now threatening the world, there is an
apparent unrest, brought on by the demand for labor and food, which will
terminate in changing the present
system of supply and demand. When
the large majority of men and women
fail in making both ends meet, the reaction will come and the civilized world
will find a means whereby the increased
output of gold will be used to balance
matters.

High Cost Of Living.
Widows Received  Money  Raised
By Local People.
One of the greatest problems of  the
age is the increasing cost of the necessaries of life, and the restrictions placed
on those who can least afford to  bear
the  burden.     In the early days, when
transportation lines were few and far
between, the payment  of  fifty dollars
for a sack uf flour was not  considered
exhorbitant, any more than it is today
in many parts of the Klondike and other
places in the far  north.     But  in  our
sparsely settled districts within   touch
of civilization, is   there any reason for
the high prices we are called to pay for
commodities?     The  graneries  of   the
world  arc  net  becoming smaller, and
the machinery in use could never have
been dreamed of by our forefathers ;
yet foodstuffs and necessaries are rising
in value, beyond the purchasing power
of the ordinary working-man.     Only a
few   weeks   ago,   a  man   died   whose
fortune represented over $200,000,000.
This one  individual  was  the head  of
numerous concerns considered requisite
to supply the world's demand for commodities,   yet  his  demise did not materially affect the stock markets, any
more than the death of the poorest individual in the land.   Without any effort
on  his   part,   the   fortune   be   gained
through speculation increased thousands
of dollars daily, and will increase proportionately, to  his heirs ;   but  those
who are furnishing the capital found no
release  from   their   obligations   when
'' The Good Lord ''   removed   this one
individual from this sphere of his usefulness.     The   majority of  cities  and
towns    instead   of    conserving   public
utilities   are   handing    them   over   to
private    corporations,    consisting    of
shareholders who are non-residents, and
are taxing themselves for commodities
that were all their own.     Monopoly of
supply, by those with  money at   their
command, means a raise in prices for
food-stuffs  and  the  lessening  of   the
price paid the producers      With all of
our civilization, no remedy has yet been
found to bring down, instead of increasing, the cost of living.     If the raise in
prices meant for the betterment of fhe
people, as a whole, there would be  no
objection ;  but there is no doubt that
the striving poor are becoming poorer,
and the rich becoming richer, under the
laws    now    governing    our    Western
countries.     The cry of Socialism, with
/   equality in all things, will never obtain,
considering that we have no two things
alike   in   the   whole   world.      Equality
means,   if   anything,   that   ambition,
rivalry,   advancement,  in   all   lines  of
thought and action, must be throttled
in  man ;  but out of  the chaos that is
The Grimsby and County Times, of
May 2nd, contains the following article
under the caption "Help for Grimsby
Widows : Practical Sympathy from
British Columbia."
" We have received a letter from Mr.
Wilfrid V. Doughty, B.A., J.P., Managing Director of the British Columbian
Fisheries, Ltd., Vancouver, enclosing a
list of subscribers to the fund which
was opened spontaneously by the employees of that firm when the unfortunate drowning accident happened to
Percy Graham and Fred Newman. The
sum of five hundred and seventy dollars
was raised, and this amount has been
equally divided between the two widows,
who have each received £58 15s. Id.
The money was paid through the London
office of the firm, and handed to the
widows, on their behalf, by Mr. H.
Crabtree, of the North-Eastern Steam
Fishing Co.
"The result of this appeal," says
Mr. Wilfrid Doughty, "is particularly
gratifying, owing to the fact that during the winter months most of the plant
is closed down, and therefore, only a
limited number of men were at Aliford
Bay at the time the accident took place,
January 3rd. The public mind was
strongly stirred by the fact that whilst
these men had made this long journey
from England to the Queen Charlotte
Islands, probably some 14,000 miles,
without accident, and had been accustomed to fish in all sorts of stormy
weather, they should lose their lives in
a small boat within 500 yards of the
company's wharfs."
The list of subscribers to the fund is
also published.

Agricultural Lectures
At Lawn Hill.
Following is a summary of an address
given to the Lawn Hill Agricultural
Society recently, when Mr. Keffer, of
Arrow park, and Mr. Upton, of the
agricultural department, settled many
perplexing problems for the settlers:
Mr. Keffer said that soils were the
study of a lifetime, and then some.
After you have studied it for a lifetime
you are just beginning to learn something. He defined soil as a compound
of vegetable and mineral matter.
Mineral alone would be of no use with
itself. It is necessary to have humis
In order to let the bacteria act we must
have vegetable matter turned into the
humis. Partly decayed vegetable matter is not good. He instanced, here,
the partly decayed wood so prevalent
on Graham Island. There may be fertility in the soil, but yet not available
for plant food. It is our object to
make it fertile. In order to do this we
must have moisture, air, heat and light.
If we have too much moisture we get
no air; we must have drainage. The
soil should be packed or kept firm to
conserve the moisture. If you have it
too lumpy, when plowed or dug below
the surface there are air spaces and
moisture evaporates quickly.
After this excellent address on drainage, questions were invited, amongst
which were:
Q. — Do you consider that by draining
you really get a better class of moisture
and more prolonged than if not drained.
A.—Certainly.
Q.—Do you consider muskeg land
will be good.
He was decidedly of opinion that it
would be, the only question was would
it be too expensive to drain. He had
in his mind the long distances from an
outlet up north. That question favorably answered; there was no doubt in
his mind but that the muskeg land was
good.
Q.—Is it advisable to dig in the rotten wood or any half decayed, or would
it be, in the case of the -soft resinous
wood prevalent here, a detriment?
A.—It would not be advisable to dig
or plow it in, and it would be a detriment.
weight birds. If summer eggs are required breed before April 15th; June
hatched birds are not profitable, they
do not thrive so well. Don't buy commercial food with grit in it. Grit is
heavy and can be got cheape*- than paying same price as food. Being heavy,
naturaly, you get plenty of it in your
commercial poultry food. Use kerosene
and crude oil for Bpraying poultry
houses. Select hens with red^ eye, except in black breeds. Broad head well
set denotes good constitution.
