Fresh from, his labors in the Provincial house, Jas. H. Schofield was ban-  quetted by a representative gathering  of Creston men on Saturday night last.  Mr. Schofield arrived unexpectedly on  Friday afternoon, and although the  banquet was arranged hurriedly, it was  a tremendous success. Many of his  friends on both sides of the political  fence were there, but it goes without  saying fhere would have been many  more had the banquet been more advertised. Every seat in the dining hall of  the Creston Hotel was occupied., Ed.  Mallandaine occupied the chair and  Cnas. O. Rodgers the vice-chair, whilst  upon the right hand of the chairman  sat the guest of honor.  The menu was an eye-opener to the  assembled guests, all going the limit to  tuck away as much as possible of the  dainty viands provided. Messas Mead  & Moran excelled themselves. Dainty  gold-blocked menu cards were prepared  by the Review for this special occasion.  The room was very tastefully decorated  and the tables were a masterpiece of  the decorator's, art. During the evening, Mr. W. J. Downey secured a flashlight picture of the assembled guests.  : After the tables were cleared of the  good things, : the punch bowl was introduced and the toast list begun, that of  " The Eahg'"y being accorded National  musical honors. Then came the toast  of the evening,.'" Our Guest," and this  was drunk with great gusto, and the  singing of "He's a jolly good fellow "  was loud and prolonged. Thee cheers  and a tiger were then given, and when  *Mr." Schbfield'rdse to respond, the enthusiasm of the guests was unbounded.  Mr. Schofield began by thanking them  very, heartily for the splendid reception  accorded him, and then he plunged into  a spontaneous outburst of oratory that  was listened to with rapt attention and  being frequently. punctuated with applause. Ho spoke of the tplendid work  that had been accomplished at Victoria  during tl^e last session, and he paid a  glowing tribute to the members of the  Opposition benches and the Socialists for the manner in which they had  combined with the Government to accomplish good work for our glorious  province. Ho said the session was the  most amicable one in his experience,  the proceedings throughout being  marked by the absence of any friction.  Continuing he related the details of  sovoral of tho bills passed that ho  thought were not generally understood  by tho people, aud. then he touched on  tho legislation that had  with a direct local bearing. He was  loudly applauded at .every point he  enumerated. His speech was entirely  free from any semblance of egotism,  nor did any passage occur that would  give offence to any of the guests of a  different political calibre.  The speeches thoughout the evening  were remarkably good, the toasts and  the names of the gentlemen who responded appearing below:.        \  The King  Our Guest, Mr. J. H. Schofield, M.P.P.

Regulation  5 is repealed and one taking its place  provides that nursery men and orchard-  ists must immediately disinfect any infected stock by methods provided for in  the regulations, and the disinfection  must be approved of by a member of the  Board of Inspectors. No trees or shrubs'  which haye been infected may be distributed until a certificate has been  issued by the fruit inspector, the certificate to remain in force for only three  months after date. The Fruit Inspector |  may order the destruction of infected  stock and if the order be not complied  with in a specified time the work of  destruction may be done by the officials  and the cost charged to the owner of the  stock.  Regulation S is also replaced with one  giving wider powers to the inspector  over imported fruit. He or his agent  may quarantine and destroy at the cost  of the owner any infected fruit intended  or exposed for sale.  Local Company Arranging  For a Long Distance  Service  The Cre3ton Power, Light and Telephone Co., Ltd., has entered into an  arrangements with the Kootenay Telephone Lines Ltd"., that will give the  present patrons of the line a much better  service than the most sanguine hoped  for when the system was installed. It  means that the patrons of the Oreston  local system will shortly be in canneefcion  with Calgary and all points of th������ Alberta Government system, also ���������with  Seattie; Portland, Vancouver and other  coast points.  The Company is also going to instal a���������  copper-metallic system, right through  from the Alberta lines to connect with  the local system. There is another sr*  rangement pending between the Creston Power, Light and Telephone Co.  (telephone interest) and tho Kootenay  Telephone Lines Ltd., bnt this is not yet  ratified. If this deal goes throngh it  will mean that the Consolidated Companies will spend about $2,000 in this  district in the very near future. As far  as the improvement in" the service is  concerned it will mean the immediate  installation of a 100 drop switchboard,,  and all the telephones in tho town  will be placed oa a_6ingle line circuit."  The line will also be extended wesfe to  A Birthday Party will, be given in  the Mercantile Hall on Tuesday, April  20th, under the auspices of the Parish  Guild, of Christ Church, Creston. Invitations will be issued this week.

There will be an  attraotivo programme, and Jerusha Dow  will exhibit hoi* famous Photograph  Album.  J. Cosgrovo,  advanoo agent for tho  boon enaotod. I " Eokardts," was in town Monday.  A. T. Dudgeon and Fred A. Estey, of  the Yale-Calnmbia Lumber Co., ar-  I rived from the camp near town on Wednesday, en route to Nelson. Interviewed, Mr. Dudgeon Baid that at present no logging was going on, but, that  all efforts .were being concentrated on  the logs that had been cut during the  winter. The company's tug "Hercules"  has already towed some two millioa feet  to Nelson, where the company's mill was  workin** full blast. The comj'any has  now about three million feet on skids at  their own camp, and also the residue of  the timber cut by the Huseroft outfit  during the winter, which is in the Koo-  *r***n** *wv-*v\*������  /n*Unv������^ ������V������v*a������-* -m'lll'ifttia^ HPtta  railroad is being put into shape, and  several new spurs have been built.

Sir,���������I lend herewith a chaiu letter  sent out from Nelson in the interests of  the revival craze (or species of emotional insanity) which speaks for itself.  Where are Christ's teaching or  charity in this:  " 'AN ANCIENT PRAYER.  Oh, Lord Jesus, I implore Thee to  bless all mankind. Keep us from  all evil by Thy precious blood, and  take us'to dwell with. Thee in Eternity.'  This was sent to me ;��������� copy it and  see what will happen. It is said in  Jerusalem thaC he who will write  this prayer nine days to nine  friends, commencing Gn the day  received, will experience some great  joy on the ninth day, but he who  will not will have misfortune. Do  not break this chain of prayer.  Make chain wish while writing you  will be delivered from all calamities.  Do not sign your name. Make  chain among your friends for the  good of all mankind,'.  The promise of blessings and the  threat of penalties after the prayer are  in the same moral plane as the barbarous  fetish religions of the cannibals of darkest Africa,  In the course of a few weeks tho  mails will without doubt be burdened  with similar epistles. All sensible people will burn them as soon as they  receive them and to that extent stamp  out this tommyrot.  Yours truly,  ARTHUR OKELL.  advertising campaign mustbo continued.  This can bo best done through the  Board of Trade. We would suggest that  now is the appoiuted time, and would  like to see this matter taken up and  acted upon at the Board's next meeting.  T  About 55 Indians squatted on the depot  yesterday whilst awaiting the eastbound I  train, and many were the conjectures as  to their object. We learned that the  party had taken tickets to Cranbrook,  where they were going to the St. Eugene  Mission to fulfil their Easter duties, as  pre&cribed by the Catholic Church.  'i'&'iili  m  V  The Man With  A SSiiSslcr.G  About His Neck  The millstone is lack of  .special training.

Watts, of Wattsburg, B.C.,  has been doing something that far exceeds bis judicial authority. Mr. Watts,  so the report reads, recently gave a  youth tho option of a long term of imprisonment or a lashing, the offeuce being a carnal one. The youth, to save  disgrace to his parents, accepted tho  flogging, and Mr. Watts laid the strokes  on the victim himself. Wo believe that  the law of this laud is that no judiciary  less than a Supremo Court Judgo can  order a flogging. Perhaps Mr. Watts  was guided by an intuitive desiro to  make the punishment fit the crinio, but  whethor or no, lie hnH exceodod tho limit  and lie should be brought to toBk for tho  offence.

The play  is a difficult one for amateurs to tackle,  but we venture to say that the audience  will appreciate the talent unearthed.  There is no doubt but that a large crowd  will be present, and for this and other  reasons the public are asked to be seated  not later than 8 o'clock. It is extremely  tiiseoaserting to amateurs to be interrupted by late comers going to their seats  just at a time when they are in .the  throes of stage fright, to say nothing of  the annoyance to other members of the  audience.

Cool evenings, however, are a persistent factor for the  e:aj6yment of repose. The Wrly springs are  very' favorable for gardening and budding  fruit tree. . The. autumns are very long  and the weather is of ah ideal Indian summer. Violets and wild strawberries bloom,  as late as November.  While there is a sblendid local demand  for products, the, principalmarkets for the  Greston district are the big centres of the  Crows' Nest Pass and all cities as far east  as Fort William -and Chapleau/ and as far  north as Athabasca "Landing, We are absolutely the closest producing- point- to the  markets, therefore we receive higher prices  by reason of our products, reaching the markets in shorter; time and better in condition  than can be done by any other district.  The soil is an alluvial cldy'on a,clay:sub-  soil. This does hot apply* however, to the  entire valley, as the lower bench lands are of  a black vegetable mould, while the land in  the vicinity of Erickson is of a sandy character. Four-fifths of the entire valley is  free'from stones and gravel. The land is  practically level and mostly covered with  timber. Fine Government roads are plentiful, one being thirteen miles in length/Soil  to suit any kind of vegetation may be secured in this valley.  Creston is well favored in the' matter of  transportation.   The  C.  P.  R.  passenger  trains call here twice daily, going  east and  ������ West. ,, -The  eastbound passenger and ex-  a press passes  through  here   at  i2.1  p.m.  therefore allowing berries and fruits to  be  picked in the forenoon;,and shipped in a re-  f frigelator car with no further handling of  fruit until the markets  are reached.   The  G. N. runs trains  into  Creston.    The railroads pass through the Creston Valley, and  fruit may be loaded at eight points along  the line.  flbrogtess  /Iftoisture  Moisture^is plentiful, as it raius every  month and is sufficient for bountiful crops of  every description.  HJ>robucts  The famous'strawberry fields of Creston  have outclassed every 'district iu British  Columbia this year for production, 'quality  and prices. In addition to this we raise hay  and all kinds ot vegetables, apples, peaches,  pears, plums,cherries, nectarines and grapes  as well as all the smaller bush fruits, which  grow in abundance  ..megiwm  WRITE FOR ANY  INFORMATION  The progress of the Fruit Growing Industry of the district has been  very rapid.  Five1 years ago there was  150  fruity tree's  shipped to the Crestou district, while in the  spring of  1908 about 48,000 were received  at this point.   There were also several hundred thousands" of strawberry plants and  berry bushes shipped iu.   We have a rural  telephone system, which will shortly  be  connected with Nelson ' and Cranbrook, it  being already connected with Spokane.    A  system for waterworks and.also for generating electric  power  has   been  installed  at  Goat River Falls,   Electricity will also aid  in opening up some of our large mines. We  have a good (graded School with an attendance of 65 pupils, two large general stores,  gent's furnishings, Canadian Bank of Commerce, photograph gallery, 3 restaurants, 2  hotels,   hardware   store,   tinsliop, ��������� jewelry  store, 2 barber shops, poolroom, 2 laundries,  blacksmith, furniture store, tailor, building  contractors, harness and saddlery store and  two livery stables.   The professional men  are a doctor and government surveyor.  The Social advantages are, Catholic, Anglican, Presbyterian and Methodist churches,  several fraternal lodges and three halls,  ers in a thoroughly dormant condition,  -  and thus guard against possible damage'  from winter frosts.

Advice to Fruit Growers  WM������llilllli>������MI������IHW>l������l������W������������������>l^  Interviewed by a representative of the  B.O. Farmer and Fruit Grower, .Maxwell Smith gave the following interesting interview, which will bo of interest  to every fruit growor in tho province.  "My advice to tho B.O. fruit growor  is to. immediately perform tha duties  which he may have neglected during  the winter months, namely: Spray his  trees with llmo and sulphur solution, or  iloublo sfcrougth Bordeaux ra&ture, bo-  fore the buds become out; with youug  treoa less than flvo years old ho should  prune carefully, with a view to directing  the futuro shape and stylo of the troo.  In this country where tho wood growth  is no vigorous, upring pruning is practised to6 oxtonsively on bearing trooa;  bettor results will ho obtained and more  fruit spurs produced by pruning iu Juno  or oarly part of July,  "Immediately of tor tho blossoms fall  ho Bhould Rpray with single strougth  Bordeaux" inlxturo, or ouo ot tho llmo  sulphur preparations specially designed  for summer Hprayiug.

Over tho province Hurfnoo oiilti-  vafcion should be discontinued when tho  fruit begins to ripen, and in the irrigated  districts no water should bo applied  after that time. As soon as the young  fruit is formed nyBtematie thinning of  the crop should bo proceeded with. Not  more than one spooi.mon on a twig should  be loft of poars or apples and no two  specimens should touch each other.  Plums, prunes, peaohes and apricots  should bo. thinned 00 as to leave them at  least ono inch apart.
