Meugena attended on  the council with a question from  the C.RR. as to whether the city  would favor putting an addition in  wood to the present buildings at  the wharf. It not the company  would have to repair the old shed  damaged bv fire some time ago.  The addition was designed for a  freight office it being the intention  to have a separate freight staff.  The wrecking staff was in town at  present ready to commence pulling  down the old shed.  Upon investigation it was found  that the wharf waa outside the fire  limits and that consequently ihe  city had no jurisdiction as to a  fireproof building. Surprise wus  expressed that such a request  should be made to the council.  The opinion was freely expressed  that the C.P.R. should put up some  decent buildings which would be  more in keeping with the growth  of the town. The present buildings  were a disgrace to the water front  and did not even afford proper  accommodation to the staff.  LateriMr. Meugens returned with  a request that the council give it's  permission to burn the refuse from  the shed. Several places were suggested for the purpose but it wan  finally decided that the only satisfactory and safe place waa the  nuisance ground, the burning to be  done under the supervision of the  scavenger.  A sub-division plan of the K.L.O.  property between Water street and  Abbott street, south of the creek,  cauaed an unexpected discussion.  A short lane was shown which  ran in a direct line with one from  Beach avenue. The lane, however,  was interrupted by a lot belonging  to another party.  Mr. Parkinson and Mr. Gorrie,  who was summoned on behalf of  the K.L.O. company, suggested  that as the lane was not very material to their plan and seemed  likely to cause trouble to the adjacent owner it should be struck out.  Aid. Millie, however, would not  hear of this, as he regarded the  lane as essential in order to com-  f>ly with the city's regulation as to  ���nes and access to Lacks of lots.  In this he was supported by Aid.  Blackwood, and a vote being taken  the result was two for and two  againat passing the plan with the  lane omitted, Aid. Taylor refraining from voting, being interested  in the subdivision under consideration.  Mayor Jonea who expressed the  view that the absence of the lane  was not in any way contrary t o  the requirements of the city, gave  his casting vote in favor of passing  the plan minus the lane. This vote  however, availed nothing to remove the deadlock as the vote in  favor did not then represent a  majority of the council present as  required by law.  Aid. Millie stuck manfully to his  guns, and to relieve the situation  and to avoid delay in the passing  of the plans, Mr. Gorrie suggested  that the lane be allowed to stand  as shown, hoping at the same time  that the owner of the adjoining  property would not be put to inconvenience by a lane which he  regarded as immaterial.  This removed the bone of con-  contention   and    the    plan    was  passed.  Mr. B. McDonald of the Farmer's  Exchange asked the council for  permission to install a 12-ton platform weighing scales on Causton  avenue, to weigh loads brought in  by motor truck. The scales would  not obstruct the street but would  be put in similar to the one at the  old warehouse.  Mr. F. Heather was ptesent and  asked the council if in the event of  his tendering for the work in the  Park he could have the use of the  city's grader. The request was referred to Aid. Copeland, who  thought that there would be no  trouble about having the grader if  it was available at the time required.  The communications which had  been delayed by the numerous deputations, were then read. These  included a request from Enderby  for the use of the Park for a picnic.  Thia it was mentioned had already  been granted. The mayor of Calgary wrote requesting the council  to attend a convention to be held  at that.city to consider the "probable effect on Western Canada of  the opening of the Panama Canal."  Aid. Copeland said he would be  in Calgary on the date named and  would probably attend the convention.  A request was read from Mr. H.  G. Meugens for a crossing into his  lot in Cadder avenue. Referred to  the Board of Works.  Mr. A. K. Mitchell of Canavan  & Mitchell the newly appointed  city engineers, applied for six white  prints of the City's map.  A request from the Lethbridge  city council for information re the  city's method of assessment waa  referred to the city clerk.  Chief Sutherland submitted a  special report on the fire at the old  cannery, which stated that the file  which was first noticed by Claude  Newby did damage to the extent  of $850, covered by insurance.  The cause of the fire was unknown  but there wa; a strong suspicion  that it waa wilfully aet alight by  some person throwing a match  amongst some straw and rubbish  near the back door. The chief  had consequently given strict orders to the night constable to keep  a sharp look-out for all suspicious  suspicious persons sleeping around  unoccupied buildings and to arrest  those who could not give a satisfactory account of themselves.  It waa mentioned that the C.P.R.  were taking up a twenty foot crossing over the tracks on Water  street and replacing it with a 16ft.  one. It wa* decided to make representations to them that a wider  crossing was necessary.  Aid Taylor asked the council to  confirm the action of the finance  committee in accepting an offer for  certain debentures. The following resolution was accordingly  passed: "That $97,000 of the  city's Debentures be sold to Aeme-  lius Jarvis & Co., Toronto, for  95.185 and interest."  Comment was made upon the  low rate obtained, and Aid. Sutherland suggested that the council  postpone the issuing of any local  improvement debentures for cement sidewalks until the money mar-  $1.50 Per Annum.  C.N.R. to Build Hotel  Site Acquired on Lake Shore  Near New Station  Great things seem to be in store  for Kelowna, and recent developments undoubtedly indicate that  those high up in railway and financial circles are beginning to realize  the attractions which the citv possesses, not only commercially, as a  central shipping point for the great  orchard district, but as a tourist and  summer resort.  Messrs. Mackenzie and Mann, of  the C.N.R, have acquired during  the past week from Messrs. Crowley and Co., a tract of some 43.,  acres on the lake shore not far  from the site selected for their new  station. The price paid was $46,-  000, It is understood that it is  their declared intention to erect  here a first-class tourist hotel, and  to fix up the grounds as a handsome park with tennis courts, golf  links, otc. The site adjoins the new  Lakeside sub-division and the announcement lias already had a  marked effect upon the sale of  that already popular property.  Rutland News  From our own correspondent  Mrs. W. Vance left last Friday  for an extended visit to her mother  at Winnipeg.  Mr. Geo. Hardy arrived from the  prairie last week to take up his  residence in Rutland.  Misses (da Fleming and Annie  Gay entertained their Sunday-  school scholars on Tuesday afternoon at the Gay homestead.  Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Leilheid, of  Leo, Alta., relumed home on Monday after a three weeks holiday  spent at his brother's orchard on  the Vernon road.  A work gang under Mr. Mun-  ford is grading and levelling the  road from the store north to Vernon road. All fences have been  put back and when finished the  road will give an up-to-date appearance lo the district.  Sir Richard McBride  Premier Receives Honor of  Knighthood  The Hon. Richard McBride,  premier of British Columbia, received intimation last Friday that  the King had been pleased to confer the dignity of knighthood upon  him. In company with Premier  Roblin of Manitoba, he is made a  Knight Commander of the Order  of St. Michael and St. George.  The new knight was born 42  years ago at New Westminster, of  Irish parents, and his career has  been marked by one long succession of triumphs. He graduated  from Dalhousie in law in 1890,  and practiced for some time in  New Westminster and Victoria.  His first introduction into the  legislature of the province was in  1900, when he entered the Duns-  muir government as minister of  mines. In 1903 he became the  Premier on the invitation of the  then Lieutenant-governor Sir Henri  Joli de Lotbiniere, and has held  his position with increased majorities ever since.  Report of Provincial  Veterinary Inspector  Certificates Issued to Local  Cow Keepers  Thinning Tree Fruits  Timely Article by R. M.  Winsiow  t-l ��� i     . The    very    favorable    weather  I he provincial veterinary tnspec-1    .. ,   ,        ' , ? .  ket showed some improvement.  A letter was read from P. Burns  At Co., stating that ihey were pulling  in a 6 h.p. motor to run their refrigerator plant, and asking that the  city give them a flat rate per month  all the year round so lhat they  could charge the same amount to  expenses each month. The matter  was referred to the light commitlee.  Mayor Jones read over a proposed agreement with the Okana-  ?;an Telephone Co. This provided  or a 15 hour weekday service,  from / r>.m to 10 p.m., and a 7  hour Sunday service from 8 to 11  a.m. and 2 to 6 p.m., and an emergency night service.  The rates in force at present  were to hold good until the exchange reached 300 subscribers,  and if a continuous service was  desired when an increase of $1  per month was to be made on both  business and residential phones.  The agreement was binding for  five years.  After some opposition the agreement was signed, but with two important amendments: an increase  in daily service to 11 p.m.. and  striking out the proposed increase  for continuous service from residential phones, leaving them at  net.  J. W. Woolsey left on Wednesday for the western Slates in company with Mr. B. McDonald, of the  Farmers' Exchange. He will investigate orchard conditions in the  Yakima Valley and other fruit  centres.  Mr. J. Boyd, of Calgary, is spending his holidays with his brother  on his property in the 2nd subdivision. V  Mr. Hr. Thornber and Mr. H. E.  Upton, of the Farmers' Institute,  gave lectures on Tuesday evening  on Irrigation and Poultry respectively. A fair number attended,  mostly Rutlanders, being loo tired  with cultivating after the splendid  rainfall.  The special school meeting called to endorse final arrangements  made by trustees for purchase of  site was held al fresco before the  institute lectures commented. The  two motions presented bylhe secretary were carried, and all was calm  and peaceful.  Mrs. Dan McLean gave a birth-  day tea at her home on Tuesday,  June 18th.    ���  Arrangements have been made  with the General Passenger Agent  of the C.P.R. to furnish special  train accomodation between Sica-  mous and Okanagan Ldg. to handle the extra passenger traffic during the Irrigation Convention, August 13th to  16th.  Messrs. Palmer c\ Rogerson,  proprietors of the Richter Street  Green houses have very kindly  offered to supply flowers and decorate the tables, gratis, for the banquet it is proposed to have on  August Ifillt, the last day of the  convention.  Mr. James Campbell has placed  an order with A. Brown of New  Westminster, builder of the "Orchard City" for a large new tug on  on similar lines, but smaller, for  use in the ferry service. His new  scow is now completed and has  been in use for some days.  tor, Dr: B.

The South Kelowna Land Co.  are advertiaing a photographic  competition in thia issue, the object  of which ia to get a picture of a  " Kelowna Kid " which will be  characteriatic of the district and  can be uaed in all their advertiaing  in connection with theit fruit landa  which will be shortly placed upon  the market.  A meeting was held during the  week to place the newly formed  war canoe league on a subslantiul  basis. It will be composed of only  three crews, Kelowna, Peachland  and Naramata, Summerland hav-  dropped out of the sport this year.  Kelowna will once more run a 15  paddle canoe with Max Jenkins as  captain, and practice starts Monday night next when a meeting  will beld in the Aquutic Associa-  tion building at 7.30 to make more  I solid arrangements.  The new Japanese tea room  which is being erected by the  Aquatic Association is now almost  ready for business. It is to be  taken in hand by Mr. Alsgard, who  has already demonstrated his ability to run a first-class cafe. The  building which presents a handsome appearance was designed  and erected by Mr. E. England.  The residence and lawn of Mayor  Jones presented a very pretty ap-  pearence Tuesday night last when  the Methodist Church Epworth  league held their last regular meeting for the season, which took the  form of a garden social and ice  cream festival combined, the proceeds of which ($57.10) are to be  used towards the purchase of a  library. The affair proved a complete success. Music was contributed by Mr. Duncan's orchestra  and other friends, and a gramophone lent by Mr. Crawford played  selections.  The young people of Benvoulin  gave a surprise party to the Misses  Renwick last Tuesday evening,  whilst the married ladies surprised  Mr. and Mrs. Renwick on Friday  evening.  The wedding took place Wednesday evening in the Presbyterian  church, of Mr. A. Edwards, of the  firm of Coates, Edwards & Gowen,  to Miss Maud Raymer, daughter of  Aid. H. W. Raymer. The cere,  mony was followed by a large  gathering of friends at the home of  the bride, the happy couple leaving  later by automobile for Vernon on  their way to the coast where the  honeymoon will be spent.  Enderby viaited Kelowna in force  yesterday, over 250 Sunday-school  children and their parents and  friends making the trip down the  lake. The park was placed at  their disposal by the council, and  the day being fine the visitors had  a good time.

Everything in the way of sport,  bar swimming was held up last  week by the long hoped for heavy  rains, which though they prevented Kelowna from making any "advance on the various league tables,  amended matters in more remunerative lines of business. Two important league matches had to be  abandoned, or rather postponed���  the baseball match with Vernon on  Thursday which is to be played at  the end of the season, and the  football match between Vernon  and Kelowna, which probably will  be fought out Saturday week.  Bills are all around town now  advertising the great match between  R. Sutherland and PatConolly, the  champion heavy-weight wrestler ol  Great Britain and Ireland. It is to  come off in the Opera I louse on  on Saturday, June 29th at 8.30.  Besides the great contest there are  to be some boxing bouts. It should  prove, a great attraction. The seats  are already in great demand.  WANTED  Board in private family. Wife and small  child (recent arrivals).   Reasonable price.  Addreaa W. J. C, " Record " Office.     30  blooming season in all the fruit  distiicts of the province has favoured the setting of a very large percentage of the blossoms. There  are verv few trees wliich will not  have all the fruit they can carry,  and probably the majority of them  will have more than they can carry  with profit. This brings up the  question of the thinning of fruit, a  practice well organized in the  States to the south of us, but not  yet generally understood throughout British Columbia. A discussion  of the methods and results of thinning is at the present time very  much in order, because the work  must be undertaken in the very  near future.  How much fruit should a tree hear ?  In discussing the question of  thinning, we admit that a tree may  set more fruit than it can possibly  bring to perfection, as the fruit  grower understands perfection.  Nature cares nothing for the fruit  except as an aid to produce seed ;  the orchardist cares nothing for  seeds except that they are necessary to the production of fruit. We  wish each tree to cany all  the fruit it can bring to commercial  perfection, and no more.  At the same time, the tree must  make new vegetative growth consistent wilh its age and the variety.  The third requisite is that it  should also form enough fruit-apura  for a similar crop in the following  year. I his ideal is the foundation  of our orchard practice.  When n tree is fulfilling these  three requirements it is performing  its maximum duty to the owner. If  il falls short in any one of them, he  Is not getting his maximum of profit  either   immediate   or  prospective,  How does thicriig Heir ?  The removal of some of the fruit  at an eary stage in its growth helps  materially towards securing the  maximum duty of the tree in certain definite ways.  The average size of the fruit left  on the trees is increased, this is  the most obvious result of thinning.  Trees overburdened with fruit produce a greater percentage of No. 2  apples. The increase in size of the  remainder, after the first or second  pickings of Bartlett pears is made,  is a striking instance of the int tease  in size when the number of liuils  is reduced.  The fruit borne is more uniform  is size and shape. On the overloaded tree there is much vai ialion  in size, and, especially where two  or more fruits remain on a spin.  they are variable in shape as well.  The fruits from the side blossoms  of the cluster are in many varieties  much different from those from the  centre blossom, usually being (Lillet  in shape and having a considerably  longer stem. Unilormily in size  and shape is an important essential of commercial perfection.  The color is materially bettered,  more uniform and comes earlier.  The remarknble increase in colour  hich occurs when a first picking  is made from heavily bearing trees  of even the winter varieties, such  as Jonathan and Wagner, furnishes  striking confirmation of this point.  While color seems largely related  to sunshine, il is a well-known fact  that on a heavily loaded tree the  fruit has less colour, which it less  evenly distributed and more slowly acquired.  Thinning improves the quality.  1 his is especially the case where  the soil is deficient in moisture or  plant food.  The fruit is freer of deseasesand  insect pests, because wormy apples,  limb-bruised or diseased fruit of  any kind, can be removed at thinning time. On plums and peaches  in moist regions, fruits thinned so  that no two touch when fully grown  are much freer of brown-rot."  The removal of misshamen f.uit  lowers the percentage of low-grade  fruit.  Thinning prevents premature  dropping. A familiar instance is  tha^ of the Mcintosh Red, which  is especially liable to drop   where  Continued on page 5 The Orchard City Record.

Get After the Thistles  The attention of ranchers and  others is called to the following  extract from the " Noxious Weeds  Act":���  "Every owner, lessee, or occupier of land shall cut or cause  to be cut clown, or otherwise  destroyed, all noxious weeds  growing thereon, so often in each  year ns is necessary to prevent  them going to seed ; and if any  owner or occupier of land neglect  to carry out the provisions of  this section, he shall be liable to  a fine of not less than five dollars  nor more than twenty-five dollars  for each such offence."  This applies lo the adjacent half  of the road as well as to the land  itself. Now is the time to get after  the Canadian thistle. It is the duty  of every farmer to do his share in  eradicating a weed which is a  menace to agriculture and the  community.

" Kelowna Record,"  Dear Sir :--  If the City Council would care  to do something really beneficial,  something that would be welcomed wily great joy by the majority  of the inhabitants ol Kelowna, they  could attempt to rid ihe Weat end  of the city of the plague of mosquitoes, that are at present left in  perfect peace to breed aa fast as  they like, in the numerous sloughs  and stagnant pools around the  park.  Systematically sprinkling these  aforesaid pools with a good stiff  dose of coal-oil, till the water is  well covered wilh the oil, would  be found to have the great etfect  of preventing this pest ever existing there, and the larv.e which  are waiting lor their wings and  poisonous dagger-like trunks to  grow, would be at once effectually  nipped in the bud.  Such a measure would at once  make the 'Aquatic' at least habit  able, and the lake-shore promen  ade would be considerably more  patronized than it is at present; the  pretty little tea room which is going up behind the 'Aquatic,'will be  surelv in need of customers, unless  the city council take some drastic  steps to compat the mosquito nuisance ; and judging fiom results nf  other places aftei such treatment,  the remedy would be most welcome nnd beneficial lo all and  everyone.  At present the above mentioned  places are deserted, whereas were  it not for the neglected pest, the  place would be a most ideal spot  for the inhabitants of our cily to  ait around in the cool of the evening.  Yours truly,  " PRO BONO PUBLICO."  P. S. The cost would be small,  but results great.  "Phone 194  P. () Hox 12  Office Crowley Block  E.

Jos-  lyn, on Tuesday, June I I, a girl.  We are sorry to lose from our  midst Frank Loveday, who leaves  this week to accept a position at  Penticton.  The first crop of alfalfa has been  cut and stacked on the Rainbow  and Caesar ranches.  Mr. William Grant. Jr., has now  moved into his line new bungalow  on Main Street.  Mr. Geo. M. Watt has been  placed in charge of the government  roads and bridges in the Rainbow  section.  A meeting was held Inst week ol  the directors of the O. K. Canning  Co. Mr. N. N. Caesar is now the  president and Mr. J. Goldie, vice-  president, and Mr. N.Gleed, secretary-treasurer.  The very welcome rains of the  past few days have brought joy lo  the hearts of the farmer and orch-  ardist, who now see bumper crops  in sight. The dust on the roads  has been laid wliich proves a very  agreeable change to the travelling  public.  The government road camp has  now moved from the Rainbow  wharf to a point half-a-mile to the  south of the townsite, the section  of the new road from the Rainbow  wharf to the Okanagan Centie  wharves is now completed and  open for traffiic.  An irrigation demonstration was  given by Mr. Thornber in the orchard of Mr. J. Melcalfe, under the  auspices of the Farmer's Institute  on the afternoon of the 12th inst.  A lecture on poultry was given by  Mr. Upton ihe same evening iu the  Westbuiy Mall, wliich proved very  interesting.  A memorial seivice will be held  in the Presbyterian church on Sunday morning, June 23rd, as a tribute lo the memory of one who was  held in honor and respect by all,  Mr. Abraham Code. Rev. Thoi-  burn Conn will conduct the services on this occasion.  The sale of the Max D. Major  property took place on the I Ith,  inst. Mr. Charles Harvey, ol  Kelowna, is now the owner. We  understand the price was in the  neighbourhood of $6,000. Mr.  Major has moved over the hill lo  his 30-acre lot on Okanagan Lake,  two miles south of the townsite.  The new aouth road when completed will pass close by this property.  We were honored by a visit to  our district on Monday, I 7th, fron  the Hon. Price Ellison and Mr.  Ellison, Miss Myra Ellison and Mr.  Hamilton Lang, road superinlen  dent. Motoring down from Vernon in the morning, the party  drove river the new road into Okanagan Centre, and stayed for  lunch al the Grand View hotel.  Returning to Vernon in the afternoon, the visitors called upon Mr  N. N. Gesar and Mr. J. Goldie,  manager nf the Rainbow ranch  Mr. Lang expressed himself as weli  pleased with the favorable grade  which had been obtained on the  new road.  The monthly meeting of the  Board of Trade was held last Iri  day evening. A representative  number of the members were pr  sent wilh Mr. J Goldie in the chair.  The minutes of previous meeting  were read by the secretary anil  adopted. A grant of $20 was giv  en by the Buard towards the Dominion Day Celebration, A communication from the C.P.R. freight  agent at Vancouver re the lowering of freight rates between local  points on Okanagan Lake was then  read, whereupon the secretary was  instructed to write again for addi  initial information, and to require  that Okanagan Centre be included  in the new tariff rales. Among  other matters taken up was the  best way to deal with delinquents  and the need of better telephone  facilities throughout the district. A  special committee was appointed  composed of Messrs Goldie, Gray  Williams and Walt, to look into  the securing of a better telephone  service either by extension of the  Okanagan Telephone Co's present  lines, or by the forming of a  private company. An enquiry  was put lo the meeting by the  chairman as to whether il was  within the province of the Board ol  Trade to aee that signs were placed  at the forks of the main roads in  the district. A general discussion  followed, it being finally decided  that it was a step that should be  taken. The secretary was accordingly instructed to take in hand the  ANGLICAN  St. Michael and All Angels' Church.

See J. R. CAMPBELL  Or call  in " Record" office for descriptive booklets  new Thursday, June 20  The Orchard City Rcaord  Thinning Tree Fruits  Continued from p.ge I  two fruits are left on one spur. Premature dropping ,s quite largely  due to the inability of the tree to  supply moisture to an excessive  crop.  The load of fruit is more evenly  distributed, and this i't a very important feature in preventing the  breaking down of trees.  The tost of picking is reduced |  rou-nlri.iLly, and the labour of  picking is divided more evenly over  the season. This is an important  advantage where the supply of  labour is deficient in picking lime.  Costs of grading and parking are  also much lessened.  Less fertility is reinovad from the  soil. A ton of applrs takes nut  approximately I 2 lb. of nitrogen,  1.61b, uf polash and 0.6 Ib. of  phosphoric Acid, A ton of pears  removes the some amount of nitrogen and about twice as much nf  the other elements. The seeds  take the great bulk of these amounts  the pulp of the fruit taking but a  small portion. As the number of  seeds is roughly in proportion to  the number of apples, and not to  their size, the removal of fruits  leave a much greater supply of  plant food for the balance of the  crop, for the growth of the trees,  and in the soil.  The tree is less liable to winter  injury. The ripening of the heavy  | crop drains the vitality of the tree,  so leaving il in a poor shape to  withstand the winter. Trees bearing moderate crops for which there  is an adequate supply ot plant food  and an adequate supply of 'moisture have sufficient vitality to ripen  the crop, and to ripen the fruit  buds and new shoots as well.  One of the most important remits of thinning is thai the trees  will bear a larger and more uniform  crop the following year. The tendency towards biennial bearing is  materially reduced, much depending in this, however, on the variety.  For various reasons, then, thinning helps materially to secure the  maximum duty from the tree.  When to thin.  As soon an the ctnp can be determined and the supply of labour  permits, thinning should be commenced. Start with those varieties  which are most advanced. Generally, apples, pears and peaches are  thinned when about the size of a  hickory nut, and the thinning  should be completed before they  are more than double that size. On  the various plums the work should  be commenced as soon as possible  after the dropping, familiarly  known as " the June drop" is over.  Apricots, cherries, and crab-  apples are not usually thinned by  hand, because the crop which they  are going to bear ia a reasonably  certain quantity, and can be controlled to a greater extent than in  the larger fruits by proper pruning. The Italian prune and the  peach-plum are not usually thinned, because normally the set of  fruit of these varieties is not great  enough lo warrant the expenditure.  How U thin.  To set Ihe rules for thinning is  even more difficult than to set the  rules for pruning. The fruit grower must determine for himself just  how much crop the tree will carry.  Much depends on ihe age and  variety of the tree, ils vitality, the  soil, cultivation, climate and district. Under equal conditions the  Winesap may be thinned to, say 5  inches, where the Jonathan would  be thinned to 6 or 6, and the Northern Spy to 8. In climutes such  as that of Vancouver Island, where  no irrigation is available, aud the  rainfall averages about half an inch  per month during the summer season, or .in. ft I tit that of the average Ontario district, all varieties  are thinned to a greater distance  than in districts of greater rainfall  or where Irrigation is available. In  this district it is advisable to thin  many crops, the whole of which  could be carried lo advantage under other conditiona. Unhealthy  and diseased trees should not be  expected lo grow as great a load  as those in perfect health, while  trees making extensive growth may  very well be allowed to carry much  more than average trees under the  same conditions.  By one rule which is practiced  to some extent the grower sizes up  all the conditions and determines  how many boxes of fruit the tree  should carry. It is a small matter  . then to determine how many fruits  there should be left on the tree.  Another rule which might be  taken in connection with the previous one is to thin plums to about  2, 2J or 3 inches, peaches, 4 to 8,  depending on the earlyness of the  variety ; pears and apples, 5 to 7  inches apart. In thinning pears  and apples, it ia only with early  varieties that more than one should  be left on any fruit-spur, and with  these early varieties part of the  crop may be removed in one picking and ihe balance Inter. With  winter varieties of apples it is a  good rule to leave fruit only on  each alternate spur, to encourage  annual bearing. On slender twigs  and on wood of the past season's  growth (whers many varieties bear  heavily in British Columbia) it is  well to thin In a greater distance  than on strong fruit-spurs in the  body of the tree. On the outside  twigs and shoots the fruit will average smaller than on the stouter  branches; they are unable lo grow  a close crop of fiuit to perfection.  A very important point well  illustrated by the Yellow Newton  apple, is that the centre apple of  cluster, and nut one of ihe side  apples, should remain. The cen-  tre blossom of the cluster comes  out first, stem is usually shorter  and stockier than those of the outside b'nss linn, nnd al the time of  thinning the apple is usually much  larger than lite others and on a  shoiter stem. The centre apple  usually hangs better to the tree, is  the typical apple of the variety, is  less liable to variation in shape,  and having a shorter stem is better  for packing and for appearance  sake.  Fruit-spurs vary greatly in size  and vitality; the best spurs bear  the best fruit, the weaker spurs  should be given a chance to develop strong ones before next year's  crop.  In the production of fancy fruit,  thinning pays and pays well. It  means much in the assurance of  crops of only high class fruit. It is  not likely lo be of value unless the  orchard is right in the matter of  variety, fertility, cultivation, pruning and spraying; it is not likely to  give good returns unless the high-  class article produced is properly  packed and marked by business  like methods. Thinning Is an er-  sential feature of the new orchard-  culture.  Present indications are that this  year will see the largest crop of  tree fruits British Columbia has  yet had. Throughout the province from Vancouver Island to the  Kootenays the apple, prune, peach  pear and plum trees have been  full of blossom, and there has been  no In-,-, from frost or unfavorable  weather. Most of the t.ees are  certain to have a heavy load of  fruit, of which very much will be  undersized unless thinning is practised. It is hoped that fruit-growers will grasp the situation rightly  The prices for undersized fruit are  never very remunerative. It is always the good, large, perfect fruit  that bring paying returns. 1 his  year the difference in price between  fancy and low gratle fruil will be  emphasized. Large yields of fruil  are promised in Ontario, in the  Middle States. Colorada, California  Monlano, Idaho, Oregon, and  Washington, as well as British Columbia. The North-western States  in fact, have the bumper crop of  their history ; and they look to th  Canadian Prairies lo buy a great  deal of it, as limes are good in  Canada, while money is scarce in  the United Slates. This means that  there will be plenty of poor fruit  for sale on our markets without any  from British Columbia, and the returns for this class of fruit are  bound to be low. Neither do tr  canneries want ��mall fruil; there is  no money in pie-peaches for any  one. Every grower should resolve  lhat he will not grow any peaches  smaller than " 90V Any shipper  knows that there will be no market  for the small stuff, and thul even  in ihe eatliest varieties we can  grow, returns will beunsnlisfa. loty  for the small grades. Fortunately  there is no good reason why any  grower should have any percentage of the small sizes In mat kel.  It is unlikely that any fruit-grower will ihin too much ; it is quite  certain thai most growers will not  thin enough. While the average  man may know about thinning, he  is short the nerve necessary to  carry it out. Most of the growers  in Biitish Columbia have not yet  had enough experience to realize  the difference in profits on large  and small sizes. Those men who  see the situation clearly and who  recognize the fundamental necessity for adequate thinning should  use their influence by getting their  neighbors to take it up.

Armstrong had been  assured that the C.N.R. had fully  decided to run its main line thruugh  the town. Mr. Ashcroft, however,  at a public meeting called for the  purpose, rold the citizens th it this  privilege would tost them $50,0(0  as a bonus lo the company. Th y  h*ve decided to raise the money  and so are assured the line, but  politicians had better keep away  from Armstrong for awhile.  At a recent meeting of the Penticton council it was resolved by a  majority vote of the members to  adopt a measure providing for the  payment of the reeve and councillors, the reeve to receive $300 and  the councillors $200 per annum.  This was in face of the result of  the plebiscite taken a couple of  weeks ago, and which declared  against payment of the members.

Grand Forks and Midway are  both aspirants to the honor��� and  incidentally, the emoluments���of  being the junction point of the  C.P.R. and Kettle Valley systems.  Old Midway-Vernon  Debts to be Paid  A final settlement is at last to be  made of the long-standing question  of paying for the labor and materials expended on the Midway and  Vernon railway. The matter has  been recently taken up by the  Provincial Government, in accordance with the/promise made by  the Premier and arrangements  made by which any valid claims  which are still outstanding will be  met.  When the Midway and Vernon  railway project collapsed, it will be  remembered that there were a large  number of claims for labor and  supplied unpaid. Subsequently the  Kettle Valley Company took over  the part of the line from Midway  to Rock Creek, a distance of ten  miles. The Kettle Valley Company  then agreed to pay all claims on  this ten miles. A commission was  appointed consisting of Judge For-  an, of Nelson, R. F. Green and  L. M. Rice and as a result of their  finding the company paid out  something over $63,000 about two  yeara ago.  This settled the obligation of tire  Kettle Valley Company in the matter. The remaining part of the  line, on which a good deal of work  had been done, was abandoned  altogether, but the people of the  neighbourhood who furnished  labor and supplies have always  felt that they had some kind of a  moral claim against somebody.  Ihis moral, though not legal, claim  is now recognized by the government and the same three gentlemen have again been named as a  commission to adjudicate claims.  The government has agreed to pay  one-half of these claims and the  Kettle Valley Company will pay  the other half.  The commissioners are now  about to advertise that they will  consider all claims for actual physical work performed and goods  and materials supplied in connection with the survey located or the  opening of the right-of-way.  A national memorial to the engineers of the "Titanic," who all  perished at their posts, has been  suggested bv an engineers' association in Liverpool and the idea  has received endorsation from all  sections of the United Kingdom.

Whan Mr. uud Mrs. Linculu uud  their party ��at down In their box at  Ford't Theatre the fateful night the  President was ahol, the guard who  waa acting as substitute for Col Mc-  Cook, took hit) position at the reur of  the box, close to un entrance leading  Into the box from the dress circle of  the theatre. His order* were to  atand there, fully unned, and to permit no unuuthorlzed person to pass  Into the box. Hie orderB were to  Bland there and protect the President  at all hazurdB. From the spot where  he wag thus stationed, this guard  could not see the stage ur the actors;  but he could hear the words the actors spoke, aud he became mo interested In them that, incredible as it may  seem, he Quietly deserted his post of  duty, and, walking down th. dimly  lighted aisle, dellterutely look B seat  In the last row of the dresn circle.

(HIM.MAN'S CURIOUS MISTAKE  In Chinese visiting etiquette the  nink of the ra'W Is denoted bv the  B.ze of his card. Thus the vla.t.ng-  rurd of u high mandarin would be  nu Immense roll uf paper, neatly tied  up.  A gentleman whu lias travelled In  China brought home b Chinese ser-  vent, und his wife .soon after held a  "reception." John Chinaman attended the door, and received with great  disgust the small pasteboards of the  visitors. Evidently with an opinion  of his own of the low condition of his  mistress's friends, he pitched the  cards Into a basket and with scant  ceremony showed their owners into  the drawing-room.  But presently the gas man called  witn a bill���a big piece of cream-  coloured paper. The "card" satisfied  John. With deep reverence lie received it.

"Me no Babe," repeated John, Bulling blankly  "We shall have to have an interpreter," commented his honour, as he  realised thai the witness did not un-  lerstand English; and accordingly  knottier Chinaman was hulled Into  jourt to act as Interpreter. "Ask the  witness," commanded the judge,  'when he saw this man run o\er the  Jog."  The Interpreter turned tu his fellow countryman and said, "We chuug  !o, ho me cbOO lung WoW, e-htr me no  show chee, loo know so-ioo bing gong  tong yit  hen"  To which the wltneSB replied,  'Wong lift kee, wu boo, wing choug  iing yite lee, kin sing, choy yoke  BOey ying lung ding wall, sling W��y  Ivny san yick ling toy bing cue) bow  .bu, po lung po ��ou hung mow kim  Hioiig cjuen lee chow yo ben toug."

There la at least one native race  that is not dying out. This Is the  Maori, of New Zealand. According  to statistics obtained In the census of  Maoris taken In last March, the total  nativp population of New Zealand Is  aaid to be 49,360, an Increase for five  vears of 1617 In addition 'here are  21c Maoris on the Chatham Islands.  It is a matter of difficulty to ascertain the number of half-castes living  at Maoris.

Vert, though thiB maj be ti ue < nough  tUere still renviins the quettinn,  ���\Miat causes the actual lapa*.1 into  unconsciousness?" Oae theory sets  out that sleep is due to a bloodless  condition of the braCn, which Is ac-  Liunted for by the draw.ng oil of  Hood In order tha-. thi other Eat i;ue4  organs of the body may be replenished.  As to the amount of sleep teiiuived  l.y individuals, t'.icre is tfc ��� popular  eaylng: "Five houra fcr tin man, six  fcr u woman, and seven for the tool."  t; has been noticed, however, that a  ivormui is better able tu suind loss  u! sleep than a num.

It was being  pumped out m t he rate of 7,uud  gallons u minute, and it looked as  though the sinkers would he beaten.  Then the Germans came to the rescue  rt'ku their freezing process.  They bored holes round the shaft  to a depth of 4ou ft. These holes  were I'.ieli l.ned with steel lubes, und  an inner tube was inserted, down  which brine was pumped from the  freezing plant, converting all the  water, sand, and bad ground into a  fiozen block ot Ice The sinking was  nn continued through the ice wall  When the bottom of the Ice had  been reached Iron tubing plates Were  fixed, and the waler thus fastened  back.

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOCCOOOOOO  8  IN THE WOULD OF SCIENCE  X  OOOOCX)OOOOOOOCOCX>OOOOOOOOC  BRITAIN'S COAL SUPPLY  Prophesied Exhaustion of Fuel Will  Hurry the Advance of Improved  Engines aud Machinery.  Scientific calculation goes to show  that the availably quantity of coal in  the proved British coal fields Is in  the neighborhood of 100,000 million  tons, und that If the rate of working  increases as It is doing this will be  completely exhausted In 175 years.  And In the life of a nation 175 years  is a span. It Is far from certain, indeed, whether the period named Is not  an extreme one, for the ever-expanding mechanical activity of the world  indicates an acceleration of the rate  of output on which tbe calculation Ib  based, and so it is not beyond the  range of possibility that the children  uf those now living may, before they  become octogenarians, witness the  contraction of Industry, the beginnings of the at first slow but afterwards rapid iransfurmatiuu of  Britain's great  career.  It is pointed out however thut ibis  summing up uf our learned men dues  bolt the dour against a mure hopeful  prospect. Al present the greater part  of the energy potential iu the coal  mined Is wasted. There can be economy lu many ways, K is pointed  out, by the substitution of lurbine  engines for reciprotating engines,  thereby reducing the coal required  per horse-power from 41b. or 51b. to  Hfelb. or 21b.; hy the further replacement of turbines by gas engines, raising tlie economy to 3D per cetit. of the  total energy available In the coal, and  thus lowering the coal consumption  per horse-power to lib. or l'ilb.; by  creating the power ut the pittnouth  aud distributing it electrically, us is  already done In the north of England.  There uie other methods by which  economy cun be effected, but none of  Ihem perhaps so obvious as that of  checking waste in the domestic grate  as well as the factory chimney.  TWO'NKW LAKES  A spectacular feature attending the  building of the barge canal, in New  York State, ts a change- In the map  of the state that will add to Its lakes  two bodies of water of considerable  Bife. i  A profile of the canai across the  state shows a continuous descent from  Lake I'-rie to the confluence of Seneca  and Oneida rivers, then a rise to the  comparatively low divide in the vicinity of Home, followed by another con-  UnuoUB descent, to the Hudson. From  this It will be seen that there are two  critical points In furnishing a water  supply for the canal. The problem at  the western end 1? readily solved hy  the abundance to Lake Erie, but  throughout the history of the state  canals, the question of supplying the  Hume summit level has always presented more difficulties, and has led  to the building of a' chain of reservoirs among the hills to the south and  within the Adironda. ks ou the north.  For the enlarged canal these existing  sources are retained, and the two  large reservoirs are added.  The work of building the dam and  clearing the site at Delta, for Impounding the waters of the upper  Mohawk, about five miles north of  Home is now ubout three-quarters  done. Across the greater part of the  river gorge, 000 feet wide at its base,  Ihe duiu hus reached Its full height  of 100 feet above the loftiest foundation. When the gaps left for the river  and an existing canal ure closed, and  the ton of the dam is extended to ita  1,000 feet of length, there will be  formed a reservoir some four miles  long und two miles wide at the base  of Its triangular shape, liaxlng an  average depth of twenty-three feet  aud a capacity or about 20,75o,O0O,00u  gallons.  The Bfyster) of (.lti��g  A correspondent recently reported  what he described as the 'curious  freak' of a backblrd flying against a  parlor window many times at the  some spot continuously. Such an incident is uot uncommon, Birdh have  been known lo fight for houra at a  time, day after day, with their own  Image reflected in a pane of glass,  pecking and fluttering against tbe  pane and quite exhausting themscHcB  lu their fury to demolish the supposed  rival. It is another instance of how  the arts uf our civilisation corrupt  ami confuse the birds. It is the same  wilh fishes. Darwin tella a story of  a pike in an aquarium separated by  plate glass from fish which were Its  proper food, lu trying to get at tlie  fish the pike would often dash with  such Violence against the glass aa to  be completely stunned. It did this  fur mure than three months before It  learned caution. Then when the  glass was removed the pike would not  attack those particular fish, but would  devour others freshly Introduced. It  did uot at all understand Ihe situation, but associated (he punishment It  hud received, not with the glass, but  with a particular kind of fish. Darwin's American monkeys proved themselves mure 'kiiuwing.'
