HEDLEY,  B.C.  Grand Union  HEDLEY, B. C.  HERRING & WINKLER, Proprietors  ... Shortly before the close of the session sit Ottawa, the extension of time  to ".complete the Midway and Vernon  railway so as to come in for the subsidy of $6,500 par mile was granted.  Representatives were present to  show where provision had been made  to pay, up the indebtedness incurred  during construction in 1905 which  amounts to something like $100,000.  Some of the "creditors have been informed that they may shortly look  for a settlement of their claims.  It will be. remembered that a New  Yorker named Arthur was picked up  by Ralph Smsiiles, who had the negotiations in hand on behalf of the charter holders of the M. & V. Arthur  deposited, or caused to be deposited  some $10,000 in the bank to begin construction, and on the strength of this  managed to run jawbone for $100,000  worth of supplies, labor and cash.  Among the creditors were some to  whom the loss was a. very great hardship, and the settlement of these seve-  val claims will in itself help out matters even if no immediate move be  made for resuming construction operations.  The terms of payment of the Dominion Subsidy Act not being at hand,  the Gazette is not in a position to say  whether the same restriction exists as  in that of the provincial enactment,  which requires each ten miles to be  fully completed before the subsidy for  that particular section is paid over.  While most of the grading on the  first ten miles out of Midway has been  done, there are yet several gaps to be  filled in* before, it is completed.  A meeting of the fruit growers of  the Similkameen was held in Keremeosou Saturday, the 20th ,inst.  Aftera-outine business- had been disposed of, the committee appointed to  make .inquiries re holding a Fall Fair  was enlarged. Mr. F. C. Wilson, one  of the firm of Wilson Bros., who own  a. ranch on the opposite side of .the  river to Keremeos, and who are engaged in producing fruit and thoroughbred poultry quite extensively, but  are very much handicapped by the  want of a bridge across the Similkameen, iead the - following excellent  paper which was well received by the  members, and showed that Mr.Wilson  must be classed among the wide-awake  and intelligent farmers of the district,  and that he has given much study to  the scientific side'of farming.

A GROUND-WORK 'ADDRESS ON INSECTS.  Insects belong in the animal kingdom to the invertebrates, in the division of Arthropods!.. They sire believed  to be descended from Myriapods, and  to be closely related to worms, their  htrval stage being the sippiirent proof  of this theory.  The earliest known insect occurs iii  the Cumbrian rocks and is a Heimpter,  or member of the aphis family. There  have comparatively few insects preserved in the rocks, however, as they,  in common with most animals perishing ou dry land, were doubtless devoured by other cresitures or speedily  decayed, into their original elements,  and so were lost.. Those which have  been preserved, hsive died, as a rule, in  marshy plsices or great bogs, and hsive  been rapidly covered with silt, or sediment, or decaying vegetation, the  majority of such insects being of the  Neuroptera or drsigon-fly family.  Insects sire very numerous 'and widely distributed, some ten million species  having been classified and named, New  Zealand, perhaps, being unique in hav-,  The dominion estimates sis published,' and. supplementsiries thereto, give  little cause for rejoicing in this portion  of -Yale-Cariboo.1 The bill of fare  shows absolutely.nothing for the portion of.'Yale-Cariboo within the confines of the Similkameen Electorsil  District.  Possibly the reason .why-no "mention  is made of anything for telephone improvement is .that'the work done this  spring is"merely'the, completion of the  mite appropriated lsist, session for that  improvement and held back so-late in  the -fall thsit it was impossible' to  finish it.  , There is $1,000 appropriation for the  Vernon-Kelownsi-Penticton section,  and $1,700 for si line from Vernon to  Lumby. ���������  -..Last winter .-Duncan Ross, to influence the. Vernon vote for Dr. Mac-  Donald, promised public buildings for  Vernon this year, but sill it amounted,  to is $5,000 to purchase the ground.

O'Keefe,  hsis sold the hind to si Belgism syndicate. It comprises with rsinge land  17,000 acres, of which 8,000 is irrigable,  sind the price paid is over $(>00,000.  The intention   is  to irrigsite by ex-  of animsil and vegetable life, but eleven  species of butterflies smd some three  hundred beetles.  Their peculiar structure, gives insects their clsiss name, sis they sire  cresitures of three main psuts or sections known as the head, thorax smd  abdomen. They hsive six legs, usually  two or four wings, sind spirsicles or  bresithing holes arranged silong their  sides for their stir supply. They have,  low nervous systems, sind sit different  stsiges, highly developed digestive; smd  reproductive functions.  The hesul contains the tiny brain,  smd is externally variously sinned; and  it is important thsit fruit-growers recognize nt least two types, namely:  those provided with long biting jaws  or mandibles, and those with probosces  or suctorial sipparatus, for the former  can usually be destroyed with one of  the arsenical poisons such sis Paris  green, while the latter may be treated  with one of the so-called emulsions of  whale oil soap, or kerosene. These  emulsions suit in two ways���������either destroying by being absorbed through  the skin, or by obstructing the breathing holes. Not the least interesting  psirts of the head sire the fixed, niany-  focetted eyes, and the antennae which  perform the function of feelers.  The thorax contains within its strong  outside skeleton, the vital organs sind  a large part of the nervious system,  besides affording firm attachment for  the legs and wings.    The nervous sys  Good progress wsis made during the  psist week on the railway bridge at  Armstrong's., The end of last week  saw sill the piles driven for the long  trestle approach on the south end, the  piles all sawn off smd caps put on, and  they were busy laying on the stringers  sind cross-ties. The car-driver had  been brought-up sind the,intention sip-  parently was to drive piles in the river  for false work, to get the. trsiin sicross  and use the car-driver to drive the  I>iles for the piers.  The river has been rising steadily  for the past'week, but hsis not yet attained si height to prohibit work, and  the gsing sue making all possible hsiste.  They expected to put si trsiin over on  false work by Saturday night, the 11th.  TRAIN SERVICE CREEPS UP.  Indications That Train Service Will Be  Opened Up to Chepaco Soon.  For the past month there has been  considerable speculation as to when  the Great Northern would open up  train service further on than Oroville,  to which point they hsive been running  since the first of March.  It is now a month since ballasting  was completed to Nighthawk and the  people of Nighthawk confidently expected that their next move would be  to make that the terminus sis soon sis  possible and thus avoid the the extrsi  stsige drive over the divide to Oroville.  It now transpires that the railway  company is hustling to complete the  station sit Chepsico, which the head  carpenter was instructed to hsive resuly  for occupation by. the 10th of May.  One. reason for preferring Chepaco to  Nighthawk as the next terminus north  of Oroville is that of customs convenience for the railway company. At  present they have to pay con voyage  for sill construction trains between  Brideville smd Chepsico, smd by stationing a customs officer at Chepsico  this difficulty would be obviated.  Should this change be msule at once,  it is altogether likely, however, thsit  the stsige would drive to Nighthawk  and meet the train there, owing to the  fact that Chepaco is yet without hotel  accommodation of any kind, smd that  being on the opposite, side of the river  it is incapable of siccess from the wagon  road on this side except by the ferry at  Armstrong's, several miles further up.  Grev canal or White Val- j tern is so lowly organized that many  insects may lie divided into segments  with si sharp instrument without evidencing distress.  The; abdomen contains the digestive  sind reproductive sipparatus, sind is  also frequently armed with sting or  tending the  ley  Irrigation Company's ditch,  smd  the lsind is to  be divided into five sind  ten acre blocks  smd sold  iu  Belgium  smd  England.

The last official Gazette announces  the appointment of J. R. Brown as  successor to C. A. R. Lambly in all the  offices held by him. The same issue  announces the. appointment of H. A.  Turner to be mining recorder and assessor and collector. The latter was  somewhat of si surprise, but it is a  rattling good appointment.  The three days preceding the close  of the session were marked by much  obstruction on the-part of the Opposition  allies.  Amendments to the Coal Mines Act,  Dyking Assessment Adjustment Act,  Supreme Court Act, Bush Fire Act,  and the Act to Constitute si, Court of  Appesil, all passed without, difficulty, \  but the Land Act amendments became  the battle, ground.  Mr. Oliver commenced proceedings  by sin amendment to allow pie-emptor  sixty days to occupy sifter staking,  which wsis siccepted.  McKay, of Ksislo, Offered a number/  of amendments, w'hich, because of his  experie/ice as deputy Commissioner of  Lands smd Works, he had found to be  necessary to facilitate the work of the  department.  .  These were attacked by the Socitil-  ists sind Liberals in much grand-stand  oratory.  Carter-Cotton fanned the flame of  Opposition wrath by si recital of actions committed and utterances made  by the objectors on former occasions  that were embarrassing to them.  The amendment that precipitated  the fight was as follows :  "Thsit section 10 be amended by  striking out all the words after the  word 'hereto,' in the twelfth line  thereof, and sidding the following:  ' Provided, however, that the Lieuten-  ant-Governor-in-Council may provide  that, when any lots, blocks of lots or  hinds belonging to the Crown, in or  near any city or townsite, sire to be  sold by public auction, such lots,  blocks of lots or lands shsill not be subject to the provisions of this section.'  It is further provided that the provisions of this section shsill not apply to  the lands of the Crown in the townsite  of Hastings and sit Point Grey, sold by  public ��������� auction before the first day of  January, 1907, and the right of the  Crown to si reservation of cine-fourth  of all the blocks of lots of said lands is  hereby released and abandoned in cases in which Crown grants have been  issued containing said reservations."  The leader of the Opposition, forgetting his glass house, was most intemperate in his language in opposition to  the amendment. Hawthornthwaite  and "Olalla John" both followed in  the same strain.  As si matter of fsict there hud been  no violation of the statute in connection with the Point Grey hinds. The  particular clause of the statute which  might be construed sis applying being  intended for an altogether different  case sind the present amendment was  merely meant to clear up sin uncertainty that might exist because of si possibility of doubt being cast on the title  because of the possibility of it being  thus construed.  The Municipal Clauses Act was  amended to enable municipsilities to  grant special licences for the retail of  liquors at fairs smd public entertainments.  The Cariboo Gold Mining Co.'s leases  were consolidated.  John Oliver moved for si Select Committee re Point Grey lands. Mr. Mc-  Phillips devoted attention to Oliver  and Macdonald in this msitter with  telling effect, and Oliver finally ran  with his grips to the Princess Victoria,  upon which he took passage..  Before prorogation, the Attorney-  General announced that after frequent  consultations with his colleagues, he  hsid decided not to give sissent to any  prosecutions under the Lord's Day Act.  Colin C Brown, representing Wood  Vallance and Leggatt, and W. Raw-  son, of the McClary Co., were in town  this week.

Between   Ontario  and   the   Dominion  there  hsis   been   friction   for   several  years, principally over the question of  legislative rights, but it only  required  the grabbing of a little bit  of  Ontario  land  by   the Ottawa   government  to  bring the matter to  an acute stsige in  that province;.      The   federsil   government by straining  the  interpretsition  of a certain provision,   laid  hold  of si  modest trsict.of Ontario land  at  Peta-  wsiwu   which they claimed  as si miii-  tsu-y reserve.    !'t didn't take  much   of  the kind of medicine so regularly  lad-  elled out to  British  Columbia   to  put  Ontario in fighting humor; 'but  there,  is this difference between the Ontario  Liberal and the British Columbia Lib-  ���������ersil, that the former  is   not disposed  to act the traitor to his province in the  interest of party.

While the dam on Twenty-mile lake  is maintained in good condition, the.  recurrence of the old time floods iii  Twenty-mile creek would seem to be  impossible;. The reasons for this are  explained in a paragraph Whieih we  i reproduce from the Gazette of si year  ago:  "Apparently no furtherfears of dam-  sige from floods in Twenty mile creek  .need-be .entertained, and' the cause  which will produce this beneficial  effect is the da mining of Twenty-mile  hike, which was done in the summer  of 1901 to provide si reservoir from  which- to draw during the period of  low water in the winter months, /'this  year the hike has been' pumped i-ight  down ;to the mud bottom, but this  ���������would not have been necesssuy but for  the. leak: in the dam in July last which  resulted in the escape of nearly two  months' ��������� supply of water.

LOCAL FRUIT-GROWERS CONFER.  Continued from I'atce One  Perhaps the most wonderful thing  about insect life is their metiimorphos-  e-s. A great 'number, of the creatures j  may be said to submit to two births  sind two deaths. These pass through  fenir stage's, viz: egg, lurvii, pupa and  imago, as. in the Lepidoptersi, or but-  ��������� terhMes and moths; while others, as  the grasshoppers or Orthoptera hsive  but three' distinct stsiges, and such  creatures as the cockroaches pisicti-  eallv two.  Of the egg stsige,  little nisiy be said.  -;- The eggs are placed under the   leaves,  ��������� in the folks of branches, on the trunks  of trees, under ground, on the surface  of wsiler: in fact, wherevertheinstinct  of the insect teaches is a fairly safe  plsiee. ���������and a proper one for the young  Isirysi to secure its food as soon as it is  hsite-hed.  The larvnl stage is tlie worm sti'ge,  ������������������and is the destructive one. At this  time, the cresitures are known as caterpillars, maggots, grubs, hulgrsi.mites,  coddis-wornis, etc.; sind stfter.a shorter  or longer period spent in active feeding, they weave their outer coverings  smd pass into the pupal stage, which  for my present purpose may be termed  the first death.  After a time, depending in duration  upon the particular species, the perfect  , insect or imago emerges from the pupa  case, spends si very different life from  thsit of the Isirva, deposits its eggs smd  presently dies, and with the eggs the  cycle" is begun sigain.  However, we must recognize that  not all insects are injurious. When  we reflect that prsicticallv the whole  of our fruit is the direct result of a  system of which the insect is a most-  essential link, we begin to recognize  .what aii enormous.debt we owe to the  lsirge class of the Hymenoptersi, or  bees, wasps etc.,   and to  many  other  ��������� genera as well: also it msiy be said in  passing, that the small lady bird beetles, in their.way,' are quite beneficial,  their lsirvsie fastening upon certain  species of injurious larvsie smd destroying them.  1 might refei to a few concrete ex-  sunples. For instance, I have seen  some very serious work done by the  common grasshoppers, such as the  complete destruction of green onion  tops, lettuce, and other garden products, and stripping the leaves from  young fruit trees. 1 have seen si grasshopper make'ii hole unite through the  hard rind of a vegetable marrow; I  hsive seen crab apples scored in every  direction, and have actually seen the  tender bark of young fruit trees cut  through by the strong jaws of the  cresitures.  The young of these insects will hatch  out in May smd June, smd sifter si feeding life of si few weeks will pass almost  imperceptibly through the pupa stsige,  sloughing off their old skins in much  the same manner sis reptiles, after  which the imsigo flies sibout smd feeds  till late summer or fall, the females de  PROP  Is  A  Hedley  is the. supply point for the Nickel Plate mountain, on which is situated the famous "Nickel  Plsite"���������the richest gold mine in Canada���������and many other  promising mines and prospects.

Thoroughbred  Jersey   Bull  Aged si years.  positing their eggs in the ground to si  depth of one or two inches, si, short  time before dissolution. These enrgs  pass the winter in the ground.  Another pest, very common, sometimes very destructive, and indigenous  on tlie wild choke cherry throughout  tlie Valley, is the beetle whose lsirvsie  causes the so-called "black knot."  This "knot" is formed by the effort  of the tree; to repair the; injury caused  to it by the boring smd feeding of the  lsirvsie of si small creature, which in its  cycle of life reverses the plan followed  by the grasshopper. The adult matures in the fall, psisses the; winter under ground or under brush or leaves,  and in early spring appears on the  trees, stinging the twigs with its slump  ovipositor when depositing its eggs.  For the knot, once formed, the only  radical cure is excision and fire, though  carefully painting with spirits of turpentine is si fairly successful plan.  For grasshoppers, bran poisoned  with Paris green, and with si small  quantity of syrup udded, is recommended: also shiiNow plowing. Poultry which sire allowed the run of the  orchiU'd will account for vast numbers  of injurious insects.  A creature causing much trouble in  eastern orchards at present is the so-  csilled oyster-shell scsile or bark louse.  This insect is so minute that it may he  osisily overlooked until it hsis caused  very considerable damage. The female  deposits her eggs under si secreted  oyster-shell-shaped scale;, on the trunk  or limbs of the tree where they pass  the winter, hatching in early spring.  At first, the young larva- appesirs as  si. tiny reddish louse running about on  the tree-trunk, smd it msiy be; destroyed with comparative ease when in that  stage; but it soon attaches itself to  the bark, inserts its proboscis smd begins to form a scale for itself, under  which in time it deposits its eggs.  The remedies' most successful, so far,  sire scraping the trunk and the application of the lime-sulphur wash.  The aphis, smd others of our commoner injurious insects, I shall not  take up sit present, but Avill'leave to  some other member of the association  for some future paper.  F. C. W.

Keremeos, B. C  XIGKL B. KWART.  April 0th, m>7. II-  indigestion  Stomach trouble is but a symptom of, and not  In itself a true disease. We think of Dyspepsia,  Heartburn, and Indigestion as real diseases, yet  they are symptoms only of a certain specific  Nerve sickness���������nothing else.  It was this fact that first correctly led Dr. Snoop  in the creation of that now very popular Stomach  Remedy���������Dr. Shoop's Restorative. Going direct  to the stomach nerves, alone brought Mint success  and favor to Dr. Shoopand his Restorative. Without that original and highly vital principle, no  such lasting accomplishments were ewer to be hud.  For stomach distress, bloating, biliousness, bud  breath and sallow complexion, try Dr. .Shoop's  Restorative���������Tablets or Liquid���������and see for yourself what it can and will do.
