How to Plant and Cultivate Them
Tbe Demands of the Market
Will Not Be Met for
Tbere are few sections in British
Columbia io wbich the growing of
•small fruits is not practised to eome
extent. Climatic and soil conditiins
in most sections are especially favor
able to tbeir production. Tbe crop
of 1911' wait far short of tbe market
requirements, and indications are
that the market demands will not be
met for some years. With the in
creased quantities being u.ed in the
canning and jam factories, tbe increasing demand in the prairie provinces and in our local markets, a
good incentive is afforded for an increased production.
To tbe man who goes into fruit
raising with the purpose of obtaining sufficient remuneration to provide for himself and family, and
who bas very little capital other
than what is required for tha, pur
chase of bis ranch, the production
of small fruits offers bim a means of
livelihood until such times as his
tree fruits come into profitable bear
ing. It also affordb bim an opportunity to remain on bis ranch during tbe early years of its development, and thus ensures better treatment for bis trees and otber crops.
' The first few years in tbe life of an
orchard is a critical one, so this is
an important consideration.
Some of the main points to be considered before setting out a small
fruit plantation are:
.1. Proximity to transportation
lines, markets and canning and jam
2, Sufficient labor available at
harvesting time and for the proper
care of tbe plantation. Do not plant
any more than can be properly cared
for, ns the profitable small fruit
plantaiions are those whicb rtc Ire
the best of care.
.1. Is ymir soil of a type and in a
rondiiion in wbich it will produce a
good crop of small fruits? (This has
special reference to non-irrigated
districts )
4. Are you in a district wbere
small fruits are giown to any extent?
The larger the production in a district the better aro the facilities for
marketing, as a general rule.
Strawberries—Ths best soils for a
strawberry plantation are a sandy
loam, loam, or clay loam, well sup-
|ilii*d wi b organic matter. Straw-
li. iru's require a large amount of
moisture and a good supply of plant
food for profitable culture. Soil tbat
does not drain well should be under-
drained. Where the soil is light it
wonld* be advisable to grow and
plow under a green crop, preferable
of a leguminous nature, before
planting. Fall plowing to a good
depth, and in heavy soils the use of
a sub toiler, is advisable, especially
in districts which bave a heavy pre
cipitation in fall and winter, and a
fairly dry summer.
As soon ae tbe ground is dry
enough in spring to work it, cultivate it well in the same manner as
you would to obtain a good seed bed.
A good soil mulch should be kept
ou the ground until tbe plants are
Propagation—Plants are obtained
from tbe bearing patch by thking
the new plants wbich bave set on
the runners. It is advisable to use
only ibe first two plants on a run
ner coming from a bearing plant, so
as to ensure good strong ones. Tbose
farther distant are as a rule poorly
It is a good plan to set apart a
section of the patch for the prodtic
tion of new plants. By noting care
fully in the bearing patch tbe bear
ing habits, yield, growth, strength
of vine, etc., of the different plants,
you can pick out those which come
nearest your ideal and use their
runner plants for yonr propagating
section. Where tbis system is prac
ticed abetter class of larger yielding
plants are generally obtained.
Planting—This can be done either
in the fall or spring, depending
largely on tbe condition of the soil
and the time of the grower. Spring
planting is generally recommeuded
Tbere are several systems of piloting, some of wbich are: Tbe matted
row, tbe double row and the Hill
systems. With tbe matted row
system the plants are set about 18
inches apart in the rows, with the
rows 40 inches to four feet apari.
Tbe runners are kept off until about
tbe 1st , of June, after wbich they
are allowed to set and make a matted row. With tbis system it is advisable not to allow tbe runners to
sst leas than six inches apart or the
rows to be over two feet wide. With
tbe double row system the plants
are set about 18 inches apart with
tbe rowB 36 to 40 ihcbis. Four
runners from eacb plant are allowed
to start, each producing one plant,
two of wbich are placed on either
Bide of the main plant, thus making
a double row. Witb tbe Hill sys
tern tbe plants are usually placed 18
inches apart in the row with the
rows three feet apart. No runners
ire allowed to form. The distance
for planting varies witb tbe condition of the soil, with the distriet,
and the variety planted. In compar
ing the results obtained from tbe
tbree syste-ns tbe Hill system seems
to be giving the best satisfaction in
tbe non irrigated districts wbere the
summers are dry and where the
early market berry Is not desired. A
better size, berry can be produced,
tbe patch is more easily kept clean,
less moisture is required, and tbe
crop is often as large as is produced
under the other systems. In tbe dry
belt and in districts and on sites
where tbe early varieties such as
Senator Dunlop are grown, the
matted row system is mainly used.
It matures the fruit a few days
earlier tban the Hill Byslem. Some
growers'claim tbat the matted row
is less subject to injury by frost, but
in districts where frost injury is
probable, tbe plantation should be
protected by a mulch.
Planting should be done only after
tbe ground has been thoroughly prepared. Some of the main points to
be observed in planting are:
1. Plant only in straight rows.
For this purpose a marker, wire or
line should be used.

2. Keep tbe plants fresh between
the time thev are removed from tbe
ground until they are planted in tbe
new patch.
3. Use only good, strong plants.
4. If there are any large leaves on
the plants it is advisable to remove
them, leaving only two or thiee of
the small ooes. Trim off any black
or diseased roots, and if the root
system is very large, it is better to
shorten it.
5. Pack the soil firmly sr.und
the roots and make eure that tbe
crown of the plant is level with tbe
surface of the ground. Do not cover
tbs crown or leave nny of tbe roots
Cultivation should begin immediately after planting and he kept dp
until the early fall. Two or three
inches deep ia sufficient in moat
soils. Deep cultivation, ,t specially
in the young patch, is to bc discouraged. All blossoms should be kept
off the first year. On soils, and in
districts where the plants are in danger of being injured during the win
ter, it is advisable to protect them
witb a covering of straw, prairie
hay, or soms cheap material con
tainine no weed seeds. Most damage is done in early spring tbrough
the alternate freezing and thawing of
tbe ground, so the covering should
not be removed too early. This can
be lefl between tbe rows to act as a
mulch until the crop is harvested.
Successful growers seldom take
more than two crops from a plantation, nfter which it is plowed under.
The cost of production is usually
higher as the plantations become
older. Soms varieties have imperfect flowers and require another variety in tbs patch to ensure pollination. Make sure of tbis point bo-

Picturesque Rulers to Whose Power
George V. Has Succeeded
The Coronntlon of George V. at Delhi, the city of the Great Moguls, made
him heir and successor to their Imperial power, says the Knglish
Queen. The history of these his predecessors is one of strange contrasts.
First of the Great Moguls was Tamerlane, the mighty conqueror, a type
of overweening urrogance, unrestrained by nny fear ol' God or man. In
Marlowe's drama he kills his son Ca-
lyphas, for skulking from the buttle,
nnd with insensate fury urges on the
captive kings who draw his chariot.
The sombre story is only relieved by
the tenderness of the fierce wrrior

grief when she Is lost lo him by dajuali.

palace trusting vainly to the old proverb:—"It Is u far cry to Delhi."

the city was taken, but Tamerlane

Babar the Adventurer was the most
fascinating of his race. Poet, philosopher, artist and musician, he was
skilled in the lore of nature and in
the knowledge of men. Withal he
set himself to become a strong military leader and. chose Tamerlane as

l.lon of the Uajputs, minus an eye and
an arm a'nd'lame of one leg," and won
that great victory of India over Hin-
doolsm by which was achieved the
great Kmpire of the Great Moguls in
His ambition accomplished Babar
lived for three years at the palace of
Agra, ruling his newly acquired country with justice and severity. No romance threw Its glamor over Barbar's
union with his wife.' All his affection was lavished on bis three daughters, Kose-face, Hose-blush and Kose-
body, and on his son Humayon, for
whom he is said to have given his
life. As tlie young man lay sick, at
Agra, the loechi s declared mat he

Health Hints
Having consulted William .Muldooi.,"
Kngene Sandow, Dr. Woods- Hutchinson, Pierpont Morgan, Mayor Gaynor,
Dr. William Robinson, Upton Sinclair,
and many other well-known authorities on health, we are enabled to present the following rules, these being
the latest concensus of opinion:
• .Eat nothing.
Eat everything you.want.
Walk at leaBt ton mileB a day.
Do not stir unless you ride in ai carriage or some other vehicle.        1
Den't worry. \
It is absoultely necessary that you
study yourself. Remember, you are
an animal.
Chew food until nothing remains.
Bolt everything. Only iu this way
will you keep your stomach strong.
Never go on a vacation.
Change is absolutely necessary.
Eschew alcohol and tobacco.
Smoke all you want to, drink everything.
Keep cool.
Perspire profusely.
Successful Appeal
A college graduate, after years of
almost unbelievable misfortunes, decided to appeal to a classmate who
had been very successful. He sought
out the rich banker and was soon escorted into his presence. The banker,
Impressed by jhe signs of suffering
and misfortune It. both the face and
clothing of his old associate, said in
a shocked manner:
"Goodness, man, what haB happened
to you?"
The unfortunate one began to toll
his story. He passed from one disaster to another. He told of the loss
of his wife, of the unfortunate speculation that had left him penniless, of
broken health, of the death of hie only-
son, and of his future search for employment. As the tale unfolded tlie
banker's eyes began to dim with tears.
His shoulders shook with sobs. He
arose and walked unsteadily to a bell.
A porter entered ln response to the
summons, and tho banker said to him
"James, throw this man out. He is
breaking my heart."

Matrimony Course for Girls
Years ago Sir W. S. Gilbert depicted
a school of matrimony for young men.
The Jack in search of his Jill "should
prentice himself at fourteen and
study from morning till e'en." 'Twas
purely a matter, of skill, which all
might attain if they willed.
In Los Angeles, California, there Ib
an evident belief that what- is sauce
tor the gander Ib equally sauce for the
goose. The announcement is made
that a course of matrimony has been
included in the curriculum of the
Gardens Agricultural High School.
According to a despatch to the "New
York World," five classes of girls are
daily taking advantage of instruction
in courtship, matrimony, the care ot
babies, mother craft and domestic
"It Ib planned," we read, "that boys
in Los Angeles shall bo permitted to
take tho course next year, but some
doubt is expressed about the ueed of
this. It is regarded that lhe 'female
ot the species' will bc bo adept in the
matter of courtship and matrimony
by lhe end nf lhe year that she will
have little difficulty in imparting her
knowledge to the less deadly male.
"The girls aro taught how to deport
iheniBelves during courtBhip, and instructed lu household management,
house dlelies, housekeeping accounts, dressmaking, millinery, and
even in such practical matters as how

work and how much they should be

The Best Way is to Laugh
Trouble comes to all of us, but they
come least heavily to those who meet
them with a good humor and fight
them dowu.
The best way to drive dull care
away is with a laugh, for It hates
merriment, and vanishes in tho sunshine of a smile.
If you are worried from overwork,
take a rest, read, walk, and try to forget your cares.
If you are gloomy and sad, seek the
society of peoplo who are not, and let
them charm your sombre inood away.
The worst misfortune that can befall a man Is to surrender himself to
a morbid brooding over his cares.

that of absent-mindedness.
He visited his married, nephew /he

young wife's praise of ber first born.
The gentleman felt that he must sat

he was interested.
"Can the.dear little fellow walk*}"
he Inquired quietly. •   -
"Walk," the mother cried indignantly. "Why, ho has-been walking for
five months."
"Dear me!" the professor exclaimed,
lapsing again into abstraction, "what
a long way be must have got."

A Magistrate's Wonderful Experience
-With Zam-Buk.
Mr. J. E. Arsnault, a Justice of
the Peace, and stationmaBter at Wellington, on the Prince Edward Island
Rj., has had a wonderful proof of the
healing power of Zam-Buk. He eayB.
"Four years- ago, I had an accident.
I slipped in the station aud tell on a
freight truck, sustaining a bad'cut on
tho front ot my leg. I thought this
would heal, but instead of doing bo
lt developed Into a bad ulcer and later
Into a form ot eczema which spread
very rapidly and also started on the
other- leg. Both legs became so swollen and sore that I could only go about
my work by having them bandaged.
My doctor said I must slop work and
lay up.
"After six months of this trouble
I consulted another doctor, but with
no better result. I tried all the salves,
liniments and lotions I heard of, but
Instead of getting better I got worse.
"This was my condition when 1 got
mf first box of Zam-Buk. Greatly to
my delight that first box gave me relief. I continued to apply It to the
sores, and day by day they got better. I could see that at last I had got
hold of something that would cure
mo, and In the end it did.
"It is now over a year since Zam-
Buk Worked a cure In my case, and
there has beeu no return of the eczema or any trace of It."
Such is the nature of the great cures
which Zam-Buk Is daily effecting.
Purely herbal in composition, this
grcat-.balm Is a sure cure for all skin
diseases, cold sores, chapped hands,

Rain fell on fi^ur daiys, anils now fell
on one day (19th), and frost occurred
on 22 days. Ou -several mornings
during the frost the water pipe was
frozen. Heavy charges of stumping
powder are being continually fired
during the daytime. Except for the
heaviest concussions, the birds do
not seem to be disturbed as fur us
Class 11 is concerned. The lightweights do uot stand the noise so
well. It is evident that the•> egg
yields from the whole pens has been
seriously affected by these ' adverse
Considerable changes will be noted
in the various pens' positions siuce
last month. Pen 3 has dropped from
fourth to sixth place and has been
replaced by Pen 14. Pen 10 hus
climbed two notches and Pen 5 has
dropped two. Pen 20 has jumped
over four competitors.
The star performers in Class I for
ths month were Pen 2, 98 eggs: Pen
9, 88 eggs; Pens 4 und 20, 84 eggs
apiece: Pens 10 and 14, 80 eggsapiece;
Pen 8, 74 eggs; Pen 12, 73 eggs;Pens
17, 7 and 19, 69 eggs; Pens 16 and
22, 06 eggs.
The following pens deserve special
mention for having laid six eggs in
one day: Pen 8, t*ice; Pens, 9j 10,
12, 14, 18 und 21, once each.
Owing to the confined quarters,
feather eating has been rife among
the   pens   com prising  Cluaw I.   The
principal offenders have been Pens 22,
1, 9, 10, 3, 4, 2, 6. Birds in each
pen have been successfully treated
with a mixture of pure lard and Bar-
badoes aloes. This pernicious habit
has been found very hard to treat,
owing to the fact that the birds can
not be removed from the pens, because of jeopardizing their egg yields.
During the month (29 days), a
greut variance in food consnuiption
and results has been noted. For instance, Pen 40, producing 88 eggs, ate
only one pound more fowl than Pen
28, which produced only 18 eggs, nnd
Pen 2, while laying 98 eggs.consumed
two pounds more than Pen 1, which
produced 45 eggs.
Just one hundredweight of clam
shells was consumed during the
- In Class II even greater changes
have taken place. For the first time
luring the contest Pen 40 have had
lo yield up the premier position. By
inly producing 28 eggs during, the
mouth, they have dropped to fifth
place. The eggs from this pen have
bjen even smaller duriug the past
minth than previously. Pen 39 have
clruwn away from the pens succeeding. Their performance during the
month hus been the more praiseworthy
owing to the fact thlit three bn.ody
hens had to be removed. These were
broken up very easily; in fact, all the
broodies have been returned to their
respective pens within tnree days of
their removal. The following pens
have supplied broodies during the
month: 39 (3-). 'JG (*.), 31, 35,25
(1 euch).
The following pens have bettered
their positions: 39. 38, 38, 25 (1 hen
short for 9 days) 30.
The fa.loving are tho" month's
henviest producers: 39 (88 eggs), 33
(77), 38 (74), 20 (72), 31 (71), U
(69), and 25 (G6).

iln; best picture ever offered newspaper reader*. It is entitled "Home
Again'! and describes a touching but joyful incident between two friends
wbo meet after anxious separation. e
"Imddie," a collio dog, famous for his beauty and gentleness, winners
of many prlau at dog snows, the pride ol the family and neighborhood,
has been stolen, and after many days' absence lie escapes one night from
bis eaplor and returns homo on a snowy winter's morning with the rope
whieh he broke in his struggles for freedom dangling from bis collar.
His familiar bark brings his little mistress, Marjorie, to thc door and
she throws ber arms around her trusty playmate's neck with cries of joy
which bring hor mother and brother to the door. "Laddie" is equally
delighted to be "Home Again," and answers her welcome by putting his
paws on her shoulder and resting his head against her breast with a little
whine, whicb in his dog language means—"Where I love is Home."
The sweet-faced young mother, a woman of soft curves, tender eyes
nnal parted lips—the two glad-eyed children—an eager boy witb hair like
lifl mother's and the quick gesture of excited boyhood; the warm-hearted
girl with rippling locks, her affectionate arms around the shaggy neck of
the beautiful collie, all go to form a picture that will win a favored place
on the walla of any home.
The picture is by the celebrated artist, Arthur J, Bisley, famous for
bis skilful and sympathetic painting of children and animals.

unsophisticated diners when faced
with highly unsophisticated menu
cards are endless and usually amusing. A man whose career had confined his Knowledge of things to eat
to such standard produces aB ham and
eggs and pork and beans found himself among a company who ordered intelligently from an extensive bill of
tare, lt contains so many classified
dishes tliat lt mnkes a fair-sized book,
thc pages of which he paved aimlessly and in dismay. The waiter, who
needed only his order to go to the
kitchen was standing at one side deferentially, with his order slip and
pencil in hand. The delay was noticeable and Irritating to tlie unskilled
diner, and finally he pointed blindly
to the middle ot thc page with hia
"Give me some of that," he said.
The waiter looked over his Blioulder
and remarked:—
"That's Mayonnaise dressing, sir."
"I know it, I can read."
"But," apologetically, "what will
you have It on?"
"On a plate, you bonehead. Do you

And the Sin of Omission Alice.
Charged Against Herself.
Elinor for the flrst time in ber life
was looking the future squarely in the
eye. Hitherto she bad been content to
nibble at life, munching away conteut-
edly enough, satlsfled with the joy ot

because tben, by common consent,
time moves up a number,. Tbls particular June 3 made aii indelible Impression on Elinor's mlud because on tbat
dny sbe began to be thirty-two-began
at the very beginning, of course, but
still she begun.
"I shall soy I'm thirty-one all tbls
year anyway,;' she announced defiantly to that other self that receives onr
dearest confidences. "It's such bad
form to Boy you're thirty-one years
and two months old, or whatever lt
may happen to be. And If I hare to
write It I'll make It thirty-one In round
numbers-not even thirty-one plus."
All of vejiich, as Ibe reader can see,
was very unscrupulous.
However, as she fouud, by far tbe
worst thing about beginning to bo
thirty-two was tbe fact tbat you
couldn't -forget It.'' The harder you
tried tbe better you remembered It.
"Well, wbat if I am?"
This wns the remark that our heroine slung luto space wben. after a
week of torment, she sat down with
her chin resting ou ber hands to have
the thing out "What If I am? So

She paused In her enumeration, struck
by tbe thought thnt nil these friends
wore married. Matrimony was it subject to which sbe bad given the minimum of thought She supposed sbe'd
come to it some time, but sbe was ln
no hurry to enter that narrow pasture
so long os there was pleasant browsing

for sandwiches. Fried bam ground-Una
Is always more savory than boiled bam
for sandwiches. In fact, some persons
fry the chicken which they aro going
to use for sandwiches ln order to get
the delicate browned flavor. The potted meats wblcb come for sandwich
fillings are more delicious If tbey sre
mixed liberally wltb mayonnaise dressing. And tbese same potted meats are
useful In croquettes, souffles and other
