For the same period  Granby shipped 696,643 pounds of  .. blister copper.  "      ��������� - .~ .  Irrigating the Home Garden  One of the commonest and most  serious mistakes of the amateur  gardener, says the Youth's Companion, is to spray his garden every  day with hose or watering can, especially in very hot weather. The  effect on a superheated plant of a  sudden drenching with cold water is  to check growth, and often to con  vert a naturally healthy plant into a  permanent weakling.  But since moisture is  essential to  all vegetation, the mistake of course  lies not in applying the  water,   but  in the way in which  it ie. applied.  To   obtain   the   best results, take a  pointed weeding hoe, or an ordinary  hoe   held   cornerwise, and draw a  trench five or six  inches   deep   between two rows of vegetables. If the  rows are more fhan two feet   apart,  make   a   trench  parallel with each  row, eight or ten inches to one side.  Then   either  lay   the nozzle of the  hose in one end of   the   trench,   or  pour   in   water from a watering pot  from which you have removed   the  sprayer.    The quantity should depend on the character  of  the   soil.  If it is a heavy,   moisture-retaining  clay, it will be necessary   to  fill the  trench only once; but on sandy soil,  where the water seeps through rapidly, and disappears within a  minute or two, it may be   necessary   to  fill it twice, or even three times.  Treat the entire kitchen garden in  the same manner, and when all the  water has been absorbed, fill in the  trenches with the loose, dry earth  that you removed, and thus prevent  surface evaporation. Unless in exceptionally hot weather, one application a week will suffice. As the  water is warmed by filtration  through some inches of sun-haked  earth before it comes in contact with  the delicate rootlets, it causes no  shock. If you divide the garden  into sections, and water one section  a day, the work will involve less  time and labor, and require less  water. The same method is applica-  Win Championship Match  In a well played match between  the Grand Forks and Mother Lode  football teams at the agricultural  grounds on Wednesday afternoon,  Grand Forks won by a score of 4 to  1. By this win the Grand Forks  team have made their position safe  for the championship of the Boundary league, ��������� and although the  schedule- of games is not as yet  all played, the local club are the.  winners of the Jackson cup, which  has been donated by J. R. Jackson,.  M.P.P. for Greenwood, as emblem  atic of.the footbalPchampionsh'iprof  the Boundary.  The city band was in attendance  and with tbeir music added much  to the enjoyment of the large crowd  of spectators.  CUSTOMS RECEIPTS  II. R. Gilpin, customs officer at this  port, makes the following detailed report of the customs receipts at the  various sub customs offices, as reported to the chief office in this city,  for the month of May, 1914:  Grand Forks...... .....;$;3i205.42  Phoenix........     3.736.96  Carson         128.42  Carcade ...'...........  86.09  Total $17,156.89  The receipts for the same month  in 1913 were: Grand Forks 84,626,-  49,Phoenix 81,522.72,Carson $136.57,  Cascade $40.25; total'88,309 65.      .

It forces itself on our  notice in a undred objectionable,  ways To effectively control this  pest.,' in orchards, parks and boulevards, artificial methods must supplement the natural forces of destruction.  Spraying, to be effective, must be  done immediately after the leaves  first come out and as the caterpillars  are hatching. Later, when the caterpillars are larger, it takes a much  bigger dose of poison to kill them  und the difficulties of complete ex  termination are greatly increased.  The sprays found   most effective  are as follows:  Paris green fcpray���������  Paris green 1 lb-  Quick lime (best) 2 lbs.  Water 160 gais.  The lime prevents  "burning" the  foliage.  Lead arsenate���������  Lead arsenate 4 lbs.  Water 40 gals  Banding the trunks of trees with  "tree-tanglefoot," a mixture of crude  castor oil and resin in equal parts,  is' -a'^UBeful precaution to prevent  migration ]from infested to non-  infested trees.  Jarring trees will cause the caterpillars to descend, and thfy can then  be killed on the ground or while  dangling in the air.  - -Burning' with torches may be  practised when the caterpillars are  gathered in clusters.  Handpicking the eggs in the winter time is laborious but effective.  Birds may be encouraged by keep  ing down cats, and providing good,  safe nesting places. Birds known  to eat caterpillars are: The yellow-  billed and black-billed cuckoos, the  blue jay, scarlet tanager, white-  bellied nuthatch, American redstart,  chipping sparrow, Baltrmore oriole,  yellow-bellied, sapsneker, cat-bird  and wood thrush.  Parasites of various kind feed  upon the tent caterpillars, though  few people, except entomologists,  are acquainted with them.

It is reported that only twenty-  five miles of steel remains to be laid  on the Kettle Valley to connect up  Midway and Penticton. On the remaining twenty five miles practically all the grading has been done,  but delay in laying the steel will be  occasioned through the many bridges  which will have to be constructed.  The steel is now laid for eighty-  seven miles from Midway and ballasting has been completed toCarmi.  Near the Summit the construction  of eighteen bridges was necessary n  three and a quarter miles. It is expected the line to Penticton will be  completed about the end of July.

McKee performing the ceremony.  The literary and musical entertainment given in the Methodist  church on Monday evening, under  the auspices of the Ladies' Aid, by  Mrs. Belle Rose Emslie, attracted a  large audience. The entertainment  was given by special request of some  of those who heard Mrs. Emslie in  the Presbyterian church last week.  There was an entire change of program,   and  those who were present  i spent a very  enjoyable  evening in  listening to a literary  treat.

' The company claims  that it lost money on the daily  service. This may be - true;  but as a freight-hauling road  this line is said to be the best  paying branch of the Canadian Pacific railway system, and  this fact should have carried  more weight with the officials  than itapp'ears to have done. By>  taking off one train, the company has greatly crippled the  s :rvice between these two  points and inconvenienced the  travelling public and every  resident along the line.

Grand Forks has treated-, the.  Canadian   Pacific     Eailway  company very generously.. The  city has granted the company  concessions that might easily  be worth hundreds  of thousr,  ands of dollars in a few .years.  In view of this  fact, the  citizens feel highly incensed over  the   action    of   the   railway  officials. Fortunately, our city  does not depend altogether on  the Canadian Pacific railway  for its transportation facilities,  ancl  if the  citizens and business, men would take concerted action, it would be-an easy  matter to convince the officials;  of the road that they have  made a business blunder.

KEEPTHjNGSCLEAH  After ''Clean-up Day"  the  Worke Should Continue  Through the Year  Of course we have had our cleanup day. There are few towns and  cities in Canada that have not, and  every citizen who takes a pride in  his home and in his town usually  lends a hand.  'During the long winter months  there accumulates somewhere about j  the house, waste material that should j  have been disposed of day by day, ���������!  for we could destroy much more  than we do in our furnaces or in our i  kitchen stoves.  It'is the accumulation of this  heterogeneous litter in our homes  and in the yards and lanes, this  careless handling of domestic waste,''  which is the cause of the new fad o?  "clean-up day," a general action on  the part of all citizens, which is all  right in its way and--produces good  results. But, reader, have yr>\r  learned the lesson while gathering  together these belated boxes and  barrels of refuse? The lesson is:  When clean, stay   clean.    To   tidy  up your back yard once a year id as  bad. as giving your body .a yearly  bath.. As yo.u require to wash yourself daily, so it is essential that each  citizen should care for the domestic  refuse and prevent its accumulation  upon his premises. ,  .What cannot be burned in the  kitchen stove should be removed by  the health ' authorities, and if your  city'-has not inoperationa municipal  refuse-collection system, then it is  your duty as a ratepayer to insist  upon one'being installed forthwith.  If the., good work begun by you  docs riot- proceed henceforth wiih  regularity and system, then your  "clean-up day" will have been a  f-i i I ii re.  The question for each one of us is:  Willyou assist in making-it impos  sible lor anyone in your municipality to suggt-st that "clean-up day"  is a necessity? ���������    ,  The Fight Against Cancer  So long as a sufferer from disease  has ground for hope that he may''be  cured by som's other means he will  riot resort to" a surgical operation.  There te" a very natural shrinking  frdrti'treatment by the knife, and; it  is submitted to only a������ a last resort.  Once "tflie fact ---is realized, however,  that through surgery alone lies the  hope of recovery, the patient will in  most   cases   philosophically   resign  himself to it, although there are  many instances of men refusing to  consent to an amputation and paying the penalty with their lives.  ��������� In the case of cancer there ' have  been many false hopes held out that  the disease might be cured by drugs,  electric applications, massage, X  rays and radium. One by one these  agencies have been tested, and one  by one they have failed. The case is  reported from Detroit' of a woman  who spent'$3000 for a radium treatment that merely shortened her life.  AnV .examination showed that not  only had the radium failed to check  he malignant.growth,.but that it had  corroded the healthy surrounding  tissue, and thus had -made easier the  advance of the destroying organism  The institution to which this unfortunate woman had confided herself  recently came into publicity by an  application of S12o,00() worth of  radium upon a congressman who  perished. It is' of tlie inmost importance that these striking, -failures  of radium to'cure cancer should'be  known. The knowledge will make  sufferersthe less unwilling to submit  to a; burgical operation, and however often, surgery has failed in these  cas(S, it is certain that surgery a'lpne  can boast of any considerable number of cures. ��������� It's triumphs, would be  far more numerous! but .for the mischievous notion that there are other  curative agents.  One of the great obstacles to- the  medical profession in tbe treatment  of cancer'is .tj)at so many of the  cases are presented when the time  for successful operation has passed.  Instead of looking forward wistfully  to the day when a specific cure for  cancer will be discovered the need.is  for the public to be educated to the  necessity of regular medical examinations.' Not only incipient cancer,  but other diseases might thus,.be detected in time; Given' expert and  timely' diagnosis and competent surgery,'/the great majority of cancer  cases! a re as curable as early detected  tuberculosis.��������� Toronto Mail and  Empire.   -  In general, it may be stated that  the .most dangerous forest fire  ���������periods in tbe west are in middle  and late summer; in the east they  aie in the spring aud full.

There where bul-  . let hiss and cannon roar, where gat-  Sings guns hurl out their deadly  bullets at the rate of three thousand  a minute, where screaming shells  charged with peroxilene burst,into a  leaden rain of deadly missiles sweeping away every vestige of life for a  space of two hundred yards; there,  where men, mangled, mutilated beyond recognition, writhe and groan  and die; there, where pain-maddened  horses expire in lingering torture���������  there you may find the answer to  the question, "What is war?"  To take a nation's youth, strong  and brave, generally- its toilers in  mill and factory and shop who have  no more grievance against their fellows whom they are bidden to kill  than against their next-door neighbors, to take these who brought on  no quarrel, have no political, nor  financial, nor any other selfish end  to gain, aiid send them to the battle's front to murder and be murdered���������and to do it in the name of  .patriotism, claiming the Eternal  Righteousness is on your side���������this  is war.  -To rend, riddle, dismembei   your  human brother, and to do  this  under the sanction of law���������this is war.  To break the hearts of women and  crush   them    beneath   the   wasting  loads of care, to put the tire out  on  a   thousand   hearths,   to  create an  army of fatherless children in a day,  and to do it   legally,    thanking   the  good   God   that   you have done all  ttiis to your neighbor before  he did  it to you���������this is war.  To waste the fruit of human toil,  generations of it in a day. to sack  and pillage city and town, to- trample ripening and golden harvests, to'  turn a paradise of hillside and valley  into a flame swept, blackened landscape sodden with human blood,  and to sing Te Deurns when it is  over���������this is war.  To settle the quarrels  of   nations  by might and not right, by machines  that wipe out human  lives at the  rate of a thousand a minute,   when  it could have been settled by a  half  dozen   honest,   clear-headed   men,  without   the   firing of a gun or the  destruction of a single life���������this is  the shame, the   crime against   man  and God which Christian   men   call  war. -  If fathers and mothers whose sons  may some day be summoned into a  war brought on by men who will  never go themselves to be shot to  pieces, would, but read the story of  a twentieth century field of battle,  and see but for a single moment, in  imagination, their boys the victims  of that merciless onslaught of bullets, dynamite, lyddit���������������see their  scorched, dismembered bodies, hear-  their dying groans, there would be  iio more war from henceforth, forever.���������F. H. It.  which is guaranteed to be  equally   as  efficacious:'  Against that .pest of lawns, the yellow dandelion, the lawn mower, has  little effect,.for the plant is perennial,  and perpetuates itself by a long tap  root that penetrates far into the soil.  Digging the weed up, one by one, is a  tedious task,- and often fails to accom  plish a complete destruction, inasmuch  as it is difficult to remove all of the  tenacious root.  A contributor describes a method of  extermination that is easy to follow,  and is effective. It is simply to spray  the dandelions with .a solution made  by dissolving iron sulphate  in   water.  The sulphate comes in granular  form, and'.should be used in the proportion of two pounds to a gallon of  water.  One gallon of the solution will cover  about 800 square feet. It can be applied from a sprinkling can or a hand  pump. The finer the spray the better  and the more thoroughly the dandelions are soaked the surer will be the  resultrs.  The best time to do the work is in  the forenoon, after the dew has disap  peared, and when fair weather seems  probable for the next forty-eight  hours. The solution should not be  applied on a freshly mown lawn; nor  should the lawn be mowed or sprinkled  for three days after the spray has been  used. '���������  If the dandelions are thick and  have been allowed to go to seed, it  may be necessary to use the iron sulphate three or more times during the  season.

Another Dandelion Cure  Last week The Sun made the statement that an application of salt would  destroy dandelions.

Concrete is composed of  cement and broken stone, which are  mixed with water ,by  a' hired man  in   overalls   and %red,flanhel,shirt  and converted into &_sort of geological   Irish   stew.
