The. sap-  port given by the press, both of British  Columbia nnd,the East, is heartily ap-  Tscifitsd."  So spoke Maxwell Smith, editor of tlie  Fruit Magazine, and manager of  the  first Canadian  Natioual Apple Show,  who arrived in Nelson on tho 22nd from  tlie coast on  a ton-day tour of tho in  terior, when he will come into ooutaot  with the fruit grower's Associations nnd  boards of.trade  in an indoavor to so-  oavo a conoeutratod off or fc from this part  of the provinoo and when he will also  endeavor to estimate, ns closely ns pos-  'eiblo, what displays may bo oxpooted  from tho various distriots.

ACTIVITY   IN   LAND * OLEARING  AND INPROVEMENTS���������BIG  INDQSTSIOUS SETTLEMENT  SOHOOL IFOR   CANTON   CITY  Canyon City, a new town and settle*  ment situated about two and a half miles  from Erickson station  and   five miles  y-rfirn Ci'eatoii is ������t& T*,ressjit ehe scene of  much activity as the many frnit growers  ^ho have purchased blocks of orchard  land from the Canyon City Lumber Co.,  which owns some 8,700 acres of ideal  orchard land at Canyon Oity, are now  in the very throes of land clearing and  improving.   The land at Canyon Oity  is recognized as being specially adapted  to fruit and garden produce.  *  Among the fruit growers who have  been fortunate enough to secure a block  of land at Canyon City and who  are  now doing clearing work on their newly  acquired property is T. H. Hickey, who  owns ten aores and W. H.  Quail, who  has another ten-acre plot;    A. R. Swanson is making a great change  to his  twenty-acre plot by removing all Burplns  timber, while A., E. Hnssock is among  those who own ten-acre plots and is clearing them.   The Westling Bros, with  thair twenty-acre plot, are doing good  purchasing fruit lands at  Canyon City.  During the recent visit of School Inspector Sullivan to Creston a few weeks  ago, that official personally drove out to  look over the situation at Canyon Oity,  and he was fairly amazed at the rapid  growth of the settlement, and he stated  emphatically that Canyon City was entitled to a school and should have one  at once.  "What company or individual ccnld do  a greater work for any district than is  at present being done by ihe Canyon  Citv Lumber Co. by their putting on*the  market choice blocks of fruit lands on  4  easy terms and thus creating a substantial settlement of'the very best class of  X? ,'  people for any country.' Mr. O. O. Rodgers, the local manager of th'is company,  takes a personal supervision of all that  goes on at Canyon City, and his big saw  mill at Canyon City gives steady employment to many of the residents, thus  enabling these people to earn good  wages when they are not otherwise em-  ployed in clearing and improving their  lands.  -At Canyon City,'Lot 118 is specially  set apart as an experimental farm. Already twelve acres are cleared. It is the  intention of the Canyon City Lumber  Co. to convert this Lot 113 into a modern experimental farm, and while it may  Wit)  .    .. 1  i\  &  *\* V"* ***        '���������������'*������ .5 "*        **��������� -*V 1 ���������*��������� "^  is that the exhibitors ci^.smp-their exhibits . directly to the CTsaindsA without  breaking bulk. ^ ", i ,%v ������*. ~y , ��������� *  ] "JChe*"management of the* show jhas  "sefected for the carldacCand bos classes  the best known comm'Sreial' varieties of  apples, la addition to the carload, box  and district displays * there are classes  for over 200 varieties iu the plate dis-  play.

They dropped  off at Creston simply to see old friends", y <  and left for Nelson on Saturday,  when  Mr. Goodeve wonld proceed to Rossland  and Mr. Schofield to his home at Trail.  It has "been about a year since Mr.  Goodeve  visited  Oreston and he was  more than surprised to see the wonderful advancement the place had made in  that time.  -On Friday evening Messrs.  Goodeve and Schofield were  driven out  to some of the fruit ranches, and on Saturday morning they drove out to seo  Block 812 at Canyon, City, where they  saw the big steam, stumping machine at    ,  w(5rk.   Tbis stumping machine, which ,  is owned by the Oanyon  City. Lumber  Co., was made by the' Clyde ironworks  at Duluth.  -This machine is reported to  be 90-horse power aud it develops 1501bs.

When Messrs, - ,  Goodeve and Schofield were out on Saturday morning  thev witnessed some  rather rare work done by this big machine in lairly tearing the big green  ���������* 1- --  stumps out of the ground one' after another.   This stumping machine recently  -.  took, put 64 stumps in just 64 minutes.   h [  Mr.'Goodeve. says that he learnt that  land can'"be,cleared" by this slumping  machine for about $85 per acre, and, in  hisi opini6n,y after seeing'-tnis machine,.  work,-it is the" only feasible wny to oladr "  laud ecivSl-edwith ordinary, ste^stum-ppi" 'J  o'f coWse, when"a%stump/fouTnor five  feet through is enoountered.lt will save *  time to use powder to it in tho first in-*^  However, for ordinary sized/,  -*���������<  credit for the manner in whioh ho is olearing hiB land.

A bit of Vienna bronze for the cabinet will please the bride who delights  in such things.  Royal Doulton plates���������to give lier a  dozen -would be io give her a present de  luxe.  ' One of the new and handsomest lamps  or electroliers will be most acceptable if  they're  going housekeeping.  And it wouldn't bo a wedding ii the  bride <Mn't get some pictures.  But whatever you give, remember that  it is the bride and the bridegroom whose  tastes should be borne in mind���������not your  own.  ODDS  AND   ENDS.  Costliness is the salient fpatuie of the  fashions of to-day, and aHhuugh frocks  arc geneioiirily decorated with embrokl-  { eries,  etc.,   the   trimmings  must   never  h.-ivii  the appeal mice of  being added as  an tifteithought, but must form au in-'  tcgral  part   of  the  sulicnu*,   says     the  Ladies' Field.    Instead of Paisley printed fabric-*, onibio'dovies winked in P.**'-*-  ley  deigns  art*   being employed,   which  ������uv natuially far in ore expensive.

The fashion for having Jace- dyed to  match the gown is now c.irried to such  extremes that possessor of priceless old  Venice and ro3e point are having these  valuable heirlooms dyed, snd do not ap-  p.*i\������nily mind 'having theni mutilated  tvich the seissais. It is to be hoped that  theso \,*.'.idals  will  soon cease  in their  but it merely requires that time       judgment  be  expended  in choosing an} work  of  destruction, and    employ    the  original aad distinctive and not too aim- j lovely modern laces  which  aro equally  days that really are spent quietly and  ���������where only at tho end of tho -w-eek is  there any formal entertaining that requires elaborate toilettes.  But the American   woman   does   not  upend the summer is any one   plooe; on  the contrary, seashore and inland, mountains And plains, and, incidentally, En-  rope and America axe,   as   a   rule,   included   in the summer itinerary requiring, as ean readily "be underestood,    an  <?������dle<!3 variety of gowns for day    and  evening. To carry out such a schedule  implies the possesion of such an    income  that the dre6s question is considered on  quite a different basis from the selection of the customary summer -wardrobe.  The woman of to-day has no stated season  of  tho year  when  she selects  new  gowns; she eoon tires of any she buys,  and straightway hies   herself to lay in  a fresh supply, and there aro always, all  the year round, at the leading establishments smart gowns to bo found, oven at  the between times, when tho head of tho  house ii, abroad studying the   very lateat creations of tho designers in Europe.  In s>pitc of tlio great wealth in America and  the fact  that many American  woiuc.i buy  without counting the coat,  there are few among tho smartest gown- j  fld who do not find it csscstial to select j  carefully  and puralisso prudently     tho  summer outfit. They do not wish to   hb  gowned   loo   conspicuously;   thoy      insist upon bciug gowned correctly, prido  themselves upon always having ju6t tho  Tight gown for each and ovory occasion,  and  contend  the desired  result cannot  bo obtained by ordering recklessly.  What arc tlie moBt popular fabrics of  tbo season, iB always a question of deep  interest. Th������ soft, clinging materials  aro so fascinatingly attractive, oo peculiarly well adapted to all this season'a  models that naturally they challenge attention, but thero aro also heavier materials more closely woven than are fashionable as well and that cannot be ignored.  Voilo dosoio and cashmere     do eoio,  chiffon broadcloth, liborty satin, satin  oharmeuso satin crepo do     Chine���������all  these and many moro aro shown aa suitable for the  summer  gowns.  Foulard,  tusBali, royal pongee and     rajah     aro  uhowu in such on endless selection , ot  color, weave and weight that it is terribly difficult to select understanding-  ly, aud in order to exorcise calm judgment thoro must bo called to mind for  what purpo������o the gown i������ to bo worn;  then it ih far simpler to decide on   tho  mat* riol.

" Foulard combined with voile is  one of the most popular of all combinations of the moment, but is not so smart  as the liberty satin and voile he soie.  The liberty satin, crepe de chine and  the cachemire de soie gowns mede on the  absolutely simple draped designs are  ino������t attractive and becoming, and are  conspicuous for their almost exaggerated  simplicity in contrast with the overelab-  oration, intricate and exaggerated fashions that so challenge attention this season. A perfect figure has every detail  of its perfection exhibited in the draped  gown, with long skirt and surplice-draped waist. The girdle of striped .cilk or  satin, with its long ends finished with  I tassels, is not essential, but is rather a  novel touch that some like and some dislike. It is not a gown suitable to every  figure, and yet it is astonishing how in  tlie hands of an expert this model can  be so carried out that instead of revealing defects it conceals them and makes  even a short, thick waist look well.

Cachemire de soie is a most exquisite  material that is becoming more and more  fashionable of late. It has been made up  in three piece costumes, skirt, waist and  coat to match, and for that purpose has  been proved without a rival for summer  wear. It comes in all grades, all designs  and colors and the shades oi colors are  endless. In black it has a sheen and  finish tliat make it appear like the softest satin, but with a body that the softest satin lacks and which makes it most  possible for Street wear.  Just as with the cashmere of olden  time is it easy to make gowns fit well  when made of it, and for the half fitting  coats it hangs loose and at the same  time follows the linos and not the curves  in a most delightfully fashionable mani  nor.

This dainty little dross is made of  dotted foulard and plain liberty satin,  of a pale sltiade of old blue with  graduated dots of a darker shade. The  belt is a crushed girdle of blue satin  with a blue-enameled buckle.  The smartest belt is made of black  patent leather.  The panel effect is again a favorite in  dressy   gown8.  Girdles and odd bows are seen in plain  and figured ribbon.  Colored wood buttons are used on the  tailored suits and coats.  For juniors,  the waist line remains  long and the skirts are.short.  In practical street footwear the pumps  will be as popular as ever.  Soft color tones prevail in pretty striped silks uiiu. -~&uzcs.  There is a stronger tendency towards  tho once j popular kimono sleeve.  Ivory tipped ribs are a featuro of new  ivory parasols for white costumes.

In laces the new effects are handsome  and light and dainty in appearance.  All silk voiles are to be had in varying widths and in a wide range of colors.  . The tan shoe, both high and low, will  be even more generally worn than iasl  summer.  Hats for the young girl should be  trimmed with large bows of ribbon or  maiinc, or both.  In nearly all now styles, whether it be  for outside or general wear, the belt is  in evidence.  The "Dresden patterns in ribbons are  not confined to taffeta and moire, but  may be found in velvet as well.  Among the beaded nets for trimming  evening gowns are appliqued designs,  done in gold and soft pastel shades.

A very pretty idea is the carrying of a silver or gold ring to which is  attached a mass of little luek bringers;  sometimes as many as twenty or thirty  m-s in evidence; a sovereign purse and  tiny powder box are included.

The following is alleged by a coi respondent to have b������i!?ii uoswd in lilts  Central Telegraph office, London:  .Notice lo tho Staff���������rjenural Osdcr  No. 190,072.  It is observed that when a pencil requires to be ehaipened a great diversity  of method is pursued by the staff. In  view of the fact that*th������ piovision of  pencils is a significant cost on the department, it is desired that uniformity  of procedure should be followed with re- ���������  gard to their sharpening. The following* rules are laid down for the guidance  of all concerned, and it is incumbent  upon the superintending officers to see  that th&y are carried out;  Fiist���������Hold    the    pencil firmly in the  left hand and with the right draw the  blade of a penknife smartly across the  wood in  a diagonal direction, starting  about    three-quarters    of .in inch from  the   outer   end, taking care not to cut  the lead or a waste of pencil will ensue.  Second���������Repeat this operation several  times, moving the pencil  in a circular ���������  direction   with   the   fingers of the left  hand.  I     Third���������When   the   lead   is laid bare  espeeial   care   is   needed with regard to  its   pointing.     Hold   the   ponpii   point  downward  on a  pad,  making sure,  oi  course, that the pad is first turned over,  so as* not to spoil a message form.  Fourth���������Draw    the    knife    carefully  downward on the lead in a veibieal direction, turning   the   pencil   as   before  with a rotary movement until a point  ���������  is Obtained.  So much for the sharpening of the  pencil.   Then comes: \ '  Fifth���������The question of the disposal  of ihe residual lead now presents itself.  Do uot blow tliis aw.iy recklessly, a3  some have been observed to do, but carry  it carefully to the neare-st wastepapor  receptacle and .deposit it therein. It  will be to the interest of the staff to seo  this carried out by others.  Sixth���������Should it be necessary to borrow a penknife from a. colleague, the  borrower should be careful to see that  the colleague is not busy at the time.  It is advisable, however, for every member of the staff to provide himself with  this article, and the provision or otherwise will be taken into consideration  when the question of promotion arises.  ���������Boston Transcript.  m * s>  A Royal grandmother.

"I'll come fast enough; ungrateful  beggars, too, when all last winter, when  the depression was ao great, you kept on  the same wages at your lose; and now,  wihen you must recoup, they start thia!  Lock them out, of course, if it keeps the  mines unworked forever and a day."  "I mean to, I can toll you," said William Orde, grimly." "When I've once said  Til do or not do anything, its' an edd  thing that will turn my *ik>' into *yeg.'"  He looked it just then; and involuntarily Falconer thought of hia own marriage, and how nil was any hope of  changing this old man's obstinately implacable dictum, despite his affection for  himself.  "Of course,' 'Mr. Orde added, "tiiis is  only a threatening; the storm may never  burst at all-���������certainly not yet awhile;  but if it does, old Will Orde is ready for  it and them.

After I married I found  I could not throw worries ofz like other  women, and those dull feelings of despondency and weariness made ine very  unhappy. There was no cause to feel  so, and my doctor said my liver was  sluggish and this accounted for my poor  color, my tiredness, langour and despair.

Well, I never used  a pill that acted so quietly as Dr. Hamilton's. They were so comfortable to  use I, was afraid they might not help.

What do the Innuit father  and sou see in that polar kindergarten T  A seal is on the ioe by the eide of its  hole stretching its flippers luxuriously  in the year's first sunWhine.    Tbe  big  white  hear ban sighted his prey  from  behind an ice hummcck at a distance  when -the aeal appears but a black speck.  Throwing himself on his Bide, the bear,  himself  not  much, removed   from    the  color of the ice, "hitches" himself along  in much the same fashion as &    biby  crawls.    The seal at this season takea  short catnaoa of twentv or thirty seconds ������aeh, waking up from eaeh one and  surveying the landscape o'er.   When the  seal sleeps, Bru^n hitohee.   As the seal  opens his eyes the bear lifts his head  and imitates the voice of another seal,  the   sound  being so  deceptive   that   a  ma.h'6 ear cannot detect the isaitat'oiL  The admiring Innuit calls this "talking  seal," and bids his little lad practise it  in hia play-time.  This alternate "hitching" and "talking Beal" goes on until the bear is within  striking distance, when a sudden rising  to hie four feet and a powerful pounce  ends the duel of duplicity on one side  and drowsiness on tbe other. If the seal  is quick enough to reach his hole before  the hidden umpire of destinies calls  -'Strike one," he makes a home run and  congratulates himself, por those who  would bet on the game,'it Is fair to say  that the poor seal does not succeed one  tame out of ten.  The Innuit, from top to toe dre������wed"*  in skins, looks even more like a seal than  a bow does, and pursues hia quarry from  a distance in identically the same way,  saying that if he could "talk fleal" as h  well as ������. bear he  would have greater  success.���������Agnes Deans Cameron, In the -  Canadian Magazine for May.

Started only a few years ago by the company of the same name, the settlement has now grown to  such an extent that it is found necessary to establish a separate school for Canyon City alone.  . The Creston district, although not experiencing any boom, 11  is steadily growing and in a few years Canyon City wiil be x  only one of several such settlements surrounding Creston.-  It is therefore not surprising that we should take an optimistic view of matters at Creston. With a climate equal to  that of the south of France and a steady forward movement  for the district, who would npt be a resident of Creston ?

It appears, however, that the parents while  stating to third parties these facts, appear to wish, to screen  the boys by not wishing to make any complaint against  them. In these family matters it is always usual for the  parents to be the ones to make the complaints. Now if the  parents of the truant boys will make the necessary complaint, the offending pupils will be less in evidence on the  street* during school hours.  COMMUNICATIONS.  CreBton, B.C., Juno 27th, 1910  Editor, Greaton Review.  Dear Sir,���������lb your editorial dealing  with my communication to yon ro exhibiting Greaton frnit nnd prodnco at tho  forthcoming fell fair-*, yon say that you  nro informed by Mr. W. S. WntBon, tho  secretary of the Fruit Growers' Association, thnt "tho matter ot sending exhibits to tho various frnit exhibitions in,  ho thinks, tbis year to bo under tho nolo  management of Mr. S. Middleton, tho  Deputy Provincial Horticulturist for the  Kootonnye."  Now, flir, I believe 1 nm right in saying that wo should all Rroatly dopreento  tho notion of a government ofllclal looking nfttr tho exhibit of nny particular  diHtrict. Surely you do uot mean to infer tbat Mr. Middleton will pay tho ox*  ponses that go with the f-xblblts rrom  Crouton to all tho fairs UiIh town Iiiih In  mind.

Do not think for a moment that I am  speaking disparagingly of Mr. Middle-  ton, for I havo too much regard for him,  both as a fruit expert nnd n man, to  hurt his feelings. I nm only anxious  that thero should bo no mlfitakes.  I want to make it clear that Mr. Mid-  dleiton cnuuot, ih his oillcinl capacity,  give Oreston auy advantage over any  othor district, and thnt that can only bo  accomplished by tho wholo-sonlod oflCorti*  of tho local growers und mou who will  attend tho fairs and seo that Oreston  gpt,n a flqnnro deal, both in tho nllol'.tod  Htineo nnd display.

The Englishman "who sees rod invasion' painted on tho pall of night as ho  turns feverishly on hia pillow will find  an article on "England's Peril" by Sir.  Archibald Huid in the the Fortnightly  Iteview for April a blessed anodyne.  There is no refuting Mr. Kurd's argument that starvation, and not invasion,  is the zeal menace to tho Englishman's  home. The "invasion school" has now  a leg to stand upon when he has said  the last word. He will convince aa.y normal person that England was never better defended by her naval establishment  than die is to-day .Por a moment eliminate from consideration her powerful  home fleet of battleships and cruiser  always steaming up and down &he Channel and the North Sea, easily assembled  or diTidsd, as emergency ussy requiro.  Take into account only the submarine,  torpedo boats .and destroyers as they  are distributed about the coasts to attack the transports oi an enemy and  their convoying wiships. We quote  from Mr.  Hurd's article  "There are flotillas of submarines ���������  about two dozen ���������always on. duty in  the narrows of the Channel, with their  bases at Portsmouth and  Dover,      and  !  Mrs. Eugene Gagnon, 1/Islet Station, Que., says: "I believe Bs-by's  Own Tablet* the beat medicine in  the world for little ones.    1 have  given them to my baby for colic,  constipation   and   sometimes    for  breaking up a fever, and I have  never known them to fail in giving prompt relief.   Before I began  the ~use of  the Tablets my baby  was very thin and cried continually.    Since  then   sha has  grown  splendidly   and   is     plump     and  healthy.    I also gave the Tablets  to   my   four-year-old   child,  who  suffered   frequently   from  convulsions, and they made a permanent  cure.    When I have  Baby's Own  Tablets in the house  I feel safe,  and I advise other mothers also to  keep  them on hand."

All these vessels are  continually exercising oa the east  coast. And then, finally, further north  there ia another flotilla of submarines  at Dundee. From Dover right away  northward there as also a -series of war  signal stations on the coast���������wireless  telegraph stations ���������Cinking togethee  the whole of the- defences."  Thon open a navy list      and try to ,  grasp tho magnitude of the sea power,  -in Dreadnoughts aud other great battleships and armored cruisers, not to speak  of lesser but still formidable warships,  aU of them equipped with the .wireless  telegraph,   that   would be   arailable  to  cope with an amiadi. seeking to land aa  expeditionary force ou the British coast.  Bemember that s- transport is as vulnerable to tho well directed shot of a second class battleship or cruiser os to the  projectile of a 12 inch gun in the turret ~o������-&'Dreadnought,     and     England  oould assemble hundreds of ships of all  classes  to do  battto  with  an  enemy's  fleet- and sink    its   transports.    To the  favorite argument that "the fleet might  be decoyed away," and that during its  &.bRenc������ tlm enemy would make a. landing, Mr. Hurd replies that wireless telegraphy would quickly apprise the fleet  of its error, and that      (an  argument  which we regard as of far greater importance)   "modern   fleets   are   tied   to  their bases because they must have coal,  and there is ao foreign power which has  such a chain of bases as would enable  its ships to go "far afield' in a decoying  movement."  Mir. Hurd bids the alarmists remember that tho home fleet alone  comprises  350  ships  of all   types.   Owing to tho development of steam    applied to marine purposes,     the .British  Empire, De maintains, "is more consolidated than was the German Empire in  1670."  But granting, for the sake of argument, thot the enemy could baffle all  the Admiralty's resources and get a  floating expeditionary force through tho  line of sea defence, how strong a force  would it be���������tlio Judgment of men  like Lord Roberts is of value on this  point���������and what,troops would be available to resist the invaders? Lord Roberts, who in truth ia something of an  alarmist' himself, estimates the maximum strength of an elusive invading  force of 70,000 men of all arms. To resist It the now Territorial Army of 270,-  000 men (not counting a single regular)  could bo quickly mobilized. ' 'Of ���������the  Territorial Army the French General  Langlois, a mombor of the Supreme  Council of War, who has visited England  to study this force, has a high opinion.  Iu his report he sayst  "The Territorial divisions are thoroughly organised units. All the services  in them have been created and work  smoothly without any assistance from  the regular army.'  The men, says General Langlois, are  characterised by "a wmarkable energy,  a great tenacity, a good will above all  praise." In the face of a national danger he is sure they would do "great  thing*." Mr. Hurd says that "all foreign observers havo eomo to muoh the  same opinion as this distinguished  French officer."  Coming to the real peril of England,  starvation, Mr. Hurd says that at times  the country has only a seven weeks' sup-  ply of food, and that In consequence  thore are always 18,000,000 people living  on the verge of starvation. He declares that by "gottlng across the trade  routes" and dominating them an enemy  could force England to "a humiliating  ponce." Upon this obvioufl danger and  logical method oi strategy be does not  spend mueh time. But In the moan-  while what would tho warships of England not attached to tho home fleet bo  doing? "It is not invasion, but starvation which we have to fear," he doclaren,  "ami only the fleet can savs us." Two  committees of Imperial dufenee, one appointed by Mr. Balfour's Government  and the other by Mr. Asqulth's, nnd both  composed of the nbleiit Admlrali anil  Generals on aetlr* servoce, have reported exlianstlvmly on the danger of Invasion and tbo mean������ to repel It, and their  onnehiftlnnn formed the l."*Ms of Mr.  Tfurd'* thoughtful article.    ������ ������������   Mlnnrd's Liniment uoed by Physicians  Titled Women Keeping Chickens.

One of the most perplexing questions  in the work of the trolley-system electrical   engineer   is,   states   the   Electrical  World, how to minimize  the danger of  electrolytic  corrosion  in  metallic  pipus,  beams or cable sheathings lying in the  ground near the return conduct-ed system.   Except in rare situations, such aii  among   ore   deposits, the   crust   of  the  earth is found to be of non-conducting  substances.       Dry  boII, mud, clay  and  gravel are all fairly good insualtors.    It  is only the moisture suspended in such  soils tnat conducts electricity to nny appreciable extent.    The resistivity of ordinary   damp  soil  is many   millions   of  times greater than the resistivity of copper.   Nevertheless, if wo bury a plate in  ordinary molat Boil and send a current  thence   into  the   ground,   the   radiating  current soon spreads over such a very  large hemispherical surface that the resistance of the  earth  lxcorocs indefinitely small beyond a range of a few feet.

When Released It Knew Something  Besides How to Swim in a Circle.  A big sturgeon that has been a prison-.  or thirty years has-just been released  from his long captivity and set free ni  the Columbia River. The fish was taken  from the Columbia River, near Cascade  Locks, iu the spring of 1SS0. lt was  caught in a fish wheel and was given to  tho late Dr. W. H. Adams, of Hood River.  The Bturgeon was placed in a small  pond on the Adams ranch. There was  then two, ponds on the place, and the  fish was changed from one to the other  from time to time. Somo years ago the  ponds filled with grass and weeds, and  the water became so shallow that the  back of the sturgeon was blistered by  the Bun.  The fish was then moved to the pool  of a fountain on the farm, whore it  swam about in a circle. It kept growing bigger, until it was about bIx feet  long and the fountain was too small a  place for it to ba kept.'  Mrs. Sue M. Aa=.ms Armstrong, owner  of the farm, returned from Portland this  week and ordered the release of the pet  fish and the sturgeon was carted to the  Columbia River and set free.

When boiled custard is overcooked it  may be brought back to the right consistency if thoroughly beaten with an  egg-beater.  A baking powder box with a small  hole in the bottom makes a sharp, quick  chopper for use when warming over potatoes or vegetables.  The flat taste of boiled water may be  removed by pouring from one pitcher to  another in tiie open air.  Meats and fish which spatter when  cooking may be seared first and then  placed in the oven to finish cooking.  Paper bags, which accumulate so fast,  may be put to good use in the kitchen.  When frying doughnuts lay in a paper  bag and they  will lose  much of  their  greaainess.  Never consider a withered vegetable  if you can afford a fresher one. It will  be tasteless and indigestible when cooked, and so is dear in the end. Get only  as many berries as will be eaten the  same day if you have a keen sense of  taste, and when the summer corn comes  in be sure you ask for sweet corn and  make sure of it by seeing that the  grains are small, tender and pearly.  FiekTcorn, which is coarse-grained, without sweetness or any delicate taste, is  often palmed off for the choicer ear.

If, therefore, the seeds you have  planted do not produce a crop the  fault lies at your own door, and failure is due either to lack of knowledge  of the preparation of the soil or carelessness in the handling of the plants after  they are above the ground.

In connection with a recent sale in  England of the letters of William Blath-  wayt, a correspondent of the London  Daily News makes the interesting assertion that Blathwayt, and not Willian  Penn, selected the name for the commonwealth which he founded in the new  world. According to'! this authority,  when William Penn applied to Charles  II. for permission to name his new colony after' the King. Blathwayt, who  was in attendance on his Majesty, being  a staunch Tory and high churchman,  vigorously objected. "No," your Majesty,*' said he, "let tho Quaker call it after  himself," and Pennsylvania accordingly  it vras named. Blathwayt must have  been an odd character, for he contrived  to obtain the good opinion of both Pepys  and Evelyn at one and the same time,  but he played not fair to tho Stuart  cause. "He crossed, I believe, with James  to Dublin, and probably joined in the  Irish jig with O'Flynn and the Lady Bon-  edctta at Dublin Castlo, and thon apparently he went straight back and espoused the cause of William."���������Philadelphia  Ledger.

Slow to germinate, they struggled for a t  long period before theer was any sign of  bloom. What bloom they finally produced was of a small, delicate variety  and lasted but a short time.  All of which goes to prove that tne  trench in the open is undoubtedly the  hi?s'u method of growing BWeet peas. This  is not always possible-, however, and it is  most satisfactory to know that almost  as good results may be obtained when  peas aie 'trained against wall or fence,  pre viding there is ample sunshine, which  was not so in the ease of lot 3, as described above.

A noticeable; feature- about  these fruit trees on this '.'estate isrhe fact  that they are all so pruned that the fruit  grows on all the branches from the center of the tree to.the .extreme', .end. The  trees are free of waste wood and the suu  cau shine right through the.'branches.  Some of the apple trees ave clevcu years  old and yield four boxes of apples to the  tree. These apples average in weight  half a pound each.  There are also a few English waluuf  trees ou this land, which, are. doing well.  Besides the fruit trees thex*e are numerous rowsibf raspberry and currant, bushes.-which'extend as srraight as a chalk  line for some 250 feet in length. Strawberries are also grown successfully on  tbis estate. The Messrs. Watson also  have a nursery of some 600 three-year  old trees, which are planted in long  rows and present- a ������ne appearance. Aii  of these young trees are apple, being  Spitsbergen, /Northern Spy, Crimes'  Golden, Wealthy, and others.  Of vegetables, these gardens are certainly well supplied. There are potatoes,  three kinds of peas in succession, radishes, lettuce, three kinds of beans, turnips and rutabagas, iiiaagels and horse  carrots, parsley, cucumbers and tomatoes, melons and corn, as well as" sugar  "beets, onions and cabbage.-       V  Mr. Watson, senior, is a great believer  in deep earth cultivation for fruits and  vegetables, such as what ;is known os  dry earth farming. He also believes in  poultry and has over 200 of the feathered  tribe, which come to him at a moment's  notice at the sound of his whistle.  It would do any one good to visit thU  fruit, vegetable and flower garden and  See for themselves what an enormous  amount of fruit and produce can be  grown on this comparatively small acreage. ...,.:'..,  Mr. Watson says that hereafter he-  will devote more of his time to the cultivation of flowers, so that we can now  confidently expect theso now famous  gardens to fnirly outclass themselves in  beauty and nuigniflcenco in tho future.  ���������mm>MW,^aa������f������J������^.m^  Hi   Mm ^MP"3  ������������������������������������BBra-tei^^  We bave a First-Class ������fob Printing Department  *% 4*5 irt!  -*V*t^������  At,*  Jf &*.*���������  l������.-������BB������-^^  C1  tter  14 _  1 1 \^CA,  <*f\  Rill  Cards  n;  v^  ������1 'w'L4.aC4L1 O  In fact, anything and everything in the way of High-  Grade Commercial Printing at the  Couches, Sale price, $13.45.���������-O.O.S.
