CKANBROOK, B.C , SATURDAY MORNING, MARCH 23rd 1912
No: It
Poultry Keeping
One of the Growing Industries
of the District
Cranbrook Especially Interested in Advice Given
It seems a little curious thnt it Is
so hard to get st*!ctly Irosh eggs
even during the months of Soptombcr
October and November. Remember I
say strictly fresh eggs. It Ib not bo
difficult to get eggs In' those months,
especially the drat two named. But
so many grocers complain shout the
difficulty of getting all fresh ones.
For Instance a farmer will bring ln
twenty, thirty or forty dozen ns the
case may be, but a large percentage
will be had or stale yolks settled to
ooe aide, or, whnt Is nearly as bad,
the shells will he dirty and have a
greasy appearance.
The writer hns heen asked vory often by grocormcn to let them have his
eggs, in fact, any one ol them would
be glad to take all he has, but I
have preferred to sell to private customers. At least It Ib this way; I
started to sell to private customers,
expecting each year to have more
than I would need and the overplus I
would sell to storekeepers, hut each
year the private customers would Increase, so that so far I have none
for the grocors. I hnve found that
there Is scarcely nny limit to the
demand for strictly fresh eggs, especially If tbey nre clean and well graded. A basket of all hrown or all
white eggs looks much nicer than a
basket 0f mixed colors.
EGOS OF A SIZE TOGETHER
Pullets nearly always lay a smaller
egg thnn a hen. How much smaller
the pullets' egg looks when placed beside a large hen egg! Therefore keep
all the smaller slued eggs hy themselves, and the larger once by themselves. I hnve never yet seen a customer complain when the eggs were
nearly all of n size. But some will
complain at once of the smaller ones
when they see them lying beside the
larger ones.
And why should we ask anyone to
take dirty eggs anv more than dirty
meat or dirty fruit? Of course the
shells ore not used, nnd wc might
argue that the dirt Is only un t'.it
shell. But appearances. I was going
to say, are everything, hut I will sfty
appearances go a lone wny ln creating a demand for anything, and Just
add quality to appearance, and you
have a demand at once, as well ns
better prices and general satisfaction.
I had a very good Illustration of
this last fall. Potatoes that were
coming Into the city were small and
not very Inviting. T took n few bugs
to a store keeper thnt wero clean,
large and One looking ones, and at
once he offered me two dollars for
all that I would bring ln. Needless
to say I took In quite a number of
bogs at that price. Another storekeeper seeing them, came out to my
place and wanted a lot at the same
price.
CREATING A DEMAND.
It ls the same with eggs, fruit,
vegetables or any other commodity.
Have the quality good and the appearance the very best you can mako
them, and they will create a demand
for themsolves. How mnny times
have I heard a person exclaim: "My
what lovely eggs! How much n dozen? State your price. Bring me two
three or more dozen a week." A new
customer bemuse the eggs were clean
and fresh looking and graded. Why
should a farmer have dirty or stale
eggs? Hurely overy farmer hns plenty of straw around, so thnt there Ib
no excuse fnr them having dirty nests
Hut how do wo find it? I declare
this to be a 'sot, so far as my observation goes, In visiting among the
farmers,, thnt not more    thnn   ono
out of ten keeps either the poultry
house or the nests clean. I have
actually soon hens laying ln nests
that were half full of droppings and
not a straw ln the nests, yet there
was plenty of straw around the barnyard. But no one seemed to care
enough for Biddy to give hor a little
straw of which to make a nest. Ts
there any wonder that they steal
their nests away anywhere where they
can get a decent, place to deposit
precious fruit.
KEKP POULTRY PEN CLEAN.
I was visiting a farmer not long
ago, and he had a beautiful barn,
with cement tloors tbrougb the whole
barn, cow stables, horse stables, alley-ways—cement floors all over. The
cow stablos, horse stables, and even
the pig pens were all whitewashed;
overhead and down the sides, the
stalls, In fnct everything except tbe
floors, were given a coat of whitewash. And, as I always do, I asked
tho privilege to see the poultry apart-
tments. He had quite a large flock
of White Leghorns running around
the barnyard. Well, now, what do
you think I saw? There waa a "ell
built poultry house, in whlcb the
poultry migbt have been as comfortable as one could wish. But. Oh,
what a sight! The litter on tbe floor
seemed as though lt might have been
there for years, the nests as dirty;
the droppings ot a whole year, I
should judge, were under the roosts,
and not one bit of whitewash or any
other kind of a wash had ever been
on nny Part of the Interior of th»t
house.
Now, that farmers may sell fresh
eggs, but I am very certain that he
can't sell clean ones. Just think of
a hen laying a beautiful clean white
egg In such a foul filthy nest. And
yet that ts Just what tbey ore doing,
for 1 saw some on the nests with
eggs tn them, but dear me, I wouldnt
like to eat them even it was only oo
the shell. Well, I am glad to say
that all tanners nre not thnt way. A
large (and I believe the number ore
increasing) number ol farmers are
giving as good quarters and as good
care-to their poultry as to any other
stock on the farm. And why should
they not have as good core? For
they pay as well as aoy other farm
stock for their care and keep.
SOME GOOD  RULES.
Below I give a few rules which, If
observed, I believe will materially affect the numbor of undesirable eggs
coming into the city markets:—-
(1) Change nil nesting material at
least once a month.
(2) Keep fresh litter, dry litter on
poultry house floor at all times.
(31 Never let hens run ont in wet,
muddy yards. It does them no good,
and continues to make both hens and
yards more filthy.
(4) Never leave eggs In nest longer
than one day. Never let them stay
In neBt over night.
(6) Wipe oil with wot clot* all eggs
that may got soiled as soon as gathered. Remember, a washed egg never
looks as nice as one that doesn't
need washing.
(6) Novcr sell eggs from a stolen
nest, or nny eggn that you don't
know how long It Is since they have
heen laid.
(7) Never keep eggs longer than one
week before Inking to market. Better
take them twice a week If possible
(8) Have nil the eggs In basket as
nearly as possible the same size nnd
color.
C. P. R. Fire
What might have been a serious
Are occurred on Friday night when
the 0. P. 11., hoarding house , Just
across tho track from the depot, was
almost completely destroyed.
The first alarm, which called out
ths railway brlgads was sounded at
II p. m. Tho fire originated from
an over-heated range, and got a good
headway, burning between walls and
floors when the railway firemen
reached the scene. Alter working for
over an hour, the fire was beyond
their control, nnd an alarm was turn,
sd In for assistance from the City
department which responded promptly, and soon had two lines of hose
laid, the flames wns soon extinguished, hut nothing remains of the bull-
ding hut the standing walls.
It seems strange, that aa soon as
ths Are was discovered, that nn
alarm was not sent in to tho city;
and the, assistance of experienced firefighters secured, which later had to
dots, There Is nn doubt, hut, If this
had Iswn done promptly the building
could have saved with hut tittle loss
to the company. The City authorities
are willing at all times to render nil
necessary assistance to ths railway
company, and ths fact that the
building waa on tho other side of the
track, lust outside of ths corporative
limits of the city, is no excuse fnr
not turning In the necessary call for
tho city department. Some eighteen
men woro sleeping In the building,
who fortunately escaped. With ti
strong wind blowing from the wost,
tho trestle, coal bins, nnd a numlier
of othor buildings might have been In
dnnger
The C. P. R„ should make some ar-
rsngomonts with tho city to provide
for Just anch emergencies arising
from fires that can easily lie reached
by the city fire department, and ample water from the city water supply

Fifty Acre Tract of Alfalfa grown on St. Mary's Prairie, adjoining
Cranbrook, Last Year.
Industrial Activity at Bull River
The big dam at Bull River, now
under construction for the 0. P. R.
is rapidly approaching completion.
Bull River ls a tributary of the
Kootenay River, and extends
north easterly through a large block
of laad acquired by the C.P.R, as a
portion of the British Columbia South
era land grant. At tho present time
four large logging camps are established on Bull River, employing some
five hundred men, who are busily engaged in getting out ties. At a
point about six miles from Its confluence with the Kootenay, ts where
the big dam is being constructed.
The dam will be a little over three
hundred feet in length, twenty-five
feet In width at bottom, narrowing
IS feet at top. It will have a height
of 16 feet from the bed of the river,
which was   excavated to a depth   of
11 feet to bedrock. Tbe dam ls being
constructed of concrete. When filled,
the, water will cover an area of about
70 acres, with a varying depth of
from 10 to 25 feet according to tbo
contour of the water covered area.
The John Gait Engineering Co., ot
Toronto haa the contract ol its construction, and expect to have it completed in about two weeks. It will
cost in the neighborhood of (30,000.
The C. P. R. are also building a
large sawmill on Bull River, which
will have a capacity of about 100,000
feet dally.
The company '..ivo a'so laid out a
townsite on a tract of prairie land
on Bull River near ita mouth, just, lie-
low where the old international
trunk road crosses the Bull river.
A number of stores, houses and warehouses have been erected, and it is
reported that a contract has been let
ror the construction of a large modem hotel, by Mr. James Bates of
Cranbrook.
BULL RIVER POWKR COMPANY.
At a point, up the river, twQ miles
from the C.P.R. plant, tbe Bull River Power company hnve constructed
a dam for power purposes. This
dam has a length of four hundred
feet, wltb an elevation of about ten
feet. A flume of a mllo and three-
quarters In length, 10 feet In width,
and six feet In depth has been con
structed, and contracts let for tbe
building of a power house, and the
Installing of turlil-.es, and dynamos,
capable of generating 12,000 horse
power. This company will supply
electrical power to towns In the
Crow's Nest Pass as far east as Hos-
mer, and west to Cranbrook, Moyle,
nnd Fort Steele.
Cranbrook   on   the   Move
A Publicity Man Wanted
We bars Just received a communication giving us a few of tha details
that are being published In a book
that ls being got out by the Smith's
Advertising Agency, of London, England, ln which the interests of tbls
district will be especially treated. In
the article mentioned attention is
particularly drawn to the fine soil
we have in the Oranbrook district
that could easily be devoted to raising the best of fruits and small garden produce; drawing attention at tbe
same time to the advantages that
would be accrued to nny Arm wbo
wanted to use Cranhrook as a centre
snd distributing point for the whole
nf the Kootenays.
If the C.P.R. was properly approached there Is nn reason to doubt
but what they would glvo exceptional advantages to any Industry that
came to the city. Thie Is a good opportunity for parties interested to
get to work and use their pernuatton
with the authorities to get a move
oa and get busy looking after these
things.
Various parties are interesting

Home Circle at Evening Tide
Thoughts from the Editorial Pen
No matter how your mothers may
speak, their hearts are in the right
place; if their attire is old-fashioned
and tbeir manners not up to the
frills of the twentieth century standard, they have hart experience of
more value than all the schooling and
extra accomplishments that you may
think of shining excellence. Heed you
mother—you will never regret it.
• •   •   •
It is the mother of a household
whose life Is chiefly threatened by
monotony, rthe stays at home, she
ia always in the house seeing the
same things, hearing the same voices
doing the same work day after day,
with endless regularity. The demands
upon her time and strength and love
and patience are increasing And the
wonder is that she does not break
down more frequently than is actually the case.
• •   •   •
Girls and boys listen to your mother
they are your wisest teacherB, your
beat councilors, e'en though you have
received a college education and the
dear one who in all probability hns
denied herself to give it to you hns
never g*ono beyoimd the third reader,
you can rest assured that it is not
book learning tbat will keep your
feet away from the many pitfalls that
she can warn you from in tender,
loving fashion that you will do well
to heed.
• •   •   •
One reason why some men do not
get along better In this world is) he
cause they have not tbo proper stimulant in the homes. Their homes
lack those little touches of refinement
which brings the best out of them.
Neatness and taste are posnihle in
the poorest homes. l>t a woman
make the atmosphere as dainty as
her means allow, and she will raise
her husband to the same standard.
And as she elevated him the effort i^
felt upon herself, her children, ber
home, and her future.
■   •   •   •
When you want to got your grand
est Idea of a queen, you do not think
of Catherine of Russia, or of Annie
of Rnglftfid, nr Marie Theresa of Gor*
many, but when you want to get
your grandest idea of a queen you
think of the plain woman who sal
opposite your father at the tabb* oi
walked with him arm in arm down
life's pathway, sometimes tu tin
Thanksgiving bfinr]uet, sometimes te
tbe grave, hut always together-
soothing your potty griefs, eorrectlni
your rbfMish waywardness, joining
in your infantile sports, listening tr
your evening prayer, fnilini' fnr yoi'
with neertle nr »t tbe spinning wheel
and on mid nights wrapping you u|
snug and warm '* Mother1 Mother."
Ah, she is a <iueen.

Many women are martyrs, nnd yet
they rto not know it. They shut the
sunshine out of tbeir houses and
their heartn. thpy wear veils, they
carry parasols, tbey no all possible
to keep of! the subtlest and yet most
potent Influence which la intended tr
give them strength, beauty and cheerfulness.

Do not distrust your friend, foil
may not always understand his ac
tions and consequently you may not
interpret them aright. If he is Impulsive he may not always act in accordance with your Ideas, he will
make mistakes and perhnps stumble
by the wayside Rut if he Is your
friend stand dp for him and believe
In bis goodnesH and virtue and his
desire for your welfare. Remember
tbat you cannot see his heart and
there Is more of nohllltv and good*
nets than appears on the surface
Vou cannot afford to dlfltrtlBt blm,
for real friendship Is rare. On not
hold yourself aloof from him Uut encourage hirn bv counsel, prcept and
example. Help him If he Is weak,ami
encourage him if be falters. His
heart will go out In gratitude, and
you both will bave made the world
better.
If all tbe members of a, family »'e.re
as courteous and kind to each other
as tliey are to strangers, what a dif"
erence it would make in the home
atmosphere.
We     never knew  a  man  who    was
faithful  to his     early and    adoptei
home who was given o^er at the dame
time tu any gross form of wickednt'sd
If you tind more     enjoyment In    the
rlubroom. in the literary society,   in
the art saloon, tban you do in these
unpretending home pleasures, you are
o-n the road to ruin.

All the elegance in the world will
not make a home, and a spoonful of
love exceeds whole shiploads of furniture and all the gorgeouaness the
world can gather.

The publisher of a paper must live
as well as the clothier, the dry goods
man or the grocer. To get the wherewith to live he has one thing to sell
and another to rent. He sells his
paper and he rents the space ia bis
columns, these are his principal
sources of income and can any one
nlorm us why he is expected to give
either away? He can, of course, do
so if he chooses and as a matter of
fact he does furnish a good deal of
his space rent free. Hut it docs not
follow that be ought to be expected
to do so as a matter of course, and
further, when once he does it ought
to be recognized as a contribution just
as much as the coffee or sugar given
by the grocer. Uut it Ib not generally looked at In that light, yet everybody knows that the very existence
of a newspaper depends upon the selling of tbe paper and the rent ot the
space as much as the merchants success depends upon the sale of his
goods. There is just as much reason for tbo merchant giving bis goods
away free as there Is for tbe publisher.

Tbe Farmers institute held their
regular monthly meeting, on Wedncs
day night in the government build
ing. Mr. T. S. Gill, In tbe absence of
tbe president occupied the chair.
There was a large attend, tine.
The delegate to Victoria gave n:i interesting account of his trip to the
Central Convention. Mr. J. Levett,
submitted a very interesting paper on
potatoe growing. A very enjoyable
meeting was spent. Papers .A a very
interesting nature will be read at tin-
next meeting of which duo notice
will be given. Following is tbe paper presented by Mr. Levett
Mr. Chairman, anil Gentlemen
In reply to your request regarding
a paper on the growing of potatoes
and garden work in general, would
say. as 1 am nut a professional gar
doner, all I can do is to glVO vou tin
methods that I have employed and
found to be fairly -.atisfactory Sow
then, one of tbe most Important
things to be considered is the plough
ing of the land in the fall, tbe earlier the better as it permits of cultivation of tbe soil, so ns to encourage
all weeds to grow that they may be
killed befort* winter, which otherwise
would lay in tbe ground to moke
trouble the following season; of
course land that is ploughed late in
the fall should lay In its rough state
?;o as to permit the weathering and
the action of the frost to penetrate
as deeply as possible, it also turns
j up lots of Insects to In* killed, and
ht leaves the land in such a condition
i that it is ahle to conserve all the
! snow and ram that falls, which oth
. erwise would run of! into the creeks
I and be lost. There are many of us
i that do not attach sufficient importance to this matter of fall ploughing and cultivating at? there is uo
| tbe
! other way that wc can conserve the
moisture snd get the land In that
state of tilth whu-h io so necessarj
I for all growing plants. aud at odd
times one runs across land that is tn
dined to run together, ur puddle A.<
farmers call it; of course that is bet
ter left till spring before plo'JgUini*,
but that kind of land is not vei>
common. Now the next thint: and
not nf less importance is the selec
tion of seed, as this means all tbe
inference between success and failure.
N'ow there is only one place to do
this and that'is in tbe field when digging the Potatoes in the fall, always
select those hills that yield the most
of the smooth and uniform in type,
which is ao desirable in the potatoe.
If this method was put into practice
in selecting seed, we would not hear
so much about potatoes running out.
But the way it is with most people
they seem to think that any old
thing is good enough for seed, which
is a big mistake and en Is in disappointment but on the other hand if
one plants the best that can be obtained he certainly will stand a better chance than the man that sows in
a haphazard wny, and be well paid
for the extra trouble in keeping tbe
seed separate. This is like every
other branch of farming the selection
of seed is of the greatest importance,
and which go hand In hand with sue-
<?
COBBful    (firming       Another    thing    I
always rto, that is,  I bring the seed
out of    the cellar about three weeks
before planting time flnd Bpread them
out on a barn     floor or some   other
suitable place so as to expoBe them
to the light,     this    induces them to
send out a good tough healthy sprout
which is not   easily  broken off,  this
also shows you which will aprout and
which    wont.    As  1 don't believe    lu
planting anything that does not show
signs of n good sprout which is nearly always the cause of so many miss
plants.   Of course whero one is planting a bid acreage this might not   be i
practicable but   where   one has   the j
Moor space    it  pays     for   the   extra
trouble.    Now next    comes     planting1
time    l like to lay oil tho land with
the    plough,      with  rows   three    font
apart   nud as   soon as     ready com j
mence l > cutting the seed and getting :
'hem  in as  quickly  as  possible,    us  1
believe the   sooner they are   covered,
up after being cut In half, or if large.
It  may  make four  good  sets, planted
about eighteen  inches apart  In    the
is a co.*,i distance; us 1 don't think
think there  is anything  gained     by
planting to   eloso; and four   or Ave
Inches deep; and don't forget to barrow  the ground two or three   times j
at intervals,    before   tho     potatoes
come up as tbls keeps all weeds    in
chock,  and also    loosens the    surface1
which is so necessary for tho young ■
plants    As soon as tbe rows can be
seen ttic cultivator should be started.
and kept  up    about every  week     n\\ \
through the  growing  season,  or    as
long as convenient  or necessary,    A
farmers profits are gaged   according
to the amount of work be puts on his j
'and, that is applied with intelligence
as there is no plant that seems to re- I
spond to good cultivation more than
the potatoe      Now, a  few words in'
regard to the proper tools may   not
on e amiss, na this all tends to make '
arit ii   \x field work a pleasure. Take
tbe PUnet, .)   u. or [ron-ago seeders
and cultivators combined, with which
one man   can do     more  and   better
work m one day than can he done in ■
five or six days   without such a ma- 1
bin.1, an.l it is surprising to see how
many people there are who still use
nothing but the      o'd  common    hoe,
which was nil right     when we could [ —
get nothing better but now we have'
no excuse as good improved hoes nnd
cultivators     are    easily    obtainable i ■ •
through     our    hardware    merchants, ■ ( (
which  will  more than    pay the cost
*he first season, the main thing is to
have the Innd in good shape tor   the IJ [
seeder as this is     necessary In order', ,
to make a good job, and to have the i« ■
rows po they can he cultivated.   Say IJ J
for onions nnd   carrots about 16 Inches is a good distance to have them,
this allows pretty good room to use
the machine.     The old habit of letting the weeds    take possession,    as
many do, is poor business, at*' it takes
as much    moisture and fertility     to
grow weeds as it does useful plants.
So it is easily seen if we want to get I
full returns   from our soli    we must]
use  tho  cultivator  frequently,   which'
is the secret in successful farming
Yours truly,
JOHN  LBVKTT.

[ When we complacently term our
I selves critics, do we stop to think
] what the essential qualities of a cr,t"
j 1c are? Are we skilled in Judging

j who poses as a critic, or reviewer oi
(literature, should he ft judge of mat*
j ten. relating to taste and beauty;
one who Is able to scrutinize fairly
] any production; one apt to judge
mt-rits as well as to detect faults.
Criticism is mi art founded wholly ou
experience and observation. I notice
that some editors by their reviews,
etc., seem to think that it lies in
flattery or undue severity. It is the
happy medium, namely: "fnirness and
truth". It cannot be denied thut we
are all, more or leu*;, susceptible to
flattery; it dons not do us-.one hit of
good, mentally or physlcnlly yet our
vanity Is nourished, and wo generally consider the flatterer our friend.
A critic ought not to condescend to
flattery; and on the oilier hand, ho
should not make it his business to
i)ick out a few slight errors and hold
thom up to ridicule. I thoroughly believe n vast amount of deserving MS
y. And n resting place in the waste-
paper basket owing to hasty reading,
consequent on prejudice against the
writer. A benulne critic, however, to
be qualified for his difficult qvocation
ahould possess sound judgment dU

Master Francis Sawyer, who felt u
victim to fever some weeks ago Is
now convalescent.
Master Morvin Folsey, who has
been suffering from a fractured leg,
was able to be out last week.
St. Patrick's Day waa duly observed here on the 17th, tho wearing of
the green being prominent.
As to the origin of the Irish Saint
there are different theories and   old
legends   which came Into   my hands
some time ago will explain.
St. Patrick, they say:
Came up sweet Bantry hay,
Riding cross-legged on the back of a
whale,
Which gave him a bob
Into Ballydehole,
Saying: "Phadrlg your welcome to
green InnlsfaM
The chief feature ot the Saints life
however, was to banish the snnk is
and vermin out of Ireland, which he
seemingly managed to accomplish.
Long may the Thistle, Rose and
Shamrock entwine with the Maple
Leaf.
Busy times in Klko, no less than
ten good men and true stood watching tbe coupling up of an extra
horse to a sleigh the other day.   It
seemingly afforded thom much amus-
oment. Well, they hnd tbe time to
spare,  "How's business? Diisk!"
Tho veterinary doctor who examined the milk cows in the district Inst
week, proclaimed tbem the best In
tbe ('row's Nest Pass.
Mr. I.cilley who nctod us clerk at
tho North Star Mill lor some considerable time, Is now settled us accountant nt Jewells  Mill JuHrny.
The writer hnd the honor of driving tbo Hon. W. II. Moss through the
iciko, Gateway, ami Jaffray districts
on Monday Inst; besides being a good
all-round politician, Mr, Ross Is a
genuine good fellow, no fnlsc pride,
and a splendid driving companion.
Oood luck to him.
The othor week the weather was so
gonial thnt 1 was writing ol spring.
Nnw I spring in doors from the bowling, biting blasts. This Is the Inst
storm now, so they sny, but we have
had four last's now.
As I write these notes I listen to
the melodious Scotch, Irish, English,
and Canadian airs, whidi l»l„--. I so
sweetly together, and would you he
lieve it, 1 was tempted to throw oil
my boots and dance the "Highland
Fling", and the misses nearly Hung
mo out. One simply cannot Bit still
when "Scottie McBrogor" handles

The following lines are very appro- j
prlate to several couples in Rlko nt
present:
Never wedding, ever  wooing.
Still a love-lorn heart pursuing:
Road yon not the wrong youre doing
In my cheeks pnle hue?
Ali my life with sorrow Btrewlng—
Wed, or cease to woo.
