Paper Cup Handy
on Active Service
Wc observe in a London contemporary that the men at the (rout ure
sometimes hard put to it Ior something to drink out of. Buys the Victoria. Colonist. We give u description
I of how to make a paper cup, and
suggest, that readers who havc friends
at the float should cut it out. an.l
send it to thorn.
Take a piece of paper and fold it
diagonn'.ly, that is, ou a line from
one corner to the opposite corner.
This will give a triangle of two
thicknesses of the paper. Place the
triangle on u tahle before you with
thc told towards you. Place the
right hand corner of the triangle on
lhe left hiwid side of the triangle, in
such a position that the top of the
piece folded over will he. parallel
to the hase of thc triangle, 1'ress
down the fold thus made. Place the
left hand corner of the triangle on
the right, hand side, so that the top
of the piece folded over will he parallel to tho base of the triangle. Now
turn over the top piece of paper in
the apex  of      what  was the triangle,
'place it inside the pocket formed by
the turned-over part of the left-hand
(■orner of the triangle.  PubIi  it down
! in this pocket     as far as it will go.
INow press,all the foi.is firmly     and
I you have a cup that will he very useful.
Almost any sort of a piece of paper
will do. Standing on the window sill
of the room in which this article is
written is a cup made in this ^,iy out
of si)  common      paper    that came
wrapped around a parcel from a hook
store, It was half Ailed with water
more than two hours ago and con
tains all of it yet, except what has
seeped through the. paper. After making a few of these cups, vnu can niake
one without having to rest thc paper
rn a tahle.

Fruit Growers in Interior Wil
Be More Economical and
Secure Better Markets
R. M. Winslow, provincial horticulturist, and , J. Forsyth Smith,
markets commissioner, of the Department of ugriculture, have returned
after having made un extensive tour
of the fruit growing districts of the
Kootenay, Arrow Lakes aud Bound-
iiry. At mumy points in these sections of the province tbey attended
meetings und addressed the farmers
t;n the economical rfide of the fruit
industry. The principal subjects dealt
with wore the means whereliy the cost
of production and distribution might
bc decreased while at the same time
the yield from the orchards might be
•nadi< Larger, lu view of the difficulties
-.experienced by B. C, fruit growers
last year in finding su.table markets
for their produce, a special point was
made in giving Information relative
to the way in which the competitive
conditions might be met most advantageously In order that a more profitable und better developed market
might be created in the prairie produces, which huve in the past pro
vided the chief outlet for B.C. fruit.
Unusual int?rest wus manifested by
those who attended the meetings, und
particularly '.targe attendances were
recorded at most of the lectures.
At many points in the Kootenay
district a great deal of acreage Is
being used for strawberries und other varieties of. Binall fruits. The results aa far as production are concerned have been very satisfactory,
and special instructions were giveu
the farmers in this region iu order
that the crops might be marketed
with profit.
The prairie wheat growers expect
io have a much larger crop than in former years, and will, consequently, be
better able to import fruit from British Columbia, While the wur and the
consequent depression in all financial
matters makes it difficult to give any
certainty, the growers are beginning
to sec certain encouraging indications
for this year.
British Columbia had a wonderful
apple crop best year, as did the whole
of this continent and the production
is expected to lie just as good, al-
•though the harvest for all North
\inerica is not likely to he duplicated this year. The competitors In the
Cnited States ore making strenuous
efforts to perfect their selling organizations and to do away with internal
•competition. In this way, the markets
■of this province will not be stocked
up with American fruit as was the
' ase last year.
While in the Interior, Mr. Winslow

Poultrymen Should
Grow Own Feed
Owing to the extraordinary conditions which now conlront the poultry
industry of the provinco, caused by
the high price of necessary commodities and the low prices obtainable for
•ggs. W.B. Scott,  deputy minister of
agriculture, advocates that all poultrymen Bhould endeavor to grow
their own feed as far as possible.
Tho prices for wheat are now practically twice whut tbey huve been in
previous years, und the only way to
meet this rise uppears to lie in putting all available land under cultivation for a crop of wheat, outs or any
other feed. Wheat, being the highest
iu price, is in greuter demand and
should therefore occupy the more immediate attention of the farmer.
An acre's production of wheats could
in most cases, be obtained with the
expense." 0[ very little time or money,
und it would bo sufficient to sustain a
fulrly large llock of birds throughout
the year.
It was stated by the deputy minister thut the existing conditions were
only temporary nnd that the poultry-
men were affected just us were men in
other lines of business. If breeders
continued to operate tbeir farms, they
would undoubtedly be repaid by tlie
better times that would follow.

for excursions to the, fields and woodlands to sec the birds in their haunts

their usefulness. In this way children
will get more intimately acquainted
with the different species, will become more 'interested in them, and
constitute themselves protectors of

I Wonder if you realize in England
that Russia has really become a teetotal country.
Try to imagine all the public-bouses ,n London and in all the towns
and villages throughout the British
ii-'.es closed; all the shopa which now
sell wines and spirits tilling their
windows with Perrier and Grape-juice
and non alcoholic champagne; all the
restaurants putting away their wine-
cards and offering with lunch, dinner,
supper, nothing strooger thun cider
or ginger-ale.
That is the state ol things in Russia. Strange it seems indeed, yet
thcre is one thing stranger. Nobody
makes any audible complaint.
Here there are no meetings, no letters to the newspapers, no controversy. Breweries are idle, beer-shops
stand shuttered and cheerless. Wine
shops, if they keep open, keep open
at heavy loss. In the famous and
fashionable restaurants, the J3ear, the
Cafe de Puris (managed by a former
'chef to the Czar), the Astoria,
guests drink non-alcoholic 'kvass' at
a shilling a jug. and profits dwindle
to vanishing po'int. Yet there is no
agitation. Those who grumble,
grumble behind closed doors.
| Partly this is because Russians accept anything that may be ordered as
a decree against which struggle Is
Birds Valuable to
Farmers and Fruitgrowers
With thc increasing knowledge of
the value of wild birds bas come a
demand for a larger, measure of protection for them in their passage to
and from Canada in their annual migrations, as well as during, their. sojourn here. Numerous organizations
nre at work to this end, and some of
oar brightest minds are devoting
their time and energies on behalf of
the birds.
Farmers and fruit growers, almost
as a unit, have come to recognize
the value of Birds as enemies of destructive insects. Careful investigations have shown that by far the
greater number of our birds sulisist
on a diet of insects, and only on rare
cccasions  do they attack  fruit.
Still further education is required
among the young, however, for the
protection of birds and their nests.
The Boy Scouts have been doing valued work  in this direction. The     citv
There are two insects appearing in
thc gardens which can be Jicst treated early to prevent injury to garden
plants later on, says R.C Treherne,
the government  entomologist.
The first is the insect popularly
called the "spittle bug," because it
produces an objectionable saliva like
excretion on tbe plants in thc axils
of the buds. The. insects today are
just hatched and beginning to lorm
their saliva. Tbis froth is the - juice
of the plant expelled Continually
through the mouth parts. They can
be controlled satisfactorily by a
dilute spray of black leaf 40, about a
talAe-spoonfui to the bucket to which
may bc dissolved a few ounces of
soap or whale oil soap. Pressure is
required to make a satisfactory job
applied sby a pump. There has heen
shown c-.nsiderable trouble to control
the spittle bug whai the saliva-like

The War Illustrated."
What are the chief changes that are
necessitated by the great struggle   in
which  we aro involved?
The ussential change, the change
that involves all the others, is the
abandonment of that spectacular attitude into which our long age of immunity lias lured us. The Englishman
will cease to be a looker-on, not only
at, cricket matches anil football matches, but at military reviews, nt the
political 'arena,' at the life of art
and literature, at the pageant of
royalty, That Idea ol modest and
respectable detachment and irresponsibility must vanish from our lives.
So, too, will the feeling that government is something to be resisted,
avoided, and neglected; that some
clever fellow round the corner can be
trusted to keep research going and
everything straight, and that It is
rather wise and kind to under-educato
our children and bc amiably fatuous
in speech and thought. Such sections
of the population as may still cling
to these will ultimately be dragged
in by the effects of taxes, reiiuisi-
t'ions, and the approach of conscription. The average Englishman of 1913
was conspicuously out of the great
name of human life; he was in the
empire but not of the empire, pis
ideal was to drum along in that state
of life to which it has pleased God to
call him, to he 'left alone' by the
government and to escape public service and taxation; the average Englishman of 1916 will be consciously in
the process of humanity, he will be a
conscious part of tbe empire, he will
I be as much in the game as a half-
j back at football and as keen that the
' goalkeeper and forwards should play
their keenest and best.
The New Englishman alter the war
will wan* to go on 'doing things.' He
Will, to tht number of two million or
more, have recently put ofl khaki and
come back to a civil lite that will be
calling imperatively for able organ-
Ization, or he will still be in khaki
while the economic life of the country
reorganizes. If he has .not actually
l.ei'ii a soldier he will have been work-
Ing under emergency conditions b'e-
cause of the war; he will be none the
less disloratel. All the old pre-war
time habits will havc gone. He will,
as chemists say, be 'nascent,' unsubmissive, critic:il. H? will Want) it to

disposition, and it is not too much to
hope that the Brit'ish court will presently be playing its part vigorously
in the general, renascence. Presumptuous Teutonic royalty with eemi-
divine claims and preposterous etiquette is inconceivable in thc England ot the coming days, but an energetic, able, apologetic English king
is probably the very best conceivable
head of our great empire, under existing conditions.
But where the movement towards
reality and,participation is most Dike-
ly to be evident is in our educational
life. This war has already been a
liberal education for the whole empire, lt has indeed gone further than
that, for it has aroused America to
the Importance of international polities. Hut it has also brought out into
a glaring light the defects and deficiencies of British technical and
higher education. No doubt this war
las been altogether glorious for the
British fighting man as a lighting
man. It has brought to light our
tremendous resources of cheerful
pluck and unassuming devotion. All
the more is it necessary to point to
the many evidences of dulness/clumsiness, and want of imaginative foresight in the conduct of the war. The
tecord of the war office, in relation to
recruiting and to the general helpful willingness of the country, has
been one almost of unmitigated
The showing of the influential and
intellectual classes in Britain has, in
fact, been as poor as the response of
the common people has been admirable, i The elementary schools uave
produced pluck, cheerfulness, willing
patriotism in unlimited abundance;
they have swamped the recruiting offices and all our resources of weapons
and equipment; the public schools,
though they have been patriotic
enough, have

HON. MARTIN RVRRELL, Minhtcr of Agriculture.
Great Britain Needs Food
VEGETABLE growers can render a real service to the Empire by increasing the produc-
tion of vegetables, especially those that can readily be stored and transported. The war
in Europe has devastated thousands of vegetable-producing acres and made it difficult
for Britain to obtain her usual supplies. Vegetable growers are urged to select carefully
the best varieties of seed and plant in properly cultivated and fertilized soil. Work
hand in hand with the agricultural specialists of both the Canadian Department of
Agriculture and your Provincial Department.
  no   farm
crop the yield of which, perhaps,
can be increased so much as
potatoes. Potatoes have been
grown in a small plot at the rate
of over 700 bushels per acre at
the Central Experimental Farm,
Ottawa. So great is the difference in the yield of varieties
that while one gave this large
yield, another, under same conditions, gave but 154 bushels.
It will thus be seeu how important it is to plant a productive

farmers only. Residents of
towns and cities can help the
Empire by growing vegetables
on small plots or raising chickens
in their back yards. City Councils, Boards of Trade, and other
organizationscan help by arranging for the cultivation of vacant
lots, which will relieve the unemployment situation at the

[according to the dictionary] is—PROSPERITY.
Success in business is not an accident, it follows
certain well-defined rules. We enumerate three
that are essential.
[1] QUALITY—Your goods must be good,
must give satisfaction in use, be dependable, able to stand any fair test. Not
occasionally but all the time.
[2] VALUE—Your goods must be the best
obtainable for the money. Not the value
of circumstances, nor of competition, but
the most for your customer's moneyALL
the time.
[3) PUBLICITY — Quality and value are
something worth talking about. Don't
hide your light under a bushel nor cloak
your goods with the silence that spells
disaster. Forget to talk and the public
will forget to buy. Talk simply and
steadily—talk ALL the time—and prosperity will follow by the rule of three.

Fernie Policeman Locked
Up by Russian Mob
An afiray.  occurred at Fernie       on
Sunday  afternoon  in whut  is    known
as the "Hill"'section,     or   Russian
quarter and bruised heads, and slight
facial disfigurements resulted. A Rub-
j sinn reported  to thc police  that     he
! had heen  attacked by one  of  his fel-
| lowi-countrymen     named Btarrmonid,
I with a knife.  He received five   minor
I cuts. Two provincial constables went
; to the 'locality    to arrest the alleged
offender. On arriving'at his residence
he objected  to heing     taken to jail.
HiB father     also     took    part in the
argument and the two became so de-
I monstrative   that the  ollicers   decided
to take them both along and started
for the city. On reaching the outside
' ol  tho  dwelling  the captives  sounded
a distress call und tin) ollicers   lound
themselves   in  the midst of  an  angry
mob  which  forcibly  released  the prisoners, and in no gentle manner bust
led thc policemen into a bu'.lding and
locked them in. They eventually     extricated  themselves having  to  break
through two locked doors to gain tbe
outside and there they were confronted  with a mob of 30 infuriated   Rus-
I sians,  armed   with coke fori s,    clubs
,and similar  weapons.  Although     unarmed,     the      officers    waded     right
through  the   racb and     effected their
escape  to  the city,   where  they     obtained reinforcements     and ; returned
and gathered  in tive of the offenders.
Later Chief  Welsby visited the quarter and unassisted brought     In   two
; more offenders. Those who  were taken into custody were:  M.   Strrmonid,
M. Starrmonid, father and son; Tony
Norik,   J.   Dasunsik,  A.  Funski,      S.
Jaropictk and  Mike Mizincik.

i ipated In the disturbance arc dealt
