APPLE
Australians Prefer It to Any
Other Variety Now
Grown
In view of the foot that ^Canadian
fruit growers, particularly in British
Columbia, are planting a large number of Jonathan apples, and that we
hope to develop considerable fruit
trade with our cousins on tbe] other
side of terra firma who prosper under the Southern Cross, the following
from the Melbourne Australasian
on the Jonathan will be of interest
to Canadian apple growers:
"If a plebiscite was to be taken to
determine the most popular variety
of apple grown in Victorja, the result would undoubtedly place the
Johathan at the head of the list.
Notwithstanding that public opinion
is of a very transient nature, so far
as its taste for fruit is concerned, it
seems likely that in tbe case of tbe
Jonathan an exception is to "be
made. Only a few years ago the
Ribstone Pippin and Adam's Pear-
main varieties were most in demand,
and uespite thi exquisite flavor of
the former and the attractive appearance of the latter they are now
-Oomparatively worthless from a com
merc'i',1 point of view, so far as this
state is concerned. Many another
variety of fruit has met with a similar fate, due to no explainable reason. But there are many cause
that will prevent the Jonathan from
gradually decreasing in favor as a
midseason apple. It hns probably
been more extensively planted than
any other variety, and hns been ac-8
corded so great a demand, both for
local consumption and the oversea
trade, that growers are commencing
to specialize with it, a fact that indicates that many another variety will
be less cultivated, if not altogether
superseded by the favorite. Moreover the Jonathan is of attractive
appearance, of a good flavor, keeps
well in cold storage, and, above all,
is admirably suited for planting out
in almost every part of the state.
Tbese nre advantages that the fruit
grower cannot afford to overlook.
An increased production is, to a
great extent, equivalent to an increased demand, for a retailer is
bound to purchase such varieties of
fruit as he finds he cm regularly depend upon to cirry him over tbe
greater part of tho fruit season.
"Several" years ago the average
Jonathan tree more often than not
appeared to bo almost a weakling.
The trees frequently looked as if
. tbey were being grown under uncongenial conditions, and the branches
often seemed as if they had not sufficient vigor to carry a crop. The
spreading characteristics of the variety and the lack of a proper system of pruning were, no doubt,
largely responsible for conveying
this impression, which probably was
accentuated by the appearance of
tbe number of stronger growing va-
rioties that then predominated in the
orchards. Since the production of
fruit bas overtaken local demands,
and thus caused greater competition,
growers have been forced to pay
more attention to their trees, and to
expect from them, when properly
treated, an   increase in yield   and
quality commensurate with the extra care bestowed upon them. Nowadays the successful orohardist,when
he finds that a tree is not making a
profitable return, cuts it down, and
reworks it to some other variety,
and, though he finds it bard to do,
he knows that only by this means
can he expect to mnke fruit growing
a success. Much the same course of
events is taking plnce with regard to
the pruning of trees, particularly so
far as it concerns the treatment of
the Jonathan. The practice which
now exists to some small extent, but
which a few years ago was fairly
general, of cutting the light lateral
shoots close back to nenr the main
limbs, or, for that matter, lo a blind
eye at the b'se, did more to injure
the trees than all other treatments
combined. It was to this cause
that many a tree appeared to be
"ragged" and ill supplied with lateral growth. But a more intelligent
Bystem of pruning is rapidly altering
tbis condition of affairs, and wherever the method of allowing the
light laterals to run is followed, as
bas been advocated in tbese columns
for several years, the trees present a
more sturdy and fruitful appearance.
"There are few places were the
success of the method of pruning referred to has been more pronounced
than at Mr. Cowan's orchard at
Bacchus Marsh, and Mr. Thatcher's
property at Mitcham. About four
yeara ago Mr. Cronin, now director
of the Botanical Gardens, gave n
pruning demonstration at Mr.
Cowan's orchard, at which be
showed how the light growth should
be encouraged and marured. The
following season one of the best
crops that has been secured resulted,
and since that time, under tbis
method of treatment, jhere has been
a phenomenal increase in the annual yield of the trees. Despite the
fact that the trees in Mr. Thatcher's
orchard have carried good crops for
several years iu succession, they are
again this year loaded with fruit.
At a rough estimate the older trees
now have a crop on thnt will proba
bly go seven cases to the tree. At
an average price of 4 shillings, whicb
this year will be obtainable in the
open market, the gross returns' per
acre will be somewhat in the neighborhood of .£ 140. This, of course,
represents only what properly managed and well cared for trees nre
capable of producing under exceptional market conditions, but if considered under normal conditions,
both as regards crop und market,the
returns from such trees should be
nearly three times ns much ns the
average grower receives, who,through
failing to thoroughly understand the
management of theJonnthan, causes
bis own comparative failure."

SATURDAY, MARCH) 19, 1910
The provincial legislature has
been prorogued. Although a number of important measures were enacted, it was the most uninteresting
ssssion ever held in British Columbin, owing to the wenk opposition.
The amphitheatre in which the
Jeffries-Johnson tight is to take place
will have a seating enpncity for fifty
thousand spectators. All the barbarians now extant on this continent will have an opportunity of
witnessing the slugging match.
A town where a man lives and
makes his money should be good
enough for him to invest his earnings or profits. This, however, does
not appear to be rule today. In
every town in the interior of the
province the people have contracted
the coast real estate gambling mania,
and the game is being played to the
limit. Every month thousands of
dollars nre being sent of this city to
keep up the monthly instalments.
Prices for const real estate are now
at their zenith, and when the slump
comes the small investor A-ill have
gained a little more experience at the
cost of many hard-earned dollars.
Kealty in the heart of any of the
coast cities is undoubtedly a safe investment; but this is not the kind the
mun from the interior buys, because
it is beyond his means. His hobby is
suburban property. He has not had
an oppoitunity of personally inspecting it. It may be be a dozen
miles from the eity. It may be located in a swamp, dense forest, or
on the tide-flats. This kind of prop
eity is not likely to make millionaires of the speculators during this
or  the  succeeding generation.
A Sad Home-Coming
On Thursday Mrs H. N. Galer
died suddenly at the home of her sister, Mrs. Rube Hull, in Carson, two
miles south of this eity, where Rhe had
been visiting for a few weeks. During the afternoon she took a walk to
Danville. On returning home she laid
down for a rest. In a few moments,
without the slightest warning, she expired.    Ur.   Kingston   was  Immedi
ately summoned, and lie pronounced
death clue to heart failure.
Deceased was about twenty-four
years of age. She was the daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. John McLaren, who
were one of the first families to settle
in this valley. About six years ago
she married H. N. Galer, then vice-
presfdent of the Granby company, but
who during the past four or five years
has been vice-president and manager
of the International Coal eompany,
with headquarters at Calemnn, Alta,
Recently Mr. Galer has been up-
pointed general manage.i of the British
American Trust company, with headquarters in Vancouver, and at the
time of her death Mrs. Galer wus
making preparations to remove to that
city with her husband. Mr. Galer
arrived from Spokane Inst night to
take his wife to Vancouver, only to
learn that sbe bad passed away.
The sudden death of M.'S. Galer has
cast a shade of sorrow over the community, as she wus a most estimable
woman, and her friends were only
limited by the number of her acquaintances. A widower, an aged
father and a large family of brothers
and sister survive her.
The funeral will be held from Mr.
and Mrs. Hull's home, in Carson, at
2 o'clock tomorrow afternoon.

| Thfl first time you meet a woman
she'll be^in to tell you her troubles if
she has a chance the second time she
will make the chance.
And it sometimes happens that one
can judge by appearances. Many a
woman seems strait-laced because she
is luc.il t at way.
The wise maid ascertains how much
a young man can afford to squander
for an engagement ring before extending glad hand.
When you hear of a man committing suicide on his wife's grave yon
are safe in betting thai he didn't treat
hei decent while alive.
Women who want to marry men to
reform thein ought first to take in
washing for a year and see how they
like the business.
It's wise to have a place for everything and everything in its plane, provided you can always tind   the  place.
When a man is married to a good
woman he doesn't think it necessury
to go to church.
There is no use to deny that women
are foolish—they were made to match
the men.
It may be old-fashioned, but we al-
was did prefer the shirtsleeves to the
smoking jacket.
It's a might mean man lhat will
kick when he sees a hole in the toe of
the baby's shoe.
Of course we all want to get on the
safe side, but it's often a question
which is the safe side.
We haven't much use for miser, but
it is better to freeze on to your money
than burn it.
One man is born with a silver spoon
in his mouth, another with a wooden
ladle.
' It is fate that makes a champion
of one man and a punching big of another.
Pearls   are  the emblems of  tears,
