Annual Meeting Opened in
New Orleans Yesterday.
New Orleans, La., Jan, 29.���The annual nationaj habo convention waa
opened" here today and the flrst session was devoted almost entirely to
speeches denunciatory of present day
conditions generally. The proceedings were brought to a sudden halt
and a rather noisy hall silenced this
afternoon'by the appearance of "Jesus
Wesley," who said he was a member
of the "brotherhood of Christ," and
that be'came from Heaven. He was
garbed In long flowing robes of white
and his hair dangled over hia shoulders. The delegates were vlsably upset but Invited Wesley to speak. Hla
nddress waa devoted, chiefly to an Invitation to join hla brotherhood.
President Jeff Davis iasued a "proclamation" today In which he aald tf

press representatives from the convention.

terday���Alderman H. Keef*
le Mayor.
Nelson, Jan, 29.���Nelson municipal
elections, delayed, through the death
ot Alderman P. J. Oleaser, took place
yesterday. Much Interest waa taken
in the elections owing to the fact that
the Ministerial Association made an
issue on moral reform and carried on
h vigorous campaign.
Alderman II. Keefe, who opposed
the Ministerial Association, waa elected mayor by a large majority, the
largest ever known In the city' of
Nelson. Mr. Rente's whole anti-mor**"
reform slate of aldermen were elected
by enormous majorities, polling prao-
tlcally double the votes of the Ministerial Association candidates.
The figures tot* mayor are: Mr.
Keefe, 652; Mr. J. A. Irving, 384; Mr.
Paul Nlppou, 33. Aldermen elected
are: West ward���Messrs. L. A. Austin, Jobn Bell, W. M. Cunltffe, O. Cun-
' lltte; East ward���Messrs. Jasfl John-
ftone, A, A. Perrler and Edward Kerr.
Edmonds, Jan. 29.���Much Interest is
being shown throughout tbe municipality as to the coming negotiations
between the council and tbe B. C. K. R.
which tend towards the settlement of
the franoblae tangle which has remained in a stagnant state since October, 1911. It was In that month
that tbe electorate of Burnaby took
a vote on the 1909 franchise which had
been passed by tbe council without
first receiving the sanction of tbe ratepayers and, although a majority voted
for the franchise being given to the
electric company, it did not receive
the necessary three-fifths majority.
Since that time the first courts
which have heard the case of the municipality versus tbe B.C.E.R. as to
quashing the 1909 ' franchise have
handed down a decision against Burnaby and before taking the matter to a
higher court there appears to be a
desire among the electorate, especially In the northern districts, to again
approach the company and ask what
terms they will offer If any. In lieu
of the municipality droplng ita ault

while the Foresters' Hall, East Burnaby has been engaged for Ward Three.

Association ln the city ball.
In former years Victoria was the

New Westminster as the recognized
metropolis of the agricultural and
stock raising industry of the mainland
of British Columbia persuaded the
executive that tbe Royal City was the
proper place for the convention this
year. A deciding factor ln tbo decision to meet here was doubtless the
now famous Asylum Colony Farm
with its celebrated thoroughbred
horses. Shire. Clydesdale and Hackney, and Its magnificent herd of pure
bred rlolsteius, which was visited during the d.iy and where the association
was entertained to luncheon by Dr.

Mad*  Welcome.
Before the subject of stockbreedlng
waa  touched upon  Mayor Oray  read
the following address of welcome:
Clia'rman and Gentlemen���
It ls a great pleasure to me to extend to you a most hearty welcome
to New Westminster, and I trust thai
your del beratlons will be of the most
beneficial nature and that your atay
tarlo, a distance of 2000 miles, for
registered stock. If lt were not for
the assistance of this association
through the government the cost of
getting In registered stock would be
prohibitive. A great many of them
were at a disadvantage in getting in
stock. They had to take the honesty
of breeders In Ontario for granted as
it was too expensive to go that distance for their animals.
In the early days Mr. Patterson did
not think they got a square deal from
some of the Rastern breeders.' At
tlie present time it has got so that the
West is looked to as the place where
they want the best and he believed
the stockbreeders of the province were
willing to pay the price to get the
arti.'le. He hoped and trusted that
their 1913 board of directors would see
to it, through their association that
the registered stock brought Into the
province would be orthodox. He did
not believe they could do better work
tor   their   province   than   Kettlna
with each other as to lhe best means
of encouraging and developing tbe
best stock for the farm tbat the ��uc-
cess of the country depended to a
much greater degree than to any
other industry in the country.
Therefore tbey would realize the
privilege he deemed lt of meeting the
live stock men, the cream of the different parts of Canada, continued Dr.
Rutherford. They were more advanced In thought, more progressive In
their methods of agriculture and they
were better business men as a rule
than the farmer, who was not a live
stock man. They, to a certain extent,
had adopted and appreciated the great
principle of co-operation. If farmers
could only get together and emulate
tbe live stock men as to co-operation
they would accomplish good work and
agriculture would take its proper
Intereat* the Boy*.
Again in the matter of live stocjc
It was of Interest to the boys. Take
a boy brought up on a farm where
there was good stock his intelligence
was exercised and developed. It was
entirely different on a purely grain
farm In the prairie provinces where
bis Whole attention was divided between wheat and machinery. One of
tbe most gratifying things in the live
stock business was that the sons of
good, Intelligent live stock men remained on the farm because tbey realized it was a good and interesting
business and took all the best tbat
was in him. He was Just now engaged

Washington, aJn. 29.���As the result of complaints against the recent
order given In Quebec, Canada, purporting to remove all restrictions of
export tax from the timber of certain
crown lands of that province, President Taft must decide whether wood
pulp and paper made from the tiiri-
ber affected will be entitled to free
entry Into the United States.
According to representations to this
government, Quebec's action amounts
to a discrimination against United
States holders of crown lands and to
grant the free entry privileges, lt Is
declared, simply would reveal the real
Intent of the wood pulp and paper
clause of the Canadian reciprocity
agreement The state and treasury
departments have investigated the situation and will make a Joint report to
the president.
The only operative clause of the
reciprocity act admits free of duty
all wood cut from lands where exportation is unrestricted and wood pulp
and paper made from such timber. Its
primary purpose, lt ls declared, was
to obtain from Canada the removal
of all restrictions upon the exportation of timber Into the United States
for manufacture into pulp and paper
Complainants to the government declare that the Canadian government
has removed the restrictions on the
timber land where the province bas received practical assurances that the
timber will not be exported, but only
the wood pulp and paper made from it
in Canada. It also ls alleged that the
province has refused to remove the
restrictions from other crown lands
in the same province controlled by
United States owners.
Until the question ls settled by the
president, Secretary MacVeagh has Js-
sued a temporary order for the collection of duty.

Or. Rutherford Speak*.
Dr. Rutherford expressed the pleasure it gave him to be present, even
in the capacity of a tiller-In. (Laughter.) He had attended live stock
meetings in a great many different
places especially in the Northwest of
Canada and lt had always been a
source of great pleasure to blm to
meet with stockmen of any particular
dlatrlct Tbe reason was not very far'
to s��*ek. Any thoughtful man realized that In this country, as to most If
not all, other countries, the basic factor In the welfare of the community
was agriculture.
Thoughtful men realized, continued
tbe doctor, no matter, what the politicians might say or think, aa they did
not always say what they thought any

kindness and assistance In offering
for competition prizes for different
breeds of stock.
I also wish to express our thanks
to your association with reference to
stock judging and for your special
prizes for different classes Of stock.
Your association Is to be commended lor this excellent work and assistance given, as it has done mucn towards the success ot onr provincial
exhlb t'on, and I believe that there la
no better war of Interesting the youtb
on the farm than by giving him a live
stock education, and I feel there is
no better place to prove tha anowl-

wonder at his appreciation of the live

were doing.
One word more. Were they doing
enough ? Dr. Rutherford bad listened
to intelligent men discussing trivialities or occupied in the little game of
politics in the election of executive
officers for the coming year. Could
they not do a little more, go to a
greater extent Into carrying out the
principle of co-operation among their

Co-operation is a word which has been in men's
mouths frequently of late and it is therefore of great interest to us in Westminster and particularly in the valley
to note some of the results that have been achieved by it.
These were evident in the speeches at the gathering of the
stock breeders yesterday, and we believe that the dairy
convention of today and tomorrow will tell the same story.
The stock of the province has been immeasurably improved by the banding together of men whose vocations
were similar, while the association has helped its individual members not only by affording means of interchange
���of views, but by financially assisting the importation of
the best stock obtainable���stock which to most breeders
(acting on their own would have been inaccessible. ,
Dr. Rutherford laid stress on the value of agriculture
to the state, and equal stress upon the value of stockbreed-
ing to agriculture. His assertions that each is the basic
factor of the other are well worthy the consideration of
all. This earnest student of everything appertaining to
agriculture is pointing the way for the alleviation of many
of the ills of the Fraser valley, even under present conditions, when he states that just as the stockbreeders come
together so should the farmers. .,���-.���    , ,    ,, ,    ,    ,���-,.���.

We In Canada have profited ln many
-ways by the economic history of the

rapid that prophlcies had become vivid realities before the country could

Complicated problems- one after another, were thrown up by life, and legislation could not possibly control

What Dairy
men Have
Done and Are Doing
Amongst those who were in attendance at the meeting, held last week
in Woodstock, Ontario, of the Western Dairymen's association was the
veteran cheese maker, Mr. J. A.
Crawford, of London. Mr. Crawford
is one who is Intensely interested In
the subject of dairying. There ls perhaps no man better acquainted wllb
the history of the cheese Industry tn
the county of Oxford than Mr. Crawford. He has an extensive fund of
Information In regard to the beginning of the Industry, and the price o!
cheese, and Its fluctuations during all
these years.
He stated that It waa In the early
seventies that cheese reached its very
highest price, but on the average, he
aald, the year 1912 saw the highest
prices yet attained for cheese. The
following are some facta ln regard to
the Industry and to the Dairymen's
associations, gathered from an Interview .with Mr. Crawford:
Oxford has the honor of being the
banner county of Canada In the dairy
. industry. It was lu Oxford county tbe
cheese factory system was first introduced, and lt was In Oxford thai
the cheeso Industry was first placed {
on a scientific basis.
Oxford Showed Way.
Oxford also had the honor of organizing the Dairymen's Association
and making a success of It.
It was thirty of Oxford's Influential
men, engaged ln the cheese Industry,
. who met In the town hall of Ingersoll, en the 9th of July, 1867, and discussed the advisability of forming the
Dairymen's Association and decided
to hold a meeting of every person interested in the cheese industry in
Canada, at the town hall of lngersol
for the purpose of organizing such
an association.
Tbe first regular meeting of the association was held on the 31st of
July, and tbe first day of August,
Oxford cheese was the first dices*
of Canada shipped to England, and
was shipped by Harvey Farrlngton In
In the early days of cheese-making
In Canada, there were a number of
large cheese made that were considered among the wonders of the age.
One notable cheese made by James
Harris & Co.. in 1866. weighed 7003
pounds, and was shown at Saratoga,
New York state farm, Toronto, Hamilton, Kingston and London. It was
afterwards sent'to England.

A Reminiscence of th* South African
I acquired the abominable habit
whilst serving as a private in the
South African war, says a writer in
London Ideas. The company in which
I was occupied a block-house, and
the awful monotony of the life drove
many ot the weaker soldiers to drink,
and even worse things.
When all the drink was gene, and
the bad food became unbearable several of my companions took to drugging themselves with the cordite from
the cartridges supplied to them, and
���iter a while I followed suit, first of
all from curiosity, but later because'
of my inability to conquer the depraved  taste  I acquired.
Cordite is composed of gun-cotton,
nitres-glycerine, and a small quantity
oi vaseline. The nitre-glycerine given
it a sweet and rather pleasant taste,
but a very small allowance produce!
s violent headache. The first mouthful I swallowed laid me up for several hours with a splitting head ami
a terrible pain in my back, and I
swore off cordite for some days.
Then the agony of having neither
drink nor tobacco to soothe my nerves
got the upper hand of my resolution,
snd I started to chew the explosive
again, taking s very small quantity
at first, and gradually increasing the
I still experienced violent headaches, but "alts-r a whil* th* cordite
had a similar effect to alcohol. AI
small quantity was av-tVcient to make I
me drunk, and the headache did not 1
trouble me until several hours slier-
words ss is the case alter a heavy
drinking  bout.
Then the cordite began to effect my
rest, and I experienced the most horrible dreams that nearly drove me
insane. I made a determined effort
to conquer my passion of the explosive as I was the only man who could
not do without it, but the long, weary
days alwaya got the upper hand of
my resolution, and usually long before
nightfall I had succumbed to tbo
temptation that lay in my cartridge
My dream* were alwaya about the
war in which we were engaged. I used
to see England detested by her enemies and the wholes*!* slaughter of
the British army. Sometimes I would
picture myself csptured by the Boers
and put to the most fiendish tortures,
snd would wake up trembling in every
limb, with the per*pir��sion runnin-r
off me in stresms.
On one occasion.I dreamt that tb*
block-house wss surtouatded by a vast
arnty ot Boon,, who captured it after
a terrible stru'.'ele, and brought out
(.he survivors to be burned ut the
stake. J saw myself, with savers'.

There wss som.-tliing fascinatingly

Nights. They dweit upon his raiment
and his procedure. He waa attired���

ribboned bows on his breeches and
silver buckles on bis shoes. An elaborate lace jabot���at least that wa-.
what the missus called it���adorned
his bosom, and in his white-gloved
hands he carried the magic Black
Rod from which he derived his name.
His visit to the Commons was heralded by the time-honored three
knocks. He made his entrance with
three magnificent bows, triumphs ef
mathematical calculation and Del-
sarte accomplishment; and his exit
with three more, all in sequence and
equally rjrfeet and precise. "Yes,"
put in the bearded Sandy, a canny
and characteristically material Scot,
as he borrowed a bit more tobacco,
"he makes six bows a year and gets
$.'1,500 for it, which, st $583 a bow.
isn't bad, is it?"
One day the old postmaster visited
tbe city to make his autumn purchase of merchandise. He was standing in the railway -office, discussing
freight rates, when he was accosted
by a commercial traveler who had
more than once visited the country
store and been permitted to join in
the nightly discussions. He led th?
veteran over to a large illustration
of camp life which adorned the wail.
It showed three men disembarkin,-
from a canoe. He pointed to one of
them, a rou^h-looking individual
with an uncouth slouch hat, a coarse
camping outfit, big heavy boots and
a browned, unsiiaved countenance.
"That," said he, "is the Gentleman
Usher of the Black Rod." The old
postmaster all but gasped at the sacrilege  of the  revelation.
But the traveler was right.   Captain
Ernest   John   Chambers,   Gentleman
Usher   of   the   B'.ack   Rod.   when  he
doffs  his  Habiliment  of   office,  is  litterateur,   ftoldier   aod   aportan-ai-,   and

Hc is a young Englishman, a native
of Staffordshire, who came to Canada
in his early youth and took up the
calling  of  journalism.    He  waa   for
two years the editor oi the first daily
newspaper in the then Northwest Territories.    And he bas been connected
with the militia since he was fifteen
years old.   He  was press eon-espon
dent during the Northwest cempaigi
of  1888.  and uprformed  military service voluntarily.    He wa* present at
the engagements  at Fish  Creek and
Batoche,   and   participated   in   the

It isn't those bows that a grateful

The commercial world is alive to tke possibilities of
scientific manufacturing. Great striates are being made
in the application of a set of principles so sincere and simple that their talue is not open to doubt. Scientific management is opening the way for greater efficiency and
greater economy in production.
The production ef an article, however, is but one of
the processes through which it must go, and the giant task
is today and always has been to find the best method of
distributing what is produced.
Distribution frequently costs more than production.
Dollars will go further in their purchasing power and
standards of living will be generally enhanced in just the
proportion that distribution is simplified and economized.
Students of economic conditions are convinced that
the American system of selling has been extremely wasteful and manufacturers in many lines are now earnestly
considering cot only what they may do to organize their
production on the most scientific basis, but also how they
may lessen the cost of selling and thereby make a greater
profit, or give the consumer the advantage of a better article for the same money or the same article for less
Intelligent advertising is a powerful aid in the solution of this vexatious problem.
It requires effort to sell goods and salesmen must be
paid for making this effort. A merchant buys goods to
sell them. He is interested in profit and retailing has
long since reached the point where quick sales with small
profits are more highly regarded than slow sales with
large profits. *   .
The merchant realizes that well-advertised goods are
partially sold and that his trade, although the profit per
sale may be slightly less, is certain to be more brisk on
goods of this character.
The salesman who can offer to his trade a line of merchandise which is widely known and for which there exists a favorable prejudice can sell his wares with less effort than if he were handling an unknown article.

effort.     And this condition does nssA -wos-k against the
salesman.     He can cover more te-rritor-f, get a better
heating and in the long ran main more money.
The scientific ideal endorses a straight line as the
shortest distance between two points.
If a railroad is to be constructed from one city to another the engineering ideal is an air Sue; but, of course,
grades must be leveled, streams crossed, other towns
taken into consideration, and a practical building of the
road means a departure from the ideaL
In merchandising we have a paraDef*-e��se���the man
who makes something and the man trio wants something.
The selling ideal is a straight route timm tmrn of these ami:
to the other.    But there are jobbers, retailers, competitors and market conditions to be eamrideied and in practical selling all these elements must be given due atten--
Advertising, however, provides a short route by which*
the man who makes something may tall about it to the
man who wants such an article, and if enough persons are
told and taught, they will mate their desires felt through
the retailer and the jobber. Thn *uaiurfacturer^thenjjets
his reward because he has hia mark on his foods and he-
alone can supply them.
His salesmen find'it less dHikutt to sell the goods and  .
through this process, wisely conceived and courageously
conducted, many a business is bringing about a much more
wholesome condition in its selling.

"In v:ew cf the great value of tha
arable land In this district and of the
comparative limited areas of good

of good stock and the reputation
gained in this manner has not tuffer-

In referring to the Colony farm

but this condition was now being overcome by the increased home
production. Three years from now
the western provinces would have a
surplus of pigs for export. As to the
class of pigs most suitable for raising, the speaker recommended thi.
long-Bided animal. True this class
cost considerable to feed, but when
they got fat they were sure money
makers. The long-sided pig was the
only grade suitable for the British
market and since li. C. did not have
the long railroad haul, but could ship
direct to Liverpool and London from
her own ports there was all the more
reason why she should produce thin

Dr.' Rutherford dwelt briefly on the
tniqilil'ea ot the beef packing concerns and demopstrttted how they In
creased and reduced the production ol
pork at will. He advised the stock
breeders of the province to form co
operative circles, and eliminate the
middle man. Thus they could have ;
steady flow of their products to thi
right market and secure proper prices
The doctor also saw no reason why
the breeders of the district shonli-
net    establish    their    own    packing

Washington, Jan. 29.���The-* local
Yale alumni association at Its annual
banquet tonight greeted and bade
farewell to President Taft. A long
cheer, with "Taft, Taft," at the end
welcomed the president to the banquet
hall and the strains of the "Boola
Song" and "Here's to Good Old Yale,
Drink Her Down," with other college
songs, rang out during the evening.
The president declared that when
next he met with tho Washington
Yale alumni \{ would be as "a member
of the faculty committee to tell of the
needs of the university." Whether
the faculty at Yale would treat him aB
a freshman, he said he did not know.
He spoke In a Jovial mood and of his
coming duties as Kent professor of
law at Yale, said he was doubtful as
to what he was to do, but that It
meant something to have been on the
bench long enough to have acquired
the reputation of knowfng all about
"But It Ib a different matter," hc
added, "when yiu have to be examln
ed every day ty a lot of bright young
students. Ir you can restrain their
curiosity sufficiently, the position may
be  fairly  satisfactory."
He then launched into an attack on
some of tho modern profmsors of political economy "whose heads are in the
clouds, and who have lost all sense
or proportion as to what is valuable
to present civilization and what we
mutt anchor to 1 wunt to help bring
the students of one university to realize what ll means to be an American
now and what benefits this country
with Its constitution gives us. I think
we are enjoying many brneflts without realizing how much of self-sacrifice lt took to bring them about."

The Detroit News likes to poke fun
at Tommy Burns. The following Ib
the latent contribution:
Every now and then there thunders
out of Calgary, Can., an announcement to the effect that Tommy Burns
Ib going to clean up the present heavyweight crop and reclaim the title.
The latest of these told ub that Tommy  was to get 130,000   for   messing j
Bombardier Wells.
All of this has made excellent reading, and has prevented the volatile
sporting public from forgetting Tommy in his ardent worship "of new and
strange idols. In other words, they
have nerved their purpose.
Tommy Is making so much money
that he Ilnds it necessary to bale hie
currency the same as the farmers do
hay. He bas two sources of income���
one a haberdashery emporium and the
other a fight establishment. He i.

The Toronto wiseacre says: "The
arrogant attitude assumed by the
Western Rugby Association is amusing, to Bay the least. Because the

snap buck sys^iu, the W. R. IT. say
ihat thev will i-ntore 'the self-appoint

cu their own look. All this U very

Mr. Good's statements are too petty
to bother answering with the exception of correcting the one in which he
claims rugby bas been played for only
two years In the west. He ts just
four years out ln his calculations, but
that ls close for a man who ls slow to

London, Jan. 29.���There has lust
been it-sued a 1000-page blue book
which Is the rcBult of the Census of
Production Act, of 1906, in England.
The delay In IU Issue Is pardonable,
considering the enormous bulk of the
statistics that had to be collated, the
fact tbat the machinery set up tor
their collection was new and the circumstance that several powerful trade
Interests were opposed to the innovation.
For the purposes of the enquiry the
trades ot the country have been classed ln the following groups:
Mines and quarries; iron, steel, engineering and shipbuilding: metal
trades, other than iron and steel; textile, colthtng, food, drink and tobacco;
chemical and allied trades; paper,
printing, stationery and allied trades;
leather, canvas and India rubber; timber, clay, stone and building; miscellaneous, and public utility services.
In summary form the results of the
census are shown as follows:
Gross output (selling value or value
of work done)���England and Wales,
$7,450,000; Scotland, $1,040,000,000;
Ireland. $215,000,000; United KIumIohi,
Work given out (amount paid to other firms)���England and Vales, $95,-
060,000; Scotland, $25,00',000; Ireland, $5,000,000; United Kingdom,

Osier says was only a banquet joke
"Thc attempt to show the fallacy
of the statement made by Dr. paler
was taken up by Dr. William A. N
Dorland, himself a physician and
author of some reputation.
"He selected the names ot four
hundred of the most noted men of all
times from sll lines of activities;
statesmen, painters, warriors, poets,
writers ol history, fiction, and other
prose productions. Opposite each
name was placed the name of the
greatest work of his lifetime; his
greatest picture, greatest battle, greatest poem or book; whatever the greatest thing he had done in his lifetime
might be.
"This.list was then submitted to a
considerable number of competent
critics for suggestions. The list wae
revised and re-revised. Names were
added, names were dropped; the list
was thoroughly gone over time and
again, until the majority opinion was
that the list as it stood represented
the lour hundred greatest men of the
world's history.
"When the list was completed to
the satisfaction of the critics, Dr. Dor-
land appended to the list of the
achievements of the men, the age at
which the deed was accomplished
The list was arranged according to decades of age, and the result was
"It was found that the decade ol
years between sixty and seventy contained t>3 per cent, ot the world's

sources and trade of the British Empire.
"One of the most important questions with wblch the commission has
to deal ls that of migration," said Mr.
Foster. "The question of migration
from tbe United Kingdom into the
different parts of the empire, and in
particular to the overseas dominions,
Is one worthy of no little attention.
Just the mention of the subject, and
to think what ls going on here, Is
sufficient to show what an important
question this is.
"For years and years a streak of
precious British blood was constantly
pouring out from the United Kingdom, and at first just a small part
ot lt was bound for other parts of the
empire. In latter years the streak
has directed itself more satisfactorily, and at the present time not more
than forty per cent of the British outflow Is lost to the British empire, but
that forty per cent is still lost to tbe
Empire, and that is just about forty
per cent too much.
"This ls something that must be
remedied by our statesmen and must
be attended to at once."
Tlie  commission  has also  to look
lut55*the natural resources of the over;
seas dominions, both as to the question of present conditions and what
they are capable of"doi*ig-ln the future.
"The commission will also have to
inquire Into the food requirements
and the natural resources for manufacturing.
"Britain imports $340,000,000 worth
of cotton each year from foreign coun
tries. Who knows but that in time
It may be possible to satisfy the cotton manufacturers from within the
Empire. Britain today imports $290,-
OOO.OUO worth of wheat and flour from
foreign countries. It is possible that
there is within the Empire sufficient
land to supply this demand.
"What ia it that is aimed at? It ls
to give the people of this Empire a
photograph of the Empire of which
they form a part."

Interesting Experiments Are New Be*
Ing Carried en In the West.
In Western Canada, where one ot
the greatest difficulties with which
settlers have to contend ts thc clearing oi the land ol trees before plowing and sowing can be begun, the use
of explosives, chiefly dynamite, has
been tried tor this purpose with considerable success. Ii waa only recent-
ly, however, at the annual plowing
match and live stock ahow ot the
Rochester and Oravesend Agricultures! Association, thst farmers in England had an opportunity of judging
the efficacy ol this agricultural inn v
vation. A series of demonstration with
explosives in clearing uncultivated
land was given, which included tha
breaking up of tree stumps, to show
how quickly the work oould be done
with powerful explosives.
The charges used for a stump seven
feet in diemeter consisted of a central one of 10 pounds and five ot one
pound each ot gelignite, fired by electricity. Tbe result was entirely successful, the great mass ot wood being
thrown clean out of the ground and
broken in a way that made remevat
easy. .
The use nl explosives tor p-eparin-t
the ground for tree planting was also
demonstrated. A bole' about three
(eel desp was made, and a charge ol
eight ounces ot cheddite inserted, Ignition being effected by en ordinary
fuse. The explosion loosened th-*
strong soil lying on chalk to a depth
ot 3 feet 6 inches, and to about the
same extent in diameter. It Is claim*
ed tor the system that, besides saving
labor and expediting tike work, it provides a better rooting area for young
tress. It has been proved that t'uit
trees planted in this v.-ey have taken
root more quickly and made mure
rapid growth than those planted in
the usual manner. The cost ot the
operation   ii  from  9 to IS  centa a
and two visitors who had called summoned assistance from neighbors.
When the witness arrived he found
Baget breathing very hard, and apparently unconscious. A dog was lying
on him. The animal began to whine
and bark, and would not let the witness approach. The witness went out
to call a doctor, and then went back
to see if he could get the dog away
and give assistance to Sestet. He
was, however, unable to dislodge the
animal until the doctor arrived. It
was stated that Saget died while ber
ing medically examined." -Heart fail,

School Trustees Meet Tonight���Want
Bylaw Put Up.
The board of school trustees will
meet this evening to pass finally on
the 1913 estimates which have been
prepared by the various committees.
It Is expected that the board will
require less money this year than in
1912, owing to the fact that the cost
of construction of all the new schools,
including the Duke of Connaught high
school was arranged for last year.
It IB not Improbable that the trustees will request that a money bylaw
covering 'the cost of construction of
a school similar to the Lord Lister
which It is proposed to erect in the
West End, be placed before the ratepayers.
