Provincial Board of Horticulture Will Maintain a
High Standard
Latest Number of B. G. Gazette Contains Valuable
The provincial board of horticulture
is determined to maintain the high
standard of British Columbia fruit,
and prevent the spread of diseases
that have caused so much loss to the
production of some of the other provinces of the Dominion and states of
The latest number of the Provincial
Gazette contains the following information relative to amendments made by
the board ut its recent meeting:
llule No. 5, relative to the disinfec
tiieii   of   nursery stock, etc., has been
repealed and the following substituted:
"Every person owning   or   occupy
ing,   or   having   in   possession   any
land or orchard   with  standing  trees
or shrubs, or having thereon  nursery
stock, or trees and plants of any kind,
infected with insect pests and  fungus
disease, sha 1 cause the same to be disinfected  and   cleansed  by using the
remedies herein  prescribed,   or   such
other   insecticides   and  fungicides as
may be found effective, and   are   ap
proved by a member of the board or
the   inspector   of   fruit pest:i, and no
such inspected nursery stock, trees or
plants sliall be sold,   forwarded, distributed or parted with until a certiti
cute   uf   the   satisfactory    cleansing
thereof shall have been obtained from
a member of the board  or  his agent,
or tiie inspector of fruit pests.    Such
certificate shall remain  in   force   for
three months from the date of   issue
ui less revoked by further  inspection.
Any mem her of the board, or the in-
s ectur of fruit pests may order thede-
s ruction, by routing  out and   burning, or by any other available method,
of all infected nursery stock, trees, or
pi nits of any kind, wherever after inspection such destruction   by  rooting
out and burning is necessary to   prevent the  continued    existence    or
spreading of any infection, pest or disease, and if any order made hereunder
is nut complied with, and curried out
within the time specified in such order,
after   a   copy of  such urder has been
posted   up   on   or   near the land or
orchard or premises whereon such  older   is   intended   to  take effect, any
member uf the board or  inspector   of
fruit pests may, by himself, his agents,
servants, and workmen, enter into and
ui<on any land,  orchard   or  premises
whereon such order is intended to take
ell'nct, and carry such order into effect
by any available method, anil that the
cost of such wurk shall  be a   charge
against the owner or occupier thereof,
and nu person shall in anywise howsoever hinder or obstruct   the carrying
nto effect uf any such urder."
i    Regulation Nu. *,   relative to   in
speotioil of home grown fruit, was re-
ptaled and the following   substituted:

fruit by such methods as the board or
its agents may direct.    Packages containing   quarantined   fruit   shall   be
marked   with   a   distinctive mark or
brand at the time of  the   inspection
thereof by the inspecting officer.    It
shall be an offence  against the   rules
and regulations of the board of horticulture to deface or remove such mark
or brand."
Regulatirn No. 12 was amended by
striking out so much of the directions
for use of Spray No. 1 as referred
the solid form of same.
Advertising the Province
"British Columbia" iB the title of
a handsome booklet issued by the
advertising department of the Canadian Pacific railway, which contains
about nil the information regarding
the climate and resources of the
province that it is possible to crowd
into a 70-page pamphlet. It is profusely illustrated with scenes of
ciiies, farms, orchards, mines, smelters, sawmills, etc., among them being a good half-tone of Grand Forks.
The following description is given of
our city:
"Grand Forks, situated at the
junction of the main Kettle river
with its north fork, occupies an important position as the gateway to
the Kettle River valley and the center of a rich mining district. A few
years ago it was a ranchers' ford on
the Dewdney trail; today it is a
bustling town of 2600 inhabitants,
with splendid waterworks, electric
light and telephone systems, broad
streets lined with fine business
blocks and comfortable dwellings.
The chief industry of the town is the
Granby smelter, the largest nnd
most complete plant of its kind in
America. This smelter treats from
2500 to 3000 tons of ore daily, producing blister copper 98J per cent
fine. There are many other industrial establishments, including four
sawmills, a foundry, machine shop,
bottling works, etc. The churches,
hospitals, stores and hotels are equal
to those found in any western town.
The merchants enjoy a good trade
drawn from the surrounding district. Close to the town is the Riverside nursery, which has twenty
acres in nursery stock, comprising
more than 200,000 young fruit trees
and seedlings. The Covert ranch,
with over 11,000 fruit trees in bloom
in the early spring, or loaded down
with delicious fruit in the autumn,
is the delight of every visitor to
Grand Forks."

Manure in the Orchard
A very important requisite in tbe
orchard is barnyard manure. Some
rely on the plowing down of clover
crops to provide the necessary humus and maintain the supply of
plant food, but frequent applications
of manure are advisable. It can be
applied at almost any time of 'he
year to advantage. If put on during the winter or early spring, it is
turned under when the land is
plowed, and constant cultivation up
to the time the clover crop is sown
incorporates the application with tho
soil, and tends to hasten its decomposition.
Enrichment must go hand in hand
with cultivation, if best results nre
to be expected. The annual falling
of the leaves and the plowing down
of clover crops, where such are used,
cannot be depended upon to recoup
the soil for what is taken in producing a crop of fruit nnd in adding to
the size of the trees.
The value of wood ashes in an orchard is overlooked on many farms.
Potash is required in liberal supply,
and this is 11 cheap way of supplying the necessary plant food, it is
not sufficient to dump the ashes in
hcups near the trunks of trees. Like
all fertilizers, best resultB can be obtained only by an even application
all over the ground, followed by thorough incorporation with the soil.
The ashes will not take the place of
manure, nor should manure be ap-
p'ied as a substitute for ashes. Both
should be employed. On light lands,
especially, potash in some form!
should be applied in addition to what
is contained in the manure. If ashes
are not available, the commercial j
potash salt, such as sulphate and
muriate, may be substituted.

I am personally interested in the
irrigation of the valley ut Grand
Forks, and am, therefore, justified in
wiiting to you concerning the matter. I am of the opinion that almost
all the valley cun be irrigated without pumping.
I understand that Mr. Brook, the
Dominion geologist, is of the firm
opinion that the North Fork formerly took its course west of Observation mountain, that is, over the
ground now traversed by the Cnnadian Pacific, Great Northern and
Spokane & Pritish Columbia railways on their way towards Smelter
lake, ami that it took its present
course only when its former course
became choked up. He is snid to
have made a calculntion that, if the
smelter dam were made eighteen
feet higher, the water of Smelter lake
would again run west of Observation
I had a talk with Mr. R. A. Henderson, the surveyor, one day on the
shore of Newby lake, and he seemed
to be firmly convinced that the
water of Smelter lake could be mude
to rise high enough to pass over the
old course. He snid this could be
done by making the smeller dam
higher. It would not be necessary,
however, to dig a channel from
Smelter lake. It is quite evident
that there is an underground communication between Smelter lake
and Newby hike, ns the water in
Newby lake rises and falls when the
water in Smelter lake rises and falls.
Newby lake could, therefore, be
filled to the brim and used aa a
reservoir. Any of yonr readers who
will take the trouble to go out to
Newby will see at once that, if the
waters in that lake were raised to the
brim, it would be higher than the
roofs of the highest buildings iu the
business part of Grand Forks, higher
tha n almost every acre of tbe valley
souMi of the Kettle river, and higher
than almost all the laud mirth oi the
Kettle river.
If thc quantity nf water m Smelter were greatly increased, the pressure exerted would bc very great,
but there would be two vents, the
present channel and the underground
channel to Newby lake, through
which tliere would be a constant
movement of water, if the water of
that lake were used for city purposes
ns will as fur Irrigating the fruit land
throughout the valley. Moreover,
Observation mountain would have to
stand lhe main pressure of thc wnt r
iu Smelter lake, and it would do it.

year asked for by the Liberals before
a name can be struck off the voters'

revision, save where the elector consents. The attorney-general's original amendment fixed tne period at
one month in these cnBes where the
elector has ceased to reside in the

The new Province hotel, which
hns been under construction since
last fall, was completed early in the
week, and on thc 1st inst. it opened its
doors to the public. The building is
fiOxTG feet, three storieshigh, with a
basement. The material used is
brick, and thc plastering throughout
the building bus been done with cement, making the walls almost as
durable as if they had been constructed of solid iron or steel. Itisno
exaggeration to sny that the building is one of the best and most substantial structures used for hotel
purposes in the inlerior of the province. The cost of the bare building is about $30,000, and tbe
cost of furnishing the house is estimated to be between #7000 and $10,-
Mr. E. Larsen, the proprietor of
the Province, deserves unstinted
praise and credit for the faith
be has shown in Grand Forks by
erecting so costly and substantial an
hotel. The building wns designed
by Mr. J. B. Henderson, the architect and builder, under wnose superintendence it was constructed. It is nf
such a solid nature that, even should
he accomplishes nothing else in the
building line, it will prove an enduring monument to the proficiency
which he has attained in his profession.
The front of the first floor is composed mainly of plate-glass. The
rooms on this floor, consisting tif an
office, dining room, kitchen, bar and
pool and billiard rooms, are arranged
with a view to attain the greatest
possible convenience. It is difficult
to Bee how their positions could be
improved upon. All the rooms on
this floor are of good size, the din
ing room having a capacity or eighty
persons at one seating.
On the two upper stories there are
fifty-two bedrooms, two parlors antl
a number of linen closets. The majority of the sleeping apartments are
large, well ventilated, and are furnished in elegant style.
The plumbing and electrical fixtures in the building are of the most
modern pattern. Any light, in any

causes belching, dizziness, a feeling of
fullness after eating, nausea, indigestion (like lump of lead in stomach),
biliousness, heartburn, water brash,
pain in stomach and intestfues or
other symptoms.
Headaches from the Btonuch are

Women who suffer with disorders peculiar to their
sex should write to Dr. Pierce and receive free the
advice of a physician of over 40 years' experience
—a skilled and successful specialist in the diseases
of women. Every letter of this sort has the most
careful consideration and is regarded as sacredly
confident...!. Muy sensitively modest women write
fully to Dr. Pierce what they would shrink from
telling to their local physician. The local physician
is pretty sure to say that he cannot do anything
without "an examination." Dr. Pierce holds that
these distasteful examinations are generally needless,  and  that  no woman,  except  in  rare  cases, should  submit  to   them.
Dr. Pierce's treatment will cure you right in the privacy of

Mining on rhe Coast
Recent developments of free milling
gold claims in the vicinity of Moresby
island, in the Queen Charlotte group,
has proved so satisfactory that the
Nulia and Early Bird Mining companies will jointly install a 20-stnmp
mill there early in April. The order
for the plant has heen placed in Germany. A new device, ball-bearing
action is said to be capable of treating
30 tons of rock per day and to secure
a higher percentage of recovery of the
values in connection with the use of a
Willley table. Its adoption in the
Queen Charlotte islands records u new
era in Canadian mining annals.
The Nuba company owns 54 claims
near Gold harbor, Twe.ity men have
been engaged at development worlt
since last fall. A smaller force is engaged on the tmaller adjoining property. Both properties are traversed
by the same vein, which varies in
width from 2h to 8 feet. The ledge
has an enriched portion, 18 inches in
width, giving, it is asserted, high
values. A recent shipment of the
run of the vein treated at the Tacoma
smelter is also said to have netted
815U to the ton.
Rod and Gun
The first sight of the fine cover of
the excellent spring (April) fishing
number of Hod and Gun in Canada,
published by W.J. Taylor,Woodstock,
Out., will stir the blood of the thousands of fishermen throughout the Dominion and start them on the congenial work of preparing for the coining tray. The long and varied nature of the contents of the number, in
whicli fish and fishing topics predominate, will still further stimulate them,
and the opening of the fishing season
will'probably see an increase" in the
angl ers' ranks us one result of the in
terest aroused through the "'ide dissemination of these stories. Three articles stand out as of value to tho
country: "Preserving the Nation's
Fish," by Cyrus McMillan, an illustrated descriptive account of the work
of the Princo Edward Island hatchery;
"The Unsolved Mystery of the Salmon," by Bonnycastle Dale, who has
spent two years on the Pacific coast
studying the ways of the salmon and,
with the exception of one pjint, leaving the mystery still unsolved; and
"Conservation of Non-Nest Building
Fishes of the Great Lukes," by W. E.
Meehan, chief fish commissioner for
Pennsylvania, in which a plea i? put
forward on behalf of a policy on which
there will be great differences of opinion, but which closely concerns the
future of the Great Lakes fisheries.
Then fishing trips in four separate
provinces are told of in a manner irresistibly reminding fishermen of incidents in their own experiences. "A
New Brunswick Lost Lake Found," is
particularly good, though each story
has an interest all its own. A similar
variety of fare will be fou"d for those
interested in other forms of sport, "A
Ladv's Moose Hunt in New Brunswick," hy Miss Emach, being a good
specimen. On every page of an excellent number the sportsman will be
able to find material -» Inch cannot fail
to prove of the deepest possible interest to him.

Said to Be Fine
Few people here know that you
enn cure that dread American disease, rheumatism,with just common,
every-day drugs found in any drug
store. The prescription is so simple
that any one can prepare it at home
at small cost. It is made up ns follows: Get from any good prescription pharmacy Fluid ; Extract Dan
delion, one-half ounce; Compound
Kargon, one ounce; Compound
Syrup Sarsaparilla, three ounces.
Mix by shaking in a bottle and take
in teaspoonful doses after each meal
and at bedtime. These are all simple ingredients, making an absolutely harmless remedy at little
Rheumatism, ns everyone knows,
is a symptom of deranged kidneys.
It is a condition produced by the
fnilure of the kidneys to properly
filter and strain from the blood the
uric ncid and other matter, which, if
not eradicated either in the urine or
through the skin pores, remains in
the blocd, decomposes nnd forms
about the joints and muscles, causing the untold suffering and deformity of rheumatism.
This prescription is said to be a
splendid healing, cleansing nnd invigorating tonic to the kidneys, and
gives almost immediate relief in all
forms of bladder and urinary troubles and backache.
