change in the educational system
in complimentary terms, and thanked the iieople of the valley for their

long us this confidence was forthcoming tlie Government would reciprocate measure for measure, and
the public would lie well served.
Coming back to education he made

to mnke the very best use of tlieir
time in school, nnd of the advantages offered to equip themselves for
tbe discharge of responsibilities and
duties which with each year in a

of the public and High Schools,
which in B. C. constitute a modern
and practical system, said Sir Richard. The speaker briefly touched

The Undervalued Banan;i
The dictum lh..; frill I should be eaten in tlieir season, liuUs its limitations
as regards variety iu the tomperate

There is, bowever, ouo fruit which is
readily available fresli In American
markets at pruciioally all seasons, although ltf grows best from November
to April in its tropical or semi-tropical home. It is uufortunato that au
article of diet which meets certain uu-
trltlvo requirements so well nud is so
easily obtained at reasonable cost, as
the banana should be tho subject of
much misunderstanding among both
physicians uud laymen, h'or despite
the fact that ovor 40,000,000 bunches
are reported to have been brought to
the United States last year, u Is popularly stated lu many quarters that,
the banana is difficult ot digestion and
may give rise lu alimentary distress,
A closer consideration of the composition of the banana may serve to

This process nm he hastened or delayed within certain limits, according
to the momentary demands of tho retail trade. The color of th-' pool
gives evidence of iho degree of ripeness. The green banana contains In

l-B per cent, of protein and -0 to J.r>

with yellow-brown peel, the edible

Ihe green, one-fifth starch. Most of
the remainder of the edible pulp Is

the limits set above.
Inasmuch as bnnanas are commonly
eaten uncooked, It is obvious that
more or less raw starch 'will be in-

Christianity and Cricket
Cricket la peculiarly a Christian
game. No pagan nation luu; played
it. So a Melbourne paper is rebuking a couple of church clubs for coming to blows al the conclusion of a
mucli. The Haptists started tho
trouble by offensive "barraklng,"
whlcb tho Presbyterians indignantly
resented. Words led to blows, much
to lho surprise of the spectators, who
came to see cricket, not fighting. This
is very sad. We thought football
had a monopoly of thai sort of thing.
Happily the Australian and the South
African teams are not memborB of
the ecclesiastical clubs, so that\there
is no reason io fear that the "triangular tournament" will be marred by
n-itlcuffs.—London Chronicle.

Whooping Cough
Whooping cough, which some
mothers think can be cured by tak-
ine children near gasworks or
thruugh a tunnel. Is the subject of
mure quaint superstitions than almost any other disease. In Northamptonshire it Is believed that if a
small quantity of hair Is cut from the
nape of the sick child, rolled in a
piece cf meat, and given to a dog, the
whooping cough will be transferred to
the animal. In Cornwall the child is
fed witli bread and butter which haa
been passed three times under the
belly of a piebald horse. ln Lancashire they stir, tell you thnt whooping cough will never a'taek a child
that has ridden on a bear!
According to a new Swedish system of making use of peat, the material is powdered finely and blown

the dust is consumed while In suspension The advantages of this
method is that the degree of heat may
be easily and quickly adjusted by
regulating the amount of peat powder
delivered into the Interior of the furnace, This system is said to represent a greater efficiency than heretofore experienced In the utilization
of peat for fuel, three parts of pent

Anaemia Is the medical term for
poor or watery blood, lt may arise
from a variety of causes, such as
lack of exercise, hard study, Improperly ventilated rooms or workshops,
imperfect assimilation of food, etc.
The chief symptoms are extreme pallor of the free, lips and gums; rapid
breathing and palpitation of the heart
after slight exertion; headaches, dizziness, sometimes fainting spells and a
tendency to hysterics, swelling of the
feet and.limbs, a feeling of constant
tiredness and a distaste for food. Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills nre a certain
cure for anaemia, because they make
new, rich blood, which stimulates and
strengthens every organ and every
part of the body. The following Is

serious trouble cured by the use of
Dr. Williams Pink Pills. Miss Georg-

Dear Sir,—As it is apparent to
everyone that there is a considerable amount of Potato Might in the
I/jwcr Frasor Valley this year, an.l
as the disease is so uncommon in
this district, it might lie of interest
to your readers to publish thc following extract from a work by
the celebrated seedsman of England.
"The fungus which attacks the
Potato crops was formerly known
as Feronospera Infestans; now it is
recognized as Phytrphtora Infestans.
Thc mark of its pestilent touch on
the foliage and its destructive effect
on the tubers of Potatoes, are unfortunately too familiar in gardens and on the farms, lu dry
seasons the energies are restricted,
but the scourge is never nlisent,
and during wet summers tbc parasite does its deadly work on such a
vast scale as to create potato
Famine. Moisture is a necessity of
its existence, and in rotting haulm,
decayed tuliers and damp soil the
sport's remain in resting conditions
until they are afforded an opportunity of multiplying witli the
marvellous rapidity that invests the
the disease with its terrible power.
The Phytopthem (fungs) sends
mycelial threads (called Phyphac)
in ull directions through the stib-
ttnnec of the leaf, feeding on the
protoplasm of the cells and destroys
thc Chlorophyll or leaf gum in those
eells. ln a diseased plant these
threads make their way through the
substance of the leaves aipl down the
haulm into the tubers, from which
they consume thc food stored there.
Spraying potato plants twice or
thrice with thc mixture known as
Bordeaux prolongs the growth of
tlie plant until late in tlie season,
and in some instances especially in
certain districts iu the west of Ireland, it lias prov.nl effective in
warding off the attack of thc fungus,
thereby increasing the weight of the
produce. Thc mixture is made in
the proportion of 'itllbs <>f Sulphate
of Copper nnd 10 Mis of lime to
100 gallons ol water. Those who
leave potntt.es in the ground bo-
cnusc the erop is not worth digging
or who bury the diseased haulm
and tuliers iu a shallow trench nre
simply storing Phytophora for another attack in the event of potatoes
Wing planted in the same land
again. Tlie effectual method is t»
destroy all potato..' refuse hy lire.
Extract from The culture of Vegetables and Flowers from Seeds and
Roots by Stiltons and Boris, Heading, Eur."
After reading the extract one is
forced to thu conclusion that the
disease is a matter that should engage thu earnest attention of lhe
authorities as well as the growers
themselves, es|>cciully us the greater
numlier of the latter aru Chinamen.
Tliere is uo doubt that unless
ste|)s ure taken to rid the country
of rotten and diseased potato refuse, next year will see a similiar
condition of affairs, unless the sea
son is unsunlly dry.
As the potato has become   nn
Important staple of produce in this
valley and as the value of land lias
Increased on account of the high
rents paid for good potato land, it
is u matter of great importance
thut cure should lie taken to eradicate
disease and also to preserve the
fair nniue of our valley on the
t-oimt markets.
This is not a matter that can lie
lightly passed over as a thing that
is tin incident of one year, that is
more or less accidental and unlikely
to occur again. The disease will
make its appearance next year if
precautions are not taken to limit
tho chances for 11 repetition of this
year's loss.
Thanking you for your valuable
space, 1 am
Yonrs truly
It. C, Harwell.
There ure many parents throughout the province with whom Ihe
question of an oducation for their
sons and daughters is nn anxious
one. They may bo iu good circumstances i but their pi'e«eiit prosperity
bus been obtained iu many 0IIB0S
through heavy BUOrlflcOB, not the
least of tllCBO being thu absence ot
proper school facilities for Iheir
children. Kven now there are numerous places in Ihe province where
11 really competent school teacher
cannot be induced to stay. The
traveller in lhe interior who lakes
an interest iu sueh matters will bu
often nskeil about tho iKissibility of
Undine; 11 residential school to whieh
buys and girls muy lie scut. Sueh
uu institution may be prepared to
tuke pupils,— those whose education bus been interrupted by circumstances or injured by careless and inaccurate habits of study, lt must
subject them to oversight, not only
during school hours, but also in the
study hours at night; for as a rule
thc chief trouble is tliat their jKiwer
of concentrating their attention on,
tbeir lessons has been impaired, and
the habit of study has to be re-
It is to the honor of the Methodist
Church In llritish Columbia that it
was the lirst to faco this problem.
When Columbian College was lieing
organized in 1892, it was kept clearly iu view. It was seen that this
preliminary work would be greatly
assisted by being carried on in the
same institution, and to some extent
hy the same instructors, thnt served
for secondary and university work.
A boy is not to be taught to respect
knowledge and mnke a determined
effort to acquire it, unless his teachers possess something of the specialist's mastery.
Columbian College possesses many
advantages for its special work. It
occupies one of the finest sites in
New Westminster,-over six acres
being taken up by the institution
and its spacious grounds. It commands a line view over the wide
valley of the Fraser and towards
the eastern mountains. Tlie graceful cone of Mount linker is nowhere
seen W greater advantage than from
the college campus. The entire
panorama is litted to call forth the
envy of nearly any similar institution.
Tlic buildings are modern, spacious, and thoroughly healthy. Each
student is given a separate room,
completely and tastefully furnished
so that nothing but linen hns to be
brought. The rooms are ull steam
heated and electric lighted; und nothing is stinted which will help lo
seeure cheerful and relincd surroundings. The ladies' college has beautifully furnished music and reception
rooms, lt is only literal truth to
state that tliere is nothing bettei to
lie found iu tlie west than the
accomodation at Columbian College.
The gymnasium has the largest lloor
of any in the west. There is n
lady instructor in charge of the
physical culture classes for the girls.
Throe very tine grass tennis courts
and croquet lawn nre maintained
iu iH-rfecl condition; and the
grounds have ample space for fo.it-
liall and the other games whieh call
for ellN.wr.Him.
TllO instructions follow three main
lilies. There is the preparatory
division, where pupils from fourteen upward! are brought up to lhe
standard of high school entrance.
Tlie care whicli is taken with this
department has lieen already des-
crlbcd, Students who have passed
through it are ready to make their
choice between the commercial and
academic departments. The com
mcrclal classes nre under the direct
ion of a teacher who has received
the very highest training in American business schools. The stenographic work is carried on by a competent lady instructor. Tnis de-
partnionl of the college work has
boon popular every since iis establishment.
The collegiate department is
necessarily graded more closely than
the others. The lirst two years nre
in the main identical with the lirst
and second high school years, witli
such modifications as are called for
by the standing of the pupils. The
third year prepares for the Matriculation of Toronto and McGill
Universities. Following these come
the lirst und BOCOnd year of University work proper. As soon as the
provincial university opens, the
second year at Columbian College
will bo dropped,
A complete course in household
science is given in the college, on
the same lines as in all the best
ladies' colleges in the country, The
musical department prepares
students for thc examinations of the
three Toronto bodies which direct
that branch of education.
The social life of the college is of
as much consequence as anything
else in or out of tho curriculum.
It is Impossible for nearly two hundred students to meet in class room,
in playing held day by day aud in
social gatherings withoui great
effects resulting from it. Thc
supervision of this large body of
students is careful and sympathetic;
ami au admirable spirit of attachment to the   Institution  prevails
aiming both past and present
('nestioi,s are sometimes raised us
to the religious affiliations of the
college. Pulling other and higher
considerations out of account, it
would be hnpOBSliblo for a residential college to carry on its work
without some definite churoh connection, lu no other way can it
undertake to be responsible for the
entire life of its students during the
months of absence from home.
Hut the atmosphere is broad and
tolerant; and no parent need have
any fear of his son or daughter feeling isolated in thc surroundings of
Columbian College.
The UMeuNiMe Wealber.
A great many theories have been
advanced tb uccount for the very
unseasonable weather prevalent this
summer. One is tbut the heavy use
of dynamite in blasting along the
lines of railway construction in
Northern British Columbia, is at
tlie bottom of the mischief. Another
and still more reasonable supposition, is that thc recent volcanic disturbances in Alaska are accountable.
It will be remembered that during
tlie construction of the main line of
tlie C. P. lt, across this province,
tlic rainfall was excessive throughout the entire west. The noise
caused hy explosions has been responsible fqr many curious phen-
omenia. During thc Franco-German war in 1870-71, the British
Isles were invaded by swarms of
quail, supposed to have been driven
out of France by the gun fire of tlie
opposing armies. Whether the
wholesale blasting in tbe north will
have a similiar effect on bird and
animal life and drive them southward, remains to be seen, but to a
certain extent this is the expectation
of many.—Ex.

What kind of a
silo will yours
Concrete ?
IF you were to build two silos—one of wood, the other of concrete—side by side, and
then could see them as they will look after live years of service, you wouldn't have
to think twice to decide which is the best material. In a few years more there
wouldn't be much of the original wooden silo led—the repairing you'd have to do would be
as troublesome and cost as much as thc building of an entirely new one. But the passage of
five, ten, fifteen or even twenty years will make no difference to the hard-as-rock wall of the
concrete silo.
WIND, rain, lire and lightning are alike defied by concrete.     You need no insurant'' against it,
destruction, because it cannot be destroyed.   Concrete silus ire best lor another reason.   The
concrete keep, the ensilage at an even temperature, so that it "cure," better, and therefore contain,
more food-value for your stock.
NO matter whither you havt me used concrete or net, you can build a canerett alls. Our book,

To the members of the Cliilliwnck
Hospital — At your Inst annual
meeting thc following gentlemen
were appointed Directors for tlie
current year, viz., Messrs. Douglas,
Duthie, Paisley, Ashwell, Cawley.
At their first meeting held on Oct.
lti, 1911, Itev. It. J. Douglas was
appointed chairman, Mr. Duthie,
Treasurer, and Mr. It. Marshall, at
the request of the board kindly consented to act ns Secretary. The
Board held during the year fourteen
meetings, with an average attendance of six. Your Board began
the year with .the Hospital building
completed or nearly so, nnd took
up the task of furnishing, equip-
ping and operating
as expeditiously as possible. We
regret exceedingly to report tliat
through an unfortunate accident'
and tlie unavoidable delay in securing equipment, we were not able to
open as earlv in the year as at first
planned, but with the kind and
generous help of the Auxiliaries and
friends in thc entire Valley wc were
able to open on February 28th lust,
with a nicely equipped operating
room, nurse's room, superintendent's room, dining room and kitchen, and lveds to accommodate
fourteen patients. Wo considered
ourselves fortunate in securing thc
services of Mrs. Edith M. Johnson
Wemp as superintendent, who during a trying period in the Hospital's
history has been indefatigable in
her efforts to make it a success, nnd
we regret to announce that Mrs.
Wemp acting on her physician's instructions has found it necessary to
resign. Since thc opening on Feb.
28th. thirty-four patients have been
cared for, with a total of 729 hospital days. Outside tlio hospital
your board has applied itself to the
improvement and fencing of the
grounds, thc securing of sidewalks
on Hodgins and Edward streets, for
which we heartily thank the Councils of the City mul Municipality.
During the year thc necessity of increased accommodation for nurses,
private ward cases, and an isolation
ward has developed, and thc need
will havo to lie met if complete success is to lie assured. Your directors recommend that the date of the
annual meeting lie changed to the
first Wednesday following the City
election in January 1914. In conclusion wc beg to thiiiik all members and friends for their kind help
in word and deed and ask for it increasingly for our snot essors, that
nur hospital mii.v la- a haven nf
blessing for all sufferers, llcspcct,
fully submitted, I!. J. Douglas-
I'rcsidcnt, It. Marshall,  Socretary.
The total receipts for tlie year
were $7577.71, and the expenditure
8722X9(1, leaving a balance on band
of 13.W.81, against which there are
accounts amounting to about t\!W.

Tbe first regular meeting of the
Hoard of Trade afler the Summer
season wns held iu the ('ily hall
on Wednesday evening, tho President II. J. Harbor, presiding.
Alamt twenty members were present.
A <iomniunientii.il from Mission
Hoard of Trade re erosion of linnks
of Fraser wns referred to the committee on Navigation.
A resolution wns presented for
endorsement from the Westminster
Hoard in the matter of asking the
Dominion Government to throw
open for settlement throughout the
valley tbe idle lands now held by
timber and other leases and that
aid be given settlers as to clearing
anil improvements. The resolution
was endorsed.
The Canadian Highway Association asked the Hoard to appoint n
delegate to the convention of the Association to lie helil at Winnipeg
during October. Left with the Council to arrange,
.1. K. McLeod manager of the
Chilliwack Creamery in a letter
suggested that the Board endeavor
Insecure Ihe Annual Dairymen's
Convention for Cliilliwnck nnd
pointed out the advantages to
local dairy interests whicli would
result from such an event. The
Secretary was requested lo write
the secretary of the Association to
ascertain whether this could lie
done or not.
A letter from Medicine Hat
Board gave the address of  a  picket
mnking concern in Minnesota lhat
was anxious to establish a factory
on this side of the line. The
Secretary was requested to corres
pond setting forth the advantages
of Chilliwack for an industry of
this character.

linii anil arrange for entertainment.

ixistul authorities as the reason for
the non-appearance of mail car on
B.C. E. It.
J.T. Mayiiard addressed the Board
slating tbe case and benefit of the
Chilliwack exhibit at the Vancouver
Pair. The exhibit was a very
creditable advertising value to tin'
valley.    The amount donated  by
tlio Vancouver Fnir Hoard, $'iri0, j
luul defrayed the expense. Mr.
Maynanl urged that a similar ex-1
biliit be arranged for the West-1
minister Pair, and nsked tlie co- j
operation of the Board. The Hoard
was strongly in favor of tbo scheme!
and endorsed the idea that the City
and rural councils bear the cost of
a gnnd exhibit. The promoters are]
assured of $100 to be given by the|
Westminster people.
Win. Hood, u Muskokii guide,
now residing at Rosedale, askod
the Hoard to request the Provincial
Government to make a grant of
$150 to improve thc trail to tlio top
of Mt. Cheat)!, whicli would be-
como a very popular climb for
tourists with this improvement.
To the finance committee was
left the problem of displacing the

Every day it Is beqoming more ami
more evident that the most ruinous
results, to the farmers of the Wont
would follow thu establishment of
sample markets for grain at Winnipeg
-und  I'on  William.
As . flLrlUlng Instance of the harm
that would follow such a move, was
hrougnt uut at an Investigation of,the
traffic congestion on the Cauadlau
railways before the Railway Commission at Ottawa. In giving their testimony J. W. Leonard of the C.P.R,
uml VV, H. J3lggar of the Grand Trunk
Pacific stated that tliu congestion wns
very largely owing to iheir inability
to secure rolling stock from thu manufacturers as fast as it was required.
All thJ car shops are behind hand
■with sliders lu fact It is Impossible
Cor the cur shops to turn out roiling
_'.oclt as rapidly as the development
oi the country requires It. In this
connection It was stated that the director? of one company had authorized the expenditure of $10,000,000 In
rolling slock, but could get no tirm lo
fill lhe orders.
ll will bo seen by Ibese -ttatoments
-which wen uiieouliadle'ei., dial Ihe
-congestion or traffic and car shortages
on the railways of the went aro owing
to the exceedingly rapid development
of the couutry rather than to the no

tradio? Tho grain congestion of lust
fall was bad enough but with lhe In-
orensod acreage under cultivation
■snob year the conditions will grow
worse uh time pnsNi'H, unless radical
measures are luken to prevent it.
With these fuels In view, whut eun
be said of tbe criminal folly tif ._
labllshlng u sample market (bat will
411 oue stroke take awuy twonty-flvo
per cent of (be ears now available
lor the grain carrying trade. , Hefore
many yeurs pass the grain crop of
the west wil! be over five hundred million bushels. And when tbat tlmo
comes, even providing (hat the sample market Is a ouullfied success,
■wblcb Is Impossible, the twenty-five
per cent lot's of cars will still be us
great 'n proportion as It would bo if
the sample market were established
today. Any intelligent farmer ean
ilgure out for himself what the loss
would be to him. were the sample
marke*. established and the cars de-
•talnnl at Winnipeg as they would be
■for from twenty-four to forty-eight
hours on every trip, and how much
wheat would he left In his granary
that would otherwise be shipped, sold
and paid for. Remember that it
would mean, under ordinary condition's, that one bushel out of every
four ls left on his hands at the close
o; navigation.
And why. In the name of ordinary
-common sense should the farmer he
put to this loss and Inconvenience?
There Is no reason whatever for he
stands to lose at every turn. The
only persons wbo could possibly he
"benefited are the men who would
handle the wheat on the sample market, and would mix It and fix it so as
to bring the most profit to themselves.
It Is to the Interests of every farm*
fr to carefully study this sample
market question tn all Its bearings.
At present, the farmer Is safeguarded
on every hand by statutory laws
which are fairly well observed, and
the farmer now has full control of
his own wheat on the market. If
he don't like to Bell to the local dealer
for any reason, either on account of
grade or price, he can ship himself.
The railway companies aro compelled
by law to furnish him a car In his
turn ;nd placo lt at a loading platform for him. At Winnipeg an honest gra Ie ts assured htm by a government Inspector and the wheat Is sold
at a fair market price. In short, he
is mas'er of the situation.
Under the system of a sample market tlio opposite is (liu case. Tho
farmer i;-, muster of nothing. His
wheat goes tn Winnipeg, a sample Is
placed on the table In the grain exchange and tt Is sold for whatever the
buyer chooses to give him. AH the
guaran'ees o!" fair play which ho now
enjoys . ro sacrificed, und his grain is
placed at the disposal of a crowd of
Spectators, whu agree amongst themselves not to bid one against another,
but to play into each others hands
for their mutual benefit.
An attempt is heing made to mis-
1 ad Iho farmers on this matter, and
false Ideas and spurious arguments
are being used to trap the unwary. It
ls the old game of the spider and lhe
fly. They make the statement tlmt
wheat which is between grades will
bring a better price on a sample
market for purposes of mixing with
lower qualities. This is a fallacious
argument. The farmer knows by
past experience (hut the only people
to profit by the mixing of grain ure
Ihe dealers. In this regard a recent
Interview with Mr. .1. II. Ilaslam who
Is well known throughout the west is
worthy of careful consideration, Mr.
Itaslam win has just returned from
Europe states that the western Canadian when* is losing its pro-em I nenoe
on the British market, und he warns
the farmers of lho west that Ihey
musl , ee lo It thnl they send Ihelr

In the lighl  of this,  whal  heroines of

Some Fly Two Miles High, Faster
Than an Express Train
The problem of how sninll birds
were able to manage long (lights from
ether countries exercised tho in.nils
of naturalists for centuries I'he Mrs:
man to collect accurate tnfotinntlon
on the subject was the lata lien-
Ontke. Living on the little Island or
Heligoland, ln the direct rout] of mi-
i-ration, a.vd entirely devoted to his
Mil-Ject. he was nl.e to verify tor himself many facts which had until thou
escaped notice.
For Instance, he pointed out that
birds on migration often flew very-
high—probably as much as 12.000
feet (over two miles) above the
ground. That they do fly at a great
height has been corroboroted by astronomers, who have seen birds flying
across the face of the moon at a
height of not less than one mile.
Galke's Ideas on speed were probably exaggerated, but only by a theory
of a tremendously swift flight at a
high altitude could he account for
the fact that cerlaln birds were never
or rarely seen iu the countries between Iheir Winter and Summer
quarters. For Instance, he pointed
out that the blue throat, which winters In Africa and breeds In Scandinavia, Is but rarely met with in any
nf the countries on the line of route—
Italy. Greece and Southern Germany.
When they arrived In Heligoland
they came lu large flocks, and were
tired and exhausted; also they always
arrived at the same hour—somewhat
late in the morning. Ho thought lt
probable that they left Africa at dusk
the previous evening, and by flying at
the rato of 180 miles an hour would
be able to reach Heligoland In the oue
lietween 1880 aud 1887 the British
Association granted some money to a
special committee for tho study of
migration, and by means of schedules
much Information was collected about
the birds Ibut ure killed annually at
coast lights. Although many tacts
were thus obtained the observations In
this respect are almost entirely dependent on weather conditions. In
fact It may be said that tho only
niigrallon that can be actually seen Is
that whloh has partially failed, for It
Is only when delayed or held back by

Shearing Sheep With a Machine
Shearing sheep with a machine Is
practical for most farmers, says the
S rathe a Agriculturist. As with any
other machine, a man should have
some knack with machinery to do the
best work. The greatest advantage
ln using this method of shearing is
t' at y~-.i get practically all the wool.
During the World's Fair at St. Louis
they bad a contest between the old-
iasliioi ed method of shearing by hand
aid t! e newer one of clipping the
sheep wilh the machine. After the
expert hand shearer had finished a
sheep the machine would clip about
thirteen ounces of wool. So the saving of wool would soon pay for the
shearing machine.
A man with from 25 to 100 head of
sheep should use the hand machine,
but with larger flocks the power machine is more practical. It one's
neighbor raise sheep, they can
Install a power plant with a line shaft
to run us many machines as they
wish with a small gas engine. When
shearing time comes they can set a
day, collect their flocks and help
each other. 1 have such a plant ln
my barn with three machines run
from a line shaf*. with a loose pulley,
so eacli machine can be operated or
stopped Independently, as the shearer wishes, by shifting the belt from
the tight to the loose pully. We shear
with this plant, running three mas-
chines, about 200 sheep In a day
wllh the average   farm   hands.     A
Bicycles In War
A correspondent, interested In the
hitherto neglected branch of the service, will be gratified to learn that
thc authorities are beginning to take
serious notice of the possibilities involved In the use of the cycle in war.

of defence at home, ln proof of which
It is only necessary to refer to the
Increase in the number of purely cy-
tie battalions maintained ln the Territorial Force. But above and beyond that ls the Information contained ln the new 'War Establishments."
which shows an Increase ln the number of bicycyes tn the regular Army,
and a greater recognition ot the mo-
tor cycle. A cavalry division has
now 18 motor cycles and 371 ordinary bicycles, as against 118 of the
latter hitherto. All this ls very encouraging to those enthusiasts who
have hitherto met with a somewhat
cold reception from the Authorities
in the advocacy of the cycle. But
we regret there is no sign of any cyclists units ln the 'tegular Army so

Regarding fruit on an overhanging tree, a recent enquiry brings in

"Owner of tree has right to the
fruit that hangs over neighbor's

property to pick it up. But the
neighbor also may exercise the
right to cut i ill I i in I is that overhang
his property or roots that come into
it. But he must demand their
removal before doing so. Better

Advertisim As A Guarantee.
When a business concern invests
a lurge sum of money in a handsome
store anil equipment for retail
merchandising, the public feels a
certain degree of oonliiienee that thc
concern Ini-gnmls worth examining.
Peoplo argue that unless they hail
established a reputation fur fair
dealing ami unless they had goods
thai Ihey knew IiIh.I a need, thev
would not dull- spend so much
money. Advertising, likewise, nets
as a guarantee of substantial business
character.    When  a   linn    spends
money frcly on this necessary form
of saleniiinship, lhe public concludes
that it must have goods hack of it
that hnve demonstrated their worth,
or the linn would not huve set apart
this sum of money for selling them
through the newspapers. A concern
that does not advertise impresses
public us merely an experiment.
The fact that it may have been iu
existence for many years does not
help it very much. The public nmy
even look at mere existence for a
long term of years as a disqualification, indicating preference for old
time methods, It takes advertising
to prove that you have confidence
in your goods.
