In the  afternoon he was taken to the nearest  points of interest that it was considered"  would assist him in making deductions  for data for his lecture upon ������������������ Irrigation," as applied to the Creston district.  Mr. J. F. Rose, president of the local  brance of the E. K. F. I., occupied the  ohair, and after a few opportune opening  remarks, introduced the speaker:  Mr. Ourry began by congratulating us  on our country, saying: "I had the  pleasure of driving around to-day, and  was greatly impressed with the fine soil  and tho groat advancement which hod  boon made during tho past f6w years.  Ho said that it showed a high order of  intelligence on the part of the ranchers,  and a keen interest in their welfare.  With this they should bo able* to ovor-  oonie any dillloulty that might arise.  He said that lie mi;*lit oompliinonj; us on  one thing, and that was that ho novor  saw better homes. Thore was not one  poor looking plabo, and ho was not at  all surpiisod nt tho splondid muetor now  facing hlih.  Mr. Ourry remarked that ho was uot  an extraordinary speaker, but was a  farmer. Ho had boon twenty years in  B.O.   Ho said ho had boon Bant hero by  iho crnvni-iimnnf-. to  onninV nn TfflffiiHnii.  v,       -   - -���������       -     - .  ^    . ... ,.     , . KJ.   Iu somo of the valloys of Oregon, whoro  thoy havo twioo or thvoo times as much  rainfall as thoy havo horo, they have  found it ujjoful to lay out irrigation  diluhes ou account of tlio dry noason. Iu  Italy, whore thoro nro 00 Inchon of rainfall, thoy uuo irrigation in winter time,  tho noil bolng saturated to a groat depth,  and tho water loft uutll tho warm ooa-  son.   Tlioy ovou drain largo rivers and  turn thorn into dltohoe for this purpoao.  Ho said that OroHton u fortunately  Hituutod i������i having good pail at considerable dopth,   Irrigation in tho drr bolt Is  OHsontial, and at Kamloopu, whoro thoro  Is only nlno or ton Inchon of rainfall, it  ia uooo'wsary,   Bosidos that, it would bo  a very heavy uudoi'Ukiiig.   Tho wator  would havo to bo brought from Awow  Orook, aud he didn't think thoro was  enough water anyvrhew to Wiiraut any  largo sohomo of Irdgatlon,   Owiug to  tha condition of tho oountry ho said ho  oouid uoo ivjooaiuiyuu it.   rtthaptt iator  go. it would be more feasible. What he  did advocate however, was a .thorough  system of oultivation. If we follow this  system w8 can grow all without Irrigation.  The cultivation of the soil must not begin in the spring, -but m the fall. Plow  the soil to a good depth so that the rain  will penetrate, and the subsoil become a  resorvoir and retain all the moisture for  the summer. If you want to get a good  crop next summer, get your ground cultivated this year. If yoa wait until the  spring you will lose all the moisture  that has gathered from the winter's rain  and snow.. In potato growing, deep  cultivation in the fall and harrowing in  tJ-o spring, to retain the moisture, is the  proper method. Drill the potatoes with  a piow and harrow level and continue  harrowing* until potatoes are well up;  then cultivate with a cultivator as deeply and as close to the plant as possible.  It will be noticed at this stage that the  roots do not extend lateraly, and no harm  is done by deep and thorough cultivation,  but as the plant spreads on the surface  it will also spread its root system at the  bottom, so you must cultivate shallower  so as not to interfere with the growth of  the rest? and continue until in full  bloom. At this stage in the growth of  the plant 'a Usge quantity of moisture is  required. Neiver hill potatoes up, as any  tool you may use to do it will cut off  millions of the roots that are essential to  the growth of the plant. Give level cultivation until potatoes are ripe.  Mr,. Ourry then went on to speak on  tho advantages of Oreston as a shipping  point for berries. He said there was no'  better place in B.O. for shihping, as we  mere near th* markets and right on the  line.  He said he had a plantation of his own  in the Thompson valley. He struggled  along without irrigalion. It might be  all right in May and June, but in August it was all as dry as possible. .He  said he learned early in the game to conserve his moisture. Talking about strow-  fa(jrriesf;Mr. Carry remarked that "the  old plants were not half as vigorous as  young plants. Therefore, if you keep  your patch young you will have befcfer  results. In gtrawberry culture he advised the planting of a new field every  spring and plowing the old ones up, as  it was cheaper than trying to keep the  weeds out of tho old patch,  Q. Would you put clover or ryo into  the land before planting?  A. I would sow clover as o humus  crop and plow it in before it formed a  heavy root system and disc tho ground  and cultivate the ground the following  summor, and plant the spring following.  You cannot saw olover the summer previous to planting. The some applies to  rj-o. ���������  In answer to a question ho said the  hedgerow system ih this district would  bo all right, as it would enable the grower to cultivate n larger amount of the soil  between tho rows and conserve more  moisture, ^ Tho same rule applies to apple  and other trees. Constant vigilance is  rormirod.in cultivating, to qonsbryo tho  molflturo and destroy tho woefls, unless  in the" fall the trees would put on too late  a growth and go into winter immature.  Set strawberries about eighteen inches  apart. Cultivate as close to the plant as  possible, until runners come, then put in  straw mulch. Always plant strawberries  ?������, 4-Ti,o- anrincr   nv\A Ar. >.n4- 1..n������^. ���������*.*-������ ^->"l������^.������-  in too l|ing. If one of the old plants is  dug up it will be found that there are  one or two white roots and that the rest  are a black mess going into the ground  Then if a young plant is dug up the'difference will be quickly noticed. These  have all white roots, which are the ones  that feod the plant. Consequently a  young plant must have more nourishment than an old one, and gives better  results. Plants were liable to be smothered by putting on too much or too eloss  manure.  One of the chief difficulties of the  strawberry business is the pickers. It is  usual to pay 1 or 1}4 cents a box, but  sometimes 2 cants a box is paid. Boys  can pick 100 boxes per day.  Mr. Curry then gave a few hints on  the planting of trees. He said that the  ground should be kept well open in order  to be in good condition for planting, the  (rlUUO   UJ.  sap  planting.' It is better to plant trees in  in the fall, if the sap is out, that is to  say, if they are dormant; but if the trees  are not dormant, then it is better to wait  until spring before planting. Trees that  ore brown-and dead at the top are frozen  and in'order to remedy this it was necessary to cut back until good wood is  reached, even if yoa have to go as far as  the grafting to do so. - The question of  giving sufficient water to the plants was  answered.by���������saying that water must be  given to the plants by artinoial means or  otherwise.  It was asked whether it was advisable  to tread down the earth round a tree  when planting, tho. speaker answering  by saying that it was most decidedly so,  and that after digging the hole the top  soil to be thrown in and worked around  the roots. While filling tne hole, continue to tread down the soil until within  six inches cf the top, when it must be  filled with water. After the water is all  absorbed- fill in mors top soil. Asked to  how deep a tree should be planted, he  replied: "As deep as. the graft, or so that  the graft is just covered by the earth."  He said he had at one time planted 500  trees and a large bunoh of potatoes in  the Thompson valley, having no idea  that the water would dry up. Ho however cultivated it well, the water going  away on the 37th of Juno. The trees and  potatoes grew splendidly, tho trees making a four feet growth. Ho afterwards  went away, returning on the 17th August, and was greatly surprised to find  both troop and potatoes were flourishing.  The reason of thie was that during his  absence tho cultivation had boon kept  up, but ou examining the ground it was  found that tho potatoes had taken all tho  moisture thero was in the ground, not s  drop being left in tho soil. On returning  from another trip it was found that out  of the 600 troos that wore planted, only  ISO woro alive. All this booause of the  wator tuiton from tho soil by tho pota  toes.  Q. Why do yon advocate cultivation P  A. Because it retains the moisture ia  the soil, retaining a dust mulch, which is  essential toy the growth of the plane  Particularly does this apply to a- seotion  like this vr hsro irrigation is set p?sofeis*d-  Mr. Curry's strong point seemad to be  conservation of moisture by constant  oultivation. He said that ia the growing of huge fruits he supposed it was the  aim of everyone to grow a fine younjr  orchard. He told a story as an iUustraV  tion: There was a gentleman in the  Thompson valley, -who had a little orchard of about two or thres seres. This  gentleman was of an ezpsrhaentai turn  of sassd*.. His fesss T?sslS sot ^ro^v  without irrigation. He got a fine mellow  soil by good cultivation "km! was surprised at the result. The roots of the  trees, instead of���������-as when he nsed irrigation���������running along the top of the  ground, took a sudden turn down so that  they oould get moisture faona below.  Last summer woe th* driest ever experienced in the Tho-tnpaon valley, but the  tessa nsva* suffered in tha SeasS; is fact,  they are in a snagnificent oosditioa.  Mr. wusy wld he was a ssaiuc en potato growing and remarked that rotten  potatoes were the result of a late spring.  He said that the seeds should bs split in  two, lengthwise, and planted in drills,  not in hills, and not to t**y late seeds.  Q, Would you use a subsoiler?  A. Follow the plow with a subsoiler.  The idea is have a deep subsoil to retain  the moisture which sinks into ihe soil  from the fall rains and winter snows.  In potato growing I find from asy ISyesrs  experience that the best results are obtained Dy deep oultivation in the fall,  previous to planting, and to get oa the  ground as quickly as possible in the  spring with the harrows, to retain the  moisture which is there. I lite ���������& plani:  my potatoes by hand, as I don't like the  planter. ,1 object to the slips and prefer;  continuous rows. I plant with the drill  system and after the potatoes are planted, I harrow the ground down and, continue harrowing until the potatoes are  up. I then use the "Planet Junior" oul-  vJLvotor slid go ss deeply iu.o iuo bwu .������*���������  possible and close to the plant, because  at that stage of growth of the potato  the roots do not extend lateraly and yoa  are in danger of outting off the -roots.  Bnt as the plants spread on tho top, so  will the roots spread at the bottom. I  begin to raise my cultivator teeth and  cultivate shallower, and continue cultivating until the plants are in full bloom.  At this stage I would be onltirating  possibly two or three inches dssp. I  would now liko to give a good irrigation  but a rain would answer the* purpose  Justus well. I then continue the oultivation until ihe plants are ripe. The  potatoes should never ho billed, up. I  believe lit flni enltnve. Any machine  you would uae to hill up, suoh as the  doublo mould board plow will destroy  millions of roots and reduoe the feeding  powors'of tho plant.  E.

Ii. sits as a committee of advice to the  down, and its jurisdiction is founded  r-olely on tlie  royal prerogative.  From the beginning of our national  existence, the. King has been accustomed to act with the advice- of the magnates or great men of the realm, anil  at an early period exercised legislative,  executive and judicial authority, especially of an appelate character, from the  fhire and hundred courts*. 1 have been  una'ale to ascertain when appeals to  the Privy Comicil were first instituted,  hut there is no doubt that from the  earliest, times j-etitions for justice were  presented to tlie King in Council, especially when the courts were liable to  tie intimidated by an influential suitor.,  it being an ancient rule of our Constitution that the subject "who failed to  obtain   justice   in   the   ordinary   courts  introduced by royal proclamation in  17(!4. and Newfoundland, which is our  oldest colony. In Asia, besides - India,  appeals lie from the courts of twenty-  four separate ���������'������������������ principalities, differing  from the liom'-xiy High Court to the  Consular Court in China and Corea.  If we shoul-l now examine fhe actual  working of this .'Council, we find that the  governments of the, various dependencies  as a general rule have the power to legislate and limit the right of the subject  to cany his case, to the foot of tho  crown. They cannot, however. legislate  with regard to tho .right of the  SOVEREIGN TO I1EA.U  these appeals.    Ac- a general rule, legis-  lation  has   been   passed   re-striding    the  right of appeal to case,* whon the malu-r  controversy   exceeds  a  the   matter is   not   of  vena in value,  sufficient im-  p-*rt-aneu  to comply  with  the.  regulation  in   force  in   the   pai-lieul-u*   u-rritory   in  j which the suit is ia*! it uu\t, an appiica-  ! tion mav  i**- ma<l-e.  lo tho Coiiueil itself  -might in all cases petition to the  Kino- j U'i- -social  leave   to ap^.-al.    "fhe  appli-  iy l  to exercise his royal prerogative in hi  behalf.   As  the   Empire   increased,   this {  right   has   been   gradually   extended   to  all  the  King's  subjects.   Those  residing  in the United Kingdom have apparently  found the custom of presenting their pe  tit ions  to  the  King  ia  Parliament  the  most   convenient,   and   this   practice   is  now  confirmed   by   statute,   the   House  of  Lords   being  the   court   of  last    resort  for    the    United     Kingdom.    Tho  King's   subjects   beyond   the   seas,   c-n ,  the other hand.,   found  that  their- pets- j  lions  were   more   speedily   heard   if   ad- I  dressed  to the  King iu "Council.-which j  has thus  gradually   bceoine  the  tribuu- i  al of final appeal for India and tiie Col- j  onies.

Ho much for the criticisms referred to.  On tlie question of its political importance the Privy Council itself, in 1871, in  a memoi'jutdum, fluid:  "The appellate jurisdiction of Mvv Majesty in Council exists for tlie benefit of  tho colonics, and not for that of the  motlier coun'try* but it is impossible to  overlook the fact that this jurisdiction  is part of Her 'Majesty's prerogative,  nml wliich has been exercised for the  benefit of tho colonies 9i������r.'0 the (Into of  thoir M't'rlcmcnl'..

By ������his institution, common Ui  all  PARTS OF THE EMPIRE,  beyond the seas, all matters whatever  requiring a. judical solution may !>*.*  brought to the cognisance of one court  in which all have a voice. To abolish  'this controlling power and abandon each  colony and dependency to a separate  Court of Appeal of ita own, would obviously destroy one of the most important  ties connecting all parts of the Empire  in common obedience lo the courts of  law, and to renounce 'che last and most  essential mode of exercising the authority of the Crown over its possessions  abroad." '���������":������������������������������������'������������������  At the date of the Australian debate,  the   Government of   New   Zealand 'said'  that <:in the best interests of the Eui-  .pire', the light of appeal en constitutional grounds is one of the strongest links  binding us to the mother country." And  Western   Australia was  of  the  opinion  ���������'���������"t'liifc by the possession of ono Court of  ���������\ppeal for the whole British race, whose  decisions  are   final   and binding  on   all  the courts of the Empire, there is constituted a bond between all British people  which  should  ha  maintained  inviolate os the ke\-stone of imperial unity."  Canada  has given   many recent   evidences that she has no reason to regret  the absence of absolute  finality in th***  decisions   of  her  own courts,   and   has  many  times shown  tliat together with  all other portions of the British Empire,  her people look to the advisers-of the  Sovereign in Council in matters of tlie"  highest'moment for a breadth of decision not surpassed by that of any other  tribunal in tho whole world.  To appreciate our view of tlrtls tribunal, you have to enter into the difference of spirit prevalent under the English Constitution and others.  "'Olio of the great glories of the Tto-  man Empire was that the system of  jurisprudence whioh we know* ns the  ���������Roman Imw extended in its application  practically throughout the Empire.

In the United States Bos-ton seems to  be entitled to the credit of establishing  the first regular system of medical in-  /���������pcetion of schools. This was. done in  IBS*-, but two years before this the  sanitary inspector of New York had appointed a inedical inspector of schools,  who was probably the first medical of fleer'of the public, schools appointed in  this country.  In 18!*4 fifty physicians were, selected  by the Boa I'd of Health to inspect 'tins.'  public schools 01 Boston, lit 1895 nine  such inspectors were appointed in Chicago., In 1897 the Board of Health at New  York appointed I'M medical inspectors  for the public schooif-- with a chief ut a  salary of $2,500 a year. /  Ln lSilS the Bureau of Health of Philadelphia passed a resolution directing  that each of the fifteen assistant medical inspectors shall visit one public  school in his district each day, inspecting it according to the methods employed in Boston, New York and Chicago. Since 1894 medical inspection of  schools has been largely adopted  throughout the United States and in  some States has developed from mere  inspection for detecting contagious diseases to systems calling for the most  thorough physical examinations.  Only four general State laws provid-  j ing for or allowing medical inspections  I of schools have been passed, says" the:  Medical Record. In Connecticut in IS'.V.i  the Legislature passed a law providing  for the testing of eyesight in all the  ptiblie schools of the State. New Jersey  has ,a law which went into effect in  1003 authorizing boards of education to  employ physicians or inedical-.inspectors  of schools and defining their duties. Vermont followed in 1904 with a law requiring an annual examination of the  eyes, cars and throats of school children.     . '���������*������������������  In 1906 Massachusetts passed a law  which is comprehensive in its provisions  and mandatory throughout the State���������  the only mandatory:law of the kind in  ���������the country. It requires every- town and  city to establish and maintain a system  of medical inspection by competent  pliysieans for the detection of contagious diseases in the schools. Examinations must also be made annually by the  inspectors of all ...'the ...scholars for noncontagious physical defects and their  eyesight "and. hearing must be tested  every year by the teachers.  Without authoritative and specific  enactment the State Boards of Health  of New York, Utah and California have  caused examinations of the eyesight and  bearing of school children "to be made.  There is, so far as can be ascertained,  some form of medical inspection of  schools in.'yoguo at present in seventy  cities in the United States outside of  "Massachusetts, but the United States .is  still behind Germany, and for that matter a. number of foreign-countries in this  important movement.

Sir,���������Since you started your paper in  Creston it has been ray snibiti&n to see  some of my thoughts in priui, so please  publish this epistle. -^  Having a short time sinco enlarged  your paper from a four-page to an eight-  page edition, I believe you would be going another step in the right direction,  if you would institute a column under  the heading of "Unfinished Business."

Qliery���������Where is the  Baud? Still later, another list came  along to start an Athletic Club. Three  meetings were held this time. Query���������  What has become of the Athletic Club ?  For the benefit of Cres'ton generally,  some public spirited, men gathered together and raised money to buy a piece  of land as a bell, race and running  ground. Who is to blame, for this piece  of unfinished sxisinoss ?  Lust, but not-least, I would coll attention to tho Board of Trade.  I remain,  Yours for thoroughness,  JAMES MAOKIE.  m  m  * The progress of the Fruit  Growing In-  dustry of the district has, been very rapid'.  1 Five'years ago thereyvvas  150 fruit> treesy|  ���������K* ������������������ y      ���������   ^1    i.������r 1        '���������*.   ���������'������������������'���������' shipped to the Creston district, while in the   '  Mpisture^is plenhful   as it.rams every spi^g of I9<)8 about 48,oooVere received  month_and;is sufficient for bountiful crop of ^^^^ There were also several hun-  dred thousands of strawberry ..plants and  berry bushes "shipped in.

On   His  Journey.
The   great    American     traveller  was
looking through his  gleaming eyeglases
at the shores of the Red Sea.
"it might have been somewhere along
here," he reflected, "that Moses held out
hia big stick over the waters and Pharaoh, the Egyptian malefactor of great
wealth, came to grief." ������%
With a momentary pang of r-egret that

days, he resumed his ten mile walk up

House With a Wrong Tablet. y
A curious example of the mistakes of
history comes fropi Paris. For< more
than half a, century a house of the Quai
Conti has borne on the front a tablet
with thia inscription: "Historic Memorial. In 1783 the Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte, officer-of artillery, on leaving
the school of Briehne, lived at this house
in the fifth slory." Then follows that
the tablet was placed in position by his
Majesty Xapoleou III.  on  October  14,
1858. ,
After this great length of time it has
been discovered that Napoleon never
lived in the house, go the tablet has been
removed. Only another instance of how
our most cherished beliefs aro shattered.
