BATES, Editor and Prqprfetor  FRIDAY, MAY. 12, 1922  TOMATO CULTURE FOR  SHORT SEASONS  Th'ere are many districts where the  season is too short to warrant tomato growing on a large scale. Enough  tomatoes however may be grown to  meet domestic grounds, and those of  a local market, When this class' of  soft fruit lias to be shipped ' several  hundreds of miles, as is often the  ' case, and has run ' the gauntlet of  commission houses, jobbers, wholesalers and retailers, by the time it  reaches the consumer it is a very  questionable commodity. , This condition, plus freight and .express  charges, does not conduce to a healthy demand, hence the advisability of  home-grown fruit whenever prartji-'  able.,'Where tlie season is free from-  frost between June 12th and September 20th, it is qute possible to have  a good supply of tomatoes if atten-  , tioh lie paid to detail, and the plants  receive the care they , need at the  proper time.  Sowing tomato seed (for planting  in-the .open around June 12th)  should take place ���������_ during the last  week in ..-March or the first.week in  Apiri'l. "This should.be done in shallow, boxes -in.the hot-bed. The soil  used should be a compost of good  friable .loam .with an admixture of  decomposed barnyard manure, or leaf  mpufd and sand in such proportion  that it .will not set hard. Sow the  seed .thinly'! and. evenly, cover lightly  with' soil .and give a good watering  The seed should'germinate in about  ten .day's," and", Jro'm this ..time on the  plants';shoui'd,have-as -much air as  can. safely be.given to ensure" a good  stocky growth.' When' the first rough  or true, leaf appears, which will be  about fourteen^ days after germina-  , tioh, the seedlings should' receive  their'first transplanting into flats,  about:'two inches' apart each way. Tlie  so'irfor'itliis 'should' be much' the  same as'that in which the seed was  lsown,"but hot quite as fine. Shade  lightly for a day or two from bright  sun, but .'do .not coddle unnecessarily. Do not overwater. See that the  roots get it-only when needed.  By May 12 th the plants should b:>.  ready for their second; transplanting,  this time into the, cold frame.    Pre-  par't'a-.'site by   treading a    piece of  ground firm.    On this place the box  of your frame and,   introduce    three  inches of good soil, consisting of two  parts loan and one part rotten manure.    Make    moderately    firm    and  set" your plants in  this    six    inches  apart each' way,  Shade  is necessarv  for a day or two.    Remove the lights  entirely on all favourable occasions.  Safeguard at nights by adequate c -v-  er'ihgs.   Pinch out all side shoots    as  they appear.  .The field position    should, if possible, be one sheltered    from    rough  winds'," but open to sun and air. Here  the'plants.,should be   ?,et as' soon as  danger-from��������� frost is    past.    Lei the  rqws be II inches    apart,    with    tiie.  riants 12 inches    apart in the rows.  By pushing a spade'.under the. plants  it;'will be found that they'will bring,  away all the soil in-'the    bed   -with  tli'erii, and will receive but   little,    if  any,, check.    Stake with short stakes  ���������^two feet is ample, and give    their  first tie as    soon   "as    planted.    Tlie  first truss of .bloom   will    be in evidence at this date aiid should be   retained.    Once a'   week go    through  your plants    and    remove   all   r.ide  shoots, and distorted blooms as.  the  latter'only .produce    cull fruits.    As  sob,n as the second truss of bloom is  visible*'p.ihcla" out the terminal point  of;'your plant, leaving one leaf, beyond the. second truss.

If irrigation is practised so  much the better, as by a regular supply of moisture you will be able to  reduce cracked fruit to a minimum.  Ripe fruit may be looked for early  in August," and tlie"plants, if reasonably well cared for, should, in a fair  season, yield from two to four  pounds of-ripe fruit each.

In further proof of the statemeut  that very little snow has melted, the  remark has been 'made that at the  present time the riveris lower'than it  has been for several years.  A-special report to The British  Columbian' from Ashcroft states that  the river there.is rising very slowly  and that the" nights are still very-  cold, indicating that there is as yet.  little run-off.'. The anticipation there  is that if hot weather comes and  continues for any time, very high  water should be almost sure to fol-'  low.���������Columbian. -  The long expected entry of British  Columbia farmers into politics has  arrived at last. The manifesto proves'  ' very definitely that its trainers are  well aware of what *-.they are doing  that they recognize the seriousness of  tlie movement and that they are absolutely conscientious in their work.  The tentative platform which the  public are invited to support is well  drawn and built and covers a'multitude of topics and problems in  which all farmers" are most keen"y  interested.  Just what reception the new party  will receive at the,hands of the public  it is impossible to predict as British  Columbia is entirely unlike any other  province of the Dominion in its population and public psychology. New  articles, new ideas, new things generally, have a harder row to hoe  here than elsewhere. British Columbia is peopled by a staid race which  is little given to change . and it is  .predicted that eventually there will  be a relapse or a return to the two-  party 'system.      '  In this connection, it is maintained that if the Conservative party were  headed by,a more popular or a more  acceptable leader in the eye,of the  public, the new farmers' party woii"-."  not and could not be possible; persons who argue along this line are inclined to look upon' the.farmers' political movement in the.Province as a  break in the Conservative party and  a defection from the -Conservative  ranks arid leadership; they also believe that eventually the movement  will have the effect of forcing.the  Conservative party to drop its pres-.  ent leader, after'which fusion of the  Farmers' and Conservative parties  will be possible ".under, the; old hatcif.  but dominated by the, Conservative  farmers who. are ,so, prominent,in,the-  present movement.���������Ex.

According to these  authorities,1 in .previous    years,    tiie  foothills were usually bare of snow,  o������; nearly so, by the    end    of April.

On Sunday, May. 7th, he    was  on duty as usual.   Hepassed Deroche  on time 21:22. It was two miles.from  Deroche to Nicomen, and no stop was.  made at Nicomen unless flagged. On  Sunday's run no stop   was made   at  Nicomen- station for passengers, but  a stop had been   made at ��������� Deroche.  Asked what    preparation    had been  made for stop at Nicomen.    Heshuit  off the steam after starting the train.  Was going at usual speed.    He was  going approximately "about ten miles  below the schedule, about 20 to 25  miles an hour.   The whistle had been  blown when he came in sight of the  station, which   was about .2000 feet.  The first'indication.he had of an accident was a sound and a"   jar.     The  sound was like a   boiler   shot, or   a  cylinder with rollin'g tubes.    His attention was taken with nothing else  except the engine.    He thought that  he might have struck a~ hand car or  an auto. He immediately shut off the  steam and put on , the    emergency  brakes.    The emergency meant    ten  per cent, braking power to the ordin  ary braking  power.    The train ' was  stopped in about 500 or 550 feet; He  then went back to the.rear of    the  train.    An auto had been thrown up  against the end of the box cars on the  passing track north of the trai.n    He  saw five bodies between    the    main  track and' the passing track.      Hon.  Dr. Sutherland was on the'train and  lie examined the victims of the'���������-accident.   There was just   a flicker ..of  life in the Pentland girl���������as it were  just gasping.    A stretcher was gotten  and she was taken to    the    baggage  car, after the train had   been backed  up.   The bodies were all   placed   in  the same car.    The    wreckage    was  pushed further towards    the passing  track.      Tlie flag was called in arid  they started for Mission City.  The engineer never had any  trouble at this crossing before. There  was nothing that governed this crossing in the regulations that he kn������jw  of. This finished the Coroner's 'examination.  Witness "was then examined by Mr.  Grant of .Corbould &,, Grant.,. He  was examined from .'many view  points, but stated thatias long as tho  track was clear and the yard clear  he (the engineer) did not look out"  into the fields for rigs, autos1 or any  other thing. He thought that turning the curve the light would be  trown out into the field and sweep  where   the   auto  warmtweather becomes general,   this,  increased' amjoiiht of snow will melt  very rapidly with the subsequent re-  came through, but .his,,,duty, was  to  see that' the track was clear arid that  was what the light was for.

He had been  over the run once since ,the accident  but could not give tlie exact position  of the cars.in the Nicomen yard.  M. M.' Graves then took charge of  the witness after adjournment. It  developed that coining round the  curve that the head light would be  showing' light in tlie field in line  with the- dwelling���������at the furthest  point. The distance from the station  crossing to the " platform would be  about 500 or. .600 feet.. Trainmen  however counted measurement by  coaches. Tlie fireman started to  stoke up just about opposite the station. He would look first to see if  the track-, was clear. , After- the  steam was shut off the wheels of the  engine would,make many revolutions  before'the.steam hi the engine would  be entirely exhausted, and it would  be then that the breaks would get in  .their work.

Alter    the    train    had    turned    tho  curve he had again started io fire as  he had put on only a small firo before. . Tiie light would    strike   ovei  into the field,  but after turning the  curve it would go straight down tho  track. ���������    When  he looked down the  track it  was  perfectly " clear.      He  could see .considerable    -ways ahead.  Yes as' far,as Nicomen station.    He  bad nothing to do with    the whistle.  lie thought at first they had struck  the wrong switch and he started  to  look for a place to get off the engine-.  When tlie train'began to slow down  he knew they were not off tho track.  He could see,nothing.      He saw   the  wreck about five minutes after, tho  train stopped as. he had to attend to  the engine afer the engineer had left  the train. . Then he went up the track  beside the bodies'.  Examined by Mr. Grant, the Witness stated that he did .not  know how.long the box cars had remained, at" the crossing.  Cross-questioned by    Mr.'   Greaves  he. stated-that he,could hot see the  gate at night time.  j Mr. George Washington Hatch, C.  P. R...conductor,.had -been employed  by the C.'P. R. since' 19 02, and' re:;  cjently   on   the   Kettle   Valley   train.  Stated.that when he heard the crash  he thought that peraps it was a tor  I>edo that had gone off       He was in  the second car from the    engine   at  that time, and he   liad    feit no jar.  He-felt the .brakes go into emergency  Heard tho whistle blowing, and the  b'ell ringing.'   They had    picked   u >  passengers at Deroche, but   none   at  Nicomen. According to his' judgment  the-train was going about 20 miles an  hour and maybe more.    He saw tli3  engineer coming, back- when he got  qff the train and asked what was the  ;.matter:    He said they had struck an  automobile at the crossing. " 1 had a  .look at them and came to. the conclusion they were all dead. I undor-  jtand the  Hon.  Dr.  Sutherland had  pronounced them all dead but I did  iVqt ask him.    I met A. Deroche and  lie knew all the victims and I took  down the names' from him. We bacit-  'M up and loaded the bodies into the  oaggage car.  .���������   .Cross-examined by Mr.    Grant    he  <!tated that- the responsibility for the  ;Iook out was with,-the fireman and  the engineer.  f Cross-examined by Mr. Read wit-  nesfl^-.tated he never head of an engineer who did not blow his whistle  at crossings unless he absolutely forgot it.  To M. M. Greaves witness.stated  there was fully fifty feet between the  cars on the south track.  .' Charles Lovedale, who is section-  .nian on the track from Nicomen west  heard the train whistle in the usual  way. Was first at the wreck. Saw Oliver Deroche at 7:15 at brother-in-  law's place.  Cross-examined by Hamilton Read  witness' stated that deceased Oliver  Deroche was not in his usual health.  Cross-examined by Coroner Stuart  witness stated that he thought Oliver  had a few drinks. You could not say  he was Intoxicated. He was walking  around. He had a. bottle with him  then. I tasted it.    '  To Mr. Grant witness stated he did  not see Deroche take a drink.  :i  The jury after a short time brought  in the following verdict:      We. your  jury find the Mrs. Macdonald and son [  Miss Pentland, Oliver Deroche, Bert ]  -.Gregory "and Harry Lobb met'their*  fteath accidentally on Sunday May 7-h  :1.922 at about 9:25 p. in. at Deroche  farm crossing west of Nicomen station in a collision between an auto  in which they were,riding and the 0.  p. R. west bound train No. 11 and we  exonerate the   trainmen    from    any  blame whatsoever.;',  We add as a rider the suggestion  that whistles of all trains should hi  sounded when approaching all farpi  or private crossings; and we also- suggest that' all crossings be.left clear  of all cars for a space of 100 feet on  each side of the crossings.  ft  Statistics recently compiled, show that British Gplumbia  lias more telephones to.population than any other province oi\Canada.

Members and delegates of the Abbotsford Board of Trade to the number of nearly thirty journeyed io  New Westminster last Friday to  attend the forming of the Associated  Boards of Trade of the Fraser Valley.  ��������� Friends of Mr. Weatherbee, Jr.  will be Pleased to learn that'he is  progressing favorably since undergoing an operation in the local hospital.  An automobile body that has. lost  its lustre, the paint allowed to become cracked' and the rust of body  metal exposed, is in tho same'/class  with the slovenly appearing man  with clothes in need of pressing and  runover heels on his shoes.  The ways and means of maintaining a bright shiny coat for your car  have been pointed out in a statement  of do's f.nd dont's by the Chandler  Motor Car company. ,  Proof that the average car owner  is not familiar with the proper way  to wash his car and .care for- the  "finish is supplied by the pig proportion of "shabby" looking cars .. that  may be seen on any street, road or  boulevard.  The Chandler statement follows:  "There is a proper time to was'i  an automobile and the work should  be thoroughly done. If mud is allowed to dry on the cair, it is harder  to get off and stains the varnish. Mud  should never be permitted to romain  on a car longer than absolutely necessary, at any rate, not iovor night. All  mud contains, alkali and in some  parts of'the coutry is almost clear  alkali. Alkali bus the same relation  to varnish as muriatic or nitric acid  has to^steel. The antidote is water,  plain everyday water right out,of the  tap.  "If one expects to keep a-'fine car  looking fine, he must be willing Io-  flush off the mud at night no matter'  how late it is. Tire work need nv.  take more than half an ' hour and  can be thoroughly done in (he morning.  "The chief things to guard against  are the excessive use 'of soap,- using  water with too much force, and  washing the hood before it is cooled.  "In"the old days, no- coachman  would, permit a fine carriage to go  unwashed, no matter how late he  came in to tho stable at night. You  must-treat an automobile the same  way if you - reach the standard oi  the old-fashioned coachman: '  "There are two things that should  be remembered. First, that soup,  tended to cut grease will attack-varnish if allowed'to'stand ,011 the car,  because oil is an important part of  varnish. Second, hot water -takes  the lustre from varnish.  "First of all, a car should not' lift  washed out in the sun, because the  sun will dry off the water too quickly, leaving water marks;- choose a  shady place with plenty of light!  "Dissolve a little   good automobile  soap in a pail of water so as to make  a soap.solution. Have a soft carriage,  sponge ready.." Start with the right"  hand front wheel and under side of,  the fender and that part of. the "chas  sis nearby.    Let the water, flow fi-oni  j the-hose" in a gentle stream so . tha^  it will carry about   six    inches from  the end-of the hose.      Go ' over the  'wheels,"etc, first with water    from  a hose.-   Most of the mud will    come  off.   There may be   road oil or machine oil, which requires soap.      In  that case put some of the soapy, water  on these parts, oopping it on freely.  VAfterthat has': been done start  right ih with a hose and sponge and,  ���������wash it off. Don't let the-soapy water-  stand more than five minutes on the  varnish. Now wash off thoroughly  with clean water because - all of tlie  mud and grease should have come oCf  by-'this time. Leave it alone to dry  That completes the right-hand front  part of the chassis and the same  work should be done on the thr-.i  other wheels and adjacent parts'. That  completes the work on the chassis.  "Take, another clean sponge and  with the water still- flowing gently  from the hose start at the' left-hand  front of the body and flow all tho  dust off. There will, be no need for  soap because machine oil or road oil  is never spattered on the body.  "After flowing the   water on,    g^  over the entire body   again with    a  hose and- a- wet sponge and wash it  Go entirely around the car, including  the top of the fenders to the left side,  but don't wet the hood; it   may   be  still warm.  ���������'"Now all- the dirt has been flowed off and the    sponge    should.  Ih  squeezed as dry .as possible, and ail  the water remaining    on mouldings  or in-crevices   should-be picked   up  Wet the    chamois    thoroughly    and  squeeze it as dry as'   possible.   Then  whips off all the water   on the body,  This will get it perfectly diry.  "After all this is done, wash the  hood and the top of the radiator.  There may be some spatters of machine oil on the hood, and if there  are, use a little soap locally, washing  It off soon after it is put on. In any  case, don't let the water stand more  than five minutes on the hood, because it has become heated by tiie  engine. The heat penetrates ihc  water and the lustre will be damaged. The reason the hood is left until the last is so that it will cool off  as much as possible. It should finally be dried with a chamois like the  body.  "If you have trouble drying the  body with a chamois, ask some old-  fashioned coachman how it is done.  There is a little trick to it, but it it-'  not difficult when the trick is learned." ���������   .

The  funeral was held to Musselwhite Cemetery on Sunday, Rev. W. Robertson  officiating.  The deceased was sixty-five years  of age and is survived by a widow,  four sons and one daughter.  Mr. C. S. Richmond, New Westminster,, well known to the residents of  the Fraser Valley, having been in  business'in that town for some years,  has consented to take charge of the  Grocery department at Whitchelo's  store. /  There are so.many different, phases  of work to be considered in connection with the planting    of a garden  that one needs to . have   a thorough  grasp of the proper procedure.-   The  first operation to be conducted when  weather conditions are right,    is the  ' preparation of the soil..  Where    the  soil is of a   sandy    nature-,    there is  Utile danger. ofMnjuring its physical  make-up, but if    the soil    is of clay  texture, working while too nibistwiil  cause puddling which would render  thejsoil lumpy for that season. However,    the    cultivation      given    the  garden prior to    sowing    the    seed  should be thorough in every respect,  because upon this  tillage    will    depend, to a very great degree,'the success -until the last week of June.  Regarding the sowing of the seed,  one must be careful to regulate the  depth in accordance with the season  of the year. During the early part of  (the season, shallow planting is essential to quick germination, but as  the season advances and the soil becomes warmed to a greater depth, it  will be found necessary to increase  the depth in the ground to which the  seed is placed, bearing in mind, of  course, that large and small see is  must be planted -in depth in accordance with their size.  Whether the garden be large or  small, the ambition of every gardener should be to obtain the most from  the given area. This can be "done by a  system of. double cropping, or- catch  cropping, using such quick maturing  crops as radish and lettuce. The  early maturing crops -are sown between the rows of cabbage, cauliflower, tomatoes and potatoes, or ae  markers in the rows with the seed of  slow germinating sorts such :as parsnips or beets, and are ready for use  and gone before the standard crops  require the space for-their development.  A few suggestions    regarding the  miode  of  procedure     in    connection  with the    growing    of   successional  crops might not lie  , amiss.    In    the  first place, let us consider peas. The  first early sowing should be made using a smooth seeded variety such as  Alaskan or Early Morning Star. This  type'of pea can be sown    very early  when conditions    for    the    wrinkled  sorts would be entirely   undesirable.  It may be necessary to make a couple  of sowings of the smooth sorts before  it would be possible to sow the-wrink-  led peas.
