R. DesMAZES  ABBOTSFORD AND WHATCOM RO AD  Farmers 1913  Phone 16  CLAYBURN  Motherwell Talks on  Experimental Farms  Hon.  W R.  Motherwell   (Minister  of Agriculture),    said.'-     In reading  the discussions in    Hansard  number of  for a  years before I had the  honour, to come before this House, I  noticed there was always a long and  interesting discussion surrounding  the appropriation with respect to experimental farms. . Last year, it will  be recalled that we had the same experience, and I.remember that there  was a number of features around  which the discussion centered. For  instance, what was to be the future  of our experimental farm system?  . Had it_.any new objective? . -.Were,  we going to establish any new experimental farms? There were a number  of other questions of that nature.  I think the discussion at this time  might be facilitated and, perhaps,  expedited if I, made a brief statement  with respect to our objective as regards the future of these farms.  Since the House    prorogued    1 .jt  summer, I took the opportuity cf visiting a large number    of    these    institutions between here and the Pacific coast and also    within the province of Quebec.     Time    would not  permit my extending that visitation  to the Maritime provinces but outside of that I visited nearly all    rho  experimental farms.    The policy that  I partially announced last year was,  that before we    spend    very   much  more money in the establishment of  new experimental farms, the government would be well advised to take  cars of the existing  farms.    During  the last eight years, four of them being the war period and    four since,  our experimental farms, of necessity,  had more or less'to mark time. That  was due to no one's fault; but as a  matter of fact, while that is so, the  very policy of standing still meant,  in some respects, as regards some of  the farms, a going back.    No growing institution can    stand still;     it  must either go forward or go back.  Having regard to that fact and having visited many of the farms, I am  more than  over convinced  that our  policy should be to put    the present  twenty-two 'branches,   including   the  central farm, in a state of good    repair - and efficiency    before    we extend this ayBtem to a larger number  of farms,    particularly in    view    of  the fact that we have not at our disposal sufficient money to do both at  the same time.  As regards, some of tho older  farms concerning which there was a  good deal of discussion last session,  particularly with respect to those  on the prairie and the initial four  farms', that is the Nappan farm, the  Brandon farm, the Indian Head farm  and the Agassiz farm "in British Columbia, which four farms with the  central farm constituted the original  unit, some of these farms, as well as  some additional ones, have largely  exhausted their experimental work  in connection with cultural methods.  When I say largely, I do not menu  entirely. For instance, the farms at  Indian ��������� Head. and Brandon have  pretty well demonstrated to those  areas on the prairies just what kind  of cultural methods are necessary to  get the best results'. Forty years  the prairies    were a    secret to  ago,  (Continued on Page Three)  HOSPITAL IS ENTIRELY  FREE OF DERT  The annual meeting of the Matsqui  Sumas-Abbotsford   Hospital   Society  was held in    the    Masonic   Hall    on  Monday evening with a splendid attendance.    Retiring     directors     for  1923   included ,'Messrs  T.  E.  Shone,  G. F. Pratt and J. W. Winson. Messrs. A. McCallum, W.  Coutts and T.  Bennett were re-elected, H. Peck, T.  F. Seldon and Mr. A.    George were  also elected In the place of those retired.,  Mr. Thomas' H. Ingram was ���������re-appointed as auditor of the - ensuing  year. Hearty votes of thanks from  the meeting were tendered the matron, Miss K. Campbell, and the hospital staff; the Board of Directors  and'the secretary-treasurer."'  The president of the    Board, Mr.  R. L. McCulloch thanked the W. A.  of the hospital for    their    valuable  assistance, and voiced    the    opinion  that it would be difficultto carry on  without the help given by the ladies.  Mr. McCulloch said    that the hospital was now free of debt, and was  by far the largest effort of the   community and a very valuable asset to  tho entire district.   The upkeep   and  running expenses of the    institution  can only be met by the continued effort of the citizens throughout    the  whole community.    The government  grant of liquor profits from Matsqui  lias   materially  assisted   financially;  but through a new act now in force,  the grant is no longer    based on    a  population scale, but is    sent direct  to the hospital on a patient basis, the  sum being 25 cents per hospital day.  The gross income' from all sources in  cash and kind was $30,573.77,    the  total expenditure $28,610.46.  During the period from April,  when the hospital was opened, until  December 31st, the total number of  days' treatment given was 1674; the  per capita cost was $3.70 per day,  the per capita income from patients  was approximately $2.75 per day  thus showing a direct loss of 95  cents per day, against which ia the  capita grant, liquor profits and other sources of revenue. Since the  opening of the hospital,. 162 patients have been admitted, of this.  number 155 were discharged, 3  died, and four were carried over to  January 1st, 1923.  The work of laying out and beautifying the grounds surrounding the  hospital, was left in the hands of the  board, who will take immediate steps  to have the necessary improvements  done at an early date. It was also  left to the directors to recompense  the secretary-treasurer, Mr. T. Bennett, for his faithful services during  the year.  Mr. N. Hill, chairman of the management committee gave a pleasing  report and spoke in the highest  terms' of the hospital staff and the  treatment given the patients.  Representatives from various organizations on the hospital board include: government, F. J. R. Whitchelo, James Higginson; Matsqui  Municipality, 'Mr. Mutch; W. A. of  the Hospital; Mrs. H. Fraser, Mrs. R.  H. Eby. Although invited to do so  Sumas Municipality has not as yet  appointed a director on the board.  The weekly danco held every Saturday-evening is.'rapidly becoming  very popular, the last one,being the  best up to now. The) work of organizing these dances' has been largely  in the hands of Mr. Sam Brown, to  whom much thanks is due for his efforts; also to Mr. Harvey and Mr.  Joffery who have giyen their kindly  assistance. ; ,;  The football games of the Fraser  Valley League'are to'be resumed iG-  day. Clayburn will play at Langlcy,  and Fernridge at Mission, games to  start at' 3:30 p. ra.'- Should' this  game be a win or draw for Clayburn  they will he entitled to the League  Cup, and should they; lose the game.'  they have yet to play Mission for a  ti������.  The Clayburn Athletic Association, are planning ' another of their  popular concerts for' March "10th,  when a first class play entitled "0.\,  Susannah!" will be played at Clayburn by the ' Ridgedale Dramatic  Society.  Trout season opened on' Tuesday  and the usual tourist with hook and  line is visiting the district.  HOSPITAL IS  A VERY  VALUABLE ASSET  That the Matsqui-Sumas-Abbots-  ford Hospital is meeting .with success as an institution "was plainly evidenced by the general. report published and.given^at-the annual meeting of the society-last^-Monday- evening.  The hospital has a capacity of- fifteen beds and patients are admitted  from all districts, providing always  that they be attended by a B. C. Medical practitioner.  The appeals' from time to tinie to  the public for donations and assistance for the rospital has been met  with generosity, which is gracefully  acknowledged by the management  and directors, who trust that this  kindness' will be continued. Patients  treated since the opening of the hospital last April from the various districts include, Matsqui Municipality,  76; Sumas Municipality, 26; -Lang-  ley Municipality, 13; Surrey Municipality, 3; Abbotsford; 35; Chilliwack, 1 ; Vancouver, 3; Maple Falls,  Wash.,   (Cultus' Lake)   5.  By the payment of $100.00 or  more, persons or associations become  life members of the hospital association.  Ridgedale News  In spite of the    condition    of the  roads and other    counter-attractions  a large  crowd     attended  the  whist  drive and dance at Ridgedale Hall,  on Friday, February 23rd. Mrs.  Rottluff, Miss Farr and Miss Smith  were responsible for the. success of  .the evening. First prizes for court  whist were won by Miss Anderson  and Mr. Farr, while consolation  prizes were awarded to Miss Mabel  Beharrell and Mr. Faulkner. After  refreshments had been served,  dancing was enjoyed until an early  hour, Miss Anderson and Miss Lock-  hart supplying the music.   -  Among those present were: Mr.  and Mrs'.

Susannah!"  POPLAR LOCALS  On Friday evening last Mr. Chas.  Good of Lhe Provincial Poultry Department visited Poplar and gave an  instructive lecture, speaking particularly to the beginner in " poultry.  There was a somewhat small attendance, but all were very interested  and enthusiastic.  On Wednesday evening the Community Association held their "Hard  Times" dance, and in spite of the  bad condition of the roads tnere was  a good crowd. A very enjoyable  time was spent, music being supplied  by the Good Times Orchestra. Prizes  were won for costumes by: lady's,  Mrs. Dan Coombs (an entire gunny-  sack costume); gent's, Mr. Brown  Clearbrook( dressed as a hard times  tramp). Financially the evening  was not a great success as unnecessary expenses had to be met on account of postponing the dance when  the severe weather prevailed.  On Friday evening next the regular monthly community meeting will  be held in the hall. This will be followed by a lecturer on the raising  and marketing of sraalL fruits, by  Mr. H. C. Green on market gardening.  ABBOTSFORD DEFEATS  MISSION  AT BASKET HALT;  Many people are interested in the  associated news service supplied    by  W. J. Gray.

J. A. BATES, Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY,'MARCH 2,  1923".  Ex-Attorncy-General Farris certainly gave the new provincial party  ���������an awful slam at Nanaimo last week  when ho called it., tlie "Gold Braid  Party of Shaughnessy Heights." At  .first ono would say that it was just a  sarcastic remark, but on thinking it  over and going carefully into the  matter it will be found' most probably a nail in the coffin of B. C.'S  third parly. It conveys a lot does it.  not? It creates a feeling that one  must investigate the reason for stigmatizing tho now party with such, a  name. "Gold Braid," why the name?  What do the Heights tell an ordinary  voter of B. C? With Shaughnessy bo-  fore "Heights" there is no mistaking  what Mr. Farris meant. What 'effect will it have on the ordinary everyday voter of the city of Vancouver, who is'struggling for a meagr-2  existence?  Premier Oliver returns to B. C.  all tuckered out from his' trip to the  east. The question now is what  policy will he adopt in regard to the  freight rates and the treatment he  has received. The daily papers announce that he was talking about  having the province separate from  tlie rest of the Dominion���������that is,  breaking away ��������� from Confederation.  AVe do not think that Premier Oliver  ���������has any such idea,-as' he does not be-;  lievc the people of B.- C. would for a  moment entertain it. It is the- one  thing to fight for better terms and  better freight rates and another thing  to say we want to go back to the days  when B. C. was a Crown Colony. He  may have hinted it during the heat of  an argument, but "if he has said anything of the kind, it surely is not his  can_id convictioh'of the proper method of retaliation.

ARK NEWS PAPERS  UNRELIABLE'  REDISTRIBUTION  The proposal that    under    redistribution there should.be a readjustment between the ridings of Coiribx-  Alberni and Nanaimo is not one that,  will  find  any substantial  favor    on  Vancouver Island.    It    will, we believe;   be   particularly   objectionable  to the people of Comox-Albenii rid-  cing.    That area    is a    large ono, is  composed of    scattered    settlements,  and, while it is possible a better political division of the Island might be  made   for- electoral     purposes,     any  methods so far proposed    have    not.  met with  favor.     Vancouver  Island,  on the basis of its'    present, population, is entitled  to  three    members.  We can hope to    gain    no    addition  through   redistribution.     The   member to be added to the    representation  for British  Columbia    logically  belongs    to    the    Vancouver    area,-  where tlie greatest    increase in population has taken place.      ;      '  As matters stand on the "Island  there is satisfaction with 'the -present delimitation of electoral, boundaries"; and; we see no gain-that can  be effected by any readjustment as  as between the Comox-Alberni and  the Nanaimo ridings. This is a  matter of leaving well enough alone.  Party-politics may see wisdom in' a  change, but so long as the pecplr*  are satisfied cwith their representation the political boundaries' of the  -voting areas should be left undisturbed. By the time of the next  census, when it is hoped there will  be a substantial growth in the papulation of Vancouver Island, it-will  be time enough to consider a readjustment in the boundaries of the  ridings in view Of the added representation which we my expect In the  Federal Parliament.���������-Colonist.  CO-OPERATIVE MARKETING  It will be in a position to eliminate price cutting and consignment  \and to effect a proper distribution of  our fruit- and places power in the  growers' hands, to accomplish what  the shippers no matter how much  they would like to, are unable to  accomplish for the growers.  It has the universal backing of  banking institutions, business houses  and merchants of the different districts, and  public opinion  at largo.  It also has the hearty co-operation  of leading financial men of tho province, which Is based on the truth Unit  prosperous times for rural districts  spell 'prosperous times for the cities.  Vancouver business men are especially interested in our success', as  they feel a large proportion of our  surplus must eventually reach an export market, by shipment through  their port.  The co-operative movement lias  the backing, of. our provincial government and the principles have been  endorsed in annual convention by the  British Columbia Fruit Growers'  Association.  It has the endorsement of the  [Wholesale Fruit Jobbers' Association of the Prairie Provinces.

Every so often some soIE-  rightoous individual with an ingrowing disDOSition rears back on his  hind legs and emits' a doleful howl  anent tho unreliability of the press.  Inadvertent publication of any  news story not strictly 6onformin._  to' the facts invariably is the signal  for a sweeping condemnation often  by those who know better.  In virtually every big city of the  country men and women of more or  less standing in the community are  prone to assume a smug air of wisdom  and  to assert with  conviction:  "You can't believe a word you  read in the newspapers."  It has come to be quite tho common thing with these volunteer critics .not only to discharge the press  in so far as concerns authenticity of  its news, but likewise to impugn tho  motives of newspaper managements-.  - The most charitable thing they  find to say concerning the character  of newspaper writers In general is:  "Oh, well; you can't blame the  reports so much, they have to write  what they're told by the men in  charge."  If statements of this sort "came  from ignorant people and reflected  only the attitude of the uninformed  it would be folly to take cognizance  of them. Unfortunately this' is not  the caso.  Bankers lawyers, brokers, merchants, railroad officials, politicians,  society women, ministers of the gospel, steamboat officials, and others  who pride themselves on their probity and personal integrity, too fre-  quenly do not hesitate .to' lie incoii-  ���������Linently to the newspapers.  A rumor reaches a newspaper office to the effect that a bank merger  is to be consummated. A reporter  :s' sent to ascertain the facts. Does  the bank president admit the truth  of the rumor but ask that, for business reasons, the matter be not made  public for a few days? Pie does not.  Te tells the reporter there is no  truth in the rumor. "A few days  later the deal goes through and--the  newspaper knows' the bank president  lied.  A public official grants an interview in which he make's certain  statements. The next day political  or other pressure is brought to bear.  Does he come 'out in the open aud  admit his mistake or his change' of  heart? He does not. He promptly:  repudiates  the interview.-of.; .the'.day'  before and���������the reporter knows   he  lied:.

The following week the announcement is  made and���������-the society editor knows  ���������the women has prevaricated.  ,  So it goes on down the line. People who would not think of deceiv-;  ing business associates, people who  would scorn to resort to untruth or  subterfuge in ordinary affairs, men  and women whose word -literally is  as good as their bond in financial  matters-���������these are the people for  the most part, who have no compunction of conscience about deliberately lying to -a newspaper: representative. ..'.���������'������������������'..-  The remarkable feature of the situation is that the very persons who  so carelessly handle"* the truth when  talking to a newspaper representative are the first to raise a howl  over the unreliability and inaccuracy of the press.  Every newspaper reporter in the  country knows his job is not worth  two cents if he is detected intential-  ly misrepresenting .facts'-or misquoting what lias been do Id to him. His  job is to tell the'truth.of what he  sees and hears and in ninety-nine  cases out of every hundred he can be  depended upon to get things straight  and to write exactly what has been  to him.  sufior firs' 'losses to build' fire statics' and supply the equipment, or  those who aro held up,- beaten and  robbed, to maintain the police department. Unlike any other cutar-  prise, a hospital has to take the  risk of making a bad debt. It cannot throw, the sick out on the street  when his money is' exhausted. Every  self-supporting man and woman in  the community should contribute  his or her share towards the maintenance of the hospital, not only as a  public duty, but because' some day  one or another of them-will require  treatment within its walls. If they  do not require it, they are that much  bettor off than those who do.  The trend of'present day thought  ���������is towards the    concentration of hospitals,   wherever     practicable,     and  thoir  full  and  complete''   ownership  by   the" community  which  they seek  to serve.    Concentration means more  economical ,     management,    '  better  equipment and service,. while public  ownership on the other hand implies,  and cannot fail  to realize, a    more  complete fulfillment of the high and  noble mission of the hospital,      the  care and  cure of    those    fortunate  enough to come within the scope of  its usefulness.  ������S!&mxs^tiS!gseS!tast^sanazsBaa3SMsmesssiaaBBe������ ���������:"***���������  SAPIROGRAMS  Long "dis tance telephone service -'will 'con-  tact you wilh-any desired City.within hundreds  of miles.

This, in a measure, is due to the fact that so few  hospitals have really taken the  public into their confidence. The  practise of requiring those who are  sick and use tho hospital to pay for  the hospital building and equipment  is wrong. It would be just as reasonable to require   only   those   who  The fault of many young athletes  in that they fall for the applause from  the gallery. This is perhaps one of  the biggest temptations a young athlete of promise has to face. It is a  fatal error. History is full of stories  of men in all walks of life, who fell  before the applause of the fickle  crpwd. A ; striking modern illustration-': of the folly of "playing r to the  gallery" is found in Babe Ruth. Once  ..the idol"-of'the. fans, he allowed the  clamor of the crowd to over-rule  his reason, with the result that they  turned upon him and mocked. The  lad who plays to the gallery plays  for himself and, for his own aggrandizement. The result is, no matter  how' skilful a player he may be, ho  loses 'all value to his team." Team  play is'the'secret of success in any  game. Play for the team and in  serving the team you will profit  most. Ignore the advice flung from  the -bleachers and gallery. Listen  only to your captain and manager;  They know- what the public does not  know, the endurance, skill and peculiarities of each player, and also  the team's plan of attack.  Caring; for Bruises.  Watch your signals. Never b<; so  absorbed in the comments of the  spectators as to miss a signal.

Accidents  will occur in the most carefully conducted games. Never be fooled and  ignore these hurts. A simple bruise  from a fall on a dirty floor may  cause considerable and serious harm  if ignored. The simple preventative  which should be handy in every  gymnasium and at. every game is  iodino. When you notice a lump  develop in tlie groin, or under the  arm, look for a wound on the leg or  foot, or arm or hand. Mother Nature is issuing a warning through  the. glands that there is poisoning,  and you have an infected sore requiring attention.  Knowledge of First Aid  Every athlete should have a thorough knowledge of first aid. This is  a valuable education to anyone but  doubly so to the athlete who, at any  moment, is liable to come into contact with injuries requiring skilful attention. Many a simple fracture has  become a serious wound with ignorant  handling. Many an . athlete could  have been spared    much pain    had  STUART MOTORS  Chevrolet and Nash Agents  Mission City, B.

Candies will never help you to win  games. Keep your teeth clean. Poor  teeth mean a'poor digestion, and no  athlete can play his best if he is in  poor health.  ��������� Again, play the game for sport,  and when playing, play the game.���������  Herbert Fiddes' (Director, Kamloops  Junior Brotherhood).

We have blundered on from year to year until  many of us have found out something, about that great country. The  experiments and experience of individuals plus, the experiments and experience of those experimental farms  have blazed the way towards tho  reasonably good cultural methods.  So, to-day, in the light of present  conditions, i������i the light of world demand for high class products, ������espoc-  ially live stock products, it is well at  this time to extend, the activities of  those, farms  more  than  even' before  in the  direction of. live    stock  production.    In the history of Canadian  agriculture,  there was never a time  when, the export demand    for    livestock   products  was'    more   difficult  and hard to please than it is at tho  present time. We are competing with  highly,    developed  and      specialized  countries in the production of practically: all our meat..and    dairy products.    There is one    staple article  upon which I think Canada has    the  edge upon the rest of the world, and  that is the production of hard wheat.  That wo get by nature,    duo    to v.c  particular ability on the part of our--  solves,, but to the soil    and climatic  conditions of tho West. With respect,  however to live stock and live stock  products, we have to    competcv.wilh  specialized  countries    such  as  Don-  mark, Ireland, New Zealand, Australia, Argentina and    other countries.  Consequently, at this' time,,   the activities of, especially, the older    experimental  farms should  be  extended in the direction of more attention  to live stock..- I think the time   has  come  when  we should    make these  farms largely livestock breeding do-  pots, so that the adjoining territory  may be more conveniently, supplied  with breeding stock from those centres. Possibly, at times, one might be  able  to. establish regular    sales    of  live stock" at those centres to which  breeders' could come in order to secure their requirements.  In visiting, the farms in British  Columbia, I found, of course, an entirely different condition of affairs.  While they are- interested in livestock, they are primarily interested  in dairying, poultry raising and fruit  growing. I did not visit the.farm at  Invermere,. although it was my intention to do so. It is not very easy  to get at, and a good deal of time ,is  required, to give it the. attention it  should receive:. Possibly, at some  subsequent date I may be able to  visit that .farm. But I visited the  farm at Summerland. on Okanagan  lake, and there I found the question of irrigation was one of the uppermost problems'. They had difficulty in regard to the supply or.  water. They were "endeavouring to  irrigate without, the necessary available supply of water, and that question confronted, not only the experimental farm, but many private  farms..throughout that district. Then  there were the questions' of  fruit, growing, of cover crop, of extending the, area to be devoted to  farming, of what manurial agency  should be supplied to the land there,  of raising the.necessary livestock. I  found that one of the problems, a  problem which may sound strange  to prairie farmers, was to get the  necessary quantity of straw to supply bedding to their livestosk, two  carloads of which they usually fattened .during the winter months..  Straw cost them from, sixteen dollars a ton laid down at Summerland,  and to buy manure from the livestock yards at .Calgary would cost  them six or seven dollars a ton, so  there they w'ere,confronted with the  difficulty of growing livestock on an  experimental farm in that irrigation  area. Notwithstanding that, however, they have found it profitable  to fatten livestock every winter.  Even; at the expense of./buying dear  straw-, they found that more economical than not to have-any .livestock  and have to buy manure from the  stock-yards at Calgary.  Going further to the West, visiting one of the old initial farms, the  Agassiz farm, we found conditions  there, from an artistic and a, horticultural standpoint, particularly interesting. It was like an old-established farm in some of the more  beautiful parts in old England. The  shrubbery and trees resembled the  old country plantations because op  their variety and luxuriance.  We found that dairying and poultry raising were given exceptional  attention there, and I ran across tho  cow that subsequently proved to be  the world-beater in the matter of  producing butter fat. This particular Holstein cow was' about half  way through her twelve months'  period of test, and at that time, while  not making a record with respect to  milk production, she promised ',6 be  a record maker and breaker with  respect to butter fat. The end -if  the twelve months' period with res  pect to that cow showed a test for  the twelve months of 1345 pounds  of butter fat, which is equivalent to  1683  pounds of    butter.      This    is  the largest amount, of butter fat and  butter produced by any single cow  we. know of in the entire world. .This  shows what British Columbia can do  in dairying because it would bo impossible for any cow to make such  a favourable record if the natural  conditions were not. propitious.  Last year ,1 tentatively intimated  that 1 should like to carry ,out whai  seemed to. be the policy of my predecessor in regard to the location of  an experimental farm on the Canadian National lino some where-between Prince Rupert and Fort  George. AVe found a number oi  localities suitable for such institutions'; and in my opinion, when that  part of the country is supplied in this  respect, it should really have two  farms to meet- the situation. However, there, may he a difference^ of  opinion with regard to that. ..After,  returning to Ottawa an.l getting  down to preparation of these estimates, however, I found thai for another year or two wo should have  to abandoning the prospect of* establishing a new farm in that district.  MASH   WILL  NOT  INCREASE  PRODUCTION OF EGGS  B. O. CHAPTER ELECTS  OFFICERS FOR YEAR  NEW CO-OPERATIVE  UNION IN OKANAGAN  Lately the theory has been advanced that yea3t, because it was  . high  in vitamincs, might prove particularly helpful in feeding laying hens  to  increase egg    production.       With  a  viow  of  testing  out this' theory,;   u  number  of     experiments   in     which  yeast  was  fed  were carried  out.'  ,'ln  the  first experiment, the yeast  was dissolved in warm water, -added  to the mash and allow.ed.to stand for  ���������24  hours in order to allow; the full  effect of the yeast to become absorbed by the mash. " _*6r a while    the  hens  ate ,this  mixture  fairly  freely,  and a slight increase in egg production  was noticed      But    apparently  the birds soon tired of it. and^grad-  ually refused to" cat. Later this was;  followed  by. a decrease in  egg production and    the    morality in ,   the  pons  was  noticeable higher than  in  the  ones  not receiving    the.    yeast.  However  it ;is  thought that .the increased morality. was  due ��������� primarily  to-changes occurring in.    the.   mash  r while it was held for 24 hours', -previous to feeding rather to the .yeast  itself. ���������"'���������' -'"' ' '" -.  The moist mixture -was eventual;  ���������ly discontinued "and the pens, put oil  a. dry mash ration which, contained'  one per cent, of fresh yeast. The condition of the flocks improved, materially with this change and the birdo  soon resumed their normal, appearance, with fair egg production. How-  ���������ever, the. production was.no higher  than in.the check pens which were'  not receiving yeast.  After continuing this. for. Ytwo  -months .the amount of yeast, given  was increased to three per .cent. This  'was' ground up, air and sun dried  and added to the dry mash, in which  'condition it will keep for several  weeks'   without   deterioration.  The fresh yeast, when dried, only-  gives about one-third of.-- its- fresh  weight so that in feeding , three  pounds of fresh product only about  11-4 pounds of dry pulverized  yeast were added to the mash. No  increased production due to the high  'er yeast content of the mash was  secured.  The work of feeding yeast...was  not conducted on a very extensiv-3  scale and the tests were not of sufficient duration to thoroughly, determine the .value of adding. it to th *���������  mash. The results however, were  very unpromising, and it WQuld, appear that, unless some' change was  made in feeding the yeast, it was  not of much value as food for laying hens.  EARLY  MORNING BEST.

The poultrymen of the valley are also on the job, getting every farmr  er of fruit-grower who markets eggs  in large quantities into., a co-operative association, with a view to dis"?  posing of the valley output through-  one channel. An organization meet;*  ing is to be held here this week..  The results of all the different  campaigns will be known by the end  of ithe week.  AN HONEST MAN  A preacher near.Bloomsburg.grew  fervent in exhorting to an honest living and near the close of his sermon he said: "Let every person in  the house who is paying his or her  debts stand up." Instantly every  man and woman in the house, save  one, was standing. After they were  peacefully seated, the dominie asked,  "Now let those stand up who are  not paying their debts," and a long  lean man of sixty or more years,  clothed in a seedy suit,of. tho past  decade, slowly assumed a perpendicular position in his pew. "How is it  my. friend," enquired the minister  in an austere tone, "that you are  the only one in this intelligent congregation who does not meet his obligations?"

THREE MAIN CAUSES  OF A POOR HATCH  Some, strange queries come, into  a newspaper information bureau,  and the answers are not always easy  but one the funniest was this: 'Say,  is this The Evening Times' information bureau?" inquired a voice at  the other end of the wire. "It is,"  politely answered the reporter.  "Anything, we can do for you?"  "Well, I want to know who was it  killed Abel?" "Why, his brother  Cain," answered the reporter, who  had once attended Sunday, school before he broke into the newspaper  business. "Oh; pshaw," came regretfully from the inquiring, voice.  "I'll bet I'll have to go without a  new overcoat this' winter; I bet a  fellow $20.00 that it was Goliath.  Thanks  PROVINCIAL PRESS  Farmers  from   Missouri.  When farmers complain of' hard  times, they are sometimes asked to  look at the'official figures which  show an increase in the value of  their products. These figures, however, are not very convincing, for  they are in dollars and the dollar is  not worth as much as it used to be.  To be convinced of his prosperity,  the farmer must be shown that with  his products' he can buy as much in  boots and shoes, dry goods and groceries, etc., as lie formerly" could���������  and nobody is" showing him figures  of this kind at the present moment:  ���������Greenwood Ledge.  in -it     - . ���������   r i-     -*       in  "How to get fat" says an advertisement.

When a poor hatch is experienced  the cause generally can be traced to  the breeding stock, the method    of  keeping eggs prior to putting them  in the incubator, or else to the machine itself.    The chicks that are rate  ed from a poor.hatch    usually must  be  watched  with  the    greatest. care  if they are to be   brought to matur  ity.    On the other hand, if the fertility and hatchability    both, are good  no fears  need  be    entertained  over  the birds that are hatched.
