Control of the Principal Insects by Proper Treatment
For purposes of study and treat*
ment, orchard pests may be divided
into four great classes:
1. Insect pests, such as the aphis,
caterpillars, the oyster-hell bark
louse, and the tent caterpillar.
2. Fungous pests, such as apple
scab, and peach leaf curl.
3. Bacterial diseases, such as pear
4. l'hysiological diseases, such as
cherry-tree gumosis, fruit pit, and
water core.
Insect Pests.—Before destroying
any insect affecting the orchard, three
points sbould'be carefully observed:
1.. Whether it is actually injurious
or beneficial. Many insects, such as
the lady beetles and the svrphus flies,
are of great benefit. Watch closely,
and determine the form of injury.
2. With injurious insects, note the
manner in which the food is absorbed,
particularly whether from the surfece,
or whether by suction from below   it.
3. Decide on the most vulnerable
point in the insect's life history.
For general' purposes of control by
spraying, insects may be divided into
two classes:
First-a-Biting 1 nsects, provided
with biting jaws adapted to chewing
food. These are usually controlled by
covering the plant with a stomach
poison, such as arsenic in a suitable
Second.—Sucking lusects. Are
more difficult to control. They are
provided, with long beaks, with which
they pierce the surfaco. and draw
their food in the form of the plant
juices from below it. There is no way
of reaching them with a stomach
poison, just as a mosquito, which is
one of this class, can not he poisoned
hy Paris green. The aphis and the
various scale insects are our principal
foes in this class Foe sucking insects we, therefore, use a contact in
BBCii.-ide, thut is, one which will
kill the insect hy touching it, either
by li ling up the breathing pores,
which are situated along the side of
the body, as with kerosene emulsion
or by the general caustic action of the
spray, as with lime sulphur. To get re
s ilts with contact insecticides, every
insect nm .toe covered. With stout
ach Insecticides, we spray to cover the
entire surface liable to injury. With
contact insecticides, we spray to cover
every insect.
Most insects have four stages in
the r life histo y:
First—The egg.
Second—The larval, or worm form,
which is the period of growth, and
during whicli most insects tlo their
Third—The pupal form, usually it
resting form, and usually invulnerable
in practice.
Fourth—The adult of perfect form.
In the case of tent caterpillar*, for
instance, the eggs are deposited in the
fall, in a mass surrounding a young
twig, and coated with a waterproof
covering. Tlie winter spray usually
does them little harm. The egga hatch
in the spring, the larva or  caterpillar
growing rapidly on the young leaves.
This is evidently the time to destroy
it with a stomach poison, as it is a
biting insect. The codlin moth ia another example The egg is laid on the
surface of the leaf or fruit, and is not
vulnerable to any practicable spray.
As the young larva hatches out, it
may feed for a few days on the surface
of the leaf, but usually makes its first
meal on the surface of the fruit, gen
enilly in the ealyx end As we have
no means of attacking it unless it has
penetrated the fruit, it is evident that
some stomach poison must be administered with its first meal. This we

Although the work on file for this
year is not so large as Inst year,there
is much of importance to do. A new
steel bridge will be constructed between Cascade' and Grand Forks,
and plans are now being daawn up
for it.
Three bridges not completed last
year are still occupying the attention of tbe engineering department,
one being on the Granby spur, another at Greenwood,and still another
at Cascade. A large fill has yet to
be completed between Tunnel nnd
Coryell, and the hydraulic fill at
Porcupine will be advanced snowier

This will take at least anothir year

Although It Is In No Respect a Cily
of Health—Built Over Swamp.
St. Petersburg, the beautiful nnd
majestic metropolis of Russia, founded by Peter tlie Great, is'constructecl
on a veritable swamp, lt is said that
moisture underlying tlie eity can be
seen sometimes oozing up between
the paving blocks on the Ncvsky
Prospect, a busy thoroughfare. The
city is not only built over water,
which often threatens to inundate it,
b"l it is visited by rain or snow at
least 200 days of the year. The city
is practically surrounded hy water,
fc- swamps abound on twi sides, tlie
sea and the river on another.
At the beginning of lhe building of
St. Petersburg Peter tho Great set
thousands to work, "under compulsion of the knout," to build dykes
and reclaim the land. Everyone,
nobles and peasants alike, haled the
place, all save Peter the Great, who
called the city his "Paradise" and
forbade the use of clone in building
elsewhere in Russia, ordering all the
stone accessible to be brought lo St.
Petersburg. Any peasant who wished
1o enter the city could do po by fetching n cartload of stone. This was his
passport. Indeed, people did not
have to beg to enter St. Petersburg.
They were forced by the Czar's command to abandon other places nnd
come to dwell in his "pet" city. The
consequence was n crowded quarter
where the poor herded together like
e,a many rats, living in squalor and
misery. Even to this da.-, the Russian
metropblis is tlio most unhealthy
capital of Europe.
But, in spite of all drawbacks, St.
Petersburg is a beautiful and majestic city. The Winter Palace is splendid, as are also entire streets of
beautiful buildings. I. might be
called a city of space, for the streets
arc very wide, and nowhere—save in
the slums—does one lind crowding.
Everything seems on a gigantic scale
—cathedrals, public and educational
buildings, art galleries, etc. Beautiful statuary is seen in the public
squares, tlu statue of Peter the Great
being a magnificent monument to the
glory of the ruler who built thc cily

Italy Proves Their Value I . Her War
Against Turkey.
When the prediction was made, not
long ago, that the aeroplane would be
an important factor in future warfare,
it was considered absurd by many of
those who had given special study to
the subject. Why, did not experiments show that the machine could
not be depended upon ? Pshaw I The
enemy could riddle it in less than no
time. Such arguments found favor
with those versed in the science of
war, as well as with others identified
with aviation. The air was full of discussions pro and con when—unexpectedly came the news that Italy was at
war with Turkey and that a fleet, or
flock, of aeroplanes was to be put in
commission over in Tripoli.
Results have fulfilled the prophecy
aiad the flying machine has proven itself a distinct necessity, it was, perhaps, in defensive work that the airman provided the best evidence of his
v«lue. Scouts, noting the enemy's
plans, position and manoeuvres, furnished reports which brought about
severe losses to the Arabs' offensive
movements. As for the aggressive, the
aeroplane has yet to prove its worth.
Bombs dropped by aviators caused
much disorder within the Turkish
ranks, but comparatively little damage. Effective service was rendered by
officers circling above the line of battle, directing the fire of the hig guns
of the battleships, as well as that of
mountain artillery.
France has long been the leader in
aviation, and has gained an advantage
over other nations by early recognition of the value of aeronautics in
warfare, fostered by liberal appropriations by the Government. Fate decreed, however that Italy should have
the advantage, through her war with
Turkey, of being the first to gain
practical experience in utilizing this
new arm of service. But the demonstration will prove of value to all the
While England, Germany, Russia
and Japan have spent considerable
3uma of money in experimenting with
aeroplanes and dirigibles, the United
States has done very little. The army
received a congressional appropriation
last year of $126,000, and has probably a dozen qualified aviators and
less than that many machines. The
navy has also made aome experiments,
including trials ot the hydro-aeroplane, an invention of recent date.
The alow development of flying is not
due to the lack of an appropriation,
or to the lack of aeroplanes, however,
but rather to the lack of officers to
operate them.
Literal Interpretation.
A sneak thief had got into the car
and made off with a fellow traveler's
pocketbook. A greeny, who was evidently on his first trip to the city,
had taken the episode in with a certain amount of relish and, despite
his supposed greenness, apparently
knew more about the identity of the
guilty one than any one present when
the alarm was raised.
He touched the conductor on the
arm and pointed to a man who was
hurrying down the. block for dear life.
"There's the thief," he chuckled
The conductor turned on him
"You fool I If yer saw 'im pick-
in' th' gent's pocket why didn't yer
report 'im 'stead o' lcttin' "m slip off

"That sign up there Beared me," re-
returned the hayseed.
"What sign?"
"Th' one thet sei 'Beware of Pickpockets'."
Admiral'! Retirement.
Rear-Admirai W. O. Storey, who hat

the service in January, 1872, serving
as a midshipman in the Malay Peninsula in 1675-76, for which he has a
medal witli clasp.
Specially promoted to lieutenant in
September, 1882, he served in the
Dryad during tlio operations near
Suakin in 1884, and became commander in .li'ie, 1896.
After filling various positions of importance, he was in April, 1909, appointed to the command of the East-
cm Coastguard district, with headquarters at Harwich. T'.is post he
vacated on October 1 last, a fortnight
after his promotion -to flag rank, at
the same time relinquishing a good
service pension.
Not ai  It Sounded.
Used ss he was to scenes ol turbulence, no doubt even the conductor
would hsve heen shocked had he not
been right on the spot to see what
occasioned the shrill outcry. Ho called out "Eighty-ninth street!" and im-
mediately a startled voice rang out:
"Oh, wait a minute, till I get my

Everybody stood up nnd craned
necks over their neighbors' shoulders.
What they saw was a laundress tugging at a clothes basket which .had

Suffered For Six Years, But Found
Health and New Life in Dodd's Kidney Pills—Warm Praise For Old
Reliable Remedy.
Marie East, Bonaventure Co., Quebec—(Special).—Mr. Peter Bernard,
a prosperous young farmer living near
here, Is spreading the good news that
he has found a complete cure for his
kidney troubles.
"I suffered "for six years from
cramps in the muscles and kidney disease," Mr. Bernard says, "but Dodd's
Kidney.Pills cured me completely.
Yes, I am feeling ao well that I want
other sufferers to know ]ust how easy
it ts to be cured."
It is n good old saying that It is
easy to do anything lf you just know
how. And Mr. Bernard and hundreds
of"other3 are telling you just how to
cure kidney disease. Dodd's Kidney
Pills always cure it. And as kidney
disease Ib the direct cause of rheumatism, lumbago, Bright's disease, heart
disease, pain in the back and urinary
troubles Dodd's Kidney Pills cure
them by removing the cause. If you

Long-Lived Musicians.
A physician with a weakness for
statistics has been studying (Bays the
"Family Doctor") the effect of wind
Instruments on the life of musicians.
The average life of the wind Instrument artist is 6S, that of others Is
02. Thirty-four per cent, of the former category attain 70 yeare. Performers on the flute reach on the average the age of 01, while the haut-
bola executant lives two years longer.
Buglers go two years better, and the
clarionet players lives till he Is 05.
He of the cornet only fails the allotted Bpan by one year. The ophlcleide
artist beats them all. Mis time ot
life is from 75 to 80.

"Ob. that's all right, sir; I really did

"What do you mean by that? You

Some principal orchard insects:

The Lesser Apple Worm,—A
small pinkish larva, similar in general
aspects to that of the codlin moth. It
eats into the apple in much the same
way. Found principally in the Victoria aud Armstrong districts. If serious, spray with arsenate of lead, 2
poinds to 40 gallons of water, jusi
after the blossoms fall.
The Codi.in Moth.—Not found In
Hritish Columbia, The must serious

The spray in u t nod for lesser apple
worm is the most effectual for codlin
moth, and should be followed by an-
ether spraying in ahout ten days,

it is necessary to clear the earth from

FuN'oous Diseases.—While insects

of many prizes at dog snows, the pride of the family and neighborhood,
hns heen stolen, and after many days' absence he escapes one night from
his captor and returns homo on a snowy winter's morning with the rope
which he broke in his struggles for freedom dangling from his collar.
HiB familiar bark brings his little mistress, Marjorie, in the door nud
sbe throwB her arms around her trusty playmate's neck with cries of joy
which bring her mother and brother to the door. "Laddie" is equally
delighted to be "Home Again," nnd answers her welcome by putting his
paws on her shoulder and resting his head against her breast with a little
whine, whicb in his dog language meaiiB—"Where I love is Home."
The sweet-faced young mother, a woman of soft curves, tender eyeB
nnd parted lips—the two glad-eyed children—an eager hoy with hair like
his mother's and the quick gesture of excited boyhood; the warm-hearted
girl with rippling locks, her affectionate arms around the shaggy neck of
the beautiful collie, all go to form a picture thnt Will win u favored place

It was the tenth nf April when she

Ami sailefl fnr New York, with winil

With two thouaand three hundred
anil forty souls in care,
But only seven hundred and forty-
five reached there;
For the fourteenth day. npoii a Sunday night,
She struck against an iceberg they
hail failed to sight.
Hei speed was very great—the iceberg was great, too,
And smashed her like a shell and let
the water through.
Then as she slowly sank   to   rest  he-
neath the wave,
I.ifebnats   were   lowered   thn   ladies'
lives to save
Wireless   messages    were   flashed   to
other ships at sea,
But they were too far  oil' immediate

The men all tlid their best trying to
cheer and save,
While their own hearts were breaking with the effort to be bravo.
At last thc wurk is ended, the lust

And all those hundreds left to put
life preservers on.

The bttiidtnen started playing to   give

"Neaier my God to Thee," this  was
their parting hymn;
"Nearer  my   God   to Thee I" was  it
ever played as then!
And when   they   touched   the   water
they realizrd their dot in,
And one word is uttered   within   the

The one word "God" is wrun^ from  a

It is carried up on high, and o'er  the

When we face the great unknown and

The soul looks to it* maker and turns

When our eyes and mind are closed to

Tlio eyes of the soul are opened   to  a

And sought for find's protection   in

Will help them now to triumph   over
all their fears;
They feel God's angel neur, ami know

Tu relieve the keen-edged suffering iu

But the souls of the wicked,who knew

Oh, Almighty   God, have   mercy  on

And please, our heavenly father, wilt

Full detailed information as to
where these homesteads are, the nature of the soil and the general description ot the country in which they

The pamphlet is beautifully printed
with three-color half tones, the cover

The pamphlet also contains a map
which shows in a general way the location of the homesteads in relation

where entry for homesteads may be
made, is Included, making the pamphlet completo in every way.

The Firtt Thimble
There is a tradition that a Dutch
stlversmith pondered long and silently in the slow-working senses
'/hlch he deemed his brain—a notion
for a trinket, a fallal, for a dignified
lady of Holland. It must be a usefu
trinket, albeit a costly one, meet for
so good a samfrstress as Dame Alixe
Van Itenselaer. When the notion
took definite shape, the thing was
quickly wrought in precious metal by
fingers as deft as the brain was slow,

they would have no opportunity to

A Tonic Medicine Is a Necessity at
This Season.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale
People are an all year round tonic,
blood-builder and nerve-restorer. But
they are especially valuable in the
spring when the system is loaded
with Impurities as a result of the indoor life of the winter months. There
is no other season when the blood is
so much in need of purifying and enriching, and every dose of these pills
helps to make new, rich, red blood.
In the spring one feels weak and
tired—Dr. Williams* Pink Pills give
strength. .In the spring the appetite
is often poor—Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
develop the appetite, tone the stomach and aid weak digestion. It is ln
the spring that poisons in the blood
find an outlet In disfiguring pimples,
eruptions and bolls—Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills speedily clear the skin because they go to the root of the trouble in the blood. In the spring anaemia, rheumatism, indigestion, neural
gla, erysipelas and many other troubles are most persistent because of
poor, weak blood, and lt is at this
time when all nature takes on new
life that the blood most seriously
needs attention. Some people dose
themselves with purgatives at this
season, but these only further weaken
themselves. A purgative merely gallops through the system, emptying
the bowels, but it does not cure anything. On the other hand Dr. William's Pink Pills actually make uew
blood which reaches every nerve and
organ in the body, bringing new
strength, new health and vigor to
weak, easily tired men, women and
children. Try Dr. William's Pink Pllla

.. The Pirn by Which They Were
Carried Prom London
to New York
' One morning while In London on taking up my newspaper after breakfast
to scan the news try eye fell ou a personal wblcb read aa follows:
Wantad.-One varied ln smuggling devices to carry-valuable papers.
Now, it there wns any man wbo
could beat me in methods to pull the
wool over customs officers I would
have been pleased to meet him,
I bad begun my labors by working
tbe hollow boot beei racket; theu I had
a lot of diamonds fixed up In cherries
to ornament a woman's bat and hired a
passenger on tbe ship going over wltb
me to wear lt. She got through all
rlgbt, but came down on me for all tbe
profit or sbe would peach. I made
gome money by having the tiny works
ota lady's watcb put In a chronometer,
tbe space around the wheels nnd pivots
being filled with valuable Jewels. A
.wax tumor on the top of my head was
cut open by a butcherly customs man
and disclosed a big diamond, the profit
on wblcb would bave been $20,000.
The diamond and the profit botb went
by the board. Passing over the Swiss
line Into France, I had a bouquet In
which tbere was $10,000 worth of Geneva watch works. A lady confederate
carried it safely over for me, and sbe
didn't bleed me either, for she didn't
know she carried anything but Sowers.
It occurred to me to get on my feet
•gain by securing, lt possible, this advertised Job; but, tbough I knew ways
and means, I was tbe best known man
In the business to the customs men,
•nd that would make me the worst
msn-fo successfully carry valuable papers, for lt wu evident that tbe owner
wished to get tbem through secretly,
ind all my luggage would be turned
Inside out for smuggled goods. Bolides, the papers mlgbt be bulky, and
lhat would make them hard to get
tbrough.   They   couldn't  be   wound
an Immense property In New Tork.
There were ether persons—the countess' balf brothers snd sister-who were
loterested.. She had recently died, and
her husband was having a big fight
wltb these persons for tbe property.
Bl* case hinged en certain papers
whicb were In London and must be
transmitted to the surrogate's office
In New Tork. Unscrupulous attorneys were acting for tbe American (tattles, wbo knew ot these papers and
that K they conld get possession ot
tbem some 110,000,000 would pus te
their clients. "Now," said Mr. Coils-
more, "can you 'rimmit tbe papers
ssftly? lf yon m "ti will be psW
10 per ceut of tbe count's Inheritance."
"How do you know tbat I will not
turn tbem over to tbe New Xork par
ties for twice tbat?"
■-. "I have-a plan for preventing yeur
doing so."
"Your plan would fail. However, I
can give you a scheme of operations
by which you can work with me. I
shall need a confederate. Xon may
name that confederate."
"I shall reaulre s few carpenter's
tools, wbich I sball take witn me on
the ship, and a tiny pot of paint. I
Buppose from what you have told me
that tbe moment the papers leave youi
vaults the enemy will know It."
"I have been told that we have spies
bere ln this office, and the best London detectives are watching ns."
"Very well, send the papers to tbe
ship ln any way you like and deliver
tbem to tne ln my stateroom, wblcb
you will engage for me. As soon as yoo
bave secured it cable some one you
know ln New Tork to engage lt for the
return trip. This doue, we sball proceed further."
"I will attend to tbe matter at once.
How about your confederate?"
"He may go with me on the trip and
will take the papers from mo ln New,
'But I don't understand the necessity
for tbese details."
'Tbey ore more necessary off my ae-
count than on yours. A long experience enables- me to get these papers
tbrough for you, but tbat experience
makes me a suspicious character. I
sball be searched by lbe customs officers in New Xork. But tbere is tbls
advantage ln your employing me. Likely yonr opponents will get on to tbe
fact of my taking the papers to Amert
ca. It they don't I prefer tbnt yon
sbould see that tbey do. Tbls will
concentrate suspicion on me."
"And insure failure."
It took some time to convince Mr,
Collamore ot the expediency of employing me. In fact, I was obliged to
give bim my whole scheme before he
would do so. When I told blm all he
engaged me at once,
I was given tbe papers In bis office
and went direct to the ship, watched
by several detectives, who remained on
the dock till the ship bad sailed. Once
In my stateroom I took my carpenter's
tools from a satchel, loosened a board
In the floor, put ln the papers and,
putting back tbe board, dabbed a little
paint on it, so that its removal would
not be noticed. To make more sure I
removed the board under tbe berth.
I was conscious ot being watched all
the way over, but I did
"1 WAB arm ths r*?ins is bis orncx
around tbe body like lace, and tbey
couldn't be carried in a false wart on
tbe nose.
I spent a whole day trying to think
np a plan to get these papers tbrough,
providing tor-dangers similar to those
to be met ln a custom bouse, but failed. At 4 o'clock the next morning I
awoke and lay In bed thinking. My
brain always works better at that time
tban any otber. I worked out a scheme
whicb I consider tbe crowning device
of my life.
By 0 o'clock I had mailed a reply
to the ad., and tbe next morning's
post brought me a reply. 1 was invited fo call at the office of s prominent firm of solicitors, I went to the
address at once and was Introduced
Into tbe private ofllco of tbe head of
the firm, Mr. Edward Collamore.
"Now, sir," he said to me, "I am
ready to listen to your fitness for tbe
work ot carrying some legal documents
to New Xork, of wbich any ordinary
messenger would be robbed on the
.way, lt not murdered as well."
I gave him a history of my work in
deceiving customs officers. He was
quite pleased at some of my devices,
especially the carrying of watebworks
in a bouquet, and asked me lt papers
could not be carried in that way. 1
told blm that depended on the person
or persons wbo would try to get possession of them. Ho was sufficiently
Impressed with mmccoinpllshments te
tell me all about the work he needed
- done.

$200 a month till the estate was settled, when I wss to receive a million.
I wu paid the $200 regularly, but
when the final settlement wis made I
wu put off with a beggarly bait million on the ground that after all the
viscount bad been obliged to compromise with tbe American belrs.
However, I am quite comfortable
snd do not need to practice any more
schemes, for I enn get on very well
from the Income 1 enjoy from tbe proceeds of my last venture. I live in
London and am mucb respected,
tbough I am known to be a retired
smuggler. You see, ot late years smuggling bas become fashionable. The
wives pf American millionaires do tbe
principal part of what Is done In tbat
line nud do it on the other side of tbe
big pond. As for the English, they so
dislike our protection system that any
man who can beat an American customs officer is popular among tbem.

Important Bodies In
Judged by practical results the
most important sittings of the House
of Commons are tbose devoted to thc
Committee of Supply and the Committee of Ways and Moans. The functions of Parliament exercised through
these two committees of the whole
House, are also among the oldest, if
not the very oldest, performed by the
representatives of British people assembled in national council. These
functions consist of deciding upon
ways and means by whicli revenue is
to be raised—and that means taxation—and of appropriating that revenue to the public service. Devising
means for raising revenue was about
tin only service the Plantaganet kings
wished the Parliament to perform, but
having gradually established control
over taxation the English House oi
Commons made use of that control to
build up tliat system of constitutional representative, responsible government which Canada has inherited
and so many other countries imitated.
The Committees ot Ways and
Means and of Supply nre, therefore,
foundation stones in our parliamentary systems. Thc former decides the
ways and means—the method of raising the revenue. Tlie latter decides
the amount of money to be granted
the crown, which to-day means the
Government, and the manner in which
this money .shall be spent.
We hear little of the Committee of j
Ways and Means—although it sits a I
number of timet each session—except
when the customs tariff or the excise
tariff is under revision, for these are
the measures under which fully three-
fourths of the federal revenue are
collected. I For instance, this session
there will be very little for the Committee of Woys and Means to do.
The tariffs stand, the method of raising the revenue is on the statute
book. There it stands till changed or
repealed, and under its operation the
revenue flows into tlie federal treasury.
Not so, however, with tlie Committee of Supply to whose sittings nre
devoted probably more tha; one half
of every session. While the revenue
accumulates in the treasury not one
penny of it can be spent by the Government without the authorization of
Parliament; thc only exception being
in the case of emergency arising when
Parliament is not sitting. In case of
such emergency the Government can
use the public funds on the authorization of the Governor-General's warrant, tbe expenditure to be ratified by
Parliament as soon ns it meets.
Supplies are voted by Parliament
for only one year. There must be a
session every year, and eaeh year the
Government must go before Parliament and ask for the money necessary
fo( the carrying on of the public service. Because of theso things the
Committee of Supply sits during n
considerable part of each session.
The basis of thc committee's deliberations is a little blue book of about
one hundred pages, known ns the
Estimates, and which is, or should
be laid before the House of Commons
early in the session so that the members can study tlie work before being
called upon to pass judgment on its
The supplies, as a rule, are voted
in advance, and the estimates now
before the House are for the fiscal
year, which will run from April 1 next
to March 31, 1913. .
The estimates contain a detailed
statement of tho sums required for
the public service for the year, the
items being grouped under the various
departments. The estimates nlso show
the vote for tlie preceding year, so
that comparisons of expenditure can
always be readily made.
The estimates are always accompanied by a message from the Governor-General approving of the expenditure proposed. Measures proposing expenditures or charges upon
the revenue must always be introduced into (he House by a Minister
and accompanied by a message from
the Governor-General recommending
tlie same.

Tbe chestnut bark disease was flrst
recognized as a serious disease ln the
vicinity of New York city In 3004, and
tke first publication regarding :. appeared In 1800. Tbere Is reliable evidence, however, that lt wu present on
Long Island at least as early as 1888.

The bark disease appears ultimately,
to exterminate the chestnut trees in

years ago the financial loss from this

The annual report of the Interior
Department of the Dominion fur tlie
last fiscul year, tabled in the House
of Commons receiRy, calls attention
to tlio fact that tlie total cnsli revenue
from all sources collected by tiie de-
fiartment during tlie year reached the
arge total of $5,093,140. This is nn
increase ol $384,126 over the previous
twelve months. Tlie revenue of the
department ia now fourteen times ns
largo as it was ten years ago.
A corresponding increase is noted
in the number ol homestead entries.
During the year there were 44,479 entries, representing • a total acreage of
7,100,640, which is an increase of 3,000
entries over the previous year, which
had been tlio largest in tlie history ol
the deportment.
Those entries represent a total population ol 107,834 settlers and their
families. It is regard-il us very

total immigration last year can lie

ornamental purposes, which have a
value greatly ln excess of their value
as lumber.
No method of Immunizing Individual
trees against the bark disease ts yet
known, and no method of treating or
curing tbem when once attacked Is
certain ln its results. While this Is
unfortunate from the standpoint of
tbe owner of orchard trees and large
ornamental trees of great Individual
value, no method of dealing with single trees-surgery, medication, spraying, etc.—however successful In itself,
would meet the demands of the present situation. It Is not practicable at
present to apply any Individual method of treatment to forest trees; the Individual tree Is uot worth It and will
not be for many years.
Fortunately, however, there Is a
method of dealing with the situation
which is applicable to the country ns a
whole and which, so far as tested, is
practicable. The disease advance*

thus preventing further spread from
tbese points at least. It Is believed
that this method of attack will prove
practicable and lf carried out on a
large scale will result ultimately Iu

A project is now under way that
will undoubtedly prove a great impetus to the development of the eastern Bection of the Kettle valley. A
number of C. P. R. officials own a
2000-acre tract, of land between Cascade and Laurier. They propose to
subdivide this land into ten- and
fifteen-acre lots, develop it to the
stage ot retdy-made farms, and to
bring out families from the east and
settle them upon it. When this
scheme is consummated Cascade
should become a village of more importance than she possesses at present.

the apple. It is of consequences only
where fall rains are plentiful, in combination with mild weather. It ia
easily prevented by one thorough
spraying in tha fall with double-
strength Bordeaux mixture. It is
treated fully in Bulletin 34 of the de-
pal tment of agriculture.
Brown Rot of the Plum and Cherry.—This disease waa first introduced
into the province about ten or twelve
years ago, and is now a cause of serious loss, especially in the coast dis
tricts. It is dependent on wet weather,
and in dry seasons almost disappears.
Its control is difficult, because uf its
very rapid growth and prolific spore
production. While absolute proven
tion under favorable conditions is impossible with the knowledge we now
have, the following measures give a
reasonable immunity:
1. Prune out the trees to admit air
and sunlight.
2. Collect und destroy all old fruits
on the tree or the ground before spring
3. Spray with lime-sulphur thoroughly just before buds open
4. Spray just after blossoming, and
again when fruit is half grown, with
lime-sulphur diluted 1 to 50.
5. Thin out fruit so that no two
6. Handle carefully to prevent loss
of stems and bruising.
7. Allow fruit to stand over night
in a cool place before packing. Pack
up only perfect fruit, and keep fruit
cool as possible to destination.
Apple Scab.—Apple scab or black
spot is prevalent in most parts of the
province subject to any considerable'
rainfall in spring and early summer
The varieties of the Fameuse family
are most subject. The spores of this
disease are carried over the winter on
the twigs and old leaves. They ger
niinate and spread in the spring,
about the time the blossoms begin to
open.    Remedies:
li Destroy the leaves, by burning
or ploughing under.
2. Prune trees to admit sunlight
and nir.
3. Spray with lime sulphur, 1 lo 9,
before tlie buds open.
4. Spray just before blossoming
with lime sulphur, 1 to 2.5.
5. Spray again, just after tlie blossoms full, with lime-sulphur, 1 to 30.
The second spraying is by far the
most important, and must be very
thorough if resnlts are to he satisfactory.
Bactkiiial Diseases.—Pear Blight.
—Pear blight is at present almost unknown in thc province, the repressive
measures taken by the government to
control it having given most excellent
results. Growers should, however, be
continually on the watch for this disense affecting both pear uud apple
trees, and must be prepared to take
the strictest measures to prevent its
gaining a foothold
Description.—The young shoots and
thin leaves wither und turn black,
looking very much i.s though they had
been scorched by fire. The infection
works down the stem, destroying the
life entirely as far as it goes. Particularly where infection on old bark takes
places, there will ho found small drops
of a sweetish liquid ooiing from the
bark. This liquid contains myriads
of the bacteria causing the disease,
and, as it is attractive to bees and
other insects, these carry the germs
all through tbe orchard, especially to
the blossoms. The nectar in the blossom is a particularly favorable medi
um for innoculution, and from this
follows the form called "twig blight,"
which involves the destruction of
fruit spurs.
Sprayiug is impossible, because the
points of infection cannot be reached
by it. The only remedy whicw has
proven effectual is the cutting out of
the diseased areas, followed by care
ful disinfection of the wound and the
knife or saw. Cuts should be made
from two inches to one foot below the
diseased area, depending on the rapidity of progress being made by the
