Occasionally the  raspberry sawfly will cause considerable damage to the foliage' and  when noticed can be controlled b>  the iise of arsenical sprays, such as  arsenate of lead or arsenate of lime,  used at the rate of two pounds of the  powdered form to thirty ' gallons of  water, and sp!rayed on. the bushes. A  couple of thorough sprayings will  generally suffice to control this pest.  Every year there are numerous  .requests from growers, asking why^  the tips of their young canes are"  wilting. Upon close examination it  will be-seen that the cane has been  girded at the point where it has commenced to wilt. This is the work of  the raspberry cane borer and when  this wilting is^fijrst- noticeable, is the  time to institute' concert. Cut well below the .wilted portion and destroy  the cut porion. If these are not removed the young larvae, hatching  from the eggs laid in the girdle) will  work down the cane arid piratically  destroy it.  As soon as the fruiting season is  over remove the old canes by cutting  them off close to the ground, and  destroy them. This gives the new  canes a better chance and assists in  insect and pest control.���������Central Experimental Farm, Ottawa.  SUGAR UP AGATN;  NOW   $7.20   CWT.  Another advance in sugar of 20  cents a hundred was reported in Vancouver wholesale row this week. This  brings the price to $7.20 a hundred.  This makes an increase of 80 cents  per hundred since May first. The Increase is due to a large demand for  raw sugar in United States and Canada and the growers a're keeping the  price way up.

It  will be a great field day for the Lib-  eralsl  Of course' it is the very-best of political propaganda for-the Liberals to  denounce1 the'leader of the opposition  party;especially is it- so when' the  Liberals, see that the Conservatives  are "-taking'up the cry and carrying it  fight into their owii camp. There are  Conservatives, in this province who  talk against .Bowser' as consistently  as do the Liberals,- and it is wonderful what effect it has in keeping the  eye of the: public off-the Liberal government.  At the last-provincial election it!  was shown that. only.38 per cent of  the'voters of theprovinee, and the  was after a -Liberal court of revision,  voted .Liberal, the; cities of Vancouver "and. Victoria doing the trick for  the Liberals. But this percentage  shows that, the Liberal propaganda is  not working as-it;should. The foundation.-is not built oh a solid rock of  servicp-to-,the province such as- the  present leader of the Conservatives  has, rendered.^  This "down with Bowser" is simply- a cry- to - keep the honest Liberals  of the province from demanding a  regular'house cleaning iri their own  camp. '/The Liberals are to be congratulated as being real live to the  present situation,'and one must admire :the-corisistent work, they are  carrying on in every district in the  province, even--^asking the , special  correspondents at Ottawa.-.to- assist.  - It: will, be interesting to watch "the  results .of* the;elections in^Cranbrook  "and Vancouver then the decision: of  the f Conservative;��������� -convention .in  August. The student of politics in  this province .sure has enough to  keep his mind- thoroughly occupied.  the advantages you  Cowichari1, Leader:  will   receive.-  "IF HE CAN GET AWAY WITH IT"  Do you take your , politics as a  matter of personalities.or as a matter  of opinion for the sake of being a  good citizen,.and kidding yourself  tha.t the side you take is made up of  all the. virtues and all the goodness,  all high principles and' original ideas,  and every .other good and great and  glorious characteristic that you have  been told exists in , mankind? No  party is any better than the men who  are prominently connected with it. A  party must; be human as it is composted of .men and women. A man should  ���������be sincere in politics, but he should  not try to make out that a*U the  ���������rogues are on. the other side. He  :'should "take the. beam out of his. eye  land look'around, if. only for the sake  *of seeing ;Who"_ his-bedfellow in ' politics is.    ' These are the days for thought,  ;not'blind; following. No one man is  ! guilty of "carrying5 around with rhim  = all the^virtues orrgraces in the world,  ,-and how could a party be accused of  it?      '  As a man is known    by the coin ���������  pany he keeps, so is he adjudged'  in  the final analysis    by    his character,  says the, ICaniloops Sentinel. In business one of the first questions asked  is "Is he honest?" meaning    "Is his  character sound!   ��������� is  he four-square  and  puctilious in  all     his    dealings  both  in trade and in private?" This  general attitude  to mankind is    far  more prevalent than the    casual ol*  server estimates.    All    our    associations with our fellow-men are touched with this estimate of    their character and it is    often    subconscious.  We may forget the    name of a man.  whom we have not seen    for   years  and in endeavor    to    recall    it,   .wc  search  the memory for some  association of ideas and in    the - process  attempt to remember just how  : he  stood to us as regards    his .general  life.    "Was he the right   sort?"    wo  ask, "was his character sound?"  On the street one constantly hears  the phrase "If he can get away with  it" standing for almost a principle in  trade and commerce. -Analysed, ���������'(  means: "If a man is-within the law;  if he can't be touched' for his dealings and if he does make a handsome  profit by ways and means which are  open to question .then I admire him  for it; anyway, I should worry."  Which is all wrong,    as-  everyone  ._���������   _ f knows, .and means only one thing on.  The foun-'the part of the man who utters "if  he can get away with it," namely  that he is morally oblique. He has a  laxity of code which stamps him perhaps of the same type as the trickster, minus the latter's courage. .He  really admires the other's methods  and his tone suggests that he wishes  he,himself could only put it over.  And it is all for a price.  . "You can't' run business like a  Sunday school" is one of this man's  pet maxims. They are different, as-'  suredly, but it has been proven- thai  ���������business can be-run on perfectly honest lines and is being conducted ��������� so  every day. '.,--.'_  The sense-of honor:' of many-has  become atrophied,':'under ��������� the - mistaken conception^of humanity, whi'c'a  suggests that "if 3rou can get away  with it" it's all right and others will,  admire you for it. Some may, but  the men who dare to be absolutely  on the level, and whom in their  hearts the lax secretly envy, will call  the thing by its real name aud jud^e  the  doer  accordingly.  -With the strawberry season full  upon him.it is a good time now for  the grower to note the adaptation ot i  the variety or varieties he is growing'  to his conditions.. ��������� Due consideration  must be given to (1) yield,- (2) size  of fruit, (3) shipping ability, (4)  quality and (5)' any special feature.  To select a variety, solely on the merits of its yielding.ability is poor practise. It-must be a good shipper, palatable, of good size and if it can, in  addition, be recommended to the consumer as an exceptionally good canning berry, so much the better.  The consumption . of strawberries  can be largely increased if growers  will carefully select; their varieties  and give to the consuming public  that which they require. The grower  catering to a local market could overlook shipping ability'' somewhat and  stress quality of size, or preferably  both. For instance", ^Senator Dunlap.  is one of our best quality berries, but  not a very good shipper for distant  markets; whereas - Glen Mary is a  b'etter shipper, but perhaps not quite  as high in quality, although good  enough in that respect. Portia, a  new introduction of the Horticultural Division,'Experimental Farm, has  the serious fault of being imperfect  in sex, but is an excellent shipper,  high in quality and the best of can-  ners, an excellent example of a berry  suitable for the grower who can cater  to a discriminating market, where  the consumers appreciate a'berry  combining table and canning- qualities. Not only do varieties differ in  these respects, 'butr'ttlso in their  adaptability to soils and localities.  On heavy land in a comparatively  moist, cool climate the Senator Dun-  lap will do much better than on light  soils, in a hot and dry locality. In [  the latter case Parson Beauty or Poco j  moke give better results, so that the  successful grower must ever be on  the lookout for newer' sorts, which  might possibly fit in to his market  requirements or his soil requirements just a little 'better than the  kinds he is growing.���������Central Ex-  perimentarFarm, Ottawa.

'"    *   "'     inoft     tKo  When the Oliver-Farris Government came into off ice in 1916,"it cancelled all arrangements with Folley-,  Welch & Stewart for the building of  the Pacific Great Eastern to Prince  George" and undertook the work itself. A contract was let to the Northern Construction Company for - the  first 42 miles, on a 5 1-2.per cent,  profit, based on unit prices. Under  this- arrangement the contractors  have all to gain and nothing to lose.  This means that everything entering  into, the construction of. the road, as  well as employees of the contractors, is paid for by "the Government  and not a dollar is paid by the contractor. The contractor is paid on  the basis of unit prices per cubic  yard for each class of material used.  On each unit price, whether it be  for grading, for lumber, ties, track-  laying, wages, salaries or any oth,er  class of work, the contractors receive  a profit of supervision fee of 5 1-2  per cent, of,the total amount expended in the construction of the road.  The more money they spend, the  more percentage profit they earn.  After the first 42 miles, work was  done involving several millions '.ol  dollars, without tenders or without  any contract other than the direction  of the Chief Engineer of the Govern  ment. Although the first 42 miles  were to have been completed in January, 1919, or three years ago, the  Government does not yet know what  it cost. Tho cost of 70 miles completed in March, 1920, has not yet been  determined. In March, 1920, the  Premier informed the House that  $4,000,000 would build and equip  the road from Mile    294    to   Prince  George, a distance of .131. miles.  When only 70 miles of this distance  ������������������were finished $7,000,000 .had been  spent.

What has been  accomplished in locating breeding  areas by .'means of the camera and  the aeroplane is detailed in an art  icle in the May-June number of the  Agricultural Gazette of Canada.  So far, the Lower Fraser Valley  of British Columbia constitutes the  region in which the campaign has  been mainly carried on. The investigation, which embraces 1,000/square  miles of ; affected territory, was  started in' 1919. The. first-season an  automobile was employed in a scout  ing expedition to ascertain the mos  quito fauna of the district. The second season was devoted to a study of  the factors determining a mosquito  abundance, for this'purpose a motor-  boat and canoe were"utilized to penetrate the huge cottonwood flood  flood;swamps which are the main  breeding places. In 1921 the mapping of the breeding ' places was engaged in, and it was in swveying tho.  areas that the aeroplane was called  into, service.. During the war, ornamental ponds were drained ' because  it was found that the water was a  guide to zepplin raiders. In a sim-  iliair manner . flooded swamps, the  breeding places of the pest, were revealed to the aviator, who besides  making observations, took useful  photographs. In tills way the knowledge of location necessary for the  eradication of the mosquito was ob-  , tained. The extent of the breeding  [ of. mosquitoes in the district referr>  ed to will be understood when it is  stated that, by actual count, 3,218  fertile eggs were revealed in one  square foot cut from a meadow subject to flooding.

HOUSE VOTE  PASSES  COMMONS  OTTAWA, June 26.���������AH the remaining items in the supplementary  estimates were cleaned up in the  House Saturday night. The item for  $175,000 for the purchase of British Columbia House jn London drew  an explanation from the premier that  the Premier of British Columbia had  opened negotiations for the sale of  this property to the federal government during his visit to Ottawa re-  cenly. The $175,000, Mr. King  said, would provide for the cost of  the preliminary arrangements in connection with the sale.  Reports from Prairie points indicate that crop prospects are good.  Very little hail damage has been reported so far. Moisture is reported  plentiful in the majority of districts'.  The grasshopper pest in only reported  from a few points. There is an optimistic feeling prevailing amongst  the farmers. In some ' districts  warm weather has caused the grain  to head out early with short straw.  Forage crops are uniformly good.in-  each Province. Live stock is generally doing well with excellent pasture. From present indications an  early harvest is predicted in Manitoba. In the country North of Edmonton crops are looking well, but  can do with a little more moisturel  This condition is general throughout  the Provinces.  ������l ���������'���������'  Funeral Director  'AGENT   FOR  KEADSTON2JS  Tht time will come when the only ,  battlefield will be the   market   open ���������  toe ommerce and the. mind open    to  new  ideas.-���������Victor Hugo.
