SII  rilllMTDV  CAN  COUNTRY  TOWN BE  SAVED  FROM   DECLINE  Prof. A. R. Mann, of the New York State College of Agriculture,  A Careful Observer, Considers the Problem in the Community Aspect, in an Article for  the Banker-Farmer  By country town we mean the rural  village, town or city that depends  primarily on its agricultural background, that lives largely on the surrounding country. It is the settlement  of a few hundred or a few thousand  persons, hemmed in on all sides by  farms and reached from all directions  by roadways that lead out into the  open country and over which much of  its trade travels. The question bf the  ���������relation, of this settlement to its land  basis, to its trade area, is* now, recognized as one of the immediate issues  ������������������������������������������.     _-_*--11 v. i ���������_���������*._     11 f _f__    ���������������_���������*������ /-.o *!*���������<-. co  Muck of the traditional separation  between town and country is due to  ���������what we may call natural causes, re-  resulting from the conditions under  which the towns have developed. The  town hag its separate political organisation,, its. own government, its own  enterprises to support by taxation!  from within, and it has been interested mostly in its own development by  ���������y 'attracting trade, seeking tb establish  urban'���������''industries., and elierisbing* an  ambition to-become a third-class city.  The corporation line has been a  boundary ���������between/town and country,  ���������with the tide of trade flowing from  the  country  id  the  town  Svithout  a  . ^.counter-balancing movement from the  town otit into the country to develop  its resources land foster its life- The  resources of the country have built up  the trade of the town; and the public  .',.. Improvements A resulting from this  wealth have been largely applied to  the betterment of the town itself. The  . material resources of the country have  crossed the boundary into the tow:*;  and now for some time tho human resources,--good' farmers, h'aveybeen contributed to the upbuilding of the town.  Not infrequently they;- too, have become toSvn-centered stud neglectful of  the interests Of the farms which gave  : inem their ...competence. The farmer  Jias come to feel that the townsman  Js  selfisk-^-that he  seeks  the  major  their color from the type of farming  that goes on about it- The interests of  town and country, while in somo measure opposite, are essentially one; their  commercial life is largely one. The  business interests���������the merchant, the  banker, the manufacturer, and all the  rest���������must become alert to the necessity for creating fair and adequate relations with tbe lnnd copulation, in  their own trade area in'the interests  of their own greatest ultimate gain.  But again, equally important from  the country standpoint, is the fact  that the open country cannot develop  |Red Gross Appeal ,1irni_TnMir,'DlikACANC.WIiDli IM -PHUT  ���������fr_r_.    i~h������������     _ri1_lWtl_V|%_  SPONSIBLE Fl  any substantial and permanent com  munity life apart from a town or village centre/ We may say what we will  about the open country having its  own community life apart from the village; but it never will, except for an  occasional -specially inspired and usually short-lived example. The farmer's community centre will he where  he trades; and that is where his community life and spirit will head up. If  a school or a. church out by the roadside is made a A real ���������community centre, where there is vital community  life, it will soon find itself surrounded with stores, blacksmith shop, post  office, houses; and a village will have  sprung up. "- The farmer's community  life will be found in the place where  hey must of necessity go frequently  and a -where he will: meet other farmers; and he is too busy to go often  to a place that is off his beaten path of  trade. We shall have to accept the  fact that whatever genuine community exeprience the farmer has he will  get at the cross-roads of his trade, in  the town.  y If we accept this as true, then, the  program for the development of town  and cbuntry together must A include,  first of all, better A co-operative business and commercial relationships;  hut it must ei-teiid -.beyond!' these and  must affect the attitudeA of the schools,  the churches, the libraires, and most  Help For the Soldiers Who Are Waging a Great War For  Justice  Our country, with its Allies, is waging a great war for justice, tor the  protection of small nations in the enjoyment of their rights, for continued  and growing freedom, and for the  maintenance of it. pledged word of  honor.

Canada's part in the process of payment, through giving for  Red Cross work, is mercifully light  and easy, even when all have given to  the extent of really feeling it.  The soldiers and sailors pay the  price exacted by the desolating struggle from week to week. What they  paid in blood and did in sacrifice a.  month ago was not enough for them.  Shall we say it was enough for us ?  What they are doing and suffering and  achieving have put aside, for the time,  all: their thoughts and plans foi- individual : welfare, comfort and safety.  They don't hesitate to establish precedents. But they, are precedents of  heroic sacrifice for our country and its  cause, foi* our principles and ideals  that they may be upheld.  Farmers, individually as well as  throughy their institutes, clubs and  cheese and butter factories, are in a  position to help very greatly.

Justice Hunter makes it plain that the  provincial game laws do not apply  to Indians. In other words, the  local Siwashes can kill big game,  fur-bearing animals and game birds  all the year round, provided they  always confine their hunting  to the reserve during the various  close seasons the white man is corn-  Dei, ed t,o rp-sjtiAnf,.  X���������" *7*    ��������� -X :   According to the chief justice the  power to -regulate the Indians in  this matter (so long as they stick to  the reserve) is vested solely in the  Dominion goverrsnent, just the  same as the matter of bringing intoxicating liquor on to the reserve  is within the purview of the federal  authorities only.  In concluding   his   finding   the  learned Judge lays down the law  that the only way the local legislature can   remedy   matters   is   by  appealing to the powers- at Ottawa  to enact such  amendments  to the  Indian  regulations  to provide the  necessary protection to the provincial game birds and animals-  While it is not pretended that  the   Indians   respected  the   game  laws anywhere near as religiously  as the white man, at the same time  up to now he has  had a s_3ni-ssri=  ous regard  for the  penalties made  and provided in case of its infraction,   but   now   that   the highest  conrt in the province hss established his right  to shoot at  any time  and with no restrictions as to quan-  ties taken, so long as he operates on  the reserve, there is no telling what  notions some of them may take.  And so far as the Valley is concerned some of the local Indians  appear to think all the open country adjacent to their bailiwick is  their reserve. Coupled with this is  the antipathy of most people to  prosecuting Indian offenders in-the  courts, and the difficulty of securing the evidence necessary to ensure  a conviction.  While some may think  the  observance  of game  laws  is  not   a  matter worth worrying the Indians  with,  The Review cannot see it  that   way.      If   there   are   to be  special  privileges   in  this   respect  they should be on behalf of the  men who are  making the country.  The Indian  is no more entitled to  kill game on  the reserve than  a  rancher has to shoot it on his farm.  The sooner our Indian  friends -are  compelled  to  look for a livlihood  from such of the white man's activities as they can adapt themselves  to the better  for  both  the Siwash  and   the   country at large.    And  one of the minor moves, possibly,  to bring about- this desired stato of  crates in 1914 has every promise of at  least 70 this year. This, Mr. Adlard  accounts for on the score that the  average individual berry is almost 75%  larger���������-and there are more of them.  What is needed to assure the very  highest yield is nice dry weather. No  more rain is needed to ensure a red  letter strawberry crop,  Raspberries are equally promising..  At Adlard's a three-quarter acre, patch  a third of which is three-year vines  and the balance two year old,a modest  estimate is a yield Of 125 crates. A  year ago these same trees were only  good, fori 40 crates. At Truscott's a  patch of trees set out in 1913 which  last year gave 5 crates is expected to  show 40 crates this yerr if weather  conditions are average, while at  Stocks & Jackspn's the area of Cuth-  berts which in 1914 sent not quite 200  crates to market now looks good for  over 600���������and the season is at least  two weeks in advance of last year.  The Truscott bi others have a- fow trees  of blackberries that look promising at  the present time.  Currants couldn't possibly look better, in both the black and Red varieties. Mr. Adlai-d looks for a jump  from 24 to 40 orates as compared with  1914. At Stocks & Jackson's they  are so heavy and the bushes more  numerous that a guess at the yield  would be difficult, while Truscott's  would seem modest in estimating their  crop at 6 or even 8 crates as compared  with 2 last season.  In this little section though ''leaf  curl" made its appeasance, there is  quite a nice showing of peaches even  on the trees where the "curl" was  very bad. At Stocks & Jackson's the  pest was worst on the Triumph but  due, possibly to splendid cultivation,  the leaves only were affected, the  trees of this variety carrying quite a  nice showing of good looking fruit.  The "curl" did not effect the Crawford  Early, due to heavy spraying.   At the  affairs is to cut off the game supply  except during the regulation open  H'.'UKOllS.

The pear trees are all well loaded,  Flemish Beauty and Bartletts being  strong���������fully fifty percent better than  1914. ;  Plums! Well, last year where 75  crates was the total crop, 1915 will run  well up to 200 crates. The Washington ahd Bradshaw are very heavy  with Maynards' average���������not quite so  well loaded as the other two.  Cherries are decidedly promising  with this firm. The Black Tar Tarian's  could not comfortably carry much  more fruit. The Bing has an average  display, while the Dyehouse sour cherry is equally prominent. Later varieties suffered from the effects of the  end-of-April snowfall.  Here's the apple outlook in a nutshell in the area under discussion,  Messrs. Turner, G. Hobdea and Trus*.  cotts* report the outlook for a 30%  lighter crop. Mr. Adlard will have the  same quantity to market as in 1014,  while with Stocks & Jackson the increase will be from 1000 boxes in 1014  to at least 2500 and more likely 8000  this year. 1914 saw the Mcintosh,  Wagner, Blue Pennain and Wealthy  to tho fore, and this year tho Wealthy  and Mcintosh are very much in evidence along with the Duchess. Ontario, Ribston Pippin, King; and tho  Wagner. For a nice, even, well-  balanced, healthy-looking showing  of apples the Stocks & Johnson ranch  may bo equalled this year but it would  sure be hard to heat; but, really,  to apprcicato it go out and hoo it for  yourself. Crab apples appear to be  pretty much as last year. The power  sprayer was at work on this placo,  making two visits and it_ Hprinkling  of lime sulphur 1-80 and ,1-40 scorns to  havo been very efficacious.

Clover is considerably heavier than  last year. Just now Stocks & Jackson  are cropping three, acres to mangolds  that will be put into alfalfa next sea-  sen. On account of cold wet weather  corn is coming on rather slowly.  Contrary to general expectations  this has been quite a favorable, year in  the beekeeping section of -Stocks &  Jackson's activities. By using a double  wall hive the bees have been well protected against the cool damp weather,  and are really farther ahead than at  this time last season.' A year ago they  were tending 14r hives-; while at present  22 are to be seen. Their apiary last  year gave them close to 1,500 pounds  of honey, but 1915, unless all signs fail,  will eclipse those figures considerably.  Owing to the high price of feed and  poor demand the hog raising branch  of the farm work has not been���������a-  money maker1, though a good year for  raising young stock. Some export  business in live hogs has been done  this spring by the firm and despite its  present unprofitableness they propose  staying with it quite heavily. Mention  of their dairying is superfluous. The  herd, while not being enlarged, is  kept well up to Mountain View standard of excellence which is quite a factor in keeping the firm's dairy produce,  which is Mrs. Stocks' specialty, in  great deipand in many Creston homes.  And speaking of ranch sidelines, as it  were, Mr. Adlard's poultry keeping  should not be overlooked. We have  material for an.article on the subject  which we hope  to produce next issue.

Telephone 61  Live Stock on Fruit Farms  Rearing the Heifer  The important thing  is to keep the  n@i_.Gi'    gF������iYV___g.      xj. Snu    is a ic___    Ca.11  she can   go to the  pasture the   next  spring, while if she is a late winter or  for bpr to  ..������._....������.calf it will ..be best-  remain in the barn until the following  spring.   Give her .some'grain   all the  time, also succulent food and plenty of  alfalfa or clover hay.  The time the young heifer should be  bred will depend to a certain extent  on the breed, some breeds being more  precocious than others. ' If, however,  she is bred so that the calf wiii fte  dropped when the heifer is from 24 to  33 months old according to size and  maturity, no great mistake will be  made.  Some herdsmen breed heifers before  they are mature. The general result  Js a small unprofitable cow. It is too  much to ask a heifer to mature itself,  reproduce, and as is often the case give  milk at the same time.  Care After Parturition  When the cow calves in the pasture,  the grass, furnishes sufficient succulent  food to keep her in condition and allow for the development of the udder.  If she calves when the pasture is short  or at a season when she must be kept  in the - barn, proper food must be provided. Succulent food should be giyen  in the form of ensilage ahd roots to  keep the animal in a laxative condition and hence tend to make the parturition easy and prevent milk fever.  The grain ration before calving should  be light but if the other food is of poor  quality it is not desirable to omit it  entirely. Bran is ������***ood for thp animal  at this time as is also- some -linseed  meal, Corn meal should be avoided  as it* is a heat pwidiiiMner food and has  a*tendency to cause a fevered condition of the udder.  mash to eat and hot water to drink  should be given her, which will aid in  keeping up the body heat and in expelling the placenta. No cold water  should be allowed until all parturition  fever is gone and the udder is in a nor-'  mal condition. Bran mash may be fed  at once after calving but the heavier  grains should not be fed until the  animal is in a normal condition, after  which she should be gradually worked  to her full ration. Increase the ration  by a pound and allow the milk now to  come up to its maximum before another increase is made. In this way the  cow receives the full stimulus of the  grain and the most economical way of  feeding her can be determined.  After calving, the Cow should not be  milked excepting enough to relieve the  udder for about 24 hours, although in  very bad swsllin0** it ma17 be  _ to milk her dry. If milking;  her can be avoided at this time there  is very' little . chance of hex* having"  niiik fever.  Peed Adapted to  the Production of Milk  Dairy cattle can have no better feed  in summer than that which nature  supplies, namely, grass. Nothing  stimulates the flow of milk like June  grass, but unhappily for the dairy cow  and the dairyman good grass will not  last all summe _ and something else  must be provided. This is usually done  by means of soiling crops. By  careful planning, soiling crops may  be sown so as to provide an abundance  of green food throughout the summer.  The principal soiling crops are: Rye,  clover, alfalfa, oats and peas of various seedings, different millets, corn,  barley. An acre of alfalfa cut and fed  green to cows confined in a yard will  supply ample, food for four.or five  good animals throughout the summer.  - During the winter, clover or alfalfa-  hay is the best roughage that can be  provided.   This food   is highly  nitro-  CANYON CITY  Roadwork has finished here. About  $2,000 was distributed among Canyon  City landowners who were employed  on the work,  K.

Corn if fed alone  will tend to produce fat. Gluten meal  and other by-products of corn are rich  in protein and are valuable additions  to the grain ration.

Summer Management,  It is not good practice to turn cattle out vory early In tho spring, as the  pasture is apt to be soft and easily cut  up, also tho grass contains too much  water to , have groat nutritive value.

Most farmers  will have noticed that on a moderately fine tilth,. and after a few warm  days, the seeds of the vaiyous annual  weeds that have been lying in the  soil all appear to come up at once  with a rush, and if the land is harrowed just as these weeds are beginning to appear through the soil,  millions of them will be destroyed. If  they are left two or three days beyond the correct time, only a small*  percentage of them will be actually  pulled tip, as they very quickly get  a tight hold in tbe soil.

Alberta Taking |he Lead in Practical  Work Along  Educational  Lines  It has been public property for some  time that the agricultural schools es-  lablished by the department   of agri-  oulturc for Alberta are, proving an uii-  dualitiedy success:    The most; caustic  critics of the '.sclie'i-ie have long ago  Aickuowledged    that    the minister of  'gviculture was    right and they were  wrong.    These  schools    have' accomplished something which all the agrl-  cuituxal colleges    have    failed to do,  namely, they-.-have reached the maximum number of boys on the farms and  have given them practical scientific instruction without ih any way weaning  them    from    the  farms.    They have  taken hold of the boys and the girls  who have had such limited opportunities of education that they could not  have been admitted to any college, and  have made them feel that their practical knowledge of farm conditions was  an off-set to their lock of book learning,   and   having   saved  their   self-respect     in  this  way.  have  stimulated  their ambition to add the knowledge  obtainable  from hooks to their practical experience-  In the carpenter shop' of the school  at JDlds  during  the  past  winter the  boys =. made  models   of  the   buildings  which  this  summer    will  help  their  fathers to erect  oh the home farms.  The boy who took' a model home with  lilm  knew  not  only  how  to. build, a  large building hy that model, but he  knew to a foot of lumber and a pound  of cement the material required and  what it would cost to build.   The great  beauty   of  the   instruction    at   these  schools is that nothing is  attempted  which a boy may not later do on his  own* farm   if  he   have   patience   and  pel's everance.  The girls who attend these schools  are not only receiving 'instruction.'in  domestic science, dress making, and  laundry work, but they are receiving \  exactly the same instruction as the  boys in poultry raising, horticulture  axiCi. viaii ynija. .-  While the schools are closed during  the summer, work in connection, with  the schools by r.c means -ceases.

Three prizes are olTered���������$25,  $15 and 9:10���������for the best bushel of alfalfa seed to be delivered in 1916. Already 74 boys have entered this competition, and they are scattered all  over -Alberta from Cardston ou the  south to Vermilion on the north. None  of this seed will be grown,under irrigation.  The money for these prizes was  donated by several of the large lumber  companies in Alberta. The head of 0113  of these companies, liotin,. how much  was being said by the Bankers' association about mixed farming, went to  the Hon. Duncan Marshall aud asked  him If there was anything that they  could do to help. Mr. Marshall seized  the opportunity ana told the lumberman that, he would like 9150 to distribute In prizes for the growing of alfalfa seed. This would be $1.0 for each  school divided as above. The lumberman went away and camp back in a  few days with the money. While ao far  no girls have entered tho competition,  it is open to them should they wtnh to  do so.  j During uio summer a number of  Hpec'lal women institute meeting*, will  bo held, and the Instructors of domestic scloiico from tho different, schools  will seek to bring tho advantages of  tlioRo schools directly homo to tho  mother., of the province.

Mistake   This   Season  It seems: more than likely that a  by-product of the "Greater "reduction" movement, fostered'by the expected shortage in the world's food  supply, will be an actual lessening of  the acreage of flax grown this year-  This, of course, will mean higher  prices than ever for. flaxseed, and big  profits for the level-headed farmers  who see and grasp^ the opportunity.  * Flaxseed is selling now for around  $1.80 cash; October is quoted at $1.85;  if seeding reports show a decrease in  acreage, prices will doubtless go still  higher.  The early seeding this spring, and  the fact thatunder normal conditions  flax ca*a be sown up to June, and  grown . successfully on-new. breaking,  gives farmers a chance to get busy,  after oth_r grains have been sown,  arid get ia enough flaxseed to add very  materially to the year's profits.  We have been training our youth  merely to be better farmers, but this  is only half. What to do, with the  school, the church, the rural organization, the combinations of trade, th.  highways, the architecture, the library, the beauty of the landscape; th..  country store, the rousipg of- a fine  community helpfulness to take the  place of the old. selfish "individualism,  and a hundred other activities is  enough to fire the imagination and to  strengthen the arm of any young  man or woman.���������L.

Women who Work on Farms  tsanisn fimpies  And Eruptions  Female Workers Employed on Farms  in Scotland  In   Scotland     wome__     agricultural  workers are a fairly numerous body.  According   to   information   based   on  the   1911 census,     there  were  14,997  women  employed  on  farms   in   Scotland.    The    women    outworkers    in  Scotland are almost exclusively confined  to  the  counties    south   of  the  Tay.    In   the    northern counties and  the Highlands the women relatives o������  the crofter or small farmer may be  seen  at  work  in  the  fields,  but  except   at  the   turnip-siugling  and   the  potato-lifting season the hired female  outworker is practically unknown, in  mpst    parts ther self-binder has  dispensed with female labor on the harvest  field.    South  of the  Tay,  however, women are employed  at different kinds of work. They work in the  fields  along  with  the , men,    gather  weeds, spread farmyard manure, and  hoe    and single    turnips.    At potato  gatherings,    pulling and  storing turnips,   filling  turnips   into  carts,   and  other jobs- they also take their part.  According * to  some returns  obtained  by   officials   of    the   Scottish   Farm  Servants' Union;'   it is "stated that in  \Ve_t   Lothian   and   Midlothian     the  usual rate of- pay is from 9s to 10s  per week; iu East Lothian, lis to 12s;  in Roxburghshire and the southwestern counties, 12s.   The hours of labor  are    generally' from nine to ten per  day.    A half-holiday has been secured  on many farms,    and  in  Midlothian  and "West    Lothian    it is now fairly  general.  Methods Used by Jack Tars to Repair  Leaks in Battleships  After the conflict, Jack Tars have  several methods of stopping the incoming water when a battleship has  been hit below the water line. For  instance, if a small .hole has been  made in the vessel's side, an apparatus like an umbrella,, is used. Th's  is thrust through the hole, point first  and then drawn back so that it will  open like an umbrella���������leaving tin  canvas outside.  Of course, the pressure of the wTater  effectually forces the canvas against  the ship's side, thus stopping the  leak; but to cake it more secure the  handle of the umbrella, which is formed like a screw, is fastened by a nut  inoide.  ��������� In the case of a bigger leak���������when  the ship has been stove in below the  water-line���������a large mat made of canvas and oakum is used- This has to  be fixed into positiou by means of  ropes.

The season, is at hand when every  case that can be hunted up is oi'din-  arily put into use to move the increasing supply of eggs. Many of those  cases will have been stored in damp  cellars or warehouses or perhaps left  out in the open 3ince last season,  with tha old fillers and pads left in  and periisps without even the bad or  broken eggs removed.  It is Important, therefore, that all  egg dealers insist that their shippers  should not use filthy, musty egg cases,  nor soiled, damp or musty fillers, and  also that the excelsior or other material used, for padding be clean and  sweet.  Considering present conditions and  the fact that Canada's reputation with  respect to eggs dependent upon the  quality of Canadian eggs that go into  storage this spring, it is the duty of  every Canadian engaged in the egg  trade, whether farmer, collector,  country storekeeper or produce dealer  to see that the eggs marketed during  the next, two months are of the highest possible quality and that they are  stored in the best possible condition.
