CROP CONDITIONS
Eeport Submitted to Minister
of Agriculture-~Damage
Exaggerated
W. E. Scott has submitted the
following to the minister of agriculture:
"I have the honor of herewith
submitting a report on the fruit conditions of the province, as regards
winter injury to the orcnards.
"Altera visit to the principal fruit
growing sections of, the province,
and a careful examination of the
damago done, I have come to the
conclusion that the statements,
which hajve been in circulation from
time to time as to.the amount of injury done, have been greatly exaggerated. Statements of this kind
are very much to be regretted, as
they tend to depieei,ate confidence,
in this, one of our future greatest industries. There have been individual cases, where, owing to exceptional circumstances and local
conditions, severe damage has been
done, but taken as a whole the orchards throughout the districts which
I visited looked extremely healthy
and vigorous.
"The fruit crop is light this year
throughout the province, but this to
a large extent is owing to the heavy
crop of the previous year, and also in
some districts to lute spring frosts.
At Vernon, and district, the orchards look very well, and I should
estimate the loss at not more than
5 per cent. The same applies to
Kelowna, and there also, as at Vernon, the trees look very vigorous and
healthy, and the shortness of the
fruit crop this yeur will, especially
in the case of young orcnards, prove
a direct benefit to the trees by allowing them to make a good wood
growth and formation of fruit spurs
for the coming season.
"At Peachlund the damage has
been somewhat heavier, but at Summerland, where very extensive ureas
have been planted in peaches, damage is extremely small, in a great
many orchards which I visited not
amounting to more thin from 3 to 5
per cent.
"At Penticton and Keremeos the
injury is somewhat heavier,ainount-
ing to about 8 to 10 per cent.
"At Grand Forks the orchards
are looking very well, though in this
Seotion there has been a considerable
amount of harm done to the fruit
on the trees by hail, but this has
been only local and confined to a
small area. The loss in the orchards
will probably amount to 8 per   cent.
"In the Kootenays the damage
there, owing to the larga amount of
snow which was on the ground when
the cold spell came, is very slight
and amounts to practically nothing.
Here and there a dead tree may be
noticed, bnt these are so few that
probably the loss does not exceed 2
per cent.
"Whilst in my travels, I inspected and saw a great number of orchards. Of course it was impossible
for me in the time at my disposal to
visit every section of the country, yet
I think you may take this report as
representative of the average conditions prevailing in the country.
"On the lower mainland andVan-
couver island, except in a very few
individual cases, very little damage
has been done. Where loss has occurred, it has been owing to local
conditions, and the treatment of the
trees.
"The practice has been prevalent
in some orchards throughout the
ower mainland and Vancouver is-
and of cultivating too late in the
Beasons, thus causing a secondary
growth in the fall of the year. This
wood does not mature, or ripen
properly, before the winter sets in,
and should a cold spell occur,as lhat
of last winter, the sap wood freezes,
and thus badly injures, and in some
cases kills the trees.
"Loss from these causes can be
guarded against to a large extent in
the future by stopping cultivation of
the trees earlier than has been usual
heretofore, and by so doing allowing
the trees to mature tneir season's
growth properly.
"Another interesting feature is,
that some varieties have practically
suffered no injury, whilst others
have suffered badly. This will prove
a valuable lesson for those setling
out orchards in the future, as by selection of those varieties which have
proved immune, the risk from a future similar loss will be largely
eliminated.''
Inspectors Appointed
New fruit inspectors have been
appointed by Hon. Sydney Fisher,
minister of agriculture, at Regina,
Lethbridge, Nelson and Grand Forks,
the locil appointee being W.J.
Cook. An assistant inspector has
also been appointed for Winnipeg.
These inspectors are each given a
certain district to cover and with
the present additions to the staff
the inspection iu British Columbia
and the prairie provinces will be
much more comprehensive than it
has been in the past. Formerly the
inspectors lost a great deal of time in
traveling, much of which is elimi
nated by the subdivision of the territory.
Importers of American apples will
be held responsible for the proper
grading and marking of the packages
in accordance with the provisions of
the Canadian law.
NOTED JLECTURER
Prof. Craig, of Cornell, Will
Speak on "Commercial
Fruit Growing"
Prof. Cmig, of Cornell university,
will deliver a lecture on "Commercial Fruit Growing" in the city hall
next Tuesday evening under the
auspices of the Kettle Valley Farmers' Institute. Prof. Craig is one of
•he best authorities on horticulture
the continent, and his lecture
should prove highly profitable to the
ranchers of the valley. Everybody
is invited to attend.
The Public Meeting
The public meeting in the opera
house on Tuesday evening under
the auspices of Grand Forks Union
No. 180, W.F.M., was fairly well
attended, though the house was by
no means crowded. Mr. McKinnon, of Rossland, district organizer
for the W. F. M., spoke brielfy on
the value of labor organizations as
an offset to tbe encroachments of
capitalism. He was followed by
Win. D. Haywood, who was one of
the principals in the now world-
famous trials in Idaho a couple of
years ago for the murder of Governor Steunenberg. He described his
imprisonment as an outrage, without preliminary trial or bearing.
The first part of his speech was devoted to Socialism. On this subject he told us nothing new—nothing that we did not hear during the
last campaign. Uut the major portion of the evening wits taken up
with a review of the labor troubles
in tho Coeur d'Alenes, in Colorado
and in Utah—subjects that have
long since been incorporated in
western history. It was a peculiar
speech. Perhaps as many sermons
could be preached from what was
left unsaid by inference and innuendo, as from wbat he really did
say. Like all speakers of his belief,
he is a past master at coining
phrases. One of the new tints was
"Teethodore Roosevelt."

C.P.R. to Advertise Province
The C. P. R. land commissioner
for this province, desiring articles
descriptive of lands in this section
of British Columbia and such settlers as are established thereon, has
commissioned C. E. Lawrence, of
Kamloops, to go through the Columbia and Kootenay valleys and
the Boundary district to visit and
interview individuals and such cooperative settlers as the Doukhobors,
taking beside note of climatic conditions and opportunities for tbat
most desirable class of settlers—the
people with money. This is a part
of a comprehensive advertising
scheme to place the province before
the British and American public,
and the articles Mr. Lawrence have
written have proved to be the class
of work the C.P.R. requires in connection with the sale of their large
holdings in British Columbia. The
tour will occupy two weeks or more.

MINING RECORDS
For Campers
Don't, when in the woods, throw
down a lighted match, cigar stub or
other flaming objects; make sure
that the flame hus been thoroughly
extinguished before throwing it
away.
Don't build your camp fire larger
than is necessary.
Don't under any circumstances
leave your fire unguarded, even for
a comparatively short time; see that
it is dead belore you go away.
Don't build your fire in leaves,
rotten wood or other inflammable
material.
Don't build your fire against a large
or hollow log, where it is hard to be
sure when it bas been entirely put
out.
To these "don'ts" it may be added that in windy weather or in a
dangerous place it is well to confine
the fire in a hole dug clean down to
the mineral soil. A fire may smoulder in the humus or "duff" for days,
only waiting for a strong breeze to
fun it into flume that may burn over
miles of timber.
Summer tourists and campers unfortunately   have a  bail reputation
among   owners   of timber as being
often   a   cause of  fires.    Such fires
could be prevented, almost without
exception, by a little extra   care   on
the pnrt of the campers, who  have
been tbe unintentional cause of much
forest   destruction,  and who   hnve
just ns renl an interest in the  preservation of the forests as the owners of
the timber   themselves.    The rules
given   above   are the result of long
experience and observation  on  the
j part of many woodsmen   and   lum-
I berrnen ns the origin of   fires   from
this cause, and are   earnestly  com-
I mended to the attention of campers,
! sportsmen and others.

The atmosphere in looal political
circles has been rather warm during
the past few davs, and no one now attempts to deny that we are on the
eve uf a provincial election. The
greatest surprise nf the week has been
the partial unmasking uf a back number peanut politician from the plains,
who since his arrival here has made
strenuous efforts tu prepare a soft
berth for himself by ingratiating himself into tbe go id graces uf all parties
and all factions, ami alsu liy a
copious use uf self-praise, the most
nauseating form of the numerous
varieties of flattery. The next week
or two should bring out interesting
developments.

Be cheerful at any cost to thc
house or company.
A good, substantial excuse is always desirable, but is apt to be expensive.
It takes a lot of confidence in your
appetite to cause you to order scrambled eggs at a restaurant.
Don't kick. Get some one else to
do it. It will conserve your own
reputation and be just as effective.
The mun who systematically
blows hi.s own born uses his lungs to
such an extent that he is apt to.get
chesty.
Speak gently to an angry man.
He will wint to kill you anyway, so
it doesn't matter if you do incense
bim further.
Don't speak harshly of your enemies. Tbey expect you to knock
them, and if you have them guessing they will cease activities for a
time.
The days are getting so short that
lots of us don't get time in which to
earn a much needed rest.
The man who makes a good living hasn't much to complain of unless somebody else gets it.
To keep on good terms with some
neighbors you bave to be deaf as a
post and blind as a bat and stand
for all the ghastly jokes that they
spring.
When the new wife finds out that
John likes corned beef and cabbage
better than he likes angel cake one
more illusion has gone to swell the
vanished myriads.
He doesn't see why his wife should
object to being left alone whenever
he wants to leave her alone. 11
didn't take a contract to keep her
entertained, not if he knows it, even
if be did happen to marry her.
Thc trouble with some people is
that just when you get everything
arranged qo suit them they exercise
their inalienable right of changing
their mind.
Some of onr younger generation
couldn't be really happy if they
thought they were in any danger of
being good.
Some matrimonial matches look
as if they were the result of a trade
"unsight, unseen."
Keep cool during the heated term,
but there is little hope that you will
be able to keep cool enough to induce those people you owe money
to out your acquaintance.
There is usually something queer
about a man. It would be queer if
there weren't.
Giving advice sounds easy, but
wben asked to do it ten hours a
day the average man is calling, "help,
help."
Getting rid of poverty is as tedious and tiresome as settling lbe difficulties of a mismaled pair and lakes
almost as long.
People who insist upon laying the
burden of their troubles upon other
people's shoulders deserve to have
tbeir troubles multiplied, ami generally get wbat they deserve.

Paul's Third Missionary Journey—
Farewells.   Acts xx:2-3K,
Golden Text—1 can do all things
through Christ, which Btiengtheneth
me.    Phil. • 1: 13.
Verse i!—What effect does Paul's
method of "exhortation" of the brethren have, when practiced in these
dnys?
Verse 3—Do enemies in these days,
either in flesh or spirit, constantly lie
in wait for the Christian?
Have our God formed plans, for the
future, sometimes got to be changed
to meet the tactics of the enemy?
Verses 4 6—It would look as if
these leading evangelists of new religion would be needed elsewhere
thnn with Paul; say therefore, what
advantage it was to them, or Paul, or
the cause, tlmt they were with himf
What help is it to a preacher, or a
Christian worker, to listen for some
days to a man like Paul?
Where were Phjlippi and Troas sit-
uutcil.
Verse 7-12—Does verse seven indicate that it was tiie practice of the
early Christians to "break bread" together on the first day of each   week? [
What can you say against or in
favor of tbe unmistable demand which
exists for short sermons, in view of
tbis incident? (This question must be
answered in writihg by members of
the club.)
Why is it that church members will
listen, unwearied, for twe hours to a
political speech, anil get tired of even
a good sermon if it lasts longer than
thirty minutes?
Can you blame this young man
Eutyclius, for uoing to sleep under a
sermon several hours long?
Verses 13 IB—As a geographical exercise look up on the map the places
mentioned in verses 13 to 10, and say
where tbey are situated?
Verses 17-21—Paul here opens his
heart, and gives his personal exper
ience without any of the ait of tbe
orator; would it be more Christian,
and more practical, if modern preach-
eis would constantly give their experience in their sermons, thus furnishing concrete examples of the
power of the gospel?
Verse 22—\Vould it help us to
know in detail, tbe things that are to
happen to us in the future?
What is tbe meaning of "go bound
in tbe spirit to Jerusalem?"
Must such inward convictions, as
Paul had, always be heeded?
If we disobey these thoughts of the
soul, what will be tbe effect upon our
spiritual life?
Verse 23—Is it usual, or common,
for God to give to spiritual men a
glimpse into the outlines of the future.
Verse 24—Has each Christian as
distinct a mission as Paul had?
Which should we rather sacrifice,
our life, or the accomplishment of our
mission?
Should our last farewells, to our be.
