Poultry Notes of Interest
By M. C, Herner, B.S.C.
Since the warm summer days are
now upon »n again, we tind there arc
quite u few things in our poultry
yards which require immediate at*
Probably the most urgent uud most
vexing problem te that of kceplUK
down the life or getting rid of them.
lf the roost are cleaned off regularly
and sprinkled with air slacked lime
once a week ami then sprayed with
kerosene aad carbolic acid once a
month, and the nests treated with a
similar application, then there will he
very little trouble with those little
red mites. It in a comparatively easy
matter to keep down the lice, but
once they have a start, there Is nothing short of a thorough cleaning
and renovation, followed by thorough spraying which will enable you
to rid the hen house of the little insect pests.
If you hnve neglected to break up
the broody hem. or neglected to
clean off the roosts regularly, you
will doubtless lind myriads of red
mites 1n the nests, on thc roosts,
and in and around the cracks and
crevices of the poultry house. We
have plenty of good reliable louse
killers on the market, a few applications of which will be sufficient to
exterminate the lice. A simple home
made louse killer can be made by
mixing together live parts of kerosene to one of carbolic acid. Apply
this mixture with an ordinary pota
to bug sprayer. First, clean out the
nests, also clean off the roosts, then
spray well with the above mixture,
being sure to spray the lower sides
of the roosts thoroughly, and also
the roOBts supports, and the cracks
around the roosting place.
During July and August is the pro
Moors, about an inch or two of the
old surface should he removed every
year, and be replaced hy a layer of
fresh, clean sand or gravel, broken
windows, torn curtains, etc.. should
be repaired ur replaced at this timo
of the year, then the hoiiRe will be
ready in good time to get the young
stock in early in the fall.
Another thing to do during July &
August Is to kill off any and all hens
over two years old- Tly killing them
off at this time of the year, they
they have laid all the eggs they are
going to lay this season, so you will
get full value out of them as egg
producers und also the highest price
for them as table poultry, since they
come on the market before tbis sen-
son's chicken crop begins to move.
Kvery year we see what it means
to have sufficient green food during
the warm dry summer months for
our growing stock, ln many cases
you can guard against a scarcity of
this valuable part of a laying, and a
growing ration by sowing oats or
wheat In June. Alfalfa or clover
will also come in handy for green
food, but it is usually not so easily
procured as the others. Corn, sunflowers, etc., It planted early in the
season, will furnish elegant shade
during July and August. Shade is
absolutely necessary for both old and
young stock. If there is no natural
material furnished, then some artificial shade should be provided to
give protection from the hot, burning
rays of the sun.
At this time of the year we have
ao many inquiries coming in regarding disease in poultry. We are safe to
say that in the majority of cases,
disease finds its origin in filthy, dirty
houses   or    general   unsanitary   con

Its annual application of white-wash,
Clean out the bouse first, taking out
all the removable material in the
line of nests, dust boxes, and feed
boxes, etc. Clean out all thc litter
and dirt, then apply the white-wash.
Put it on good and thick. It can be
made to stick better by adding milk
or using practically all milk instead
nf water. Simply use sufficient water to slack the lime properly then
add milk to make the wite-wash tbe
right thickness or consistency. Add
a pint of salt to every three or tour
gallons of white-wash. To this
mixture add five per cent of carbolic
add. The white-wash can be made
more effective for killing germs by np
plying it with a brush, it Is a pretty difficult matter to apply tt hot.
In houses where there are board or
cement floors, tbey can he cleaned

The poultry house should be cleaned
out regularly, the droppings should
be removed at least once a week.
Sanitary drinking vessels should be
provided, and also clean feeding
troughs. In too many of our poultry houses we find dirty water
troughs containing lllty, stagnant
water, full of disease germs. Place
the water in clean troughs or pans,
so arranged that the sun will not
heat up the water. Clean them out
every morning and put in fresh water. Any soft teed that is fed should
be placed in feeding troughs and

have conditions here quite peculiar to
tills district, and cultural methods
which will win success in some districts will be very likely to result in
failure here.
In the Ilrst place I will say a little
as to the preparation nf the soil, and
I believe that tbe strawberry will be
found to succeed with less elaborate
propagation thnn perhaps any other
small fruit or vegetable which one
may plant in this district. If the
Innd is cleared and broken lu June,
worked a little during summer and
then full plowed it will be ln pretty
good shape for planting the following spring without the use of manure
or other fertilizer of any kind.
It is a fact well understood In Kast
ern Canada thnt it Is impossible to
have the soil too rich for the strawberry; but such does not seem to be
the rase here. If manure la applied
to strawberry land here they are very
much Inclined to run all to plant.
This is true In the case of some varieties more than in others. The
Clark's Seedlimr is the worst in this
respect, and the plants will continue
to grow until they are an enormous
size; but when the time comes to pro
dure (hey merely continue to grow
larger still, scarcely producing any
bloom nt all. other sorts like the
Stevens Gate champion are troubled
with mildew on manured land—both
these varieties were quite successful
with ine on land which had received
no fertilization.
iprlngi cultivate the land to be
planted to* early us possible, as thoroughly as possible. After it is in
good condition keep It worked as often as is necessary to maintain a dry
earth mutch until you are ready or
think It admissable to plant. I
think it admissable not to plant until there Is no danger of heavy frosts
as young plants newly set are much
more easily damaged than those
which are established in the soil. It
Is not wise however, to allow plants
to be used for starting a new plantation to commence growing before
they are dltrged as the transplanting
will then give them an unnecessary
set-back. II is much better to dig
them up and hcol In as a means ot
carrying them over until wanted for
planting. A nice loamy piece of
ground should be chosen for this purpose mid the plants heavily mulched
to keep In a semi ■dormant condition.
A great many can be handled ln and
on a very small piece of land.
after re-setting
The best plants for setting are obtained from a virgin mother plant.
By this is meant, one which has never blossomed or bourne fruit. Border
plants from an old fruiting row are
very inferior for this purpose as a
rule. In case one Is in the berry
growing as a business, it is admis-
ahle to make a special planting for
propagation purposes each spring.
The soil for this purpose may he
made very rich, as the more they
run better ; there is no danger of the
young runner plants heing too large
the first season.
In case a  person is starting with
his flrst plantation   nnd   is   buying
plants, there are several thinga to be
takeu  into   consideration.    It  is  a
good plan to enquire of someone already growing berriea near at hand
what  varieties are doing best  with
him-    Most of you know I dare say
that strawberries of different varieties are not all provided with blossom
of  the  same  nature;  some  are  supplied   with   pistils  or female  organs
only, while others have both pistils
and stamens and are known as bi-
seinals    The pistilate varieties must
of necessity he planted not more than
two rows side by side with every 3rd
row of a strong bisexual which will
bloom at the same time.    Home of
the heaviest bearing varieties are pistilate and consequently are much too
valuable to he discarded on nccount
of their incomplete nature.    It must
also be bourne in mind that a great
many  of  the  hlaexual   varieties  are
of no vslue in pollonizlng others and
some nre so devoid of pollen as to be
unable to fertilize their own blossoms
These latter must he treated as pistillate varieties.   The wild strawberry
which grows in this district is of this
nature.   It is a bisexual but very little pollen will he found on the stamens.   On the other side of the fence
from  my   strawberry   Held   tbe  wild
berries now  hear a  heavy  crop and
the farther  one  gets  away   thc  less
they  bear   which  shows    that    what
they require Is pollen.
This question of the proper mating
of varieties is a very large one, it Is
In fact a study for a life time. The
most reliable Arms dealing ia plants
give thc necessary information in
their catalogues. Senator Dunlnp is
a splendid variety here and In addition to being perfectly self-fertlllzmg
It will fertilize other sorts which
bloom at the same time. The Magoon
wblcb   Is  perhaps  the  most  largely
grown berry in British Oolumbla is
self fertilized but I believe would be
tbe better of cross pollenlzatton or
the fruit is not always perfect, but I
am not prepared to say wbat with.
When you receive your plants from
tbe nursery take them in bunches and
cut off u portion of the ends of the
roots, the reason for this is that a
newly cut surface will callous over
and send out new rootlets more rapidly than will plants ia CHtf CQirdl
tion in which they are received. Then
take each plant and with a sharp
knife prune off every leuf but the centre one which is called the crown leaf
The other leaves would only be a
drain on the root system and retard
new growth for some time. If not
ready to plant when received you
should heel in as described before and
do not leave them In the packing case
Wben you are ready to plant it is
well to level ground as then a marker
can be used which mahes \ or more
rows at one operation, Thia marker
you can make yourself, it is like a
wooden rake on a large scale with
the teeth as far apart an you wish
the rows. Rows should be 3 or 4 feet
apart and plants IH or 'IU inches a
part in the row. A dibble such as is
sold for the purpose hy the R. M.
Kellog Oo. is the best tool tor plant
ing with. In planting fan the roots
of the plant out well and when you
have placed the plant In position
compress tbe soil on either side of
the roots very .irmly with tbe hands
to prevent air from penetrating to
them, hut be enreful to draw over the
compressed soil a little loose earth
to prevent evaporation. This can all
he done in much less time tban it
takes to tell it. Care must be taken
to have the crown of each plant exactly on n level with the surface o(
the soil. If too deep it will smother
and if too high it dries out and will
die iu either case.
As soon after planting as possible
they should he cultivated wltb a one
horse cultivator to break up all foot
prints and re-establish the dust mulch
which may be more or Ipss destroyed
by tbe leveling nf the soil, The
space between the plants in the row
should then he loosened with a hoe
or preferably a buco cultivator.
A short time nfter planting, the
young plants will commence to throw
up bunches of fruit buds which should
he picked oil at once and the plants
not allowed to bear fruit as such will
tbey will not make a satisfactory
fruiting row fni the following season,
If you are nbservaiil yon will notice
that, they seldom make much of a
growth until the fruit buds have been
removed, when if the weather is good
ami other conditions suitable, they
will at once commence to make rapid
growth ami send out runnels.

however, the hest growers are aban-
doning   the    practice,   especially    In}
semi-arid districts where shallow cultivation    has   heen    found    superior.
The best authorities predict that the 1

will cultivate through the whole bear

in spring leave the liner portion of it
on  the ground  and  in  lirst cultivating give one stroke with the cultivator harrow, then widen it out and
Immediately give a second stroke and
in this way all the mulch which was

where it will prevent splashing of the
fruit during heavy rains.    That is if

Masked Robbers Tackle Vancouver Bank
The Hunk of Hamilton's branch at
Cedar College, five miles from the
centre of the city was the scene of a
boldly-planned but hml ly-executed
robbery Saturday night at y o'clock,
just us the bunk was closing. The
desperadoes, armed and masked, num
1 beretl six, tour at least believed to
be Italians. Not more than 400
dollars was the amount of their
plunder, this sum being secured from
11 the teller's desk.
■     Manager   T.   H. Rhodes had found
, i opportunity  to  ring  a  newly  install
Med   tire   alarm   siirnal, and fears tor
I their   own safety prevented the bandits from rushing the safe.    Immedi-
I ntely they backed oul from the bank
! building,   showering   bullets  on   the
| crowd in the street.    Police Consta-
! ble   Winters shot one of the robbers,
[ but his companions carried bim to a
waiting   automobile,    and    escaped.
Most    of   the  bullets   passed high In
the   uir or into the side'.-.ulks, hut a
stray  one  crashed   through   the  plate
class windows of a neighboring gro-
1 eery stole and struck P\ T. Foley, a
clerk,    in    the    lei*.     Others    passed
tbrougb windows ami doom of ml
' joinnii; stores, missing those inside.
It   was remarkable  that   several  boys
ami  mils  plaviio:   in  tlu-  immediate
vicinity of the bank were not injured
Tbe robbery, in the opinion of
those who were held up, was done in
a very amateurish fashion. In the
bank building nt 8.BG, when three of
the Italians entered with cries ot
"Money, money!" were Manager
Rhodes, who was standing behind the
teller's cage; J. Hcott, the teller; J.
Norman, ledger keeper; A. Hunter,
the janitor; nud .1. A. Simpson and
A. Sears, who were standing in trout
of the teller's cage, having just made
a deposit.
With the lower pari of their faces
covered with handkerchiefs, the men
dashed into the front of the office.
Two dashed into the manager's ofllce
and got behind the toller's cage. A
man. evidently the leader, presented
a gun under the nose of Mr. Rhodes,
while the other pushed the teller out
nf the cane, and grubbed all the mon
ey on tbe desk and some in the
rash drawer,
Teller Scott bucked to the rear
wull of the otlice from the teller's
Cage and pressed a button in the
wall behind him. Mr. Rhodes, who
had been ordered back in his olllce,
did the Sana' thing, it was this action of the two men who  were oven
then looking down the barrels of a
revolver that saved the bank from
losing a great deal more money.
The buttons were connected with a
fire irong in a South Vancouver
brunch tire hall, and when the bell
in the hall rang, the firemen on duty
responded by pressing a button.
Thia rang a gong in the bank otlice.
Immediately after, a shot from the
teller's cage pierced the wall between
the place where Mr. Scott stood and
the mnnager's office, expending most
of Ita force in the wall, the bullet
dropping to the floor. Then followed
the hasty flight of the hold-ups.
Tbe masked men believed to lw
members of the gang which held up
the Hunk of Hamilton earlier in the
evening, held up the occupants of a
taxi-cab at midnight Saturday, near
Kast Col line wood tire hall, securing
Jewelry to the value of about (100,
The outlaws hud placed a tree trunk
across the rond to stop the automobile. This accomplished, they ordered the occupants, at the point of revolvers, to line up. The robbers then
relieved their victims of their watches.

His task completed at the War Office the father of Ihr "Terriers" baa
once inure donned the legal robes.
In llieae few emphatic words is revealed tbe dominant note in t)te strenuous career of this successful Scotsman, who has bo dramatically fulfilled the early predictions of those who
first heard bim in the House of Commons over a quarter ot a century
ago, says Lindsay Crawford in Tu*
To li to  Saturday   Night.
Viscount Hsldane's intense devotion to duty at tbe War Otlice, his
■mazing capacity for concentrated
and sustained work, hte constant de-
light in expatiating on the greatness
of the Empire and tie high destinies
of the Hritisb race, gave John Bull
for tiie fiifcl- time since the Boor
War, a feeling of confidence and security in a department nn whose efli-
ciency, in the lasl resort, rests the
late of the nation.
Viscount Haldane had already won
a reputation in the Law Courts when
lie took his sent in the House of
Commons in 1885. With a great legal
career open to him he plunged Instead
inlo the arena of politics. Fate has
otherwise ruled his destiny and be
has changed over once more to the
side  of the  law.
The Liberal Cabinet of 1905 waa
noted for its brainy men, and among
Ministers ot literary distinction Viscount Haldane had already won fame
as a philosophical writer. His heavy
build and  stolid appoaraiu c  give the
impression at first sight of a prosperous merchant. He had a brilliant
university career in Scotland and studied philosophy at Gottiugen. in Germany. He is said to know more
about Kant, Hegel and Schopenhauer
than any other man in Parliament.
H'j writings are marked by great hi*
oitftty and scholarly erudition. He
Is a persuasive speaker rather than
an orator aud his contributions to de-
hate smack more of tbe Law Court*
than tbe platform. A prodigious worker, if genius means production, then
he has earned the title. He ia a
stickler tor efficiency and merit, and
one nf his first jobs was tn sweep Ihe
War Office clean uf petticoat influence.
He was a favorite in the House of
Commons, for that Ho-tiae knows how
to cherish those who add weight and
distinction to lis deliberations. A
close personal friend of Mr. Balfour
* that "soutest advocate ol a pious
scepticism"*—It ban been well said
tbat the dividing line between these
two philosophical minds is that "Haldane is all for reason and Balfour
all for faith."
Pre-eminently qtiollfled in point of
mental equipment, knowledge cf the
law, capacity fnr close reasoning and
sustained argument, and, above all,
gifted with soiin^ common sense, lho
new Lord Chancellor brings to his
high oltlce a temperament tbnt enables bim to view the problems of
thn day from "shove the snow line."
A true philosopher, he appeals neither ta passion nm- to prejudice, Ho
never over-stales  his case,
As Lord Chancellor be will scarcely feel impelled in be less independent of party dictation than his pre-
lect-ssor, Lord Lore burn. Ho is a
conservative force and will influence
largely the legislation that has yet
to come touching the reform if that

Tl probably will be news to most
person*, lhat tbe ancient natives of
Wales, who were known variously as
Cymry, Cymri, Cwymry or Kyinry,
were well informed in regard to Ihe
practice of medicine. As curly as 430
B.C, says Lewis Dayton Buidiok fn
The Dietetic and Hygienic Gazette,
some protection and encouragement
was given by the laws of Dyvnwul
Moelmud to the protection and practice of medicine.
"It ranked/' be says, "with commerce and navigation among the

One serio-comic episode in which
Laboucbere was the principal actor
was thus described by "Labby-' himself in London Truth:
The worst mess that I ever got into was at a dinner in a country town
where I took the chair. Having got
through all the usual toasts, a friend
promoted me to propose the health
of the mayor's wife. I drew a picture of a sort ot modern Cornelia. I
dwelt upon tbe matron's domestio
virtues, her unselfish lovo for her
distinguished husband, and prayed
heaven that I might find such a wife.
Carried away by my subject, T had
forgotten my audience. Suddenly I
perceived (bat some were looking
down, others staring at me as though
their eyes would come out ol their
heads, others smiling in a curious
manner, white the mayor himself was
glaring at me like a wild beast. 1
discovered afterward that the mayoress had fled from the domestic health
a few weeks previously with a Dou
Juan of a grocer. I have never boun
asked since to take the chair al a
dinner in that town."

and the elements of time and distance
are   inseparably   identified   with   all

Expect Fight on Redistribution
It is genernlly believed that the
parliamentary redistribution bill will
be brought down camparatlvely early
next session. All of the statistical
information, upon which the enactment will be based, has heen tabulated and the draft measure after introduction, will he sent to a special
committe to determine which constituencies will he eliminated and which
will have their representations increased. In previous years considerable party fighting hus characterized
the discussion of redistribution bills
and it Is likely again to prove a
very contentious measure. The redistribution bill will give the west
22 new members which will be taken
oil Ontario und the maritime provinces.
Mr. Olount, secretary to Premier
Borden, who has arrived in Ottawa
from England, announces tbat Mr.
Borden will he in the capitol on
Sept 7th, and will be tendered a civic reception.

Once Indispensable to Farm Buildings
Now Seldom Seen
The announcement of the death In
Missouri recently of John Cole,   In-
voiltor of tbe lightning-rod. recalls the
spectacular career of that formerly in-

f   Penney!*  morce and of science as science was
which lm* understood by the laymen  of  earlier
"    days.
No ("oubt there are half grown boys
and girls In plenty now wbo have
never seen a lightning rod, yet a quarter of n century ago no building was
considered t-afe from u bolt of light*
nlng unless It was surmounted by llie
trusted steel point which was expected to attract tho tluid and convey it
harmlessly Inlo the earth.
Public faith In the etlleacy of the
lightning rod was so great that It was
dlfllcull lor ihe owner of a building to
get a (Ire insurance policy unless he
Aral provided a lightning rod aa a
shield from danger from the elements,
as dues the average negro depend upon his little bag provided by the hoo
doo vender,
The fanner was the especial easy
mark Betected by the smooth light

To Preserve Fruit for Exhibition
Special to the Prospector
The preparation of fruit in Blast,
(or exposition purposes ls only successfully accomplished by a few who
have made a study of it. There are
certain fixed formulas In use, and
practice nmbeis. perfect.
In view of the number of classes
provided at the International Dry-
Farmed Products Rxposltlon at Leth
bridge, Alta., Oct 19-2C, for fruit
preserved in Klaus, the exposition
committee desires to call attention
to a few formulas in funeral use.
The essential requisites to succesB
It is very necessary that the fruit
be tlrst properly prepared. Do not
handle the fruit with hare hands,
wear a pair of Boft woolen gloves;
clip the fruit from the tree or vine,
leaving the stem. Wash it under a
spray or hoBe of cold water to remove all dust or foreign matter;
hang by the stem until thoroughly
dry. Be sure to select perfect specimens, placing them in preserving liquids 24 to 48 hours. Before thoroughly ripened have your jars cleaned and ready, also preserving liquids
properly prepared before gathering
your fruit. After fruits are prepared
set in a cool dark place. Always use
distilled or boiled water, but never
rain water.
Don't get discouraged if the tlrst
attempt doea not prove successful
but keep experimenting until you do
succeed. Don't fail to properly label the specimens, giving name, variety, wliere and by whom produced.
The formulas follow:
For berries and all fruits.—Clear
water white kerosene is frequently
used with good results with strawberries, blackberries, raspberries and
currants. Be sure that uo dropM of
water remain on the berries.
Alt fruits and vegetables.—To
every gallon of wnter add one-half
ounce corrosive sublimate. Tins has
given good satisfaction with nearly
all kinds of fruit and vegetables and
should It become clouded or dim can
be renewed. Must be handled with
caution, as, it is rank poison. Peas
placed in jars with pods cracked o-
pen make a nice display.
For firm, smooth-skinned fruits.—
To every gallon of water add one
quart of glucose and one-half ounce
formaldehyde. This does well for
pears, peaches, prunes, grapes, cherries, currants and gooseberries, but
not for logan berries, black or raspberries.
For light colored fruit.—To every
gallon of water add two ounces car-
bbnnte of soda, six and a half ounces
potassium nitrate (salt peter) one
and a half ounces glycerine.
For dark colored fruits and berries.
—To one gallon of water add six
and one-half ounceB of potassium nitrite, one-quarter ounce formaldehyde aud oue ounce glycerine.
It is time to begin preparations to
exhibit, and a premium list will be
sent gratis upon request to J. W.
McNicol, Chairman Exposition Committee, Lethbridge, Alta. •
Protection Against Typhoid
Owing to the prevalence of Typhoid
Fever in many parts of the Dominion
of Canada, the attention of the general public is called to the protection
afforded to this disease by the inoculation of Typhoid Vaccine.
The vaccine may be injected by a
doctor, or in the case of a doctor not
being at band, a trained nurse could
carry out the procedure. The tirst
injection of vaccine, amounting to a
few drops of a sterile liquid introduced under the skin, is followed in
ten day's time by a larger injection,
and for greater security a third may
be given ten days after the second.
A few hours after the Ilrst njection
a little headache and slight malaise
may be experienced, with tenderness
about the point of inoculation. This
is seldom sufficient to cause a man to
stop work, as by the next morning
he usually feels as well us usual.
.After the second and third injections
no reaction Ib produced, the person
seldom experiencing any discomfort
It is significant that many large
employers of labor have gone into
this subject deeply, with gratifying
results, statistics having shown that
of those properly inoculated practically none have taken typhoid within
u year, and protection ib probably afforded for a much larger period.
This method should appeal especially to friendly societies and labor
unions who pay benefits to their sick
Typhoid  Vaccine  may  be obtained
on    app.lcation    to   the    provincial
Board ot Health, or from drug-stores
