Vcitoria, Jan.- 17.���������By a  standing vote of 33 to 5 the  assembled delegates to tlie 28  annual meeting of' the B. C.  Fruit Growers Association went  on record here this morning as  favoring the introduction of indentured labor.  The association will immediately petition the Dominion  government to provide legislation permitting .such a means  of labor supply to be operative  during the war, and for such  time thereafter as may be deem  ed proper. It is to be distirict-  lly understod that such labor  would be under strict supervision and for agricultural purposes, only.'       '  The discussion on the general  subject of labor commenced at  2' o'clcok yesterday afternoon  L. E. Taylor of Kelowna stat-..  ing the case for the indentured  labor. '��������� ' ;  His material was based upon  personal experience of the system in South Africa and his  pleading was assisted by his  knowledge of the difficulties,  he as a farmer had experienced  during the last season not-to  mention the dark outlook for  the future, unless the problem  was quickly solved.  From a twenty years' experience of life in China and  close understanding of the Oriental, his attitude towards the  white races and his vision of  the future, J. Huntley of Pen-  ticton urged    with    eloquence  and feeling that no steps be  taken to bring ;n the China1  men under the proposed system  The yellow peril to Mr. Huntley  was no myth, and if in assisting this means to aereat a despotism today there were sown  the seeds of a much greater  calamity to the white races in  the future, the price would be  too great.

Thayer, GS.Ameri-  cu.ii artist, is now, respected by  the British army as the .greatest-  living camouf lager. -;  But in 1914 when he went to'  London to offer freely all ;his  wonderful knowledge of .military concealment he was. shunted from bureau to bureau, from  petty chief,to petty.chief,-.as -\  "harmless old crank."  For more than-; thirty-years  Thayer has been studying-'how-  birds and animals, concealed  themselves from the .closest 'ota'-  servation by blending with the  landscape and in iS96 had pub-,  lished an authoritative .treatise  on the subject. ..More.than that  ho was a.distinguished artist,  twice president of the-Society oE  American'Artists,, and knew all  about color blending.  As soon as war was declared  Thayer realizing, the importance of camouflage in warfare,  sailed for.England to tell, the  British about it To demonstrate  his ideas he. carried with him  some freakish suits with colored patches sewed all oyer theiri  in imitation of the different  birds. He was. erady to. show  just how the trick of "fading'  into the landscape". . could be  done. But it.was these freak  suits that queered him with the  War Office. If he had put on a  frock coat and a silka htt and  carried a gold-headed cane, he  might have been _ welcomed.  In the meantime French,artists were -gradually developing  the art of camouflage but they  were making slow progress, because they didn't know the secrets of the birds and the animals which Thayer had discovered years before.  Nevertheless, they were show  ing what could be done in concealing guns and men, and final  Jy the British began to catch on  Now Thayer is looked upon as  one of the most valuable men in  England and everything is .being done to make, up for lost  time.  Word has been received chat Pte.  Israel is among the soldiers to return the end of this week.  ���������MMMMMMjimimimiiamw^  HAY AND TEAMING  LAND   CLEARING  OR CONTRACTING  T. E.

CHARLES    LITTLE,  Abbotsford, B. C.  OUR JIMMY  He  was  only   a  kid   when   the   war  broke out,  Just a larruppin, lump of a boy.  With a. voice' that wandered ^from A  to Z "   .'  And a lignering love for a toy*.  He chored. around a bit on the farm  . In a casual kind of way  But   was   always   ready   to   cut   the  "  work  For a chance of a bit of play.  But one by one'ihe boys joined up  ..   To take their part in the war  Till only Willy was left with Jim,  Then Will joined  the flying corps.  Even his Dad joined up-and he  ," Would have beqh a success, I'know  if  he  hadn't   tried   teaching  the   G.  '   0. C. ' '       ' ���������     '     .  The way he should run the show.  So they labelled him back "Returned  with thanks"  And now. he's a Vag once more  Which, suits him  better  chan 'doing  his bit  /.��������� .By sweeping the Barrack floor.'  Now Charlie's away with the Foresters :  And Alan away with  the  Guns  And Willy's gyrating up in the air  Dropping grenades on tha Huns. ,  So Jimmy was left in charge of the  farm . :  And Mother and Sisters too.  'Twas strange to see how that careless youth  Steadied himself and grew. -  He'd a dozen cows to milk each day  And the calves and pigs to feed  To fill the cistern and split the wood  And such things as che women  need.  T-Ji1.   developed   a   back   like  a   threo  \ ear bull  And a hand  like a walrus Hn.  Though   his  voice  would   still   start  down in the bass  And end  up a trifle thin.  But Jimmy had the time of his lite  When  the girls came  to pick  th->  fruit.  Tho what brought him    a    cropper  right off his perch  Was a girl in an overall suit.  ir she got a  bit of a  thorn  in her  hand  Hlie'd run off and look for him  And it took him an hour to dig it out  So  gentle and  kind   was  Jim.  And   if   about   then   he   forgot   the  cows  And pigs got a trifle lean.  Remember���������, the   girl   in   the   sporty  trows  And. that Jimmy was not sixteen.  I'm proud  to  be called  a  friend  of  .Jim  And I honor his brave young heart  And  none,  though  they're proud of  the lads who fight,  Can deny that he's done his part.  Ah;  War with its  dreadful thundei  cloud  Shews the silver lining when  It proves that the British boys today  today  Have the spirit of British men.  ���������J. S. Ranier.

SPECIAL VS. SIDE LINE  ��������� At this time when economical production is of first consideration, the question of  whether production should be  increased by encouraging the  number of poultry farms or by  increasing the flocks kept oil  farms and in back yards in the  towns and cities, becomes of  special interest.  Poultry Specialist.  That'the poultry specialist  usually gets better results than  the farmer, goes without saying  He gets better results because  he has to; if he did not he  would soon be out of business.  He has nothing but his poultry  to depend on; he must show-a  profit: It costs him so much  more to feed his poultry than-it  does the farmer that his only  salvation is in increased production. He must get it or fall  by the wayside���������one of the failures in the poultry business.  With the" present high and  the ever increasing prices of  feed, it is becoming more and  more difficult for the specialist  to show a satisfactory profit so  that we must turn for increased  production to sources where the  feed problem is not so acute.  This brings us to t he mixerl  farm where a floe kis kept as a  side line and to the town dweller.  Farm Flocks.  Every farm    in the country  should carry a flock large en- !  enough to make the best use of  the    unsalable    grains,  vege-'  tables and wast milk. There are j  a few farms that could not to a!  great advantage carry a flock  of a tleast one   hundred hens.  But the flock must be put on a  business basis. One member of  the  family,  preferably one of  the younger members,  should  be given full charge.    Careful  records shoul be kept and all  wasters promptly   disposed of.  In this way the production may  be greatly   increased   without  any corresponding increase in  cost.  Most of the work will be done  by one of the younger members  of the family. It will interfere  very little with the general  farm work. It will generally be  i~.~4.^  \jxl xuvj uuUi,   ^UL_,yj   ou  ul/" i  ; x^ei   iiiuoii  ui.   uio     iuvvox"  &l"UUvj  'jjiuuuGlb limy' ue leu to inuuuoe  I u'gi-eittur pi-out .ui'an u &oiu ox1  ' itM lu ixay outer nve stock.  1 ' I'llO 4>iUiA-A Jll'll .b: iOCii..    ,  I -  Tno gnjiiieai nope tor mcrea-  !seu.,pi-uuuciiou: ac tne present  tic iios ui tne baoK yard nocks,  /nioru is no reason why ever}  ic'ity, town and village should  ! not be wholly or in great part  at any rate, self-supporting  ��������� from an egg standpoint. There  are hundreds and thousands of  .dollars' worth of good feed  thrown in tlie garbage pails  every day.,.The waste ..going on  even yet in our cities is simply  appalling. The kitchen waste  from the ordinary family of five  or six people niaybe" fed-to best  advantage to a flock of about,  twenty-five birds. This is1 more  than many will want to keep,  but a flock of this size will only  require a house about twelve  feet square, even a little less  will do, no yard room is neces--  sary and the . eggs produced  should keep the house' supplied  and still leave enough to sell to  less thrifty neighbors, to pay  for all the supplementary feeds  which it is necessary to purchase.  What is more tempting to th"^  appetite than an absolutely new  laid egg from a fldck that has  been cleanly feed? '"Once used  to home produced' ; eggs, the  consumer will never be content  to depend on store eggs. If you  don't believe this^ try it.  Under the present" conditions  increase reproduction should not  be brought about by increasing  the number of poultry farms,  but rather by increasing the  size and number of farm flocks,  flocks may be kept largely on  thing but good producers and  last, but of primary importance  by the increase in number of  back yard poultry plants where  flocks may be kept lragely on  feed that would otherwise be  wasted:  .
