Importance oi Selecting
The Right Varieties
of Apple Trees
The proper relectionof varieties is
probably tbe most important quesi
tion confronting an orchardist. He
must make a selection to suit not
only his climatic conditions but the
particular marketing situation he
occupies as well. Hardiness is a
primary consideration in many parts
of Canada. If catering to a foreign
market, only varieties of good keeps.
iog aod shippiug qualities should
be' considered. Selection should be
limited to not more tban fite varie.

Santa Rosa. Cil , April 12 —The
quietude of death hung over tbe
"Valley of tbe Moon" today as San-
ta Rosa ond vincinity prepared to
bury the remains of Lutbej Burbank,
its first civzen and a man beloved
around the world.
Flags are at half mast and there
wee a spirit of reverence in tbe air,
particularly in the vicinity of the
Burbank bome, within whicb the
body of the great naturalist lay.
Deatb came to Burbank at 12:13
a.m. on Sunday, ending an illness of
a   heart
| attack and nervous disturbance. He
j died peacfully aod   painlessly, sinking   from  a stale of coma into un*
consciousness and  then passing   to
the end.
Oo Wednesday Santa Rosa, and
in fact tbe whole section for miles
around, will do bim homage io a
great open air funeral service in tbe
local park.
There will be no orthodox re.
ligious ceremony or no viewing of
th> remains by tbe curious if rever
ent throng. The worn out body of
tbe 77.year-old man wilt be the
quiet surroondiog8 of hia home until it iB put away.
The service will be merely a pub-
l!o demonstration of tbe love felt for
Burhauk bere. Judge Ben Lindsey
is hurrying here* from Denver tode»
liver the eulogy, in compliance with
a request Burbank made eome time
Tbere will be a reading of the
famous tribute Robert Ingersoll delivered for bis brother and the ritual
of tbe MaBopic lodge, to wbicb Burbank belonged. Dr. Caleb S. S.
Dutton, a TJuit rian pastor, will assist. Tbat will end the service. There
will be no prayer or benediction, for
Burbank, an "infidel" by his own
admission, would bave neither.
His was not faith of orthodoxy.
"My religion is a religion of love,"
he declared recently in an interview
and from the pulpit of a San Fran
cisco church. "I love everybody."
Burbank's last written words were
another statement on bis belieis, an
effort to clear up tbe clouds of mis.,
understanding wbicb followed bis
expressions oo religion and wbicb
brought down upon bim both condemnation and applause from all

At tbe convention conducted re
cently in Va couver of theCanadian
Society of Technical Education, a
paper was read by Mr. Hairis de
scribing bis investigations of plant
growth at tbo Corvallis, Oregon,
Agricultural college.
Asa result of these experiments,
Mr. Harris has discovered that the
hair rootlets of most trees, especially
fruit trees, do not function and tbat
trees with the rootlets cut off do
better than tbose oo wbicb they are
retained All that is needed is to
leave a good "scaffolding" and some-
thing to bold them in   tbe ground.
Mr. Harris also leode support, to
a certaio extent, to the theory advanced by Pickering, who plauted
trees by "ramming" them into the
ground. This announcement was
considered most important by several horticulturist present, since, as
-Professor Buck stated, it upsets present practices aod tbe fundamental theory of tree planting, it
having been considered necessary to
preserve these rootlets.
Deao Clement and others voiced
the hope that the paper would be
published by Mr. Harris, the dean

Notes • Notions • Notables
Despite war's setback of scientific progress,
as applied to the useful arts and needs of peace
times, civilization seems still to be moving
ouward with surprising velocity. Our grand
fathers lived in a day when whatever research
and discovery was going on seemed to net
little that could be applied to everyday uses.
Those wbo have looked into the matter are of
the opinion that the slow movement of pro
gress a generation ago was due principally to
the absence of the urge which comes from a
great necessity. The soil of the country as it
existed fifty years ago was rich from the deposits of recently cut forests. Lumber was
cheap «nd plentiful, water supply abundant
and uncontaminated, there were hundreds of
thousands of square miles of free range, for
cattle and livestock, while inland streams and
the woods were alive with edible fish a d
game. Food and shelter for man and beast
were easily supplied and the thousands othor
wants, as we know them today, did not exist.
Nothing lasts forever, not even the natural
resou ces of a country. A quarter of a century ago substitutes began to be sought out
Soil in" the older provinces began to lose its
great surplus of native fertility and chemists
set to to work to determine the missing ingredients and students began to search out
s urces from which the deficiency could be
supplied. Some began to see that lumber was
mounting in price and that forests, unprotected, wonld not last forever. The result was
that substitutes for wood were sought and
means devised for granting a longer life to the
timber going- into construction. Brick began
to be used more extensively in constrnction;
slate supplanted shingles on the roof. Similar
changes came about in tood supplies for man
and beast. Neglected, or ignored, sources
were called upon, the outstanding discovery
being that many common vegetable sources
would yield needed oils and fats previously
supplied by meat animals. Each invention
seems to bring into use some new product or
force, which has been dorment or wasted
down through the ages. Each discovery seems'
to be but a challenge to some other line of research. The twentieth century realizes that
we are only scratching the surface of the possibilities which He beneath the sea and the
mountain. Discovery is going ahead so fast
that the next generation may look back on
this as a age of crude instruments and limited
discovery. All the straws now blowing point
that way, at least.

of less than six months tend to be calm even
when just awakened or interrupted at meal
time, says the doctor, ut from six months on
perverseness increases until the third year,
oft "in with a minor high point of resistance in
the eighteenth month, which is particularly
apt to appear in the case of girls. After the
third year resistance gradually decreases unril

an adult who knows how to make himself

Power from potatoes is Henry Ford's solu
tion for the world's worry about fuel in the
future. We can grow our fuel, he said in a
recent interview, and convert it into electric
energy to heat our cities. Sawdust, apples,
weeds—every bit of vegetable matter that can
be fermented contains potential fuel. An
acre of potatoes in one year will produce
enough alcohol jo drive the machinery necessary to cultivate the field for a hundred years,
Ford declares.

Archie Gee, the good-natured chef

Copper is mined chiefly in Canada in northern Ontario, largely in the Sudbury district,
and in several districts of British Columbia.
In 1886 the total output amounted to 3,505,-
000 pnuuds, and it was more than doubled in
six years. Copper was known to exist in the
Sudbury district as early as 1856, but practi
cally no attention was paid to it until 1883,
when the main line of the Canadian Pacific
railway was being constructed. Soon nickel
was found, and the mining of the latter has
gone aheed cf copper mining. In 1923 the
output of copper in Canada amounted to
about 88,000,000 pounds. One year's outpu
of copper in Canada has reached the value of
about *30,000,000.

Poems From Eastern Lands
On the Misery of Soldiers
Yellow now is all the grass;
All .(he days in marching pass.
On the move is every man-
Hard work, far and near, they plan.
Black it every plant become;
Every man is torn from home.
Kept on foot, our state iB ead;—
As if we no feeling had I
No rhinoceroses we I
Tigers do we care to be?
Fields like these so desolate
Are to us a hateful fate.
Long-tailed foxes pleased may hide
' Mong the grass, where they abide.
We, in box carts slowly borne,
On the great roads plod and mourn.

Manitoba Bees Set out to Make a Record
Type Your Laundry Tickets on This
Who ever heard ot a bive ol bees that in one day
gathered no leas than 25 pounds of honey? If anyone
doubts that the busy bee can De as busy as all that, refer
him to Mr. W. D. Writ»ht who has a large and prosperous
apiary near Souris, which is in southern Manitoba on the
Canadian Pacific Railway, and if anybody doubts the
fertility of the Province of Manitoba or wonders if the
summer suns there shine down on wide fields of glorious
bloom, let him read the following which is gathered from
the columns of the "Souris Plaindealer."
It was on July 31st last that the hive of bees beside
which Mr. Wright stands in the above picture gathered
and stored the twenty-five pounds and established a
record for thia continent and perhaps for the whole
world. There was no doubt about its being true, because
the Provincial Department of Agriculture made the test.
From July 13 to August 3, the hive stood on a scale and
every evening when the bees' work was done and they had
gathered around their fireside to talk it over, the weight
of the hive was taken. The first gain was on July 14
when 1 }i pounds was brought in and from that quantity
the daily take varied up to 14 and 16 pounds. But on
July 31 the bees got together and made a special effort
just to show what they could do in the way of establishing
Perhaps they had just discovered that their efforts
were being recorded. Anyway we can imagine that the
night before, the queen called the crowd together, or
perhaps only the captains of teams, and said something
like this:—
"Now, boy?, the world's got its eye on you and tomorrow's the day we go over the top. Any lad that comes
ia here with less than his full load gets into trouble and
the chap or team bringing in the biggest bag gets a wax
medal with my picture on one side and his own name on
the other."
And how they worked that day! They worked all the
other days of the season too, because the total honey
produced for the season was 4S.}4 pounds. Of course
there were two or three rainy days when they stayed
at home and did chores around the hive, and two or three
other days when it didn't rain, but they stayed home
anyway to look after the local elections or something like
that. And when it was all over no doubt the queen said
"Well; it's been a pretty good working season, I'll tell the
world," and as always is the case the Queen waa right.
Having proved her superiority as an organizer etc.,
it was natural that wider spheres of endeavour should
call to this queen, so Mr. Wright shipped her to a%big
Bee firm in Alabama who are sending him another queen
now, ten of her daughters next spring and three two-
pound packages of bees with three more of her daughters
in command. The trade was worth $35 to the Floradale
Apiaries. The locating, capturing and caging ready for
exportation of the Wright queen was witnessed by J. W.
Breakey, M.L.A., and a representative of the Plain-
dealer. She was indeed a very fine lady and was head of
an enormous population that objected pretty strenuously
to her removal, and you cannot really blame them for
Mr. Wright's Floradale Apiaries thia year produced
almost four tons of honey and he hopes that next year
Southern Manitoba and the neighborhood of Souris
in particular will again Bhow the world something startling in the way of honey production. In the meantime
our friend the queen will continue her campaign for a
bigger and better honey crop.
This, ladies and gentlemen; is a
picture of the only Japanese
typewriter in captivity. It is known
as the "Hobun typewriter. It inhabits the offices of Shanghai, Tokio
and other Oriental cities; is quite
harmless but Bomewhat difficult to
control. It is more complicated than
the Theory of Relativity, runs as
smoothly as a tank crossing the
Rockies and makes more noise than
a duet by a boiler factory and a
Salvation Army band.
Its function is that of typewriting
the Japanese language. It was invented by an Irish mechanic named
Kiota Sugimoto and was. on tho
market in 1915. As a piece of
machinery it is infinitely superior to
tha 'typewritia Americana'. The
latter very seldom haa more than 40
keys, the Hobun has three thousand;
the Americana prints a total of 84
characters, and the Hobun nearly
four thousand. Then again, anyone
can operate the American variety
but how many of our stenos could run
a Hobun, with its thousands of keys
and hundreds of levers.
It has (as we suspected) a unique
key-board arrangement. In fact, it
has no key-board at all. The type is
arranged face upward and serves the
dual purpose of key-board and
printing-type. To one side of the
platen is a lever which, when do-
pressed over the desired character,
affectionately picks the character up,
rubs it gently on "an ink-roller and
finally conveys it up to the platen on
which the paper is rolled and thus,
triumphantly  prints the  character.
We have stated that the machine ll
complicated but really it is simplicity
itself — you merely learn the
Japanese language and a fern thou.
sand of ideographic Chinese characters; familiarize yourself witn the
Hobun's three thousand keys, acquire
mastery over its multiplicity of levers
and then — go ahead and type.
The specimen shown above waa
captured by Canadian Pacific officials
in China and now occupies much of
tho floor space of their office in Shanghai. The expert Chinese stenographer Heated in front of it, has beea
known, when a rush is on, to produce
as much as ono whole page of neatly
typed Chinese Ideographs a day on his
Hobun. This record has not yet beei
beaten. J

Carelessness Destroys
3,000,000 Annually
of Canadian Forests
Loss of standing timber by fire continues to be appalling.   On the average
over 3,500 million board feet are de-.
stroyed    annually.     The    forests   of
Canada are being depleted at a rate
they cannot possibly withstand; more
than half of this depletion is due   to
fire, insects and decay.   The future of
the forest industry is just as dependent
on the seedling trees and young growth
as the pulp and paper and lumber mills,
and industry generally, are dependent
on mature timber—both must be saved
from the ravages of fire.
In addition to the shelter afforded by
the forest to the farmer and his stock,
settlers in forested regions are vitally
dependent on the woods for winter
employment. Care with fire in land-
clearing operations is all-essential—
burned timber pays no wages.
Canada has the finest inland fishing
in the world, but the splendid food
and game fish require clean, cool water
in the streams to ensure prolific production. Forest fires are inimical to
fish life.
Game animals attract foreign tourists
and induce Ganadians to seek pleasure,'
health and adventure in the great outdoors. These animals are distinctly a
forest resource—utterly dependent on
it for protection and food. Forest fires
are most destructive of such wild life.
Ninety per cent of the forest fires are
caused by carelessness. Are you doing
your part to prevent this wanton waste
and destruction?
