No Small Influence in this Movement  ..(By Charles. W. Stokes)  . Something definite- and sensible lias  at last been accomplished along the  line of agricultural improvement in  -Western Canada in the "formation of  the Alberta- Rural Development^  League, which, came into existence  at a convention at Olds, Alberta, in  the early, part of February.  Everyone knows that" the rural districts of Western Canada are sparsely populated and only very partly de-,  veloped*. and "everyone, concedes the  advantages which must ensue ''With.  the elossr settlement and greater development of all agricultural lands,  especially at the present time, a.hen  * it is. both patriotic and sound business  to bring every possible new acre' under cultivation. But between the attainable ideal and the results to date  of all the'various back-to-the-land and  other"-schemes which have been started there is .^wide gap.  The back-to-the-land idea is almost  coincident, as far as age goes, with  the age of this planet.'

Looking back over  the long list of Utopias which were to  have been created, one is struck by  *i.j_i yotT-gT. t_qtiioKj fac*- that so ___s.nv  of the schemes bailed. A large number of reasons have been found by  writers-on social subjects to account  for this failure; but one reason has  never, I think, been advanced, and it  is probably nearer the root of the  matter. Everybody has always been  urging everybody else to go back to  the land���������nobody has . ever asked  them to come. -   .  The man who is alerady on the laud  has, after all, a considerable interest  in the matter. He is quite as much  affected by the success of any attempt  to cause the closer settlement of the  lands in his vicinity as the busjiness  man in the distant city or the financier in another country. His own  land will eventually be enhanced, in   _.1..~_        L-.A.       XI- ������. X       Z*.       ...������*.       *.*.

These things are  to be had only when there is a sufficiently large r.umber of residents to  contribute.- A thinly populated district is seldom progressive.  If you can get tins changed perspective you will understand that the  farmer is a very important factor. If  he can, too, point to his own success  as a recommendation why ' others  should occupy and cultivate land, you  ^have a much more forcible argument  to put before them. One satisfied" settler is worth a ton or pamphlets���������one  prosperous 'man already on the land,  anxious to get others ' to come and  share his prosperity, has six times  the pulling power,, of the back-to-the-  _.?nd "advocate who, with all his interests in the cities, wants them to  go, >.  IL is therefore, obvious that no  scheme which has for its aim ������he  populating of the broad and fertile  acres of Western Canada should ignore tne possible co-operation *of the  farmers themselves. The value of  their testimony alone is enormous:  and if their actual working assistance  could be secured, so much brighter  would tire- prospects of the scheme  be. And this is exactly what the Alberta Rural Development League, getting a noteworthy precedent, proposes  '. to^'do.  '���������;  The modus operandi is'.ljrloi.y this:  "Settlement clubs" will be "organised  composed entirely of farmers. Every  locality will in timie, It is hoped, have  its own club, taking some arbitrary  area, such as one township, i'pr the  basis. Maps will be prepared by thoso  clubs, sliowlhg whnt vacant lands llo  around them.    Listings of this'-..land  will bo made, and if tho price is satisfactory   and the league Ib canyinced  that a man can mako n living on it,  and tho members are in a position io  recommend it to outsiders and friends  the central offico of tho league Will  see that literature pertaining to that  particular   section   is   prepared   and  circulated.   This literature, taking tho  shape of small -pamphlets containing  moHtly testimony from tho farmers la  tho vicinity, will bo sent out to rola-  TEA-THING' A COM!

Wouldn't  be like going into a strange section���������  Hiram K. would see to that. Let's look  up rates and read a little bit about  that country.   .  The league hopes to command sufficient finances to maintain offices in  the United States, with a human follow-up system, sending its "officials to  call upon the men oh the mailing  list. That may or may not materialize; but it is important to note that  the machinery wnich the league will  create will not be devoted-to boosttn.-  any one district. Every section will  receive its share of attention in proportion to the energies of its Settlement .Club, and the league will concentrate upon the development of the  province of Alberta as a whole.  The would-be home-maker in Alberta is obviously assured, if he gets  into touch with this league, of reliable  information. He deals direct with the  men who is already on the land and  making good, and he finds out the  real truth about the country. The  league has other objects besides this  primary one of settling lands in the  province of Alberta. It schedules'  amongst them its endeavor to effect  a distribution of the population of 'the  province so as to place say 70 per  cent, of ^the people on farms and the  balance in the urban centres���������to secure a better system of agricultural  credits���������to facilitate the transportation and marketing-of farm products  ���������and to extend agricultural education. Anfongst otherv things, it may  be stated, as remaps a, (significant  fact,���������that the Calgary Consumers'  League, which is a combination of the  housewives of Calgajcy to..keep down  the -cost of living, was represented by  its president and executive committee  at the Olds convention of the Rural  Development League.  It remains to say that'the latter  league has a strong executive. In the  person of Gf. U.A Marnoch, president  of the Lethbridge Board of Trado,  it has a president who has already  demonstrated -,the feasibility of linking up thb development of the city  with the prosperity of the farmer. Tho  Lethbridge board of trade's system  of advancing llvo stock to farmers is  proving a success,* and Is becoming  the standard of similar schemes elsewhere. The vice-presidents are H. M.  33. Evans of Edmonton, G. B. Smith of  Camroso nnd F. M. Black of Calgary.  The executive consist of E. L. Richardson and William Georgeson of  Calgary, A. J. Matthews of Modlcino  Hat, 3. II. Smith and A. T. Cushlng  of Edmonton, and Jaineti Speukman  of Pouliokl, president of the United  Farmers of Alberta,  Uxo war were to end tomorrow, there  would still- be need for every effort  in productiveness, for many years  must lapse before 'the devastation  that has been caused can be remedied  or repaired.-^ unhappily, the probabilities are that the giant ^conflict will  continue for many raoiitns yet, in  whicjj case tie mini of man cannot  fathom or foresee the damage that  will have been done to every form of  industry. To agriculture in particular,  by the waf.te of life/ by the wrecking  o������ property and by tiie spres ding oi  desolation. It is in repairing the  damage others cause that the farmers  calls'1 upon to aid. It is their  mother country that cries to tbem.  The agricultural department is not  alone holding conferences a"t many  points in the country,*-but it is engaged in distributing large quantities of  literature telling how the farmer can  best serve the interests of the empire, display his grateful sense of patriotism and' bring profit to himself.  In brief and explicit language, that  all who run may read and understand,  is pointed out the needs of the situation and how those needs can be met.  Above all, tho device is given .o  avoid waste. Everything can be utilized. Nothing need be tbr^wn away  as valueless. The economy of production is in saving.  The wisest can learn something by  reading, and in the Bulletins and Reports prepared and written by experts  and men of praptical science, farmers  will find hints, suggestions and information of the greatest possible value  at this season, and such as will advantage botn their iana and tnemselves  for all time. They will also aid them  in that duty to the empire which is of  such passing and instant importance  that to shirk it is to be criminal.'

How Khaki was Discovered  Young  Officer  Who   Made   Discovery  Becomes a   Millionaire  Khaki, the color of which will render  our soldiers  so  difficult  to  see,  was discovered by a happy accident.  The  British troops  in India wore  a  cotton   uniform, which   when it was''  new, was khaki in color, but after a  visit  to   the   launary   was- indescrib-  ab]e. a Manchester business man, discussing this defect, remarked casually  that a fortune awaited the man who  could    find a khaki dye that neither  sun,  soap  nor soda would  fade.    A  young officer heard the remark, hired  a skilled native dyer! and began his  search.   Years pasted in fruitless experiments, till one day, passing over a  heap of rags, relics of their failures,  they chanced ^ upon one piece which  was   BtilJ, khaki,A thougli   liits   laundry-  had worked Its will.   But it had received no special treatment so far a3  thoy knew, except that it had fallen  into a metal dish;   This was the secret.   The metal of the dish and the  chemicals in tho dye had combined  to produco that fadeless khaki color,  which   makes oi\r.   soldiers invisible  and turned thb lieutenant into a mil-  lionalre.���������Glasgow Times.  Much has been said and done during the last few .years in regard to the  teaching of agriculture in the public  schools, particularly the city high  schools. Iu spite of all this the farmer  remains the same and farms in the  same old way. Is there anything  wrong? If so, where is the mistake?  Should we educate city boys to go into the country and berome farmers, or I  would it be more sensible to educate'  the -country 'boys along agricultural  lines in such a way. that they will  want to remain in the country as  farmers? Why are we teaching agriculture in the city high school? Several excuses are given, but reasons  are few. If agriculture has any business in the city schools, it is .because  many high1 school graduates become  country teachers and because a few  country boys and girls attend the city  schools. Therefore, the course should  be.elective.   .  Doubtless the pedagogical way to  teach a subject is to begin with the  theory and underlying principi__" and  but the agricultural way *to teach  farming is to begin -with the practical  application and then possibly we may  get the theory and underlying principles later: The farmer is practical  first of allvand anything that is going  to have any~ef������ect on vhim must be  practical. He must see, for instance,  that rock phosphate if applied with  organic matter pays. Theories concerning all the chemical changes and  action of bacteria that bring about  these results are so much "rot" to'  him at the present time. We hope,  however, that he may look upon "book  farming" from a different angle* when  he sees that it really has a practical  application.  Why not teach agriculture in the  country schools���������real agriculture���������  not nature study? True, it is said that  attempts to teach agriculture in the  country have so far met with failure.  _Tl.-T p-iT. cp    -i-ATY.

"But tho country  teacher has no laboratory." There ara  farms all about, aud we should uot  make the mistake of thinking that  the substitute is bet.er than the thing  itself. When a profeso-jr in mechanics  wishes to put the finishinj touches  to his course, he takes his pupils into  a reai shop and shows them how  filings are actually done. Dr. Hopkins  o fthe Illinois college of agriculture  finishes his instruction in soil fertility  by taking his students on a trip over  "Poorland Farm."  That the country teacher has not  time, is another objection. If you  were to ask a representative body of  intelligent people how many could  name the bones of their body, or all  the juices poured into it, their effect"  on it, and what it is coiled at different stages; or trace the blood  through, ail the organs of circul������.tlci_  naming and locating all of the valves  of different descriptions, how many do  you suppose could do it? It is doubtful if one in a thousand could? If one  breaks a bone, (Joes he stop to figure  ���������*0-it whether it is his ulna or **'" ���������*���������"situs that .is broken, or does he*get a  physician and have the bone set witlv  out ever thinking of its narao? .If  he has a pain in the region of his abdomen, does he try to locate it in his  illium, or jejunum or transverse colon? He probably takes a dose of pills  and if that doesn't stop the pain, ho  goes to the doctor for some medicine  without knowing but' that the pain  was at the pyloric orifice.  -In a representative body of intelligent people, how great a per cent do  you suppose can give    a recital    of  Grant's manoeuvres in the capture of  Vicksburg    or of Meade';, and Lee's  in the Battle of Gettysburg, or of the  various ca.2spaigns.i__. the French s.s,d  Indian wars, or name    the different  cities on each- side of the Rhine or  the Danube or the Columbia or any  ether   river,   telling   what   each  particular city is -note a for and what industry the-people u~e mostly engaged  in?     The   teacher - spends  days   and  weeks   and  months   teaching    these  things, with v/hat reasons.*' The* excuses are that they train the intellect  or the memory or make better citizens ajid patriots.   Does it train the  :  -moi-y or the intellect to cram a lot  of facts  and  retain  them only long  enough to recito or write im examination on them and then proceed to ������or-  get them?    Or does  forciLg a child  to cram his mind with the movements  of armies and  the  arrangements of  battleships and retain them only until  his immediate need of them is past  make him/a better r������atroit-or citizen?  How much more sensible and to the  purpose  it  would   be  if-  instead  of  spending      so   much   time   on   these  things, the teacher would soend some  of  it  in   teachin'  the  chifd  how  to  make a living for himself and those  dependent upon him.   A man with an  empty stomach and hungry faces at  home" is a mighty poor citizen and no  patriot at all.       >  Why do our educators for the most  part persist in quibbling over theories  instead of teaching the child' something that he can use and that is of  real practical value to him? Such  things surely have as great value in  training the mind and memory as  what they are now teaching. It is  indeed a great tribute to the sturdi-  ness of our race that our boys and  girls develop into men and women in  spite of our systems of education.���������  C. H.

Tn these dnys  when the electorate has a tendency  in many case., to vote for tin* man  rather than the party it seems  lather crude to leginlate* that the  fellow on the firing line should bo  denied that privilege; or in case  f here aro two independent candidal :oh (or more) running to havo  no means of indicating who his  I'l'efcronei.* is for.

Kootenay Ignored  While our language may be a  trifle strong there seems to be no  denying the fact that there is something rotten in the - state of Denmark in the present military situation as it- affects Kootenay.  Since hostilities commenced this  part of British Columbia has provided at least a thousand recruits  for the overseas forces. To expedite matters the 107th East Kootenay Regiment was organized, drill  halls rented in order to train those  desiring to go on active service, as  well as those volunteering for home  defense; Officers have purchased  uniforms, and given freely of their  time and substance to foster the  military spirit,lind in return for all  this laudable activity not.a solitary  tangible token of appreciation has  been forthcoming to date���������not even  uniforms or the rent for armories.  hr the selection of mobilization  centres all the good things have  bacn showered on coast centres. In  the matter of utilizing a Kootenay  citizen soldiery for the protection  of life and property in the Kootenay  not a soldier has been asked for and  not n guard ha:: been posted although most ovory trestle and every  bridge, patt-ioiibtrly along the.main  line, is amply patrolled and guarded. At Grand Forks it has been  deemed expedient to keep on active  service a volunteer company of (10  or 70 men in command of local officers (and a payroll of $2,000 a  month), but in glorious Kootenay,  where we have a big foreign ole-  mont, and a stretch of railway line  and other properties whoro alien  enemies could create considerable  havoc to life and limb, we must  perforce trust in the Lord and keep  our powder dry.  Home   weeks    ago   we    had    thr*  announcement    that,   a   Kootenay  regiment was to be recruited at once  to   be   mobilized  at  some point in  this territory.       (1p to the present  the only definite .news in   this  connection ia thai  nunc (Vol. 'Davis, an  | easterner,    will    be   in- command.  , Nel.'.on, Kin.Ii> and  < 'lauiaoolc have  | been hot foot  after   the authoi itiea  I to name them as   the  mobilization  point, but sile.ice reigns supreme as  to where the aii-Kootenay troops  will be assembled���������_-though there is  a  report   that   New   Westminster  will be selected.  In the matter of choosing officers  for the contingents already gone  abroad the men of -Kootenay have  not been given a square deal, taid  In the selection .of. a head for ths  all-Kootenay corps it is amazing,  to state it mildly ...that no selection  was made of" a Kootenay man.  Certainly we liave ample competent  and deserving bfljeei-s^-tn the  district. ...  The attention of K. F. Greent  M.P., cannot be too strongly called  to the shabby treatment the authorities have handed his constituents  in every direction in military matters since hostilities commenced.  As a matter- of common courtesy  we are entitled to much better consideration, and���������-well."from a vote-  getting standpoint Mr. Green will  find all the time spent on the responsible officials, to get for the  people of the Kootenays their fair  share of the good things in this  line, one of the most effective arguments for the campaign he is likely  to be undertaking shortly.        ,  Business Confidence  The return of B. A. Spoors to  business life in Creston is one of the  niOBt gratifying signs of, the times  in the Valley.  Sam has had a whole year practically to size up tho business possibilities of various parts of tho province and after a protty oaroful investigation his dooision to stick to  Creston is protty satisfactory evidence that tliere aro quite a Pew  years of good business left in the  district yot.  It is possible, of course, that he  hnr; made a nn.-lau'i-, being but  human, but even the rankest pessimist will admit that when it comes  to sizing up a propositign S. A. has  a knack of turning things inside  out and upside down rso that should  there be any doubtful features to be  reckoned with they are not liable lo  be overlooked in the examination  for discovery.  While norma.) conditions are not  ilisl  around the  corner, evidenee   i������  not lacking- that they are not many  blocks away. Already in some  lines^ there is a quite noticeable  change for .the better. .  While it is a pleasure to welcome  Mr. Speers into the business circle  once more the feeling is tinged with  genuine, regret that Creston is  liable to part company with T. J.  I_ancaster. He has been a good  eitizen and a type of business man  that any town cannot have too  many of.'- Those who know him  will not hesitate*, to endorse ' the  opinion of a citizen who remarked  tliat "He io as straight as a string  no matter ho\v you take him," and  wherever he may locate Mr. Lan-  ca-ster will have the best wishes of  Creston citizens generally for a full  measure of���������. prosperity and happiness, and many years of it.

Assistant Ao-rtaciidFralt Inspector *'  , Creston, B.C. ,        Telephone 61  Hcine-rviade  Lime-Sulphur  Spray  Formula: Fresh unslacked lime, 50  pounds; Pulverized sulphur. 100  pounds; Water to make 40 gallons.  Preparation: Put lime in cooker  and add sufficient water to start it-  slacking well, then add sulphur, continue adding sufficient water to keep  lime cflaking and to make a fairly thick  paste and keep stirring the mixture.  When the slaking .is finished add water in excess of the desired voiurae, say  about five gallons in excess, and start  boiling. Some excess of volume should  be maintained until just before the  finish of the' boiling. Boiling should  be continued until sulphur granuals  are dissolved. This should take about  one hour of vigorous boiling, throughput which stirring should be continued.  Made as above the concentrate will  average slightly over 1.24 specific grar  vity, or about 28.5 baume, ahd for  summer spraying should be diluted in  the proportion of about 1 in 35.  Sprays of any desired density may  be obtaine'd from - any concentrate, by  simply getting the .density of the con-  _.ra*.-^^<-���������   -js^s-ai..-..'  i.i__ J__i *    -���������"������������������'* :_  ���������w__.���������...a,������/v   u.**iu*-^. uu-o ucuiutu   ui ulna  reading by the .decimal of the spray  desired, and making the dilution indicated. For example, If the reading'of  the concentrate is 1.27 (about 31 degrees Baume ) to get a spray of"1.03  density we divide .27 by .03 and obtain  9. This is the total dilution required  and is obtained by adding 8 volumes  of water. The density of the concentrate is first obtained by means ~of an  hydrometer having a specific gravity  eno|a(  To determine.number of dilutions:  Decimal of concentrate divided by decimal of spray desired equals total dilution. - 1.24 divided by 1.03 equals 8.  This means that the concentrate testing 1.24 is to be dilated 1 to 8 (total) to  get a spray which' should test 1.03.  In spraying with lime-sulphur in the  spring of the year it is desirable to'add  Black j_r_af jbQ to the lime-sulphur for  the control of aphis (1 part of Black  Leaf 40 to 1000 parts of lime-sulphur).  Arserate of leadlfnay also be added for  the control of leaf-eating insects (2 lbs.  arsenate of lead to 40 gallons of spray.  Self=3oiled Lime Sulphur  This is a spray ni'ade from the same  materials as the regular lime-sulphur  spray, the difference being that in the  self-boiled lime-sulphur is broughtinto  solution only'by th. heat of the slaking lime, no other heat being applied.  This results in but a small amount of  sulphur going into solution, and in a  relatively large amount of sulphur and  free lime as a sediment.  Self-boiled sulphur lime is of value as  summer spray for plants with tender  foliage, such as plums, peaches and  cherries.  Preparation: Start 10 pounds of  fresh lime slaking in a barrel and when  the lime has begun heating in good  shape add 16 pounds of flour of sulphur,sifting the sulphur in and stirring thoroughly with the slaking lime.

AStlHSsrongerSocialistViev^ !  Editor Review :  Sir,���������If 'the man who wrote the  article in your last, issue and signed  "Observer" is a Socialist his opinions  are only one-man power, and he is  taking liberties in voicing his views as  representing the sentiment of the  Socialist party.  A man who writes a letter attacking*  a person or a party should have the  courage to publish his. communication  over his own name.  The only difference tho Socialist see  between the old parties is that the  Conservative-* are in power and the  liiberals are out and want to get in.  Whichever party has held the reins of ���������'  gbv^i'nmeut in the past has represented Capitalism ably and efficiently, and  since, to quote "Observer," the onls*1  real political fight is between Socialism and Capitalism, Socialism is equally opposed to both old parties. ���������������������������-.���������  If no Socialist candidate is put forward in this ridin|?(in the coming election any Socialist: who votes will mark  his ballot on the strength of the personality of the cnndiVlftte. not 'because  of his political affiliations. Thanking  you for space.        Wm. B. Embbuh.  The Liberal View  to me if there is no Socialist candidate  running, the sane Socialist will mark  his ballot for the Liberal candidate.  Certainly under Liberal rule those  principles-for which the Socialist battles could fare no worse than they have  at the hands qf the McBride-Bowser  combination ; by uniting their- forces  with those of Liberalism they could  reasonably expect much consideration  were the Liberals to triomph.  So far as the Conservatives are concerned Socialists know just about what  legislation to expect. An alliance,  with the Liberals could be no worse;  should jbe better���������and half or part of a  loaf is better thon no bread at all.  Oftentimes reforms come quicker by  working in with rather than against  either of thejold par.ties. A perusal of  their platform will convince that the  odds in this case are ony the side of a  ���������'���������'nii'-rtnerehip with LiberaHsu..

', ,"  *-I would -l'Uther try to blutf a cyclone, or to argue with a West Coast  earthquake,'' he murmured, and  driving on, he, two days later, made  his appearance at a little town some  distance away, whence-.he'took the  eastward-bound train, and finally arrived in New York, where he lived in  good style for a time, having apparently plenty of ready money, then  tried "to speculate on Wall street, and  a couple of weeks later was-' trying  to get a job down by the  docks.  Paying bini no more attention, Eira  rode-swiftly on across the broad  prairie. There was no trail, but the  position of the sun gave her her direction, and she knew if she kept  straight on she would presently come  to the Athens trail, at a point where  two or three farm trails met and  made one better and more sharply defined to town. She was not very much  afraid so far, for; she could be in  Alliens in a couple of hours, and there  she'could teli her story to the sheriff,  to the minister, to the hotel and store  keepers, and other leading men; if  necessary, till every one should know"  that the two strange negroes who  might be suspected of the dreadful  crime committed at Bryan's farm  were in reality white men disguised  ih order to spy on old Noah Siddle's  experiments.  This seemed to her simple enough,  but as she rode she became conscious  of a faint murmur, of a sound, ih the  air that was above and beyond the ordinary sounds of the. full life of the  prairie. At first she was hardly conscious of it, but it grew louder, and  persisted till it forced itself on her  attention, and presently it seamed to  her that this distant sound, like nothing she had ever heara before, haa  in it a nota that was sinister and  threatening. Locking far ahead, as  she came to a spot where the prairie  rose a little, she perceived a long  way in front of her a something that  was like a moving cloud on the face  of the earth. She thought at first "it  must be a storm, and the sound she  heard that, ot thunder in the distance,  but the sky above was serene and  cloudless, and the soft breeze blew  gently.  A touch of fear came to her, and  she increased her speed. A rooc!  horsewoman, she had "not overridden  her mount, and it responded at once  to the call she made. At a gallop she  went on along the hard, springy earth  of the trail, the best going in tho  world in fine weather. Ever as she  drew nearer to the distant object, the  sound of it increased; and as It grew  nearer, so it grew more distinct, till  at last she knew it was a crowd of  men, mounted, on foot, in buggies or  waggons, coming quickly on.  A crowd of men going hither and  thither in a big city is a sight little  impressive; a crowd gathered together anywhere for any purpose has nl-  ways its significance; but n crowd Jn  lonely placos come hither i'o_ one  common purpose, is a sight dAiuiiiuK  and impressive beyond most. Not the  senseless ronr of the storm, not the  wild fury of the seas, or even tho ap-  pulling Bolitudo of the vast mountain  rniigos, hits a quality so impressive  as thnt possessed by a crowd of men  animated by ono common\purposo and  seeking ono common end.  Whon at lust Eiiu uuduiHtood what  tills crowd was, and what its probable  purpose, she rclnctl in her horao and  eat considering.  Tho erowd was noon so noar that  she could sec and even recognize tho  foremost of tho nioii forming it. In  front of all drove in a light buggy one  whom sho know woll���������a dark, flerco  men,     with flaming eyes,  who  was  JUUior   KIT:.....  Wlion his Ill-omened glance fell on  her, a .'nuinou panic took hor, und ulic  turned her horse's bond, and galloped  hack down the trail towardu hor  gnindl'atbor'n farm, without pausing to  think whether this was qulto the wisest thing to do.

What awful thing  would happen when they got there?

Would it pause to off or  its victims even the semblance of a  chance to defend themselves?

On the other hand,  a country like Denmark, which has  adopted co-operation in gathering and  marketing her produce, has prospered  enormously. That little country exports immense quantities of eggs,  butter, bacon and other produce to  Britain and other countries, while our  great agricultural country is'forced  to import eggs and butter.  That there is an immense market  for all the eggs we can produce goes  without saying. There is first our  local market, capable of taking the  eleven or twelve million dozen"which  we import each year. There is then  the great out-ide markets. Great  Britain alone consumed in 1914 eggs  valued at ������24,500,000, of which ������10,-  500,00 were imported. Russia sent the  largest number of eggs, naxt came  Denmark followed by practically all  the countries n Europe.

Forage   Crops  Always  Yield  Several  Profits to the Farmer     A*  At this time when the farmers are  urged to increase the amount produced on their farms, it is bur- first  duty to consider what "crops give ths  best profits. By the term profits are-  understood not only the Value of the  yield directly and indirectly, but also-  the value of the residue left in the  soil and the condition ' of the SOiL  From this ptandpqint it is clear that  crops such as clover, alfalfa and corxt  are much more profitable than whea������  or oats. These crops have been call-.  ed the "five profit" crops, inasmueb.  as they give five profits where wheat  gives one. Let us look for a minute  at the five profits^' They, are (l)-the  crop itself; (2) the products���������mill^,  butter, beef, eggs, pork or horse power ,  ���������-"that can be manufactured from^the  crop; (3) the manure; (4y the preparation.of the land for a crop of grain;  and (5) the distribution of work: and  income.  With re������H������i"������_ tn the value of- the  crop itself, mostfarmers win, acknowledge that clover, alfalfa or corn crop  is at least as valuable as a wheat or  oat crop. It is, however, the jhigh.  value of the clover, alfalfa .or .corn  crop when fed to stock ana naanu-  facured . into milk, beef, .pork,, etc.,  that .commends, these crops to'the attention of the farmer. The profits in.  this -connection, are usually high, and  the 1-tbor involved can be mostly arranged for at times which would  otherwise be largely unoccuied. .  Again, the valua of the manure  arising from the feeding of clover and  corn crops and the manufacture of  "milk, beef, pork, etc., is very high.  It is computed that four-fifths of this  plant food, that is fed is returned in  the manure.  The chief difference, however, between such crops and grain crops lies  in the condition of the land after harvest. We all know-how clover" and alfalfa enrich the soil in nitrogen and  humus, and how the culvitation given  the corn saves moisture; and ..kills'  weeds. As a matter of experience  giain crop, and corn or roots to a good  clover oralfalfa crop. In other words,  corn, 0-.over, and alfalfa prepare the  land for a crop of grain, and are of  the greatest value when grown in rotation with the grain crops.  Finally, the growing and feeding of  corn, clover and alfalfa make fo:  economy on farms. Their use makes  it possible foi* a distribution of-labor  over ths whole year instead of over a  portion of -the year, with the result  that work is done more efficiently and.  at less cost. Besides, the business  becomes largely a cash bftsiness,-with  money coming in at ail times of the  year, with the result that the -necessary buying can be done more cheaply than is done on credit.  While, therefore, not discouraging  the production of wheat and oats we  should remember that in permanent  agriculture other crops are often far  more yalauble, yielding as they do  several profits instead of one.���������Quebec Journal of Agriculture.

The close of the  year fountf on hand in Hong Kong and  Shanghai a total of about 7,800 chests  as compared with 14,375 chests at the  close of the year previous and upward of 30,000 chests at the close of  1912.

Cereal Crops on Experimental Rearms  Cereal production has occupied an  important position, in the work of the  experimental farms since their inception some twenty-eight years ago. By  selection,- the best varieties of grains  for Canadian conditions, have been  brought to light and by breeding many  important sorts have been .produced.  Pioneer wheat, a new early sort possessing many merits gives premise of  filling an important place in northern  sections. The results in 1914 with this  and other sortsl of wheat, as ~well as  oats and barley at the Central Farm  and sixteen branch farms and stations and two sub-stations are presented in Bulletin No. 81- o������ tne Experimental Farm series. This seasonable  pamphlet is available at the Publications Branch, Department of Agriculture, Ottawa.  Teething Time Troubles  Babv's teething time is a period of  anxiety for mothers unless "baby's  stomach Ib kept sweet nnd his bnwnlR-  regular". No othe"r medicine has been  found so valual-li. during tne*hinE  time as has Baby'.- Own - Tablets.  They make teething painless and by  their use baby gets his teeth so easily that the mother scarcely knows  they are coming. Concerning the Tablets, Mrs. F.
