C, lectured to an interested audience  that practically' iilied every seat of  the Victory Theatre on Thursday .evening last. The Rev. A. C. Mc  Diarniid, in introducing the speaker,  took occasion to inform the pubMc of  the splendid work of the local poul-  . try ossociation laying particular  stress on the fact that special efforts  had been made to get tho school  children, interested in poultry cult-  ' ure. Mr. McDiarmid expressed himself as being proud of the results already obtained in this direction.  Prof. Lunn had with him a large  number of really excellent lantern  slides, each one of which was explained in detail. A tribute was paid  to the specialized development of the  poultry industry he had noticed ou  his visit through the district that day  Commenting on this the speaker said  it was an unmistakable evidence that  the majority of poultry men had passed trie experimental stage and had become fully convinced .a good living  could be made from poultry. In his  opniion the poultry industry was a fa  safer branch of farming than any  other, although it needed the class of  man who would stick to it all *.he  time and attend to the necessary detail work with unfailing regularity.  Referring to the question of egg production, the speaker said 150 eggs per  annum per bird was a good average  The early matured bird, wouid. generally speaking be found to Le the  most profitable, as experiments made  proved it to be the earliest layer and  would continue for a longer period  than the Jater hatched bird. Prof.  Lunn saw no reason why Mission  should not become the centre of the  poultry industry in B.-C. The climatic conditions wore the bosi in Canada and it only remained for the  breeder to give the same intei'igcncg  to^ the industry in order to make a  success. ���������  A hearty vote  of thank3 brought  tho mooting to a close, with many expressions that Prof. Lunn would visit  he city again in the near future.  .15) M��������� Residence Phoiie  JB33B!  meantime it is not washed away. No  work can be too costly to save this  beautiful island from going down the  Fraser river where when dredged out  at the mouth would be of no value  to this district. They have enough  land down there anyway.  June the 18th judging by the present warm weather will be'a good time  to see Nicomen Island in its greatest  danger from flooding this year. Tlie  season is late and with the rising of  the river in the course of the next  ten days of warm weather it should  be getting quite'lively around the Island.  It is hoped that the advertisement  means that something is to be done  to make this Garden of Eden a mors  comfortable place to live in.  Report reached town this week  that there was a big rustle after men  on Monday evening last to work on  protection work. Some work has been  carried on for some weeks, but progress was not being made fast enough  should there be high water tnia year.  As has been pointed out there is  rio doubt about the fertility of this  soil. It is the best in the country,  and the government,���������both governments���������would be well advised to protect it. Mission City people are very  anxious to see this island put in a  more safe condition as it is one of  the districts which is considered tributary to the town and for this reason  and other neighborly feelings the government that hurries up the work will  make many friends here.

There is room for improvement indeed, and in saying so there is no intention of  throwing a sly dig at any one oi: our public  men who devote their time to municipal politics     Our road system is not right, and the  best of "it is we all know it.    Thee is something that is overlooked in our roixl building  thai/does not make for permanency.       What ,  is it?.  ; Roads in the Fraser Valley are h������,rd to build  so that they may be kept in repair at all times  of the year on account, of the rains of the wet  season. New roads are in demand as new set  tiers come in. The municipalities have not  enough money to build the roads fast enough  and that is probably one reason why the road  question is such a hard problem throughout  the Fraser Valley���������and tlie soil is made more  for producing than for road buiidlng.  ' Each new settler who .demands a voad is of  value to the country and the ^.iv-ernmcnt.  ought to help the municipality in its road  building.  Sometimes when we read some of. the papers in regard to governmeat cr.jriciym we  fail to sec what is good in our Oliver government���������the government that slipped into, power without the consent of the peopK. To make  itself secure in the hearts of the people..the.  present provincial government shorul appeal  to the people. True the present members were  elected by the vote of part .of the people, but  the policy of the Brewster government as we  understand it today and also, at the rime.of the  election, was much different than that put into  actual working today.. The one,big cry at the  election time was 'no more patronage' but ���������  THAT IS NOT THE POLICY of the Oliver  government, who lias worked the patronage  ��������� bugaboo so strong that today one former supporter of the.Liberals,^is now sore at another-  former supporter, Why? Because of the policy of giving government jobs. We fmd it  in.

There is nothing more  'true than.the,statement that the business that  is left to its own devices does not take long  "to-drop out'ofcthe  processsion.    It is only  through -everlasting .watchfulness   and   care  that successful houses are able to retain -their  positions. - ,  In modern business���������in . 1019���������patronage  must be brought to the goods, on the premise  that the goods cannot be taken to the people.  Most persons follow the lines of,least resistance in .buying things, going or sending then-  orders to those companies and those addresses that have been stamped on their minds  by one means or another.  Here is where the advertised business gams  its advantage. Men and women of the-present day are too busy to take time searching  for a place to spend tlieir money. Tho place  that puts its goods and its name and its ad  dress bofre these  sityers in the-.most direct,  forceful and-interesting way gets their patronage; you can't get away from this fact.  And the-most direct, forceful and interesting  -,way to do this is to employ good printing and  better advertising.  issue   O  th  n������  jtion.  The report, that, every effort u; r;et men to  work on the Nicomen Island dyke should be  good news to all who want to see -he district  prosper. No finer land in the Pre ince of B.

There is always tlie open question of the incorporation of Mission City. A committee  should be appointed to go fully into the matter  and make.a thorough report to b.-.- placed,before the people for their considerarion, and if  on mature consideration.of the re-ort it is  found that incorporation' would .spell greater  success to the town than under, the present  system we should get busy   and   Li corporate  The journalistic graveyard of the. province  during the couple of years before the war and  during the. war-becume filled to a: greater extent-than during ai y other period, probably, m  the history of the province.

Air Ministry in general, the mt-  ,teorological in particular and Lieut.  jGuy Harris, F.R.M.S., R.A.F., specifically.  :< Lieut. Harris arrived in St. John  ��������� recently, the only passenger on  board the Canadian Pacific Steamship Montcalm. He is. the commander of the Atlantic upper  air investigation expedition which  under the control of the ��������� Royal  Air Ministry will chart every  air current and make the air.  ��������� route across the Atlantic as sure and  safe as the water pathway. Weather  news bureaus will also be inaugurated to furnish up-to-the:secomi information regarding all aerial conditions  i A representative of the press visited the vessel and examined the special apparatus with which she was  fitted for the experiments. At first  Bight it seems to be simple enough,  for it consists only of winches, 'ire,  hox kites, and a meteorgraph, but the  meteorgraph is itself a complicated  and intricate instrument, and kiteflying for scientific purposes it not  quite the schoolboy fun that many  people imagine it to be.-The kites  used are of three types, and the largest of these, which measures roughly,  8 ft. by 6 ft., exerts a pull in a  strong wind sufficient, to strain the  holding power of four men.  Besides the box kite there is a  crown kite, 16 feet long and 12 feet  high, with a main plane and two  keels; the keel kite is smaller and is  used mostly as a pilot kite to assist  tho others up.  There are two winches, one placed  on the foe'sie deck for use when the  wind is aft, and the other for use  when the wind is ahead or abeam, is  to be sent off on the gun platform in  the stern of the ship. By these mean3  the mooring cables which are of fine  steel wire very similar to marine  sounding cable will be kept clear of  rigging and derricks whatever may  be the angle from the ship at which  the kite Is flying.  When tha soundings are taken two  kites are attached to the cable-end  a pilot of light make and 400 feet  behind it one of the bigger box kites  carrying meteorgraph. The air currents and varieties of atmospheric  pressure vary in layers upwards, and  soundings can be taken up to a  height of four or five miles. The  meteorgraph, a comparatively small  instrument combining three devices  in one, records at the same time, by  pen points marking a chart on a revolving drum, the humidity of the  air, atmospheric pressure,-and, the'  speed of the wind, all factors of the  utmost importance in the consideration of flight.  If the soundings experiments made  from the Montcalm are successful a  number of ships will be fitted forthwith with similar gear to that which  she is to carry. Soundings in great  numbers will be taken, and tho information obtained will be distributed  by wireless from ship to ship, and to  dtations in London,  Lisbon,  the Az- j  (1) Lieut.

There is  also to be an immediate station or. a  battleship cruising on a definite area  between Newfoundland and the Azores. Those are the points at which  it has already been-decided by thj  ministry to establish ports of call for  cross Atlantic air traffic. At each  there will be repair shops, spare  parts, stores, and petrol for refuelling the aeroplanes. The type ot  machine to be used will bo a "fly-in?;  boat" and thus when the proposed  method of gathering news about weather conditions is in full working order, and when in a month's time official cross Atlantic flight by aeroplane begins, as it is hoped it will.  pilots will be able to have their machines overhauled to "refill," and to  ilton and other members of the ship's  staff everything worked out remarkably well. It is a far different  tiling, he stated, to fly a monster kite  from a moving, lurching ship than  it is from the steady ground. It is  very difficult to get the k������to away  from the ship, and for a long timo  he had to puzslc out a method of  getting thc recording instruments up  to the kite after the asconi had been  successfully made. .
