How Not to Plant Trees  Thac it is better to plant fruit trees  carelessly than carefully; that they grow  better, in fact, when the earth is rammed  around them as in fixing -a fence-post���������  this heterodox dostrine is put forth by the  X/Ulte Ul  CSULU1U UUU   JU7.      \J .    JLTlUlLOriHg  in a recent report cf investigations at  the "Woburn Experimental Fruit Farm.  Says Mr. E. J. Russell-, reviewing the  report in Nature (London, February 25):  '���������It is an article of faith among us  that frait trees must be planted in a certain special way if suocess is to be obtained. The soil is properly prepared, a 1  large hole is made, wide, but not deep,  the roots are carefully spread out in all  directions and arranged near the surface, with a slight upward bearing at  the, ends. The eoU. is filled in with many  precautions. Small quantities of the  finer soil ara.iirsc worked in among tha  roots, hollow places caused by archings  in the stouter roots aro Jilled up, and  then the rest of the soil is j.ufc in;  trodden cnefully down, aud the whole  left to tho compacting influence of the  raiu. The treo is supported by stakes  until it is safficienty firmly established.  ���������'All this, according to tho report before* us, is precisely wrong; it is all  exactly tho opposite to what ,it should  be. Tho propor way to plant a treo is to  make a small hole, to doublo the roots  up anyhow nnd stick the tree in, throw  in tbe soil, aud ram it down as hard ns  if ono woro fixing a gate post. Tho experiments scorn convincing enough.  They havo bGen made at Woburn, Hor-  ponden, Bedford, various pla* es in Cams  bridgeshiro, ami in Devonshire; 50 per  cont. of Ihe sets showed in favor of  ramming, only 27 per cent, showed no  difference (i.o,,, all tho elaborate detail  acturingCoLuf.

It makes  no difference by what-criterion the trees  are judged; planting in this new way  gives better results than planting in the  orthodox fashion.  When a new fact is established by  scientific expejimeut that no longer fits  in with the old practical formula which  has hitherto safEced -.o co.er. 11 cate3,  there is invariably a cry raised about  the antagonism of theory (or science)  and practise. This has duly happened  in the present case; - But no practical  man has been ableio give any reason  for the faith that is in him beyond the  fact that it is sanctioned by established  |custom; these appear to be the first'  sarious experiments on the subject, and  they do not seem to be vitiated by any  constant error. ��������� Examination " of the  trees shows that ramming has led to  copious development of iJbrous roots.  Direct experiments showed that the  fibrous and small roots produced in the  nurserv before lifting play no great  part as roots daring tho subsequent lift.  of tho tree; the important point is to induce fresh root-formation, and ramming  does this more rapidly than the orthodox method of plantiug. No harm  was vdone, aud sometimes even good  resulted, when tho old roots wore deliberately damaged before planting.  "Tho reports issued from tho "Woburn Fruit Farms ore always interesting, because they deal with fundamen-  t 1 problems of universal importance,  and not laorely with looal matter?.  Nj fruit-grower could afford to make  experiments himsolf on 'anything like  tho scalo oh which thoy aro carried  out at Woburn, nnd fruit growers everywhere aro under an obligation to tho  Duko of Bedford and Mr, Fiokofiug for  investigating thoir problems for them  and publishing tho rosuits iu so accessible a form."  man of Copeland, is a fugitive from -justice, with murder on his soul.   The man  is a Swede by birth, and at his saloon at  two    o'clock   yesterday   (Wednesday)  morning, he was accused by one of his  boarders  of  being "rolled" by  him.  Carlquist, so 'tis said, shot the man dead  and dragged his body to a slough near  the house.   But he was observed, and in  .'.answer .'to the demand to surrender he  fired upon his pursuer, emptying his revolver, but with no effect.   He then disappeared, and later, when a search was  made of the saloon, another victim was  discovered drugged in one of the rooms  The wires-were worked to all outlying  points, but before information was received at. Port Hill, he had been seen  there as if heading for CreBton. Mean-  while Prov. Constable Wilson, of Ores  ton, was notified, and he is keeping a  sharp lo-k-ont for the quarry.  The description of the mm is as follows : John Gariquisfc, ealoon man, age,  35 years, weight 165 ib., height 5ft. 8in.,  light complexion, heavy, light moustache, light hair, Swede by birth, wearing black Fedora hat, ordinary light  checked coat, black pants.

John  Carlquist is still at large, but the posse  are hot on his track. He was traced to  the bush going north from Port Hill, and  then-again *to the,'railway tracK, two  miles this side of the boundary line, It  is thought he is not carrying a gun as the  automatic pistol with which tho deed  was perpetrated, was dropped by the  fugitive in his flight. Carlquist is considered a dangerous man, but when he  made his precipitous flight he wns not  prepared for it. It is considered by the  police that he will exhausC himsolf in  tbo bush, a? he is not a man used to the  timber. Two patrol men arrived at  Crestou just after daybreak this morning. These have warrants, and they  straightway conferred with" Prov,- Con.-  'Wilssn. These are the men who passed  the night in the bush and found tracks  of the fugitive until darkness overtook  them. A pbsso has now.left to shut off  egress by the Grow pass, and it is obvious that unless ho beats across the  flats to the heavily timbered Com Creek  neighborhood^ it will bo but a matter  of a fow^days bofore he is cornerod.  Dotnils of tho crime haye now oomo to  $3.50 for an outstanding account. He  laid down four one dollar bills, and as  ho did not receive any change he remonstrated with the proprietor, who, it is  alleged, drew an automatic revolver and  pointed it at the man's breast, saying at  the same time: "Take your change out  of that." The man fell mortally wounded.  Later, when ail was still, the'murderer  dragged the body from the house and was  observed trying to hide it in & slough.  Then he was tackled by another man,  and the murderer emptied his ghn on  him, but without effect. This all  happened about two o'clock in the morning, and the culprit realizing the hein-  ousuess of his crime, fled to safety. In  his flight he dropped his weapon.    ,  When the wounded man revived he  gave the alarm, but by this time the  fugitive had secured a lead of about  three hours.  ' It is supposed, that the fugitive had  about $1,000 in cash on his person.  Sheriff Thos. Plunkett and deputy  Th03= E. En:tss left for MoNeillie and  Erickson at 9 o'clock this morning. All  the camps around the district have been  notified, and a description given of the  man. 1 he Indians are also on the keen  look-out  ing compared to tho end to which they  aspire, To increase tho horror of the  crime, the murderer tried to hide his  deed in the still waters of a slough near  tho house.  ANOTHER ACCOUNT ��������� J - .  f Communicated)  ~.The law-abiding"citizens of Port "Hill  are in a flutter of excitement owing  to the receipt in the town of the report  that a dastardly and bloody murder had  bem committed in the little' town cf  Ccpsland, not many miles from our  midst. From the meagre details at  hand we construe the following faots:  That the bartender of the saloon, in a  sudden fit of passion, or in a vain effort  to hide his scandalous condnot.in trying  to rob one of his guests, shot and sent  into eternity another of those unfortunate victims who fall to the jealousy  hatred, apdmalico of^thoso to whom the j    Tbe iooal baa6ball team ia practising  lifo of a fellow human "b-einri*��������� ������������*H*������it-8idaonsiy tor tho return matoh ;'with"  to hide his crime in the dead waters.of a  slough, has been captured.   For a man  of his stamina, it is wonderful the miles  he travelled.   First he hit for the Canadian side, and it is thought that in his  frenzy he imagined he was immune from  American justice by crossing the border.  Then he doubled bock and hit for the  nearest town going south on the American side.   All efforts were concentrated  on his tracks across the Canadian side,  and traces of his movements were lost  about a miie-and-a-half from Fort "Siil,  but the officers who were in charge of  the case at that end hurried at daybreak  to Creston, and in a few hours a cordon -  was spread.    It now appears that the  fugitive had double 4 back to tho American side, but the wires had been tapped  everywhere and keen eyes were watching for him. N  About two miles this side of Bonner's  Ferry there iB a big stack of poles and  also several stacks of cordwood, and at  a late hour last night, Marshall St. Peter  was lookings with several other members of the posse, told off,to sesure the  fugitive's arrest, fof traces of his man.  Panting, all in, and dead to the world,  the fugitive lay sleeping   alongside a?  woodpile.   Awakened, he waa apprized  of his crime, and the warrant was'produced.   Ho was then taken to Bonner's  Ferry, where he was formally charged.  This morning, manacled, he wasjfcaken  by train to Sand Point, where he Will,  be arraigned on tne capital charge.    '"'���������',   '  Carlquist, after committing tho crime,'  travelled two miles across the border,', -  and then returned   and struck south,'  travelling   altogether   about SO miles.  He is not a strongman, and it is thought  little short of marvellous that he trav- .  elled so far.   It is said he was up all" .  the previous night, and there is small  wonder that he was physically exhausted  when his pursuers captured him.  The   murderer,    Carlquist,   isf well   ,  known in Creston, "and every movement  in the man hunt hss been keenly oh- '  served.

At the present  :time we are well looked after by our  and all,of us.   It is the custom, when  Dr. Rose is advised that contagion is apparent,   that  he nominates   the local  practitioner as his deputy.   Now, to our  way of thinking,  that   is abf������urds for  the very good reason that the local doctor-might   have  his hands full,   and  besides, jsofsssional men do not always  like to be at the beck aud call of another  doctor who has been fortunate enough  to secure a  Government  appointment  which he cannot fill.   We are not inferring that Dr. Rose is incompetent.,  * that is furthest frcsn our miiid but we  j do think that the growing importance of  j this end of the Kootenay warrants the  appointment of a medical officer who  can act on his own initiative.

Jiox oa  and it might, as it often happens, be  extremely difficult, owing to lack of  telegraphic facilities for him to moke  the necessary arrangements before the  dread outbreaks have advanced to a  stage of epidemic.  Tho growing importance of Creston  and district warrants the appointment  of a medical officer, and that Bpeedily.  We aro fortunate in having a good medical man here, but that is not enough if  his hands are tiedy If we were in our  dootor's shoes wo would  be sub. for  no man, beyond   the   bounds of professional courtesy.   There is no money  in that kind of thing for him.   He has  gained tho confidence of the people of  this district by results, and wo reiterate  that thero is something rotten with tho  organized   system when   an outbreak  occurs that tho local man has to wait  for several days before he receives instructions from a doctor who might be  hundreds of milea away at the timo of  notification.

Cool evenings, however, are a persistent factor for the  enjoyment of repose." The early springs are  vey favo able fo gal e ning and budding  fruit trees. The autumns are very long  and the weather is of an ideal Indian summer. Violets and wild strawberries bloom  as late as November.  Soil  The soil is an alluvial* clay on a clay" subsoil. This does not apply, howeve , 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 plenti-  ! ful, one being thirteen miles in length. Soil  to suit any. kind of vegetation may be secured in this valley.   ������  While there is a splendid local demand  for products, the principal markets for the  Creston district are the big centres of, the.  CrOws* Nest Pass and all cities as tar east  as Fort William and Chapleau; and as far  north as Athabasca Landing. We are absolutely ihe closest producing point to" the  markets, therefore we receive higher prices  by reason of our products reaching the mar=  kets in shorter time and better in condition  than can be done by any other district.  ^Transportation  Creston is well favored in the matter of  transportation. The C..P. R. passenger  trains call here twice daily, going cast and  west. The eastbound passenger, and ex-  press passes through here at ia.iap.rn.,  therefore allowing berries and fruits to be  picked in the forenoon and shipped in a re-  frigjeiator 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.  // you are looking for a Location  Where you can 'Build A HOME  3Cnoiit?i  ?'i  flbroQtess  Beautifully situated south of town, quite close to business centre; one minuted  walk from the depot; three minutes from public school; overlooking -the  beautiful Kootenay Valley.

In addition to this we raise hay  aud all kinds ot vegetables, apples, peaches,  pears, plums, cherries, nectarines and grapes  as well as all the smaller bush fruits, which  grow in abundance  I  The progress of the Fruit Growing Industry of the district has been very rapid.  Five years ago there was  150 fruity trees.  shipped to the Creston 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 in.
