Provincial GoveromentUrges
a Vigorous Fight Against
Tbeir Spread
Victoria, B. C, June 27,1913.
Editor Orand Forks Sun: l> would
be obliged if you would kindly
allow me, tbrough the columns of
your paper, to call the attention ot
farmers throughout the province to
the necessity of conducting a vigorous campaign against the spread
of noxious weeds in the province.
This constitutes a grave menace to
the development of agriculture, and
it it very essential that a determined effort be made at the present
time to combat the evil before it
gets too big to handle. It is deplorable to see in many good agricultural districts in the province the
alarming extent to wbich the Canadian thistle has spread. This is
one of tbe very worst weeds io existence, and probably tbe hardest
to control.
Tbe following course of treatment
fur tbe eradication of Canada
thistle is recommended by the Seed
Commissioner's branch of tbe federal department of agriculture:
Being a deep-rooted perennial,
Canada thistle abould be ploughed
deep in summer just aa tbe flowere
open, or the flowering sttms may be
mowed down and tbe land ploughed
at toon as the new growth appears.
At new stems are thrown up tbey
must be out off with a broad-sheared
cultivator at intervals during the
Bummer and autumn. Deep ploughing in tbe autumn has been found
Useful in suppressing thistles in
Manitoba. The chief safeguard
against Canada thistle and similar
deep-rooted perennials iB undoubtedly a regular short rotation of
crops, with thorough cultivation. A
three-year rotation, including two
cuttings of early red clover for the
flrst year, followed by deep fall
ploughing for hoed crops, with clean
cultivation and a cereal crop for tbe
third will suppress it.    .
For permanent pastures and wild
lands where this course of treatment
ia not feasible, a plan whicb is followed by many w th great success
is lo keep the plants cut off right at
the crown and never allow tbem to
flower. This course, if pursued
faithfully, will in a few yeara' time
destroy this pest,
All provincial constables and fire
wardens have again this year been
appointed agents fnr the department
in Ihe enforcement of tbe provisions of the Noxious weed act, and
have bean instructed in cas° nf noncompliance wilh notices served on
owners to inatitute prosecutions.
This in its self, however, ia not all
that is necessary. It ia imperative
that the co-operation of the farmers
themselves be secured. The provisions nf the Noxious weed act are
stringent enough, but its proper enforcement cannot he effected to the
.best advantage unless the farmers
do tbeir share and see that their
neighbors take steps to destroy
weeds before they seed.
I trust, therefore, tbtt we may
have united action along theae lines,
and tbat effective work will be done
this year toward the suppression of
those weeds which are proving such
a menace to successful agricultural
development in different parts of the
province. William E. Scott,
Deputy Minister of Agriculture.    '

Rules Laid Down by the Department of Agriculture for the
. Extermination of This FruitPest
By W. H. BRITTAIN, B.S.A., Pathologist and Entomologist
The fire or pear blight has been
known for many years as a serious
disease of tipples, pears, and occasionally quinceB. Lately the dis.
ease has been reported as attacking
plums and apricots. In some districts the disease haB wiped out
whole pear orchards' and caused
.more loss'to the fruit growers than
'all other factors combined.. In
British Columbia it has proved a
verv serious disease of the apple.
Besides the trees mentioned, the
hawthorn (Crataegus), the June
berry (Amelanchier), tnd the mountain aeh(PyrUB) may also be attacked.
The fire blight is of bacterial
origin. Tbe organism causing it iB
a small rod shaped body, measuring
about 1-16,000 of an inch long and
about 1-45,000 of an inch wide.
This germ commonly enters tbe
plant by way of the blossoms, where
it multiplies in tbe nectaries of tbe
flowers and filially extends into the
nearby twigs and leaves. It may
enter growing sboote, li-nbs or trunk
through the agency of various infect
pests. Having once gained admittance to the plant, the bactillus, if
conditions are favorable, multiplies
rapidly, feeding upon and destroying tbe cells of tbe inner bark and
cambium. It winters over in the
form of "holdover" cankers on the
limbs or trunk of affected trees.
As a rule the disease makes its
first appearance in the form of
"blossom blight." The tips, blossoms and leaves will be seen to wilt,
becoming dark brown or black, and
filially shrivel up, presenting a
scorched appearance. The bark at
first has a dark water soaked look,
hut later it becomes hard and dry.
In the twigs and smaller branches
the disease is known aa "twig
blight." Water sprouts and other
young rapidly growing shoots are
particularly liable to attack. Wbere
tbe disease is active blisters will appear on tbe bark, tbrough wbich
will ooze a thick gummy substance,
light ysllow in color at first, but
hardening in the air it becomes
dark red or brown. The leaves
borne oo tuch tboots have tbe
characteristic scorched appearance.
In many cases the disease is confined to the twig form and spreads
no further.
Frequently, however, it enters the
main limbs or trunk hy passing
down twigs or water sprouts. The
bark will take on the water soaked
appearance and the gummy exudate
ooze from the affected part in large
drops. Sometimes a canker of limited extent is formed around tbe
base of the shoot, down which the
dieeaae has passed. As the organism
gradually dies out the bark loses ils
water-soaked appearance, and, becoming hard and tough, shrinks
away from healthy portion, frequently forming a crack or fissure
between. In the apparently sound
tissue outside this area a few germs
may lurk to carry over the disease
until another year. A further
spread of the disease down the
limbs or truck, however, may sometimes occur,    Extenaivt cankered
cracks in tbe diseased   tissue the i and other jnsects, which carry the
yellow gum will drip abundantly, disease from flower tn flower during
Sometimes  a  canker   will appear
considerably further down on the
limb than any other; while the bark
between is, to all external appear
ancts,   perfectly    healthy,     Upon
cutting away .the bark, however, a
fine line of diseased tissue will be
found •connecting tbe- two. The
f ii in of the disease that affects nuin
limbs and trunk is called "body
In most of the fruit growing
regions of the east body blight of
the apple rarely occurs, and then
only in the form of cankers around
the base of a shoot. In some districts it is not considered worth
wbile to cut out the disease in apple
trees during the growing season, so
rarely does it extend beyond tbe
current season's growth. In those
same districts the body blight may
be a serious menace to pear orchards, bo tbat wbile twig blight may
be found in pears and body blight
in apples, the reverse is the rule.
In some parts of the western states
and in' British Columbia, however,
body blight is commonly found
upon all apple trees Certain varieties have suffered most severely
from this form of tbe disease. Some
cases have come under our observation in which tbe disease spread so
rapidly down the trunk tbat the
tree was soon girdled and its death
accomplished in a single season.
A rot of the immature and occasionally of tbe mature fruit is also
caused by Ihe pear blight organism,
tbo disease entering by way of the
stem or through an insect puncture.
Fruit so affected turns brown or
black as if bruised, and a whitish,
slimy substance oozes tbrough the
It is a fact of common observation that a considerable variation
exists in the degree of susceptibility
of the different varieties to the
blight. In the Summerland district
during tbe paet seaton tbe Spitzenberg showed the highest percentage
of infection—about 50 per cent.*
The disease waa most severe in this
variety, rapidly paasiug down from
the smaller shoots into the main
limbs and trunk. Following close
upon the Spitzenbergs came Wagen-
ers and Transcendent crabs, which
were attacked in much the same
manner. Jonathans showed'about
2S percent infection, hut the disease
in this variety waa for the most part
confined to tbe twigs and smaller
branches, very few being so badly
attacked aa to call for removal.
Practically all varieties were attacked
more or less. Those showing a degree of resistance nearest approaching immunity were Mcintosh Red,
Grimes Golden and Yellow Newtown.
In the peart the disease was confined almost entirely to Bartletts.
Quince trees were practically all attacked, but twig infection only was

spread of the blight are bees, wasps

the blossoming period. More tm
portant than the lieee, for it seems
impossible In exercise any control
over their work, is the green apple
aphis. Aside from the great harm
this ii.sect undoubtedly does ny
sucking the juices of the plant, it is
one of the must fruitful sources for
the spread of lhe blight. A large
proportion of twig infection can he
traced directly to its agency. The
apple leafhopper and tbe woolly
apple aphis doubtless bear a share
in this work as well The gummy
exudate that oozes from diseased
bark is swarming with tbe germs of
the blight; and insects, becoming
contaminated trom this source, carry
the disease to other trees, which in
turn hecome infected In Ontario
tbe fruit bark beetle (Scalytus rugu
losus) lias beeu shown to be an important agent in introducing the
blight into tbe trunks of pear trees,
The use of infected pruning tools
has more than once been responsible
for spreading the blight over a whole
The work of various investigators
hae shown that fire blight is a con
trollable disease. If the following
directions are faithfully followed
from tbe start uo alarm need be occasioned by its appearauce in any
Immediately tbe disease appears
the affected limb should be removed,
tbe distance to cut out being governed by the rapidity with which
the disease is progressing. At least
a foot below tbe visible signs ot disease is none too much, and even
more may be necessary. Immediate
cutting out iB essential, for once tbe
disease has gained entrance to the
trunk or main limbs, it is often next
to impossible to save tbe tree. Where
the disease has formed a canker
around tbe base of a shoot tbe bark
abould be cut away for at least four
or five inches below tbe diseased
area. All cutting tools used sbould
be thoroughly disinfected after each
cut by dipping or swabbing with
some good disinfectant. Corosive
sublimate, 1 1,000, is excellent for
this purpose, and formalin, one pint
diluted to three gallons of water, is
also most satisfactory. The cut surfaces of the wood should also be
swabbed with the disinfectant, and
large wounds painted over with a
mixture of oil and lead to prevent
tbe entrance of wound parasites.
All prunings from diseased trees
ehould be gathered and burned at
Ihe time of cutting.
Aa new infections may be continually taking place, it is not possible to control the disease entirely
by this treatment. It is necessary
to go carefully over the trees for at
least three times after thc leaves
bave fallen and cutaway all blighted
parts. To detect all cases of the
disease where it is no longer active
is not always easy. The darker
colored and withered condition of
diseased bark is usually, a good indication. Where a "hold-over"
canker bas been formed this can be
detected by the color tnd by the
crack that usually forms around it.
With Partial Display, Grand
Forks Wins Second Prize
at Calgary Fair
Fred Clark, president of the board
of trade, yesterdiv received a telegram from the gentleman in charge
nf the Grand Forks displav at the
I'algary fair, stating that thn exhibit
bad been awarded second prize in
the district display competition.
Only a email portion of the exhibit
sent from bere arrived in Calgary in
time for the fair. Tbe shipment forwarded by freight has gone astray,
and a tracer has been sent after il.
Had the entire shipment reached its
destination, this district would have
captured first'prize witb ease.
John Nicelson, a middle aged
mau apparently of an unbalanced
mentality, arrived in the city on
Wednesday from Priest Kiver, Ida.
He was deported yesterday by Immigration inspector P. T. McCallum.
As the suckers, which are often
found at the base of a tree, are
favorable channels for the entrance
of the disease into the trunk, they
should, as a meaaure of precaution,
be removed in those districts wbere
the disease occurs. A war of extermination should be carried on
against aphides and leafboppers,
wbich should never be allowed to
become numerous. Spray with
black leaf 40 or black leaf as often
as is necessary to bold tbem well in
Clean cultivation and irrigation
are often practiced to excess in our
orchards. Tbis tends to produce an
abnormally large and sappy growth
of the tree, a condition ihat favors
the rapid development of the pear
blight germ. If the disease is carried to sucb treeB it tin'ls ideal conditions to grow and multiply, and
naturally proves more serious than
would otherwise be the case Something that will check tbe growth of
the tree will therefore be of aervice
in hindering the growth of the organism. Wbere the blight is present
in an orchard it ia well to lessen the
amount of cultivation and irrigation at ftr as possible without injuring the trees. .Cover crops sbould
be planted, and the grower, if otber
conditions permit, may even find it
advisable to put his orchard in sod
for a time. This will not, of course,
prevent his trees from being attacked, nor will it kill out the disease. It will only check its rapid
development in the treeB. The
other remedies must not be neglected, however, but religiously followed if the disease is to be stamped
1. Cut out disease ae it appears.
2. Carefully examine trees and
cut out cankers after the leaves have
3. Gather and burn all prunings
from diseased trees.
' 4. Disinfect  tools  tnd cut surfaces of wood.
5. Keep aphides tnd other insects
in control.
6. Endeavor to check t too rapid
and sappy growth of the treet. THE STIX. GRAND FORKS, BRITISH COLUMBIA.

Largest Commercial Switchboard In |
Canada Installed at Montreal
The Bell. Telephone Company lias
just completed the installation of a
new switchboard at the C.P.R. Windsor street station af Montreal, which I
is the largest commercial switchboard
in Canada with a capacity of twelve
hundred lines. The telephone room
Is situated ln the old tower and is
well lighted and ventilated, and of
such a size that if it is necessary at
any future time to extend the swltch-
.board, ample room for such extension
is provided. Iu arranging this Important department the company has
had the comfort of the operators in
mind and a special rest room hus been
prepared immediately above the operating room. This is furnished with
easy chairs, sofas and reading and
writing materials and everything lias
been done to make their quarters comfortable and home like. The new
switchboard Is what is known as the
No. 4 Lamp Signal Multiple board, and
has a great many Improvements which
were lacking in the old one, such us
lamp signals, audible busy tests and
lamp disconnect signals. At the present time it lakes eight operators td
handle the business and has an ultimate capacity for ten positions. The
board has been divided into two sections -the lirst four handling the originating business and the other four
the Incoming business. Bach position consists of two paneU making
.sixteen for the whole board. At the
moment the bpard is wired for five
hundred local lines and one hundred
trunk lines, the limit capacity as stated being twelve hundred lines and one
hundred and sixty trunk lines. There
are two hundred and twenty local lines
ln use and fifty trunk lines which will
shortly be Increased by fifty and forty
respectively. During one day a total of 7,180 calls were handled, an average of 900 calls per operator' per

Coaling at Nagasaki'
Coaling at Nagasaki, Japan, is done
entirely by girls. Big coal barges
bear down upon the ship as lt approaches the sbore, and as soon as it
comes to anchor a rough ladder is
placed between the liner and the foremost barge.
On each rung of It a girl takes her
place. Men ln the barge quickly
shovel the coal into shallow baskets
holding half a bushel each, to tbe
sound ot a monotonous chant-, and
these baskets then pass from hand
to hand up the living ladder with marvellous celerity.
Each girl seli-ss one and swings lt
straight up ln front ot her above her
head, when it is caught by tbe next
girl. Down a second ladder, likewise
paoked with girls, the empty baskets
pass in similar manner back into the
barge to be refilled.
Etirge after barge is emptied in this
way. The monotonous chanting never ceases; the living elevator goes on
hour after hour with its never-ending
stream ot baskets, until the last bunker Is full, when the ladders disappear
as tf by magic and the ship ls ready
to proceed on ber voyage.

Not exactly sick—but not feeling
quite well. That is the way most
people feel in the spring. Easily tired, appetite 'Jckle, sometimes headaches, and a feeling of depression.
Pimples or eruptions ma;- appear on

Do not dose yourself with purgatives, as, so many people do, in tbe
hope tbat you can put your blood
right. Purgatives gallop through
the system and weaken instead of giving strength. Any doctor will' tell
you this Is true. What yeu need In
spring la a tonic tbat will make new
blood and build up the nerves. Dr.
Wllllams",P!nk Pills is the only medicine that can do this speedily, safely and surely. Every doae of this
medicine makes new blood which
clears the skin, strengthens the appetite and makes tired, depressed men,
women aud children bright, active and
strong. Mrs. Maude Bagg, Lemberg,
Sask., says: "I can unhesitatingly re-
commet-d Dr. Williams" Pink Pltls as
a blood builder and tonic. I waa veiy

Thought It was Poetry
A celebrated journalist onoe concluded an Important artlol. with a
carefully composed sad, eloquent peroration. To hts dismay, however, a
printer's Idiosyncrasy cauaed this
peroration to appear to the world cut
up Into separate lines, and posing as
a poetical quotation.
The irate journaiiat, conscious that
aome of hia best work had been spoiled, rushed wildly Into the editor's
sanctum and pointing to the printed
muddle, excitedly exclaimed—
Look here at thia. See what that
fiendish printer has done. He hat
ruined—utterly ruined—my work.
The editor, with that serene composure and affability which ls so characteristic of his race, listened quietly
to a recital of the printer's crimes,
and then gravely arose.
I will see justice done, my good fellow, he murmured; and then, armed
with a copy of the paper, strode Into
the composing-room.
Jenkins, did you set up this?
A compositor of the good old school
came forward.
Yes, sir, that ls some ot my work.
And very fine work it is, too, ex
claimed tbe   editor.   Do   you   know
that this ls aome of Mr. S 's finest
prose, and you have been thick-headed enough to aet It up for poetry?
Prose, la lt, air? muttered the com-
posltor. Well, I looked at that passage, and I read It for'ards, and I
read lt back'ards, and I read tt likewise upside down, but I couldn't make
head nor tail -nor common sense out
ot It. so I thought lt must bo poetry
and printed lt aa auch.

How Concrete
Work Was Made

wtiafectery concrete war*
UNTIL a lew yean ago faimtrs considered concrete a rather
mysterious material, that could be used successfully only by
experts. They knew that upon the quality of the cement
depended much of die success of concrete work. They had no
means of testing cement, such as big contractors employ, and to could
not be sure of its quality.
Yet the farmer needed concrete. '
He -was kept from wing ihis best and most economical of materials by
1. Lack of knowledge of how to mix and place concrete.
2. Lack of a brand of cement upon the quality of which h*
could absolutely rely.
Canada Cement
hat supplied both these requirements.
We employed men to make a thorough investigation of the fanner's
requirements; lo find out where and how he could uie concrete wilh
profit lo himself; lo discover all problemt he might come across and to
tolve ihem, Thit investigation wat expentive. But when il was
completed we had the material for our campaign lo show lhe farmer
how and where lo uie concrete'and we printed a book, "What the
Fanner Can do Wilh Concrete," for free distribution. That book
make* every fanner who reads it a concrete expert, as far as his needs
are concerned. He finds lhal there is nothing mysterious about concrete—that a few timple rules supply all lhe knowledge required.
Afthe tame time we met the farmers' tecond objection—inability lo
test the quality of cement—by producing cement of a quility that
does not need to be tested.

A Story of the French Revolution
The t.vriiuiij- ot the Icings or France,
supported us liiey were by tlio nobles,
I'liliiiiniited during the relgu.of Loult
XV. Under his und previous reigns
the people endured oppression. Under
bis successor they turned like hunted
animals and swept away botb tbe monarchy and the nubility. In Ihe earl;
pnrt of tbo reign of Louis XVI. tbe latter were still disposed to treat Ibe people as beasts created to administer to
the comfort and tbe pleasure of ths
aristocratic class. In tbe latter part of
tbe same reign centuries of cruelty
were expatiated.
While the storm was gathering and
th* nobles, accustomed as tbey had
long been to the obedience of tb* common people, could not tblnk of tbem
wltb fear, a bunting party sallied
forth from tbe. chateau of tb* Marquis
le Chantallaln* and proceeded to

It wss tb* season for game, wblcb waa

years old, accosted blm:
"Here, boy! Csrry tbls gun and bag

"And wby should I do Uut?" asked
tbe boy.- —
"Wby sbould you do that? Well,

by asking sucb s question?"
"1 mean tbut 1 see no more reason
wby I should carry your load than that
you sbould carry uilue."
Tbe mnn beld a wblp ln bis band to

youngster as no better tban a dog, undertook to enforce obedience, cutting

"Wby did you do that, Beaufort?" be
"Because tbe young dog was first Impudent to me and tben struck me.

But tbe other did not go on. He remained with tbe boy, wbo was badly

death for awhile, then began to mend

reported bts condition to Count Marl-

went to Tarls to tbank bis benefactor.
He found him sn officer under the government and an Influential man.
Ten years mora passed before the

to rid France of her oppressor*. When
