The spring- meetings of the Farmers'  Institute ate being held at this season  throughout the Okanagan valley, and  on Friday, the 14th instant, a gathering of Penticton fruit growers and  business men listened to extremely  interesting addresses from Mr. Thomas  Earle of Lytton, B.C., and Major  James Sheppard of Queenston, Out.,  who discussed the various aspects of  fruit growing'in British Columbia,.  The meeting was held in the school,  house. \V. T.' Sliatford, managing  director of the Southern Okanagan  Land company, limited, was elected  chairman, and .George; E. Winkler,  secretary.  After a fitting though" brief reference  to the vast importance to all of southern British Ooliunbia of the subject  liitder consideration, the .chairman  called upon Mr. Earle to address the  meeting. To Mr. Earle belongs the  proud distinction of being the first  fruit grower in British Columbia. He.  came to this province from California  thirds full of earth and pour a pail of  water in it, and shape the roots in the  mud slightly. After letting it stand  half a day till the hole and pack the  earth tight. To decide the. shape of  your tree cut to a bud, throwing in or  out, according the way you wish the  tree to grow. Trees should lie pruned  properly in order to economize;, on  space.  As regards irrigating, it is well to  keep water on your orchard' until the  first of August so that your trees will  get their season's growth during tlie  proper months. If theydo nob grow  iii the spring fall rains are likely to  start them and they get winter killed.  Cultivation is extremely necessary,  and it is a good thing to grow vegetables in , your.-orchard- between the  trees, but cave should he taken..not to  plant too close to them. Trees make  nearly all then- growth, here in about  four 'months of each year.  Mr. Earle' closed by referring with  pride to the enviable 'reputation our  fruit is winning on all sides, mentioning in particular the gold medal British  Columbia fruit had won in 'London" in  competition with the world. It was  shown against fruit from Ontario,  Nova. Scotia, Australia and other  famous fruit growing countries.  When the fact was taken into consideration that when 'Mr. Earle came  to the province the. Okanagan.was  known only to a few Hudson's Bay  trappers thewonderful progress of the  district-was evident.   .  Major James Sheppard fit" Queenston,  on the Niagara peninsula., was.'.next  called upon by the. chairman. ' In  opening "he dealt with the question  of markets for British Columbia  fruit, 'arid,;,gave'   it   as    his ��������� opinion  general tiling the higher and colder  the altitude in which apples can lie  grown the better the flavor.       '  Questions regarding grape culture  were asked by Mr. R. H. Parkinson,  which-elicited some interesting particulars.     ,   .     : ' '  The speaker was constantly interrupted by eager questioners' who  wanted information about particular  varieties, or wished for  obscure [joints.  At the conclusion of Mi\ Sheppard's  ���������address, Price Ellison, M. P. P., of  Vernon, who was present, heartily  thanked the speakers' of the evening  for the information given, arid moved  a vote of thanks, which was seconded  by Mr. Parkinson.

HEDLEY,   -    ���������   B.6.  where he went in the gold rush of '19,  At present he has forty-live acres of  land under fruit near Lvtton in the  Thompson river valley. During all  those years that have, passed since he  first started to grow fruit Mr. Earle  has been a. constant and observant experimenter. As a consequence his  opinions are entitled to receive careful'  attention'.from the new generation of  fruit growers now rapidly filling this  portion of .British Columbia.  lie commenced by warmly defending the strict regulations of the board  of horticulture in its efforts to prevent  the entrance of destructive pests into  our orchards.  A discussion of the .merits and demerits of different kinds of apples was  next gone into and he strongly advised  the planting of only a few varieties for  market purposes. Out of 201)0 kinds  of apples only about ten should be  planted. Medium sized apples are  best for the Northwest markets and a  highly colored apple sells best because  of its attractive appearance.  For instance the Russet apple and  the Mammoth Pippin are good apples  and line keepers, but the Russet sells  at 20 cents a- box below the red-cheeked  apples. Surh'applos as the King and  Wolf River are extremely showy, but  too large to sell well.  By growing more fall .apples larger  quantities can be sold, the fall apples  meeting the. early demand and the  winter apples supplying the market  later. Among the late summer and  early fall apples the Williams, Favorite  and Jersey Sweet ranked high. The  Yellow Transparent is also a nice apple  but does not keep long.  The best fall   varieties  are   the   Mcintosh red, (jiravcnstciu and Wealthy.  For winter the Northern Spy is   itn-  o come   into   bear-  Spitzenberg is  a   line  apple!  land   the   Jonathan,   although   some-:  ! what small, is also good.    The Salome I  | is a first-class winter variety, and   the I  ! Stark is a very attractive  apple.    The j  J Newton   pippin   has   been   attracting j  i much   attention   and   is  an    excellent;  i apple, but grows slowly and is a sparse i  bearer.     In England   the  Orange   pip-|  ; pin is a very ready seller. i  ! Northern Spys should be planted HO;  ! feet a part and lillers grown hetween j  i which could be taken out when the j  | Spys begin to bear. I  j Peaches or plums make good fillers  ! and should be planted 20 feet apart in  j rows. Trees do not require to be as  I far apart in this country as in the east.  j With our climate you can plant 70  i trees to the acre.  I      In   putting   fruit-  on   the   market it  j must be in attractive packages.  Never  send out a box of fruit unless  you   are  I proud to see your name  on   it.    Trees  I here come into bearing  in   about   five  I years.    They should never  be planted  j in sod.    When transplanting  trees al-  i ways   be   careful   to  cut any injured  roots so that   the   fresh   wood   strikes  the ground, ami be sure and cut clean.  Tops   are   less  important   than  good  roots.    Two year old trees are all right  to plant, but one  year old   are  much  better,   and   experience   shows    that  nothing owr two year old   should be  set out.  In planting you should dig the hole  larger than the roots of your tree, and  cone your ground underneath, packing  the roots   tigbflv.    Fill  the  bole two  part   of.  growin  to  prove'"profitable because a very large  the west was unfitted for  fruit. It was perfectly safe  say that British Columbia fruit  growers could control the "market as  far east asAVinnipegv Compared with  the east, orchards in this country bear  younger and freer,  and  are. also free  froni.pests. 'With proper-jeare pests  could be' kept out. If a'man would  grow the proper varieties and give;the  business' the attention necessary he  could majte money.. There>.w is -little  danger of oyer doing' the =: fruit! trade.  There had been talk of over1 stocking  the market for years back east, but  orchards continue to be planted, on a  larger scale than ever. Good fruit,  well packed, will always find a market  as it creates' a demand for itself���������  croakers- to the contrary notwithstanding.  Owing to good apple crops in Europe  last year the price dropped as low as  fit) cents a barrel in the Niagara district.  In this* country we have no such competition to meet. '  Mr.   Sheppard   favored   the.   bench  lands in this country for fruitgrowing,  the soil being more sticky and clayey.  Sandy land is not so good as it lacks a  .subsoil  to act as an  anchor for the  trees.    A northern or eastern slope  is |  the -hist for apples, especially Avhere j  high winds from the southwest pre-1  vail.    There is also more loss from sun !  scalds on southern and western slopes, j  It is necessary to produce  largely  a j  few superior varieties in order to find  ready sale for apples;  mixed  lots are  not nearly as saleable.    Buyers often  want carloads of one variety.    Owing  to trees here" bearing so young and  so  heavily orchards 0 to 10 years  old are  often   practically destroyed,   whereas  apple trees should be good  for at least  50   years.     Big   apples   from    young-  trees, especially if grown  on   bottom  lands, are invariably lacking in flavor  and hurt the reputation of British Columbia fruit when marketed.    It is  a  great mistake to let young trees bear  heavily.    Trimming   .should   be  commenced   early   and   followed   up carefully and   systematically   in   order  to  prevent  over  bearing.    A   pyramidal  form   of  tree  is  preferable and limbs  should grow upwards  instead   of outwards   as   it   gives greater  strength.  It is best to cut the limbs a foot or  so  from the crotch in order   to   keep  the  trees reasonably low down.  Buds should be cut on   the Northern  Spy so  it   will   grow  outwards.    Five  years of such   trimming  will   prevent  breaking and it   is  well   to  remember!  that you cannot correct the negligence |  of live years by the industry of one.  As   compared   with   Ontario     fruit ;  British   Columbia    apples   are    better \  cleaner ami   better   parked,  ami Jonathans ',  Before a yard of track is laid the; two  big railway's, are to lock horns for the  ^Hmilkaiiieen passenger traffic. Jim  Hill will throw down the gage of  "J)attl(i!when his stage coach line is put  on in a.few days between .Hedley and  the Boundary. Many months before  the Great Northern started to build its  Phoenix .branch. Royer's stage line  carried passeugers out of Greenwood  and Phoenix to Grand Forks where  they met the Great Northern trains to  *and.froin Republic, and last week Mr.  Royermade a trip into the Siiuilka.-  meen with a view, to starting- a line  which'will cover the distance between  Kettle river and Hedlev in one dav.  This would not only beat the C.P.R.  on the Similkameen-Boundary traffic  by one day to four, but would also  give direct communication with Spokane and offer an alternate route  to the'coast.  Royer's stage service to Hedley will  begin in all probability on May 15th,  and hot later than May 22nd. Those  were-the dates which he mentioned  while in Hedley, and he is known to  be a thorough stage man who can be  counted on to carry out what he  undertakes.  PENTICTON NOTES.

Keffer   make    a  journey in company to any new mining,  camp it is well known  that  the B. C.  Copper  Company, 'either are or. are  about to be. intensely interested in  it,  and wlien they   are accompanied  by  W. N. Merriam and J. Kellerschon of  Duluth, who were connected with the  making   of   tubs  of money  from tlie'  operation of the  huge iron   mines of  the Mesabi and Vermillion ranges-.and  by William Anderson, .of the  Cascade  Wa ter Power and Light Conipany, the  visit is sure to  be  one"of more than'  idle curosity.     ��������� .".    ,  They  passed .through , Hedley   last  Thursday on  their way to Princeton,  taking lunch at Hedley.    On .,Friday  morning they left Princeton  for Copper mountain, taking with them sup- -  plies and a sampling outfit, and a most ���������  thorough and searching examination  of every-feature, upon  which   the'successful operation of a-mine   must   de-  ���������  peud, has been given.  Nothing has yet been .given out and  I neither will it be known What, the re-. ���������  J sultwill be until careful analyses have  '-been made of the .samples  taken;  hut'  there   is  a settled    conviction   about.  Princeton that it  is a go,  and   when  operated it will be on a scale so  large  that the experience  of  the   Boundary  will be more than repeated: for  while  the ore bodies of Copper mountain are  even greater in extent than   those of  Greenwood or Deadwood camps, in the  Boundary, the values.are higher,  vi hot's  camp.  Neither is it at the Sunset alone that  signs of great activity an; in evidence  for Voigt's camp  will  soon   be  heard  from in a way that will prove 'ah  eye-  opener to the whole district.    Here.ras  at the Sunset, are enormous bodies of  ore that could not be   worked  out   for'  generations, and that  the  values  are  sufficient to make great mines  there-  can be no ground for doubt,   for   Mr.  Voigt has had ample time and  is fully.  mining engineer to know  is doing.  \\   rcpresenta-  has  recentlv  on  the  lots  behind  his  looking,  while our Spitzenbei  arc better flavored.  The best of fruit may fail of a market  if poorly packed and particular attention should bo paid to this pha/.o of the  business. British'Columbia is far in  advance of eastern Canada as regards  packing. It is a short-sighted policy  to ship any but the best of fruit and it  would pay much better to destroy poor  fruit than to ship it as such fruit hurts  the reputation of your section.  The handling of second grade fruit  to advantage is a problem that must  soon bedeaitwith in this country and  either can iters or evaporators will be  necessary in order to care for it.  Second class fruit when done up in  this way is quite as good its first class.  Mr. Sheppard expressed doubts as  to whether the Delta district would  ever produce Al fruit as it is impossible to groiv good flavored apples on  trees planted in a peat soil close to the  water line.  As-the trees get older the quality of  the fruit should improve.    Taken as a  built a stable  dwelling.  W. T. Sliatford, managing director  of the Southern Okanagan Land Company, Ltd., paid Vernon a short visit-  last week.  G. S. M'ohr returned on Friday's  boat from a short visit to Enderhy  where he went to look after a mining  deal being made on a property in  which he is interested.  Harvey Tingley of Hedley pui chased  a ticket for some town in the Northwest a few days ago. When questioned ;ts to his business there his replies wore evasive and unsatisfactory,  so your correspondent has reasons to  fear the worst.  The Maud Moore, with Captain Lawrence in charge, took a crowd of Penticton folks to Suininerland on Tuesday, the 25th iusl. to attend a concert  given by the Sunuueiiand brass band.

A.  smelter too is.one of the projects for  the near future which will mark the  operations of Mr. Voigt's company,  and everything points to very stirring  times in that camp, which the Gazette  visited a i'cw days ago.  WEST   FORK   ITEMS.    *  Tuzo and his partners have struck a  ledge of high grade ore on the Iron  Horse located in Currv gulch.  K. G.

The seven stamps at-t he Carmi are  pounding away and turning out the  yellow stulV 'and lots of it. Robert  Longley experts to start working the-  mine about the first, of May and running the mill day and night.  Thomas King and Hugh McKay are  driving a crosscut,on the Colorado for  an interest in the properly. They expert to cut the ledge in about 175 feet.  On the surface the ledge is three feet-  wide and assays as high as i '00 ounces  in silver.  Clement Varher has all  can g< t at work on the  from    Beaverdell    to   the  the men he  wagon road  Sally mine,  where he has two carloads of firstclass  ore sacked ready for shipment, it is  understood that the Sally people intend working the mine all summer and  make regular shipments.  W. II. Ram ho has a force of men at  work on the Rambler mine driving a  crosscut at the 50 foot level. He'expects to crosscut the ledge in about 20  feet, and intends making the Rambler  class among the steady shippers of  Wallace mountain this coining fall and  winter. Last winter the 'Rambler  shipped two cars of ore that netted  $82 per ton. THIS MEDLEY GAZETTE.

They  obtained some, beaver, -considerable,  mink and some other fur and seemed  to thrive on bannocks and bacon and  the spoils of the chase'  The presence of contractor W. C.  McLean of Nelson in the upper Similkaineen valley last week has been interpreted as an indication that the C P. R.  intend building in from Silence's  Bridge. But others are of opinion  that private huisness alone will account for his visit.  Kilknockie is the name of the Armstrong ranch down on the lower  Similkaineen. Had it been Kill-  knocker it would be the spot to send  some of the' real estate men in the.  upper Okanagan.

Jim McLean reports business in the Boundary  to be very good. He has generally appeared on the scent/ in the early stages  of every local hustle. The Gazette  met hint first in Vernon in the early  nineties, in Rossland in '97, and in  Greenwood in 'HI), and his hurried trip  to the Similkaineen last week felt like  u. visit from the robins in the spring  time, for Jim is a precursor of good  times���������and post-curser if they happen  to go bad again,  portuned to publish it, we admit that  we should not have done so without  ascertaining all the circumstances.  Like the. passerby who interfered between a man anil wife who were fighting and found out that he had himself  to light the two of them, it was unwise of the Gazette to mix up in what  was apparently a grit family quarrel,  for in doing so it is quite possible that  an injustice was done Mi-. Wright  who, possibly smarting under what he  considered an injustice, wrote sentences that he is now ashamed of.

BOUNDARY   SURVEY"  THE WORK,IS TO BE RESUMED  ON THE FIRST OF MAY.  Roughest   Part   of the   Work is  to be j  Done   This   Year.  Is  A  Good,  Safe   Investment  N. J. Ogilvie,  ( Kossl;mi,l .Minor.)  a member of the International Boundary survey, is here from  Ottawa for  the  purpose  of  resuming  the work of delimiting  the  boundary  line.    This work.has.been  in  progress  since the spring oflOUS, and  will  continue for the. coining two years.    Mr.  Ogilvie says  thai  the  work   is   being  jointly   condii- Led   by Canadian  and  American surv.-y parties.    At present  lie is getting <���������.   i ytliing in shape for a  -resumption i.u i^-.'survey on or about  .May I.

The first 'work  tube  done   tins  year, will   be   in   the  vicinity of  the'-iVtid  d'Oreill'e  river,  and-it  will   be o.'iitinued   west J'roiii  there towards  tlie coast.    A   part of  the. survey   this   year   will   be   in   the  Skagit country in the. Cascade mountains.    Tliis is. tin.' wildest and   rough-  c" est. country through which the survey  runs front the Atlantic to the   Pacific,  owing to the  heavy  timber and   the  ruggedness of the country.  ���������;i\*h(.!ii asked, if any discrepancies had  been found between   the survey  that  was made of the  international   boundary. HO years ago and the present survey. Mr.  Ogilvie  replied  that so far  not1 a  single  error  had   been   found.  The old time surveyors,   he said,  did  their work exceedingly well.     The old  survey commission placed monuments  on the tilth parallel in   some  places a  mile-apart   and   in   others   25   miles  apart.    The.present survey consists of  proving the correctness of the location  of these monuments and the runningof j  straight lines from one monument to i  the other and the placing of, new nion- j  tunents, besides the cutting of a  sky- ���������  line 20 feet wide through  the  timber. '���������  The new monuments must not be  less !  than a mile apart nor more than   four'j  miles.    The work, he says, has been in ,'  progress since the sirring" oF'IOuH  and \  will take, all of this year and  next to  finish it.    The. Americans  have; some  work to finish  near the coast.

Lugriu, who litis an incurable dose of the itch for scribbling,  is tobe found at all times and on all  conceivable, subjects in the columns  of coast dailies, laboring to mould  public opinion. His latest attempt at  opinion moulding was when he tried  to persuade the. people of B.C. to compel the government to give Morse, of  the G. T. P., a big land"grant. Well,  the government didn't give any, and  Mr. Lugrin couldn't be silent but must  write still another letter to upbraid  them by asking them "what we've got  from the Grand Trunk people ?"
