Interesting Program Rendered at Opening
Exercises of Young Men's Club on
Friday Night
Every seat llmL could he ci
to r tab I y crowded into the Young
Men's Club gymnasium was comfortably filled last. Friday evening by the
crowd which turned out to the opening exorcises, Mr. ,1. D. McBrldo,
president, of the club, acted as the
master of 'ceremonies and his intro-
iduetion of thc speakers as well as
occasional little stories to illustrate
a point, were well taken by the and
Seneo and proved him a master of
the art of public speaking. Beside
him on the plat lorm were Mr. F. K.
Simpson, the speaker of thc evening, and thc Revs. Kendall and
Thomson.
For a half hour Messrs. Porter,
Maeot .ml Instructor Wilkinson gave
exhibitions in the swimming pool of
tho breast stroke, side stroke, crawl
stroke, English overhead, the trudge,
hack crawl, swimming oa the. back,
swimming under water, form diving,
deep diving, somersaults in the water, finding a pan, etc. During the
performance; one of the swimmers
was pushed into the water with his
clothes on. A general cry went up
of "man overboard," and he was
very ably and quickly rescued hy Mr.
Wilkinson.
Tlte crowd which had been down
stairs lor some time watching the
gyrations, nf the swimming experts
were called into the gym at 8.HO by
a march by the band, and after all
were seated the following programme
was rendered:
Overture— "American   Triumph"	
  Hand

Song—"God Save tlie King."
After the programme all wen*
Invited upstairs wttere a number ol
ladies were serving refreshments,
•Ureal satisfaction was expressed b\
all who participated in   Ibis part   Ol
the evening's entertainment.
Fvery number on the programme
was vociferously applauded and the
singers wen* each forced to emore.
Mr. Harold Darling gave several of
bis inimical readings anil al' the last
the Odd    Fellows quartette scored a
distinct triumph  with  their    song
"And We'll     Never See Out     Annie
Any More."
Tho    remarks   ol both   tlte pastors
ot tbe Baptist and Presbyterian
churches emphasized the fact thai al-
though the idea nf the building had
originated in tho Methodist congregation and that the Methodist church
bud been largely responsible for ils
erection through its members, the
other congregations of thn city
could find no fault in tbe principles
of Its foundation and would wilh one
accord assist in helping along the
good work. Rev. Thomson particularly emphasized the fact that its
erection was in keeping with the
present day hroadmindedness of the.
churches and their response lo latter
day needs. He hoped the spirit of
broad ideas would continue and that
reform in the churches along other
lines would follow as well.
All who expressed opinions on
tiheir first view of the interior of the
htifldlng were unanimous In their surprise that, thc -work had been so
thoroughly done and that so fine accommodations wero provided tot tbo
young men of the city. However, it
will be not altogether the young men
as I In* directors are arranging for
children's membership as well as the
ladies. Ono afternoon each week
will be set apart for the ladles, and
one for tho children under 12 years
of age
Mr, Simpson was introduced by
Mr. McBride as ono ot the early
pioneers of Cranbrook, but now a resident of Victoria. Mr. Simpson
prefaced his remarks by saying that
ho believed he expressed the wish of
the audience and the people generally
of this city and district in tendering
through the chairman their sympathy on account of the serious illness of Mr. Deane, who had done so
much for the town ami district since
assuming the charge, of the paper. He
said it would always feel like home
to be in Cranhrook, ami be was glad
that thc committee had extended
him the great compliment in inviting
him to he present, and he was glad
that he had come since he was privileged to serve an institution that
means so much for the town and
the protection of the young men. He
did not believe that there waa a
father or mother present who did
not spend many hours a day, on the
absent son or brother. Environment -was a potent factor in the
upbuilding of young men, the blood
might be good and the acts
wrong, but he adhered to the theory
that! environment of proper kind
showed better results through health.
It was the specific duly of parents to
look after their children, and in too
many cases this duty was not properly performed. Still, the burden of
raising honest men and honest women depended to a great extent upon
the people as an 'embodied whole.
The contest for the next ten, twenty
or thirty years was fining to be a
good one, and the foundation must
be laid by all. Intelligence would
be the groat requisite, with integrity, loyalty and energy. But with
iti must be laid health, the foundation of all. It was institutions
like tin* Cranhrook Young Men's
club that would produce health. The
magnificent plunge is one of tlie. largest in the province; the gymnasium,
for systematic development of the
muscles; and then would follow intelligence/ integrity, loyalty and
energy.
The boys rf today ate the managers ol the world's business tomorrow, and nn the building up of/those
boys will depend tlte policy of tbe
business, they air to manage.
The public of Cranbrook have a
great responsibility. Parents without stilts havo the responsibilityv as
well as parents with sons. The better
the environment the better the conditions and influences on the1 young.
The people ol I'ranhiook could not
let this great institution, which is
such a credit lo those who, after
great labor caused the inauguration
to ho made, suffer for want of support, am) it devolves on the public
to entry on the good work. The
opening was being made that night.
Tlw next day it was the property of
the people. It was not a question
of religion, it was not an ecclesiastical movomemt, it was a great work
lo be carried on by the people and to
give a great public thc advantage of
advancing lite boys, who are sure to
be men.
After thanking the chairman and
tho committee, Mr. Simpson closed
by wishing those in,charge the greatest! success for the institution.
The Cranbrook Choral Society arc
particularly anxious that a hill al-

BULLA
GREAT
DANCE   TO BE    MADE   AN   ANNUAL EVENT   -SEVERAL
HUNDRED DOLLARS
CLEARED.
On Monday evening,the Auditorium
was comfortably crowded, tlte event
being- the much-talked Charity hall
The early season and the special inclemency of the. weather kept the
new 'Easter toggery from being in
evidence on tho street on Sunday,
but those wno attended the dance
Monday evening saw many new
gowns, all cut in tho peculiar style
denoting them as products of 1013
dressmaking. Several nursesj from
thn hospital in uniform symbolized
the object of the occasion.
Tlte hall was brilliantly illuminated
and suspended across the front of tbe
stage was* a row of electric globes,
beautifully colored, carrying "Easter
Greetings" to all- The crowd was
a trifle late In arriving but by 10
o'clock the halt was being well filled
ami many were enjoying tbe delicate
art of tho famous devotee, Terpsichore. The music, furnished by the
Edison orchestra, was all that could
In* desired and led the dancers from
the fast and strenuous two-step, Into
tlte more sedate strains of the minuet, to the apparent great enjoyment
of all, as many numbers were repeatedly encored.
Back in thc historic ages dancing
was a form of religious worship,
whichi tho religionists of a later day
looked upon as a deadly sin. Now It
has ensconced itself in a secure* nook
In tho social side of life and it
seems to be more enjoyed after the
Lenten season. Usually following
Lent society engages in a whirl of
dances and social functions. The
Charity ball will set a high mark for
tlte functions which are to follow.
The success of this dance was in a
large measure- due to tho vigorous effort! ul tbe rneutfvfl tonwmtke, tb«
general committee, and tin* lad) pal -
ronesses, and St. EJUgene hospital
will be several hundred dollars richer
in consequence, and the managemenl
of that institution desire to return
their sincere t hunks ami appreciation
of the work done In lliefr behalf It
is propositi tu make the Charlt)
dance an annua] event, in view ol
tbe worthy object and the groat sue*
cess of the dam-e mi Monday night
Refreshments wore provided at
midnight und dancing continued until
an early morning hour.

THTILH FILL
BOMBARDMENT      in-       THREE
DAYS ftlVES VICTORY TO
ALLIES,
London, March 3(1.—Adrlanople bus
fallen after one of the mos! stubborn
defenses in the history of warfare,
and Tchalalja, according to a telegram received by the Bulgarian legation at London tonight, has suffered
a like fate.
The information regarding Tchatalja, may refer to the town nf thai
name and not the fortifications, although, it is possible the Bulgarians
carried all before them.
Shukii Pasha, the defender nl" Ail-
rianople, handed bis sword to General Savofi, the Bulgarian general is
s-imo, this afternoon, not, however,
before carrying out his threat to
destroy the town rather than let it
fall into the bands of tin* Bulgarians,
From nil aecotinis tl,,- arsenals,
stores and much of the town are in
flames. It was reported also thai
Shukii Pasha had taken his own life,
but this is believed untrue, as, after
deciding that defense was no longer
possible he sent word to General
SavolV that he was burning the
city.
General IvanofI, who commanded
the forces around Adrlanople, will
enter tomorrow, while King Ferdinand will follow soon thereafter.
The battle which precnled the surrender, started on Sunday night with
a three hours' bombardment. Later
the besieging troops in the east advanced under the glare of searchlights to attack and advance works
at Maslak. After a fierce defense.
lasting tbroughotit Monday, the
Turks retired from the forward
forts.
Although great progress had been
made in the east, in other sections
enormous losses had resulted to thc
Bulgarians with small gains. The attack was renewed and Tuesday and
Wednesday the important inner forts
were taken after hard fighting.
According to a despatch received at
Belgrado from Mtistapha Pasha the
sacrifices were severe. The Servian
Thirteenth and the Bulgarian Eighteenth regiments were blown up by
mines. The reserve hospitals have
prepared to receive thousands of
wounded.
The people of'the (own are said to
he panic stricken and.even Europe,
from the history of previous wars,
'fears that the occupation tnday may
be accompanied by ^discriminate
slaughter.
No news has been received from
Constantinople, but it is feared that
when the capture of Adrianople he-
comes known another revolution mgy
occur. If Tchatalja has fallen there
is likely to be a dangerous influx of
defeated troops.
A Solia dispatch dated 2,30 p.m.,
March 26th, to a London news
agency says that fighting is proceeding in the streets of Adrianople.
A Constantinople dispatch io the
same agency says the Turkish center
at Tchatalja was driven iu Tuesday
with a loss of 8M killed.

Seventy-five Thousand People Homeless in
Ohio Caused by Floods—Water 8 to
20 Feet Deep in Dayton
Cleveland, Ohio, March 25.—The|
most awhil catastrophe in the his-
torj oi lire l mteil States, which
was* responsible fur ibe death of
seven thousand people, occurred in
Ohio today when a fierce flood swept
through 'he state, leaving in its tiail
damage which is almost incalculable.
The stale is completely paralysed.
Railroads, trolleys, telephones and
telegraph is blocked, and cities in
which hundreds of lives have been
losli are cut off entirely from com
mUtticalion [with the rest of the
world, so that it is impossible to do
anything m the .shape ol rescue
wm-k.
According to reports which arc
supposed to be authentic, then wero
fully five thousand drowned at Day
ton, one thousand in Hamilton, and
ilvu hundred and tortj iu Piqua,
Millions of dollars worth <•! damage
has been done to property, and
I here are fully seventy-five thousand
people homeless, hi Dayton alone
there are thirty thousand without
homes, and it, is impossible tu get
in touch with them to alleviate the
awful suffering.
Appeals have been sent from the
towns which were \isite-d by tlu
flood for the Red Cross societies
but it is impossible to send the aid
they ask.
The flood was caused by four days
continuous rain, which filled every
reservoir in the state, and a number
of tbem today undermined, the dam
and poured their contents in tbe valleys. The people alon^ the Miami
river and those in the city of Da
ton had to flee for their lires. Thei
raced behind them a wall ot water
seven fee! high, ar.ri their Ik-us^s af
forded them no shelter for the torrent    undermined   the houses, which
wen* along with the unfortunate
people canied along in the swift
current,
Hundreds were drowned before
they had a chance t.. seek a place uf
safct) Huiiscs.      public builuiuKS,
bnd;-j s and everything in the course
of the onrush were carried away, The
water crept higher and higher until
it was thirty feet at the union station.
ft was at lirst reported that eight
thousand bad lost their lives at
Dayton, but a later message was received from the mayor of that city,
who had escaped from (hr flood, declaring Ihol five thousand were
drowned and thirty thousand were
homeless Hr said that the situation is appalling, and begged that
aid be sent on at ome
At iu o'clock lonicht tbe reservoir
north of Hamilton Must and as a
consequence a Rreat flood swept down
upon the eitv. According in refugees more than a thousand people
perislied.
The Piqua river burst the levees,
ami poured through the city, trapping hundreds in their homes. The
swilt current undermined the homes
of the unfortunate citi?cns, and it is
stated that there are five hundred
and forty dead.
In Delaware it is estimated that
there were a thousand drowned,
while in Cleveland, although no lives
were lost, damae** to property, it is
slated, amounted to J2.ooo.000. The
Cyaboga river swept through the
manufacturing districts, and as a result a hundred mills had to be closed, and this means that fifty thousand workmen will be idle.
In Younestown twenty-five thousand workmen were forced to quit

there were shut down bv the flood.
release of hi-, imprisoned brothers.
He is certain that he will have th"
amount by the time he reaches Vancouver.
The story told by this man, concisely, is as follows: Several years
ago three brothers of the Tarsus
family in Kussia emigrated to America, first settling in the Cnit-ed
States and later mo.ing to Canada,
settling on land near Winnipeg. They
prospered and after sevpial years i»ot
the "back home" fever and made a
visit to their native land. The) no
sooner landed than they were thrown
into prison, the charge acainst them
being thai they had escaped to America to dodge service m the Prussia n-.fapancse war. They had been
in this country for many years before that Mar had even been thought
of and had never been served with
notice of conscription or ;i call t<>
arms. They were sentenced to a
long tenn in the Siberian prison
The one free brother, Git,a Tarsus,
made an appeal to the government
and finally secured consent for their
release on pavmen! ,,f 18500.00, and
although he hud never been m this
country or knew but very little
English he immediately sit sail in
lhe hope of securing the needed funds
for his brothers' release. His success has been as'oimding to him and
he now hasl hopes of returning in a
short time with plenty of money, lie
has been working now about five
weeks and has half the amount raised.
NocdlCBS to say that he is overjoyed with the prospect of success.
The amounts   given   win  from *r>.'>"

amount in this cily.

For the lirst lime iu fifteen years
the International Harvester company
at Hamilton has had to put its em
ployees on short time. When reflecting upon this, just bear in mind the
fact that during .lanuary and February several carloads of settlers' effects were sent out of Canada lo the
United States, and you will begin to
get a dim vision of what it means to
have a government in power at Ottawa that is pledged to a high tariff
and restricted markets.
A deputation of Hritish Columbia
lumbermen recently called upon Honorable George E. Foster, minister oi
trade and commerce, who was at the
lime on a visit to Victoria on his
way to Australia. The object of
the deputation was to impress upon
the minister of trade and commerce
the desirability of promoting thc
interests of the British Columbia
lumber in the markets in Australia.
The minister, was urged especially to
use his best endeavors tr, the end
that the lumber Industry should participate, in the benefit nf any, trade
preference which may result from
the negotiations which he is aboul
to institute. The deputation also
asked the Honorable .Mr. Foster to
urge New Zealand lo include lumber
in its preferential trade agreement
with Canada, The trade agreement
entered, into some years ago .between
Canada and New Zealand did not include lumber, Mr. Foster was also

nn Sir Richard's last trip to

Canadian interests tire made to suffer in order that a harvest may be
reaped from panicky conditions iu
New York. The chartered banks of
Canada exist, and have great privileges hy reason of tlio goodwill of
the government and people, but if
these privileges are to be abused as
tbey have been under the conditions
referred to, public opinion will verv
soon demand the withdrawal of the
privileges accorded the chartered
bank, aud the institution of a national bank, with lhe issue of all
paper currency by the government,

Medicine Hat, Alta., March 20—
That/ conditions from .an industrial

city, is acknowledged on all sides—
not only,!)); the residents of Medicine
Hal, but by those who visit, here
frequently from all parts ol the Dominion and the, United Stall's. Industries arc (locking to,this locality
in numbers, and every month one or
more of these large factories are definitely located here from the United
.States or eastern Canada, and some
times from nearer places.
The positive decision since .January
1, of three large concerns to locate
here, entailing an initial investment,
of about $1,200,0(10, is but one of the
many straws which shows which way
the industrial •wind is blowing. In
fact, it would not be surprising if it
became somewhat of a miniature hurricane before the year Is out—and
that in face of the general financial
stringency that is being felt in nearly all parts of tbe country. It does
not appear to deter the live manufacturer from building his factory
here, however.

New York nnd St. Louis, und all ol
these greal cities find wood block
paving best, being of reasonable
cost, durable under any traflir, easy
to maintain and to clean, practically
dustlcss, firm under the leet of
horses, and of low traction resistance. The Hue de Rlvoli, Paris,
has a pavement of wood blocks whieh
have stood for years the city's heaviest, traffic.
Iu Baltimore in 1 onl a test strip
of miscellaneous pavement was laid
on Holiday street. This strip contained eleven test sections of paving
materials, which were in every ease
furnished by the manufacturer—one
of creosoted wood blocks, one of
vitrified brick. The superior durability of tin* wood blocks was clear
ly in evidence after four years, and
in 1907 every area save that paved
with wood was in such bad condition
that the test was officially declared
closed. The wood blocks in question, however, together with such
others as were needed, were Immediately Telaid in paving the entire original test area.
In Chicago also, in 1900, a creosoted wood block pavement was laid
on Michigan avenue, immediately in
firnt of the 'Auditorium hotel, and
adjoining it at the same tim? a strip
of asphalt block. In 1905 tfu^ asphalt blocks were replaced by wood.
During this five-year period thc us-
phall had worn down an aveuije" of
an Inch, and so unevenly that ruts
formed and Itlie blocks had badly
rounded. In the same period the
wood blocks lost but an eighth inch
in depth, and the surface, save for
one badly built gutter at a single
point, was of even grade and
smooth.
The, initial cost ot creosoted wood
block pavement is on an avcra.'c
somewhat less than that of granite,
not widely variant from that of
brick5, and somewhat greater thai'
that of asphalt, inferior patent pavements and macadam. lis life in
anything like satisfactory condition,
however. In confessedly longer thai'
theirs. ll is but a truism, therefore, io Bay Unit the proper basis ol
judgment, at loosl of wool block
pavement, is lhe returns upon ils
total life cost viewed as an invest-
11m n 1. Tbis principle, well recounted abroad, though but recertify at"
iiaciing attention   here, Intimately
involves, of course, lhe t|Ucstt.in of a
pavement's durability.
That the maintenance cosl of ceo-
soted wood block pavement is ll w
follows as a necessary corollary to
its durability. As a matter of fact,
no pavement shows so low nn upkeep
cost. This is due in great part to
(lie tenacity with which treated
wood blocks preserve tlieir evenness
of surface and of wear, and in a
lesser degree to the ease with which
wood pavement is repaired, ami, in
tin* ease of underground improvements, removed without waste and
relanl In the exact place and quantity necessary.
Certain wood Mock pavements
which have been laid in some cities
of Western Canada cannot be n-
garded t.s fair experiments, because
of the failure to treat the blocks
wilh preservative belore use, and he-
rouse of faulty laying. Wood blocks
must be treated with preservative
nnd evenly laid on firm foundation.

DO YOU ENJOY EATIN6
Or  Does Everything You Eat
Distress You?
Experts declare that the reason
stomach disorders are so common In
this country Is due to hasty and
careless habits of eating. Stomach
troubles nnd run-down conditions also
usually go together.
John Llnd, of Oneonta, N. Y., says:
"I have been troubled with a bad
stomach trouble for fifteen years, and
became so weak tbat I could hardly
walk or do any work. My appetite
was very poor, and It seemed Impossible to get any relief. Since taking
two bottles of Vinol I find that ft has
already made a remarkable improvement In my health; my digestion Is
much stronger, and I have gained In
weight."
Vinol makes weak stomachs strong
because It strengthens and tones up
the weakened, tired and overtaxed
nerves of the digestive organs. Vinol
Is easily assimilated by the weakest
stomachs, and Is delicious to the taste.
Try a bottle of Vlnol with the
understanding that your money will
be returned If It does not help you.

Room rent, $3; breakfast, (coffee
and rolls), 40 cents; luncheon, 30
cuts; dinners, $1.10; care fare, 60
cents;,clothing and incidentals, $1.70.
The witness gave tho following
statement to show that thc commission's idea that there should be a
minimum wage scale for women of
$12 a week is too high. The figures
given, he said, were the actual experience of one of his 1973 female
employees. Another girt employee
disbursed her wages as follows:
Room and board, $3.50; laundry, 20
cents; car fare, 20 cents; clothing
and incidentals, $3.80; savings, 25
cents.
The statement fails to account for
a surplus of five cents, and this was
not explained and Senator Beall remarked that thc girl probably spent
it  frivolously.
One senator told Thorne that girl
after girl had been on (lie stand and
testified that they had "gone wrong"
because they could nol make a living

FIGHT.
Fcrnie, B. C, ■March 26.—For the
lasl ten days Fernie and the sur-
roundlng country have been in the
grip of one of the heaviest snowstorms that have been known here
during recent years. A strong wind
inun the north is piling the snow into dulls, and as fast as these are
shovelled oul they are again filled.
Trains ore arriving late and the

Tbe area effected by the storm is

SENSATIONS.
New York, March 26.-A young
man who received an injection ol the
turtle bacillus administered by Dr.
Friedmnnn last Saturday claims, according to tho Tribune, to have already improved materially, and tells
of the sensations he felt soon     after
aking the treatment.
"About five hours after the time
of the injection I felt a strange sen-
satioiiiin the calf of my leg,'" be
said. "It was like a violent pulsation or motion. It began to spread
until a'tingling sensation thrilled my
nt ire body. I felt that it must he
the cultures spreading through my
whole   system, and   I put my bands
hi my head and shouted: "Work,

UNFAIR REPRESENTATION.
Canadian Collier's, published itl Toronto, recognizes the unfairness of
the present administration in declining to grant redistribution of seats
before the election which is rapidly
approaching. It points out that,
while it lakes Sli.OKB British Columbia people to return a member, It
takes 53,532 Alberta people, 10,213
from Saskatchewan, and 45,501 from
Manitoba. On the other hand, in
Ontario 29,3-10 people return a member. In Quebec the unit is slightly
over thirty thousand. New Brunswick and Nova Scotia have a member each for slightly more than 27,-
000. In Prince Edward Island thc
unit or representation Is 23,432.
Collier's points out si ill further
that on the basis of taxation that
the western provinces contribute
much more per head than the east,
where the representation is much
larger. For instance, British Columbia pays about $30 a head a year
iu customs duties. Some of the far
eastern provinces contribute about
$5 per bead. Despite this fact, it
takes two men in British Columbia
to get the same representative rights
that one man has in Eastern Canada.

No woman should have poor, thin,
scraggy hair, and no man need become bald. Poor hair and final
baldness; are duo to the dandruff
germ.
Newbro's llerpicido will destroy
dandruff and slop the hair from tailing), Further evidence of this is
found in a letter from Mrs. F. Neil-
son, of Toinah, Wis. She says:
"I fought tho worst kind of dandruff
for nlno years. I have been using
Herpicide now one weekt and my
scalp is healthy, the dandruff has
gone and the itching has stopped. It
is the best remedy for scalp diseases
I ever saw, and I have seen many."
Don't subject yourself to disappoint ment and    expense by accepting
something claimed to be "just
good" as Newbro's Herpicide. These
off brands may possibly be good, hut
why take chances? Tho- genuine and
original dandruff germ destroyer can
always be obtained. It slops itching of the scalp almost instantly.
Newbro's Herpicide in SDc. and
T4.00 sizes is sold by all dealers who
guarantee it to do all that is claimed. If you ivie nol satisfied your

MOYIE
At the Society Girl at Moyio, an
effort is being made to reach the
north vein. The work done on
the south vein was, in a way. disappointing, and better things are
expected when the north vein is
encountered. At the St. Eugene,
theadjoiuing property,larger bodies
of ore, carrying higher values,
were always found in thc north
vein than in the south one. The
directors are putting forth every
effort to locate some of the ore
bodies that are undoubtedly on
the property. The shareholders
can feel assured that they are getting a square deal for their money.
The sawmill of the Porto Rico
Lumber Company at Moyie is being put in shape for the season's
run. There are six million feet of
logs to be out, and the mill will be
kopt busy until late in October.
Some thirty-five men are now
employed at the St. Eugene mi no
at Moyie, and the shipments of
ore to tlie smelter at Trail amount
to two hundred tons a month. It
is estimated that thero is sufficient
ore in sight to keep this force or
even a larger one going for the
next year. There seems to bo
good grounds for tho belief
that the St. Eugene will again
some day be back to its former
place, that of being the largest
silver-lead producer in Canada.
F. J. Smyth is back from the
Queen Charlotte islands, where
for the past six months he was in
charge of the Queen Charlotte
News. Mr. Smyth was glad to
return to his former field of activity and meet his numerous old
friends. While out on the islands
in the Pacific he met several former Kootenay people. G, D.
Beattie is prospering and has one
of the best kept stores to be found
in that northern country,   fi. M.
Siuiililiiiuls is government agent,
and a most competent and courteous cilliciul he is. TIiob. Deasy
is the Indian agent for the islands,
the most intelligent nnd progressive lot of Indians iu western
Canada. D. K. Young owiib two
newspapers on the islands and has
largo coal, timber and land holdings. Mr. Smyth speaks highly
of tho climate and the future possibilities of tho place.

It is coming on now to tho season
when incubators, brooders and mother hens will be at work. Even for
those who do not intend to raise
early hatches, it is none too early
lor poultrymen and women to be
getting ready lor the incubation season-
Many people, have an erroneous, Men
that all 'that needs be done is set
the hen or the incubator, giv© them
an ordinary .amount ot care, and their
work is done till the hatches come
off. Such is not tho case. In order
to be a successful potiltryman or
woman, as tho case may be, we must
be "up and ut il" early und late ii
perfect! success is to attend our
effort k. The first and fundamental
step to take is the mating up of thi
breeding pen. In order to do this
intelligently it is necessary to study
youn flock closely trom tho start
Takfl careful note nf the choicest
birds. Watch for tbe one Hint is
lirst off the porch in the morning and
last to roost at night; that is constantly hunting for food, singing and
scratching. It is from such slock
that the breeding pens should ho
made up. They arc the ones that
fill the egg basket und produce healthy, robust progeny. 1 make it a
point to leg-hand all tho early layers, and keep a close watch on their
habits and egg record, and from the
best of them I make up my breeding
pens mated to strong, healthy, active males whieh 1 know to have
been bred from gnod-laying, robust
stock. As a result one Is able to
improve the egg record Irom year to
year, and keep the flock in a robust
State Ol health, providing, of course,
"that sanitation and fettling problems
nre carefully si tidied and everything
kept in porfoct condition.
One of the bancs of poultry-life is
the ever present vermin, for I have
come to the conclusion that extermination ol this pest will he impossible so long as hints (ly, for no
matter how thoroughly you may
clean and disinfect and powder, yet
the next time a Hock of sparrows delight on the hen-house roof, n fresh
lot of vermin will be left, and even
tually a few nf them will find tlieir
way to the roosting pen, and hence
to the hens. However, WO Can hut
do our best, and   keep up a constant
tight, for only by continual care cat*,1
the pest be kepi reasonably in check,
and only hy keeping them In check
can the hens he expected to do their
best, Those of you who are observant will notice that on examining a hen that appears to bo out
of sorts and mopy will find her infested with lice (as a rule) while if
you pick up a healthy, active bird in
the same pen possibly no traces
them can bis tound. Whether
is a cause or an effect of tho
being "out of sorts" 1 have
proved yet, hut I have found il
he invariably the case.
The present month should sec
spring opening of tlte campaign
against the lice pest. A good
spraying ot coal oil will help eradicate the miles usually found in such
numbers on lhe walls, roosts and
nests, Slightly warm a pan ol
sulphur and give tlie hens a good
dusting twice a week with it. If
used cold it is very liable to leave
some had effects at this lime ol tlw
year. Hy doing this the hens have a
good     chance  to   exercise all      tlicir
energies in producing good, healthy
germs in their eggs instead of having
to waste part of il In picking at the
little pests that are constantly drawing some of their vitality from them.
Once the egg is laid it must he
kept in a temporal tiro neither too
hot nor inn cold. If too hot incubation may start, and if too cold the
germ will become chilled, and in
either case it will die. A temperature of about 50 deg. F. is about
right, and in order to prevent evaporation the eggs should he closely covered wilh a flannel cloth and not
taept over three weeks.     Less     than
>     weeks     is*   belter. If early
chicks are wanted, and incubation
to bo done in the natural way,
not everyone knows that bloodiness
may be induced even where hens
show little or no inclination. Take a
dozen or so ot the likeliest looking
mothers, ones not suitable for tho
breeding pen; put them in a pen bv
themselves with lots of neslfuls ot
nest eggs, feed tbem heavily with ;t
ration made up chiefly of corn, and
in a short time you will have all the
"sitters" you require, In selling
hens I always try to set four or five
at once. Then at the end of lhe
eighth day or even lhe seventh 1
test the eg^s just n.S I would with
the incubator loi, and hy so doing
usually four hens will cover the fer
tile eggs, and the fifth hen may be
reset.
In selling lhe incubator great care
imist he exercised in order to get it
properly regulated before ii is sot.
Most! companies claim that their
special make of Incubator is impervious to conditions outside of the
egg chamber. I have yet to see one
that regulates itself so perfectly
that a change of ten or fifteen de-
drecs nf temperature in the heal of
the room does not show itself iu the
egg chamber. The main thing then
is to set lhe machine in a room
whore the temperature varies little.
If a special incubator room can be
provided off the hen-house have it
preferably to the northeast or east
of the. main building, wilh no windows south or west, and it thc machine has to he run in the house
have it iu the cellar if it. he dry and
well ventilated, otherwise a room in
the upper part of the house.is hotter. I have found in running mine
that a hall running north and south
Ihe length of the house and lighted
only from the rooms opening on it
and unhealed is a much heller place
than in any of thc rooms heated
either artificially or by the sun
through the windows. In [act only
iu a place ot this kind will one he
able to regulate a machine perfectly
for any of the regulators 1 have seen
can take care of only from five lo
ten Increased] or decreased degrees of
temperature in lhe surrounding ;»l-
mosplwro, If the nuts!do temperature varies more than that lhe temperature in the egg chamber is sun*
to suffer as a result. Willi regard
lo moisture: anyone living in a dry
climate, that is away from waler,
influences must supply moisture, tn
their egg chambers.      \ number    oi
incubators have moisture pans hi
their machines, and any that do not
should have them supplied by the
operator. In my machine there is
no moisture pan, and tot two seasons I ran it without one, wilh only
very ordinary success. Since then 1
have supplied moisture in the shape
of an agate pie plate filled wilh
either fresh water or buttermilk

RELAXATION  IN MONEY

During tho past week there has
been a marked change for tlie bettor

market, says tho Financial post.
Hankers in Canada are now hopeful ol
u decided chunjqe for thc belter in
the course ol two or three weeks.
The 'fact that they speak ol improvements within a doflfntto1 period
is tm Indication of greater hopefulness, ,   ,
Broadly speaking, however, there
does not -appear to be any better

or two wricks ago. The situation in
Germany is still critical, tbo Balkan
Situation     show ; no Signs uflrhutige-,
nor lias President Wilson In tbo United States disclosed amy thing definite
with regard to his policy. These are
the most serious factors to be reckoned with by the money market.
Security markets show no disposition to assume courage anil during
the week they have been feverish. The
real cause al' lhe bottom of the
nervousness is the obscurity of tlie
future in respect nl the near-east situation iu Europe and thc possible
consequences that may arlso out of
it. Until some light penelrates
tbis obscurity there is going io be a
rather lean supply nl capital to incei

GOOD NIGHT.
Tho cedar trees   have sung their vesper bruin,
And now the music sleeps—
lis benediction falling whore the dim
Dusk of the forest creeps.
MUto grows   the great concerto—and
the light
(if   day is    darkening,    good night,
But through    I lie night time 1 shall
hear within
Tin* murmut of these trees,
The calling of your distant violin
Subbing across the seas.
And waking   wind, and star reflected
light
Shall voice my answering, goodnight
gootl-iilglit.
—Paulino .lohnson.
