Winter Injury
After the exceptionally heavy
losses Irom winter killing last a.*.
son in the Iruit growing districts of
Britieh Columbia, many growers are
now anxious concerning the possibility of bringing their trees safely
through the ooming winter.
Wbile similar climatio conditions
may not again prevail, everything
sbould be done whioh will give tbe
trees added protection.
Maturity, ao ample supply of
food and moisture in the tree itself,
and a protection oo tbe ground to
prevent too rapid change in the
remperature in tbe soil aro impor
lent points to bs considered.
The maturity of tbe tree, and tbs
supply ol Iood in tbo tree oan not.of
oourse,  be influenced now; but we
can adj resistance io the tree in respect ol tbe lat er two poiotss
Wbere irrigation ie practiced, tbe
late irrigation in November, or just
beiore tbe freeze-up, ie especially to
be recommended this year. A few
(all raioe are usually not sufficient
to supply moisture to the tree dure
iog the winter season. It is often
surprieing to see how Blight a depth
of soil is moistened by an apparently
heavy rain A few holes tbree feet
deep sunk in the orchard ia tbe
only wsy of knowing how much
moisture is there. Trees in wbioh
there is an ample moisture supply
much more resistant than those that
are dry.
The value of protection to tbe soil
was most apparent after last year's
conditions. This'protection will be
especially needed thie year. Tbe
treee have made a vigorous attempt
at recovery, and ae a ooosequence
bave now a very large amunt oT
root tissue ol tbia year's growth
These roots will be exceptionally
tender and subjeot to injury. Tbe
killing by frost of wood tissue is
usually due to a rapid drop in
temperature, snd it is to protect
against tbis that cover .should be
given to tbe ground. Where orchards bave had established in tbem a
good cover orop or even a heavy
orop of weeds, they will be protected
from this form of injury. Where
orchards sre in clean, cultivation,
especially where soil is light, a good
dressing of manure or straw would
be most valuable.—H. R. MoLarty,
plant pathologist, Summerland Experimental Station.

t e Same) period in/l924 in onal
min*'-*, while in metalliferous-* mines
tb«* total tatntitirp for tbe nine
months tbis year were three compared with six.in the same period
last year.
The above is a most favorable
showing and is due in very great
measure to tbe care with wbicb the
mining regulations ol tbe province
are being enforced, the Improved
conditions.under wbicb tbe miners
are working consequent upon the
oareful system ol inspection carried
ont by officials ol tbe department,
and the readiness with whicb the
mining Interests comply witb the
department's requirements in the
matter salety appliances, etc.
Ever sinee bis advent to office as
minister ol mines Hon. Mr. Sloan
baa aimed a) making the mines ol
British Columbia as sale as it was
possible lor tbe workers, sod the
grea est care bas beet exercised in
tbe enforcement of the regulations.
In this work Mr. Sloan has met with
ready support from the mine owners, with tbe result tbat tbe ana
nual toll ot fatalities bas- been
steadily decrees ng until today
British Columbia's mines rank at
the t .p ae regards protection lor the
workers. The record is one ol wbich
Mr. Sloan is justly proud.
Ol the fatalities 'n coal miner,one
ocourried in the Reserve mine and
two in the Wakesiah mine of tbe
Western Fuel Corporation of Cans*

mines of the Granby Cooeolipated
Mining, Smelting & Power company
at Cassidy, and one at the Exten*
sion Colliery ot the Canadian Col.
lieries (Dunsmuir), Ltd., all on
Vancouaer island. Thiee oi the
fatalities were occasioned by tails ol
roof and rook, one by mine car one
listed under the head ol "misoela
laneous."
In tbo case ol fatalities in the
metal mines, two occurred at tbe
Britannia mine, Howe S uod, and
one in the Greet Sullivan mine ol

OF MINISTE B
Victoria, October 29—The mining interests of tbe Portland Cat al
dietriot, at present nne ol the most
active sections in the matter ol mining in the province, are heartily in
accord with tbe policy of tbe Hon.
William Sloan, minister of mines,
in his determination to curb tbe
activities of the "wild catUrs" and
place the mining industry of the
provinco upon a firm foundation.
Since the minister f mines inaugurated his polioy oi checking up
the statements issued by a number
of mining concerns by having bis
engineers examine properties the sale
oi stock in which has been promoted by concerns and individuals
whose appeals to tbe public have
not been based upon reasonable
representations, he has been greatly
praised lor sucb policy. The Stewart board ol trade is the latest publio
body to endorse the minister'- ao
tion.'
At a* meeting of tbat organization,
tbe following resolution wss unanimously passed and tbe aetiou ot tbe
board communicated to Mr. Sloan:
"Whereas, certain representatives
ol mining companies operating in
this dietriot have given publicity to
statements lor tbe purpose ol getting money Irom tbe public, that
tbe merits ol the properties are reputed not to warrant;
"And whereas, the minister ol
mines has bad some ol tbese iron-
orties examined and reports of the
conditions existing on tbe said prop
erties published for tbe information
of tbe investing publio;)
~"And whereas, tbe action of the
department ie to be highly commended and endorsed;
"Be it therefore resolved, that this
board forward ao acknowledgement
and appreciation to tbe minister of
mines for the work bis department
has done in thie matter,and further,
tbat this work be continued and
further examinetinns made on all
properties where it would appear
that the statements given out are
not in accord with the conditions
existing oo the properties."

If you were to offer a man his choice of a
good Canadian $10 bill or a lottery ticket for
a $9 capitol prize, you would naturally expect
that he would choose the $10 bill. Yesterday
the people of Canada rejected the good money
and grasped the lottery ticket.
While election returns are yet too incomplete for extended comment, itis not amiss to
say that British Columbia's action yesterday
was extremely disappointing and show a lack
of appreciation of the good work done for her
by her true friends.

Apiculture, of beekeeping, is one of the few
branches of agriculture that does not tend to
exhaust the soil. The account of tbe honey
therefore does mt include the usual item,
"cost of fertilizer." The nectar produced in
the flowers is wasted unless gathered by bees
or similar insects. It has been conservatively
estimated that not over- one-tenth of all the
nectar produced is actually harvnsted. The
study of the honey bee and beekeeping is becoming more gopnlar, and to satisfy those desirous of knowing more about this subject
short courses are being offered in several of
the leading schiols and colleges, among them
Columbia university. Maay people in the
suburbs can not go in for poultry raising, gar
deniug, etc., because of tack of space. For
them a few hives of bees should afford a n iu
teresting and nmu'ierative enterprise.

A discovery made by workmen digging a
trench near tbe site on the outskirts to London where, years ago, remains of a palatial
Roman villa were found with hundreds of Roman coins, of the second century, has puzzled
archeologists. What was first believed to be a
Roman sarcophagus was uncovered, but this
tomb-like masonry proved to be only a parapet
The fresh discovery consists of a beautifully
barrel-shaped stone* chamber, 175 feet high
and 8 feet wide, lighted and ventilated by a
bottle neck aperture, 15 inches wide, iu the
roof of thc dome. The suggestion has be^n
made that the building was an icehouse for
Prior park, the mansion built by Ralph Allen,
the postal reformer and friend of Pope and
Fielding. Other suggestions are that it was a
bottle dungeon or treasure house. An accurate survey having been made, the mystery
building has been filled in.

VERSES TO MY ENEMIES
Why thus to passion give the rein?
Why seek your kindred tribe to wrongf
Why strive to drag tu light again
Tbe fatal fend entomb'd so long!
Think not, if fury ye display,
But eqnal fury we can deal;
Hope not, if wrong'd, bot we repay
Revenge for every wrong we feel.
Why thus to passion give the rein?
Why seek the robe of peace to teart
Rash youths desist, your course restrain,
Or dread the wratb ye blindly dare.
Yet friendship we not ask from foes,
Nor favor hope from you to prove,
We lov'd you not, great Allah knows,
Nor blatn'd yon that ye could not love.
To eaoh are different feelings given,
This slights, and that regards hia brother;

sad 18SS, according to grain figures
issued at Winnipeg on Oct. 1st,
18,918 cars were delivered during
September, 1926s against 4,651 in
September, 1924, and 12,656 in the
same month of 1923. The daily
average for September, 1925, was
6*0 ears ngalnst the previous record
of S22, established in September,
1928.
New records were made hy the
Canadian Nations! in other branches
of the grain, movement also. Marketings durtttg the month were 62,-
207,000 bushels Sgalnst the previous

On soveral days toward the end
of the month, loadings reached from
1,400 to 1,500 cars per day, which
during the ten-hour working day required the loading of approximately
two and a half cars per minute in
order to reach thia total. Reducing
the' time to seconds it was estimated
that at least 00 bushels of grain (the
contents of a farmer's wagon box)
were loaded into a car on Canadian

4,167,00 buBhels,Manitoba; 11,325,000
bushels, Saskatchewan; 2,220.000
bushels, Alberta; total, 17,563,000

SUCCESSFUL MARKETING OF HONEY
Successful marketing of honey
should mean satisfaction to both the
producer and the consumer, Bearing his customer in mind, let the
producer put on the market the best
package of which he if capable.
Let him see tbat his honey is well
ripened apd carefully straihed, that
no particles of wax be left If he
buttles his produot let the glass be
of tbe best and tbe labels, whether
for bottles or pails, be attroctive.
He should also keep his customer
in mind when preparing his sections
for the market, and do his best to
put them up in the most attractive
style, for be must realise that people
"buy tbrough tbeir eyes." Having
prepared his product in tbe best
way, let bim ask a fair price for it.
The public will never begrudge giving sn honest price for a good article. Let bim not cut hie price to
secure a sale over bis negbbor, for
in so doing be damoges the industry
at large.
To increase the number of his
customers he should take every opportunity todisseminate knowled e
of tbe uses to wbich honey may be
put. ,.
Tbe publio as a whole are interested in news, and news of the good
things tbat can be made from honey
are doubly interesting. Tbis is
evinced by tbe eagerness witb wbich
up to-date housekeepers seek such
literature bistributed at exhibitions
and fairs.
Tbe consumer, in his turn, should
be fair. Let him not buy cheap
boney and tbeu complain of being
cheated when be finds that he hae
secured a low grade.
Let him not voioe that absurd
statement tbat granulated honey is
adulterated—honey is too oheap in
this country to warrant adulteration
and granulation takes nothing from
its food value.
Let him keep bis honey io a dry
place, oot subjecting it to chance of
deterioration or fermentation
through absorption of moisture.
When tbe consumer and producer
eaoh look for the best from one another we will be muob nearer successful marketing.
