ANNUAL MEETING
Kettle Valley Farmers' Institute Is in a Prosperous Condition
President Morrison opened the
annual meeting of tbe Kettle Valley
Farmers' institute, held in tbe :ity
hall last Monday night, by stating
that the organization was in a most
prosperous condition. The institute
now has 72 members. Ten meetings had been held during the year.
The institute had been instrumental
in securing, during the past year,
the installation of a rain gauge, the
appointment of a Dominion fruit
inspector, and in bringing many
lecturers on agricultural subjects to
{be city.
On motion of C. C. Heaven and
Geo. Hansen, the following resolution was adopted:
"Whereas, In view of the rapid
growth or spread throughout the
province of noxious weeds, and in
view of the fact that whole areas of
valuable farm tracts are rapidly becoming overgrown therewith, and in
view of tbe fact that unless stringent
measures are taken immediately by
the government to destroy these
agricultural pests, they will in tbe
near future constitute a most seri
ous menace to the best insterests of
the farming and agricultural interests; be it, therefore,
"Resolved, That this association
views with alarm the rapid spread of
obnoxious weeds throughout tbe
agricultural portions of the province,
and that it is in the best interests of
the farming and agricultural classes
and the province as a whole that an
act of the provincial government be
passed making it compulsory for tbe
owners of land to destroy each year,
and before tbey.go to seed, the following noxious weeds, namely:
Canada thistU;, Russian.thistle, Jim
Hill muBtardv1 oxeya daisy, wild
oats, tag'weed;''charlpelf,-sorrel, burdock, wild miktard; and all other
noxious weeds, and,'incorporating a
penalty therein for failure.to comply
therewith/;- tfrertr "locals i'twpectors ■-. be

"Hesolvfed, That copies ol this resolution bu.f'irwarded to the honorable
the premier, the honorable the at
tornty general, and to Ernest Miller,
M.P.P."
Secretary Clark submitted his annual report. Nine meetings had
been held in Grand Forks and one
in Cascade during the paBt year.
The finances of the association were
iii" a satisfactory condition. He
hope that the institute vfould hold
its first annual exhibition next fall.
C. A. S. Atwood and T. A. Mclntyre were appointed auditors of
the/ secretary treasurer's books.
A vote of thanks was tendered the
city for the use of the hall, and to
the press for courtesies extended the
institute.
The following officers were elected
for he ensuing year: President, C.
Scott Galloway; vice-president, A.
Tweedle;  secretary-treasurer,   Fred
Clark; directors, C. C Heaven, J. D. j tion of essays or debates, whichever
Honsberger, T.  R.   Powers,   A. C.' the institute might prefer.
Burr,   J. T. Lawrence and   Robert |
Lawson.
The retiring president, Mr. Morrison, thanked the association for
the honor of bestowing tbe presidency upon him during the past
year. The institute, in return, ten-
drred him a vote of thanks for his
services.
Mr. J. D. Honjberger gave an interesting and practicable address on
the subjeot of "Irrigation"—and
there is probably no man in tbis
district, or in the province, better
qualified to speak on this subject
than Mr. Honsberger. Irrigation in
semi-arid districts was an important
question, and it had been tbe means
ol converting many "dry bells" into prosperous communities. Where
practicable, he believed irrigation
provided tbe safest and cheapest
method of farming, because it made
the farmer independent of dry sea
sons. It was a difficult subject to
explain to an audience. It could
only be learned by actual experience,
and the man who started in to irri-
an orchard had need of as
much good, sound judgment as of
book learning or instructions from
the lecture platform. The point was
to imitate nature as closely as possible. The first seven years after
planting orchards in this valley did
not need to be irrigated. Land with
a clay subsoil was not suited for
fruit or irrigation, because the water
would remain in the ground, which
had a tendency to give the trees
"wet feet." It was his opinion
tbat people who irrigated their land
used too much. There were three
things to be considered in irrigating
—the time, tbe method of applying
the vater, and the quantity of water
used. The time was when it waB
needed, and in this case every man
had to use hiB own judgment. He
had formerly been a believer in sur
face irrigation, but lately he had
become converted to tbe deep-furrow method of applying the water.
He fully explainod hiB reasons for
giving yreference to the latter
method. The quantity of water to
be used was a difficult problem to
solve, it was of great importance,
because over-irrigation had a ten
dency to make the fruit soggy, or
even to roi it. He himself had had
some fruit spoiled in recent years by
over-irrigation. The reason it was
bo difficult to irrigate an orchard
properly was the uncertainty of the
rainfall. A proper irrigation of an
orchard might be followed by a
heavy fall of rain, which would, of
course, give a superabundance of
moisture. Properly irrigated fruit,
he Baid, was equal in llavor and
quality to the uon-irrigated varieties. At the conclution of his
speech, Mr. Honsberger was kept
busy fur a short time answering
questions on the subject he had discussed, after which the institute
tendered him a vote of thanks for
his addres.
W. A. Cooper, who was also to
have given an address before the institute, waB unable to do bo owing
to illness.
The secretary was voted $25 for his
services during the past year. He
was also tendered a vote of thanks.
James Rooke was appointed a
delegate to the Central Institute,
which meets in Victoria.
A. D. Morrison offered the institute a shield for annual competition,
to be used for the purpose of encouraging members in the prepare-

PROTESTED GAME
Assembly of the Ladies of
the Maccabees an En
joyable Affair
! The ice on Ward's lake is reported
I to be in excellent condition for skating.
The Ladies of the Maccabees were
tbe hostesses at an assembly held on
Wednesday evening in the Davis
hall. The affair was one of the
most pleasant gatherings held this
season, and proved that the ladies
in charge are popular both individually and as an order. The hall has
been arranged with a clear view to
comfort and convenience of crowds
on just such merry occasions,
and this feature had something to
do with the success of the affair.
Conversation, music, dancing and
card-playing whiled away the earlier
houre of the evening, and before
midnight a very tempting supper
was served in the dining-hall. The
long tables were adorned with the
rich foliage of Oregon grape, and
were freighted with the nicest of
salads and jellies and cake. Mrs.
Wheeler supplied music for the
dancing. The Maccabees have been
complimented from all sides upon
the pleasing manner in which their
at-home was conducted.

The hockey game at the local
rink on Thursday night between
the Grand Forks and Greenwood
Boundary league teams was one of
swiftest and best exhibitions of
hockey witnessed here this season,
and resulted in a victory for the
home team by a score of 5 goals to
About 500 spectators witnessed
the contest, a special train from
Greenwood contributing 150 of this
number.
Considerable delay was experienced in starting, the Greenwood
team refusing to play the gumo except under protest, tbeir "contention
being tbat Miller was not eligible to
play with the Grand Forks team.
'-The protest was finally agreed to.
The playing was fast from
start to finish, tbe players of both
teams working as if the championship depended on this particular
game. Both goalkeepers did excellent work, and all the members of
the two teams played good hockey.
Mr. Miller.the new man on the home
team, proved himself lo be one of
swiftest skaters an the ice, and his
brilliant playing was much admired
by the spectators. Bert Reid received, accidentally, a bad cut
above the eye, which necessitated a
few stitches. Taken as a whole,
however, the game was fast and
clean.
Roy Curran satisfactorily refereed
the game, very few punishments being indicted.
The line-up was as follows:
OKAND FORKSj GBEENWOOD
Lang .Goal Walsuu
McAlmas Point. .Chas. Russell
Mann C. Point....Clifl Rusaell
Miller Rover Bloomfield
Quinn Centre CleiiT
Baker R. Wing Cameron
Reid L. Wing Ruction
The next game will be played at
Greenwood 011 Monday evening, the
7th inst. The local team will run an
excursion train to (ireenwood on
this occasion. The train will return
to this city about midnight.
Phoenix won from Greenwood in
the former city last Wednesday
night by a score of 4 goals to 8.
Tbis places Phoenix in the lead for
the Boundary league championship,
with Grand Forks second and
Greenwood third.
The Nelson Intermediate hockey
team played the Grand Forks intermediates ut the local rink ou Wednesday night, the score being 2 goals
to i in favor of the Grand Forks
hoys. It was omr of the cleanest
and swiftest games seen here this
winter.

The puerile adulation showered on
the provincial government by the
party-bound press is becoming'rather

carry out its pledges.

The present high cost of living i.s

that more practical information wus
to be gleaned from Mr. Honsberger's
remarks than is usually contained in
the speeches deliveretl by men sent
in from'the outside. It is quite natural that this should be so, because
local men are familiar with the existing conditions of the tlistriet. It is
to be that more of the well-informed

tremendous opportunity before them

have to be done, and if the citv nntl
the provincial and Dominion govern

indication that the fruit growers from
one end of the country to the other

winter nests that were found. Over
a million and a half plants were
examined and nearly two hundred
nests were found on seedlings and
stocks of pear, apple, plum, quince,
cherry, rose, spiraea &o. In view
of the fact that eaeh nest contains
from 200 to 300 young larvee of this
insect, the great benefit to fruitgrowers, horticulturists and others
resulting from the work of last
season can readily be understood.
In the eastern states thousands of
dollars are being spent annually by
the various authorities in their
efforts to control and prevent the
spread of this insect which has established itself in those regions since
its introduction into Massachusetts
on imported stock about the year
1890. Itis of the utmost importance that all steps possible shall be
taken to prevent its introduction
and establishment in those regions,
of Canada now free from its attack,
and its further spreading in those
places in Nova Scotia and New
Brunswick where it bas been introduced accidentally. Its establishment in Canada would be most
serious to the nurserymen and fruitgrowers of tbis country, and ewry
precaution possible must be taken
to avert such a calamity.
Will you kindly inform me,
therefore, if you are importing or
have already imported nursery stock
this season from abroad, and the
place from which the stock is being
or has been imported.
As nests bave been found on
stock imported during tbe prawnt
season, 1 should be pleased if you
would send ine this information at
once in order thnt your stock maty
be inspected, if necessary. If tbe
stock has not arrived already would
you please send me notice as to tbe
time of its arrival in order that it
may be inspected at the time of unpacking, and thus the least incon- Trader* for Freighting of Supplies for

A Clean Man
Outside cleanliness is less than half the battle. A man may
scrub himself a dozen times a day, and still be unclean. Good
health means cleanliness not only outside, but inside. It means
a clean stomach, clean bowels, clean blood, a clean liver, nd
new, clean, healthy tissues. The man who is ilean in this way
will look it and aot it. He will work with energy and think
clean, clear, healthy thoughts.
H" will never be troubled with liver, lung, stomach or Mood
disorders. Dyspepsia and indigestion originate in unclean stomachs. Blood diseases are found where there is unclean blood*
Consumption and bronchitis mean unclean lungs.
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery
prevents these diseases. It mokes a man's insides clean
and healthy. It cleans the digestive organs* makes pure,
clean blood, and clean* healthy flesh.
It restores tone to the nervous system, and cures nervous exhaustion and
prostration.   It contains no alcohol or habit-forming drugs.
Constipation is the most unclean unclcanliness. Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellet! cure it.   Tbey never gripe.   Easy to take as candy.
