tie On Sunday Last Largest
City Has Ever Known
With tho passing of Mrs. Georgi,
lleutilo, wiro ur Mr. 11. E. Beattie, lust;
Thursday, tho hand ot death was laid
tu uvlly upon the city and district. For
two or three weeks itast her condition
hud been such un to cause eonslderu
ble anxiety, and t vou though for lho
liiHt Tew days It seemed that thore
could be but one outcome to ber III-
liess, yet the Inevitable BllOQk of death
wiih not lessoned when tin. news of
her passing citiu...
It waa decided to remove hor from
the hospital hero to Spokunt, where
It wiih hoped by specialist treatment
tu combat the disease which had fan-
tuned Itself upon her, or at least slay
lt« ravages for a tlmo. Ou Thursday
last sho was taken on the train, accompanied by Mr. Beattie, Dr. tl. 10.
L, MacKinnon and Mrs. F. Small, as
nurse, It was destined, however, that
Mrs. Beattie should not reach tho end
of the journey alive, death occurring
when about two hours out of Spokane.
Only a few minutes before she was
fully conscious, and had spoken confidently in regard to the outcome of
the journey.
News ot tlie sad outcome of the journey was received in the city iFrl-
morning, and on all sides sincere expressions of regret were heard, testifying as to the respect and esteem In
which the deceased lady was held.
The body was brought back to the
city the following dny, being taken
from the afternoon train to the undertaking parlors.
As Miss Georgia (Henderson, she
became the bride of Mr. R. E, Beattie
in May, 1900, tlie wedding taking place
at the Reclamation Farm, Porthlll,
where she bad come from Oak Lake. \
Man., to be with a brother. Mr. and
Mrs. Beattie have been residents of
the city continuously ever since, except for about the space of a year or
so when they made their home in Calgary, Besides the bereft husband
there are also left to mourn three
daughters, the Misses Elsie, May and
Jean, who are all well known here.
Mrs. Beattie was a lifelong adherent
to the Presbyterian faith, and was a
charter member of both the Ladles'
Aid and W.M.8. of Knox church here.
Last year she was made a.life member
of the latter organization. An "aged
mother residing in Portage la Prairie
survives her daughter, and a brother
resides in Edmonton. Neither were
able to bo at the funeral. Tlie late
Mrs. Beattie was forty-six years of
The funeral was field on Sunday
afternoon, an impressive servlco at
tlie house being conducted by Rev. T).
McGregor, of Dldsbury. Alta. Tho concourse to thc cemetery where interment was made was tho largest remembered in the history of the city,
about fifty cars joining in tho funeral cortege. Upwards of seventy-five
wreaths and other floral remembrances were ln evidence, further mute testimony to tho wide circle In the city
thai mourns*, the passing ot Mrs-
Rent tic. The pall bearers were Messrs. J, Jackson, E. Home, tl. Leitch.
A. Leltoh, A. Morrison, mid 0. Hunter,
all former Manitoba friends, Rov. D.
McGregor also conducted UlO service
of committal at the graveside.
While essentially n lover of home
and devoted to Us ties, not appearing
very much lu a public way outside of
tllC customary social conventionalities
Mrs. Boat tic nevertheless made some
sleadfasl friends during the years of
her long residence lure. The young |
peoplo especially will miss hor, appro-'
elating tho kindly interest sho has
always taken fn tholr behalf. Tho vast
throng of slleni sympathisers at the
funerul. aud tho extraordinary wealth
of florid tokens In evidence tell surely
that sueh lives arc not lived In vain,
but Spread a lusting Influence and uplift among those with whom they como
In contact.
Tlir; clly al large extends slni'erest
sympathy to those who are mourning
the loss of wife atld mother.   The hiss
to the family circle is indeed Irreparable, and scarcely loss ho to all those

There was a very good attendance
at the regular monthly meeting of the
Women's Institute on Tuesday afternoon last at tho Parish Hall, and
nineteen new names were added to the
membership roll. The main Items on
the program were a talk on Civics by
iho president, Mrs. F. Conatantine,
and a cookery demonstration by Mrs
Baynes, In which the art of making
delectable gingersnapB was < demonstrated. During the course of tho afternoon very acceptable contributions
to the program were given by Miss
Dorothy Shaw, who gave a recitation.
Mrs. Flnlayaon, who rendered a violin
solo, Mrs. J. Thompson, a vocal solo,
and Mrs. Brown who gave a reading.
Afternoon tea was also served before
tlie meeting dispersed.
Tliere was a very good turnout to
the Rod and Gun Club meeting on
Wednesday evening in the city hall,
over thirty members being present, Indicating that a good interest \n manifested in this section in the proper
care of the natural game resources
or tho vicinity. "President E. T. Cooper waa In tho chair, und Mr. F. J.
Gulmont, secretary, was also on hand
to record the proceedings.
A visitor of note ul thu meeting wa«
Mr. C. 11. Robinson, Dominion Fisheries Inspector, with heaihiuartors at
(•errand, B.C., where extensive fish
hatching opt rations aro carried on in
district varieties under his supervision. He touched upon several of the
questions relating to tlie fishing resources of this section, and was able
by giving the olllclal viewpoint In
these matters to put much Illumination before the members. Not being
of tliu type of ofiicial wlio promiscuously promises everything asked for,
but rather looking at every request in
tho light of its merits, Mr. Robinson
was able to put thc Rod and Gun Club
In a much better position to handle
these questions,
He did not fnvor putting in a tish
way on Bull River at the .power com-
any's dam, failing to see the necessity
for same, merely for the sake of the
mile of so of river above the dam
Which it was thought by some was
interfered with, This opinion was
shared by members who expressed
themselves on tlie matter.
In regard to the proposed anglers'
license which the local club has been
pressing for at different times during
tlie past few years, Mr. Robinson was
of tlie opinion that It would take about fifty per cent of the revenue expected from such a tax to collect the
otlier half.
In regard to the restocking of local
waters wllh good angling fish, Mr.
Robinson thought it was .possible that
tlie department might send in a man
for tlie time required, especially If the
local club stood ready to undertake
the local expenses in connection with

slon a motion was put by Mr. Dezall
and seconded by Mr. Gray that tho
Department be asked to send lu a suitable man to assist in restocking the
local waters with cut-throat trout, the
understanding being that the local association will assist in every way pos-
tble. aud bear whatever local expense
there is to be borne.
In connection with the supply ot
Kamloops trout fry which is usually
available, a motion by Messrs Clapp
and Bartholomew authorized the secretary to make application for 500,000
of these for local restocking purposes.
Messrs, Cooper and Clapp. and Dr.
MacKinnon, the committee on a field
day appointed some tlmo back
ported at this meeting. Dr. MacKinnon
suggesting the holding of such an event at Wasa. or some such place, to
take the form of a gopher hunt. The
idea Is to put up a competition, president versus vice-president, and the
losers on a count of tails to put up a
supper. A proper set of rules will
be drawn up to cover the event, and
the BUggested dato for such an event
was Wednesday the 20th, or the week
following, the 27th. The scope ot
this Interesting event will likely bo
widened lo include crows, hawks and
other vermin, feathered and furred.
The multifarious regulations in regard to the carrying of firearms liavo
to bo considered iu connection with
an event of this kind, however, and it
was found necessary to secure a permit for transporting the guua by car
to the grounds, in nddltlou to the permit for thc possession of firearms in
the first place, aud the game license
lt was decided to seek for a comprehensive permit from Ilie Game Conservation Board to cover any field
days of thir. nnture which might be
held ihmiglioiit the season, the club
undertaking lo notify the provincial
police when (hey nro being hold.
The matter of taking up with trap
shooting was also brought up by the
president, who had been delegated to
on the necessary outfit
A meeting of the Cranhrook Golt
Club was held at the Clubhouse on
Saturday afternoon of last week, April
Reports wore received from several
committees appointed ut the annual
meeting last November. The matter
uf dues, concerning which there has
been some llttlo misapprehension, wus
taken up, and the com in i tee whicli
had the question in hund brought iu
its recommendations, which were voted on. The dues ure tu remain us to
present, it was decided, namely $16
for gentlemen and $10 fur ladies.
The present membership of the club
Stands at a little over eighty, but it
is hoped it will be considerably increased this season. The interest ol
tho younger people in tlie game is
especially sought. It may not be
generally recognized that tliis district
enjoys splendid natural advantages
for golfing, being blessed far above
many other .places in tho province in
the matter of climatic conditions, layout of the course, and many otlier re
specie. The fine 9-hole course fs now
being fenced, which will ensure lt
being kept in good condition. The
'property was purchased by the club
lust year from the Canadian Pacific*
Railway Co., and could provide if ne
cessary an eighteen hole courso with
out necessitating the removal of any
of the existing greens. The links ure
in fine shape at the present time, and
tho game is already going strong for
tho season.
Mr. Louis Anderson, thc new club
professional, who arrived here tliis
week, has already looked over the
course, and is greatly pleased with
tlie local golfing conditions, and Tian
expressed the view that great possibilities are ln sight In connection wltt.
tlie course. Members and prospective
members of the club are reminded that
Mr. Anderson brought with him a
good stock of clubs, balls, etc., and
they will do well to get In touch with
him before making any definite steps
In the matter of .securing equipment
for tho game.
There is to be a meeting of the Golf

Tlie first session of the new Legis
lature of the province of British Columbia, came to an end on Saturday,
vhen tiie usual prorogation proceed-
ngs were gone through,
The great result of the session of
tourse is the Liquor Control Bill, based on the result of the plebiscite last
full to repeal the existing prohibition
act. The new liquor law will probably go into force within a month or
so, thuugli up lo the present no ap-
polntmentH havo been announced for
the nositions called for by the new
New Legislation, in the form of
amendments to the constitution of the
province, introduced shortly before the
House prorogued included amendments to permit tlie addition ot Hon.
.Mrs. Smith to the cabinet as a minister without portfolio; tlie elimination
ot the 10 per cent. Increase in the
amusement tax granted to tiio municipalities two years ago, but which
tho latter failed to take advantage of;

inability of tho residents to carry

the Poll Tax Act, wheroundcr no poll

has paid or is liablo to pay any municipal collector any poll tnx for the
current year. Another amendment
provides for increased Indemnities to
members of the house, the "salaries"
of tlie private representatives being
raised from $1,600 to   $2,000.     The
remlor himself will gel $9,000 instead
of $7,500, as at present, while the
leader of the opposition will bo given
a llttlo boost from $1,500 to $2,000
which, along with this indemnity of
?2.000, will glvo him an annuity of
$4,000. The ministers' remuneration
will be increased from $6,000 to $7,-
500, Tiie salury or the Speaker of the

The experiment of holding more
frequent general board of trude meetings was suggested at the recent annual meeting. The first of these
meetings was held on Tuesday evening last, and while the attendance was
small, only about a dozen showing
this should not be taken as a criterion, tliere being a number of otlier
meetings on that same evening.
Enqu.ry had been made by the secretary of the board of trade in Leth-
bridgo, Calgury and Blalrmore asking
if any steps were being taken towards
pressing for the resumption of the
full daylight Crow train service. Tht
Fernie board has been in touch with

the matter of oil sprinkling on the

that use tliis method of street treatment in tlie summer. When the data
is uvailable, tho city council will again be approached.
Tentative plans were discussed for
the holding of some excursions out Into* the surrounding district with thc
idea uf getting better acquainted with

The lecture given last Sunday evening in the Rex Theatre by Miss Ma-
garet Pollen on the origin and history
of old lace attracted practically a full
house, and tlie lecture on a sometnhat

appreciated.     Mr. U. J. Spreull presided, and Introduced Miss Pollen, making some  reference to the subject
matter of the lecture, as welt as the
good cause In which it was held, the
"Save the Children Fund."   Miss Pol
len devoted tlie first twenty minutes
or so to a talk on the development of
thc art of lacemaklug, from the early
times down to the present, remarking
on all the different phases that the unique art had passed through.      The
lantern slides were reproductions of
specimens In a valuable collection belonging to Miss Pollen, in the collection and classifying of which many
years ot effort have been put, till at
the present time the collection stands
as one ot the most valuable now extant.    Many people, to whom previous
to this lecture the collection of lace
was more or less an abstruse mutter
now have a good idea ot the Intense
human interest attaching to its various aspects.    At the conclusion of
the lecture a vote of thanks was moved to Miss Pollen by Dr. Groen, and
heartily endorsed.

Hon. Mr. Patullo, minister of lands,

grounds it would be impossible to

again to be the main feature on the
day's program. Voluminous correspondence comprising letters and wires
between the G.W.V.A., Mr. W. Uren,
of Victoria, owner of the grounds, and
Mr. Gurd of Vancouver, solicitor acting in the matter, was read, the result
being that the committee has received
permission trom Mr. Uren himselt to
make use of the grounds for the one

Mr. G. Hogarth and Dr. J. W. Rutledge reported in regard to the race
card program for the day and it is
apparent that if the right amount of
money is hung up In purses, the men
with the good horses will be interested. The general feeling was that if
possible thc race prizes should be In
creased to meet the higher freight
rates and other increased charges
which the racing men will have to
meet. Some steps were to be taken
during tlie week to ascertain what
finances are likely to be available from
subscriptions, and the racing purses
will be fixed accordingly. While recently In Calgary Mr. Hogarth took

THURSDAY, APRIL 7tll, 1921
After two weary months of
toll, discord, and bitterness the
Moderation Bill has received its
third reading and taken its
place amongst tlie statutes of
the province. Up to the eleventh hour effort was made to
include a beer clause. The sponsors of this clause believed
that it waB in the interests of
the bill, the government, and
the people, that such a clause
lie introduced. At present It
looks as if hard liquors are to
be boosted at the expense of
the malt beverages. The bill
will become operative about the
first of May Indicating the government must have all the appointments and machinery in
hand for the carrying out of the
Act. From many quarters there
is doubt about the working of
the bill. Few are optimistic,
and to say the least this indicates a strong probability of
failure. No one wanted the responsibility of the tiling, and
the chances are that no one
will stand responsible for it
now that it is on the statute
book. It Is admitted on every
hand that the Prohibition Act
was a failure because it was
not enforced as strictly as was
possible. The question readily
arises, will the new act have
any better chance? Time alone
will tell. The province will face
the liquor question again, without doubt, at no distant date,
when the government will pay
the price for Its weakness be
fore the plebiscite. The history
of all governments playing fast
and loose with moral and social
questions is a history of disaster
and defeat. A bold open policy
In the first instance would have
commanded respect and might
have brought untimately much
strength to the government.
From Victoria we arc reminded
that tbe success of the new act
depends upon the people standing behind It. But this is not
altogether true. It is rigid enforcement that is needed, not
merely the people standing behind It. The vote In the province In 1916 Indicated that the
people were behind prohibition
sentiment then, and if tliere is
the same laxity in enforcing the
moderation act as in the case
of prohibition, it will undoubtedly lead to relegating the form
er to the discard and reviving
the latter.
advisability, of defining a new
province composed of Northern
B.C. and an adjacent section of
tlie Yukon territory. In the second case, a group of Victorians
led by several members of the
city council are agitating for the
withdrawal of Vancouver Island from the rest of the prov-
nce, and. in fact, it has been
suggested further that It might
be well for the Island to withdraw fr6m the Dominion and
revert to the status of a crown
colony, as in former days. Whether these movements for secession will bear any fruit remains to be seen, but they are
both indicative of a feeling not
by any means restricted to
these areas only. Northern B.C.
and Vancouver Island both believe that their interests could
be better served and developed
if they were politically independent of southern B.C. and the
mainland. Apparently these
sections are not satisfied with
things as they were. In sonic
measure the interior has this
attitude also. The lower mainland has failed, apparently, to
prove its professed interest in
the Island, the northern section of the province, and the
interior. Every once in a
while some effort is put forth
to proclaim that such an interest exists, but it is never sustained to the point where any
great advantage comes to thc
sections mentioned. Much
more effort muBt be put forth
on that part of the lower mainland if such agitations as those
referred to are to be buried, or

in this all the more reason

more favorably for co-operation. Selfish concern must
give place to more consideration for the welfare of the province as a whole if agitations
for separation are to cease, and
the province as a whole is to
prosper. The population of the
province is certainly not large
enough to be split into sections
at present. Costs of government are already too burdensome to be increased, but bitter
fruit may develop in later years

Tlmt section of the press, which sees

The economics of tbo railway situation are difficult for tho public to understand. Tho problem, proper, developed in tlie early years uf tho Great
War, when bankruptcy faced several
privately owned railways. Tbo question was whether the government
should go on assisting theso lines, or
whether It should embark on an
"ownership" venture. Tho govern-
ment decided that It was not practi-
:uble to assist further tho roads concerned, for tho reason that such action
would leavo the control ln the hands
or those who really constituted a minority interest, lt decided to take over
the railways tbat required assistance
as going concerns, to mergo them with
the lines it already owned, in one
great system, in order that operating
expenses might he reduced as much
as possible and the service unified.

Without regard to their political leanings, and tlu. basic principle- tbat
Hut.' should be no political interfer-
enco with the management, was adopted. A fundamental of the plan was
competition. This great government-
owned railway and Its privately-owned
competitor were to give a dual service
to every important community, competing in service and In principle of
ownership, hut on a corporate basis.
To Implement this plan, the government lines, previously operated hy the
Department of Railways and Canals,
were removed from the control of the
cabinet minister, and their management pluced in the hands of a Board
of Directors, appointed by the government when tho Canadian Northern
capital slock was acquired in the fall
of 1918. The same board was asked
by the Mlnlstor of Railways, as Re-
culver, to take over the management
of tho lirand Trunk Pacific lines (August 23rd, 1920.) This was done.
When iiie Grand Trunk, proper, got
into the same kind of difficulty that
had beset the Canadian Northern and
tho U-T.l'., thu plan was broadened
lo take In Uie G.T.R.
WUtli such a definite plan, and in
view of the progress that has been
mnde in working it out to date, it
seems hardly proper to refer to the
railway problem as if it were unsolved. During the past two years thi
Canadian Northern and the former
government-owned lines huve been
thoroughly consolidated in management under the collective title of Canadian National Railways; and since
September lst, 1920, the Grand Trunk
Pacific lines have been operated as a
part of this Bystem. The bringing in
of tbo lines of the Grand Trunk Halt
way to the family of publicly-controlled roads will greatly strengthen the
National System. Whjlo some co-ordination with the G.T.IL lines in the east
has been accomplished, and has been
of some benefit, yet the larger advantages will not be secured until a complete consolidation of management has
taken place. So in everything that
has been done by way ot consolidation
to the present, the original plan has
been followed and the same principle
adhered to, throughout.
Keeping these facts In view, it may
be advantageous to examine the return
for the year just past, remembering
also that for 1920 the title, Canadian
National Railways, refers only to the
system mado up of the former Canadian Government Railways, {Intercolonial. Prince Edward Island, National Transcontinental and some branch
lines,) and the Canadian Northern
tine, comprising 13,854.9 miles.
The operating deficit on these railways was $26,708,456.23. That portion of the press, opposing the solution of the railway problem adopted
by tiio government, say, in effect, that
it would have been better to not have
run the railways at all than to bave
Incurred such n loss. That is where
the economic side of tho railway situation is overlooked. A. T. Hadley
says in his "Railway Transportation,"
and he is an undoubted authority on
the subject*.
"A railroad differs from many other
business enterprises in the existence
of a large permanent investment,
which can bo used for one narrowly
de fined purpose and for no other. The
capital once invested, must remain."
No one has said that Canadian National Railways (or even parts ot the
system! will never be required. Those
who cavil contend that the lines are
not required at present. Here let It
be said that It is much cheaper to operate tho lines and Incur tbo Iosbcs
which 1980*8 abnormal conditions produced than It would be, if it were
possible, to give up operating the lines
altogether. For one thing, the fixed
charges would bo tho same whether
the linos were worked or not. And a
great part of the maintenance of wa>
expenses would go on l* the road waa
to be eventually used whether operated or not, because "tho repairs have
to be mnde with almost equal rapidity
whether the material wears out, rusts
out, or washes out," as sayB Hadley.
Tho maintenance of way and structures expenses alono were $34,759,-
329.00, or $8,000,000.00 more than the
deficit; so that it ls not an exaggeration to say It would cost moro to not
oporato the National System than It
does to operate It.
Tho competitive feature, also, must
always he remembered. It must be realized that far below that point where
It pays a railway to do Us own business, lt pays to take business from a
competitor. Tho National Hallways'
rolallVH cost of operation Is higher
than tlmt of its competitor only on account of the lessor volume handled,
but for certain specific traffic raove-

Commissioners, yet the principle   re-

early cultivation
of si:ku beds
(Experimental Farms Note)
We have felt for many years that
farmers have not studied their soil
conditions early enough ln the spring.
Most of our soils run and puddle during the winter months und the sooner
we ure able to disturb that condition
tho better. In some places the time
may vary three or four weeks on various soils. Light sandy soils with
a southern exposure are ready to cultivate as soon as the frost and snow
have left them and a wind lias dried
tlie surface. On heavier land some
days or even weeks must elapse before we can cultivate on a northern
exposure where sun does not dry our
soils and frost does not como out so
quickly. When our soils are ready to
cultivate cultivation should begin and
each farmer should study his own
land and know Just how soon he
should start. There are somo general
rules given about laud steaming and
fences dancing and the blue bird you
seo sittlug on a telephone wire, but
unless the farmer studies tbe physical
condition of the laud he is not tanning
intelligently. Tho reasuns for early
cultivation are many.
lst.   It avoids caking of the land.
2nd.   lt conserves moisture.
3rd.   Adds warmth to the seed bed.
4th. Puts the land in best possible
shape to take ln rain.
5th. Futs our seed bed ln such excellent condition that small or large
seeds are surrounded by soil particles
and moisture.
Oth.   No air pockets In tlie soil.
7th. Crops can be seeded earlier
and take advantage of early moisture
to make quick growth and establish
strong root system.
Wo should alt remember that a soil
well supplied with humus works much
earlier than a sticky soil and with this
in view remember that whatever rotation you use on a farm one year must
supply humus ln some form or another. Manure is not rich In elements of
plant food but to bring soil Into good
physical condition it haB no equal.
Keeping physical condition in mind
ut all times, make an earnest to start
cultivation at tho earliest moment.

Canada's Timber Crops -A Great Possession
It ia commonly agreed that Canute hold*, tha largest and finest
lruas of spruce timber of any coun-
;ry In the wurld. At the same time &'
the total forest resourced of the 1*3
Dominion are less than one-third of $|
the forest resources held by the
United -States, and Siberia outranks
ill other cuuntriea in the vastness oi
Its timber supplies. As regards the
forests of Canada, there lias come
about a remarkable transformation
in the public point of view during
the past fifteen years. In the days
when timber industries were only
moderately important and when the
lack of accurate information concerning the forest resources fixed
upon the public mind a fictitious
view as to the supposed "inexhaustibility" of the storehouse of timber,
it was not surprising that conservation policies should have been mostly
jf sentimental rather than practical
ralue. Investigation has demon-
Itrated that tht forest area is very
much more contracted than wns first
thought to be the case. It was also
learned that, contrary to common be-
lief, forests once burned down or devastated by the axe did not usually
reconstitute themselves except at incredibly long periods. On the basis
of this new information, the man-
on-the-street was not slow to recommit that unless the rate of forest
destruction were abated by public
laws and vigorous administration
and an awakened' sense of public responsibility, Canada would sacrifice
a great industrial magnet and would
put beyond reach the essential wood
materials without which the most
ordinary business of the country
cannot be undertaken.
Nowadays, with the enormous increase in the manufacture and use
of print paper for newspaper purposes and the adaptability of pulp
to a thousand ot the every-day necessities of mankind, the timber-covered
county has coma to be looked upon,
not as a barrier to agricultural development, but as an Incredibly rich
asset, capable of attracting industrial capital and providing employ
ment for new population and con
tributing directly to the prosperity
of the country in which it is situated.
An excellent example of how a
forest area, which yesterday waa a
wilderness, cgn become in a few
months the Bcene of a highly prosperous industrial town, is supplied
by the history of Iroquois Fails in
Northern Ontario. Only a few years
ago the townsite was occupied by a
few settlers and travellers. To-day,
by the establishment of a pulp and
paper industry, 2,500 men are given
regular employment and the wage
distribution each year is over $8,-
The term, "forest conservation" is
frequently misinterpreted to indi
cate that the conservationist would
place a Chinese wall about the
standing timber and slow down the
wheels of all wood-using Industries.
This, however, is the antithesis of
the aim of the true conservationist.
The desire is not to prevent tha
utilization of timber trees but lo encourage such a system of forest fire
protection accompanied by such
scientific methods of limber cutting
as should maintain tbe forest area=
as a productive source for all time
to come, ln the past, the areas cut
over were In many cases turned
Into permanent barrens. Increasing
yalue of timber and the present
enormous costs of establishing
pulp and paper mill have rendered
necessary in the syes of all progressive forest owners a changed method
regular intervals. The forest must
he "anchored" as securely as the
mill dam.
Of the totnl area of Canada,
about eighty per cent, is designed as
a permanent forest-growing estate
and for that reason quite useless
for agricultural development. This
means, of course, that over one-
and-a-half million square mites can
return no useful services unless it is
mnde to grow timber. The weakness
in Canada's national position as a
forest-growing country at the present time is not the scarcity of natural forest land but the low average
production of timber per acre characteristic of the areas east of the
Rocky Mountains.
In the radically-changed economic
conditions which have automatically
placed n high market value upon
every square mile that produces timber, the annual damage to the forest
resources through the Bingle cause
of fire, takes on a more and more
sinister aspect. Forest engineers
are agreed tbat while the axe has
cleared possibly one hundred thousand square miles of the Dominion,
the Fire Fiend has stripped fully one
million square miles, that the forests have not Bprung up successfully

ources of Canada are regarded at
having been taken from us. In the
province of British Columbia, ac-
coi'ding to the Commission of Conservation, twenty-two times as much
limber has been burned as was put
to use by all the wood-using industries of that province. The three
prairie provinces have been robbed
of eighty per cent, of their forest
resources through unrestricted fires
:md the proportion of loss in the
provinces of Ontario, Quebec, New
Mrunswick and Nova Scotia is only
slightly less appalllftff. Were the
causes of forest fire attributable to
some purely accidental source, as
lightning, the record might be accepted with some resignation. It Is
it well demonstrated fact, however,
that ninety per cent, of all forest
fires are of human origin. The settler in his land clearing operations,
the camper and his inextinguished
camp fire, the smoker with his lighted cigarette, match or pipe ashes,
have accounted for a serious part of
the nation's timber sacrifice,; While
the forest protection systems of tha
Dominion and Provincial Governments have improved vastly during
recent years, there can come no adequate remedy until the individual
citizen decides for himself to adopt
personal care and vigilance as part
of his definition of good citizenship.

spring is early nnd summers are dry,
Uie sprouting of potatoes beforo plant
Ing, particularly where it is intended
to dig potatoes for an early market,
should be much more general in Canada Hum it has been.
In 101.0. Irish Cobbler potatoes not
sprouted yielded ot tlie rate of 418
bushels per acre, while thoso which
Imd been sprouted yielded 50G bushels
per acre, or a difference of 88 bushels. In t1i*s case potatoes were laid
out for sprouting on April 21st and
planted on May 19th, or for but four
weeks. It is usually best to allow six
weeks for sprouting. Not only Is the
yield greater when potatoes are sprou
ted, but tho crop reaches a market
able size earlier in the season. The
sooner early potatoes aro on the market nfter they aro rnurketable tbe
more money will he made out of them
as a rule.
To "Sprout" potatoes, medium sized
tubers nre selected beforo they have
sprouted to nny extent In the cellar,
and are either placed in shallow boxes
or trays, preferably with the seed end
up, or spread shallow on the floor of
a room where thero Is a bright light-
Either method will give almost equally good results.   At first the temperature should be cool enough to prevent
iprouting.   Tho skin will soon   turn
green and become rather tough.   The
temperaturo is now raised enough for
the tubers to sprout, and when treated
as described  two or    three    strong
sprouts will develop from    tbo seed
ond, tho oilier eyes remaining   dormant.    Growth will thus be concentrated lu these few shflnls nnd, as a
rule, there will be a larger proportion
of mnrkotnblo potatoes where    there
nro a few good  shoots than   where
tliere arc many.   If the potatoes   art
given plenty of light and the placo
where they aro kept Is fairty cool, the
; I rouls will become very sturdy and
stron'gly attached to tho tuber, will be
green In color, and will not be broken
)*• fn handling untess very .*nrelessly
ustd.  Thus given a Btart before plant-
idly nnd tubers  will  develop    more
quickly   frnm   sprouts   which   have
grown slowly in a bright, cool place
than from sprouts which have grown
in n dark place, the latter, moreover,
usually breaking off at the time of]
planting.    Sprouts should be    about
two Inches In length at the time .of
Tho warmest and best drained
soil that is available should be used
for extra enrly potatoes, and the sets
should be planted shallower than for
tho majn crop so that they will get
tbe advantage of the beat from the
surface soil. In Great Britain the potatoes are planted wholo when sprouted, growth being more vigorous when
this method Is followed, but this Is
not necessary in order to get an   In-
plant early; when the spring is late
and autumn frosts late, early planting
Is not so important; where the spring
is late and autumn frosts are early,
plant as soon as soil Is dry enough.

The commissioner for Dominion

Banff to Lake Louise has now been
finished. The communication however,
adds that the westerly ten miles of tliis
road will not yet be officially thrown
open to motor traffic, pending tho undertaking of some surface work. It
'.s expected that this will be carried out
early in the spring and tho road declared open for motor traffic during
June. There should therefore be no
difficulty ln making tbe trip from

after it fell into the hands of a Turkish slave of Illegitimate origin, a line
known as the "Slave King" sat on the
throne of Delhi for eighty years, during which period the desire to possess
the Talisman amounted to a frenzied
obsession. Suddenly it disappeared in
the chaos that brought the slave dynasty to an end in 1290.
The Koh-i-noor later scintillated
without bloodshed through the reign
of Shah Jehan down to his son Aur-

To-verier, the French jeweller, who
later wrote a descriptive account of
it for the delectation of Europe.
After being tossed about like a shuttle-cock in the Delhi loot, and remaining in the Punjab, this most celebrated diamond in the world now rests on
a purple velvet cushion among England's crown jewels in the grim old

Almost everyone has heard or read
of Dr. Grenfell, tho Labrador missionary doctor, but few have heard of tbe
perils and adventures of hia hazardous
A sample of the difficulties the
doctor had in attending patients ls related in what lie culls "The Ice-Pan
Adventure," which shows heroism
and resource iu most desperate
On Easter Sunday, April 21st. 1908,
while It was still winter iu North
Newfoundland, everything still covered with snow and lee, returning to
the hospital at St. Anthony nften|
morning service, hi' was mot by the
Hews tjint a dog team had como sixty
miles from the south lo got a doctor
for au urgent cuso, It was tlmt of a
young muii suffering from acute hone
disnusc of thu thigh.
Tho doctor hud an exceptionally
good dog loam for sagacity nud endurance, Moody, Watch, Spy, Doc, Brin,
Jerry, Sue, and Jack. So powerful
woro they that the doctor's team farj
outstripped tiio tired messenger team
on Us return journey, Tog and rain
softened the snow", making travelling
difficult. The second day's journey of
40 miles was partly over an arm of
the sea. The messenger team was on
ahead, to wait at the other side of tin
Rain fell; the sea rolling in smash
ed the surface ice; between the ice
pans were great gaping chasms. The
doctor reached a small island fn the
middle of the hay over an Ice bridge,
and from that point had only four
miles to the opposite shore, a> saving
of several miles if he could make it.
The doctor flung himself on his koma-
tlk and the dogs started for the rocky
promontory, four miles away. Within
a quarter of a mile of the objective
the wind dropped, and he found that
he was travelling over ice composed
of tiny bits formed by the poundng
together of the large pans by the
heavy seas. The whole field of ice
was loosening so rapidly that no retreat was now possible.
He shouted to the dogs to make a
dash for the shore, they scented danger, hesitated, and the komatlk sank
in the soft slob, while the dogs, in
their attempts to pull harder, also
sank. The doctor remembering a man
hud heen drowned in this way, cut his
traces, retaining tho leader's trace
round his waist. The leader dog had
found a slight point of vantage In a
pteco of snow packed and froitn together, and, looking back seemed to
grin with satisfaction. The rest wore
bogged like tiles in treacle.
With difficulty Dr. Grenfell worked
his way to tho llttlo Island of slob
leo, and lay with ha dogs around him.
llrlMng Out to Sen
The fate of all seemed to be that of
drowning, as the frozen snow drifted
seaward. Tho doctor had lost cap,
gloves and overalls when he tried to
urgfi tho dogs by their sealskin traces,
to make for a firmer block of Ice.
Nothing would make them move,
though thrown into the water.
At last he managed to get all but
one on to this new haven of refuge,
and found they were drifting souward
on what was uot tea but frozen snow,
which the sea would break up. Would
the team ahead come back and look
for them? There was <flily one chance
!jj a thousand they would.be seen.
The doctor cut down his long hoots
nnd mnde a kind of jacket to shield
him from the rising wind- Ho saw
that ho must have the skins of some
of his dogs if he was to live out the
night  without  freezing.
Ho envied the dead beasts, now beyond their troubles; by night they
woro ton miles on their seaward vfy-
ngc. driven hy a west wind, the doc-
lothed in throe dog skins. At Intervals he removed his clothes, ond

lie cuddled close to tliu biggest dog,
drew the dog skins over him und tried
to sleep. He awoke at midnight shivering, tin* wind rising, and still bearing them steadily to sea. Then followed a calm, and from the frozen
legs of tiie dead dogs he made a kind
of flagstaff with Ills shirt as signal
flag, and for hours he waved the extemporized flag without a sensation
of fear.
How the Rescue was Made
All attempts to get some sort of
light failed. By and by came the glitter of uu oar. He lunl been observed.
This wus a rescue party, and as It
drew near someone shouted "don't get
excited, keep on the pan where you
The doctor remarks that they were
more 0X0 ted than himself, "and had
they only known, as I did, tho sensations of a bath Ip tho ley water,
Without u chance of trying one's self
afterwards, they would not have expected me to wish to follow the exam-
plo of the Apostlo Peter-"
Not a word was spoken as the first
man grasped iiis hand, from the rescuing party. Some hot tea waB welcome, the dogs were hoisted on hoard,
nnd tho difficult return journey was
mudo through floating Ice. He was
taken like a log to St. Anthony, his J
feet being so frozen that he could not
walk. He wus kept In hed for a time,
with frozen hands and feet, hut eventually recovered

A. B. Smith, secretary of the Farmers' Institute, has received word by
wire from Mr. Whituey-GrlflUhs, secretary of the Farmers' Institute Advisory Board, that the cheap powder
regulations, designed to help thy man
on the land with clearing operations,
went into effect on April 1st.
The procedure to be adopted is as
follows: the powder will be purchased at the ordinary price, and later
a rebate will be allowed by the government to bring the price down to
$5.00, on the receipt of a form duly
filled In and certified by tlie secretary
of the farmers' Institute, thut the powder was used for tho special purpose.
This regulation was designed to prevent the possibility of anyone buying
In a supply of powder whlcb 1b not
for Immediate use.
In connection with this matter,
Hon. Mr. Barrow, minister of agriculture, stated In the house that this
voto of $30,000 was to provide cheap
stumping powder for land clearing
purposes, and that it was proposed
that the farmers should buy direct
from their own dealer or the powder
companies, and the settlers, after having used tho powder would be required to sign a statement setting forth
the amount used, and that upon that
statement being completed and for
warded, the government would allow
the rebate. By that method the smalt
man would receive, all he requires,
while the larger Tarmer will be prevented from securing powder and storing lt up. Provision will be made, also, to prevent the use of powder on
land the cost of clearing which
would be too high compared with the
value of the cleared property.
Incidentally Mr. Smith Is Informed
that the somewhat facetious wire
which went forward from some ardent
cheap powder enthusiast In this city
to Mr. Bowser a couple of weeks or so
ago, wherein lt was stated that the
provision for cheap powder was more

"Man can't Bleep out of doors without (reeling to doath or getting the

clumsiest excuse of nll the creatures

Insects have done and art doing a
great deal or Injury to tho forests of
Canada. The forest services, foderal
and provincial, uro carrying out protective measures, and the federal department of agriculture bas a staff of
entomologists who devote all their energies to tbis work. Many Ingenious
methods are being devised but the
public will be most Interested In ono
thing that stands out In these Investigations, namely, that the preservation
of bird life Ib one means of reducing
tho numbers of forest Insects. Thoro
may be some birds which do not eat
forest Insects, but generally speaking
lt Is true that, tbe more birds, the
fewer Insects. Canadian boys aud!
young men In the past havo been too
prone to go Into the woods wtth a gun
and shoot at everything In sight without thinking of the Injury they might
cause. Canadian forests are fine
places for healthful recreation, but let
those who go into them he careful not
to burn them up ond not to destroy
unthinkingly the non-game birds
which are forest policemen. Let the
young people shoot ub much as thoy
like, but with a camera, not a gun.
Know and believe In yovreelf,   and
whet othere think will not ilaturb you.
