ihe district.
At tho conclusion of the business
the cliairnian called upon Mr. SollOC-
mercli to address the gathering on
live stock. Mr. Schocmerch is a
man of mal tire years and gives evidence of a long life of hard, practical
work in farm operations. With all
due deference to tlie very smart and
well educated graduates that the
agricultural colleges equip and the
government sends out, a head of
gray hair or an absence of hair,
seems to entitle a man to a more
respectful hearing and gives added
weight tn his words.
Mr. Nchcomerch in his introductory remarks referred tn the very
great scarcity of live stock at thc

One of the features of western life
is tht? constant change of t>crsonnel
and the moving panorama of personalities that touch, meet and go.
Every town in the west has many
changes in the course of a year, a
condition which marks the geographical position from the territory to the
east, where business is more settled,
stale and motonons. During the
past year many such business changes have occurred in the city of
Cranhrook, many of minor importance, and not a lew among the industries which a year ago were considered fixed.
The latest evolution in .tho husiness
horizon of the city has just been announced this week, when the Kink
Mercamtile companj announce their
retirement from the grocery business,
which has been purchased hy Ira K.
Manning. Kink's have been considered a fixed Institution in the grocery
trade, having built an enviable reputation for square dealing under the
synomous department caption of
Kink's Pure1 Food Grocery. Tho
change of policy 'has been considered
for some time and is not the result
of any recent condition. Tbe stock
will be taken over by Mr. Manning

Mr. Upton, who is one of the expert poultrymen connected with the
provincial department of agriculture,
in his opening remarks made his first
point hy declaring that unless the
poultrymen co-operated in selling and
in working tn a standard for new laid
oggs they were not going to obtain
lhe profits (hey should.
As long as case eggs from two
weeks to two months old were allowed to be sold on a pif with local
new laid, things would not he right.
Eggs could be produced for 30c. if
handled and ninrkcled properly, hut
not otherwise in this province.

Poor artificial hicubnliou produces
from which Malcolm Mclnnes' mill is
cutting. This is 'the lirst big
"burn" that has been done in tbis
part of the province, if tint in Hritish
Columbia, and its complete success
should go a long way in convincing,
lumbermen lhat slashings can be
cheaply and safely matte into lire
The timber in the valley is owned by Messrs. Mclnnes and Trites
and thc government. The district
which has been cut was Ihe key tn
the lire situation in many million
feet of limber farther up the valley
aud over some valuable coal proper
ties. The snow was scarcely ont of
the green Umber surrounding the old
cutting and no brush piling had been
done. The tin1 was turned loose
and today a drag barrow could be
pulled among the stumps. On one
day nineteen men were employed and
on another six men. Otherwise,
there was no labor in handling tlw
lire. In one place only, aiming a lot
of jack pine pules, il ran into green
stuff and up a bluff. Had a lire got
started in the dry season Joss of life
in that valley could scarcely have
been avoided.
Conditions were only average in
this case and any lumberman could
do the same thing at a very moderate expense ami with a minimum
of risk a little earlier in tin* season.
Mr. Oilmour also advises us that
the department will put a telephone
line up the Klk Valley to Macdon-
ajd's rar*/'b. and another to the. top
nf Raker mountain near Cranbrook
From the latter point, where a lookout is stationed during the dry season, ihe entire country for (Hey miles
around Cranbrook can be watched.
Tim line up the Klk will assist the
fire warden in gelling men fn a
hurry from Michel in case of trouble
up tlie valley. As the success of
fire lighting depends on discovering
the fire early and getting busy at it
as soon as possible, the telephone
will play an important part in forest fire protection in the province
All the railroads now have fire patrols following all their trains and
these men work in harmony with the
provincial forestry men and each assists the other whenever possible.

(By William Bartholomew),
1 have been asked by poultry raisers a great many times this question:
If 1 could tell lluiii why so many
chicks die in the shell and fail to
come out on the twenty-first day tit
incubation? Main poultry raisers
are of varied opinions as t0 why
chicks die in the shell. Therefore it
is a very hard question to answer
satisfactorily. Speaking from my
own personal experience, I find that
it has first much In do with Die
kind of place in which an incubator
is run. Vou possibly know the
old saying "Re wire that you are
right; then go ahead," and this saying can rightly he applied In operating an incubator to obtain best results,        v

of course ii must he rememlicred
that we are dealing with life from
start to finish,
By repeated test I have found lhat
the kind of room I have here described brings good results at hatching
time and I do believe that dying in
the shell is caused by poorly veatil.it
ed rooms, also lack of sunlight, and
this is one reason why I have a glass
top to the McBride incubator. I
have tried them in the dark, bul I
find tbat light is best for me. If
your room is both poorly ventilated
and lighted, by all means remove
the machine to a room that lias th*
two above requirements, "Thc parlor*' is none too good.
Another cause of mortality nf
chicks is irregulutiou. of heat, viz:
anywhere from tm degrees to 1(18 degrees. The heat in an incubator
should not get lower than 102 degrees or over in I degrees during Incubation, e.g., 102 degrees first week,
103 degrees second week and 101 degrees third week. As this is the
average temperature of u setting hen
during incubation.
Too great heal' causes early blood
poisoning while overheating from 108
degrees to 10S degrees curdles the
yolk in thn digestive organs, the
chick never recovers and dies during
incubation or soon afler. I have
known some lo live two or three
week, and finally die. Some take the
diarrhoea, while others just drop
and die, and it is caused bv over-
beating* during incubation. On
opening the bodies it will be fonnd
that they have died from blood-
poisoning, caused by the overheating,
as it caused the yolk to get dry and
hard and this the chick can not as
si mi late and the chick will die
either before or after the hatch.
Young chicks should not he fed for
forty-vight hours at least. I myself do noti feed them for sixty
hours after they are batched, as
this gives them 'time to thoroughly
digest Ibe yolk.
Another cause of chicks dying in
thc shell is a poorly ventilated incubator.    Chicks need lots of air.
The germ in a fertile egg will begin to hatch insitle of thirty-six
hours after the germ has come in
contact with thc heat.
In forty-eight hours the heart and
head can he seen.
In sixty hours there is a motion
of the heart.
On the seventh day the stomach,
lungs and liver appear.
The tenth day the whole form appears.
The twelfth day feathers appear.
Thc fifteenth   day the hill can    hi
seem to open and shut.
The eighteenth day lhe chick
bursts through the air cell.
Now the chicks need lots of moll
tun* and pun* air. If the moistur
is too low it will die iu the shell-
it cannot turn so it will stick fast.
No ehlcki is ton large to get nut of
its shell if thc conditions have been
kept right iu Ok* egg chamber.
I want an incubator that will deliver up the chicks large and strong,
(live a chick plenty of heat, moisture and ventilation and 1 will
guarantee il will come out on time
after it has burst the air cell on
the eighteenth day. The saw on the
end of thc nose will cut, the shell sn
that it. can get out easy. These
arc facts that I have proved tn he
Too many operators will cause a
chick to die in the shell before the
eighteenth day- Only one person
should have charge of the machine
and he should know well the conditions under which it should be worked and he or she should say "Hands
off," lo inexperienced people. Have
confidence in your machine anil in
your ability to run it successfully.
Carelessness in turning and cooling
the eggs will also cause chickens to
die In tbe shell.
Let us learn a lesson (mm Biddy

Tracts, which have been in reserve for some time. All irrigated, and within

Duncan, Brilisli Columbia, board ol

resolution: "That the government of
British Columbia be petitioned to
enact such legislation as will prevent
any person other than persons of tho

and that ;l copy of this resolution he

The Calgary News-Telegram has
issued i 'Prosperity Edition" eon
tnining 130 pages of a review of the
progress of the city and province in
Ihe lasl few years. The record of
ihe growth of Western Canada is one
of the remarkable world movements
and the most notable and stupendous
ever made by one country in so short
a space of time. Modern methods
and modern inventions for dissemination of Ihe news, ease and swiftness
of transportation and scientific uses
of power for development of the
lands on a largo scale, have all been
used iu the advancement of Canada, The News-Telegram has -presented the growth in a conservative
way whieh make the facts appear all
thc more wonderful and which should
prove ;i valuable asset as an advertisement for tlte eity, and a compilation id civic history of the
men, industries and eoterprises
whioh are an integral part of tho
eiiy today. Calgary has been ono
of the most, prosperous cities ol the
west, and will continue tn Its prosperity for many years yet to tome,
or until such time as the country
has developed to the full possibilities
of Ihe resources and soil elements,
which are obly now in their infancy
and will take many years to complete.
Speaking on the subject of war,
fore   the   Washington    Peace society
recently, Mr. Bryan said:
"War Is in the interest nf a fow
people, not of all. The profits are
garnered by a tow, while the masses
pay the taxes. A few men B°to
glory, while the mothers ol lhe
Hon furnish the BOtifi who make food
tor battlefields.
"Back of much of the furore for
war is a selfish interest in the manufacture- of battleships. There are
men so unpatriotic that they try to
stir up trouble in another country
against their own so as to make personal profit therefrom.
"The people are learning to discriminate between patriotic newspapers aud those that seek only for
big headlines."
Por more than a quarter of a century the Dominion experimental
farms .have, been carrying, on experiments to (ind out, the best kinds of
crops and animals and the best ways
of handling litem for profit. This laws
been Koing on not only at the t'en-
ttiil Farm al Ottawa but also In Ihe
.Maritime Provinces, the prairie provinces and in British Columbia. The
bcuelits that have resulted to the Canadian farmer from this worki are undoubtedly very great hut still thou-
rands of earnest men are not receiving the full advantage of what1 is be-|
ing done. lor tlicin. Perhaps many,
do not receive the reports and bulle-t
tins containing; lhe information while:
others receive these publications regularly but do not find the time to,
study out thc lessons from them, la'
order to help, especially this class id ,
busy men and women there has heen
issued by direction of the lion. Mat
tin Burrcll, minister of agriculture, a
special bulletin containing the outstanding conclusions that have been
reached during the twctily-livu years
that/ the experimental farms were
under the directorship of Dr. Wm.
Saunders, recently retired.
This review which has been prepared hy Mr. .1. p. Spencer, U.S.A.,
editor of the publications branch,
tells of lessons thai have been learned concerning fertilizers, cereals, fodder, crops, farm field work, live
slock, horticulture, arboriculture,
chemistry, poultry, weeds and plant
pests, lu addition many of Un- recent developments of the farm system are enumerated. Il is shown
that not only have the farms and
stations been Increased In recent
years to fourteen but great advancement is being made in all of lho
older farms. This review which is
tastefully gotten up, has been is-1
sued for free distribution by the Pub-.
Mentions Branch of the Department!
of Agriculture at Ottawa.
Now that the Conservative press
is openly advocating the abandonment
of all efforts toward local defence
and a policy ot permanent contribution, it is fitting lo recall the foi
lowing statement by Sir itichard
McBride, premier of British Columbia, in London a year ago ,,u the
question oi naval self-defence:
"This is a mutter which closely af-
feots British Columbia," he said.
"Since the withdrawal of lhe Pacific
squadron we have been left practically defenceless on the Pacific coast,
We have been greatly Impressed with
the vigor null strength id Hon. Win-
slim Churchill's naval policy, ami wc
have hope and confidence Hint any
naval scheme in which be and the
Canadian government concur will restore to British Columbia a full and
fair measure of naval protection."
Docs Sir Billiard McBrldo regard a
squadron based on Gibraltar ami
having as its special duty lh;* keeping open of the Mediterranean route
io India as a sufficient defence for
ihe Pacific coast of Canada? Is Ir
content io see the Pacific left without anv naval force what soever, s,.
that the supremacy of the empire iu
European waters shall become oven
mote indisputable Ihan il already Is?

The Anglo-Saxon nations on the
Pacific regard the Yellow Peril as I
their serious and particular menace. |
Their opposition lo unrestricted immigration from the Orient Is based
principally on economic grounds, although uno, west I on ably national ami
social considerations enter Into the
situation. This attitude, they contend, U prompted hy the fnutinct of
' self prvtwrvatiwi, which fo thn    lirst

imperial Institution founded hy
Count 'ikuma, former prime minister^
nf Japan, deals with the Japanese
side of the question ia an article
which recently appeared in the .la-
pan Magazine. lie lakes the
ground that there is ;1 "White
Peril," ami lhal the defiance uf
justice un the part of tho Anglu-
Saxon nations in not recognising
yellow men must in the end provofee
trouble. lie slates the peace propaganda of t'he while people, who all
thc same time are unwilling In render justice, as the veriest hypocrisy,
and declares that lhe Japanese people
will not abide the suggestion of their
Inferiority. He reviews lhe his-
lory of lhe -European and American
nations, recites the aggressive wars
ia which they have been engaged,
and contends that in the face of the
record, in comparison wilh the
white races, "there is no indication
of any peril of yellow ag^ressiiin at
As showing the professor's attitude, Ihe following extracts from his
article arc of interesl:
"At the present time Australia is
endeavoring in induce Immigrants to
.settle in that country. Agents of
lhe commonwealth advertise endless
acres of fertile land only awaiting
people to occupy Hiein. Even the
passage money of prospective settlers
is being advanced or paid by lhe government. The Immigrants are promised every assistance iu settling
down, even lu the loan of the necessary funds. Their children will be
educated free in the national schools.
Then the notice is conspicuously given that only white people will he
admitted. Such notices appear ovenj
in the public press.
•■Practically the same attitude pl'O-i
vails in Hritish South Africa, Canada and the I'nited States. Asiatics
can enter only with the greatest inconveniences. In Hritish Columbia
it is openly slated that no Chinesi|
or Japanese should be employed. To
enter that country Chinese havo to
pay $500 each to the government.
"Nu\v from lhe point ol view of
thc yellow races all this seems most
arrogant and unfair. To seize the
greater part of lhe earth and refuse
lo share il wilh the races who are
hardly pressed f<»r territorial space
at home, even when thc privilege is
highly paid fur hy hard labor, is So
manifestly unjust that it cannot con-
t inne.
"In Australia, South Africa, Canada and the United States there arc
vast tracts of unoccupied territory
a wai t ing set t lenient, and all hough
the citizens of lhe ruling powers re-
fuso to take up the land, no yellow
people arc permitted lo enter. In
Canada alone the unoccupied territory is said to be sullicienl to supply
one-half uf the world with wheal.
Thus lhe ffhlte races seem ready to
commit to the savage beasts and
birds whal they refuse to Intrust tu
Iheir brothers of the yellow races.
•Kveii a yellow fisherman gleaning
the sea along some solitary island
coast is watched and apprehended for
encroaching on the white preserves.
Surely tin1 arrogance and avarice of
the nobility in appropriating to themselves the most and the best of the
land in certain countries is as nothing compared with the attitude of
the races toward those of different
"Viewing lhe matter seriously, for
it is a very serious matter indeed, it
ought to bu said that every delianco
of justice must in the long run provoke revolt. Just as in the labor
world, if the capitalist is unfair lit
his division of profits and the laborers are ground down, Ihey will    not
forever submit, so in the International world, unless justice obtains between race ami race, there will     he
trouble.'* .   ,

Mis. Leo's story is a typical   his

brings relief. It would bo just as
effective it used lirst.
Newbro's Herpicide makes tho accumulation ot dandrull impossible

No matter what the claims ot others, Herpicide  is    lh dy "genuine

Tin* partnership of Sir William
Mackenzie and Sir Donald Mann,
who only a while back passed beneath ibe gltdlng-imachinc of knight
hood, has won distinction for a res
sou rather unique. Not only hove i
schoolmaster ami a lumber-Jack
built and equipped the Cauadl
Northern railway in Ibe face of tho
bilteres! adversity, but tbey still
own it.
Usually the slory nf big American
railways has contained two chapters:
one written by the pioneer. lhe
builder, the man wilh the idea, the
other penned more delicately  by   the
ftnanolal     diplomatist     who    imped   son would give,
that harmonized with the rough duf
ies of William Mackenzie. Maui
sharpened his pace. The sound of
■his mighty sleps, made the lirst
traveller glance backward; bis gait
slackened. When the big fellow
caught up wilh him he turned and
nodded.     The other nodded, too.
"Going for grub," admitted Bill.
"Same here,"  sympathized  Dan
That was tbe lirst meet ing of Mackenzie and Mann. It was sonic
years afterward that an actual partnership came about with a contract
for a small western railway as
tlieir lirst pints' menu; but there
is litt'e doubt thai in the stroll lo
Kicking Horse town .some keen nnd
stealthy analysis of each other's
strength was paving the way for
one of the finest business coalitions
ever known.
Mackenzie is commonly spoken ol
in exaggerated terms; but he s
neither wi/.ard, alchemist nor goblin,
lie attains his marvellous ends after
the manner of men and the works of
nun. He is perfectly normal flesh
und blood—not much more than five
feet of it, either.
His jotirneyings hero ;""' Ihere,
bis positive delight in brewing a
mystery, his cautious radicalism, his
colonialiug method in trniisactlons,
an* those, perhaps, ol a hundred oilier beads of greal organizations
across the face of the financial
world. lie is in every detail a
business .scientist. His lieutenants
are usually treated witli large salaries and scant sentiment.
He. does not, assume io be his
brother's keeper, but on no account
must that attitude be presumed by
others. He lias all the crisp, curl
ruthlessness of a Napoleon applied
to tbe warfare of elevated finance*; nor bad the Little Corporal a
liner fund of persistence, economy ol
effort*, swift perception, self-control,
or more absolute judgment of his
fellow-men as productive or non-productive units in some high-efficiency,
grist mill.
A short while ago his solicit
pea red before a commission ol
Kederal government at Ottawa,
ing it necessary to explain lo
members of parliament bis personal
anxiety to obtain a charter from
one place to another in the wesl of
Canada, the lawyer remarked, frankly; "Gentlemen, tbis is no picnic for
me, 1 nssurc you. One day Sir William drops into my office, 'We are
going to run a line between these
two towns,' says be, throwing down
a map. Then I try In till him I
daVe no charier. 'Well, why iu
blazes haven't* you?' That's al
I pack my grip and come

Ids time tbe deed of that day
has passu! across tin* tongue of Van*-
ada—liow the Canadian Pacific and
ibe Grand Trunk held (be metropolis
of Canada as a jealous monopoly,
scorning Ibe efforts of the Canadian
Northern to enter lhe cily by " any
Known route. To purchase an entry
1" Mont real would have required
more cash Ihan could have paid a return. And thai was (lawless logic—
in so far as conservative vision
could embrace the situation.
Al the back of tbe eity loomed a
high and thickly-wooded hill, called
Mount Royal, which effectually, con*-
(Ined the flow of traffic and the
spread of population to tbe comparatively narrow strip between its base,
and the curse of the SI. Lawrence
river. To thc farther side of the
harrier lay an area of cheap land,
rendered sn through the indirectness
of ils street railway facilities,
I believe the idea struck "Dan"
first. '•Bill" weul down lo look it
over- Then silence—a long, exasperating lull, during which only tbq
drip, drip of a brimful newspaper
story coursed through Ibe daily
columns. But it spilled at lasl,
right to the dregs.
And the country read that day
how Mackenzie and Mann bad secretly purchased seven-miles of dirt-cheap
land hack of the mountain—how they
wero to drive their railway into lhe
hear! nf Montreal hy tunneling the
base of Ihe hill; how the direct route
thereby effected would send Ihe value
of the land purchase into thirty millions of prolil by creating a new residential district within a few uiiuu-
tes trolley ride of lhe heart of the
metropolis; how lhe brilliant engineering coup would take away the
back-breaking burden of tbe tunnel's
cost, pay for the terminals, and
leave a long line of money-bags as a
surplus fur (he,company's treasury,
Sir Donald Mann is tbe unsung
genius of the Canadian Northern
combination. He receives few* dc-
palations; b." seldom makes comments
to tbe press; be- is not tlie social
ambassador of the system by any
action or pretence; only recently has
he bothered much wilh the political
life of the western provinces or tbe

A teacher in Oregon has hit upon
a novel plan of bringing the school in
closer touch with the home. His
scheme is to give credit for indus-
triaMvork done al home, lie works-
it out by crediting the pupils with
work dime according to a pre-arranged schedule. Tho boy who
builds the tire in the morning is
credited with fi minules; milking a
eow, 5 minules; splitting and carrying in wood (12 hours supply), 10
minutes; cleaning horse, 10 minutes;
gathering eggs, 111 minutes, and so
on. Some of the tilings tbe girls;
are credited witb are: Blacking
stove, 5 miiipules; making and bakiing
bread, 1 hour; making biscuits, 10
minutes; preparing breakfast for
family, M minutes; washing and wiping dishes (1 meal) 1") minutes;
sweeping floor, a minutes; making
beds (must be made after school),
each bed live minutes; arriving at
school with clean hands, face, teeth
and nails, and with hair combed, 11)
minutes; retiring ou or before 9
o'clock, Ti minutes, with a number of
other credits, .covering the whole list
of work that may be done by boys
and girls on lhe farm. As a further
incentive to lhe boys and girls to do
home work, contests are held, and
those having tlie most credits re.
ceive. prizes. When a child has h'OO
credits it would bu granted a holiday, hut not oftcner than one in
every twenty days. The parents
send in slips each day showing what
work the children have done. The
ellect of the wholo plan has been an
eagerness on the pari of pupils to
do the different kinds of work. Children that, before needed urging to help
now become eager to -do the work.
It. bas developed a now interest in
tbe school and bus brought the
home and tbe school closer together.

The joint committee on federal a)
to roads now in session at Washing
Urn, has hud submitted to it a pi
for aiding in mad improvement lhal
strikes us us being tin* most com
prohemsivo anil far reaching we hav
yet eotnc across. The plan wa
suggested by lion. Jonathan Bourne
jr., who has spent much time an
thought iu developing it. Tin* plan
is outlined in a pamphlet jusl. Issued
by the government printing office at
Washington, and though it has not
become law, il looks as if Ihe plan,
perhaps in some modified form,
might be converted Into Icgts'in Ion.
We commend the plan to Cairn1 ans
in parliament and out Interested in
tin* promotion of better roads.
In working oul the plan, Mr.
Itaurno aimed at insuring co-operation between tin* federal government
and tin* states; ai making ii practicable, simple and so framed as tn
insure Hie most intelligent and honest expenditure of funds, whether
contributed by Ihe state, the Inderal
government or both; at making (he
federal government's contribution or
plan of co-operation of such a character as to induce the slates to uu-'
dertake road construction, Improvement and maintenance actively, intelligently and extensively; and encouraging not only construction, but
Insuring improvement and maintenance of roads already built or being
built; at having the money expended

In the building     up of a federal bur

aid or co-operation insure an entiit-
able apportionment ' among the *18

In brief, the suggested bill provides that in order to establish, construct, improve or maintain public

States, iu denominations of $2(1 or
multiples of that sum, payable in
fifty years, and bearing interest, pay-
ablei semi-annually, al -l per cent

fund shall   lie

cording to the total land area,

sus, the total assisted value of

of public highways in each of the
several stales, that any slate iu applying for any part of its share of

Provision is made for the creation

One can readily see that with
proper facilities for building and

these large sums iu lhe various
states covering a period of fifty

work over a,number of years. It
also provides for the maintenance of
the roads,  a very  Important feature.
Tlie plans strong features as presented In the committee at Washington are: Incentive to the stales
for activity and expedition in mad
construction by utilizing th.' superior credit of the federal government;
the establishing of practical and desirable co-operation between thc fed-
oral governments and the. states;
team work between thc federal specialists on good roads and the state
specialists, without subservience in
ihe slate Instrumentality to any
federal bureau or department and
the establishment nf a practical concrete plan for n long period witb definite knowledge as to the liability
of the federal government.
Of course, Ihe success of the plan
will depend upon how lhe three per
cent issued by the federal govcrn-
menl will he taken up. If this is
taken up in q large way and can he
paid olT in fifty years by means of
Ihe sinking fund provided for, the
whole scheme looks like nn effective
