SUGGESTIONS      Many Travel on "John"
As to the Growing of Good Vegetables
By Austin Richardson, Lawn Hill.
There are a few things to consider
before sowing the seed. Amongst these
are the tilling of the soil. It is very
important to dig your ground over in
the fall in order to get the benefits from
exposure to rain, snow, frost and any
other of nature's army of fertilising
agencies. You cannot dig your ground
too often, supposing, of course, it is fit
to do so. For instance you would not dig
in snow or when it was exceedingly wet.
If the ground is not at all inclined to be
squashy, then dig if you have the opportunity, and always dig deep. Another
essential point is plan so that you do
not grow the same thing on the same
ground year after year, especially with
potatoes.
Potatoes.
The first thing to do in growing
potatoes is to choose good seed. The
seed end of the potatoe should be broad
and uniform in shape and with few eyes;
these eyes being shallow. Some time
before you want to plant place them in
shallow boxes, with the seed end up,
and keep them in a place with plenty of
light. The place at first should be cool
because you should aim at getting the
skin green and hard before the sprouts
start; generally the lower sprouts do
not come, and in this way all the energy
of the potatoe is concentrated in the
few sprouts at the seed end. It has
been proved over and over again in
England, Scotland and Ireland, that the
crop is mucfy better and greater from
seed sprouted in this way and it is done
very extensively in those countries. It
is estimated that the yield is from two
to three tons per acre more, than by
using seed haphazard from the potatoe
pile. You also get earlier potatoes.
Should you want very early potatoes,
about ten or fourteen days before planting, partly cover the seed with loose,
moist soil; cut the seed to two eyes and
by putting the soil over them they start
to make root, and you can calculate to
have new potatoes from an early kind
in from seven to nine weeks. Last
year I had them in eight weeks from
the State of Maine potatoe, which is
not an early kind. You will have much
fewer small potatoes by cutting the
seed a fair size, but not more than three
eyes to each piece; if you have too many
eyes the number of shoots startingjfrom
any one growing plant become crowded
and are more than the land is capable
of supporting Another reason to cut
them is because it helps the sett or seed
to rot, and we have noticed when a
potatoe has not been cut and not rotted
that there are nothing but a lot of very
small potatoes at the root. Another
thing that the  Old Country growers
The new summer service of the G. T.
P. steamers from Vancouver and way
ports to the Queen Charlotte Islands
commenced last week. The Prince John
(Capt. Wearmouth), made the first trip
on the new service and arrived in the
Inlet on time last Tuesday morning.
Every berth was taken up, in fact sleeping accommodation was at a premium.
Even although extra "sleepers" were
installed on the " John " before she left
Victoria, this was not sufficient to accommodate the large number of passengers, and temporary berths were made
up in the dining saloon. Most of the
travellers were for points in Skidegate
Inlet. The passengers enjoyed the trip
up, good weather being encountered all
the way, while their creature comforts
were ably looked after by ehief steward
Sam Jackson. That the new service
will become popular there is not the
least doubt. The Islands will be brought
more prominently into the public eye,
and many will come here who had not
the opportunity of doing so before,
owing to the poor service in the past.
Many will also come with a view to
locating and investing. A good tourist
trade should be done during the summer
months as travellers will have the opportunity of coming to the Islands direct,
thence to Prince Rupert, and back to
Vancouver and Victoria on the larger
boats, or vice verjsa. Mr. Alex. Cotter,
ticket auditor, of the G. T. P. Coast
Steamships, of Vancouver, made the
trip and was exceedingly well pleased
with the result. The "John" had a
large consignment of freight for Island
points. Owing to the alterations on the
Prince Albert not being completed in
time, the sailing of that steamer was
postponed for a week.    The following
passengers were for Island points:
Aliford Bay—A. McDonald, Jane
Donald, M. McKay, J. McLeod, C. L.
Hanessy, J. McGlashan, Mrs. Bass,
Mrs. Gardner, J. Loiser, N. McLeod,
M. Bass, M. Losier, Mr. Clayton.

insist on is a change of seed. They will
not grow from their own seed year
after year; but you can keep up the
vigour of your seed by a good choice of
seed for a time. I recommend putting
seed in shallow boxes two months before planting, and regulate the warmth
accordingly, estimating to get the
sprouts about two inches by that time.
You will find this way a help in growing
potatoes for exhibition. Bulletin No.
49, from the Central Experimental Farm,
is the best work on potatees I have seen.

A Dream Into The Future.
It is invariably very interesting to
know what others write about the world
and particularly about Old England.
The following is a translation from a
recent editorial in the Vancouver German Press:
" Everybody knows that England is
not exactly blessed with too much of an
agricultural population, and a few days
ago in the British House of Commons
there was quite a lively debate on the
best method of stopping the emigration
of English farmers to Canada. The
Government was forced to acknowledge
the weakening of the farming population through emigration, and further
that it is powerless in the matter. Just
recently it was announced that there
has not for many years been such a
lively business in farms and farm lands
in England as at present, because so
many members of the English landed
aristocracy are selling out to settle in
Canada or Australia. Very significant
indeed; the situation in the Old World,
especially in Europe, is continuously
fermenting and a deep uncertainty and
uneasiness has taken hold of all the
people; what we see going on in England today has actually not been spared
to any of the great European nations;
except perhaps France, which suffers
anyhow from the surplus of deaths over
birtns, and the German Empire, whose
splendid economical situation restricts
emigration to some extent.
"No wonder that in view of such
events our mind travels into a future
which our present generation will hardly see, which, however, may be nearer
than some people think.
'' Whatever the outcome of the Balkan
War may be, in place of the old Ottoman Empire there will step in a number
of mighty and strong Slavish kingdoms,
so strong indeed, that they will in real
earnest hasten the process of becoming
"Slavish," which has been going on in
Austria and Hungary for about thirty
years, and the World will have to abandon the conviction, hitherto held everywhere that Austria is a German state.
Like the grip of a heavy iron hand Germany then will be enclosed on her
eastern and almost to the middle of her
southern frontier by the antagonistic
Slavonic races. History shows the
tendency of the people to advance from
the East to the West. It looks as if
this movement is again now in progress
in old Europe. Pressing ever westward,
long ago the Aryan race populated
northern Africa, southern America and
partly advanced even to North America,
looking for homes there. Bismarck,
with farseeing statesmanship, taught
the Germans the need of colonies, and
even if their colonies in Africa have developed slowly, there is yet another
part of the world unanimously acknowledged by the Germans as a suitable and
desirable sphere for a home in the West;
there is room enough for many millions
of settlers in the immense territories of
Brazil and Argentine.
"Again, the Anglo-Saxon race is
pushing more and more towards the
West. Already by the hundreds of
thousands the Irish race have founded
homes on the American continent and
the prevalence of the Scotch accent in
Canada is decidedly noticeable! Now
this westward movement has taken hold
of the real Engishman, even to the
Lord of the Manor. Does this not show
that the day may come when old Europe
will have passed its Acme and the people
may find it more advantageous to settle
entirely in the New World. Yes, the
day may come, when the English may
remove their capital and the residence
of their Sovereign from London to
Montreal, and the billions of dollars
spent today for the protection of the
little Islands, forming but an infinitesimal part of the whole Empire, may be
better employed in developing their
colonies. The English commerce and
industry, crowded together in the homeland, could be transplanted without loss
to the vast areas of abundant raw material offered by Canada, New Zealand
and Australia.
"One  thing,   however,   cannot   be

linger over the places of an honored old
age where mankind through thousands
of years struggled step by Step to its
present stage of culture and development. But this will not stop mankind
from pressing onward to the West.
Thousands of years ago Babylon and
Nineveh existed as the most conspicuous centres of world culture. The
archeologists are just today beginning
■-'      *    ' '==
to realize the magnificent stage of development reached by those cities—and
yet they are sunk in ruins ! The progress of the world was not hindered in
the least by these events ; and so the
morning may dawn when this dream is
nearing its realization, even if the bodies
of those who lived through the twilight
of this process may have been put to
rest long, long before.

HAIDAS AND THEIR LEGENDS
(Continued from page 3)
inland on a mountain side of the Stickeen
country, This rare and much desired
plant was grown in the shape of an
extremely large tree by the Stickeen
chief on the top of the meuntains. The
Haidas determined to possess the same
weed and as they were unable to attack
this chief and carry away the tree
bodily, they went over secretly to the
Stickeen district armed with bows and
arrows. Finally one of them was
successful. He saw the tree from a
distance and shot at it and was successful in bringing down one or two seeds.
These he obtained and carried away
carefully preserved to the Haida land.
In the following spring he put these
seeds into the ground and they grew,
and from these plants all the Haida
tobacco afterwards procured eventually
sprung.
