THE RED APPLE
Grows East of the Cascade
land North of 45th
Parallel
Range i
On Humid West Coast the
Fruit Does Not Take on
a High Color
All of the red apple belt on what
is known as the Pacific coast, it is
safe to say, is north of the forty-
fifth parallel though a good yellow
apple iB grown much south of it;
and the very best portion of such red
apple belt is in its northern limits,
according to J. F. Cass, of Mt. Vernon, Wash., in an article that he has
contributed to the Western Farmer.
The fact seems now well establish
ed. And that belt is also limited to
that portion of the country east of
the Cascade mountains, where an
almost continual summer sunshine
obtains.
West of the mountain range the
fruit does not take on a high color
in the humid moist air there and
clouded skies. And in certain portions of the eastern section, because
of its dryness of the atmosphere,
fungi is almost unknown. While
the copper plating of the fruit by
the use of the Bordeaux mixture
may be to some extent a preventative
to injury from fungi, yet tile spray
is always more or less injurious in
tne way of marring the delicate surface aieu texture of the skin, or pre
vents its best development.
In all of this dray and semi-arid
region where the red apple comes to
its best estate, irrigation of the soil
is impeaatively essential to grow th'
fruit at all to even a normal size or
quality. And it is hard for an easterner to understand conditions where
good surface cultivation, etc., of the
orchard would not produce good results without the artificial watering.
'Ihey are too much inclined to go by
the books. In the region here the
whole growing season is practically
without min.
All, or nearly all, precipitation
takes place in the winter season.
And one single summer shower in
the eastern states will usually equal
the whole year's rainfull in this
region noted. Even in the district
of 1'uget Sound, where it is supposed
it rains about all the time, I hnve
never known the soil .ordinarily to
be well soaked through from the effect of one rain storm. In the apple
growing region out here the soil a
few inches beneath the surface is
generally in a dry powder form
t in ughout the whole season, and
tin* necessity for irrigation is ap-
p rent.
Common observation and experi-
eu a at once loads one to see the
re ecd for irrigation of the orchard
lands, for the product of the orchard
Without the water here is nf thci must
ordinary and comparatively worth-
be found in
with that from sections east of the
mountains having an eastern like
winter. I
Tbe finest apple of the Atlantic
side of the continent grows away up
in the northern district on Lake
Champlain where the Fameuse comes
to its perfection. And this variety
is grown there, and on the Island of
Montreal, and still further north, in
the Ottawa valley, has nothing to
compare with it for its fine dessert
table quality in its season, or at any
time. The Mcintosh Red, almost
similar to the other and now largely
taking its place there, for the
Fameuse is very subject to the effects
of fungi and is a more tender tree,
is a good second to it.
But 45 north latitude is the extreme limit for the apple tree on the
Atlantic coast, while we here can
grow in the dry region noted these
same varieties and under otherwise
the same conditions, and with the
longer clear days of sunshine added,
away up to the sixtieth parallel, or
perhaps in sheltered valleys, above
it. The writer is Well acquainted
with the other regions noted and
these varieties are grolvn there, and
as the same are as grown near the
fiftieth parallel, in the dry region of
this coast, and believes the world has
never yet seen the equal of these last
in all the qualities counted as making up the perfect fruit of their class.
But such quality cannot be produced
south of its northern limits.
Who Mocks the Farmer?
Under the heading "Let's Kid the
Farmer," the Calgary News hurls
scathing sarcasms at thosa who deride
the farmer and his calling, who cull
him a hayseed, and a rube, and a jay,
who laugh at the hired man and the
hired girl, who shake the farmer's
pride in his calling, and makehia
children discontented with country
life. Warmly the News defends the
farmer, and praises) the health and
freedom of his calling.
The News has the right point of
view except, he think, that exagger
ates the importance of the jokes at
the farmer's expense. Who mucks at
the farmer! Nobody whose opinion
is worth having. Among intelligent
city men who have reached years of
maturity, the attitude toward the
farmer is one not only of respect but
of envy. You hear them sighing for
the joys of country life, and sorrowing
because the hard necassity of earning
a living chains them to a desk in the
city. You find them getting as near
as they can to country life by taking
a cottage in the suburbs, raising chickens, and hopefully studying the seed
catalogues that bloom in the spring.
You see the rich city man buying a
farm and taking more joy in his expensively raised crops than in all the
shows and luxuries of the metropolis.
Young city people sometimes talk
of the "hayseed" and the "rube"
thoughtlessly. They grow out of it,
at least the best of them will. Those
to whom city life is a noveity sometimes jeer at the country and at the
farm, because of a desperate desire to
look like knowing fellows, experienced
men of the world who know the names
of streets. You will observe that it is
the fresh and young conductor who is
impatient with the slow-moving
stranger from the country.   The wise
less character that can   be found in : old conductor eyes the stranger   wist-
any section,   this us  a rule, while j fully.    He has'long seen wheels turn-
I ing and men tlyin.
the irrigated orchard turns out the
finest in general grown on the continent.
But Ihis i orthern latitude, with
itB long sunny summer days, is the
factor principally that brings tbe
truit lo perfection.     And  not alone

Shipped Six Carloads of Ore
to the Qranby Smelter
This Week
An Assay Office and Bunk-
houses Being Erected at
the Mine
The Golden F,agle mine, located on
Vocunic mountain, ten miles north
of this city, on the North Fork, resumed ore shipments to the Grandy
smelter this week, sending down six
cars of about 30 tons each over the
Kettle Valleys line. It is the intention
of the Heine management to ship two
cars every other day in future. The
ore averages about %2'6 per ton in
value. There are at preeent 1000
tons of ore on the dump at the mine.
Eighteen men are employed at the
property. The tunnel now being
driven has encountered the vein 20
feet below the shaft, and an upraise is
being made to the main workings.
Numerous improvements are now
being made at the mine. These include the construction of an assay
office and bunk houses.

Our Mineral Promts
The returns of the mineral production of Canada, prepared by J. Mc-■
Leish, in charge of the division of •
mineral resources and statistics of
the department of mines, is very interesting. It is of the annual mineral products for the years since and
including 1886:
The figures, increasing from ulO,-
221,255 in 1886 to ^87,3_3,849 in
the year 190S, Beem phenomenal.
Its steadiness is a very interesting
feature. Between ISSli and 1893
there was a gradual growth which
nearly doubled the output, and tbe
gain kept on at about the same ratio
Until 1897, when the Klondike gold
began to appear in tbe returns. This
led to a lump of ten millions, and in
the following year there was even a
greater gain. Klondike began to be
less productive after that, but the
expansion in value of the total product of the country went' on even
more rapidly. Then there came a
period when the figures fell slight[y,
The new Province hotel, which
has just been completed, will be
opened to the public next Thursday,
April 1st. Mr. Larsen, the pro-,

house-warming will be on a scale
commensurate with the size of the
building.

NEW ILL1INM
Blaugas Is Superior to Electricity, and at One-Half
the Cost
Local Demonstration Made
of Many Uses to Which
It Is Adapted
The coming summer is likely to
Bee a revolution in the different systems of lighting, heating, cooking
and power, based on the invention
of a gas by Hermann Blau, of Augsburg, Bavaria, which he has named
blaugas, after himself. Blaugas is
manufactured from any crude min-
tral oil, even from which petroleum
has been extracted. The oil is distilled in retorts under low temperature and the gas is obtained, which
is subjected to a pressure of 1440
pounds to tbe square inch, and under this modus operandi it is reduced to a liquid, and as such is
stored in different sized cylinders and
sold by the pound. When the cylinder is connected to a reducing
valve and the pressure is released
the liquid is transformed into a gas,
which is transmitted through ordinary gas pipes or a small tube about
the size of a telegraph wire, and as
such used for lighting, cooking and
heating purposes, inculning soldering, welding, braizing, rivet heating,
etc., etc. With its use many advantages manifest themselves, viz: it
iB non-explosive, non-asphyxiating,
non-freezable, and very economical.
As an illuminunt it is used with a
mantle, giving a soft white light,
which can be operated from a long
distance switch. When it is used
for cooking its calorific efficiency is
three times greater than that of coal
gas, and is therefore adapted for
every use where great heat is required. As the gas contains no
carbon dioxide or monoxide it is free
from asphyxiation snould a leak occur. As the gas does not freeze,
those who will use it in cold climates will have a gas on which utmost reliance can be placed. The
plant in connection consistent a simple reducing valve, and as the gas is
portable and sold by weight, it will
especially appeal to those whose environment and calling secludes them
beyond thc pale of civilization. A
great future is in store for blaugas.
In Germany and Hungary it is in
use on thc railroads and Steamships,
domestic and commercial bouses,
etc. The gas will be manufactured
throughout the United States and
Canada during the .coining summer.
Ih'. G. Lewis, representing the
Blaugas Company of Canada, was
in the city this week, and gave a
ilenionslratiou of the miiny uses to
which the new illuminant is adapted at the Yule hotel on Wednesday
night. The some candlepowergives
twice the amount of light of electricity. The doctor claimed that thu
cost of the new gas would not be
one-half tbat of any other light now
in use. It will be placed on thc
market in June or July next.

PERSIAN PHILOSOPHY
[FROM THE HUM8TAN OP SA:DI.]
Whatever is produced in haute goes
hastily to waste.
The envious man is niggard of his
gifts of Providence, and an enemy of
the innocent.
Whoever will not not listen to admonition harbors the fancy of hearing
reprehension.
A Mean wretch that cannot vie
with another in virtue will assail him
with malignity.
The tongue.Jby abuse, renders a man
contemptible; levity in a nut is a sign
of its being empty.
To grapple with a lion, or to box
against a naked scimitar, are not the
the acts of the prudents.
A weak man who tries his courage
against the slimy leagues of his foe
goes to his own destruction.
Nothing is so good for an ignorant
man as silence, and if he knew this he
would no longer be ignorant.
When unadorned with the grace of
eloquence it is wise to keep watch
over the tongue in the mouth.
None is more unlucky than the
misanthrope, for on the day of adversity he has not a single friend.
A loaf of bread may fill an empty
stomach, but the produce of the whole
globe cannot satisfy a greedy eye.
Virtue thou never canst learn from
the wicked; it is not the wolf's occupation to mend skins, but to tear them.

does not practice it resembles lum who

An Otter Which Meets the Special Wants of All Classes ol Readers
The Western Canadian reading public is made up chiefly of thi3se classes
Persons who have lived in the West for a lengthy period and are out and out
Westerners, and recent arrivals from the Old Country, from the United
States and from Eastern Canada.
Perhaps no one newspaper could eater with complete satisfaction to all these
classes, but by this combination offer every special need is met
The Weekly Free Press and Prairie Farmer gives a complete record week
by week of all happenings in the Western Provinces. In addition it has special
departments for American and British settlers. The Family Herald and
Weekly Star supplies the former resident of Eastern Canada with nows of the
Eastern portiou of the Dominion in detail, and the Grand Forks Sun provides
ocal and Boundary news, which you cannot do without.
Expose nol the secret failings of
mankind, otherwisa you must verily
bring scandal upon them and distrust
upon yourself.
When a person superior to what
thou art engages thee in conversation
do not contradict him, though thou
uiayest knuw better.
A piecu of crystal or glass is found
everywhere, and held of no value; a
ruby is obtained with difficulty, and
therefure inestimable.
The narrow-minded envierwill somehow manage to revile thee, who in
thy pre»ence might have the tongue of
his utterance struck dumb.
Whoever shall argue with one more
learned than himself that others may
take him fur a w'ise man, only con-
cHrms them iu his being a fool.
He can see no good who will asso-
aiatewith the wicked. Were an angel
from heaven to associate with a demon, he mould learn his brutality,
perfidy, and hypocrisy.
That man who reflects not before he
speaks will only niitke all thc more
improper answer. Either like a man
arrange thy speech with judgment,
or like a brute sit silent.
Life stands on the verge of a single
breath; and this world is an existence
between two nonentities. Such as
truck their deen, or religious practice,
for worldly pelf are asses.
The idle cannot endure  the  Indus
trious any more than tho curs of   tin
market place, who,  on   meeting   clogs
employed for sporting, will   snarl   at
and prevent them passing.
Whoever contends *, ith the great
sheds his own blood. Thou contem
platest thyself as a mighty great man;
and they liavetruly remarked that the
squinter sees double. Thou who canst
in play butt with a rain, mnst soon
find thyself with a broken pate.
It ia not every man that has a
handsome physicul exterior that hiis a
good moral character; for the faculty
of baseness or virtue resides in the
heart and not in the skin. Thou canst
in one day ascertain the intellectual
faculties of a man, and what proficiency he has made in his degrees of
learning; but lie not secure of his
mind, nor foolishly sure, for it may
take years to detect the innate baseness of his mind.

B. 0. Copper Oo. Will Close
A dispatch from Greenwood states
that the British Columbia Copper
company .vill close its Mother Lode
and Oro Denoro mines and the smelter at Gieenwood on or about April I.
The following notice, signed by the
general manager, J. E. McAllister,
has been posted: "Notice is hereby
given that owing to the unfavorable
condition of the copper market, the
mine and smelter of the British Columbia Copper Company, Limited, will
close on or before April 1, 1909, for
an indefinite period." Mr. McAllister says that the close down is the result of the price of copper, and us the
production of tha metal is apparently
exceeding the consumption, the prospects of an early improvement are not
brigut. All orders have been cancelled, and during the next ten days
the company will only operate to the
extent of cleaning up the smelter of
supplies on hand. The closing of the
plant will throw some four hundred
men out of employment. The Greenwood Miners' union made a voluntary
offer to the company to accept a 10
per cent reduction in wages, but the
company has taken no action in the
matter.
MINING MISCELLANY
The British Columbia Copper
company ban made tbe first payment of 10 per cent on tbe group of
claims whicb they bonded on tbe
17th of September in Wellington
i a up.
A dispatch from Boston says tbat
the stockholders of tbe Dominion
Cipper company holding 92,000
shares of stock, or nearly one-fifth j
of the total, have deposited their
stock and subscribed to the new income bonds on the basis of .$100 new
bonds for each one hundred shares
of stock held.
By a decision of the supreme
court of the United States the duty
is taken off zinc ores imported into
that country.
The Border Mining ifc Milling
company, capitalized for 810,000,-
U00, full paid and non assessable

Rheumatism, as everyone knows,
is a symptom of deranged kidneys.

failure of the kidneys to properly
filter and strnin from the blood the
uric acid and other matter, which, if
not eradicated either in the urine or
through the skin pores, femnins in
