At th-o of tho llorticultur- iul Society on Thursday evening. Mr. Charles Kuley. at the request of th? Society, ajrrvod to prepare an article on Sweet so as to give the uuh- lic an idea of the best way to raise thorn. Mr. II- Fuinu'M promised to a prize of live dollars to the bov or girl xuidc-r sixteen making the best showing of sweet peas this year. Mr. Haley's article is given below. THE SWRET PEA The Sweet Pea U-athyrus Qdora- came originally from Sicily and The purple and white from the former nnd the white and pink a painted lady from the latter. The earliest record of this plant is about since that time it made slijrht progress until llx-y Eckford of Shrou- shire. Kngiand. took up the cultiva- tion and breeding of the plant in and to him should be the hon- or of producing the bulk of the manv magnificent varieties we have today. It is a plant that will -grow undsr almost any conditions, hence its great popularity antl no plant will give such a large and lasting display of bloom for as little attention, as this one will. There are three distinct kinds, the tall or climbing, the bush (growing to about 38 inches high) and the Cu- pid, a cfwarf. not more than G inches high. The tali, or climb ing variety, i. n. the ordinary sweet pea. requires a, support of some kind, chicken wire, brush, or .strings. The Cupid, on the other hand, may be planted in anv bed and covers ground with ioliaere and blooms and does exceedingly well in dry and hot climates, and seems to re well adapted to this district, having been very successfully grown in Lethbri-dge. The tall or climbing variety is the best of all the blooms, having long stems, while the Cupids are short. With regard to the growing at" sweet peas, there is no difficulty. Dig a trench along a fence and plant the seed and they will grow. But eroort culttuv also pays, in the increased quantity of bloom. Dig an-d thor- oughly cultivate about a foot deeD, enriching; the soil with %vell rotted manure (if not well rotted use none) filling the trench up within three ches of the surface and plant the seeds rather thicklv about an inch TOORE'S "Barrister" COMES IN 2.'2tf AND IN. 2 FOR 25C.

Ont., April demand that all the great spending depart- ments of the government be subjected to a searching investigation made bv Mr. Boherty of Montreal was the fea- ture-of today's session of the House of Commons. The motion was made when the House was moved into sup- ply and the debate lasted all day, be- ing adjourned at 12.30 this The eivi] service commission had made certain comments on the con- duct of the Marine Department. As a result the government had been compelled to appoint a commissioner to investigate the substance of criticisms. As a. result all that t.he civil- service commission had said had been foun-d to be justified. The Commission had however, op- pressed its regret that the time at, its disposal had not enabled it to deal in the same way with other spending departments, in which it be- lieved similar conditions prevailed. This belief should bo investigated. The Cassels' enquiry has been harn- perod in its limitations and Mr. Do- 'herty did not think it showed an ear -desire on the part of the govern meiit to jjot at the whole truth. ough had been brought out to show the conditions of affairs. Personal- ly he thought Mr. Brodeur's personal integrity was -unquestionable. Ho wanted to know if the government prepared to taUe the stand thiit overythiug was alright in every other department am! that the Marine De- partment the only black sheep. Was it to be supposed that a man vrould bribe a Marine Department of- ficial would stop short of bribing one in the department of public works? Mr. Doherty took up the question of continuing dealings with those firms which have been shown to have been guilty of bribU'-p public officials, j In England such conduct on the part of a firm would forever place it out- side of any further dealings with the government. The government has punished the: oiUcials found guilty of acceptance of bribes, but he wantetl to know what was to be done with those who were' equally guilty in ofTering and payincr bribes. Mr. Doherty concluded by mov inj that a thorough and untrammelled investigation be held into all the great spending departments of the government. Hon. Brodeur thanked Mr. Dohertv for his personal kind allusion to which he was not accustomed from the Opposition side of the House. Since his appointment he has been endeavoring to institute reforms in his department. He had inaugurated a new system and had thrown open the doors of his department to th civil service commission. The s.ys- tern condemned by that commission has been handed -down as a heritage since the days of confederation. Ma- ny able men had preceded him. but they had been unable to get rid of the patronage system. Purchases were now being made bjr public ten- der and tiie patronage systei% had been abolished. Ke challenged anv man to say that he had not done his duty. In conclusion Mr. Brodeur touched upon the motion of Mr. Doherty for an inquiry into all the spending de- partments of the administration. For this, he -declared, there was no jus- tification, as there was- for the in- quiry into his own department. The demand for a general inquiry was not justified. CONNELL-HUNT St. Paul's Church was the scene of a fashionable wedding at 1 o'clock today, the occasion being the mar- riuge of Herbert Council, Civil En- gineer, of Lethbridge, Alberta, to Miss Nellie Hunt of Dr. J. J. Hunt, K. C., of this city. The church was none too large to hold the ga- thering of friends of the contracting parties.

Why Christie's Biscuits are the best pOOD BISCUITS are made by more than one or two manu- facturers, and can be baked from any one of a few excellent brands of flour, but the Christie way is different. The best millers in Canada ship us samplss of their flour twice a year, or oftener. We test the samples, and select the best brands for our purpose. We blend the brands which we have proved keep on blending and testing by actual baking until we get a dough good enough to sustain, or better, the Christie reputation. Every ounce of raw material is carefully analysed before it can pass into the mixing room. The best sugar, pure, fresh creamery butter, new sweet milk and delicious pure ingredi- ents mixed with our blend of flour, in the Christie scientific way, yields that delightful, appetising crisp- ness and delicate flavor which-has made Christie's Biscuits Ctvoredmboveall othertabledainties from ocean to ocean. Yes, Christie's are the best biscuits money can they cost no more than just ordinary biscuits. nirowv A Company, limited, Toroato CARDSTON j .Cardston, April -announced! t through the columns of the Herald, Mr. E: X.
