No trace has as yet been discovered  of the marauders who entered the Nelson School, Grandview, last week.  From the traces which were left behind It is thought that boys were responsible.  germ laden milk. This is a national  loss of vary serious magnitude, aad  one that demands the immediate application of preventive measures.  The greatest danger occurs during  the hot summer montbs. Milk constitutes a most favourable medium  for tbe development of germ life.  Two main points, therefore, require  special attention. (1) Absolute cleanliness should characterise every p*art  of the process of producing and distributing milk. In this way germs  may be largely kept out of the milk.  (2)By holding the milk at low temperature the germ life that does gain  access to It can be kept from developing.  Modified Milk'for Infanta.  The preparation of modified milk  for Infants in cities, is usually not a  good commercial investment, although it has been produced # at a  profit in, some large American cities.  But the saving of child life Is a matter  ���������of vital importance to the municipalities and to the country, and If private  interests will not undertake this -service, ^then the municipal1 authorities  mtt*t|tf they are to escape the lgno-  minojprof posterity.  AwBi������her: of Canadian cities are  already partly supplied either by  private dtisens or by the direction  of the Municipal Boards Of Health.  But there is need for a very much  more general adoption of this principle. The cost need not,be very  heatpr, aa can be seen from the really  excellent milk service provided by the  Board of ��������� Health of tbe city of  Rochester, N. Y. The initial cost  for the eulpment waa only about six  hundred dollars, for a population of  200.000. Dr. Goler, who baa bad  charge ot tbla work., has made hla  city world-famous, oa account of the  results by these mSk depots.  ������������������suits in Rochester. v,  The following statement Illustrating something of wbat has been accomplished by Pr. Goler In Rochester, is taken from Mr. John Spargo's  work, "The Common Sebae of the Milk  Question": The Rochester depots  were first established In 1897.  "During the nine years, 18*8 to  1896. Inclusive, there were 1,9*9  deaths of children under five years of  age In the months of July and August  (In Rochester); but during the period  1897 to 1905, following nine years, distinguished by tbe work of the infanta'  milk depots, tbe number-of deaths in  the same months' waa only J.0QQ. The  number of deaths was lust half, notwithstanding that tbe population bad  Increased something like 20 per cent  I know of nothing to equal this ret  ord in the history of any city in the  world. And the cost of this great  work to tbe city bas been barely a  thousand dollars a year; less than  the salary of a good Inspector."  M0DE8 OF LOCOMOTION.  Mrs. Goodwife-"Hello.! Mr. Beresford.

In 1817. and was propelled by  the rider touching his feet on the  ground. The bicycle beca emknown In  France as early as 1820. It was constructed of two wooden wheels of  nearly equal size. The bicycle was  considered a more appropriate vehicle  for ladles to ride. Tbe crank velocipede first appeared In 1867. The automobile is so hew that children can  remember the date of its first appear*  ance. r  Flying machines have long been  dreamed *i. In 1679 a plan was published for 'making an air ship to be  propelled by oars or sails. It was to  be an air-tight brazen vessel so light  that when the air waa pumped out of  it it would float of Itself. As the designer did not reckon with the pressure of the atmosphere, he never* saw  his machine rise.  The first balloon ascension was  made by Pilatre de Rozier and the  Marquis d'Arlandes, November 21,  1783. In a montgolflere. When mlr  balloons were first heard of, some one  flippantly asked pr. Franklin what  was the use ot It   The philosopher  replied by asking, "What is the use of [the great satisfaction you give.    It pays to deal with you."  a new-born Infant?

Tbe patent  for this car was signed, br President  Andrew -Jackson. Electricity was first  applied as a motive power to street  cars ln Cleveland. Ohio. In 1884.  Water craft gett no mention from  Moses, but Solomon bad a' ueet Boats  are freely mentioned In the' New Testament and sea invasions were made  by tbe Greeks and Romans to Syria.  The boat now known as a schooner  got Its name in 1714. when Capt An-'  drew Robinson, of Gloucester, Mass.,.  built a vessel Vrlth two masts and  sloop sails. At the launching, aa onlooker cried ��������� .out. "Ob. bow she  ���������coons!" Captain Robinson exclaimed. "A schooner let her be!"  Steam was not applied to water  navigation until after'It had been used  ror other purposes. A man named  Symington made a sort of voyage in  a steam vessel on the Forth and Clyde  canal In 178������. Fulton launched bia  steamboat on the Hudson In 1807.

Owing: to the fact that the Province  is rapidly filling up with people from  the Bast and South who have very  little knowledge of the past history  of British Columbia, it is felt tbat the  Caribou Brotherhood is an organisation which fills a crying/need. It is  realised that .as the the discovery of  gold in the Cariboo was tbe cause of  the opening up. not only of British  Columbia, but also of the wonderfully  fertile territories lying to the Bast,  and was also indirectly the cause of  the building of tbe first transcontinental railway, the history of the incidents, tragic, pathetic and comic, attending tbe discovery of gold should  not be lost sight of. and it is one of  the chief aims of the Caribou Broth*  erhood to collect and preserve "in ita  archives, and later to issue In book  form,' the wonderful Story of adventure ln*which the pioneers of the Cariboo' participated.^ " ���������  There will be In each subordinate  =|T      J    J.    ���������'  an: Bublihsed under date of April 14,  IM*.

Tbe Caribou Brotherhood, while It  bears the name of a quadruped Indigenous to British Columbia, Is not  intended to represent an animal, but  the district In which the incidents occurred which'tbe Order designs to  perpetuate and preserve, and the emblem - therefor of tbe order consists  not of an animal's bead, but of the  working tools ot the miner, prospector  and rancher, who ^Inhabit this wonderfully productive district.  Any student of the history of British Columbia recognises the fact that  the principal cities of the province  owe their earlier success to the gold  which' the Cariboo 'miner brought  down and dispensed with a princely  hand. In those early days there were  no authors to chronicle passing events  or to describe/either In prose or verse  the romantic story of the greatest  stampede for gold in the early history  of Canada, and it therefore behooves  country, to do all In our power to preserve the wonderful narrative of the  hardships and perils undergone, and  the successes achieved by tbe pioneers who did so much to open up  this marvellously rich province to the  world.  The Colonist of Victoria, the oldest newspaper in the Province, in  culling from its files of fifty years  ago, gives daily evidence of the marked influence exerted on the growth  and development of the whole province by the discovery of gold in the  1 Cariboo.

Tbe first  WATER-  INVERSION  AT CHICAOO  What Canada and United States May  Plvert from Orest Lakes.  The Sanitary District of Chicago  has been endeavoring to secure permission to divert 10,000 cubic feet  of water per second from Lake Michigan. This water, Instead of going  by way of the St. Lawrence river,  would reach the sea through the val-  lew of the Mississippi. Tbe water  already diverted at Chicago has  caused serious loss to navigation aad  other interests by virtue of the fsct  that the levels of tbe Great lakes  have beeen lowered. There is, how-  ���������ever,, another aspect of the , result  which would follow if Chicago were  granted Its request to take 10,000 c.f.s.  from waters which essentially belong  to boundary waters. Some 160,000  horsepower is imported into the United Statqs from Canada, under the  Burton Act. This is equivalent to  about 12,000 c.f.s. Consequently, Canada would only have . the benefits  from thee 36,000 c.f.s. alloted her under the Boundary Waters Treaty, less  the 12,000, or 24,000 c.f.s.; whereas  the United States would have the  benefits from 20,000 c.f.s under the  Boundary Waters Treaty, the water  equivalent of the imported power, viz.,  12,000 c.f.s. and, If the United States  obtained the additional 10,000 c.f.s.,  this would make about 42,000 c.f.s. as  compared with the 24,000 mentioned  for Canada.

Mrs. M.J Mcdeland will address the  mothers at Lord Selkirk school next  Thursday at 3:30.  Objection is being taken to the use  of aspbaltic mixture in the paving of  Westminster road. It Is not the style'  of paving that the ratepayers of this  district require. Westminster road is  a main thoroughfare between different  municipalities and the city, and aspbaltic mixture la unsulted for the  paving or such a highway. It for also  thought thai tbe city ahould pay a  larger portion of the cost, which Is  1173,913, of which the city proposed  to pay IllMlS. Those who oppose  the style of the Improvements urge  that tha matter ahould be deferred and  a fresh tender called for. aa the present one weald meet with eerioua opposition.  lix  VS..  ��������� my  90'  ik-a -y'  Wrx  jgfii';;.--  ':5p;"v-'i-''  liil  J^fg&gi*-.- '���������������������������  Mi&y ���������":.-:-  ^Myypx  ���������.���������,?<#S:-.:--'������������������"���������,  W'"''  -et^Z'X'*-'  MMxx  ttf^sa������^*^ ^XX':  ,.������.V.j.yl/i������.������.i..;..>iiv.Mi''|>'|''."|'������->'V<"K-OI'llsi������l 111 !"������������������������������< ������'t4l������ ������I 'I >.< S S">^  PHaaai Oayvlaw IW9 ^:^:'-..

B. rRENCH. B.S.A., Assistant Horticulturist.  Cabbage.  There are three groups of cabbage  commonly grown: the Red, White and  Savoy types. Tbe Red Cabbage is  commonly used for pickling. The  White Cabbage is commonly used as a  vegetable, while the Savoy Cabbage,  which is of the best quality. Is little  cultivated because production Is not so  abundant as with the common kinds.  The three types of cabbage as to  shape are the pointed, round and flat.  The pointed are early, tbe round medium, while the flat are late varieties.  Sell and Manure. The best soil for  cabbage Is a rich loam, moist, yet well  drained, and In fine condition. Early  cabbage usually need richer soil than  late cabbage. It hi a good plan to occasionally ehange the, land. Cabbage  are gross feeders and need lots of rich  manure. A small quantity of'hen man*  tire placed around' each plant and  mixed wltb the soil, will give very  -good results, especially with early  ���������cabbage.  Early Cabbage. Seed should be  sown in the greenhouse or hotbed,  about the middle or end of February..  If only a few plants are required tbey  can be grown In shallow boxes In the  house. When the plants are about two  inches blgb. transplant tbem Into flats,  placing the plants one and one-half to  ,taree laches apart, depending whether  they are to be transplanted once or  twice before setting ln the field. The  greund should be plowed in the fall  and well prepared ln the spring, and  ���������the punts should be hardened off before setting them In the open ground.  It la Important that early cabbage  tehould be planted out as early aa poa*  ralMe In tbe spring   and set   deep  -enough to bring the base of the leavea  below the ground.    Cabbage plants  will grow at a low temperature.  They  , near net etaow much Increase' ln th*>  leaf at first, but they form room rap-  leTjr.  The distance apart for planttnr  depends somewhat   on   the variety  jnasra, bat the naval distance Cor ear*  -- 4? -eabbage ������ eighteen laches; apart iftrf  isn te Inches apart. Habere Is very,  Into fraat after planting, the plants  may be covered with earth for two or  three days, but should Immediately be  - uncovered If tite weather toma fine.,  - Cultivation should begin aa aeon as  jpeslble and he continued every week  ' or ten darn, and after every rain un*  , ta the beads are well formed.  -,tne crop should be ready for mar-  k������t from July first on.  If the land ia'  ' at once plowed when the early cabbage Is harvested. It can be used for  some late crop, as beans, spinach, or  celery la some district If tbe market  Is over supplied tbe heada may be retarded by pollmg the plant to one aide  and so breaking off some of tbe roots.  '��������� Mia Cabbage. Tha seed for late  cabbage la sown In a seed bad in the  ������������������en ground. *J9m the seed four to  air weeks before yon want to transplant to tha Held, in a well-prepared  seed bed.  Sow In rows about twelve  vjhjsshee apart* Tha ground should be  well prepared before planting. If ne*  cessary. lata cabbage land may be  need for some early crops, auch aa  . peas, in the spring If horse cultivation Is to be employed, set the plants  pot less than two feet apart in rows  three feet apart. During the fore part  of the season tha cabbage may be cultivated both way*. If tbla Is done  very little band labor Is required.  Harvesting and vtortag Lata Cab*  bag*, bate cabbage may be harvested  and sold at once, or stored for market-  ins daring tbe winter. Tbey are usually marketed with the outside leavea  trimmed off and are shipped In crates,  Cabbages will stand ten degrees or  mora ot frost, bot severe freexlng or  repeated freexlng and thawing is Injurious. They are seldom Injured very  much unless tbe stump Is f roxen solid.  Cabbages are generally stored In  cellars or specially constructed pits In  the field. If stored In tbe cellar tbey  are placed on shaves, and the cellar  should be cool aad moist, but not wet  . The pits are.made by constructing an  A-ahaped wooden structure, which is  Covered over with earth. *This Is  made about eight or nine feet wide  at the bottom and the point about six  feet blgb. A false door Is put In to  keep the'cabbage-oft the earth and to  allow the air to circulate through the  cabbage. While In storage cabbage  Ahould be well ventilated and kept as  cool as possible without freezing.  Soft cabbage may. be stored for the  Winter by setting them in a trench,  roots upward, and covering the years  with about six or eight Inches of soil  aad mulch to prevent hard freezing.  The roots will show above ground.  Soft cabbages stored in this way will  harden up by spring.  Raising Seed. For raising'seed, cabbage are placed together, in a-trench  about eighteen inches deep, head up-  vrards, and covered with soil and  mulch to , prevent .severe freezing.  . Hard  heads give" a good  quality of  .   Heed,  suits can be obtained from a loose, rich  sandy loam or a black much soil. Well  drained swamp bind is often excellent  sol for the commercial growing of eel*  ery. Special attention should be given  to the maintenance of humus in tbe  soil for the commercial growing of eel*  hausts the chemical fertility of tbe  soil, but also Injures Its physical condition. This is not so important' In  the case of swamp lands, where there  is generally an extra large supply of  humus. The maintenance of bumus hi  the soil can be accomplished by tbe  application of large quantities of barn  yard .manure, or by planting the land  every third or fourth year'to some leg*  umlnous crop, such as clover.  Fertilisers. Where fresh manure Is  used, It ahould be plowed under ln the  tall at tha rate ot about twenty tons  to the acre. Well-rotted manure may  be applied as a top dressing a abort  time before planting, and harrowed  into the soil. If the manure Is plowed  under, the land should be replowed  a short time before planting, ln order  to bring the manure near the surface.  Many growers are getting excellent  results from the use of commercial  fertilisers at the rate ot 600 to 700 lbs.  per acre. Tbe best results seem to  be obtained by making a furrow where  the plants are to be set: Then scatter  the fertiliser In the bottom of the furrow and mix it well with tbe soil and  then set the plantron top. Nitrate of  Soda might be applied In light applications during the growing season just  before cultivating. When celery Is  grown on tbe large scale, it is advisable for the grower to experiment  with different mixtures of commercial  fertilisers, and find out' what gives the  best results with' his own particular  soil.  Raising ths Young Plants. Celery  seed loses its vitality very quickly and  Is practically worthless when kept  over until the second year. Order your  seed early, before tbe supply of the  best Is exhausted, and there will be  very little difficulty In getting good  seed. One ounce of seed will give  about KjSOO plants. ��������� Celery seeds are  slow ln germinating, and tiie temperature of the seed bed should be kept  low\ The seeds for the production of  early celery are sown about tbe end  of February or beginning of March, ln  hotbeds or Oats. Where grown In  flats there fs less danger of damping  off if the seeds are covered with aand.  '��������� For bite celery the'seed Is sown In  an old hotbed, cold frame or In a well  but'alt later cultivations should be  prepared seed bed. The seeds should  not be, covered to a greater depth than  one-eighth ot an Inch. Watering  should be attended to very carefully  and the bad should not dry out After  the plants are up care ahould be taken  that the bed does not become too wet  and the plants damp off. A better root  system and a stronger plant can be  obtained when transplanting Into flats  Is practiced,- but this la seldom done  when celery Is grown on a large scale.  The cost of labor ta too great to recommend two handlings for commercial  celery production. Tbe plants abound  be thinned out In tbe seed bed to prevent overcrowding. ,  Transplanting to tha Field, Tha  around ahould be well plowed, harrowed .and smoothed before the planteare  set out The seed bed should be thoroughly soaked with water before the  planta are dec*, A portion of the top  la generally trimmed off the plant  when transplanted. When raised on a  large scale celery Is grown In single  of* double rows, 4, 6 or 8 feet apart  with planta 5 or C Inches apart In tbe  rows. Most of the growers In this  Province prefer the double row system. Early celery is generally planted  closer together than late celery. It  the weather Is warm after setting the  plants In tbe field, they should be  shaded for a few days.  Cultivation. .The young plants  should be frequently cultivated, but at  no time should deep cultivation be  practised, as the roots are to be found  very near the surface of the soil. As  soon as tbe plants attain considerable sice, the leaves should be drawn  up and a little soil compacted about  tbe base of tbe plant to hold It upright.  Blanching. Early celery Is usually  blanched by means of boards, as  there Is less danger of disease during the warm weather. Late celery  may be blanched by tbe use of boards,  or by banking up with earth. There  is much less labor required- when  boards are use? for-blanching, but if  tbe celery is to be left in tbe ground  late in the fall, there is more danger  from frost than when it is well banked with earth.  Digging and Preparing for Market  In the field the celery should be  loosened only as required for removal to the storehouse or washing house,  as a short exposure to the sun after  the roots have been disturbed is very  injurious and detracts from its keeping qualities. When ready for market  the celery is washed free of adhering  soil, th3 outside leaves are removed  and covered. This method is, bow-  ever, too laborious for application on  a large commercial scale.  Celery may be safely stored In cellars or storage houses provided the  temperature Is kept low and plenty  of ventilation maintained.   Make bins  3 or 4 feet wide, 2 feet high and any  desired length and put in about 6  inches of strong soil. Plant the celery, leaving the rata on, close together In rows about 3 lncbea apart.  After the plants are set In water  heavily without putting any pjore than  necessary on tbe tops. Leave the bin  open until the plants are dry, and then  cover. 0  Varieties In Order ef Maturity.  Golden Self Blanching, White Plume  or Chicago Giant, Paris Golden, Giant  Pascal, Evan's Triumph, and Winter  Green.*  Tomatoes as A Field Crop.  Growing ths Plants. Tomato seed  should be sown In hotbeds or flats  about the middle of March.,,, It requires about one os. of seed to produce enough plants for one acre.  When the second leaf shows tbe plants  should be transplanted about i Inches  apart each way, Into fiats, and allowed  to develop in these quarters until they  have attained a height of 4 to 6 Inches.  They are then transplanted to about  4 inches apart each way In flats or  Into berry boxes, pots, etc., and from  these quarters to the field." In growing the young plants It is very important to keep the temperature fairly  even, and, not allow drafts to strike  the plants. The less water used as  long as the plants are growing well  the better. It 1b very important that  the plants should be well hardened  off before set in the open ground.  8oil and Its Preparation. Tomatoes  If given proper treatment can be  grown on almost-' any well drained  soil which is ln good condition, but  probably a rich, sandy loam will give  the best results. The treatment'of  tbe soil previous to planting Is very  Important Tomatoes do well after  clover sod. The ground .should be  plowed tar tbe fall or early spring and  deeply cultivated in tbe spring.  Fertilisers. Barnyard manure may  be applied In the fall and plowed  Under, or If ^well-rotted tt might be  applied as *\ top dressing In tbe spring  and worked Into tbe soil., Since the  tomato belongs to the potash consuming class of plants, the fertlltxers used  should be especially rlcb^ In potash.  Setting and Cultivating tiie Plants.  The planta ahould* be set tn tbe  field as soon as all danger of frost is  over. If tbe plants are transplanted  from flats to tbe field, cut tbe soil In  the flat into cubes two or three" days  before removing tbe planta. Soak  with water two or three hours before  transplanting. If tbe plants are to be  allowed to run over the ground, tbey  should be set about four feet apart  each way. If trimmed and tied to  stakes they may be planted In rows  three feet apart, and eighteen laches  apart In the rows. .  Tomatoes need thorough cultivation-  shallow, as tbe tomato Is a surface  feeder.  Pruning and Training. Tomato  planta under field cultivation are generally allowed'to run over the ground  In any direction. For early market  It will pay not to leave more than  three sets of fruit Even tor the main  crop it will pay to take off all the  small fruit and cut back the young  shoots about the middle ot August  especially tf tha plant la growing  rapidly.  Selection. Tomato seed should be  saved from tbe best tomatoes, from  vines producing a large amount of  fruit The crown setting Is always the  best for seed purposes.  Vsrletis*. A good variety is one  which bears medlum-slsed, smooth  spherical fruits, which ripen evenly  and have small seed cavities and thick  walls. Bote of the common varieties  grown ln Canada are: (Red) Earliana,  Bonny Best, Wealthy, Chalk's Jewel,  Success, Livingstone, Baltimore and  I. X. L.; (Pink)���������June Ping and Globe.  Harvesting and Marketing. The  fruit should be gathered two or three  times a week If the tomato' Is grown  as a truck crop. If used for canning  purposes.tbe harvesting periods need  not be quite so close. For home markets the fruit should be allowed to  ripen upon the plant. If the fruit is  to be shipped long distances It should  be harvested just as the ripening process begins. Only sound fruit should  be ffarketed. In packing tomatoes for  the market tbe fruit should be graded  and those that are symmetrical in  form and uniform in size and of a like  degree of ripeness packed in any one  receptacle.

Tbe doctor's report waa a good one  and soon made. When sober he was  a capable man. and Anstruther's in  Juries, however painful, were sufil-  ctently simple. ;  "A bundle of nerves, fine bred and  blgb strung," was Protberoe'a com-  ntent: "A steer who bad bad tbe same  smash up would bave gone on feeding* Three ribs broken, badly shaken  up. and bruised a; bit, of course; but  tbe ribs bare knit already.

Here, let me loosen tbem a  little," and his deft fingers, which  were as delicate as a woman's and as  strong as a man's, played" about Anstruther with astonishing rapidity.  "That's better, isn't It?"  Anstruther sighed. "Yes. 1 can  move now. I think, without fainting."  "But you must not; at least, not  much. Jim was on the right track,  but he certainly did not give you much  play.   You don't drink much.jdo you?"  "No; not much."  "And you're not twenty-five. Lcrd!  Lord! What could hurt a man who  doesnt drink' and isn't twenty-five?  Your esse was not worth the ride, but  perhaps wis may have others," he added cheerfully, "now tbat obi Khelowna  baa broken out."  As soon as the doctor's inspection  was over, a council of war was held  to the dining-room, whilst Jim and the  doctor cut themselves vast chunks  from the boiled salted beef on the  table.  "Pity that the boys did not over  haul some of tbem," said Jim.  "Yes, It would have saved a hull lot  of trouble." agreed Al, "we could have  given them their medicine right there.  Now we've got to take it to them."  "Yon tblnk that we can't afford to  leave things as they are." asked Rolt.  ' "I   don't  think about it.

Ain't  that so, Jim?"  But Jim was busy eating and listen  Ing. He w&s not much of a gas bag  any way, the men said.  But at last even his appetite  was  appeased,  ar.d   he  turned   from   th  men to the Boss.  "I'm afraid that It has got to be  Rolt.
