THE PRAIRIE HARVEST
Alberta wheat crop has been a
bumper one this year. Its value is
estimated by the Alberta department
of agriculture as worth today nearly
>J ,000,000 or five million nie.re than
last year. That, will stimulate spending by British Columbia's next door
neighbors and promote Imports from
tiiis province.
The wheat crop of the three prairie
provinces is estimated by the Winnipeg Free Press, whose forecasts have
been unusually accurate in previous
years, as i'22,184,07l bushels or 36,-
2-25,53 • bushels higher than any previous crop reaped in the west. This
newspaper's estimate of all grains in
the three prairie provinces is 586,265',-
954 bushels, a bumper harvest surely.
The money returns from the wheat
crop are placed at about $135,000',OD0',
while the oats and barley crop will
add much additional wealth. Some
of this must come to British Columbia. The needs of the prairie farmer
in lumber, in fruit, in produce, in
manufactured articles will be met
this year where last fall there was
closer (economy. British Columbia
will contribute its share and will receive its meed of profit.
CANADA'S GOOD WAR-YEAR
That Canada's foreign trade suffered much less from the war, relatively, than did Australia's is shown by
statistics forwarded hy the Canadian
trade commissioner at Melbourne.
Canada's fiscal year ends on Marcb
Ml, while Australia's ends June 30,
nnd for the last year therefore in-
cluded threi a mths more of war period than Canada's. But as our foreign trade in April, May and June

To Mr. Davis—He had no suspicion
of anyone connected with the com-
pany having been implicated In the

T.e Mr. Taylor—He thought that a

Russell Evans, of Comaplix, said
that he returned from Calgary about
three' weeks ago. He had owned the
Lardeau hotel. It was leased to
fewltt. Witness was not present at
tlu' flre. Jewitt took the hotel on
Sept. 17. 1914. Jewitt did not own
the building or furniture. The lease
had three years to run.
To Mr. Davis—Jewitt had tried ""to
dispose of his lease. He had also
ssl • I to have the rent reduced. Witness had consented to a reduction
from $150 to $100 a month.
To Mr. McCarter—He had refused
t.. cancel  Jewitt's lease.
F. Vi. Gallagher, 54th battalion,
formerly constable at Arrowhead,
said that he had been unable to form
any opinion as to who had set the
3re.
Mrs.     M.    A. Jewitt was at Coma-
■ the time of the October lire.
Her husband was proprietor of the
Lardeau hotel. He was in bed when
the :.re broke out. Mr. Jewitt was
also in bed. When the fire started
l.er husband went down to the fire.
Hi did not return until after the
Lardeau hotel caught fire. No one
but herself and children were in the
house, The hotel caught fire on the
roof, It would huve been impossible
for anyone to set fire to the hotel
without ber knowledge.
T e Mr. Davis her husband was   now

Mrs. Hall     was living in Comaplix

cause of the fires was a mystery     to
her.

down on the steamer Revelstoke early

Mr. McCarter make a remark regarding the steamer and denied a remark
attributed to him regarding the Forest Mills officials.

when they begin to moult, but when
the egg yield drops rapidly until it
practically ceases without any apparent reason, suspect vermin.
Of all the many varieties of vermin
that infest fowl the red mite is the"
most troublesome. Unlike the ordinary hen louse they are not as a rule
found on the fowl, neither are they
killed by dusting, as the ordinary
body louse is. These pests breed very
rapidly especially during the hot
weather, usually in cracks containing
filth or in dirty nesting material.
Tbey are not red in color as is popularly supposed, but gray; it is only
after they have come into contact
with the fowl and have become filled
with blood tbat they apjiear red. The
young mites nre white and have only
six legs Imt after casting their skins,
which they do several times, they
have eight legs. The cast skin-- may
be seen like a white powder around
the jierches, this often being the first
Indication of thc presence of mites.
They arc able to live and reproduce
for months without animal food, the
lirst feiod of the young probably being tilth eir decayed wood. They thrive
best in dark, dirty houses, and have
been found to exist in houses the following season after the fowl bad
been removed. They usually attack
the birds at night but are sometimes
found on laying hens and they frequently drive broody hens from tho
nest. They jiierce the skin with their
needle—like' jaws and suck the blood,
after which they retire to the seclusion of the cracks and crevices of the
roosts, nests or other parts of the
house. They will bite man or other
mammals causing severe irritation,
but they never remain on them for
nny length of time.
Tf the fowl nre not deling well and

should be, a sharp lookout Should be
kept for mites. At night they may
