped, but tho berries  were full of water and would not  stand up to roach the distant markets. They had to be sold on the  nearby markets, which were consequently glutted. The prices realized  were to some unsatisfactory, while  others considered themsolvoa fortunate in getting anything above the  cost of crate and picking. The canneries were both congested, and there  was absolutely no outlet for the berries.  During the season of 1917 the  IVlission-Hatzic districts expect to  ship thirty or forty cars of raspberries. These will doubtless be controlled by the "Fraser Valloy Growers," although there is yet much to  be desired in its support from tho  district, which is absolutely necessary to success.  During the last twenty-five years  this district has seen many attempts  at organization. Each attempt usually lasts about two years and then  disbanads. In about a year's it starts  over the same ground again.  The principal reasons for dissatisfaction are that,tho shipper Avho refuses to join any association can always get a little more for his berries  than the organization can net its  members. He can sell direct to the  retailer and consumer, Avhere the organization must, in order to dispose  ot large quantities, use the established channels of business, viz., to  the broker who sells to the wholesale houses, the Aviioesale houses to  the retailer, and the retailer, to tho  consumer. The independent shipper can, therefore, sell for less  money and yet receive more for his  berries than can the organization, as  lie has only one commission to pay.  What would be the result to the  same independent shipper if the association did not watch and regulate  the supply for each market? The  result would be, that within three  forty to fifty thousand crates would  bo dumped onto the market without  any systematic or intelligent distribution. This would mean disaster to the industry, and to the independent shipper as well. _^  If we note the history of the most  successful co-operative organizations it will be found that they  have all had their troubles and made  mistakes in some Avay. All have  passed through the same conditions  of dissatisfaction, members breaking away and mistakes in niange-  nieut. The only organizations, however, which have attained any degree  '>'.' perfection or.success, are the ones  who have stuck to it. Every one  learns by experience, and it is foolish to throw away two or three year's  experience. This has cost money  and is valuable, even though mistakes have been made.  ' it- is recognized by all intelligent  people- that co-operation is the only  system whereby the fruit industry  has any reasonable hope of success in  the future. The only way to have a  successful organization is to elect  the best men in the district as directors and officers, then have confidence in them and give them a  chance to make good by giving them  your whole hearted and. loyal sup-  post.-- M.

This is the question that just, now  is engaging, the attention of. ���������many  familiar with the results already  achieved and which indicate tlie  tremendous possibilities of this new-  ly-discoverel- weapon of the air.  What could have been accomplished  had fhcAinerican government departed from its policy of decrying naval  aviation . and encouaged Admiral  Fisi'eto perfect his invention, can  readily be realized in view of the  service the torpedo-plane has rendered both'contestants .in the present struggle. And now that, the  eyes of the world are turned  America, from whoso Yankee, ingenuity if is expected will issue the  death knoll of.the submarine menace  it seems more than probable that  this must come through tho medium  of .ihe air!  Naval Attack Advocated  Tho advisability of a combined allied naval attack on the German  coast has boon siig_ge.sl.cd nnd even  advocated,'and with the armies, of  the entente and the Central powers  seemingly deadlocked, it has appeared a most feasible way of reaching  the heart of Genuany. But, as has  been pointed out the loss of lire, and  ships would, be enormous, even in  the event of victory, and the allies  cannot afford such a costly defeat.  But an attack with airplanes equipped with forpedoos, oven though unsuccessful   would   not.   seriously   em-  .harrass tlioin.  Speeds Towards Prey  The torpedo-plane, as it is called  by admiral Fiske, Is launched from  the land or the deck of a ship, and  after rising some 6,0,00 feet stays at  that elevation until its target is  sighted. Then it rapidly descends at  a precipitous angle.  It approaches as near as l,f)00.  yards. The interval is augumented  in proportion to the offensive powers  of its antagonist. When about  twenty-feet above the water the torpedo when it is pointed directly at  the target is released. It automatically takes a certain depth and travel's toward its. prey at a speed    of  some  thirty^five  miles an  hour.     It  ----- .  if before  carries   explosives   powerful   enough .to_the_ "we^po^it^��������� brtore  HAPPILY WEDDED  to blow up the biggest battleship  Simply stated, the torpedo-plane  is nothing more than an airplane  equipped to carry and release a torpedo similiar to those. carried by  submarines. But unlike the submarine, which is restricted to the  sea, it is equally effective wherever  a body of water can be found for it  to travel in. No harbor, however  guarded from sea approach, is immune to it unless well protected from  air attack.  Proved a Success  It is a matter, of astonishment that  while this formidable weapon was  quickly recognized by other nations  the United States navy department  did not appreciate it. The torpedo-  plane was used by Lieut. Boyle of  the British navy to sink four Turkish \essls in the Sea of Mai mora  and when experimentally tested by  Capt Guidoni of the Italian navy upon the standard naval target, 3,000  yards distant, it made nine hits out  of a possible ten.  "On May 2, the British admirality announced the sinking of the steamer  Gena, 2.784 tons, off Aldeburgh  (Suffolk, England), by a torpedo  discharged from a German seaplane, in view of these evidences of  another American invention refused  here that has made good abroad, it  cannot be wondered that our government has been criticized for its shortsightedness. The submarine, the  telescope gun sight (which has made  modern 'naval gunnery possible) and  the machine gun, although invented  in the United States, were first used  by other nations,      ,  Recent dispatches from the front  tell of the success of the British airmen operating over Zeebrugge.  Although furiously attacked by antiaircraft guns- and German planes,  they have been able to map the entire Ger. defences on the Bel. coast.  What is more, they have changed  these maps as the Germans have'  changed their defenses.,,The turning of a spadeful of earth, a trowel  of cement added to a bastion along  the coast cannot be done without a  note appearing a day or two later upon the long chart which adorns the  record office of this particular--squadron.'

IJombai'ded l'Yoni Above  bet us imaglno a great fleet made  up of tlie most .powerful vessels of  Great Britain, France Russia, Japan  nlid the United States. Upon these  warships are torpedo-planes, a largo  number of them. Under cover of a  murky day they are taken fo a point  just beyond the range of the Heligo-  hiiid guns. At a signal they leave  the battleships and ascend six thousand feet or more. By careful calculations they approach within two  miles of tho Island, descend and discharge their torpedoes, each of which  is .iiil'ficienl, to blow up a battleship.  ' The defenders will undoubtedly bo  aware of the approach and their  huge guns will bark, while from the  air a. counter attack will be discharged. Some of. the .torpedo-  planes will undoubtedly bo hit,, but  many will attain their objective.  Suppose'this maneuver is repeated  several times. It'is improbable that  the 24 0-foot wall, although sixteen  feet thick will long withstand tho  tremendous destructive force of the  torpedoes. l__ ___ ^^  ""���������"w\Voul(l Complete' Blockade  Eventually the defences of one  side of the island will be rendered  harmless by the undermining, process. The great guns of the battleships can then be brought into play  and in time will reduce    the    island  the  Kaiser undertook its development.  With this accomplished, the blockade  of Germany will be complete and the  most dangerous of the submarine  bases distroyed.  The Kiel canal would in the same  manner be reduced and the landing  of a huge army made possible. In  attacking the Keil canal, it is pointed out, the torpedoes would release  great masses of earth like those,that  closed the Panama canal at the Cul-  ebra cut and thus sever the jugular  vein of the German navay.  Admiral Fiske's bold conception  is not a dream, but a potent reality.  Whether or not the wooden ship  campaign inauguated by the United  States will offset tho activities of the  submarines is yet to be determined.  But should its energies be directed to  the project'hero outlined, it is not to  much to assume, in view of tho evidences,,'offered, that success, would  hot be beyond the limits of probability.-  OKICGOX.& PORTLAND KAJLKOAD  CO .OKA NT LANDS  Title to same rovested in United  States by Act of Congress dated June  9, - U 916.
