Klko on Tuesday, Dominion Day. A
special train had heen chartered nnd
a merry crowd gathered at the station at !> a.m. and arrived at Elko

Tbe day proved to be ideal tor tlie
occasion, being sunshiny and warm,

The weather was line and a goodly
number attended to witness the
games und athletic events, the most
iUn»produelllg of which was probably

got 1 angled up with Allan, who
came in ahead, with Gamble second.
Myers made a grand spurt, hut fagged

statement of the editor would ap-

that have boon thrust upon the Canadian municipality, the writes con'
tinucs: "These responsibilities, have
been occasioned by the unprecedented
inrush of population, particularly into the Western provinces. Population and business centres in certain
localities and had to be accommodated. This has meant a large expend!*

Last Monday morniig at fl.80
o'clock (he provincial agricultural
commission met at the government
building in Cranbrook for the taking
of evidence along the line ot anything
of interest to the farmers. There
were a large number of farmers in
attendance. Those compasing \\\4
commission were: W. II. Hay ward,
M.P., of Duncan; J, J. Campbell, of
Nelson; .1. Kidston, of Vernon; S.
Shannon, of Cloverdalc; W. Duncan,
of Comox; C. H. Christcnscn, of Victoria.
Messrs. Campbell and Shannon
started for Baynes Lake via automobile in the morning mid after losing
their way and meeting with a mishap, returned to Cranbrook and made
a fresh start again in the afternoon.
The commission left Tuesday afternoon for Wasa via automobile where
they were scheduled to hold a ses-'
sion at seven o'clock in the evening,
proceeding then to Wlnhcrmerc*        '
The first witness called on Monday
morning was    Mr. John Levett, one
of Cranbrook's most successful farmers.        Mr. Levitt,     In his evidence,
stated   lu* had    farmed for a    large!
number of    years   near Fort Steele. I
He had made weekly trips into town
delivering butter, eggs and other pro-'
dure in   season and had always been'
able to dispose of all be bad at   pro-'
litrtble ami satisfactory  prices.     His
greatest difficulty bad been to      get
reliable labor.      He   had to pay (SO
prr month nnd hoard and occasional-'
ly more and very unsatisfactory help
in main eases.    ln clearing land    he
estimated it at. that time to      have
cost (126 per acre. j
In reply to the chairman's qfics-1
Hon he thought that some system
whereby the actual practical farmer
could obtain money at easy rales'
over long terms would go a great
way towards getting thc right kind
ot people to go on the land and improve it.
Mr. A. B. Smith, who Is president
of the Farmers' Institute, was lhe
next witness called. He stated tha|*
a good many new settlers hnd located within the district during the past
few years but that a-Rood many bad
also gone away again. I.unds in the
district were valued at from 55ft to
Ji2r> per acre. Products usually
commanded a good price on the local
market. He was informed by Mr.
Hayward, chairman of the commission, of the success of nn egg-depot
which had heen established in Mr.
Ilayward's home town. The first
year 31,000 dozen eggs were bandied,
tho second year 81,000 dozen eggs
were handled, tbe second year 81,000
dozen eggs were marketed and in
1012 151,000 dozen eggs were handled
and the amount this year from present indications would exceed 250,-
000 dozen. He recommended the es
tarnishing of these depots in all parts
of the province, Mr. Smith rccom*
mended the following subjects as being of most interest to the farmers
of the district at thc present time.
First.—Thc penalizing of low grade
stallions and the bomising of pure
bred stock and asking the government
to co-operate in a movement to have
only one struin of stock bred in   the
district, which would work out to Farmers' Institute, said that stump-

man, reported that one man at Wardner had cleared seventy acres of land
between seasons one year by burning
the stumps. lie had used only five
cases of powder. He said that nineteen acres planted at Wardner bad
yielded 300 tons of mixed vegetables.
One half of this tract was irrigated
and the other half worked Under dry
farming methyls and no difference
could be distinguished in the yield,
lie had found orchards in various
parts of the district killed by the use
ol too much water. Five acres

Prairie two years ago were in a fine,

been UScd.
The live and ten acres tracts sold
next io the city were valued according lo tlieir proximity to the city.
The terms of sale for these lands
were a small payment down and a
small payment each month, and be
thought they were to be classed as
any other business proposition. A

money was doomed to fail. His

the government throw this open for

way lhat speculators would be eliminated and only bona (Wo Peltiers be
allowed to file and secure rights to
such land.
Fifth—That more work be done on
settler's roads and not s<, much done
nn the automobile highways.
ira R.  Manning     stated that pota-
•rlion that there were 100,000 acres
of lands in « radius of ten miles of
Cranbrook on which timber leases
had expired and which ought to be
thrown open for pre-emption. He
thought that 511 per cent of it would
prove to be good farming land. All
land in this country required two
or three years cultivation before it
was in good shape for planting fruit
trees, clover, etc. Then* were late
frosts until two years ago but only
very light late frosts in the past
two years.    Strawberries had   been

es and all larger fruits were shipped
in. More local fruit could tic purchased if the growers knew more
about packing and were provided
with the necessary crates and boxes.
The average prices paid for these
fruits on the local market for the
past three years were as follows:
Strawberries, $3.00 per crate; raspberries, per crate, $2.50; gooseberries
and red currants, $2.40; black currants, $3.00. Eggs ranged in price
from 10 cents to 80 cents and had
been known to he as high as $100
for strictly fresh laid eggs. Eggs
could be shipped in from tbe prairie
"at from 7 to 2il cents less per dozen
at all seasons of the year. There had
been a surplus ol fresh eggs for two
months this year, which bail never
been known before but the price bad
not been lowered. Eggs were now
■in cents and could be purchased from
the prairie nt 30 cents, These were
sometimes good but at certain seasons of the year very bad. New
Zealand ami Ontario butter was sold
very little, local butter being made.
Forty-five cents was n high price for
butter at any season. Apples were

pack was also .superior, and the

Mr. Palmer owns land near Cranbrook, only a few acres, which he
thought cost $10ft per acre to clear

and that it required two to three
years of such work after clearing he-
fore the land would raise much of

they could get a crop the first yeai

he would rather work endeavoring to

One of the growing Institutions in
Cranbrook is the Fast Kootenay
Greenhouse company, which was
started only about a year ago, being
financed by a company of local capitalists, Most ol those who put in
money at the start have withdrawn from the company at a profit
and the control is now in the hands
of .Mr. <:. li Wiihs, ibe manager,
and one silent partner.
The company has inst completed
the erection of a new building which
is covered with 2,000 square feet of
glass aud is divided into two green
houses, IS^xSO feet and 16x34 feet iu
size The- glass used in covering
this building is double thickness and
was placed by the Cranhrook Sash
and Door company, The new build-
inn is several feel higher than ihe
old one and more than doubles Uie
capacity of tbe green houses. Even
with this additional room, Mr. Willis informs us. there will not be
enough room to supply their demand
and they arc contemplating the
erection of another house, somewhere
near thc citv, which will In* live
times tlie capacity of lhe houses now
erected. Tbis will probably be done
a | next year.
An office is being equipped at the
front ot the new building, where displays of hanging baskets, (lowering
puts, etc , will be shown. A cellar
for maturing bulbs has been constructed, where they can be allowed
to slowly mature. New beds of
carnations are being planted. Tbe
demand for this beautiful (tower far
exceeds the capacity %n growing
them. Lettuce and mushroom beds
are also in course of construction and
the company expect to be able to
supply part of the demand for these
vegetable* this winter.
An experienced and practical green
house man is employed by the company and by autumn will Ih* in shape
to supply the demand for cut flowers
of maity different kinds as well as
vegetables peculiarly adapted to hot

Fifty years is a Very short time in
thr* life of a forest. Most ol the
timber being cut in British Columbia
today is over two hundred years old
—some of it over eight hundred.
It takes years to grow trees—not
hours or days.
II we want our trees protected we
must care lor them now. Today is
fifty years 'ago" from th eyear
luli.'j—and that is not very far away.
There is a erisis coming—when lhe
forests which for a century men have]
thought ••ihexhausiible" arc going to
bC greatly  depleted.
We must, prepare for that contingency.
Stop the fires
Stop the waste in logging, milling
and utilization.
Stop ihe Insert and fungus depredations.
Cut timber only when it is "ripe"
—when it will produce as tmi< h Value
as possible In usefulness '" men
I'lant up   the waste plans
Plant the needed shelter belts.
These take tune, thev take men,
I hey take money, but they are
worth it.
France ha*- spent 185,000,000 in
planting trees on watersheds.
Germany spends up to SIS per acre
per annum on some forests, ami gets
gross returns up io $21 per acre,
thus yielding net profits up to $11
per acre every year.
As a whole, German forests
iluce about $2.00 net per acre
Canada spends much less than
cent per acre per annum on the
est lands under management*
If we set thc fire loss against the
timber product, Canada's .forest balance sheet shows an enormous      de-
neit.        ;/
How can Canadians stop the toss-
se, arrest the waste? There Is but
one answer. Public opinion, public
conscience are the only forces thnt
will ever make for progress.

When Summer
Stops the
Most of us can remember the
school lesson in the law of accumulated motion—momentum.
If you exert a pound of pressure against a man in a swing,
you'll start him moving slowly
" to and fro." If you continue
to exert a pound of pressure
against him every time the swing
makes a trip, you'll soon have
him going so high that he almost
turns the whole circle. If you
stop pushing, the momentum will
die out and the swing come to rest
at" dead centre."
Winning trade follows the same
natural laws.
Keep it Going
by Advertising
Advertisements are the force
behind the swing of public favor.
Each new advertisement increases
the momentum. Finally, the accumulated force of these numerous
impulses swings indifference to
the buying point.
If you stop Advertising, you
lose momentum.
The moral of which ia: Don't atop
the business swing in summer. Keep
adding the pounds of  Advertising

Recently, some valuable investigations have been carried on in Ohio
with regard to profits In poultry
keeping. Tbe best results came
from a farm flock of !)ti fowls, which
gave a net profit for the year above
feed and lahor of $237.37, or $2.17
each; the lowest results were from a
town-lot flock of thirty fowls, which
gave a net loss of $27.0(1, or a loss of
93 cents each. Out of twelve town
(locks, four showed a loss, while of
eighteen farm flocks, every one showed a profit, ranging from LU cents
to $2.47 per fowl.
The average number of eggs laid
by each hen on farms was 71 as
compared with 70 in the town flocks.
Tiie profits, therefore, with farm'
flocks did not arise from tbe difference in egg production, hut rather
from the lower cost of feed and labor
and from the methods of management. The cost of feed for twelve
town (locks nnd one commercial
flock averaged fl? cents per fowl
yearly, as compared with an average
ot lil cents on 1*8 farms.
The great difference in favor of the
farm (locks is attributed to a number
of causes, such as the use of the
gleanings from harvest fields, orchard and garden, waste products—
—liktf cabbages and beets from the
storehouse—the usti of extensive pasture, weed seeds and insects, dairy
by-products, and the lower price of
grain consumed by hens off the farms.
Tin* labor cost on farms and in
towns averaged 2R cents and iiO
cents respectively—another great difference in favor ot the farms.
It was also learned that, in both
town and country, the small flocks
gave greater profits than large ones,
that fowls with unlimited range did
better than those partly or wholly;
confined; thnt, to compete successfully with farm flocks, the town DOUl-
tryman must keep high-producing
hens nnd sell at a higher price; that
a poultry system which requires the
keeping of fowls confined or which
necessitates a large amount of per
sonal supervision, has no place on a
general farm; and thnt a heller system of marketing eggs and poultry is
needed—one that will encourage tho
production of a high-grade product
carefully and expeditiously transported to the consumer.

Vancouver, 'lune 30.—Even I lie
Bands of tin; sen are not safe .from
tlie operations of political grafters.
There has Just eomfl to light n ileal
In Conservative politicians ol this
eity, aided ami abetted bj Hon.
Roberli Rogers, minister of puhllo
works, and bj H. ll. Stevens, Ml1,
ini* ihe city nf Vancouver, whieh fur
uuilaein throws Into the shade any-
thlug accomplished in the palmiest
days of Unss Tweed and nfo Rau^ in
New VurlJ City.
For years past, Indeed, ever since.
tluie has been a Yaucuuvei', the
hulldlng supply Dieii of,this city havo
been in the hahll oi pumping sand
from Spanish Hank in English Bay,
off Point Qrey. This is a sand deposit created hy the notion of the
Fraser river and the tides combined,
awl ii provides the only pure building
siiiid within reasonable distance of
tin* city.
The linn ot Champion ami White
hav,. been drcd^in^ this sand for
twenty-two years; that of Thomas
11. McRriilc nml Company have been
doing so for eighteen years past; and
other supply men have been doing thr
same for a lesser time. The result
has been beneficial in two ways. It
has allied in keeping down the size of
the sandbank and thus assisting navigation. It has given building sand
to ihe contractors of thc city nt the
lowest possible price nnd of tho best
quality obtainable on the Pacific
coast. No one was being injured,
except those who cast envious eyes
upon the sandbank; and the eity as a
whole benefited.
This condition lasted for years. But'
tbe sort of men who are looking for
easy money, the "Ruftts Walling-
fords" of Vancouver saw in Spanish
Bank an opportunity for making
money wit hunt working and so,
through II. II- Stevens, M.P.. 1hey
made application to the late minister
nf public works at Ottawa, lion. F.
I). Monk, for a lease of the sandbank,
so as to grab its money-making pos-
sihilltlos for themselves, Bul, to the
credit of .Mr. Monk, the application
was ruthlessly rejected. And [t must
he added that when a similar proposition was put before .Mr. tl. II.
Cowan, K.U., during his term of office as M. 1'. for Vancouver, he declined to endorse it or forward thu
scheme in any way.
Hut the schemers did not lose
heart. With the disappearance of
Mr. Monk from the public works department, thev saw a chance of getting their plans accepted, and when
Hon. Robert Rogers was made minister ol public works they took fresh
hope. They were justified in their
knowledge of that gentleman's disregard for the public interest when
party friends had to be favored, and
so tin* chief promoter of the enterprise, William John 1'aseoe, went t
Ottawa,     planted himself on the
threshold of the public works department and put in uu application for
the leasing of Spanish Bank to the
Silica Sand and 0ravel Company,
Ltd., ns 'he organization of Poacoe
aud his associates is described in 'he
provincial letters patent of incorporation granted to them at Victoria,
Tin* membership id the d in*e tor.it n ol
Ibe company is not known vet, but
iu addition In I'ascoe, who acted as
its agent in Ottawa, it has a Mr
(limn as Its secretary at ils offices
ut I'll Robson street, Vancouver, and
a Mr. Col vin Cray a-s one of its m>
llve members.
Poscoe did not stay iu Ottawa lor
nothing. Aided by II. II. Stevens,
he laid siege lo Rogers, and his siege
was rewarded hy the signing, on
April 2nd, 1913, or a lease granting
to the Silica Sand and Gravel Co.,
Ltd., a license to dredge and take
away sand for building nml other
purposes from Spanish Bank.
Meanwhile the building supply contractors had been dredging away for
sand on Spanish Bank, as usual,
without, any idea that the "get-rich-
i|uick" men were busy, hut they soon
pit a mdr awakening. A week or

In the Kingdom paper jusl. issued
from Ottawa an explanation is made
of the Monroe duel tine, which fo
proven to be the policy ol George
Canning, who was then the British
foreign secretary, ami was adopted
by the United Stales at the instillation ami suggestion of Canning, Th*
policy bus been of Inestimable benefit
for the expansion of Brilisli trad,
and power. It has also neri I 111
means of perpetuating peace on Hit
American continent for the past
ninety-two years. In summing up
Canada's position in relation i,, i
policy, the paper says:
It has frequently been asserted Hint
the United Kingdom has protected
Canada Irom invasion, and,that for
such protection, we ought to be enthusiastically grateful. Lei us now
ask whether the Monroe policy has
not, lor niuely years, protected (W)1
in war hut us against war) all Hie
Spanish American republics, and
whether those countries ought Eur
that reason, to contribute to the
British navy? They should not—he-
cause Hie Monroe policy was adopted
for purely British reasons; because
its principal purpose was lo preserve
and extend British trade, and, al lb*
Same lime, to thwart the ambitious
of International rivals. The Monroe
policy cost the United Kingdom
nothing. On the cnnlimry, il \ leld-
til wealth,     und    naval employment,]
ind power. incidentally, it ben-e-
ited one set uf nations and injured
mother set. Ask Argentine whether,
-Ir ought, lot thai reason, lo scud
635,000,000 in the British admiralty?
In considering tho existence of Canadian obligation, remember, too,
lhat if Canada were a completely independent stale, British policy toward her would be. the same as il is
toward tlie independent slates of
South America, ami for lhe same
reason. Wc would not object lo
that, would wc'.' Wc would not
feel humiliated hy if? Argentine
aud Brazil enjoy the benefit ol it, as
also do Holland and Belgium. They
would not be free from it if Ihey
could. II is. no doUht, strong protection tot thrm, not so much, in war

Canada derives Immense advantage
from Ihe Canning poltcj as held both
hy tho United Kingdom and by tho
I'nited Slates; but our neighbors arc
becoming conscious of the fact that
as Canada grows in strength she
will, iu return and in pursuance of
Hie same excellent policy, be a source
of powerful protection to the United
Slates. Canada would not stand
idly hy and see Japan or China occupy Alaska or Pilgct Sound. Such an
irruption would fundamentally and
forever alter our whole political and
social situation. Unanimously, wc
should assert with Monroe that if
would be Impossible that these nations should "extend Iheir political
system" lo those parts of tin* continent "without endangering our
peace and happiness."
Ami for like reasons, if (lermany
or France proposed lo occupy the
Stale of Maine, Canadians would eagerly assist in their repulsion. We
should not stay to formulate, or to
give a name to our policy; we should
be quite indifferent whether it were
called by the name of Canning or
Munroe; and we should never afterwards rail at the "unwarranted assumption of authority on Ihe part of
ih" I'nited States." Take'nn example of what I mean trom the his-
lory of South America:
Early in tho lKliO's, pending a
boundary dispute between Chile, Peru
ami Bolivia, Spain sent a fleet to enforce certain claims against Peru,
and asserted a right to regain pos-
ression of her former colony. The
effect was immediate. Local differences were lard aside, and an united
front was turned against Spain.
"Tlte outbreak of hostilities between Spain and Peru. . . . caused
lhe president (of Chile) to imagine
thai if Spain was victorious, the
Spaniards would endeavor to regain
control of South America. . . and
in isii'i these lour South America
republics were united against) such
power as Spain could send across the
seas to attack them."
If neither Canning nor Munroe bad
ever lived, those four nations would
have done precisely as they did.

To lhe Kdilor Herald:
Dear Sir: I would be obliged if you
would kindly allow me, through the
medium ol your paper, to call the
attention of farmers throughout tli*
province to the necessity of conducting a vigorous campaign against tho
spread nf noxious weeds in the province. This constitutes a grave menace to the development or agriculture, and it is very essential that a
determined effort bo made at the
present time to combat the evil belore it gets Iou big Ui handle. It is
deplorable Lo see in many good agricultural- districts in, the province
the alarming extent to which Hie;
Canadian thistle has spread. This
is one of llie very worst weeds in
existence, ami probably the hardest
tti control.
The following course of treatment,
which should he pursued for the eradication of Canada thistle is recommended by the seed commissioner's
branch ol lhe federal department of
Remedy.—Heing a deep rooted perennial, Canada thistle should be
ploughed deep In summer just as tlie
flowers open, or the flowering stems
may he. mowed down and the land
plowed as soon as the new growth
appears. As new stems are thrown
up they must be cut off with a
broad-sheared cultivator, at intervals
during the summer and auhumn. Deep
ploughing in the autumn has heen
found useful in suppressing thistles in
Manitoba. Tho chief safeguard
against Canada thistle and similai
deep rooted pereuiiiaU. fo undoubtedly

ley and liver remedy,

a regular short rotation of crops*
with thorough cultivation. A tbrc
year rotation, including two cuttings
of early red clover for the fust year,
followed by deep fall ploughing for
hoed crops with clean cultivation ami
a cereal crop for the third will suppress it.
For permanent pastures and wild
lauds where this course of treatment
is not feasible, a plan which is followed by many with great success is
to keep the plants cut ofl right at
the crown and never allow them to
flower. This course, it pursued
faithfully, will in a few years lime
destroy this pest.
All provincial constables and fire
wardcus have again this year been
appointed agents for the department
in the enforcement of the provisions
of tht*. Noxious -Weeds Act, and have
be™ instructed In case of non-com-
pliancfl with notices served on owners, to institute prosecutions. This in
itself, however, is not all that is
necessary. It is imperative that
the co-operation of the fanners
themselves be secured. The provisions
of the Noxious Weeds Act aro stringent enough, but its •proper enforcement cannot be effected to lin> best
advantage unless lhe farmers do their,
share, and sir that their neighbors
lake steps to destroy weeds before
they seed. I trust therefore that W<J
may have united action along these
lines, and that effective work will be
done this year towards the suppression of those weeds which arc prov-
ing such a menace to successful agricultural development in different-
parts ol the province.
Thankinft you in anticipation tor
your courtesy in inserting this letter.
Yours very truly,
