H. Schofield member  for Ymir, and the thoughtfulness of the  ^Creston Board of Trade, whioh sent two  boxes of apples to their representative  'This has become a recognized custom, on  the port of the Creston people since Mr.  [, \ Schofield bas been sitting in the Bouse  mt.o ->i���������^^;_��������� _-,���������*__ -_ __"_;���������i ...v ���������-���������  jxxxa f*c<*o*u|j uudiuiu ia toiicu couu jcor  by sending a different sort of apple, just  to prove that they can grow them all.  The extremely high color of the appIeB  was most striking:. So deep a red did  nearly every specimen show that many  oould not believe they were Northern  Spys ������** a. I. However,, the matter was  set at rest by examining the "original  package" they came in. The box,  whioh was in no way specially selected,  being merely a regular commercial package, and of the ordinary No. 1 grade,  was marked Northern Spy by the fruitgrower of the Oreston district.  Mr. Schofield's constituency covers a  wide extent of territory, reaching from  near Grand Forks, on the west, to the  summit beyond Kootenay Lake on the  east. It is in this East Kootenay section that Creston is located. In this  aiBtrict are 40,009 acres of fine high  land, suitable for'fruit growing,?  Much  ** < \  of it is now being brought Into cultivation r but there arenolarge companies."  Each owner is working his land himself  and as few, if any, of the original holdings exceeded 160 aores, subdivision has  proceeded very qnietly, though many of  the owners are selling off portions of  their land to new settlers who are-oon-  stantly coming in. ?'**  ti: In addition to the high land mentioned, there is ah area of low land on. the  east shores of the Kootenay Lake, qf  something like 27,000 aores, most of  which is capable of reolaimation, an������  when brought into production will be  found to be the richest; soil in the pro.  vince, says Mr. Schofield. Years' ago  there was a reclamation oompanv whioh  undertook to. make the necessary im  provomen.ts  to this  land,* bat  it  fell  down in coarse of time, and now a reserve haB been placed on che area. It  is expected that a plan for reclaiming  and placing this land on tbe market  will,be evolved ere long.  The frnit grown in tho Oreston distriot is ail of the high class shown by  the sample box with whioh 'Mr. Schofield regaled his yesterday. The extremely high color is a feature of every  variety. of apples grown there, and  another feature is chat they do not require irrigation. Small fruits are, receiving a great deal of attention at  Oreston, whieh is in a very favorable  position for reaohing the market in Alberta an a very few hours hy rail. The  demand is never met, which is also  true as to the apple crop, the growers  not being  able to fill one-tenth  of the  Older8 they COUld ftet. As uix iiiatanue  of what can be done, Mr. Schofield told  cf a. man at Creston who had gone into  the strawberry growing as a specialty,  and made a olose study of it. He applied the most up-to-date ideas to thehand-  ling and marketing of his crop, with  the result that one year hi? net returns  from four acres of strawberries were  over $4000.  In the Trail section of hia constituency, Mr. Schofield says the people are  going into frnit growing too, and making a success of it. One man has an  orohard, which is perhaps the largest  single plantation in British Coluinbia,  as it does, 15,000 trees.

After  a'disoussion lasting almost' the entire  afternoon, during which nearly all the  dairymenexpressed themselves ft& faVor?.  ing an increase,, the followingresohuion  was put to the meeting and passed:  "That the government he urged to  continue the work of testing dairy aa^tg  for tuoeroulin germs, and the valuation  of grade cattle be fixed at $i.S9 s_d  pnre-bred cattle at -$2E0, t*jyc-thirds ot  this valbation to be paid as cdmpebsa-  tioh."  The feeling of themeeting was strongly in favor of the continuance of the  --������ ���������*������  work so well began. Mr. Thos. &ang,  of Eburne, raised the question of hnfair  testing. He declared that a certain  farm near his own, where there was a  large herd, was passed over by the inspectors. He purchased cattle from  thislierd and immediately was forced  to have them undergo the teBt, thereby  loci-g a considerable uSiii of _loufty, nei  the oattle reacted .under the test.

The members of   the  present Cabinet are practical  men.    Last     summer    Hon.  Frank Cochrane made a special survey trip to the Hudson's  Bay.   Hon. J. D. Hazen vist-  ed at first hand the   fisheries  of the Dominion, and Hon. L.  P. Pelletier   the   post offices  from East to West.   The result of the PostmasterGeneral's  work is evident   everywhere.  The post office system   never  was    better   organized,   and  never were postmasters from  coast to coast iu a more eon-  tented frame of mind.

Feb. n,  1914.    Parcels Post is destined to  be of great benefit to the producer aud the customer, in  that it eliminates the middleman.  This is the reason why the  twenty mile zone was adopted:  In almost every part of the  country u. city or town 01 considerable size will be taken in  by this method, thus enabling  tr****    i*%rrr\<cr avrl    nrndiir^r  in  that territory to sell his goods I  on the market at a low cost 1  for carriage. ���������'���������;'.  The farmer does not care  about the city" one hundred  miles away* and if the parcels,  post rate is fairly high for  such a distance it is no handicap to him. It is the closer  market which he wants, and  the low rate within the  twenty-mile zone gives this  to him.  Every important reform in  the national, machinery of a  country's business has its ber  ginning in the mind of one  man eager and desirous for  the welfare of the people, and  the inauguration of Parcels  Post is one such . striking example, Hon. Louis Philippe  Pelletier, Postmaster-General  in the Borden Cabinet, ' has  instituted Pared Post, not because he was forced by public  opinion, but by reason of a  strong desire to assist j the  people. Parcels Post is the  best piece of'Voluntary legisla-  tion that the Post Office Department has organized since  Confederation.  L. P.    Pelletier,    father   of  Parcels  Post, is  the leader of  ���������. .' .���������* ���������       ������������������ .  the French-Canadian  section  of the Conservative  party in  the House of Co.unious,  and  he is  following in   illustrious  footsteps.   There always have  been, in  every  cabinet {since  Confederation,    stroii-p*    men  from Quebec, to. whom the  business of government was a  science, and the art of politics  a delight. And, the ; golden  Cabinet is no exception to the  rule. Hon. Mr. Pelletier has  built up a reputation in the  House and out of it, which  has secured for him the^ad*-  miration alike of friend and  foe. This reputation is being  enhanced,; not by fitful spasms  of meteoric legislation, but by  dint of solid hard application  to business. ������?.,  LAND SETTLEMENT  Sir George Palsh, the edit-  or of the London Statist, and  one of the great financial authorities in the world has said  much in praise of Canada  since he spent some weeVs in  the East a few months ago;  In a very close analyses, of  our industries and our resources he gives advice which  seemingly is good. "The  machinery created to take  care of the production of Canada," he says, ''is sufficient; at  present to deal with at Aeafet  twice if not thrice the existing output."  Sir George states that Canada has now more extensive  means of transportation and  more facilities for production  iluiu .lie una products to handle.

This'Serious Disease Must Bo Handled  I With Great Cars.  I _.     By W. O. GLOYER,  i Formerly assistant boatnim-uc Oulo aSti-  I cultural experiment station.  It is increasingly evlde&t that serious  apple diseases must lie back of the reported dying of mature; apple trees in  many parts of the country. Field studies of conditions, supplemented hy laboratory examination*? made daring the  season of 1911 and the early spring of  ifJiii, shovy that serious conkers are  present in tbese diseased orchards. By  ihe term canker we refer to any apparent bark disease of fruit trees. In  tbese diseased areas the symptoms of  dying bark and extension of disease  causing an. enlargement of the spots''  are usually evident.  Attention -to a form of canker was,  flrst called by Paddock In 1899., This  was .with respect to the canker caused,  by tbe black rot fungus, Sphaeropslsr  malorum Fk.f and known as. the New  Iforfc appie tree-' canker.

"** ^  bflug brought out that the most serious canker disease of that state is that  caused by the fungus Kummuloria dis-  creta Tui. and named by him the Illinois apple tree canker. For purposes of  this discussion it is somewhat better to  adopt   the   characteristic   descriptive  common uauio Cj, "ousser csuu*.:?  tbe disease caused by this fungus.  "   The recommendations for the prevention of?tbis disease have, bees known  for-many years.   In cutting a branch  from a tree it Is desirable to make the  " cut -smooth and close to the member  from which it is to be severed and to  cover wounds that are larger than an  inch in diameter.   It wouid be still wetter to cover all  wounds with  some  dressing,   but   generally   this  is   not  practical.  During the past season we have used  paraffin, thick white lead paint and  aspbaitum,' and it wiii. require .further ��������� -w, .-.-^-^ .���������������������������,v,_^;���������^:1  experiments and more time is heces- $%*g?g> S-SS1-  sary before definite conclusions con be  drawn. The substance known as as-  phaltum is an oil refining product that  has a variable melting point depending  upon its source. However, this varies  from 225 to 285 degrees F.  While this temperature is its melting point, it cannot be applied at sucbi  temperature because it becomes rigid  as soon as cooled to a very slight de^  gree; hence it is necessary to apply  this substance at a temperature some,  where near its boiling point, which is  in tbe vicinity of 450 to 600 degrees F.  This is applied with a daub or. brush  and as soon as it cools it forms a semirigid coveringY This covering is soft,  similar to heavy tar, in summer, while  ln winter lt has a tendency to become  brittle and may crack. This crack may  be closed again later in the year.  Tbo paraffin"used "was the sawe ns  that ordinarily applied for scallhg purposes and has a molting point or liu to  125 degrees P. To apply this It Is  necessary to have a blow torch to heat  the paraffin to a liquid condition. This,  however, is objectionable because of  tho possibility of Injury caused to the  growing, tissues.  it'is generally agreed that some sab-,  Btanco is necessary -to protect tho  wounds by, prbvonting drying out of  tho tissues and'n subsequent infection,  Some orchard men neglect to gather  all the pruned brush and somo men pile  the namo nntaldo the orchard, usually  In a ditch, and allow tho wood to do*  cay as best It can. It Is true that such  brush prevents erosion, but it is also  truo that such brush is a real hotbed  Ior, faugus diseases. It la a common  night to soo side by aldo a veil kepy  commercial orchard and.a neglected,  nnlcept orchard.  Tho host policy In to burn the brush  nnd thus prevent trouble tbat may  causo fluanciiil loss. Should an entire  treo bo found to bo killed by some  causo or othor It ts alwayB advisable  l-imodhitely to grub it out rather than  to cut it off noar tho surface of the  grouud. Should any portion ot th$  flead tree bo allowed to remain in the  soil It Is very subject to tho attacks  of th'* root r*>*> fn-njrnfi (Armlllarrlm  mollon L.), and from there the <ty9**1  may sprend through the grotttod to  neighboring healthy trees.
