Mr. S. Sproul returned last week
from a most interesting trip to the
coast districts, taking in the Westminster and Spokane shows, and a
chat with him elicited many facts
of interest "to the farmers and fruit-
giowers of this district.
Mr. Sproul, in company with his
father and mother, left Kelowna on
October 12th, and made a very
pleasant and quick ride to Vancouver in just 24 hours. A very
.enjoyable week was spent here in
visiting a brother and family, with
whom ' many of the beauty spots
were visited. Vancouver has made
big progress since Mr. Sprout's last
visit ten years -ago. It was then a
city of 30,000 inhabitants, and has
now reached-115,000.
- * Whilst at Vancouver the Westminster fair was-1 visited, and Mr.
Sproul was/enthusiastic over the
good worjc done there by the^Kel-
owna exhibit. Mr. D. Gellatly and
family, whom Mr. Sproul calls the
" Tomato King of the Okanagan,"
„and_ other* Kelowna friends weie
|_iet,and a balloon-ascent witnessed.
S" Victoria' was next-visited, after
an interesting run;on the fine GP.R.
^teamer Princess Charlotte. Mr.
^proul's sister, Mrs--IyH. Stephenson, resides -here, and his daughter,
Pearl, is also there takings college
course. Victoria has increased her
population by 25,000/during the
past ten-years. A very"nhe.city,
Mr. Sproul, thinks, and bounds to
anagan friends were
, including Dr. Gaddes'and the Hon. Price"ElKson.7 ,'j
v /Okanagan -fruit commanded* a
good price "at the coast, apples
selling .'for"$2.25 to $2.75\retail,
twice as much as coast grown fruit.
theLflaivor. of> which, is as turnips
compared "with the fruit of tKe interior. * The same thing was noticed
at^Seattle, the next,- place -visited,
the fruit of the interior states being
so'.much superior to-.that grown
around Seattle. ,
-A I trip over-the Cascade mountain, .which includes, a tunnel 2|
miles long, thiough which trains
are run by electricity, and Spokane
was reached in time for the great
apple show. Spokane is in Jthe
centre of a fine fruit country, and
is" a-favored city in the way'of
possessing abundance of cheap
power drawn from the numerous
falls on the Spokane river. There
are eleven railroads running into
Spokane and three more building,
despatching 33   trains   daily   for
various points. _        _	
The'AppIe Show from the 20flT
to the 25th of November, said Mr.
Sproul, Was good, and an education
in. itself to the fruit-grower. " It
proved conclusively where' the
good ,fru\t came from: Apart from
any bias which a man might have
for his own district, it was generally
conceded that the judging had not
been in accord with the popular
verdict, the Okanagan deserving a
much higher place than was awarded*, to*, it. A stand, displaying
Kelowna's fruit and literature, was
a good suggestion from Mr. Sproul
for next year's show.
Returning via Keremeos and
Petoticton, Mr. Sproul came back
more fully convinced of the sound*
ness of the claims made for the
Okanagah as a banner fruit-growing district. Whilst many of the
points visited have undoudted futures before them, yet * none have
so much reason to Jook forward to
a continual increase in population
and importance as the Kelowna
district^—-— v

Ckas. Hehner left this morning
for Toronto where ' he will ,take
part in" a happy event. He will
also while away confer with the
Department of Agriculture with the
idea of placing upon the market a
special spray he has invented for
destroying San Jose scale. The

Wednesday evening in the schoolroom in the Keller block, only a
small attendance being present.
Mr. DuMoulin, the vice-president,

the cup won by them.'   Filed.
From the Department of Agriculture, 're the resolution of the
Board in reference to the fumigating of nursery stock, and promising
the same attention.
From the Department of Marine
and- Fisheries, stating that it; waa
impossible to .stock the lake with
whitefish, as the nearestJiatcheries
were, at Winnipeg, and transportation would be too great; and1 from
Prof. ■. Prince, pointing- out-_that

_", J. Carsorso wrote asking that the
Board of Trade would take steps
to, have ,better facilities made for
the.hauling of produce to and from
the new. GP.R. wharfe, stating that
the city - council should < be approached to do their share'-and
the CP.R. to do likewise. It waa.
agreed to refer the matter to the
city council to see what could be
done, and that the council should
be asked to confer with the GP.R
on the matter. .    \   - '    -^
f "The committee" appointed pre^

had spoken* to Mr. Millie with refer- '/ A?y

that the chief dfficulty was-that the,,      ~£

The question of the disposal of
the land won at last year's Spokane
Apple Show was brought up, it
being mentioned that Mr. 'Gibb,
when at Spokane -did not have
time to look over the property.    ,
Mayor DeHart explained*' that
the land in question was valuable,
and was irrigated by means, of a
pipe system. , ,
Mr. D. W. Sutherland moved
that means should be taken to find

Mr. G B. Daniel suggested' that
the banks in the localities .should
be written to and an estimate on
their value obtained in that manner
also that die district assessor be
asked to value the land.

Editor Orchard C.ty Record,
Sir,—In your editorial on the
Canadian navy quest'on you infer
that, the chief objectors to a local
navy are the sliip-buslcloi. of the
old country who aie nfler contracts.
I think that statement is hardly in
accordance with the facts. No
doubt a local navy is bound to
come sooner or lalei, but ihe present extremely dangerous European
situation cannot be ignored, and if
we possessed a local navy aL the
present time we should not as a
partner in the firm of John Bull &
., Co   sacrifice   the   strength   qf  the
> g£ the* home fleet, or concentrate
all our attention on our own navy
to  the  detriment of.that squadron
, which must always remain out onl}'
real protection. Ii guarantees the
heart of the empire, nnd at the
same   time   the empne I'-clf from
, disaster.    A local nav}', if efficient,
.will, guarantee   us ,against   a few
■ individual    corrlmerce   destroyers
"which   mighl   break  through   the
/ BntisK cordon.    I refei to a poss-
^ihle" wari-with   Germany and hei
allies^and'it is "only by a study of
the concrete conditions of the particular   conflict  we   ha-.e   in' mind
that we can  arrive at a sine conclusion.     Our  local  fleet, for decades   to   come, would "only be a
*   mouthful fo,r the fleet^of any great
■ , -naval . power — Germany,* for  in-
'"_ stance—if  the   Royal   navy   were
''defeated.    It "is as- much our duty
.'as'the   motherland's   to keep the
7 premier* fleet up^ to the mark, and
qur'local fleet must be regarded as
■ 'ot minor importance* from'a strategical _andf practical, view-point.
With the supremacy of .the lioind*
fleet* assured by ' the combined
efforts   of  the   British Empire, our
- - local fleet might indeed do good
^service in protecting our ports and
.,"*commerce, 'but  it   would   hardly
render any "practical aid to Britain's
"7;b£ttlfe flei^t(in a great naval action
Germany is only a few hours steam
, from Sheerness, and a naval campaign -"might -easily   be,' decided
*. before  our   local   fleet , got   well
- 'starred, supposing we should aspire

The Rutland Literary Society
met at the home of Mr. C. H. Leathley on Friday last, * the evening
being devoted to a study of Tennyson and his works. A large number of people were present and an
inteiesting evening was spent. Dr.
Baker introduced the subject by a
short character sketch of the poet,
when Miss Fullerton read " The
Children's Hospital," a work which
perhaps more than any other shows
Tennyson's intense love for children. Miss Gladys Bird read "Dora,"
and Miss Ida Fleming sang "Some
Day," and Miss Lillian Sproul recited " Minnie and Winnie." Selections were also given by Dr.
Baker, Mr. Leathley and Mr. Dickerson.
Tomorrow (Friday) the Society
meets at Mr. S. Sproul's, when a
discussion, on " Socialism" will be
led by Mr. Geo. Stirling Next
week being Christmas eve there
will be no meeting, but the week
following an inter-debate has been
arranged between the Ellison and
Rutland societies.
Mr. Reed met with a nasty accident last week. He and his partner Mr. Green were levering a
large stone out of a well when the
plank slipped and caught Mi. Reed
an undercut on the jaw, causing
him to see stars, and also several
teeth. This method of extraction
could scarcely be called "painless."

Provincial Paragraphs
Doped Whisky.
Both the city of-Fort William and. the
Ontario Government are cons derably ex-
ercised as a result of statements made by
the city police and .the coroner, G. W.
Birdsall, to the effect that 'a new,™ hislcy,
which contains sufficient poison or "dope"
to kill the person who drinks it steadily for
a few weeks, is being sold across bars at
Fort William. Several recent deaths have
been traced to poison from drink, and one
man about three weeks ago went blind
after taking five drinks. He may never
regain his eyesight. At an inquest held
the other day on the remains of a
man who went to sleep in a drunken
stupor and never awoke, coronor Birdsall
said that morphine in the liquor would
affect the optic nerves. A special dispatch
to a local daily from Toronto stales that
the Ontario government will at once institute a rigid investigation into the affair.

Winter Injury to Fruit Trees.
The following article from the report of
the horticulturist at' the Central Experimental Farm, Ottawa, is so full of interest-
mattei and valuable advise to the fruitgrower as to the care of his trees during a
severe winter or unfavorable weather conditions, that we think a useful purpose
might be served by reprinting the whole
During the past twenty years much experience has been had at Ottawa in winter
injury to fruit trees, and the observations
which have been made during that time,
and the conclusions drawn and recommendations made are now summarised, in
the hope "that- much injury may be prevented by adopting the best methods. It
would appear that there are at least ten
distinct forms of winter injury. ,
if one could make an accurate estimate
of the number of fruit trees which have
been winter killed in the colder parts of
Ontario and the province of Quebec, the
figures would be astounding, they would
be so large. Trees which were killed the
year after planting; trees which were
killed just when they were beginning to
bear fruit; and trees which were in their
prime and bearing bountiful crops, all have
suffered. This terrible destruction from
winter haa caused great discouragement
among the people, and has been one of
t e belief causes of the slow development
of the frUit industry in the colder parts of
'Much "of'this loss could have'been
avoided if the hardiest trees only had been
planted, but how f w there are who know
the details connected with the establishment and maintenance of an orchard, and
who know there is almost or quite as much
difference in the hardiness of vaiieties of
fruit as there is between the hardier and
tenderer kinds of vegetables. All farmers
have learnt by observation that with a veiy
slight frost potato.tops will be killed, but
that it will take a much lower temperature
to kill a cabbage. But the cause of death
in fruit trees ' still continues to be a very
mysterious thing to most farmers, who
when a tree has been root killed, for instance, sees^ it, leaf out and bloom but
eventually wilt under his very eyes in the
summer from no apparent cause. Unfortunately this lack of knowledge on the
part of the farmei has been taken advantage of by unscrupulous men, and farmers
have been urged to buy the varieties of
fruit which appeal to them most strongly
in the colored plate, or from the glowing
description of the agent. Of late years
our. best nurserymen seem to be impress-
ing upon their agents the importance of
offering only those varieties suited to the
district in which they are sold, and we
have been very pleased to have these
agents call upon us at the Central Experimental Farm and get what information we
could give them on the fruit most suited
to the district they were working in. For
a long time it was not known what varieties
of fruits were hardy in the different parts
of the provinces of Ontario and Quebec,
but experience has taught which will succeed, and the results of this experience
have been recorded. With the literature
now available and the information which
may be obtained by applying to the proper
authorities, there is no reason why anyone
should plant varieties which will not succeed with him, provided he has the
proper soil in which to grow them, and
gets good trees and looks after tliem
The forms of winter injury which will
be discussed here are root-killing, bark-
splitting, trunk-splitting, sun-scald, trunk
or body injury, crotch injury, killing back,
black-heart, killing of dormant buds, killing of swollen buds.
ROOT-KILLING.—Root-killing is caused
by the exposure of roots to frost, a d by
the alternate thawing and freezing of the
roots. It is most prevalent in winter when
the soil is dry and when there ,is little or
no snow. • It is of very common occurrcr.ee
in Manitoba and the Northwest provinces,
and in the states of Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, and Dakota. Roots are in many cases
tenderer than the tops, and are sometimes
killed when the tops remain uninjured.
Some valuable experiments were conducted
by the Nebraska Agricultural Experimental
Station to determine the condition under
which root-killing occurred. Trees were
planted in boxes 2 feet' square and 18
inches deep, each box having 25 young
apple trees. Six boxes'were left outside
about the middle of December with soil
having different percentages of moisture.
One box was covered with a mulch of
straw 4 inches deep. One was kept
covered with about 4 inches of snow
whenever snow fell. The remaining boxes
were left without any covering, any snow
which fell being swept off. The trees
were examined in February, when out of
25 apple trees set in the unprotected box
containing 10.4 per cent, of moisture, the
roots of 20 trees were dead and the remaining five uninjured. In the unprotected
box containing 15.2 per cent, of moisture,
19 trees were dead and 6 injured. In the
box with a moisture content of 19.8 per
cent 3 were dead, 10 injured, and 12 uninjured. In a box with 25.6 per cent, r.ois-
ture,"8 trees were dead, 4 injured, and 13
uninjured. The box covered with straw
mulch contained 16 per cent, of moistuse,
and none of the trees were dead in this
box and but 7 injured. In the box occasionally covered with snow and containing
15.8 per cent, moisture, 7 were dead and
8  injured.    Not  a   root  was injured in a

Corner of Lawrence and Pendozi Streets.
] box   stored   in   a cool dry cave, though it
I contained but 10 per cent, of soil moisture.
' These figures are very striking.   The fact
, that the trees kept in a cool dry cave were
, uninjured was believed by the experiment-
| ers   to   prove that cold as well as dryness
was   necessary  to   cause the death of the
roots, which is borne out by our own ex-
l perience.     The   fact   that   the injury was
< found to be so great in the dry soil would
! appear to show that the dry, cold air entering the soil killed the roots by dry freezing
and that in the soils which were moist even
thawing  and   freezing  would not destroy
them.     As  the   soil  in  ihe provinces of
Quebec and Ontario is usually moist in the
autumn and further drying out is usually
prevented by a covering of snow, root-
killing 'doaa not often occur, there having
onJy been three times during the past
twelve years when there has been much
injury. This infrequency of root-killing is,
however, liable to make fruit-growers, careless, and a time comes when an orchard is
just in its prime when the trees are pwept
out by root-killing to the owner's great
disappointment and discouragement.
"What   then   are the^preventives of root-
killing .

sizes are on display, not to mention
the large assortment of silverware
and dainty ornamants. Watches
and clocks too are also on view in
an attractive manner, and- a step
inside means a purchase sure.
The next store along the Jong
line is   . >
Lequime Bros. & Co.,  '
where can be found all sorts and
descriptions of good things suitable
for the Xmas table. Figs, dates,
plums and .other fruits, together
with the usual dried fruits that go
to make the usual Christmas Plum
Pudding, This only deals with the
grocery side of the question, for
what is the use of these dainties if
you have nothing to eat them off. Le
quime-Brbs. arejnaking a speciality
of ornamental china sets this year,
and certainly are' displaying some
fine pieces'of the potter's art.
The' dry goods department is
well worth a visit,'for even though
the variousl assortments of suitable
Xmas presents are so bewildering,'
it is not long before a choice can
be made from the numerous articles
on display.   '     , " _ -
Passing along the street, we take
a glance in .window of
Kenneth F. Oxley.
He has'only been here a few
weeks, but a glance at. his window
shows that he is'open for, business
and a lot of it too. Fruits of all sizes,
shapes and colors are here, not to
mention the cranberries; many of
which will go to make jelly or
sauce for- the Xmas Turkey . or
Goose.      i " ;

are carrying as usual a good show
of turkeys and other Christmas fare
including the sausages which are
a most important'accompaniment.
, D. Leckie & Co.
Skates and stoves, (a very good
combination for the. winter) are
tastefully displayed, the former being wreathed in holly in the window
Cutlery, too, forms,a part-of the
window-display, but. the same as
reveals numerous other handy
articles which make desirable gifts
at all times as well as Eit Xmas.
Although the next store of
Biggin & Poole
is mentioned down the list a little
way, their store is usually'the first
consideration of the housewife at
this particular tiu.e'of the year.
Pies,- puddings, chocolates and
tempting Christmas Cakes are 'all
displayed with excellent taste/ and
many will be the small boys who
flatten theix noses against the windows'of the store,, longing for a
good big lump of that ice covered
cake and a box'of those chocolates
the very sight of which makes ones
mouth water. Still further along
we come to^the store jointly occupied by
Parker and Trench.
The former, as jeweller, displays
in one window a choice assortment
of Yuletide gifts and it would be
a hard task to find which one would
be the most acceptable to the'
Mr. Trench has somewhat departed .from his usual line and has
his store window filled with toys of
all kinds and descriptions, ready
for the stocking and the Christmas
tree, but his special line comes in
later on, when everyone is sick
with an overdose of Yuletide fare,
and physic plays a great part in
the recovery from this over indulgence.

Mr. Crawford has done full justice to his large new store by making a fine show of * toys and fancy
goods as Christmas gifts for young j
and "old.-..Tasteful  calendars   and

Thomas Lawson, Ltd.  '
This firm can be congratulated
upon a vety attractive window display this   season,   and   for  artistic
arrangement their   china   window
is one of the best   they   have  yd
exhibited.     Stockings   filled   vilh
Xmas candies and a host of other
seasonable  -delicacies   form    the
display in another window, while
the other two arc utilized   for the
display   of   neatly    embroidered
table linen and other dry goods.
To  frame  a good "opinion   as to
what the store really carries, a  trip
inside is   the onlj   way of  finding
out, and  the   various articles displayed inside almost bewildering.
Mr. Lawson believes in giving  his'
customers   choice,    both    in   the!
description of the articles and  the j
quality' of  the   goods,   and so he'
cannot  be' blamed    for  puzzling'
them with such  an  unlimited .dis-'
play. ' ^

little doubt that "once inside, one is
forced (of your own free will) to
buy something. ■ The window display s usually the best, and the
best has exceeded itself this year,
possibly owing to the increased
window space and the commanding position they occupy on-the

good advantage in the windows.

C. C. Josselyn *■
has had a hard task putting in an
attractive window. He, however,
can be congratulated on 'having
been successful, despite the difficulties. All you need for the Xmas
dinner,is Here displayed. .Figs,

Origin of the Cherry Tree.
As a cultivated fruit the cherry is of
eastern origin The first garden cherries, as well as the name, have coina
from an . la di." tovn on t,.? so. them shores of the Black Sea. The
name of the colony was Cerasos, and
the inhabitant, cultivated the cherry.
So in Greek, the cherry became
cerasos, in Latin cerasus, in French
cense, in English cherry. Pliny^ relates that the Roman General Lucul-
lus, conqueror of the great Mithrii
dates, brought the cherry . from
Cerasos to Borne. A tree laden with
fruit is said to have adorned his triumphal procession In the course of
the next 120 years*the culture of the*
cherry had spie.'d far and wide' and
reached even remote Britain.—London
"v?   the Second Fiddle".'      ~-*A'1
The second-fiddle is, on the whole,,
the most widely played of all instruments—fortunately, .since it i.s .so especially the instrument of harmony.
A great many men have an aptitude
for the second fiddle, and, where they
take it up at once without too much
vain experimenting with more pretentious parts, they find much satisfaction in it. There is plenty of poor
woik done with the second fijldle,
though. Men who are forced to it by
marrying or other mischance are very
likely to-play bail]'.-
A master of tho second fiddle is not
least among masters, and he has * besides the promise nf inheriting the
earth.—Puck.    -

An Attentive Daughter.
, "I don't see why you are not as considerate of my comfort as you .used to
be ot your father's," remarked a husband to his wife, who had shown signs
of neglect. "When I come into ,the

und everything else I happen to want,
but when* I used to court you, and
your-father would como in from the
