The results of such  a test show what proportion of  the seeds are vital, but a more  accurate idea of the value of the  grain for seed could be gained  from a soil test.     Such tests are  net practicable in a laboratory  where   thousands   of   samples  are under test at one time.  Any one can   test   seed   for  I jlpjj ! himself by putting one hundred  jijj;j| j seeds taken "just as they come"  \\) |lj ! from the grain he wishes to test,  in soil in a flower pot, box or  other convenient receptacle.and  keeping  it moistened,  but not  wet, in some place where it will  jj $ j be not too warm in the day time  '] ?>1 !and where it will be cooler, but  '���������j! j will not freeze, at night; the al-  l|| ��������� fernation of temperature favors  "j germination.    By noticing   the  ; number    of    plants    produced.  j whether they come up quickly  I j and are strong or weak, one can  ;'    determine the suitability of the  grain for seeding purposes more  accurately than from the results  of a test which he does not see.  ] f seed that is known to be   of  strong vitality can  be  planted  under exactly the same conditions as the seed whose vitality  is being    determined,    the test  will be more valuable.  Cleaning grain over a good  fanning mill to remove from  one-third to one-half of the  bulk including all the light,  shrunken and immature seed?/  will greatlly improve its quality  as seed.

BRITISH COLUMBIA -TELEPHONE Co.  Limited . l"  Thrift mid Economy  The new War Savings Certificates which, have been created  by the government to encourage thrift and economy and to  give everyone an opportunity  to assist hi financing our ' war  expenditures, are now on sale  at every bank and money order  offices in Canada. - The $25  certificate sells for $21.50, the  $50 for $43, and the $100 for  $80.  As an investment these certificates offer mar:y attractive  features���������chief of which are the  absolute security and the excellent interest return.    For every  now, $25 will be returned at the  ! end of three years.  There are other features  which are especially interesting  to small investors. First, the  certificates may be surrendered  at s.ny time, if the buyer should  need his money; and second,  each certificate is registered at  Ottawa in the buyer's name and  if lost or stolen, is therefore  valueless to anyone else.  But while they are excellent  from an investment standpoint,  the certificates should appeal  . frongly to Canalvms because  they offer to ' those who must  serve at home a splendid opportunity for a    most    important  DEPARTMENT OP  FINANCE  OTTAWA  district, which includes a much  larger district than Mission City  or Mission  Mimic pa lily.

February 8th:  "The Mission City Board of  Trade yesterday sent a request  to the civic finance committee  for a grant of $200 towards the  expense of a campaign for the  extermination of the mosquitoes. Mayor McBeath pointed  out that this request came from  a municipality which was not  affiliated with the B. C. Union  of Municipalities, and considered it a good argument why Mission City should be urged to affiliate. The request was referred to the executive of the Union."  For the especial information  of Mayor McBeath, Mayor of  the City of Vancouver, it might  be mentioned that Mission City  is not a part of the Mission mu  nicipality; neither is Mission  City a municipality by itself.  Mission City where the Board of  Trade is centred, is a part of  the great unorganized district  of .his wonderful province, and'  hopes some day to become in-  coiporated, when it would be to  the advantage of the little town  to do so. But until then the  government looks after our affairs, and the Board of Trade  is composed of the business men  of the town, who knowing the  jieods of the community by close  contact, make recommendations  to the government.  The objection of Mayor McBeath falls flat, and we would  liki to see his finance committee signify their willingness to  he'p out the mosquito infested  X  HUGH wicj  General Blacksmith  And Hdrsdstioer  Carriage aud Repair Work of  all Kinds  Automata Repair Work  S&t_a������aot__t& Guaranteed  Nast to Alexandria Hotel  HirN'$?INam>N B- o.
