hundreds in the throes of death.
They are fools, to he sure, and sn

snow-capped throughout the greater

good impression of Cranbrook's delightful situation. It has an elevation of 3,1100 feet. Land ot a more

scarce in British Columbia, consequently the term "prairie" bas been
applied in many cases to tbe few
hundreds or thousands id acres of

Cranbrook stands is known as "J
seph's Prairie." From the botto
level of these valleys the land rises
in terraces, known as "bench" lands,
to tlie base of tbe mountains. The
bench lands of the Kootenav Valley

East Kootenav district. 1 was
much surprised at tbe enormous
stocks earried bv some of the retail

boxes of fruit and canned goods lo

I bad tbe pleasure of spending
Christmas dav at Cranbrook Christmas in Canada is a thing to be remembered for ever after! In Cranhrook no oue is allowed to ro without a Christmas dinner of tbe verv
best kind. The dining rooms of ail
tlie hotels iu the city ure thrown
open free of all chnrge for the great
evening meal, and Die guests all dine
together at one long table loaded
with dainties lit for a royal (cast.
The menu ol the dinner provided at
the Hotel Cranbrook would, I think,
he a revelation to most people, when
it is remembered that Cranlirook is
only a small town nestling iu a
narrow vallev high up iu the Rocky
The eatables I selected from this
comprehensive menu to satisfy a
practical rather than sentimental appetite were all that tbe heart and
palate could desire.

there is no work to tie done on his

In the next naval war the crew
of a battleship pounded hv tbe
terrible modern sbclt-flro will become   neurasthenic    and even insane
when tbey are not actually killed.
That is the opinion of French naval
experts after certain cruel experiments on dogs made during gunnery
practice with the hulk of the battleship Nena for a target.
The unfortunate dogs were shut up
aboard the bulk in a place which
could not Ik1 reached by shells, and
the object of the experiment was to
ascertain whether thev would he suffocated or otherwise Indirectly injured hy the shell-lire.
It was found that tbe docs did not
die tit* snlToeation or poisoning from
the fumes of the exploding shells, hut
that the repeated concussion and
ear-splitting noise of the bombardment bad a remarkable psychological
e licet.
The dogs became melancholy ami
timid, hiding them solves when called.
When lei out of their confinement
thev are said to have commit led suicide bv jumping into the sen and allowing themselves to sink without
making nny attempt  to swim.

After some six years in this district 1 am each day becoming more
strongly of the opinion that in the
regulations for the Inspection and
fumigation of nursery stock Ibis,
and similar sections of the province,
ate getting decidedly the short end
if the deal to tin* very decided advantage of those districts adopted to
more tender sorts and species and
also those (-nU-r|irisiiig Individuals
therein engaged in the propagation
le of nursery stuck. I consider Hie possibility of every man,
thai makes his living oil tbe land,
being able tu have his own "vine and
lig tree" lor family fruit supply, to
be of more fundamental Importance
Western     Canada than that     an)
• or more local sections Bhould
have ibe ability to supply (Item with
these necessities or luxuries, cull
them what you will.
Granted this, ymi and I and all
unbiased people who have though!
ui the matter, know thai in tins
province there are districts—our own
to a certain cxtcnt—others in a
greater or less in which, in spite of
ihe assurance of Interested panics,
it is folly tu plant the varieties
most recommended by the nurserj
firms and fruit experts of more fav-
ml districts. Personally, 1 am
Iso of the opinion, that even a
hardy variety is less resistant to
severe conditions if propagated aud
grown for one or two seasons iu a
mild climate with a long season of
growth. 1 do not blame tlto nursery firms for advocating the sorts
they do for tbey do not know, but 1
must say certain people in these districts are not blameless wbo advise
newcomers that all sorts of delicate
varieties can Ih- grown, when I am
quite certain thev will never be seen
to produce a'crop of fruit, and who
sain at the mention of anyone planting or advising Russian apples,
American plums or bush cherries,
(latberiiig up such advice and opinions as I could 1
sel out several varieties of apples some years ago, anil
while I was not so wild in my folly
as to plant (iruvensteius, Spit/.cn-
bergs or Newtons and similar sorts,
1 did venture on Mcintosh, St. Laurence, Tolmans and others of like
hardiness at Ottawa, yet these have
not thrived here sufficiently for mc
lo feel that I would plant more than
a sample or two of them again.
Kussians and Wisconsin and Minnesota seedlings are objected to by
planters further south and west as
being summer and fall apples mostly
hi those sections, hut that objection
falls to the ground in this and similar sections, even the Duchess being
here not a summer hut a fall apple
and the Wealthy raised here becomes
an early winter sort and similarly
all varieties arc here considerably
later than in the special fruit ' districts.
What man having ten to flftv fruit
trees fur home use is uot better satisfied with a fair yield each year of
so-called inferior varieties in apples,
plums aud cherries, which would.
however; be of a quality never found
iu the same sorts grown in a more
favored locality than to have a possibility of a meagre crop one vear in
live from a like number of the line
quality sorts?
Now I come to the point 1 wish to
make. Where are we to get these
trees Of sorts such as I mention''
We must go to the Ha'-otas. Mrnne-
sota and Manitoba. What succeeds
there we may be certain of here
Bul here we butt up against our
provincial regulations, tbis stock
must go down to ibe coast for Inspection anil fumigation, and 1 have
yet to see an eastern shipment get
hack to this district, after going
down there ami being subjected to
their treatment and their methods
of repacking, in a condition ti» encourage i>ne to plant it. I would be
ihe last one to say this is done to
discourage ultra-provincial buying,
but cert.iinlv the proposal that fur
the benefit Of this side of the province a station should be established
at Medicine Hat or other such point
to at lend to shipments from tbe
east was        very summarily
turned down, nominally because
there was not enough business for
it, but bow anyone could expect the
business to come before the practical!1] prohibitive regulations now
governing it are changed is beyond
my comprehension.
1 do nol wish to be misunderstood
.»> advocating outside buying for districts that have nurseries within
Ihelr own limits growing what is
adapted to them, hut 1 do say we
have yet to get nurseries tinder conditions and of varieties suited to
manv of these more vigorous sections, wilh short seasons of growth
and the necessity for very early ripening of wood, and lill we get' such
I think these districts might be
treated a little more fairly, nnd I
would ask those Interested in such
matters lo give this point some unprejudiced consideration without giving wav to the (ear that we will
Inlure the district bv admitting lhat
only hardy kinds will prosper here.
In to date there is nothing to base
anv other advice on nnd those who
indiilire in it nre onlv creating a
boomerang for the district.

The split In tlie Conservative
party ut Ottawa is much more pronounced than outsiders imagine. It
is statist by (hose who ought to
know that quite a number ul Conservative members an* insurgent because promises given in caucus ol

in the house on certain members
were broken. It is even specifically

The attempt of Tlie Toronto News
lo make scape-goats of Foster, Hag-
Karl, Sprmilc uml George Taylor and
lhe utlici whips, all "remnants ol
the old Conservative party," is also
resented here. These men are nol
responsible for the parliamentary
policy that the Conservatives have
pursued in late years. Tbe insurgency Is against this parliamentary
policy and those who made it and
floated it out, more than against
discredited Conservatives so-called.
It is Mr. Borden's house policy that
is in question, und those who were
associated with him in making it.
Monk did not make ll. This is tlie
main issue.
The selection ot Sir. Hubert}*, ol
Montreal, to act as deputy leader,
the lirst step in the re-organization
announced by The Toronto News, is
regarded as quite in keeping with
what has happened in the past.
One outstanding mistake ol those
win, controlled the aflairs ol the
party was tbe acceptance ot a salary
for tlie leader of Ihe opposition. Mr.
Barker, nf Ham'lton, negotiated
this matter with the minister nt justice of the time, and Mr. Borden was
cognizant of what was going on. The
Globe has been taunting Mr. Borden
ever since and saying that in some
way he was hound to he subservient
toward the administration.

The yi ar 1009 will he marked in
the calendar as a red letter year in
the history of the crusade against
consumption, The movement received u greal Impulse frum the congress

was held in Washington, I . S-, in
the autumn of 1808 to consider the
further measures    to be taken       to
lamp out this dreadful enemv to the
liie and happiness of mankind. Canada iu common with the rest of
North America, perhaps we should
sav the whole civilized world, has
participated in the renewed and in-
crt-asod uctiv:t\ which resulted from
the deliberations ot the congress.

There are sn many dllTcrenl klmli
of Incubators nu the market for
people to choose from, some nr

I will here make a few suggestion:
ol what an Incubator should be (but
dn be careful mil tn buy a name or
a theory). As 1 make my own Incubators I will here give you some
pointers as to how lo choose a
good incubator. There are some
goods exactly as there are some
good.hens, which I call the model
liens and which no Incubator can
beat for notching eggs. All bens
are not alike. Where vou liml
model ben Ihal sticks to business
there are perhaps half a dozen that
does not. To return to tbe Incubator, we naturally want one lhat dues
as well as the model hen.
First pointer.—I prefer hot water
In hut air. Mv reason for this is
as follows: In the hot air incubators,
beat pressure is often ealled venlila-
limi. For Instance: As air is
healed it expands. When the air
(tbe beat) is used over ami over, as
the ease with man)  hot air iucii-
tors it gets poisoned, and as stated it is heat Instead ol nir. The
air having hem burnt over aud over
again through passing Into the in-
■ubalor hv tho lamp ehimiiev, thence
luwn through tho eggs and back
igain up hv the lamp chimney lo
,-gg chamber again, it really makes
beat with the air burnt out ol it*
Lei them call the arrangement self-
vent Million, an torn a tlo ventilation "r
whatever thev like, tlio fact remains
Iruc that     the air is burnt up—con-
imed l)V the beat.

First let me auk tlie question: Why
is our ventilation so very simple iii
uur dwelling houses, hospitals anil
sanitariums'.' and yet sn extravagantly Scientific in an incubator. An
Incubator that has a whole lot of
tritreer* valves ami ventilation slides
attached', l havo no use for. My
bum experience willi incubators unit
poultrv teaches me that there is no
scientific vent ilui ion among house
carpenters, but there appears lo Ik-
some who ure experienced poultry
and Incubator men, who nine
hohhv of theorizing on ventilation
with tlie assistance ami drawl ti" of
Utile arrow points to show tbe
course of the air. This enlarging
on tlie necessity uf pure air appears
plausible ami reasonable tu a oorsoii
wbo bus bad no time or Inclination
to reason tbe thing out. Ninety
nine per cent of poultry raisers have
not the time to dig up ancient history on old time, discarded ideas, ol
We want to discern hetween prue
Ileal ami theoretical ideas. From
vears of experience on these mutters
I have come to the conclusion that:
Quack doctors uud (piuek ventilators i would make a very good pair of
fakirs, as in either Instance their
scientific phases ure their onlv stock
iu trade. Today. U I were buying
an incubator, I should look entirely
at the mechanism of tlie m-v-hiue,
ami let the other fellow hi v the
ventilation talk. I should then be
buying the real tliiue. while vice
versa the other fellow would be buying a theory. Many n worthless incubator bas been boosted ami sold.
The system ol chasing rainbows
has served to bewilder hits of purchasers. Now let me nsk the
query? What is there about a liens
ncsI that would justify a lot of
ventilation slides in'an incubator'
Of course all Incubators should Ih
ventilated at the time thev ure made
at the factory. They could not then
say our poor hatch was caused hy
not opening or shutting the ventilation dampers. They would ant then
have the opportunity to shoulder lhe
blame un to the operator for failing
to hatch the engs. There is just
this about it: If an incubator does
nol need air ut one time, it does not
at another, It is easy t« sit* that
lliere is m-lhing about the incubation
of eggs that suggests different degrees of ventilation. After all is
said and done it is lhe results
thai count. Incubator should have
jusl enough air to keep it pure,
neither more or less, und should be
of even temperature at the ton of
the tray. Of course no air should
puss umier the eggs. I'nder my
egg chamber of incuhutor I have no
nursery for chicks, ft is not necessary, besides it takes lots of oil
to keep il warm for three long
weeks. I have    an     independent
drawer, which is covered underneath
and which is kept closed during Incubation, At batching I open a
place prepared nnd which is just
large enough for the chicks to drop
through. When a few have fallen in
thev are taken out and placed tn
mv nrelesK brooder, win-re they can
lie well cared for.
In my next letter I hope to say
something about hahy chicks.
Temperature, moisture and ventilation are things to which lots of
people are susceptablc. Thev use
hiii words ami terms uud the most
ibsunl tbinits can he whitewashed by
good advertisement writers and that
advertisement mav look j"st as kimhI
and (K-rhapK have Iwiee us many
claims as an already known uml
good practical thing.
Lots of people in hutehim! time ure
limbic (as other things mav claim
ihelr attention) to run to an incubator fifty times a day and as
,.iauv limes nt night fund when they
need iheir rest for the next -Hay's
tabor) to at lend to the oocniug nud
shutting of ventilation slides. An
Incubator when ouee it has gained
Ihe temperature of 1«.1 degrees
diould attend to itself and will do
I the machine Is properly regulated.
'thev say the hen is a brainless
fowl and vet she has the sense to
hatch cues nml does not need an
onevelooedln to assist her. Possibly we shall hear the next thing that
lineotVO has invented green goggles
for her lienshlp to wear in winter
lime—when the snow Is two feet
deep-so that she mav imagine It Is
Hie good old cummer time.
The moisture nnd ventilation ques-
lion are in most respects the same,
for if we add lo the moisture we
must also add to the ventilation. Or
attain, if we curtail lhe ventilation
we must also curtail rhe moisture.
Hv medium ventilation lhe best work
is secured and lust when we have
reached lhat point the problem is
I once heard ot a man who bomcht
an incubator because the companv
from whom he bought it said lhat
it could lie run on twenty-five (3"»
iciils) worth of Oil. When tbe man
nol through hntchlnq he hail used
four enllons of oil at Jill cents a gallon—$100 worth. fie wrote the
enmnnnv nbotll It, and thev had the

After another all day debate in the
commons, tin- Miller bill, prohibiting
the business of book-making, pool
si'lliiiL?, nml generally restricting
Rambling as a business on race
tracks nr in connection witb any
sporting event in Canada, was practically killed on a very close vote.
The opponents of tbe bill who supported John ll. McColl's amendment
based on the Knglish law, providing
for limiting the duration of am- race
meet to eight days with not more
than two meets on anv one track in
the course of a year, and further
strengthening the present law in regard to restricting betting off race
tracks, carried a majority of the
house with them.
Mr. McColl's motion to strike out
Ibe lirst clause of tbe Millet bill,
with a view to substituting his own
amendment was carried in the committee stage hy a vote of 7H to 77.
Mr. Miller and "the supporters of his
bill declined to compromise on tbe
McColl bill and a motion to strike
out the second clause of ihe hill was
then carried bv H"> to 7*'t.
A motion that the committee rise
and report progress was then carried. Sir Wilfrid Laurier stated
that if a compromise between the
two parties could be agreed upon,
the "overiimi'tit would »ivc opportunity for further consideration '-f the
bill, but as there seems to be no
prospect ol this, the result of the
vote practically means that
condition, with regard to horse racing and bookmaking in Canada will
remain unchanged for tbis year at
lloih Mr Miller and Mr. McColl,
state that tbey will bring their respective hills before parliament again
tins session.
The house is a unit on the question
of prohibiting hand boo*i hettln*. and
the tipsters advertisements, and if
the amendment were conflncd t" these
matters there     miirbt   still be a
chance ol the legislation along these
lines being enacted, but the supporters of the bill are not disposed to
accept anv compromise which would
leave a door open to bookmakers bv
which thev could escape nrosecutton,
and in view nl the treneral desire for
earlv prorogation the oossibMitt of
any agreement mutually satisfactory
is ver*  remote

The branch ol the live stock commissioner at Ottawa bas issued a revised edition of the directory of
breeders of pure bred stock In Canada. According to the preface page
the work is a compilation of Information received through correspondence from breeders in all the provinces In regard to the size of their
1 breeding herds, and the number of
males and females of the several
breeds tbey have for sale. The directory is prepared to assist persons in locating herds, studs and
(locks in their respective neighborhoods, or In distant provinces . Irom
which pure hnd animals mav be procured. It Is stated in the din-dory
that copies will be sent to rancb-

olbers who may apply for them.
Mr. IL L. Borden has decided to
house-clean his political nest. He
has decided that the time i.s ripe for
drastic treatment of some of bis
recalcitrant followers and for a
change in some of his lieutenants
who have had their day and ceased
to he. The events of tlie present
session have convinced him that
moral suasion and a desire to please
everybody in a parly of conflicting
elements and containing too manv
self-constituted tacticians are not
co m pa table with real and effective
leadership. Affairs in tho party
have lately reached a crisis, and as
the only remedy for the lac. of
party discipline and coneslou, which
has been so much in evidence during
the past few months. Mr. Horden,
ufter consultation wilh some ol bis
closest friends among bis followers,
has determined, so to speak, to take
the bit in his mouth,
Announcement of some radical
changes in tbe party organization in
the house and in the dulv recognized
deputy leaders ma«- he expected soon.
It is understood thai there will be
new Ontario and Quebec lirst lieu tenants and a new list of whips. Hon.
(ien. Foster, who has heen seriously
sick for the past few weeks, suffering
irom nervous breakdown following
the mental strain of his lihel action
against The Globe, will no longer
act as Mr. Borden's lirst lieutenant.
He will continue as a private member of the bouse for the balance* ot
the oresenl parliament, but will give
up bis post us opposition chief critic.
After the dissolution of parliament
be will probably retire tn private
Mr. Monk is also slated for retirement as Mr. Borden's chief lieutenant
in Quebec. Members of the opposition believe be lias not "plaved

Strom*? demand has been made for
bis disposition. Mr. Monk is also
ou tbe sick list at present, and is
.mcratim* in the south. He will
probably be replaced bv Mr. Donertv,
member for St. Anne's. Montreal.
other changes in tlie opposition

Oolong, and Oolong is one of tbe
