C,  was successful in the Legislature  yesterday in getting the jury act  amended so that women may now  sit on juries in the courts of this  Province. He did it by getting  thrdugh an amendment to* interpret  the word "person" in the act so as  to mean male or female.  Because of family duties and for  pther reasons it will .be necessary for  .women to say whether they want -tp  serve, he explained.- He proposed  that this be done by giving, them 15  days' notice before their names are  placed by the sheriff on the jury list.  If a woman feels- she cannot serve  all she need do is to notify the sheriff to that effect.

" , ���������,  The value of such an industry , to,  this city and district would be great  almost beyond calculation! " 'Incidentally, it would establish tjie fortunes of the Fraser as a highway for  ocean traffic. .There is no longer any  quest ion of Impediment to the free  navigation-of the river, thanks to'the  'advanced stage at which the protection works at .the mouth have arriv-  e'd; nor is there lack of prospect  of free' use being made of the facilities' offered. The main impediment  to the growth of shipping on 'the  Fraser is the start; sinse ships* are  shy'of ports not .generally in use.  But' given steel manufacturing, that  of itself would ensure the presence  of sufficient shipping .to.warrant'the'  development of general ^traffic  through' this' port.  The grain trade, now insisting on  an outlet- via the - Pacific, of course  wilVbe a great factor also in making  regular" shipping- to and< from"1" the  Fraser. In-this connection this district has much cause foil gratitude  to our influential'neighbors .in'Vancouver, whose main reward, for* the  encouragement of this'expected traffic' via the Pacific will naturally, be  the greater local trade to be done' by  .their city with the communities' on  tlie Fraser- to be made by the handling of the grain-and the flour and  oiher like industries to follow. -It is  no1 secret; that both the transcontinental lines look with favor on the  Fraser river' as:the base for the export of grain, and that whatever  may be done, in connection with  ,their terminals at Vancouver there  rwlil be provided on .the Fraser also  "ail granaries necessary for active export through' this port.  The confidence in the future of  this city and' district shown by our  .citizens in'so many ways, never had  more -sane foundation' or more likely  prospect bf justification by works,  than it has today.  which they might be forced to rely  on the quail tics-of their own 'souls.

A HYMN   OF HATE  "To put Oliver out and keep Bowser out." This is the sort of hymn  of hate that the newly organized  "Provincial Party" is raising in its'  efforts to attract to its banner, those  who feel they are at outs with both  the old line parties. Theoretically  the idea of forming a new party on  these principles may appeal to, some;  but in practise it is not sound. Parties that are not founded on principles will not abide; they will survive  no longer than the personal animosities that gave rise to their origin,  There is nothing in the announced  platform of the new party-that .could  not be striven '. for and achieved  through the existing party channels,  indeed some of the new party planks  are-to-be found in the . platforms of  the old parties.-r-Cranbrook Herald.  VARIATION IN LAYING IS '      .  PUZZLE TO POULTRYMEX  Professor V. S ,Asmunds"on, of' the  University of.'British Columbia, .admitted in his address.to the members  of the New Westminster Poultry and  Pet Sock Association recently,, that  there were quite a number of things  that happened in a poultry run that  science had not yet been able to get  to the bottom of. One ,of these was  the variation in laying birds.  Why a. bird should stop laying after laying well, and then as suddenly start laying again was not known.  Then there was the bird that would  lay one day, miss the -next, and lay  jh'the third. This sort of ( thing  could not be avoided apparently  either by feeding or.by breeding. A  hen might'be a good layer and have  daughters who were good layers,  these daughters might have 'daugli-.  ters but still the ' variation might  ;urn up. Then the . birds varied in some seasons, but this, was  where proper feeding.came in as a  remedy to a certain extent.  This variation also affected the  hatchability of eggs. It varied in  some cases from 16 to 80 per cent.  It varied also with the seasons of  die year. The best results were undoubtedly obtained during the nat-'  ural breeding season Professor . Asmundson said. Eggs laid before  that time were not'so good as the  birds had not reached the best point  in condition after the winter, and  after that time the birds were worn  out after laying.  Birds; that were under light for  three months produced eggs of poor  hatchability. / Their vitality had,  been impaired, owing to being pressed for egg-production. For reproduction, he recommended the yearling hen, as one hud had time to  form a sound judgment as to her  laying capabilities. Reproduction  as far as the lien was '��������� concerned,  meant the laying of eggs, but reproduction meant to the poultryman  the-v.largest number, of hatchable  eggs. . Breeding was a very impor-'  tant part' in reproduction, he said,  and he gave instance of a certain  ���������VVyandotte hen. Her daughters gave  50.80, and 62 per cent, or an average of well over 60 of hatchable  eggs, while the three daughters pf  another hen not noted for any percentage, gave 60, 23 and 0, or an  average under 30 per cent. The  longer a hen was kept the poorer  would be the percentage of hatchable  eggs, but this did not mean that pul- |  A nice new stock of Wall Paper  has come to hand.

Among the protein. . feeds, Pro  fessor Asmundson recommended 12  quarts of milk mixed with the mash  for every 100 birds*,! - the beef scrap  not then ��������� being-. - necessary.. Protein  was great for feather-production, he*  said, as the feathers.- .were . largely  composed of .it., ,   ���������  He recommended two stalks of  kale and from 8. to.- 10y...pounds - of  mangols. If alfalfa--meal.was used, he  advised watching, for dark combs  arid giving a dose of Epsom's salts.  Buy English Soya-* beab meal, -he  said. Even the, American journals,  which do not. generally go out of  their way to recommend' anything  British recommend it. . The Japanese meal, he asserted, was not good.  The fat was not properly extracted  and it went rancid. '.  Fish scrap was not as good as  beef scrap, and could not take its  place. In the case- where three- pens  were tested; one with , beef' scrap,  one with beef and fish scrap 'in  equal percentages, and one witJi  fish scrap, the results were about  the same with the first two pens,  but the fish scrap pen .-was'a dozen  eggs per bird behind 5the other pens  in  the test.  . Meat scrap should not be' supplemented by milk in a mash, Professor Asmundson thought. Milk -was  one of the best feeds,'' but not in addition to meat scrap. * It was apt", in  that case to over-stimulate.���������Columbian.
