A iCHANGE  OF  NAME  There'is a feeling with both the  political, pai tips of Westminster district that rlif name should be chang-  ���������".i from Westminster to cither that  j of Fraser cr Fraser Valley, so that  there will be no confusion Detween  that  of  New  Westminster.

It  may be eaten raw, in the way we do;  it may be dried in ovens or in the  sun and then ground down into flour  and after hte addition of. spices and  sugar, worked up into paste, which is  often put aside and kept for months  together.    The  fruit  is    also     very  good if peeled, split donw the centre  and   baked with  a  little  butter and  sugar.    The peel,.too, of the banana  stock, being of    a spongy    .starchy  character, is pressed into man's service.     It is pounded and boiled and"  thus forms a very    nutritious    food.  ! The young shoots cooked make a palatable vegetable, while the fruit boiled   in   its   earlier   green  stage  is   a  really excellent addition to any dinner.     A pleasant    drink    something  after  the style  of cider is  also  obtained from the banana by expressing  and   fermenting   the   juice.    In   the  tropics, we have seen, it is the staple  food of millions, but it might also, if  properly  treated,  take .similar  rank  with us.    It is scarcely ever realized  that as a form of nutriment it can  claim first place    among    vegetable  products that are food for mankind,  for it is twenty-five times as nutritive  as the ordinary wheat bread saten in  this country and forty-four times as  nutritive as the potato, thus, far outweighing the wheat or the potato Ta!  food values..    Hence on this account  its position  as  a  fundamental  food  or breadstuff is amply justified. 0.  Clarke Nuttall, Longman's Magazine  London.

The following is the interview:  "We are the only evaporator that  is workin ���������, because we are the only  one that hasn't got cold feet'', declared Mr. William McFarlane, head  of the Dominion Products Ltd., the  company which operates the evaporating plant in this city, .one at'Lad-  nor. and three others in various parts  of the province.  Mr. McFarlane was asked regarding the situation in this idustry and  summed it up somewhat as follows*  Most of the plants are closed down,  and .'none of them have any orders.  The plant' here and that at L.adner  are still manufacturing, ind propose  to keep on doing so, feeling (".on tide .'it  that' the orders will be^forthcotning  in due course' because their product,  is needed overseas. Just why ��������� there  are no orders in hand Mr. McFarlane  is unable to say. it is true h says,  that there' are plenty of potatoes in  England; in fact, he says there are  huge quantities.

"Farmers could make a profit out  of potatoes at $8 a ton at )ne time,"  HAIR  SEALS   ARE   ACTIVE  Hair seals are particularly active in  the Fraser river at present, when tne  spring s.almon is making its Arst ap-  he said. "They can make a profit out   pearance for the season.    Ot recent  years there have been, few springs  caught, and their scarcity makes the  ravages of the seal more apparent  than ever. Frank Picknoll, a veteran  fisherman says the seals "his year are  so bold that 'they put their f-iat on  the boat and fight you.' All the fishermen agree that it' is all DUt use-  itSFj to east a not nowaday, hii.-.ause  the moment a salmon strike'*? the net  a seal rushes for it and it becomes  a race between the fishermen and  the soal, with the chances, on the lat-  ts-r.

Mr. McFarlane Indicated that no  contracts wil be made until growers  are wlUTtig to accept ?1"j a ton.  This is a matter of the greatest  moment to potato growers, in the  opinion of students of Mia situation,  because it all depends upon the evaporators whether they will be able to  dispose of their potatoes or will have  a big surplus on hand. All reuorts indicate that there is little or no llke-  ilhod of an export market fiis yo-ir-  such as was available a year i.-;o.

From standpoint of 'loyalty to the Nation, and  the future of agriculture iu British  Columbia, and also from the standpoint ot good business, we appeal to  you to raise .the heifer calves.
