The regular meeting of the Poultry Association was held recently in  .the" Bank of Montreal- Chambers. A  committee was formed for the purpose of'meeting the Agricultural Association in'order to lay before them  'a recommendation for a re-classification of the prize list and better accommodation for the poultry at the  next-local-fall fair.  A committee was also formed from  amongst the poultrymen themselves,  to meet members of the Fraser Valley, Huntingdon Feed and Berry  Growers' Associations for lhe purpose of discussing the advisability of  forming a single co-operative association embracing all these varied interests.  ��������� -    " ' .   '���������      "  The speaker for tne evening was  Professor Lloyd of the University ./'  B. C," who gave an interesting talh  en "Hatching and Rearing." He also  outlined the excellent research work  being carried on at the University,  results from which will be of real  practical value to the poultrymen of  this province. ' The individual poul-  tryman has not the time or means to  carry on this work ancl it is up to  [him to see that Professor Lloyd and  his associates at. the University receive the necessary support- in order  lo carry on the good work, which at  the present time is carried on under,  great'difficulties, for which there  should be no necessity whatever.

A. BATES, Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY,-MARCH 24,  192?,  The question of incorporation i.s  ��������� again stirring- sonic citizens of this  community, and it does seem a pity  that this matter should not he gone  into fully and soe just whfire wo  stand. Last year tin* Board c������ Trade  would not consider the question hut  this year it does appcu* that the  new blood in the Board area bit  more ambitious' than some of the  older members and at the last meeting some of the m ambers wero quite  worked up over tho question.  When the editor ol' this papor first  , settled in Mission    City    one ol'   his  warnings was that the papor was not  to talf incorporation    as it was ,not  considered by the    largest    property  . owners in the best interests of     tho  community.    Yet there were sonic in  those days who thought that   incorporation   would be of   advantage to  .    the town.  But in. those days there were no  . sidewalks and main street was more  like a country road than-the principal street of a town. There was a  little sidewalk on the street leading  to the hospital from Grand Avenue  and that was about ail there was in  the whole burg. That summer-���������  1,908���������the citizens got. up a pctilion  and sent- it to the governnioni  through!the local.representative, who  during the'next few-years looked after the "matter pretty well,1 and- the  Hon. Thomas Taylor, then- Minister  of Public Works, made a personal  visit to the town-to see that the  walks were put down right. Later on  the rock was put on Washington  Street, and that it was well done,  that the present ��������� -condition of, the  road will indicate, for with a  little supervision it is still in good  . condition,-much better than the side-  walksNare at the present time. They  have not the supervision., from the  government that "they should.  Now .'the,question is, would the  burg he.any better off- with incorporation as a.village than it is now?  True'we'would be able to spend our  own money, but could'and would it  be spent to as' good advantage as - it.  is now? Would' we getany more fur,  the amount of taxes that we are paying? Would the commissioners F.oe  to it that the money was spent'where  it should be* of the : best advantage,-  and would the citizens be any bettor  satisfied-then than they are now'.'  We could >ask* ourselves a lot mbr'.*  questions like this,.and we would not  know how it would be until we had  tried/it: And after we had , tried.it,  and were 'not satisfied, what would be  the next step? People talk about taxation- now, what would it be should  the thr^ee' commissioners' decide that  they wan ted. twenty mills, the limit,  instead.of . ten as at present? We  . would shave to keep on going as we  were or get in with the'municipality,  and woiijcl the municipality take us  in then" when we could not make our  own affairs run smoothly?  Incorporation is a matter ��������� that  needs consideration from every point  of-*view, and the'question' answered,  would .we be. any better, off. spending  the small amount of money at tea  mills than we are now? It is a big  question, and the principal promoters  should bring forward the examples of  some really successful small incorporations'. We all know some that  are not successful, and they stand  prominently -before us. Convincing  the majority that incorporation  would be of benefit would he half the  battle.  have    had so    many    soup-kitchens.  Have you not in the past dear   reader known of men who were absolutely broke when the winter came along,  but who did not ask the help of. any  city, being perhaps too    proud- to do  so. We have heard of men, and knew  men who worked for the winter   for  their board and some clothes,    probably with-some   farmer   or at   some  other occupation.    Now it is differen*-,  in-many cases. There is always plenty of work to do even in hard times,  and we believe a man is more   independent working than    loafing, even  if the working is not to    his    liking  However our sympathy    goes ,out to  the poor fellow who is hungry     and  ,cold, and perhaps" after all it is'   that  same feeling that,    makes   provision  for the unemployed during the winter.  If the milk of a red cow drunk by  afchild makes the child red-headed  when it grows up, no ( wonder there  are so many gray people with the  tlolstein giving so much good milk.  Many people talk of a drum-tight  Sunday. Would that mean that we  do not talk about, our neighbors' affair on Sunday?  They tell us that Ottawa is' full of  those who have been "life-long" Liberals all seeking a job frorii the government. It is over ten years' since  the Liberals had full sway for the  government jobs, but since tho Union  government came into power we  thought that they had about equal  chances, or in some cases better  chances with Calder than the Conservatives1. We know-of some Liberals  who did well under the Conservative  government. Howevei .to tlie victor  belongs- th'j spoils and maybe the.  farmers will have all the good. * jobs  in a few years', and we tguess some of  them could stand it too.  "  (ing $2,070,906.'

Except  in extreme "cases, pruning shouKl be  moderate and should consist more of  thinning out here, and there, with as  little heading in as possible. In  young orchards newly set out, it may  be necessary to adopt a system .of  heading hack to give out lateral  growth, which will.be able to pro-  duce, fruit spurs in later years,. Ia  bearing orchards light annual pruning should be given, so 'that ac no  time will it be necessary to materially alter the balance between root,  and top by a severe heading back or  excessive cutting- out. In old bearing orchards, which have been somewhat neglected, a considerable  amount of top should probably be removed' to encourage now wood  growth, so that a new fruiting surface may be established. As before  mentioned, however, light annual  printings are to be recommended, for  recent work has demonstrated that  unpruned trees have yielded slightly, better, up to a certain age, than  trees pruned, but that tree's pruned  lightly have yielded almost as well,  while those severely headed back-  wore not only later in coming into  bearing and poor yiclders afterwards,  but wore also less vigorous than the-  lightly pruned and unpruned lots.  ���������.Where, light heading back practised for the first three years was adopted, the comparison between trees  pruned' and unpruned .showed llt.Llev  difference in favour of tho unpruned, but those trees which hud been  pruned were of decidedly better  shape*, and in better condition for  future work than the ones ' where  pruning had been . neglected. These  results have" simply justified the  practise of. pruning during the first  few years-of a tree's life with,, the  express purpose of obtaining a desirable amount of growth placed where  we want Jr. In the case of some trees  this will, require considerable cutting-  out and some cutting back for . the  first three or four years. In other  cases ,it .will "require s very little wood  removal, but in all cases the trees  should be' attended to annually.  .The vigour of the tree is' in inverse  -ratio to.the amount of severe heading back practised. This does not  nie.an, however, that no pruning is  to be. advocated, for a certain amount  is necessary in any case to maintairL  the proper, shape of a tree and some  pruning should be given to eliminate  the possibility of having to . "give  drastic treatment at a later date  to rectify long neglect. "The , lesson  is, however, that' the only- sufficient-  ���������pruning to maintain the shape 'and  general vigor of the tree is to be  recommended.  " Indiscriminate heading back delays fruitfulness and reduces vigor.  .Light annual prunings will not materially impair or delay fruitfulness  ancl will eliminate future trouble. A  little enlargement on' this latter  statement is perhaps necessary to  make' clear the point. ' We " are  all aware of the advantage to be gained by heading a tree properly. A tree  witlfits_^head starting 'from - :>nc  point' on - the ' trunk is' weak . and  doomed to an early death. To correct  this pruning is "necessary- Again, we  all"know that in pruning one should  try to cut out all crotches which are  acute-angled, as .limbs thus crothch-  ed are sure to split open; the limb  that comes closest to forming a right  angle with the main trunk is the  strongest. This is also attained by  pruning., so here are two reasons why  pruning'or training is necessary - in  the life of the young tree.  Consider for a moment the relation-between pruning and nutrition;  the roots-of a tree function by gath  ering "from the soil plant foods in solution, which is transmitted to the  different parts of the tree .for elaboration "by the leaves. The plant  food gathered may roughly be divided into two classes; nitrates, as supplied, for example, by nitrate of soda  and carbohydrates. These latter are  the elaborated forms' produced by  the leaves from the solutions obtained by the roots, and are stored close  to the point of manufacture. In order that the leaves c*n manufacture  these carbohydrates sunlight is necessary, so that if a tree' becomes  too thick in the head, thus shutting-  out sun from the centre or lower  portion's of the tree, those parts shut  off from the sunlight will not be able  to manufacture carbohydrates and  will, as a consequence, become unfruitful; another reason why^so'me  pruning is essential, is to maintain  the vigor of all parts of the tree hj  admitting -the."-necessary' sunlight.-���������  Experimental Fai'm note.

COMING���������"THE SHEIK," FRIDAY and SATURDAY, MARCH 31  and  APRIL  1. "  Spare the Milk  and Spoil the Child  Importance and Value of the Product,  of the Dairy Cow.  Every family in Canada is vitally  concerned In its main food supplies.  Among them milk and milk products  are as indispensable in the. diet of  both child and adult as is bread itself. Referring to child nutrition, Dr.  A. J. Amyot, Deputy. Minister of  Health, recently made the statement  that "there are many.under-nourished' or improperly fed children in this  country, improved by the .more liberal use of. milk in the diet."  .  In a pamphlet'just issued by the  ���������Dominion' Department of Agriculture, Ottawa, entitled, "Why and  How to Use Milk" of which Miss H.  C. Campbell of the Dairy Branch is  the author, it is stated that milk  contains all-the', requirements for  the growth and repair iof .the body.  Milk contains.protein from which to  build new cells and repairs worn-out  tissues. . It contains fat and sugar,  which serve as a source of heat and  energy for muscular activity, and  mineral niltter which has a regulatory effect and enters into tho composition of. the body, ������specially as  regards the bone and teeth. The deficiencies of other foods are counterbalanced by milk in the diet. When  milk is served with .cereal, with  bread, or other -foods' made from  grains, not only are the nutrients in.  milk used, ,but much other protein  is conserved for body uses which  would otherwise be wasted. Butter,  for which there is no .real substitute  as,a beneficial food, ia' made from  cream, and cream is whole milk with  a large percentage of that soluble fat  without which the .normal growth  and development' of the body or of  the mental, powers are--impossible.  All the good of the milk is not taken  off with/the cream���������far'from it. It  still contains tlie protein,- mineral  matter and vitamines necessary to  build bone and make, blood. Nor. is  the food value of milk * destroyed"  when it spurs. Made - into cottage  cheese one pound - 'contains as much  protein as a pound of meat, and who  can".deny the deliciousness of sour-  milk .biscuits and :' griddle cakes?  Butter-milk'hag a-food value equal  to that of'skim milk'or sour milk, is  easily-digested and is delightfully refreshing to drink. "Condensed milk-  is useful where fresh1,milk-is not-obtainable, but is hot suitable as a permanent diet for babies.'*' Evaporated  milk' will'keep indefinitely if^sealed.  but when uncovered should he used  as .quicklyas fresh milk'. If ."given to  children fresh fruit- juice should . he  added to tlie diet.    ������ "���������"������������������-' -���������   ���������  One particularly interesting piece  of * information in Miss* Compbell's  pamphlet is a description of the manner in which milk can be pasteurized  at home,, thus, being freed of any  possible obnoxious germs, with practically no expense and with only a  modicum of trouble. People who regard ice cream as a mere luxury are  mistaken; it is' a real food. In conclusion it may be stated that forty-  nine receipes'are given "In the bulletin referred to for making delicious  dishes, in all of which" milk is the  principal or most important ingredient. - -;' -  cl'ayburn g. w. v. a.
