They were welcomed by. Reeve Murray, and  ex-President Davies replied, saying that he never saw such berries. He had always found his mouth equal to most occasions  but to thoroughly enjoy such large berries one should be pro-  ' vided with a shoe-horn. The observatory, the second largest in  America was visited, and many had the opportunity of gazing at  tlie moon through the large" telescope. Oil Sunday morning a  trip over the Malahat Drive was a part of the programme, and  fine ripe free strawberries was another item which received  many enconiums from the scribes. The generosity of the berry-  growers of Vancouver Island will long be remembered by these  men who write up the trip and readers will undoubtedly read  about it from coast to coast. After the return trip a farewell  dinner was given at the Hotel Vancouver, after 'which the train  departed for-the east.  And here a word of explanation why the Fraser Valley  Record and the Abbotsford Post did not appear last week���������the  editor was among those who were enjoying themselves, believing that he could do more to boost B.

CHILLIWACK  B1H1KIES WILL  COME   TO   HATZIC  ��������� FRIDAY, JUNE 17, 1921.  TITE   RIGHT    PRINCIPLE  Tr,v I'rovi.'icial Mii.i-'i- r of Ay'ilnil-  turc, MoiH>rahIe Manning' Doherty,  has been criticized for having ofl'c:*-  .<������d to pay the salary for the first year  of the- new cooperative company in  the Niagara. Peninsula. While possibly there was some justification for  this criticism, on the ground thai  he was pledging Governmental  support for one commercial concern  as against other commercial companies already in the field, we believe  that the public will be inclined to  be lenient in the matter in view of  the fact that Hon. Mr. Doherty realizes 'that-the- most-- effective means'  possible of developing agriculture in  Ontario is to promote marketing organizations among the producers.  For several decades the Ontario  Government has spent annually large  sums of money, endeavoring to induce farmers' and fruit growers to  produce better grade products and  to grade those properly. Much of  this advice, has not been wasted because producers have not had marketing, organizations through which they  cculd sol] their own products. When  high grade products .have been produced, middlemen have, often received mf-st. of the benefit. Thus' producers have not. seen enough profit In,  producing tho best goods to oncour-  ?.ee them to make the effort involved., '  As.soon as farmers commence marketing their products co-operatively in large quantities,ithey quickly  lr-arn the requirements of the.different markets' to which they cater and  the profit that may be derived when  largo quantities of high-grade pro--:  ducts are marketed under standard  grades. This leads them to ad vise*  the producers-as to what is required.  This advice, coming, as it does', from  th-"--'r <���������*"���������"��������������������������� officers, placed in a position, asitiicy are, to knoNv market  condition", is heeded and quick improvement may be noticed. It is  doubtful if the oranges and raisins of  California or the apples of tho states  of Washington and Oregon and of the  0'.-mr,ean Valley of British Columbia  would have been known as they are  f*-dny in the eastern markets of this  continent, as well as in Europe, hPd  it. not been for the efforts of the wcll-  orp'nni'/ed producers' companies  v.'v'!"'-h have promoted their sale.  Thn-se companies wore quick to sop  ibfir 'heir "*.ncvesr" was going to be  d.-'tprmined by their ability to supply  l.ivo-o quantities of high grade product"*, l'.'gularly to their customers in  the different markets' of tho world.  Py fining so they have been ibl������ to  P'iy their members such satisfactory  prices for their products that thev  r-j-ivp secured and now have no difficult v in holding their co-operation m  r-rn-ri'-tin.sr the production of the lar;'-  eqt -lossible pc-rcentage of high-grade  fruit.  Hon. Mr. Doherty realizes that once  Dip fruit growers of -the Niagara  Peninsula unite in marketing their  r'-n(*i]f>fS. tii0 whole force of their  cr^fnira'tion will soon be utilized tc  conduct an educational work amonir  die t't-u't errowers of the Peninsula  tn iTiduce them to supply fruits for  rile by their company that will en-  rure tho'ennn^my being able to marl-el i's prodiicicj (_o -ldvantTgM in com-  >)i--t:',r>n  w,,r,i pmfflnr producers' com-  and all the grower-can do is to'plant  varieties known to be resistant, in his  locality.  Spraying or dusting for any raspberry diseases has not veil boon shown  to be of sufficient economic value to  be recommended. The fungus diseases���������-cane blight, anthrachos'e. spur  blight, and orange rust are of fairly common occurrence, and at time*  destructive, but in no case is there  any definite, treatment. The removal and burning of infected plants.  el- the changing of the location of  \]\p plantation arc the only precautionary measures to recommend. ..It  if* good practice, to change the plantation about every,5 or 6 ye.ars. This  not only prevents diseases from becoming established, but the land becomes impoverished in the food n-*-.  quirements of. the raspberry plant iu  an old .plantation. After,the crop  has been,harvested, the canes which  have borne fruit-that season should  be carefully pruned out and .burned.  By so doing the plantation wjll be rid  of much material which 'would harbour d'seiise.-'-TIie. Canadian Horticulturist.  CHILLIWACK, June 10.���������Chilliwack berry growers'".are.,preparing to  handle their jaw? product independent of the jam'factories. "The canneries have taken the position that'  they will accept the fruit at the'time  of picking at the market prices, and  are giving no indication as to what  that, price may. be.

It is the basis of all our  feeding and for this reason it should  receive the very best care in cutting,  curing and keeping so as to lose  none of its nutritive value and be  palatable to the stock. Various  crops require different treatment to  produce the best results so a short  resume of some of the more Important features to bear in mind with alfalfa, clover and timothy * will be  given. *'  Alfalfa should be mown for hay  when it begins to bloom or when the  new shoots at the root crowns '-ire  well started. As the leaf is the lr*rh-  ly nutritive portion of tlie air-Ufa  plant, the less handling it receives  the better," as the leaves break off  easily, it should be cut after the dew  is off and, soon after, raked into  windrows, as the longer it , remains  in tlie swath the more it will he  come bleached and  discolored  by the  Ktr,M\(;   SUAIWO   'HUM'S  Undesirable shade frees, such as  Norway popular and Balm of.Ci'.oad  may be killed by. girdling (ho trees  about four feet from the. ground;  then the bark should be stripped to  tho roofs.

RASPREKRY DISEASES  Raspberry plants are subject to  r'ip.ny diseases, some of which cause  *-neh loss to the grower. Cntortun-  n'elv. most of them do not respond to  r-"?*"d)al or control  nioiisuio.s.  In th's short article, it would not  '��������������� nofislblo to describe tlie symptoms  and causes of each of the diseases  f*> detail. Reference can only be  ���������"ido In (i general way. A complete  d-RTiption will be found in the. bulletin on "Hush Fruits and their Cul-  I'vn'lon in Canada." which may be  e'ltjiinnd by application to the Puh-  lieatioes H-ranch, Dopt. of Agriculture,   Ottawa.  ���������With the exception of crown gall  i-nd veJlow or curl leaf, the. diseases  i"'" all cruised by fungi.

It should be loft in the windrows a day or two until about half  dry and then placed in small cocks,  where it is left until sufficiently cured for stacking or placing in the  barn. The main point to keep In  minw is to dry it out with as little exposure to the sun' and elements as  possible.  Clover is cut when the plant is  in full bloom or when about one third  of the leaves have turr>ed brown. I!  is cut when tho dew is off and allowed to wilt. The tedder is run over  it once o.- twice to loosen and shake  it out so that it will cure evenly.  After it is partly dry it is put in wind  rows and cocked. As' long as there  is no dew or moisture on the. hay it  is not essential that all the. san be  evaporated from the plant before  stacking, as it can be safely stacked  much greener than most people think*.  Timothy for cattle should be cut  when in the*second bloom or when  the stamens have burst their pollen.  The plant is then in full sap and when  cured is relished by the cattle. For  horses it should be cut from a weel*  to ten days later, as' when cured it is  less washy and does not scour. It is  cut when the dew is off, shaken un  with, the fodder and, when wilted. i<  i.:   nl;ier>(|   in   cfwk.s' in    'finish     ''Uriii'J  If is' one of the easiest crops to cure  and keeps well.  Rain during haying Is injurious,  as it. delays the final curing, causes  discoloration and mold and lessens  the aroma and palatabllity. After a  rain if is necessary to turn the cock->  over and thoroughly dry them. A  well built cock will shed a great  amount of rain. Th'ey should not be  made by rolling the hay up in bunches, hut should he carefully built  up of layers, keeping the centre of  fhe cock high. The three main essentials of good hay making to keep  in mind are: First, cut the crop at  the proper stage of development;  second, handle the hay no more thau  necessary, third, cure the hay largely in the cock.���������Experimental Farm's  Note.

As  the runners develop,  .the cultivator should be narrowed, so  j that  the runners-are  not disturbed  after they commence to form plants.  Great care Is necessary to avoid disturbing the plants at this time. Some  of the runners may be shifted to give  I a more even    distribution of    plants  'along the row, and some hand hoeing  'will be necessary to prevent    weeds  , from  growing  later.

The health  ")f Canada's live, stock    during both  years is shown to have been    highly  satisfactory.    In  fact il is    easy    to  believe that Canada is the healthiest  "ountry in  the  world   for all   breeds  of live stock.    No country can claim  to  he absolutely  free  from ailments  :n its cattle, hoVses, sheep and swine  iny,. more than  it    can    that    every  human being is health-perfect.    But  Canada it is    safe to    assert,    conies  nearer to tho-ideal    state    than any  ofher   land.     None   of   the   epizootic  diseases I hat cause most anxiety    to  sanitary officials, such as foot    and  mouth  diseases,  cattle plague,    and  contagious     pleuro-pneumonia.     are  found  within  our  borders.     Diseases  that do exist lo a very limited c:<tent,  such  as glanders,  hog    cholera, and  cattle mauge, the report shows,    arc  being kept well  under control    and  are   diminishing  in   number  year   by  year.    Glanders is proven to have existed only in Northern Saskatchewan  and Manitoba and in those provinces  extremely few cases are reported. All  tho  outbreaks,  the Veterinary    Director General   is able  to state,  havt*  been  efficiently dealt    with and the  disease eradicated.    Where hog cholera  and cattle mange have appeared  vigorous action  has immeditely been  taken  with the result   that contagion  has   been  everywhere    checked     and  districts  entirely cleared.   Regarding  hog cholera,    experience    shows that  nearly all cases originate.on premises  where    garbage is    fed to    animals.  Cooking, if properly done, is    stated  to  he an  effectual safeguard.     Full  statistics arc given in  the report    of  the activities undertaken all over the  country which  indicate  the  remarkable results achieved.    A marked increase is    shown in    the number    ot  live  stock   inspected   for exportation  in  the year   1919-1020 as compared  with   the  previous  year,  the  figures  being ,140,000 as compared with 100.-  rifln ���������Dominion Department of Agriculture.
