$1.00 PER YEAB
ELIMINATE CULLS
AND SMALL SIZES
This Is the Advice of R.H.
Helmer ,of Summerland
Experimental  Farm, in
.  a Paper on Thinniug
The fruit crop of 1922 will
soon be born. Past experience
points to the wisdon of taking
every precaution to eliminate
culls and small sizes; these
have been the stumbling block
in the past and will be in the
future. Let us consider for a
moment how culls and small
sizes occur. If our trees are
making a poor growth it is
likely that they will have a
heavy crop, and furthermore,
if this is the "on year" for
bearing, our trees will be overburdened. Both of these conditions crowd the fruit, one
against the other, causing
rubbing or poor color and
the tree with such a heavy
load can not make growth
and form and feed fruit spurs
for the 1923 crop. Therefore
if the trees are left overloaded
we are only exaggerating the
off-year habit and increasing
culls and small sizes. We believe the British Columbia
orchardists are now fully
alive to the fact that soil
building and plant food have
a tremendous bearing on re
turns per tree'and have taken
this up in a whole-hearted way
whioh is gratifying to tbose who
bave preached the gospel. The
method of the thinning of tbe fruit
should be' considered. Wbere trees
aie heavily and evenly loaded tbe
rule should be one fruit every eight
inches and spurs that are apt to
interfere with others sbould be re
lieved, allowing other spurs to rest
and mature for 1923. Where (rees
are not heavily laden good judg
ment must'be used to get the best
quality apples at the minimum risk
of making them into culls. If Ibe
ohances are that tbey will interfere
before reaching full site, it would
oertainly be wise to tbin tbem so
that do injury would oome to tbem.
Nitrate of soda nndoubtedly plays
an important part in fruit bud form
atioD, but we should remember that
if tbe surface soil is fairly dry wheu
we broadcast it on the land, only
that whioh is sown on tbe small area
near the irrigation furrows will be
available unless heavy rains occur.
Bear tbis in mind, as it is closely
interwoven witb the thinning of
apples as regards size and bud
formation. With more spraying and
more time given to the thinning of
the crop the cost per box is iooreased
and it behooves our growers to consider the cheapening of production
along other lines, suob as tbe con
aideration of tbe relative cost of
various cover crops. Are commercial
fertilisers paying their way) Under
cover cropping would one heavy
hone be sufficient on a ten acre
orchaid instead of two? AH tbis is
very closely allied to thinning and
tbe profitable production of extra
fancies.
Minister of Finance
Rejects Tenders
on Bond Issue
Vietoris, May 27.—In an effort
to get tbe best price for Iheir bond
issue, Hon. John Hart, minister of
finance, yesterday declined to accept
any of the tenders submitted by the
fourteen firms wbicb bid on the
•2,000,000 issue of 5 per cent British Columbia government bonds,
wbich are being put out.
Tbe high price bid for the issue
waB 97.82 from Ames & Company,
and Hasty Stuart & Company.
After going into the whole bond
market situation, Mr. Hart decided
to try and get a better price on tbe
bonds.
Avenues of Trees
for Interior Towns
Avenues of trees, most of them
bearing nutritious nuts and affording beautiful shading] is the plan
now being presented te tbe provincial capitol. It is claimed that
towns and suburban parts could not
only beautify their streets but could
at the same tf me acquire an actual
revenue from nuts, such as pecans
and other products. Tbis is a mat*
ter| that is beiogtaken taken up by
the department of agriculture.which
may later confer witb provincial
and municipal officials. Tbe plan, it
is claimed, works well in certain of
the states.
Doukhobors Start Paper;

The Doukhobors have started a
weekly newspaper witb an exclu«

among tbeir own followers, according to a report from Vancouver.
The contents are not easy eo read
by tbe average citizen of British
Columbia, but there seems to be no
fashion page or plates showing the
latest vogue among the sect. The
circulation is said to be about 500
and it is going to be printed by a

Finance Minister Awaiting Information From
Ottawa Regarding Population of Rural Municipalities
Provincial House
in Short Session
Premier Oliver bas issued a state*
ment to the effect tbat the next session of the provinoiall egislature will
oommence not later than November
1 and will end by Christmas. No
session will be held next spring.
The objeot is to bave the house endorse a system of munioipaltaxation
wbicb will be evolved by the administration tbis summer. It is also
expected tbat after tbe new liquor
control act bas been in force for a
few months needed amendments
may be passed. Hon. John Hart,
minister ot finance, states that be
will be able to furnish fuller reports
on provincial revenue and thus as*
sist the municipalities. The move
will also enable the government to
float its bond issue at a more favorable season.
Victoria, May 29.—Misunderstanding whicb appears to exist io
regard to tbe apportionment of
liquor profits and motor license fees
to the municipalities were explnined
on Saturday by Hon. John Hart,
minister of finance. He said that on
February 2 the federal statistician
was asked to furnish the population
figures io the sixty one municipalities io British Columbia.
On Friday a bulletin covering this
was received. It shows the revised
population of tbe cities, but thc
population of rural municipalties
have not been segregated. A wire
was sent to Ottawa asking that this
be done, and a wire was received
saying tbat it would.
The minister said that until he
received tbis information it would
be impossible to arriye fairly at tbe
amounts due eacb municipality. He
added tbat if it appears tbat the
work of segregation will take too
mush time the department may use
approximate figures for the distribution now due and make an adjustment later.
W. T. Ross, who was taken ill
last week,was removed to the Grand
Forks boapital tbis week.
Province Will
Assist Settlers
Following the visit of Hon. E. D.
Barrow, minister of agriculture, to
central British Columbia, comes tbe
announcement from Victoria that
fuller assistance for settlers will be
provided by tbe provincial govern
meat. The minister is working out
a plan whereby it is hoped to fur*
nish settlers with improved machinery and "progress loans," in
cases wbere sufficient progress has
been made to warrant the expenditure. Tbe fullest encouragement is
to be given the formation of "cattle
clubs" throughout the province
Qovernment creameries will be established at points where settlers
have sufficient cows to support such
an establishment.

Granby Turns Millions
in Metal Into Gash
The Oranby Consolidated Mining,
Smelting & Power company is producing about 2,000,000 pounds of
copper monthly, or at the annua!
rate of 24,000,000 pounds. The com
pany also turns out about 4000
ounce of silver a month. It is expected that tbe output will be
further increased, says the Wall
Street Journal.
With a cost of around 11.50 centB
a pound and a 13£ cent copper
market, it is estimated tbat Oranby
is earning at an annual rate of more
than 50 cents a share, withont considering silver returns or expected
saving in fuel costs of between
$150,000 and $200,000 a year.
Granby did not have an easy time
of it in the three years ended De
cember 31. At the end of 1921 the
working capital totalled approximately $145,000. But it is uuder-
stood that the greater part of the
metal inventories listed in the 1921
balance sheet at $3,361,278 have
tnrned into cash. Furtbermoie, the
company since then has sold 30,000
shares ot stock at $25 a share.

500,000 convertible refunding
debenture, 7 per cent bond
issue of the Consolidated
Mining and Smelting Company, Limited, was approved
at a special meeting of shareholders here  this afternoon.
Only $6,000,000 will be
issued immediately. The debentures mature July 1, 1942,
with interest semi-annually,
and they may be exchanged
for fully paid up shares of the
capital stock of the company
at par. One million dollars
of the issue will be used in
the concentrator at the company's Sullivan mine.
Can't Poison Hens
"Chickens and the wild gallinaceous birds seem to be practically
immune from the effects of strychnine. Just wby they have this immunity is a point to be learned. Extensive field operations and operations carried on in tbe laboratory
by tbe Canadian government, the
biological survey, and the public
health service show that a quail
weighing not over five or six ounces
will eat witb impunity enough slrycb
nine poisoned grain to kill squirrels
weighing in the aggregate twenty
pounds. In our extensive operations
in the western states against injuri
ous rodents, we have distributed
over 5000 tons—165 carloads—of
poisoned grain. Although tbe assistants carrying on this work are skilled
in finding dead animals, up to the
present we have been unable to find
one single game bird destroyed by
our operations. It may be of interest to you to know that we have
further safeguarded tbe birds by
using barley and oats instead of
wheat as a vehicle. At the present
time this grain is rescreened so as to
remove all weed seeds whioh, wben
poisoned, might be taken by small
seed eaters." So writes the United
States biological survey. This is in
agreement with John Burroughs'
statement tbat "You can not poison
a hen with strychnine."
That there will be a good
export demand for Northwestern apples is the message
brought to this province by
S. S. Noomaw, British repre-
sntative of the Earl Fruit
company and the California
Fruit Growers' exchange.
However, he urges two
changes in the present handling methods, the first being
that the fruit should be shipped earlier in the season and
the second that more British
ports of entry be used.
"When apples are exported
late in the season they are
more apt to arrive in a dam-
agen condition," he says.'
"and for this reason it would
be better to ship earlier and
then store the apples abroad.
The relative cost of storing is more
than offset by the higher prices paid
on this undamaged fruit.
"Tbere are at least fifteen pons
to which apples can be shipped
direct from Vancouver instead of
tbe three in use during the last season, and this change would bring
them in closer touch with the Eu^
lish retailers.
"Small apples are tbe most in demand—there are more of them to
tbe pound, and in Eogland apples
are sold by weight—and the red
varieties are the most popular.
However, Yellow Newtowns are also
good sellers. Europe will consume
the small Canadian apples and keep
tbem from competing in tbis
country." *.
Tourists Flock to
Visit the Province
Tourists are now llocklig to tbe
coast and interior towns by tbe
thousands and the hotels are being
gladdened after many lean months.
It is believed tbeir number will be
more than double last reason's rec
ord. Tbe new ferry between Sydney
and Anaoortes is believed to be one
important tourist factor for tha
island, Unlike preceding aeasons,tba
visitors are now evincing greatei interest in the whole province, and
enquiries are made for excursions.
Thousands will visit tbe interior.
Many prospective settlers are in tbe
number.

Edward Bellamy and
Radio
FRIDAY, JUNE 2, 1922
That only twenty out of one hundred and
sixty boys and girls continue to the end of
their high school course discloses the weakest
point in our school system.   The testimony of
all investigators is that the chief reason  why
children leave school is that thoy d.;  not like
school. Academic subjects taught in a routine
way are not attractive.   But the fault is not
wholly that of the schools.    Parents should
help their children to acquire regular habits
of application, insist on study  hours, and so
make it difficult for their children to fail. The
most successful pupil is not he who graduates
to th"e first job that offers.
* Michigan has just imported from Lapland
one hundred reindeer and turned them loose
in tho state game preserve on the Upper
Peninsula. The state game commission believes that it is possible to repeat in Michigan
the great success that the government has had
in introducing reindeer into Alaska, where a
small herd has grown in a few years to such
great size that it is now an important source
of meat supply.
Bagasse is the residue of the sugar cane
alter the cane has been crushed and the sugar-
containing juice has been squeezed out of it.
In a mill recently erected in New Orleans
bagasse is treated with chemicals, pulped and
then rolled into boards that, when dry, make
an acceptable substitude for lumber. Siuce
one ton of bagasse, which is very light, makes
three thousand feet of lumber, the waste from
•}he cane fields of Louisiana alone would yield
more than half a billion feet of synthet'c
lumber a year.
In considering the marvellous development
of wireless telephony reference has recently
been made by Dr. J. H. Dellinger ofthe radio
laboratory of the United States burean of
of standards to the remarkable prophetic
dreams of Edward Bellamy.
Thirty-five years ago Bellamy's "Looking
Backward" was the sensation of the year. It
is constructed on a framework of fiction, but
in reality is an economic treatise and outlines
a complete new social system It was first
published jn 1887, and describes the experience of a man who falls asleep for 113 years
and wakes up in 2000 A. D. The book has
run through several editions in England and
America, and has bcen translated into French,
German, Russian, Italian, Arabic, Bulgarian
and several other languages and dialects.
While the work was valued at the time for its
advanced socialistic theories, it had interest
for the casual reader in the very literal description of what appeared to be the most
fanciful and far-fetched conceptions of an
ideal life on this world, where science and co -
operation had eliminated drudgery and harnessed the forces of nature and the wealth of
the world for the equal enjoyment of all humanity.   Bellamy died in 1898.
With the perfection of wireless telephouy,
permitting concerts and addresses to be broadcasted over wide areas, public interest in Bel -
lamy's dream is now being revived, points out
the Toronto Evening Telegram.
The present condition, according to the
Telegram, "was so accurately pictured by Bellamy long before there were any practical experiments in wireless, that his dream of a
model world reads like a prophecy. Moving
sidewalks, not unlike the revolving stairs
which are a feature of modern department
stores, and other conveniences with which the
public are familiar today, are also foretold.
But giant strides must be mada in the next
[.sevonty-eight years if his prophecy of the
new social order is to be verified."
Rust has always been the great enemy of
iron and steel. 'The announcement that steel
that will not rust can now be produced in
quantities and at normal cost means, if correct, that the metal will be used for many
new purposes.
"Never sprinkle the flower beds or garden
plot," says a wise hortiouituaist, "unless you
can make the watering thorough enough to
soak the ground to a depth of several inches."
A light sprinkling is worse than none. It
brings to the surface the little feeding roots
and after the sun has dried up the surfac e
moisture the rootlets are worse off than before

l.iit n spite of the social suavity of the
Russian loaders their diplomatic methods are
bound io be irritating. Those methods are a
compound—intended to be judicious, but not
always succeeding—of bluster and of pained
surprise. They also advance the ingenious
theory that,, since Eussia has nationalized all
proderty, no alien who used to own property
there can recover any of it from the state, but
that all property owned by Eussian citizens in
foreign states can be sued for and recovered
by the soviet state. When the other repre*
scntatives at Genoa expressed a littlo exasperation at such reasoning, they got the polite
reply that all they had to do was to make
their own governments communistic and so
obtain the same rights in private property
that the Moscow rulers claim.-

white and Chinese members of the

husband's medal and certificate.
Tht C. P. E. recoRnised the brav-
•■   of  tht   Chinese   by    monetary
months   ago   when
they were transferred to other ships.
'The story of the rescue is a
thrilling one, though the reports of
the officers of the 'Monteagle' are
not devoted to 'high lights.' dealing
simply with an outline of the actions
taken. Captain Hosken's report
read: On April 7, noon, we left Hong
Kong. By midnight of that date the
wind had increased to strong head
winds and rough sea. On April 8
the wind continued and tht sea was
high, the vessel pitching and spraying the decks.
"At this time a steamer waa
sighted flying signals of distress. I
am pleased to be able to report that
we were able to rescue nie whole
crew of this unfortunate steamer
with the exception of four of the
Chinese sailors, who were apparently drowned when their own boat capsized on being put into tht water.
Owing to the strong winds and high
sea, and the fact that only two boilers of the "Monteagle" were working, it was hard to manoeuvre, adding greatly to the difficulty of the
rescue crew.
French Boat.
"The distressed steamer was the
French vessel "Hsin Tien," of Saigon. At 9.30. a.m. ths "Monteagle" was in a position to lower
her lifeboats and two of these
wer? despatched, one in charge of
Chief Officer Ferguson and the other under First Officer Campbell.
They had Chinese crews. About the
same time the officers of the French
vessel launched two boats, but one
was capsized, and it is believed four
other Chinese seamen were drowned
at the time. The other boat, with
16 Chinese, get safely away.   The
chief officer's boat successfully
reached the "Hsin Tien," and called
to the men on the steamer to jump,
but owing to the high sew running
the Chinese on'-board refused, but
one white man made the attempt
and was taken on board the lifeboat.
The wind and sea drove the first
officer's boat past the sinking vessel, and drifted leeward in spite of
the efforts of the Chinees oarsmen.
The "Monteag-le" shifted to leeward,
picking up the 16 Chinamen In the
"Hsin Tien" boat, then took on the
officer's draft, and finally at 11.45
a.m. picked up Mr. Campbell and bis
men. The 'Monteagle" Chinese wert
willing to venture again into tht
small boats, but Captain Hosken wat
convinced that they did not bavt sufk
flcient stamina to stand (he long
fight necessary to operate the boats,
so he called for a voluntary white
crew. At 12.30 p.m. the volunteers
got a>\ay, and an hour later wert
back with 18 persons. Great difficulty was experienced in getting the
men off the wreck owing to the
heavy seas. At 2 p.m. the lifeboat
with its European crew again left
the "Monteagle." The "Hsin Tien"
was getting very low in tht water,
and there were 31 men to savs. Owing to the wind and sea the lifeboat,
which was working down to the
steamer from windward, missed the
vessel and was driven to leeward.
The "Monteagle" swung around,
picked up the boat and towed It to
the wreck, bound for Swatow from
Shanghai She was off tht Lamrock
Islands, a very dangerous bit of
water, when sighted at 8 a.m. The
"Monteagle" wr.s asked to stand by,
and an hour latei dropping htr to
where sht could probably make thn
side of the "Hsin Tien." At 8 p.m.
the last person was taken off tht
French ship, and 15 minutes late*
all were safe on tht "Monteagle.**,
The total rescued waa six Euro-
peans and 60 Chinese. At 4J0 p-m.
the "Hsin Tien" was sunk.
Praise for Rescue.
"Early in ths morning, whtn thn
Monteagle" was just getting busy
to carry out tht rescue work, thin
French mail steamer 'Amason" cam*
along, stopped and endeavored to
get out a Boat to help, but wat un>
able to de to on account of th*
weather and sen.
"AV ovtr tht China eoaat th*
"Monteagle" and her mtn wtra lauded for the splendid work whieh thty
accomplished. The manager tf th*
Sodett des Transports Maritime*
de Chine, tht captain and officers of
the lost steamer, tendered official
thanks to them and presented them
with an address of gratitude. Th*
French consul-general at Shanghai
wired his heartiest thanks to them
"Mr. G. M. Bosworth, chairman of
the Canadian Pacific Steamship*
Company, Limited, wired to Captain
%.. Beetham, general superintendent
at Vanoouver, as follows: "In connection with the rescue of the French
steamer "Hata Tien" by "Mont-
eagle," please convey from directors
of the company to Captain Hosken.
Officers Ferguson and Campbell
and to ths members of the European and Chinese crew our appreciation of their gallant action. Directors are greatly pleased to have s eh

FOSTER'S FORECAST
Washington, May 29 — Severe
storms are expected on the continent
during the week centering on June 4.
These severe stofnis will bring an increase of rain, and will be uuusually
severe. Some destructive hail storms
are expected.
Northwest—North of latitude 36,
between meridian 90 and Rockies'
crest: Cool wave will cover that division on June 4, -and as that is the
central date of the severe storms you
may expect a cold wave and killing
frosts, Hail is expected June    1   and
2 aud probably near 8th Warm
wave will cover that division 6 or 7;
most rain near 2 and 8.
Pacific Slope—North of latitude
36; west of Rockies' crest: Variations
in temperature fluctuations much the
same as for northwest except about
two days earlier. The tropical storm
on the Gulf of Mexico during the week
center on June 8 will cause lower
temperatures than usual in northern
Pacific slope and probab'y frosts in
northern parts.

The most optimistic mosquito had
uever imagined such a succulent banquet as that afforded by four hundred
bare kneed, kilted Highlands, and
the mosquitoes made the fullest use
of their opportunity. Soon the church
resounded with-the vigorous clapping
of hands on bare knees and legs as
the men endeavored to kill a few of
their little tormentors.
Hearing the loud clupping, the
minister pansed and said: "My
brethren, it is verra gratifying to a
meenister of the Word to learn that
his remarks meet wi' the approbation
of |his hearers; but I'd have you to
remember that all applause is strictly
oot of place in the hoose of God."

soft fruit has to be shipped several
hundreds of miles, as is often tbe
case, and has run the gauntlet of
commission bouses, jobbers, wholesalers and retailers, by the time it
reaches the consumer it is a very
questionable commodity. This condition, plus freight and express
charges, does not conduce to a
healthy demand, hence the advisability of home grown fruit whenever

AMFRiW roMMANDER HONORS CANADA'S DEAD
ON ^ thu occasion oi Ins recunt
visit to Montreal to receive a
degree from McGill University,
General John J. Pershing, Commander-in-Chief of thc United States
Army, paid graceful tribute to Canada's soldiers who gave their lives in
the Great War. At the end of the
day, as he went to his private car in
the Windsor Street C.P.R. Station,
General Pershing took occasion to
pay a visit to the bronze group erected to the memory of eleven hundred
C.P.R. employees who died in the
service of King and country.
At a Canadian Cluh luncheon during the afternoon, General Pershing
had  said:—   •
"I think no army that served in the
world war suffered more than tin.
Canadians; none were more gallant;
none came home with greater laurels
than those American representative!
from north of the 4?th parallel. I
do not wish to draw any comparisons, but out of those 450,000 Canadians who went overseas to fight for
liberty and justice  about  half
casualties. No army has a better record than that, and it is something at
which Canadians und Americans art
justly proud—for we are all Americans in a broad sense."
As the General approached tht
statue he stood to attention and sainted, and later on, with the greatest of
good nature, agreed to pose in front
of it for the benefit of the press photographers. General Pershing is accompanied by Colonel J. T. Loree
(right), and Major Marshall, his aide*
de-camp. •
week in Marcb or the first week in
April. This should be done in tbal
low boxes in tbe hotbed.   Tbe soil
used sbould  be a composit of good
friable loam with an admixture of
decomposed   barnyard manure, or
leaf mould and sand in sucb proportion that it will not set bard.   Sow
the  seed  thinly and evenly, cover
lightly   witb  soil and give a good
watering.   Tbe seed should germin -
ate in about ten days, and from this
time on ibe plants should   have   as
mueh air as can safely be   given to
ensure a good stocky growth. When
the rough or true leaf appears, whicb
will  be  about  fourteen days after
germination, tbe seedlings should receive tbeir first   transplanting   into
flats, about two inches apart   each
way.   Tbe  soil for   tb.s should be
much tbe same as tbat in wbich the
seed was sown, but not quite as fine.
Shade lightly for a day or two from
tbe bright sun, but  do  not  coddle
unncessarily.   Do   not   overwater.
See that tbe roots get it only   wben
needed.
By May 12 tbe plants should bo
ready for tbeir second transplanting
Ibis time into the cold frame. Prepare a site by treadidg a piece of
ground firm. On tbis place the box
of your frame and introduce three
inchns of good soil, consisting of two
parts loam and one part rotten manure. Make moderately firm and set
your plants in tbis six in :hes apart
eacb way. Shade is necessary for a
day or two. Remove the lights entirely on all favorable occasions.
Safeguard at night by adequate coverings. Fincb out ill side roots aB
tbey appear.
Tbe field position should, if possible, be one sheltered from rough
winds.but open to sun and air. Hcie
the plants should be set as soon as
danger from frost is past. Let the
rowB be three feet apart, with tbe
plants 12 inches apart in the rows.
By pushing a spade under the plants
it will be found that they will bring
away all tbe soil in tbe bed witb
them, and will receive but little, if
any, cbek. Stake with short stakes
—two feet is ample, ond give their
first lie as soon as planted. The
first truss of bloom will be in evidence at this date and fhould bu re
tained. Once a week go through
your plants and remove all side
shoots and distorted bloom, as the
Utter only produce cull fruits. As
sjon as the secoud truss of blm mi invisible pluck out the terminal point
of your plant, leaving one leaf, beyond the second truss. The second
and last tie should now  he given.
Your mature plant will therefore
consistof about nine leaves and two
trusses jf fruit.
Keep the hoe going, but not too
deeply. If irrigation is practiced so
much the lielter.a*. by a regulirsup-
ply of moisture you will be able to
reduce cracked fruit lo a minimum.
Ripe fruit may bu looked for early
in August, and the plants, if reasonably well cured for, should, in a fair
season, yield from two to four
pouuds of ripe fruit eacb.
Among many desirable varieties
