APPLES TO GROW
Opinion of the Secretary of
Kootenay Fruit Growers'
Association
Gives a Number of Requirements He Thinks Should
Be Filled
Roy C. Brook, secretary of tho
Kootenay Fruit Growers association,
in an interview with a Daily News
reporter on the question of what
varieties to plant in this district,
names the following list:
"I wish it to be thoroughly understood that in suggesting a list of the
best varieties of apples, as I promised to give upon my introduction to
this district, I am not recommending these varieties as the ones for
ranchers to plant. They are the
oneB that fill the following requirements, when in tho territories with
which I am familiar, i.e., the Cox
Orange Pippin, commands the
highest prices in the English
market and seems to grow admiro
bly here. The Yellow Newton and
Winesap command the highest
prices in nearly every market in the
world, and are not decreasing in
favor. Both make good treeB, medium early in hearing and annual
fruit is long keeping and may be
successfully stored, or if desired.may
be readily sold as soon as picked,
and in localities growing them havi
proved the most profitable, year ii
and year out, apples of all varietie-
grown. The Red Cheek Pippin and
Rome Beauty, while classified »s
No. 8 in the list have proved enormous yielders, not bringing as much
per box, because they arc not no
high grade, but yielding ahout the
same per acre as the Winesaps.
They make early trees ofthe willowy
type, bear large fruit, aioself-pollen-
izing and are prolific in pollen,
whicli adds to their value as compared with other varieties. Northern
Spy was placed in the So. 8 class
because it is so slow in coining into
bearing and thereby in its earlier
history cannot he classed as one of
the most profitable to grow. The
Northern Spy requires the pollen of
some late blooming variety, and at
present I am unable to state an
affinity for it. When properly matured it has command of a large
market ut high prices. [Intil I have
time to study it here 1 would
not be justified in Baying more. All
of the above varieties are fust class
stocks for grafting, and should the
necessity for changing Ihem come
about, they would accommodate
nearly anything desired.
"Wegener and Jonathan are prolific bearers, self-pol lenders and
command a pretty extensive market
in the interior countries at high
prices. They both begin bearing
early and heavily. Neither of them
are up to the standard for keeping,
though the Wagener is the belter of
the two Of the eight varieties
named, these are the least desirable
lo plant, bb they make poor stocks
for grafting, being slow growers.
"Of the early fall apples, the Gra-
enstein and the Wealthy are unquestionably  in   a  class by them
selves, still I cannot hut discourage
the growing of either. Too many
persons are taking up these varieties. They can never become anything more than a local trade apple,
and very soon they will be available
a hundred times the quantity required for loeal consumption. One
British Columbia nurseryman has
already stated that 75 per cent of his
orders for apple trees have been for
Wealthy antl Gravenstein. Think
what that means. Neither apple
will keep long enough. Since my
arrival in Kootenay I have heard it
said that many early varieties are
good keepers when grown hereabouts. I fear that our good people
do not understand what is meant by
'good keapers.' Good keeping apples, commercially speaking, are
the ones that if ono hundred packed
boxes were stored away for a given
time and then opened up, practically none of the fruit should be decayed or beginning to decay. Just
because you may have put a dozen
boxes of Wealthy apples away in
your cellar and DO per cent of them
have kept, it does not necessarily
follow that they arc to be classified
commercially as keeping until January. So don't make a mistake
with the earlier varieties. Repacking
is very expensive work, and buyers
do not invest in anything for holding
nr long shipping that is not a certainty. I may be wrong of my estimate of your Wealthies and Gra-
vensteins, but fear that many of our
growers will discover too late that I
am nearly right.
"My own attitude on the variety
question iB simply this: Plant few
varieties in order to give them un
livided and intensive attention.
Why plant any but the best priced,
strongest growing, annual bearing,
ingest keeping and grcateBt de-
iiiniided varieties? Why not make
tli.'se conditions your standard and
come as near filling all the requirements us possible without sacrificing
loo much to any one requirement
and thereby establish a precedent
for yield per tree, per acre and to
the poeketbooki"
Subject to the above conditions
Mr. Brock gives the following classes
in order of preference by thc markets generally, the Cox Orange, of
course, being an English apple almost entirely.
Class 1—Cox Orange Pippin.
CliiBd 2—Ycllew Newton Pippin
(needs pollenizlng), Ben Davis,
Winesap—not Stayman (self-pollen-
izing).
Class 3—Rome Beauty (self pol*
lenizer), Red Cheek Pippin (self-
pnlleuizer), Northern Spy (needs
pollen— some very late variety, possibly Rome Beauty J.
Class 4—Wagener and Jonathan,
both self-pollcni/.ers.

Delegates Elected
A meeting of the Grand Forks
Liberal association was held in the
office of the president in the Johnson block last Tuesday evening for
the purpose of electing delegates to
attend the nominating convention of Yale-Cariboo riding, which
will be held in Vernon on the 14th
inet. The following delegates were
chosen: H. W. Gegory, Neil McCallum, P. T. McCallum, Geo. Rutherford, E. C. Henniger, B. Lequime,
D. D. Munro and Geo. Murphy.
The delegates were instructed to
support the sitting member, Mr.
Duncan Ross, of Greenwood.
Banquet Discloses Fact That
a Chemical Phenomenon
Has Occurred
A prominent banker of this city
made a friendly visit to his former
home in I'lioenix on St. Patrick's
day. The old boys in that cnmp
were so glad to Bee him that they
presented him with a little grey jug
of Irish whiskey, sealed with green
ribbons and ornamented with a prodigality of shainrocka. The financier
treasured the gift very highly,nnd he
brought the jug, unsealed, to this
city; deposited it in an unused
corner of the bank, where it rested
until a few days ago, the envy of
many longing glances. It took the
banker two weeks to decide how to
dispose of the contents of the jug in
a fitting manner. He did not wish
to consume it by himself—that
would show a lack of appreciation
for the gift. Some public display
must be made. At last he decided
to give a select dinner, at which tin
little grey jug was to be the piece (le
resistance in the liquid refreshment
line, at The Yale to a few ot his 1110*1
intimate friends in this city. The
dinner party assembled at tbe hotel
a few nignts ago. The banquet
board was spread. The guests seated
themselves to a regal repast. In the
centre of the table was the little grey
jug, dressed in its handsomest suit
of green. Many eyes around that
table were of the same color with
jealousy because they had no jugs of
their own. After ample justice hail
been done to the savory viands, the
chairman announced a toast *to thc
guest of honor—"Tho Little Grey
Jug." The seal was broken at lust
Everybody held their breath with
expectancy as the contents of the
jug gurgled through, its narrow neck
into the guests' glasses. Thestillne.-s
was both oppressive and expressive
—it was broken only by the oc< a-
siomil rustling of the notes of tbe
Phoenix scribe, who was present to
chronicle the fact that in the llights
of oratory during the evening the
donors of the precious fluid were
tendered adequate homage. Suddenly the gurgling ceased; the contents of the jug sparkled uml foamed
in the glasses. As the guests ruse to
their feet to drain the glasses, everybody smacked their lips in anticipation of the fact that the moment
of supreme delight was nt hand.
The Umstmastcr said, "To the Little
Grey Jug." The guests repented
the words, lifted the glasses to their
lips, and drained them. The change
in the expression of their faces was
instantaneous. The I-won't-go-
home-till-morning smile gave way
to one of inexpressible disgust and
loathing. The glasses descended on
the tabic with such violence that the
people in the next block Imagined
they heard an alarm of fire. The I
banker, his face blanched with rage,
viewed with alarm the unmistakable
signs in the countenaces of his guests
of  a  brewing  storm.    When   the
/
elements of rage and disappointment
were about to burst over his unprotected head, he rushed frantically
from the table in search of a long-
Id stance phone. When ut lust he
got connection with his Phoenix
friend.-, he expressed a desire to
know whnt in hades they meant by
presenting him with a jug of cold
tea labeled Irish whiskey. It bus
since hecn reported lhat the language he used over the phone during the next two hours melted the
wires of the long-distance line between this city and Phoenix, and
that this incident is the true cause
of the recent buoyancy in the copper market. Whether the bunker
was really presented with a jug of
cold tea, or whether the contents,
by some unaccountable chemical
metamorphosis were changed while
it rested in the bank in this eity,
has not yet been definitely established.
Killed by Falling Tree
Last Wednesday Ed Spooner and
the four Bradbury brothers were
cutting wood close to the Phoenix
road, just outside the eity limits of
Greenwood. A falling thiee glanced
back and pinned Richard Bradbury
between it and a stamp, killing him
almost instantly. After viewing the
"cone of the accident, Coroner Black
did not deem nil inquest necessary.
Deceased was 23 years old and came
from England three years ago.

Mahan, both of this city, were married at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Haivey Mahan,

bride and groom are well known in

A Pathetic Tale of a Young
Man and His Best Sunday Girl
A true tale concerning the new
proprietary medicine, Tulip salve,
is being circulated locally, and it is
of a sufficiently humorous nature to
hurl at the outside world. A young
bank clerk has recently been suffering from an aggravated form of sore
lips. Wednesday—April 1—he
was bemoaning his sad fate to his
confreres in the financial institution.
They recommended Twolip salve
very highly for his ailment, and
told him to run over to the drug
store for some. The clerk thought
they said Tulip, and forthwith acted
on their suggestion. He had read
somewhere glowing descriptions of
thc healing virtues of the essence of
that fragrant flower, and as he
walked briskly toward the apothecary's shop, his nostrils, in absent-
minded imagination, had already
begun to inhale ttie aromatic fragrance of the lovely tulip. The
druggist was taken by surprise, and
staggered backwards a few paces on
being asked for the salve. It was a
lucky stagger, because in elevating
his head his eyes happened to fall on
a calendar. The situation was saved,
and the comedy was carried io its
natural and inevitable conclusion.
The druggist politely informed the
embryotie Napoleon of finance that
they were just out ot Tulip salve, but
he felt certain it could be obtained
across the street at Mr. Itter's bookstore. This is the establishment in
which the bank clerk's best Sunday
sweetheart is employed as clerk.
When tho young man walked into
the store and, with a prayer-meeting
face, asked her for two bits worth of
Tulip salve, the girl sought refuge by
swooning—a favorite expedient of
all females with overwrought nerves.
During the hubbub that ensued
while frantic ell'orts to resuscitate tho
girl wero in progress, the banker
deemed a precipitous retreat the better part of valor and escaped to his
lair on Bridge street. It was a wise
move on his part, as the store was
full nf women at the time, and if the
true facts of the Incident hud been
eiiiiiiniiuicated lo them berore he
got out of the store they might have
smothered hiin witli Tulip salve, as
two bits wm tli uf that commodity
is said to go a lung ways, tin being
interviewed last night, the young
bunker said lie could assign no
plausible etiusc as to tbe fainting of
thc girl, lie admitted, however,
Unit possibly his question might
have been a little abrupt, and that
his countenance exhibited some impatience for the goods, as his lips
were in a deplorable condition.
Thc young girl lias now fully recovered from her fainting spell, but
thc only safe way in whioh to order
Tulip salvo from her is to use the
telephone.

RANDOM REMARKS
FRIDAY, APRIL 3, 1908
The political situation in Yale-Cariboo, in respect to candidates in the
next Dominion election, appears to
be pretty clearly defined. It is almost
a certainty that the sitting member,
Mr. Duncan Ross, will be renomi
nated by thc Liberals at their convention in Vernon on the 14th inst.
Ab to whom the the Conservatives
will name on the 23rd there is still
a slight element of doubt, however.
During the past week repeated efforts have been made to induce Mr.
Martin Burrell, of this city, to accept
the nomination, but it is understood
that he is quite firm in his refusal
to allow his name to go before the
convention. In view of this fact,
the next man most talktd of in connection with the nomination is the
present member for Okanagan in the
local house, Price ElliBon, and it
would surprise no one in this neighborhood if that gentleman should
be selected to lead a forlorn hope.
The All-Red Line, whicli is favored by the Ottawa government,
will place Canada on the thoroughfare between England and theOrient
and Australasia, instead of on a
side street.

No President Yet Elected of
the Dominion Copper
Company
Development Work on a Number of Hardy Mountain
Properties
The last issue of the Boston News
Bureau says: "No action has yet
been taken towards electing a president o£ the Dominion Copper company to succeed Warner Miller, resigned. H. II- Melville, who is the
active member of the board, is expected from Europe within two
weeks, and it is probable that a
president will be decided upon
shortly after his return. The minis
and   plant  of the Dominion con>
Peter A. Z. Pare resumed doing
assessment work on his Sunset fraction olaim, near the Betts and Hesperus mine, on Hardy mountain,
on Wednesday last. The work will
be done in extending the long tunnel, which has already been driven
a distance of 150 feet, and it is expected that another ten fact will encounter the ledge. Some very rich
assays have been obtained from this
property. The work is being done
by Oscar (iendron and Chas. Nelson.
Capt. Koylston, who lives on
Fourth of July creek, is engaged in
doing development work on his
mineral claim near the Betts and
Hesperus mine. The tunnel is now
twelve feet in a good grade of oro,
and he thinks he will have to go
three farther feet before ho can cross
the ledge.
