JUNE  3f.   1921  The Vancouver Sun would appear  to have our, premier guessing these  days. Our reason for saying this is  that Mr. Oliver is continually writing  to the daily-press. It shows a great  weakness on his part to take such undue notice of what is being said for  or against him or his government.  But believe us. this paper is not worrying about the unhappy days of our  provincial government, because wc  never did believe in John Oliver at  any time in his career during the past  decade or more. Me has been looked  upon as wanting in that great <iuali(y  of being constructive in his ideas,and  it is our bliqf that the day is not far  distant when the people of this province will rise and record their vote  against a government that has. no!  carried out its'promises about greater  production, colonization and placing  .people on the land; its promises of  RETRENCHMENT and REFORM;  its abolition of 'the'Patronage system  to say nothing about the pruning of  the Civil Service, and a few oilier  thin res.  Before Ihe last election the groat  cry .was that the government did not  have pnough, publicity 'from the papers of the'province: and only recently the government is accused of  purchns-ing a daily paper in the city  of Vancouver for ' the purpose nr  doubt of defending the government's  action But only a few days ago we  find that 'he premier denies that he  authori/.ed a certain explanation as  given'in the Vancouver World. Verily that paper will have one fine time  defending the Oliver government  unless it gets closer to the workings  of the government, and that at the  present stage would be extremely  dangerous.  We are beginning to think that the  Vancouver Sun will put Oliver on the  hike prettv soon, as it has in ordinary  everyday words 'got him 'buffaloed.'  right now.  at the time of purchase. This would  ippcar (o have a very importnt bear-  ,ng on the .matter. If by purchasing  ..he warehouse the government hoped  *.o save money over and above the  alternative'of rental'and interest, a  thorough investigation of tiie proper-  y value may well have resulted in a  ;lill Curl her saving for taxpayers.  The newspa pipit   I heir   last   nice  ���������:ouvor, elected as  Lroaijiirer,  Mr.  J.I.  l weekly)' of   ft.  C.  ting   held   in   Van-  their    seor.efary-  M.  Walker, of the  Endcrby Commoner, and there is no  reason to think otherwise (ban (hat  they made an excellent choiec, as he  's right in the game right up lo his  **ars and is one. of the buiiiesf little  editors in the province. He is editor  reporter, linotype operator, make-up  ��������� nan, devil and a few of the other  things', around a printing office in a  small.town.' He is sincere and energetic in his work and is in his district,  is considered a successful newspaper  man, many people enjoying his remarks from week to week. We make  this explanation, because lust, week  we stole a, piece from his paper for  our own ami may do so again, hut we  .vanf our readers to know (hat. when  so we arc quoting from a pa-  ist bought enough  newspaper men of  io appointed  to one  do  ve  ���������ler whose editor  of by the weekly  the province to  I  British Columbia was one of the  first provinces to extend .to woman  the right to vote; British Colubmia  voters were, among the first to elect  a woman to the legislature; British  Columbia was the first province in  the Dominion and probably in the  British Empire to honor its government with a cabinet minister's position by elevnting its lady member to  that post: and now comes the word  that the women of Canada want to  have women in the senate. The senate includes men who have made  their mark in politics, especially in  the opinion of the government or  party who appoints .them. It is a  party   appointment.  As much as the people of British  Columbia would like to see its woman member of parliament appointed  to tho senate of Canada, we believe  they must wait until such time a?  a Liberal government is in power at  Ottawa.  ��������� It is not certain that, the constitution of Canada would not have to be.  amended in order, that a woinar  could sit there. The phraseology of  the British North American Act takes*  for granted that onlv men are legislators. And there have been many  changes in Canada since 18(17. Since  that time women have the right te  vote, thev sit in the provincial I<���������������������������.**is-  latum and there is a woman member  in the BriHgh House of Commons and  the e^nstitutional difficulty, if any  could be easily made right, so that a  woman wouVl sit among the gre-v  '-wise me-i al the hoad of our government���������the senate.  Premi'-r John Oliver gives out v  f I atom out in the Vane* over I -rov infill which he is credited with making  what is purp'oted to be an answer (/*���������  ehargos made by the Sun that the  Ca^Mibell warehouse deal was no:  mad'* in tho best interests of 11k  peopK says the Kamloops Standard-  /���������entinel  In his statement the Premier is alleged to have said that "I have carefully eons-'dered all information available in "respect to Ihe purchase by the  Lifiuor Hoard of the warehouse of the  Campbell   Storage  Company."  Observing further, the statement if  credited to the Premier in another  part wherein he is reported as saying:  "Prom the'standpoint "of whether  lhe purchase price was fair from  the present market, value of real  property I have no inf''*rmal.ion."  . The attitude of the Premier in re-  H|)"H to this .matter has been somewhat puzzling. Since1 the .affair was  first brought, to his attention it. would  appear that he has had ample time to  secure information on all salient  points in connection with the deal.  Just what occasioned the delay is interesting to the people. It would appear that such information was avail- \  able to any who had the proper credentials and facilities for procuring  it.  But the premier delayed   his answer and then after such delay openly admits he has not been  informed  as to the value of the real property   j  of the very important positions in the  3.' C. Weekly Association.  Now we are going to "swipe" another piece from his paper, and of  course he can't get real angry at us  after giving him such a. puff. Under  the heading of "Rollicking Rotaries'  he says, "Vancouverites have discovered the secret of getting things done  Their various Public Service Clubr  do things, and show others how to do  them, The Rotary Club, the Canadian Club, the Kiwanas, and other organizations of a similar nature, Lo  Things and there is an inspiration for  others in the way they do them.  "It was the pleasure of the delegates to the Provincial Weekly Press  Association Convention at Vancouver  'asl week to attend a, luncheon of the  lot a vy Club held in the Vancouver  Hotel last Tuesday, as guests of Mr.  Erank Burd, manager of the Vancouver Province.  Then and there these newspapermen discovered the secret of Vancouver's progress. It was an inspiration  to see those Rotarians do the thing.  Every two weeks or so they lunch together as a body and at those luncheons some question of vital local im-  ���������ortanco is taken up. Last week  they had before them the job of raising $;!(J00, to be' turned over to the  Vancouver Clinic for the purpose of  giving poor and needy, underfed and  underdeveloped school children of  the city an outing of two weeks' or  more at the beaches and in the mountains close bv^all under the supervision of trained nurses and medical  men.  Did they raise the three thousand?  "Rotarians," said the boss' Rotarian  "We need this money, or. the poor  children of Vancouver and the Clinic  need it. We are not questioning if it  can he raised. We want to transfer  it today from your pockets into the  pocket of public service. > It mean;  $ 1 6.50 apiece.

In sections where*  a few years ago ten or a dozen eggs  a year from a hen were a rarity,  there are now hundreds that run to  from 153 to 250. In the Eastern  Townships, Que., 266 eggs have been  reached and from '150 to 200 is a  common record, in the Prairie provinces the Experimental Farms havo  reached high record. At Indian Head,  Sask., last year 105 pullets had air  average of 183.7. eggs, the highes'  being 292. At Agas'siz Experimental  Farm. 200 eggs are common and  from 250 to 270 are not rare. At  the Vancouver Island station 200 pullets gave an average of 195.97, 8������  going above 200. The high production of'300 "eggs in a year,has been  reached for one pullet. Hens ' that  cannot lay 200 in a twelve month arc  not wanted and no cockerel is retained unless his mother laid 250 eggs'ir  her pullet year.

EDMONTON  RECOGNIZING  BROOD  DISEASES OF   BEES  ���������Sl'AFLOWERS AS KIIjAGK  '"��������������������������� h -nteresf is being taken both  mi Canada and the United .States in  the value of sunflowers' as a silage  crop, particularly in dislricly where  corn is not a Yolia blo~ crop. Thr> claim  is' made thai sunflowers are;i hardier  crop than corn, withstanding both  both drouth and frost to a greater  degree. Insofar 'as the claims put  forth for sunflowers as a fpod for  cattle are virtually of recent origin,  experiments and investigation regarding them are particularly in an introductory stage. It is interesting to  note, however, that, an ami lysis of  sunflower silage .fed at an Idaho n-  grieullurnl experuiental station indicated that it compared favorably  with (/'oni silage. In Canada also  studies' of the rein-five: value of sun-  ���������'lowers and corn for silage purposes  suggest than in nutrition Micro is not  my great difference, although corn  s lo lie preferred, where It can be  ���������-leni.ifully and easily grown. Where  bis is not tho ca--*'*- sunflowers are  .n excel lent substitute.  When a hive of:?bees is examined  and something is- seen to be wrong  with the brood, close observation will  usually reveal the"trouble. ���������  The healthy bee .grub or larva lies  curled up in. its '..cell, plumb and  pearly -.white. ]'" If,^'scattered through  the brood-nest., there arc few or  many larvae that "have lost their  hape and become flabby, and appear  j's if they had beenj'm'elted, some turn  fug yellowish .or greyish, it is a case  ���������of European, foul'brood (melting  brood). The remedy is to unite the  weak colonics and replace the queens  with, young Italians .or resistant,  strain.  When a "healthy larva becomes  full grown, the cell containing it is  capped over . with wax. If, among  the capped cells some are seen to be  discolored or irregularly perforated;  American foul brood (ropy brood)  may be suspected and if, on opening  these cells, it is found that they contain a coffee-colored mass that will  rope out several inches on a match oi  tooth pick, there is no question about  it. The remedy for this disease is to  shake the bees into a clean hive fitted with foundation and" bury the  combs or render them into wax, disinfecting the interior of the hive with  a torch before it is used again.  If larvae are seen lying in the eel'  stretched out dead and darkened  with undamaged skin which wher  punctured lets out a watery curd, i'  is a case of sacbrood. . Nothing o?r '  be done for this disease, which usually soon  disappears.  .

SASKATOON  Scene of a Forest Fire.  '    It  was  only  during recent  years  ,that the public of Canada'began to  fully realize the value of the trees  of the country, and the necessity for  protecting  them.    One never knows  f the worth of a  tree until its shade  is gone.    Canada was so rich in forests  that the people imagined  that  their forests were inexhaustible. But  year   after   year   devastating    fires  swept over the wooded areas to such  an  alarming extent that  the people  at  last   realized   that   steps   would  have to be taken  to save  the trees.  Twenty   years  ago   the   Canadian  Forestry -Association   was   inaugurated.    To-day under the  presidsney  of  Mr.  C.   E.   E.   Ussher,  passenger  traffic   manager   of   the   Canadian  Pacific   Railway,   it   is   one   of   the  most flourishing organisations in the  Dominion.  The produce of the forests is one  of the greatest assets of Canada.  The pulp and paper business and the  lumber business supply tens of thousands with profitable employment.  The object of the Canadian Forestry  Association is to- preserve existing  forests, to encourage tree planting,  and provide the most up to date forestry administration.  The Association has now 12.500  members, the majority of whom arc  not financially interested in timber  limits, saw mills or paper mills. It  Is completely independent of government departments and commercial  bodies and has the more easily, on  that account, won public confidence  and attained great influence through  SASKATOON,   June     22.���������Rtraw-  ���������'erries have not been arriving at this  '-oint to    show to    advanatage.  and  'his more especially refers to Hatzic  ������������������"orrics     which   aro cither  green     or  soft.     We  have    been    experiencing  ���������ome trouble with some of our shipments to country points owing to the  carrying uualities.    Some of our cus-  omers  claim   that upon arrival   berries are showing considerable shrinkage, same being: shipped on" the day  received,     reaching  * destination   the  following day'. Also some of the shippers do not fill .the  baskets as they  should   be  filled.    Would state  that  the Haney berries give much    better  satisfaction    than the    Hatzic.    The  demand   for    strawberries   has" been  fairly good  and   the   wholesale price  for the present week has been around  $3.25, retailing at $4-00 per    crate.  This is    considerably lower a    price  than was prevailing last week when  the   same   berries  were   wholesaling  from  $3.75  to  $4.00  and $4.25.

After that it give?  due consideration to  replanting and  general    forest    management.    The  very  effective'results  of  its  educa  tional "^campaign    are   duo    to    the  variety  of  practical    methods    that  are   followed.     These   include   publicity work through the newspapers:  a speaker's bureau of three hundred  voluntary   workers;    travelling    lecture   cars   in  the   East   and   in   the  vinces   is making  rapid  hcuhvav a*  present.    On April  I Oth, 1021, a lre������r  planting    campaign     was     sl-n-lpd  There   arc   now   more   than    50,000  plantations  of   (rces    in    the    thro?  prairie    provinces,   and    more    Mian  50.000,000 seedlings   have  been   furnished   from   the  Dominion   Government   nursery   at   Indian-   Head,   to  prairie  farmers.    Fully'90  per cent,  of    them    have    been    successfully  grown.    A  railway car equipped as  an   auditorium   with   motion   picture  machines  visits  many  districts,  and  lecturers   explain   the   object   of   the  tree   planting  campaign.     It   is   ex  pected    thai   200   prairie   communities will bp covered before the present   tour  closes.  The primary object is to enlist the  - Th'o new Forest Fire Finder, an instrument recently  invented to locate a fire quickly. It is expected to reduce  Lhe danger and loss from fires to a minimum. The instru-  ment has been installed in the look-out towers in California  forests and a fire can be detected 50 miles away.-  structing a shelter built of trees by  showing them exactly how to proceed and supplying complete data to  ensure success.  "The economic importance of constructing windbreaks of trees." said  Mr. nc-br-.on Black, executive secretary of the Canadian Forestry As-  ������������������(-���������Malion "cannot be overstated.  Thick shelter belts are a powerful  preventive of soil drift, and of wind  damage to crops. A thick growth of  trees protects the land to a distance  equal to ten times the height of the  trees. There is also to be considered  the need of every farmer for fence  posts and fuel and small construction limber. He may very easily  and cheaply produce such necessities on his own property.  "Our tree planting campaigns are  heartily endorsed by agriculturists  and foresters'for they are thoroughly practicable. They have the finan-'  cial backing of one of the prairie  provinces.

That 1b the hljrhly  'dangerous practice of smoking in  Bleeping cars.  It) a train in which. I wai traral-  Iingthe other night from  Toronto  to Montreal. I heard a porter go up  to a berth and ask  the- occupant if  he were.smoking.   There was a very  sheepish denial, but as e matter of  fact the man wag smoking a cigarette���������not in  the smokine room, remember,   but   in   his   berth.

Tha  ���������worst offenders, ho said, are not th*  people in the ordinary berths, who  can be asked to stop, so much ao:  those who occupy compartments, and-  who can Wk "-nir doors and tell the  porter who remonstrates to go to  the devil.

With  these two production factors at a  high level aiid with a big local demand for fresh .farm .produce, the  trend of farm acreage has been "toward the smaller working unit. 1-*-*"*  acres or less, the one-man-side farm.  , The per acre capitalization going  higher, managing.'ability, not gencr-  B'ally improving, and employed labor  uawHMiiww j efficiency not all'that could be desired, are conditions that are'having a  big influence to convert many of the  larger "staple food" producing farms  into a great number of "luxury food"  producing fruit plantings, ornamental stocks, poultry ranches, ' etc., all  run on the one-man or family-labour  j cale. 'Phis small farm business will  j be profitable so long *is if does not .  overtake (he local'market for luvnrv'  food crops, such as flowers,, fruits ���������  and poultry. Thos m^M f:p-m wUh j  its more intensive culture, ������������������������������������ith. its j  higher percentage of human .labor.

'.  A smalt area farm does not- offer  sufficient room for the operation ol  the larger labour saving machines  and power, neither will il permit  such capital cost. Many products,  few machines and much human  energy is the requirement for the  small   farm.  If labour on a    farm be kept,   employed   and  moving at a speed   that  will give maximum production, some  hope  may be  entertained   for profit.  With    labour not    employed to    the  limit, all production  will  be absorbed in     maintenance;   there    will  lie  little  or nothing in  either case    or  produce that can be called profit. The  large farm,  if well  organized  as    a  producing business, offers greater opportunity of ways.and means of keeping labour    employed to the    limit.  The size of a farm, to bo profitable,  .must be determined  by its location  land the energy and ability of the in-  1 dividual   operator'.'   * No'farm   should  be so small as not to keep the operator and liis family fully, employed,  using the best tools and power, during.the    entire year.    No    individual  I should operate a farm or larger slae  than his-managing, ability warrants.  A farm business that entails too  much labour for one man and yet not  enough for two is out of balance and  not likely to be as profitable as it.  ."-should be. A farm business just  argc enough  to  kep one in an  fully  emp?oycd,  but on which the labour  of two or Ihroe men is being expended, can not be profitable, since el-  flcient. use of labour can only bo  secured by adjusting the individual  to the farm or. tho farm bi'sinoss lo  the Individual.��������� .Experimental Farm  Note.

AGRICCI/rUKAIi   INSTRUCTION*  T?*;  BRITISH COr-UMRIA  If is noteworthy that it was a citizen of British Columbia who was responsible for the passing of the Dominion Agricultural Instruction Act  in 1914, providing for the distribution of ten million dollars between  the provinces in ten years for Ihe  encouragement and advance of instruction in all lines of agriculture.  British Columbia partieipatns in this  grant to the extent of $69,109 annually. A wide field is Covered by  funds from the grant, all tending to  greater knowledge of agriculture  and to improvement in farm and  home. In 1919-20, the last year for  which a report is possible, $20,000  of the money so derived was devoted  to the advancement of agricultural  instruction in public and high schools  and for the training of teachers, and  $12,000 towards the investigation  and extension work of the University  of British Columbia. Of the balance  of $37,199, dairying and cow testing  was helped to the extent of $8,000  o.-m-i-roping lo the extent of $7,000  and agriclutural publications by  $'5,000. Contributions were also  made to tho expense of dry farm  domonsl rations, seed work, silo  demonstrations, horticultural demonstrations and- competitions, fruit  packing and pruning schools, poultry  competitions and hoys' and girls'  clubs and fairs. As is to be expected  In the fruit garden of Canada, much  attention is given to horticultural  work. This class of work consists of  personal visits to fruit growers for  'Iho giving of counsel, holding orchard demonstrations, lectures, assisting in judging at fairs, and directing experiments with spraying materials for the control of injurious insects and plant diseases. In connection with the grant alloted to agricultural education, much attention  Is given to school and home gardening and nature study. In this line of  work, valuable assistance is rendered by the district supervisors' of  agricultural instruction, who are  called upon to conduct a    two    year  A  Baltimore woman   had  her  j speech  restored when a  dentist  I traded   two of her teeth,     if--.*  jiband does not speak to tho  now.  li-J-.l*..
