Directors Are Empowered
to Contract for Supplies—Method of Marketing Still Uncertain
A largely attended meeting of tbe
Qrand Forks Cooperative Growers
Exchange was held in tbe Empress
theater on Wednesday nigbt, with
President Woodland in tbe chair.
Tbe purpose of the meeting was to
arrive at Bome tangible conclusion
io reference to tbe packing and mar
keting of the current year's fruit
orop, and to devise means of raising
fundi? for the purchase of the neoesx
sary supplies.
Tbe subjects,were thoroughly discussed, and the growers finally
decided to sign an agreement to
have their fruit packed tbrough tbe
packing house, and also to sign a
financial undertaking authorizing
the directors to contract for boxes
and other needed supplies.
No agreement was arrived at as to
tbe marketing of tbe crop, and is
matters now stand tbe ranchers can
either market tbeir fruit individually
jt as many of tbem as may be of
the same frame of mind can corns

No local manager of the packing

Northwest Apple
Crop to Be Lighter
The total apple crop oi the Pacific
Northwest is estimated at 31,802,000
boxes, or 8,327,000 boxes lees than
lust year and 2,722,000 boxes more
than tbe crop two years ago.
"The commercial apple crop esti«
mate, soon to be announced by tbe
government, will no deubt show tbe
aame ratio.. The decrease in the west
IB more tban offset by the heavy
increase in production in the eastern barreled apple sections. These
conditions were to be expected, bb
last year tbe boxed apple districts
of the northwest had a heavy crop,
while the eastern yield was light.
Fruit crop conditions throughout
the weat are unto the standard of
the season and approximately 158,

persistent and most aggressive. The
weevils emerge as adults in the sum*
mer and deposit their eggs usually
near the crowns of the plants or
drop theih indiscriminately on loose
soil any time from the middle of
July to tbe first week in September.
On hatching, the larvae work tbeir
way down to the roots, lie dormant
during the winter months, and start
tbeir depredations with tbe spring.
During May the adults commence
to appear. They do not confine tbeir
attention to the strawberries, but

Two main lines of control have
been revealed. These are cultural
methods (which include the plough.,
ing of infested fields at the proper
time of year and'the rotation of
crops) and the use of weevil-proof
barriers. Both methods are fully described in tbe pamphlet. The rotation suggested for new land is: First
year, strawberries; second year, first
crop berries; third year, second crop

fourth year, fall wheat with clover;

Strawberry Pests
and Their Control
Tbe small fruit industry has made
notable growth io British Columbia
during recent years. An example of
this is furnished by the aoreage uuder strawberries, wbicb quadrupled
in tbree yeara Tbis rapid develop-
ment has, however, been accompanied by an equally rapid extension of insect injury, the strawberry
root weevil .laving in some districts
assumed serious proportions.
As far back ae 1918 ao arrangement was arrived at by tbe Dominion department of agriculture witb
tbe provincial government for the
use of six acres of land io tbe center
of tbe strawberry growing distribt of
Gordon Head, Vancouver .island,
witb a view to demooetrating systems of crop rotation suitable to
strawberry culture and to elucidate
if possible tbe problem of weevil
control. Tbe results of tbe expert
mentfl and investigation tbat. have
been carried on are told in pamph

Prairie Crop Prospects
Reports from prairie points indicate that crop prospects are good.
Very little hail damage bas been reported so far. Moisture is reported
plentiful in tbe majority of districts,
rhe grasshopper pest is only reported from a few poiots. ' There is an
optimistic feeliog prevailing among
the farmers. In some districts warm
weather has caused the graio to
head out early with short straw.
Forage crops are uniformly good in
each province. Live stock is generally doing well with excellent pasture. From present indications an
early harvest is predicted in Manitoba. In the country north of Edmonton crops are looking well, but
can do witb a little more moisture.
Tbis condition is general throughout
the provinces. t
A report from Peoticton says that
it is expected tbat A. E. Griffin &
Co. will bave finished their contract
for the construction of the grade for
the Kettle Valley railway branch tc
Oliver by July 15. The work rex
oently has proceeded rapidly and at
the present time all that remains is
the completion of ooe or two of the
smaller bridges and some easy grad
ing at Oliver. The big rockcut south
of Okanagan Falls has been made
and the big bridge at the outlet of
Vasseaux lake is finished.
It is 'also reported that tbe car
barge which has been under construction at the north end of Skaba
lake ia practically completed, and
it will be used to convey rails aod
other materials to Okanagan Falls
when the steel commences.
Kettle Valley railway officials report that jhe line will be completed
by about August 15, in plenty of

by everyone wbo beard him.
Urge Growers to
Use Care in Packing
The fruit branch of the Dominion
department of agriculture strongly
urges strawberry growers to give
more attention to tbe picking, packing and shippiog of their fruit. It
pays, tbe laBt circular says, to put
enough berries io each box to assure
that when tbey arrive on the mar ■
ket tbey will not have settled lower
than tbe top of tbe box. It adde:
"Tbe imports into Canada of United
States strawberries this year bave
more tbao doubled those for a number of years past and the fruit-4
clean, well colored aod Id well-filled
boxes—brought good prices throughout jtbe season. Consumers are
therefore appareotly prepared to pay
a fair price for good well-colored
berries which have beeo properly
picked and packed in boxes wbicb

They are rgaio, however, demonstrating their unwillingness to buy

It seems almost a pity that the members of
the growers' exchange should not be able to
arrive at some degree of unanimity as to the
appointment of a local man as manager of the
exchange to handle the current year's fruit
crop.    The season is now well advanced, and
quick action will soon be necessary in order
to ensui-e a proper pack of the fruit—and if it
is not properly packed it can not be marketed
to the bo«t advantage.    While this paper has
no desire to offer what might be unwelcome
advice (we believe too much advice of this nature is being tendered the growers by people
not actively engaged in the industry),it can not
help but point out that tho largest crop grown
in the valley was packed and marketed under
the supervision of a local man very advantageously to the growers.   The same man, we
understand, can be secured to take charge   of
the work this year.    We hold  no brief for
Mr. Rooke, but we believe that he thoroughly
understands the fruit industry,  that he   is
impartial and honest.    These are essential
qualities, and  they are  not always obtained
when strangers are brought in from the out -
danger is then over until the hot days of late
summer cause the vegetation to dry out, when
a danger period ensues which lasts till the
first autumn rains. The moral of it all is that
Canadians ought always to be careful with fire
in the fiorest and doubly careful during these
danger periods.
All Canadians have heard of the medicine,
cascara,but all do not known that this is obtained from the bark of the cascara tree, which is
found growing on the Pacific coast of this
continent. Owing to the heavy drain on the
stands of this tree in the Pacific states.British
is now one of the sources of supply, and carloads of the bark are now shipped out every
season. In order that all citizens of the province who have to do with work tn the woods
may recognize this tree and know how best
to conserve it, an illustrated pamphlet, written by Professor John Davidson of the University of British Columbia, has been issued
by the forestry branch of the department of
interior. It is known as Circular No. 13, T"*ie
Cascara Tree in British Colnmbia. It has been
widely circulated in British Columbia, but any
persons desiring the pamphlet, who have not
yet received a copy, may obtain one free on
application to the director of forestry, Ottawa.

The latest news from the former kaiser in
Holland is, first, that he has become affected
with a kind of religious mania, and, second,
that he has virtually finished his memoirs.
Admiral von Tirpitz makes the first statements, the London Chronicle the second It
is reported that William demands one million

that he is likely to get it. In the opinion of
booksellers the foreign rights will be much
more valuable than the German rights.
Sir Almroth Wright, the English surgeon,
says that tears ure by no means so "idle" as
the poet imagined them to be. They are quite
actively hostile to most bacteria. A single tear
drop will clear a.test tube full of liquid cloudy
with millions of microbes. Sir Almroth calls
the bactericidal principle in tears "lysozyme."
He has not yet isolated it, but he says it exists in other secietions and tissues ofthe body
and in certain vegetables—for example, the
turnip, but not as anyone-might suppose, the
South Afriea is considering whether to
adopt a decimal system of coinage patterned
after the system in use in Canada and the
Tnited States. The convenience of dollars
and cents can not be denied.
The theater is indeed a factor in education,
development and progress when it puts on such
a play as "Abraham Lincoln" by John Drink-
water. All history is but a series of Irogra-
phies; men have lived and left their names for
good and evil; the evil they did lives after
them, the good is too oft interred with their
bones. It was not so with Lincoln; the great
American natio: is largely his monument. No
storied urn nor animated bust can so eloquently remind us of the greatuess of his character
as the bare facts of his life, simple in its beginning, becoming grand and dramatic by accumulating incident moving to a tragic close.
Shakespeare commenced his dramatic work,
it is believed, by writing of Sir Thomas More
who, like Lincoln, was a martyr and a sacrifice. John Drinkwater, it is no flutter to say,
inspired by a similar grand theme has written
in the true Shakespeatean spirit, doing no
violence to historical accuracy, but presenting
a picture of lofty principle and patriotism
truly inspiring. Itis pleasant to reflect that
this fine play is an English tribute to American nobility, the nobility of character of which
a democracy can be proud. Played on British
and American soil "Abraham Lincoln" will do
valuable work in cultivating those ideals the
two nations hold in common and which are
the links which bind them together.—Vancouver Sun.
There are usually two periods of fire hazard
in the Canadian forests, in early spring just
after tho snow disappears and in late summor
when the vegetation has begun to get dry.
Exceptional seasons vary these periods, but
the two classes of "spring fires" and "summer
fires" remain. Many people understand why
the dry, hot period of late summer is likely to
be favorable to the starting of forest fires, but
they think that after the heavy snowfall of
winter the woods ought to be safe till early
summer at least. A little reflection, however,
, will show why the early spring period is par-
ticlar dajgeious. In early spring there is often
a short period of hot, bright days. The leaves
have-not yet come out and the sun shines
down through the leafless branches directly on
on the forest floor. The snow disappears as if
by magic and the dead twigs and last year's
leaves become dry as tirtder. If a glowing
mateh or cigarette stub is dropped among this
material the forest floor is ablaze over a space
of many yards in a moment. A few days at
this period are always most critical. After the
first spring rain the ground vegetation becomes green and damp, and the leaves come
out and shade the forest floor.    The worst
