During ray sojourn in that country  nine ,years ago I found the leading  men greatly exercised concerning the  threatened dismemberment , of their  country. Ostensibly for the .purpose  of, obtaining spheres ' of , commercial  influence,- Great Britain, France. Germany, ' Russia and Japan had , all  acquirod -.control of, 'Certain portions^  of "Chinese territory, and it scemW'  only a question _ of time when their  nation would disappear from the map  of the world. < ���������������  China owes her existence today,  ���������partly to the fact that' two of the  nggreslsve powers became involved  in war over a certain portion of her  territory. v ,  ,.  To realize ho\v far the absorption  of, that 'country'.ha'a extended, ,one  needed only to yisjt Hong Kong and ���������  see the formidable .fortification ' defending tho entrance to the harbor���������  the powerful fleet of battleships/tho  palace of the governor general and  the 5,000 trained, tf/sclplincd, veteran  (English) troops,' all under a foreign ���������  flag. Similar occupation could bo  observed  in  other parts  of the  cm-  The policy instituted in  1911  oy  the! department of agriculture with  . reference to  the*  granting   of   aid  under certain conditions, to owners  of thoroughbred stallions- is generally meeting with approval and  is accomplishng, un part at least,  the objects sought when the policy  was 'undertaken.- - Amongst   other  , things, owing to the rigid conditions ianp osed. it- is' 'enc'ourag^ua'g.  ,those maintaining really high'class  horses* and is serving, tto organize  . .the system of. breeding followed' in  the different * corhmunities ' where  the thoroughbred stallions are located, the stimulus : given " in-  this manner, to the use ofthe thoroughbred blood will, it "is believed  lead to 'an improvement 'in! the  light horse stock' of the country.  Thoroughbred stallions, i.f really  good individuals, may be expected  to' exert such an influence, nh .the  development 'of Canadian horses  for saddle and harness use,'as is  greatly needed and greatly, to  be  ' desired. The premium placed upon  quality, soundness; and prepotency  through'the'grants awarded by the  Department is serving to check the  use of unsuitable sires" and is pending to conserve a type of thor-r  oughbred, the utility of which is  beyond question.  While, as perhaps should be statn  od, it iis.not the intention,of the  Department to encourage the  breeding of thoroughbred horaeB  or do -develop *a .type in l������.ghit.  horses .approximating closely to1  that, of the thoroughbred, ^h'ere. is  no \ question but that a strong*  infusion of thoroughbred blood in  the light legged mares -of the;  country will be of inestimable val*  u'o in improving the quality pt the  stock ,got from' them by' stallions  of the various light harness breeds.  Believing himself to be justified  therefore, in further prosecuting  the policy begun last year, the  ^Honorable 'Martin Burrell, Minister of Agriculture, has authorized  the continuance of the .grant, to-  be available' for all thoroughbred.  stallions, standing for public serv-  ���������.ire, 'to be kept, at an annual serv-  ce 'fee, except in the case of thor-  .Mughbredi mares, of noit more than  jilO.OO 'to insure, such service fee to  become due and payable only when  ,mares .prove to  oeMiWoal. x  Any. persom, firm or corporation  owning or'controlling any thor-  ouughbred" stallion in regard to  which'all of'the conditions above  ���������j-et forth shall' have* been duly  and,properly fulfilled, shall on production of satisfactor ^.'evidence  .hereof and" of' the fact' that a  reasonable number of mares, other  Cham   thoroughbred   mares,   havej  i * * *       ���������  been iserve'd"cfuring the season, be  entitled to receive'at "the'close of  -���������ach such season the sum of $250  Jrom' .the funus'of the 'Live Stock'  .-.Jra  rich.  if;  in  the' event   of    a  horse dying or becoming .lhcap-  -.tcita.tect ior' service aunrig tyae  season, an approved substitute is  immediately placed in' the same  district,, the Minister niaiy, after  due  consideration' of  the   circum������  hey abhor tlie fifst .and it poss:  would always avoid the latter.

' The   reason   is   that' up  to' a certain extent household scraps  go a long way to reduce the cost of  .fe'pdinf   hiit  beyond-that  limit  there  .arises the necessity to n������e purchased  food. - For instanpp. an amateur commences with half a dozen "hens,  and  'by careful- management  and  the- use  jof scraps-be reaps a moderate profit.  'Encouraged by .this result, he resolves  to double his  stock,.but the returns  no  lo^f/pr  show ' such -a  high'profit  per.   head,    because    the    household  scrpn?  have  to  be  divided ��������� among  a  larger   number   of   birds,   and   wore  food has to be bought.-- In- this  way.  the .small poultry-keeper often allows  amh'*'on. to, override   discretion,   for  whether  it  pays  better  in   the. long  ���������run to keep a dozen hens that give a  .s'inoii -profit ' per  head   than' halfi a  dozen giving one half more per head  .depends    ent'~ely    upon    the    snace  ���������available.     As   economic   production  .Is   the   basis   of   successful   poultry-  kpenfne.  the  flock  that can- be  kept  most cheaply is bound to be the most,  profitable.  ON'T think' that concrete "can be'used  .only  for building bridges, silos, walls  and walks; because if you do; you will-  probably, overlook all  the places where you.  'can use it now.  T.���������L. Irving, of North Georgetown, Quebec,  used concrete for 81 different purposes on his  farm in, 1911. " ,  There are probably at least a dozen profitable uses' for concrete'on your farm at.the present moment.

It is claimed that��������� when  fresh eggs are placed In cold storage  the eggs are alive: that they are slowly frozen to death, and that in spite  of the preservation qualities of the  ice the eggs do not taste good when  cooked. It is now believed that by  electrocuting the eggs the natural  fresh taste may be retained and not  PRINCE OF PRUSSIA  ..

' OKLAHOMA CITY. ��������� Oklahoma  City is dry and the saloon free  lunch has disappeared. ��������� Now every  drug store in town has a lunch  counter in addition to a stamp, city  directory and public telephone departments. Lunch signs are displayed  prominently on drug stores. One  drugist explains it this way:  "When the saloons closed, folks  tried to get. their drinks in drug  stores. But these went dry, too, and  there was a boom in soft drinks. In  cool weather/crackers were , served  with hot drinks. Folks found this  a substitute for free 'lunch.' Finally  the free lunch became too elaborate  and we put in lunch counters. Now  every drug store in Oklahoma City is  selling sandwiches, chill con carne,  cake and pie."

INVEST ON THE FARM  A group of farmers  were oue day  [talking  together   about- farmers',   ln-  V-eatmenta.   .One   man   declared   that  mortgages   on   farms   could   be   had,  [.���������ealizing five per cent.,' and they>were  investments that farmers knew a good  leal about.    Another advocated putting surplus  money into' the banks',  or though the Interest >as low yet  .he money was safe, and could be got  [tt any time.    A third, however, the  Ichest of the  party,  then  gave his  lews, and  he  was, listened  to  with  ttentlon.    "The practice I have fol-  [owed for many years has been, I am  mvlnced,  more  profitable  than any  .ther I could have taken to. .Every  JLme I have found myself with any  urplus money I have Invested, It in  otne way or'obher on the farm.

The, proper. method of'handling or  over-coming hard milking in cows or  heifers is bv the use of a teat plug.  The teats should be .washed with a  germ killer solution and'the teat plug  dipped In the Bame solution, then dipped in a little healing ointment and  passed into the point of'the teat. The  teat plug being self retaining should  bn permitted to remain In the teats  from one milking to another.

-    ^Values Steadily Grow '
There'has -been a very" great advance in the value of farm lands in
both Canada and the United..States
-during the last decade. The report
of tho experts appointed by President
Taft.to investigate conditions in the
two countries in connection, with the'
Reciprocity,' Compact showed thai
th1-""" had been a greater advance in
^tho Eastern Provinces of Canacla thun-
In the, adjoining States of the
American  Union.
The general rise m' the value of
farm lands Is larcjly due to the increased pric-", realized for all kinds

different kinds of eggs,, 'each' of

Those that brought the best price
were "fresh ranch eggs." However
the names arid .prices ranged down

Eggs," "guaranteed eggs," ''good

It will be perceived there are

Possibly they* do not class in the

; According    to ' statistics    recently
published, the number of illiterate recruits in   thev'French  Army   has   attained the astounding total of 14,000.
On the other hand, the German newspapers point with pride  to  tlie  fact
that In  the  whole of  Germany  they
have only 46 illiterates;  that is, recruits   who   can   neither   read   nor
write.    Ten   years   ago   the   number
of illiterates in the German Army was
218.   Going back' another decade, the
number waa 860.,   The French journal
from   which   these   facts   are   taken,
further states that the percentage of
Illiterates   In   the   English   Army   ���
the" last figures available being those
for 1907 ��� showed 1 per cent; France,
