by Dan Matheson, local

This announcement is taken
to mean that the company's

commence opertions, and
should take up all the idle

The news has caused the
people of the community to
take a more optimistic view

On tbe re .ommendation of tbe
minister of agriculture, and under
tbe provisions of tbe agricultural
act 1915, amendment act 1920,
clause 83, tbe lieutentant-governor,
by and with tbe advice ol his executive cauncil, bas given his consent
to the following order in council:
Tbat for tbe further prevention,
treatment, cure and extirpation of
fruit pests and tbe diseases ol fruit
and fruit trees, it is advisable tbat
an additional clause, as specified herewith, be inserted in tbe
regulations of tbe board or horticulture, approved by order in council
No. 328, dated March 8, 1919.
Tbat tbe following ^clause, to be
numbered 6(11) be inserted in tbat
section of the said regulations dealing with the ontrol of pests within
the province, viz:
"Upon receipt in writing by tbe
board of a request signed by 80 per
cent of tbe growers io any district
the board may constitute a protection zone witb the object of under*
taking tbe control or prevention jf
any fruit pest. Upon such zone being established, all directions given
or issued by the inspector having
charge within euch zone shall be
carried out by tbe growers operating
within tbe zone, and any grower
failing to carry out the directions of
tbe inspector shall be liable to tbe
penalties provided for by the act."
Vancouver, June 7.—Lieut. Col.
J. S. Dennis, head of tbe natural
resources department of the C P.R,
is journeying along the line of the
Pacific Great Eastern railway, investigating tbe traffic development pos
sibilities of tbe government railway.
He will, like Jqbn G. Sullivan, Ihe
construction expert, report upon lbe
situation that he finds in tbis respect.
Tbe report of Mr. Sullivan is believed to be about completed, if not
already in tbe bands of the premier.
He was assigned to investigate tbe
condition of tbe railway from lbe
construction and engineering stand
Col. Dennis, as an expert on the
traffic producing value of natural
resources, will study, the potential
agricultural, mineral aDd industrial
development along tbe line of the
railway and make a report oovering
that phase of the enterprise.
Both investigators are on tbe job

the premier to a group of beavy tax*

Tbe soil best adapted to the growing of walnuts is a good loam witb
plenty of humus of good depth and
well drained. Tbe best method of
propagation is by using nursery
grafted trees on a known rootstock,
that of any variety of the black walnut, Juglans hindsii being probably
tbe best of all.
Io planting use stocky trees of
from six to ten fee.t in height, of
good diameter and vigoious, bealthy
root system. Sucb treeB can be obtained from any relie I)le nurseryman
at $1 to 11.50 apiece. Plant your
trees in rows sixty feet apart and
thirty feet apart in the rows'and
when they begin to crowd remove
altereate tree in tbe rows.
Head back your trees to five or
six feet at time of planting. Good
cultivation is necessary and cover
crops of some leguminous variety
may be used. intercropping during
tbe earlier years of tbe orcbatd may
be praoticod,
A small amouot of pruning only
is necessary, merely trimming off
the lower branches, which interfere
witb cultivation.
A walnut tree, will come into
profitable bearing at about Beven
years from tbe time of planting and
a mature orchard sbould yield nine
hundred to twelve hundred pounds
per acre.
Walnut trees suffer little from the
ravages of disease and insects and
the expense of combatting sucb
pests is small, tbe walnut blight and
tbe walnut aphis being the principal
pests and these can be controlled,
lbe firel-by nicotine dust preparation and the latter by black leaf  40.
Walnuts wben mature will fall to
the ground and tbeir outer busks
will break open aDd this is used aB
the method of harvesting, for if tbe
uute are gathered on the tree numbers of the nuts so gathered will be
unripe and therefore .only culls.
After gathering the fallen nuts they
must be washed and graded before
sucking aod shippiog to market. An
average price obtainable for walnuts
is from 16 to 18 cents per pound.
Taking 17 cents as an average
price per pound and 1000 pounds as
an average yield per acre and tbe
annual cost of operation $60, cost of
paoking and marketing $16, tbe net
income from one acre of walnuts
woold be $91. The market for wai
nuts is almost unlimited. All nuts
used bere are imported.—W. S.
Moore, Dominion Experimental
Farm, Agassiz, B. C.
Progressives and Conservatives MayVoteAgainst
Budget—Neither Party
in House Desires to Appeal to the People
An Ottawa dispatch of the
6th says that the fate of the
Fielding budget and incidentally the fate of the government, hangs in doubt.
Tuesday's debate in the commons, coupled with former
discussions, leads to an impasse to which neither of the
parties in the commons may
conceivably emerge without
another general election.
There has been a considerable amount of jockeying as
to the amendment or amendments which should be offered to the budget of Hon. W.
S. Fielding.
Two were offered—one by
Sir Henry Drayton calling
down censure upon the administration because it had
not implemented its tariff
pledges of the 1919sessioo, another
ity Hon. T. A. Crerar, condemning
the government for tbe fact tbat the
principal of protection had not been
declared anathema and because pro-
tion characterized the entire budgt-t
proposals of tbe new minister.
The latter amendment was do
clared out of order by Mr. Speaker
Lemieux. Progressive members
promptly challenged the ruling,-and
Liberals and Conservatives combined
to uphold the ruling.
Value of Cheese
As a Food
Do you remember all tbe unkind
things you said about tbe invigorating weather laat winter?
Some Useful
Nut Crops
The cultivation of nuts as a commercial undertaking has lately been
arousing much interest and it would
be advisable to enquire into the possibilities of making a success in tbat
line. Though tbere is a fair amouot
of profit in the growing of some varieties of nuts, one must not be led
to believe there is any very great
profit to be derived from tbe Bame;
a fair return for one's work and
money expended is all one can hope
Walnuts appear to be the most
profitable of all tbe nuts, tbougb
there is considerable outlay in the
foundation of a wafnut orchard, aod
one would bave to bave the patience
to wait some six or seven years be
fore gettipg returns of any extent.
The walnut moat favored for  this
A companion pamphlet to Miss
Helen G. Campbell's "Why and
How to Use Milk" bas been published by tbe Dominion department
of agriculture, Ottawa. This pamphlet is entitled "Why and Ho i to
Use Cheese." Besides giving a history of cheese making of the different kinds of cheese—of which it will
surprise most people to bear there
are some 250—upwards of three
dozeo methods are described io
wbicb cheese can be used to make
savory aod nutritious dishes.
All cheese making in Canada was
carried on as a farm industry until
1864, when tbe fust factory came
into existence in Oxford county,
Ontario. In tbe following year a
factory was established in Missisquoi
county, Quebec. Tbe progress of
factory establishment was so rapid
that in a few years the system was
generally adopted, and farm made
cheese became a rarity. Wbile every
one of the provinces has its cheese
factories, about 97 per cent of the
production has to be credited to On
tario aod   Quebec.
might be mentioned that tbe total
viilue of the cheese made in tbis
country runs up to between thirty-
five and forty million dollars per annum, and the quantity totals up to
around a hundred and fifty million
pounds, sometimet over and sometimes under. The variation in production is considerable as will be understood when it is stated tbat io
191-1 it was 169,478,340 pounds
and in 1920 nearly twenty million
pounds lees.
In Canadian factories tbe manufacture of cheese is mostly  confined
to what is  known  as Cheddar, but
genuine Stilton is turned on tbe Dominion experimental farm at  Agassiz, B. C, and tbe Trappist monks
at the Oka Agricultural Institute io
Quebec make what is known as the
Oka cheese. Another form of cheese
made   iu   this   country   is Cottage
cheese,   which   is made in   many
households   from   sour   skim-milk
without the aid of rennet. For cream
cheese   there   is   also a demand of
some   dimension.    Miss   Campbell
dwells upon the advantages of cheese
in the diet, tells bow it can   best  be
kept, and  suggests tbat  Canadians
would be well advised  to eat mor-.
of il tban tbey do.   This suggestion
gains force from   tbe fact  tbat tbe
consumption of cheese in   Britain ie
about four times   per capita more
than it is in this country.

What are the qualificBtions of an expert?
A short time ago a man who is supposed to
be an expert in the marketing of fruit tnld a
Grand Forks audience   of  growers that it
would be a waste of time and money to send
anything but the most fancy grade of apples
to the English market.    Last week the Brit
ish representative   of  two   important fruit
marketing concerns on this continent made
the statement that the people of the   old
country wanted a small apple, and adviced
the producers to dispose of their fancy grades
in the Canadian market.    Both of these gen -
tlemen are supposed to be experts in tho fruit
marketing field, yet their views are as wide
apart as the two poles    Thero a growing sus -
picion that many persons style themselves ex -
perts merely   for the purpose of increasing
their salaries.   If this is correct, the sooner
individuals and industrial concerns get back
to   the old-fashioned method  of employing
ordinary men  with common  horse-sense to
manage their affairs the better it will be for
The announcement that the Rock Candy
mine is to resume operations seems to indicate
that the withdrawal of the Granby company
did noL entirely kill the mining industry in the
Boundary. There are, in fact, many persons
in this community who have abundant faith
in the mineral resources of the district, and
they predict that the industry will "come
back" stronger than ever in the near future.
The Rock Candy is^an important property and
the principal producer of ttuorite in the prov
ince. The report in circulation during the
past week that the Canada Copper Corpora
tion is to resume work has added to the
optimism that at present prevails in local
mining circles.
Dishonest Advertising
To permit dishonest advertising of British
Golumbia's attractions will be to deliver the
greatest possible blow to immigration projects
Bogus schemes founded on misrepresentation J were revealed Monday to the Victoria
chamber of commerce. These are ominous to
any hopes the province may have of filling op
its idle acres with industrious settlers from
Turth in advertising has become an ideal
very close to realization in the business world.
Truth in advertising is even more pronounced
in the old couutry than it is on this continent.
Advertisers have found it to be the most
profitable policy.
Thus in Great Britain people believe what
they read. There is little, if any, discount allowed for the advertiser's flights of imagination.
Under such circumstances, deception hits
doubly hard.
Canada's future must be founded on confidence. Without confidence both the muscles
and the money of the old country will be
turned away from us. And Canada needs both
After measures of suppression have been
taken, the best way of fighting dishonest advertising is by honest advertising.
Tell the people of Brita n freely just what
hardships they may have to endure, just how
hard they will have to work and the priva-
tio; s they may encounter. Tell them frankly
what the reward of productive labor will be.
Utopian tales attract the weaklings. True
stories of difficulties to be surmounted and
honest labor to be done attract the vigorous
spirits who only ask that their reward equal
their service.
And these are the kind of settlers Canada
wants to get.—Vancouver Sun.

JAPAN has a monopoly of the silk
Industry of the Orient. The Japanese have achieved this triumph as
the result of an early appreciation of
tke value of organisation and standardizing, and by reason of their skill
in perfecting a raw silk adaptod to
high power American machines. Silk
is the chief Japanese export
The silk worm therefore is the apodal pet and pride of -the Japanese

health, and happiness. This is no
slight task. At least 4,000 years of
breeding for silk alone has told on his
probably once robust constitution, and
the silk worm ia now a temperamental

epidemics and greatly influenced by
atmospheric changes of an unfriendly

of these pin-holes. He climbs tip tc
enquire what they mean, and working
his way through them finds himself
betrayed into a world of toil and trou
ble, as many a human being has been
and will continue to bo as long ae
bright lights glow.
The only thing he brings with hiii
is a first class appetite, and the mul
berry he loves must be chosen with
tender caro in order to work up his
strength to tho task of producing n
fine strand of silk. For about n
month he devotea his ontiro attention
to meals, which amount to a practically continuous performance, with the
exception of three or four short
periods during whieh he changes his
skin to one that more comfortably
conforms to his fast increasing bulk.
At these times care is taken to keep
him frcm disturbing noises, although
modern writers on the subject do not
state that he is inspired to greater
effort by music served with his meals.
If not, it is perhaps because Oriental
music would more favor distraction
than the contemplative calm, most
conducive to the silk worm's task of
putting on wolght.        ■
Having become a full-grown silk
worm, he sets about the serious business of life, the spinning of the cocoon and eight to twelve hundred continuous yards of silken thread. This
lakes three or four days, and in most
cases, his Hfe shortly afterwards ends
in hot water, as might be expected of
one so early showing a predilection
for bright lights. The hot water enables the silk farmer to easily unwind
the cocoon into a skein of gjos
golden colored, raw silk all ready for
the mills.
A few of his relations are picked
out to carry on the good work, but
even for those life haa few joys. It
is a long sleep of several months, an
emerging from the cocoon as a winged
moth that cannot fly, and the immediate setting about the business of laying another five or six hundred tiny
eggs. When that supremo task is completed the little life goes out, probably tirod of a world in which most of
the fun has to be got out of eating.
But the silk it leaves lives on, and
its first few weeks of life are swift.
Thero are n dozen processes of winding, washing, weaving and coloring
through which it must go, and*, the
loss time that these procosses take,
the bettor.   A train load of silk repre-
esnts a great amount of money. Tke
interest on its value, and tke premiums on its insurance total up tn
mendously. That is why every effort
is made to get the finished product
into the dealers' hands at the eeriest
possible moment.
A record in the trans-shipment ol
silk from Japan to New Tork was ro
cently made by the O.P.B. On April
29, the Canadian Pacific steamer
'"Empress of Russia," left Yokohama
carrying in her cargo 3,000 bales of
silk for New Tork. Two minster
later the "Bay State,"another Paei
fie liner, left a near-by dock witb
1,500 hales of silk bound for tke
same destination. It was a race across
the Pacific Ocean and the American
continent, and silk and skipping men
of two continents watched for the result On arrival at Vancouver Ae
"Empress of Russia" silk was placed
on a special train, which was ordered
to make all possible speedSto New
York. Tho silk was delivered there
at S.20 p.m., Hay 12, while the cargo
of the B.8. "Bay State" was de
livered 7.30 a.m., Hay 15, the Oana
dian Pacific through time from Yokohama to New York having been 62
hours and 1 minute faster than thai
nf the rival line, and a record between these two points was thus established. Despite the fact that it
was a 17 ear train, the time consumed
ictween Vancouver and Prescott, Ontario, was only 3 days, 17 houn, and
57 minutes. Canada's fastest regular
passenger train is the C.P.R. "Trans-
Canada Limited," which runs from
Montreal to Vancouver in 92 hours,
and from Toronto to Vancouver in 88
hours, leaving both cities dally. Tlie
shipping of this silk has definitely
settled the supremacy of the Canadian
route as the quickest to and from the
Orient, and means much to the future
trade of Canada.

Montreal. _ Total acreage prepared for seed in the Prairie Prov-
tooes, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and
Alberta, is reported to be 28.8 per
ctwt. greater than that of last year,
with a total of 16,468,648 acres, according to crop bulletin handed out
by ths Canadian Pacific Agricultural
Agent, who adds that conditions
are, on the whole, very favorable.
Ground conditions are stated to bs
excellent, a large amount of moisture having assured the spring
needs. In some respects conditions
are reported to be the best for many
years past.
As to farm help, no shortage is
anticipated, a large supply being
available from the cities where unemployment has been acute during
the past winter.
St John.—George E. Carter has
been appointed C. P. travelling passenger agent in this district. He has
been in the employ of the C. P. R.
sines 1914. At that time he joined
the ticket office staff and early in
1916 waB granted leave of absence
to proceed overseas. He went over
with reinforcements from McGill
University to join the Princess Pats,
and later was transferred to a machine corps. While with that branch
ot service he obtained a commission
and was slightly wounded during
one of the late advances prior to the
signing of the armistice. On his return he was appointed to the port
staff of the C. P. R. and has since
been engaged with them both at
Quebec and St. John.
Winnipeg. — Staring from Regina the latter part of May,
»s Canadian Pacific Railway Com-
8any, with the co-operation of the
askatchewan Government, will run
a better Bull Special train through
the central and northern parts of the
province. This train will correspond
in many respects to the Livestock
Improvement Special which the
Manitoba Government, Canadian Pacific Railway and Cattle Breeders'
Association operate through Manitoba during the month of May. The
Saskatchewan itinerary is an elaborate one, including visits to at
least fifty-four towns and covering
nearly seven hundred miles of Railway. Many points will be included
which have not heretofore had the
benefit of a visit by a demonstration
train. Ths C. P. R. is assuming all
expenses in supplying, equipping
and operating thc train. An official
of the Company's Agricultural  de-
Sartment  will accompany the  train
uring the tour.
Winnipeg. — The flrst passenger
train in the Dominion of Canada
equipped with a radio apparatus left
Winnipeg Monday morning, May 1,
from ths local yards of the Canadian Pacific Railway, company officials announced recently. The radiograph has been installed in the livestock improvement train which consists of seventeen cars scheduled ta
tour ths province of Manitoba practically ths whole month of May.
The radio machine has been installed by a local commercial concern at the request of the Canadian
Pacific Railway; two Marconi representatives and a mechanic accompany ths train. Demonstrations are
given on ths train each day and it
is clearly indicated that this feature
mssts with keen intsrsst by those
attending the lectures. Arrangements have been completed for the
receiving of concerts and general
world news from Winnipeg.
The livestock improvement train
is equipped snd maintained by the
Canadian Pacific Railway. The project is backed by the Dominion de-
gartment of agriculture, the prov-
tcial department of agriculture, ths
agricultural college, the livestock exchange, the packing companies, thc
cattle breeders associations of Manitoba. While ths lectures are being
carried on for men In one car, classes
ars held for women, boys and girls
in other sections of the train.
Special addresses on birds are given
to ths boys and girls sttsnding. Ths
train ls ons of tks best equipped of

At an example of the way in
which railway crossing accidents frequently occur, an event whioh took
place at an Ontario town last week
was an outstaading example. A lady
driving a horse and buggy, along a
country read approached a level
crosslsg at tha same time as did a
train. It is apparent that ordinary
precautions sucn bb are altogether
necessary when crossing a railway
wore not in this instance observed.
The first part of the train got by
the road without incident, but the
speed at which the lady was driving
prevented her pulling up in time to
1st the train by, with the result that
she drove Into the rear car. The
buggy was overturned, and the lady
sastslned three broken ribs, as well
•s other more or less serious injuries as s result of her carelessness.
IWsnaUly the train crew saw ths
aoddsnt, and stopping the train,
vm able to save her further injuries. The fact remains that ths
lady in this case was fortunats in

Brioni seems, so far as vegetation
