 \k^kmS$^������������l  and  r (  le Valley Orchardist  ��������� I*.  I -  \o  THIRTEENTH YEAR���������No. 25  GRAND FORKS, B. C., FRIDAY, APRIL 17, 1914  $1.00 PER "YEAR  Editor Grand Forks Sun:  As .there.has been some'''misunderstanding of the recom mendations  I have made, from time to time, as  to the spraying of fruit trees"in dry  belt sactions, I desire to put before  your readers a brief statement,  .which I hope will serve not only to  correct wrong impressions, but as a  guide in some measure t.o more efficient and more economical pest  control.  At a meeting iii Summerland a  year ago, 1 pointed out, that much  unprofitable spraying hail been  done because often there was little  or nothing to spray for. At that  ���������time I had reference in Uie use of  winter sprays, particularly on apple trees. In addressing thy summer meeting of the British Columbia Entomological society at Ver  non last July, 1. gave an address on  "The Economic Side of Pest Control," since published by the society, copies of which can be had  from thio office.  On both occasions   I pointed out,  and I wish to emphasize it further:  That the problem of successful fruit  culture .is strictly an economic   one.  Fruit must be produced and sold at  a   price  that  provides'a margin of  profit   to   the   grower.    Marketing  organization has been   provided  for  the   purpose   of  securing as high a  price as possible, and at  the  lowest  cost for packing and marketing; and  the perfection  of  marketing  organization should   ensure the   highest  selling   price   combined   with   low  costs for packing and selling,    Nevertheless, I am convinced from   the  many observations in this   province  and elsewhere, which   I   have   had  considerable opportunity of making,  that the grower himself must strive  to reduce the   costs  of   productiod.  Among   the  principal elements   in  the cost of production is the  cost of  spraying.  My idea of spraying is this: Fruit  growing  is    not   profitable   unless  everything is done both cheaply and  well; every unnecessary  expense  in  growing   and   packing   should   be  avoided,    but,   on  the other hand,  nothing  should  be   excluded   that  will increase the profits. Our cost of  producing a box ol fruit is high, and  compared with our competitors it is  too high.    Why it is so high is quite  a   long   story:    We   pay   our labor  well for one thing; all the  materials  and equipment we use   are   expensive, aud living is   high;   I   believe  we   have    been   doing   a  little too  much clean   cultivation, and   much  of our pruning has been se severe as  to   prevent   the  trees from bearing  what they should; the  cost  of marketing is a large   item, which could  perhaps be reduced.   I'have studied  many   of   these   queetions  as thoroughly as I could,   and  may   have  some recommendations to make, but  with regard to the control  of  pests,  the  question   we should ask   cur-  tee a spray calendar purporting to  be issucccl by a member of the horticultural branch, which recommends n spraying the blossoms of  can not fight them either cheaply or trees with arsenate of lead to kill  well.      ������������������������������������ the   bees, and  other insects to pre-  Comparing the Okanagan and the  vent   them   carrying  blight.    This  district   of   Wenalcbee, which   are  comparable, except that iWenatchee  has San Jose scale and   the Okanagan has not, 1 found  that  in    1913  VVenatchee used for winter spraying  one barrel of lime sulphur for every  25 acres of orchard, and the Okanagan used one barrel for 20 acres; yet  the Okanagan trees are. on  the   average,    much   younger and smaller  than i.h'e VVenatchee trees, and there  is    no   San   Jose   Scale   to   control  either,   and    moreover    Wenatchee  produces very clean frnit.    It is extremely    rare   to find   scale .'on the  fruit   in    their   orchards; certainly  hardly   ever   in   orchards   that are  given average care,.    In   VVenatchee,  Inspector   Darlington  stated   to me  that only about 50 per  cent  of   the  bearing   orchards   get lime sulphur  every year; the balance   are   winter  sprayed once in two or once in three  years;    non-bearing     orchards   are  sprayed even less.  The great majority  of  the   apple  orchards of   tne  Okanagan, in   my  opinion,    require   a   very     limited  amount of   spraying at present.    If  aphis is present,   the   black-leaf   40  sprays, applied according to the  department's authorized Spray  Calendar,    which   has  just  been issued,,  should be entirely effective, and additional   spraying   may   be made if  necessary.    If chewing insects affect  the leaves or fruit, they can be controlled   with  arsenate of  lead���������two  pounds to 50 gallons of   water,   applied   as   soon   as the injury is noticed.    Apple scab is not  a  normal  thing in the dry   belt, though  some  was   present   last   year, due to the  very   heavy   precipitation in   May  and   June.    It   would   not  pay to  spray for apple scab, except in  low-  lying and  very   sheltered  orchards  where air circulation is   very   poor;  and there are  very few such   orchards.  It   is  conclusively  demonstrated  that lime sulphur  at  any   possible  strength   does   not  destroy  all the  aphis eggs, nor  is   it   noticeably   a  tonic to the tree.    Because lime sulphur   has   such   a limited use, the  total   consumption    throughout the  dry belt districts of   the   north western   states  and British Columbia is  decreasing rapidly.    It   is only fair  to say that in the  non-irrigated sections more is being used each  year.  Peach orchards should be sprayed  with   lime  sulphur each  year just  before the terminal buds burst;   this  spray, at ordinary   winter  sirength,  thoroughly applied, will  control  95  to 98 per cent of leaf curl and peach  worm without   further  application;  ordinarily   this   is   all the spraying  peach trees need.  Pear trees ordinarily require very  little spraying. The pear ieaf slug  can be controlled with   arsenate   of i  would   be  a 'questionable' practice,  and advisable only in the  must  extreme cases.    There are  no  records  to show lhat it has ever   been  tried  in    practice   either   in   America or  elsewhere, so that its value  is   theoretical.    I might say that the spray  calendar   mentioned was   not   pub-  dished by any member of   the horti  cultural branch of thid   department.'  In preparing this letter for   publication in the dry belt-sections' it has  been my object to assist in   forming  public   opinion    in   favor of the rational use of spraying.    The recommendation    of  needless   spraj'ing is  bound to create a   reactjon   against  tbe practice.     Many growers  will go  to the opposite extreme and   fail   to  do the necessary spraying, to the injury   of   themselves   and   all their  ueighbo.13.  Proper spraying with the right  materials, at the right time, and  properly done, is an approved and  .efficient method of controlling certain insects. It is to some extent  an insurance, but in many cases the  premium has been too high for the  protection secured.  It is my hope that this may prove  of value in enabling the growers 'to  determine what is best for their own  places.-' For practical - information  on spraying, the control of pests  generally, etc., the departmeut has  a series of circulars and a spray calendar, all of which will be gladly  sent free on request.

Filed.  A letter from J. J. Warren, president of the Kettle Valley line, stated  that the  company   had fulfilled its  part of the agreement with the   city  in   establshing  a  roundhouse here,  and requested the council to transfer  by deed the  lot  on   the   northwest  corner  of   Winnipeg   avenue    and  Third   street,    and  that   portion of  Third street lying   between    Winnipeg avenue and  Bridge  street, with  the exeeption of ten feet on the west  side.    In  the discussion   that   followed,   Aid.  Manly   expressed   the  belief that the city was not obligated  to give a deed to the  street  in   per  petuity, inasmuch as the agreement  with the city is only for  ten   years.  On   motion   of   Aid. Henniger and  McCallum, the clerk was  instructed  to comply  with   Mr.    Warren's   request, after securing legal   advice on  the points in doubt.  The volunteer fire department extended an invitation to the members  of the council to attend a "smoker"  to be held in the West end fire hall  on Friday evening, April 17. The  invitation was accepted 'vith thanks.  Charles Wekell and other residents of Observation avenue peti-  titioned the council to improve  that street; to lay a larger water  main, and to remove the retaining  wall at the Methodist parsonage  farther from the stre.it. The matter  was referred to the board of works,  with   instructions   to report at the  selves is: "Can it be done any  cheaper and still be done well?"  Some misunderstanding arose because I said I believed it could be  done both cheaper and better.  Many growers have told me,  when asked, that they did not know  what they were spraying for. They  should know.

He   also  reported that Rev. King had  made  a request that the alley at :his   residence   be.  opened up to Winnipeg  avenue.    He recommended that the  grade on Winnipeg avenue near.Mr.  Woodland's residence be reduced by  cutting away the top of tbe hill and  making a fill below, and the  council  concurred in this  recommendation.  Mr. Bonthron also   reported   that  no progress had been   made  in  the  matter of opening up, the street from  Observation   avenue   to    the  Great  Northern station, as the   board   had  been unable to secure the  right   of  way.    On motion of Aid. McCallum  and   Bickertjn,    the  council  plaed  itself on record by   declaring that it  is prepared to undertake  this  work  as soon as the right of way  can    be  secured trom > Observation avenue to  Water   street, and   to   build a sidewalk   along   the  new   street  if the  property   ownerB   will   stand    their  proportion of the   cost,   and extend  the waterworks system as far as possible.    In the event that the desired  right of way can   not  be obtained,  the   feasibility   of  extending Main  street   to   Cambridge  street, theuce  following that thoroughfare to Water  street, was discussed.  The chairmain of the   water   and  light committee recommended   that  an electric switch clock,   which automatically turns out electric lights  in any paat of the city when not required, be purchased.    He   was   of  the opinion of that it would pay for  I itself in a few months.    On motion  of Aid. Donaldson   and   Henneger,  he was authorized to   purchase   one  and to have it installed immediately.  Aid. McCallum suggested   that  a  day   be   set  aside for civic cleaning  up purposes.    On motion, a  resolution was adopted to  the effect   that  the  citizens   be notified to clean up  their yards, and to place the  rubish  in   convenient   places for  the city  teams to cali aud haul  it   away   on  April 27.  Mr. McCallum also drew attention to the fact that sotne time had  now elapsed since the milk supply  of the city had been tested. On  motion the matter was referred to  the health and relief committee,  with a recommendation that the  health officer be notified that the  milk must be tested from time to  time in future.  The chairman of the finance committee recommended the payment  of the monthly accounts.  Aid. Manly was granted leave  to introduce a temporary loan bylaw. It passed its first and second  readings, and then in committee of  the whole, with Aid. McCallum in  the chair, it was read clause by  clause and adopted as a whole.  Under a suspension of the rules, it  passed the third reading stage.  Aid. Bickerton was granted leave  to introduce a bylaw to amend the  electric light and power bylaw. It  was read a first and second time,  and then the council went into committee of the whole, with Aid. Hen-  (Conlinucd, on Page //.} THE   SUIn,    GRAND   FORKS,   B. C.  (%  G. A.

C  FRIDAY, APRIL 17,"  1914  While there are inter-  mittant complaints from various parts of the country of  hard times,.it maybe worthy  of notice that in Grand Forks  at present there is not a vacant dwelling house. This  may, of course, not be an  indication of a superabundance of ready cash, but it is  a sign of solid prosperity and  steady progress.  PREMIER McBride says he  does not know any more than  the newspapers about his appointment as Canadian high  commissioner. If he knows  as much on this subject as the  papers, ' it may be taken for  granted that he has been  slated for the position. They  have said so, and they are infallible.    .  The people in all parts of  the empire would deplore to  see Ireland become Mexican-  ized by becoming embroiled  in civil war.  Many a man who acquired  the patent medicine habit for  .some slight ailment, is now  taking the Keeley cure.  Intervention in Mexico  would be a literal illustration  of the phrase that it is sometimes necessary to fight to  obtain peace.  A Spanish scientist seems actually  to have succeeded in getting electricity out of the air in a commercially  available way.    The experiment was  made at a village  near  Madrid,   in  the presence of men in  the  entourage  of  King  Alpbonso,   who   had  sent them to watch the tests.   Senor  Yglesias drew electricity  from  the  air by antennae mounted  in  pairs  on  a  wooden tour, thirty-three feet  high, erected on  a  high   hill.

Charges have  been   made   against   the   Premier,  however, which if proven   undoubtedly will result in his taking a   very  long   rest   indeed.    The  allegations  are that Mr.    Flemming   has   been  profiling personally from the sale of  timber  license?.
