Russian Wheat
Granaries in Southern Russia Overloaded With Grain
Grain dealers and cereal farmers
will be interested In a report recently
made from Petrograd by Commercial Attache Baker, lie says that the
granaries of estates und farms in
Southern Russia are overloaded with
grain left over from the last crop.
The grain can be moved only within
the limits of the same district, not
from one district to another, the object ot such restriction is to prevent
speculation, In the section named
growers of wheat and rye have not
been subjected to any embarrassment
In consequence of not being able to
ship from Odessa this year. The
demand from Itussia Itself has proved
unexpectedly large. The hanks have
assisted farmers and estate owners to
hold unsold portions of their grain.
| There has been no need for sacrifice
sales, and the prices paid liave been
satisfactory, if the route through the
Dardanelles should be opened, probably no sudden cr heavy oversea
export movement from Odessa would
develop. Thc necessity of holding
back large supplies as food, together
with Ihe fact that the freight service
is largely given up to
wuuld muke any rapid
wheat to Odessa inlikely, and as Ihe
financial position of Hussia makes it
desirable that existing high prices for
grain should be fairly well upheld,

Annual Loss to Farmers by Lightning
Is Very Large
Tho annual loss inflicted on farmers by lightning is In tho aggregate
lililury work, | very large, and  it is a matter of the
movement of (utmost importance to them to ascertain definitely whether (.his loss is preventable.    For all practical purposes,
the efforts to discover or invent some
means of safeguarding isolated buildings date, from  the time  when  Benjamin Franklin discovered the identity
of ele'etricity nnd lightning, more than
a century and n half ago.
Franklin was tho llrst to suggest
the practicability of protecting buildings from lightning hy erecting on
their highest points iron conductors
communicating with the ground. His
theory on the subject was all right,
but defects iu construction made the
lightning rod;, so ineffective and often
dangerous, that they were for a, long
time utterly, and not unreasonably,
discredited. There is uow good reason lo believe that, as Professor
Day shows, a trustworthy system of

Americans Know Canada
This country is so near Canada, and
so thoroughly informed concerning the
extent, resources and progress of its
neighbor across the northern boundary, that it has no doubts about the
future of Canadian finances. Thousands of Americans have visited the
principal cities of the Dominion since
the war began, and tbey are well
aware of the conditions existing
there. Such facts explain the great
rush to buy notes of tbe Canadian

market. Americans know Canada.

a grain stalk does, and it represents,
therefore, a dead or unrequited loss to

to learning how lo grapple successfully with this obstacle lo success in

appealed for temperance in other

from liquor. Especially did heap-

disintegrating influence of gossip,
especially in small communities,
aud of the pain caused to excellent
people by a few shallow pules and
busy bodies, whose tongues are far
more efficient than their thinking
powers, and certainly lacking in
that most excellent gift of charity.

Editor Review :
U .Sir,���Will you kindly allow tne a
little space iu your columns to place
a few facts and figures before the
ratepayers of our city which should
be of interest to them.
These figures have been obtained
fro 'i competent engineers, who
have been on the ground, by Aid,
Johnston, who has spent consider
able time and inoue
theni. The surveyors' maps and
engineer's estimates have bet it
handed to nie from which the foi
lowing statement is compiled :
The proposition is for the city to
instal a water and electric system of
its owu by making use of Brown's
Now, first I would like to draw
the ratepayers' attention to what
eugi.ue*fs have to say of the advisability of going to Brown's river in
preference to other proposed sources
Mr. F. W. Knewstubb in liis re-
port of 1913 to the Comptroller of
Water Rights 'ays ;
" With regard to the stream filed
on by the company (presumably
the Courtenay Waterworks Co Jon
July 30th this had fallen to 2.3
c.f.s. while Brown's: river on July
2ist gauged $2 5 c.f s,"
An engineer who was on the
ground this summer writes : " A
serious problem to be considered in
looking for a municipal water supply is that of finding a creek with
sufficient flow to maintain a health)'
condition of the water at the intake
In our examination several years
ago of the water supply ol the city
and power could be developed, at
from 2 to 3c per k.w ho-.ir,
To raise this *>.*i0,ooo the city
would sell bonds to the amount of
about $58,000 at go. 6 per cent,
repayable in 25 years. This would
realize about ,$52,000, which, allowing for commisdons,ete., would
net the required .$50,000. There
are different systems of repaying
iu obtaining j these bonds. The instalment system is probably the best for small
cities for by it the payments are
divided up equally over the whole
period, aud instead of placing a
certain amount in the bank yearly
as a sinking fund, this amount is
paid back to the bondholders which
makes the interest smaller each
The payments 011 a $60,000 loan by
this system would lie approximately fur
the first year ; Interest {53600, principal
5S130O.OO, while the last year wuuld be
interest JJ200, principal $5200,
As I have uot a table to give the
correct figures by this plan, I will
work out the cost to the city by the
old sinking fund system.
am unit, as this $36 we 1 ay yearly
for water and light would be just
that much less we would have to
pay on our propeih tax
On the other hand il yoll allow a
private contpnnv to own your water
aud light plan's you will pay this
$36 -.early to ilu- company and
your full share of the property tax
as well.
This i.s a propositi in which ea it
and every ratepayer should consider,
Yours truly,

II doesn't seem right thai the boys
should bo often feel thai they must
leave lioine for prolltuble and attractive employment, In most oilier lines
of business it is the hope of tho business man to sec his sons follow in the
same business nnd lake il over when
he leaves it. Plans are made to that
end, and the boy Is trained up to a
thorough understanding of the business. Of course it doesn't always
work out ns planned, but every effort
Is made by the parent in most cases.
On too many farms every energy
seems to be directed toward driving
the boy away from the farm as soon
as he is old enough to get away. Very
often bis father wants blm to stay,
urges and sometimes commands him
to stay. But it is too late. The boy
has never been made to feel that he
is a partner in the business of that

and had beer, fired at three places in
two weeks, so his parents had apprenticed him to a naturalist.
But even he found him slow. It
took him two hours to give the canaries their seed, and lo slick a pin
through a ,'.ead butterfly and four to
pick a convolvus. The only point
about him was thai he was .filling,
"And what," he nsked. having spent
a whole afternoon changing the gold
fishes'  water,  "shall   I  tlo  now,  sir?"
The naturalist ran his lingers
through his locks.
"Well, Robert," he replied, at length.
"I think you might lake the tortoise
out for a run."
Freedom for the Poles
In addressing the relchstag, the
German chancellor, Von Bethmann-
Hollweg, referred to the recent victories of the kaiser's armies In Russian Poland. In part he said: "The
present occupation of the Polish east
frontier is the beginning of an evolution whicli will lead the country, freed
from the Russia,-, yoke, towards a
brighter future, in whicli she will be
ablo to develop and cultivate her national character. Further German and
Austrian victories will free the Balkan
nations from oppression, and make
possible the principle of 'the Balkans
for the Balkan nations.'" Were Germany to be the final victor in tbis
world-conflict sli9 would emancipate
the Poles and the Balkan peoples just
as she has lifted the peoples of Alsace-Lorraine and Belgium to constitutional freedom.

Cows   Freshen   in   Fall
There  are so  mnny  advantages  In
having dairy cows    come   fresh  in
the fall, while Die disadvantages are
but very few. if any, that one wonders why so little   progress Is beingI
made In lhat direction.    Those who!
have silos, und no one can afford lui
dairy without a silo in these days of
high priced land, should be especially I

In other words, the cow Unit |
calves in the fall has n much better j
opportunity to produce a large
| amount of milk and butterfat in a
season than the one thai freshens in!
I the spring. This is readily appreciated upon a littlo reflection. Sup-
I pose a cow freshens in May u hep
pastures are good. She gives a large
flow of milk during Mny and June,
first because feed is abundant, and
second . because she has recently
freshened. But. no sooner has she
started than the hot months of July
and August with fiies nnd perhaps
dried up pastures are upon her and
the milk flow immediately drops-
When cooler weather returns nnd
grass revives there will be a slight

labor remaining practically the same.
It does not lake quite So long lo
milk a. cow giving a small annum I
ot milk as    one    producing a  large
flow,  but.  if requires  just as  much
labor to feed    and  care    for a  low
producer us for the highest producer
in  the  world, and  the  task of doing
the other chores is the same for nil
kinds of cows,
lt is safe to say that  a given cow
will produce   twenty per cent, more
milk and butterfat when she calves
in the full    than    when she  comes
fresh in Ihe spring.   This increase in
production should in itself be. enough
to cause  any dairyman  to at  least
have the majority of his cows freshen
in the fall, but there are more  factors  favoring the  practice.    One  of
these is the higher price which dairy
products command    in    winter than
in summer,    Another is the cheaper
labor.   Labor  is  cheapest during the
period   when  milk  and   butter  bring
the   highest   prices   on   the market.
Then, too, the   farmer    himself can
devote more    time    to   the cows in
winter when   farm   work is reduced
to a minimum and  his  time  is  not
so valuable.   The   first three months
after  spring opens    are the  busiest  ,
in   the   whole   year   for the farmer,! m common.   |:i:ii':
just when cows   that calve    in the
spring need the most attention.   The
Inevitable result is more or less neglect, and neglect curly in the lactation period is mighty expensive business.
