Veir.on, July 8.—Application for reduced freight rate's
for the Okanagan were presented by W. M. Scott, traffic
manager of the Associate*--
Growers, at the railway commission s tjing here Wednesday.
E. J. P.hambers, president
and general manager of the
Associated, spoke of the unfairness of Ontario shippers
enjoying a lower rate westward than the British Columbia shippers had eastward,
t.:eaeby subjecting the growers to uniair competition in
their p imary market. Mr.
Scott substantiated his submission by comparisons which
showed the eastern shipper
had in some instances a
cheaper rate by 03 per cent
than the British Columbia
For instance, fot Veiuon to Van
oouver shipper* are assessed 40 cents
per hundredweight for a distance of
315 miles, while the shipper at
Grimsby, Oat., enjoy a rate of 39Jc
to St John, N.S., a distance of 713
Under crosssexamination by Mr,
Flintoft, of the counsel for lhe C P.
ll , Scott said the rate of $1 50 now
in effect to eastern Canada was in
competition with similar rates published by the transcontinental freight
tariff, wbich quoted rates not only
from British Columbia points, but
points in tbe eastern elates and also
Washington and Oiegon, to Canada
Mr. Flinlofi t en suggested it would
be in order ii the rates in Alberta
were -educed to i*jcre*ee lhe rates
farther east. This nas sirongiy objected to by the witness, lt was
brought out ia cro's examination
that an enormous quantity of boxed
apples would be imported into eastern Canada.

Irrigation brings with it new
problems which are not enoountered
by the orchardist who relies n
natural prccipitalion lor his supply
of moisture, says R. C. Palmer of the
Dominion experimental fare* statim
at Summerland. The cost of delivering the water aud of distributing it
over the soil constitutes a heavy boh
nual tax on the land. This tax can
be offset ooly by the production of
heavy yields of high grade produce.
In order that the high yields may be
secured atteast expense it is essential tbat water be applied lo the
1 *nd in the most economical m-nnner
possible. Tbis can be accomplished
only when reliabte information is
available concerning tbe best methods of applying water, the most desirable amouot to apply and the
most advantageous time to apply it.
With tbe object of obtaining tbis in«
formation a Dumber of carefully
planned experiments have been
carried out at the Summerland experimental Btation during tbe past
ten years.
Since the furrow method of irrigation is adopted in practically all
the irrigated orchards of British
Columbia, the water used in the
station orchards has been applied
by this method. An answer Ims been
sought to such questions ae: ' What
is tbe most satisfactory implement
with which to mark out the fur-
rowfci" "How deep should-the fur
rows be and how far apart?" "Wbat
is the most econical length of runt"
After trying out a number of mark"
ing devicos it bas been found that a
small Gsiiich plow gives as good snt»
isfaction as any. Relatively deep
furrows are advisable, especially
wben cover crops are being grown.
In determining tbe distance apart
that furrows shou d be placed the
one safe rule to follow is that the
furrows should be sufficiently close
bc tbat after a normal irrigation all
the Boil between tliem, at a depth of
of a foot or so below the surface, is
moisteued. It hus been found by
repeated tests thai after a 30 hour
irrigation it is only in exceptional
oases tbat the moisture bas spread
more than 18 inches sideways from
tbe furrows. In tbis connection it
may be well to point out that water
trivets ia-ter io a downward direcs
tion tban it does sideways. Where
furrows are placed a long way apart
and water i' run a long time in tbe
nope of moistening ell the soil be
t teen them, there is usually a great
deal of loss through seepage. The
must desirable ieogth to run depends largely on the nature of tbe
soil. On porous soil of sandy or
gravelly nature, best results are secured with comparatively short furrows, whereas with soils of a more
impervious character, such as tbe
clays and silts, looger furrows can
be used to good advantage. - Even
on heavy soils, a furrow much more
than a hundred yards in length is
likely  to   result in   a very uneven
1 distribution of water.
Tue depth -and condition of  tha
soil determines, to a large extent,
the amount of water which it is desirable to apply at eacb irrigation.
Unas been found that good orchard
soil will hold about two inches of
water for each foot in depth, so
that where there iB only a foot or
two of good Boil underlayed with
sand or gravel its moisture holding
capacity is very limited. On the
other hand, deep, fertile soils pro
vide a reservoir in whicb large
amounts of water can be stored.
Even with a soil of good depth and
texture, applicati n of more than
five inches of water at a time ueu
ally means that a good deal of
moisture percolates down below the
reach of tree roots. Unfortunately
few growers are equipped with the
measuring devices necessary to as
certain how much water they are
applying. When it is not possible
to incisure the water it is most important that the soil be exumined
to determ'ne the distribution of
moisiure. The aim should be to
continue applying water until the
soil is moistened to the depth oo
cupied by the tree roots, There is
only one way to find out when this
amount of water has been applied
and that is by examining the soil
at difierent depths. . A strongly
made spade with narrow blade is
useful in making such examination.
when this occurs the trees are sure
to Buff r. Furthermore, it is very
difficult to get water to Bprend uni
formly in soil that has becom* thoroughly dried out. Io deep SDils
which are lotentive of moisture, irrigation at monthly intervals is
often sufficient, but on lighter,
shallower soils, applicatiods at
weekly intervals are sometimes necessary during tbe heat of summer.
Water should be applied before tbe
trees show signs of buffering from
lack of moisture. Wbere a vetch
cover crop is used the effect of a dess
ficiency in tbe water supply is usually evident in this crop before the
tre.es are in danger. A simple test
of whether irrigation ie required is
to squeeze a ball of earth together
in the hand. If the ball falls apart
wben the hand is opened, water
should be applied.
Ladino Clover
With regard to frequency of application, the most import nt point
to keep in mind is that the soil
should   not be   allowed to become
Ladino clover is a giant white
clover whicb, so far, bas only been
grown in one locality io British Columbia—tbat is, at Creston, in the
Kootenay district, where it bas been
found to be suocessful and a good
honey plant, lt is described bb being suitable for permanent pastures
and can be cut for hay, yielding
from H to 3 tone per acre. It is
stated that it will carry from 30 to
40 per cent more stock than alfalfa,
red clover, alBike, or ordinary white
clover, and also that it will increase
the   milk supply  and improve the
very   dry   between   irrigations, for! soil   by   storing   up   nitrogen.    It
makes a more palatable feed crop
for stock than red clover and it
makes a more succulent growth. It
is also superior to red clover on account of its being a permanent crop
aud it grows almost, if no! quite, as
tall. Tbe following report hae res
ceutly been received from T. B.
Maweon, Creston, who has been en*
perimenting with Ladino clover:
"I have found Ladino clover quit;
hardy and suitable for this climate
At date of writing (April 3) it has
Btarted to make growth, in some
places being two and a hali inches
high. Tbere iB no doubt of its being
a good honey plant, as tbe bees work
on it freely. Like -alsike, it blossoms
more profusely under semi-arid conditions where the growth is stunted.
A long  article  appeared in the
Country Ueatlemao in 1922 describ
ing Ladino clover,  from which the
tbe following ext.acts are taken:
Ladino clover is really a giant
form of white clover.. It was de
veloped in Italy and for years has
been extensively cultivated in the
irrigated lands of Lombardy. The
name comes from Lodi, wbere it
had ita beginning. In these irrigated
lands nf Italy it is said to outyield
alfalfa, often running five to six
tons to the acre. Like white clover,
it is a true perennial and once down
will hold its grip on tbe land for all
time, unless grazed to extinction,
which is very difficult. It makes
from 50 per cent to tbree or four
times more growth than can be ex
pected from ordinary white clover,

This is the second time Mr. Meighen has
been prime minister of Canada. The first time
he inherited the office; and then tha Canadian
elect rs said they did not want him. The
second time he was elevated to the high position by being, seemingly, tbe favorite of the
governor-general. But there are no signs that
the people regard Mr. • Meighen in a more
favorable light tod«?y than did on the previous
occasion when his goverbment appealed to the
country, and it seems to be a pretty safe bet
that after the forthcoming election, if he does
not retire to private life, he will be the leader
of the opposition.

Do not drain off the juices from canned
vegetables and throw them away. There is no
reason for throwing away the liquor from
canned foods unless there are evidences of
spoilage, according to the United "Sjates de
partment of agriculture. Then the solid contents shonld also be discarded. Thc idea that
canned vegetables themselves are safe to eat
if the juice from the same can is unfit, has no
fouudation in fact. The practice of draining
probably goes back to the days when vegetables were put up in brine too salty to Le
served with the vegetables. They then had
to be drained and sometimes soaked in clear
water to make them edible. There is no excuse for this practice now. The liquor around
canned vegetables contains valuable mineral
matter aud draining it off means important
loss in nutritive value.
Included in the last sale of American government fur seals held at St. Louis were the
pelts of two sea otters. These hides had been
confiscated by government agents in Alasua
from fur poachers and were purchased by a
raw fur dealer at $250 each. To old-time fur
buyers this incident brought backmemones of
the days when sea ntter pelts were as numerous as seal skins. Now, not only is this fur
bearer protected by federal law, but its extinction is freely predicted by residents of the
Aleutian islands, Alaska, where they formerly
existed in fair numbers. Of tbe two species
native to the north country, the deep sea otter
is the more iateresting and the most valuble
from a fur standpoint. Its pelt is considered
the most valuable of all fur bearers. This
aquatic animai is said to never visit land, using tbe great Boating kelp as its resting place
and breeding grounds. Its fur is a rich, silvery-purple brown.

Friday has lost much of its terror for tin
deep-sea sailor since so many ocean liner?
have made it their sailing day with no disastrous resnlts, but there are old salts still living who consider it a "hoodoo.'' The Spanish

Friday. Sharks following a ship means a dea'h

drowned sailors; and odd numbers are lucky.

Paris bids fair to be the first of the world's
largest cities to solve its rapid transit problems
high in the air. Recent reports from the
French capital indicate that actual construction work soon may begin on a remarkable
high-speed air railway along which propeller
driven cars suspended from an overhead mono
rail will travel 60 miles an hour, carrying
thousands of commnters between Paris and
the suburb of St. Denis. Designs for the airway have been completed, examined by expert
engineers and found to be practicable, writes
Arthur A. Stuart in Popular Science Monthly.
Tne proposed car for the Parisian line would
be virtually a propeller-driven airship suspend
ed from and running along a rail. Its body,
tapering off at both ends like a dirigible
w.ould b built of duralumin, extremely

sixty to one hundred passengers. The entire

These are TBchantoga or Stoney
Mountain Indians — "people of
the woods'". • Time was_when they
were a blood-thirsty lot, with a
partiality for white men's scalps
and an unpleasant habit of slaying anybody they did not happen
to approve of. But look at them
now. Their war-like glory has do-
parted and they realize that the
white-man is not such a bad sort of
chap after all. Big Chief Powder
face is as friendly as a Rotary president, and he and his six hundred
braves come over evory year to
Banff, all decked out in their gala
attire, and Y-elebrate the burying of
the hatchet hy a two-day carnival
and Pow-wow.
Tho occasion is called an "Indian
Day and Pow-wow' and consists of a
series of parades, sports and encampment scones and events. It
always fakes place on tlio third
Monday and Tuesday In July, failing
this year on the 23rd and 24th.
Tho individual in tho. insert is not,
lad never was, blood-thirsty nor fond
of scalps. It is the Duke of Connaught in his regalia as an Honorary
Chief of the Stoney Mountain Tribe.
The picture was taken on tho occasion of His Excellency's visit to the
Rockies when he was Governor-
General of Canada during tho war.

LONG before the paleface came
to the broad and rolling

and appreciated the curative properties of Little Lake Manitou,
which is located' near Watrous,
Saskatchewan, on the main line of
the Canadian National Railways.
And the first white settlers who
came, in advance of the railways,
to settle on their homesteads in
antl around Watrous, soon learned
of this lake with its highly mineralized waters, so that Little Lake
Manitou had its reputation made
when the first settlers reached the
Today thousands of residents of
prairie cities find Little Lake Manitou an ideal watering place, and
excursions are run from time to
time over the Canadian National
Railways from Saskatoon and
other cities to provide citizens with
a means of reaching this delightful spot.
The waters of Little Lake Manitou are so highly mineralized that
the swimmer finds no difficulty in
floating on their surface and at the
same time their mineral qualities
are health-giving in their action.
With a good sandy beach for the
kiddies to play on, and water
chutes and other enjoyment features erected for tlieir entertainment, Little Lake Manitou has become the ideal picnic spot for the

if he has paid, refuse to take tbe

who owed for a newspaper could not
stop taking it and expect the pub
