At the meeting of  Matsqui council on Saturday a  quest was received from the association for a grant ancl it was do-jilod  that $100 should be given. There  was no exhibition held in "Matsqui  last year, the association cancelling  it on account of war and financial  conditions. '  Philip Jackman, secretary of the  Matsqui Farmer'r. Institute, wrote  making application for the use of the  municipal hall and grounds on July  1  for the annual    picnic and dance  occupation (if  "What is your regular occupat-  YVhat other work can you do  held by the Institute.  The  request  was granted and the council made a  grant of $15 towards the celebration.  It was decided by the council, subject  to equal assistance from the school  board, to underbrush and remove the  windfalls on the hall ' grounds and  burn the rubbish.  Mosquito  Districts  -A report was received from the  provincial executive council stating  that sanction had been given by the  Lieut.-Governor to t he extraordinary  traffic bylaw submitted by t he council. A letter from Premier Oliver's  private secretary stated that he had  received the letter from Matspui requesting definition of the boundaries  cf the mosquito districts. Owing to  the premier's absence in the east the  letter had been referred to the Hon.  E. D. Barrow, who-replied that, having regard to the fact that there is  no legislation on the statute book  dealing with mosquito control, it  therefore appeared to him that he  had no power to take any action  aloi\g tho lines suggested in the  council's letter.  It. F. Hay ward, general manager  of tine Western Canada Power Co.,  wrote that at the request of the municipality the company would move  the transformers at Clayburn on account of the moving of the, muni  cipal gravel plant..  The tender from Edward Nascou,  Aldergrove, offering to purchase SO  acres in section 5, township 13, for  the taxes against the property amounting ao about $4 00 was accepted.  The council confirmed the reeve's  action in awarding the contract for  painting the municipal hall to Nels  Olund for the sum of $135. The contract on the. Mount Lehman road was  awarded to Charles B. Gephart for  the sum of $275.  Councillors Appointed.  Councillor Melander and Councillor Aish were appointed to attend  the session of the board of railway  commissioners, to be field in Vancouver on June 6, in connection ;>itli two  matters.    One is the request for a  $87  EXTRA RUN ON PERRY  Arrangements have been made for  the months of June, July and August  to give an extra run on the Mission-  Mafsqui  ferry.  The ferry will make the usual runt;  and at 6.5 0 p. m. will leave the Mission side, returning leaving Matsqui  side at 7:00 p.in.  This extra run is for week days  only.

There were 12  transports and a cruiser   aloug    and  they were met by 5 destroyers at the  clanger zone.

'JlL.!^l'l.?U..',.Lggr  FRIDAY,  JUNE   7,   19.18  A great day to be remembered  throughout the Dominion of Canada  will be the 22nd 'of June next, when  the man and woman power of the  dominion will be registered. This is  practically what the people.have asked i or. The-former registration did  not appear to be satisfactory but. the  present method will give information  about every person between the age  of JO and GO and sonic information  abo.il. the younger members of the  l'aiuiiy as well. It will be the duty of  everyone to register that day at some  point, of which they will have' due  nonce of some kind.  ���������llie questions which have to have  written answers to appear elsewhere  in this paper and it would be well for  -ail io look them over ancl decide how  they are to be answered correctly.  Hon. Mr. Barrow in reply to tho  Matsqui council states that there is  ^.i' legislation,on the statute books of  theprovince dividing tho districts in-f  to mosquito areas ancl cannot therefore assist the farmers.  ���������If this legislation was promised if  seems strange that our premier did  overlook it.  ing in the house are devoutly wishing  Hi at lie might turn his attention to  iederal' politics so that they would be  rid of him in the province. But.Mr.  Bowser has one object in view. As  member of the government, be labored early ancl late for the benefit of  the people of this province, oO nine h  so in fact, that he suffered in Imaii.h  on account of the work performed.  As leader of the opposition, he is still  desirous of doing wmif he car. io protect the people and to direct as far  as possible in his c.ipacify .beneficial  legislation. Tho L:st session, when  the lull record is known, will be a  tribute to Mr. Bowser and nis labor  in behalf of the people, and notwithstanding the scurrilous attacks of  portions of the press and some of  tho people, Mr. Bowser today is boing  recognized as one of the ablest men  of the province as well as one who  would use his ability for the advancement of the best interests of Uritisli  Columbia.���������Standard-Sentinel.

'' Thanks old chap, its 'fine growing  weather.'  CONTROL OF SWARMING  An exchange whose editor owns a  dog says he paid the city for the necessary jewelry during the past week.  Our sporting editor says that $2 dogs  are luxuries these hard times and  shoud be kept���������even by an editor.  lie up-country papers are all say-  thai the defeated candidate in  [-.vi'.'it   Chilliwack   election   is   a  .���������lis. and will have to take his  medicine.  in  P^  Abraham Lincoln often ised the  expression, "you will find tha heaviest sticks under the best apple  trees." Mr. Lincoln was a practical  piuicsopher and knew more about  humanity than any man in his time.  Far some years past there has been  a certain element in British Columbia  who have blamed everything of a  derogatory character upon Hon. W.  J. Bowser and characterized all that  was low and mean as "Bowserism."  Facts prove substantially the charges  made for or against a public man,  an.vi history is a record that cannot  be denied. Mr. Bowser has been in  public life for a good many years in  British Columbia and during that  time has always been a man who enjoyed hard work and was willing to  accept any responsibility. As a member of the McBride government, holding the portfolio of attorney-general  ho did more than any man over did  in that office to improve the laws of  tiio province and raise the morals of  communities to a higher plane. In the  ;.--. :''iniia:!co of hif, -litty as thes-lead-  uw oilicc-r of tho government, he  :Od no favorites and thereby he  gaiatd the enmity of some people in  hlo own party as well as many in the  apposition.  As premier for a short time he  brought down more constructive legislation than any former premier in  this province in the same period and  much of the prosperity of British Columbia today rests on that legislation.  His personal record is above reproach, ancl although he has little  time for pleasure while in public life,  those with whom he has associated  have always found him genial, comparable ancl upright. The truth of  the matter is, that as leader of the  opposition, he is tho greatest obstaclo  fk::t the present government has. His  farliliarity with the procedure of parliament, his knowledge of proper legislation and his absolute honesty of  purpose have made him a man to fear  by those who would cater more to  power than to legislation that would  benefit the people. Thus it ia that  we find the organs of the government  continually and everlastingly abusing and endeavoring to belittle Mr.  Powser. Nothing wouid suit Premier  Oliver better than to bo rid of that  gentleman, and the premier's follow-  One of the greatest problems in  beekooping today is Hie control ol  swarming. It. is natural for a strong  colony of bees to swarm in eariy  summer when honey is coming in,  but tho breaking up ot the colon}  cuts down the honey yield; while  watching for and hiving swarms  takes a groat deal of the beekeeper's  time, and the swarm may escape,  notice and fly away.  The methods of controlling swarm  ing that have been tested at the  Central Experimental Farm, Ottawa  tall under three heads:  1. General measures. Partly shad  ing the apiary; providing a large entrance with deep space between the  combs and the floor; giving plenty  of room in the brood chamber ana  .supers; and young queens. These  measures, while valuable, have beer,  found insufficient in themselves to  prevent the bees.from raising queens  m preparation for swarming,     v.'.'-'  ,2.  Manipulations to prevent more  I.if a one swarm.     The queen's wings  j arc. clipped,  preferably during I'ruit-  ! bicom, and  when a prime swarm issues and is still in the air, the queen  is  picked  up  from  the  ground   and  placed in a cage, and the hive is removed to a new stand.    A new hive  containing  the caged  queen  is  thei!  placed  on  the  old  stand   to  receive  lae   recurniug swarm,  the uiieen being  liberated later.      Ihe field bees  .jd-t  the Svva.1'111,   ie;'.\iug   the;  pmv..!.  hive so much weakened that it is ucl  iir.i-jiy   to swarm a^iu'ii.       To     ma;:-,  certain ot this,  however,  the pure*,  hhe  may  be  merely   tu.nr.id  arouiu.  and not removed to the distant scam,  until   five  days   later,    'this  meiheu  of swarm control     necessitates    im  mediate  attention   when   the  swam,  issues, but, as the manipulations a:.'.  simple, they can often be carried out  by  the home  folks should  the   beekeeper be away.  3. Manipulations to prevent the  bees swarming altogether. At the  time of writing, none of the manipulations that have been tried has succeeded except the cutting out of all  queen cells every seven or eight days  and this failed during, a heavy honey  flew from clover at Ottawa in lyib  when the bees raised queens from  worker larae, and swarms issued be-  foro the queen-cells were capped over  it lias, however, been found possible  to prevent swarming in out-apiaries,  forty miles nortn of Ottawa, by this  moans, although it entailed weekly  visits from the middle of May until  the middle of August, and much time  way spent in examining eacn colony.  Experiments in the control of  swarming are being continued, especially along the following linos,  which seem the most promising-  (a). Testing the systems of raising brood to the super. Many of  these will delay, swarming under  some conditions.  (b). Finding means by which the  brood chamber may be easily examined without lifting off the supers. A  hive in which the brood combs avc  in a rack that can be drawn out sideways is being tried.  (c). Endeavoring to breed a  strain that will not swarm, of which  the preliminary step is to find out  if the non-swarming character shown  by some queens is inherited. A  queen showing this character was  found to retain it the following y?ar.  FUNERAL OF MRS J. A. LEE  The funeral of the late Mrs. Mildred Lee, widow of ex-Mayo;-' fob:;  A.

Four years of war have taken from  the Dominion a heavy toll in talent and labor, yet despite the shortage of man  power, our Allies still depend on Canada to maintain her own fighting forces at full  strength and to increase her exports of food and war materials, so vital to them, and to  the successful prosecution of the war.  Every ounce by which Canada can increase her food production and every ounce Canada  can save in her food consumption is needed for export to the Allies.  Should the war continue for another year, food cards and a rationing system may have to  be instituted. It is the duty of Canada to he prepared for whatever situation circumstances  may force upon her.  It is quite probable that before the war is won our Government may have to place  restrictions upon the occupations in which men and women may engage. In such an  event the Government wishes to be in a position to render all possible assistance in  keeping our population usefully and profitably employed.

WILL  UK A PERMANENT  ���������    ASSJCT J'OK KftANCE  "When the history of this \var bus  been written" says 1. G. Young, of  I. G. Young inc., ''it v.*ill be more  fully realized what a vital part good  roads have played in the great struggle. At- the start motor truclis leap-  ��������� ed to the front as the modern pacemaker of exiblc transportation, and  ever-increasing war needs have demanded new roads ancl better roads  as most necessary for the proper back  ing up  of fighting forces.  "Motor trucks by    the    thousands  will contribute an enormous advantage to  United  States road engineers  engaged in new construction back of  our Hues.    It is estimated that  1.200  miles  of  highways   will   be  built   in  1918, by American road engineers in  the rear of the firing line in France.  To  the special  road   building battalions ls delegated the important task  of  keeping lines  of     communication  constantly open, aud     Muck     trucks  working in conjunction with modern  Amerlca.n   road   machinery   will   hell)  to build new strategio lines and k-up  communicating roads in constant, repair.    The   Mack   fleet   will   be   composed  of    several     thousand'   dump  trucks,   hot     road     oilers;     pressure  sprinklora   for   making   water-bound  macadam, gasoline tank trucks, pi biting   press  trucks .for   printing   blue  prints,   Instructions,   plans,   reports,  -  etc., machine shop trucks, blacksmith  and  tool repairing truck's.  "Although France Is parcfiuiarly  endowed with good roads, it is olten  necessary for military reasons to construct many new lines. An estimate  places the present mileage of French  roads at one mile of road :'or each  one and one-half square miles of  ground surface. The tremendous task  of keeping these roads in perfect condition ancl building new ones at the  same time, can well be imagined  when it is realized that so far as wear  and tear are concerned war traffic is  ten times as great as that on Fifth  avenue, New York.  "Most of the roads of France' are  ���������built of water-bound macadam. The  peculiar nature, of the French soil,  which is of limestone formation,  lends itself- readily to compaction under tho road roller ancl makes a very  good road building material, although  it requires constant mainenauee. The  British, however, introduced' the tarred surface road, and an increasing  mileage of that type is.found back of  the British lines. One of the principal objections to the water-bound  macadam road near the front is the  dust which rises froni it in dry weather under, heavy war traffic, and  for this, reason .United States engineers, in planning road construction  i and maintenance near the Ame.rie..;n  front, will probably utilize largo  ! quantities of tar coating which is  i freely obtainable in Franco.  "Of course the pressing object of  American road construction is to provide for the immediate needs of our  forces, but. the work carries" with it  both utilitarian and' historic value.  When Caesar's legions poured  through Gaul and into Great. Urifain  and rutin nod to Rome again, (hey  luff in their wake military roads so  carefully constructed that many sections remain today as permanent monuments of their presence. American,  system and modern methods likewise  promise to contribute many enduring  benefits to France. Our road building battalions are-going about their  work scientifically ancl with an object fully as far-reaching as the work  of Caesar. All is not destruction  that comes out of war, and many A-  merican built highways will remain  to become of immeasurable value to  France in conducting her commercial  and social intercourse."  i in ru  issued  by' the Central .Experimental   Farm    Ottawa.  This disease nas ueen known for  some time both     under ���������  the    above  name, as well as under th s name ot  ilaspi^crry Yellows.    Since the curling  of   ihe   leaves   is  the  most  outstanding  feature in connection .with  the  disease,- it is   preferable  to   use  ! the term Raspberry Leaf Curl,  i     The disease affects the leaves and  shoots and is often confined to single  bush or part of' a bush, some o>* '.be  shoots being perfectly    normal    and-  others with the leaves affected. " The  effected shoots; instead of, producing  RASPBERRY LEAF CUJiL  In the interests of market gardeners and small fruit cultivators, ihis  i note on Raspberry Leaf Curl has been  prepared at the Field. Laboratory in  , Southern  Ontario  at St.  Catharines,  normal  large,    broad    leaves,    bear  leaves which are conspicuously small  . iind badly curled downwards. '   in the  early ..stages this symptom is not so  i pronounced, and  while a    small    a-  i mount of curling may occur then, the  disease is more noticeable on account  of the yellowing wliieliLakos v>hico  during the suuiiuor because of the  unhealthy state of the foliage. Siuce  yellowing of the loaves may be due  to a number of other causes, such as'  wet feet, poor soil, drought, etc., it  is best to determine the disease mainly by the Leaf purl symptoms.  In the advanced stages, the canes  bear no fruit. When first attacked  they flower almost normally, but the  fruit, is small and dry and shrivels i.\>  before ripening so that little or no  fruit is ever produced from an infected bush. Of the three varieties  which are commonly grown in. the  Niagara district, Cuthbert, Marlborough ancl Herbert, the Herbert seems  to be freest from the disease. The  other two varieties are quite susceptible, but one rarely sees signs of  Leaf Curl in the Herbert.  So far as is known the disease is  is not considered as due to. any  parasite organism. It apparently belongs to that type of trouble which  has been called'physiological disease  and could therefore be put into the  same class .with peach yello ,vs and  little peach, and the mosaic diseases  of tomatoes, tobacco, potatoes ancl so  forth.    No records are available as to  how the disease is brought into tin1,  field in the first place nor how it .'.,  irannniitted from one plant to another. ��������� It undoubtedly docs spread  once it becomes established in a plan-  ( Uition and many fine plantations are  ! known to have boon greatly injured  by' the, presence of a large number  of Leaf Curl plants. If the disease  corresponds ciosely with the mosaic  or yellow disease, one would susnoct  that it is carried either by insects or  pruning  operations. ,,  Although too little is Known about  Leaf Curl to advise a sui;e, means of  control, one should always remove  flic affected plants as soon as they  show signs ,'of disease. They are of  no use in any ease and are likely to  spread the disease to other parts of  the plantation. In taking out Loaf  Curl plants, cine should be careful  to got (ho whole of root system,  otherwise tin? parts that are loft will  start to gvow and produce now  shoots which will also show Leaf  , Curl originates from nursoi'y cuttings and sonic care should be taken  when setting out a new plantation, to  avoid this disease.
