These,  are; the location, based'upon thc  greatest good to- the greatest num.  her; the natural conditions which  obtain in the district, such as the  topography and presence of road material; the need of foreseeing future  development, and planning to meet  it; the type of road that should be  chosen; the construction, and lastly, the preservation of the road.  Briefly, the main points are:  tfon; selection of type; proper  struction, and preservation.  The difficulties of a road  gramme, in Saskatchewan are  from its great area, and small  -ulation.-between 600,0 00 and'  000, less than two people to  square mile; yet with 210,000  of roadway.  Another difficulty is that the  roads were laid out in straight lines,  through swamps, bluffs, holes, alkali land, with no idea of their being useful.  ���������Again, there is the lack of good  road material, clay alone being present in many places; the shortage  of labor; and the shortness of the  working season.  There have been difficulties in  selecting the right type', because  cew road engineers are familiar wi h  THK  KUSHANDS  UTK'l)  OONTR1I5-  THK OVUKALLS  Inslcad of buying silk dresses  when long skirts came back into  style to be ruined in crossing muddy  loca-  con-  pro-  see.������.  pop-  700,-  the  miles  the/ women of Capitol  a suburb of Washington, D.

All the talk of an impending general election iri British Columbia is  simply inspired gossip, according to  lion. ,), D.' MacLean, provincial secretary and minister ��������� of education.  As acting premier he states (bar, tho  government has no intention of appealing to the people at present,  maintaining that with the - government having two sessions more to  go and with thc province in a flourishing condition the people must be  well salisfied with things as they  are. This also appears to be the opinion of politicians in general', despite  the determined , campaign of criti-  c'sui being carried on by Mr. Bowser  and some of his supporters.  A writer in the Hampshire and  Telegraph Post, of March 9th has  following to say, which ��������� shows that  all the fruit troubles are not in 13.  C:  Swanick and   District  Fruit  Growers  Sir: It is noticed that once again  great stress has been laid on the  problem the railway companies have  to solve in getting the fruit to the  market centres in good time. Whilst  ton thc one hand it is essential that  the railways should do their best to  guarantee express transit, it 'is, on  the other hand, up to the fruit grow-  . ers to assist them lo mainain the  same.  For instance, take a  strawberry season is  Early in the morning'  the packing yards at.  Bot.ley station ready  tion  of the .fruit for  day when thc  at its  height.  you  will   find  Swanick    or  for  the  recop-  transit,    ready  for ch\p baskets' by the thousand.  /Until the fruit actually arrives in  the station yard the railroad authorities are not aware of the ultimate  destination of same. Thus alt'sough  they can party prepare a train in  readiness for dispatch, they cannot  properly prepare it. Probably on  the previous day sufficient chips  were received to load three vans to  Leeds, but- the Company's officials  cannot work on that, and provide  three vans in readiness ("properly  marshalled) for this particular day's  traffic, because, as likely, as. no inconsequent upon receipt of news of  poor prices realised in Leeds���������the  whole traffic may be diverted to an  entirely different part of the country. For this Estate of affairs the  railway companies cannot be blamed, and it requires but little organisation on the part of the fruit  growers to quash it.  Again,   the   railway  nightmare:���������The  man  at  the  eleventh   hour  loaded up to the hilt  would  fruit  loaders'  who     arrives  with  a  trolly  with chips for  a dosen different destinations. He  is only a nuisance to himself and the  loaders, but also to other growers  waiting to unload. He causes congestion, which leads to delay. Then  there are the growers', who in spite  of the fact that they have been.pro-  vided with timetables, persist in arriving at station after closing time  for fruit for a particular district.  Consequently as often as not their  chips are being -loaded long after  departure time of the special train.  What of the fruit growers who  put on salesman's covers on then-  chips and then consign them to another? Others consign a 100 chips  to "so and so" Veil knowing they  have only covered 99. Others make  out their consignment notes wrong,  and some come without notes at all.  There arc still others who arrive  with their covers tied down badly,  some who have their chips overloaded. , .  Then there is the grower, who is  expecting a decent market with  shoddy fruit,- who endeavours ; to  manoeuvre bis chips in with prime  fruit. ' Can all these irregularities,  for which the fruit grower is entirely responsible, assure quick loading,  sound packing and express transit?  History lias proved that the South  Western Railway can manage practically anything, but the growers  cannot expect the Company to,tackle  the impossible. Thus if only the  growers will mend their ways, delays will be non-existent.  It is gratifying to see that one  prominent grower resident in Hedge  End speaks highly of the staff at  Bol.Iey, and I am sure they appreciate it.    ,."  In conclusion, I would like to ox-  press a hope that the forthcoming  season will prove a bumper one,  and that the relations existing between all concerned in the strawberry traffic will be further cemented   with  tlie spirit of goodwill.  reckless in ihe'ir choosing at this  season of the year; and, frequently,  I regret to record, take a life .partner or a type of payment, without  sufficient differentiation between  veal and  apparent values.  That is why tho divorce courts  and the pavement specialists ���������nre  always busier in the fall than in the  spring.  Did youth seek ��������� wise counsel ;u  the birth of love, and the city father at the very conception of his'.paving project, neither the divorce  courts, nor (ho paving specialists  would have so many post mortenis  to   perform.  All of'which is very much to thc  point; .for it is only too true that tho.  paving specialist i.s frequently only  called in to perform tho post mortem: or, at any rate after the case  has gone too far to be cured.  Now the pavement physician  should be called in at the birth; or',  better still, even before: and not  after trouble has developed from Uu  .improperly born paving project.  Instead'of which, sad to relate.  about one-half of our business,  scorns to be in attending funerals,  and trying to explain why the pavement paid for the municipals dollar  came by so untimely an end.  Of course, paving physicians, like  those of the medical fraternity, do  not always succeed; and sometimes  wc may even kill an occasional patient.  Unfortunately for us. we cannot  bury our mistakes as do the doctor  gentlemen. We never hear the last  of them. t  Sometimes wc are even severely  blamed for the mistakes' of other  people whom we have tried to prevent from   making them.  All of which just leads us to this  point:  Any good, paving specialist  sooner that the Canadian municipalities would employ him  before-    the  wedding tharwifter the  death.  He is likef"Tto have a great sympathy with brides and grooms, and  with city fathers who are anxious to  spend the municipal dollar well, and  will try to deal gently with them.  But he is apt to feel everlastingly  like soaking the wise guy who didn't  need any counsel from the experienced, has gotten into serious' difficulty, and finally had to come unwillingly to him in his extremity.  "Better to be right than sorry.''  Tt may cost a little more at the  start to be right; but the experience  which produces the sorrow is usually very expensive indeed.  There is' sorrow enough left in the  paving world for the most insatiable  "misery hound," even where all that  can be avo'idied by availing ourselves  of tho collective experience of our  forefathers,   has   been   eliminated.  Specialized engineering talent has  not yet designed the really permanent pavement.  'So far, only the pavement promoter selling a particular brand of  goods, protected by patent or by  commercial monopoly, has been able  to accomplish  this feat.  Beware of the pavement promoter  who comes around with the birds in  the  springtime.  And most, of all beware of the fellow trying to sell stock to city fathers and their friend in paving companies possessing patents' for "wonderful" and? "permanent" pavements.  "There ain't no such thing" as a  permanent pavement.  And "wonders" ceased'to be several  centuries old.

We  have not  yet ..reached  the point arrived    at in     California  where SO  per cent, of the fruit output, apart from   the citrus fruits,  is  canned or preserved,    but we    have  brought the business'  so far to    the  front that ic lias become an industry  of great  importance.'   As  Mr.  C   S.  McGillivray,   Chief   Canning   Tiispec-  or   of   the   Dominion   Department   of  Agriculture,     says     that     Canadian  caliners have [jacked  sufficient  high  grade/ fruits    to    demonstrate    that  the highest quality can be packed in  this  country if,     he pointedly  adds,  the canner can get. the right kind of  raw  material.       There  is  the  point.  The canner can  help the fruit grower to a large and profitable market,  but, in order that he may do so, he  must be provided,  not with culls or  fruit of inferior     quality,  but    with  thc best that can be grown.  Tf fruit growing is to be a profitable occupation, the development of  canning and dehydration or drying  is' a prime necessity for, in the  short season during which the product of the. trees and bushes can be  marketed in a fresh state, it is at  times   impracticable  to   dispose     re-  Thc potato at the present tune is  subject to so many internal and external  ailments' that rigid  and   careful selection must be adopted if good  yields .pf healthy  tubers  are  to     be  obtained.     At  the Invermcre Experimental Station it has    been    found  that sprouting the potatoes prior to'  planting,  and selecting'   only    those  tubers   that  show     strong    vigorous  sprouts the yields have been greatly  increased.    Thc    average    yield  per  acre per year of    22    A'avieties    for  three years  prior to  selection,     was  14 ton's,  GO;"  lbs., Avhile the average  yield  of  the  same varieties  for  the  next  three   years,     evidently  mainly  clue to selection, Avas  27   tons,     62 0  lbs. per acre���������an increase of nearly  100  per  cent.       The  increase  is  so  marked   and   the  additional   evpense  in  sprouting  and  selection  so  small  that a  detailed,  description  is  given  in the hope that many growers Avill  benefit  thereby.    The    potatoes  are  brought out to the    light    three    or  four weeks prior fo planting, and al-  lOAved to sprout.      At,   the    Station  small flat crates that hold about 30  lbs. are used.    These    are    stacked  five or six    feet high,    and in    this  way a large number of potatoes can  be    sprouted     in    a    comparatively  small space.     In  looking    oyer     the  potatoes before selecting it Avill    be  noticed   that   they   Arary  greatly     in  their' sprouting tendencies and characteristics.     Select  only  those potatoes    'hat    'have    strong,    vigorous  sprouts.    The  rejects  are  more  valuable to you  for table use,    or    pig  feed, than   for seed   'purposes.    The  potato that" fails to sprout, or    that  sends out only a few weak shoots if  it does, Avill give you    practically no  returns Avhen  soavh  as seed  In the selection care should also  be taken to discard all pofato.s  that show external diseases, such as  scab and rhizoctonia.. The tubers  should then be treated with corrosive sublimate of formalin, preferably the former. At cutting time  any potato thatshoAvs internal injury or discoloration should be discarded, and the knife disinfected  before cutting another potato.  Selection should also be carried  on in the growing crop by eradicating or rogueing those plants that  show disease.

On May 1 nineteen men in the employ of the Dominion Goverment  forestry Branch assumed duty as  Forest Fire Rangers ancl will continue in that capacity until on or  about the 30th  of September.  These   men,   who   work   under  the  direction of E.  YValnisley,    Dominion  Timber Agent and    .James    Selkirk,  Chief Ranger,  are    stationed at various points within the Agency, which  extends East to North Bend.    "Their  'first  and     most     important     duty,"  states Mr. Walmsley.    "is to prevent  loss of timber through fire, and each  individual  is     aware    that    through  himself this cannot be accomplished,  consequently- every Ranger    endeavors to enlist the interest of the settlers   within   his    district    in     their  burn?n.g  of  waste  material,  it  being  distinctly understood that while    the  protection  of the timber from fire is  csential in the interests of the people  as a whole, the interests' of the individual   settler     endeavoring   to   hew  out a home for himself ancl    family,  must, and does,    receive    consideration.     Every ranger is supplied with  fire-fighting       tools  such as    water  buckets,  shovels, axes,  etc.. and   the  Department  keens    ready  for emergency several  gasoline    pumps  with  the  necessary  hose,     through   which  many,   what   would     otherwise   have  nroved  serirum   fires  have  been  subdue without loss.      The Forest Fire  Act reniiires that all  camns  he  pro-  Vied     with     specified     fire-fighting  mu'ipmenl and it is the duty of    the  Rangei' to see  that this nrovis.'on is  carried out.    Tt is    generally found,  however,  that operators realise    the  danger of fire and in addition to providing  such  couinmant  as  the     law  venuires. many of them employ spec.  ial   rangers al   the'r  own  expense to j it is said. wMl be  $1  is kept  season it  causes   of  showing the position of every fire  burning over an area of. ten acres or  more, accompanied by a form giving  the cause of the fire, number of men  employed fighting it and loss of timber. A very complete record  so that at the close of the  is' possible to tabulate the  fire under their proper heading and  the total loss sustained."  . Mr. Walmsley states that each  succeeding year he'finds an increased interest in timber protection, the  general public realizing that timber  destroyed through fire is a loss not  only to the Government of the clay or  the individual owner, but to every  citizen, and while a special effort is  being made by the Dominion and  Provincial Forestry Branches during  the present week to enlist the interest of the people, it is not proposed  to stop at the end of that period.  Instead the campaign will be conducted throughout the country until  every individual is' made to realize  that the timber assets are worthy of  attention, conservation from every  man. woman and child resident in the  Province, not one of whom can  truthfully say that he or she could  live in comfort if the forest supply  was exhausted.
