handed in' for publication:
In the'city one   continually  hears
complaints regarding the high cost
of living," afthe-'same time the farm
er considers tEat he does not get
a   fair return for the capital invested in and the labor expended
on his farm;   Enquiries, show -nar

" The latter are generally individuals or firms; with large financial
backing -and: any attempts to knock

This, refers to'any business--catering for the masses.   .'
In Vancouver, there is however,
ample scope[t'oi. a'.high-class business to-supply the wealthy classes, 'who are. willing to -pay top
'prices for the very best but- at the
same time 'would pay -nothing tor'
any articlo that is not often very

"in making enquiries in Vancouver I 'find that the majority! of hotels and restaurants buy.tEeir farm
produce  such as eggs, etc., from
wholesalers;  the flatter, in : purchasing, from farmers make, no distinction  as.regards eggs whether
they' are two days ��� old, or.. .10 days-
old ; on the other., hand the leading
clubs and wealthy residents complain about ihe.difficulty^they have
in   obtaining really fresh eggs   and

Feed  In the Canadian'West where great  heaps of straw, are burned every  season, the cutting of rough'feed is  not a general practice. Nevertheless,  there are many stockmen and dairymen who would not think of. trying  to winter their stock without running their roughage through a cutting  box Not' only is there is a saving  In feed, but also the manure is in  much "more desirable condition for  spreading on the land. I:i addition,  the cut straw makes it possible to  save practically all the liquid manure.  As mixed farming and stock-raising  become more general, the number of  straw outers will Increase. Most  farmers have some kind of power on  the farm that can bo used during the  winter for this purpose. When they  have started, they do not as a rule  give It up.  1 What Water Can Do  ��������� No sooner are the London and,  i Ottawa seasons over than we see am  inouncements cf various more or less  erwut porsonagos departing for some  [OoMtlnentafl or Briton Spa to take tho  iwaters^JSd_ allow, their..system..to j  " It is surely a reflection on our pre-  ;Ben������day "civilisation'' to find that we.  are.still immersed in,', surrounded by,  and suffering .from; an ��������� incalculable  amount'of." illness and disease in every-  "shape and form, says a scientific  writer; who- claims over, feeding is, at  the.root of,'the evil, and suggests a reform ��������� in our dietary, that would  'eliminate disease, and maintain the  averagehuman-frame in sqund health.  Advocating ajtwo-meal-a-day plan,-he  says: '     . .      ,  "If we would only, after rising- In  the morning, wait some two or three  hours, exercise a little, or do some  .work, the whole system would be far  more ready to digest and assimilate  the food; therefore, it would be,Infinitely better* for most of us if ��������� we  would take our first meal at eleven  or twelve o'clock, with nothing whatever before that, unless It be a little  fruit; then wait for somoi six, Beven,  or eight hours before we have our <  second meal; we should thus have1  allowed sufficient time for the organs  of digestion to empty themselves  thoroughly; and be It remembered  again, that it Is not until such organs  are thus emptied of food that actual  Incorporation of food into the tissues  takes place. I must Impress on my  readers it is only that which Is Incorporated, raid not what Is eaten,  which nourishes us.  "This plan of two meals a day  would alone be the means of renovating in the case of many diseases. I  see men and women constantly whom  I know will, sooner or later, have a  fit of apoplexy, simply because their  blood vessels are .over-charged, or  have become degenerate through overfeeding. There are thousands of  deaths'annually due to this cause, and  moat of such are preventable.  |;     sporting-: ;;,, *  '4*    ,     COLUMN.
