There are as many varieties of
potatoes as there are sinners, and
I am acquainted with about fifty���
potatoes I mean. But fhe subject of
this description is not "potatoes,"
just spuds."
The spud is largely grown by Chinese and poor whites; it is grown on
the same soil from its own seed year
after year and shipped early before j
the disease in it or Its inferior quality
gets too pronounced. The spuds
that ripen are left in pits to rot or

restaurants. Spuds are responsible
for half the dK-brces and half the

for

with Mr. F. J. McKenzie, M.P.P., in
the matter, and Thursday went on to
Victoria to approach the government. ��

the matter will be again consi'diered,
and it is expected that the board will
ask the government to desist in their

SEED CONTROL ACT.
re��*
A case of general interest to farmers and others throughout British
Columbia was recently brought un'dier
the violation of the Seed Control
Act when the Sylvester Feed Company of Victoria was convicted of
selling cabbage seed of low vitality
without indicating the percentage of
the same. Under Section 10 of the
Dominion Seed
^^___^_-,_._._,..,,-n oeeu Control Act all farm
bring  a  district   into   disrepi.te  and | and vegetable seeds which germinate
������"���^^^^^        'lower  than   two-thirds the  standard

is eminently successful in the former
but fails egregiously in the latter.
Spuds can be easily detected with
a sharp knife and n good pair of
eyes. A thin slice is taken across
the grain and laid on a dark surface, say a hat or coat sleeve. The
core will then be plainly seen. Yes,
a spud has a core; some of them
are all core���water core at that. The
outside rim or protein will vary from
a hair line to maybe a half-inch In
thickness. Between this rim and lhe
core will be a rim of rust or blight;
if there is any in .the spud, most
prominent at the seed end.
It is not a bit of use naming fhe
spud as the old familiar varieties of
potatoes are unrecognizable after two
or three years of spudding. The
test remedy for spuds is prussic acid
or cyanide of potassium, about three
drops administered interna'ly to the
"spudder." This is not considered
murder, any more than war is;
though probably there are judges in
this county who would fine a man |
for killing a spudder. Still it is
worth it. Some growers don't know
any better; some don't care: and It
really ""loesn't matter. They are
born that way, same as a rattle
snake. But that Is not saying that
they are to be tolerated in a respectable community. You never see a
spudder In a church or In a saloon.
He is too mean to be good and too
stingy to be bad.
vitality of good seed for that particular variety must be labelled with
the percentage of germination.
It Is the intention of the Dominion
Department of Agriculture to strictly
enforce all the provisions of the Seed
Control Act of 1911, and anyone
handling seddB should see to it that
their seed complies with this act.
The Dominion Seed Laboratory at
Calgary, Alberta, is at the service of
anyone desirous of having seed tested either for vitality or weed seeds.
Copies of the act and information as
to the same may also be obtained
from the same address.

In the aggregate these splendid prize
winners represent a large amount of
money���tens on tens of thousands,
which is tangible evidence of the
prosperity of ihe farmers of British
Columbia and of their faith in tlie
future of Canada's Far West.
In the van of the parade came the
grand six-horse team of Clydesdale
geldings from Colony Farm, followed by two of the farm's great stallions, "Bowhill Baron," a noted
Clydesdale, and "Brigham Radiant,"
tho great hackney stallion.
Following came the well-known
Canadian-bred Clydesdale stallion,
"Baron's Craigie," the property of
Capt. Watson, looking as fit as ever.
This fine horse is the sire of the
celebrate;! prize-winning filly at the
Alberta government farm, Saskatoon.
He is only seven years old, but. has
won forty-nine championships. After
him came Mr. John Savage's "Ilal-
ley's Comet," another fine Canadian-
bred Clyde, winner of the reserve
championship at this fair, nnd Dr,
Wilson's splendid imported Clyde
stallion,  "Fiscal Fighter."
Next in line was Capt, Watson's
three-year-old "King Viveis." an imported Clydesdale stallion that won a
first and reserve championship here,
and last year took first place in class
in Scotland, beating the now celebrated "Dunure," winner this year
of the. Cawdor cup and Bryden
shield. After him came Mr, .Savage's Canadian-bred "Royal Savage,"
,i tine example of B, C, breeding.
"Grandvlew Cedrlc." a two-year-
old Canadian-bred stallion owned by
Shannon Bros., of Cloverdale, was
next In line, preceding Mr. Jos. Gil-
mour's "Terra Nova," another Canadian-bred animal of quality,
Then came the latest proof of the
adaptability of Brltsh Columbia to
fine breeding, three grand- yearlln,-
stallions, Capt. Watson's "Mlgnon."
Mr. Savage's "King of Westham"
and   Watson's  "Dunraglt,"  all  bred
ners here aud at Vancouver and Victoria,
Dr. Wilson's standard bred stallion, "Del Rialto," winner of first
place in class and championship at
Victoria, and first in class and championship in the standard and thoroughbred division here. Behind
him was Mr. Clair Paxton's standard
bred stallion, "Zembona," and another fine animal in the same class,
exhibited by Enderby Bros.
In the standard bred and thoroughbred classes were also Dr. Swin-
erton's fine mare, and splendid entries, the property of Messrs, D. C.
McGregor, F. W. Rounsfell, J. H.
Doherty, and A. C. Hummer.
In harness to buggies were a number of exceedingly good looking
roadsters, winners in the ring for
Messrs. A. Davie, Dr. Swinerton, Dr.
Henderson, Dr. Fetridge and W. S.
Dickie.
Following the prize winning horses
came the champions and ribbon winners of the cattle paddock. The
beef breeds were given the honor of
leading fhe parade. The big beefy
Shorthorns from the Lieutenant-
Governor's farm at I.adner were in
the van with the champion bull, the
head of the stock yard leading. Following them came the Polled' Angus
from the same farm and from the
of C. E. Hope, of Langley.
the shaggy-coated Galloway
herd from the stock ranges of W. E.
Tees, of Lacombe. Alta.. came next,
making up a trio of beef breeds, the
representatives of which would be
hard to bea.t in any province in the
Dominion.
British Columbia is distinctly a
dairy province In so far as stock husbandry is concerned. This was clearly shown in the long procession of
dairy prize winning cattle. The
proud dignified Holsteins formed
the vanguard of the dairy division
of this army of prize winning stock.
Led by the grand stock bull of the
Essondale Farm of Coquitlam, the
Holsteins were the admired of all
the admirable array. Close on to
the heels of these came the Holsteins
from B. Gordon, of Dewdney; Steves,
of Steveston, and Mortson & Son, of
Fairfield, Sask.
Ayrshires, the largest dairy breed
represented, came next with J. W.
diss's champion stock bull from
Washington state leading. He was
followed by the other prize winners
of his harem; Jos. Thompson's Ayrshires from Chilliwack.
Those from the farm of R. Xess, of
DeWinton. Alberta, and Mortson it-
Son, of Fairfield, Sask., came in the
following order.
The little fawn and brown Jerseys
from the farms of B. H. Bull & Son,
of Brampton, Ont., and Grimmer
Bros., of Pender Island. They are
an exceptionally good lot and well
bedecked with prize ribbons. Guernseys next to the Ayrshires were most
numerous, Chilliwack breeders are
strong on thi3 breed with good representatives. Banford Bros, and
Chas Hawthorne, of Cheam', and Dr.
Knight, of Sardis, nave splendid
animals, and their entries formed the
rear guard of the grandest stock
parade ever held at Westminster
Fair.

(From the Victoria Colonist).
In its presentation at the Xew
Westminster Assizes, the Grand Jury
said that truck-farming had been
practically killed by Chinese gardeners, who peddle produce from door
to door. If this is the case, who is
responsible? Manifestly the people
who buy from the pedlars in part,
and in part the white farmers who
do not provide some other means
whereby householders can get vegetables delivered cheaply at their
houses.
There is no sense in our deceiving
ourselves in this matter. If the
Chinese are controlling the market,
II i. only because, they saw there was
a market to be controlled, and were
energetic enough to take advantage
o; It, To say this is not to favor
��� , ienl conditions, for we think that
it would be far better In u score
of ways if the white farmers had
bi en able and willing to supply
households from day to day with
such vegetables as they require, but
they have either been able but not
willing, or willing but not able.
Whatever is the true explanation,
they have not done so, and the result is the very unsatisfactory condition of things of which the Grand
Jury complains. I' is hardly necessary to add lhat It would be vastly
t i the advantage of the community
to have the farm lands surrounding
the cities cultivated by white market-gardeners dealing directly with
consumers.
But we have 'o deal with things
as they are. Who bring flsh to our
doors to sell? Indians or Chinamen
only. Most people, we think all people, would prefer to 'deal with a
white fish pedlar, but there are no
such people, and hundreds of housekeepers prefer to buy their flsh at
their doo-s to going down town to
ret it. It ought not to be- forgotten
in discussing questions of this nature that we have no white population willing to do the things thnt
the Chinaman or the Indian is willing to do, and a very little consideration will show any one why-
have   not
Every month that has passed since
the defeat of reciprocity justifies the
action of the people in that respect.
Never was the trade of Canada better and with every prospect'this year
for a bumper harvest the bide of
plenty will roll on. Figures just to
hand and which cannot be gainsaid
by the specious arguments of the
Liberal press tell the story.
Ten Per Cent. Ahead.
The total trade of Canada so far j
is about  10  per cent,  ahead  of its!
record   of  last  year.       During  the j
month   of June   last   the   aggregate
trade of Canada, including coin, bul- j
lion   and   foreign   merchandise   handled,  was  $98,800,852,   as   against i
$S6,757,585 in June, 1912.    The Increase is $7,013,267, or 8 per cent, j
For the three months ending June j
30  the total trade of all sorts was j
$238,130,851, as against $237,212,-!
779 in  tbe first quarter of 1912-13, |
the  increase  being   $20,918,075,   or j
8.8 per cent.
Aggregate Trade,
Deducting coin, bullion and foreign goods, the aggregate trade in
imports entered for consumption in
Canada and domestic goods exported
was $91,576,431 for June, antl $250,-
479,S46 for the three months, as
against $82,834,080 and $229,242,-
321 respective in 1912. ' The increases are $8,787,851, or 10% per
cent, for June, and $21,237,525, or
rather over 9 per cent, for the three
months period.
Exports Higher.
But more cheering than ail is the
noteworthy increase in exports. The
figures show domestic goods exported in June amounted to $33,619,425,
as against $29,246,770 in June,
1912; the increase is $4,372,655, or
11 per cent. For the three months,
exports of this class were $83,520,-
276. as against $76,226,776 in April,
May and June of 1912, the increase
being $7,353,500, or about 9 Vs Per
cent.

Liberals Answered,
Liberal pessimists wbo argued that
the defeat of the Laurier policy
would be the downfall of Canada's
position in the markets of the world
are surely answered. The Borden
policy of the development of Canada
along her own national lines Is having a beneficial effect.

VETERMARY NOTES.
Blooding (excessive bleeding)
which sometimes occurs after caJl-
ing, can often he controlled by dashing cold water over thc loins of the
cow.
Bloody milk is caused by injury to
or disease Of the udder; also by
functional derangement of the udder due to excitement in heat, eating of irritant plants, etc. in all
cases n reduction In rations and the
administration of a purgative dose
of Glauber's or Ensom Salts is advisable. Milk sometimes becomes
, il tinged after standing a while.
This latter condition is due to the
presence of a micro-organism thnt
enters the milk after milking.
Thorough attention to cleanliness
end sterilization of milk utensils,
will  prevent  the condition.
.Mastitis (inflammation of the udder) may be often induced in a
cow by rough milking when tho
teats are sore or chapped. Chapped
teats may be relieved by gentle rubbing with vaseline before and after
milking. Several applications of
zinc ointment to sore tents, after
cleaning them, will rellove most
cases.
Bleeding from the navel cord ln
a calf may be stopped by tying lt
firmly with a clean piece of string.
Before tying always bo careful to
examine the cord to Be ethat It does
not contuln  a  loop of the bowel.
}HJ_K PRODUCTION IX  CANADA.
A very comprehensive bulletin,
Milk Production in Canada, has just
been issued from the press, and
forms No. 72 of the regular series
of bulletins of the experimental
farms. Its author, J. H. Grisdale,
Director of Dominion Experimental
Farms, has made milk production
a subject of special study and experiment for many years, and has embodied in this bulletin tho most valuable of the information obtained.
As suggested by the sub-title
(Crop Rotations, Dairy Barns,
Breeding Dairy Cattle, Feeding, Care
and Management of Milk Cowsl the
subject of milk production is not
as simple as might appear at first
glance. A maximum output of milk
is dependent upon many factors, and
the author's endeavor has been to
treat these as fully, clearly and
simply as possible, so that the bulletin may be of value to the general
farming community, both in aiding
them to start along correct lines,
and also as a work of reference on
those dairying problems which occur from time to time.
The subject of milk production is
treated  under  the  following heads:
1. The farm chosen, the rotations fo'lowed and the crops crown.
2. The breed of cattle selected,
and the breeding methods followed.
". Stables and care and management of the herd.
4. Milking and  care of milk.
5. Feeding methods and ratiors.

Mr, Campbell goes exhaustively
into the -Ubjeot and shows by dia-
giams, tables and statistics, the history, growth and future of the lumbering  Industry  In  Canada.
"The lumbering industry stands
on tho threshold of a wonderful development, although at the present

one side, or even smacked ap smart
ly in front in a manner trying indeed to most physiognomies. An
Oriental turban of black velvet with
a straight stiff ostrich feather tuft
in front and a jet bridgle swinging
below the chin is guaranteed to make
the wearer look like the pride of the
harem.
Alongside of this a tam-o'-shanter
of soft green sage velvet with a
peacock feather jutting portly from
one side, vies with a quaint Empire
poke bonnet of ivory and rose brocade, a chou of rose aigrettes on one
side and a trailing streamer ofl
black ribbon. Hobnobbing with this
dainty creation is a conventional
sailor shape of taupe velour with a
trimming of tiny shaded yellow
wings banding the entire crown. A
little round butterboat of a hat in
amethist velvet has a single butterfly of shaded purple feathers perched bouffantly at the back of the
brim. Indeed, the butterfly, whether in feathers, lace, tulle, velvet or
metallic brocade is a fad of the
moment as is a chic hat trimming������
quite the butterfly of fashion as
'twere.
You can readily see from these
representative fall models that there
is a wide latitude if not many wide
hats in your choice of fall chapeaux.
It is simply the shape and the angle
at which the feather fantasy is placed that makes or mars the autumn
hat of  1913.
A new and hideous touch on many
of the black velvet models is a binding of shiny black patent leather
around the brim. It is ugly and in
congruous enough to be Immensely
popular with perverse Dame
Fashion. The only trimming tolerated in lieu of feathers seems to be
a high standing halo of wired lace
outlining the crown of many a black
velvet shape or else the niching of
tulle so omnipresent this summer.
In the mad struggle for novelty
even the heretofore extinct bandeau
lias been dragged forth from oblivion, and many n flat hat of lace
is set up on a band of black ve.vet
to simulate this passe and inartistic fashion. Goura, paradise and
numidie have not outworn their
popularity by being worn out all
summer, and together with wings,
ostrich plumes and quills feather
many a hat. In the most brillinnt
shades come these feather trimmings
as if to offset the sombre backgrounds of the inevitable black velvet shapes. Emerald, green, royal
blue, brick red and all shades of yellow will lighten up many an already
light head.
'The bridle on bonnet shapes and
turbans seems to have a strangle
hold on Miss La Mode's swan-like
throat, and the tarn, ringing all the
changes, appears with or without
brim, turned up at all angles, loose
and floppy like a bag or stiffened
and wired into a flat pancake-shape.
Before the fall is well advanced,
however, it is safe to predict that
the tnm will be hopelessly declasse.
Its early taking up has cheapened it
and robbed it of its saving grace of
exclusiveness and originality. Some
few large hats, of course, are seen,
a concession to the picturo-hat-type
of femininity. The smartest ones
have brims very short on one side
and wide on the other. The wide
side turns up at an ucute angle. Ostrich plumes enmasse are their favorite trimmers, touches of fur or the
wired hales of lace. It Is predicted
that much ribbon trimming will soon
be used but ns yet nothing but the
fluff of feathers seems to have come
to a head. There are just three
things to insist on when you sally
forth to purchase your autumnal
head-piece. It must be small, of
black velvet, and have a feather ln
it.

Hui Case u Dismissed,
(From Tlie British Columbian,}
"You can't stand there and murder me any more," shouted Frank
Picket-new, at Harry lirock, in the
police court yesterday morning.
I'lckeriiew was In the witness box
and Brock was In the dock. Picker-
new did not mean that Brock had
made a habit of murdering him In
the past, he merely meant that he
bad threatened to do so, but he was
excited and restive under Brock's
c ross-xamination.
""Doth men are fishermen and the
Pickernew-Brock feud is well known
on the river. Last May Brock was
bound over to keep the peace with
Plckernew and this morning the latter had a terrible tale to tell of how-
Brock and a friend bad come to his
house and tried to terrorize him. Unfortunately for the success of Pick-
ernew's contention, another fisherman, Frank Dicks, sat in the witness
hex later on with bis head bound up
nnd told how Brock bad come to his
rescue alter PickerneW had put him
out with a club. Thtre was corroborative evidence as to this and It
was also iworn that nobody struck
Plckernew. so magistrate Edmonds
dismissed the case, warning both
parties to be good.

There were many fine animals In

some classes there was no competition, no awards went to second-

rhe feature of the day's judging
was the splendid show of Clydesdales. In every class there was keen
competition, and visitors were greatly surprised at thi*. quality of the
���horses entered. Particularly notable- was the high quality of the young
etock. Among these Capt. Watson's
"get of sire" and "product of mare"
entries  were remarkable.
Cr.pt. Watson won t li *_*��� stallion
championship wit'h the well-known
prize-winner, "Barron's Craigie," a
horse  that  is  today   as  fit  as  ever.
The two-year-oldi filly class was
probably the best in the ring yesterday, the winner, D, Montgomery's
entry, with which he later won the
heavy draught championship tor

of the best of her class shown in

Young Herd,
After the Forster herd had been
disposed of Mr. Berry sold a herd

L. M, Crockett, of Glen Valley. They
were a fine lot of grade Holsteins
imported from Ontario last June, 18
heifers and a pure-bred, registered
bull, eighteen months old. Mr.
Crockett disposed of his herd on ac-
count of lack of feed on his farm
through water trouble.
The prices for the eighteen heifers
aggregated $1422, an average of
nearly $80 a head, and the young
bull was sold for .$105 to Mr. Alex
Vannctta, a councilman of Langley

likely looking young bull and Mr,
Vannctta believes he has made a
great bargain.

he will improve his facilities and

Goiug for B.  C. E. R.
Urging upon the minister of railways the necessity of action on the
part of the Provincial government
to improve the service at present
being given by the B. C. Electric
Co., the city council Jias approved
of a form of protest which will bo
forwarded to Hon. Thomas Taylor.
Reference to the increase in rates
is made, the favorable nature of the
charter the company holds being advanced as a reason why the increase,
recently put into force, should not
be permitted if it is possible for the
minister to prevent it.
Seed Control Act.
A case of general interest to farmers and others throughout British
Columbia was recently brought under the Seed Control Act when a
Victoria firm was convicted of selling cabbage seed of low vitality
without indicating the percentp.ge<
of germination of the same. Under
section 10 of the Dominion Seed
Control Act all farm and vegetable
seeds which germinate lower than
two-thirds the standard vitality of
good seed for that particular variety
must be labeled with the percentage
of germination. It is the intention
of the Dominion department of agriculture to strictly enforce all the
provisions of the Seed Control Act
of 1911, and anyone handling seeds
should see to It that their seed complies with this Act. The Dominion
Seed Laboratory at Calgary is at the
service of anyone desirous of having
seed tested either for vitality or
weed seeds. Copies of the Act and
Information ns to the same mny also
be obtained from tho same address.

in  Victoria.
VICTORI.A Oct. 9.���Hon. C. J.
Doherty, minister of justice, addressing the Canadian Club of Victoria yesterday, spoke of the duty
of Canadians to insti! in the minds
of those who came here from other
countries to settle and make homes
for themselves the patriotic sentiment that expressed itself in a pride
of country and Empire.
If they cultivated the Canadian
spirit in its best and truest sense
they would be fighting the battle
of Empire at the same time, for he
held that true Canadianlsm was true
Imperialism.
Speaking of British Columbia, he
said she had given many great men
to the country and kept many at
home to control the affairs of fhe
province.
