FRESH DRIPPING
A little over a year ago the Agassiz
.experimental Farm wns placed in
the limelight owing to the marvellous
world's record made by Agassiz Segts
May Hoho when she produced 30,886
|)onntls of milk nnd 1081,25 pounds
of butler. The Agassiz herd at present numbers 75 hend und some very
excellent animals are to be found
Micro. During the lust few days
three creditable records have been
completed,
Agnsslz Ptefcje Delcol, fiOT'K), in one
year Mi,.".22 pounds of milk us a junior fwo year old.
Agnssi^ Pietje Canary, 70550, produced 1(1,887 pounds of milk und 895
pounds of butter in u year us u three
year old.
Agassiz Pietje Priseillu Dckol Korn-
dyke, -10730, produced 2-i,Mu pounds
of milk us a mature cow,
Thc  official   tests are  to bund  for
only one of these three but the other
two animals tested unofficially 3.5%.
I The two young cows tire each from u
I full   sister   to   the   mature  cow,  all
'belonging to tlie Pietje family which
■ is   one  of   the   best  on   the   Agassiz
I Farm.      These  three  cows were all
bred   there.       At   the   present   time
1 there are seven other cows on Tt. O.
I P.  all  doing good   work.      One  two
[year old junior, Agassiz Fdferlt Dek-
ol,  03272,  which   freshened   last .Sept.
| is  on  unofficial  test  at  the present
I time and is averaging about 2% lbs.
of butter per day.
Tbe herd sires kept are as follows:
Agassiz Champion Ice-Kcho, 54800, n
two year old son of tbe famous
world's champion cow, Agassiz Kegis
May Echo.
This young bull has been used only
on a few of tbe old cows until such
n time ns he proves the kind of a
breeder he is,
Mupleerest Dekol Henry, 248550,
has 2.'! daughters in the herd at tbe
present time. This bull sired both
junior champions at Vancouver in
I0S3, i\\m\ tbe first prize young herd!
first prize calf herd, produce of dam
nnd produce nf dam with a record.
His first daughter to complete a year
in If. O; P. is the first mentioned heifer, Agnssiz  Pietje Deknt.
Sis Cnnur.\\ Pietje, 32054, n ten year
ok! bull bred by J. M. Steeves, who
sold a half interest in him nt one
time for $1,000.- This bull won the
mature chiss at New Westminster in
1010. He is the only son of l.ady
Pietje Canary's Jewel, who as u three
year oh!   ■>•'.   '-ne  time had  the best
 '-rd rf any cow nf any breed in
Canada;   i.e.   24.140   pounds   nf   milk
ami JJT.'l.OH pounds of butter.
fi will be easily seen from the
above records what a splendid herd
exists at Agasalz nn the Dominion
Keeper (mental Farm, of which Mr. W.
W. Hicks is superintendent and has
been for several years. ' Mr. Hicks
'ins certainly shown himself capable
•f great things from tbe way in
which he hns handled this magnificent
herd since coming here. It only
goes to show what can be accomplished  by  proper management.
It hns always been u wonder to
us that the Local Farmers do not
more often visit the Experimental
Farm with a view to availing themselves of the knowledge and experience to be attained therefrom,
The same thing applies to tlie Harrison Hot Springs, people will come
hundreds of miles and spend hundreds of dollars to reap the benefit
nf its wonderful waters, whereas the
local people who could go there in
ii few minutes, seldom taste it, although many of them are suffering
from rheumatism tot which the writer can speak from.«e.vperienee. i
Now tu get buck lo the Experi-'

THE AGASSIZ WOMAN'S
INSTITUTE VIGILANT
Farmers' Institute bus another
name and that is Woman's Institute.
All that tradition has gathered
around the service of late years belongs, perhaps, in a larger sense to
the ladies. It is not, as some may
think, the gathering together nf u
few women to talk and occasionally
meddle a little with other people's
doings, but, instead, as any can rend-
il.v learn, to diligently and in thorough earnest set themselves to serious task, in particular, the interests
of the farmers, and in- general, the
citizens. Education, laws, natural
right, trade, interest in local government—all these nnd every other interest to human and child welfare
are their prerogative. Theirs not. to
claim en* profess but to perform.
Surely a wide field of usefulness
and n long furrow of need, but, fully
equnl with the responsibility, is tlie
earnestness of application and com-
petence shown. We lately sized up
Ihe work of the Agassiz W. I. It
wns not nn idle hour. Matters were
introduced, discussed according to
Hoyle, and, evidently every judicial
care taken. Order und method were
easily thc unwritten motto, nnd results nre assured to this body of faithful womanhood of the entire municipality—for many autos showed that
a number had come from afar, Altruistic service I
We are not here taking occasion to,
treat of the valuable work done in
the past—may do so later—but venture this, that tbe producer, the home,
tlie church, the school, tbe child und
every human welfare interest bus no
truer abettor than the Woman's Institute.
Tbe members showed their thought-
fulness when they unanimously called
their president of many terms to
again direct their energies. Most of
the other officers, too, were honored
by this expression of confidence.
Under Mrs, Fook's presidency, the
heartiest eo-operation of comrade
office bearers, and, with the earnest
support of all members it would appear that 1024 should signify the fullest and best service in tbe history of
the Institute. Simply not selfishness but selflessness, which is almost
a synonym for rigbt-use-ness.

GIFT OF HAMMOND BROS. TO
BE PLACE OF BEAUTY
YTOUK  TO   BE   HAKTKNHI)
It wns in the neighborhood of 10
years ago that Chas. and Wm. Hammond, tin* latter a civil engineer,
both from the Old Land, donated u
tract, since culled a block, of laud
for the city that they foresaw must
arise on the Fraser nol twenty miles
from (Jus Town (now Vancouver) for
purk  purposes.
It is true that later thc following
streets became confines of the hind
parcel, I.e., Lome, Stanton, Waugh
und Wnverly bounding on the east,
west, north and south, but that done,
no other change was made till Messrs.
A. 0. Morrison and S. ,T. Nevett, at
the earnest solicitation of the citizens went before tbe council at its
Inst session and secured u grant for
making the block a park in more than
name. Mr. Morrison was able, for
the short time provisional committee
wns nt work, to report some $150
already assured.
In providing for cur full quota of
funds private donations nnd one or
more good entertainments and dances
were suggested.
Mr. Hope mentioned that Mr. 1"). M.
Hartnel kindly offered lumber for
tho druining and also to shift the
grandstand from the Mclver to this
new park.
The meeting was one of enthusiasm
and determination, all acting as one
person for all counted it for the
"good of tbe town and home."
On motion of Messrs. Dugun nnd
Riddle Mr. J. F. Brown was unanimously elected president; Messrs.
Morrison and Nevett were retained
ns the council committee; Mr. W.
Hope was unanimously chosen as
secretary-treasurer, and the park
committee was made to consist of
the president, secretary and Messrs.
Morrison nnd Nevett.
Mr. Brown was specially thanked
for his thoughtful contribution of
$25 und equally Mr. 1>. M. Hartnel
for his gift, and kindly offices.
The park is assured to the widest
benefit of the entire municipality.
Further donations may be handed
to nny member of tbe committee.
Let's nil do with our might in tiie
way of the helping bund! All together !
Tho Park Committee wish to thank
the (public for the generous manner
in which they are responding to the
appeal for funds to clear the Hammond Park, and herewith submit list
of monies received at time of going

CELEBRATED LECTURER TO
BE HERE
Under thc auspices of the Epworth
League of the Methodist Church the
Ainurlcan-ftuned Miss Frances Nick-
iiwu is to entertain on February 2lsi
(8 p.m.) In the Agricultural Hall
Haney,
That this will bc one of the most
outstanding of notable events goes
without saying.
Miss Nickawn is an Indian of thej
Cree tribe, but more notably, per-;
hups the most unique, clever, talented nnd brilliant entertainer in Canada, tier appearance is superb, her;
expression that of the heart strings!
and her charm and triumph such as!
to  hold  all spell-bound.
Miss Nickawa's attitude and gesture enthralls her hearers ns few!
others can, and easily, to hear her!
is to receive a big part of a liberal!
education.
Not one youth or adult can afford
to miss hearing this celebrity—we
Commend her in the highest terms to
the delightful hearing of all. \
There, of merit, should not in the
large hall be. one vacant  chair.   The)
chance of a life time.
Mr. Lundgren is very busy collecting funds for this year's Agricultural Fair. All the directors say it hi
going to be our real big exposition.
What of the hosptial effort? Is it
not time that we lined up for active
campaigning?

Is the story of most anyone's daughter told in a daring and truthful manner by the pen of a masterly author.
Ho says the modern girl seldom confides In her family. What are her

Tbe fit lis of today are mixing fearlessly In Hfe, doing things that the'r
sisters of past generations would re
shocked nt. The lure nnd fascination
of the big cities to make a big catch
or a fortune. What happens to nearly
all these ambitious c'rlH when they
are up against tlio lumps and knocks
of a hard old world, alone ? Rup<?rl
Hughes pictured vividly in n drama

magnificent cast including Eleanor
Boardman, Frank Mayo, Mao Busch,
Richard Dix. Lew Cody, Barbara la
Mnrr, Eileen Prlngle and William Or-
lomond portray their parts In an excellent manner. Don't fall to see this

visit to ihe west und Is n guest of
his brother, Mr. J, ('. McFurlune,

n stalwart farmer of that grand old

thirty years by the late Chns. Tapper,

horse of Cumberland."
Mr. Mt'Fnrlane distinctly remembers
the great. Conservative election of
1867, when Sir Chas. Tupper wns the
only follower of Sir John A. McDonald, who wns returned (20 Liberals
nnd 1 Conservative). Me remembers
as u boy entering Into the gaieties

offer—and a very cordial welcome.

THE COMING 'HOT SPRINGS
RESORT
The .St. Alice Motel for Ilnrrison
Hot Springs is projected—it is assured. The only tiling now is for business men nntl the public generally
to pet behind and push. The whole
of the southern coast of It. ('. ami
the northern coast of the U, S. must
needs have h holiday resort and a
handy health retreat. Happily for
Agnuali* its great environ is the logical und strategic spot, and, really
lacking in no particular.
The loadstone is discovered and
those who do things are setting their
hands irrertuclbly to assure the perfect working, ns it will, of tlie magnet.
Tourists will be drawn by the thousands from every trail quite along the
path from Mexico and Alaska, nnd
cis-1'aeitie to trans-Atlantic.
Nature's beauty spot, at once endowed and enchanting, is going very
soon oil the geography of world-renowned localities. The Luke, bearing an honored pioneer name; the
mountains, standing sentinel guard
to the lake waters and hardly traversed by a human foot: the wonderful alluvial soil of the Agassiz Valley,
one and all of these have come to
their day of opportunity and all will
begin their play of wonderful development  and  triumph.
Time has come for us to wake up
to a realization of what it all means.
This year—1924—is our hour of opportunity. Let us as business men,
organizations, and citizens fulfil our
functions and—do it now.

which was won by the Odd Fellows,
the score being 31 to 12. Tills
match was not played according to
the rules as tbe game was new to
the majority, the skips followed the
team. The L 0. b. team attributed
their defeat to this procedure as tlie
I. O. 0, l'\ skip upset all the fine
calculations of the regular team, however, the proposed series of games to
be played in the future will determine the most skilful team. The

After the interesting and at times

CITIZENS IN THE  MAKING
It was a Wednesday afternoon late-
ly that a large number of Japanese
women met at the home of Mrs. J.
Abbott and listened to an address by
Aliss Bird of Vancouver, a talented
missionary, who speaks the Japanese
language perfectly. The lesson was
that of tbe Unused Talent.tbe chief
thought impressed being that if we
have a talent of any kind and do not.
use it. then from the standpoint of
service we are little less a failure than
if we put it to a harmful use — in
either case we fail to produce any
good and so make our life not one of
well-doing nor in line for any reward.
It is a matter of admiration the
close and very sympathetic interest,
these people manifest. They are diligent learners, every one of them.
This occasion was that of the usual
monthly meeting when regularly Miss
Bird cornea up to lend a helping hand.
The women belong to the band of n-
dults and youth who nre getting regular training in the Japanese School
room near the Town bine limit", where
Mr. and Mrs. J. Abbott are the teachers and benefactors.
Among those present were Mrs. J.
"W. White, Miss Hampton, Mr. I). Donaldson and Mrs. (Itev.)  \V. ('. Welch.
Nexl address will be given in thc
hall on Thursday. March Oth; Miss
Bffd again the speaker.
SENIOR GUILD IN HAPPY
EVENT
The English Church Senior Guild
held a very successful fiOQ drive on
Wednesday evening last, which was
well attended. Nine tables were
played and every one seemed to enjoy him or herself immensely. Mr.
Hurry Fooks very kindly kept tbe
score as usual and announced that
Mrs. It. Henshaw was again the winner of first prize for ladies and .Mr.
A. Jenkins also added another prize
to his collection. The consolation
was won by Mrs. AY. F. Moore and
Mr. Prank Appel. Everyone enjoyed
the dainty refreshments served and
Mrs. Henshaw having kindly offered
her services as pianist after the cards
dancing was enjoyed.

RADIO FOR THE BEGINNERS
AND HOW TO MAKE
YOUR OWN
SET
(Article 1IT.)
LIGHTNING SWITCH
For the purpose of a small aereal
Ibis switch may be the ordinary
porcelain base, single pole, double-
throw switch. These switches, as
ordinarily available, have a porcelain base, about 1 x 4 ins. The lead-
in wire is collected to this switch at
the middle point or where the pole
is attached. On the top one connect
wire to your set and the lower one
connect to ground. The blade should
be always thrown to the lower clip
when the receiving set is not In use
and to the upper clip when you desire to receive music or signals. This
switch should be placed outside the
house for better protection. An Iron
pipe or rod can be driven 3 to ft ft.
into the ground preferably where the
ground is moist and extending a sufficient distance above the ground to
fasten your ground clump. He sure
to scrape any rust or dirt where your
clamp connects, A porcelain tube
should be placed where the wire from
the upper clip of the switch goes
through the wall to connect to the
receiving set,
0U0UND WHIR
The wire leading from the binding
post of your set through the porcelain tube to the upper clip of the
lightning switch, should be Insulated
and preferably fiexlble wire. A piece
of ordinary lamp drop cord can be
unbraided and will serve also for
connecting your post of the set to a
water pipe or any beating system;
this wil! be your ground wire. If
there are no water pipes or radiators
in the room in which the receiving
set is located the wire should be run
out of doors andi connected to a
special ground below the window if
such be the place. This ground
should not be the,same as that used
for tlie lightning switch. It is essential that fiir tbe. best operation of
the receiving set this ground be of
the very best type. An ordinary
water pipe driven into the ground
about 4 ft. deep will do nicely in most
ground but if the ground it snndy
you can drive the pipe about (1 ft.
deep. Remember that the ground
Is as important as any part of the
set, therefore sec that this is done
with the utmost care. A poor
ground will give poor results.

Make Your Tuner and Detector."

Bail Teams Visit Chiliiwack
The Girls' nnd Boys' Basketball
Teams from the Agassiz PublleSeho.il
visited Chilliwaok on Saturday, and
after two exciting struggles managed
to divide honors evenly, the Agassiz
glrla winning the first game 8-5,
while the . boys lost their game to
Chiliiwack   32-14.
The girls' game wns a keen closely
contested match throughout, first one
team leading, then the other. The Agassiz girls however hftji a distinct,
edge on their opponents in shooting
and handling the ball.
Tho Agassiz boys tound ihpmselvos
hopelessly outclassed by the superior
weight and experience of the ChllHwack aggregation, which, combine:!
with the strangeness of the hall,
proved too great a handicap. However, they put up a game fight, and
made  Chiliiwack wouk  for every  point
In the evening the Agassla Men's
Tenm were 'defeated by the ChllHwack
Tt team by a score of 24-16. The Agassiz teaip, didn't seem able to find
themselves on tho strange floor, their
shooting was erratic and their combination poor. The Chilliwaok team,
however, did not find It very ensv
going, and the game was anybody's
right to  the  final  whistle.
Chlllfwnck are expected hack in the
ne«Tt future, and the Agassiz boys ex-
pent to be nbleto turn the tables on
them on  their home floor.
