Alfl. Jones, Dalgleish and Copeland
being preeent.     '
A letter was received from' the
Kelowna Hospital society requesting the.council to pay the balance
due on Ole Berg's hospital account.
The Mayor explained that Mr.
Berg's home was in southern Alberta and that he had been taken
ill after working in the district for
some time. He had- been sent
home with his family at the expense of the city.
It was decided to lay the letter
upon the table .until the council
was satisfied that sufficient funds
were available tb . pay the sum
asked for.
The following letter from Messrs.
Whiteside,' Edmunds & Johnston,
solicitors for the  Okanagan  Telephone Co., was read:
His Worship!, the Mayor and Aldertnen,
" Kelowna, B.C.,
y..~ - ....   ' Nov. 10th, 1911.
■'-Gentlemen, •
As you'are no" doubt aware, the
'Okanagan Telephone"Company is author-
' 'ised by its act of incorporation to instal
and operate telephone ' l'ries '"through the
' cities, towns, and)''municipalities ^of Yale
Cfunty. The company deems it advisable
to establish a first-class and up-to-date
system in your city,' and we wish Iii* know
when it would; suit' yajit-., convenience >to
m$et the.company'a engineers and go over
the different streets and arrive at a mutually
satisfactory arrangement as to the location
of the poles, etc.
... We may add that the company contemplates the early extension  of  its Jines  to
Penticton,   which will  give" your. city., a
muck enlarged telephone connection.
Awaiting your favorable reply,
.   We''have the honor to-be,'•    , *
-       ■.. Gentlemen,      A~        _'..
Your obedient servants, ...
.,■   ■■  ■'  '   * v'' i'  '*   -    /'".
1   The mayor stated that during his
visit to the coast, he was interview,
ed by the" manager  of the ~ Okanagan Telephone Co., who 'informed hln that the company had purchased the phone systems of Vernon, Armstrong and  Enderby  for
, $37,000.   The manager had also
-' mentioned that it was the intention
of their engineers to visit Kelowna
to whiq'i the itfiyqr had  replied,
ll?.. that there could be no objection to
their visiting Kelowna to  take  up
. the matter.      »
The question jraised by the. letter was an inportant one and gave
rise to considerable discussion on
on telephone matters generally.
Aid. Copeland said he was, a
strong advocate of the city owning
its own telophone system.
In this connection Mayor Sutherland said he had been approached

held at Victoria to which he and
the City Clerk, Mr. G. H. Dunn
went as delegates on behalf of the

submitted by Mr. Millie was that
the city purchase . his system at
- cost - price, less' a reasonable
amount for depreciation. Upon
an option being prepared along
these lines by the city solicitor and
submitted to Mr. Millie, he had declined to sign it, claiming that he
was also entitled to goodwill which
he valued at ^$5,000. No. further
steps had since'been taken in 'the
Th* Clerk was instructed to
write to the manager of the Okanagan Telephone Co., stating that
the matters referred to in their
solicitors' letter had been covered
during his interview with the
In reference to the case of the
consumptive Nicolas Kramer, Aid.
Jones reported that Mrs. Krumer
was very anxious to have her husband returned to Tranquille Sani-
torium, and Krumer was willing to
go. The medical superintendent
of the sanitorium had stated however that he could not admit Krumer for at least a month, and probably not then as their accommoda-
was all taken up.
The city's medical health officer
visited Mr. Krumer, and had found
him living with his family. Dr.
Boyce had'suggested that a shack
near Kramer's houce be repaired
at a possible cost of $25, and that
he he required to live in it. This
was necessary for the safety of the
rest of the family.
In response to a request from
Aid. Jones. Mayor Sutherland gave
a brief report of the convention of
paid by the purchaser,
The convention had also decided
to request each hjunicipality to
contribute towards the expense of
having a complete bill fpr the government of municipalities drafted
by the Union. This bi^J would be
presented to the Attorney-General
with a request that the same be
submitted to the Provincial parliament along with a petition asking
that the present Municipal Clauses

The mayoi„also Said that as it
had been his intention previously
to visit the coast on private, business, and as the extra expense/ ih
connection with his . attendance
at the convention ,;hacl not been
great, while he thanked the ^council for its offer to pay his expenses
he did not intend to present "an
account for same."
Plans of the subdivisions of
Block 36, map 202 and lots I and
2, Block 57, Map 262 were presented and accepted by the council.
The meeting then adjourned to
meet again Monday.

7s-The council met again Mondajt-
afternoon at 2'o'clock, and several
important matters were dealt with.
An offer was received from the
Kelowna Land & Orchard Co.,
(which cancelled-a previous offer
made in April) to sell ,tp- the city
about sixty acres of land for the.
purpose, of a sewage iarm, at $200
per; acre. It" was understood that
a by-law was being prepared to
raise money to purchase this.
•It was, also mentioned that a
by4aw to bprrowr ^5,000 for the
extension of the water riidd' light,
plant wotjld be necessary. The
greater part of this was to meet
expenses already incurred, in making extensions of the "systems in
various parts of the city.
Aid. Dalgleish suggested the
borrowing o^money to build a
shed to house the city's implements and tools. The city was
buying   these things all the   time

the purchase of the lot at the corner of the park.*•'■'.-

A surprise party in which a large
number of Rutland young people
participated took place at Mr. John
Woolsey*8 Monday evening. The
object was to say good-bye to
Russel), who is leaving to spend
the winter in the east. A lively
evening was spent ih games, etc.
A good joke on Russell, who
prides himself on his " batching "
powers, was in having him bake
his own cake, not knowing it was
to be eaten in compliment to himself.

toput it. --'- '-'■ '"'y -■■-■■-- -----
It was left to the Board of Works
to prepare" an estimate of the cost
of such a building and submit it
to the council.
The mayor announced that the
city had received' on offer from
Mr. D. Lloyd Jones of the lot at
the north-east corner bf the park
for $ 12,000—$2,000 cash and $ 10,-
000 in annual payments of $600 or
$700 without interest.
There was very little enthusiasm
displayed over.the offer as the
price was cansidered rather high.
The terms were discussed at some
length and the opinion reached
that the city would find it , more
convenient to pay in cash by raising money on debentures. The
Mayor accordingly, got into telephone communication with Mr.
Lloyd-Jones, and asked (or a cash,
offer. The offer elicited was $10,-
After some further debate it was
decided that it would be wiser to
give the public a chance to decide
whether they would purchase the
property or not by preparing a bylaw to raise the money.. This
would have to be submitted to the
ratepayers and they could either
pass it or trim it down.
The matter of the, purchase of a
rock-crusher for which money had
been voted was raised. Aid. Dalgleish reported that the Kelowna
Irrigation Co., had set up and operated for the benefit of the committee, the machine they had for

An interesting event took place
Tuesday evening when some fifty
neighbors and friends gathered at
the home of Mr. and Mrs. S. Sproul
who with their familv are leaving
Rutland shortly for Victoria. An
address, which had been prepared
by the ladies' aid of the Methodist-
church, was read by Miss Lily Bird,
expressing appreciation of the
good work done in the past by Mr.
andrMrs. Sproul in connection with
bpth the church and ' the day
school, of which latter Mr. Sproul
has been secretary for many vears.
It was regretted that Mr. Sproul

Good wishes'were extended from

token of regard was tendered on
behalf, of the ladies' aid, arid, the
jdis^ict generally in the fnrm of.a
ibeaiftiful silver tea-set and-salver,
pjngraved with mono)n;anu7. Mrs.;

Farmers' Institute
The Farmers institute held a
meeting Sarurday last for the purpose of considering the question of
holding packing schools, a movement which,the Dept. of Agriculture are renewing this year. The
viee-president Mr,. W. H. Raymer
presided oyer a rather poorly attended meeting.
Messrs. JV1. Hereron, W. A. Scott
and Colin Smith spoke on the subject in hand, and favored the continuance of the packing schools in
the district It was felt to be necessary to give the rising generation
at least an opportunity of learning
the art of packing.
A resolution was passed that the
meeting was in favor of holding a
packing school in Kelowna provided a sufficient number bf pupils
made application.
The secretary was also instructed to ascertain whether the people
of Rutland were desirous of holding a packing school, and if so, to
see that necessary application was
. Mr. W. A. Scott suggested that
the government be asked to send
an expert to enquire into the cause
of a disease which had affected the
onion crop. It was decided to
make the request for an expert lecturer on onions and tomatoes.
East Kelowna

of the Kettle Valley Railway Co.
The Railway Company submitted
a proposal to the council which
practically meant that the latter
waive thei«- right to hold the company to a time limit for the construction of their line, which the
council could do under their agreement granting aid in the way of
land for station and tracks.
Penticton, it seems, is gradually
getting disgusted with the Kettle
Valley Co.,.and indignantly refused to entertain the proposal.
On the contrary the Board of
Trade got together in strong force
and passed the following resolution
which was ordered to be sent' to
the Dominion and Provincial governments, the local members, and
the towns interested in the early
consumation of the Kettle Valley
Railway Company's obligations.
That Whereas, the Kettle River
Valley Railway has entered into
an agreement with the district
Municipality of Penticton, to build
a railway, east and west through
And, Whereas, under the. above
mentioned agreement, the Municipality of Penticton has paid the
Kettle River Valley Railway a
heavy bonus for the building of
the said line,
And, Whereas, the Kettle River
Valley Railway has agreed to work
continuously, and with all due despatch, to complete the above mentioned railway,
And, Whereap, a large amount
of capital has been invested in the
town and district, in business enterprises, in view, of the rapid completion of the said railway. 7
hk JAffd.:Whereas, the Kettle River
Valley Railway has not, thus 'fair,
proceeded with the construction
of the railway through Penticton
within the time, and as expeditous-
ly as agreed upon with the Municipality.
And, Whereas, a notice has appeared in the Penticton Herald to
the effect that the Kettle River V^t
ley Railway intends to apply to
the Parliament of Canada for an
extension of time for the completion of its lines and branches under construction,
And, Whereas, the granting of
this extension of time will mean a
heavy loss to the business men and
fruit growers of this town and district,
Therefore, be it resolved, that
the Federal Government of Canada
and the Provincial Legislature, be
respectifully requested not to grant
the Kettle River Valley Railway
such extension of time as they ask
for, to complete, the building of
its lines _ and branches east and
west of Penticton.

practically every apple growing
section of the province this v. »r.
Not only is the interior affected, but
the coast as well, while probably
the greatest losses are leportcd
from the most prominent fruit sections. During the last six weeks,
enquiries ori the subject have increased greatlv, indicating a r^pid
development of the disease just
previous to and following shipment.
During the season of 1909, a
similar outbreak occurred, though
not to as great an extent ns tins
year. In some cases, there h_ive
been losses up to 25 per cent of
the fruit picked,and weareadvised
of other cases where large shipments have had to be sacrificed on
arrival at destination, because of
development in transit.
This trouble goes under a confusing variety of names. The principal ones commonly feiven are:
Baldwin Spot, Fruit Spot, Dry Rot,
Bitter Rot, Brown Rot, Physiological Dry Rot and Fruit Pit. In
Germany, the common name is
Stipon, or Stippichwerden; and
Bitter Pit in South Africa. No
scientific name has been given,
because no specific cause has yet
been discovered.-
When usually noticed, the appearance is that of roundish brown
spots just below the^Surface of the
skin of the apple, or perhaps up to
1-4 of an inch deep. When near
the surface there is a smaller circular depression just above the
spot.. On the coloured portion of
the apple: this depression is surrounded by slightly deeper colour,
and on the green parts ofthe apple,
the depression is deeper green
changing later to ' broWn. The -
brown spot is; pithy; in character,
dry andcomparatively tough. 'The
spots are generally from 1-8 to 3-16
in diameter and of not quite the
same depth.
As the trouble develbpes more
spots occur and finally the brown
may. extend in, a more or less complete network through the outer
tissues of the apple. The,affected
flesh is dry and flavourless but not
bitter. The appearance and sale-
ability aire"very much impaired and
even for cooking purposes badly
affected fruit is not of much use.
In the third stage the apple becomes practically entirely brown
and quite worthless.
In its first stages the Fruit Pit is
hard lo distinguish from the effects
of hail. Another type affects early
apples, particularly causing a more
or less complete browning of the
tissues surrounding the coro. In
this case the apple becomes valueless commercially before, its outward appearance is much sffectrd.
Variations of the above forms Y
and very similar forms 7B~re Tound
in'the Apple, Pear and Prune.
' This disease has been known and
been under investigation for thirty
years, principally in Germany and
during the last ten years especially
in the Unitt d States ard Cant-da
We have consulted all the available
authorities in Canada and the United States on the subject. They
are agreed that it is not caused by
any fungous, bacterium or insert.
The organism causing it is absolutely unknown. Spraying experiments have proven absolutely
valueless. Scientists are now thoroughly agreed in designating it as
a physiological trouble in the same
class as Water Core.

Advertising tales upon application.
Apropos of the matter of the
placing of a mail clerk on the s. s.
Okanagan, Mr. R. F. Morrison, as
a member of the committee who
waited upon the Hon. Martin Burrell during his visit to Kelowna, has
received a communication from
that gentleman which goes to show
that in ^pite of the many duties
which are beginning to crowd upon
him in his official capacity of Minister of Agriculture, he is still anxious to do what he can for the welfare of the valley.
The letter'-States'that the necessary authority for such a service
has now been granted by the Government, but that the C. P. R. has
not furnished the necessary accommodation on the steamer:
The Postmaster-General is taking
up the matter with the oompany,
and urging them to take action,
while Mr. Burrell hirrfself is communicating wih G-sptain Gore, of
Nelson along the same lines.
It is up to the various Boards of
Trade in the valley to now transfer their agitation to the C. P. R.
as we are assured there will be no
delay so far as the government is
The attention of the ratepayers
is drawn to the public meeting
which has been called by the council for Tuesday n xt December 5th
at 8 p.m. to discuss the four money
by-laws which are at present under
The bylaws, which involve the
large sum of $29,000, are of high
importance to the citj-, and it is advisable that they should be thoroughly discussed. The sums to be
raised are $5,000 for the extension
of the water and light plant; $13-
000 for the purchase of land for
a sewage farm; $10,000 for the
purchase of the corner reserved
when the park was sold to the city
and $1,000 for the construction of
a shed for storing the city's tools
and implements.
How to Get the Biggest
Egg Yield
The laying hen is usually searching for what she needs to make
eggs.'-, She takes What she wants
in the way of food and lets the,
rest alone.
If you compel her to take what
she doesn't want or take npthing,
whv.-of course, she will take what
you provide rather than starve to
death, but she won't lay   as   many
Therefore, we like the hopper
method of feeding. We always
provide a self feeder hung on the
wall, just high enough so the hens
can eat what they want without
wasting it on the floor.
A better method is to provide a
platform 1 6 inches or so above the
floor, so the fowl can jump up and
down for the feed and water they
desire, arid then go ' back to the
litter of work for the grain that is
scattered in it.
ln one apartment of the self-feeder, is grit, another charcoal,, another
oyster shells, another equal parts
of finely cracked corn wheat barley and oats, in another beef scraps
and in still another is placed dry
You5-might {hink that hens will
eat too much, but they won't, the*,'
they will eat only what they want.
When you find a hen that lives
off the feeder and gets fat and
lazy; she is usually too lazy to work
and too lazy to lay eggs,- and had
better be sent to the butcher.
Scatter the whole grain, sucl i as
wheat, barley and corn, in the litter.
Feed them whole corn at night, especially on cool-nights. They need
a crop-full to keep up the bodily
heat over night.
Give them table scraps and green
feed at noon. For green feed use
cabbages, mangel-wurzels, sugar
beets, chopped apples, etc. Onions
are also relished, but they are liable
to flavor'the eggs.
Noon is also a good time to feed
green cut bone. . Give them a little
every day, and only what they will
eat up clean. It is a; rich food, a
great egg-producer, and alitth- will
go a long Way. If you notice a
looseness of the bowels after iceding- it, cut down the amount.
Keep them always eager and
their appetites sharp for fresh meat
and cut bone,, and you will get all
the egj-.s you can expect. j
Once in a while feed a mash in;
the morning composed of bran,
middlings, beef scraps, etc., mixed
with a little milk or water. It must
not be wet and sloppy, but dry
and crumbly. ■ Feed them onjy
what they will eat up quickly ..and
cleanly. They shouldn't be allowed to trample on any that i- left
over, or to leave any to beccc
sour arid foul.
' Fowls should have plenty of
fresh water, and never warm it.
They like a cool, fresh drink, tlie
same as we do.
Provide a dust bath, sri they rv-iy
help to rid themselves of lice. Use
plenty of liquid louse killer n"d
keep the whole pen scrupulously
If a variety of food is given th'-re
is no need of fear about plenty of
egj;s. Do not feed full grain in
hoppers. Only the ground fond
beef scraps arid bran are fed lh< re.
If these simple suggestions nre
carried out, consistent with your
local conditions, the hens wjll do
the rest. A   "■ ■
■ Two dozen eggs evejry day will
be just like finding $.1.20 incharge
inthe nests, according to... prices
for fre«=h eggs in the local   market'.

Continued from page I  :,        i;'.-'      :•
tuberculosis is weU known jfo finr
vest'gators. -The .4i9fc«&evJ aibpv/e.
described is none of rfiosp.
While the .absolute-caiise^is, unknown there Have been discovered
certain inducing causes These are:
(*) Light-.yields.'-'"of. *«ppy7usually
tartJe imit. (b) Heaivv jyood growth
from two toj four oi; five feet in
The light yeilds and heavy
growth are.due to the following
causes:    ■? : ' ;•    i
1. A heavy crop the previous
year. '■■ y
2. Youi.g trees.
3. Heavy winter prunirjg,,	
4. Exec*8 of wa'eri by rainfall,
seepage and irrigation.
5. Clean cultivation;   7 -
6. Nitrogen in the,-.oil in excess
over potash and phbsphoric acid.
7. Unhealthy or winter injured
trees. ' ;   ; '* '■">■■  '"'
Any one. or any combination of
the above conditions may-be sufficient to brir^g on fruit pit.
The remedies are a good heavy
crop of fruit, and a reasonable
growth c onsistent with the age, size
and hea th of the tree.
To secure heavy crops and a
mature prowth the following' are
of importance:
1. R tioal winter pruning replaced by summer pruning if- abspl-
utely n« c -ssary.   ,       ' ■' '      _       ,
2. The maintenance of the proper
moisture supply, less irrigation,
proper drainage.   ' •'
3. Lirss clean cultivation.; Put
the orchard in sod if necessary.
4. Increase the amount ,of ?oil
nitrogen by lessening cultivate n,
by putting the orchard in sod or
planting in!ercrops and where necessary bal. nee the nitrogen supply
by adding potash and phosphoric
.acid. Unhealthy trees should be
given proper conditions as ' above
to regain vigour. Properly cared
for they v ill produce a much higher class of fruit. Badly diseased
trees had better, be removed.
It is the application of the above
remedies under local conditions
which calls forth th'e skill of the
grower. , -..-  :.      .;; '..;.
More rational methods of orchard
cultivatroh. are absolutely,essential
to permanent control of this disease.
Its prevalence this year has aroused much needless apprehens on in
the minds of fruit., growers. The
disease can be avoided alpiost entirely by the proper methods. It is
significant that good intentions,
rather than-wanton" neglect have
brought it.on to a very large degire.
The methods above recommended
skilfully applied will result in much
greater yields of fruit per t,ree and
pter acre; The cost of production
per box will be actually lessened
considerably and the general quality and color of the fruit raised in
equal degree.
In view of the possible injury
. which may be caused our Province
by. needless alarm, it is to be hoped
that fruit growers 'will investigate
the subject rationally, and having
forrged their conclusions work out
the'Xethedy bjesl adapted to'their,
own orchards. Itis encouraging to
note that the ' prevalence of , JRt.uit
Pitih bjie orchiard has no effect
whatever on.the^rchards of the
same district. Contagion and infection are impossible; on this account no governmental or municipal efforts at control are possible
or.jy!eel be undertaken. This does
not absolve any' progressive, fruit
grower from endeavouring to brii g
his neighbour into line with proper
methods so as to eliminate this
trouble and with it water core, winter injury,,,to some extent aphis,
from the dffcrict.     .
I hav« been instructed by the
Deputy Minister of Agriculture tb
prepare for general publication a
Bulletin dealing fully with this nub*
I'ect which will-be issued in time to
>e of service for the coming season.
In the meantime, fruit growers
who have seen special phases of
the subject not previously brought
to our notice, are asked-to. cor res-,
pond with us accordingly. Co-op-*
eration in the matter will do niuch
to.secure a reasonable altitude in
the matter and the adoption of
feasable,methods of\control.

Curious  Duel  Between  a  Pair of Fire
Eating French.r.cn.
In the swasbbuctyii-g days of the
early part ot the nineteenth century
the dueling dero In France was the
Marquis Merle tie Saiute-Marle. whose
affairs of'honor, were almost Incessant.
One of these'.iff, snick to have been so
ridiculous thut It helped to set in mo-,
tion the current «{f. feeling that has
since made dueling:/so'ranch less honorable than it once was.
It ulipears that one day there called
upon the marquis one Pierrot d'lssac,
himself a famous duelist. Now, in
French pierrot means sparrow and
merle means blackbird.
D'lssac struck himself on the chest
with emphatic dignity. "Marquis,"
said he, "I am a Bouapurtlst and you
are a royalist. Moreover. 1 am the
sparrow and you are the blackbird.
It seems to me that there is one bird
of us too many."
"I quite agree with you. monsieur."
politely replied the marquis, "and my
choice is pistols, and, as Is appropriate
for birds of our species, let us fight in'
the trees."
Pierrot d'lssac was agreeable to this
unique suggestion, and as tf It were
uot a sufficiently'rldlciilrfiiR thing that
one man should challenge another because his name was Sparrow and the
othei- Blackbird the,duel was actually
fought from tree/*. The seconds stood
on the ground below
At n given signal tlie pistols were
fired, and there was a rustling among
the leaves of one of the chestnut trees.
Pierrot d'lssac came tumbling to the
ground "like a ripe .•.lostum." as one
of Sainte-Marie's sei-ciuN expressed it.
whereupon Merle de Salute-Maile iu
a facetious mood began to chirp triumphantly in imitation of the song of
the blackbird. D'lssac waited till he
had recovered from liis wound and
then challenged Salute-Marie for the-
chirp. s
This time there was nothing amusing about the encounter It was
fought witb swords, and Sainte-Marie
was badly wounded. The sparrow nad
avenged himself on the blackbird.—

His Newspaper Story of the Last Days
of ths Commune.
One morning after the siege of P:\ris.
when the city wns believed In London
to lie still in the hands of the commune. Sir John l-i.hinson. manager of
the Dally News of London, readied his
office to find the late Archibald Forbes
lying ou the lioor asleep, his head ou a'
postoffice directory, while the printers
were hard at work on his manuscript,
the story of "Paris In names." a most
, vivid description of'tl.p last days of the
"Forlips bad ^telegraphed from Dover
' pronouncing his coining." said Sir John
Robinson, "the printers had l>een waiting,  and   thus   the  country   heard   of
those terrible days for the first time.
"London was alil>"/e with excitement
Bouverle street was luipiissable through
tbe newsboys shrieking for copies, and
In parliament Mr. (.ladstone was questioned that afternoon and could only
say he hoped the story was exaggerated.
'-'When Forbes wakened from his
slumber amid all this turmoil what a
spectacle he wns! His face was black
with powder, his eyes red nnd inflamed, his clothes matted with clay
and dust. He was a dreadful picture.
He bud been compelled to assist the
communists In defending a triangular
spnee-npon which three detachments of
the Versailles troops were firing and
had actually taught the citizens bow to
build a barricade."
By aid pf dummy dispatches addressed to Lord Granville and tbe queen
Forbes escaped from this threatening
triangle and wrote nil tbe way to England, being tbe solitary passenger co

Vedder In tbe Atlantic.
"A person calling on this painter
heard a most Infernal uproar ln bis
studio Things seemed to ba falling
and brass plates flying about, and there
were loud sbonts.
. "The servant came to tbe door ln a
state of great anxiety and told the visitor at once tbat the master could not
be disturbed.
" 'I should think be couldn't be much

A veteran ball player who has batted against nearly all of the noted
pitchers in the iasit twenty years named Amos Rusie as the universal standard of speed in shooting the ball across
the rubber.
"There have been many fast pitchers in baseball, and all of them tn their
time when they cut loose for fair have
baffled the best of bitters witb their
speed, but you will notice that when
fast pitchers are spoken of' the one
remark is always made, 'Has tie the
speed tbat Amos Rusie bad?' And,
I think, It will be that way forever.
As long ns great names are remembered or baseball Is the nation's game
Rusie will remajp the champion speed
merchant, the one pitcher wbo could
send in the ball fuster than any one
else that ever lived. . Wben yon say
'fast as Rusie' you don't mean' it,
either; you only wish to show tbat
your favorite pitcher Is a very speedy
"Words fail really to describe the
speed with which Rusie sent the ball.
He was a man of' great width, great
strength and the ability to put every
ounce of his weight Into the pitch.
Coupled with this he bad a set of dazzling curves which were manufactured
with the same effort required to produce the speed. Some men can throw
a straight ball with great force, but
have to slow up tn order to develop
curves, but Rusie drove In a curved
ball with all of his tremendous power.
"Facing Rusie to a timid man was
like going into battle must be to an
inexperienced soldier. The distance
was shorter then. Rusie had the
whole box. to move around ln Instead-
of being chained to a slab, and he
simply drove the ball at you with the
force of a cannon. I have stood up
to all the great pitchers of nearly
twenty years. I have seen scores of
them come and go, and none of them
inspired tbe terror In n batsman's I
heart that was put tbere by the
mighty Rusie. The ball was like a
white streak tearing past you without
time to balance yourself, figure the
course of the bnll or take aim at It
The fellows with the wide curve might
fool you Into reaching out and missing
them, but you weren't reaching out at
Rusie—yon simply swung nt a white
streak as It hurled past, and If you
took a full arm swing tbe ball was
pone nnd In the catcher's hands before
you liad half finished the swinging,
"The convincing proof of Rusle'e terrible speed wns this: If any other
pitcher hit a man the man swore,
limped a moment and went to flrst
If Rusie hit a man tbe man retired
from the game nnd sometimes went'
to the hospital. To be hit by Rusie
was worse than to hnve an ordinary
man smash you with n rock." — New

An interview with an engineer
given recently in a western paper
to the effect that there is abundant
timber on the line pf the Hudson
Bay Railway is an illustration of
the misapprehension in regard to
this matter that exists in the public
mind. Because there are large
areas of land in the north on which
there is timber of some kind, the
conclusion is reached that it is all
of present value and that the country has an unlimited supply. As a
matter of fact a careful inspection
of the timber along the line of the
Hudson Bay Railway made in the
years 1910 and 1911, by the Forestry Branch of the Department of
the Interior, shows that there is not
enough mature timber'along'the
line of that railway to build the
road. There are no prairie districts
of any extent along the route, there
are trees everywhere, but owi;g to
repeated fires the foreSt is,except
on the merest fraction of the area,
too small for commercial purposes
and unless it can be protected from
fire until it reaches maturity, will
never be of any use to the country.
Explorations in other parts ofthe
northern forested dietricts tell ,the
same tale. Everywhere fire has
worked havoc, and the forest is a
mere wreck of what it might have
been if fires could be prevented.
And unless adequate measures are
taken now to piotect the young «jnd
immature forests which form the
major part of the stand, the. outlook
for the future is hone too good.
If the northern-forests are to continue to be a permanent source of
wealth to the country, it is absolutely necessary that the fire ranging
system should be extended and
that proper methods of management of the forest should be applied, and bublic education to the
value of the forest is even more
In Sweden, which has large extents of northern forest, practically uninhabited, similar to those
in northern Canada, has about eliminated the fire danger in such
districts mainly by educating her
people to the value of the forests.
