He has just returned from Otta.w.i  where he has been working in the interests of better freight rates to the  coast and the shipment of grain via  the Pacific route. Now he is to tell  the peoplo what little Johnnie has  done for them and what he intend?:  doing for thorn in the future. L'\)  doubtedly Premier Oliver has r������*n-  derd the province a great service  provided he can carry his work t'-> a  final conclusion but this is one of t*he  things that he was elected for by tho  people of this province. Surely, after  having .given B.

C.-,.former member' of the' British .parliament, the  Canadian parliament and fprmpr  .member, of the legislatures of British Columbia and Manitoba, died  yesterday afternoon and left behind  a memory of mental vigor and legislative ability as .have , seldom been  equalled in Canada.  It has been said of Mr. Martin that  had he been marooned on a oasis in  the Sahara-desert the first thing he  should do would'be to form a parliament ..This jocular description is, just,  another way of saying that in ( him-  the social instinct, which is the, basis.  of all.government and is the security  of .-all government, was-' excptiomlly  strong.'

Recently, in.an Eastern city,  they held an "Efficiency exposition."  Every one'with a machine or a .device by which' to systematize and e-  liminate work was there in his little  booth, arguing!' gesticulating, demonstrating. The question sometime.*--,  arises whether the machine or the  system does not create more work  than 'it saves. "Efficiency" is not  wholly a new word. Any man who  ever worked "at a trade will recall  many arguments between old-time  workmen as to the ' most efficient  methods. Certain methods were always' handed down' as the most efficient. But thore was always a debatable borderland. A room full .*i'  workmen would waste the boss's  time, while the^were arguing which'  of two methods ^vas the .more efficient. There is now a tendency to  hold oneself-down, and to hold others down, to certain fixed, standard-.*  of production. The oldtime workman  sat down to-his bench with a'comfortable indefinite idea of the. . a-  niount of work that he was going to  turn out. He 'disliked the fetter-rig  grasp of a schedule. If a neighbor,  dropped in they began to talk politics. If the day's-'work 'did not show  well ,at six p m., he consoled himself  by thiriMng that there had been unusual difficulties to surmount.

CANADIAN BANK  OF COMMERCE  MONTHLY LETTER  The annual .meetings of shareholders of many industrial and financial  institutions are now taking place  and, to judge from the reports of  those already held, the general business outlook in Canada would appear to be improving slowly but  J'.ubstantially.

In the case  of some important commodites, how-  over, prices have ��������� recently advanced  slightly. ���������  While a number of Companies admit losses and defer, dividends, there  are many which were particularly  fortunate last year and are looking  forward sanguincly to the results of  the current year.

In the boot and shoo  trade the usual closing down for  the holiday season was of shorter  duration than in previous years, and  as a rule factories are busier than  at tiie commencement of 1922. Quite  recently substantial orders have been  placed for locomotives, rails- aud  other forms of transportation equipment, which will bring activity t-.<  certain districts which hav������  experienced depression during the  past few months.

This is' nature's way of develpiiirf  their' muscle and mind'. The love oi  play is the driving power of i'mma;  turity, by which .wholesome maturity  is attained. The play life differs as  much for the young of different species as does the serious work of tho  adults. The play of the colt pro:.  pares it for- swift travel, of the wulf  for clever, fierce' preying, of tho  partridge for ,instant hiding. .Deprive  .-my of these of their play, and ��������� you  jaunch them upon the serious' business of.life, unprepared and helpless. Leave them to play without direction or guidance and you will, get  a. similiar result. The wolf mothor  supcrv.ses the-play of the youngster  She leads him ,n games, and sees to  it that he learns and keeps the .rules.'  Some day his life will be the forfeit  If he fails to learn to play right. Ii  is so with every creature of the wild-.  The mother or both parents, through  tho play of their young, teach them  to live in safety and plenty.  It is man alone who leaves his  young to their own devices in play.  Yet those parents who have talcm  thought for the playtime of their  homes have alwayu reaped a rich reward in the character of their children. It is the custom of our time to  "farm out" most of the training of  our' children. We. have proxy parents, in the school teacher, tho Sunday school teacher, the librarian and  the truant, officer. But who is planning for their play? Who knows the  games they have?. Are they games  that will make them wise and clean  and strong and Avho provides the  place for their play? Who ought to  provide the place of play for youth?  Undoubtedly the parents ��������� and '��������� tho  home. The school/ town council,  church, club, or some person for private gain may take us this' task, but  vo fellow parents are finally responsible if the place of their play io  'ot a safe one.  Perhaps the biggest need today  :i the average community is not' for  aore town play grounds, or com-  vtunity halls, but for open homes. Is  -our's one of them? Can your young  osople play in your presenQe? Or  !oes the fun, die down when'you ap-  *ear on the scehe? Happy is tho  ���������Trent who finds himself or herself  -elcome in the gatherings' of their  ���������hildrcn. Invariably it is a reflex  ���������)f the welcome parents give to tlie  'vjends of their children. . The home-  vith the open door is to young  ;eople the sign ef an open heart.  The young people with .whom your  diildren- go, are safe morally in proportion to the number of good whole  :ome homes which are open to them,  '"very good thing in .them    prompts  hem to play atthegreat game      of  social  living.     Will  you  leave  them  "n  their need  to the tender mercies  '^f the folk    who    would    capitalize  heir desire for social play, and make  rionpy out of their' unguided efforts'  to   find   the   satisfaction   which   life  holds out to them, or. will you provide the supervision    to    safeguard  play?���������Ex.  MANY "PAGANS" IN  VICTORIA  VICTORIA, March 2.���������The growing number of "pagan" children i.i  the schools of Victoria is likely to  *ause 3erious trouble in the future  unless religious training is given  more attention. Dean Cecil Quai- ���������  ���������.on, rector of Christ Church Cathedral, told members of the Rotary  Club yesterday.  "We read that Bishop Farthing  ���������?ays Bolshevik schools are "' .being.  started in Canada to break down hs-  :ief in the existence of God and  destroy Christian (standards," said  the dean. "I do not say . that such  "chools' will ever be started in Victoria, but such institutions would  find a fertile field in the minds of  'he pagan children who are attencl-  'ng our schools."  CHTCKEN POX IS  HARD TO CHECK  In wet and cold weather of any  duration, there is always considerable danger of chicken pox affect-  !ng the poultry flock. Once this disease gets' well started, it is very  difficult to control, but if the flock  '������ watched closely at the outbreak  of the disease and treatment given  at once, little serious trouble will  be encountered.  The symptoms of chicken pox >re  (he appearance of wart-like growths  prominently raised from the ^skin.  The size mav vary to a considerable  degree ac<' ���������l������&iiT*g to location o"  through ccljPnation ��������� of several  lumps. Gene:ft?ly they have a diameter of from one-eighth to one-  quarter of an Inch. . ���������   .-  ���������These pox tumors occur chiefly  on the unfoathered or lightly feathered portions of the body, and particularly on the comb, wattels, eat  lobes and evelids. They may also  be found at times on the under surface of the wings. The nodules', as  ihesc lumps are called., first appear  ;'<* smnll. whitish points which rapidly increase in si/e. reaching the maximum in from four, to six days.

In' treating for the disease, the  sick birds should be first removed  from the remainder of the flock, and  the buildings and fixtures' thoroughly- disinfected with c, standard type  of disinfectant. The diseased birds  should be isolated individually, first  removing the crusts' or nodules and  then treating the spots.  For treating, Mr. C. Good recommends the "following preparation:  Six ounces o'f chloride of lime', one  ounce of bi-carbonate of soda and  four ounces of boracic acid. To this  should be added five parts of water.  In applying, one part of the preparation should be added to three  parts of water. All spots' should then  be thoroughly washed ' and soaked  with  this preparation.  Tho disease may also be checked,  by treating the spots with a two per  cent, solution of creolin or one to  one thousandth dilution of  ide of murcury, followed by  ing of iodoform.  Another treatment that will sometimes give satisfaction is to greass  the spots with carbolated vaseline or  to apply tincture of iodine to each.  biehlbr-  a dust-  A SERMON IN A BEE  **X?3)SD  Alex.

Death came at 1:45 p. m., in the  General- Hospital, after he had weakened gradually for the last week, in j  spite of the many rounds that he won  with sickness, the great political  and legal fighter knew, that tins  was-to be hie last illness, for it it?  recorded--that when he entered tho  hospital two weeks ago today 'Ik  commented that,he .did not- expect  to-conio out alive. It was at'hi-i  own request that his brother, E. ���������D.  Martin, of -Winnipeg, was summoned  to be with him.  It was-the' irony of fate that he  had only received' marked benefit  from the now insulin treatment,for  the diabetes.from .which he had suffered for several years, when influenza took hold and laid him low.  "Fighting Joe'" Martin probably  the only.man who ever sat in four  parliaments of- idifferent jurisdictions, ..had.^the most extraordinary  parliamentary career Of any man iu  tho history of the British empire. H*_*  is Canadian house of commons from  1893 to 1896, of tho British Columbia, legislature ' from J 898 to 19<J3  and of the Imperial house ������f commons .from 191.0 to 1919. ' He successfully contested eight parliamentary election contests and was defeated four times, twice for * the  Canadian commons, once .for the  British house,' and once for tho B  C. legislature (1920). He was', attorney-general in the Grcenway-^administration in Manitoba from 1.8 SS  to 1891 and attorney-general in ;the  Semlin government of B. C. during  189,8_and .1-899 and premier of British' Columbia for a few months of  of .19.00.  ���������Im addition he ran for mayor of  Vancouver on several occasions, .but  always unsuccessfully. Altogether  he. spent 27.--years of his eventful  life as a spokesman for thepeople in  parliament -and no legislature, of  ���������which he was a member ever had a  dull  time.  The five-year period during which  he belonged to the B. C. legislature  was one of the most colorful chapters  in Canadian political history. 'He  entered the house as a representative  of Vancouver city, going in at the  election, of 1898 along with C.E. Tis-  dall (now mayor of Vancouver), Rob  ���������ert ���������MePherson- and .the;late F. C.  Carter-Cotton, for many years Riib-  'lisher,',of.'the Daily-NewB-Advertiser,  which is' now Incorporated with The'  Sun :  ���������Richard McBride first entered tin*'  legislature at the-same-election, and  other.members of that    house were  Alex.  Henderson,-now- a prominent  Vancouver...barrister;   Thomas   Kidd,  pioneer Richmond    farmer;    -A.-.W.  Neill, now member of the   house of.  commons for -CpmoxrAlberni;  Dr. R.  E.  McKechnie, Ralph  Smith, R. \'..F  Green, D. M. Eberts, Jno. Irving and  others equally well.known.  Mr. Martin was elected along with I  his Vancouver colleagues as an opponent of the Turner government of  that day, and. before the, legislature  met Lieut. Goyeror Mclnnes called  upon the Turner government to resign, an unusual procedure in those  days, as it was customary for a government apparently defeated at the  polls to carry on'until formally voted out of offico by the assembly.  Hon. Charles A.' Semlin, who was  called upon to form a ministry, rec ���������  ognized the previous experience of  .Mr. Martin .as attorney-general of  Manitoba, and took him into the  cabinet.in that position. The late  Hon. F; L.. Carter-Cotton was also  taken in as minister of finance.-  Between these two ministers, men  of entirely opposing political theories and .both strpngly self-willed and  immediate, antagonism <��������� arose. Mr.  Martin was attorney-general during  only .one session, in "which he put  through '���������! two highly^ contentious  pieces' of legislation���������an eight-hour  bill 'for underground workers in the  minea, and ��������� an act disqualifying  aliens from holding mineral rights  in the province.  , Both were attacked at Ottawa  only the alien law was disallowed,  representations from the American  ambassador at St. James that tlie  bill. deprived American miners of  valuable properties in the Atlin district being responsible. The fond  botween Mr. Martin and Mr. Cartor-  Cotton became so. acute after this  SGBSion that Mr. Semlin called upon  the former to resign, and ho immediately crossed tho floor of the house  and became the most vigorous oppositionist in the house. A, Henderson was called to succeed him, but he  too held office for only one session,  for the defection of Mr. Martin left  the government with a majority of  only one in the house,' and on a  contentious redistributidn bill tho  ministry  was  defeated.  Premier Semlin declined to resign as.called upon by the lieutenant  governor to do bo, but effected a coalition with some of his former opponents and proposed to carry on.  ��������� His honor: declined to accept this advice and dismissed Mr. Semlin from  office. Twenty-four hours, later he  Called upon Joseph Martin to accept1  the  premership.  Mr. Martin has been elected as a  bitter opponent, of the Turner administration and' had no friends in  that party although he helped them  defeat their successors, the Semlii.  government. Similarly his defection from that .party , loft him ik  friends there. The upshot-was- au  incident unparalleled in parliamentary history. When the. house tu-  sembled on. February 2S, 1900, 'it  adopted by a vote of 28 to 1, tht-  following resolution:  "That this house has no confidence in the third member for Vancouver Mr. Martin, '* who has been  called on by his honor the lieutenant  governor to form a government.''  Both parties wero able to unite -in  their antagonism to the stormy petrel of the house.  -  Hardly has this vote been recorded when the lieutenant governor arrived to prorogue the assembly. Every member of tho house promptly  arose and left the chamber, tin  speech of prorogation being delivered .to empty benches. Mr. Martin  alone, who had automatically vacated, his seat, by accepting office re  mained in the chamber and he occupied a distinguished visitor's chair  not that.of,a member.  Nothing daunted, ''Fighting Joe'.'  immediately proceeded to the forma-  ion of a.ministry and the calling ot  a general election. He took in witn  him Smith Curtis as minister oJ  mines,., J. Stuart Jates as commissioner of lands and works, Cory  S. Ryder as' minister of finance and  George W. Beebe as provincial secretary. ' Mesrs. Yates, Ryder and  Beebe were without legislative experience and the last two -mentione':!  were hardly known outside then  own neighborhoods. Nevertheless  Mr. Martin with consummate skill  drew, up a popular platform .and  made what has been described as.  one of the most brilliant campaigns  in the history of Canadian-politics.  His platform included construction  of a Coast-Kootenay railway as , a  government line, and an anti-oriental plank. He succeeded in winning  his own Vancouver seat, .but carried  with him only 12 supporters.  The result of 'the contest was -. a  meeting of,.the ..newly-elected .members at which a .resolution asking  the Dominion government to de-  .mand the resignation of the. lieutenant governor was passed. The demand was acted upon.  Mr. Martin was now. in opposition,  but the Dunsmuir government, which  succeeded   him,   attempted   to   carry  out his policy of a, Coast-- Kootenay  railway; only r'to receive .engineering  reports .that the Hope mountain was  impassable  for  a  railway  except  at.  prohibitive cost.    In .1901 :Mr. Dunsmuir took into his .government J. C.  Brown, a close friend of Mr.,Martin  only to win the antagonism of    tha*  formidable figure, Richard McBride  then a member of the '  government  although still under 3 0 years.of age  Mr.   McBride   resigned   and   entered  Thomas   Gifford  in  the     by-election  against Mr; .Brown 'in New Westminster and defeated him.      This, madf-  McBride the acknowledged leader of  the opposition,   .although in the previous    session,    the    function    had  been filled by Mr. Martin, who    wo.;.  now  disposed  to be" friendly to the  administration.  Mr. Martin's next venture into pol  itics was as an independent candidate  in Vancouver in the general elecion  cf 1908 on an Asiatic exclusion platform, in which he was unsuccessful.  The following year he moved to Eng-.  land with the avowed intention, as  he often stated, of "taking a whirl"  %t British politics. A by-election  occurred in Stratford-on-Avon in-  190 9 and Mr. Martin succeeded in  gettig the Liberal nomination, bui  the people of Shakespeare's home  town preferred a Conservative member.  Next year.came a general election  and Mr. ��������� Martin ran, in the laboring ���������  constituency of East St. Pancras' as  a Radical Liberal. He was elected  and held his seat until the post war  election of 1919, by which time he  had returned to Vancouver to resume  his law practise. It was his wish to  accept a Labor nomination,,but the  election was sprung too quickly and  Ills health was not in good condition.  Tlie late Mr. Martin was a thorough Canadian, his father also having been born in this country. He  was born on a farm near Milton, Out.  In 1852. His parents lived for a short  tlmo in Michigan during his youth  and he received part of his education  at the Ypsilanti Normal school. H-.'  taught school in Ontario for seve al  years, studying law in the meantime  In 1882 he moved to Portage La  Prairie and was the year admitted to  the bar of Manitoba. In 188 3 he  was elected to the Manitoba legislature for Portage la Prairie and became attorney-general of the province in 1888. ��������� As a private member  he had been vigorous in his attacks  on the separate school system and  while in the ministry introduced and  put on the statute books an act establishing the present system of national common schools. Later h?  appeared before the Privy Council  for the province, successfully defending the validity of the act a-  gainst efforts made in court to have  it set aside.  In  1891  he    unsuccessfully    con-  ANTI-BETTING    MOTION   FAILS  OTTAWA, March 2.���������Tho resolution moved in the. House on Wednesday by W. C. Good, Progressive.

Progressives * present yoted for  the resolution with! the exception of  Angus McDonald, Temiskaming, who  voted against it.  During the debate, Sir Lomer G-oyi-  in, minister of justice, intimated the  possibility.of new legislation on rac-  ng. The attorney-general of Ontario, he declared, had recommended such amendments, to the criminal  oode as would make illegal the publication of racing tips, ��������� selections,  odds, winning money prizes, pari-  mutuel. payments or similar information except on the.premises of a racing association while a meet is in  progress, whether the race be held  within or without Canada  "I am prepared,"1 added Sir Lomer, "after reading the' proposed  amendments, to recommend to my  colleagues that we should make a  government measure of the -.substance of the amendments which, I  have just read to the House."  Describing the Good resolution  as another piece of "uplight legishi  tion," Lucien Cannon, Liberal, Dorchester, said the Progressives', when  it came to .gambling on the . wheat  crop, were there with their money:  and- last year, they wanted parliament to.institute a wheat board so  that they "would always win on  their bets and never lose."  HOW TO PLAY BASKETBALL  COUGAR  PROWLED   ABOUT  HOUSE ALL THE NIGHT  A cougar entered Mr. C. J. Cleri-  hue's kitchen, Deroche on Saturday  night, Feb. 17th. , Mrs. Clerihue,  who was alone in the house, watched the animal, which was within six-  feet -of her window for fifteen minutes. Tracks around the house  showed that the animal .kept'close  to the house all night. Frank Lewis  and Roy Morrison after an exciting  chase over the mountain next morning, shot the cougar, the body of  which was displayed in' Mr. Cooper's  store ; window.  A young minister had obtained a.  kirk in a mining district in Scotland.  After a deal of difficulty he managed to secure lodgings. The first  morning following his arrival the  landlady knocked at the door with  the rather .uusual query as to whether he had washed himself.'  "Yes,", he said. "Why?"1'  "Because,"  she    replied,    calmly,  "I'm gan to mak' a dumpling    f or |  the dinner, an' I wad like    the len'  o' the basin!"  tested Selkirk in the federal generai  election of that year, but in 1893 he  was elected M.P. for Winnipeg. In  the house of commons' he was largely instrumental in defeating the fa  mous remedial bill and. also a measure to hand over the development  og the Red river to a private company.  When his term in the commons expired in 1896 he came to Vancouver and was admitted to the bar of  B. C. in 18 97 becoming a member of  the legislature the next year and  attorneyrgeneral in 1899, as mentioned   heretofore.  He was regarded as one of the  ablest counsel in British Columbia  for many years. He was for many  years senior member of the firm of  Martin, Craig & Parkes, and was  later.in partnership with George IT.  Cowan, K. C. Latterly he has been  senior partner in the firm of Martin, McGeer & McGeer.  Mr. Martin took a keen interest In  municipal politics, running for mayor of Vancouver on several occasiona  but without success.  Of all his great political experience Mr. Martin often stated that the  'nost interesting phase was in tho  Manitoba legislature during the sop-  irate school fight  In 1881 Mr Martin was married  lo Mrs. Elizabeth Jane Eaton of  Ottawa, who died in 1913 and was  buried in Ottawa. She was a daughter of the late Edward Roilly of  Richmond. Ont. ' His brother, Eo.  ward D. Martin, who came from  Winnipeg to his dying brother's bedside, is a pioneer drug merchant of  Winnipeg.  While it was Joseph Martin's fati-  to plow a lone furrow amoag the  greater part of his political career,  even his opponents agreed that this  was due to the unswerving devotion  to the principles in which he believed and to his absolute inability or  unwillingness to compromise these  principles.  Offense  Practically every art of the game  sucli as passing, shooting, handling  ones' self while dribbling, pivoting,  dodging, jumping and starting must  be well executed in offensive formations. One slip up or one. act/of  indecision is likely to make the formation useless. Strong offensive  play always comes as the result .. of  combined efforts. One star, or ��������� a  team comprised wholly of stars can  not accomplish the greatest result  if their efforts are individual. High  lyt developed team play with formations built around a star player will  work out exceptionally well.  Successful offensive, play requires  the. working of the' ball down/the  floor through the opponents defense  by a series of passes or bridlle ;:so  as to. secure a point of vantage -for  shooting.". Failure to start an offense play after a player secures the  ball is usually due to teammates hot  coming around,in front to receive a  pass.and allowing.the man with the  1 all to advance his position. Someone should always be in an advanced  position but when calling for a pass,  as we have stated before, a player  should get in motion to meet the  ball.  There are times when close guarding prevents such movements , and  back passing must be resorted ..to.  Under this condition back passing is  good basketball. Nsually the back  or stationary guard is uncovered and  in,.an excellent position to receive'', a  pas3 when the play is blocked near  the center of the court. The running guard should be on the look ;out  for back passes.  The style of offense which^a-team  is using can often by judged, by.the  style of passing used. Many teams  resort wholly to -a variety of lonfc  passes endeavoring at all times to  have the ball beat- their opponent to  the basket. We have noticed 'that  tljis is not effective unless developed  very highly. *'" ��������� ,  .A dribbling game effects the same  style of play, while the short passing game is usually played with the  object of creating and opening rnear  the basket for an, incoming player to  receive.a pass and shoot. :The most  successful offence is that which combined long and short passes with the  dribble used occasionally.  ! Starting Points  Though the long pass may. reach  the'center, and the forwards be , on  hand to receive the:pass out, still. iev-  ery'.man .might be covered and .unable' to shoot. Short snappy passing  around the basket will aid in .getting  a man uncovered under such circumstances. It means that . every,man  must be on the move$  Players may be -drilled in many  offensive, points during practise but  experience has taught that conditions as outlined in "practise occur  only occasionally in games. However, the drill work is exceedingly  valuable for it forms good basketball habits and also wakens within  the. player a recognition of the possibilities for the start of team play.  The tip-off at center is practicaliy  the only formations where specific  starting places can be set. It must  be remembered that forwards 'and  guards must be constantly on the  move to obtain the advantage ,��������� of  position. A ball held out of bounds,  a held ball, and the linerup .all for  a free throw all hold splendid possibilities for the start of an offensive  formation. If the players''have:been  drilled in such formations :team play  will result in the game. Tt can-not  be expected that formations', will  work out as specifically planned  but a start or an attempt to do so  will. eliminate loss of time and .indecision.  A team should master its. selection of plays, exceedingly well and  not try to acquire a large number-of  half-learned plays. This end can we  accomplish by starting with a very  few plays and gradually perfecting  others as the season , progresses.  Plays should remain as simple as possible, for the fewer the. passes the  more liklihood of completion.-  BURNABY  NEEDS  $485,000  FOR 1023 ESTIMATES  EDMONDS, Feb. .22.���������The sum  of $485,000 will be required to operate the Burnaby corporation during  1923, according to a decision of the  council sitting in commlttoe yesterday afternoon. This represents an  increase of-520.000 over 1922 but is  accounted for by the extra demand  of the school board which has' askod  $1.52,719 as against $120,950 in  1922. The tax rate will be 38 mills  for improved and 50 mills for wild  land as against 36 mills for  improved and 50 for wild land during 1922. The assessed value of  property was reported to have fallen  from $12,910,635 in 1922 to $12,-  405,11-1 for 1923.

At-.a meeting of the Growers' Committee of the new Berry Growers'  Co-operative Union of British Columbia, held at the offices of ,the  B. C. Berry Growers' Association,  Ltd., Vancouver, on this date, February 28th, 1923, a . Provisional  Board of thirteen Directors was appointed as follows:  Mr. H. M. Eddie, representing-  Chilliwack and Agassiz.'  Mr. H. L. Perkins, representing  Sumas to Surrey.  Mr. S. Riches, representing Richmond,  Burnaby  and Burquitlam.  Messrs. H. P. Simpson and R. . A.

USE OF ELECTRIC LIGHT TO  INCREASE  EGG PRODUCTION  Considerable interest-has obtained  among poultrymen during the past  year by the reported increases in  winter egg production following the  uso of electric    lights    to    lengthen  the-days.    Varying plans are adopted for fooling the hens into activity'  at times when without    lights tl:e#  would   be   sleeping  peacefully���������and  unproductively.  W. H. Allen, poultry extension  specialist, has made some observations among the chicken-growers pf  New Jersey, and the following suggestions are the outcome:  The light used in the pen does not  need to.be very strong. One 15-watt  light on each side of the centre post  in a pen 20x2.0 is enough; or one 40-  watt light placed so that it does not  throw shadows.  The times of lighting the henhouse'that have proved most popular  are three. The-;first is the ' evening,  lunch" plan, in ; which lights are  turned on only in the evening���������from  8 to 9 or 9 to 10;', giving the bird*  only one hour, in which to feed.  t The" second plan,, which is quite  as popular as the first, is morning'  lighting,; under this plan lights are  turned on sufficiently early .so.: that  chickens' will have 12 hours' Qf daylight without ��������� the ,use of evening  lights.  The third plan consists of turning  the lights on at 6 in the morning until- daylight, and again at sunset, to  remain on ' until ,6 o'clock. This  makes the night and the day equal;  12 hours each.  It must be-r.emembored that lights  are of no value unless the flock is  encouraged to consume more feed.  "At least 14    pounds    of   scratch  feed, should be fed 100 birds," sa'd  Mr. Allen,-"and a .'like amount of  mash. Two pounds- of grain-is sof-'  ficient',tb be fed during the hourajof'  additional lighting: the other 13  pounds to be distributed during tho  day-light hours:  "Do not forget, in addition to tb.3  feed, to see that water pans are free  from ice    and    filled    with    fresh  water,"' ���������-.'
