The prospect for the coming  year's business is much better than  It was this time last year. 'Tis said  that business runs in cycles.

And if we are all  united to make business better during the comiiig; year 4tiiev altogether  likely that-we -shall,see.ere. the end  of.the year we have passed through  the pertod^-pfrr.,depr^s.sion,,"1and.. after  the crops.of. 1923--be enjoying;a period of such improvement that we  shall'say, to/each:other that prosperity is again'coming.our, way,"let us  make thei-inostrof it..' -  We read-'thot-'coriditioiiB have;been  improving 1;iirthe east* for-some time  and that, same confidence in business  musteventuallyaw-ork its r way to the  Pacific Coast: - "It * can't come.- .too  soon; and./may ;1923Lsee us enjoying  again bigger, and abetter business'.  feel that they cannot secure legislation from either of- the older parties  that will place them' in a .position to  .demandvthat'.they have better conditions ..as to.the marketing of.their  product, especially.. Unfair legalized competition for the farmer ��������� n  placing him in a position that does  not bode well "for the interests'of agri  culture in this province; and agriculture in its various phases is the larg-.  est interest in this province ��������� at the  present time.' There is always-this  to say too about that interest, that  when tho farmer 13 prosperous * tho  residents of towns and'villages have  a.,better chance for fair trade conditions.  But if the farmers of the province  wish to have a party, of their.own,  we-want to see'them tackle the two  older parties without a handicap. ,  What',-are:-:we doing,,these ,.days_ to  help   out   community^conditions.'.'

Farmer party of-this province.-have added to- their,"numbers,-* those who are  for 'keeping Bowser.down' and those  who are, for 'keeping Oliver out". It  will be the strangest bed* in which  politicians ever" kept "each'"~other conv-  pany. Just think of the divergence  of opinion and how long it -would  last!- How do you*suppose it could  be controlled long enough "to formu-  ' latera policy. There sure would be  s\n awful noise���������a regular; Bedlam  of choruses. And we are not sure  but-that it would be worse than the  pree;ent 'Bed of Justice' at Victoria,  where everybody goes to sleep and  lets0; the -affairs of-the- country, drift  at its own rsweet .will. In either  cases we would "not'know what was  doing. -But -bfgt-.noises always attract attention.  There certainly, is 'not any object  ions to the farmers of the country  having a party of their own, if thoy  so desire, but to include the malcontents therein would be to defeat the  object for which the party was formed,'- The two older parties will be  that much stronger without the discordant ones. The farmers of the  country may not be getting as- fair  treatment as they think they should  be-but nothing can be gained by the  bringing in of a strange discord into  the organization.

Various methods of; protection  are recommended, and all of them  have points of merit,' but the seasons;  vary so.much that a method of protection that will give- success one  year may.prove a. failure the next.-  With "over.' thirty years' ��������� experienci  in,- Wintering roses at Ottawa - - the  conclusion "reached is-that1 soil will  give-the. best protection taking-one  year, with "another.-- ��������� '  ��������� .

In other parts of Canada where  there is more snow or in milder  parts of Canada where protection is  necessary, the bending of the canes  down and holding- them "down witn  soil may be sufficient', though it will  be safer to protect the. base and  roots .with- a-mould of soil .in case  there .may be severe - weather or  little snow. At Ottawa this plan is  followed, the mound being made ten  to twelve -inches high. Leaves or  brush .are-then" put over the exposed  part of-the canes. -In ..Winter's, with  little snow and when low temperatures come early in the season the  canes' will -be killed to the" mound of  soil, but, as a rule, the part-of the  cane in the soil remains alive, and  in the Spring the bushes are pruned  back to the uninjured part, and  strong growth and abundance of  fine blooms will be obtained.  In the case of climbing roses',  which may be very difficult to protect with soil, it has been found that  if a long bottomless box is put over  the canes after they.have been laid  down and then this filled with dry  1 leaves and. the top;put .on so rain  will not get in, the canes will, as a  rule, come through well, but very  early in the Spring the lid should  be lifted in order that air may get  in and dry off the canes so as" to  prevent the development of disease.  ���������W.

That  is  why/  most of the actual work in the*"rice  fields   is   done   by   girls,   girls   who"  ���������smile  and  chatter as  tho-igh  ever-"1*  'lastingly' wading' in ' the   glorified  mud  puddles  of  rice  fields   were,a  jollification   rather' than'   .a'    labor.  But   the .smile  is  characteristic   ofthe   Japanese,  working   or   playing.  I.t is a national trait.. Duringmost,  of the year Japan is a smiling- land,  and  no   doubt  the  people  come  by  their propensities honestly enough.  Rice   is   grown   in   water-covered  .fields.. 'If  the water  isn't there in  thY> first place it.has to be pumped  " up   by  curious    little    water    tread  wheels   of   one-man - power.     These  are always worked by men .because  ' it is one of the easiest jobs on the  rice farm. - After, the fields are" covered by" about a foot of dirty'water  .they are-ploughed.    This also is" a  man's job, ar.dYa man usually, does  it,   probably   because,  the   ox   that  draws the-plow needs  that, kind of  tal-kir.g-to.

Large-metal combs  stand in  wooden frames and the straw is first  pulled   through   these,   the   ears   of  grain being torn from the straw in  the process.    The threshing is done -  by flails and  the  straw  is  cleaned  by large fans in the 'hands of girls.  It is- then ground to flour by hammering  with  heavy wooden  mallets,  or in primitive hand mills, and finds  its  way   to   the   table   in   countless'  curious   and  delectable forms,  such  as   only  Japanese  cooks  know.
