Tne 'Senatoi  was acompanied b,y the secretary oi  the Puyall.up Sumner Canning Co, Mi  Corbaley, of Seattle. The visitors  j were here to look over the country  and the prospects of the district as  a small fruit centre.  They were met in Vancouver by  Mr. W. J. Mianson , president of the  Fruit and Mercantile Exchange and  the Farmer's Cold Storage Co., Ltd..  and were driven through the Fraser  Valley to Mission City, where tlva>  were met and welcomed by Reeve J.  A. Catherwood and the council anc  were tendered luncheon at the Hotel  Mission, as the guests oTthc Municipality.  in tne afternoon tho visitors vme  driven througii tae smail irtiv. districts and ait'-Tuardis inspected' cm  new cold storage plant being dected  at Hatzic. 'j'he Senator bristly addressed the Directors of the Fruit &  Mercantile Exchange at their heac  ollice at Hatzic. lie complimented the  Directors upon the business like manner in which they were carrying on  their undertaking hero. "You men are  doing a very wise thing in erecting a  cold .storage plant," he remarked  "and I can assure you that you are  on the right track. Even if your build  ing is not used for a pound of fruit  it will always stand as an insurance  to the small fruit industry of this  community." He urged the necessity  of a loyal co-operation of the fruit  growers towards the Association and  commented upon the enthusiasm thai  had been shown by the fruit growers  he had met while here.  During his drive througii the district Mr. Paulharnus was greatly Impressed with the possibilities for  small fruitis'. "You have a remarkable-  country" ho said, " and-you grow excellent raspberries nnd blackberries  Loganberries thrown here are exceptionally fine," and he remarked upon  (he fine appearances of the plantations that were visited.  COLD STOKA.U-.ti WjANT  NEAKL* COMPLETE!!  Work is being rushed at the Farmers' Cold Storage Company's building at Hatzic now reaching completion, it is expected that the plant will  jbe in running order by the 15th of  June. This plant when completed will  J be the most up to date cold storage  building on the Pacific coast. The  berry growers of the Fraser Valley-  are very fortunate in having such excellent facilities to insure them a-  gainst loss and the possibilities of an  unprofitable market.  The  construction   of   the  building  throughout is of the very best material and workmanship and the direc-  torsof the above company    must be  congratulated upon their wise movi  in erecting this plant. The machinery  is modern and up to dale, and irtaw1 liable of taking care of 1.000 tons o'  fruit.   The   present   capacit.v   of   tlir  building when completed \\ill prev'r!'  for 700 tons of berries   The ru'.sidi;  walls are constructed of cement anf  tile   and   the  machinery   buiUli'ig  if  nf sheet iron.

Bees like all  live stock need attention, and���������often  because this attention is small it is  neglected. The many minor details  which go to make up'success in getting maximum honey yields cannot,  be obtained by reading, nor can information be bought with the apiary. A  small beginning is strongly advised  and as the novice grows in experience  the colonies may be increased. The  care of bees is not suited to all people, and unless a person has a special  aptitude or inclination that way, he  should not branch out into this line.  To carry on bee-keeping with interest  and profit requires the intimate study  of the bees and a knowledge of their  needs. We often hear the expression  "the busy bee"- but unless we busy  ourselves <with the_ bees, we cannot  hope for success.    '  Beekeeping is conducted to a small  extent at the Dominion Experimental-  Station, Invermere, B. C. A few.colonies are kept and accurate data collected annually, on the various methods of wintering summer care and  management, and !other experimental work in connection with beos. A  short resume of the work of the past  year will no doubt be of interest,  not only to the .prospective beekeeper  but to those already engaged in the  business  The apiary numbered ten colonies  in the fall'of 1918, two colonies  were wintered in the cellar, four in a  cellar," four in' a "trench, two in a  double wintering case,- and. two in  single wintering-cases. The bees  wintered outside proved by far the  strongest in the spring, while three  of the colonies wintered in.ihe trench  died as the result of too much moisture,' From the seven colonics that  were left 88 5 pounds of extract honey was produced, or an average of  12(5.4 pounds per colony. The strongest colony producing in the season  ���������234 pounds of extracted honey. This  honey was sold at thirty-three cents  a pound and for the convenience ol  the customers was put up in five  pound retainers which sold tit on-*  dollar and severity-live cents. The total value of extracted hoiiey was two  hundred and ninety-two dollars and  seventy-two, or the average value per  colony being forty-onf do i.-irs and  seventy-two cents. The number of  colonies was'also increased from seven to eleven, each col my bo'iig valued at seven dollars, (not ini-ncling  fcfve). In September one hundred  and eighty pounds of su-^ar syrup was  fed valued .it twenty-three dollars  and forty Cents. The bees were not  allowed to swarm during the season  about one day a week b^ing required  to care for the bees from April to  October.-���������Experimental Farm Notes.

Much attention has been given in  recent years to the question of manufacturing alcohol  within the  empire  for use as'motor spirit.    In the current number of the  Bulletin  of the  Imperial  Institute  the  possibility  of  utilizing the mowra flowers of India  for the purpose is discussed.    These  flovyers   possess   thick,   juicy   petals,  rich in sugar.    They are used by the  natives  for  foodstuff,  and especially  for the preparation  by   fermentation  of an alcoholic liquor called daru or  mowra spirit. A single tree will yield  as   much   ast   wo   or   three  hundred  pounds of flowers in a year. The tree  produces a valuable oil-seed, which is  exported in fairly large quantities to  Europe.     During the war the flowers  were used in India for the production  of acetone,  the yield said to  ho ten  times as much ast hat obtained by (lis  tilling wood,  which     is    the    usual  source   of t this   substance.    The   demand for 'acetone in   India in  peace  times, however,  is not    great,    and  large qualities of the flowers would  be available for the manufacture of  alcohol, and would appear to  be an  exceptionally cheap source of this material as the yield is high compared  with   that   from, potatoes  and . other  materials   commonly   used  about   90  gallons of 9 5 per cent, alcohol being  obtainable   from   one   ton   of   dried  flowers.    It has been estimated that  in  the  Hyderabad  state  alone  there  are already sujeient mowra trees for  the production of 700,000 gallons of  spirit per annum, in addition to that  necessary for the local liquor requirements.  It is suggested that the must profitable way of: utilizing the flowers  would probably be as a source of  mixed motor spirit of the "natalite'  type for use in India. That motor  spirit can be produced on a manufacturing scale in India from Mowra  flowers has already been demonstrated, and it is stated that running  trials with the spirit proved satisfactory.

He is  a puzale'. . 1 once heard of a man who  made a life's business of going to  school. According to the account V  heard of him, he had degrees- upon  dagrees; he knew foreign and dead  languages galore; he knew the history of every ancient country that ever  existed; he knew everything in fact  except things that concern us all in  our every-day life. In short his education defeated the very object'which  it was meant to serve.  ��������� President Wilson has been quoted  as saying that he had a single-track  mind. If so, he is the rarest specimen of his race, because the,rest of  us have- minds of a thousand tracks  and when one of those minds begins  to work it starts-out on'one track  because it can't ride on two at the  same time, but that track is connected with a thousand others and the  stretches are always in working order and all connected with the track  of beginning so there is no way of  knowing which track he will wind up  i on.  , In some cases when a man gets in  a high place in life he becomes renowned fo his wisdom and advocates  great reforms; he advocates them so  fiercely his Course amounts almost to  demagogy; but as lie. prospers and  gains in power he while still advocating such reforms, becomes their  greatest enemy. He rides furiously  on, growing farther each day from'  the path of wisdom and feeling more  contempt for the advice of others;  till the man who was once renowned  for his great wisdom has become less  wise and less fit to determine the  destinies of others than tho man who  sweeps the streets.  Solomon was supposed to be tho  greatest specimen of human wisdom;  yet' with all his worldly wisdom ho  became an idolator and worshipped  gods of wood and stone. As a rule  he was exceedingly extravagant, and  under him his people-.grew poorer. He  lived so out of harmony with his  God that that he declared himself to  be weary of life. Such is the strange  and mysterious psychological makeup of man. The greatest of human  wisdom and the greatest of human  folly standing side by 'side and both  combined in one human mind.

CIGAR    FACTORY  WILBERG.ft VVCLZ.  props  CONTROL OF SWAKMIXG  (Experimental Farm Notes)  ������warming is the bees' natural  method of increase, and the instinct  to swarm iis particularly strong under  the extremely favourable conditions  for bee activity of the Canadian  spring and' sumrmer.  The uncertainty of swarming, the  loss of lioney following the division  of the working force of the colony,  the possibility of swarms escaping,  and the difficulty in preventing  swarming in many parts of Canada  without considerable labour, all make  the control of swarming riuifc the  greatest problem in bee management.  To encourage work in the hive and  to discourage the desire to swarm,  plenty of room, both in the brood  chamber and in the super, and lyrge  entrances should be given to all colonies as soon as conditions are favorable, but these measures will not always be enough to prevent -jwarming in manyplaces, especially in the  north.  If the apiary can be watched all  day, it is a good plan to clip flu  queen's wings at fruit bloom time.  When the colony swarms, remove  the hive to a new stand place on the  old stand an empty hive, to which the  swarm will r.eturn, the queen having  been meanwhile picked up and placed in a cage in the new hiv.a. The  field bees will join the swarm and  the parent colony will be so much  weakened by their los.^ that it i.-;  unlikely  to  swarm  again.  Where the apiary cannot be washed, the plan of preventing swarmim;  by examining every brood comb in  every colony every week, and destroying all the queen cells is very laborious and not always effective. A  simpler plan is to remove the queen  at the? beginning of the clover honey  flow, and eight or nine clays later,  destroy all the queen cells but one  or destroy all and give a ripe cell of  select parentage. Hi  this  way  a  young queen is obtained which will  not swarm and. besides, will be more  prolific in,the fall and next year than  the old queen, and will be less likely  to swarm next year. This plan, however, causes a certain amount of loaf  ing until the new queen starts layinir  This JoaTing can be much reduced by  introducing the ripe qm-cn cell at the  time the queen is removed, and if this  ���������is done early enough before any pre-  pnraiions for swai.ning have been  started, the bees urn unlikely lo  build further queen cells. Where, how  over one prefers to use the ���������surer  method, only those colonies that ar"  actually preparing to swarm should  be treated, un<\ some means for  quickly ascertaining if a colony j;;  building queen . celbi in pivparai ion  for swarming should he employed.  One of the best of these is to hive  the .brood nest occupy t wo cliainb-.-rB  and then by prying up the upper  chamber, one ''an see at a glance n  the que en cells are being built . a-  'ong the lower edge of the combs in  this chamber.  In many parts of southern Ontario  southern Quebec and similar regions  the desire to swarm is strong only  during (he last two orlhrse week;?  of the lioney (low from clover, and  the separation of queen and brood,  by a quecn excluder, the queen being  put into a lower chamber containing  only empty combs and .foundation,  may be enoungh to fide the colony  over this period. Another good plan  that may be enough to prevent the  Hwarming in this region is to use  two broad chambers and confine the  queen to J. he lower chamber early in  the honey (low, at which time the  combs in tin's chamber usually contain a large number of empty cells.  m a e.ranger, a farmer  wearing bells, remote from death and"  danger, from swords and bombs and  shells.
