at the present time, we have decided 011 placing Mr. Stewart on
the regular force, also another
We do not think, considering
the position which Mr. Brima-
comtie holds, that it would be
wise to retain him as constable
and gaoler, as through his having
so many other duties other than
under the commission, conflict
would be sure to arise.
We, therefore, beg to inform
you that wc have, so far as the
commission is concerned, decided
to dispense with his services. We
have also hilly made arrangements with the chief, that as soon
as the matter can be arranged,
tl.e two constables should occupy
tlie rooms up stairs, to act as
wardens at night, and, if neces-
si'<', in Ihe dav time.
A'ould you, therefore, kindly
make arrangements for Mr. Hrima-

From the B. C. Poultryman
Every year we get a greater or
lesser number of inquiries as to
how long eggs may safely be held
(rom the time they are laid until
How long eggs csn be kept (or
hatching and how long they ought
to be kept, are two different propositions.
Other things being equal, the
fresher the egg the stronger and
better ihe chick.
Whether or not it hurts an egg
to hold it over (or two or three
weeks, depends largely upon the
egg. II it contains a strong germ,
the damage may be little or none;
but if the (jeiin be weak to start
with, it certainly will deteriorate
We make it a point never to set
eggs that have been held (or more
than two weeks and always try our
best to set them inside of a week
after they have been laid.
Eggs intended (or incubation
should be gathered at least three
times a day at this lime of ie.it
unless Ihe day be unusually pleas
ant for this season. This shojild
be done in order to prevent chilling, a frequent cause of germs not
developing at all, or, at the best,
dying in a day o. two.
Alter the eggs have been gathered, they should be placed in a
room where the temperature is between 50 and 70 degrees at all
The idea ol turning the eggs
every day or so while they are
being reserved for katching is one
that seems to be pretty generally
practiced among farm poultiy
raisers, but therr is no reason for
doing this and it is only labor.
Sometimes we are inclined to think
thst it is harmful as well as unnecessary, because we never turn
our eggs until they are placed in
thc incubator and we will not sidestep anyone when it comes to
getting results from our eggs.
Now is the time to do everything. Many people desire to
have a flock of pure blood chickens
but each year they delay in making a decision where and what to
buy until the season is too far advanced, and then they say to
themselves, " It's too late, I'll
wait till next year and then I'll
have some good stock sure." The
next year it's the same thing over
again, and so these good people
drift along, never getting anywhere. Now is life not too short
to waste in such a manner ?
Wouldn't it be more sensible to
go to work and do something or
quit talking about it ? A setting
ol eggs from some reliable breeder
will produce enongh birds to lay
the foundation for a pure blooded
Why not order a setting today
—now ? You will find the advertisements ol reliable breeders
right in this paper.
Much ol the bowel trouble in
little chicks is caused Irom chilling. Thc temperature in the
brooder should not be below 90
degrees the first week, when it can
be gradually reduced. The chicks
themselves are a pretty good
thermometer to go by.
When they coddle it is a sign
their quarters are not .warm
enough. Keep it warm enough
so they will scatter out in the
brooder or under thc hover.

Dear Sir,—What a pity it is
that advocates of temperance in
the matter of consumption of
alcohol cannot themselves be
temperate in discussion. It is
my opinion that intemperance of
language is the worst form of intemperance there is, an opinion
that is shared by many thoughtful
men. May I refer, as an example
of inebriety of language, to the
execrable letter signed " Ratepayer," that appeared in ths fir-*!
millibar ol the Nortli Vancou or
News I It is no matter for surprise that the writer welcomes the
shelter of anonymity for, to put it
very mildly, he transgresses, n rj
recognised decency of debate
He may, however, be congratu
lated  on adopting a literary style
in  such complete harmony  with
tha: of the editor, whose very first
words are "NorthVancouver bas
underwent," etc.
Your truly,
A. J. Picton-Warlow.
