securing a fair share of tbis new

water and air in tbe soil, not at in
tervals during tbe growing season
but for the entire year. A corabina
tion was proposed of two methods
to accomplish this—better physical
condition of the soil and earlier and
later irrigation. For the last few
years more culls have been traceable
to soil moisture troubles tban to any
otber cause, and many of our
o.charns, from tbis cause, are not
giving the possible box-per-tree
yield. To enable us to compete in
orcharding witb our neighbors to
tbe south we must at least approxi
mate their yield per tree or per acre,
because on our average fa m our
overhead expenses will be higher
than theirs iti proportion to their
topographical or other advantages
So we must make sure that our soil
moisture is as good as or better than
tbeirs.
There must be a supply of moist
ure in the soil to start growth, and
there must also be a supply of fiber
and root hairs iu perfect condition
to :arry moisture and plant food to
tbe tree. If these bave been impaired, as they often are, tbe tree
can not function 100 per cent strong.
In all investigational work it is
found that such troubles as drought
spot, and wbat many call small leaf,
are traceable toa very dry root system, many fiber roots being dead.
Under tbese conditions what chance
have the still finer hair roots) The
dryer the soil tbe more damage is
found. A soil tbat bas a good moisture holding capacity, whither natural or built up, does not show
tbese troubles, and if the root system is examined it will be found
tbat all roots are functioning in a
healthy condition
One often hears tbat certain
orchards are irrigated only ouco or
twice during the season. Let us
consider this. Under sucb conditions it is necessary to put from 12
to 18 inches of water into the soil at
each irrigation, and this cnn not be
done while at the same time maintaining proper growing conditions;
for it must be apparent to all tbat
tho proper balance is upset, and
when it is considered tbat tbe evaporation may be aB high us 22 inches
In four motnhs (May, June, July
and August) from u water surface,
aud -oil evaporation and transpiration may run higher, this again
shows tbat it can not be done. The
sooner our growers realize this tbe
better their returns will be per acre.
Tbe time to irrigate is wben moisture is Deeded.
Moisture is needed twelve mouths
in the year.
It is, of course, needed most io
the growing season, as two forces
are then at work, evaporation and
tarnspiratiou, both influenced largely by beat and wind.
See, therefore, tbat the soil is
moist enough to maintain tbe roots
during the winter and start growth

A Story for Golfers
Lord Riddell, one of the British
delegates to the Washington conference who made many American
friends while in theStates, speaking
at a recent luncheon at the Criccieth
Golf club, told this story:
The greatest hero iu golf history
was a Scotsman who in the year
1710 used to start playing at dawn
and end by putting at the last green
by candlelight. Matters reached
such a stage that his wife, who was
an innkeeper, applied for a separation order on tbe ground that ber
busband so negleeted his business
tbat he did not properly support
her,
The circumstance enablec the
man to make one of tbe most pathetic declarations in history. "Let
ber bave tbe business1" he said,
"provided she gives me sullieient to
clothe and feed myself and provide
myself wilh golf balls."
Tbe magistrates must bave
thought it a proper disposition of
the family property, for they decreed accordingly, and tbe gentles
man lived to be ninety-five years
old and continued his golf playing
to the end!

Mrs. R. Gray and two sous and
Mrs. Ed Richter,.all of Kettle Valley,   were   recent   visitors   in   the

Mayor Hull and all the aldermen
were present at the regular meeting
of the city council on Monday evening.
A deputation fjom the I.O.O.F.
and the K of P. lodges waited on
the council in reference to continu
ing tbe work started last summer at
the cemeteries. The two lodges
agreed to pay $50 each towards the
cost of tbe work. The cemetery committee met witb them and opened
the applications for a cemetery
caretaker. They recommended to
the council the appointment of J.
W. Pyrah for five months at a salary
of $85 per month, his services to
commence May 1 The counoil made
the appointment as recommended,
it being understood that the caretaker's duties is to include tbe digging of graves. Each of the lodges
will name a representative wbo,
with the cemetery committee, will
direct tbe work to be done in the
cemetery.
Forbes M. Kerby submitted plans
and profiles for routes of tho proposed drain from the slough at the
skating rink to the river. The matter was taken undsr consideration
by tbe council.
Prices for local concrete pipe were
also received.

How and When
to Destroy Weeds
The best time to destroy weeds ia
within two or three days after the
firs' pair of leaves has formed on the
seedling plant, says the Dominion
seed commissioner in his bulletin
on "Weeds and Weed Seeds." In
friable soils tbe "weeder" is a useful
implement for that purpose. I'he
"tilling" harrow is also satisfactory
for comparatively oose soils and is
preferred as a weed destroyer on
firm or clayey land. Weeds are irregular in time of germiuation; con-
seqnently it is necessary to apply
the weeder or harrow frequently
throughout the growing season. Potatoes, or fields of corn or cereal
grains when sown wit.; a drill, may
advantageously be cultivated witb
such implements once or twice before the crop distinctly shows above
the ground, and again, with corn
and ordinary grain crops, when tbe
plants are tbree to six inches bigb.
Even relatively heavy harrows ordinarily in use will do little d: .iage
to tbe potatoes, corn o,r A,ain plants
if the land is nol wet, wbile tbe
loosening of the surface soil benefits
the crop in addition to tbe destruction of tbe weeds.
For perennial weeds or seedlings
that have become well rooted, a
cultivator having diamond-shaped
or other relatively broad shares is
needed for hoed crops. Thu disc is
a favored implement for destroying
weeds in a summer fallow or in preparing seed bed. When, however, it
iB jdesired to unearth and remove
the rootstocks of pereunial weefis,
su h as couch grass, a narrow-
toothed cultivator tbat will loosen
the soil and bring the underground
vegetation to tbe surface, is preferred to an implement tbat will cut
the rootstocks, the small cuttings of
which may be exceedingly persist
ent of growth.
The following statement was issued last week by the Growers'
committee at Vernon:
Growers in British Columbia have
signed up to the Associated Growers
of British Columbia over 80 per
cent of the total fruit tonnage of the
territory in which the association
will operate. The aim must be to
obtain selling control over as nearly
100 per cent of tbe fruit and vegetable production as may practically
be posstble. The camgaign for memn
bership in tbe association must not
be regarded as closed It never will
will be closed. It is moBt necessary
to obtain the support now of every
grower who has not yet signed up to
tbe association, and campaign committees are urged not only not to
relax their (-Sorts, but to use increased efforts to obtain the cooperation oi every growi still outside the association.
The reasons for tbis are apparent
to all and nee.l not bo elaborated on
here. Campaign committees should,
at once,overbuul their arrangements
for getting recruits and see where
improvement is possible. These arrangements muat be 100 per cent
efficient, and keep working light
along.
On March 29 the executive of the
organization committti: had an interview witb Premier Oliver and
several matters pertaining to the interests of the Associated Growers
were discussed. Tbe premier assured
the executive of tbe deep interest
taken by tbe government in the success of the fruit growing business
and its recognition of tbe importance of tbis industry to the welfare
of the province.
Organizniioa is being proceeded
-'. as rapidly as possible, including the completion of thn arrange
ments for taking over independent
packing bouses and the organiz tion
of new and old locals. Financial
matters are receiving close attention
Now that the 80 per cont neces.
sary fruit tonnage control has bean
obtained the details of organiz ition
will be pushed to completion as
quickly as possible.

FRIDAY, APRIL 18, 1923
Local fruit growers are a unit in favor of
a province-wide seasonal pool foreach variety
of fruit.   This seems to be the  only method
by which  true ooooperation can  be oarrie d
out, and there is no apparent reason why an y
district  should  object  to its adoption by the
Associated Growers of British Columbia.   By
marketing liy district  pools there would be
great danger of a  late variety from  one district coining into competition with  an  earlier
variety from some other district.    This would
work out disadvantageous^ to  the  late  districts.   On  the other hand, the late districts
would have the advantage in  marketing the
winter varieties, for it is well known that the
apples grown in these districts are  of better
keeping quality   than   those   grown   in the
early-ripening districts.    But we do  not believe that either Mr. .Sapiro or Mr. Oliver had
in mind the district pool, because both of them
made it quite clear from the  public  platform
that the  California growers  c joperated   by
commodity  and  not  by  district.    With the
adoption of the provincial  pool  for varieties
we believe the Associated Growers of British
Columbia can   be  made nearly 100 per cent
strong, because all tliose growers  who  have
signed the agree with a reservation want this
kind of cooperation. This is the  strongest argument in its favor.

Experiments at McCook Field, near Dayton, Ohio, dispersed clouds and precipitated
the moisture that they contained by scattering elecirically charged sand above them.
The object was not to make rain, but to clear
the air of mist above the fly ng field. Usually
the moisture evaporated before it reached the
earth, but the rapidity with which the clouds
disappeared when the sand struck them was
astonishing.
The Peanut Growers' association plans to

a special from the paper's London corrospon
dent in which high tribute is paid to British -,
ers for their stand in regard to the peyment
of the debt to the United .States. The debt,
he says, "is a more staggering burden than
any Englishmen will admit," and gives some
rather specular statistics to show just what it
means to tho old country. He says: "It is

There are few advantages in modern business to be
compared in practical value with the service your own
office telephone is prepared at any moment of the day
or night to supply you with.
At a minimum outlay in minutes you can get in
direct touch with your desired party possibly hundreds
of miles away where postal or other delay would be a
decided drawback. Correspondence cannot compete
with the speed of telephone service, besides which consider carefully the undoubted advantage of a personal
talk.

WHAT la one of the finest big
game and fishing sections of
North America and one of tlu- lust
great stands tor big game, lies within easy reach of the Canadian Pacific
Railway in the Cariboo district of
British Columbia. Here, as nowhere
else on the continent, are found in
abundance the bear, gi-Uzley, brown
and black; the moose and caribou,
and the wary mountain goat and
sheep. The cougar ls often seen and
heard and the smaller fur hearing
animals make a trappers paradise of
this vast rlrgln territory. As will
be seen from the picture above, the
fishing is superlatively good; it is
the fishing country of the west.
"Who ls the man with soul so dead
and bent on Irksome chores, who
hath not sometime to him said, 'I'll
seek the Great Outdoors' ?" Eaoh
year an lnorea-Ung number of hunters and fishermen are absorbed by
the district, but so vast and extensive
1* lt, that there are yet parts of lt
that have never been visited by the
hunter, and streams that have never
had a line thrown-over-them. To
reach the Cariboo district one usually
staves the railway at Ashcroft from
which place, arrangements having
previously been made, one starts out
by automobile over the famous Carl-
boo road to Quesnel l^ake, Harpers
Camp, Horsefly Lake or one other
of tie numerous camping sites. The
road, which winds among the foothills for hundreds of miles, climbs
to an elevation of G.UOO feet and
drops gradually to below the 2,300
foot level by the lakes, was made
famous by the horde of gold seekers
who passed over lt In the days of '49.
The old road houses built ln those
days are still there, and while many
of them are used as headquarters
for the large ranches in the district
they afford simple but comfortable
accommodation on the trip.
From the camps one can just
paddle along the still, black, green
bordered streams and lakes over
which the snow capped ranges tower
or one can sit at ease by the camp
fire and watoh the sun sink behind
the hills set ablaze with Its glory,
listening the while to the soft rustic
of the wind ln the tree tops ami the
gentle plashing of the water on the
crags. If one ls of a more agressive
nature one can, aocompanletl  by  a
careful and well tried guide, strike
through the wilderness ln search of
its natural denizens, or, armed with
rod, fly and other bait, angle to the
hearts content. One may spend
weeks, making short trips hy boat,
canoe, or saddle horse, fishing ln the
lakes and streams near hy, and
getting back to camp eaoh night, or
travel with the necessaries for bivouac and commune with the wilds
for days or weeks at a time.
The Cariboo hunting and fishing
grounds, are located in the Qreat
Interior Plateau, lying between the
Rockies and the Cascades, east
of the Fraser River. Ashcroft, the
Jumping off place, Is on the main
line of the Canadian Pacific 203
miles east of Vancouver. Equipment
for trips can be purchased there or
at one of the various hunting centres
ln the district close by. Guide and
Outfitting companies cater to every
necessity and the "Cariboo" and
other lodges adequately care for the
wants of the business or professional
man who does not care for an extended hunting or fishing trip but'
desires to get away from something
or everything for a while.

Fire insurance companies fotrad
1922 the most disastrous year for
more than 20. The rsiio ef losses
to premiums was 88.64 per cant,
British companies suffered mott severely, their losses te premiums being 71.48 per cent, mainly due te
the Northern Ontario fire.
A gold rush is ln full swing and
it is expected to bring about the development of more mining camps In
the counties ef Tomiskaming and
Abitibi. Gold was discovered in
these two counties early in 1921,
and a rush of prospectors began 1"
March of that year. In October,
250 claims were staked, comprising
60,000 acres of land, and te date
about 90,000 acres have been staked.
In ths last fiscal year, Canada
imported 1,363,000 pound- ef butter
from the United States, 897,000
pounds from Australia and 1254,000
pounds from New 7ii*alsnn The
total exports of Canadian butter
were 8,430,000 pounds.
It is announced that the running
schedule of the Trans-Canada Limited, which will operate between
Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver,
commencing May 20th, has been cut
down one hour. Considering the all
steel equipment and luxurious appointments and its regular dally on
time performance, this is the finest
long distance train in the world.
Bungalow camps, sueh as are
operated in the Canadian .Rockies,
are to be built in the French River,
Nipigon Bay and Lake of the Woods
districts of Ontario by the Canadian
Pacific Railway. Low cost of construction and maintenance will enable the company to offer lower
rates than standard hotels. The first
three will be ready for occupation
by July 1st.
According to a recent rearrangement of ports of call j the Orient,
the Canadian Pacific Steamships
Limited, by omitting Manila as a
port of call between Shanghai and
Hong Kong;, will bring the latter
port four days nearer to Canada, the
United Stales and Europe. This
makes possible a through service
from London, England, via Canadian Pacific Atlantic "impresses to
Quebec and rail to Vancouver and
via Canadian Pacific Empresses to
Hong Kong  under 28 days.
During the year 1922 the Canadian Pacific Railway handled a
total of 8,435,825 pieces of baggage
as compared with 8,732,674 for the
previous year. Of this amount
6,175,203 pieces were passengers'
baggage whicli compared with 5,-
48(1.455 for the previous twelve
months. 9.G1I7 bicycles were handled,
111,336 dogs travelled as baggage
and 23,1)88 baby carriatres were
moved. There was also a considerable
increase in the movement of milk.
In 1922, the Company moved 1,628,-
707 cans as against 1,614,791 in
1921; and it is remarkable that most
of this increase was in the three
provinces, Manitoba, Saskatchewan
and Alberta, which 's an apparent
indication of the further development of mixed farming in those
provinces. ,
One of the best examples of a
town "growing up n*er night" is
that of Climax, the end of steel on
the Consul-Assinlboia branch of ths
Canadian Pacific Railway. All that
there was on the quarter section on
February 19th, the dav mn whh h Ihe
site of the new town was finally
settled, was :t homesteader'** ■ ick

was laid in Climax on March 15th
there was a restaurant, one roornrm*;
house, over a score of dwellings, twe
blacksmith's shops, a dru*r store,
gents' furnishing store, a big general store, pool room and barber
shop. The new town is situated In

HORSESHOES

HAIRSPRINGS ?
Five dollars worth of iron made into
horseshoes ,had a market value of ten
dollars. Converted into needles that
five dollars worth of iron becomes
worth six thousand eight hundred dollars, but when made into hairsprings
for watches it is worth two million
dollars.
We may all be compared with that
original five doll'trs w.irth of irtm--
tvliiit wii make of ourselves—how
valuable we become—depends upon
ourselves.
Most of us are content to be in the
horseshoe class. A few reach the rank
of needles, but how rare is thc man
who can be clashed as a hairspring—
the man who makes thc most of every
talent he was bora with—who not
merely takes advantage of every opportunity but, Napoleon like, creates
opportunities.

One step won't take very far,

One inch won't make you very tall,

One little ad. won't do it all,
You've got to keep them going.

The Objects of this Institution, for which Incorporation was recently ob
tained, are: "To provide a Sotng and llofugo for Baby and Infant Blind; to
provide free Scientific C*re, Training and Maintenance; to Save the Lives of
even a few of the many of such unfortunates, who, for the lack of such service, perish every year; and to return these little ones to their paronts, at
sohool age with normal, healthy bodies and sound minds."
This is a large and gt-datly needed Child Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at the Government offices in the verious provinoes reveals the fact that there
are at the presant time nearly 2.50 Infant Blind in the Dominion. Nothing
has yet been done for those helpless little ones. In the United States, 16
years ago, the flrst home was opened in New York City; they have now homes
in 13 States, all doing excellent work. In England, aoine time ago, Sir Ar
}hur Pearson organized "Sunshine House," Chorley Wood, for Blind Babies,
and he claims that it is the only one iu the British Empire. Let us have the
SECOND in Canada. To reach this worthy end money is urgently required.
Fifty Thousand Dollars is the present objective of the Botud. Whilo the
Home is to bi i-vrited in Ottawa it will take in the Baby Bliud from evory
province, so that this APPEAL for funds will be Dominion wide, and an
early and generous response is confidently expected. Cheques should be made
payable to the Canadian Blind Babies Homo Association. All remittances
will be promptly acknowledged
