change in the rule of the road, B. C,

Incidentally he admitted that lhe
preseni government is following out
a    practice for   which   tbe    Liberals
ivore wonl to roundly blame the
former administration, namely, ibe
permitting of the •'tile of carcases ut
animals ordered sh.imhtered by the
government Inspectors because of
their being infected wiih tuberculosis, There was a time when tbe
Liberal critics, who sought any and
all excuses for criticising the late administration, literally made the wel

ihe failure of the (hen Department
to adequately safe guard tho public
health through the prohibition of the
sale of such Infected meat. Hut the
practice is still being permitted by
the preseni Department, the Minis
ter admitted.
Tho question of the advisability or
oiherwise of the tuberculin test was
one-on which, formerly, considerable
difference of opinion existed. The
present premier, when some years

his farming operations in the Delta

than did bis pulltl-al efforts, was one

The Canadian citizen who
goes out of the way to buy
goods with the "Made-in-Can-
ada" stamp on them is doing
considerable to bring the Can-]
adian dollar back to its one
hundred per cent, value, says
an exchange.
And the power of the Canadian consumer is something to
boast about, although Canada
is a small nation compared
with the United States. It is
said ihat lhe railroad men of
Canada alone have a buying
power of nearly six millions a
week. If every worker in
transportation made it a rule
to call for Canadian goods;
above American, there would
he a scurrying i\*!pe*K mer-
en ants to -v-Jjl^ IT*with tnade-i
iu-Cauada wares. And the1
railway worker would benefit
as every citizen would benefit,
for a more widely extended demand forCanadian wares would

workmen, and greater general

the lungle ol lakae and streams, traversed the prairlee end stormed the
rugged mountain passes that barred
tln> way in tlie Pacific mean True,

lives ttian moro love ol gain, Noverd
tholess, the magnificent prollta to bo
realized In tho tur tradi formed the
economic baala which equipped and
sustained tin- work of discovery-
Canada Is nol only a great fur-con-
oumlng country, bui la also ono of the
loading fur-producing countries of tlie
world and, provided w< take proper]
meaaurea to conserve our wild life, is
likely always to remain so. Although
liero, ii.- olaewhere,fura are often worn,
for ornament, our rigorous winter
makes furs almost a necessity fur
many reasons Tho farmer who drives'
many miles to tlie elevator over the
wind-swept prairies, appreciates the [
value of a warm coonslcln und knows j
that no covering devised by the Ingenuity of man is so effective in excluding tlie eold ns the natural protection
with wliieli the wild animals are endowed.
Before the war. we were importing
more furs than we exported. For tlie
liscal year 191?, onr total imports of
this commodity amounted to $7,993,-
051 and our exports io ifr>.415.11!», thus
leaving and unfavorbale balance of
over 2% million dollars. During the
wur. we nave had a favorable balance,
small at first, but rising tu $51,214,584
for the hscal year 1919. For that year
our exports amounted to $13,737,621
and onr imports to $4.r>23,037. The Increased value of our exports is largely
due to the enormous rise In prices but
also indicates a considerable increase
in tlie number ot pelts exported. It isj
gratifying to note that, in spite of the-
higher pricoa, our importB have actually decreased in value. This would
Beetu to indicate thai there is an increasing domestic consumption nf ouri
own furs.
In 1913, our imports from the United
States were $4,228,466 and our exports
to it, $2,343,183, showing a trade balance in favor of the States of $1,886,-
27.-.. Por the fiscal year ended Marcli I
31, 1919, the figures, as given in lhe1
Annual Raport of the Department of ■
Trade and Commerce, are: imports,
$8,861,605; exports, $9,743,464; balance
iu Canada's favor. $5,941,869.
Our imports from Great Britain j
have declined from $1,294,462 ln 1913 io!
only $148,456 in 1919. Meanwhile,
our evports have Increased from $2.-
795.791 in 1913 to $3,703,955 In 1919- j
Taking Into consideration Uie rise in
prices, thesse figures Indicate aa actual decreast in quantity.
Undressed furs form much the largest item In in our exports, over 98 peri
■•ent of Ihe whole, and also about TS j
per cent of the import-;.
lu Russia, in pre-war times, great
fur sales were held at Irbit. Nljnl-I
Xovponl and Moscow. In Germany,
the ureal market was Leipzig, where1
the Mb Baster fair used to attract fur-'
buyers from all parts of the world.*
Montreal should take its place beside j
these centres as a preai fur market
and the Montreal Pur Sales Board!
seems tn have selected a propdtlons
moment for launching the enterprise,;
befon the channels of trade, which
have been dislocated by the war,'
again settlo down into well-worn!
At the Canadian fur auction sale
held in Montreal Saturday, the flrsl
annual sale of the kind conducted
ihere a grand total of $5,698,129 In:
sales Is reporled.
The average was the feature of the;
lust day, 16,176 -kins iu 22:t lots!

of $10ii per skill on one lol being paid

A bulletin from the Department of
Agriculture. Ottawa, suys that poultry
culling demonstrations thai have been
carreld on by tlte federal live stock
branch have clearly proved that iL ifl
possible lo take out from forty to sixty per cent, of the stock in tho aver-
aye farm flock and still leave the
farmer with as many egges per day

of -.bis knowledge lo the farmers uf
Canada can hardly be over-estimated.1
/ n eeually valuable service of the
federal live slock branch is the grading cf market wool. According to the
report of the minister for the fiscal
year ending 1918-18, approximately 4,-
550,006 pounds of wool were systematically graded and sold co-operatively.
'these are only examples of the services o filie federal department of agriculture, which has bra*iche.- and division!, for tlie advancement of pi.mm

whore the tree has become absolutely
too thick.
If the orchard is old and has been
neglected; whieh is evidenced by the
lack of growth, and barren arms fur
many feet from tho main trunk, a
vigorous heading back of the top is
necessary to force oat new growth
from whieh new frut-produefng wood
can be selected.
Handle the young treats carefully.
Do not make a practice lo head hack
half or one-third annually. Watch
the crotches ami always keep one
branch in the lead to avoid weak
crotches. Cut out where brnnvhes
are too close together, keep the tree
headed low, and if tlie variety produces a long rangy tree suppress the
strongest growing branches the
most and tin weakest the least.
In cutting back o main branch and
one of its strong growing laterals do
not cut both to the same length. Permit the main branch to ret a hi tiie lead.
Otherwise two branches of equal dl-l
mansions will result which will produce u very weak crotch; a constant
source of trouble,

looting either a branch growing at a

In the  following:
Rabbits are valuable ror their meat
and for tholr tur, Their Mesh is

In northern Prance and Belgium,
rabbits are aa commonly kapl on
farms as poultry. It is therefore.
only natural that several of the besl
utility breeds should lu.v. been developed in Unit pan of the world.
Enormous quantities of rabbits are
consumed every year in England; Indued the home supply Ims to be
greatly supplemented by Imports
from  Australia.
in cities, pigs are objectionable because ihey are malodorous and chickens because they are noisy; rabbits
urn clean and quiet, as well as easily
kept. True, they will not devour the
house garbage in any considerable
quantity, nor is it good for them, yet
they can bo cheaply fed. They will

coucli grass, shepherd's purse, vetches

can bo given the leavings of cereals,

The entertainment at tho Auditorium theatre last Thursday evening
wne deserving of a full hou c instead
of the meagre handful who patronized
Leslie Grossmith'b high class music,
recitations and dramatic performance.
An artist of versatile rgtftfl, Mr. Grossmith was equally at home with piano
compositions of the lirst quality inclusive of numbers composted by himself, as well as humorous monologues
and very clever impersonations. The
London costertnonger was particularly good and the curate highly amused
the audience. The catchy songs too,
were extremely witty und a decided
feature of the program. Perhaps tlie
best offering of all was the dramatic
touch when "Mr. Qullp" of the Old
Curiosity shop of Dickens was very
ably portrayed, Although a host In
himself. Mr, Cirossmith wns supported
by Marguerite Hill and Mr. Charles
Brookes. The former rendered very
pleasingly some vocal ".lumbers and
the latter at the violin gave some skilful interpretations especially his
"Berceuse" from Jocelyn.
At the conclusion of his program
Mr. Grossmith deplored some of the
ni..-erablo circumstances attending
j h'is visit to Cranbrook. Firstly, he
had attempted to secure local aid and
; in order to devote pnrt proceeds to
some local funds had written to nr-
range his concert under local auspices. "The lack of courtesy" he said
■ lie received at the hands of the high
school principal "was extraordinary."
: but which ln a measure was atoned
for by the pleasant relations with
I whloll he delivered his lecture to the
school children of the Central school.
The extremely bad shape of the piano placed at his disposal at the theatre with Its broken pedal mid severe*1
useless keys, very much hindered his Community will be held in the office
