Cuse Haters is Trouble.
An Indian was assessed ->_5 and
costs or thirty days in goal, this
week, for having three grouse in his
possession before the opening of the
season. The offender elected to
take government board for the thirty
days, A white man paid 820 and
costs for shouting a bun pheasant,
wliieli is contrary lo law. The
hunter in this ease claimed lhat ho
wus n now-cornier and nut familiar
with the game law, anil un this no-
count he met with more lenient
treatment than would otherwise
have been the case. Both oases came
before Slipomlury Magistrate Polly.
Tlie loeal (initio Association is .determined bi cntoree Ilu* game laws
as applying tn the ('hilliwaek
district. Hunters will be wise iu
familiarizing themselves with the

T. W. Wilby, iu his Reo motor
car, with his driver, P. V. Haney,
und Mr, Wise, a mechnnician,
arrived ut Chilliwack Sunday evening atrfi.45, on his coast to coast
trip in the interests of the Canadian
Highway Association. The purty
wns met at Rosedale by President
H.J. Bnrbcr.of the Cliilliwnck Board
of Trade and A. S. Watson, with
their cars and they preveeded the
uutoists to t..wn, where a stop wus
made for the night at the Empress.
During the evening Herbert Gil-
ley and E. Eastman of New Westminster arrived here and the next
day piloted the party to the lloyal
City. The start was made at 11.15
after tho local camera men bud
"shot" the travellers, und several
local cars accompanied the party
ns far as Sardis. The party looked
none the worse for their long, and
at some points, difficult journey of
ueurly '1000 miles across Canada.
Mr. Wilby gave thc Free Press man
a very interesting interview. He
is an old newspaper man and has
lieen eorres|Hindeiit In the largest of
the world's dailies from many portions of the continent. Last year
nccompunied bv his wife he crossed
the United Slates twice, a distance
of 9000 miles by auto. The story
of the trip across the continent by
the pnthlliiding car is replete with
interest. The tour was curried out
under the auspices of the Cuuadiau
Highway Association with the cooperation of the Automobile Club of
Canada at Montreal, and the Ontario Motor Is'iigm* of Toronto.
The party left Halifax on August
27 with S. V. Haney in the driver's
seat, und during the long trip across
the continent the car was laid up tor
eight dnys only. Short stages of
the journey wen. made by bout nnd
trnln through New Ontario, and a
shirt portion enst of Hope, 11. C.
Mr. Wilby suited thnt he hud every
courtesy from the towns and cilios
through which he passed and whilo
thore had been difficulties and hardships thore had also la-en u great
deal of pleasure and  satisfaction.

Mr, Ellison gives his support to
thc view thnt some arrangement
ought to be made whereby British
Columbia farmors may obtain money
ut moderate interests for improvements of their property and the extension of their operntinns. The
experience of other countries shows
that such a government arrangement is practicable. There is no
better security for money than a
good farm in the hands of a competent farmer. Yet the man on
the land finds himself shut out from
sources of supply that aro open to
men in nearly all other vocations.
The bunks look for fluid investments.
They wish to be able to call in their
loans at short notice, and do not
lend on real estate. LoanB tliat
have to be settled or renewed every
few weeks do not suit the farmer,
whose income arrives once a year,
and who mav have many yenrs to
wuit for the lirst return from his
own investment. While the trader
gets back his investment from day
lo day,und the manufacturers seldom
waits u yenr for his return, the farmer may be waiting six years for
his trees to grow, two or three years
for his horses or cuttle to lie ready
for murket, und one yenr for his
ordinary crop. Tho pioneer must
spend money in building a house,
und in clearing land before he lie-
gins to make his nnnunl crop investments. Unless this province is
to lie settled by opulent farmers,
who bring with them money enough
to establish themselves, or by men
who arc content to live in extreme
privation, and to spend a lifetime
in making n modest farm, it will be
necessary, in order to hasten settlement, to establish some public system by which new settlers, and even
farmers already on the land, may
receive advances. It will also be
necessary, as Mr. Ellison points out,
to organize public systems of irrigation. In places where heavy clearing or expensive drainage is required some steps will need to he taken
to mnke the Innd ready for settlers
In-fore emigrant farmers can Iw expected to occupy the lund.

A TRIPLE SHOOTING
William Jasper and his wife, both
Indians, and "Scotty" McNeill, a
white man, arc dead, and William
McLaughlin a white man and the
alleged murderer nf the trio, himself wounded, is at large in the
woods armed witli.a rifle with which
he is alleged to have committed llie
murders at I o'olook Sunday afternoon at N'iconiou, iu the Fraser
Valley, fifteen miles east of Missinn.
The first Intimation of the tragedy
was given about dark Sunday night
when Mrs. McLaughlin, wife nf the
alleged murderer ami daughter of
the Jaspers, drove into Deroche on
a wagon heating Hie dead bodies of
Jasper and his wife and McNeill.
Tho girl told a graphic story of the
quartette having been ambushed on
the mail by McLaughlin, who is
said to have started shooting without parly. After the shooting McLaughlin disappeared into the
wi mils and must have made directly for his home on Nieomen Island,
because a search of his shack, revealed the truces of a hurried visit.
The man is known to have had a
quantity of ammunition in his
house, and this has all disappeared.
Well armed, and with plenty of
ammunition, it is believed the man
has gone into the woods with his
mind made up nut to he taken alive.
The motive for the terrible crime
seems to have been jealousy. McLaughlin was suspicious of the relations between his wife an.l McNeill and it is stated that on one
occasion he threatened (hat tlie next
time he found them together be
would shoot.
The three survivors in the rig ail
stick tn tlie same story. They state
tliat they were driving along when
thev came to McLaughlin who wan
sitting on a log on the ■__ ot th»
road with a ride across his knees.
They say that as soon aa MeN'eilsaw
McLaughlin he pulled out a, revolver ami pulled the trigger. They .lo
not seem to be quite certain whether
or not McNeil's tint shot missed' fire
or not, but they agree that as soon as
McLaughlin saw the revolver he let
loose wilh his rifle, killing the nlil
lady lirst, Bill Jasper second anil
McNeil last.
While he was disposing of the first
two McNeil got his revolver into action and tliere seems to be no doubt
that he succeeded in shooting Ms*-
Latighlin in his breast. The survivors all agree tbat when the fusiiade
was all over the man McLaughlin
commanded his wife to get out of
the rig and tuld the others to drive
on.
According to his wife's story he
compelled her to dress his wound
and even forced her to attempt to
extricate a bullet which was near
the skin on the left si.le, having
pierced thc fleshy part of the breast.
She claims that she was unsuccessful in trying to get the bullet out,
the wound starting to bleed so badly that she had to desist.
Mrs. McLaughlin was with her
husband from I o'clock, about tbe
lime the shunting occuretl until (>
n'olock, when he told her to go
home, and he started into the woods.
The woman was found on the way
to her Inline. The man made no
effort to harm her.
That was the la«t'that has heen
seen of Mclaughlin. The woods
around Xicomcn are thick and the
force at tho disposal of the provincial
police is very small. Although the
settlers in the vicinity arc quite
ready to lend tlieir assistance
they are not taking any great
chances.
The McLaughlin family have not
been fortunate during the last few
years and McNeil's character is not
spoken nf in the highest terms.
About two years ago McLaughlin
spent some time in the local jail in
Now Westminster as (lie result of a
stubbing affray at Harrison. At that
time Constable Lister of Mission arrested him and McLaughlin after
trying to stab Ihe policeman, threatened lo get him some day.
About three years ago Mrs. McLaughlin lived in New Westminster
with lier mother in a little house
lii-liiiul thc Salvation Army on
eighth street. One night a man
named Smith with whom her mother
had been friendly shut Mrs. Daniels
dead and then  committed suicide.
McNeil not more than a week
ago was arrested by thcC.P.R. constable in Mission for being in a
state of Intoxication,

SHORTAGE   OF   BEEF
Department of Agriculture Advise
Farmers to Increase Their Stock
Saskatchewan will have a heavy
crop of coarse grains and roughage
this fall, says a press bulletin issued
by the Department of Agriculture at
Reglna, Bask, What are we going to
do with It? The. gn-atetit authorities in tho livestock world today agree
that the beef shortage is serious.
This shortage Is Increasing, not only
lu Canada, but. throughout the whole
continent of North America. Tho
average price of beef cattle at Winnipeg for the year ending August 1st,
lias heen over 5 1-4 cents per pound.
What better indication have we of a
steady future demand. No elaborate
Btabllng is needed for the work. Cattle
will tlir Ive in straw covered sheds,
will clean up the stubble, will utilize
roughage and convert it into a profitable pnduct. Stock cattle are
scarce and will be scarcer after November 1st Keep your calves and
young stnek, especially females, for
you cannot replace them. Puy a
few feeders for this wintor. Where
possible select big. smooth growthy
animals with large heart girth and
heavy hind quarters, and do it now.

Cause and Effect
Travelling in the wild and wolly.
West, a gentleman entered a small
township In order that he might make
the purchase of a watch and chain.
The  shopkeeper was very  pleased
to oblige, but as he wrapped up thej,<
articles  purchased  he  included   with
them a fearsome-looking revolver of
very respectable dimensions.
I say, observed the astonished traveller, what are you doing? I didn't
offer to buy a revolver.
The watchmaker, puzzled In    turn. ft
and thinking his customer must have
lost his sense and reason, replied:
But you have bought a gold watch.
If you aro going to keep it In these
parts, you'll wait, the gun. too!

TRAVELING SUIT FOR THE
THERE are two atylea predicted
for fall, a revival of the dlrec-
tolre types and the pannier
modes — not, however, the
pannier of olden times, bul the new
pannier of 1912. which is a strange
rendering of the original idea. In many
Instances it looks only like an over-
skirt that la turned over and fastened
down around the hem—an inverted
tag, as It hus been called.
Women have been so devoted to the
long, slim line that, as a mile, they do
not   welcome -with   any  degree  of  en-
thualasm the Idea of being made to
iuuK like bolsters with strings around
the middle which undoubtedly ta the
silhouette presented by the ultra pannier skirt of today

When ahe is nsked where she would

PARING  VEGETABLES
T F vegetables not quite fresh are
brought Into the kitchen tliere is
no hope of ever restoring them to first
class condition. Even good vegetables
wtll not be at their very beei it not
properly cared for after they have been
received.
Most housewives think that washing
vegetables with wuter is the last word
In carefulnesa So It la if the water le
above suspicion, but when water la not
considered safe for drinking It ahould
be bulled aa well for washing vegetables as It ahould be tor family consumption
As to the best way of waahlng vegetables, a few cautions will not come
amiss. Some people never eat asparagus at table unless It has been prepared by some one who ts careful, as
they do not enjoy biting on sand Ttie
cleaning of this vegetable requlree
conscience as well as time.
The bunch should be placed, bends
down, in water for some hours and
should be shaken back and forth to
dislodge the panicles of earth
Spinach Is another vegetable which
requires the vory hest attention in the
cleaning line to free It from grit. After the routs have bepn cut off It should
he washed In a number of waters und
lifted uut of the pan each time In loose
handfula heforo the wuter bus been
drained off
Celery and lettuce snd olher salad
plants, eaten raw, must be washed
With especial care. Tliey should ba
searched with particular tare, leaf by
leaf, Inr tnsects, washed In several wn
tors and then wiped dry with a clean
cloth and put, in a void plnce to become
Orlop Otherwise these vegetables are
uot worlli eating.

CO-OPERATION IN FRUIT RAISING.
Willi lho return of tho harvesting Benson lur Iln' larger fruits,
many complaints aro hoard from
growers In regard lo lho dlsoropanuy
between lho prioo obtainable by tin*
grower and tlmt at whloh their produco finally roadies tin* consumer.
This province is imt singular in
this i'fs|H'i't.. Similar complaints
havo beon rife among all producers
since lime Inimomoi'lal,and perhaps,
especially among agricultural producers, sine*, ibey in lhooldor countries have always ben the last to
combine, nnd ibus ovorcomo tlio
dlllicultlos of gottlng tbi'ir produco
in marital, without dropping much
of iis pnilit nn tlu' way.
Tin' sympathy of ovoryono must
gu out t.i tin' farmer whu, after his
year's hard work, seos, ns ho thinks,
tin* middleman reaping a large portion t.f the profits which ho considers should havo unne into his own
pocket. It is, too, porhaps especially difficult for the farmer to become ll"' blll'il-heillleil dealer who
can huld his own in llie keen competition of the markets of tho cities.
He sponds bis days in localities
where he bus not the sume opportunities of sharpening his Wl'.S llllll
gainingtho latest information whicli
lho dweller in the city bus. Sn
far, us bus been seen, he deserves
sympathy.
llul hear tho other side of the
cuse from tjie wholesale buyers in
the cities. They eun tell nf the
expense of collecting small lots
from many widely separated points,
of the difficulties of obtaining evenness of quality nnd packing, und
being able It. rely on the grower to
supply regular quantities with punctuality und, when necessary, dis-
patch. Their contracts, if their
businesses nre to show a profit, must
be nn a lurge scale, nud this buying
nf smnll lots here uml there is not
worth their while.
Il is here that the middleman
ste|is in; to him tho wholesaler states
the amount of fruit wanted periodically on such und such dates, the
prices he is willing to puy for it,
and when u rush comes it is on the
middleman he enn depend tu enable him lo meet the requirement
of the market with fruit of the required quality and grade. Naturally lie prefers tt. deal with the
middleman, whom be enn depeml
on tn "deliver the goods." It is
ull natural enough, and points
clearly to the line of proccedure
which alono cnu lift tbe farmer
uver the obstacles which nt present
divert sn much nf bis profits into
other peoples' pockets.
The farmer individually cannot
become his own middleman, but
the farmers collectively enn. He
mny not hnve the time nr ability to
mnke himself into u first-class man
of business in the selling line, but
by co-operation witli his brother
fnrmers he can afford to buy the
services of the middleman, nnd
use him us his employee, instead of
allowing him to be muster of the
situation.
It is ono of the grotttest advantages of this western country that
the ruts nf tradition ure not deep;
men's minds are mute ii|h*ii tn the
reception of new ideas, as is shown
by tlieir readiness to adopt co-operation—up to a point. It is fur the
fruit growers uf lhe island und lhe
province tu carry tbe principal
further if  tbey nre   tn successfully
compete with tlie Americans s.f the
fuur slnles tu the southward in the
markets opon to them both.
.Mr. W. K. Seott, when speaking
nt Vancouver lust week on the
future of tho fruit Industry "f the
provinco, stated that where the
advantage In*, with the Americans
ill llie fruit markets, was in Iheir
methods of selling,   The four stales
uf Oregon, Washington, Montana
und Idaho hnve practically what
iiniounts to a single selling ngeney
for lho whole four, and iu lliis way!
Ibey prevent dlfforont districts Infilling againsl eucli othor nnil reduc* i
ing llie price. The onoi'lllOUS uil-
vanlage lliis gives them when competing willi British Columbia, where
ibo different associations Imve tint,
Iciil'lied lu ucl   together,   is easily
SI'I'll.
Mr. Scull also Bounded a mite uf
Minting as lo future prices which
emphtisizcs the necessity of lhe
fruit growers uf British Columbia
preparing tn meet siill keener competition 111 tho future, lie thinks
ilmt it cannot lie reasonably expected that the present high prices can
continue, Qrowors must expect to,
in lime, get down In about a dollar
a liux, ut which price lie believes
Iheir   is  siill   gnnd  monoy  in  the
business.    But this reduction in
price will muke it yet. inure iinpnr-
tiuil thnl Ilu* farmer shull lie in ii
position tu secure u grcnter proportion than over of the profits, nnd
lu tin this ho must grow his crops
sclontlllloally, thnl is, with the leasl
possible expense |.i produce lhe liest;
lie must sec Ihnl the fruit is graded
aud | kefi in n wuy equal In thut
uf the liest nf liis rivnls, nnil then,

auspices of a central selling association, whicli is run in the intcresls
nf lhe farmors, lie will gu iniu nny

ers nf uny other purls uf Ibe world,
—Victoria Colonist,
The rapid growth nf lhe population in ull parts uf Ibe  provli   is
forcefully illustrated in the clronm-
stnnco Hint, tm fewer lhan twenty-
six new schools were applied fur
during the month uf Soptomhor.
Among those thut huve been grunted ure schools nl Coqtlitlam Hum,
Turtle Vnlley and Cltrsten. New
school buildings are promised the
communities uf Lower Nicola und
Crawford liny, while Alherni, now
tlmt it lius become n city, will provide for itself the new building
which its growth and population demands. At Grand Forks aconlract
has just been let fnr a 817,".Oil addition t" the high school.
Tbe stingless bee is the nc:' production of inuii's ingenuity. .Mr.
Burrows, nn apiarist of the tuwn i.f
Lottghton, in Essex, England, after
twu yeurs nf experiments, bus obtained a species nf bee whieh cun be
handled by a child with perfect
safety. He muted Cyprian drones
and Italian queens, tbe result lieing
the production of harmless insects,
which, however, nre splendid winkers. It is snid they are less liable
in disease thun the ordinary honey
gatherer! It appears tbnt the now
lice bns a sting, but it is harmless
ns a weapon nf defence, Yet the
bee dies wben he lnuscs it.

The Housewife Hay Use As Much "Gumption" in Spending the Family Income as
the Husband does in Earning it.
"Gumption" is not a slang word, by any
means. It is Americanese for' 'practical sense''
If the housewife doesn't us it, generously, in
making purchases for the home, she will find
the family income always insufficient-"glowingly insufficient!
Imprudence-"which is n form of non-gumption-*-will discount nnd
make futile even an increase in family income. For the easiest thing
in tho world is to drift along, paying a dollar too much for this thing
und a dime to much for that! And (his is tho invariable practice of
those buyers of family supplies who think it "too much troublo to
road tbn nils." For, you seo, ibe ads, are as important to the buyer
of homo supplies as are the market reports to n broker.
Tbe merchant's "store news" should be served to patrons, and prospective patrons, as promptly and as satisfactorily as ho would mako
delivery of goods.     To do this profitably use the Free Press.

! In* luul managed to keep tho (ire un*

ly,     Another mariner mentioned in
n casual manner. Hint tlie only Utile
experiences Ile cinilil cnll to mind was
the picking up lu the Pacific    of   a
small boat with two men in it.    one
of the men was dead, tlie other bare*
ly alive; his tongue fearfully swollen
was sticking out or his mouth, and
his oyos luul gime so far back In their
siiiitols Ihnl Ihey were scarcely visible.     He was tin* snle survivor from
au American ship that, had foundered
in iiilil-P.iclfic (luring a hurricane.
Captain Wldgory, the secretary, and
one of tlio original founders of the
ilnii. has had forty-five yours' exper-
Isuice of the sea, and is now retired.
Captain Wldgory, like his club-mates,
is not much disposed lo talk of his experiences, but. ho gave the representative, afler much pressing, an account
of a hurricane ho had once boen in
ilie Gulf of Muxico.
The wind was so bad that, tho ship
could make no headway at all against
it nnd Captain Wldgory ordered the
engines to be stopped. There was
nothing to be done, said Captain Widgery, but simply tu weather the hurricane out as best we could. The
ship was blown over by the force of
the wind until her decks wero almost
perpendicular, and we lay like that
for twenty-four hours.
The water whipped up by the wind
completely enveloped the ship in a
driving cloud of spray, through which
we could not see a yard ahead. The
sea Itself, you must understand, was
not heavy, for in these violent hurricanes so much water is blown off the
surface oi the sea, that the waves are
comparatively small.
Well, as I said, we lay for twenty-
four hours more than half blown over,
and the '.rouble was we did not know
where we were going, for during the
hurricane, n.t we saw neither sun nor
stars. It was quite Impossible to toke
a reckoning. We mlflit hnve been
blown on to she coast and wrecked:
but as it was we weathered (he hurricane out in safety, though we were
blown miles and miles out of our
course. Every parttcle of paint on
the ship on :he weather side was peeled off hy thc wind and water.
When the representative wan at. tbe
club, the telepiionc-bell rang frequently. At each ring the steward would
come In'o the smoking-room with n
message to say that Captain So-and-So
was required at the telephone. One
of these calls was a summons tliat
warned the master mariner who answered It that be would be wanted to
sail that evciing for Hong-Kong.

THE CRAZE FOR MONEY.
If we could blot out thc mental
impression thnt the possession of
money necessarily brings happiness,
fewer cases of embezzlement would
reach the police court, so Ibinks
thc Toronto News. "But it is
drummed into our cars from childhood that getting money is the proof
of successful living, that the man
deserving of our imitation is one
who by any means has amassed a
million dollars. So we have books
on "Success nnd How to Win it"—
page after page of wnrmed-over
platitudes, unctuous, with the oil of
patronage. Wc listen.ipcnmiintlu-d
to stories of real estate sales where
thc profit reuchetl almost fabulous
percentages. We look even reverently upon the vulgar pile of brick
und stone which some financial
marvel has erected, under the impression thnt it is a "home."
Magazines print portraitsof millionaires hy the twelfth of a gross. We
get life stories of successful men,
column after column. Is it any
wonder thnt thc great majority of
our young people begin to ltclii-ve
that the ability to own nsix cylinder ear or to wear diamond hucklcs
on tlieir siis|x>iidcrs is thc stamp of
true nubility?
"Canada is an expanding country. Opportunities for wealth getting arc plentiful. Any man with
a modicum of business sense and
with decent treatment can do well,
'can live in peace and plenty, and
can acquire enough to assure him
against |x*nury in declining years.
Hundreds of men with the genius
for money making will pile up good
fortunes. But money is not the
ond of living. Neither is it necessary for our peace of mind that we
should have everything that the
heart desires. The child with the
most toys is the least Contented.
And iu this case itliiivc nil others
the child is fnlber of the man.
"Men and women arc forever
wanting. A new ear, or a new
bouse, a new horse, or n new franchise, ii new set of furs, or a new
hut, and in the United Stales particularly a new husband or a new
wife. And when the want is grnti-
lieilllie happlnCH it brings is momentary nnil sellish.
Unquestionably it is true thnl
rich people arc Itecoming more
plentiful tlmn ladies and gentlemen.
Vulgar individuals decorated with
precious Stones sail down our city

POTATO POSSIBILITIES
What he is doing ami what many
muy do, in the potato line, makes
interesting reading, as told by Mr.
Kugene 11. Gi'tlbb, author of "Tho
Potato." The author of this book
lias been "thruugh the mill," anil
has worked nt every thing from
driving tow horses on the lowland
rivers to shoeing bronchos nl nn
elevation' of 11,000 feet on tbo
Aspen mountains. He is now engaged nl the congenial occupation
of making a fortune from potatoes.
But many move nro raising potatoes without thc fortune. Wherein lies the secret of his signal success? A trip to Europe in liiOO opened his eyes to the fact tlmt
American farm practice was lifty
yenrs behind European farm practice, When he snw Lord Hoscliery's
farm, where tbey were raising So
long ton loads, or 'J,(KH) bushels, nf
potatoes to the acre, ou Innd which
bus been producing for a thousand
yenrs, his Impressions wero strengthened. Nor was this an abnormal
crop. He ran across tho furm of
Will. Dennis A' Sun, who begun
forty years ago raising potatoes on
HtKIII acres of rented land, valued
at ?•".()() nn acre.
Theso seemingly tremendous crops
the English farmer owes to two
things only—cure of the soil nnil
selection of tbo seed. But these
two methods he practices ceaselessly.
The cure of thc soil, to him, means
two treatments—the growing of
leguminous plants and the feeding
with fertilizers. Thus the latter
firm mentioned in the lust paragraph kept (KM head of cattle on a
2,(Hll) acre furm, not to produce
butter and milk and beef primarily,
but to produce fertilizers whieh will
increase the yield of potatoes.
They plant a leguminous crop in
the field the day tbe crop of iHitnti.es
is lifted; so that another year ot
fertilizing may begin at once, nnd
that the soil may be kept free of
injurious growths.
Profiting l.y his visit, Mr. Orulib
put 500 head of cattle on his own
farm at Sourls, Colorado, He hits
500 acres of tillable soil and runs
it as a six-yc.ir rotation two years
in potatoes and four years in alfalfa
nnd clover. Every year he has 100
acres ip intensive potato cultivation
antl has never sold a stalk of hay
from his farm; feeding it all to his
herd, producing the most valuable
of all fertilizers—barnyard manure.
During the past twelve yenrs he
has increased his yield of potatoes
from 100 bushels to 4(H) bushels (ier
acre, and his oats from 40 bushels
to 100 bushels pcr nere.
In seed selections he favors the
European plan. Thc Oltl Country
growers maintain a special strain of
seed potatoes, with the fewest and
best placed eyes, the smoothest skin
and firmest flesh. But what seems
mure unusual, is their habit of
planting whole potatoes for seetl,
thus giving the young plant a rich
reservoir of nourishment on which
to grow wliile its tender footlets are
adapting themselves to their surroundings,
United Kingdom, 221 bushels;
Germany, 800 bushels; France, Itii)
hushels: Russia, 111 bushels; United
States, 114 bushels.
By this table the United States
yield is considerably hchind that of
the least civilized European countries. These are things the Canadian
farmer should consider, for European methods can he adapted to Canadian   conditions.—Vernon   News.
