The   quality   of ,the   fruit  is  much improved by   thinning, especially where the trees are growing in  land that is deficient either in mois  ture or in available plant food.  .6, Thinning prevents premature  dropping. Ejropping of fruit is much  more prevalent-wnere two or more  fruits are gro\ying-on a spur.  7. The liability of winter injury  is'lessened.'' In the winter of 1908-9  the injury old,' trees suffered was  mainly where the trees had borne  arr'overload tneyear before: This  was ''the result j'of' the- weakened  vitality'of the ".trees" The strength  or the trees^ 'was taken - up in producing .trie'.'crop, and 'they ^bad.' not  enough   .vitality   to  ripen   the new  fruit buds arid"'shoots  >       i    t, '���������.-������������������ ��������� '���������    -   ���������  ���������8.

Besides getting friiit of a more  upon    the   marketing   organizations  uniform color, siz- and quality, thus  and upon   the   transportation  lines,  but without a high grade product to  .   handle, these organization's   can m t  get the desired results.  Most of tbe bearing trees are in a  thrifty condition, and the greatest  problem confronting the grower at  present is the thinning of the fruit  In commercial orcharding this prac  tice has long been proven to be one  of the greatest essentials to success.  Though the trees have been well  pruned, spraysd, cultivatedand fertilized, the highest.-qu'ality.and best  colored fruit can not -be "produced  unless each individual fruit has sufficient space and nourishment to  grow to normal size.  REASONS FOR THINKING.  1. Thinning is  an  operation that  requires a large amount of time, and  there is doubt in the minds of some  growers as to whether or   not   this  operation   pays.    That   it   pays to  thin overloaded trees is an indisputable fact that has been proven time  and time again.    It is unreasonable  to believe that the majority   of   varieties of commercial fruit trees  are  capable of carrying  and growing to  a good size, all the fruit that they set.  It is the nature of all trees to grow  and produce their kind of seed. The  seed of fruit trees, are of little   value  commercially, and it is the pulp  or  the edible portion of the   fruit that  is   required   for   the market.    The  larger the number of seeds the larger  the drain on both the soil  and  the  tree. The pulpy or edible portion of  the fruit takes nothing from the soil  but water, while the   seeds take out  large,  quantities   of   the    essential  plant   food.      The    pulp    consists  mainly of carbon, oxygen   and  hydrogen, all of   which are former!   in  air and water.    A bushel   of   large  apples   represents   less   plant   food  than a bushel of small ones  The   tree  year   and  materially reducing ��������� the cost of  picking and packing, thinned trees  are better capable of bearing annual  crops. For fruit trees to bear annual crops, the tree must be capable  of carrying its load of fruit to maturity, of producing new'growth and  developing and maturing new buds  for the next year's crop,  that -works for itself one  for the "grower the next does not  bring the largest returns. Thinning  the crop will do more to encourage  annual bearing" than a'ny other one  orchard practice.  In winter pruning a .certain  amount of thinning i_ done by removing some of the bearing wood.  The next thinning theoretically  would be when the trees are in  bloom. However, this is not practicable, for a great many of the blossoms never set, and some of those  that do are weak and drop very  soon. The best time to thin is after  the first dropping of the fruit, when  the permanent load of the tree can  reasonably be ascertained. The  thinning of apples, pears and peaches  is generally commenced when the  fruit is about the size of a hickory  nut.     ":'��������� '../''' .��������� '���������..  THINNING THE FRUIT.  . Generally, the thinning is done by  plucking off the undesirable fruit by  hand. Some of the growers prefer  to use thinning shears and remove  the fruit by clipping the young  stems. In this way there is- perhaps less danger of taking off the  wrong specimen. When thinning;  if one works in vertical spaces taking all the fruit possible from the  tree without changing position, the  best work can, as a rule, be done.  The amount of fruit to have on a  tree depends large! y upon the age,  vigor and strength of the tree.   More  . A special meeting,of. the local  game protection association in the  board of trade rooms Monday even-  ing to consider a communication  from Hon. Martin, Burrell, minister  of agriculture, in reference to stocking Christina lake with bass finger  lings.

Mr. Campbell states that  there is a marked improvement in  his health. It will be two or three  months yet, however, before he will  be able to tell whether he has obtained a complete cure or not, as  his Chicago physician did not guarantee a cure by this method.  Dollar and a Half Per Share  Will Be /^disbursed on  June 15 . .  There was enough activity in the  immediate vicinity of the Sunbeam  ranch last Sunday to keep one from  suffering with ennui. During the  afternoon autos passed the place  every two minutes, and the agitation of the air, caused   by   the   ma-  tiety of fish.    At that  time   favdra- :chines  -running   in- alternate direc  tion, male, the hammock on the  trout porch of the house swing automatically at a lively speed. For the  time being it looked as if the problem of perpectual motion had been  solved.  ble replies   were   received   from   (he  Dominion fisheries authorities.   The  letter   read   from   the   minister  of  agricultural on -Monday   night   put  another aspect on the situation.. Mr.  Burrell   stated   that it  was not the  policy of the minister of marine and  fisheries to stock   inland   bodies   of  water, with     indiginous   fish,    and  therefore   he  did   not think the request of the board of trade would be  granted.  As there are already  bass  in the lake, the members of   the  association were under the impression  that   the   minister  had penned bis  letter under a misapprehension, and  the   secretary     was   instructed   to  further explain matters to him   and  to renew the request for the  finger-  lings.     It    was also    decided   to  send   Mr.   BurrelPs  letter,  and the  reply to it, to Mr. McLeod,  overseer  of fisheries, at Nelson, and ask him  to   use   his influence   with the department for the grunting of the request.  A Montreal dispatch of the 16th  inst. says that David McNicoll,  vice-president of the Canadian Pacific railway, left that city that  afternoon for Kettle Valley construction to meet President J. J.  Warren, of the Kettle Valley road,  at Penticton, with a view. to..rushing construction on the line.  Geo. W. Rumberger, the founder  of Phoenix and for several terms  chief executive of the city of mines,  has returned to the Boundary after  having .pent some years in Eegina.  He has disposed of his business in  terests in the Saskatchewan capital  and will again be a familiar figure  in the Boundary.  The directors of the Granby  Consolidated met in New York on Tues  day, May 19, and declared the regular qu&rterly   dividend of  $1.50 a  share on the issued capitalization of  149,648 shares, amounting to 8224,-  472.    The announcement   ihat   the  dividend had been   declared  caused  Granby   to   advance   50   cents the  share on the stork exchanges.  .   The   disbursement   will    be made  June   15   to   the   stockholders   on  record May 20, when the books will  be closed, and will bring the   grand  total of payments up to ������5,215,990.  The recent announcement that the  Granby   company    would    have  to  float  a   loan   of $3,000,000 soon to  liquidate its  outstanding  indebtedness, $>1,500,000 of  which is  represented by  obligations  to  Canadian  banks   and   the  remainder  by  the  purchase price of recently   acquired  properties, led many persons closely  in touch with tbe Granby   situation  to doubt .if  the  quarterly dividend  would  be  forthcoming,  and  while  the declaration has settled the question  temporarily, -they  assert   still  that there is  no  definite   assurance  of the payments being continued.  fruit should be removed from a weak  2.

As a rule the center apple of the cluster is the best one to  leave because it matures better and  generally grows to a bigger size,  shape and color.  In order for peaches to grow to a  marketable size they must be . well  thinned. A great deal of the peach  thinning can be accomplished by  winter thinning, but as a rule this  is not sufficient. Peaches are generally thinned to a distance of four to  six inches, depending on the easiness or lateness of the variety, Late  varieties are thinned to a greater  distance than the earlier ones. The  peach that the market demands is  larger than ninety to the box. The  same rules that apply to thinning  apples also apply to peaches; the  stronger and more vigorous thu: tree,  the greater number can be left on  the tree.  Cherries,    plums,   apricots    and  prunes seldom need much   thinning  The baseball game at Danville  Sunday afternoon, between the  Grand Forks and Danville teams,  was won by Grand Forks by a score  of 13 to 6. A large number of autos  were -requisitioned into service to  transport the local fans to and  from the game.  In their third match in the Boundary football league, at Phoenix on  Monday afternoon, between the  Grand Forks and Phoenix elevens,  the members of the Grand Forks  team again demonstrated their  superior ability, when they scored  3 goals to 1.

For tbe seven days ending May  14, the Granby smelter in this city  treated 23,89S tons of ore, 23,263  tons of which were from the company's own properties and 275 tons  of foreign ore. For the same period  Granby shipped 435,000 pounds of  blister copper.  For the year the Granby has  treated a total of 447.900 tons of  ore, 439.234 tons being from the  company's mines at Phoenix and  8.666 tone from foreign properties.  The blister copper shipments for the  year were 7,509,652 pounds.  tree and at picking timp only good-  sized fruit is-ieft to be removed. It is; thin fruit by inches.

FRIDAY,  MAY 22,   1914  Nearly-two "years ago J. J.  Hill, president of the Great  Northern railroad, prophesied  the financial depression that  prevails on this continent .today. For this service he was  called a pessimist and'calamity howler. A wise man, ��������� in  order to be popular with the  public, must either be a hypocrite or keep a padlock on  his mouth.  There may be some grains  of truth in the/periodical lam-  pooningsthe Greenwood Ledge  hurls at this city, but recently  they have' occurred at such  frequency that we are inclined  to believe ' that they are  prompted largely by jealousy  of Grand Forks' advantages  over our neighboring city.  Every knock is said to be a  boost. If this is true, we should  not complain. Still,, we be1  lieve it is a good policy for  every community to conduct its business according  its own lights, without interference from meddling neighbors.  The peace envoys have  commenced work on their job  at Niagara Falls, and everything is quiet at Vera Cruz.  The only war-like spots  on the globe today are in Ulster, in the' militant suffragettes' camps, and in the  British house of commons.  Calgary is oil mad, and  the stock brokers are making  fortunes. Whether the people buying the stock will become oil magnates or not, is  yet problematical.

I.v an editorial on ".Railway  Subsidies," tho London Times  suggests that much   political  importance should be attached  to the outburst in  Canada of  hostility   to    the'   Canadian  Northern contract. 'The paper  says.that "the giving of subsidies or guarantees is a sound  method   of   facilitating    the  equipment  of new countries  with mil ways,   provided   the  authority   granting    them   is  really capable of making efficient   investigations   of    the  plans   submitted   and is free  from . improper influence.  In  practice, parliamentary bodies  in new countries  are  not all  that could be desired in either  respect,  but the  errors they  commit are more often attributable to enthusiasm for rapid  development than to  sinister  motives.   Soveral of the western provinces, if not the federal government  of Canada,  have   recently   done    rather  more than  was strictly   prudent in this matter of railway  guarantees, and it will not be  a bad thing if the debates on  Canadian Northern  subsidies  should lead to a pause."

'  Joint Meeting in Greenwood  Tonight to Discuss Elimination of Passenger Train  The report which has been in circulation   during  the  past  week  to  the   effect   that the Canadian   Pacific Railway company intended, on  the 6th of June, to take  off  one  of  its passenger trains on the Boundary  division^ culminated   in   a   special  meeting   of   the   executive   of   the  board of trade last  night, when the  situation   was   discussed.    A combined effort of the Boundary   towns  will be made to dissuade   the  com-'  puny from carrying out the contemplated   change.    If   the    intentions  of the company are carried  into   effect in accordance with  the  rumor,  ���������   the Boundary district will be served  only (by   a   passenger   train   from  the   east    every    other   week-day,  that is,-it will run  from   Nelson   to  Midway one day, and from Midway  back   to    Nelson    the   next   day.  This   elimination   of   one-half  the  present service has raised a storm of  protest throughout the district.  At the meeting last night thesitu-  . ation   was    thoroughly   ventilated.  A committee consisting of President  DeCew, N. L Mclnnes, C. H. Niles  and George Clark was appointed   to  arrange a meeting in Greenwood tonight of representatives from Grand  Forks, Greenwood,   Phoenix,   Midway, Cascade and Rock  Creek.    At  this meeting it is expected a definite  course to pursue will be arrived  at.  Those present at last night's gathering were of the opinion that Second  Vice-President Bury should   be  informed  of  any action taken by the  meeting,but .that a complaint should  be  lodged  direct  with   the railway  commission at Ottawa.  The Nelson board of trade will  also bold a meeting tonight to take  action on this subject.  Will Visit   the Mines and  Smelters of the Boun-  dary District  Eighteen students in mining who  have completed three years of tbeir  course at McGill   university,   Mon-  time travelling through the   mining  regions   of   the  Dominion'  making  observations of practical work' at the  mines    throughout    the    country,  which   is compulsory  introductory  work   of   the   fourth    year  of  the  university course,   are  expected  to  reach Grand Forks today, and   after  an inspection of the Granhy smelter  will visit the mines at Phoenix   and  the B  C, Copper company's smelter  at Greenwood.  All students in mining at McGill  who are  commencing  their  fourth  and final 'year's  work,   unless they  have previously spent a year  or so  at practical mining, are required   to  take the excursion,  which  lasts  for  five or six weeks and includes  one  week of field geology and  four  or  five weeks of  visits  to the  mines,  mills and smelters of the Dominion.  At  the  end' of  the  excursion   the  students take   up  positions  in   the  mines for the remainder of the summer in order  that  they   may  gain  practical   experience  in  the  work.  The tourists travel by special standard   sleeper .car and  have  also  a  special   car for their  baggage  and  stops of any length are  made  only  at those points where the mines  are  close    of    access.      After    visiting  Greenwood they will go to Trail and  Rossland, where the party will disband, the majority of the  members  taking work in the mines and others  returning east  to  take  up  engagements which   they  have  made  en  route.  The itinery of the students before  reaching Grand Forks included   one  wee'k of field geology near  Montrea  and   visits   to   Cobalt.
