Do,not allow  any food to stand in front of the  chicks for more than .15 minutes, until they Eire three of four  weeks of age.  Get the chicks on the ground  as soon as possible, but see  that they do not gee chilled.  Watch them, also, to see that  ���������they do not crowd in corners  outside or inside the brooder-  house where they may get. chilled.  If one does not feed commercial chick feed after the age'of  four days they inay make an  excellent chick feed of their  own by mixing:  15 lbs Fine Cracked Corn; 10  lbs Fine Cracked wheat; 10 lbs  10 lbs Pinhead Oatmeal together. ��������� .  Mrs. Boyd is making rapid recovery after her operation and  is home again.  Don't forget the 5tli of May.  Ernest and Clarence Gazley  have enlisted and also Matt Nelson, so that all or nearly all of  those eligible for recruiting  have made application, some-  have been rejected owing to  some physical disability.

The cold weather is hindering  the gardener and farmer from  their customary spring work.  List  (From Fraser Valley Record)  A recruiting officer who has  been through the Valley on both  sides of the river informs us  that it is a common occurrence  for young men who are eligible  to enlist to avoid the approach  of such officers. Three hundred more men are required to  fill up the 131st battalion, and  he hints that local newspapers  publish his list of eligibles he  has the names of who have  failed to come forward. Quite  a long list has been prepared  for some points in the Fraser  Valley. We would rather pub-  blisli the names of those who  have enlisted, but of course if  the Progress and the Columbian  publish a list why the Fraser  Valley Record will be bound to  follow suit; but we believe in  giving the young men a real  good oportunity.  Fraser  liircr  Normal  The Eraser river is now a-  bo-.it three feet above low water  mark. The average rise for the  past few years at April 30th has  been 5 feet above low water  mark, and at the present rate  that will be the increase this  year at the end of this month.  The temperature of the room  where the incubator-is to be op-  crated should npt vary more  than-10 degrees F. The better  temperatures for the room in  which the machine is, operated  should range from 45 to 55 degrees -F.  The proper time to incubate  stock is from the 15th March to  the 15th May. Do not waste  time or money by hatching early or late, if you wish to be  successful.  Turn the eggs by hand. Patented turners seldom give good  results.  The time required for cooling  eggs must be governed by the  operator.  Ventilation is necessary for  good hatches. Begin opening  the ventilators on the sides or  top of the machine about the  9th clay on Standard made incubators, and gradually .open  the same so that on the 18th  night the ventilator is wide  opne.  ������������������-- Moisture..,should. be. supplied  in most    instances,    if    good.  strong, heavy chicks are expected.    The steaming process  works well if no other method  can be used To steam the eggs terd     w~a������J th   n������Lmeoi pt,  we usually take an old piece of  flannel and put in hot water.  Allow the same to^'saturate all,  it can; Then let surplus water  drain,off, and wring out. Then  place in machine on nursery  trap. As ��������� soon as the steam  stops'rising from clotli, remove  from the machine before it  cools off the incubator.  Fireless brooders seldom  give good results. They must  as a rule be operated at the expense of the chick.  The coal brooder stove is giving excellent results in this province (B. C.) The same can be  obtained in many places about  the Province.  If one does not wish to spend  as much for brooding equipment, the, small lamp-heated  broders may be used.  Many city poultry keepers  can make use of the electric  brooder. One, however, must  pay as much attention to the  chicks when using the electric  brooder as they do when using  any other system for the first  few days.  When the chicks are dry (24-  36 hours after hatching) remove them fro. mthe incubator  to the brooder!,Oat hulls  WOUNDED WHILE FIGHTING IN FRANCE i  (From Frasor. Valley Record  A cablegram was received on  Friday by Mr. T. J. Cox that his  son lDte. Percy Cox, -now in  France, had been wounded in  the leg. . Nothing further in the  way of particulars as to tho  seriousness of the wound, has  been received.  Among the casualty lists ys-  W.  A. Nicholson formerly of Mission City and one of the 'crack  shots' of his regiment. -  Report has it that both the  Cruickshank boys of Matsqui  who are now in France have  been wounded.  Moving in Steelhead  Valley Centre  (From Fraser Valley Record)  Other things besides snow  and shingle bolts are moving  in the Steelhead Valley, for Miss  McColm and a number of active residents have formed a  committee to arrange for a  grand rally of settlers and  friends on May 24th next.  The purpose is to hold a picnic, with sports, in the afternoon and finish up with a masquerade dance in the evening.  The school and grounds will be  utilized for the purpose.  Great times are foreshadowed; full particulars later. Several whom years and a growing  family might indicate were pass  ing into the stalls are promis-  arel ing to be "on the stage" and to  used by many for litter, and  they prove very useful. Give  the chicks drink of cool water  If they will not drink themselves, teach them to do so.  Apply a small quantity of  either vaseline or glycerine to  the crown of the chicks' head  to prevent the head louse from  doing damage.  Give the first feed when the  chick is 48 hours old. Opinion  differs as to what the best feed  is. Dry bread soaked in sour  skim-milk is a good food at this  time. Use by soaking the bread  in the milk; then squueze out  the surplus milk and place the  soaked bread on a shingle before the chicks.  K they will not cat of their  own accord, assist the backward  show the rising generation that  'whilst there's life, there's the  spirit to enjoy it.  Steelhead intends to adopt  Kipling's aphorism as its watch  word "To keep your light so  shining a little in .front'of the  next."  Keep your fears to yourself,  share your courage with, others.  but  It may be a little farther around  the corners of a square deal, but the  road is better.  No ��������� one is ever too poor, too ugly,  too dull, too sick, too friendless, to  pe useful to some one.  It is the  history of our kindness  that alone makes this world tolerable THE ABBOTSFORD'POST, ABBOTSFORD,.

A free  discussion at a board of.trade of  what will be in the best interests of the, town for its advancement, or is thought to be its  advancement always brings out  ideas which might be acted upon.  But here is the ticklish point  about it. "The ladies are applying* for the right of citizenship  in B.

To many  dairymen this has stari.od a  train of thougi/t resulting in  v<.:.s!Jy improved prospects!  To com*-,, right down lo business, why do you keep cows?  Surely it is in order that they  may contribute handsomely to  wards income. If you are already satisfied on that point,  well and good; but, one excellent result of cow testing is  the solid fact that it helps men  fo increase their income considerably; that is one remain objective point reached. The same  story is repeated in all provinces in the Dominion, it runs  something like this: from a  man at Barnston, Que., "My  cows average almost two thousand pounds of milk more than  two years ago" or again from a  Petersburg, Ont., "I have increased fourteen hundred  pounds of milk per cow, and  hope to go up another fifteen  hundred" or this, from a man at, ai"cl;  Hagersville,  Out,  "My herd is j  B.ulletin consists every phase of  \ lie cold storage problem is lucidly dealt with, especial attention being devoted (b the food;;  in which the simple life is most  concerned.

From  this viewpoint it is our true policy to augment our financial strength by multiplying our  productive exertions and by exercising rigid economy, which reduces to the minimum  all expenditures upon luxuries and non-essentials. Only in this way shall we be able  to make good the loss caused by the withdrawal of so many of our workers from industrial activities, repair the wastage of the war, and find the funds for its continuance. It  cannot be too frequently or too earnestly impressed upon our people that the heaviest  burdens of the conflict still lie before us, and that industry and thrift are, for these ,  who remain at home, supreme patriotic duties upon whose faithful fulfilment  our .success, and ' consequently our national safety, may ultimately depend."���������  Silt THOMAS WHITE, Minister of Finance.  ovixitf out or 1 own  2fi  PRODUCE   MORE, SAVE  MORE.

LET   US  PRODUCE  AND  SAVE���������  The war is now turning on a contest of all forces  and resources���������men, munitions, food, money. The  call to all is to produce more and more. It may be  necessary to work harder. The place of those who  enlist must be taken by those at home, men and  women, old and young. The more we produce the  more we can save. Produce more oh the farms and  in the gardens.    Save more and help to win the war.  LET  US^NOT  WASTE  OUR  LABOUR���������  In this war-time all labour should be directly productive or should be assisting in production. Make it  as efficient as possible. If your labour is on something  that can be postponed, put it off till after the war and  make your labour tell now. Making war is the first  business of all Canadians. Efficiency in labour is'as  important as efficiency in fighting.  LET   US  NOT  WASTE   MATERIALS���������  Begin at home.-. The larger portion of salaries  and wages is spent on, the home���������food, fuel, light,  clothing. Are any of these things being wasted ?  $20.00 a year saved from waste in every home- in  Canada will more than pay the interest on a war debt  of $500,000,000.  LET   US  SPEND   OUR   MONEY   WISELY���������  Are you spending your money to the best advantage ? What do you think of extravagance in war  time ? Tens of thousands of Canadians are daily  risking their lives for us at home. Is it not our duty  to be careful and economical ? Canadian dollars are  an important part of the war equipment.

MARTIN BURRELL, Minister of Agriculture.  THE  FOLLOWING    STATEMENTS    ARE    BASED    ON     REP.ORTS   CONTAINED    IN  "THE  AGRICULTURAL  WAR   BOOK,   1916,"   PUBLISHED   BY   THE  DEPARTMENT  OF   AGRICULTURE,   OTTAWA,   ONT.    ,  LIVE STOCK���������The herds anil (lochs of liluropc  have been greatly reduced.. When tho war is over  there will be a great demand for breeding stock.  Canadian farmers should keep this in mind.  \���������In 1915 Croat Britain imported (Ju'l.yON  tons'of beef, mutton and lamb, of which 3(vl,2-if)  tons came from ���������without the Empire. Out of  430,420 tons of beef only 104,907 tons came from  within the Empire.  The demands of the Allies for frozen beef,  canned beef, bacon and hams will increase rather  than diminish. Orders arc coming to Canada.  The decreasing tonnage space available will give-  Canada an advantage if we have the supplies.  E  l5SSY2M���������S���������Home consumption of milk���������buttcr  and cheese has inca-nserl of late years. 'The war  demands for cheese Have been unlimited. The  Canadian cheese exports from Montreal in 1915  were . nearly $(1,500,01)0 over 1914. Prices at  Montreal -Cheese : January 191/3, 15^-to .17  cents; January 101(5, I8j,,{ to ISH cents.

HENDERSON & SONS  A very sad drowning accident  occurred near Bonson's Landing last Saturday when Jack  I-Iowlctt, the fourteen year old  son of a Pitt Meadows farmer:  while fishing from a snag overbalanced and fell into the  Fraser. His companion Chas.  Alv/yn being at the time some  distance away, hurried to his  rescue and made two heroic attempts to save his friend who  struggled and fought him in his  drowning paroxysm so that he  was forced to let him go. The  body was found on Sunday  morning. The funeral which  was held Monday, at three o'clock, was largely attended and  among the numerous floral emblems was one from the Boy  Scouts who attended their comrades' funeral in a body.  The Girls' Patriotic Band  held a bazaar in Possett's Hall  on Tuesday the 25th inst, and  was well attended.  ' A surprise party was held at  Mrs. Tyler's residence last Saturday night. .Dancing and  games were participated in and  an enjoyable evening spent.  esmauosxsn  QflSSi  PROPRIETORS a  '-������������������   ���������������������������"  '���������'������������������'-���������'������������������   ������������������ ���������erne  LIVERY, AUTO and  FEED STABLES  I).
