A NIGHT WITH BURNS
ANNIVERSARY    OF      SCOTIA'S

Cranbrook's Scotsmen certainty did
themselves proud last Tuesday evening, the one hundred and i.ft\ i:t-t

"While it satisfies the stnmseh ol
every true Scot," an authoritj re

Amid n roar of applause "The Hag

night to tin' whirling of the bag
pipes, Sandy McCowan officiating as
piper, and .1. Miintniiuld beating the
national dish, to which he delivered
tho famous Hums ode "To a ling

vtofl to throwing some light on this
problem and also lo learn just what
was going on in regard to matters
electrical In this city, a representative ol the Herald, paid a Tis.it to
the new power house now being
erected for the Electric Light company. Messrs Archibald Waller and
Arthur II. Ncsbltt, have the contract
for this structure, which is now
rapidly nearing completion. The
building Covers an area of 01x5-1
feet. It is limit .-[ solid brick, supplied by the Cranbrook Brick company, with cement foundations ami
a galvanized iron roof, being as near
fireproof as possible. The main
building is about completed ami will
be ready to turn over by the time ol
the expiry ol the contract, February
first
The new bullulng is Bitunted i n the
site formerly occupied by the Kast

The lirst shipment of the new
plant has alrcadj an Ived and the
balance is on the way and is expected daily.
As is pretty generally known, the
Cranbrook Electric Light company
purpose erecting a power plant on ihe
Mary's rivei al an early date
and when that is in operation, the
Idea is to utilize the i ew building,
under review, as an a ixlllary distributing station, u, ,: evenl ol any
break down at the SI .Mary's river
plant. The company's idea in
erecting a steam powi hou ic of the
magnitude described was thai at no
time should there he any dang I ol
failure ol electric supply through a
break down. \ stew . supply ol
power is thus pra tically assured,
ensuring this city against an] tucl

growth of the city of Cranbrook and
the evident rapidly increasing de
mands for both light abd power, the
company realized that really Import
ant additions must be made to th;1
plant ami last year a contract was
entered into with the city council,
whereby the company bound itself
in supply continuously up to 600 h.p.
and to have everything in readiness
to place this supply at the disposal
ol the city by May 22nd ol this year,
under penalty of forfeiture of a
$3,000 deposit.
From present indications and Iron
all that the Herald represcntath
could learn there appears to he very
little prospect of the city securing

ADVANTAGES    OF IRRIGATION.
The recently issued belli'tin of the
Dominion experimental [arms brings
to light some very Interesting and in-'
structive facta regarding the increns-■
i'd yield produtxil by irrigation. For
the last two years the farm ut Lethbridge lias been testing the relative
results to be obtained from Irrigated
and non-irrigated plots of grain and
vegetables. The lollowing results
were obtained for 11109:

Editor the Herald:
I had the pleasure of hearing the
:esh)ent of the local Farmers' institute, at a recent meeting ol that
body, give what I felt to lie a very I
instructive and thoughtful paper on
Hie relation of bees to successful
fruit raising and it must have been
very disappointing alter the labor of
preparing such a paper and also of
bringing to the meeting a great deal
of the apparatus of modern bee culture, in order to illustrate his work,
to lind only six people evincing sutli-
cient interest, in the subject Itself or
in the general work of the institute,
to be present. True, a prophet has
honor everywhere but at home; bul
the act inaugurating the Farmers'
Institute explicitly states that each
local hotly must hold at least a certain number (two, I think) of meetings besides those fur which the department of agriculture supplies the
speakers, or in case of failure to do
this the government grant is forfeited and tbe institute ceases to exist.
From this it will he seen the officers
are obliged to arrange for those extra meetings and furnish the speakers
from such sources as are at the time
available in the locality or step into
the breach themselves, and it is
surely a poor appreciation of their
efforts when, while willing to get
out and hear outside talent, no one
will hold up the hands ol those who
for the good ol the locality arc making efforts to keep alive such a working body.
Neither a Board ol Trade, Farmers'
Institute or any other body, not organised for direct gain, can be kept
alive unless tbe people ol the locality
show some sign of interest in its
work ami every such body organised
in and around any town has an Influence on the life and future of the
town. Moreover, in the liwal institutes is the only place where the
superintendent of institutes ran expect to find his future material for
workers, for we hope to in the time
When we will not have to send to the
east or over the line for them, nnd
tbe local man ought to tie given
some meed of encouragement at home
else we will never have any local representatives on the itinerant staff of
ihe department, a thing that Is always a mutual advantage to the
home district and those visited.
We have now on loot in this scc-
ih.n a move, or rather merely a feeling of the way so far, to orgaui/.e a
poultry and pet stock association, an
organisation that, if well supootted,
tan be made not only a source id
much pleasure, but also of a great
deal of material advantage to Cranbrook.
Poultry keeping can be made a profitable addition to almost any hue
ol farming and for its proportion of
coal is the most profitable branch ol
live Stock on the farm, and Its profits on tbe general farm can be made
greater than where kept in any other
way, If given anything like due share
ol attention, a thing 1 must admit
wry few farmers will do. The
prices for poultry products are good
in any form in which they may lie
marketed, the demand is never half
supping from local sourer* and no
OM relishes cold storage turkey, duck
or roaster, while It Is always taking
chances to serve a boiled egg that
has been shipped in, and the work of
poultry among fruit trees and bush.-.
and over the soil, before and after
I lie cropping season nf field and garden crops, Is of much more benefit
than most people realize A small
Mm k on nny hoiiseholder'a location
always gives a satisfactory return
for much that would otherwise g» to
thr   garbage    pail and where larger
types cannot be accommodated, what
more interesting for the smaller
members of a family than hall a
dozen bantams of choice breeding, in
which almost- any lasie can be suited
in at least thirty varieties of shape,
color and size, all of them so diminutive that a good sized packing case
or a piano box will make a commodious home tor them and most ol them
so light in form that they can be
allowed free range even among tho
most delicate flowers and plants
without damage; and there is nothing
gives as much sense to any person In
the management of animals in after
life as to have had the care and association of some animals or birds in
the early and formative years of
life. There is also no denying that
one of the most engrossing hobbies
in existence is the breeding of fancy
fowls and tlie exhibiting of tho same,
and the care and study necessary to
the proper mating and breeding of
real first-elass slock, to secure winners in the show pen, requires
a knowledge of anil attention to
color and shape, which brings a needed relaxation from the more serious
cares a business man may have, and
affords a pleasant diversion right at
home and without being a constant
bill of expense, and one that, if litis to be a success in it, will fill his
spare moments as fully as be will
wish.
I will not enumerate further benefits to he derived from a wider interest in good poultry, but will merely
say Ihal to all these, added value
will be given by an organized association, each man will, by comparison of his own birds with tho
other fellow's, get an education on
his own stock, united action on mutual interests will lie possible, a
show, without which an association
cannot long be kept alive, gives opportunity lor exchange of blood without heavy expense, and induces outsiders to take up some variety, all of
which conduces to the one and important end-BBTTER POULTRY
AND MORE OF IT.

EDITORIAL NOTES
The recording of things done and In
the doing appears to us to be the
sanest method of impressing upon the
outside world tho growth and pos-
slblUtles of the good city of Cranbrook and of the nourishing district
surrounding it. We have no fault to
find with other methods ol boosting,
save that we are not convinced that
the mere repetition ol the statement
ibat Cranbrook is Hie best place on
God's green earth will suffice to
create conviction of its truth In the
minds ol strangers. Holding these
views, we have been endeavoring ol
late to keep to tho Mont records ol
progress made and in tho making and
v.i- propose to continue devoting time
and space to the preparation anil pub-
licitj ol these records of things done.
Very satisfactory evidence ol the
utility of this policy reached us this
w.ili,   in   Hie   shape ol  a cable    from
London, England, ordering lilty copies of ii recent issue ol the Herald,
which contained a write up of the
Skookumchuck district. The article
in question must have impressed certain people in London very favorably, otherwise they would not have
Incurred the expense of cabling an
order for additional copies.
Mm aim is to publish every week
an article of this character, dealing
with some civic or district undertaking or enterprise, and we invite the
co-operatfon ol those who believe, as
we do, that Ibis is the most practical and valuable form of publicity.
All that is requisite for Cranbrook
and Cranbrook district to maintain
their present high status and to
share largely in the attention, both
in the shape of capital lor investment and of new settlers, that is
now- being directed to Western Canada, is to consistently and persistently publish to the world the plain,
unvarnished facts ol conditions and
opportunities that exist in this favored section of Hritish Columbia. We
most heartily invite the practical cooperation of everyone interested in
such a campaign of publicity

There have now heen counted and
checked by the special representatives
nf both parties, a total ol 46,540
votes, the aggregate gain by the
local optiotiists through allowances
being 981, while about 250 ballots
arc understood to have been reserved, to form the basis ol appeal to
the executive, The affirmative vote
fell short of the required 50 per cent
originally by 1,568, so that, conceding everything—claimed the allowances plus the so-called "reserved
ballots" intruded to lie laid before
tbe executive council, would only
slight ly reduce the margin of failure
—not remove it-
Yesterday's allowances of 117
votes fur local option were gained on
a reconsideration in all of 18,321
ballots, tbe details being as follows:
Cowiehan, one; Newcastle, five; Na-
imimo, eight; Albert)! eleven; Couiox,
ten; Delta, two; Chilliwnek, seventeen; Richmond, six; Cariboo, one;
Vale, twenty-five; Kevelstoke, seventeen; Hossland, two (three over the
percentage); Fctnlc, six; and Dewd-
ney, six.
It has been noted as the official
count has progressed that tbe rural
distriets—in which, il anywhere, the
complete enforcement ot local option
would be possible—have Voted adversely to the application ol the
svstem. This circumstance, almost
as much as the directly negative
vote, convinces many who are personally in sympathy with prohibition, nnd with local option, that it
would be most unwise at tbe present
juncture for friends ot local option to
further press the claims of that principle in It. ('.
P
Hegnuilng the third day ol the official count ot the local option plcbis-
clte with 1,201 votes to make up,
out of a total ol 17,707 in order to
win the required percentage, the
champions of what now seems lor
tbe present a lost cause in Hritish
Columbia, during ycs-terdiiy succeeded
in increasing allowances out ol tho
rejected ballots reconsidered to the
extent of 117 in the total, thus re-1
dueing tbe advene figures at the |
dote ol the day to 1,187, says the
Victoria   Colonist There remains,
however, but the one district of
Skeena to be reviewed, the ballot
boxes not yet having put in an ap-!
pcarance. ami the completion   "I   the.
iiint has accordingly been adjourned
indefinitely—it liemg understood fiat
tbe deputy provincial secretary will
notify all interested parties so lOOnl
as the delinquent ballots present
themselves.
As the total vote polled for members in tbe Skeena district was
1,3MB, and only two ballots arc reported as rejected, it may Ik- seen
that the prosjiect of reversing the
verdict against a change ol system
with respect t<> liquor tralfiic regulation at present amounts to nil.
Argument will In- offered More the
provincial executive, however, hy the
local option champions, in the hope
rf reducing the negative margin, although with llllle or any teal hope
