Of Interest to Poultry Keepers
Edited by The Brown Poultry Hunch  Fort Steele, B.C.
If satisfactory results are to he se-
ured from feeding ror egg production
the hens must be properly housed,
have sufficient exercise, be healthful
aud vigorous, and posses an inborn
tendency to lay. The feeding problem then becomes one of selecting tlie
right feeds, proportioning them correctly and exercising Judgment and
common sense in carrying out the
feeding operations.
* •   *   *
Food is consumed by fowls to build
up body tissues and to furnish energy.
About seventy-five per ceut. of the
feed of a laying hen is required for
body maintenance, in feeding for egg
production il is Imperative that the
lien be given enough feed lo supply
her body needs and have ;: surplus or
proper food elements lo use in the
production of eggs. It Is expensive
to feed sparingly, thus giving the hen
no surplus above body maintenance.
4       *       *       *
No phase of poultry keeping requires better judgment or closer observation than thai of feeding poultry for
profit. Better results are secured
when when the fowls are fed according to their appeliies Ihan when they
are fed according to rules. There is
no best poullry feed, or ration, other
than tlie one which suppltee most
economically the necessary food elements. When food value is considered some poultry feed at 93.00 per hundred pounds may be more expensive
than other feeds at $5,00 per hundred
* *   *   *
Hens cannot do well ou a whole
grain ration. No grain ration supplies tlie various elements of food necessary in producing eggs. The continued use of a straight grain ration
not only results In poor egg production, but also results In digestive disorders, A ration should consist of
grain and ground feed. Poultrymen
usually refer to the whole or cracked
grains as "scratch food," and to tlie
combination of ground feeds as
* «   •   *
Hens being fed for egg production
should be fed liberally on foods having tlie food elements found in (he
egg. An analysis of the egg shows
that It is composed of ash 12.2 per
cent.; water 05.7 per cent.; protein
11.4 per cent.; and fat 8.0 per cent.
The hen must be supplied With the
necessary materials or she cannot
manufacture the finished produce. The
hen cannot counterfeit her product
Tho egg only varies iu flavour.
Ash produces bone und shell. Protein produces muscle, tendons, blood,
feathers and whites of eggs. Carbohydrates produce fat, heat, energy,
and yolks of eggs.
• »   #   •
Fals produce same as carbohydrates
but are two and one quarter times as
efficient. Crude fibre is only slightly
digestible, and has practically no nutritive value. It adds only hulk to the
ration, and without it the concentrated feeds would form in a compact
mass, thus preventing the digestive
juices from functioning efficiently.  A

Under the head of "Too Many
Cooke." Mlntni Truth ot Spokane recently printed the following trite editorial comments:
•Members of the minim fraternity
In Eastern British Columbia appear to
hart a problem on tbelr bands In the
shape ot too much government Inspection. At the last meeting of the
Mining Association of Interior British
Columbia, held at Nelson early In December, a most vigorous protest was
voiced at a proposal looking to the appointment of an electrical Inspector,
whose duties would be defined by what
Is known as Electrical Energy Inspection bill, provincial legislation now
pending. A long resolution waa passed objecting to this measure, and
pointing out Its connection with Federal legislation on the same subject.
"Jt la claimed that Industrial operations of all sorts, Including mines, are
called upon to satisfy the demands of
some twenty Inspectors of one kind
nnd another. Thus we are led to believe that the present mania for government Interference in private business Is by no means confined to bouiIi
of the 49th parallel. It seems to have
become an almost universal obsession.
The United states Is being damned by
loo much government. Canada, aa it
sometimes happens, follows suit in
these mutters, before waiting to observe the full reeult of experiments,
whether such results be good or evil."

Tittle—Well, I hear that you had
bad weather all the time on your trip
to Canada. The trip wet a dlaap-
polntment, I suppose?

FOR     SOAAE   FOtkP!
To His Worship The Mayor
and City Council.
Following  Is the Annual  Report of
the Works Department for the >•
During the year :t" sewer permits
were granted, all of which connection!
have been finished.
Four manholes were rebuilt, one on
the corner of Norbury Avenue und Edward Street, one ut Armstrong Av
ehue and Edward Street, one ut Han
son Avenue and Duriek, and one a
Clarke Avenue and French.
' The Hewer main was repaired where
it crosses the St. Joe Creek at I'ooley
Avenue and Edward Street. Another
break in the branch main was repaired at Clarke Lnue where the sewer
crosses Smith Creek.
The Hume lending from tbe Disposal
Works, to tbe filtering ground was re
paired and lined up. The septic tanks
were cleaned out from time to time
during the year aud kept in good
working condition.
An extension was made on the East
Norbury Lane sewer between Uils 87
und 80 on Block 810.
There wore 1.224 loads of refuse and
■127 loads of ashes hauled to the dump
during the year. 1 wish to draw your
attention to the fact that there were
a total or 651 loads more hauled
during 1022 than In the year 1921. and
yet lit my opinion our lanes were not
as tidy during the present year as
during the Inst. 1 attribute this to the
fact that during 1921 the people as a
whole co-operated, with the City more
in keeping their refuse off the lanes,
thereby saving considerable trouble iu
gathering up rubbish after it hud been
Bpread out all over te tunes.
There wus also considerable old
building material and refuse from repair work left on the lanes that I
don't consider should he classed as
general refuse.
A new 4 foot sidewalk was run ou
the east side of Martin Ave., between
Edwards and Kane Streets. There
was also a 2 plank sidewalk built on
Kane Street from Walt Avenue west
a distance of 250 feet,
considerable repair work has been
done on the wooden sidewalks
throughout the City, owing to the fact
that in a lot of cases these sidewalks
ure practically done, thereby muklug
tbe maintenance very high. There has
also been a lot of breakage on wooden
sidewalks during the year owing to
at tie and horses running ut large.
The sidewalk on Norbury Avenue in
front of Mr. Wood's new butcher shop
was widened out and carried to tho
tot line.
The following streets were graded
during the year;
Garden Avenue between Kane and
Dennis, Fen wick Avenue between
Kane and Dennis, the lane between
Fcnwick Avenue and Norbury, b4so
the lane between Feu wick Avenue and
Garden Avenue, Armstrong Avenue between I'M wards and Dennis. Some
grading wus also done on French Avenue between Edwards Street und
Dennis. A little grading was also done
on Watt Avenue between liniie and Kd-
wurds, Dewnr Avenue between liM-
wards Street and Van Homo Street,
Norbury Avenue between Edwards und I
Kan. Streets, Edwards Blroal between
Felt Wick Avenue ami Norbury Avenue,
Fen wick Avenue between Edwards St.
ami Louis Street, Kilwunls Street between Martin and Lumsden. All the
above streets were gravelled n certain amount.   Some gravol ami top
dressing was put Oil Hurliit Avenue
between Van [ibriio and Louis Streets.
ulso on Van Home from Raker Street
to Dewar Avenue.
Raker Street front Van Home to
Norbury Avenue was levelled and given a top dressing of crushed rock, also
Norbury Avenue from Raker Street to
Louis was surfaced with crushed rock.
Also Cranbrook Street from Baker St.
to McKinnmi's foundry,
|A new bridge was built ou Van
Home Sti'eet.over Smith Creek by tbe
railway track. This enabled us to run
our refuse along through tbe marsh.
The bridge on Cranbrook Street between Hyde aud Angus Streets was
redecked, also the bridge on Van
Home between French and Dewar Avenues. Repair work was done on tbe
bridges on East Armstrong Lane, East
Hanson Lane, East Fenwlck Lane,
East Duriek Lane; also the bridge on
Louis Street at Garden Avenue.
Tbe brush was cut out on Angus St.
between Van Ikirne and Cranbrook
Streets, and part way between Cranbrook and Kootenay Streets.
Two sink boles were put In, one on
Lumsden Avenue between Harold and
Hyde, and one on Norbury r\venue between Edward and Louis Streets. Tbe
creek between Norbury Avenue and
Baker Street was lowered so as to give
better drainage to the Park grounds.
Several     culverts    were     repaired
throughout tbe City, aud considerable
patching up was done on all streets.
The cemetery wns weeded and the
walks  graded  and covered  with  cinders.   All graves in the cemetery were
trimmed up and left In good shape.
Owing to the extremely hard winter,
the frost went down during January
und February, causing the main on
Armstrong Avenue and Norbury Avenue between Raker Street and South
Baker Lane to freeze up. Also the
hydrant branches all along Baker St.
and within the inner und second class
tire molls froze up several times during the spring, and hud to be thawed
out with the steamer. When the
mains on Armstrong and Norbury
thawed out iu the spring, both the
valves connecting these mains to Baker Street burst and blow out. Also
tbe wooden main on Kane Street between French and Dewar Avenues and
the main on Kane Street between Garden and Fenwlck, and the wooden
mains in the new addition aud in Sla-
tervllle were out of commission for
aeverul weeks. The electric thawing
machine was made use of continually.
ulso the steamer ou hydrants and
mains wherever it could be used to "advantage.
During the summer the wood main
between Dewar and French Avenues
on Kane Street was cut out and re- [
placed with iron pipe. A new extension wus run up French Avenue between Kane und Dennis St: iets, a distance of 207 feet, five new service
connections being run into the lot
lines. The wooden main between Fen-
wick and Garden Avenues on Kane
Street wus also cut oir und u conuec
ttou made with lion pipe to the main
on Fenwlck Avenue to teed the new
During the your 12 new service connections were made.
All hydrants have been examined
Jointly by the Fire Chief and City
Foreman and have been kept iu first
class working order. Four hydrants
had to he dug up for repairs doling
the year, und two replaced with new
AH air valves on the 14 inch steel
main were examined and put In good
working condition.
Considerable work was done on the
Slaterville system during tbe year, and
a new 2% inch service was run to the
edge of the old school building on
Cranbrook Street to give service for
tbe new school.
During tbe first part of the yeur u
very serious water shortage occurred
at the reservoir, owing to the shortage
of water In St. Joe Creek. ,AlBO to the
fuet that the reservoir wus practically
frozen to the bottom, nud to the amount Of water seeping through the old
dam. During tbe summer, the lower
portion of the reservoir was cleaned
out and widened, thereby greatly increasing the water capacity. A temporary dam WB8 built 700 feet above
the old dam. iu order to allow of cleaning out the reservoir und repairing lbs
lower (Run.
A new cement spillway was built at
tile lower dr.ni, also two cement seep
age wnlls run across the old spillway
nud through the old dniu. This enabled us to raise tbe water level practically live feet higher (bun II was In
the old reservoir. Tlie work of clean
ing out all the upper etui of the reservoir COUld not be completed owing lo
the tact that the creek was so low thai
we were compelled to conserve all water available. When the gale ut the
new spillway was closed in order lo
IHI the reservoir, tbe creek below the
dam was completely dried up. This
caused quite a bit ol friction with water users below the reservoir, and on
that account the filling of the reservoir was naturally very slow, owing
to the gate having to be re-opened.
1 might mention that when going Into the matter with the Water Branch
Engineer, Major Hicks, we found that
apparently the City was using considerably more water than our licence
called for. A house to house check
was made on water consumers, In order to ascertain, if possible, tbe amount of leakage and waste that was
taking place.
I might say that while we found a
few cases of waste, they were practically Insignificant. We also checked
nil our mains for leaks as early us
possible, and while a few small leaks
were found and repaired, there Is apparently no excuse for tbe excessive
amount of water being consumed. 1
have endeavored to get information
on the amount of water consumption
lu other places, namely. Medicine Hat,
Calgary, Vancouver, Revelstoke, and
as near us I can understand, all these
cities are practically in the same condition us ourselves; their consumption
being greatly in excess of the recognized amount per capita,
I might also mention thai I understand the City of Vancouver is installing water meters on all their services us rapidly as possible.
Regarding the provision of a better
wnter supply for the future, considerable work has been done Investigating
the possibility of other storage reservoirs higher up the St. Joe, ulso the
feasibility of bringing in water from
Gold Creek. 1 am of the opinion that
the ouly reasonable way of Increasing
the quantity of our water supply would
be to bring in practically tlie whole of
Ihe North branch of Gobi Creek. This
would probably double the amount of
water that Is at present available in
the dry season, and would also provide
for a surplus of water for Irrigation
purposes below the reservoir.
Considerable duta as to the cost of
i his undertaking has already been
gathered, but lu my opinion this work
should be undertaken jointly between
the City and the Provincial Government, and that steps should be taken
as soon as possible to get it under
way; also to increase the amount of
our Water Licence.
During the year, 42 building permits
were issued, with an approximate valuation ot 111,081.50.
