Prevention of Storage Rot
in Onions
The orop should be harvested
wben the leaves bave died down to
about one tbird of their original
height, and tbe buibs are ioose and
seem ready to letve the ground. At
this stage tbe roots will be found to
be dried and dead.
After tbe crop has beeu pulled
aod plaoed in windrows, the grower
may oure his onions directly on the
ground in the fi-Id, or he may top
tbem when the tope are fairly dry;
oure them either in the field or in a
shed nf -special slatted onion crates.
The latter method has the advantages that drier, better cure (.better
colored, and longer keeping onions
will bo obtained.
Onions to be stored should be
mature, bard, well cured, free frnm
injury and diseases, and wilh as
small a percentage of "thick necks"
as possble. This latter never cure
well and have a tendency to break
down in storage. This is also true
of  onions   which   have started to
make a second growth of roots, or
which are succulent owing to too
late an irrigation or considerable
rain in tbe late summer.
One of tbe most common  causes
of serious   loss  in  storage in tbe
Okanagan valley   is the rot due to
fungus,   Botryti   alii, which   is responsible for the disease   of  onions
known as "neck rot."    The  fungus
is most appatent in the field at tbe
time of harvesting; the   leaves   will
be found to be covered with a dark,
blackish green mould,  which may
even be oh the neck   and shoulders
of tbe bulb.    In cases of  severe infection, and   wben   climatic conditions favor tbe development of the
fungus, it will cause  the leaves to
turn   yellow   and    wilt   and   may
even   start gto   rot   tbe   neck.   In
the Okanagan, however, tbe dryness
of tbe oilmate usually preveots such
• severe attack by the fungus.
In seorage, if the humidity and
temperature i re high, the Botrytie
will grow rapidly, producihg a soft
rot whioh rapidly spreads from one
bulb to tbe naxt, Soon tbe whole
sack wiil be rotted, and from one
sack to another until (he whole
block will be a total loss. '
The oontrol of this fungus   lies in
eliminating   infected   bulbs    from
tbose to   be  stored and by proper
sanitary  storage   conditions.   The
beat reseliaare obtained   by storing
in regular onion orates, wbicb   are
slatted at the ends and   sides.   The
orates are to be piles one ahove  the
otber   to a convenient height witb
tbree or four  inches between  tbe
rows, aod the -own staggered to per
mit   maximum   circulation of  air
around tbe onions.   The   humidity
■hould be kept at least below 60 per
oeot and  tbe  temperateie  between
33 and 36 deg. F., care being taken
to prevent freezing. .
High humidiiy und temperature
favor the growih of rot producing
fuugi aud bacteria, and intensity
tbe danger of heating and sprouts.
iog. ^^^
Tbe question of storing onions
may be summed up as follows:
Store only well-matured, sound,
well-cured bulbs which are free
from fungus growth of any kind.
Io stora e tbe temperature aod humidity should be low and ample
circulation of air permitted through
and about the onions.—H. R. Mc
Larty, plant pathologist, Summer,

Under the present system of
banding out eastern returns as soon
as the polls ure closed it <s easily
possible to stampede tbe voting

For instance, the Maritimes are
four hours ahead of British Colombia. Returns from tbe Maritimes
begin to come in before tbe voting

period of twenty-four hours In
Canada would seem to indicate that
careleasneaa is the main cause, oi
accidents. The location of level
crossings is either well-known or
clearly Indicated at a diatance that
gives even a fast driver ample time
to stop. At many sueh crossings
bells automatically ring ae trains

gates are let down. Some are open

"Canada's supreme confidence In

deep -Impression upon' me. Only-
men possessed ot great vision and
aimoat overpowering energy would
have laid so soundly and on suoh
comprehensive lines the foundations
which we have everywhere aeen
for the coming of a great civilization. The nobly planned parliament buildings the ambitious university institutions, the network of
rail-ways, harbor facilities, vast
water powers, electricity schemes,
Irrigation works, and cities planned
Mt on princely lines, have been
conceived for a great to-morrow.
Canada la shouldering financial and
other burdens ln this task of Empire building which
call for sympathy and admiration. It is the white
man'a burden in the -world. One stands amazed that
so feV people should have accomplished so much In
so short a time whieh encompassed Canada's history."
"Since I was here In 1911 there
has been great improvement in the
roads of Canada. Though the
country ia said to have passed
through hard times recently the
enormous numfber of automobiles
now In use appears to indicate a
return or rapidly returning prosperity. Yery many more trees
are conserved on the prairie landscape, the planting of which and

"(1) Canada has laid for foundations on generous Unes. worthy of
a great future. (2) Her waiting
spaces and Britain's need for room
within the Empire for an over

bond of union. (3) The future
prosperity of Canada rests not only
upon agricultural development but
on increased employment of British
labor ln both countries for manufacturing her raw materials. (4)

"Every province of Canada claims
that lt is the land ot opportunity.
I believe that each is entitled to
make that claim and that the opportunity is for more people who
are willing to work primarily on
the land and are determined to
succeed. The vast open spaces
must be populated. As a Scotchman who has met many old countrymen on this wonderful tour via
the Canadian Pacific Hallway
across the Dominion I should like
to see a large influx of Immigrants
belonging to the race "which played
euch a noble part ln the pioneer*
work ln the land of promise for the
young and vigorous. The Old Country can still produce that type. What prevents them from coming ?
They lack the means, not the desire. I believe that
lf our home government and the Dominion Government
could agree to assist them to a gi eater extent than has
hitherto been done, the main obstacle to the flow of
Scottish Immigration into Canada would be removed.
The people must be found, lf not from the Old Land
then taken from elsewhere, but I think you would prefer the old stock."
