We have proof every Week that those who use the  columns of this paper for advertising ,are   amply repaid.   Of  course  people  may  know that   q,   certain  man does business in tho town and  may even know what kind af goods  he sells, but the mere.fact of reading Ji.is locals or his ad. in this.pa^  per, may be the message that will  convey to thousands thp fact that  they'require some article that can  be purchased aft the advertised store  Don't forget that if /y.our business  is not woaith advertising that you  should advertise it for sale.   A ous-  iness  that is not wort'n   advertising is not worth having.  There must be money in politics  In some oases it beats the newspaper business, in faot we do not  know Of any business to equal it  We cite the following example. In  1904 Mr. J. Hawithornthwaite was at  work- on. the roads near Nanaimo  for $2.50 per day and if the truth  were told, glad to get that amount  for his day's work. Eight years afterwards he lays politics to one  side and proudly boasts-of the com  fiontable sum of $125,000. No wonder the woods are full of "hot air  artists" when it pays so well. . So  much "unearned increment" cannot  be good for a Socialist, and mfact  wehae'our dauts about Hawthorn-  thwaite being a Socialist any-longer. iHe must surely belong. ,t.o the  capitalist class.  The following taken from an up-  country paper shows that there are  sL'.ll some o-d fossils 'who cannot  fall  in with modern methods:  "In a recent editorial in this paper the editor thereof has been  painting in brilliant colors the advantages that would accrue to this,  city by reason of a telephone system. While fully in sympathy with  any project leading to advancement, I roust say that in regard  to a telephone that such an in-  struiment is an abomination and  that I would re/fuse to have one In  my house or dffi.ee. They are certainly not ornamental and their utility is questionable. We have goi  along .very nicely without a telephone system for a number qt  yearB'and it is 'my opinion that,we  can continue to do so. I have di  no time found them a satisfactory  medium of conversation for orio  is liable at al!L occasions to be cut  off in the middle' of an important  conversation and 'is continually  subject to otheir annoyances that  try one's temper and sour one/s  position. You notice this in large  cities, where the residents are mt.  a state of nervous collapse. More  than one physician has assured me  that this condition is due in a large  measuret o the continual listening  to and talking into a telephoae."  ������������������      ,     ��������� ,i  The following ar^iclte is written  by Arthur Brisbane of the New  York Evening Journal:  We have more than onlcfe catted  the attention of business men and  citizens in general to the important work that is 'done by the- editors of the small newspapers and  to the great value of those newspapers  as  advertising mediumn.  It would be impossible to keep  this government going, ilmpossi/ble  at least to k-ep representative ov> ���������  eminent alive in this oountry, tf n  were not for the ��������� thousands of  newspaper, editors scattered over  the   land, every   one   of them    ?j  lie affairs.  Wherever two railroads,cross and  .Lhere is a town or village, thwro is  fortunately for the country,   a   i'o  jal editor.  He talks daily or weekly to his  fellow citizens concerning .affairs  that   'most  vitally   interest "them.  The editor watches tho two railroads. Ho watches the affairs of  his township, county, pnovanco and  dominion.  He is for thorn an ey-e that does  not sleep, a man alert and da-  vote dto thoso that are his constituents.  If the railroad crossing ^Jti'lis loo  many, if the railroads combine to  charge too niuch or to servo too  poorly/'if itlhc judge, governor u.  mayor seems m'ore of a railroad  a'ficial than a people's official cho  editor is there to.tell -about it. '  Thci local editor speaks to his  roaders as one friend speaks to another.  They know him by Bight. They  know, his record. They know the  high fight that he has made and is  making. They know for how smail  a reward he renders efficient, unselfish service. And a word from  him means more than many colums  from some annonymous and .unknown  "editor  of the  big  city.':  A man writing fearlessly in some  representative member's hdme io ivn  can do more to keep that puoli.-;  official "straight" than all the mel-  ropoltian newspapers put together  Public men know the  power  of  the   local  editor and  of   the  local'  newspaper.   It is   a   pity  that  the  business men o)f the country are ignorant of that power.  Every individual," every newspap--'  er, every concern of every 'Sor*t jn  Canada,   depends   on the   general  prosperity and average intelligence  of the country.  The man who has something real  ly woirth' while to advertise, could,  if. he would use the local papers  intelligently, multiply his sales, by  ten. Make himself known to millions that do not know; him andlpat  himself- at the head pf hjis lim ol  competition.  If the automobile manufacturers  who attract attention just at his  moment would put their 'advertising intelligently in the looal newspapers, paying a good, (flair rate  and offering good v. hr, they eould  very soon increase the output of  automobiles.  The smallest af the country news  papers has amiang its (readers one  or five or ten or a hundred m'en  that could be made' to buy ��������� a car  now and will buy one eooner oi  later..' 'Some intelligent automobile  manufacturer with the right kind  of product will realize this .and- sell  tens oif thousands o fears through  the lo/oal newspapers before his  competitors know what happened,  The average oif prosperity and of  -wealth among-.'the readers of a  country newspaper is far greater  than among the readers df a great  metropolitan daily, and, in . proportion to the cost lof advertising  intelligent publicity through ihe  country newspaper gives by far the  best results.  And the prosperity and the intelligence of the country depend  upon "the work done by sometii.fli-  like , 'fcwio thousand news pap'ei-s  most of them small and poorly  paid, for their work /throughout  Canada  What we have said about automobile   advertising   refers   to   ud-  .veintiising in other lines.   The dwellers   in  the cities, readers   of  the  metropolitan ' dailies,   have   before  their eyes the .temptations and attractions of the great 'stores'which  oannot be reached by the readers  p'f'flie country newspapers.   If our  business 'men realized their pppor  tunitieis they would fight -for  extended parcel post, and they would  make of every-country newspaper  an 'active- distributing agejney, and  doubling and trebling the Country's  prosperity  and  industrial activity,  Very few realize what it means  when a man undertakes the public  ation of  a daiily, or weefkly news  paper in  a small .place.  The editor risks everything, pov-  ejtty, bankruptcy, indifference , of  the public, and at best his reward  can be very small.  lit is not likely that the Industrial Workers otf thc World will  move to Mexico and set up a new  republic, although it might be well  if they did so, in order that'the rest  of mankind' might have an opportunity to "look on" and see how, it  was clone. With' them it may be a  ease of it being easier to talk of  what should be done than the real  acit of governing.  r- u ��������� i  3=S  OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO  O ':'  O  O  O  O  60000000000600000000000000  WHEN FOWLS MOULT  Then Is the Proper Time lo Keep a  WiUchlng l'J'������ .for Stock Most  Suitable for Breeding.  Moulting is a natural process, and  no drugs or tonics other'than sultnblo  feed, should be required. A good laying ration, provided it docs not tend  to ���������fat-ten thc fowl excessively, is quite  suitable during1 this season..Some advise adding  a  little  ground  oil   meal  or linseed meal to the ration,' and, of  course, it is necessary that the flock  ���������receive sufficient animal food or meat  in   some   form,   because   nitrogenous  material is essential to thc growth of  feathers.- Whole grain can  bo  fed  in  litter, or well scattered amid the grass  .every   afternoon,    while   green    food  is   suitable   for   the   morning   meal.  Grain alone  will not make  the  best  plumage;   many  poultry   breeders  do  not feed enough meat and vegetable  foods during this period.    Pure water  in abundance(is also necessary. Where  high-class show, stock is kept,  some  advise  keeping  the   hens   out  of  the  hot   sun   during   the   time   the   new  feathers are coming in, claiming that  the  sun fades  the  color  of  the  tips'  of  the  small,  growing' feathers,, and  ���������that the result is a plumage that is  faded   or   mottled,   and   too   light  in  color.     To   remedy   this   latter   condition  necessitates ' keeping  the  hens  inside   on   bright-days   and   not   exposing them  to the-sun.    Where the  -hens  have  the /ran^.of  a .full-grown  orchard,   they '���������'will* ''not  suffer   much  from . this,  as   the, trees   will ��������� furnish  enough shade.  The'moulting season'is also a good  time to select the stock for breeding  and laying purposes. If the breeder  .watches his flock closely, he will  notice that the strong, vigorous fowls-  pass through tlie moulting period  much more quickly than those of  ^ickly, weak constitution. The robust  hen, with 'reserve vitality, will pass  through the moulting period very  quickly, and will hardly cease laying  for a short time; while the* poor layer,  with the narrow head and body, and  the long, thin beak and dull eye ���������  all of which indicate weakness ��������� will'  be several weeks, producing her new  coat of feathers, and will not lay again  for some time, probably not until  spring is approaching. This, then,  affords one' of the best reasons to  weed out the undesirable birds and  select the profitable individuals. Do  not neglect the fowls during this  season. Keep them well fed, thriving  and free from vermin, and do everything possible to keep up their'vitality  and encourage early moulting.  Now is.the proper time to get a bar-,    ... .>  ,     gain; in ��������� horse blankets. " Selling in.  order to clear out the winter   stock   ,;  20 per cent Below Marked Price  J. GERNAEY  P.O. Box 45' . '   Abbotsford, B,C.      1  LIVERY AND FEED STABLE  i  Toll Taken by Weeds.  Did you ever stop to think of the  tax you are paying- to keep up the  weed crop? If the township should  levy a tax on your crops equal to  25 per cent, of the value, you would  rebel in. righteous indignation.  Wouldn't you? Yet a good many of  us permit a stand of 25' per cent, of  weeds to occupy our fields and think  we are doing pretty good farming too.  Why not grow grain or roots, or  some other good crop, where that  weed tax is now growing? The weeds  give no return. They draw more  heavily on the water supply and plant  food supply than paying crops. Paying  crops and weeds cannot occupy land  at the same time. Let us grow paying crops and get profits rather than  pay  taxes.  Pound for pound, the plant food  required by crops and by weeds is  almost the same, but weeds are better  food gatherers. The greatest difference comes when the question of  water arises. Weeds not only require  more water but 'are able to get it;  From 300 to 700 pounds of water are  used in producing a pound of dry  matter in our common crops. Weeds  require even more.' . If it conies to a  contest as to which, will get it, the  weeds win.  In letter-writing, 'with men th������  greatest difficult " is in -beginning a  ���������letter; with women it is more difficult to leave off. Hence the feminine  postscript.

Sunshine Is one of the best articles  in the hennery, as in tho home. The  chicks which start'In tho world with  two or three weeks* of sunshine may  almost shako their feathers In disdain  at (he iiBual diseases, of chick childhood. It Is the cold, darnj) weather  which brings about bowel trouble almost every time. Clennllncss and sunshine will rout It if anything will,  But there are other precautions which  may bo taken to ward It off. Powdered charcoal in food or drinking  water or both Is an excellent corrective. A drop or two of camphor  In the drinking fountain Is also an  antidote. Tea made of blackberry  roots Is recommended for the disease  in Its Incipient stage. Drooping wings  are a sure Indication of trouble; and  the patient should be at once removed  from the rest of the flock.  preforming; ghin^  '    Helpful Dairy Hints  AH dairy utensils should be exposed to the rays of the sun just as  much as possible after being thoroughly cleaned and ^calded. Sunlight  Is one of the beat known enemies of  bacteria. A rack on the south side  of the dairy house, where the sun's  rays strike most, is neither expensive  nor unhandy.    '  The best way to properly cleanse  the different dairy utensils is to first  rinse with cold or lukewarm water  and then wash with a stiff scrubbing  brush in warm water, first dissolving  some good washing powder. Afterwards rinse with boiling hot water  and place on an Incline on the "sun-  bath" rack. Don't turn them upside  down or the sun can't get In its work,  Cloth shou'ld not be used either in  washing or wiping the different parts.  If the rinse water used last is hot  enough no wiping Is required.  It's a poor plan to use hot water  before the can is thoroughly cleaned,  It should not be so hot that one can  not bear one's hand in -t. Hot -water  cooks the albumen in the milk and  the result is a yellow deposit In the  corners and seams.  The same rule for washing applies  to all dairy utensils ��������� cans, pai'ls,  separator parts, strainers, etc., and  never use wooden ware about thf  dairy. It can't be kept clean. A  wooden pail is all right for carrying  shelled corn to .the chickens, but -it  isn't all right for handling either milk,  cream or skim milk.

ANTED  Size of Poultry Flocks.  It is almost invariably found  thai  when hens are kept in small flocks  they lay better and are more healthy^  than when massed together in large  numbers.    It is not exactly  easy  to  'say just why this should be so, but  it  has   been   proved   over . and   over  again to be the case.    Probably it is  more a question  of purity  of  atmosphere than anything else. Save under  exceptional   circumstances,   25   hens  should not be exceeded; if the house  is a particularly good one���������high, airy,  and  well   lighted���������'the  flock  may  be  larger, but, as a general rule, the best  results are obtained  when  25  is not  exceeded.. A week or two ago we saw  a house that was made to accommodate 350 hens, but the owner admitted  that these birds did not do nearly so  well ��������� as   his  other  flocks,   averaging  ���������about 18 to 20 hens.   The best system  of   housing   is   undoubtedly   on   the  colony plan ��������� small houses scattered  about  the   fields,   holding   not   more  than two dozen hens. When producing  eggs for hatching, it is a great mistake  to  attempt  running  more  than  one'-. male bird  with; each pen.    This  has often been tried, but very rarely  with success.   It is, on the other haiid,  a very bad plan to breed from a large  flock, of   hens   mated   with   several  cocks, for ih this manner it is almost  impossible to improve the stock.  Senator McLean, of Connecticut, ib  a great fisherman and hunter. Las;  spring he invited two companion's tt  accompany .him to a shooting camp in  the North woods. When they entered  the little cabin their attention was  attracted to the unsual position of a  new stove, which was set on posts  about four feet high.  One of the senator's companions began to comment upon the knowledge  woodsmen . gain by observation.  "Now," said 'he, "this man has discovered that the heat radiating from  the stove strikes the roof and the circulation is so quickened that tiie camp  is warmed in much less time than  would be required if the stove were  In its regular position."  The other was of the opinion that  ���������it was elevated to be above \- the  window in' order that cool and pure  air could be bad at night. Senator  McLean, being more-���������.practical; contended that it was raised in order  that a good supply of green wood  could be placed beneath it to dry.  After considerable argument each  man placed a five-dollar bill upon the  table and r*reed to let the guide  settle the dispute.  "Well," said he, "when I brought  that 'ere stove up th' river I lost  most of th' stove pipe over board,  and had ter set it up there so as ter  baV th' pipe reaoh through th' roof."  tHe got tiie money.

We  realise how important a matter this  is, ��������� becaus," unless.;they are marketed  when prices are high, a considerably  smaller profit is made. If killing birds  only are forced, no harm ensues, but  the danger arises when some of these  chickens are retained for stock pur-  ���������poses. By all moans force the marketing birds, because It is in a large  measure immaterial whether sucb  possess sound constitutions, but it >  a mistake, and one fraught with rha  gravest risks, to employ such birds  for breeding.

ALANSON  Hardware and Furniture  r    ��������� i  '   Ripening- Creiini  on  tlie  Farm  There iti perhaps no other factor la  farm buttenhaking that causes more  trouble than the lack of proper ripening or souring of (he cream. On many  farms the ripening is done with no  other purpose In view than that of  causing the cream to churn more  easily.  The object in ripening cream should  be to cause the cream to churn more  readily, and to produce desirable  flavor and aroma. That cream will  churn more readily when sour is a  fact well known to any one who haa  bad experience . in making butter.  However, when it comes to the production of good flavor and aroma in  the butter, many vfail to grasp the  principle underlying the production of  these_ good qualities. The "main  reason why butter fat commands a  higher price on the market than other  fats is that it has a peculiarly desirable flavor and aroma which cannot . be exactly reproduced in, other  fats. For this reason ..It ia desirable  and profitable to develop these qualities in butter to the highest 'possible  degree. .,���������r,  ,, .-.-..  In order to produce.desirable flavor  It is very essential that the milk and  cream be handled under sanitary  conditions.  To Introduce filth into the cream  Is to itnroduce'. not only the bad  flavors which that filth contains, but  also germs which will tend to develop  some kind of a .bad flavor in th������  cream.  The Motorcycle on the Farm  The motorcycle Is appealing very  strongly to the Canadian farmer, because apparently it, brings him eo  much closer to town. This is evidenced by the fact that a few yeax������  back there were perhaps one or two  motorcycles In a county, now there  are hundreds.  Tho necessary trips and hurry up  calla to town can now be made in  one-fifth the time, but that is not aH.
