Sowing the Seed.—As soon as the
land can be prepared in the spring
tbe seed should be sown. Tbe distance between the rows will depend
Fomewhat upon tbe variety grown,
but for i r inary purposes tbe seed
• lould be sown in rows 14 or 15
inohes apart and covered about £
inoh deep. -Wbere the horse cultivator is to be used. or wbere irrigation is practised,'it is advisable to
plant two rows close together, about
1(1 inches apart,, and the next two
rows far enough apart fur Ihe horse
cultivator to work,, about-24 to 26
inohes. If the soil is rich and in
good condition, about 3J lbs. see 1
per acre is sufficient; but if the soil
is not extra rich, or if tbere is dan-
ger of much lots from depredations
of the cutworm or onion-maggot,
more, than tbia amount should be
used. More seed than is necessary
should not be used, as Ihe work pf
thinning onions on a large scale is
rather an expensive operation. It iB
important to bave the seed sown in
straight rows. Crcoked rowe are not
onljr harder -o cultivate, but are always an eyesore.
Cultivation and Weeding.— Cultivation sbould begin as soon as tbe
rows can be determined. If it is
necessary to run the wbeel-boe be
fore the onions are up, you can gen
erally see tbe mark' left by tbe roller
of the Beed-drill. Tbe ground sbould
be stirred frequently by means of
the wbeel-boe, wb ch straddles tbe
row of ouions, leaving only about
IJ inches wide to weed by hand. It
i< always desirable to stir the surface
of the ground as soon as possible
after a rain, to prevent the forma
tion of a crust on lbe surface. Tbe
weeds in between tbe plants in tbe
rows can be pulled when necessary.
Iljbe wheel hoe is carefully, used
tbe expense , nf band weeding is
lessened considerably. In cultivating onions the earth should be boed
away (jinn, rather than to'vards, lbe
plants. H^
■ Thinning.—Ahout tbe time of lbe
second weeding by hand the onions
should lie thinned to about I inch
apart in the rows. Wbere the climate and soil are favorable for tbe
growing of onions, there is no need
of thinning more than thiB. Onions
have the quality of crowding out to
the sides, so thnt Ihey may grow
el s. together and still be of good
Irrigation.—When irrigation is
practised, care should be taken not
to apply too mucb water. Wheh the
plants are in need of water apply in alternate rows, giving the
(ttiiwid a fair soaking, and then shut
<>(f i he water, so tbat tbe sun can do
its part. Cultivation should follow
eaoh irrigation as soon as tbe soil is
dry enough. *
Harvesting.—If the onion-topB do low 15 deg. Fabr.
not all fall down Hat on the ground ing and thawing or severe   freezing
at the proper time about the middle- will injur* the bulbs,
of August to middle of September, it     The second   method of  storing
is good practice to go over the patch onions is perhaps the safest  wbere
and pound tht upright ones down, i
Harvesting should commence as
soon as most of the necks have
turned yellow and are considerably
wilted. Do not delay harvesting
simply because there may be some
green tops when tbe main crop is
ready. II left too long the bulb's
are liable to make new roots, especially if the weather is damp, and
the quality ol tbe onion is injured.
Pull the onions by hand and... deposit them in windrows containing
the onions from three or four rows
If tbey are taken out with rakes
they Are apt to be bruised, and thus
will not keep as well: The crop is
left in the windrows until fully
cured, wbich takes about "ten days
in good weather. During this time
they sbould be topped with knives,
cutting tbe tops off about \ i ich
from tbe bulb. On bright days the
curing will be hastened liy stirring
with a wooden rake, being'careful
i ot to bruise the bulbs. If there is
dinger of a rainy season, the onions
may be cured iu open sheds or on
the baru-floor. After the crop is
cured the bulbs should be sorted and
properly stored.
All weeds and refuse should be
removed from the field, and, if possible, a fall crop grown.
Marketing.—Onions should be
sold as Boon as a fair price ean l>e
obtained, and not stored for tbe
winter unless tbere is very good
chance of a rise. If you have an extra favorable season, tbey may be
shipped right from tb* Beld, but it
is generally advisable to empty tbem
out in open sheds and pick them
over again., All' tbe email onions
should be picked out and sold sepa
rately for pickling purposes.
Winter Storing.—It is not advisable for tbe inexperienced grower to
try winter storing. Unless thoroughly cured, many bulbs will sprout,
while others with only a slight
bruise will deciy. Tbere will be
more or less shrinkage, and a large
percentage of tbe onions will be lost
f if proper tare is not given to ventilating and maintaining the desired
temperature. However, it ie desir
able that growers should understand
tbe conditions necessary to keep
onions tbrough tbe winter months,
so tbat tbey might store part of
iheir crop. I would not advise storing very many unless one has extra
good facilities for doing bo. Itis
essential that the bulbs should be
well matured, thoroughly cured,
not bruised, and in a perfectly dor
maul slate for successful winter
Onions may be wintered by Iwo
different processes—namely, by
freezing tbe bulbs and keeping them
in this condition all winter, or hy
storing them in a dry apartment
where tbe temperature can be maintained just above tbe freezing point.
, The former method is very satisfactory wbere the weather is cold
during the entire winter. The
onions are placed in a barn or out-
building and allowed to freeze. Tbey
are then covered with hay, straw,
or bags, and allowed to remain in
tbis frozen state all winter. Tbe
covering should not be removed in
the spring until the bulbs are entirely thawed out. The temperature
should not run above 32 deg. or be-

Many Orchards Are Being
Planted—Total in Valley, .2,350 Acres.   .
According to satistics gathered by
W. A, Cooper,' 441 acres are being
planted to fiuit trees in the Kettle
valley thit spring. It is safe to say
that Mr. Cooler haa missed u sufficient
number of small planters to bring the
acreage fur the season up to five hundred. Last spring the orchards in
the valley covered IS50 acres uf land,
and by adding the 500 acre, being
planted this spring, it will be found
that the total orchard acreage in the
irome liate vicinity of Grand Forks ia
2350 acres. The following is a list of
those wbo are planting new orchards,
or increasing their old ones, together
the acreage ami the names uf the va
rieties euch urchardi.il is planting:

Pipi in, Ontar.o
one has a good, dry^easily ventil
ated building. Tbe bulbs are laid
out on shelves, and thus can be
picked over occasionally. The tern
perature should be kept above the
freezing point.
As onions can not be fed to stock,
it is not well to bave too many on
hand in the spring.
Enemies of the Onion.—The most
impertant enemies of the onion are
tbe onion maggot, onion smut, and
Tbe onion maggot is a very destructive insect. The eggs are de-
I o ited in the plants near lhe ground
and. require about two wteks to
hatch. After tbe egg hatches the
la vie burrow into the bulb, where
they remain for about two weeks,
tben emerge, pupate in tbt ground,
and tbe adult insects deposit tbeir
ejgs for another generation. The
a vie cause the plants to turn yellow in ci lor, wiih r, and finally die
before the bulbs are matij ed. The
only f-atis.actury preventive n.eisu e
known yet is thn planting on a new
location each year.
The onion smut attacks the young
plants, causing the formation of
dark spots or lines on the leaves. As
the onion seedling develops, these
spots crack open, exposing a black
powdery mass which contains the
spores of the fungus. The disea.e
when very severe causes the tops to
wither and die, and then often
spreads to the bulbs As a preventive, all tbe refuse on tbe field should
be burned immediately after' the
crop has been barveBted: Adherence to a strict system of crop rotation is the most practical preventive
against this disease A mixture of
equal parts of sulphur and lime,
sown in the drills wilh the seed, is
very good.

Russia Planning to Spend Hilf a Billion Dollar* on   Railroads
It Is now beginning to be taken for
granted that outer Mongolia, with its
1.000,000 square miles ot territory and
Its 3,000,000 of people, is to be added
to tbe Russian sphere ot influence.
Ever since the war wltb Japan,
,Russla has been' devoting ber energies
to the expansion ot Siberia. This vast
territory stretching from the Ural
Mountains to the Pacific Ocean, was
once looked on as the dreary land of
the exile. Today It Is the promised
land of the emigrant. There is room
for many millions. -,*
Siberia, with an area of 4,817,087
square miles, haB at present a population of only 8,220,100. There are vast
stretches ot rich, black earth awaiting the farmer. Coal, Iron, silver and
gold are ready for the pioneer. Huge
forests have ln readiness great wooden harvests.
Some day Siberia must play a great
part in the production of the "world's
food. At present the cultivated part
la a mere patch on its huge area, yet
It produces 170,000,000 poods of cereals a year, a pood being equal lo
36 pounds. Its Immense coal deposits" have scarcely been touched, and
the same is tbe case with its timber.
In the Amur and Maritime Provinces
tbere are 509,000,000 acres ot forest
The railroad la naturally what Is
looked for for the development of tbls
great country. The first great
achievement in this direction was the
construction ot tbe Siberian Railroad.
This has cost more than' £140,000,000,
and stretches from Moscow to Vladivostok, 6,527 miles, all on Russia territory except the last strip across
Manchuria. It Is now proposed to
double track and Improve lt at an estimated cost of £22,000,000.
' Other Russian schemes contemplate
the opening up of Southern Siberia
by a line from Orsk through Orenburg
to Semlpalatinsl. and Barnaul to the
railway at Taiga at a cost of £18,000,-
000; the linking up of St. Petersburg
by a direct Mm to the Siberian railway, hitherto approached only by
Moscow, at a cost of £.9,000,000; the
Amur line connecting tbe Siberian
Railroad with the eastern coast round
the north ot Manchuria, making It
possible to travel from east to west
entirely In Russian territory, at a cost
of £31,000,000, and finally a branch
line from east of Lake Baikal to Kaih-
kta through the Great Desert In Mongolia, through Urge, and eventually
on to Pekin, at a cost of £15,000.000.
This gives a total in round figures,
of £95,000,000, which Russia is planning to spend on thc opening up of
her eastern Empire.
Their Daring Plan ef Evading Excisemen'* Trap.
A daring feat was accomplished by
a band of smugglers on the main road
running from Belgium Into Llllle when
excise ollicers got wind of a plan to
ran a large consignment ot contraband
tobacco In a motor car. The smugglers' plan was to cross the frontier
near Roubalx and follow the main
road to Llllle.
The captain of the Llllle excise station had the loading of the car secretly watched and arranged for word to
he sent to him the night the smugglers departed. A message came one
afternoon that the dash would be
made that night.
After dark the captain took thirty
excisemen and laid an ambush for
the smugglers and a Btout steel rope
was stretched across the main road.
After lying In wait a long time the
excisemen heard the hum of a car
travelling at a great rate tbrough the
Two ollicers stood about 100 yards
' from where the cable was stretched
and cried out, "Halt! We are Customs officers." Instead of stopping
the driver increased his speed, and
the car plunged forward until Its headlight showed the gleaming steel cable
In Its path.
- With a shout of triumph the excisemen had sprung from their hiding
place, wben, without diminishing bis
apeed, the driver of the contraband
tar gave a sharp turn of the wheel
lo tbe left and deliberately put tho
vehicle on to the metals of l.e light
railway running alongside the road.
Although a train was but 100 yards
behind blm, the chauffeur never
flinched, and the car after a terrific
jolting, regained tthe road. Once the
ambush was passed the car vanished Into the night.—London Dally Mail.

Left Weak, Miserable and Prey to
Disease In Many Forms.'
One of the most treacherous diseases afflicting the people of Canada
during the winter months is la
grippe, or influenza. It almost In-'
variably ends witb a complication of
troubles. It. tortures its victims with
alternate fever- and chills, headaches
and backaches. It leaves him an easy
prey to pneumonia, bronchitis, and
even consumption. Indeed thc deadly
after-effects of la grippe may leave
the victim a chronic Invalid. You can
avoid la grippe entirely by keeping
the blood rich and red by an occasional use of Dr. Williams' Pink" Pills. If
you have not done this and the disease attacks you, you cau banish its
deadly after-effects through the use
of this same great blood-building,
nerve-restoring medicine. Here Is
proof ot the wonderful power ot Dr.
Williams' Pluk Pills over this trouble.
Mr. Emmanuel Laurtn. St. Jerome,
Quo., says: "I "was seized with a severe attack of la grippe. I was obliged to stop work and remain iu my
bed tor several weeks, and while I
appeared to get over the flrst stages
of the trouble, I did not regain my
usual health. I suffered trom headaches, loss of appetite and extreme
weakness. I did not sleep well at
nights, and wonld arise In the morning feeling tirec* and worn out. This
continued for about two months during which time I .was taking treatment, but apparently without avail.
Then I was advised to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, aud I got a balf
dozen boxes. By.the time 1 had
taken three boxes there was a decided Improvement, and actually before
I had completed the Blxtli box I was
enjoying my old-time health. I was
strong as ever, could sleep well and
eat well, and no longer suffered from
lassitude and headaches. I have proved the value ot Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills for the pernicious after-effects
of la grippe, and' can therefore recommend them tfi other sufferers."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure by
going to the root of the trouble In
the blood, which they enrich, and
make red, and pure. These pills cure
all troubles due to bad blood, and It
you are ailing you should start to
cure yourself today by taking this
great medicine. Sold by all medicine

THERE'S no mistaking the expression of a man whose farm ii well "improved."
He looks as prosperous at he fttU.
It isn't the size of a place that counts most, nor ils actual dollars-and-cents
value.   It's rather that "well-kept," thrifty appearance; Ihe appearance tbat makes
you think of fat stock, and well-filled barns, and comfortable, contented living.
- Neat, permanent improvements go further In giving a farm this appearance than
any other feature.
Concrete Is The Ideal Material
for auch Improvements. It Is neat, harmonising with IU surroundings ln tha country.
Everlasting, It Cannot be Injured by Are, frost, wind or lightning. Age—Instead of
causing It to decay—actually makes It stronger. -
Concrete never needs repair—flrst cost Is last cost. Naw Improvements can be added
year after year with leas expense than would be required to keep wooden structures
In repair.
Concrete walks.'feeding floors, dairy-barns, ice-houses, root •cellars, well-curbing,
fence posts, alios—which of these doea your farm need most? Whatever you want to
build, it'a best to build It of concrete.
Do you want to know moro about this subject of permanent farm Improvements?

Thu wreck of the Tilantic last
.Sunday night, in which it is estimated that nearly fifteen hundred
people wen'drowned, is the greatest
marine disaster in Ibe history of the
world The vast number of persons
who (ierished makes I lie tragedy appalling, and the sympathy of every
i-ivilizi-d nation has heun tendereil
the friends end relatives of those
who sunk to the bottom nf the sea
with  the huge vessel.    While the
accident has horrified the world,
both on account of the great loss
of life and the prominence of some
of the victims, yet there are thousands of catastrophes yearly in all
parts of the world which involve
greater suffering than death by
drowning. There is no reason to
question the sincerity of the grief
into which tbe people of two continents have been cast by the accident, but the reflection that the
vehemence of the outspoken sorrow
is greatly accentuated by the. vast
number of lives suddenly entitled
out, is always present in one's mind.
It is the magnitude of the disaster
that stuns the world. When people
ure maimed and mangled in railway wrecks, roasted and charred in
iiies, crushed or suffocated in mines,
hut little heed is paid to the tears of
their relatives, unless they are sufficiently numerous to command attention.

the building of railway branch lines
to excess, and tbat the inevitable
time for reflection is bound to come.

It is reported that contracts have
been let for an additional twenty live

line west of Carmi.
We have a safe, dependab'e, and
altogether ideal remedy that is particularly adapted to Ihe requirements
of aged people and persons of weak
constitutions who suffer from constipation or other bowel disorders. VVe
are so certain that it will relieve these
complaints and give absolute satisfaction in every particular that we offer
it with our personal guarantee that it
shall cost the user nothing if it fails
to substantiate oui- claim. This remedy is called Rexall Orderlies.
Rexall Orderlies are eaten just like
candy, ure particularly prompt and
agrerable in action, may be taken at
any time, day or night; do not cause
iliairhu'i., nausea, griping, excessive
looseness,'or other undesirable effects.
They have a very mild but positive
action upon the organs with which
they come in contact, apparently act
ing as a regulative tonic upon the relaxed muscular coat of the bowel, thus
overcoming weakness, and aiding to
restore the bowels to a more vigorous
and healthy activity Three sizes,

In the great and wide Toronto lived a woman fair,
She had a living husband, though she knew not where.
Young  she  was for such a sorrow, little more than twenty years;
Her lot had been a hard one—oft her eyes were bathed in tears.
Hut tomorrow all were going from tbe Massey-Harris works,
Down to see the great Niagara, and the splendid fire-works:
Two train-loads of living people, going to spend a gala day
Where the sound of rushing waters with thefauid would have full sway
What a pleasure! all were saying, what a splendid time! . <
The train bells will be ringing, whi'e the whistles spoil the chime;
The boys will take their sweethearts, all in bright array—
Oh, tomorrow will be joyful; for the children, such a day !
And the weary little woman—Mary we will call her now —
Noted all the preparations.     Must she to God'swill bow?
"She would like just such an outing, if she only dare—
Such a day of pleasure it had never been her iot to share.
Her lot had not been easy—just one constant grind:
Often feeling keenly the sword-edged tongue of womankind.
But her conscience was not easy—"you must not go there,"
And,the devil elauiored loudly, "Jack will pav the fare."
To her lonely couch she crept, nor woke till early dawn,
When the light streamed in through a curtain slightly drawn.
But before her sleep was ended she had dreamed a dream
Of a ship upon the waters, tossing roughly,  it did seem
And her fnther stood beside her, stood upon the deck,
Watched the foaming, seething billows, with no fear of wn-
Then the scene is changed to glory—stormy seas all past,
And her father leads her ever to a pla-e of  rest
On her father leads, holds her firmly by the hand,
laeaals her on to scenes of glory—such are not in any land—
Where great trees of shining petals, colors unseen here,
Seemed to flourish in abundance.    Oh! what peace was there!
Eye hath not seen such beauty, nor heart felt so serene.
Tongue can not express the grandeur of that celestial scene.
The untold joy, the unspeakable peace uf it all
Seemed to stay with Mary, and rest within her soul.
So at the dawn of morning, when the light was peeping in,
It found poor Mary weeping, in thankfulness to Hiin,
That God should take such cars'of her, who might fall,
And tend a messenger in time to prove He cared for all.
She went to her daily work, nor heeded what was said;
The taunts of her lady mistress passed simply overhead.
She quietly did her duty, leaving tha rest to Him,
Believing that true worth meant keeping from sin.
So the days passed over, and brighter days did come,
And though in future days of trouble she had some,
She never forgot the time when she was near a fall,
And God in iii* great mercy showed his love for all.

This lo qui- now modet "Double Bail Gong Plow." Evory -,
farmer who brdere one of theso Plows Is asked to take- It out In
the .Held-and test it. Wo expect him to compare Its .work with
that of any other high-grade Plow, and wo -leave our Plow - to
to apeak for Itself. Ten daya of this.kind of tost under actual
working conditions ought to bring out the good points, or tho bad
polnta of any Plow-After working our Plow for ten days, If
nny farmer thinks ho Is not getting a thoroughly good Plow,
and at a prleo that eaves Iilm money, we don't want him to keep
tt. If lie says he would rather return It, we will take the Plow
-off his Imnds, will give him baek tho purchase price in full; and
will pay the freight both ways nn the'returned Plow.
This is the KATON way of doing business—an absolutely

Wo aro particularly anxious that every farmer mould know

A Living Can be Made From
the Land While Trees Are
Coming Into Bearing
The growing of crops between orchard trees until they reach productive
age is one of importance not only to
the individual fruit grower, but" to the
economic stability of the fruit industry as a whole. A few years ago, a lack
of knowledge as tu the successful marketing of these inter-crops, such as
. small fruits and vegetable, together
with a wave of enthusiasm for absolutely clean cultivation of orchards,
discouraged this practice. There has
recently been a change in both re
spechi. A great iiioreas* in the available market, and the discovery that
carload production was an essential to
success with main-crop vegetables, together with experimental proof that
eareful men oould grow inter crops
with financial success and without
injury to tbe trees, have materially
altered the situation.
There are, however, certain requisites to success. The soil must be deep,
in good physical condition, fertile,
and be possessed of adequate moisture.
A soil in condition to support only the
growth of the trees can not carry both
trees and inter-crop without injury to
the former. A first step is to get the
soil in proper condition by the use of
cover crops or barnyard manure.
The climate must also be suitable.
Wealthy apples thrive, and attain
the best results in districts where tomatoes and corn ean be frown successfully. Early vegetables are successful only where they can be produced
in time for their market. Some non-
irrigated districts are so dry in the
summer time that many inter-crops
requiring a large amount of moietbre
suffer or fail. These pointa all require
local study.
. The third important requisite to
success, and perhaps tie mo t important, ia the market. Co-operative
marketing is almost essential in getting a new district under way. Carload production as mentioned above,
ia often most desirable. Given a oare-
fnl study of lhe on tire situation, suc-
c -ss is reasonably assured.
There is usually a living to be made
from the land while the trees aro coming into Ircaring age. Many erops
whieh will bring good returns can be
grown between the rows of trees,while
tbey are young, but it should always
he remembered that the young trees
are of first importance, and upon their
present health and vigor depends the
future usefulness of the orchard.
' Intercropping ef young orchards is
generally discouraged for the reeson
that the young trees are likely to be
neglected or mi* u<ed aud the soil de-
p'eted of plant food and moisture. It
i'. by injudicious cropping, however,
that voung orchards are often moat
se iously injured. Extra care should
be taken to maintain the fertility of
the soil by the application of manure
and fertilisers.
The growing of light crops is the
means of- keeping the land stirred
when-it might otherwise be neglected,
aud if the glower is careful to see
that the physical condition of the land
is improved, and adds enough plant
food to supply the lou, the light cropping of orchards for the first few years
may be a decided benefit, Tbe danger
is that the fruit grower might continue too lung and expect too much
from it. When the orchard oomes into
bearing, give it the entire land.
In orchards less than twenty-five
feet apart the land should rarely bo
oroppedjnore than three years, hut
apple orchards set thirty feet or more,
may be lightly cropped four or five
years if extra good care is taken.
In irrigated seotions there is a tendency to over-irrigate if there are
inter-crops. This, of course, is detrimental to the trees. Quite often it
makes the trees grow late in the fall
and they are sent into the winter in a
soft and unripened condition. Wheu
inter-crops are grown an open strip
free from erops, should be left on each
side of the row of trees. Ths width
of this strip will vary somewhat according to the kind of crop giown
For an ordinary hoe crop the space
free of crops should be about four feet
on each side of the row of trees the
first year, and this area should be
widened each year as the trees grow
older. This sbould be kept cultivated
regularly throughout the growing
season. The roots of a tree generally
spread farther from the trunk than do
the branches, so that in nocaseshou'd
crops be grown within a foot and ont
half of the line below the outside of
the branches. The drier the land the
lees it ihould be cropped unless irri
gation water is available.
Crop to Grow.—Only annual crops
should be grown in fruit plantations
In general some low-growing crop
whieh demands good tillage and conies
off early is best. Almost any vegeta
ble crop may be grown, but with all
such crops the question of markets
should be carefully considered before
planting any large area. In any section there is always something in the
way of vegetables that can be grown
at a profit. The kind of crop, grown
will also depend largely on the type.of
soil and the location of the orchard.
Grain or hay should never be grown
in-the orchard. They are especially
objectionable becau-e they do nol permit the cultivation of the soil nor
shade it sufficiently te keep it from
baking. Of course, such crops as
wheat, rye, oats, clover, etc., may be,
grown late in the season as cover crops
to plow under, but if grown for grain
or hay it-is to j hard to preserve the
moisture and the physical condition
of the soil ia not improved. A hoed
crop is much more desirable. The
growing of nursery stook in young
orchards shonld be discouraged. This
crop makes the same demands upon
the soil as the orchard itself,and it does
not allow the variations in cultivation
and management which are possible
when different crops are grown. Nursery stock is known to be particularly
hard on land, so much so that nurserymen seldom grow two crops of
nursery stock in succession on the
same area.
Potatoes may be mentioned as a
crop well adapted to grow in young
orchards. It is a staple commodity
and is often shipped across the continent, but in order to do this the district must produce a sufficient quantity to ship in carload lots. If early
potatoes are grown a cover crop of rye
or wheat, or sometimes clover, may be
planted after the potatoes are harvested. Potatoes thrive best on the
light or medium soils, but occasionally
heavier soils are found that are adapted to the crop.   Potatoes require the
Under the above caption tbe Vancouver San says, editorially:
"Tbe Boundary country, which
for many yeara was the theater of
active mining operations, and where
some of the largest mines in British
Columbia are situated, is now rapidly coming to tbe front us an agricultural district. Perhaps, it would be
better to say a -horticultural rather
than au agricultural district, because,
while tbe soil and the climate are
admirably adapted to all kinds of
farming operations, the fruit produced tbere is of a quality, if not
superior lo that grown in any other
part of British Columbin., at least
equal to that produced in the oldest
and most thoroughly tested It tea I it i s
of the province. While"" all inaiiuei
of fruits of a semi-tropical variety
can be grown to perfection almost,
it is found tbat the best paying va
riety ig the apple and, accordingly,
the farmers in that valley are pay
ing great attention and achieving re
murkahle success in   tbis direction.
"According to a dispatch received
from Grand Forks yeBterday, the
ranchers up there are now engaged
in planting 446 acres in apple trees.
Tbe ' area already allotted to tbis
fruit is computed at 14G0 acres, ez
elusive of 500 acres under cultivation
by tbe Doukhobor colony settled
tbere by Peter Veregin. Accordingly, tbe total orchard area in the
Grand Forks valley will, by the end
of this summer, amount to 2346
acres. Tbat means progress; it
means eventual prosperity because
the cultivation of fruit has no limits
in British Columbia regarded from
a profit making standpoint. And
with the success whicb tbe fruit
growers in the Urand Forks valley
are bound to achieve, we shall find
settlers following their example in
the far reaching and fertile country
to the eastward. Indeed, before
many years bave passed by we may
take it for granted tbat a great proportion of that extensive region lying between the Gold and tbe Hope
mountains will present the spectacle
of a continuous orchard.
''The assurance of success from
fruit growing in British Columbia is
given by tbe rapid settlement of tbe
great prairie country, wdo-e prosperous population will make ever increasing demands upon the fruit
harvests of British Columbia. At tbe
present time it is true, the British
Columbia fruit grower is placed at a
disadvantage as compared with tbe
fruit grower in Washington and
Oregon—be is placed at a disadvantage with these foreign producers
even in our own Canadian middle
west. Tbe reason for this is tbat as
yet be has not been able to secure as
good transportation terms as the
United States producer enjoys and
be has not evolved a system of band-
liug and shipping bis harvest to his
own best advantage as in the case on
the other side of the boundary  line.
Rut all these drawbacks will gradu-
a ly disappear. The railways will,
eventually, realize that it is to their
benefit to afford every facility for
the interchange of commodities between British Columbia and the
prairie country, and the fruit gapw-
ers themselves will take example by
their southern neighbors in systematizing ther business and may excel
them in that respect.
"The Canadian middle wesl must
be the market fer British Columbia
fruit. It is impossible that it should
be etherwise, and it will remain the
market for the fruit of tbis province.
It will, too, be a market which will
absorb all thnt we can produce for
export and whicb will pay us the
highest price for what we sell. Accordingly, fruit growing in British
Columbia is bound to become an industry' which more and more will
obtain the favor nf those cultivating
the soil. It is, perhaps, the easiest
form ot funning as it is undoubtedly
the most interesting, and we can not
but be convinced if we look ut it
from the. proper standpoint that it
va'ill he the most profitable."

Deadly Moving Pictures
Among tho latest news dispatches
from the little town of Hilltville, in
Virginia, whieh has achieved such unenviable notoriety from the shooting
in the courthouse of the judge and
two other officers at the trial ef Floyd
Allen, is that the first moving picture
machine ever seen in that country
was on hand to record tbe entrance
into the town of Sidna Edwards in
custody of bis two captors. It is easy
to imagine the rest. All the other
scenes uf the tragedy will be re-euact-
ed on the spot for the purpose of securing films, and in those,when shown,
the small buy in the audienie will
single out the men handy with guns
ae the heroes, and another crop of
youths will think it great to toto guns
and be noted bad men. While these
pictures themaalvea are merely a record of history, the notoriety that
some papers have given the characters
is so indistinguishable from fame that
the pictures are of the most deadly
nature that can be exhibited, and
should be stopped at the border.—
