Tickets--at White Bros/drug  store,  Cobalt. Seven years ago last  March,the writer stood one night  waiting the arrival of the transcontinental train from Ottawa to  North Bay. Before him lay tbe  expanse ot Lake Nipissing, glistening in the moonlight. Beyond, one was led to believe, lay  an interminable stretch, of rocky  mound, omnipresent lake, and  muskeg���a land more barren and  hopeless than a desert���its furthermost limit, a frozen waste.  -An old timer of the Boundary  returning from there and arriving in Greenwood this week tells  a-different story���a story, part of  which every one knows���the story  of Cobalt. The Ontario government seized the idea of throwing  a railway across this waste perhaps to Hudson's Bay. The railway cut through an area bearing  silver and today there are 1,500  men working in the mines within four miles of the town of Cobalt.  "One of the ironies of the situation .is that in the Cctbalt cotjn-  try today it is acreage that counts  in sizing up a claim," said Mr.  A. Harry Hook, formerly assayer  with the B.C. Copper Co. "Within* the silver bearing area, and  ^rith-ore consistent with the general s,howings, acreage is considered one, of the best bases on  which to size up a property."  The Nipissing bas about 800  acres, the O'Brien 160; while most  of .the- other dividend-paying  claims, tne La "Raise," tHe McKrn-  ley-Darragh, Buffalo, Coniagus,  Silver Queen and Hudson Bay, all  have about 40 acres. Among the  good inines besides these are the  Tretheway which is said to be  looking good and the Crown Reserve, one oi the best mines in  the camp which was opened up  only before Christmas.  People going from here to Cobalt have to change their method,  of mining. All the work' done  there so far has been above 250  feet. The veins vary from one  inch to two feet in width, the-4  average vein being not more than  six inches wide. In develop! ng,  a crack of Cobalt bloom, or oxidised quartz is always considered  worth investigating as stringers  along the surface often spread to  a foot in width. So far most of  the nuggets carrying such high  values in silver have been found  within 25 feet of the .surface-' The  veins themselves are found to be  pretty continuous with very few  breaks and first-class ore although  the percentages vary a good deal,  carries from three to five thousand  ounces of silver to the ton -with  nickel and cobalt rangirig around  ten per cent. each.  Development work is done by  running paralell trenches from  seven to 12 feet deep down to bed  rock, crosscutting, and then prospecting about every creek. This,  trenching must be kept up systematically all summer, the ore  blocked out and reserves, of ore  got on hand. This is the great  need of the district. . ���  ;��� None of the ore is treated at  Cobalt yet, although eventually  this will be done. At present,  mpst of it is treated atx Copper  Cliff, near Sudbury, at the Del oro  smelter, in North Hastings  county; in Ontario, and in New  Jersey. The haulage is too great  for, it to be handled at Trail. No  method, however, has yet been  found for saving all the by-products, the arsenic, tue nickel and  the cobalt in the-ores, and for the  man who does this, .here is a fortune in store. -  Four miles from Cobalt is the  t��wn of Haileybury, which is  largely residential. It is on th e  shores of Lake Temiskamiag,  and is a fine townsite. Cobalt  itself, for law and order, is a  model town, and under the ad-  Speaking in Spokane after his  return from thp Boundary, Jay P.  Graves, general manager of the  Granby Companv, referring to recent improvements at the Granby  mines and smelter, said that they  represented au expenditure of  $500,000.  " The additions and general improvements made, and in the  course of completion this year,  are all in the line bf decreasing  the cost of operation," said Mr.  Graves. "We have built a new  dust chamber of steel in place of  the underground dust chamber,  The new dust chamber is entirely  above ground and is provided  with'an endless chain system for  conveying the dust to one" end of  fthe chamber, where it is collected  to be converted into briquets for]  resmelting. Other improvements  include steel -buildings .over the  furnaces and blower rooms. An  addition to the concentrator building has been made! and new air  compressors and a converter have  been installed. The number of  crushers has been increased from  two to four. Each of, the crushers h,as a capacity of 15,000 tons  of ore in 10 hours.  " Although the copper market  is not strong, the large amount of  our tonnage enables us to realize  a profit. To maintain a profit  after figuring the outlay for operation and fixed charges, we have  found that it is necessary to make  every improvement possible to decrease the cost of production, and  it is for that reason that the improvements have Seen made."  Deatli of Mrs.' Dowdimr.  The death of Mrs, Emilia  Dowding, which occurred at Spokane on Friday last, removes one  of those brave women who came  from the best homes .6f-England  to the fringes of civilisation in  British Columbia in the early  days. During the visit pf the  fleet at Seattle, Mrs. Dowding  contracted a severe cold which  developed into erysipelas, ending  in heart trouble. Her death occurred after^ a brief illness at the  home of G W. Sansom, of Spokane.  Mrs. Dowding was born in 1852  on the island of Malta, where het  father, Major Pettendrigb, was  commander of the British garrison. When her father was ordered to British Columbia in  charge of the sappers'and miners,  which were the first English  troops to be stationed in the  province, his daughter accompanied him. Later she married  judge Haines, whose estate in the  Okanagan valley is famous  throughout the province. After  his death, the widow returned to  England, where she was married  after a time to Captain Dowding,  a retired army officer, and after  his death she returned again to  British Columbia. ���       ���  , Mrs. Dowding is survived by  two sons and three daughters:  Val Haines, of Penticton; Sherman Haines, of Seattle; Mrs. R.  H. Parkinson,of Kelowna; Mrs.  Dr. White, of Okanagan; Mrs.  Gardom, of Vancover, -and her  father, Major Pettendrigb, who  lives in New Westminster, enjoying good health in hit 82nd year.  The remains of the deceased  were taken to Osoyoos, where the  funeral took place on Wednesday,  aud was largely attended.  COUNTY COURT  ���-���'.' Docket at County Court before  Judge Brown was rapidly thinned  on Tuesday and Wednesdav morning.   The results were as.'follows:  Stankovitch vs. .MeEwen���-An  action to collect $i00 damages  caused by the bite of a dog.  Non-suited, costs to defendant.  A.S. Black for plaintiff, J. P.  McXeod for defendant.  Rising vs. Providence Mining  Co.���An action to collect $200  wages.    Settled out of court  Madden ys.

Graham, Baug and.Skene against  the Sudbury Mining* Co., for  wages, will come before the court.  COUNCIL MEETING  Roads Must Be Gazetted,  ministration of Mayor Lang is  taking up vigorously the matter  of municipal improvements, hitherto somewhat neglected.  But north of Cobalt, and at the  end pf the T. & N. O. Railway,  there is a large clay belt which is  going to make splendid farming  country. The elevation is less  than-on the height of l.ind along  the north of Lake Superior, and  the climate is warmer and more  moderate. Tbe Grand Trunk Pacific cuts through this belt and  will, no doubt, open it up very  rapidly. *' Every bit of that land  will, in the future, be good country," said our informant, and so  the unparalleled resources of  Canada are shown up apace.  In the case of McBride vs. the  Crown, an appeal against the decision  of Henry Nicholson, J. P., of Camp  McKinney, upholding- an action for  trespass  against  David McBride, of  Bridesville, His Honor, Judge Brown,  yesterday delivered an important judgment. It has been the custom throughout the province for the Assistant  Commissioner of I^anda. after conferring with the superintendents' of  roads, to decide What roads were nec-  e-jaarv.-arid to construct them, resum-  in**r, at their plea-tire, wherever necessary, possession of land which has'become private propert-jr in order.to do so.  The appellant in the Case had fenced  off a piece vof road, near the Rock  .Mountain': roW^wl-Jch:i.tiad\beeh-;t��wilt  over his land with his permission, by  one Sohweers, and which in the building of a road connecting the. Brides-  vil'e-Osoyoos road with the Reck  Mountain road had been simply taken  possession of and incorporated in tbe  road by J. R. Brown, Assistant Land  Commissioner. The case was complicated because this piece of road made  connection with the Rock Mountain  road on which the government had  spent money and which had been Gazetted by the government prior to 1905.  An action for trespass for so obstructing the public highway had been allowed by the J. |P. before whom it  came. The argument centered about  Sec. 87 and Sec. 88 of the Land Act,  1908. His Honor held that it is incumbent upon the commissioners to have  roads Gazetted before private properjy  can be so taken and the roads really  become public highways. The decision  is particularly important inasmuch aa  it will make it more" difficult for injustice to be done to landholders by  M. P. P.'s disposing of the monies  voted for roads in ways that shall react to their political advantage rather  than to the general good.  Council meeting on Monday  night was attended by Mayor  Bunting, Aldermen Gulley, Fleming, Sutherland, Meyer and Mortimer.  A six-inch, valve was ordered  for the extension of the water  main on Government street.  The City Solicitor was instructed to notiiy the Phoenix Water  Supply Co., Ltd., that the council expected them to repair the  damage done by the bursting of  lheir dam on Marshall Lake, to  the Providence creek main and  property.  The City Solicitor was to be  consulted by the Mayor and Chief  of Police re collecting the regular license fees from the Anaconda Brewery and Smith & MeEwen, whose businesses were  drawn from within the city limits.     ;.

Having accomplished all this,  the Council adjourned to meet  again on the 6th of July.  MANAGER FOR  DOMINION CO.  During an electrical storm last  week, the two big 700-horse power electric motors at the Granby  compressor, at Phoenix, were  shot out of business by a severe  bolt of lightning. The lightning  arresters and circuit breakers designed to prevent such occurrences were unable to cope with  the force of the electrical current, a great deal of the coil in  one of the motors being burnt  out. The motors were out of  commission for three days, power  being obtained'meanwhile from  the Dominion Copper Co. ��'  Electrical storms are very serious occurrences to the mine and  smelter managers of the district,  owing to the practice of the South  Kootenay Power Co.,  which refuses td supply power  when electricity is in the air.    In case of  an electrical storm, not only the  compressors at the mines, but the  converters,   and   even the blast  furnaces, are left  entirely without power.    It is said to be quite  possible to equip the plant of tbe  South Kootenav Power Co. so as  to place it beyond the influence  of electrical  storms.    Surely,  if  this is so, something ought to be  done to'make the mining industry  of the Boundary District free of  such serious handicaps as these  intermittent tie-ups become.

Jas, McCreath, of Greenwood;  was a visitor, in camp Monday.  Dr; Spankie was in camp last  Thursday on, his usual weekiy  visit. -  " Fourteen muckers were laid off  at Denoro last week owing to the  temporary closing down of one  of the furnaces at the Greenwood  smelter, and consequently the  shipment from Denoro mine is  not so heavy this week.  H. Wright, of the Wright Investment Co., Vancouver and  Fernie, has been in camp several  days. He claims his visit to  Denoro has been fruitful, as he  has sold 10 or 12 lots at Burnaby  Heights, New Westminster, to  some of our Denoro citizens. This  firm contemplates opening a district office in Grand Forks in the  near future.     ,  Denoro was en fete on Wednesday evening, the occasion being  the wedding of Miss A. Bergman,  of Denoro, sister of Mrs. Axel  Gustafson, of the Pacific Hotel,  and A. Jensen, of Phoenix. The  Rev, Mr. Venables, of Greenwood, performed the cereinont.  The young couple were serenaded  in good style and reciprocated by  treating the boys weli.  The last week has seen the resumption   of  operations by the '  Dominion Copper Co.  mines and  on Sunday, their 750 ton furnace,  the largest in the Boundary will  be blown   in.    H.   H.   Melville,   ,  acting president of the company,  arrived in Greenwood on Friday  last and on Monday night,-M. M.  Johnson,    consulting*    enginee r  came to Phoenix.   Men were im-  mediately put   to   work   at. the  Brooklyn, the Rawhide, the Sunset and the Mountain Rose.  With the arrival of the officials  came the news that P. F. Roosa  had been appointed manager  to  succeed W. C. Thomas, whose resignation   was   forwarded  from  Salt Lake,   Mr. Thomas  having  decided to accept auother   super-  intendency,   it   is understood in  one of the large properties,   controlled by the  Newhouse people  n Utah.   Mr. Thomas  has hot  yet returned to the Boundary and  further details of his intentions; '���  are not  available.    Mr.   Roosa,;:  the new manager as is well known  in Greenwood has been Mr.Tham-  ias' chief of staff for the past two  years and is thoroughly familiar  with every part of the company's  operations.   Mr. , Roosa is, undertaking a difficult'task considering  ttie remarkably low price of copper and the many difficulties under, which the low-grade ;Boutid-  ary^ropertieis^^are ncHv^bp&ratingL  Into his new duties he carries  with him the confidence and support of the Boundary.   It is generally felt, that his close touch  with the interests of which he  has been given complete charge  will make him the most valuable  man the company could get to ���  fill the vacancy caused  hy Mr.  Thomas,'  resignation.   The   announcement of his appointment  was made officially yesterday by  Mr. Johnson and Mr. Melville.  Mr.Roosa has appoiuted as general foreman of the smelter John  Cawile, who is a former foreman  and a man with whom he has  worked previously. The officials  of the mines have^ all been retained.  The engineers had'first intended to start the two small furnaces  at the smelter, but have decided  to install a thoroughly up-to-  date electric feed process before  operating them. The new big  furnace installed last year and  equipped with the most modern  system of feeding, will be blown  in on Sunday. *.  All the mines are now in operation saye the Idaho, where the,  installation' of an electric tram  system connecting it with the  Brooklyn-Rawhide is being considered.  The operation of the Dominion  means employment within a fortnight of nearly 300 men. It  means a large increase of payroll for the Boundary and a busy  summer for Greenwood.  CARD OF THANKS.  Death of Infant Daughter.  The infant daughter, Ella, of Mrs.  (Conductor) Dann, of Kelson, eldest  daughter of C. H. Archibald, died at  the.hqme of Mr. Archibald in this oity  on Monday evening.

The Major has himself withdrawn his charge before a parlia-  mentary committee. There are  now, perhaps, a great mahv more  people who will agree with Mr.  Duncan Ross' opinion of the whole  matter, given in Winnipeg in  April.    Mr. Ross said:  "I have had an opportunity to look  into the question, and if any investigation be held it will only go to prove*  Major Hodgins' incompetence as a dis  trict engineer. The great desideratum  is to get the railway built. If Major  Hodgins had continued as district  engineer, issuing orders and making  classifications, while absolutely ignorant of the conditions in his own division, no progress could have been  made. There is nothing .unusual in a  man who has proved a failure to attempt to fasten responsibility for such  failure on some one else. If Major  IloJgins had accepted the advice of  some of his best friends he would not  have called attention to his own incompetency, but since he- is evidently  determined to make trouble, he should  be given every possible opportunity to  demonstrate that; while he may be a  good trilitary man, as a district ea-  .gineer in connection with the construction of the national trunsconti-  nental railway he proved himself an  absolute failure."

But ifc must  not be suffered to become overwhelmed with hangers on who  are interested only in their own  prosperity. The Liberal has a  good end in view and we wish it  all success.  Speakiug of the elections in  Quebec, the Canadian Courier  said that the leader of either  party had offered a platform that  would usher in tbe kingdom of  heaven. One needs only to read  the Republican platform of the  Chicago convention to be quite  sure that the kingdom of heaven  is already at hand under the Stars  and Stripes, that T. R. is a modern symbol of the Deity and Big  Bill Taft a perspiring angel,  fighting back the hosts of iniquity.'  *#��-# #���������������� o����*-t***-��*�� **�����->�����*(-��  !

Qraves, general manager of the Granby Co., inspected  the inines at Phoenix last week.  The Phoenix City band serenaded  the big chief and roped iff $20.  -The gross value of the output  of the Consolidated Mining &  Smelting Co, Ltd., of Canajda,  for nine months of its current fiscal year, that is, from July 1,  1907, to March '31/1908, was $4,-  178 78b, or $100,000 increase over  the entire fiscal year of 1907.  The Kootenay Liberal made its  first appearance ou Friday last.  The Liberal is a weekly. It will,  perhaps, grow to a daily. The  Liberal, as its name implies, is  frankly a paper devoted to the  principles on which Liberalism  rests, and there are none better.  The Liberal will'not only try to  promote the interests of the party  professing those principles, but  it will aim to keep that party up  to the mark, aud the force of the  principles at high tide. It states  its own position thus: " The Liberal has avowed its belief iu and  adherence to the principles of  Liberalism; but it has not necessarily pledged itself to support  all Liberals. Apples, on the  whole, are good things, and for  their existence the Kootenay has  much to be thankful. But a  ���wormy apple is a vexatious nuisance. Kven so, is a wormy Liberal. In the eyes ol" this journal  such an one is a nuisance, and  ���will be treated accordingly."  The Kootenay, in its first issue,  has adopted an attitude which we  think gives it a distinctive place  in Britibh Columbia journalism.  It openly accepts the party system ol government. It detatches  itself from party ism wheii party-  ism becomes a nuisance. And we  think this position wise. No one  has yet advanced any  argument  Major Hodgins has entirelv  withdrawn his charges. No  doubt many of the Major's friends  in British Columbia will regret  very sincerely the sorry spectacle  he had made of himself. Sometimes politicians of the voluble  Foster-Fowler type can try their  experienced hands at the scenic  wonder of making the air, black  like thunder, while overhead the  sun is still shining. But this is  an ethereal accomplishment aud  the public knows it well, These  men avoid definite statements.  The Major's little episode has  had rather an unfortunate ending. ' The Ottawa correspondent  of the Toronto Star says that  "Shakespeare tells the story in a  phrase���the engineer hoisted with his  own petard. The engineerthe bard had  in mind was probably Major Hodgins,  of the Rocky Mountain Rangers, who  saw some service in South Africa, and  some more on the National Transcontinental Railway of Canada.  "As an officer, the Major maintains  the best British tradition)-- His accent  and manner would fit in at the Horse  Guards or the Army and Navy Club.  His moustache is copied from the heavy  dragoons. Like many of his bro'.hers  in arms, he.believes that there are lots  of things no fellah can be expacted to  nnd-rstand or remember. He does.not,  however, wear a monocle. H��> favors  a pince-nez, on the ground that two  eyes are better than one when it comes  to keeping tab on the G. T. P.  ���STOOD ON HIS RIGHTS.  "No longer ago, than last April the  Ma)or was district engineer in charge  of Section F of the G. T. P. He ran  it like the Roman centurion, saying to  oue go and he goeth, and to another  come and he cometh. The Major had  strict ideas cf discipline and stood on  his rights Things began to happen  which the Major did not like. He made  same crimson remarks on the subject  of classifications, and presently the  Major got from Chief Engineer Lutns-  den what military men know as a furlough. It was to last a month, at the  end of which time he was to look for a  new job.  "The Major took the reverae of fortune as a brave soldier should. The  next place he was heard from was Vic  The first reading of the Act  extending and increasing the'  bountv on the lead production of  this province was passed at Ottawa Saturday. Louis Pratt,  who bad returned to Nelson only  a couple of days before, "gives  a great deal of the credit for the  work- that has been accomplished  at Ottawa to Diincan Ross." The  request of the Associated Boards  of Trade, which took the lead  bounty question up last winter,  was that the period for, the assistance to cover should be extended for another five years, the  first bounty being provided for in  1903; and expiring this year. The  government has not only voted  $500,000 a year for the additional  period for the assistance of this  industry, but has left the $1,750,-  000 not used of the money voted  previously, at the disposal of the  authorities, for disbursement.  The request of the Boards of  ���Trade: that the bounty should be  available up to the time when the  metal bad reached ,^18 on the  London market, is also inco'rpor-  ated in the bill.  The assistance thus given will  be a*wonderful boost for the lead  industry.    It means new days for  the Slocan, for in addition to the  i  bonus, Mr. Pratt points out that  radical changes have come over  tbe  treatment of  lead-zinc ores  whereby zinc values are able to  be saved, and properties which  never  were   worked   before, can  now be worked with success. Mr.  Pratt and J. L. Retallack spent  several months in  the East this  year   in   connection   with    the  bonusing bill.  CoDper Cutout for tlie World.  According to the' valuable an-  nu'al statistical return published  by H. R. Merton & Co., of London, the aggregate output of all  the producing copper mines of the  world in  1907 was 716,435 tons.  . -        y.'iy'^.  This represents an increase of  only 2,335;tons over the total for  1906. Not since 1893���14 years  previously���was there a similar  check to the producing capacity  of the mines.  Here\are the figures of productions "and increase, in tons, for  the past eight years:  Output.

Mexico also  decreased its output by 4060 tons  to 56,565 tons. Together* these  two leading copper mining countries ot the world had a lessened  output of 18,620 tons in 1907, as  compared with 1906.  The largest incieases in 1907  were: Japan, output 48,935 tons,  increase over 1906 6,195 tons;  Australasia, output 41,250 tons,  increase 5,000 tons; Russia, output 15,000 tons, increase; 4,510  tons; Peru, output 10,575 tons,  increase 2,070 tons.  Spain and Portugal, Chile,  Cinada and Germany each increased their output slightly in  1907 over 1906. The total increase of; output by tlie, eight  principal copper countries just  named was, 19,375 tons. Deducting from this, the American and  Mexican aggregate decrease of  18,620 tons, leaves only 775 tons  in the productibn of the ten leading copper countries of the world  for the year .1907;  During the years 1900 to 1907,  the aggregate output of the  American mines has fluctuated  between 57 per cent, and 67 per  cent; of the world's annual copper-supply. The percentage was  65 per cent in 1906 and 63 per  cent in 1907. The lowest was 57  per cent., in 1901, and the highest was 67 per cent., in 1902.  Japan and Australasia may be  expected to increase still further  their production during 1908;  while Rhodesia will soon join the  ranks of copper-producing countries, extensive deposits of copper ore having been discovered in  the territory north of the Zambesi river. Copper mining in  Russia is now also extending,  and with an increased output of  50 per cent,, Russia has risen to  ninth place in the list of copper  producing countries. The four  countries showing the largest increases in 1907, however, only  contributed 115.760 tons to the  annual output, or 16 per cent, of  the total annual production.

Stirling, of Kelowna, before the Northwestern Fruit  Growers' Association,  gives, the  [i-first steps in building a successful orchard: /  Any   fruit   grower   on    being  pointed out an apple tree, can say  vat once whether it is well shaped  or   badly   shaped.    The   general  characteristics -of such   trees as  I would be called  well  shaped  by  Ian experienced fruit grower are  iound to be somewhat as follows:  The maiu branches spring from  jthe trunk at a good broad angle.  They do not -spring opposite to  each other but are distributed up  /and down the -trunk. They ere  evenly, placed around the tree .and  do not interfere with each other.  There is a definite centre stem  [, from Which they spring and which  extends above thte main side  branches.  ��� Such a tree is of* tbe  strongest  possible frame.    It will carry its  proper load of fruit without propping* \ There is no fear of its Deng, split dowu to the grouud and  ^ruined by an over weight of fruit  or by wet snow or any other  cause. The greatest damage that  will be likely to happen to it'will  - be the breaking of a bough, an  injury  which can easily be re:  :, paired and the loss replaced *with-  % in* a stiort time.J If any main  branch is overladen and breaks  off, the injury to the trunk will  be' comparatively Ugh 1; there will  bet splitting. Always fresh shoots  can b�� grown from the centre to  replace broken branches. After  [- /all the main stem of the tree is  the tree; keep that intact and the  "tree is still there to grow auy  branches itam that are required.  To illustrate the advantages of  this form it is only necessary to  thrpk of another form which is  very common. That is the tree  where the centre has be<*n cut out  and never replaced, where the  branches all spung from about  the same point as the fingers  grow from the palm of tbe hand.  Such a tree,whten. tbe day of trial  comes, either from an overlqad of  fruit or from a fall of wet snow,  yes, and sometimes Toy reason oi  its own weight, will get tired and  lie down, splitting right to the  ground, so that there is nothing  left from which a new tree can  be grown.  Now, shaping a tree is not the  whole art of pruning, and by  shaping a tree is meant tbat treatment of tbe tree in its early years  which definitely determines its  general form; a tree may be well  shaped in this sense, yet at the  same time woefully in need of  cutting and clearing out, but this  latter branch of the pruner's art  cannot be dealt with adequately  iu a paper, and it the first only  which is tbe subject of this present effort,   '  The object of this paper, then,  is   to outline  a method, and to  state a few short rules, which, if  followed,  will  ensure every tree  growing up in a correct form-  The rules are three in number,-  viz.:���  1. Keep the leader.  2. Have bnt one leader.'  3. Make the leader lead.  The explanation of these  and  the method of carrying them out  in practice is as follows:  The tree is planted as a vaar-  ling whip and cut back to about  three feet, or a little less, from  ground with the object of forcing  buds into decided  growth so that  i  ^ifafW'A'Xtf&M Bg^y-regSfflFH 5&I  ��� #  JP5<fl>ffl@��ir PffipglFd  -,**  444  Boundary  Creek times  is   the Pioneer Weekly  of the. Boundary Creek  Mining District.  I  I  T The Times has the  most complete Stock of  Type, Inks, Paper, in  the Boundary.  "TfThe Times is improving1 its stock, enlarging  its circulation, widening  its interests every  month. .'-..������  there may be something to work  on the next spring. The first real  step towards shaping the tree is  taken the spring after planting,  preferably wheu the buds are just  beginning to show green. It will  be found, then, if the tree has established itself, that some of the  buds near the, top, very generally  three, have made a strong upstanding growth, coming out  from the stem' at a very acute  ancle, lower down shoots will  have growij from.the leaders, and  usually have not made such a  strong growth. It is ;from these  later that the first tier of branches*  may be chosen.  Leaders���Of the one, two or  three strong upright shoots near  the t��p, select the best and most  upright as the leader and sacrifice the remainder. If they are  retained with* the idea that they  will become satisfactory side  braucbes, amendable to discipline, it will be found to be a mistake. They will not do so, but  will for years be a source of  bother, competing continually  with ,tbe leader for supremacy.  Cut them out, leaving but the one  leader.  ���Side shoots���From the other  shoots lower down select, if possible, three side branches. These  must be evenly distributed around  the tree in a horizontal direction.  In a perpendicular direction they  must be well separated, the angle  they make with the trunk should  be large, nearly a right -angle. If  there are not three shoots +hat  satisfy these conditions then leave  only two, or one that does; better  one "right tban three wrong;  plenty more shoots will grow daring the" current year to fill any  vacancies.  N. B..���Certain varieties - of  trees; for instance the Northern  Spy, have shoots which almost  invariably spring from the s^etn  at an acute angle. In such cases  it cannot be expected that shoots  will be found to satisfy the third  condition mentioned above. It is  as well, then, to use a spreader to  cause the shoot to grow in the  desired direction.  Cutting back���Having selected  the shoots which are to remain,  and removed the others, cutting  them off close up to the stem, it  is necessary to cut them back. It  will be observed that the buds on  the upper end of a wood shoot  are better deyeloped than those  near the base. The object in  ���view is to give the leader the  start and to have it keep"ahead  of the rest, therefore do not cut  it back too much. Cut it amongst  those buds toward the upper end,  perhaps one-third of its length  down from the tip.  In regard to the side branches.  ���Perhaps amongst - those retained one or two are weak, and  one or two are strong; these latter, perhaps, nearly as strong as  the leader. It is they which require to be watched or they will  start racing for .supremacy with  the leader. Puu them in their  right place right away. Cut  them back to within three buds or  so of the stem. The buds here  will be very much backward, and  by the time they have be,en fcreed  into growth the leader will have  shoots,several inches iu length,  and there is no fear that the side  branches will catch up.        <  Next year.���The following  spring the process will be much  the same. The leader will be  treated practically as the whole  tree the year before. The lower  tier of branches of last year will  probably have made two or more  shoots. Almost invariably one  will be enough to* leave, and that  should. be cut back among the  well developed buds toward the  extremity or about onerthird in  from the tip, The next year will,,  be time enough for these side  branches to have side shoots.   .  Third spring.t���The next year  will be a repetition of the first  and second^ ;except that there will  be an additional tier of branches  to prune. The treatment of this  lower tier, this year,will be somewhat similar in principle to that  of the leader the first year. The  cutting of the preceding year will  probably have resulted in two or  three strong shoots growing from  the end and one or two weaker  shoots growing further in on it.  Of the strong shoots at the end  but one should be left, as there is  room or not.  After this, it all has gone right  as it will have done with a normal  well growing tree handled as suggested, the tree may be-considered to be formed aud it is usually  unnecessary to continue cutting  tjack the leading shoots: The  leader will be firmly established  and the tree will tend to keep the  form in which it has been trained.  Subsequent shaping will simply  consist of thinning out superfluous shoots and branches, keeping  a just balance between' all side  Doughs.  The idea to keep in view is to  give the leader the preference  when cutting out; that is, if a  shoot from the centre is crowding  a shoot from a side bough, it is  the latter that must give way.  Should the shaping have been  neglected iu the earlier years, or  should an injury have happened  to the leading shoot, it is often  found that one of the side'branches has come ahead of the leader  and is competing with the leader  for supremacy. There are three  things that may be dene, aud one  of them must be done, if a well-  shaped tree is tbe result.  1. The side branch may be cut  off"  2. The tree may be cut off immediately above the side branch  "and thus the latter becomes the  leader.  (When the side branch has  grown practically as large as the  rest of the tree above it, one of  these two things must be done).  3. Check the side branch back  hard by cutting itoff immediately  above one ot^ its own side shoots.  The stronger it is lhe lower down  must it be cut.  This latter will be best where  such cutting is likely to be efficacious in putting the side branch  in its, place; it will, however, in  any case, have to be watched the  next season.  Always the side branches must  be headed in id this way if thev  show signs of coming ahead of  the leader until thev are finally  induced to take a subordinate position.  It will likely now be found that  there are too many branches, and  that they are crowding each other;  no matter, it 'gives a choice, and  if any have to be sacrificed their  existence will not have been  wasted, they will have assisted to  thicken and strengthen the main  stem.  It is not claimed that there is  anything new in this paper; it is  simply an attempt to state in  clear and concise language a  definite system which at any rate  has the merit of producing surely,  aud without waste of time, energy and plant growth, the remits aimed at. The attempt  seems to be justified, because this  part of the orchardist's art has  not often been stated either  clearly, concisely or completely,  and it is very necessary to have  clear and definite ideas on the  subject.  With a clear mental picture of  what is needed in regards to shaping a tree, the pruning of young  trees is a rapid and sure operation. The tree is pruned and  shaped mentally as the operator  \7alks toward it. A few deft cuts  with a sharp pair of shears and  it is done.  Lacking this clear idea there is  indecision and doubt. The indecision of the first year produces the  puzzle of the second year, which  in the third year becomes an insoluble problem, or rather one  only to be solved, by. sacrificing  h'alf or more of the tree and  thereby wasting the greater part  of the energy ot growth that the  tree has put forth in the past.

The City Clerk reported on  Monday night that several citizens had remarked to him that  the city had a good man clearing  the stones from the streets. Apparently there are two ways of  doing even this simple thing.  It is estimated that.it will take  $645 to repair the damage done  by the washout on 'Providence  creek. The road washed out is  not a government road, though  outside of the city limits. Neither  is it in its right place. The road  will, probably be diverted to follow the street lines.  Greenwood has a chain'gang  for the;firsfe time in an age. Two  men were put * to work on the  streets Tuesday, one of them under sentence for ten days for  drunkenness, and one for 30 days  for begging on the street. They  preferred fresh air and hard labour to.cohstant incarceration.  The committee in charge of the  celebration request the citizens  not to set off firecrackers during  the Calithumpian parade. The  explosion of the firecrackers is  apt to be the cause of accidents  through frightening the horses.  A general compliance with this  request is looked for, and will be  appreciated,  A petition is being: circulated,  and has been largely signed by  citizens of the West Fork and  merchants doing business there,  to have the mail carried direct  from Carmi and Beaverdell to  Midway, instead of to Rock  Creek, as formerly. The change,  if made, will make a saving of a  day in the delivery of mail. It  will make Midway, rather than  Rock Creek, the starting point  for the mail contract for the West  Fork.  The Greenwood Orchestra will  take over the Auditorium on July  1st. It is their intention to make  a number of alterations in the  seating and generally in the handling of the building that will improve the Opera House 'considerably. The executive of the organization has been drafted as  follows : Manager, J. F. S. Gil-  lum ; secretary, A. D. Hallett;  treasurer, C. A. Thomas. The  reserved seat plan will in future  be in the care of A. Logan & Co.  At Monday evening's meeting  of the celebration committee, a  special committee was appointed  to wait on the business men to  have the stores closed at 10 o'clock  on the morning of July 2nd, in  order to let. clerks and business  men free for the celebration  ac  tivities. This was the method  adopted last year, and will, no  doubt, be followed again this  year. A committee composed of  I. Crawford, E. B. Dill and J. D.  McCreath. Jr., was given full and  complete charge of the grounds  on both days of the celebration.  The committee will have its final  meeting on Monday night next.yy  Fireworks 'are essential to.a  good Dominion Day. Buy the"m  from the well assorted stock of  J.

Quite a large number of  Masons came down from Phoenix  for the occasion.  Everyone interested in cricket  is invited to attend an organization meeting in the City Hall tonight at 8 o'clock.  On Saturday night the Boys  Brigade was entertained at the  home of Mrs, S. Oliver by Mrs.  Oliver and Mrs. E.O. Boak. The  Brigade appreciated very highly  the kindness of the ladies in furnishing them with such a delightful evening, and no member  "of the Brigade more so than Instructor Hargreaves, who is in a  position to know 'of how great  value such things are in keeping  up an esprit de corps in the Brigade. It's a very serious matter to  attempt to satisfy the inward  cravings of 35 boys when ice  cream is in sight, and Mrs. Oliver  and Mrs. Boak not only did this,  but provided a program of songs  and music. It is understood that  other ladies in town are 6ohtem-  plating- a similar reception for  the boys, which certainly is very  brave. . '  Flags of all sizes' and descriptions at lowest prices.

The illustraten songs by  Marion Jarrett, " There is no time like  the right time to spoon," and " Faded  Flowers," were rendered in a very acceptable manner and well received.  Jarrett De Kota, an illusionist and  magician of note, gave one of the best,  acts in, magic ever seen here. The  pictures were' up to the usual high  standard of the Clark Co., the Runaway Horse being positively exciting  and rousing the audience to enthuisi-  asm.
