Ireland, which holds such a secure
place ln many hearts, ls not a large
country:. The longest line of laml
.-which can be drawn ls three hundred
miles—from Fair Head, In the northeast, to M.lzen Head, In the southwest.
Taknig the country as a rough lozenge, the short diagonal from northwest to southeast is about two hundred miles.
The terrain itself may be roughly
divided into three parts; a mountainous region in the north, en equally
mountainous region in the south, and
a great central- plain.
What you will see in Ireland as a
visitor deptnds upon your mind.
Names, little crannies in cities, will
work their white eery magic on you.

James, but agalnsa famine and pestl

On Lough Erne you will find that
Saint  Patrick's purgatory which  enthralled the mind of medieval Euroqe
and which ls still a place of devout
At Ballysrannon you may ee fortunate enough to see the salmon, lying
packed Uke sardines, awiating the op

At Muckross the fantastic cliffs will
hold you. In that one named the Market house you will see a blood brother
of the rock out of which the African
sbultor hewed the fearsome Sphinx.
In Donegal you will see the desolate
Rosses, a tangle of small lakes and
great granite boulders, and he who
loses his way in that desert by night
is the most luckless of beings. The
great mountain of Donegal Is Errlgel,
and Its white cap is not snow but
white quartz. From its top, on a fait
day, you can see the Scottish Hebrides, Islay and Jura, floating on the
water like young brown gulls.
From Horn Head, sometimes out of
a mist will emerge the rocky battlements of Tory Island, Uke something
evoked by an enchanter's wand. The
roar of the Atlantic crashing into that
cavern known as MacSwine's Gun

Belfast is about as Irish a city as
Paisley is. It is of no antiquity and,
except for commerce, of no importance; but within eas** reach of it are
the blue Mourne mountains, the great
Dun of Downpatrick, where the country folks say that St. Patrick St.
Briglt, and St. Columkille are all three

At Antrim ls the greatest round
tower ot Ireland, nearly one hundred
feet high. Near the town Is Lough
Neabh, the largest lake In the British
isles, bordered with orchards.
At Balllnderry Jeremy Taylor wrote
his most Important works,and near It,
at Whtteabbey, Anthony Trollope
wrote the autobiography.
North of Belfast, at Larne, begin
the nine Glens of Antrim: Glenarin,
Glencloy, Glenarlff, Glen Ballyemon,
Glenaan, Glencorp, Glendun, Glen-
shesk, and Glentow. Near Cushendall
is Ossian's grove. Thackeray called
Glenarlff a miniature Switzerland.
North of Antrim is Bathlin island,
or Raghery, as the Gaels call lt. The,
stormy sea between Ireland and Raghery is called Sloch-na-mara,or Gullet
of tht Ocean, and can only be sailed
over in the finest of weather. Here
is Bruce's refuge.- It is a gallant little island, with an immensity of birds.
It is mentioned not only by Charles
Kingsley, but by Ptolemy.
Near Ballycastle is the famous Car-
rick-a-Rede, a ropewalk over a chahm
sixty fe«|t wide and ninety deep, a
couple of planks laahed together by
rope. The handrail, also a rope,
swings away from you as you cross.
The Giant's Causeway, near by, ls
more curious than beautiful. The best
time to see it Is in a gale, when the
tessellated terraces are assaulted by
a cavalry of foam. Parts of it are
called by fantastic names: the Honeycomb, Lord Antrim a Parlor, the Organ, the Giant's Loom, the Gateway,
and the Lady's Fan.
Howth is northward, with the sma'l
Islands of Ireland's Eye and Lam-bay.
Through Swords and Malahlde one
travels to Drogheda whose walls still
show the effect of the lord protector's
cannon, and whose river, the Boyne,
shows so little effect of Ireland's
greatest battle.
Westward of Drogheda is New-
grange, famous for its Druid burial
mounds, with a passage of great stones
forty-eight feet long leading into a
stone-roofed chamber. It is the oldest
Celtic monument in Europe. The
Norsemen are supposed to have rifled
it, so that no man knows what it contained.

of Glens, Uke Glen of the Downs, the
Devil's glen, and mountain lakes like
Tay and Lough Dan, Glenadough, or
the "Glen of Two Lakes,' as the
Gae ic name means, is a lone, solitary
glen in a wild region, the upper lake
of which has something terribly sinister about it. Here are the ruins of
seven churches, which have stood for
upwards of twelve hundred years.and
a round towed. It ls the site of the
hermitage of St. Kevin.
The Vale of Avoca and the .Meeting

is the birthplace of Admiral Sir William Fenn, the father of the founder

The English poet, William Wordsworth, writing about Killamey, says:
"In point of scenery this is the finest
portion of the British Isles," which
ls treason to his own lake country.
The word Killamey means Church

three: the Upper or McCarthy

Lough Leane.

Vancouver, June 88,—Pacific coast
apples shlppod late in the season
have keeping qualities, when properly handled, which allow thorn to
^compete out of season with Australian
apples on the British fresh fruit market, according to in ormation received
through the local office of tbe Oriental line.
The Australian apples arrive on
the British market In May. Prior to
that time there had always been a
marked shortage of apples on the
British market and British Columbia
apples were not well represented.
Last March the Blue Star line extended the shipping period for that
season hy placing two large carriers,
the Celtlcstar and the Gaellcstar, on
the berth. Both have discharged
their cargoes ln the United Kingdom
and German markets and prices received were (practically the highest of
the season.
The Blue Star line plans Increasing
its fall and winter schedule for the
coming season, and the Pacific
agents, the Admiral Oriental line,
say that the new schedule will be announced early in July.
A lamentable accident occurred at
HUrldesville last Saturday afternoon
when Alfred Gausten, aged seven, of
that place, was Btruck and almost in
stantly killed gy a motor car driven
by W. G. Chahley, who lives on a
ranch a few miles east of this city.
Mr. Chahley was returning from a
motor trip  to Vancouver,  and  when
he arrived at Bridesville young Gaus
ten made an attempt to run from the
bunkhouse  to  the  hotel  iri  front  of
the car.   The driver honedk his horn,
but as tho lad was deaf and dumb he
was unable to hear the warning. Mr.
Chahley  made   every    endeavor    to
avoid the boy by turning off the road
but the youth kept on and was struck
on the right side of the head, fractur
ing   his   skull by coming in contact
with the headlight.
Coroner A Francis, of Greenwood,
em-paneled a jury and visited the
scene of the accident on Mondey, and
gave permission to the parents of the
unfortunate boy to bury the remains.
As Constable D. A McDonald of
Oliver, who was in charge of the
case, was unable to attend the inquest until Wednesday, ft was postponed until that day, in Greenwood.
The jurymen were: Foremon, W. iB.
Fleming; J. C. Henderson, Geo. Ham-
bly, A. D. McKenzie, L. Bryant and E.
J. White. They returned the following verdict:
"That Al red Gausten came to his
death on the 18th day of June at
iBridesvllle at about 3:30 p.m. by being struck by an automobile driven by
W. G. Chahley, and we find that W.
G. Chahley used every reasonable
precaution to avoid an accident.'
The jurors appointed to investigate
the death of Alfred Gausten reeom
mended that there be placed a danger
siren about 100 yards from the rail
way trestle, on the west side of the
said trestle, as they considered it a
dangerous crossing.

There are a great many car owners who delight in putting in their

Ottawa, June 22.—Weather conditions throughout the fruit growing
provinces have been cool and wet, resulting in a backward spring, which
is generally eight to ten deays later
than normal.
June 1st conditions, which are
based entirely on blossom prospects,
indicate a commercial apple crop of
3,767,390 barrels as compared with
2,984,230 barrels or 126 per cent or
1926, or 16 per cent Increase over the
five-year average of 3,279,220 barrels.
There ls no doubt the above figures
will be materially changed once the
fruit set ls known and the June drop
completed, but the present outlook
was never more favorable for a good
crop of apples, especially in the eastern provinces. Other rults promise
to be from fair to good crops. Comparing with 1926 strawberries will be
a larger crop, the increase being made,
up principally in British Columbia,
where there is a larger bearing acreage. Paars are estimated at 60 per
cent in British Columbia and 200 per
cent ln Ontario; cherries, sour and
sweet, are light, being 60 per cent in
British Columbia and 50 per cent in
Ontario; peaches are 85 per cent in
British Columbia and 100 per cent in

commercial apple crop prospects

British Columlbia has experienced
cool, unsettled weather all spring.and
sever frosts from April 18th to the
20th, which has retarded the growth
in the fruit growing sections, with
the result the season is about fifteen
later than normal. It is too early at
this date to forecast dependable estl-
niatjes, as crops change ' so rapidly,
but reports Indicate conditions ' on
June first as follows:
Apples—From present conditions
a commercial crop of 3,149,600 boxes
is expected, which is 80 per cent of
last year when 3,937,080 boxes were
produced In the province. In the
Okanagan valley the crop Is patchy
and present prospects Indicate a crop
85 per cent of last year. . Orchards
are reported fairly clean and free
from most insect pests. All points
report a sufficient supply o irrigation
water. In the Vermon district Jonathans are heavy, Rome Beauty fair,
Wealthy equal to last year and Mcintosh showing about 20 per cent decrease. Summerland expects 25 per
cent decrease, while Penticton estimates a crop equal to 1926, with Mcintosh and Newtowns heavy and Jonathans light.
Pears—Present Indications are for
a light crop of pears, being estimated
at 60 per cent of last year. Kelowna
reports the crop to be 75 per cent,
and Vernon equal to last year.
Strawberries—The berry crop in
this province promises to equal last
year's yield per acre, but the Increase
In acreage from 1225 in 1926 to 2042
acres in 1927, which in an Increase
of 817 acres, Indicates a yield of approximately 4,402,400 quarts. Strawberry root weevil Is reported as bo-
fug severe In some districts and
might have an effect upon reducing
ihe crop before harvesting is completed.
Loganberries—This crop will be
much lighter owing to frost Injury to
canes, being estimated at 65 per cent
of 1926, which should yield approximately 8682 four-biiHket crates for
fresh fruit shipments.
Cherries—This crop is reported as
being light in all districts and is estimated at 60 per cent of 1926, or 42,200
bushels. On the basts ot commercial
shipments, this should yield 102,667
packages as compared with 171,111
last year.
Apricots-This crop was affected
by the frost damage during -trpril and
Is estnmated to be 93,706 packages,
or 75 per cent of last season's crop,
when 125,022 packages were shipped.
This would amount to 37,500 bushels
as compared with 50,000 bushels last
Peaches—This crop Is reported at
SiununerlSBd to be 85 per cent, Penticton 50 per cent, Peachland 75 per

Thirty-six years after the death of Sir John A. Macdonald, the first premier of Conferation, the following lines
from Punch, written after his -passing, must strike a responsive note in every Canadian heart:

Hail to the chieftain; he lies mute today,
But fame stil  speaks for him and shall for aye,

But death comes not with mere surcease of breath
TofflUch' as him.   "The road to dusty death"
Not "all his yesterdays" have lighted."   Nay,    .
Canada s "Old Tomorrow" lives today
In unforgetting hearts, and nothln fears
The long tomorrow of the ooming years.

world-wide organization.

A circular bank of high power vacuum tubes, capable
of delivering 2,000,000 watts o power, ls the final amplifier hrough which the voice of a person telephoning by
wire ess from New York is forced throgh the ether over

the bank carry gallons of ice-cold water to the base of
the tubes, thereby preventing tubes from melting under
the tremendous heat generated.

The bamboo is a hollow reed which may grow a few feet
high or a hundred. Sometimes its stem is round, sometimes square, and the square kind is very useful for ladders or scaffolding. All sorts of things, massive or delicate, are made from the stems*. Houses are built of them,
and they make water pipes and ships' masts, beds and
tables, prison cages for criminals, handles for agrlcul-
tura implements, penholders, umbrellas and rods for bad
boysl The young roots make good food, and so do the
seeds, which may be cooked as rice or used for a beverage, while the leaves can be used for thatching or weaving into clothes or mats. Verily, few things do so many
hings for man.

vodka, but she had no idea where he got his supplies.
On being interviewed, the woodman made the amazing
statement that he dug Uie meat from the ground! The
inspector accompanied the woodman to a pjace in the
forest where, sure y enough, was buried a gigantic carcass. It was sound, fresh meat, evidently kept from decomposition by the cold. The site was excavated and
the carcass was found to be that of a gigantic mammoth
of prehistoric times, and with a baby mammoth almost
as big as an elephant of today. Except for the hole in
the back of the adult animal from which the woodman
had dug his "steaks," both carcasses were whole and
perfect. lEntomibed by some primeval catastrophe, the
two carcasses had been preserved by the Arctic cold for
nearly 20,000 years.

A Chicago manufacturer has perfected a machine that
can produce 4000 prints an hour or 32,000 a day. Although
the machine was designed especially for the rapid-fire
production of prints for newspapers and similar photographic service, it is adaptable to the use of firms making
a specialty of developing and printing pictures tor amateurs. Not only does the machine expose photographic
prints at remarkable speed, giving to each the varying
intensity and duration of light required, but lt develops,
rinses, fixes and washes them, counts them out and sorts
them with agsolute accuracy and prints descriptive matter on the backs. All this ls a continuous operation,
which resembles ln a way the action of a printing press,
and in which the negatives, contained ln a rame, correspond to the type. The sensitized photographic paper
is led into contact with the negatives from a huge roU
much as print paper is brought Into contact with Uie
type casting in a cylinder press.
The American west coast cities lead ln suicides in' proportion to population. San Diego ls first with 45.2 per
100,000; San Francisco has 37.8; Los Angeles Silt* Oakland 29.0; Seattle 28; Tacoma 17.4. The blgh rate may
be attributed to the fact that many of the inhabitants
actually belong elsewhere and have come west when
health or business failed back home.

The furrow System of irrigation is

"Ilie two main faults to this, system
as used by the average man are, first,
the furrows of. laterals are too long;
and secondly, they are spaced too far
The laterals should be from 200 to

feet apart This will ensure a rapid
and even distribution of the water.
Many   farmers   turn the water on

accounts for great loaa of water, as

mistake. The ground should be cultivated before irrigation to loosen itj
