The local Orange Lodge celebrated the glorious 12th by going to
Cumberland on Sunday morning
with the brethern of that city, aud
in the evening they attended Divine
Service at Courtenay, where Key.
T. Menzies preached an excellent
sermon. The church was well fd
led, The choir had special music
for the occasion. This was the
largest Orange parade ever held in
Ccurtenay. A number of the
Cumberland brethern were al.so
present. On Monday afternoon a
picnic was held across the river, at
whicli there was a good attendance

Mayor Kilpatrick, Aid, Cromptou and Wm. Duncan, the committee who went to Victoria to interview the Minister of Public
Works on the matter of a new
bridge across the Courteuay River,
returned last Thursday nitflit- They
were told that the Government En
giiieer had recommended that if
two bents were placed under the
bridge he was of the opinion that
it would last for a number of years.
The deputation also pointed out
that when the river was in flood
and a number of logs came floating down these bents would cause a
jam, and the bridge might not
stand the strain.
Mr. Taylor informed the deputation that the Government only
built bridges in Rural Municipalities and not in City Municipalities
it was impossible for him to do
anything in the matter as the
bridge appropriations for this year
amounted only J3OO.OO0, whereas,
last year $1,000,000 was granted,
however, he would place the qties-
tion before the Executive Council
for their consideration. On the
matter being placed before them,
the Council decided to adopt the
engineer's report audi have two
bents placed under the bridge at
the expense of the Government,
and rext ye��r when the estimates
are brought down, a new bridge
for Courtenay River will be considered.

By Introducing u System <>f District Representatives, the Ontari0
Department of Agriculture, lias shown some Remarkable      '
Results in the Increase of Land Values
The wisdom of tlie Ontario government iu Introducing   the   Byiteut
of    district    representatives    of  tlie
department of agriculture   has been
shown by tlio I'eSUlta that already
have followed theni, In 11)07 six
graduates of the Ontario Agricultural
College were given local offices In
���Ix counties. Their work met with
���u much favor that the people thein-
lelves demanded increases in these
appointments, until today they number 41, covering practically the whole
province from Glengarry to itninj
Ity this means the benefits of tlie
colleges  and   the   results   of    lhe   i".
perlmentul farms, are carried ami
applied to lha farms in such a way
hh to favorably Influence production
and Improve social conditions, Much

generally an undergraduate us well
as u stenographer, I,mat conditions

while the initiative of iiie department
Is aide lo emphasize any special
work iii the county that might make
for increased production ami thrift.
Classes are held to tench lliose subjects ospe.iaih needful In agricultural occupations nnd while these at
flrsl were attended by a very few,
there are now about 1,000 young
farmers between is and ;w years, attending and enjoying th   Instruction.
And llieir works have Justified
tlieir faith. Drainage surveys are
made free. AllJ farmer can get a
special drainage plan with tlie best
expert advice i.s how best to handle
his fields. The results have enormously stimulated rural enterprise.
In Prime Edward county Ilve ear-
loads of drain tiles were put iu In
lull, while over HU miles of tile draining has been done each year since, lu
one instilnco a bold that cost ?la per
acre to dr in. yielded $000 in canning

a representative, has made Canadian-
grown corn famous and has raised

In the Napanoo market. Last year
tlie same market returned $63,000 to
tlie local farmers. This was directly due to the effort; of the egg circle
work of the local  representatives.'
Perhaps no liner instance of farm
enterprise exists than in the cast of
I.atiibton. ln lulu this county imported vegetables and fruit, to feed
its people, as it produced only 25 per
cent, of ils needs. Last year it
shipped out .10,1100 bushels of potatoes and 1.1112 Jons of vegetables, besides harvesting a crop of peaches
and tender fruits. These tender fruits
were only a dream formerly and now
Lambton farm lands arc looked upon
as one of the best tender fruit sections of Canada. Land values have
risen from $26 lo $100 per acre, while
peach lands easily demand $200 per
acre, those being directly due to the
work of the department.
The school fairs and local young
farmers' clubs 'bat have grown out
of the movement are marks of tbe
healthy rural awakening.

This Is matter in which financiers

, farmers have more money they buy

In turn    Increase their purchases of

Financial Post, Toronto.
Not only might Manitoba profit by
the wisdom shown by the Ontario department of agriculture, as pointed out
by tbe Financial Post, but the governments of Saskatchewan and Alberta as well as British Columbia,
I might well follow the example- Local
conditions call for special study, and
tlie benefit of district representatives
in the western provinces, would prove
of Inestimable vain. In stimulating

Hie feeding uf potatoes to livestock. (
In Germany, where lhe sllualion is
considerably different, the question
has been studied much more. The
general conclusion arrived at is that
they may be successfully used in feeding daily cows, burses, sheep and pigs
ln tiie case of horses and pigs the
Germiin practice has beon to steam
the potatoes- In America it is probable
that surplus potatoes can best be
used for dairy cows. The total digestive nutrients In a ton of potatoes
Will he slightly mire than one-llfth as
much as would be contained in a ton
of cornmeal. The potatoes are even
more highly carbonaceous than the
cornmeal and naturally would bu best
fed in conjunction with those feeds
tliat-supply an abundance of protein.
There is another factor, however, Involved, thai is of considerable importance. Kaw potatoes are a succulent
food, and used In connection with a ration that is deficient in succulence
(usually one that does nol include
corn silage) they would hnve a value
about that, indicated by lhe total* digestive nutrients. Some succulent
food Is desirable in all nil ions, and a
moderate amount of such food, when
added as above, produces an effect
above that, wliieh would be indicated
by the nutrients present. The writer's
personal experience is that as small
an amount as half a peck a day fed all
dairy cows (lacking olher succulence)
produces quite a marked effect in the
milk flow, and two or tbree times this
amount may be fed to advantage, if
the potatoes are available. Uut they
should be introduced inlo the ration
gradually. To avoid danger from
choking it is well to run the potatoes
through a root cutter. It is impossible
to give a cash valuation to a foodstuff
of this kind, except as a result of
careful experiment. It is probable that
under ordinary circumstances and the
present, condition of tlie grain market, potatoes might be figured at from
15 to 20 cents a bushel for feeding
purposes, and if succulence were sadly
needed they might reach an effect
equivalent to a valuation of 25 cents
a bushel.

Experiments with Alfalfa
The 8est Rates of Seeding Under Certain Conditions
Only by systematic experimentation
on the purl uf the individual growers
living in various sections can be
proved the true worth of alfalfa as a
soil improver and a forage plant.
This was the opinion which L. F.
Graber, secretary of the Alfalfa Order
of the Wisconsin Agricultural Experiment association, expressed at the organization meeting of the Kentucky-
Alfalfa Growers' association. He re-_|
ported that in Wisconsin many of the
growers have been carrying nn experiments for several years to determine
the best rates of seeding nml hnve
found lhal fiom fifteen to twenty
pounds lo the acre are generally besl
under Badger suite conditions.
Southern and northern grown seed
have also been tried out in competition witli each other. The reason has
been that, southern and southwestern
seed, which usually is somewhat
cheaper, seems to do as well under
Wisconsin conditions as lhat grown
farther north,
The Wisconsin Alfalfa association
numbers 1,000 members and is steadily growing in popularity and influence. Tlie policy of the organization
is a conservative one, its members
not desiring to encourage the growing
of alfalfa in places where clover grows
more easily and luxuriantly.

Geoffrey was slighlly puzzled bnt,
like a good soldier, he nsked no
quest ions. .More and more Im was
coming lo recognize that it was
Ralph's to command and bis lo
obey. Doubtless Ralph had some
good reason when Im treated his
nephew like a puppet, but then the
puppet, was a long way from n fool,
and as the days went on, it came
home to him with an increasing
force that he had a master mind lo
deal  with.
He hud been told off this afternoon
to lurk more or less concealed al Um
top nf the sleep pilch lending to Um
village, nnd (hero wait until something
happened. It came at the end of a
few minutes in lhe shape of a lady iu
perfect cycling costume, wheeling a
machine up Um hill towards Jessop's
farm. As she eame nearer lo the spot
where Geoffrey was smoking, a ragged nomad sprang from tlm hedge and
demanded alius. The man wus course
und threatening, be was hy no means
sober, and his demands took lhe by-
no-means modest form of a shilling,
A second later there wns a slight
scream and Geoffrey darted forward.
The sight of a woman in distress sufficed ior him, Ralph was forgotten
in an instant. There was a scuffle
and a plunge, a rapid exit of the nom-
nd nnd. lint in hand, Geoffrey was receiving the thanks of a beautiful
woman, who wus pleased to assure
htm thnt he wns her preserver.
"It is nothing," Geoffrey stammered,
"nothing, really."
lt was not usual for him to he confused like this- Uut then he wns
standing face lo face with tlm handsome stranger who had taken Mr. Jessop's rooms, the lady with Ihe love of
white (lowers, the woman who employed Oriental servants, who were given
to strange incantations, tlm creature
in whom Ralpli Ravenspur hnd tnken
sn vivid un interest.
And Geoffrey's confusion grew none
the less us it. flashed upon bim that,
the Intoxicated tramp had been the
god in the ear designed by Ralph
lo bring this Introduction nbout,
lie steadied himself. There wus
work  before him  now.
"You exaggerate my poor services."
he said.
"Noi ai ull, 1 assure yon," tlm lady
said. Her eyes held a Strange fascination; her voice was low ami
sweetly sedative. She was years older than Geoffrey, bul just tin kind of
siren who drove young men mad, or
lured them to destruction. "Few j
.���.imagers would have laced so foruiid-1
able an  opponent  lor  inc."
"Most of mv countrymen would,"
Geoffrey said "I hope you have a better opinion of Englishmen than lhat.
Hut Englishmen are not favorites
The  dark   eyes   were   dancing   witli
"You are under tlm impression that
I um not English?" she asked.
"Well, there is a certain grace."
Geoffrey slam'mered, "lhat spoke of���"
"Foreign blood. Precisely. But all
the same. I am proud to enll myself

More    Profitable    to   Feed   Stook   on
Oats   in   the   Sheaf
I believe the -modern method of
handling and feed.ng is undoubtedly
wrong so far us the entire oat crop !s
concerned, says a writer in the In-
dtana Farmer, Thut is to say, the modern method requires the oats lo be,
threshed. Then the grain is fed, and
the straw so far as getting any good
results ns stock food is largely a
loss. Horses, cattle and sheep nre all
very fund of oats. When either in
sheaves or cut down nnd cured like
meadow grasses and then put through
a straw cutter, stock out up cleanly
both the gruin and the straw, und
grow and ttcn ..i"ely with but litlle
olher gruin or hn.. Animals are eoi.i-
pelled to eat the draw while getting
the grain. This straw gives bulk to
the   feed.
The lime was when "very farmer
grew large lields of oats and outside
of what was required for seed, the remainder of the crop was cut and fed
lo stock. ".i the spring time the work
horses were fed liberally on the cut
oats, but during the heavy work
season "chop" was made. That, is, after the outsWere cut. they were dampened and i ixed with line corn meal,
wheat, bran and middlings, A good ration of oats so prepared, nnd Hired
to live ears of com, with some good
hay at nigl.l, kept the teams in good '
Ilesb and strong for this hard labor, i
Sreh a vast quantity of food Is produced to the acre, and the stock do so
well, thnl if farmers will quit threshing their oats, and feed the entire crop
oats growing will Iind a heller place,
and be more profitable than the present method. I-'or the milk cows, the
"chop" feed us recommended fnr the

the greatest difficulty because her

Tbe woman who is indoors all day is
very often careless about what she
eats and does not keep her blood up

poor, which makes her weak,'headachy, tired, breathless and liable to

About Gasoline
The Mistaken Opinion, Generally  Prevalent, That High Gravity Caso-
^      line   is   the   Most   Efficient
The following arc some extracts
from a scries of urllclos entitled
"Gasoline; Some Aspects ur ll," which
was published in "Motor Age'' during
November, 1911;
"It is dlfftcull lu approach the subject of gasoline without having in
deal with gravity. Tho first question
a motorist asks after lie has his tank
tilled is, 'What gravity,"
"Car owners have, lime without end,
asked  for 71) or 70 gasoline uud  yet
did not know what they were asking i
about.    Ignorance in this matter has |
been exhibited time aud time again iu I
track und road races.   One   concern
would nnt use anything but S"> gravity |
gasoline because Ihey claimed il was
quicker  and   more    powerful���hence
the car would make better speed,    lu
the same meet, another concern would
not use anything but 5ii gravity on the
ground lhat it gavo more power and
was faster.   Here wore the Iwo oppos-
Ites,   In the race, it happened lhal the
car with lhe 5(1 beat the ear with the
83.   The race proved one thing���tbat
the ail had mure power in it,, gallon
l'or gallon, than the 85.
"Gravity   simply    means     weight.
There are two scales in common use:
Specific  and   Heaitme.    Tliese  scales
simply lell us the relative weight of a
liquid  compared  with water,    ln  Ibe
lleaiiine scale,  water is  taken  at  an
arbitrary  point,   being   lu.    A   liquid
weighing less than water is expressed '
by figures higher than Hi.    It will be I
seen that, a liquid that is 50 degrees
Beaiime  is  lighter  than   water,   but !
heavier than a liquid    that is 70 degrees  Beaume.    In other  words, the |
higher the numerals, the lighter the |
liquid;   the lower the  numerals, the'
heavier the liquid.    When wo buy a I
gallon of 7(1 gravity gasoline, we know j
we get fewer pounds than when we
buy t!0 gravity, and us we always buy 1
by the gallon and not, by the pound, it i
would     seem  we  get  more  l'or our J
money  by  buying  the  lower gravity
'The  thing lhat  puzzled    us  most
about  gravity  was  the  fact  that  it |
never seemed to stay 'put.' When we 1
tested it in one section ot the conn-1
try,   wc   obtained   a   different   result
from that secured in another section.
For  instance���working with  gasoline
in tho Atlantic coast states, we reached the conclusion that we must have
a gasoline of about CO gravity,   when
we  got  lower than   this,   we  found |
difficulty in starling a car, and when 1
we got a higher test gasoline we did |
not get. the power, and so If we had |
stopped here, we would have unhesitatingly saitl 'Use gasoline as near (id
gravity as you can' get.' But to our
surprise when  we got  into Ohio and !
experimented   with     gasoline   made 1
from  Lima  crude,   we  found  that  b"2
gravity gave the beat results. Working farther west, with gasoline made
from   Kansas  and   Oklahoma  crude,
another surprise met us.    Fifty-eight |
to 60.gravity gasoline showed up best
in  every tost.    Texas and California
crude  proved  most    satisfactory    at.
about SU gravity.    But we must confess we Mere surprised when we tested a gasoline thai  was purported to '
be made trom Borneo crude which had I
a gravity of 4- degrees. This gave ex-
cofiont results.
"What did this all means? It seemed ;
to tell us plainly and unmistakably 1
that gravity was nol a true standard. I
it established the fad thai the grav-
Ily of gasoline is always heavier or
lighter, corresponding to the crude
from which it is produced.
"'If gravity is not a true lest, whal
Is?'    Wc  found  ourselves asking the!
question  long  before  we    had    pro-
gressed (his far in our Investigation,
It seemed lo us that the refiners must |
have   some   method     of  ascertaining
whether or not a gasoline will meet
certain requirements.   There must he j
some reason  why r>S gravity Kansas
gasoline performs the same as the Cd
gravity Pennsylvania.
' As  a matter of  fact,  gasoline  is-
known     to  the  refiner simply as  a
member ot the naptha family.  The refiner  knows  and  distinguishes   each
member of this family, not by gravity, I
but  hy  boiling  poinis.  He knows  it '
would   be   impossible   to    mako    his
goods uniform by using the fleeting1
standard of gravity, but knowing the j
boiling  points,  he  can  depend  upon
the quality of (he goods. It is not dif
ficult tn understand whal boiling point
means. 11 is the point on a Fahren
hell thermometer al which u liquid
will begin tu bod.
"Tin.' rellner distils a given quantity
of gasoline ami while il is li ihe pro
cess ei dlBtlllatlon, ascertains at what
point each 10% will boil, until the entire quantity is evaporated or dl II 1
in this manner, he determines what is
known as the Initial boiling point, as
well as the maximum boiling point
ami all Intervening boiling points.
"Our interest centres more particularly iii gasoline best adapted tu motor
use. Whal have boiling points lu do
with this? Everything, We wani an
engine to atari quickly, Low Initial
boiling points tell ihe story, ii evaporates or volatilizes quloltly in cold
weather ami siaris quickly, It is pus
Bible tu produce from sume crude oil,
gasoline having as low boiling points
ami much lower gravity than is produced from other crudes, High gravity dues not necessarily mean low Initial boiling points, uud unless we have
low Initial boiling points, there will
be trouble in Starting a car no matter
how high thc gravity is. Sn lhal fur
easy starting, a certain percentage ot
low boiling poinis is absolutely essential, (liven this percentage, it is just
as essential thnt ihr other fractions
show gradually rising ami higher bulling points."
These slat, incuts in "Motor Age"
show conclusively thai gruvlty is nut
a true lest of quality in motor furl.
Heat units determine the power in
a gallon uf gasoline. The higher llie
gravity the less heat units contained
therein per gallon.
Hence high gravity gasoline means
fewer miles per gallon. If motorists
generally appreciated this elementary
fact  of  physics,  there  would   be  IBBS
demand for high gravity and more emphasis on low initial bulling point,
which is what the man who drives a
car is really concerned aboul. Ilign
gravity gasoline bus been demanded
because high gravity has erroneously
become associated wiih rapid vaporization and freedom trom starting
troubles. As a matter of fact, what
really determines quick starting is the
boiling point of th.' gasoline, not ils
One consequence of ihe fallacious
Insistence 011 high gravity gasoline
has been ihe marketing of mixtures
and blends whicli are anything hul desirable from the motorists' point of
view, A very high gravity gasoline,
generally produced by condensing gas
under pressure is mixed with a heavier product in order thai Ihc average
gravity mny conform to tbe public demand for high gravlLy gasoline, The
difficulty wilb this is thai the two
gravities separate out in the tank.
The lighter fraction passes on first,
leaving a heavy residue whicli makes
trouble in starting and is responsible
for a great, deal uf lhe carbonization
so often complained uf.
The first requisite of u motor fuel
is that it be a homogeneous, straight
distilled product. By straight distilled
is meant the gasoline which is obtained by a straight cut of one fraction
of the crude during the refining process.

About two-weeks ago,   early (4 a. in.)

anything is preferable lu remaining inactive under heavy fire. Before wc left
our trenches, our artillery had been doing
some great work in paving lhe way fur
us. Tin' destruction of high explosives
is awful.
As soon as we showed ourselves over
tlie parapet we were met with an awful
hail of bullets from machine guns and
rifles. To see the bunch coolv walking
across the field, one would Imagine thnt we
were on parade. To make matters wors*
we had to cross some water too wide to
jump���to have hesitated for a minute
would have been fatal! We kept right
on and through an orchard to the far side
where wc were told to "dig in." We
were very close to the Germans, now
being less than a hundred yards distant,
Part of our equipment is an entreneh-
l'ig tool and 1'iis was poom at work. All
the llllle this awful hail nl load had kept
up. lt did not take us long to get a hole
in old mother earth. After each ont had
a hole s ti (Tie i e nt to pro!" ct himself, the)'
were joined and in this wnv a trench was

Just before daylight wc were relieved by
another battalion. The coming out was
almost as perilous as the going in.
Needless to say tlle price paid for this
advance was awful.
The hardest part ol it all is that when
' your chum falls you cannot stop, when
j advancing, to look after him. Uut you
I can easily see that if we were allowed to
tlo so there would he no advance.
