Its control is difficult, because of  its very rapid growth and prolific  spore production.

'ORCHARD   PESTS   AND .THEIR  CONTROL  Funguous  diseases. While insects  belong to the animal kingdom, the  various    fungi    and    bacteria    are  plants.   A fungous is  a  true plant  though   usually   quite'.simple  Un  structure.   Unlike ferns and flowering plants, fungi have no green  coloring   matter,   and ,-derive  iaJ  their sustenance in organic form oy  living as para-i-es on living organisms, or  as' saprophytes  on  dead  ones.   The mushroom  and  bread-  mould are two common types. "The  whitish threads to be  found  ruii-  ��������� ning through the soil beneath   a  mushroom or toadstool, is the true  plant body, which is equivalent to  the roots and stems of higher plants  while the mushroom itself is  the  fruiting body containing the spores  which are the equivalent of seedd.  From the standpoint of the fruil  grower, fungi may be divided into  two classes:  1. Those whose mycelium, .or  vegetative portion, lives' on^the  surface of the host pliant, as, ������oi  example, the various mildews.  2. The larger class embraces those  whose   mycelium   penetrates   into'  the tissues of the host plant, such  as the Apple 'Scab and Black Spot  Canker  THE    MARKET.  An exceptionally good market,  was that of Frifday, the attendance  of both buyers and sellers being  above the average. The prices,  with few exceptions, remained unchanged, the consumers being well  satisfied, as also the sellers. A  good supply of eggs and poultry  was on hand, while beef and mut-  toiTalso came in fair quantities.  The fish supply, especially spring  salmon, came in for good selling,  .there being a good variety of the  finny tribe on the stalls. A large  offering of fowls was noticed, but  laying hens called for little demand. A.little comment was made  on the size of the broilers, those  on sale only averaging half pound  to a .pound. It is believed that if  farmers and chicken raisers, would  hold their stock until they grow. s>  little larger, they would find beL-  r ter prices than those now prevailing-  There was. a good supply and  demand for cauliflower, tomatoes  and celery plants, while the out  flowers also' came in for brisk selling. * ���������      ���������  Potatoes, per sack   1.60 to $2.00  Potatoes, per ton      32  Carrots, per sack   l-^5  Beets,, per sack      I-00'  Seed potatoes, per ton ��������� 27 to $30  Parsnips,, per sack     LOO  Lettuce, per bunch  oc  Onions,   2   bunches    ;������c  Rhubarb, per bunch   10c  plumed and gilded the left wing  of the Guardian Angel, 4 francs IT  centimes; .washed the  servant  of  the High Priest, and put carmine  on his cheeks, 5 francs 12 centimes;  renewed heaven, adjusted two stars  gilded the sun, and renewed  the  moon, 7 francs 14 centimes; re-animated the  flames  of  purgatory,  and restored some souls, 6 francs  6 centimes; revived the flames of  helk.put  a new tail on the devil,  .mended his hoof, and did several  jobs for the damned,  4  francs 10  put new spatterdashes on the 3on  of Tobias, and    dressing    on    his  back, 2 francs 7 centimes,- put ear*  rings in the ears of Sarah, 2 francs  4 centimes; re-bordered the robe  of Herod, and re-adjusted his wig,  4 francs 4 centimes; p^ut   a   new  stone in David's sling, enlarged the.  head of Goliath, and extended his  legs, 3 francs 2 centimes; decorated Noah's ark, 3  francs; mended  the shirt of the Prodigal Son and  cleaned the pigs,-4 francs 9 centimes.

Eggs and Butter  The fungi belonging to the. first   ggggj retail, per dozen   ooC  group can generally be destroyed   EggSj wholesale"-   by spraying with suitable fungicides when they appear, but those  of Group 2 are not affected by such  spraying. Their entrance into the  tissues is,to be prevented by spray  ing before innoculation takes place.  This requires that all the .suscepl-  able area be thoroughly coated with  the spray, and if growth is taking  place, as in the spring and eany  summer, spraying must be repeated to cover the new growth as long  as there is danger of serious inoc-  nlation.  The   fungous   diseases   causing  most serious loss in the province*  are:  1. Black Spot Canker.  2. The Brown Rot of the Plum  Prune and  Cherry.  3. Apple  /Scab   .  Black Spot Canker. This dis .  ease causes the death of large areas  of the bark and outer wood, principally of the apple: It is of consequence only where fall rains are  plentiful, in combination with mild  weather. It is easily prevented by  one thorough spraying in the Fall  with double strength IBordeauv  mixture.

Dr. Duncan,. MacDougall, of Haverhill, Mass:, who has long been a  student of psychical phenomena, declared his belief, in an Interview here  that the human soul weighs from one  half ounce to nearly an ounce and a  quarter, and further that the soul  substance 1b blended with the protoplasm of the brain and spinal cord  in life.  Dr. MacDougall says it has been hla  experience in a dozen instances to  watch a dying man or woman stretched on a bed that was part of a delicately adjusted scale, and to hear,  as the patient's last breath leaves the  lin   (body, the noise of the  dropping out  "Jc   of the weight.  ������c       Again, sitting in a darkened room,  10c   he ������������������has watched a strong ray of pure  ���������lhn   white light rest along the body of a  .     dying man, covering him like a silver  "oc   bar from feet to head,  and over the  6c   face     Dr.  MacDougall  believes  that  this ray  of light is  the "soul  substance."   . ...,         Removal Notice  I am now located in the Sumas State.

The   Jew   threw   Judy   an   appreciative glance.    The one  thing lacking in his beloved daughter was, that  she   did    not   care    sufficiently    for  things     domestic.     Now,     however,  nothing    could    be    more    feminine,  more graceful, than the way in which  she presided at the table, and as'icd  them   aill   so   sweetly   whether   they  would take cream and sugar, and if  their coffee was to their liking, and  would they have cake or bread and  butter.  . Mr. Ostro exchanged a glance with  Mr. Bertwin. .The two'men were content They had had a pleasant evening.    They did not want to go.  "Just a moment, please," said Judy  when they" rose to take leave. "I  want you to. know our whole Glub  procedure.    Our toast, girls."  In suppressed astonishment, Mr.  Bertwin watched .the uplifted faces  turned towards the painting over the  mantel, heard the low, "God bless  her," then listened like a man in a  trance as those youthful creatures, in  the bloom of life, sang their mournful song, "I'm a pilgrim, and I'm a  stranger, I can tarry, I can tarry but  a night."  "Why do you sing such sad things?"  he said to Judy. , |  "Because we are so happy, sir."   5,  "Is that the truth?"

They adore  heavy hymns and mournful songs."  The    Ehree    girls    turned    to    the  Westerner Tvith flashing eyes.   Peanuts   began   to    splutter   a   remark  about "The grand old hymns of the  church,"  wften  she remembered'  the  presence  of  strangers,   and   denying  herself the luxury of a controversy,  burst into a merry. laugh in which  her comrades joined her.  Mr. Bertwin gave them a piercing,  comprehensive glance, then looked at  the mantel.   "I recognize' that paint-  anon.'' Won't Firefly be mad with  me!" and she glanced apprehensively  over her shoulder.  Firefly was surveying her wtih a  curious, half-approving, haif-doubtful  glance. Judy bade Mara's father  adieu quietly, then went to sit by thu  fire her head propped in her hands.  The girls were all gathered by the  table, laughing and joking In reality  about trifles, but to tlie tired Judy  their attitude seemed  suspicious.  "They've got some secret between  them," she muttered gloomily, "and  I'm out of It. They're tired of me  for president. I'll resign. Girls,"  she exclaimed suddenly springing up,  "make Firefly president of the Club.  I'm not fit for the office."  Firefly caught her by the hand.  "You're cross and excited. Girls, you  can wind up here without us. Mara  don't sit up for me.   I'll be late."      o  CHAPTER XVIII  The Story of a Conspiracy..  Judy hung back, but Firefly pullc1  her along the hall to her room, locked the door, and drew- two chairs  up to the radiator. "Sit here child,"  she said, "and I'M explain everything.  First, though, I'll cake down your  hair, and help you off with that tight  dress." .  "My, dress isn't tight, but the' air  is," said Judy poutingly. "It's bursting with mystery." -   r  "So it is," said Firefly soothingly,  "but you'll soon see through it. Oh!  Judy, what a week I've had."  "Tell me wlAt you brought that  old blank-walled sphinx here to-night  for, with the melancholy Jew," said  Judy  fiercely. .  Firefly began to laugh.    "Oh, Judy,  it's so funny.

Before they did. this, one  of them whom I might as well say  here was John Bertwin, only son and  heir of the man who was here this  evening, said politely, 'Will you.care  to hear how the man gets on?'

Faitht'ull   Bcgg,   treasurer,  who   presided,   said   that  no   country  could   show   such   a   remarkable   advance in  progress as  Cauad-'i during  the past five years.   Canada had done  Its part nobly in the recent elections  and  it  was  for  the   United  Kingdom"  now to do hers and show appreciation  of 'the efforts of the Dominion in tho  cause of imperial unity.  A. W. Smititers, chairman of the G.  T. R.. thought the British Government  was discreditable ifor investigating  the emigration-question so unscientifically.

Councillor Bell introduced tne  Noxious Weeds By-law and- tne  council decided to enforce the uy-  law and ordered that all Canadian  thistles be cut by July 20th.  The clerk stated that the titua  was very short in which to get out  rate notices, and that the assessor  had offered help in the matter.  The Municipal Rate By-law was  introduced for 1st reading.  Bell-Lehman, that the Municipal  Rate be the same as last year, l. e.  iV/2 mills on wild land; 10 mills on  real property and 2% on school.  Three councillors voted for and  one against,.  Ware-Roberts, that the Rate Bylaw passed the second reading.  A long discussion ensued'^and it  was stated that without extra taxes the road work could not go on;  'Applications were received at bV-  ery meeting asking for new roads.  So much of the land was held by  real estate men, land that had gone  up from   10 to   100 per acre. Years  ago the tax from the wild lands  paid for the road work, but now  the wild land tax gets less each  year and the road work increases.  The clerk stated that if the rates  were levied the same as last yeai,  with the increased assessment the  raise would be 25 per cent as the  2 mills for road labor was now u-  bandoned.   The Reeve said he acknowledged that money was wanted for road work', but he did not  think rates should be raised without reference to the people.     He  would rather have a deficit at the  end of the year, as ha wa3 opposed  to the  by-law, but  as   Reeve  he  will do his duty.  Lehman-Roberts, that the rules  of order be suspended to enable  the third reading of the Municipal  Rate; By-law with Councillor Bell  in the chair on (Saturday, June 29  Bell-Lehman, that the school estimates of   45,000 be accepted.  On the question of the Light and  Power By-Law the clerk was instructed to write Mr. McNeil of tho  Western Canada Power Co. that it  would not be safe to erect the  high voltage line until the By-law  has been passed as some considerable opposition is manifest.
