In the prairie provinces, we often  find that soil moisture is the limiting factor in crop production, here  in the semi-arid region where irrigation is posible humus becomes the limiting factor in' crop production.  Under mixed farming conditions  each year there is a certain supply of  farm manure to haul on to the land  and no better form of humus can be  obtained, but the amount available is  usually far short of the annual soil  requirements. It is due to these facts  that we have to look for other means  of supplying this much needed element.  The soil at the Experimental Station consists of a light sandy detritus with a gravelly morainic subsoil, totally void of humus and typical of the district.  Thi lack of humus was therefore  one of tho main factors to be considered in arranging the following  crop  rotation.  Four year: Wheat, 0at3, and  Roots. Five year: Wheat, Roots,  Oats,  (seeded to clover)  Clover and  Clover.  In the four year rotation the pea  crop is ploughed under, when the  pods are just forming. Farm manure at the rate of ten tons per acre ia  applied on the oat stubble in preparation  for roots.  Thus in two years out of four humus is supplied in some form. It is  a practice that can be recommended  commercially.  In the five year rotation the soil  obtains the benefit from two years  supply of vegetable matter in thc  clover roots,but no crop is ploughed  under. Farm manure at the rate of  ten tons per acre is applied on the  wheat stubble in preparation for  roots. This rotation involves a more  economical outlay. The statistics  published annually in the government reports will supply the crop1  yielcs each, year.  In order to demonstrate how far  it is possible to grow a profitable  crop without the addition of humus.  An adjoining plot is laid out with  oats and summer fallow alternately.  On the four years rotation an ex-  uv't recount of the amount of irrigation water is recorded. With l.he  increase of humus less water sliould  be required.  With the addition of humus the  soil rapidly darkens and this should  prove an important factor in the ripening of crops, as the darker soil  the more heat is absorbed and the  temperature of the soil is raised.

Gazley i-lall on Tuesday evening  when Mrs. McConkey of Vancouver  addressed a fairly large audience in  which ' the ladies predominated.  Mrs. J. L. Campbell occupied thc  chair and in a neat opening speech  introduced the speaker and her subject.  Mrs. McConkey is a clear and  fluent speaker and showed quite a  grasp of the present political situation. She urged the women now  the vote was granted them, to see  that everyone took advantage of  their opportunity and pointed out to  I hem that in future, should there be  bad government by either party, the  responsibility would have to be  borne by them as well as the men.  She said (licit tho electors themselves  were to blame for thc present state  of affairs as tlie majority of the men  seemed content to stay out of any  of the party organizations and allow  th em to run mostly by those who had  selfish interests to serve or by those  who were seeking their own advancement. She strongly advised co-operation among the different wonmen's  societies in the Province and point-  pel out many different-ways in which  women could help to make political  life purer. She was also greatly in  favor of proportional representation  fuel showed the advantages of this  method of election.  Mr.- J. A. McGowan and Rev. J. L.  Campbell briefly addressed the meeting complimenting Mrs. McConkey on  her work and on the motion of these'  gentlemen a hearty vote of thanks -  ..as extended to her.

' c ���������  ��������� A few years ago when this method of,taxing for tiie poll  tax was mentioned we heard someone say thai 'Unit would be  class legislation'; but the new Act appears to meet with popular  approval. The Brewster government are to be commended for  'bringing such an. Act into force.

With good prospects in sight let tlie growers put the final  touches on co-operation to their own advantage. 'No other  class of men would let the opportunity pass by. Get this fruit  business down to a business basis and the district will prosper.  To be highly appreciated an article must rise in the market  ���������''���������'to a high value.    A few years ago potatoes went begging at  , as 'low as twenty-five cents a barrel.    The market was always  glutted.    The country could not consume the supply and prices  dropped to a figure tooilow..to cover the cost of shipment, much  less culture.  As a consequence the whole section has since fought shy of  the uncertain tuber.    But if agriculture were even a half-way  organized industry, such situations, would be impossible.      No  one part of the Continent is familiar with the activities of other  crop-bearng territories and, as a result, farming is such a blind  gamble that we regularly experience enormous v/aste of laud  and energy.    The Granges, where in existence, h&ve done much  to promote co-operation in the disposal of products, but, however beneficial sane administration has proved in this quarter,  ( far more may be accomplished for producer and community if a  ^sensible regulation of planting were inaugurated and a greater  . equalization of food supplies secured.    Discretion is the better  ���������'..���������part of agriculture, too.  Every community is cursed by a class of people who make it  their business to attend to everybody's business but their own.  ������������������'Such people are the meanest specimens of depraved humanity,  -'".-.fiays an exchange, which the all-wise Providence permits to ex-  ..'-'ist.on this green earth.

If is convenient however to group them into  three large classes: 1. the swamp  and woods mosquito; 2. those of the  jjall. marshes, and Ii. the domestic or  i'ain   barrel  mosquitoes.- '  The swM.mp and woodland mosquitoes emerge early in April; they  are' due now. They rarely' enter  houses, but are a source of great annoyance in- the evening out of doors.  There are two kind of salt marsh  mosquitoes common in this -neighborhood,and both bite at all hours of  the day aiid night. One of thorn is  brown with narrow white bands on  it's feet, fife other has a white band  across its beak, -white bands ' on its  feet, and, a yellowish streak along its  back.  The only way of golfing ri I of  these mosquitoes are draining, (he,  marshes, filling in 'and sprinkling  with crude oil evey two weeks.  About !)0 per cent, of tho mosquitoes that bother us indoors are of  ihe variety known as house i.ios-  quitoes. They bite from Ihe. '"Lvil  twilight fill sunrise.  They are strongly attracted by  light.  enter houses at every opportunity  and enter houses at every opporfun-  Thcy breed in any receptacle conain-  ing standing wafer, and, as ������(hey  travel only short distances, can generally be traced to breeding places  on or close to thc premises. Common danger spots are rain pools, gutters, tin cans, rain barrels, tubs, cesspools  and   obstructed   drains.  No tubs, pails, kegs, buckets, bottles, old cans or empty boxes should  allowed to stand where they may collect water. The roof gutter should  be regularly looked after to see that  it is not obstructed. In factories,  hotels, theatres and public buildings fire pails should be regularly  inspected and filled with clean water  at least every two weeks. All rain  barrels should be carefully screened,  cesspools tightly covered and the  vent   scieened.  At least two diseases are known to  be  spread   by.   mosquitoes���������namely,  Bte=  Your Ad. in This Paper  '.'SJjffir.flrCJQHfflUEBQOTjIQSMMI  -Si  I  'son is sometimes disposed to speak evil of others; and say mean j in^iaria and Yellow fever  things that are without foundation, just to make the- person, feel  small, but this continual knocking of. each other.

The same exchange say:-;, say a pleasant word  to a man whom you do not like, maybe you will never regret it.  It has been proved that malaria is  transmitted only by a certain kind of  mosquitoes, anopheles. These are  common house mosquitoes of this vicinity, and should, by all means, be  exterminated. Remember, no stagnant water, no mosquitoes, no mosquitoes no malaria.  Yellow fever is now known to be  transmitted only by,a certain kind of  mosquito known as stegomyia   (now  Everywhere we go these days we are given to understand.'called  Aedes).

Moreover, mosquitoes seek damp grass  and other shady place to rest during  the day and to escape the hot rays of  the sun.  A teacup of water standing ten  days is enough to breed over two hundred mosquitoes. A bucket of water  may breed enough to infest a community.  Some species of mosquitoes lay  their eggs on the water, others lay  them in the water, and still others  lay them in the marsh mud. All the  eggs out first into "Wrigglers"  and then they turn into what are  called "pupae"'. The grown mosquitoes finally emerge from the pupae  and fly into the air. Both wrigglers  and pupae are readily seen with the  naked eye.  Don't waste time swatting mosquitoes. Prevent thdir breeding by  draining or filling in ponds and puddles, or, if near the sea shore, by connecting the marshes with tidal water,  by emptying cr screening rain barrels, removing all old tins, boxes,  tubs, pails, bottles, broken crockery  and other things which collect water.

O.  \5$r������j  The War Address  JJy Private T. A. Barnard.  On Sunday evening last in the Victor theatre, with Reeve Catherwood  in the chair, an attentive audience  listened while Pte. Barnard���������a . returned soldier of the 47th Battalion,  gave a vivid picture of life at the  front". In simple but yirgorous and  telling language, he described    inci  when he was wounded, related how  the men fighting for hours surged  five times desperately back and forth  to regain their ground; how the  wounded men heaped around them,  dying but unbroken, urged them on  with cries of 'Lusitania!" "The Persia!" "The Arabic!" and in death  called their comrades with courage  to go on.  j Private Barnard related a very  i brave deed.    He was with seven oth-  deats humorous and tragical; and in' ers scouting at night under the corn-  formed his hearers plainly of the  brutality treachery, and savagery  displayed by the Huns.     He begged  mand of Lieutenant Owen, son of  the Rev. Mr. Owen,of Christ church  Vancouver;     they    suddenly    found  his audience to realize what the boys ��������� themselves cut off, a light played on  at the front were doing; that they j thorn from the German lines, and  wore enduring unimaginable things'heavy firing started. To shield  and giving their lives to keep wo-' tho.melves they at once dropped to  men and children safe from German | the ground, and Lieutenant Owen or-  other men who "are willing to make  sacrifices and fight    for    principles.  No tempting plums are    offered    in  the  way of commissions.    The only  lieutenancy in the platoon is held by  Captain E.  E. Jordon, although two  sergents  and  two  corporals  are  yet  to  be appointed.    However the platoon docs make special    appeal    on  several    grounds:   (1.)   It    promises  congenial     companionshrip     during  the voyage overseas and the period of  training in England.     (2.) Arrived at  the battalion base, the    new    men  will be given opportunity of specializing in different branches such    as  musketry,   sniping, ���������  machine     gun,  bombing or bayonet work.       (3.) As  the reinforcements are supposed    to  gc lorward toward the end of April,  and as the facilities for rapid    and  efficient  training at Bramshot    are  especially good, recruits    may    feel  sure of getting to the front    in    the1  shortest possible time and so    doing  their share  to  hasten  the    end     of  the struggle and'to assure    the    decisive triumph of the    Allied    Cause  and   the   ideals   it  represents.     (4.)  The policy of the University is to recommend as many men as possible for  some training at the Royal    School  of instruction, Work Point Barracks,  before the reinforcements are ordered  overseas.    This privilege can be continued for only a week or two longer  Those  who  are  interested  should  make  personal  application  or write  immediately to Lieut. E. E. Jordon,  University of B.

He urged  them also to realize that a continual  supply of men was needed; that no  man in any way fit to servo his  country should be content to let those  others, fatigued and wounded though  ���������'unbroken,maintain for all the burden  of defence and protection.  The speaker, who is a citizen of  New Westminster, was for ten  months in the trenches and has been  wounded nine times; he has served  with some of our Mission boys. He  paid a glowing tribute to the work of  the late Scout Authur Laxton at the  front;  was    with    Joe    McLaughlin  der his men to return with all possible speed to their trench.. While  they escaped he stood up and by fir  inr; his revolver repeatedly .drew the  Herman fire upon himself to save nis  men. Ho fell with nine shots  through, him , giving his life to save  the men entrusted to his care.  At the close of the address the  speaker stated his aim was to raise  fifty dollars for the three war funds;  thc collection falling some dollars  short, various members of the audience promised contributions, leaving  ACCOMMODATION  FOR   RETURNED   SOLDIERS  Building for the Wounded Returned  invalids   Doubled  Since Christmas  More than twice as many disabled  Canadian soldiers are now being  cared for by the Military Hospitals  Commission as were on the roils at  New Year.
