Several pictures of the wood-buffalo
were obtained. The Indian Chief, Pier

Victoria, B.C., August, 5—"Forestry
in British Columbiu has developed into n science und in the not fnr dis'-
tanl future I look to it to develop
into Botnet'hing approaching an exact
science." So snys Mr. Clyde Leavjtt,
Chief firo inspector, of the Dominion
Railwuy Commission., and forester of
the Commission of Conservation, wh0
wns a recent visitor to Victoria, making a tour of the fortBtry stations for
the purpose of drawing up a report
upon the prevailing conditions.
Mr. Leuvitt, ii may 'be remembered,
was here some time ago in connection
with the establishment of the new regulations   governing   rights-of-way  and
other clearances,  nnd at the     present
time he is     making a study of     how
things  are  working  out,   He now ox-
presses    the opinion   ihat.  in      Dritish
Columbia things were rapidly advancing toward a     condiiion    of    things,
which compared  to former conditions,
is mei i,iily enviable but remarkable.
I    "01    course     wo have not hud any
really    bad fire     went hor yet, but In
>pite   of thut  I think   the   records     to
the  forestry  branch  of  tho  provincial
government   go far  to  indicate     that
things are  taking a distinct nnd per- ,
manent  turn for the-  better.   Out here'
you have a splendidly equipped depart
mint,     with    olllcers whose qualilica- .
lions     will stan I   test in    ihe highest \
compnny, and under a minister   whose)
enthusiasm Ioi* lhe cause i- unbounded
ren.l who-e knowledge mid experience |
is the  1 ackbone   o:      Che department.
In addition lo lhat yoi have -, great
stnli of rangers, patrol men, B<attei*'<il
allocrthe  pro*>ln:e.    In   deed   I know
o.' no l Ince  thai  is more alive to     a
sen V o! its    responsibility In   this regard  than  the province of  B.C.,    and
a forester myself 1 Fay may that condition long remain. i
"Tba liiisin.'.s of Bre prevention     In
this  province is, I ihink  immeasurably
stimulated by the fue-t of the co-oper-1
ative arrangement now in existence be
tween ih.' railway commission ;,nd tho
forestry branch of  the provincial government.   By  virtue  of  thnt   arrange - '
ment   the officials' of the forestry staff
are members of thc board of commis -
sioners and in that way the Interest in
the work is stimulated as well as faoil
il tated.   in tho same way the Conrorvg,
tion     Commission of  the     Dominion,
wtiich    was  created  some four    years
auo, has an arrangement with the pro- :
vince   whereby  the worl:   can be  ioor-|
ilinated. an.l in that  connection 1 may j
state that   Dr.  H.N".   Wll i i ford,   .,  mem- I
her   of     the     commission is due hero '
shortly for the purpose of making   an ,
exhaustive  study  of  the  forestry  con- j
ditions in this province to be Used   in
the compiling of a reporl upon lhc tlm ,
ber resources not only of the province '
but of  ihe entire Dominion,   lu    that!
w.erk, which will of course be arduous,
Dr. Whit-ford will have the assistance
of all   the   provincial   government  offi-j
cers engaged in    thf* forestry   department.     The data,  when secured     and :
compiled, will be available for the pro •
vince as well as the Dominion govern- I
ment, and will ot course be of immense
value in estimating and regulating the
limber  cuts.
"For  the  last,  two  yars the prov-
government  has  been alive    to

Tlie proposed introduction of parcel
post service' in Canada calls to mind a
peculiar incident that took place in
England some timo ago, and whicli
would occur oltener if tho English
people were informed concerning ona
of the parcel post regulations in that
country.
A man vvis'hed to reach a customer
living in a remote part of Balham. one
of thu suburbs of London, and it was
urgent that ho tind him quickly.
Knowing nothing of tlie locality, he
called at St. Martin le Grand to consult a directory. Stating his case to
a clerk, lie was amazed to learnihat
he could he sent to the address by
"parcel post'"' paying a fee of threo
pen™  a  mile.
Ho li.id nover hoard of such a thing,
and it is1 said fow in England know it
can bc done.
Accepting the oiler, tha man was
placud in charge of a mo.-sengei* fami,-
iar with all parts of the oity and Was
soon on his way. The boy carried n
printed slip on whioh was written a
description of the ' parcell" in charge
under the heading "Article required to
lie delivered,''and befoi-e leaving the
leustomea'd house, both tho customer
anl the "parcel'' were required to
: place  their signature  on the paper.
The limit in weigh! for anything delivered Iiy parcel post .in England, as
in this country, is generally understood to be 11 pounds, but there ia
onu clause which reads: "A person
may he conducted l>y express messen-
! get* to any address on payment of mile
age fee,"

News in Brief
Mr. Davies, of  Vancouver, a    member of the  firm  of contractors  whose
tender for the new C.P.R. starion    in
Salmon   Arm    was  accepted,   accom -
panled by bis foreman,     Frank   Col- j
man,  arrived  in that  city      recently.
They immediately got busy,   and   the
lirst  sod was     broken by  Sir Riobard j
Davey.   Every arrangement has    been
made by  lhc contractor to ensure the1
! carrying through of the work in the
least possible time.
"The situation in British Oolumbia
is not a bit worse than in any other
part of the continent,'' declared Mr.
Campbell Sweeny, superintendent of
branches of the' Bank of Montreal,
when in Montreal last week, en route
to St. Andrcw's-by-lhe-Sca." Busine*
is sound and the development of the
province is proceeding apace. I should
nol Bay thai there are few of the Can- '
adian provinces in a more healthy con
tlition than  British  Columbia."
Mr. W.J. Allen of Sydney, fruit ex-I
pert and manager of the irrigation de- ■
partment in New South Wales, is in
this1 country to inquire into any ad-
vanee'd ideas in irrigation, packing
and shipping of fruit in Canada and
the United States, which may be useful in his country, He states that
rapid strides had been made in both
lines in New South Wales' in recent
years, although they recoejiiized that
perfection had not yet been reached.

of its closing. The' script wae quoted

expects tei gel there during the year .
The four million is to l>e expended

terminals in the erection of buildings
and laying out of yards.

Ottawa, Aug. 10—There is good reason for believing at the present time
that a measure of the redistribution
will not be introduced in parliament
this year, says the Evening Journal
today. The chief reason for this is
that the whole basis and system of
the parliamentary representation may
be chinged as a result of the conference of the provincial premiers, which
will be held in Ottawa some time in
September.
The Journal also stutes that it ha^
been practically decided that parliament will meet in November and not
in January, as has been urged on tho
government more particularly by
western and maritime province members, The closure rules aro not likely
to go a very long way toward shortening the session,  says tho. Journal.
"Closure is designed merely to obstruct obstruction and not intended to
stop full and fair discussion of any
important measure, by the representatives of the people, and it is tjuite
possible that it may not be adopted
in a single instance this coming session. All of this points to tho fact
that in order to get through in a reasonable time parliament will meet
earlier  than usual  this year."
DAIRY
CATTLE
FIGURES
Because  a  farmer  keeps a  herd      of
lairy cows it does not necessarily follow that each one in   the herd is es -
j pecially  adapted  for dairying.        The
type and general apperance may     bo
! gool, the temperament and disposition |
| may  promise fair  results,  but the re.il
I value of ea *h one is  to be measured ac- |
tually and practically by just her in- j
dividual  yield,  not the  average of the
hi rd as a  whole,   at  thc end of  a   full
season's work.
Over and over again when dairy far-
mers ha'-.e cheeked    up the production
separately  of     each eow thero     have1
been found    wonderful  surprises     and
serious  disappointments!   Those *'go0d
lookers''   have   turned out   to be   poor!
.producers; thc  despised  cow  of  insig-
inificatit  appearance has often proved a j
splendid   money-maker when  hei*  moderate cos't  of   feed  has    been  deducted
I from the large total yield of milk and j
. fat.   Some cowl testing figures record- '.
ed by the dairy division Ottawa show i
great   contrasts.   For  instance,      two
cows' yielding the same weight of milk j
, may differ in production of fat by 175 (
pounds of f.it.   Two cows thesarae age j
1 may diller in profit by $25.   The aged
cow  may do far better than the   five j
! year old.   Two mature cows in     the !
same herd have bee'n  known to differ
in  production by eight thousand   lbs. j
1 of     milk.   One herd of    twelve cows, I
last year i_ravc  thirty-six  tons of milk
more than    nnolher   herd.     How are I
these  vital  points to be definitely as-
certain'd by  the practical    dairyman?!
Such  facts are  brought  to  light when |
I figures   are  used,   lt is   iush as  Bimple
I as ABC.   Keep records of individual ,
I production; lt  taken scarcely tea minutes per cow  per month,  and r.bund -
antly  pays every  dairyman.

Gurney-Oxford
The Aristocrat of the Kitchen
After a glimpse into the kitchens of thousands of well
managed homes throughout
Canada, the Gurney-Oxford
Range may truly be spoken of
as the "Aristocrat of the
Kitchen." It is the first range
to-day in Canada both in point
of appearance and cooking
efficiency.
A bright nickel trimming
that never tarnishes, a smooth
polished top that never requires
black lead, this range is to
woman just one beam of gratification.
But besides its handsome
appearance, the Gurney-Oxford
more than fulfils the purpose
every range is built for—successful cooking.   It  contains
a device called the Economizer
which not only actually saves
one ton of coal in every six
burned in the ordinary range,
but so regulates the heat in
the oven thatdeliciously dainty
cakes, golden brown biscuits,
and light flaky pastry are sure
results from every baking.
It is a range which elevates
woman from the constant toil
and labor in the kitchen to a
higher level of life. Ite Economizer allows her to go visiting
or shopping and keeps a low
fire ready for her return, when
by simply turning the lever a
hot fire is quickly produced.
Employ the Gurney-Oxford
in your household.
