People... who have heen connected  with the fruit growing industry have  long realized what its development  meant in a province so well-adapted for  horticulture as British Columbia, remarks the Grand Forks Gazette. Those  who are not connected Witii piaetical  horticulture are now also commencing  to appreciate the ���importanceof; the  part which this industry is destined .to  play in.the.general development ofthe  country. At this date there are probably some eight million of tipple trees  in,bearing in tlie older province of Ontario; The proportion of other fruit  trees'to apples may 1>3 placed at a  quarter, that is to say Hint for every  four apple trees there woukl be planted  one pear, plum or--:cherry. lititish  Columbia has as yet only SOO,000 in  bearing and the great, bulk of these  comparatively young trees.

Ontario, too, is doing what  it can to put .fruit in Manitoba in good  shape.. But British Colunibia, by reason of its contiguity to the Nurlliwest,  and M'roni, the;.''excellence of its horti-  cultural product should certainly be  thc main source of the IVuiL supply to  the grain grower of the we.-t.' In this  connection it may bo well to point cut  the absolute Justification' which exists  for the laws of British Columbia in respect to the importation of foreign fruit,  and the rigid enforcement thereof.  The fruit growing iudustrv is valuable to a country in a variety of ways.  In the first place it is a form of 'intensive' farming which entails the employment of much labor, a good (leal  of it of a skilled character. ..It.forms  =one=.'6f=tlib.=best-ad-v.ei tist>nieiit.H_-of=!i,  country by practically testifying to the  excellence of its climate, and it brings'  a large amount of money from the outside, which is invariably spent in the  country itself by" the producers and  their families. Anything which  would tend to hurt such an industry,  or check its development, must tie regarded as an injury to the whole  country. ,''We arc probably not far  wrong in saying that the existence of  three'fn it pests alone in Ontario, the  cod 1 in moth of theapple, tlie plum cur-  culio, and the San Jose Scale, means a  yearly loss to that province of between  one and two million dollars. So far  ���we are free from them in Uritisli Columbia. In Oregon and Washington.  the case i.s different. Both the dreaded  San Jose Scale and tin; codlin moth  arc scattered over a considerable .portion ofthe neighboring states, and the  government is amply, justified in  adopting and enforcing the severest  measures against shippers from the  other, side who would unhesitatingly  ship into this country fruit! iti lest ei I  "with these" ih'ena'ces to the urchardists  of this province.

Mrs. Ham Though Suffering  Keenly Was Cheerful.  The announcement a few days ago  of the death of Mrs. George H. Ham  will recall to many old-timers in Winnipeg the gentle-voiced lady whose  presence helped to make agreeable the  early days out west. Her hospitable  home made glad many a newcomer,  and shared its full hoard with many a  wandering one. Cheerfulness and  amiability with kindness were her  chief characteristics ; while an accomplished und educated mind made her  a striking personality wherever she  moved. Devoted to home and family,  she was seldom heard of. seldom seen  time and was about to undergo a third  operation���this time an opt ration critical and most painful���the attending  surgeon said:        A1,; '  < " Now, Mr* Harq, if you could stand  this operation \vi.ttjput taking an anaesthetic it would help me greatly,Hjlut  of course it isa painful one.'' It!��a'i  an operation-of the,face and most critical indeed.  She* answered-.:".^'Doctor Jif it will  help you or help me, I will try and  stand it without the ether." This she  did without flinching.  At last she seemed to realize that further hope wasfutile, butatmo time did  she give way to despair. A particularly sad thing in connection with her  last days' illness was the serious illness of'* her husband,  who was operated on for appendicitis and who had to be taken to  the hospital from his home. From the  hospital he was carried home again  two days before her death, for her  calls for him were inore than the doctors could stand. 'She could not" be  told of his critical condition, and could  not understand why he did not, as  usual, go to her bedside to cheer and to  console.

The "Bush Fire Amendment Act,  1902," makes it an offence to set out  between the first day of May and the  first day of October in each year, any  fire for the purpose of clearing land,  unless the owner or occupier of the  land constantly watches over, manages  and cares for such fire, and observes  every reasonable care and precaution  to prevent the fire from spreading.  Many instances have been known of  fires spreading from clearings. The  excuse always given is that the wind  caused the fire to spread in spite of all  exertion to prevent it.  Section G of the "Bush Fire Act"  provides that "every person who shall,  between the first day of May and the  first day of October in any year, make  or start any fire in any woods or forest, or upon any landsadjacent thereto,  for cooking, obtaining warmth, or for  any industrial purpose, shall clear a  sufficient space surrounding the place  than  thirty. ye_M.y.one down   "fe's j ,��� whioll he ,s about t0 hKlit or start  pleasant" path togetaer, were denied '  the last sad farewells, for iu one room '  lay the dying wife, helpless, and in the  room adjoining lay the husband, help.

This section meets the requirements  | of the case, but the provision as to thc  means to be adopted when clearing  land does not. It should be made unlawful (and in this way only can the  destruction of timbei be checked) to  light fires for any other purpose than  thoso mentioned in Section G during  the specified period.- There is no reason why ranchers cannot clear their  land and prepare the timber to be  burned in the month of October.

Death of Edwin H. Brink.  The death  of Edwin H.  Brink, the  actor, has been announced at Ashland,  Wis., at the advanced age of 79 years.  Many   old-timers   from   the  Eastern  Provinces will remember Mr. Brink.  In the early 70's ho played in stock In  the old Academy of Music at Montreal,  and for years toured the Provinces as  leading man   for Harry Lindley and  the late E. A. Macdowell.     In those  days    our    townsman,    Joseph    I).  Downes, took   an active interest   in  theatrical matters, and  has many interesting stories   to tell of   the dead  actor.     Before coming to Canada, Mr.  Brink had an eventful life.     He had  been in the profession for forty years,  and was well acquainted with  Booth,  the assassin of Lincoln.      When the  president   was  shot  on   that   fatefu}  night Mr.  Brink was in the theatre.  In fact he had just come from the buffet into the theatre with Booth ; but,  seeing  some   friends in the parquet,  Brink separated from Booth, who proceeded to the family circle.   Mr. Brink  was afterwards arrested for complicity  in  that event,  but,   after identifying  Booth, was released. He has since been  identified with a number of  theatrical  ventures.'    During late years he had  been taking life easy, living on a large  pension.     He was a congenial fellow,  and was well-preserved  for a man of  his age.      His  tales  of his early life  would    fill   volumes    of    interesting  matter.  NELSON FAIR  Secretary   Annable   Getting  Everything in Shape.  Haultain's Platform.

The different committees ln charge  of the Nelson Fair are putting forth  every effort to make the event a success. Tiie finance committee under  the guidance of Fred Starkey and J. A.

There will be a  considerable amount required to carry  out the plans for the Fair already  agreed upon, but Messrs. Starkey and  Irving are satisfied that they will be  able to accomplish successfully the  t isk they bave set for themselves.  Secretary Annable has the membership tickets ready for disposal, and he ,  is satisfied that the sale will fully come  up to that of last year.  The secretary has almost completed  his programme of attractions, aud he '  is certainly justified in his boast that  they "will be superior In every respect  to anything that has ever been offered  in the Kootenays." Tlie list is headed  by the Kollo troupe, one of the  strongest aggregations on the con tin- '  cnt: then there is the Bickett family,  famous as acrobat- all over the world ;  and besides, Prof. Matheson, the celebrated aeronaut, will make three ascensions, one each day.

Discus.'ing labor matters, Prof.  Goldwin Smith remarks that if lie  "presumed to propose an expedient  it would be tbat when a division i.s  taken on a strike it should always  be by ballot, and each married man  should bave two votes." Refeiring  to the New Zealar.d situation he  says: "Tbe system of industrial arbitration in New Zealand which it  was hoped would put an er.d to  strikes, is now a rronouueed failure. The judges seeing it is a  ���wreck, lefuse to administer it any  more. We must all be sorry to see  the failure of an attempt launched  with high hopes, to put an end to industrial war. Net'on]) an end of  strikes was premised, but a complete system of industrial law. Such,  however, was not the inevitable result. So long as thc market was  rising and the court had only to register the fair demands of the artisan, all went very well. But as  soon as the market turned and contention commenced trouble was sure  to begin. - It is impossible to eti-  iorce an award.

About a hundred years ago various relics were recovered, but since then, no real effort  has fceen'made to solve tlie secret* which  the itea has kept so 'well. The present;  Duke has now taken the matter in hand.  He .has made arrmijren-.euts with a Glasgow _ captain; and a '-well-known diver is  making a preliminary, search. This has  ibeen, so "far, successful.
