of all.
As society is now constituted the development of
a new power, the setting of the wheels of a big industry in motion means sometimes the displacement of
a number of ltands and increasing the riches of one
individual or a group of individuals banded together
to exploit tllat power. As it is our mountain streams
and torrents could be so harnessed that they would
do work now done by hard manual labor anrl the
result should be a reduction of the hours of labor and
a production of light, heat and power and placing
those commodities within the reach of everyone.

healthy and sometimes leads to good results. Vancouver needs above all tilings honest, healthy criticism. We have got into a habit of boosting, we allow
people to come here and boost ad lib and a check on
this indiscriminate adulation is necessary���and is
needed. But to be useful criticism must be well in
formed, must be based on accurate data, and 1 venture to assert that The Standard's criticism of the
Tranquille Sanatorium is ill timed, unfortunate and
mischievous because it is not founded on fact, is based
on inaccurate, perhaps maliciously given information.

In Vancouver the negligent outfit at the City Hall
have allowed the public market to become a pest spot
and a nuisance. Though its location is not at all that
is to be desired, being upon False Creek, yet there has I
not appeared a sufficient amount of administrative
ability at the city hall to carry this enterprise along.
The Water Street wholesalers have been dumping
good food into the incinerator in order to keep the
prices up. This is a fact which everyone should know.
W'e are at the mercy of some of these dealers. A

A SUGGESTION HAS BEEN MADE TO
THIS OFFICE BY A PROMINENT HUSINESS
MAN THAT A MOVEMENT BE STARTED TO
HAVE THE CAM HIE STREET GROUNDS CONVERTED INTO A PUBLIC OWNED MARKET.
There seems to be good sense to this suggestion.
There is a great need for a market and the Cambie
grounds are well located. To use the ground;, would
only mean that two football matches a week* wouU
be interfered with.
It would cost little to put an iron shed over a portion of the grounds and such buildings as might be
required. To this point producers and consumers
might come on market day fur the general benefit.

CULTIVATION OF FARM AND GARDEN   ^^^^-"-''^-"���,,-^-m-"
VALUABLE  WORK
AT AGASSIZ FARM
Hundred   Acres   Under   Experimental
Operation���Fine   Herd   of
Holsteins
Few people, say* the  New "A est-1
minster   Columbian,  realize  the  work
that is being done  by  the   Dominion:
government  at   the   Agassiz   Experi-
mental  Farm, and it is impossible  to
do  more  than  give   the  briefest  idea;
oi  the   valuable   work   undertaken   in
the interest of the consumer and pro-i
ducer equally.
Over a hundred acres are operated j
and the superintendent, Mr. Hincks,1
is keenly alive to thc importance of.
his work. It is all done with thej
object of improving methods, cheapening thc product and assisting the I
farmer to produce the greatest pos-|
sible quantity at a minimum of cost
in time and labor. Experiments are
conducted systematically for a period
of four or five years.
The government herd at Agassiz
consists of seventy Holsteins, principally grade animals, with a pedigree bull and a young bull. Thirty-
two are milkers, the rest being heifers and calves, and that operation
even is bein^ utilized for experimental  purposes  in  several ways.
There are 108 sheep of the Dorset
horned grade class, with pure bred
ram, on the pasturage grounds. Of
seventy-two pigs two are boars and
eleven brood sows, all of the Yorkshire breed. As an instance of the
experiments conducted it is interesting to study the data obtained by
the officials from hand feeding, self
feeding  and  trough  feeding.
Poultry is represented by over 1400
birds and the upkeep of the farm is
assisted by the sale of eggs and roosters for breeding purposes. The
breeds are Plymouth Rocks and
White Leghorns. Mr. W. S. Moore
has been for years in the employ and
is  a  mass  of valuable  information.
Another most important subject of
experiment is ensilage, and it has
been found that an average of five
years gives the following figures
which farmers might well take to
heart: Cost to produce 1 lb. fat by
clover ensilage, .10.24, by corn ensilage, 29.6; cost to produce 1 lb. butter, by clover ensilage, 24.19, by corn
ensilage, 23.68; cost to produce 100
lbs. milk, by clover ensilage. 8774. by
corn ensilage, 88.61. Besides these,
peas and oat ensilage is laid down in
tlie three silos which aggregate sonic
3500 tons.
Two other special features deserving special attention of the Fraser
Valley communities are the study
and experiments in bees and'honey
production, ten hives, and the preparation of Stilton and Cream cheeses,
the latter work being done under the
control of a lady expert who is rapidly making a great reputation for the
Agassiz  productions.
The government has recently authorized the rental of 25 acres for experimental growing of mangel-wur-
zels and this is now being ploughed
with a view to improvement of seed
production.
COMBATTING THE
FOREST
FIRES
Constant   Patrol   the   Only   Effectual
Means  During  Danger  Period
The primitive method of combating
forest fires is to wait until the fire
assumes alarming proportions, endangering life and property, and then
Id organize a fire-fighting force to
try to put it out. Unfortunately this
system, or lack of system, still prevails in many parts nf Canada. Too
frequently, these untrained volunteer
fire-fighters have actually assisted
the spread of the tire by indiscriminate back-firing. Under the best of
circumstances, the chances of extinguishing a large forest fire by human efforts ah me are sniall. ln many
eases, the best that can be hoped for
is that the fire may be checked until
assistance conies in the form of rain.
As has been said by a woodsman
whose nationality may be inferred,
"The time lo put out a fire is before
it starts.'' The value of constant patrol of the forests during the dangerous period is becoming more fully
appreciated every year. The organizations entrusted with the protection of
the forests, such as the Dominion and
Provincial forest services, and the cooperative fire protective associations
in Quebec, arc all devtoing their main
efforts towards efficient partol. The
establishment of look-out stations for
the detection of fires, and the installation of telephones and signal systems by means of wliich the location
of fires may be promptly reported, or
assistance summoned, are component
parts of the patrol system. The use
of aeroplanes has been experimented
with in Wisconsin for fire detection,
but their utility under ordinary circumstances, especially as a substitute
for other forms of patrol, has not yet
been demonstrated. It is .however,
to bc anticipated that the application
of aviation to fire detection may develop to a material extent with the
return of aviators after the war, and
with thc development of a smaller,
slower or less expensive form of hydroplane  or  aeroplane.
Thousands of dollars have been
spent annually throughout the Dominion in fighting fires, which could
have heen prevented hy the expenditure of a comparatively small amount
on patrol. By efficient patrol, damage from forest fires can. to a very
large extent, be prevented; while fire-
fighting comes in after a considerable
amount of damage is done. As a protective measure, one dollar's worth
of patrol may easily be worth a hundred dollars' worth of fire-fighting.
Rangers should be impressed with
the importance of this phase of their
work. The man who puts out a fire
with a few shovelfuls of earth or
with what water he can carry in his
hat, may bc performing a greater service than one who, by failure to take
such preventive measures, is compelled to organize a large gang of
fire-fighters to check a conflagration.
The ranger, who, by his influence in
the district, can secure the co-operation of the settlers, campers and all
others to prevent the setting of fires,
may have an easy job, but he is of
more use to the country lhat Ile who,
by failing to attend to his patrol duties, is obliged to work (lay and night
fighting fires which need never have
reached such proportions.
Not all fire can be prevented;
many are started by lightning, and
others from causes which are purely
accidental.
The only camp fire in the woods
that is "out"' is one thai is "dead out."
DON'T WALK IN THE SUN:
TALK IN THE SHADE:
In the hot summer weather, when one
does not seek exertion, there is no greater
agent of comfort than the telephone. Having
the telephone at hand enables one to talk
anywhere���to the store, to a friend, out of
town. No errand-running, ho travelling, is
necessary.
The telephone enables one to stay at
home and be cool, yet keep in touch with the
live world around.

PROTECTION   OF   CROPS
Crop  Protection   Means   Crop   Production.
'Canada loses over one hundred
million dollars worth of her staple
crops every year through the depredations of insect pests. A large.portion of this loss could be prevented.
As we cannot afford to lose the
smallest portion of our grain and
other food crops during the present
critical period when the production
of food is of supreme importance, the
Dominion Department of Agriculture
is making every effort to prevent, so
far as possible, losses due to insect
pests. Crop protection must go hand
in hand with crop production.
Insect pests are not initially noticed
or reported until they have caused
considerable damage. Therefore it
is urged lhat the closest watch be
kept on all crops for the first appearance of any insect pests or damage.
Immediately such damage is observed
steps should be taken to control the
outbreak in its incipient stage. If the
pest or thc method of control is unknown speciinents of the insect and
its injuries should be sent at once to
the nearest of the following sources
of expert assistance: The Agricultural Colleges, the Provincial Departments of Agriculture or tlieir local
District Representatives, the officer
in charge of the nearest Dominion
Entomological Station, or direct to
the Dominion Entomologist, Department of Agriculture, Ottawa, for examination; and advice in regard to
control measures will he furnished
without delay. Letters and packages
up to 11 ounces in weight may be
mailed to the Dominion Entomologist, "Free," but postage will be required on letters or specimen sent to
the other sources of advice mentioned
Do not delay reporting insect outbreaks or sending inquiries; delay
may involve serious losses that could
otherwise be prevented. Write immediately, or telegraph if the outbreak is serious. Clean farming, the
securing of vigorous growth in young
plants and good cultivation are the
best protective measures against insect attack. Keep all crops constantly under supervision for the first appearance of any damage iu order that
it may be cheeked without delay. Increased crop production involves increased protection against pests.

MANURING   MARKET   GARDEN
CROPS
A little brochure has just been issued by the Agricultural Department
at Ottawa, and that can be had free
by addressing the Publications
Branch of the Department, for which,
at a time when universal attention is
being paid to vegetable gardening,
there should be a large demand. It
is entitled "The Manuring of Market
Garden Crops, with special reference
to the Use of Fertilizers," has for its
authors Frank T. Shutt, M.A., D.Cc,
Dominion Chemist and B.Leslie F.ms-
lie, .CD. & A., F. C.S., and is Bulletin No. 32 (Second Scries) of the Di
vision of Chemistry. As the title
suggests, thc bulletin is intended
mainly for the information of market
gardeners, but seeing that the rules
for the cultivation of the soil and the
seeding and growing of vegetables
and plants are common to all, its contents are really of general import,
despite thc fact also that a good deal
of attention is paid to barnyard manure The importance of manure in
market gardening can scarcely be
overestimated, thc bulletin rightly
remarks, adding "Stable manure has
been and probably always will be the
main standby of the market gardener.
SUNFLOWERS USEFUL
Russia averages in normal limes a
yearly export of nearly 150,(XKJ tons
of linseed, 30,000 tons of rapeseed,
and 30,(KX) tons of hemp, poppy, sunflower and other seeds. The oil obtained from sunflower seeds is suitable for margarine manufacture, and
the cake is a good food for live stock.
Thc unrefined oil would compete with
nut oil and cotton oil, and eht refined
product would make a good substitute for olive oil. Sunflower seed is
largely produced and crushed for its
oil in Russia.
GOOD  ROADS ARE VITAL
Every mile of new roads enables
the farmer to extend his operations
and to make greater profits. A certain amount of road-building should
therefore come before farm work itself. The prices of materials have
risen and the labor situation presents
difficult problems, but instead of the
construction of good roads being suspended, it should be pursued consistently throughout the period of adjustment to war conditions.���Kredericton

WOOL SHORTAGE
To slaughter for meat at this time
a breeding ewe or ewe lamb is high
treason, and we believe our great interests are sufficiently patriotic and
unselfish to devise some measure to
save onr precious breeding stock. If
this isn't done, Lord save our sheep
industry!
Millions of western ewes and ewe
lambs were lost by storm and insufficient feed. Our wool clip this year
will fall short many millions of
pounds. The western lamb crop is
the lowest in years. In some states
it will run not over 40 per cent.; in
some sections not over from 10 to 15
per cent, were saved. Something
heroic must be done���something besides talk and prayer are needed to
save the wool industry of the United
States.

In September, 1911, the electorate
decided against the policy of the Liberals led by Sir Wilfrid Laurier. Six
years have almost gone by with many
experiences and results, very costly to
many through the change. Any person with an eye of observation can
se< how it has affected the masses of
our Dominion. That. Sir Robert Borden, leader of the Monopolist Conservative party has been a gambling
conspiracy,
Before  the  war   came  in    August,
1914.  the  country  was just  beginning
to   realize   that   the   Borden-Rogers-
White   controllers   were   to   cater     to
the gambliers of the  North American
continent.    Any one who goes to lhe
trouble to investigate the situation in
our country at that time will find that
I the  cash  money  in   Canada  had  cen-
teralized fully true third between  1911
and 1914.    This was before they could
blame   the   war  for  anything.    Taken
; from  our  own   resources,    from    the
j farmer-,   the   real     lumbermen,     the

How Can Our Service To You
Be Improved
The suggestions and criticisms of our passengers regarding the street car service are
earnestly solicited.
As it is impossible for us to check every
transaction with the public, we ask our patrons to let us know wherein the service does
not meet their needs.
Although a public utility company often finds it
necessary to appeal for a readjustment of conditions
to enable it to carry on business satisfactorily to the
public, it still retains the desire first and last of serving the public.
The stationary fare in face of increased costs, unfair competition, increasing taxes, etc., have recently
shown that a readjustment is necessary if the company is to go on giving service.
The payment of a cent or two more for transportation may assure for you the continuance of the street
railway service, the cessation of which would cause
untold inconvenience and greatly increased fares.
Give your support and cooperation to the
street railway service.
The trite significance of the fate of
plucky little lielgitini, the havoc and
destruction wrought by the Huns in
northern France, took some little
time to crystallite in the minds of
British women the world over, such
barbarity vvas unbelievable, so utterly
foreign to anything with which they
had ever been brought face to face
amongst civilized nations, but once
the truth was grasped tliey threw
themselves heart and soul into the
assistance of the allied cause with an
endurance and tenacity absolutely unsuspected.
Women's Hard Lot
One of the most striking results
arising out of the effects of the war
has been the splendid mantlet in
which women all over the world have
arisen to the need of the hour, adapted themselves to exigencies, ami in
every way proved their worth, and
right to an equal citizenship with
men.
That there are still slackers in
plenty amongst women as well as
men, we know, but tliere will always
be some who cannot or will not forego tlieir comforts and their vanities
even at the call of a nation's need.
Hut most surely in time to come tliey
will feel regret and shame, their
children too will feel it for them, tliat
they did not do their bit however
sniall in helping their countries' cause
for honor and freedom.
The lot of women at such a time
as this is, and has always been, a very
hard one. For them there is none of
the excitement and stir of the fight���
excepting, of course, that brave band
who as nurses share all the dangers
of the front���theirs is the patient
waiting, the devotion, the giving of
their beloved ones, .a sacrifice often
made with a smile on the lips and a
breaking heart.
It is well for the vast majority of
women that the war has given them
so many opportunities for work, real
hard work, which acts as a narcotic to
the pain of thought, and healthily
tires their bodies, while enabling them
to play as active an important a part
in the stress of battle as those of
their men who are enduring the horrors and dangers of the trenches.
The Food Question
There *re a large number of women who are unable for various reasons to take an active part in war
work, and these can help very materially at home.
.The attendant perils of war, those
which always follow in its train are
facing us very squarely just now, the
worst among them being a shortage
of food. We, in the colonies do not
quite realize as fully as we should the
possibility of this, in spite of thc ever
soaring prices of our staple necessities, and the right time to guard
against a possibility is when it is still
only a  possibility.
We do not know how long the war
may last, and those in authority warn
us that it will not be over for many
a long and weary day yet, therefore
the food question daily becomes a
more serious one.
Therefore it is up to all women to
see to it that no waste occurs in their
household menage, and to give due
thought to the properly nutritious
feeding of her family, minus extravagance   and   unnecessary   luxuries.
The women who do this will be
most certainly doing their bit to help

men of the Empire during that time,
but it not an easy task to do so, for
the heroism, loyalty, devotion, sacrifice and patriotism wliich have been
so freely rendered is beyond the
power of words.
That they will be still further called
upon to give and endure, is, I fear, an
undoubted fact, but we can only hope
and pray that August, 1918, will see
the victory of the Allies, peace once
more restored, and those of our men
who are left safe at home with their
courageous women folk, who have
fought with them shoulder to shoulder through all these dreadful days.

What a vogue the good old fashioned gingham is having just now. It
must have quite forgotten the days
when it was never seen beyond th
kitchen or the schoolroom. The smart
people now wear gingham frocks, or
gingham collars and cuffs on their
shirt waists, not to mention gingham
hats and sunshades to match, really
never knew wdiat the material was
quite like until the dressmakers
brought it out from its humble sphere
to add to the idea of economy and
simplicity in dress. Of course these
gowns, waists, hats and sunshades of
the humble gingham are not cheap,
as a great deal of time is spent on
the designing and cut of these apparently simple garments. Still we can

call crazy work, made of a great
many sniall pices of rich colored
silks and satins or velvets joined -together in a higgledy-piggledy manner, afterwards embroidered over thc
seams with many colored silk threads
This is now quite the latest thing in
hat trimmings, belts or reevers.
Another innovation in favor for
young girls particularly, is that of
dresses cut on the straight lines of
the peasant frock, and made of boldly
patterned furnishing linens and cretonnes.
Most of the evening gowns which
are being turned out by the great
houses of fashion are cut on the long
straight lines of the old Italian models, and are most picturesque in effect; there is absolutely nothing looped, or sticking out, or draped in any
way.
Of the cotton sacks which contained flour, and were sent by the American Relief Committee to Belgium,
many have been returned embroidered by the Belgian children as a token
of gratitude.
The designs chosen, usually thc
flags of the countries twined about
with messages of thanks worked in
red cotton���are at once pathetic and
obvious.
These curious are eagerly sought
after as war relics of great interest,
in fact many historical societies intend to preserve some of these sacks
as war mementoes.
WESTERN WOOL   IN   DEMAND
Canada Will Supply About Ten Million Pounds This Year
That Canadian wool is likely to be
purchased  this  year  in  large  quantities by the British government    for
_   military purposes is the substance of
those at the front, not only because, a communication received by an Al-
every atom  of available  food    stuff! berta  firm  from  a  big  wool-buying
will be wanted to keep our gallant
army in fighting trim, but it will also
be the means of impressing the
younger members of the community
in a practical manner with the real
seriousness of this world's war, a
knowledge which can only be of
moral benefit to them; with so much
sacrifice around its, teach them to do
their sniall part.
Women Workers
Not only as workers on the land,
on railways, tramcars and in offices
banks adn in innumerable other positions are women taking their part to
free men for the fighting line, but in
almost every branch of engineering
and chemical work, as well as aeroplane and submarine making, ship and
tank building.
There is no doubt that the part
played by women of the British Empire during the last tliree years, and
as it approximately will be through
such time as the war continues, will
always stand out as the finest combined effort which the female population of any country has ever made in
freedom's cause, and the energy, patriotism, adaptability and devotion to
their country's cause will never cease
to be regarded as one of the most
=t striking and prominent features of the
war.
Mr.  Kellaway,  M.P.,    and    parlia-
concem in Boston, Mass. The conf-
mumcation states that advices have
been received from English brokers
that the British government will take
the wool clip of all the British colonies including Australia, Cape Colony
and Canada. Canada will have about
ten million pounds this year. This
Boston firm (J. Koshland & Company) have already bought by contract this year about 640,000 pounds
of wool in Alberta, the price being
m  advance  of  last year's.    The
far
cost this year runs from 31 to 401
cents per pound, whereas last year it
was on an average of 29 cents.
