PREMATURE PUBLICATION OF REPORTS
To meet, at the same time as a'campaign of education
as to our natural wealth and is potentialities to the future
development of our Province is being undertaken, the indication of a determined opposition to this development
to the general public, hut its existence is not only a surprise but the manner of its manifestation, on the contrary,
has been in most cases anticipated, by those most keenly
interested in this development.
The eastern press has recently carried a number of
articles in connection with the development of an Iron
and Steel Industry in this Province, as projected by Coast
Range Steel Limited—and these very articles—in their
character aiTd tone quite sufficiently indicate that they
appear as part of a deliberate attempt to wreck the efforts
of years in regard to this industry.
To quote one instance, and to trace its history, in so
far as il appears to the writer.
Some weeks ago, at the meeting of the Associated
Hoards of Trade held at .Xaniamo, the Board of Trade of
that City introduced a resolution in favor of and pledging
support to Coast Range Steel Limited, whose objects are
the building of blast furnaces and the erection of such
contingent steel manufacturing plant as is best suited to
the supply of the available markets—an organization
which has succeeded in establishing a definite connection
with the foremost Inm masters of the British Empire and
llie raw material resources of this Province.
Notification of this fact appeared in one of the Victoria papers, the information being obtained through the
resolutions committee. Immediately Mr. C. T. Cross,
late respected President of the Victoria Chamber, who
beaded the delegation, was communicated with by telephone and instructed not to support this resolution.
The press reports, following these meetings, at which
the resolution was not only submitted, but also carried,
with the dissentient voices of the Victoria delegates only,
have repeatedly published the fiction that both Victoria
and Xaniamo opposed the motion. This figment has been
persisted in, despite the fact that Xaniamo introduced
flic resolution, and further, in spite of the fact that Mr.
1''. I,. Ciinlilfe. member of Xaniamo Board and the actual
mover of the resolution, has written the Victoria papers
calling attention to the error they have mack—a communication which has been published in the Victoria papers—but which unfortunately has not prevented a recurrence ot the error.
Later, the Victoria delegates reported to the directorate of the chamber, when the matter was referred to
an Iron Committee, the writer is given to understand,
had already been considering various phases of iron development for the Island, hut which had been unable to
arrive at a determination. This Iron Committee extended
an  invitation to the organizers of Coast     Range    Steel

Limited to appear before it with data. The invitation,
unfortunately, omitted to mention that it came from an
Iron Committee, and was not accepted in view of the
fact that the hole and comer method is not that followed
by this organization. Xot—as was for a moment suggested by one of the Victorians; with a view to its support be-
ing obtained by "hurrah" methods—but simply that in-
iron trade should not be able to
__ and render an unfair report.
A report was prepared by this committee and submitted to the directorate. However, it should be pointed
out that it carried the signatures of a number of Victorians, one of whom left for the northern part of the province two days before the date of the meeting to which the
organizers of Coast Range Steel Limited were invited.
Further, the report was carried in toto in the Victoria
papers before it was accepted by the directorate—and
still further—the writer, happening to be in that City,
was able to arrange that this Iron committee should meet
the organizers of Coast Range—and as a result of this
meeting, the report-originally presented was withdrawn
— the committee requesting more time to consider the
proposal. At the same time, they were invited, at the expense of Coast Range, should they deem it necessary, to
visit the office of that organization when original documents and transcript of importana undertakings would
be placed at their disposal,
Meantime, interested parties have seen to it that the
first, ill-timed—ill-founded and latterly withdrawn report
has had wide circulation—having been published in technical and other publications through the Fast.
In our opinion, it is a great pity that time should be
used in dealing with these phases of this work, but apparently it is necessary to lose no opportunity of pointing out
to our readers the insidious character of the opposition
from within this province against this enterprise. We
have pointed out in previous issues instances of officials
ol western branches of eastern institutes taking it upon
themselves to criticize—without foundation—an enter-
prize of which they know nothing—on their own admission and as proven by their later request for
to discuss its proposals. ^L^^^^^^—
At the moment of writing, the question is being dis
cussed at the meeting of (he Canadian Institute of Min
ing and Metallurgy, at Trail—and, let it be said now
without any official informations from the
the work; irrespective of the decision to
gathering commits itself.
There is no question, as a writer in Iron and Steel
in Canada has it, that there are excellent reasons—"numerous good ones"—to use their own phrase, why such an
industry as is proposed should he established on the Pacific Cast—and further—in which the eastern paper referred to contines—"there are equally good and sufficient
reasons for the eastern manufacturers—equally sufficient
reasons—as witness the before mentioned "Gentlemen's
Agreements" and the "Pittsburg—1

Editor Leader-Advocate.
Sir:—The residents of Vancouver
and the Lower Mainland have been
bilked out of hundreds of thousands
of dollars during the past 30 years
through being charged excessive prides for their coal. Seattle merchants
are advertising Comox coal at $6.66
delivered, this being about half what
is charged the Vancouver public. The
Canadian Collieries (D) Ltd., on being asked for an explanation gives out
a statement that is not in accord with
the facts, but is as credible as their
refusal to remove the Chinese and
Japanese miners from their underground workings when requested by
the White miners after the two recent
explosions, their excuse being that
there was not enough White labor,
the same being an absolute falsity.
The Company hasten to assure the
public that they can secure their coal
in Vancouver at an even lower price
than $6.65, and further state that this
is the regular market price, it is passing strange that the Vancouver consumer has been insisting on paying
$12.00 per ton when the price was
about $6.50.
Many cases of discrimination have
been published during the past years
but the public seem to enjoy being
'humbugged," so nothing was done to
remedy the situation. B. C. is stuck
for an amount of about $250,000 ou
account of the two recent explosions
because this Company must have the
honor, of being the only one on the
continent which employs Orientals underground. Seattle gets the cheap coal
and B. C. pays through the nose.

POST-WAR  COMMERCIAL
AIRSHIPS
Chief among the airships offered by
the Air Ministry on certain conditions,
but very favorable terms, to a commercial company are the R36 and
R37, the former of which is now completed, and has already been seen in
Loudon skies. She is now designated
the "G-F.A.A.F." for commercial transport, "R.36" having been her service
number, for she was designed for rnili-
lary purposes. Peace came in time,
however, to permit important modifications, and she is now a beautifully
equipped passenger airship.
On voyages of short duration she
could carry 50 passengers, for whom
is ample accommodation in her handsome saloon; but for long voyages the
number of passengers would be from
40 to 30. The saloon and sleeping-
berth furniture are extremely ingenious, and would well repay close study
by I hose interested in these things.
The materials employed are light and
strong; mos'. of the items are designed lo serve double purposes; and the
smallness of the space into which
tables and beds can be folded is astonishing.
Meals comprising the full range of
the normal British dietary can be prepared and served en voyage, and so
far as general comfort is concerned
the passenger will be better off than
on any long continental railway journey. There is less vibration, and
noise, no dust, and at least equal promenading space. In an airship there
is no rolling movement, which to some
people is a distressing feature of
steamship travel; and all that occurs
is a very slight pitching I hat is scarcely uoticeat'.e. Tfee passenger car of
•Vto-G-FA.i.J' is .131 feet in length,
and is well away from the hull and
the engine' cars. There are two lavatories. The windows in the sloping
walls give a clear view downwards.
The G-F.A.A.F. is manned by four
officers and 24 men, including two
wireless operators. In addition to the
number of passengers already given,
she could carry two tons of 'mails and
goods;  and the calculation allows for
Inn pounds of luggage to each passenger.
This is the second British rigid airship that is of purely British design
launched since the war, and in many
important aspects there are departures from German airship practice as
exemplified in the Zeppelin and the
Schutte-Lanz types. She is driven by
I hive 350 h.p. Sunbeam "Cossank" engines and by two 260 h.p. Maybach engines. There are five propellers; and
the lotal power available is 1,570 h.p.
For navigation on long journeys she
is as Independent of outside aid or of
fixed landmarks as an ocean liner; but
being provided with a complete outfit
for wireless telegraphy and telephony
she can maintain constant communication with land and sea stations.
For comparison as to size, net lift,
and speed with contemporaneous airships the following table will serve:
Normal
Volume  in Speed
Cubic, ft      Length      Miles

R33 1,195,000 642 45
LB I 1,950,000 642 50
L71 2,420,000 743 52
The R3S was the airship purchased
by the United States; the L71 and the
L64 are the surrendered German airships. It is interesting also to compare the following; the L100, a German type designed but. never built,
and the "Roma" (and Italian semi
reiki.)

*    *    •
The time an airship can remain in
the air is, of course, very much larger
than that of her cruising duration;
when her fuel is exhausted she cau
still remain aloft. But, generally
speaking, the R36 could keep up cruising speed for eighty hours; which
means that on one flight she can cover an air distance of 4,000 miles.
Against the wind that distance would
be correspondingly less, but with the
wind it would be correspondingly
greater.
By the aid of wireless and a good
meteorological service an airship can
BOmetimes evade hindering winds and
take advantage of favourable winds;
of course, by making detours. Under
these circumstances a cruising airship
of fifty miles per hour which can for
short spells,, be increased to about
sixty-five miles per hour, which would
be altogether loo slow for an aeroplane, permits certain journeys to be
successfully undertaken by airship. It
is, however,-too slow a speed for regular long-distance week-by-week services except in favourable climates. In
Great Britain, moreover, the provision
of more mooring masts—not an ex
pensive item—is ab.jOl .'tely necessary

S3S0ANADA is endeavor-
'Vj ing to regain her
after-the-war stride
in the midst of many
difficulties, — debt,
deflation and depression being
some of them.
Quack remedies and academic
theories beset her path on every
side. Some suggest that our debt
worries can best be eased by going further into debt. Others
preach blue ruin, decry their own
country and indulge in mischievous propaganda generally,
while still others look for a new
social order or some miraculous
sign to indicate a better coming
day—all this in apparent forget-
fulness of the fact that just as
there was no royal road to win
the war, there is now no royal
road to pay for it or regain our
former buoyancy, vigor and confidence.
Some are leaving Canada hoping to escape taxation, only to
find there is no escape anywhere.
In seeking for easy remedies too
many of us overlook the fact
that the greatest remedy is honest, hard work faithfully and
intelligently performed, accompanied  by   old-fashioned  thrift.
It takes time, it takes patience,
it takes grit. But every Canadian
knows in his heart that Canada
is coming through all right.
Our Experience Proves It
Look back over the path Canada
has trod.   The French Colonists, cut
off from civilization by 3,000 miles
of sea, faced a continent—a wilderness—without the aid of even a
blazed trail. They had to fight savages, frosts, scurvy, loneliness and
starvation.
The United Empire Loyalists subdued an unbroken forest in one
generation, growing their first wheat
amid the stumps and snags of the
new clearing.
The Selkirk settlers came to Manitoba when the prairie was a buffalo
pasture, and grew wheat where none
had grown before and where those
who knew the country best at that
time said wheat never would grow.
To-day the Canadian prairies grow
the finest wheat in the world.
In proportion to population Canada
stands to-day among the wealthiest
nations in the world, with average
savings on deposit per family of $800.
Canada's foreign trade per head of
population stands amongst the highest of the commercial nations, being
$192 per capita in 1922-23, as compared with $135 in 1913-14, the
"peak" year before the war.
New Opportunities for
Canada
In Canada, although prices in the
world markets fell below war level,
our farmers reaped last autumn the
largest grain crop in Canadian history, and Canada became the world's
largest exporter of wheat, thus in
large measure making up for lower
prices.
Last year, Great Britain, after an
agitation extending over thirty years,
removed the embargo on Canadian
cattle, and a profitable and practically
unlimited trade is opening up for
Canadian stockers and feeders.
"The 20th Century belongs to
Canada"—if Canadians keep faith.
The next article will suggest practical opportunities for profit making
on our Canadian farms.

Seabury's Dancing
Revue At Orpheum
Of the many dance productions that
have been a part of Orpheum programs in recent years there are none
whose genuine merit and ensemble of
beauty, agility and grace are more
pleasantly remembered than the offerings of William Seabury. This young
mati'ls a genius iif'asembling attractive dance soloists as associates, and
In staging his productions sumptuously, and is one of the foremost male
terpsichore top-notchers of the pre-
sent day. Mr, Seabury is at the Orpheum this week with his latesl dance
phantasy, which is called his second
edition of "Frivolic." It is a departure from other dance acls now in
vaudeville.
Roger Imhoff and Company present
lhal raiding Irish comedy, "In a Pes!
House." "In a Pest House" deals
wilh an old Irish peddler who, because
of the loss of his house, is compelled
lo spend the night al a wayside inn
where he has more trouble than a
one armed paperhanger.
.Ice Towle, the comedian monnlogist.
is one of the successes of the week's
entertainment. He lakes a strand of
paper and a song and music and
braids litem into a distinctly entertaining monologue.
Kenny and Holis, known as "The
Original College Boys," are this season
presenting "The Two Doctors," a
satire on medicine.
Will and Gladys Ahern present a
western offering. Will Ahern is a
cowboy, and with Gladys Ahern is
spinning a romance. This Is done with
a rope; but Will Ahern is an export
rope manipulator. While he swings
the lasso he sings and talks, Miss
Gladys Ahern doing her share of both
these things.
The Klown revue with the Ploetz
Brothers and Sisler is a piece of clas
sic buffoonery. The Ploetz Bros, are
garbed as laditional clowns, and the
sisler has a variety of carefully conceived capers. They are all grotesque
dancers.
McSoverelgn offers a demonstration
on the dlabolo. MoSovereign is the
master of the dlabolo. The diaholo
as most everybody knows, is the
scientific game, n is the manipula
lion of a hugei spool by a piece ol

of all scientific pastimes and one of
the most picturesque and Interesting.

Tlie Strand will have the honor this
next week of initiating the new season of big pictures in Vancouver when
they will exhibit the big English pio-
tluctlon, "The Sporting Earl."
This film should make a big hit In
Vancouver as it did in Eastern cities,
based as it is on the lines of two big
former successes, "Mickey" and "The
Whip." In the vernacular of Londan,
England, "The Sporting Earl" is a
"wiz," can even be construed as an
"egg," and, furthermore, has all tne
elements of a "full-fledged, pip." In
other words, it is a round of laughs,
action, fun and excitement. There is
an Earl, there is a girl, there is a big
fight, a big fire, and a corking story
concerning the Baronet, Sir Horace
Pllkington, who leaves an eccentric
will by virtue of which one of his
nephews becomes possessed of all his
fortune and the other nephew inherits
all his racing stables, and there we
have "The Sporting Earl."
Not a farthing to his name, but still
I he owner of a racing stable, which
includes the magic name of "Cheerio 'Art a Mo'," . known throughout
Eng'lsh sporting circles as the fastest colt from Ascot to Tiinbustoo, the
last named place, however, being
strictly outside the actual scene of
"CherioV cyclonic performances. The
steeplechases to be seen in "The
Sporting Earl" are battle of fleet-footed thoroughDreds with hearts of steel;
thrilling pulsating contests carrying
us over the famous English water
jumps, hazards and obstacles, and
winding up in fighting, straining neck
lo neck, finishes on the turf, where
the heart is of no more avail than
the legs, and there is where you will
see "Cheerio 'Art a Mo" comes in as
the gamest horse that ever went over
an Ascot water jump.
A big conflagration, fights, romance
and sparkling comedy figure in this
great sparkling comedy figure in this
great motion picture. The stables
hold "Cheerio 'Art a Mo" and "Quicksilver," the two stars of the Sporting
Earl's Btables, are sent up in (lames,
and the Sporting Earl's breadwinners
are saved only alter a thrilling light
with half a dozen desperate bounders,
during which the heroine and the ubiquitous dog come In for an enthuslas
lie and successful share in the pugilistic proceedings.
Oilier added features together with
the Strand Orchestra will provide an
excellent bill and patrons are assured
uf a programme worth while next
week.
] make a light farce, with a little romance and plenty of action. Again he
has triumphed, for "Why Worry" is a
laugh from start to finish. The chances are that there are more "gag"
laughs in this attraction than in any
picture Lloyd ever made. There is
little that is serious in the production.
It is just what, the comedian aimed
for—a laugh picture.
The story is laid in a romantic atmosphere with carefree senors and
dancing seuoritas, fighting hombres
and pompous generals. Throughout
this farce runs a little vein of satire—
a jibe here and there at the bloodcurdling pictures of South American
revolutions.
There have been many pictures built
around the custom and habit of our
neighbouring republics in tossing their
Presidente out of office very forcibly
and very frequently, but none that
contains the speed, the pep, the laughs
and romance of "Why Woryy."
The usual features including musical numbers on the grand organ by
Mr. Nelless will give patrons a real
first class entertainment.
Vancouver Follies at
Pantages Theatre
Vancouver's Own Follies, composed
ol a cast of Vancouver amateur talent, will be the headline attraction at
the Pantages Theatre, opening with
Monday's matinee. Presented by
Alexander Pantages and produced under the direction of Walter Windsor,
New York musical comedy director,
this promises to be one of the most
pretentious offerings seen on the local
stage for some time. The cast will
include 70 people and will support a
beauty chorus that is said to compare
favorably with any professional chorus in the Northwest.
Special scenery and costumes are
said to enhance the beauty of this
production. There will be a few
headline positions in the 'Follies,"
for everyone of the cast will have a
principal role. The revue will run
50 minutes, filled with a snappy routine of song, dances and comedy.
In support of the Follies will be
a strong bill of regular Pantages
vaudeville. The Parkers, father and
son, are billed as extraordinary athletes, their performance including unusual as well as artistic tricks.
Dolly Grey and Bert Byron appear
in a cleverly written "vod'vil frappe"
in two' scenes entitled, "A Girl's
Weigh." The pair are well known and
capable artists.
Taylor, Howard & Them have a
novel offering which they call "Mails
and Females." The act presented by
these two versatile artists includes a
snappy program of songs and dances.
The Trella Company have a sensational routine on the cycle, featuring
the "loop the loop" rider, and many
more thrilling and difficult tricks.
Lonnie Nace, a young lady of
charming personality and a big voice,
will appear in a program of popular
and restricted songs.

Harold Lloyd
At Dominion
"Why   Worry"   to   Continue    Its    Big
Sixcess   Already   Achieved,   Next
Week   at  the   Dominion.
Following rlghl on the heels of a
big week's run at the Capitol, Harold
Lloyd in "Why Worry" will coutiue
for another week at the Dominion.
"Why Worry," the title of Harold
Lloyd's newest Pathecomedy production to make the world a merrier
place to-live in, gives a splendid idea
of just the type of picture it is.
When he made "Safety Last," Lloyd
sought to produce a picture that
would shake the spine, with thrills
and laughter. How successful he was
In his efforts, picture followers know
by this time. The picture has become
established as the greatest thriller in
screen annals.
In  "Why Worry," Lloyd set out to
Rintintin, the champion police dog,
who is also a "movie" actor, appears
in "Where the North Begins," the
far-north picture announced for a
week's run at the Capitol Theatre
beginning Monday, at the feature attraction. Around Rintintin centres
most of the action of the story, the
clog being instrumental in foiling a
plot, furthering a romance, and ending
the career of a dangerous crook.
"Where the North Begins," a Warner Urol hers classic of the screen, Is
the story of the struggles of two men
for the heart of a woman, far up north
In an Isolated Hudson Bay Company's
trailing post. Shad Galloway, the
factor, lords and bullies over all, forcing his unpleasant attentions on Felice
McTavish, who loves Gabriel Dupre, a
young French-Canadian trapper.
Wishing the young trapper out of
the way, Galloway offers a reward of
$500 to anyone who will leave the post
with a load of fur, this being a dangerous mission due to the operating
of a gang of outlaws. Gubriel sels
out, in due times come in collision
with the outlaws in wait for him, and
is saved only In the nick of time from
certain death by a wolf-dog. This Is
a dog who had turned wild and joined
a pack of wolves and who, as soon as
he meets Gabriel reverts to his dog
state, and makes friends with the
young betrayed trapper.
"Where the North Begins" was filmed in the far north, amid many vlsis-
situdes unusual even to motion picture
producing companies inured to hardship and always expecting the unexpected. It wiib taken in a region
where a depth of thirty feet of snow
lay on the ground and where tin- thermometer always dropped low .

Cold Cucumber Pickle
Use medium-sized or small cucumbers. Make a weak brine and add a
little vinegar, enough to give it a
slightly sour taste. A "weak" brine
is merely water and salt—just about
as much salt as would be used in
cooking. Coarse suit is better for this,
and enough is needed lo make the
water taste a little too salty, for the
cucumbers weaken the brine. Cul the
cucumbers with their stems on, as the
stems seal them and keep the juice
from exuding. Do not wash more
thoroughly than is necessary to make
them clean. If the spines are scrubbed off the pickles may spoil. I'm
the cucumbers In this brine, and if
small, let them stand 24 hours; it
large, let them stand 48 hours. Remove from brine and drain well, or
wipe If you wish immediate action.
This same brine will do for about
three lots of cucumbers, then, if more
are wanted mix new brine with vinegar as before.
For the cold vinegar pickling use:
One gallon good vinegar, 2 ounces
ground white mustard, mixed with a
little   vinegar  and   then  stirred  Into
the remainder of vinegar, 2 ounces
whole while mustard seed, I ounces
cinnamon bark, broken In small pieces
1 ounce ginger root dried or green and
broken II pieees are large, % pound
of common salt, 2 cupt'uls of sugar.
An ounce of celery seed may be added, or any other preferred spices.
The mustard and cinnamon seem to
have a peculiarly preservative quality.
Mix all together cold, and add cucumbers as convenient. They may be added from day to day if desired, but
stir frequently, that is, daily or often-
er. This cold cucumber pickle is delicious and keeps in an open jar if
well covered.
Cucumber and Onion Pickle in Olive
Oil
Thirty-six medium sized cucumbers
peeled and sliced very thin, 12 medium
sized onions peeled and sliced thin,
sprinkled layers of these sliced with
salt enough merely to flavor them nad
let stand three or hours even over
night. Drain thoroughly; 2 tablespoon-
fuls of yellow mustard, 1 tablespoon-
ful of black pepper, '4 pound of while
mustard seed, 1 teacupful of olive oil.
Stir all togelher and fill cans with the
entire mixture — cucumbers, onions
and all ingredients.    Fill cans to run
ning over wllli good cold vinegar.
Seal. Some keep this pickle in open
jars, for the olive oil rises to the top
and shuts out the air. In most households, however, I he cans that seal the
more convenient and keep the product
clean.
Nasturtium Seed Pickle
It often happens thai there are
many green nasturtium seeds on growing plants and these nave a peculiarly
delightful pungency. Oather these
seeds before frost comes and put into
a very weak brine over night. Drain
in the morning and put into pickle
bottles. Heat vinegar and add a very
little cayenne pepper. Co\er the
brined nasturtium seeds In the bottles
with the boiling vinegar, and seal.
A Very Simple Cucumber Pickle
Choose enough medium-small cucumbers to fill a two-quart glass.
Wash and wipe and fill can half full
of the cucumbers, crowding and packing firmly. In the middle of the can
put; 12 whole cloves, 20 whole allspices, 3 bay leaves, 2 tablespoonfuls
salt. Fill the can with cucumbers,
Crowding and presing them In closely.
Cover with bolting vinegar, and sea,.
It takes about two cupruls of vinegar
to -111 a two-quart can of pickles, If

POULTRY   NOTES
(By "Winter Egg.")
Have you got your pullets in their
winter quarters? If not, it's time
they were . We are most likely to
have varying changes of weather all
the time now, and getling to be rather
cold at nights. So now is the time to
get the intended winter producers into their winter coops. Get them used
used to their new surroundings and
new conditions, allowing them to
settle down properdly before the wea-
Ireh becomes real cold. Failing this,
you are most likely to get inferior results from them. It has been often
noted that many of the best producers
start in to lay in October some time,
and these usually show about the
greatest profit per bird per year. Handling the youngsters—by that is meant
the managehent of pullets—is a very
great faster in determining their production. Never scare them if it can
be avoided. To scare birds and have
them all "up in the air," so to speak,
Is downwright bad management, and
does a tremendous amount of harm.
When entering your coop or moving
around or about your fowls, speak to
them. It imparts confidence, and very
soon they become so docile and tame
that they will continue to flock and
press around you as if fond of your
company, and to a master like that
they are indeed fond of him. Iu this
way production can be materially increased at no cost whatever. Use all
your wiles and cunning to cajole your
birds to give their best. Make friends
with your ckickens. Oh, yes, it can
be done and no other trick than kindness, it is also poor economy and bad
management to underfeed laying pullets. The days are rapidly becoming
shorter, and biddy has therefore less
time to gather her food. Feed her
good, and get good eggs, and plenty
of them, it is an acknowledged fact
that hens only lay eggs according to
their food consumption and he natural ability to turn that food InU ggs.
This clearly shows the reason why
poor layers will almost consume as
much food as good layers. They lack
the natural ability through lack of
good breeding. Eggs I am afraid will
be more scarce this winter than laBt,
and enhanced prices will prevail for
those that have them to sell. The
necessary grading of eggs, when purchased from the stores, Is a guarantee
of their quality. If you purchase ungraded eggs, at perhaps five cents less
per dozen, you cannot complain if you
get a few stale or rotten ones thrown
in, and in that case you made not only
a poor but dlstlncly unprofitable purchase. The act Insures the consumer
getting just what he paysfor; no more
and certainly no less. However, It
does not apply to the producer who
sells direct lo the consumer in the
usual way. However, I may have
more lo say about this later.
Dr. West man has returned from
Toronto and will occupy his pulpit at
the Mountain View Methodist Church
on Sunday next.
