May 18th In History
1900.—Mnfeking is an insignificant
village in Rhodesia almost on tbe
western boundry of the Transvaal.
Its fame, which was great [or u few
months, has gone into history simply
and solely because of the siege It
stood successfully for seven months
during the South African War. This
is the date of the raising ot the siege,
which hnd commenced on the eleventh
of the previous October. When war
wus declared by the Transvaal a-
gainst Oreat Britain General Cronje
was In command of tbe Boer forces
on the western boundry to the niim
ber of six thousand. With a view to
lessening the number of British troop
by taking them prisoners he laid
siege to bothMnfeking and Klmherley
with the uneipected result that he
found his own forces held up by the
successful resistance of the besieged
under the resource command of Gen
eral Baden-Powell at Mafeking mid ol
Col. Kekewich at Kiniberley. The
Importance of this hold up is seen
when one rernlls the fact that Gen
eral Methiien, commander of the Bri
tlsh relieving force, fought the but
ties of Mndder River and Mngersfon
teln tile in November and early in
December ol lS'J'J General Cronje
raised the siege of Klmherley at the
middle of February on the approach
of Lord Roberts' army, only to be
overtaken nnd forced to surrender n
few dnys later at Paurilehurg. The
siege of Mafeking wns ruined by Col.

a Conservative will he nominated,
and the Candidate will be Robert
Francis Green of Kaslo,-
Mr. Green is well known in this pro
vincc, especially in the Kootenays.
He has represented Kaslo riding in
the Provincial House several terms,
and will be a credit to Ills const.itu
ency if elected for the Dominion.
A large number of Crnnhrook citizens signed his nomination papers In
this city on Wednesday.
At a meeting of the Crnnbrook Ub-
r-rul Association held in Clnpp's Hall
on Tuesday evening, it was decided
not to contest the Kootenay Bye-
clectlon; consequently they could elect
no member for the seat in the Domin
ion House made vacant by the resignation of A. S. Goodeve.
A Good Wager
John Pollack of Fernle, nnd Otto
Myers of Michel are now engaged In
trying to settle the question of good
roads in Kootenay.
Mr. Myers wagers $.100.00 that he
can drive from Fernle to Hpoknne In
125 hours.
Mr. Myers, nccompgnled hy Mr. C.
Whllnn of Kernie, referee, arrived at
Cranbrook on Tuesday evening, covering the distance between these cities
in less than ten hours. Tbey left, on
Wednesday morning at 6:1)0 a.m., expecting to reach Klngsgnte In about
ten hours.
The distance between Hpoknne nnd
Fernle is estimated at about 280
miles, nnd the party will have to travel at a rate of 50 to 00 miles dally.
The roads lu Rust Kootenay, with
the possible exception of that portion
between Ryan and Ynhk, Is reported
to be In fairly good condition nnd
bnrlng n breakdown, the journey
will be nccnmpllshed well within the
time limit.
Fatal Accident
At about 8 p.m. on Thursday morning, while assisting to unload a carload of logs at the Standard Mill,
Wm. -Ciilbain wns instantly killed.
The car on which the logs were load
cd had heen run to the mill pond and
the necessary preparations made, the
jerk hook was In position, and the deceased was walking to the end of the
car, when he fell; it is supposed that
he pulled the jerk line, letting tbe
logsdown on top of him. He was instantly killed, his body being carried
nto the pond with the logs. The de
ceased was about 44 years of age. An
inquiry was made by Dr. J. M. Bell,
who decided that an Inquest was unnecessary.
R. H. Taylor, superintendent at the
mill hod a very narrow escape from
being caught from the falling logs.
McBrlde to Visit Ottawa
"retnler McBrlde of B.C., who hus
been on nn extended trip to Great
Britain, will stop oft in Ottawa on
his way home for several days. While
in the capital he will discuss matters
of Interest to British Columbia, more
particularly the question of better financial terms which  the const  pro-
(nce has demanded.
The British Coltlmhin case is now
helng prepared and lt will be laid before Premier Borden and bis colleagues by Mr. McBrlde. A possible result of the conference may be the appointment of a royal commission to
inquire into nnd report on British
Columbia's claims.
Hope for Reclamation
The hope'that the Kootenay valley
flat lands will soon be reclaimed was
strengthened hy the visit of Chief Hy-
drographer Grey Donald to Creston.
For the pnst two days he has been
looking over the situation, going
from the mouth ot the Kootenay to
the International line. How soon reclamation may be commenced Mr.
Donald would not say, hut there is
reason to believe tbat several parties
of surveyors will be put to work nlong
the river soon. The hydrogrnpher
says that tbe tints can be reclaimed
at a small cost.
20,000 Men on Strike

Cranbrook District
The valley In whlrh la located the
■ity of Crnnbrook is destined, In the
iear future, to be of considerable hor
icultunil importance.
Probably no pnrt of Britluh Columbia is better adapted for fruits of all
tinds ih the greatest perfection, and
the question hns been asked. "Is not
fruit growing the most profitable in-
lustry for ranchers to turn their attention to"" This has been answered
ind demonstrated in  the affirmative.
Practically all the leading varieties
>f apples have proved surronsful in
the Cranbrook District.
Berries and small fruit do eitreme-
!y well, and this district gives pro-
nise of being the horticultural centre
'or those fruits most greatly in demand.
The Lacross Gamt
The first half of the game was slow
and showed a lack of practice on the
part of both teums. A Nelson man
was struck and hnd his ear split, necessitating an emergency call for a
physician. After 20 minutes play
Vlson scored, und one minute later
t'ranbrook scored.
In the second ball considerable Improvement was noticeable. It took
N'elson 12 minutes to score; Cranbrook immediately pulled together
.ind inside of the next 3 minutes equal
/•'d. At this stage of the game RK-
bnrn stepped on a rock and sprained
his ankle. Time wns called for the
application of Arnica and other liniments.
Tbe  score  u>>w   stood  Nelson  2  and
In tbe third quarter there was good
playing, with the advantage going to
Nolson who again scored in the next
10 minutes, following this with ■ a-
nother one two minutes later.
Manhart got a clip over tbe bead
and was laid out but waa able to resume piny.
The lust quarter was played rapidly and wan cliwely contested. No
Hcores were made. The game closing

The Anti-Fly Campaign
All over the En«t ol Canada and

campaign against the house liy. 1"
some parts ol the United States It lo
assuming very grotesque forms. We
commend the anti fly campaign to
the consideration ol the people ot
:'• tisl Columbia, but suggest that it
li |» directed against tne source
thi   pest.
It - better to prevent the breeding
: Hies than to try and kill them
when they are on the wing. One fre
■■cent and very dangerous scource ol
flies - the cans in which fruit or vegetable*: have been snld. V. these nre
thrown out without care being taken
see that they are clean, there Ie
always sure to be more or less of the
contents adhering to them. In this
dies are bred, or ut least they feed on
:t. and they are likely to carry away
from it germs of the most poisonous
Stables are nreedine places of flies.
and every person owning one should
see to it that it and its surroundings
are kept as clean as possible. There
should he no open receptacles of kitchen refuse. Tho common house-fly
is a sure indication that there is liltli
somewhere at hand. Professor Hodge
of the Clark University, siys:—-
The extermination of the fly as the
universal distributor of filth and disease, is ttie lirst step in the prcven
tlon of disease. We are living in
what is being called the age of good
health. We are in the dawning of
that ago nf good health and we shall
save in the coming years enormously
through  prevention of diseases.
Fly screens no more settle the (i'1Pt!
tlon for us than a mud hole does for
hogs. The hogs hide from the Hies in
the mud, but still the flies carry hog
cholera to the animals'food. We must
place to place. When your fly-trap If
filled, hold it under the hot water
faucet—and feed the Hies to tllfl flower bed or to the chickens.

.1. W, Collins, president, and D. O.
Dennis, engineer of construction of
the (Ireat Northern Construction Oo.
of New York city, a Arm which they
assert, hns carried out sewerage work
of the first magnitude there and in
other large American centres, arc
here for the purpose of laying a pro
position before the city council for
the installation of a complete new
high pressure sewerage system.
They assert that they can complot'
this work within the next »ix montb
by putting on an army of 25,0011 b
borers whom they would bring frop
Europe if necessary and who would
be controlled *n camps of military
pattern. ,
The system would have a pressure
of 1700 pounds per cubic inch am'
would   solve   for   all   time   Winnipeg *
sewerage problem. They exprosa then
selves willing to li nance the work,
which would run Into many millions

deemable after ten years.

which case the colonies will he in a
lositlon of being able to communicate
■heaply and directly with any coun-
ry with which they are doing business within a range of two or three
thousand miles. The erection of such
tations should within a very short
Lime enormously reduce the rates now
barged to many colonies for tele-
-raphic communication with other

Postmaster General Samuel, in submitting the postoffice budget in the
house of commons, London, England,
n Monday, snid: the questions of
compulsory wireless Installation on
hips und the conditions that should
e imposed for continuous service
vere matters that were engaging the
lose attention of the president of the
lOnrd of trade and himself. Probably
• hey would he considered at the inter-
tntionnl conference on wireless tele-
raphy in London next month.
Provisional arrangements, added
•Ir. Samuel, had heen made with the
Marconi Company for the erection
through the British empire of wire-
ess stations able to communicate
with each other at a distance of 2000
•idles or more. Six stations would
he erected at tirst. One would be in
England, probably the next two
would be located respectively in E-
gypt and British East Africa. There
would he another in India, another
in South Africa, and the Australian
government would erect one for itself
The cost in round figures, for each
station, excluding the sites of the
buildings, would be cco.noo ($800,000)
Mr. Samuel, referring to the growth of the postal business in London,
said the postoffice contemplated constructing its own tube railway, ran-
Ring east nnd weBt, for the convenience of mails and parcels. Mr. Samuel said a SO per cent reduction In tel
isphone charges between England and

C.P.R's New Financing
Apropos the rumors circulating In
Now York that, the O, P. R. is about
to issue new stock, the London Fiimn
Rial News states
"Notwithstanding tho fact that
■ inly two out of live instalments have
been pnld hy Canadian Pacific stock
holders on the $18,000,000 new stuck
offered at 160 In January, New York
■idvices Btnte that the inanageinenl is
working out plans for another stock
issue of larger amount. The director
It Is snid, have not dellnately fixed
the time for this offer, and therefore
there Is no use looking for official
confirmation yet. .Nevertheless, Canadian Pacific stockholders are warned
by American financial writers that
they may as well prepare to take ?4(>
000,000 to $50,000,000 of new stock,
or about ^0 per cent, of their present
holdings In the near future. This
presumption pre-supposos that the
directors will be asking power to increase the authorized capital. The
authorized capital is now $200,000,000
of which fiQft,umi,000 is Issued, leaving only $2,000,000 that can be issued
without special authorization. f'on-
iiideration of Ihe position leads to
the conclusion that tllO new stock issues Ih somewhat premature.
"Thn   Canadian   Pnoffln   Is   by   no,
moans hard  up for money, altl i-h
tho   munagomont   Is continually  on !
three I pointed out, ordinarily has on hand
a working cash balance of $50,000,000
or thereabouts. It could thus throw
$80,000,000 into construction work
this year without resorting to a
stock Issue. When one stops to
think how much work.ug capital it
requires to run 12,000 miles of ruil-
rond, trans oceanic fleets on both
sides of the continent, a liugh irrigation project gud the construction at
all times of MM to mm miles of new
lino, It ia uo wonder if the Canadian
pacific management is already laying
plans for a stock issue; hut thnt does
aot nocOBSal'lly menu that the issue
will be made for some time yet.
"How much money the company
will use this year depends largely upon the amouul of B03OIU1 track laid,
after that upon the mileage of new
line which the tabor supply and natural obstacles allow to bu built, The
profrnmiUQ for the year calls (or MM

Mme Steinhield's Memoirs

Messrs. Bell announce that they
just published the Colonial Edition
of Madame Steinheil's Memoirs,
Rumor has already been busy w th
this latest "sensation" and it is said
that in Prance determined efforts
wero mnde by those most interested
to prevent Madame Steinhell's revelations from seeing light In the country of her birth. Indeed this is not
to he wondered at, for Madame Htiln
holt's a mil'/. Ing experiences during the
famous Stelnheil Murder affair—her
acknowledged position as the intimate
friend of President. Kaare and n
leader of French society—place her in
a position to "lift the veil" of dls
eretlon tu the consternation of some
and the entertainment of the world
at large,
The experience of being charged,
tried and acquitted of the crime of
strangling one's own husband and
mother Is so rare that It is no sur
prise to learn that Madame fltelnheil
devotes a considerable portion of her
llfp. Wo now have the full story—the
murder—Madame Steinheil's arrest
and imprisonment In Saint Laznrre,
where for ,153 days she awaited tiie
final trial—the magisterial lnulry
and the trial itself.
Madame Stelnheil keeps back nothing; on the contrary she discloses certain facts which, noting under the advice of her counsel Maitre Auhln,
were concealed nt tho trial, but which
it Is now deemed udhfsabln to reveal.
These facts place an entirely fresh
aspect upon tiie still unsolved
mystery of the murder of M. Htoln*

nlso which nre fallen hslcep in Christ

14, 15, 18.)   Ho said:
The fnilh i.noe delivered to lho
saints by Josus und tho Apostles in
respect to tlio resurrootion oi tliu
dead Jms been very generally losl.
Christian people profess u belief in
lho resurrection, becauso they find it
stntod in lho Bible, yet they nre eon-
linually in difficulty in their endeavor to mako llm Scriptural teaching
on tho subject squnro with, somo of
tho uuscriptursl theories received
Into Uu- Church, und incorporated
into runny of the orcods during the
"llnrlt Ages."
I St, Paul warned the Church against
these human philosophies, and railed
them "science, falsely so called,"
which makes void lhe Word of Cod.
Those errors have been instrumental
iu dividing ilio fnith of Cod's people
into six hundred denominations, witli
aix hundred different professions. If
Cod's peopl,.- could nil come Imck to
the simplicity of ibe Bible's tokening
in respect lo the resurrection of the
dead, nil of these differences would
speedily dispapear. Clod'-* Word
would bo seen to be beautiful nnd
harmonious, satisfactory to the consecrated intellect, lis none of our
sectarian creeds nre.
Itoully the doctrine of tlio resurrection of lho deud has bcen repudiated
by ull denominations, not willingly,
not intentionally, but perforce, us it
were. An opposite theory received
and intrenched in the minds gives
no place lor the doctrine of lhe re-
surrcction, us the Bible presents it.
Consequently wo hnve twistod the
doctrine oi Die resurrection end re.
cite, "I believe in Uie resurrection
of the body."
V'l cv.-n this perverted view oi Ilie
resurrection is not satisfactory to
1b.is,; who hold il.   They wish many
II timo Hint the doctrine of the resurrection woro nut in the Bible, so
luiie'i difference does it cause. For
Instance, how Inconsistent it seems
that they should* sny, "1 believe in
the resurrection of lhe body," nnd
then suy. ns mnny do, Dying is but
going home, getting rid of tlio mortal
Hesh, and being freed from its limitations, lf it is u blessing t<i die and
get free from the limitations of the
body, how. could it be il blessing to
be reincarcerated in the body, and be
obliged to keep it tbrougb nil eternity ''. Such is the inconsistency of the
resurrection, however, from the gen-
em! view.
There is nothing inconsistent ill the
Biblo presentation ol the resurrection. Not from the Bible. Inn from
men, comes the suggestion of the
resurrection of the body. The, Bible
invariably refer: to the resurrection
of the soul. It is lho soul thnt dies;
ns w,. rend. "The soul Hint sinuoth,
it. shall die." Adam wns created n
living s il, bnt his living soul came
under the dentb aenteno I beams'- he
disobeyed Clod. It wns his soul thnt
was redeemed from dentb. not his
body. "I will redeem thy life (look
up the word life lo see if it is from
Hie 11,1,lew word meaning soul, und
if so, udd the word soul after the
word life, in parenthesis) from de.
hltiietion."—l'snlm eiii, 4.
To accomplish this redemption we
read llml Christ Jesus "pound oul
His soul unto dentli"; "He made His
soul uu offering for sin." Moreover,
wo are particularly told that it was
tb" soul of .lesus Hint was raised
from the >li nil: "Thou wilt not leave
My soul in sliool." HI. Peter quotes
this statement as prophetical of Hi"
resurrection of Jesus, that. HU soul
wus not left ill hades; God riiis-il
Jems from the deud on lhe third iluy.
With whut body do they c 'ine? is n
totally different question. Some of
the d"ud souls, iu the resiirreetion,
will coin" forth with spirit bodies,
uud others with human bodies, according to Hie Bible Bul the Important point is, Ihnt il. is the soul, lhe
being. Hint comes forth, lliat is resurrected—noi lhe body. If tho soul

Thoughts from the Editorial Pen

The School Board
A number ol inquires have been
made lately in regard to tbe buying
ut land, and the building of a new
school house outside of the corporative limits of the city, with a certain
amount of censure directed to the
Council for same.
In explanation we would say that
the School Board is an elective body
and is not responsible to the Council
aa to itB actions in any particular.
Its duty is to provide sufficient school
accommodation and tuition; it also
has the power to buy lands, erect
bulldtnps and establish as many-
schools according to the requirements
of tbe district.
The Board of Trustees have the power  to  make by-laws,   aud  such  by- ,
laws shall be submitted to the municipal council to be placed before the
people for tbeir approval or dissent.
At any time the School Board may
prepare and lay before the City Council a demand for cush to pay for additional buildings, teachers, and nr
structure, and the Council is compelled to furnish the necessary sum of
money. In reference to the item of
an account for f'ftSl.M which appeared
in tbe expenditures, as published in
the last issue of "The Prospector"
and made payable to V. Hyde Baker.
tbis was for land upon which at soma
future time the School Board wish to
build a school to meet the needs of
that district—when it ffrows—but at
present it lays outside of the corporate limits of the city. We might
ed say that the payment was strong
ly opposed by tbe City Council when
It was first brought before them,
but—they afterwards found out from
the city solicitor that they were com-!
pelled to pay it.
It would seem that the Board
of Trustees can levy a tax of 5 mills
or In extraordinary cases increase it
to ten or twenty mills; there does not
seem to be any limit aa to what can
be done by the Board.
Cranbrook this year is compelled to
•my a tax of 9 milts for educational
purposes, this may be increased later
on by a by-law glvlnj* the Trustees
$5,000.00 more on which interest will
have to be paid.
With street, new sewerage system,
and i'ther necessary Improvements
now heing made by the city, taxes
have reached the limit; and to be ex
tra burdened by the School Board for
a school house nnd rurnlture, outside
of the corporate limits of the city is
beyond reason, li would be far better for the property owners ot Cranbrook to confine its Bchool district to
the city proner, and let tbe Provln
cial Government take care of the unorganized portion of the district.
This is a matter which is at present
occupying the attention ol property
owners who consider that municipal
taxes have reached its limit, and who
don't want to be saddled with educational taxes that are unreasonable
and sxborbttant
The  question  ol  good   roads  is re
ceiving some attention by was ol ■-■
gliment these days. Agitation always
proceeds execution, let the good word
continue,   and   the   work   may  follow.

and for those who have moved to
some other locality, telling of marriages, births, deaths, the coming and

fact every thing of importance and
interest. If you should undertake to
write a letter to an absent friend
every week tellini* him all the news
you would get a faint idea of the
task in preparing a newspaper. Many
of our townspeople recognize this and
take pleasure in giving items of news
It helps us and is appreciated.
It is said that one night, when
some English soldiers were shivering
In the cold of a Crimean winter a
band struck up the familiar time,
"Home' Hweet Home!" then they all
burst out sobbing, because the air
went straight to their hearts. Yes!
"There is no place like home." One
of the sweetest words in the Kuglish
language is that little word. "Home"
•   «   •   *
Home should be—
"A world of strife shut out;
A world of love shut In."
Home is a harem of rest to a man
after a hard day's work. Mother, you
■ nay be tired after a trying day with
the children, but remember that others have trying days too. Father has
been in the office all day pouring over
business perplexities or financial
problems but now be locks the office
door and with a Sigh of relief he
thinks of his loved ones and turns
his [ace towards the rest and peace
of home. Don'i meet him at the door
with a look on your face that would
stop an eight .lay clock. Greet him
With a smile, make bun feel that
home Ts the sweetest mul most restful
place on earth.
He courteous in the home Hus
band, treat your wife like a lady in
the home as well as on tbe street If
you want your boy to be "a little
gentleman" when he is away from
home, he must have example as well
ss precept In the home Example
will do more for the boy and the girl
than any   book  on  ruler,  of etiquette.
Don't forget tint nine tenths of the
I happiness you will ever have, you
i will get at home. We talk about being independent, but the independence
that comes to a man when his work
.s over, and he feels that he has run
out ol the storm into the quiet of
the harbor of home where he can rest
in peace with his family, is an independence that is real.
Oh' tierce is the heat
And weary is the street,
And all day long
It is work. work, work;
But farewell work
When twilight's come
And the heart turns home.
Oh! the nest for the bird
And hive for the bee;
And home, home, home
For my dearies and me.
lt does not make much difference,
whether you own your house or home
but oue little room in that bouse you
can make that little room a home to
you. You can furnish it with such
beautifying thoughts, yuu can turn to
it with such sweet fancies, that It
will he fairly luminous with their
presence, and will be to you the very
perfection of a home.

"Nearer, My God, to
The Churches of Cranbrook
X.   W.   SAIW,   Vrops-Utor.!
One of the incidents of the sinking
of the Titanic which wuh of peculiarly human interest wan the playing by
the steamship's band of the hymn,
"Nearer, My God, to Thee," just be-
t'oro the vessel began to settle for her
Hurl plunge.
Explain It an we may, a (ine anthem
will excite the devotion of people
more certainly than the most logical
discourse, just as a martial strain
will urge n man into the front rank
of battle sooner than an argument.
And so, it is probable, the echo of
the invisible world, the note of the
divine concord, which the universe is
destined one day to sound, which the
hymn of Mrs. Adams produced had an
effect upon the hundreds confronted
by Inevitable death which nothing
but music could have caused.
I There are many hymns that are
! sung in the churches which have little
either of harmony or meaning to com
mend them. But, on the other hand,
the hymnology of the language In
well represented hy noble and uplifting compositions, of which "Nearer,
My God, to Thee" and the "Lend
Kindly Light" of Cardinal Newman
are Inspiring examples.
Music moves us on, and we know-
not why; we feel the tears, but cannot trace their source. Is it the lan-
L'liagc of some other state, born of
its memory? For what can wake the
soul's strong instinct of another
world like music!
"Let me hnve music dying, and I
seek no more delight," wrote Keats.
And while it would he a mockery to
say that delight wns the lot of the
unfortunate souls which sank to their
deaths when the Titanic went down,
certain it is thnt their last moments
were the less harrowing for the strain
of the band which played during
those last terrible moments.
The meaning of the song goes deep.
It must have led the victims of the
Titanic to the edge of the inunnte
nnd let tbem gaze into that.

good or bad families. In nil the breed
In the laying competitions, sometimes one breed will win and sometimes another, sn It Is impossible to
select birds by a breed that will lay
the most eggs. The trap-nest has revealed the fact that hens vary in egg
yield from less than a dozen eggs a
year to more than twenty dozen, and
this variation extends to all breeds
nnd varieties, ('.nod layers can not
be selected by shape and varieties.
For practical or useful purposes
fowls may be divided into four classes, as follows:
1. Egg Breeds.—The most noteworthy characteristics of tbe egg
breeds ure: small size, active and
nervous disposition, early maturity,
poor sitters, good foragers, sensitiveness to cold. The princinal represent
atives of the egg breeds are Leghorns
Mlnorcns, Spanish, Andaluslan and
2. Meat Breeds.—Among the characteristics of the meat breeds may be
mentioned large size, gentleness in
disposition, slow In movement, not
good foragers, easily confined; as u
rule, poor layers; late in maturing,
persistent sitters. Brahmus, Cochins
and Lungshnns arc the principal meat
S. Oeneral Purpose Breeds—These
are of modlum size, gnod table fowls,
fair layers, less active than the egg
breeds, hut more so thnn the meat
breeds; gnod mothers. l'lymouth
(locks, Wviindnttes, llhmlc Island Red
and Orpingtons belong to this class.
t. Knncy Breeds.—Bnntums ol various varieties, Polish and rlllklos
come under this head, and are raised
chiefly for some peculiarity nf fnrm
or feather without regard tn uaeful
Of the egg breeds, the White I,eg-
linrii Is the must popular, and in
those markets which roquire white
egga this breed has the call and Is
used almost eicluslvely, nnd on the
large Intensive plants, for the reason
that, although the Leghorn Is a very
active bird, It stands rnnflnoment and
crowding In large numbers better thu
nny other variety. Homo Leghorn
strains aro good winter layers, but,
as a rule, the general-purpose (owls
nre considered better fnr winter eggs,
tbe must popular breed among the
generiil-purpose fnwlshelng the Ply
mouth Mock, with tha Rhode Island
Reds, Orpingtons and Wyandottes In
close order. Any nf these breeds,whon
the winter strain Is secured, will produce winter eggs In large quantities.
In England nud upon Ihe continent
—Prance nnd Belgium—lliey hnve regulnr ment breeds, bred for lorclng
crnte feeding nnd finishing hy cram
mini:, but no such breeds exist or nro
bred tn nny eitent on this continent
Our consumers do not, as yet, do
iiiniiil tbls kind ol poultry meat. Our
I climate la not suitable lor many of
! these varieties. Tho different classes
\',  merge Into ouch other, so thut any
classification will not always hold
good. At Cornell, Professor Rice has
bred tne White Leghorn for meat,
while retaining the egg production.
They are quick growers, hnve large,
meaty bodies and approach the general-purpose fowl in general utility.
The nearest approach we have to the
meat bird nre some special struinB
of Plymouth RockB such ns are bred
at Quelph station, Ontario. We aUo
hnd superior laying strains among
the Plymouth Rocks, such as hnve
heen developed at tbe Maine stntion.
Then, there nre the standard exhibition strains of Plymouth Rocks. So,
even among one breed, you find
strains showing ns much difference in
the way of eggs or flesh, shape, type
aud practical qualities ns ezlst between the different breeds.
The main thing in the selection of
breed Is to secure breeding stock of
exceptlonnl strength, or as strong a
vitality as possible, for, without such
foundation, it is Impossible, (or to
attain to any permanent success. We
must have vitality, no matter whether the birds are bred for flesh, lor
eggs or for general-purposes.
To select birds with strong vitality
from characteristics, see Cornell Read
Ing Course for Farmers No. 45—"Importance of Constitutional Vigor In
the Breeding of Poultry"—(rom which
we make a few free extracts.
Among the contributory causes to
the loss of physlcnl vigor nre the tol-
lowing: The greatest and most potent
cause Is soil contamination, congestion und crowding of breeding stock
upon limited nrciis, bringing with It
Inck of exercise, Improper housing
nnd feeding; in-nnd-ln breeding, without selecting the most vigorous birds
the ton-common use of pullets, instead of matured fowls, for breeding
stock; forced egg yield by heavy feeding during the winter; carelessness In
keeping eggs tor Incubation; (nulty
methods of Incubation; the use ol
poor Incubators nnd brooders; ton ra
pld forcing on rich, enslly assimilated
Inod, with lack of exercise; general
violation of the principles ot sanitation nnd brooding, housing and riin.-o
failure to select breeding stock of recognized superior physlcnl vigor; the
use ol birds thnt hnve been hatched
too enrly—thnt wero stunted In growth or hntchod tnn late, and were tint
grnwn under proper conditions, nnd
do not reach full size when breeding
season commences.
It In impossible to pass judgement
nn the merits of nny particular variety or Individual of tbe breed without knowing how thoy havo heon bred
nnd bundled, but there urn some physlcnl characteristics that will aid any
one In selecting brooders tbat are apt
to turn out to he ol strong vitality
nml vigor, nnd only nuch ahould be
placed In the breeding ynriln. If your
birds show anv Indication of Inck of
vigor, we would tint udvise tho use of
pullet Is Inr breeders; use full matured
fnwls nr hens. When nnce up tn the
normnl amount of vigor, wo see no
roiisiiii why woll-ilovolopcil pullets ran

Division of Naval Duties.
Speaking last night Rt. Winston
Churchill Baid that events have lately led up to the greater concentration
of the tleet iu home waters which
meant a relative reduction of its mobility, "In this" Mr. Churchill continued, " Is to be found the great opportunity, the great chance for the
self supporting dominions, those
strong young nations which have
grown up all over the world under
the shelter ot the British flag and by
the stimulus of its protection. They
have begun to seize their opportunities already. We have seen tbe development In Australia of a strong modern xeet unit. New Zealand has con
tributed a noble ship to the mother
navy; in Canada men of all rac'S hi d
all parties are deeply stirred upon
the problems of the share which the
Dominion should take in the protection ot the British empire and the;
means by which it and all parts of
the empire are to be kept free from
"We are soon to receive representations," he continued, "ot the new Canadian administration who are coming here to consult with the admiralty on the course of policy which is to
be adopted in the future. If the main
naval developments of the last ten
years have heen the concentration of
British fleets into decisine theatres it
seems to me most unlikely that the
main naval developments of the next
10 yenrs will he the growth of effective naval forces in the great dominions overseas. Then 1 think we shall
be able to make what I think will be
found to be the true division of labor
between the mother country and her
daughter states, which is, that we
should maintain the sea supremacy
against all comers at decisive points
and they should guard and patrol all
the rest of the British empire.
"I am certainly not going to attempt to forecast or prescribe the
exact form which those developments
should take though the march of opin
ion appears to be proceeding upon
thoroughly prnctical lineH. This,
however, I will venture to say: The
admiralty sees no reason why arrang-
ments should not be made to give the
dominions ncroBS the seas a full measure of control over the movements
in pence of any naval force which
with our help, they muy bring into
efficient exist a nee, In war we know
our country-men overseas will have
only one wish nnd that is to encounter the enemy wherever the need and
danger is most severe. The important thing is that gaps should be filled
so that while we In tbe old country
guard the decisive centre our comrades and brothers across the seas
shall keep the flag flying on the ocean
of the world."
Mosquito    Fleet
Highway Post Stolen
Criminal action to bo taken
New Westminster, U. C. —The first
hitter spirit of rivalry existing iu the
towns of Alberni, on the west conBt
of Vnncouver Island, culminated a
few days ago tn an act of vandalism,
tiie uprooting of the ilrst post of the
Canadian Highway, planted with imposing ceremony on Saturday, May
■1th, hy W. J. Kerr, president of the
Canadian Highway Association, iu
the presence of an assembly including
many of the prominent figures of Bri
tlsh Columbia and the state of Washington.
Port Alberni has heen a keen aspirant for the honor of providing the
rite ot the post; but, because of the
advantages of locution, this has been
awarded to the old town.
A few days ago after the poathad
heen planted, In the dead of night,
thtee of the residents of Port Alberni
stole out from their town, armed
with pickaxes, shovels, nnd crowbars,
and proceeded to the old town, where
they quickly uprooted the initial sign
post of the Canadian Highway, and
:arried it in triumph to Port Alberni.
The disappearance of the sign was
the one object of conversation in
Alberni the next morning, and early
in the day an emergency meeting of
the prominent men was called, and
immediate action decided upon. Concentrated suspicion pointed due south
but even before a dell nute plan of action was decided upon a group of men
waB seen approaching from Port Alberni, bringing with them tho desecrated sign, The hearers of the sign
post tendered the old town profuse a-
pologies from the Mayor A. E. Water
house and the members of his council.
Thus the matter is ended so far ai
the Albernta are concerned, but it is
probable that more will be heard of
it, as the officers of the Canadian
Hignwny Associntion arc extremely
annoyed at the liberty taken. The
tampering with signposts is a criminal offence in Canada, and liable to
severe punishment. Several prosecu
tions have heen instituted by the
Pacitlc Highway Association in the
past few months, when the proof
could be adduced against some party
or parties who had wilfully tampered
with or mutilated their signs.
In order to mitigate against the
possibility of the repetition of this
fool trick, it is the intention of the
Association to take proceedings a-
gainst the Port Alberni men who
tore up the post, nnd to make this
an example that will serve ns a warn
ing to others. Speaking on this subject yesterday, President Kerr said:
"I look upon the tearing up of the
first post of the Canadian Hihhway
as an act of desecration, inevcry way
as objectionable ns would be the removal of the corner stone of a sacred
edifice. This post was planted with
due form and ceremony in the presence of over 12000 people, men of pro
mlnence from all the coast cities and
from Seattle, Tacoma and Portland
taking part in the function. It is
certainly humiliating to these gentlemen to think thnt, after the expense
and inconvenience to which they were
put, such an unfortunate thing should
happen. I trust that the incident
will mark the culmination of the feel
ing between the towns of Alberni and
Port Alberni, and that from now on
these two places will cultivate a more
friendly spirit and some of that
sweetness of disposition and charity
which makcB for the betterment of all

Under a new scheme of defense Initiated by Winston Spencer Churchill,
flrst lord ot the admiralty, the destroyers of the British tleet commenced on May 1st a continuous patrol
of the coasts of the United Kingdom
The northeast coast, menaced as it iB
by the powerful fleet of the German
Empire, Ib necessarily most closely
guarded nnd there the most modern
and powerful vessels of the mosquito
fleet supported by submarines, have
been stntioned.
Heretofore the two battle squadrons of the home fleet have had attached to them a destroyer flotilla
with reserve flotillas at the naval
bases at Devonport, Portsmouth nnd
the Nore. The new scheme provides
thnt no destroyers are to be permanently attached to the battle Hleeta.
Instead, the whole available forces
have heen organized Into eight Hotil-
as four being in full commission nnd
four in reserve with necleus crews.
Of the tour active flotillas the first
and second composed of 30 of the
uewest and most powerful vessels
will have their base at the new naval
headquarters at Ronyth, on the east
of Scotland, and faring directly ac
ross to Germany, besides guarding
the north exit to the Atlantic. The
third flotilla will have its base at
Harwich another cist const port nnd
the fourth at Portland on the Hn-
glish channel where it will be available for work on any const. At each
of these bases there will he one reserve flotilla while other destroyers
will patrol othor parts of the coaRt
not covered by these.
No fewer than 165 destroyers are
Included In the new organization besides eight fast cruisers, eight BCOUts
nnd eight depot and repair ships. Of
this number one-third are assigned to
the North Sea, so tlmt with 24 submarines with bases at Dundee nml
Harwich, the coasts of hlngland
ihould ho well guarded. Naval ex
ports, In fact, estimate tbat the new
scheme doubles the effective strength
of the nilvniii'c guurd along the oust-
on. snapoard.
With the execution of the fifth flotilla, nil tho North Hen destroyers
are driven by turbines nnd the major
Ity burn oil, Most, of the vessels at
Rosyth hnve heen built, since 1010 and
Imve a speed of 29 knots and they
will ho shortly strengthened by the
new 27 knot boats. All have either
been designed or ulterod for rough
work in the rough waters of the
North Sen. The active flotillas are
fitted     with     wireless     telegraph
Mnde Especially to Burn ti. 0.
