Canadian NationallMoiting % Death of
Apple Show
To Be Greatest Ever Held in
AA   the World   ,
_• 1-
A determined   effort   is   being
made  in  Vancouver to  hold an
„ A apple. show this year which will
;; outdo anything hitherto attempted.
Mr".'-Maxwell Smith, former government fruit, inspector, but now the
editor of the Fruit Magazine, who
is  taking  a  leading part in   the
"    movement, speaking at a meeting
' of the  managers of the show'at
Vancouver on Monday, said :
"There is every indication that
' the greatest apple'show ever held
in: the  world   will  take  place in
Vancouver beginning October 31.
Everything  points  to  this  as the
psychological year in which to inaugurate and permanently establish
a  Canadian national apple show.
v    The past season was an "off" year
in fruit all. over the American continent, and iii all fhe provinces of
Canada and the western states the
trees have wintered well; and the
best of prospects now prevails for
the-proper crop.
„     "It is most fitting that/the first.
Canadian    national ; apple-/show
"should be held; in -the commercial
and educational centre ot Canada's
largest provinces    : A
" With about $25,000 to be distributed in prizes, 2,000,000 apples
' on  display, and the presence7of
thousands of visitors from various
parts of tKe civilizfed world, iiiclutl-
" ing    the   foremost -^ruit-g^wefs,
A, judges, dealers, and consumers,;all
>   £psen»bledInthespactqusholding
.%r the Vancouver Exhibition'Association,  what   better   opportunity
could  be  afforded  our guests of
seeing a practical demonstration of
the  climatic and  soil   conditions
and i productive    capabilities   of
:. many parts of the great continent
of North America and particularly
of British Columbia."
In the course: of his speech he
gave some interesting facts respecting the fruit-growing industry of
"• British Columbia.
"There are at present" he said
"about: 125,000 acres planted in
fruit in British Columbia out of a
possible 2,000,000 .acres. The
,' total value of the fruit barring un-
foieseen mishaps,; will approach
the one; and a half: million mark.
It must be borne in mind that only
a portion of the above acreage is
is now in bearihg. We at present
_ supply only about 15 per cent, of
the fruit consumed in the prairie
provinces of Alberta, Manitoba
. and Saskatchewan. And taking
into consideration thev rapidity
with" ~whichA thM^provfhceisTare
being settled, the enormous possibilities of British Columbia as a
fruit growing province must be apparent to the casual observer. While
- British Columbia has won out with
flying colors wherever they have
made exhibitions on a small scale,
the first Canadian ^national apple
show will give an opportunity of
making a demonstration in force,
which should verify and confirm
all of the authentic statements
concerning the fruit industry made
by the publicity men ih the province.
" We expect to have an exhibition
of between fifteen and twenty full
cars of apples of which British
Columbia will furnish more than
half. The prize list is being so arranged as to give all of the fruitgrowing provinces of the Dominion
a fair opportunity as well as the
neighboring states"..
the King
Intense resentment has been
caused in Liberal circles'by-the
revelation that a movement is on
foot to exploit the mood of the
nation resulting from the death of
King Edward in the interests of
conscription. The proposal is that
the memorial to Edward VII. shall
take the form of a voluntary demand on the part of the, people
for military jservice1.
It is argued by the promoters of
the scheme that universal military
service is not conscription and that
it would strengthen and consolidate
the Empire as nothing else can
and thus make for righteousness
and peace. The fact is disclosed
that before the king died a petition
was in circulation praying his majesty to take a stand in favor of universal military service.
To-day the.Liberal papers hotly
denounce this petition/ declaring
that if the militarists think the quiet
mood prevailing can be utilized to
allay the political crisis by forcing
the pace in the direction of conscription they speedily will be disillusionized. The .matter seems
likely, unless the petition is at once
dropped to provoke a national uproar.
Friday Band Concerts
The /Kelowna Band will give
give the first of their series of Friday evening concerts in the park
next week June 10th. These concerts formed a very pleasant and
attractive feature last summer, and
the band leader, Mr. T. Robertson,
is working hard to provide some
really first-rate music for the coming summer. The concerts are to
commence at 8 o'clock, and. as the
band has obtained the permission
of the council to use the booths
under the band stand, arrangements are being made for the sale
of refreshments and ice. cream
every Friday night. •
. The' programme   arranged   for
next-Friday is as follows:

Throughout the west rain has
fallen at irregular intervals .during
the past week, but the weather has
frequeritlg been cold and unseasonable, the rain turning to sleet, and
has been expressed mat the cold
weather will retard the grain growth
which however is fairly vigorous,
all the wheat and oats being above
ground, and.the sowing of barley
There does not seen to be any
real danger, and the underground
growth will probably be vigorous
for the retarding of the plant above
and the moisture now being stored
will later prove valuable in the warm
dry, spells.
The general ciop through Manitoba and Saskatchewan is favorably
reported on from all large centres,

Waterway from   Edmonton
to Winnipeg
A survey is to b£ immediately
commenced to asceitain the possibility of making a navigable route
between Edmontonand Winnipeg
by. way of. the North Saskatchewan
river and Lake Winnipeg. Explorers have reported that a six or eight
foot waterway can be established
on this route at a comparatively
loVv cost with few locks as the river
has a deep broad channel for nearly the whole distance. A vote of
of $ 10,000 Was made by parliament
last session to defray the cost of
survey. The survey will be made
under the direction of L. R. Biligny
who was one of the sub-chiefs on
the Georgian Bay. canal survey.
Five parties will go in and carry on
as many sections of the. route. It is
expected that the work will be finished this summer.

Messrs. Dalgleish & Clenn have
delivered to the Central Okanagan
Lands, Ltd., during the past week
three cars of engines 'and other

A correspondent in  the "• Free
Press"   states  that   for   anything
bearing close resemblance tol the
present  virulent    gambling   fever
over rubber shares in England, one
must  go  back  to   the  South Sea
bubble.    Men and women   of all
grades and conditions have been
smitten by it.     My lord and  his
valet,  my   lady   and   her   maid,
clergymen and clergymen's widows
merchants, clerks, newsboys, waitresses,    seamstresses    and    even
chimney sveeps have joined in the
wild rush for shares.    Bridge has
to  a  large   extent   diminished  in
popularity owing to the keener excitement offered by the opportunities for a flutter on   'Change in the
indispensable elastic product, and
even   the   extraordinary   political
situation   has  been   engulfed   by
rubber as a dinner table topic.
The extent to which the public
enters into it may be gauged from
the fact that no less than five two-
cent weekly papers been started
within the last few weeks devoted
exclusively to rubber and rubber
shares. And each of them claims
to be the only journal which provides the innocent and ignorant
investor with such reliable information that can launch his little bark
safely on the sea of rubber speculation with the assurance that it
will return to him freighted with
tSince the beginning of the year
nearly 200 new rubber companies
have been floated, their combined
capitals aggregating something like
$100,000,000. Each day sees a
new rubber company added to
the list —sometimes three or four.
Promoters only have to assert that
their lands in some out of the way
corner in Africa, Asia or South
America can grow rubber and the
demented public scrambles wildly
to buy their shares.
A report from Pittsburg states
that another invention rivaling in
importance that of the air brake
has been completed by George
Westinghouse. It is known as the
air spring, and by it, Mr. Westing-
house asserts, the expense of running all rubber-vehicles will be
decreased at least 60 per cent,
since the rubber tire may now be
dispensed with. It is claimed for
the new invention that it will
ultimately reduce the price of
automobiles one-half. For many
months Mr. Westinghouse has
been working night and day on
the air spring idea.
The hew air spring idea, which
is now being tried out in Pittsburg,
is a series of plungers working on
air cushions, on the same principle
as an elevator plunger. The air
spring is placed under each corner
of the frame of an automobile and
takes the shock in with greater
ease than does the rubber tire now
in use. Each spring. for an automobile is a cylinder about three
inches' in diameter and perhaps
ten inches long, the plunger connected with the automobile frame
working up and down as increasing or diminishing weight requires.
It is claimed by Mr. Westinghouse
that an automobile fitted with solid
steel tires and with air springs rides
more easily than does the rubber-
tired automobile of to-day. The
Westinghouse interests are fitting
up automobiles with solid tires and
the air springs in" demonstrations.

The generous offer of Mr.

consideration and possibly the
commission will journey down the
lake to make personal inspection
of the land offered.
Certain it is that if they will only
take the trouble to view the place,
they cannot fail t_ be impressed
with the many advantages which
it possesses.

bought a new two-seated car, and
Mr. R. H. Stubbs, a 22 H.P. touring car.
Mr. Patterson and his' son are
touring the district in search of land.
They have been over a good part
of the province and have come to.j
the conclusion that the Okanagan
presents more advantages than any
district they have yet visited.
Evidently the visitors from Vernon, who so narrowly escaped
drowning on Victoria Day have
not got their bumps of gratitude, if
there are such things, very highly
developed. \ The noble and unselfish efforts of those who, at
considerable risk, rescued them
from certain death, were probably
forgotten in their delight at finding
themselves still alive, but to leave
the town as they did, without one
single word of thanks to their deliverers, certainly leaves a bad impression behind. It is no easy
matter to run a boat out into the
lake during a wind storm like that
on the 24th. and no small credit is
due to those who were so unmindful of their own safety as'to hurry
at once to help. As an indication
of the difficulty, Mr. Calder's boat
sustained considerable damage, the
ropellor being smashed to pieces
•y a rope getting entangled in it.
A. Bv--' July 10 construction work
Will be started on the Kettle Valley
line, the 250-mile railway- to be
built between Midway and Nicola.
Tenders for construction have been
in the hands of Mr. Ji J. Warren,
president of the company, for
about two months, but.no contracts
have yet been awarded. Recently
Mr. Warren was in Penticton,. and
his early arrival on the coast is
looked for.
By its agreement with the Government of British Columbia—an
agreement ratified by the legislature at its last session, and involving the granting of a subsidy
of $750,000 towards the cost of
construction—the company undertook to start work within four
months of the date of the passage
of the bill of ratification. The bill
was assented to on March 10, so
that actual work must be commenced by July 10.
In addition to having a provincial
grant of $5000 per mile for 150
miles of the railway, the company
has secured the maximum Dominion subsidy of $6,400 per mile for
the entire mileage of the road,
which makes an average subsidy of
of $9,400 for the 250 miles to be

These trees have been culled from shipments made to British Columbia during
the winter and carried enough pathblogicl
germs in the bark.wood and sap to have

these trees would have1 caused had they
been delivered to the consignees may be
gathered from mention of a few of the
bacillus that were found among them, viz.
San Jose / scale, mytilaspis, ostreaformis,
root borers, root gall, anthracose and others
of an equally mischievous nature.
About 1,000,000 trees were shipped to
British Columbia during the winter and

As soon as a consignment of trees arrives
in Vancouver it is taken to the fumigating

The modern man and the modern
woman fear children because they
are the sworn foes of the selfish life.
It is easy to be selfish if you are
childless, for you can control your
finer Impulses. But a thoroughly
selfish father or mother is a freak of
nature. It is very hard to resist the
call of the child. Even the most
skilful brute is not sure of his
brutality when a child is tugging at
his heart-strings.
But nature has a way of getting
even with those who try to enclose
her and I am sure that they lose
more than they gain in the end.
There are two kinds of youth, the
youth you have yourself, and the
youth you borrow. There comes a
time in the life of every man and
every woman when youth hardens
into a dull, dry commonplace. They
cease to develop, to grow, to throw
out fresh shoots of interest and intuition. They struggle against the
atrophy which is stealing over their
souls, but they struggle in vain. The
only magic which can renew and revive and regenerate them is the
magic of childhood. They can enjoy
a second youth only by the grace of
little children.
Children are necessary for those
who wish to be childlike, who desire
to recover the lost simplicity of the
spirit. I sometimes think that simplicity is as rare aa polonium, an$ it
vanishes quite as rapidly. In fact,
simplicity is a grace that must be renewed every day. Perfect simplicity
is the art of the perfect cihfd. When
you come into touch with a child you
lose touch with the falsities of life,
and you feel a stirring of the heart
that makes you young again.
There is nothing in the world so
restorative as the virginal freshness
in a child's eyes. It is a severe test
to be close to a child's mind, and that
is why many of us dread children.
Children are our consciences, and as
a rule they are our guilty consciences, those terrible consciences
that make cowards of us all. We
can kill our conscience, btu we can-
foot kill our children. Their still,
small voices are never hushed in our
hearts. That is why children are
necessary. They keep the world
young and pure and gentle and
simple.—James Douglas in "Public

At the Maine Experiment Station
extensive tests have been made during the last two years to determine
the factors which influence the
hatching of eggs. This work was
suggested by the fact that when eggs
from a number of different females
are handled in the same way and put
under identical conditions of incubation it was found that those from
certain individuals showed a much
higher percentage of fertile eggs and
hatched chickens than did those
from other individuals. The aim was
to find the reasons for these differences and to decide whether there
was a likelihood that the production
of greater fertility in eggs could be
secured in time by any definite basis
of selection of breeding stock. The
work was done with painstaking
care by Raymond Pearl and Frank
M. Surface and reported in detail in
Bulletin No. 168.
It was found that apparently there
is a small but sensible correlation
between the fertility and hatching
quality of eggs. This means that in
general or on the average the hen
whose eggs run high in fertility will
also tend to show a high per cent, of
fertile eggs hatched. Conditions of
housing had a marked and definite
influence on the mean or average
fertility and hatching quality of the
eggs. It was found that both fertility and hatching quality of eggs
were very much better when the
breeding was done in a curtain-front
house, which furnished an abundance of fresh pure air, than when
it was done in what was formerly
considered to be a highly desirable
type of heated house, without curtain-front but with a supposedly adequate system of indirect ventilation.
The variability in' respect to both
fertility and to hatching quality is
markedly influenced by the conditions surrounding the hens.
It was apparently shown that the
individuality of the female bird is:a
very important factor in the determination of the fertility of eggs.
Different individual females have
characteristic degrees of fertility of
their eggs independent of the character of the male bird with which
they are mated. This fact emphasizes
the importance to the breeder of
trapnesting through the breeding
season at least.
The present statistics indicate that
there is no correlation whatever between winter (November to March)
egg production and the fertility 'of
eggs laid during the subsequent
hatching season. In other words .the
eggs of the heavy winter layer are
not more likely on the average to be
fertile than are those of the light
winter layer, other conditions being
the same. But there was a distinct
correlation between the winter egg
production and the per cent, of fer-
tije eggs hatched during the subsequent breeding season. It appeared
that in general the higher the winter
egg production of a particular bird,
the lower will be the percentage of
that bird's fertile eggs which will
probably hatch.
The tests did not show any marked
superiority of hens over pullets .in
respect to breeding performance so
far as either fertility or hatching
quality of eggs was concerned. It
must be understood that this Is
merely a statement of fact and does
not constitute any recommendation
for the use of either pullets or hens
as breeders. That question involves
more than the two factors here
under discussion. There is no ln-
Ucation that the fertility of eggs in
the pullet year and in the second
breeding year are in any way correlated. A bird whose eggs run high
in fertility in the pullet year is as
likely as not to produce eggs running low in fertility the second year"
and vice verst, when mated with the
same male or with males of essentially equal breeding ability as shown
by their pen averages. There was a
significant relation found between
the percentage of fertile eggs hatched
in the pullet year and in the second
breeding year. The bird whose eggs
are of superior hatching quality in
the pullet year will, on the average,
show the same characteristic In her
second year.
There was no evidence that the
fertility of the eggs, measured by
per cent, of fertile eggs, Is In any
degree or manner Inherited. The
hatching quality of eggs, measured
by per cent, of fertile eggs hatched,
was found to be definitely Inherited
ln the female line and probably also
in the maje line.

The Popular Coffsa  Trick  and
How It Is i-erformed.
Changing White Pap*' into Milk. Blue
Paper Into Mocra ana Bran Into Cut
Sugar !s Comparafv^y tusy When
You  Have  Been  S'u-u-n  the  Way.
A trick always jir.j'!ii:i; •.>•'• li the professional conjure! is Mini known as
the "coffee trirU. iiioii:_li some iiinh

about Mocha." Is iiciiei tor a pro

trick  is to be.     Ilie  link  is us smia
ble for the drnwiiiu r n as tin   ihe
Stage, and an ainaictii wuii a little
practice tnn.v do li easily K(>ineiinicr.
With a little practice, tor. like everything In coii.juniif: not only a little
but sometimes a };rcai ileal nf practice
is necessary it tlie perJnniier desires
to do his tricks wit li ease and suili
and so as to bewilder his audience.
When about to present this trick the
performer has on a tabic three wooden
boxes, a large goblet shaped glass jar
and two German silver "shakers" or
cups, sucb as are used in mixing lemon juice, ice. etc. for a glass of lemonade. In one of the boxes Is a
quantity of bran, in another some
pieces of chopped up while paper and
in the third a similar lot of blue paper. These, with two pieces of black
velvet, each about nine Inches square,
and a paper cylinder, are all that ap-*
pear to be used in the trick. Picking
np one shaker, the performer (ills it
with white paper nnd immediately
pours It back into the box. Again he
dips the shaker into tbe box and. with
a shoveling motion, (ills it and stands
it on a table so that every one may
see it. The other shaker he fills In
the same way. but with the blue paper. Finally the glass jar is filled with
bran and stood on a' table by itself.
Over one shaker is spread one of the
velvet squares nnd on top of It is
placed a small, round metal plate. The
other shaker Is covered witb the second velvet square, but without any
metal plate.
"Remember." says the performer,
"this cup is filled with white paper
and that one with blue." and. pulling
the velvet piece off one cup. he pours
from It Into a small pitcher about a
pint of mllk-"The milk of human
kindness as extracted from the daily
press." Removing the metal plate and
the velvet from the second cup. he
poors from it into the first cup "steaming Mocha coffee: no grounds for
complaint." Picking up the paper cylinder, he drops it over the upper part
of tbe glass jar, aud. lifting tt up almost Immediately, it is found that the
bran is gone aud the jar Is tilled witb
lamp sugar.
It Is a showy trick which Is generally followed by applause, tbat sweetest
of music to a performer. Here is the
In each box of paper is a duplicate
shaker, one filled with milk, the other
with coffee. Fitted Into the mouth of
each shaker is a shallow.metal saucer,
the edges flaring out so es to rest on
the mouth of the cup. At one point on
the edge of each saucer Is soldered a
semicircle of stiff wire about the size
of a dime, so that the performer may
easily grasjf It On each saucer is
glued some bits of tbe paper wltb
which the shaker is suppo,4d to be
filled. These shakers stand upright in
the box in sucb position that the wire
piece of tbe saucer will be toward the
performer when he is ready to remove
tbe velvet cover. As be shovels the
paper Into the shaker he leaves that
one in the box, grasps the other filled
witb milk or coffee and brings It out
some of the loose bits of paper clinging round the top. These he brashes
off careiessiy and in doing so. when
necessary, adjusts the shaker so that
tbe wire finger piece rfill be in tbe
proper position. In covering the shakers the performer takes bold of tbe
velvet covers so that the thumb and
tbe third and fourth fingers are under
the cover, and witb these be catches
bold of the projecting finger piece,
lifts up the saucers and draws tbem
off. dropping them instantly Into a podded box or bag fastened at the back
of the table.      ^
As a gloss jar ts transparent, It follows that a mere saucer of bran ln its
moutb would uot do, so resort is bad
to another device. A hollow shape of
tin. slightly tapering, that fits loosely
iij the jar Is used. The larger end,
Which Is tbe top, is closed wb,ile tbe
bottom Is opeu. From tbe top Is a fine
stiff wire passing from one side to the
other. It describes a small bow that
serves as a handle to- lift out the
shape. Bran Is glued over the outside
of the shnpe. unci some loose bran Is
spread'over the top. The shape Is
filled with lump sugar, placed inside a
second Jar and stood Inside the box of
bran. When the first jnr Is put Into
tbe box. ostensibly to be filled, the per
l.rmer exchanges It for the second.
This be takes out and *hows It apparently filled with brun. It Is covered wltb the paper cylinder, which
goes on loosely, and lu removing this
tbe performer slips one finger uud«.r
the wire handle, lifts out the shape,
ami the sugar fnlls Into the Jar. Aft
the shape Is taken out tlie performer's
hand passes carelessly over the box of
bran. Into which the shape is dropped.
At almost the same moment tbe paper
is crumpled up und-tossed lutu the audience The trick Is so ueatly done
and Is withal so simple that he must
be-s bungler. Indeed, who cannot deceive even n clever audience.

Frivolity and Gaiety  Are Their Chief
"There are no n>.;iim:_h women in
Spain," says Senoriia Carolina Mar-
cial, instructor ia Spanish at Welles-
ley College. "The charm ol the Spanish women lies in t'.icir extreme womanliness. They are petite and vivid,
and nothing besides home duties and'
womanlike pleasure, such as house-,
keeping and sewing, appeals to them.
They do not indulge in athletics or
in games of any kind, for this would'
be considered moet improper and unwomanly. The Spanish women go to;
bullfights less frequently than in olden
days, but they still attend these events
from a desire to be loyal to the Spanish festivity; also, perhaps, because
they like to improve every opportunity to be seen in the national head
attire, the white lace mantilla.
"Women of Madrid and other great'
cities are frivolous and gay. They
thoroughly enjoy all kinds of amusements; they attend regularly the opera
and theatre, for there is nothing they
enjoy more than good music and fine

through tb.6 Retiro and Paceo de la
Castellana, while receptions and balls
at court, dinners, small dances_ and
fancy dress parties at the foreign' embassies or at the homes of the aristocrats are the great events in the life
of the society belle.
"When the winter season is over the
Spanish aristocracy re-appears in London, Paris or Biarritz, while the well-
to-do people go to Valencia or to San
Sebastian and other summer resorts,,
and there they continue the same frivolous life.
"In the small towns the life of the
women is very dreary and dull. In no
country of Europe -do women leadi
more monotonous ana uneventful lives
than in the lesser places of Spain.
Early in the morning the Spanish
women, with black lace mantillas cov-i

black eyes, make their way to mass—
this is the only place where they may
go alone—and as they offer their prayers inattentively in the shadowy nave

hours embroidering, singing- as' they

"So they dawdle away the weaiy

How Victor Hugo Worked.
Victor Hugo always wrote standing
at a high desk especially constructed
for him, throwing off sheet after sheet
as fast as he filled it till he would bo
quite snowed up in leaves of foolscap.
He often rose in' the middle of the
night to note down an idea or a verse.
He got up for the day usually at sis
o'clock and would devote from six to
eight hours per diem to his work. E_>
made but few corrections, his poem-
being thought out complete in his
brain before he put pen to paper. It
is a'well-known fact that he indulged
in the arduous task of composition
while traversing the streets of Paris
on the top of an omnibus. When working out some great conception ha
would spend hours in this way.
Amazon Ant Gardens.
In the Amazon region "ant gardens'*
abound on a large number of woody
plants. They are generally spherical
in form and about the size of a walnut. They are formed by several 8p&
cies of ant, which appear to collect thai
seeds of many different plants and tof
sow them in these nests, covering up
the seedlings with, humus, when thaw)
begin to germinate. In the structrai
of these "ant epiphytes" the foliage
and the roots display characters!
which especially adapt them for thd
situation in which they grow and pto>t
mote also the protection of the aim
themselves in their nest. Quite a)
number of the epiphytes were fount!

luxuriant hair, know it does, and that is
why thousands of attractive women
throughout the land are regularly using it.
For years this almost marvelous grower

When the time approaches for
planting celery in the field, the
plants should be gradually hardened by exposure to the weather.
Celery plants when properly hardened will be unharmed by a moderate frost, and may be planted out
from the middle of May to the beginning of June. The land should
be well cultivated and finely
If possible, dull or rainy weather
should be chosen for planting.
The plant bed should be well
watered before removing the plants
and care must be taker, to avoid
injuring the roots. Shallow pans
are convenient for handling the
plants, and in hot, dry weather a
little water in the pans will prevent
wilting. If the weather is dull and
the soil is moist, it will not be
necessary to water the plants when
set out; but if it is hot and dry, a
good watering should be given and
as soon as the ground is dry the
surface should be stirred to prevent
baking. Watering the young plants
is apt to pack the soil too tightly
around their roots and should not
be done unless necessary.
Celery should be planted in
rows three to five feet wide and
four to six inches apart in the row.
The width between the rows is to
give room for cultivation and for
soil to earth up with; four feet will
be found the most convenient.
Some growers plant in double
rows. This is not advisable, except in very rich soil and where
water can be artificially applied.
The -old method of growing
celery in trenches is not now
generally used. The labour of
preparing the trenches and the
difficulty of cultivation renders this
method unprofitable commercially
Where level culture is practiced,
the rows should be slightly furrow
ed, so that the celery when planted
should be a few inches below the
level of the land. This will start
an upright growth.
Frequent shallow cultivation
should be given from the time of
planting throughout the growing
period. The surface should be
well stirred twice, a week during
dry weather and after a rain as soon
as the ground is dry. When the
roots of the celery begin to spread,
cultivation should be shallow near
the plants.
When the plants have been out
two or three weeks they must be
gone over carefully by hand, the
soil around and between them
loosened and all weeds removed.
The plants must nevar be allowed
to spread over the surface of the
ground, and enough soil must be
drawn up around them to secure
an upright, compact growth. This
process should be repeated as
growth contnues. Do not let any
soil fall into the hearts.
When the plants are nearly full
giown the earth should be drawn
up to half the height of the plant,
and one week later nearly *o the
top of the leaves. The blanching
process will take from ten to
thirty days, according ro variety.
Celery that is intended for
storing should be planted a little
later and not moulded up so much.
It will keep better if not quite fully
matured when dug, and if green
will blanch in storage.—Can Hort.

Once upon a time a certain Yorkshire town was placarded with huge
bills, which advertised in flaming
letters the tantalising information
Just that and nothing more, and the
town simmered with curious excitement concerning the identity and little game of "HE." The wave of
wonder grew. Then, when the time
was ripe, new posters covered the old
ones: —

on March 18, at 7.30 p. m.
Front Seats, 2s. 6d.; Back Seats, Is.
At the time appointed a great and
eager crowd filled the hall, for the
secret had been kept, and money had
flowed into the treasury like silver
rain. For nearly half-an-hour after
the advertised time the audience attempted — somewhat unsuccessfully
—to curb their impatience; then,
acting, no doubt, on instructions, the
hall-keeper drep up the curtain before the stage, and there was another
poster, as large as the former ones—
And so he had, and he had taken all
the  money  with   him,  too.—Carter

A runaway horse hitched to a ' blazing
popcorn wagon, and heading down Nicolas
Street Ottawa, and plunging into the Rideau
canal a mile away with flames of burning
gasoline tank spouting high in the air behind the terrified animal, provided an exciting spectacle last Friday. The gasoline
tank exploded as the driver was peddling
popcorn from his wagon on Nicholas street.
With the wagon ablaze and spots of burn-
gasoline covering the horse, the frenzied
animal bolted down the street, turned into
Echo drive, and at the end of a mile run
plunged into the Rideau Canal to escape
the flames. Humane Inspectar Lemoine,
with the assistance of a crowd of spectators,
succeeded in getting the horse, still hitched
to the charred remnants of the wagon,
ashore. The animal, though severely
burned came through the perils of flood
and fire without fatal injuries.
An imposing tomb is to be erected by
the Cotfst Indians over the last resting
place of Chief Joe Capilano. The building will be twelve by ten on the ground
and eleven feet in height. It will be built
entirely of rock.faced British' Columbia
granite. The entrance will consist of large
double bronze doors, and two leaded glass
windows will be inserted close under the
eaves. The cost of work will be $3500,
and will be subscribed entirely by the
Indian tribes in the province.
A novelty in the way of road making is
the great "apple way" between Spokane
and'Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. The new road
passes through Spokane valley a distance
of 30 miles and is 60 feet wide, and lined
on both sides with apple and.- other fruit
trees interpersed with English elms with a
fountain for man and beast at intervals of a
mile. The preliminary work on the road
is to cost about $5000 a mile and when
eventually macadamized will cost about
$300,000. The fruit trees will be cared for
by residents in the valley under the direction of a competent orchardist, and
water will be furnished for fountain and
irrigation purposes by companies operating
in the district. v

Professor Robert Koch, the famous bacteriologist, died last Saturday from a disease
of the heart. Professor Dr. Robert Koch
was one of the most eminent bacteriologists
of his generation. He became distinguished as an investigator of micro-organisms,
but probably gained most renown as the
discoverer of the bacill of tuberculosis and
cholera. He was graduated in 1886 from
the University of Goettingen, and while a
practitioner at Walstein began his researches
in bacteriology.

A Good Use for Whisky
The late Dr. Guthie was once maintaining the proposition that everything in the
world has its use4, and was good in its
place. A gentleman present, knowing that
the good doctor waa a teetotaler, asked him
how he would apply that to whisky. "Why"
said he, "there is nothing like whisky for
preserving a man when he is dead, but on
the other hand, it is one of the worst things
in the world for preserving a live man. It
kills the living and keeps the dead. The
only trouble is that many of the living don't
understand this distinction, and use whisky
at the wrong time. They should wait till
they are dead.
A California Experiment.
The Acton Free Press reports a visit
from Rev. Daniel Stewart, pastor of a
church at S'lma, Cal., who discussed with
the editor the question of Local Option
which is now interesting Acton voters a
good deal.    Mr. Stewart said :
" In my town of Selma we have had Local Option for seven years, and the results
have been most gratifying. Business has
improved, homes have been better supplied and are naturally more happy : the
town,has enjoyed an era of prosperity
never before experienced, The grass is
not growing on our streets either as was
prophesiee. The only place it is growing
luxuriantly now is in front of the gaol. We
have had snly three arrests for drunkenness
in the past five years. This in face of the
fact that towns five and six mile on either
side of us had licensed bars.
"Some of our business men were fearful
as to results: some actively opposed the
measure. Now, however, general business
has been known to thrive to such an extent that the merchants are all in favor of
Local Option.
"Mr Walter Scott, who went to Selma
from Paris, Ont., a few year ago and opened a general business and was opposed to
the measure. When the licenses were cut
off he soonvfound his business prospered
so freely that it was necessary to put on
another delivery wagon.
The hotel accommodation hat righted itself, and a new $20,000 hotel has been
erected recently.
The town itself has since enjoyed an
unpremeditated era of prosperity. Many
people come to settle three, feeling that it
is now a safe place to raise a family. The
population has increased over one-third.
The streets are kept in better condition; a
new sewage system has been put in; two
new grammar schools have been erected,
: costing $40,000 and $25,000 respectively.
Religious life and the moral tone of the
place having materially improved. During
the campaign Justice Tucker fought the
measure strongly; now he is one of the
most unqualified supporters of Local Option."
Powdered Milk
A new process has been invented by
which new milk is converted into powder,
yet it retains the taste, appearance and nutritious value. It is claimed that the digestibility is even greater than the other
milk. The milk is fed in jets through a
perforated supply tube at the rate of 80 to
100 gallons per hour, upon two hollow
cylinders, five feet in length by 30 inches
in diameter, revolving in opposite directions,
about one sixteenth of an inch apart, from
ten to fifteen turns per minutes. The cylinders are heated by steam at a pressure
of three atmospheres to a temperature of
about 240 degrees. The milk oozing slowly
through the narrow space is taken up by
adhesion to the heated surfaces and passes
around the cylinders as a thin and almost
invisible film of dried milk having about
the thickness of heavy paper. This is then
peeled off with a knife and falls into a
receptacle. It is then passed through a
course sieve, becoming a sort of flour substance. Twenty-two gallons of rich milk
will yeild about twenty-seven pounds of
milk after it has gone through this complicated , process.

"I have something for yon here, my
love," said Mr. Darley as he proceeded
to open a large, round box.
"What is it. precious?"
"Wait and see."
Darley carefully unwrapped the article aud disclosed a lady's bat.
"Isn't it a beauty?" he asked. "1
bought it inyseLf as a surprise to yo_
Don't you think it is a perfect dream ?"
Mrs. Darley gazed at the hat and
burst into tears.
"1 can't wear it!" she cried. "It
doesu't suit me at all. You meant to
please rae, 1 know, but it isn't my
style at all."
"Don't cry, dear. The milliner said
you could exchange it, and If you'll
agree uot to buy any ties for me hereafter I'll let you select your own hats
and bonnets."

"Well, auuty. what are your thochts

aunt, a decent body who had reached

"'Deed, lassie," frankly replied the
old lady, "I've had but three thochts
aboot it a' my days, an' the last is like

Politeness In China.
In China parents are held responsible for the manners of their children.
Accordingly, for the credit of their
parents, people try to be polite. If yoo
are mobbed In a Chinese town you
should look straight at one or two of
the people and say: "Your parents did
not pay much attention to yonr manners. They did not teach yon the
rules of propriety." A remark like this
will make the crowd slink away, one
by one. ashamed of themselves.

blow on the ueedle head The pressure to the square im-h at the point is
tremendous. So. of course. It can be
forced through almost anything, provided the ueedle is kept from breaking. For. this purpose the cork is supplied, which keeps the needle* from
starting to bend, having for this purpose what might be called an Infinitely inclined plane or straight line.
This pheno.menou explains several
things of frequent occurrence. Cyclones sometimes drive straws through
trees three and four feet thick The
compressed air round the straw keeps
It from bending, and Ihe enormous
force driving it forces it through.
Of course in the case of the Deedle
and, in fact, any pointed instrument

the advantage of tbe inclined plane is
made use of in continuing tbe motion.
As it takes much less force to roll a
barrel up an inclined plank into a door
than to lift it directly from the ground
to the door, so we can separate two
things or two parts of the same thing
easier wltb a pointed instrument
(which is the same thing as a round
wedge) than witb an instrument of the
same size all the way.—St. Louis Republic.
No 8uch Thing as Any Animal Having
More Than One Life.
Ail animals have the power to recover from injury occasioned by shock
—from being stunned. Insects are in
no sense an exception to this, and
most of tbem possess what has been
called tenacity of life to a remarkable
degree. A butterfly will sail away with
a pin through its body, an ant will go
floundering around after being cut in
two, and all insects will quickly recover from a blow, even if sucb may
dent or break their external coverings.
In sucb cases the inside parts are
mostly out of use for a short time,
somewhat similar to the case of your
arm when you have struck the "funny
bone" or to your foot when it Is
"asleep." But after a few moments'
rest the wasp can again resume its
A wasp is well armored, its exterior
covering is bard and almost unyielding. When it is struck a severe blow
the soft, delicate inner parts yield to
the impact; the nerves and muscular
tissues cannot operate in unison, and
the Insect may be said to have been
rendered unconscious as well as Incapable, for the "mind" actions depend
upon its entire nervous system.
But there is no sucb thing as an animal's having more than one life. When
crashed, dismembered, poisoned or
smothered beyond recovery, wben its
vital organs are injured so that they
cannot again resume their regular
uses, an Insect will die—not ln appearance, but really so. And this may result from the wearing out of its active
vital • organism, which may be caiied
old, age, after sometimes only a few
day8 or weeks of life, its one life has

Very Considerate.
A marriage advertisement Is published ln a Zurich paper by "a rich Swiss
philosopher" wbo wants a wife who
must fulfill the following conditions:
She must be beautiful in body, face
and mind aud possess beautiful teeth
and balr of ber own and not bought
articles. Besides German, she must
have a knowledge of English and
French, be a musician and have an
Irreproachable reputation. "Other
faults," the philosopher of forty years
states, "will be overlooked."
