Why Mabel Lake Valley,  with ils thousands of acres of- excellent agricullural Jand. ils almost unlimited timber reserve.  its .water-power possibilities1, and it's othcr resources, should bc neglected as it has been, is1 a  mystery.

Where the  winter is "ong and steadily cold*, the  eei'ar   is   usually   more. satisfactory,  l.ut  outsltle     wintering    suc.c2:..s  in  some     moderately     cold    'places     if  proper   precautions   are   taken.   -At  the Centra]   Experimental  Pawn, Ottawa,   the   two   methods   have    ibe-en-  connpfirod during the last live years.  Wintering  outside  has  been done  in  .in a.piary protec-fed from  wind  by a  'board   fence   e'ght   feet     Hiigli,   the  hives ip'aced   in  cases -made  to  hold  four colonies each  with packing material around the sides, ib&iiioaitia, 'and  [above  the  hives.   "The  cellar  was  a  low  dry  one  under the Administration   Building, 'Which "was heated  al'  wiim'ter.    The  results 'have 'been  very-  close,   but   outside     'wintering     has  brought the colonies forward  slightly eaf'ier in 'the spring.  )T-n the   wide- belt   where  both   cellar and  outside wintering are about  equally  satisfactory,     the     deciding  factor -aiptpears to be convenience.  i.  the   beekeeper  lvas  a   wcJ."   insulated  and 'dry cellar., -by   usfng  i>   h,e,  will  save  the   expense     cf     constructing  w������������������'-nitei!ing  cases,   and   also -a     v.-incl-  ���������������������������breaik, tf this js not present      Fcr a  ifew   coloni''es, -in   a   cc< d   '| 'e^i'on.   a  boarded-in   part   cf     tho" 'di-ve!!ins?-  house   basement  makes  a   good   cell-so* for the bees, and it is an a'dvant-  aigo tf the basement contains, a. furnace.    Such   a  cellar shou-'d  hn-ve  a  steady   temipe-rafcure- somewhere   'between 42 degrees and 5 0 degrees F.  In  ouside  wintering, it  is, very   important   to   protect   the   ariiarv   from  wind. _    Outs:.de -wintering  -has  the  advantage -that the bees .may be loft  without     attention    'throughout -Uhe  winter,   whereas  in: many  cellar*  in  the   m'ilder   .parts   of   Canada,     the!  ventilation  has "to be-watahed     and,  con&ro'led.

The  city of Nelson, on the Kootenay Lake,  fs the distributing centre for the district, from which the wholesale trade  of the interior is carried on.   Nelson  owns the  public    utilities,    electric  light, street   railway,   water   works  and gas works.    Special attention is  given to the "forestry department in  guarding the timber" resources of the.  district.    With  an  unlimited  supply  ��������������������������� of wood in the mountains, there isa  great  future  in   the  pulp   industry.  Within a radius of twenty-five miles,  there are  twenty-five- saw  mills  in  operation.    The  Board  of Trade  of  Nelson is now in communication with j  New York capitalists  regarding the  establishment of a pulp mill.  "Tributary, to the proposed mill site are  11,200 square miles of territory from  which wood supplies can be procur- '  ed.   The slopes, forested witb timber,  are  easily .workable.   .The  popula- :  tion of the region embracing about  forty thousand people, <s fairly well  ftpread over the entire area.   There  are about 15^000 inhabitants in ten  towns and the balance are scattered  on homesteads,-ranches, lumber and'  mining  camps, through  the district.  Many.   In order to obtain   wording  capital, accept contracts f#r delivery  ���������������������������of logs, trees, shingles,, cedar poles  nnd other products from their lands  and there   are a number   of-forest  product operators around the Lake.  ft is computed that nearly 14 million  cords of pulpwood could be secured,  enourb to last one hundred and fifty  years, figuring three hundred cords  per day.  The maximum distance of raw material from Nelson Is sixty-five miles  with an average of thirty-five miles.
