While the  total production thistyear is estimated  to be, 25 per cent less than last year,  the number of crates (103,000) will  be about the same on account of many  growers'.using the full pint crate which  holds but 18 pounds of fruit, while the  4-5 quart crate in general use last  year held 24 pounds of fruit. About  one-half of the Kootenay production  usually goes to the'eanneries, but may  be shipped if the prices remain high.  Spring frosts, dry weather during April and May and weevils are mainly responsible for the decreased yields.,, A  similar decrease is reported in most  of the districts in Washington.  Owing to the decreased production  and organized marketing, prices are  from one-half to three-fourths more  than was realized last year." The first  berries reached"the market about two  weeks ahead of last year.  Raspberries.���������The yield is reported  equal to that of last year in all sections but Salmon'Arm and Armstrong  which show slight increases. A production equal" to" 60,000 crates is expected, however, the actual number of  crates may be less on account of "the  full pint crate being used in place of  the 2-5 quart crate formerly used. -  Other berries.���������Logan berries, blackberries, and other small fruits, with  the exception of red and black currents, are in good condition and the  production will be equal to that of  1914.  Cherries.���������The decreased production  on -the coast will almost be offset by  the increase in the interior, making a  total production equal to that in 1914.  All varieties are fruiting. About'35,-  000 crates are expected, one-half of  which will be sour cherries.

I  still good for a crop equal to, if not  greater than 'that of 1914. There  is a light crop of Elbertas. About  120,000 crates of peaches are expected.  Apricots.���������Last year the production  of apricots in the Okanagan was about  41,000 crates, 16,000 . of which were  shipped, and over 200 tons /were used  in the canning factories. This year a  larger production is expected.  Plumbs and Peaches.���������Prospects are  better for a plumb crop than was formerly reported. Prunes are also setting well and the production will nearly equal that of last year. About  200,000 crates of plumbs and prunes  are expected.  Pears.���������The pear crop will be about  25. per cent greater than last year.  35,000 boxes are expected. Scab is  reported troublesome o'n some varieties.  Apples.���������Vernon .and West Kootenay  points report slight increases while  other sections, except the coast, will  have a decreased production. The  coast apple crop will be about equal  to that of last year. In general the  old orchards in the Province have a  lighter crop than last year, but the  young trees are expected to bring the  total production to 650,000 boxes, or  about 35,000 less than last year.  Scab and aphis injury is reported  from all parts of the Province. Peach  leaf-curl is bad in the Okanagan, and  grasshoppers, cutworms and caterpillars are reported injurious in several  sections.    As yet there is little fire-  blight showing.  In the Northwestern States decreases in the apple crops of from 10 to 40  per cent are reported. The general  opinion is that the production will fall  between SO and 85 per cent of the 1914  crop. The pear crop will be larger  than in 1914.  ' Vegetables  Potatoes.���������All sections of B. C. show  a decided increase in the acreage. Last  year only 13,350 acres were reported  but the 1915 acreage will reach 15,-  000 acres. The prospects for a good  yield-are reported from all districts.-  Onions.���������The acreage is slightly  greater than last year totaling about  440 acres. Good yields are expected.  Cabbage.���������The acreage will be the  same as last year. About 225 acres  are reported.  Tomatoes.���������All sections show a decreased acreage. This is due probably  to many factories being closed. The  1915 acreage is reported to be 2S0  acres as compared with 455 in 1914.  Beans.���������The same area of beans is  reported as in 1914. Frost has done  some damage to the early plantings.  Celery.���������The area in celery has decreased from about 70 acres last j-ear  to 58 this year.  Plantings of other vegetables are reported slightly in excess of last year,  and are reported to be iii good condition.  x Canneries  1  Present indications are that few  canneries will operate. This means  there will be a large amount of fruit  previously used by the -canneries and  jam factories, to be disposed of  through other channels. It will include apricots, peaches, plumbs and  prunes, and tomatoes. Combined efforts should be made to find a market  for this product, otherwise much of it  will be wasted.  R. M. WINSLOW,  Provincial Horticulturist.  Victoria, B. C.  The following interesting letter was  received recently by Mr. D. McCurdy,  of Keremeos, from his son Bob who  is now in a hospital in England recovering from wounds received while,in  the fighting line." Later news from  him have been received in which he  says thab he will soon be ready to try  conclusions with the Germans again.  The letter is ns follows:  , -Lincoln, Eng., June 2, 1915.  Dear Dad,��������� *   t  Just a few lines as I am' not too bad  now. T have lost'niy righb eye and  have a few more small wounds but nob  bad. I can see fairly well with my  left eye, and have the use of my hands  and feet, and my cheek bone which  was shattered a bit is nearly well so  that I can eat without much pain, and  my appetite would keep an army  transport busy carrying bully beef and  biscuib to me were I in the trenches.  But here I am well fed and am getting  fine treatment; and one thing that always eases my mind is the fact that  we won the position we went after,  though the cost was pretty heavy. I  can't say how the rest of the Keicmeos  five fared,'bub Sid, Bob and Billy were  still atanding when I went down. I  have not been able to learn anything  of them since. We will hope they  came out, though we must nob expecb  that they all came out without a  scratch,' for men were fulling thick and  fast that night; it was bhe 20th of May  at a place near La Bassa. When I  came to my.- senses there were two  braves lying on top of me; I did not  know them; one was dead, and the  other���������what ,was left of him���������was dying; so I got from under them and  crawled out the best I could over the  dead and dying, which were about in  hundreds. As the stretcher-bearers  were bery busy I did not bother them  but turned stretcher-bearer myself and  assisted another poor chap I knew to  get along to the first aid dressing sta  tion about 1.1-2 miles behind the lines.  It was cruel work as the shells were  dropping in hundreds about us all the  way, and for some distance the machine gun fire rained on us like hail.  Great music; it helps a fellow to move.  Many a poor chap gets killed rnakiug  his way out after being wounded. The  Huns kill the wounded as well you  know. If they can't get them with  shot and shell they try gas on them;  they tried the gas that' nighb, bub for-  bunabely the wind would not carry ib.  Well I must stop now as my good  lamp is a little weak and nurse says,  "Out it out for today." However, I'll  say this, I am proud to be a Canadian;  any man who goes through thab hell  and sbill has his life, ib matters nob  what'portions of his body are gone,  should thank his lucky stars-and the  Great Almighty.    So long,  Bob.  ENJOYABLE SMOKER HELD  Programme Consisted of Boxing Bouts,  Songs, Step Dancing and Music  by the Brass Band.  The patriotic smoker held in the  opera house on Saturday night for the  purpose of raising funds to buy tobacco to send to the B. C. boys at bhe  front, proved to be a very successful  affair, both for the onlookers and for  the tobocco fund. The brass band was  there and rendered ������i few selections  during the evening.  Several very interesting bouts were  called on and responded' to by local  exponents of, the fistic art. The first  two bo enber bhe squared circle were  Bob Roberbson and Les Robertson, and  a fair exhibition of boxing was given  by them. Then followed two juniors  in the persons of Wesley Lyon and -  Garnett Luke. Others matched were:  Geo. Lyon and Jas. Murdock; M. J.  Mehar (Yorky) and .Tom Terry; Bert  Schubert and Les Robertson, and Jack,,  Lbrenzetto and a hoy fiom the Keremeos reservation.  In  each  event the exhibitions were  very entertaining and amusing. There  were no "knockouts," although some  .  of the boys looked a little the worse  for weat the following day.  Over $70.00 was netted from the proceeds of this smoker, which will help  considerably in supplying our boys atf  the front.with "smokes." It is proposed to hold these smokers monthly,  although the date of the next one has  not yet been decided upon.  HIS TONGUE CUT OUT  -" That his tongue had been cut out  by the Germans by whom he had been  taken prisoner was the message conveyed under the stamp of a letter  written to Miss Boyle, sister of A.  Boyle of Revelstoke, by a friend who  had been fighting at the front. "Keep  the stamp as a souvenir," said the letter from the prisoner of war. Miss  Boyle, suspecting bhat a message was  concealed under the stamp, removed  it from the envelope. Under the stamp  was the message "They have cut my  tongue out."  NEW C. P. R.

The Dominion is calling for  35,000 new recruit:-' +o replenish  and augment the Canadian units  now in France.  The response should be immediate and complete.  Xo nobler cause ever made its  demand upon the youth of any  nation in all the world's long  history.  The fight is for Freedom, for  Humanity; for Triumph of  Democracy over the Military  Machine.  !No young Canadian caii give  his services and his life, if need  be, in a better cause.  Great Britain must win this  Avar if the cause of Human  Liberty is to prevail.  And to win it she must have  every man and all help that  Canada can give her. ���������  The men who have already  left these shqres to bear their  part in the struggle have done,  and are doing, their part* nobly  and well.  They have place the name of  Canada high in the annals of  the universe; they have set a  worthy mark for the emulation  of those who come after.  They are now calling for  their comrades to come to their  assistance, and their call will  not go unheeded.  The call should find this province first and readiest to respond.  Not only your King and  Country but the Cause of Humanity itself is calling you.���������  Winnipeg Telegram.  A Study in Efficiency.  A writer  in  The  New  York  Independent has   been  discussing the, efficiency  of what lie  ungrammatically,   but    in    accordance with universal usage,  calls a   "setting  hen,"  and   hcis  reached the conclusion  that  it  verges   on   a   minus   quantity.  He says that to hatch  a   brood  of chicks and bring them up to  an age when, in her judgment,  they are fit to look after themselves,   requires  the    attention  of a hen for at least nine weeks.  He applauds the ambition of a  hen to ivii.se a family, but thinks  it ought to be diverted into another  channel,  and  he  asserts  that, if she is shut up by herself  in a   lattice  crate, for a   week,  she will forget her maternal as-  XJirations and   take  once  more  to the laying of eggs.    He says  she will lay fifty-four eggs during the time  she 'would   otherwise be   hatching  and  scratching and clucking around.    Thus  she will show at the end of nine  weeks a dollar's worth of eggs  instead of the  reninant.'of  her  brood that have  survived   the  perils of chickens infancy.    He  tells us that an electric incubator will hatch 6,000 eggs at once,  which would require the setting  of 500  hens.    These   500    hens  would produce in the time they  would   be  occupied  in   raising  the remnant of 6,000' chicks,  no  less than 2,200 dozen eggs.  From   these  facts  two  conclusions are  drawn.    One is'that  a hen is an exceeding inefficient  chick producer, and the  second  is that it is a mistake to   utilize  the time and labor of any living  creature  when a  dynamo   will  do the work cheaper and really  better.

Satisfactory progress is being made in securing right of way between here and the boundary line.  Mr. W. P. Rodgers arrived home last  week with his bride and is receiving  the congratulations of his friends., Mr.  and Mrs. Rodgers are at present guests  afc the Similkameen, but will take up  their residence shortly, on Webster  St. The Gazette extends congratulations with best wishes for health,  happiness and all the other good  things thab go to make up the sum of  wedded bliss.  A LIVE STOCK 3TAEKETS POLICY  Following the announcement which  recently appeared in the press, announcing that the Honourable Mr. Burrell had initiated a comphrehensive  markets propaganda in the Live Stock  Branch of his Department, an explanation respecting the details of that policy will be of interest. The scheme involves :  1. The organization of an Intelligence System which shall provide for  (a) Statistics of Animal Population  and of Production. Co-operation with  the Census Branch of the Department  of Trade" and Commerce and with the  Provincial Departments of Agriculture  in the collection and analysis of statistics of animal population. Gathering currentdata as to the exact situation in the country respecting breeding and feeding operations, the supply  of feed, the condicion of stock, when  heavy marketing may be expected, the  districts from which the largest supplies may be available arid the districts in which a shortage exists.  (b) Information regarding the  Home Market. The collection of definite and reliable information regarding market demand in the several  provinces of the Dominion, with particular reference to current prices in  the leading market centres and to  conditions governing interprovincial  trade in meats and other live stock  products.  (c) Information regarding Foreign  Market. Through agents of the Branch  through the foreign service of the Department of Trade and Commerce and  from such other sources as are available the gathering of adequate statistics and data to make possible an  intelligent interpretation of trade conditions in foreign countries, exporting  and importing, with the view of assisting our live stock interests to develop foreign trade, to adjust their  operations to the requirement of foreign demand and to take advantage of  such outlets as may from time to time  appear for the profitable sale of live  * stock products.  (d) Distributing Information to the  Producers. The dissemination of this  information to the producers in such  an effective way that they may be able  intelligently to anticipate market1 demands, to seize opportune periods for  the profitable disposal of their stock,  to adjust successfully their operations  to the trade situation as developed by  local and foreign requirements and to  equalize   production   in   the   several  provinces, thus providing against the  alternate gluts and shortages which  have in the past invariably tended to  upset trade balances and defeat the  expectations of the breeders.  ,  2. The Organization of Farmers for  Co-operative Action in the Sale of  Their Eggs and Poultry.  (a) The successful demonstration  given in Prince fidward Island of the  co-operative sale of eggs suggests the  need and wisdom of extending the system now in operation to all the provinces of Canada and of its further  elaboration as required by varying local conditions and in the development  of  interprovincial  and  foreign   trade.  (b) Their Wool. The policy to be  pursued in this work must closely adhere to the principles followed daring  the past year but it is hoped that  moans may be devised which shall secure to the growers the commercial  advantages of deferred sale when the  market warrants the holding of the  p reluct.  (c) Their Lambs, Hogs and Cattle.  Ii is proposed to initiate the co-operative sale of live stock in accordance  with the principles followed in the  work   already  undertaken.  Note. It should be made clear that  in the prosecution of this programme  it is not expected or intended to involve the Deparment in any commercial obligation, the farmers' associations, as a matter of deliberate policy,  assuming full and complete responsibility in the transaction of their own  business and, ultimately, in the executive administration of their own organization.  3. The Promotion of Sale by Grade  and Payment according to Qualitiy.  It is widely recognized that the sale of  produce on a flat rate basis, for example in the case of hogs, invariably  inflicts a penalty on the progressive  farmer and in effect provides a premium for low grade goods. Evidence is  not wanting that a well directed effort by the Department would favourably influence buyers and merchants  toward an acceptance of standards and  the rating of the Branch that a movement in this direction is fundamental  to any advance which may be made in  improving quality and in increasing  production.  4. The Co-operation of all Interests  in the Department of our Live Stock  Trade. Under a Markets Policy, the  Department may usefully endeavor to  have itself recognized as a medium  for the adjustment of differences between the producer, on the one hand,  and the packing, 'transportation and  financial interests, on the other, and  an organization through which co-operation may be effected by these great  industrial bodies in building up Canada's agricultural trade.  The Markets Policy of the Live  Stock Branch, operated in accordance  with the foregoing outline, will be administered under the immediate direction of Mr. H. S. Arkell, Asst. Live  Stock Commissioner. The present organization of the Branch will be made  use of to the fullest extent, the work  being carried on through the Chiefs  of the several divisions, the cattle,  sheep and swine, and poultry propaganda falling to the charge respectively of Mr. R. S. Hamer. Mr. T. R. Arkell  and Mr. W. A. Brown.  ca:\adias mills increase pro-  DUCTIOX  In this time of war it io gratifying to  know of industries which keep up and  even increase their rate of production.  This latter is the case with the pulp-  wood and wood-pulp industry of Canada. The consumption of pulpwood in  Canada increased nearly ten and a  half per cent in 1914, as compared with  1913. Since 1910 the increases has  been one hundred and foin\ per cent.  The sixty-six active pulp mills in Canada in 1914 consumed 1,224,370 cords  of pulpwood valued at $8,089,868;  while, in addition to this, 972,50S cords  valued at $6,6S0,490 were exported in  an unmanufactured state. Canadians  will be gratified to know that the proportion of.pulpwood made into pulp in  Canada to that exported in the raw  state is increasing, thus giving more  employment  in Canadian mills.      In  1914, 55.7 per cent of all pulpwood  produced in Canada was made into  pulp in Canada and 44.3 per cent was  exported chiefly to the United States,  in the raw or cordwood state. A few  years ago only one-third of the pulpwood produced in Canada was made  into pulp here.  The proportion of pulp made by the  chemical process is increasing as compared with pulp produced by the  groundwood process. This is gratifying because the pulp thus produced is  worth about two and a half times as  much as groundwood pulp. The chem-  cal  processes also  permit    a    wider  range in the-selection of-'timber for  pulping purposes, an important factor  in bringing, into .use as many ,as possible of our native' Canadian trees.  The above and all the other facts  now known about pulpwood and wood-  pulp production in '.Canada, are contained in the Bulletin "Forest Products of Canada, 1914: Pulpwood"  which has been compiled by the Forestry Branch of the Department of the  Interior and which has been sent to  the printer for issue as soon as possible. Copies of the bulletin may be  had free upon its completion and those  interested in the .pulp and������paPer industry who desire, in the meantime,  information upon any particular point  will receive the same by writing to  the Director of Forestry, Department  or" the Interior, Ottawa.
