The Lumber Industry
Specially  Written  for the Compilers of   "BRITISH
By A. E. WATTS, Wattsburic. B. C.
During an interview A. K. Wntts,
President ot the Wattsburg Lumber
Co., Ltd., stated that the Wattsburg
mill was cleaning up preparatory to
closing down indellnntely, which has
hitherto always been operating summer and winter nnd still has au a-
bundance of timber close by.
That their Proctor mill ts about to
start operations but only for the' pur
pose of sawing logs thnt would other
wise spoil, not because the lumber
waB required, or prolituble to make
or ship at the present prices prevailing, owing to the dumping ol American lumber on to the only market
the Interior nl B.C. possesses; tbat
this state of allairs and the consequent depression of business in the
Interior ol B.C. wus entirely due to
the lact that the lumher industry was
and ls, a martyr to political expediency and the ignorance and crass
stupidity ol some mnnulacturers who
are afraid to confers that their business is not profitable, fearing the lasb
ot their financial musters, otherwise
even the opposition in Parliament to
the demands for justice to B.C.
would be willing to grnnt Justice to
a persecuted Industry. Rut more ot
this Mr. Wntts will explain in his articles now being written tor the compilers of the HiRtory of B.C., which
will be published in short chapters,
In the press prior to publication in
the History of B.C.
The vast areas of valuable timber
possessed hy British Columhla have
provided the Province with one third
ol its total Income, consequently this
Industry is of great Importance; not
only to those directly engaged in the
business but to the allied trudes,
merchsnts and others. When this
business is depressed the effects ure
keenly lelt throughout the province.
The rapid development and expansion of business In the udjoining
Prairie Provinces, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, provide a mag
nlflcent market lor the product ol the
interior lumber mills ol British Columbia, but that is their only market.
The coast mills have the world lor
their market, consequently they do
not feel the results of the severe com
petition cnttsed by the dumping ol
the cheapest grades nl lumber by the
American Manufacturers from the adjoining States ol Washington. Montana and Idaho, which enter Canada

free ol duty—the lumber Industry being the only one left open to the rav
ages of foreign competition. The
reasons for this are peculiar, the lum
her business being the victim of political expediency.
The question Is often usked "Why
Canadian Manufacturers cannot make
lumber as cheaply us their neighbors?
They can, although they aro handicapped by a duty on nil tbe supplies
tbey use, hut owing to the superior
stability of Canadian Hanking insti
tutions during times ot depression
their clients are uot so hard pressed,
the tlnancial lush is used more moderately ln Canada than in the Uuited
States, many American manufacturer
ure compelled to realise on their
stocks at very much below the coBt
of production. 1 have recently been
severely criticised by the American
press for making such statements,Ivut
being true I presume the smart is
tbe keener.
In a standard und Historical work
of this kind for future reference tig-
tires may prove useful although dry
tending tor the general public, they
will show the reasons why a once
prosperous induBtry conducted by
pioneers, hardly sons of toll, descend
ed from u prosperous eminence to tbe
point of struggling for distance, undermined by foreign competition
driven with a financial lush more
cruel tlnin the nigger drivers used.

itical,financial, commercial and other;
how nnd why the magnificent timber
resources of this country are wasted
and capital squandered with no result, and unjustly injuring the credit
of Canada, und discounting her vust
resources in the financial centres ot
the world. The simple truth plainly
told will restore conlidence in tbe potentialities or possibilities in a country so richly endowed with latent
wealth awaiting development, but
handicapped by seltish politicians,

Boy's Scouts Organized
Grown-ups and Boys All Interested —Organization
Promises to be Successful from the Start
The Canadian Uoy Scout movairnmt;
has reached Cranbrook. The boys ftre
sincere iu their earnestness. To havo
seen the lnrg-e number which turned
tip at the meeting on Wednesday even
ing in the Gym, would hnve dislodged
and doubts as to the possibility ot
the movement succedlnij in Crnnbrook
Mr. J. P. Leslie, acting Bcout master of the new brigade has been working (or some time now in trying to
L-et the; boys together and interesting
them suHlclently in the work to ar-
rouse their eagerness to join.
At the meeting Mr. Leslie gave a
somewhat lengthy talk about the
movement, how it was taking hold of
tbe boyB from one end of the land to
the other; reading a number of extracts from various paper--; to buck
up hU assertions. Mr. Leslie.laid
particular Btress on the fact that one
of the main principles involved in the
work and accrued to tbe boy scout
the moat benefit was its advantage
ns a character builder. In this case
quoting "The Canadian Boy Scout"
l»y Buden Powell ns the authority lor
tbe tremendous results fn this direction.
Mr. K. V. Dangerfteld of Calgary, a
man greatly interested in the movement, in his short address he made
particular stress that the impressions
a boy received from the aire o| 11 to
12 up were fundermental for the rest
of liis life; therefore, they should be
cultivated and trained in the best
way, no better way has been discovered than that of the Boy Scouts
which is discipline ami order of thej
highest kind. No acout Is a good!
scout unless he ovieys, this will natur
ally lead to greater respect for the j
leaders and parents.
Oue thing not to be Inst sight of iB
that the movement is undenominatiou j
al, this iB an important feature, and,
no parent need have any qualms of
conscience in thiB respect. \
Mr. I)an?erft>1d drew the hoya atten
tion to tbe fact that in Red Deer the
Boy Scouts ot that district gave
their aasistaace to the tracking of a
criminal aud three hoys succeeded in
tracking aud holding the big husky
fellow until larger assistance arrived
to make his arrest.
Mr. [fl, H. L. Attree, one time scout
master nt SpareawolU. Winchester,
Kngland, drew the boys attention to
the wonderful possibilities there are
in this district for developing tbe boy
scout training, the hills woods, and
in parts thick undergrowth all will
play their part uud an Important
part jn the work at hand.
At the close a business- meeting was
called,   Rev.   W.   Stephens and  Rev.
Dunham addressed the gathering.
The otTUcera elected were as follows
President—J,  D.   McBride
Vice-T resident—L.  J. Cranston

Rev. W. K. Dunham.
In the May numher of the Woman's
Home Companion, a mother gives her
personal experiences with her trouble
some boy of twelve or fourteen years
of  age  and  tells how  his  connection
with the Boy Scouts of America made
a better boy of him.      "The twelve
points  ot  the  Scout law,"   sayi
mother, in her article, are
1. A Scout is trustworthy
2. A Scout is loyal
3. A Scout Is helpful
4. A Scout Is friendly
R. A Scout ts courteous
G. A Scout is kind
7. A Hcout is obedient
H. A Scout is cheerful
9. A Scout is thrifty
10. A Scout is brave
11. A Scout is clean
12. A Bcout Ib reverent
After telling how her sou entered
the movement, she goes on to gay:
"* had hoped my boy would b* all
these things, nnd had so admonished
him. But these are scout laws, mind
you, not advice nnd admonitions,- uot
hopes backed by maternal pleadings
and fears, but laws, self-imposed when
the Scout takes his onth; for in taking tho oath he promises to obey
these laws. That settles it. II the
Scout movement stood tor these
things, and inspired and exacted
them, I was with it, heart and soul.
"From the start the whole thing
thing was a great success. The Boy,
for one, benefited immensely by the
sssociation. It would take me too
long to tell how much. I only tell
you humbly that some of the faults
ln him which I had worked with for
years, such ns selfishness, uhiftlessnes
occassional cowardice, and sometimes
irreverence, began to disappear, and
without fret or friction. A good
Scout had none of these faults: they
are against the Scout law. He waB
trying to be a good scout; that waa
"Have you a boy of your own? It
you have, I think you cannot do better than to look into the Scout move
ment. He is sure to hear of it, and,
it he is anywhere near twelve, or thir
teen, or fourteen, he is pretty sure to
want to join It. I beg of you, too,
not to put anything in his way; and
then further, I beg you to keep your
hands off, Your pnrt ts to listen
when he talks to you about it; to
approve; to have a good supper waiting for him when he comes back from
hl« Scout tramps, and to continue to
say your prayers at night for hitn."

Boxing in Cranbrook
Severe Opposition Should be Manifest Towards It
Unfair to Local Talent
Billy Nut ol Reglna mill Charlie
Caven of New Mlcliel ure scheduled to
meet In n boxing contest In the Auditorium on Monday June 17th.
Thiii Hunt, If allowed to proceed, Ib
absolutely unfair to the local talent,
when young Sttceter received a challenge from Fred Lang of Spokane,
permission waa asked to have the con
teat fought ln Oranbrook, the light to
be held in the Auditorium Theatre,
and ii tllatlnct negative wns given to
the request ns NO MORE FIGHTS
When H. Simpson, Fred Lang's
manager, cnnie In Irom Spokane to
make the necessary arrangements he
distinctly told our representative
Hint In all probability there would
be enough sporting men come In from
Spokane as to be necessary almost to
charter a special train, ('runted thla,
sporting men from across the line
would never come here without plenty
of money   In   their pockets to meet
their oft-times extravagant needs.
Wheu they returned home It would be
with depletod pockets as a considerable amount, could not help but be
lelt ln the city.
From a mercenary standpoint this
tight of Streotor versus Lang would
have been nn help to Cranbrook.
From un advertising point of view
thu publicity given to the Spokan
Idol through the medium of the Spok
nne Rovlew and other dallies of tbe
metropolis would have been such us
to make Crnnbrook, In sporting circle
as well as In others, a byword for n
time; the number of visitors from all
round tho district would have provided the means necessary to **rovide lo-
I'ul citizens the Joy of showing what
we have bole and the progress we are,
Lothlirldgo is now to receive ull
this, as Htrootor and Lang are scheduled to moot In the prnlrle city.—
Trust tho prnlrle city for letting a
lot of freo advertising go by.
The fight we now hnve scheduled Is
for rank outsiders—both of them—anil
the same arguments could easily be
upheld, but as they are unknown mat
erlal they ure uo drawing card and
we i-uostlou If they would get but
half a house ln attendance.
As we said nl the flrst tills Dght Is
distinctly unfair to the local talent
and should not be allowed to proceed
Nothing whatever can be said In Its
favor and tbe act of Injustice would
rankle in the minds of local puuplo.
It these Hotting Contests nre to be
allowed give local boys ALL the preference, II wo have any to hold the
honors. II the local boys are not allowed to light, why, stop these contests right awny und let nn one
strudille the fence In favor ol one or
tbe other.
The power Is principally held by
the chief of police Cory How, hut We
arc in hopes that steps will at once
be taken to stop this unfair exhlbl
tlon to the local boys.

In bringing the project forward,
the committee are using every means

In addition to the Colonlnl products to be exhibited, British manufacturers will, It Is hoped, help to
■nuke the Exhibition thoroughly representative. It is proposed to send
commissions to the Colonies, with
the object of bringing the possibilities of the scheme before manufacturers, exporters, and the Colonial
public generally, At the same time,
representatives will tour the HrttlBh

A special feature will be mad. ot

advantages likely to occrue to tbe

Photographing Indians.
Iu almost every city where the 101
Kancl. Real Wild Went Show exhibits
the Indian village ia beseiged by photographers anxious to secure perfect
holographs of the Indians. At first
the rod ind with characteristic pride
ook kindly to tbe efforts of tbe simp
Hhooters and posed willingly in order
hat perfect results might be obtained
When the photographers commenced
to tender pieces of money when the
photographs had been obtained the In
liana wake up to the realization
that their pictures had a commercial
,*fllue and now they refuse to Btand
or any more free sittings. Their
tUBlness tart has been so well devolved that they demand the money
irst and na such as it is given then
'he Indian becomes a willing subject
or tho photographer. They have not
jecidod on any regular price and a
'ally colored handkerchief or hand
nlrror will gain a suitable subject
niich quicker than will a twenty dollar bill. Thu strange part of it is
that the Indian never expects any rerun! from the lady kodak handlers
and there is no limit in their posing
or them. This may he Indian gallantry but Ik more probable that the
Indian is of the opinion that the
white ladies hold the same position
with their families as does the st.uuw
with her family. That is, she is never allowed to own anything that the
Indian wants. Chief "Many Horses"
ilways inaists that one of the photo*
graphs taven of himself be nailed binv
ind his teepee is adorned with many
good and more bad efforts of the
photographers 'for whom he has posed
The aiiuawa have no particular in
this perpetuation of their fares and
would never submit to sittings or
standings were It not for the fact
that the bucks-insist upon it in order
that more rewards may come their
way. Not ths way of the nquawa hut
the way of their lord and musters,
for no Indian haa ever been accused
of giving bis Squaw anything he want
oil himself, That is not Indian like
One noticeable trait of the Indian is
.- hi'ii he wants anything he wants it
■nd will sacrifice everything else he
poSBOHSOfl in orai-r to secure the one
(inverted article and frequently he wil
[ive teu times its value only  to In-
hide it among bis other possessions
to baiter for BOmstllillg else that may
strike his peculiar fancy.

.loci Gilford aroused himself from
lhe half lounging position he had assumed when Bcuton begun his narrative, nud, although he had been a
close listener tu the story, his own
thoughts must bnve made a sad running accompaniment lo the title, for
his eyes were (ull of (roubled reminiscence.
lie lifted his eyes lo lhe mantelpiece, where an old fashioned mirror
hung in such ti position that it rellcct-
ed the door into the hall. Joel (lit-
ford saw n picture trained In Hint
doorway, mid ho half rose from his
chair nud pointed with n slinking Ilu-
ger at the face he saw in the glass.
It was the face of a lull, black
bearded man, with a narrow head and
little black eyes gleaming wickedly be-
ueath bushy brows, lie was staring
nt Joel Gilford as it fascinated by the
younger man's fuce. Thero was ferocity In his gaze, as well as surprise
and fear.

Each Family Has Its Own Flock and

There are many small villages in
tbo world that have only ono street,
but Lerwick, In Shetland, besides having only a single street, possesses only
one tree. There nre no birds there,
not even a sparrow, but the seagulls
are plentiful.
The seagulls are tbe sparrows of
Lerwick, and as such fhey have a
greater share Iu tbe town's life than
the sparrows of London. In the morning you will note tbat a seagull sits on
every chimney pot. Seagulls swoop
aud hover over every roof ln town.
The air Is fui of their strange, high,
plaintive, haunting cries.
Kvery house lias lis own familiar
seagulls and every street Its owu band
of them. Rut they never mix. The
children tn each house have a pet
name for their own particular seagulls, and having called them by thoso
names, tbey feed tbem every day,
Knch seagull knows what is meant
for him. No bird attached to one
house ever seeks to eat the food scattered from tbo house next door. He
docs not dare to do so. So ail day long
the seagulls hov<*r nnd call over the
roofs of Lerwick.

Curious Experi.nc. of a German Organist In St, Petersburg.
Not very long ago a German organist who went lo St. Petersburg to live
bad (here an experience wllh n new
cap lliat for u time almost nuido him
believe, in the magic ot the Teutonic
fairy tales.
The organist bought the cap during
bis Ilrst day at Ibe Russian capital mill
wore it lhe next dny when he went out
for a walk. On his return lo bis lodgings he wus amazed lo Und I wo gold
purses lu his pocket, one of which contained a sum equivalent lo $50.
The next day, afler Ills usual walk,
lie found four purses 111 bis outside
pocket, a Ond lhat caused lilm lo doubt
bis senses. A third day, wilh u similar profitable result, sent lilm to the
chief of police (o tell his story.
Tlio authorities delniled n detective
lo go wilh the Germtiu (o Ibe lailor
who made (he cap. Investigation disclosed the fnct that It bad been constructed ot uu odd piece ot F.ugllsh
tlolli brought in by a stranger, from
It tbe lailor had uiade nflecu Identical
cups to order. Having n bit left, he
lindconslrucled n sixteenth cap, which
was the ono sold lo the oi'gunlst.
Tlio deteotlvo then followed Ihe organist through tho streets of Ibe city,
wben Ihe mystery was solved. The
cap. It appears, was lhe emblem of a
gang of pickpockets working co-operatively. Tbe ono who secured u purse
dropped it Inlo the pocket of the lirst
confederale he suw. The cap had idem

Up to the present the production ol
Canadian books has been low. The

good in its way, but has ultertoi motives. The embryo novel is ta of Canada arc all consumed by the foldei

Mr. Brophy ostlmntod that you imd several million tons of coul.
Your directors encouraged by the favorable Bhowlng demonstrated by the
work done niiule application for all the available land adjoining. Tho application has been accepted by the government for coul rights over five
sections, the moHt valuable of which it is proposed to retain lor future development, according to the mining expert's estimate ol several millions of
tons on the area you owned at that time, that and the additional area acquired should produce enough coal lor continuous operations lor many
This mine is only 172 miles from Spokane, nearer than any other operating coal mine, and Spokane is the blggCBt coal market, in the north-west
The present cost of frolght is $2.50 por ton. The Kettle Valley railway now
in course of construction will shorten the haul and as competitive railroads pass near the mine a reduction in freight may be expected. Wc will
allow a generous price for mining, say $1.50 Iretgbt at $2.50 anil duty por
Ioiik ton at .50—total $4.50
We can deliver domestic coal In Spokane and allow the retailer $1.00
per ton, and make $3.00 per ton profit for the Mining Compnny, and I
sell coal nt lees thnn the prevailing prices, which are from $9.00 to $10.0(1
"per ton. Presuming that the Company produces  the moderate amount of 500
tons per day, at $8.oo profit it would pay 60 per cent on the capitalization of $1,000,000.00
Shareholders who tirHt bought the shares of the Company at a low
price in a sense were gambling with clumees like most mining concerns lu
embryo, but. it is no longer n matter of a gamble, your contributions liavo
provided funds to prove It ulmost without a shadow of doubt a great coir
mcrclal success, that on n conservative estimate may more than equal
the records of the Fernie and Dunsrriuir mines, which earned
the first investors many millions of dollars, and for the following reasons you may expect even greater results:—
1. The enormous body oi eoal is proven by the eltnttince of
the ninny veins. i
2. The transportation facilities, the coal being clos* to two
3. The contiguity to great consuming; centres with
no other producing mines within hundreds of
miles. For instance, B.C. Copper Smelter, Greenwood. B.C., 10 miles; Granby Smelter, Grand
Forks, B.C., 32 miles; Consolidated Smelting Co.,
Trail, B.C., 118 miles; City of Nelson, 126 miles;,
Rossland, 130 miles; Phoenix. 37 miles; Spokane
172 miles; and many more towns it B.C.; Washington and Idaho within a radius of 150 miles.

Mosquitoes iu the icebound northern country are a plague beyond relief. Tbey come to life nbout, the
middle of May, before tho ground is
thawed out and while many feet of
ice ctill covers ihe lakes and all but
the swiftest rivers. Stagnant, sun*
heated water is not in the least necessary. Tbey breed in tho glaciers
wherever .i bit. of earth or manure
baa melted a little pool. Tbeir I

comfortablo to sleep without proteeJ
lection, and from that time on until |
September, when tbo 'flrst frosts
lm\e benumbed them, especially during tho warm, rainy season of July
and August, they become a never-
ceasing sourge, owarming in thousands. Tbo Alaskan mosqultlo is

spot to tasle, but, naya a sufferer,
comes in u bee-line wilh his probe
and gets In to action. Kvery Inch of
your clothing Ih industriously bored,
so that ynu look like an animated

eat up your profits
.Whether tliry represent actual cash outlay, or
only the time of yourself and your help, repairs
are waste just the .snme. When you make an
Improvement—no matter how small its cost may,,
be—let. it be permanent. Then it is a real investment, something on which you can realize in cash should you decide to
sell your property; aud something that will pay you constant
dividends in convenience, sightliness and comfort as long aa
the farm remains your own.
Concrete Improvements Are Permanent
They last as long as the very hills themselves. They do not
require experts to build them. Their first cost, in most cases,
is no more than for inferior materials.

Create Prince of Ireland
Dublin, June 3.—Dublin hopes soon
to welcome the young Prince ot
Wales. It is expected that his
younger brother will come with him
and thereby bangs a tale which is
tearing Irish society into shreds. It
is understood thnt King (leorge ib
discussing with the members of the
cabinet the question whether it would
not be well to revive interest in the
dynasty by creating a prince of Ireland, the title to be borne by the
second son of ench succeeding mon j
arch and to be held by such son af- ]
ter a change of reign until the next
in line attain a certain age.
The idea is to signali/e the passing
of the home rule bill and the giving
of royal assent by some act which I
shall show the personal interest of j
tbe sovereign in bis Irish sutijects, 1
and bring the court at Oorv HIU up
ta ii standard of real royalty.
The Welsh got tbeir own special]
prince as n sop for tbe extinction of i
Owen Glendower. It was England's!
principal pledge of pence between the]
Hill Celts of Wales and border war-:
riors. It proved a moat excellent
bargain and no title in the roll of.
British nobility blazons with more
brilliant associations than those of
"Ich dien" (I serve), the motto
plucked by the warlike lOdwurd with
the three plumes snatched from his
Poitiers captive, John, the blind
king of Bohemia.
If the ideg is curried out is hardly lively to please everybody. The
vice regal dignity would, of course, be
In some degree lessened und to that
extent removed from the anihitionsof
many noble peer umi peeress and it
would he a Iohs bard to hear, particularly now when thu new Dublin is
attracting so many high, when tho
Irish Lord lieutenant ami his lady
will he poople of the most potential
importance if the offices are not abolished. So society among the "ellgl-
bles" is hostile to the proposition.
while many of the lesser nobility and
commoners are delighted with it.
Both sides hnve to be considered.
lt is not too lute to begin keeping
account ot tlic eggs sold from the
fnrm Hock during the coming season
It Is a sate guess that such un uc-
catint will surprize those who have
never tried it, It faithfully kept
throughout tho year, lit must be remembered, though that our present
method of marketing eggs is nbout
lu lino with bringing butter to the
store   to exchunge lor groceries.
The whito dlurrlmeu, tlmt causes
much mortality among Chickens, can
be largely avoided if tbe incubators
and brooders nre thoroughly disinfected. This muy be done by placing
BOtflO sulphur in u shallow dish and
'putting a mutch to it, afterwards o-
poning the doors to allow  of airing.
To raise healthy chicks mix one-
third grit hy weight in their food
the Ilrst three days; from then until
the fourteenth dny, one-sixth weight.
Gradually decrease the amount in
food, ami be mire to keep {'(instantly
before thm-i. (Irlt should not be too
That poultry parasites tend O In
crease and multiply with remarkable
rapidity at this season of the ytar
Is a fact that poultry keopnrs often
tall to realize until the effects of infestation make a aoticable difference
In the appearance and condition of
the fowls. Young chickens and turkeys are very liable to the Utir-k of
\ those pests, owing to tbe neglect ol
sitting hens, their nests, houses, and
surroundings generally, and where
preventive measures hnve not been
taken or have proved Ineffectual,
examination and treatment should
immediately follow suggestive signs
of distress. According to correspondence, loss of feathers appears to he
very prevelent just now among
the older birds, and as this ls commonly due to the plucking and eating)
Of feathers ns a result of tbe presence,
of mites at the roots of the quills,
special attention should be given to
cleansing operations, tbe provision of
suitable dry dusting material, and
the frequent use ot fresh pyrcthrum
powder or flowers ot sulphur.
Colds and roup are often prevalent
and while thoy do not appear to be
contagious, thoy nre none the less so
and should be remedied before they
carry their ravages through tho entire dock.
The question naturally arises: "Are
the sick birds worth doctoring—if
tbey are, what is the remedy""' As
to whether tliey are worth treating
depends on the bird. Thore nre sick
birds thnt should be killed at once
and burned. Again there ure others
that arc worth saving. If they are
to be saved, however, they must receive immediate and effective treatment, The following simple remedy
will prove entirely sufficient in a
large per cent, of the cases where thu
trouble is a cold or the initial stages
of roup.
Prepare a solution of li per cent.
permanganate of potash, by dissolving 2 ounces of the permanganate
crystals thought nt any drug store at
about 3'l cents per pound) in Si qiiai't-
of water. Keep this solution always
on hand, and when n bird shows the
lirst signs of nose or throat trouble,
take enough of the solution to allow
the head of tbe bird to be submerged
and put the sick bird's head under It
until it nearly chokcB. Remove the
bird's head from the liquid nnd allow
It to sneeze and sputter, forcing tbe
liquid into nil the nlr passages. Repeat this three times before you let
the bird go, nnd repent it twice a day
until the bird no longer shows signs
of the disease. The operation is simple nnd easily done, and in the majority of cases sufficient, potassium
permanganate Is an excellent disinfectant and can be given to the birds to
drink with the result, that mnny other
cases can be warded off. Wben given
in the wnter, only enough should he
placed in tbe drinking water to give
it n claret color. Tbe birds can be
given water thus treated for three or
four days at a time. No other water
should be placed where tbe birds can
get it, otherwise thoy will prefer tbe
un treated wnter to that containing
the drug.
This treatment will not remove the
flrst cause of colds and roup. This
must be bourne in mind, lit will not
offset the bad effects of drafts, overcrowding and bad ventilation, those
factors that cause so much of the
poultrymun's troubles. Prevention is
always better than cure, und the u-
liove treatment is only tbe supple
ment to tbe proper housing of poultry. A sick hen will not lay, even
though she Is only n little sick.
Nell her will she Iny ns noon as she
gets well, in fact she may never
be a profitable bird for brooding
purposes. It pays therefore to first
prevent the flrst cause of sickness
und secondly to take proper care of
th© birds  after tbey   hnve  recovered
