dead before they have been set in
tbe ground for lack of such precau
tion. Make the hole in wbich tbe
tree is to be set considerably wider
and deeper than is necessary to ac

partly filled with good garden loam
or the surplus soil wbicb has been
removed and set aside when making
the hole. Do not plant too deep.
Roots need air. Allow the roots to
spread naturally in tbe hole. Do not
bend or crumple tbem up. Be sure
that tbe eartb is well packed and in
contact with tbe roots.
In setting a tree care should be
taken from the very start to see that
the stem is kept perfectly vertical.
Any attempt made to straighten it
after the planting is done is liable

In tbe current issue of the Illus
trated Canadian Magazine, published by the Canadian Farestry asso
ciation, there appears a timely article on the seasonable subject "Tree
Planting," specially writtenjby B. R.
Morton, B Sc F., Dominion forestry
branch, Ottawa. Some suggestions
from tbis well known authority
herewith given sbould prove of assistance to intending tree planters in
all parts of Canada.
It is well to remember tbe injunction of Dr. Fernow, lately dean of
the faculty of forestry at Toronlo:
''Transplanting a tree from one site
to another is a surgical operation
during wbicb the patient needs ape
oial attention."
Spring planting sbould begin as
soon as possible after tbe ground is
thawed out and dried sufficiently to
work the soil. It should not beat
tempted after the buds begin to open.
It may be said in general tbat April
and early May represent the proper
time for planting.
Look firat for a tree that  has  a
All brood is taken from the brood
chamber and placed in a super
above a queen excluder. Tbe brood
chamber is tben filled witb empty
combs and the queen with some of
the bees from the brood combs are
left below in tbe brood chamber.
All queen cells in the super containing tbe raised brood can be destroyed nine days later.
A more effective method is to remove the queen from the colony at
tbe time the first active queen calls
are discovered and to destroy the
cells. Nine days later again examine
the colony and destroy all queen
cells and introduce a young laying
It is a good plan to keep the
queen's wings clipped, for should a
swarm emerge the queen will be un
able to fly and will fall to tbe ground
wben sbe leaves the bive. Tbe queen
must be found and caged wbile tbe
swarm is in tbe air and the parent
colony moved to a new stand. A
new hive fitted witb drawn combs
or full sheets of foundation is placed
on the vacant stand and the swarm
will return, when the queen can be
released and allowed to run io witb
tbe swarm, tbe supers from the parent hive should be given to the
swarm. All queen cells except one
should be destroyed in the parent
colony to prevent afters warms, or all

The cool roi of swarming is one of
the mod important factors of beekeeping. Swarming is then.tural
method by which bee.- increase; tbis
causes a division of tbe working
force of the colony, which in turn is
a hindrance to tbe best results in
honey production.
The beekeeper's problem at thc
beginning of the honey flow is to
prevent a disvision of the working
force of the colony and at the same
time to maintain tbe storing instinct
of tba bees to tbe utmort degree.
Colonies do not all behave alike
as to swarming. Some colonies make
no attempt lo swarm even if swarm*
ing is general; other colonies will
respond to simple dreventive measures, *hile others will persist in
swarming until tbe storing instinct
is completely subordinated and the
desire to swarm is satisfied.
Colonies may often be prevented
by: Tbe introduction of a young
queen early in the season; giving
pleply of room for maximum brood
production prior to and during the
early part of the main honey flow;
providing plenty of super room for
the storage of honey; giving adequate
shade and veutilation duringjtbe bot
test part of tbe season; raising a few
combs of emerging brood to a super
two or tbree weeks in succession to
relieve congestion of the brood cham

Colonies that bave made advanced preparation for swarming*by
having larvae in queed cells often
require more drastic treatment.
In localities where the swarming
season is short the separation of
queen and brood is usually effective.

at one* raflect ths prosperity or depression that may exist in any part
of tho oountry, and the sum total of
the year's operations as analyzed ln
this report may confidently be accepted as an unerring indication of
how the country hae prospered during the twelve months under review.
At this late date there is no news
in the statement that 1921 was not
a year of uninterrupted progress,
hut it is interesting to review the
period, and in the light of some such
comprehensive report as that of thi
C. P. R. to clearly see in what direction Canada's business affairs are
moving. In this respect the C. P. R.
report for 1921 is.an outstanding
example. In spite of a large decrease in gross earnings, the company Is able to show an increase in
net as the result of rigid economy
throughout its working operations,
and in so doing it has pointed out to
all Canada the shortest road back to
normal trade activity.
During 1921 the company's gross
earnings were $193,021,854 as
against $216,641,849 in 1920, a decrease of $23,619,494, or 10.20 per
cent. This decline followed naturally upon the general business depression resulting in lessened passenger and freight traffic, decreases
in both passenger and freight rates,
and to a partial crop .failure in some
parts of Western Canada.
The Company's sales of agricultural land in the year were 153,304
acres for $2,872,000, or an average
of $18.74 per acre. Included in this
area were 6,686 acres of irrigated
land which brought $55.18 an acre,
So that the average price paid for
tho balance was $17.17. Und sales
reflected a large decrease in acreage, but as Is pointed out by President E. W. Beatty in Ue annual

to $168,820,114 as compared wit!
$183,488,304 in 1920, the result ol
the decrease being that the net earnings for the year showed sn increasi
of $1,048,696, totalling $34,201,74.
■is against $38,168,044 in the previous year. The year's operating expenses amounted to 82.28 per cent
of the gross earnings and the net tt
17.72 per cent, as compared witl
S4.70 per cent, and 16.30 per cent
respectively in 1921.
How large a part the Oanadiat
Pacific plays in industrial life ma}
be gathered from the fnct that mor<
than half, or 63.84 per cent, of tht
total $158,820,114 working expense!
for the year was paid out in wages,
while one quarter, or 25.02 per cent
was used for the purchase of supplies. The purchase of fuel and supplies for locomotives took anothei
15.61 per cent, and government taxea
consumed 3.49 per cent.
The contraction in the country's
general trade is perhaps more clearly
indicated in the following figures on
passenger and freight traffic. During the year 15,186,081 passengers
were carried by the company, as
against 16,769,555 in 1020. The
average journey was 89.67 miles and
average fare paid was $2.59. In
1920 the average journey -vas 102.46
miles, and the average fare paid
was $2.89. Thus we see that not
only was the number of passengers
smaller in 1921, but eac-ji pas.s-.nger,
on an average, made a shorter tr:p,
and paid less in fare.
The total tonnage of all classes of
freight, multiplied by the number of
miles it travelled, was 12,124,675,679
tons, as against 15,687,014,791 in
1920,. a decrease of 3,662,339,212
The company plans to spend $10,-
622,187 during the coming year on
replacement and extensions that will
improve the operating facilities ol
the entire system and incidentally
help to revive industrial activity.
The amount of spring irrigation
work depends to a large extent on
the work done tbe previous fall.
Ditching and I tcrals should be
cleaned of sediment; and flumes,
weirs, gateweys and culverts repaired, so as to be ready when tbe
water is turned on. Irrigation will
not take the place of cultivation
and as cultivation comes first in tbe
spring itinerary, it sbould be thor
ougb. If there are any lumps or de
pressions these should be smoothed
out with scraper or float, or with
botb. Time spent in levelling land
is amply repaid in tbe labor and
time saved in irrigating, and the
more even distribution of water,
wbicb results in increased crops,
Tbe more thorough the cultivation
tbe better tbe seed bed, the better
tbe germination, tbe better the soil
to receive tbo irrigation watai and
the better the crops.
As most of tbe irrigation in Brit
isb Columbia is by tbe furrow or
corrugated system, it is necessary to
bave some implement or cbntriv-
ance to make the furrows after tbe
crop has been sown, A simple fur
rower bas been constructed at tbe
experimental station at Invermere,
and diagrams and description will
be furnished to anyone making ap
ing application.
Wben sbould water be applied?
This is a question to whicb a defin
ite answer can not be given, except
tbat irrigation should commence before the plant shows distress. Do
not irrigate, if possible, before tbe
orop hss germinated, ae in early
spring the irrigation water is very
cold and will lower tbe soil temper*
ature considerably and retard and in
some cases materially affect germination. Thrifty growth sbould char
acterize a crop from start to finish.
Even a small degree of drought will
induce some plants to enter upon
tbe maturing process, and further
irrigation may start an undesirable
new growth ratber tban promote tbe
old. This is seeo many times in tbe
distorted tubers in a potato orop.
Many irrigators make an examination oi tbe soil to determine wben
o irrigate. Some soil is taken from
a few inches below tbe surface and
pressed in tbe hand. If when released tbe soil holds together and
shows the finger marks, it is not
necessary to irrigate; but if it does
not bold together it needs irrigation.
Tbe quantity of water to apply at
eacb irrigation is entirely a local
problem depending upon the crop,
the soil and tbe weather, and will
come to the irrigator with experience. Cultivated crops require less
water than uncultivated crops, as
tbe loss from evaporation can be reduced by surface cultivation. Alfalfa, clover and pastures require
about twice as much water as tbe
cereals, and sbould be kept moist
throughout tbe season. Grains re
quire tbe largest amount of water at
flowering time.
Cultivate if possible b-foro and
after irrigating, beforehand to make
tbe soil more receptive, and afterwards to form a mulch and check
evaporation. D.> not put off irrigating expecting it to rain, as tbo light
rainfall in eastern British Columbia
has but little effect on lbe amount
of irrigation water required.—R. O.

Well Known Pioneer Barrister of This City Dies
While Dressing to Attend Court
Vancouver, May 6.—Hon. W. H.
P. Clement, justice of tbe supreme
court of British Columbia, died suddenly Wednesday morning at his
residence, 2001 Fifteenth avenue
west, wbile dressing to attend oourt,
wbere bs was sitting on a case. Some
years ago Mr. Justice Clement suffered n partial paralytic stroke,
and a second came Wednesday
morning, accompanied by a hemorrhage of tbe brain, death being almost instantaneous.
William Henry Pope Clement was
born at Vienna, Out, in 1858, and
graduated from Toronto University
and Ogoode Hall. He was called
to tbe Ootario bar in 1880, and
practiced in Toronto from 1898 to
1890. He was a member of the Yukon Council aod legal adviser to
tbat body.   -
In 1901 he became a membar of
tbe British Columbia bar and took
up his residence at Graud Forks.
Four years later he was appointed
judge for Yale county, and In 1906
was elevated to the supreme court
Twice during bis career as a lawyer Mr. Clement tried his hand at
politics first ae a candidate f r tbe
house of commons in West York in
1891, and in 1903 as candidate for
the British Columbia legislature from
Grand Forks. In both instances hi
was unsuccessful.
Mr. Justice Clement was recogoiznl
as an authority on the Canadian coi -
stitution and on the history of tbe
Domioiou. He was the author of
"The Law of Ihe Canadian Constitution," first published in 1892, and
of a "History of Canada," published
n 1897 aud for a time widely used
in the schools of the Dominion.
Mr. Justice Clement is sdrvived
by bis wife and two daughters. His
only son.Capl. C. M. Clement,M.C.,
a member of the flying corps, was
killed in action in 1917.

The Genoa conference has been a sad disappointed, as far as it has gone. Instead of
carrying out the work of its announced purpose—solving the economic problems of Europe, it has increased hatred and suspicion
among the Old World nations, and fomented
strife and jealousies between governments
hitherto reasonably friendly. If a change for
better does come soon, the European nations
should recall their delegates and return to the
statu quo existing before the convening of the
conference and allow each country to work out
its own salvat on in its own way.
Pensions for widowed mothers are becoming general. A dozen years ago a destitute
mother could do one of three things: put her
children into an institution, keep them at
home uncared for while she worked; out, or
stay at home with them and starve. Of course
everyone of the three was bad for the state,
for citizenship and for justice. Illinois passed
a state-wide funds to parents act in 1911, and
now forty-one states in the American Union
have such a law on their statute books.
Astronomy has the glory of being the oldest
of the sciences. It was by watching the spangled heavens that man first got his conception
of an ordered universe, and from that the
thirty-seven highways that cross the border.
Meanwhile the Canadian courts are helping
by recognizing an agreement to sell liquor to
be sent out of Canada to the United States as
a crime, and a man convicted of -the offense
was heavily fined a few weeks ago.
Education in Industry Is Not a Function
to Be Left to the Worker
Education in industry is not a function that
can be left to the workor. It is not a responsibility tbat can be shifted to the individual
foreman and superintendent. It is not limited
to such agencies as continuation schools and
classroom instructions within or without the
plant. Neither is it limited to the casual and
incidental expediences that are bad in the shop
from day to day, says W D. Scott, president
Northwestern University. Eduoation in industry is progressing slowly, but in some firms it
is provided for according to a plan formulated
by an expert who attempts to utilize all the
equipment and all the personnel of the plan t
and strives to provide an effective educatio n
for every employee of the company during th e
entire period of his service.
Employers everywhere have recognized the
folly of attempting to handle men by the ap -
plication of the old methods based on fear and
wages. We have been passing through an era
of panaceas in stimulating men to action.
Prominent among these panaceas are profit-
sharing, employee representation, industrial
democracy, piece rate, welfare, rigid supervision and inspection and the open shop;
The application of science in discovering
effective methods of stimulating men has been
much greater than we are able to appreciat e
at the present time. The teaching of modern
psychology on individual differences has had
immediate application.   Psychology has em-

A young physician who had charge of the
medical and surgical relief work of a manu
facturing plant asked the doctor of the public health service how he could induce his em
ployers to raise his salary, which was twelve
hundred dollars a year.    "Study the needs of|
your plant," advised  the service doctor; "in
vestigate the causes of accidents and of headaches and colics; suggest ways  whereby they
can be reduced and the lost time   can   be
saved, and see what will happen." Six months
later the phys'cian told the servicedrctor that
he had acted on his advice and that his em?
ployers had doubled  his salary.    Preventive
hygiene is always worth twice as much as relief work.
White pine seed fit for use in nurseries is
worth about two dollars a pound, and the
purchasable supply depends entirely on human cone gatnerers. The red squirrel, which
cuts down a great many more cones than it
needs, renders therefore a real service. In the
white pine belt many people earn a tidy sum
every fall by searching the woods for the fat
cones that the energetic squirrel outs off.
It has been repeated again and again  that
the Germans, in spite of  their   complaints
about the reparation demands, are taxed  far
less  than either  the French or the English.
One of the foreign correspondents of the New
York Times puts thc thing in a very effective
form   when   he  says:    This year every man,
woman and child in France contributes thirty-
five dollars in gold for repair of the  devastation  the  Germans  wrought in France.    T^iis
year every  man,   woman and child  in  Germany is asked by the reparation  commission
to contribute three dollars gold  in  cash and
six dollars gold in materials. And the German
chancellor replies that Germany can not. Since
tlio end of the war the French have paid  two
hundred   dollars   gold   [ier capita for reconstruction. The total of all Geiman payments
to tlio allies is forty dollars gold [ier capita.
are relatively small in our physical qualities
and in all qualities which we share with the
higher animals, but that individual differences
are enormous in acquired traits and in the
higher human- qualities.
The emphasis of individual differences has
been of scarcely less importance than the emphasis on the complexity of each individual in
his response to incentive to action. Every hu
man being responds to an indefinite number
of types of motivation. It is probable that no
human being is enabled to make a maximum
exertion unless he is moved by the simultaneous application of several motives.

Statistics recently compiled show that
British Colnmbia has more telephones to
population than any other province of
Canada. It is to maintain this enviable
record that extensions of outside'plant
and central office equipment are constantly being made, and this year large
expenditures are planned. Facilities for
adequate telephoning are always kept up
to top notch, with the result that our
whole system is in excellent condition,
and we are in a position at all times to
supply service when the request is made.

IN memory of the war-time efforts for King and Country, of eleven thousand O.P.B. employees and more par-
tleularlv of 1,115 men who gavo their lives for tho cause for whicb the British people stood, tiie Canadian
Pacific Railway bas erected at Montreal, Winnipeg, and Vancouver a striking bronze memorial group, depicting
in larger titan life size on Angel of Victory bearing the body of a Canadian soldier upward towards perfect peace.
Tb«M statues were simultaneously unveiled on Friday. April 28th, His Ercelloncy Lord Byng, the Governor General, officiating at tiie Montreal celebration.
At tiie same time was unveiled the bronze tablet illustrated above. Exact duplicates of this tablet wer*
also unveiled at all important points on the C. P. B. system between tiie Atlantic and the Pacific, as well as
at Its American, European and As-otic offices. The tablets arc about five feet in width, and were designed by
Archibald Pearce, of the C. P. B. Chief Engineer's Department, Montreal. The vessel on the left represents
H. M. S. "Lion/' Admiral Beatty's Flagship at tho battle of Jutland, and that on the right the Canadian Pacific Steamship "Empress of Russia," which \vas ongaged through tho war as a fast cruiser, and later as a transport. Beside her stands a standard C. P . R. locomotive and train as having just brought im battalions ready to
embark for overseas service. The soldiers in tho contre represents all arms of the service. The base of the
statues bear the same legend as do tho tablets.
Enlistments of C.P.R. employees totalled 11,340 mon, of which 1,115 wero killed or died of wounds, and
8,106 were wounded. A total of 7,573 were To-employed by the company on their return to Canada, following
ont the O.P.B. policy of re-instating every man who left, in as good a job as that which he had when he went
away, and a total of 13,112 other returned soldiers have also been taken on the company's service. War decorations and medals won by C.P.R. employees totalled 370, and include the following:—

least 37,000 square miles of peat
bogs, with deposits from five to ten
feet deep, and it is estimated that
each square mile contains on an
average tho equivalent of 430,000
tons of coal. The Council for Scientific and Industrial Research at Ottawa after considering tho problem
of making Canada's fuel consumption less dependent upon the Unilod
States, induced the Dominion and
Ontario Governments to appoint
jointly a peat commission, which
carried on extensive experimental
development   work   at   the   Alfi.d
fieat bog, on thc Montreal-Ottawa
ine of the C.P.R. The product was
sold at irofitable prices in competition with real, and it is expected
that a flourishing peat industry will
eventually be founded.
Winnipeg.—Western Canada recently welcomed the first contingent
of its 1922 army of settlers from
Europe and the United States whan
860 persons—men, women and children—arrived at the Canadian Pacific and Union depots. Immigration officials state that the influx
for the season definitely is "on."
All these settlers will go on the
land in Manitoba and the western
provinces. The new arrivals, for
the most part, are family parties
with effects or money, or both, and
their intention is to farm on the
prairies and not to migrate to the
cities.    *
Manitoba's share of these settlers
was a farmer group of 111 persons
who expect to locate on farms, family groups composed this party almost entirely. Additional parties
iwere bound for Saskatchewan. Alberta and British Columbia.
A party of 60 immigrants arrived from Roscoe, Minnesota and
was accompanied by 9 cars of effects. All are bound for the western provinces. Hazel Dell, Saskatchewan, was the destination of Oof
the cars, one went to Melrose, Saskatchewan, one to Clyde, Alberta,
and one to Cudworth, Saskatchewan.
Passengers from the steamship

Vancouver.—After waging warfare ever since the wharfs were first
erected, Canadian Pacific officials-
are of the opinion that they have at
last exterminated the thousands of
rats that used to infest the neighborhood, causing thousands of dollars damage to freight.
About six months ap.o the company brought all its artillery to bear
fn the shape of a spccia'.ly-pro-nred
poison, which was liberally pip. ed in
every runway that could bp detected,
care being taken to see that dogs
could not reach it. Not satisfied
■with this, a wonderful rat trap, of
a pattern that has done great service for the company at other places,
was purchased at an expense of
$15. The trap was placed in tha
place formerly most largely frequented by the rodents, the cooperage room. There it remained for a
week or more but -caught no rats.
The trap was found to be working
properly, but investigation showed
that the poison had exterminated
the rats.
Vancouver officials of the company say they will be glad to give
wholesalers and others who are sustaining heavy loss through rat destruction, tha benefit of the methods
