BATES, Editor and Proprietor  Utf      i'JH.TM  'iH.:1 :r.a .-..rwiia.i'-.vga  FRIDAY, JULY G,  1923.  asas  ssass;  uas  CANADA'S    PROSPERITY  i  in  l  P'.i  Tlu'Ough Us or in Spite of Us?  When the war ��������� was on and this  country was puling forth every  effort., at home and overseas, to aid  the allied cause, a great spirit of  , confidence and faith, of willingness  to work, economize and sacrifice, filled every class of the community  from the highest'to the lowest.  As a result, Canada's  honourable  war record has set her    high' among  tho nations, with a place at tho Iin-  -  perial Council table   and a voice   in  international affairs'.  Canada must and will come, with  equal honor, through the throublous  times of post-war adjustment. The  only question is, will all of us help���������  or some of us hinder, by pessimism,  apathy, or class Jealousy?  "To the Canadian farmer, this  question comes with a peculiar force.  Agriculture must be the economic  balance wheel of this or any nation.  'It is an occupation where nature  herself demands energy, courage,  economy and efficiency. Those  sturdy qualitieu radiate from our  farms to industries in other wallwj  of life, where so n.uny leaders wer.o  country born and bred.   -  Tiie farm home and farm life as  the source of what has been and is  the strongest and truest in our national    character is interwoven wicii  - the history of Canada    from    its infancy. The settlers on the shores of  >   New   .Brunswick    and  Nova  Scotia.,  toiling to clear,a patch of forest and  sowing    their      grain      among   the  : stumps;   Hebert1 and. the pioneers of  , New France, fighting Indians, endur-  ������������������ ing  privation;    wrestling     merely  a'  rude, living from their.' small clearings, but full of faith,   in the future,  if not for them,'then for generations  .yet to come;"^ the men    who rescued  " Upper Canada from  the".wilderness;  the-Red River' colonists, '  who, after  . two years of��������� complete destruction of  .their crops, sent a party to the Mis-  ,   sissip'pi  for seed grain    for the next  , year and won! These men made pos-  .. sible the Canada of today.  The farmers of,'-   Canada,     ��������� then,  ��������� have a rich history and a noble tradition to live up-to.    Upon them Ca'i-  ���������ada's progress    has    always, in the*  ��������� main, depended; upon them it will'  always, in the main, depend.    <  (What, then is' necessary for the  farmer's of today? - Simply the application of those qualities'we have  referred . to���������renergy, courage, ; economy and-efficiency,- and under present-day conditions the''-return is  sure and speedy.  -A very high per-  - centage of 'farms owned by farmers  in this country have been-ecquired  and paid for in the farmer's ; own  lifetime. For the present and future  generations      there is    exactly    tho  ���������" same opporunity.      True, with each  , generation, and perhaps oftener, we"  may have to    change   our    type   of  crops to meet    changing market re-  ; quirements,. but      surely    what-is a  ��������� trifling task- compared -wi-th that of  ��������� those who    had to-   establish   themselves in a new country, create their  farm,  their- community,     their markets, and their civilization.  During the war years, the farmer,  like .most others,    became unreasonably optimistic.      As in other industries,  he over-capitalized,     tied    up  ' too much      money   in   .extravagant  buildings and expensive    machinery,  . bought, tractors to .get the crops in  more  quickly  and    easily,     without  considering whether the actual earning power of these    warranted    the  -investment.      With    the depression,  which has followed, this over-expen-  sion has been a serious    burden and  has shaken the .faith of some in ultimate success.  We must get back the indomitable  courage and untiring effort of Canada's early days. The farmer must  remember that in the last analysis  he is infinitely better off than the  wage-earner of the city. True, hi3  cash income may sometimes be small,  but he can, at the very worst, gain  his living from the soil, while in the  city the larger wage soon melts' away  in paying for things which on the  farm involves no cash outlay. The  farm products are necessities of life  and must always command a market  the week, and this coming after the  recent heiavy rains has' put the soil in  a condition that it ban not been in at  this time of the year since 19.10;  the farmers arc consequently very  jubilant and if optimism could pay  debts tho farmers of Sou!hem Alberta could by next fall-. cancel our  National  Debt." '"  "HOW CAN I   KEEP MY  ROYS ON THE  FARM?''  "Year by year, tho rural life of the  west is suffering from tho loss of its  young men and women ��������� because the  farming communities are allowed t.o  become uninteresting,'! says Mr. Ii.  Curie, Secretary of the Manitoba  Board, Retail Merchants' Association  of Canada, in a recent article.  This' is true, not only of the west  but of every other part of Canada.  Tho'groatly extended educational"  opportunities enjoyed by the young  generation of today have developed  a variety of interests that would,  and frequently does, amaze our  grandfathers.  Those hardy ancestors of pioneer  days had but little .leisure to hung  heavily on their hands, and when  they did indulge in a pleasure trip  to town, the long, hard journey  over hard roads was generally justified by business motives a.s well.'  Hut new machinery and methods  have changed all that.  The young men and women on th���������������  farm today have leisure and they demand leisure interests'. If these interests' are lacking in the community  where they live, or if they cannot  conveniently reach a community  centre where ' these interests a.va  available, the young folks "leave the  farm and seek a. more diversified life  in the larger centres.  Then comes the farmer's cry,  "How can I keep my boys on the  farm?"  This is a vital problem with every  farmer and even more so with every  mother on the farm. To the old  folks the farm is home and often it  is a family heritage,- " built for succeeding generations. But this fact  alone will not keep the children on  the land, rnd so, over and over again  the old tragedy is enacted, the heritage is renounced, "the children go,  the family is broken up, and the ruv-  ral communities' lose the very life  blood of their existence.  Then, when one asks,- "How's business?"    the    answer    will    be,    "Tt  isn't like it used to be, because those  who made  business have gone."  -    But this  condition  does not exist  in  communities where  the community as a whole has been sold on motor  transportation.      In    fact, it is true  that you can measure the prosperity  of any communtiy by the extent of its  transportation facilities.    For,    good  .transportation  extends  the  boundaries of the community, and,the sons  and daughters of    the    farmer   who  lives ten miles from the communitj  church, but who have a car, can participate in the    entertainments    and  social  functions' just as conveniently  as those who live    only    half a mile  away.    And it is    just    convenience  such as this more than anything else  that will keep' the young-folks on the  farm.  No city family nowadays expects  the children to remain around the  fireside night after night or to limit  their pleasures to an occasional visit  among the neighbors. That would  be unreasonable in view of the plenitudes of good wholesome recreation  that they can enjoy such as theatres,  parties, night schools, church and  ) Sunday school activities, social functions, lectures, movies, dances and so  forth, to say nothing of the conveniences of libraries and fraternal and  athletic clubs.  ICity dwellers accept these things  as part of their everyday life, and  would find life mighty monbtonou.'.  without them.  And therein lies your answer to  the farmer's cry, "How.can I keep  my boys on the farm?"  It isn't the farm work that drives  tho boys to the city and makes 'hired  labor hard to keep. It's the deadly  monotony of farm life after working  hours, the long uninteresting, un  eventful    evenings,    the    humdrum  every t'ime that a farmer crias   'How  can 1 keep my boys on the iarin?" he  :s shouting aloud his need for motor  transportation.  How much Henry Ford, has contributed to the contentment of tlie  young folks'on the farm would be  difficult to estimate.  But money alone doesnlt generate  happiness for the farmer and his'  family. ( They crave social diversion  and changed surroundngs and travel  and so tho farmer buys his Ford car  and a new world is opened up '.o  them.  Within a week, the Ford that waft  bought primarily as' a pleasure car  suddenly becomes exceedingly useful  as a business car as well and fast  trips to town for supplies which are  needed in a hurry, are no longer a'  day's job in themselves.  Mother and the girls' learn lo drive  and in a week or two have an Imposing schedule of daytime trips to  town or to visit {he neighbors while  the men-folk arc at work.  Within a few months, the Ford has  changed the outlook of tho whole  family and has so thoroughly established itself as a necessity that to  revert to the old motorlcss days  again is simply unthinkable.  And so the genius of Henry Ford  smooths out the trials and difficulties of farm life, lifts' up the heavy  burden from th'e shoulders of tho  farmer and brings leisure and happiness and contentment to every individual in this great producinig class  upon whom the welfare of the nation  so closely depends'.  ;   The Voice is the Soul of Telephoning  When you complete a long distance conversation you experience a satisfaction* that does not  follow under other circumstances.

Farm boys and girls are just like  city boys and girls.  They like company and parties  and theatres and civic problems and  every other single thing that goes  to make up a complete life.  The one way to keep them on the  farm is to make those things available to them.;  And those things are available to  the farm family that can step into  its car and drive down' the road to  the community centre that is the  heart of the social life of the district.  There is an urgent need for more  cars on the farm. It is being reiterated every day in every rural community in every part of Canada. For  Few-keepers of poultry realize the  full extent of the injury done by red  mites. With the warmer weather'the  mites flourish and multiply until  the poultry buildings become infested with these pests, and the harm is  done.  The red mite is the most dangerous of the external parasites that attack fowl, and if allowed to spread  unchecked far worse losses might  accrue  than  breeders ��������� imagine.  These parasites are most injurious,  to young chickens and brood heris.-  The persistent loss of young- chicks  and the failure of hens to bring off  good hatches are often due to the  irritation caused by the unsuspected  presence of the red mite. _;  ��������� The attacks of hoards of mites  weaken and predispose- the fowl to  many maladies, as well as materially  reducing the yield of eggs.  Some prominent scientists are convinced ,that the bite of the mite i-e  venomous and that even worse disaster might result than merely weakened .condition brought about by the  slicking of the blood. ,  Many people are unaware of the  presence or appearance of the mite.  They may not visit their poultry  houses at night, and the parasite-is  nocturnal; it dislikes light. The  adult is seldom found on the fowl in  the day time, but emerges from the  deposits of filth and dirt that have  accumulated in the cracks and  crevices of the house and fittings,  and climbs to his roosting victim to  gorge himself with blood.  The presence of the mite may be  readily detected by a close examina':  tion of the roosts and nest boxes. Th3  practice of running one's hand along  underneath the roosts once a day is  advisable, as some parasites will adhere and can be seen and felt distinctly.  Immediate  extermination   is'vitai  and ste.ns should be    taken at once  to rid the    building of all    material  that will harbour    and    protect the  mites. Fittings should be    removed,  dirt and filth brushed    out    with a  stiff broom,    and the    inside of the  building   and   furniture     thoroughly  saturated with a powerful germicide  by means of a.spray pump or brush.  ���������    Some of the    coal, tar by-product  used as sprays    vary    in* "efficiency  when used   in   economical     strength  solutions;   but  where   the  mites  are  evident in small batches and only in  places, these insecticides may be applied with a brush in their full commercial-strength, i-  A five or ten per cent, solution    of  carbolic acid is    very    effective, but  not without danger as a    spray,    lt  can  however    be    recommended    it  proper precautions are taken.

As these berries were intended for  th3 prairie holiday trade, and any  delay in transit would entail .serious  loss lii marketing, we wired the Supt  of ibo Dominion Express Co., Va.i-  eouvp", <���������!'

Latei  in tho day we were informed tin'  only two of them were on No 4, t.'-.o  other (No. 5V,2'A) being held for tho  evening train.  We consider that the Vancouver  Island shippers have a claim against  the Company for'any loos caused h/  their failure to forward  this car.  The geographical pt. si linn of  Vancouver Island, and the fuel Hint  there is no Dominion Express; service by carlots from there, is sufficient .handicap in shipping perishables to the prairie market without  being subject to further disabilities.  In other years we have seen as  many as six cars of berries on one  passenger train.  QUESTIONS AM) ANKIVKKH  FOR Tlltf O'.TlKrtl'RH MAN  my  li-of.

In seeking for easy remedies, too  many of us overlook the fact  -that the greatest remedy is honest, hard work faithfully and  intelligently performed, accompanied  by  old-fashioned  thrift.  It takes time, it takes patience,  it takes grit. But every Canadian  knows in his heart that Canada  is coming through all right.  Our Experience Proves It  Look back over the path Canada  has trod. The French Colonists,  cut off from civilization by 3,000  miles of sea, faced a continent���������  a wilderness���������without the aid of  even a blazed trail. They had  to fight savages, frosts, scurvy,  loneliness and starvation.  The United Empire Loyalists  subdued an unbroken forest in  one generation, growing their  first wheat amid the stumps and  snags of the new clearing.  The Selkirk settlers came to  Manitoba when the prairie was a  buffalo pasture, and grew wheat  where none had grown before  and where those who knew the  country best at that time said  wheat would never grow. Today the Canadian prairies grow,  the finest wheat in the world.  In proportion to population Canada  stands to-day among the wealthiest  nations in the world, with average  savings on deposit per family of  $800. Canada's foreign trade per head  of population stands amongst the  highest of the commercial nations,  being $192 per capita in 1922-23, as  compared with $135 in 1913-14, the  "peak" year before the war.  New Opportunities for  Canada  In Canada, although prices in the  world markets fell below war level,  out farmer* reaped last autumn the  largest grain crop/ in Canadian history, and Canada became the world's  largest exporter of wheat, thus in  targe measure making up for lower  prices.  Last year, Great Britain, after an  agitation extending over thirty years,  removed the embargo on Canadian  cattle, and a profitable and practically  unlimited trade is opening up for  Canadian stockers and feeders.

Not for several years at least,  have'general crop conditions through  out Matsqui municipality appeared  as favorable as they are at present.  In every class of crop, as a result of  the decidedly favorable weather experienced this' spring, there has boon  an exceptional growth, and there is  every indication of at least a near-  record crop, and possibly a record,  one.  With the hay crop, cutting will  be general about tho end of the week  which is at least five or six days  earlier than the average. A crop of  about three and one-half tons to tlie  acre is expected to' bo the average,  while in some cases the yield will  probably go over four. The price,  however, is expected to bo very low.  Oats are also in splendid condition  '.-ind have every indication of a bumper yield. ln somo_instances they  arc already heading out.  Potatoes are also coming along  fine and there is every prospect of a  large crop. Early spuds have also  yielded remarkably well.

The most i'avot  od route for both north ��������� and southbound traffic" appears to-be tlie  Hall's Prairie, and just so, for this  road, with the ' exception of a few  chuck-holes', is in good condition  for the entire distance. A few loads  of gravel dumped'at the north side  of the Hazelmere hill "would probably eliminate the holes,.and with these  filled there could* not possibly be  any caus'e for complaiint.  Through the use of the Hall's  Prairie, two additional miles of pav*  ing are available on the recently completed section of the Highway. The  turn of the Hall's Prairie is made at  Hazelmere and-the North Bluff road  is followed, instead of the Campbell  River.,  The North Bluff, while-a trifle  narrow, is"in good shape.  A duty the automobile clubs might  well carry out would lie to install ' a  larger sign, or even station- a" man  at the corner of the old G.-'N. right  of way, which is used by northbound  traffic as a detour around the Hazel-  mere Hill. While'-there is a sign  at this point at present, it is; much'  too small and carries too little information to be of much value to  unfamiliar motorists. Other signs  might also be erected at the corner  of the new McLellan and the Hall's  Prairie road, so as to direct traffic  back to the Highway at Cloverdale.������������������  Columbian.  .

At  this price they cleaned up quickly  and a greatly increased demand resulted .from country points. Pro  tests from shippers against such low  prices', as well as a strong desire  from the jobbers led .to a meeting  recently of the repesentatives of tiie  Mutual and Growers ' Sales Agency  Brokers at this office. It was a-  greed at this meeting that price's  should be advanced, and on Monday  of "this week all wholesale houses on  the prairies were advised of a 50  cents raise.- ������-:'.-  Poor Road Building,  The Brazilian Government is erect-  ting an,experiment station for combustibles and mine products and will  extensively test coal produced in  that country.

One would almost  suppose that the men who build our  roads did but seldom-give the motorist any consideration. At this time  ���������of the year there are all kinds of  loose gravel on the roads���������or should  one say loose rockn, and round onus  at that. The expense of putting this  kind of j-oad material down must be  enormous, as tho rocks will eventually find their way to the ditches.  An example of very poor road  work can be seen on the Riverside-'  Huntingdon road on the two corners  between Matsqui and Clayburn, and  should an accident occur at either  .of these corners it is the belief'ol  some legal opinion that the. municipality could be held responsible for  damages.  In,the material that was put down  at these two points very large round  rocks were used and in one case the  corner slope is put in the wrong way.  Who is responsible for this kind of  roadbuilding, UiiH paper is not prepared to state; but to a stranger going over tho road for the first time  it is-absolutely dangerous.  This paper calls tho attention of  the Matsqui council, to the two corners and will dare to express the opinion that an improvement should be  i. ade at an early date.  Mr.   and  Mrs.   F.  J.  R.
