The following extract from a recently
issued bulletin on Soil Cultivation is worth
The subject of evaporation is of interest
to the irrigator as well as the dry farmer
and it will pay both the irrigator- and dry
farmer to give it consideration.
Professor King has shown by repeated
experiments that during hot weather from
ground left in its natural state, water will
evaporate from the soil at the rate of over
one quart to the square foot per day; in
fact often nearly three pints. This shows
why it is imperative for the dry farmer to
cultivate his ground immediately after a
rain to check this enormous evaporation;
It also shows the absolute necessity for
the irrigator to cultivate as soon after irri ■
gating as the soil will permit, for the evaporation of a quart of water from a square
foot per day means that from every acre
of ground that is left without cultivating
there is a loss of 10,890 gallons of -water
per day and a loss in ten days of four acre
That is, if a man who irrigates put water on one acre of land sufficient to cover
that acre four inches deep and and leaves
it without cultivation, in ten days the
whole of that water will have evaporated.
A rough estimate of the acreage planted
to orchard in Kettle Valley is 1,000 acres
and during the summer months if this
ground is not cultivated directly after a
rain or directly after irrigation, from this
orchard ground alone there is a loss by
evaporation of nearly- 5,000,000 gallons per
day each and every day until cultivated or
until the moisture has all left" the soil.
" For clearer illustration let us consider _
ten acre orchard, a common size. Towards
"the end of June we usually get rain ;. as
soon as the rain stops loss by evaporation
begins; in twenty four hours 108,000 gallons
have gone, in five days 540,000 gallons
have evaporated, in ten days 1,080,000 gallons left the soil from the the ten teres of
ground. The man who has a sufficient
supply of water to irrigate with can replenish the ground, but why waste that
1,000,000 gallons ? Is it not better to cultivate immediately after the rain and save
the water that is already in the ground.
Of course with the dry farmer it is a
matter of much more vital importance for
if he lets 1,000,000 gallons of waste from
ten acres he'has no means at hand whereby he can replenish it: it is gone entirely
and before more rain comes the trees are
apt to be suffering from want of moisture.
As long as there is moisture in the land
it evaporates unless checked by a soil
mulch, and while cultivation.at any time,
will form a soil mulch and check evaporation the most perfect soil mulch can only
be made directly after rain or irrigation
before the soil has become dried. Every
day that ground is left without cultivation
after rain, water has left it at the rate pf
over 10,000 gallons per acre that the dry
farmer has no means of replacing.
Further it is most convincincingly argued
that products from ground treated in this
way are superior in quality and, flavor to
those where such over-irrigation has been
done as is necessary where this cultivation
as advised is not carried. out; while the
productivity of the ground is not only increased but conserved for the products of
value,, arid not wasted imweed growth.
News of the Valley.
The Armstrong Board of Trade
are petitioning the C. P. R. to have
the station moved further east. Its
present position, they contend,
causes it to be a nuisance and a
hindrance to traffic. Every train
which stops at the depot blocks
Okanagan street for ten or fifteen
Armstrong is starting an active
advertising campaign for the season.
Among other things they are preparing a new pamphlet showing
latest views of the district.
On Tuesday morning an accident occurred on the Pleasant Valley
road near Armstrong resulting in
the death of Clement Howden. As
far as can be ascertained—there
being no eyewitnesses to the
tragedy—the boy must have fallen,
been thrown from his horse, discharging a 22 cal. rifle which was
slung across his shoulder by a
piece of twine. The bullet entered
the right cheek and passing upward
penetrated, the brain, killing him
instantly. The body was found by
men working on the road and the
terrible news was conveyed to his
parents, who reside in town. After
viewing the body the Coroner, Dr.
Morris, decided that no inquest
was necessary, aa the death was
plainly accidental. The deceased
lad was about sixteen years of age,
bright and intelligent, and was a
general favorite with all who knew
him. His death is a terrible loss to
his parents who are heartbroken
over the-unfortunate accident.
Dr. K. C. MacDonald, of Vernon
has been appointed by the Dominion Government'to the position of
inspector of Indian reserves for the
interior of the province.
Mr. W. H. Tait, of Prairie Valley
met with a nasty accident last week.
He was hauling a load of cord
wood down a steep grade, when
the front portion slipped, causing
him to drop across the tongue of
the wagon. The team took fright
and bolted, kicking Mr. Tait under
the wheels of the wagon. He was
very badly bruised, but is reported
as progressing favorably.
Wingless Chicken is
Latest Development
Chicken wings will disappear from bills of
fare when the new wingless chicken, raised
by Mr. W. A. Bertram, of Illinois, becomes
common, says Science Siftings. He has
found that wings decrease the value of
chickens in cities and towns by making
their confinement in yards more difficult.
He conceived the idea of crossing common
bred* with Wyandottes and the barred
Rocks, whose wings are srfiallerin proportion to their weight than those of other
chicken. After several seasons he has
produced a fowl which has only a few
pin-feathers where Nature meant wings to
be, and which cannot jump a fence higher
than two feet. It will be easier, Mr. Bertram says, to fatten chickens which do not
reduce their weight by the exertion of flying. This will compensate, by putting
more flesh on drumsticks and wishbones,
for the ultimate atrophy and disappearance
of the wings.
Lays Black Eggs
Frank J. Dedrich, a farmer of Oxford,
N.Y. has developed a bred of hen which
lays black eggs. • He produced this result,
he says, by feeding the hens with fine
coal dust. The shells have been analyzed
and are found to contain the particles of
coal dust. According to Dedrich, experiments are being made to determine to the
value of the eggs as fuel. Next thing will
be wooden eggs from feeding sawdust.

The-Southern Okanagan Poultry
Association was organized in
Summerland last week. The
principal objects ofthe association
will be to improve the poultry
industry in every way possible ; to
better existing conditions ; . to improve the quality of the average
stock ; to place the industry upon
a substantial working basis; to
bring the poultrymen closer together ; to encourage others to engage in poultry raising; to increase
public interest and to make arrangements for the holding of an
annual poultry show. The fee is
$1.00 per year and about 35 members have already joined the association and more are expected to
come along every meeting. The
larger the association is the larger
the grant which will be received
from the government. The association embraces Kelowna, Peachland,
Naramata, Penticton and Summer-
land, and the following are the
office-bearers: Hon. President,
Hon. "Price Ellison ; president, C.
N. Borton; vice-pres., W- Dawson
(Peachland); sec-treasurer, W. A.
Summerland municipality has
refused an offer of 99 cents on the
dollar for its debentures, and
expects to secure 99_ cents.
The Penticton , baseball team
were to have played at Summer-
land on Thursday, but were unable
to get there. The launch which
was to covey the boys failed to
arrive, and Mr. Welby and team
were engaged to drive them up.
Someone gave the information that
if the new road, which is being
con8tiucted along the lakeshore,
was taken, they could make time.
When the party got two on three
miles from town they came to a
sudden standstill before a cliff a
couple of hundred feet high. A
rope and tackle would have' been
needed to have gone any farther,
so the boys had to content themselves with an afternoon's practice
on their own grounds. They have
not, however, abandoned.the idea
of' giving Summerland a return
Great disappointment is being
felt in Penticton at the decision of
the promoters of the projected
cannery not to commence operations this year.

SO many Kelowna people and others, all over the country have
been asking when we should be ready to put this beautiful
property on  the  market that we have decided to cut up
about three hundred acres of the pick of the Valley .into
which we shall offer for. sale about the end of this week, when the
maps can be seen at our office. These lots all lie within a mile of
the City limits, and command a magnificent view of the lake,
town, and surrounding country.
No finer spot could be chosen for a SUBURBAN HOME, and
no more fertile soil for an orchard.
TKe Water System Now Being Installed.
OUR,Company having set to work early in the year to put
water on this land, have already opened two miles of the
main canal, and with the large forces at present at work,
fully expect to have the ditch complete to the City limits by the
end of this year, so that purchasers of the new sub-division are
therefore assured of water for.next season.-
The source of supply is our large storage dam at the headwaters of Mill Creek, and the water is to be conveyed across Mill
Valley in a 32 inch rivetted steel pipe, and distributed over the
landby concrete lined ditches and cement pipe. A natural storage
basin sufficient to hold about 500 acre feet of water situated at the
upper end of the Valley will be used for a domestic supply.
The waste, overflow, and seepage will be taken care of by
laying a cement tile drain through the lowest portion of the Valley.
What's In a Name?
Not much in some cases, but when choosing
A New Name for Dry Valley
it means everything.
Mothers often have difficulty in deciding on a
suitable7 name for a promising baby boy. They can
think of none that will cover all his good points. The
officers of the Central Okanagan Lands, Limited, are in
just the same predicament in choosing a more suitable
name for Dry Valley, and to overcome this difficulty they
have decided to offer a
for what in their opinion is the most appropriate name
suggested for this lovely district. Each competitor is
allowed to send in not more than five names. The only
condition attached being that he must have visited the
Valley within two months previous to the 12th inst. at
noon, when the competition closes.
No officers of the Company are allowed to compete.

The Forestry Branch of the Department of the interior has just
issued its eighth bulletin, entitled,
"Forest Products of Canada." This
gives the result of the first
years' work by the Branch in col
lection of statistics regarding the
annual production in Canada of
lumber, pulpwood, poles, and other
wood products. The figures have
been compiled by Messrs. H. R.
McMillan, and G. A. Gutches.
These statistics have been compiled from answers to circulars
sent out by the branch to manufacturers in the different woodworking industries. While it is
not claimed they are complete, yet
the figures they give seem to be
the most comprehensive yet published.
The work is to be continued,
however, and increasing familiarity
with the work, both on the part of
the manufacturers and on that of
the branch, will doubtless bring
about greater accuracy and completeness in the returns.
The total value of the production
of lumber, lath, shingles, cross-ties,
poles and pulpwood, during the
year (1908) was $67,425,044.
The production of sawn lumber
is shown by the figures to be in
the neighborhood of 3,348,176,000
feet, board measure, per annum,
valued at $54,338,036. In this
Ontario ranks first, Quebec, second
and B. C third, with sawn lumber
to the value of $9,106,286. The
other provinces rank in the following order according to the amount
produced: New Brunswick, Nova
Scotia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba,
Alberta. The total production of
wood pulp is 363,079 tons.t
B.C. easily leads in the production of shingles, producing 7£4,
652,000, of the value of $1,391,306
Its nearest competitor is Quebec,
with $849,787. The other provinces in the order of production, are
Ontario, N.B., N.S., Manitoba, and
The total production of shingles
for the Dominion was valued at
In the manufacture of lath, Ontario takes first place, with $612,
856. Little more than half that
amount is credited to her nearest
competitor, New Brunswick. The
other provinces follow: Quebec
British Columbia, N.S., Saskatche
wan, Manitoka, Alberta.
During 1908 the railways pur.
chased 13,978,416 ties for which
they paid $5,281,685. Cedar, including both the eastern and western cedars, is easily the favourite
wood for ties, twice as many ties
being of this species than any
other, whilst hemlock and tamarac
in about equal numbers take next
Reports as to the poles purchased were received from 46 telegraph
and telephone companies, 151
electric light, power, and railway
companies, and 19 steam railways
owning their pole lines. These
companies bought poles to the total
value of $284, 549. The kinds of
wood favoured ih the order named
were, cedar (seventy-five per cent.)
tamarack, spruce, and Douglas fir.

Gioe No Alcohol to Children.
By Dr. Melx Kassowifcz.
At the Eighth International Congress
against alcholism held in Vienna, I defended the following propositions:
1. Seriou* functional disturbances, delirium tremens, alcoholic mania, epilepsy,
besides other demonstrable organic changes
such as enlargement of liver and dropsy
have been observed among children by
myself nnd others as the consequence of
alcoholic drinks.
2. These diseases originated not only
after the use of brandy or after excessive
doses of other alcoholic drinks, but frequently also during the habitual use or
wine and beer in quantities that did not
seem especially large, or during the administration of doses of cognac, so small
that commonly they are considered not
only permissible and harmless but actually
3. Such experiences oblige us to conclude that the nervous system of children,
as well as the child organism in general,
is particularly susceptible to poisom from
4. Children are not unfrequently permitted to use alcoholic drinks in good
faith, in the belief that moderate doses of
alcohol during the debility and diseases of
childhood produce a beneficial effect. It
can be easily demonstrated that this popular belief is without foundation.
5. By means of physiological investigations the former universal assumption that
alcohol possesses nutritive properties and
preserves the body from wasting away
has been completely overthrown, because
it has been shown that the secretion of
nitrogen, by which we measure tlie destruction of albumen in the body, is not
lessened by means of alcohol, but on the
contrary, it is increased.
6. This result of investigation is substantiated by the fact observed among
children that in consequence of protracted
■ use of alcoholic drinks they are backward
in growth and development.
7. The reputation of alcohol for promoting digestion is also unmerited, because
tests regarding digestion made on human
beings and animals have always demonstrated that alcohol produces a disturbing
effect. Th_ subjective impression that
would appear to contradict this fact is
because the sense of discomfort has been
benumbed, and not because digestion has
been actually promoted.
8. In many cases of loss of appetite
among children the habitual use of alcoholic drinks has been demonstrated to be
the only cause; after that was removed
the normal pleasure in eating returned.
9. As a means of combating fever
alcohol is useless, because even with very
large doses, such aa cannot be administered
to children without bad consequences that
are very marked, only a very small reduction in temperature is attained.
10. Numerous experiments have taught
that the stimulating effect for which alcohol is celebrated either does not take place
or it is of very temporary duration and is
followed in every instance by a depression
that resembles paralysis of the muscle and
nerve apparatus. Consequently, administering alcoholics for combating or even for
preventing heart weakness in case of fever
among children, has no scientific warrant.
11. The internal application of alcohol
•s an antiseptic, i.e., as a means of destroying bacteria, in acute infectious diseases of children is not rational, because
experiments with animals have demonstrated that the susceptibility to infection is
not only not diminished during the administration of alcohol, but is decidedly
increased. And, moreover, it is not comprehensible how alcohol can injure bacteria
within the living body, for the reason that
it is so easily burned within the body.

an orn.ment to the city, and reflects the
greatest credit on those who undertook to
provide for its constructian just a year ago
It stands four storeys high, adorning one

The Prince Royal came into Vancouver
last week with her flag at half mast, for
she had on board the body of F. C. Collings
, a passenger, who died on board when
the steamer was near Port simpson. He
was a resident of White Horse, where he
was employed as a telegraph operator for
the White Pass and Yukon ■ railroad, and
was on his way out for the first time for
eleven years. He was bound for his home
in Wisconsin. Owing to his not putting
in an appearance, Chief Steward Woollett
became alarmed, and climbed into his
room through a window. He found Coil-
inns in his berth, dead. The unfortunate
man had undressed and retired, and seemingly died in the night of heart failure.
He was 51 years of age. When the steamer arrived at Prince Rupert, the body was
taken ashore and put in 'a casket by a local undertaker for shipment to the home
he was on his way to visit.

Clearing Chinaat Half-price
We offer you something in China which
we have never offered before. We are
getting ready for New China now on the
way, and are giving such an inducement
on our present stock as to enable you to
help us in clearing off our China Shelves.
Our China has always been marked
in plain figures, and what we are
now doing is to cut the price in two.
In other words, in place of buying
any one article at a certain price,
you can get two of such articles at
that same price.
It depends on how fast the stock is cleaned
out as to the length of time these prices
will prevail. The sooner you come, the
bigger the stock, and the better the choice.

[    Tremendous crowds ushered In
! the big sale at Calder's and al! this
! week things have  been  humming
around the ' Sign of the Whale.'
Coming as many do from other
points on the lake, this big price-
cutting sale is not only leaving a
lot of well-spent money at Calder's,
but many other merchants in other
lines are reaping a distinct benefit
and thus the town as a whole
should welcome this bringing of
cash from outside points.
People are not fooled easily and
they know a good thing when they
see it, and thus the huge success of
this sale will keep up to the finish.
We congratulate Mi. Calder and
the Evely Sales Co. for the enthusiasm that they have infused
into the buying public and predict
a still further and greater success.

Czar's   Life  Continually   In   Danger—
The  Rarsian  Shah's   Belief.
Wherever he is, wherever he goes,
the Czar of Russia i_ surrounded day
and night by police and troops or by
battleships and polic patrols, says
an English writer.     $
Nor is the precaution unnecessary.
Without this strict guard his life
would not be worth an hour's purchase. There is- always at least one
plot on foot for his assassination, and
numerous attempts upon his life have
been made. But so far the keen and
restless watch over him has been so
successful that he has never actually
come face to face with violence.
It is for this reason perhaps that
he has .that personal fear of death
from which so many rulers are conspicuously free. The German Emperor, for example, goes about continually without any very effective
escort and has consequently looked
the would-be assassin in the face over
and over again. Whatever may be
his faults, the Kaiser has no lack of
personal courage.
But even his iron nerve may break
down on occasion. When he came to
England on the death of Queen Victoria a photographer managed to get
close to his carriage window, and the
loud click of the camera sounded so
like the cocking of a revolver that
the Kaiser for a moment changed
One who saw the attempt made in
Paris on the life of the late Shah of
Persia says: "The would-be assassin
jumped upon the step of the Shah's
carriage and levelled- a revolver
straight at the head of his victim,
pulling the trigger twice, but ineffectually. The Shah himself, looking
directly into the barrel of the weapon,
was the only spectator of the incident
who was wholly unaffected. As motionless as a graven image, the only
expression upon his face was one of
a slightly contemptuous amusement,
and when his assailant was removed
he dismissed the congratulations of
the officials with an airy *ave of the
hand, as though the matter were too
insignificant for notice."
Answering the more formal felicitations that followed later on, the Shah
remarked that if his death were not
ordained by fate he could not walk
unscathed among the united assassins of Europe, while if it were so
ordained all the soldiers in France
could not save him.

Not In Love.
The cashier of a French bank enters the private office of the president nervous and agitated.
"Sir," he says, "I have something
on my mind which I feel myself compelled to disclose, though for months
I have striven to conceal it. The
president turns pale. "The fact is I
love your daughter!"
The president breathes more freely.
"Ah, you love my daughter! Do
you ever make any errore in your
books or in counting your cash, find
yourself abstracted, eh?"
"Never, sir," with pride.
"Then, sir, I must decline to encourage your suit. You are not really in love."
