The first of the Valley's 1915 cabbage  ���������crop made its appearance on Tuesday,  when several heads weighing from 3$  to 5 pounds each were brought in from  Erickson from-the ranch of Mr.T. raser.  In appearance they excelled the California variety, being unbleached.  The annual meeting of the Creston  ^School District is announced for Saturday, July 10. J. W.

Dr. Henderson is in attendance and no serious complications  are anticipated.

Weber, on the Hatfield  ranch, had hatched oiit fourteen  chicks from a setting of thirteen  eggs. Such a performance was so  tremendous looking to many people  that they absolutely refused to take  any stock in the story unless they  were shown an affidavit from the  hen confirming and ratifying the  report. .-������������������'.  Notwithstandiiig this unbelief  we again assure our readers of its  correctness and would point-out  that the entire brood is still alive  and healthy, and getting in shape  to help keep down the high cost of  living in the Weber home next  year, and mayhap break some of  the Valley egg-laying records. ,  It now turns out that this Creston oluoker is not tho only biddy  capable of turning the extra-ohiok  triok.

Mr. Stace Smith has just heard  from his son, Jack, again, under  date of June 4th. Ho bad just got  out of the trenches, his stay on the  line this trip being less arduous, the  casualties being very light.  His letter brings the bad news  that Kelson Brown is wounded and  confirms the disabling of Stanley  Watson and the death of William  Timms.    His letter reads:  Just a line to let yon know that I am  alright. We left the trenches about  three or four days ago and are now in  billets a'pout six miles back. We had-  it pretty easy this- time, and hardly"  lost a man in the trenches, I don't-  know when we will be going back on  duty; pretty soon,-most likely. . . .  The last letter I got from home was  dated April 22nd ; I guess quite a few  of them must go astray before they  get here. Two former bank clerks at  Creston, xstiston and Rogers, are in my  company. Stanley Watson and Nels.  B.iown are both wounded, and Billy  Timms and Billy Murdoch are killed.  . . .

Sinclair Smith of Creston, with  the Strathcoha Horse, now on the  firing line, to P. B, Fowler (Fernie)  is doubly interesting.    He says:  The people at home are very good  with  the  supply  of   tobacco   and  cigarettes, and  from  my owr  experience I am convinced that many  men would go raving mad if it were  not for the  soothing  effect of tbe  weed ; find again, the stench of the  bodies is very marked and as warm  weather cornea on it will be unbearable,   so the  weed   will   not   only  soothe but will disinfect.  Those who opposed the sending  of tobacco argued that the indiscriminate distribution of cigarettes,  particularly, was placing temptation in tlio way of youths who  would, most likely, tinder such try-  iing condition?., tackle a package cf  'eolikVi.aila-' aiid most likely become a oonfirinod smoker in due  time.  Mr. Smith's letter states the case  vory sanely from the soldier's  standpoint, and his view is almost  univcvnally accepted.

Cooper, who claims;  that among other things he provides  three million meals a year to travellers on the Canadain Pacific Railway.  Mr. Cooper is not a philosopher, but  a practical man, and in his own way  set out to investigate and solve this  ! problem. He wrote to, or consulted  personally, the leading stomach specialists in Europe, the United States  and Canada. What he wanted was the  happy traveller on his dining cars,  .who'would really enjoy the three million meals on. which his -chefs spent  so much trouble. Was the man of forty hopeless?  The specialists pocketed their fees  and gave Mr. Cooper not quite three  million, but still a great many oDin-T'  ions to digest.    The ��������� Wiesba.don man  said this, the Paris man said that, the  Loudon man said something eise. the  New     York  man  had   another   cure,  while the Battle Creek man was in a  class' by  himself.    Yet     when   their  opinions came to be analyzed they all  had one common point of view, namely,  that  the  foods  consumed  in  any  meal must be properly blended- Everyone   who   has   survived     the     ordeal  knows that it is a mistake to wash  down   oysters   with  brandy.   Quite   a  number feel unhappy alter a mixture  of  lemonade   and  ice   cream.     Table  beer may be good in itself, but not if  followed by a cup of cocoa. In a word,.  the foods must blend if the meal is to  serve its purpose, and more particularly so in the case of train  travellers  who have little opportunity for exercise.

The demand for skilled mechanics  has in consequence been pressing, and.  overtime in many cases, it ia  said, has had to be resorted to.

In - i������0-���������<.-, six  graduates of the Ontario Agricultural  college    were   given local Offices in  six counties.    Their  work met  with  so much, favor that the people themselves    demanded increases in these  appointments, until today they number 41, covering practically the whole  province   from   Glengarry    to   Rainy  ������������������.-'River..":'  A   By this means the benefits of the  colleges and the results  of    the  experimental farms,  are    carried    and  applied to thieA farms in such a way  ss  to  favorably influence production  .and. improve social conditions. "Bach  ���������^eounty has its local offices,    with; a  ���������'* graduate      agricultural    student    in  charge.    He has an ^assistant who is  generally    an undergraduate as  well  as a stenographer.    LpcaJ conditions  are  the  first   study    of   Hhis   office,  while the initiative of the department  Fs   able   to   emphasize    any     special  work in the county that might make  for  increased   production  and   thrift.  Classes are held to teach those subjects especially   needful    in    agricultural occupations and while these at  first  were  attended  by  a  very   few,  there   are  now  about    1,000    young  farmers between 18 and SO years, attending and enjoying th. instruction.  And    their    works a have  justified  their   faith.     Drainage     surveys   are  made   free.     Any  farmer   can   get   a  special drainage plan  with  the A best  expert advice as how'- best to handle  his   fields.    The    results   have   enormously   stimulated   rural   enterprise.

Lennox and Addington prior to lOll-  sold about 515,000 worth of poultry  in the ISTapanee market. I_ast year  the same market returned $53,000 to  the local farmers- This .was direct-  ' ly due to the effort* of the egg circle  work  of the .local  representatives.  Perhaps no finer instance of farm  enterprise exists than in the east of  Lambton. In 1910 this county imported vegatables and fruit to feed  ~ its people, as it produced only 25 per  cent, of its needs. Last year it  shipped out 30,000 bushels of potatoes and 1,122 tons of vegetables,* besides harvesting a .crop of peaches  and tender fruits. These tender fruits  . were only a dream formerly and now  Lambton farm lands are looked upon  as one of the best tender fruit sections of Canada. Land values have  risen from $25 to $100 per acre, while  peach lands easily demand $300 per  acre, these being directly due to the  work of the department. '  The school fairs and local young  farmers' clnbs Jhat have grown out  of the movement are marks of the  healthy rural awakening..  The same rejuvenation that has  come to the    old    lands  of Ontario  would be quite possible to the prairie  farms of Manitoba. That province  has wonderful possibilities.

He  could   not   do  better  than I  follow Ontario's example where such J  substantial results have been made./  This is matter in which financiers  and all business men are interested  quite as much as farmers. When the  farmers have more money they buy  more from their local merchants, who  in turn increase their purchases of  manufactures. When orders are  plentiful the manufacturer can give  more employment, pay better wages,  fair and regular dividends, to investors- Some of this comes, back again  to the farmer, for many of those ih  Ontario have put their sayings into  bonds and shares of Canadian industries. Friends of the Manitoba government should present these facts to  them. It is evident they have not  the proper grasp of tiie situation.  The provincial government though  urged by business men-���������who offered  to share part of the expense���������refuses to take the most necessary  steps to promote better production  on the farms in that province, by  employing agricultural experts. This  neglect A following their action on the  moratorium, makes us fear the government is in need of som'e reorganization. They are in a rut. Next  week (space prevents us from doing  so at present) we will., draw Mr. Rob-  lin's attention tc some actual money  making experiences from Ontario's  policy of employing district agricul-  tw/ral directors.

Value of the Potato as a  Food Is Summed Up  Potatoes are an inferior feed for  dairy cows, writes Prof. A. A. Borkind  of the Vermont experiment station. Iu  trials at the Vermont experiment station in 1896, to determine the relative  value of corn silage and potatoes,  100 pounds both of drv matter and  digestible dry matter, in silage proved  superior to similar amounts in potatoes. The latter were eaten even  more freely than was the silage, yet  produced neither more nor better  milk. At 15 cents a bushel they were  more costly food for stock than was  silage.

I:_ order to secure the best  results, the potatoes should be cooked so as to be; mealy, and be mixed  with cornmeal or other ground grains  t- form a rather heavy mush- In this  form they are relished by the swine.  Swim milk makes a valuable adjunct  to feedy with this mixture ofcooked potatoes and meal. Potatoes alone cannot be used to advantage as food hor  can they be'eaten by the hogs in any  great quantity. Experiments at Wisconsin and elsewhere show that 450  pounds of ccoksd .potatoes are worth  approximately" 100 pounds of cornmeal  for swine feeding.  Potatoes have riot been used for  stock feed in this country to a great  enough extent so ithat the experiment  stations have made a study of their  use, writes "J. L. Stone of the Cornell  experiment station"., in the same paper. We have very little data regarding  the feeding of potatoes to livestock.  In Germany,���������; where the situation is  considerably different, the question  has been studied) much more. The  general conclusion arrived at is that  they may he successfully used in feeding dairy cqws, horses, sheep and pigs.  In the case of "horses a,nd pigs the  German practice; has been to steam  the potatoes- In y__aierica it i  that surplus potatoes ear.  used for dairy 'cows. The. total digestive nutrients in a ton of potatoes  will be slightly more than one-fifth as  much as w->uM be contained in a ton  of cornmeal. The potatoes are even  more highly carbonaceous than the  cornmeal and ha,i_u rail ^ would be best  f__    .T.    . f-_1-*'"_-. tirsrs    \_-.l--.l-sf-ft^- fp-sfi^  that supply an abuudance of protein.  There is another factor, however, involved, that is of consiuei-able: importance. Raw potatoes are a succulent  food, and used in connection with a ration that is deficient in succulence  (usually one that does not include  corn silage) they-would have a value  .-V.-...J.      -KA*      - ������vl.,..*4-_��������� :. !_...���������     XL*.     *���������-*+.-..      -i:  auuub    iiiai.    piui.aLcu    uj    cixo    ivi-ai    ui-  gestive nutrients. Some succulent  food is desirable in all rations, and a  moderate amount of such food, when  added as above, produces an effect  above that which would he indicated  by the nutrients present. The writer's  personal experience is that as small  ah amount-as half a peck a day fed all  dairy cows (lacking other succulence)  produces quite a marked effect in the  milk flow, and two or three times this  amount may be fed to advantage, if  the potatoes are available. But they  should be introduced into the ration  gradually. To avoid danger from  choking it is well to run the potatoes  through a root cutter. It is impossible  to give a cash valuation to a foodstuff  of this kind, except as a result of  careful experiment. It is probable that  under ordinary circumstances and the  present condition of the grain market, potatoes might be figured at from  15 to 20 cents a bushel for feeding  purposes, and If succulence wero sadly  needed they might reach an effect  equivalent to a valuation of 25 cents  a bushel. . .._  i_-_-_rBi_*K  KVJIH  n &S.E.SL  THE VICTORS  WILL  LAY DOWN THE CONDITIONS  Unlike Many ot the Past Great Struggles, tue Principles   that are  not Admit of a Compromise  as it is Victory or Annihilation  Tt      ���������   .    _    _���������1 _    _ _. ,1 IX-      _   _  joeuig uuiucnucu tut mOW  V..-_.!.���������. "I _ _.  .__- irx*%X%JX\*  V. -.^ii.-'      --^  In the past fifty years there has  been really only one "light to a finish"  among the nations. That fight was  tha war between France and Prussia.  Only then was the victor able to dictate his own: terms of peace, it was  a case of two bargainers meeting, and  after long discussion arriving: at a  compromise satisfactory to both or  equally unsatisfactory. The loser had  .nothing to do in 1870 but to agree  to ywhat the victor demanded. The  present war will end in* the same way.  The Yictor will lay down his conditions. If they are not accepted the  armistice which precedes any formal  discussion of terms will be brought to  an end and the fight will continue. It  is safe to say that among the allies  there is not more than one man ia  a hundred who looks forward to a  compromise. The principles that are  being contended for do not admit of  compromise. For the Germans'' it is  destruction or .world-empire. For  the Allies it is absolute, victory or  annihilation.  The last great war, that in the Balkans, and we include both the war  of the allies against Turkey and the  subsequent war of Serbia and Greece  against dominant and. arrogant Bulgaria, was not decided bv the victor-  In both cases the great powers intervened, once to save Turkey as a European state, and once again to see  that Greece and Serbia did not altogether wipe out Bulgaria. Britain  had more to do with dictating terms  of peace than the successful belligerents. Those who believe that compromises are wise will find themselves  unable tc cite the compromises that  ended the" Balkan' struggles as evidence, a These compromises merely  sowed- the seeds for future wars, and  this warning would be enough in itself, apart from the other features of  the struggle now raging, to convince  statesmen of neutral nations that a  fight to a.-finish is the only possible,  the only sensible, and the������ only humane issue of the present war.:  Though the Russo-Japanese war  is classified as a Japanese triumph,  and though Russian victories in it  are hard to call to mind, the war  really ended: in a draw. Russia was  brought to a standstill. She.was by  r__ means -beaten' and without attempting to disparage the remarkable  achievements of the Japanese army  and navy, it might be said that Russia quit before she had really begun  to fight. Russia was like a mastiff  tliat had. been punished by a terrier  and is ready to quit. But if the  wohuded mastiff had continued to the  limits of his strength, the situation  of the terrier might have baeu vastly  different. When the i-lenipbtentlaries  met in the United  States  Japan de  manded not only the cession of Port  Arthur, which had been already captured, a free hand iu Manchuria, the  recognition of her sovereignty in  Korea and in the whole of Saghaiien,  but an indemnity of $600,000,000.  i-ussia was willing tb cede all but  tlieA indemnity. Now ?600,000,000 was  a lot bf money to Japan as it is to tho  ordinary reader, but, nevertheless,  Russia refused flatly to pay it, aid  Japan did ; ot insi'st. Had she done  so the war would have continued, and  perhaps with different results.  In her war against Turkey Russia  won    inuch.    She    won    Bessarabia,  and recognition as the natural guardian of the Slavs in the Turkish empire.     But she    did not impose  the  terms   of  peace.     They    were  flatly  decided by Germany and Britain and  Bismarck and  Beaconsfieid    had    in  mind -rather the necessity of protecting their future than of rewarding her  for   her  successful   war  against  the  Turks.    In    this    case  again Russia  was not strong enough to insist upo:i  retaining what    her arms    had won.  She  propo-ed, but the other powers  disposed.    She  did not  dictate.    She  merely made it impossible for Turkey  to dictate, and while    this    war Is a  most important one. from a Russian  point of view, it does "not reveal her  in tliey light of a conqueror with her  foot upon the neck    of a vanquished  nation. '���������;���������'���������  The warA between Britain and South  Africa,, like the -American Civil war,  differs from Mother great* conflicts in. ~-  the past half century. Lincoln always regarded the soidiers of the  South as disobedient citizens. Britain, too, has claims of sovereignty  upon the Transvaal. In both* cases  there was no talk of terms.    Uncon-  ditinnnl   siivronrjor  ���������'���������"������������������a0,  ���������lomantlp't       T~v  both case., it was yielded. In South  Africa the Boers did not know what  terms they would be forced to accept* for a couple of-years after the  last shot had; been fired.y Nor did  Lee. when at Apponiatox. he yielded  to Grant's -stern decree of unconditional surrender. Iu this one cas'a  the terms granted by the conqueror  were more generous than the^van-  quished had a right to expect. In  the case of the uivii War, tiie South  suffered from a "carpet bag" xegime  hardly less terrible than war. A In  the war between the United States  and Spain the fight was not continued  to a finish. Spain yielded sovereignty in Cuba and the Philippines. A She  paid no Indemnity. On the contrary,  the United States paid her $20,000.-  000 and other expenses. The war  was no "draw," and while it established the United States as a world  power, it did not destroy Spain.

According to one divine the  country districts particularly need  pastors who "are willing to do their  "utmost for the good of humanity  ''instead of spending their time  "running after the girls."  That there is a great deal of  truth in this observation is borne  out in the remarks of Mr. Sayer,  general secretary of the Baptist  Union, who pointed out that the  last Dominion census showed 70.000  Baptists in Western Canada, while  the tabulated statistics of the  ������������������hurches allowed only 18,000.

Several years ago the custom was to  keep steers until they were four or  five years old before marketing them.  There is little demand at present for  heavy beef and as a rule you- will find  feeders marketing their cattle when  from one to three years cf age. The  production of such beef may be divided into two' classes:���������(a) the high  grade calf forced from birth and finished at an age of one year or 16 months,  and (b) the same kind of *  stowit-o" and finished at- 22  The former method is not as common,  as-the latter.  On entering "On such a system one  should have well bred calves.' If the  animals are to be marketed at 11 or 14  months old they, shouid.be diropped in  the;faU,yOctoher or November, arid be  allowed to suck their dams for six  months. * By having calves come at  this time they can be weaned, in the  spring, stnd turned out on gOpd pasture. In addition to grass they should  have a grain ration. If they have access to clover pasture, a large portion  of the ration ( may be corn, in fact  oats, bran, and oatmeal may be omitted entirely during the first month or  two of the feeding. If the , calves are  to he marketed at 14 months they  should be fed grain from the time of  weaning, starting with one pound per  head a day and slowly increasing to  from four to six pounds per head daily.  The essential thing is however to feed  them all tho roots and clover or alfalfa hay they can ho induced to eat.  The grain, which may be corn, oats or  barley or a mixture of any two or all  three'.'should never bo fed. alone, but  should be mixed with an equal weight  of finely chopped alfalfa or clover, or  else sprinkled on the sliced roots. The  grain should always bo crushed.  . At 1-1 months old a well, bred beef  animal ought to weigh something over  700 pounds.  If .the oalvofl are to bo marketed at  22 months or near that they should bo  fed all the hay and roots that thoy  can bo induced to eat tho first winter  but no grain, kept on good pasture  during the summer and whon placed  in the food lots in the fall they should  bo fed on hay and roots for a month  and then given a small grain ration  which is gradually increased until hy  tho time they are romly to market  this amounts to from six to eight  pounds, At 22 months thoy should  average around  1,200 pound.-: each.

Canyon City can claim having four  volunteers in the ranks: John Carfra,  John Wood, George Kogan and Tom  Campbell. The home of the latter two  was not here though they were employed here during inost of their stay  in the Valley.  When the flocks are brought into  winter quarters they should be graded  into severed groups. The breeding  ewes should be separated from the  lambs and the stock intended for mutton. The weak and thin should be  sepera.fed from the young- and strong  so that tliey may receive better care  and feed. The rams should be kept in  a box of ample size to allow them  plenty of exercise. Do not allow rams  to run with pregnant ewes. Regular  feeding is essential.' Sheep will often  do better on a poor ration fed regularly twice ii day than on a good ration  fed} *,at irregular -intervals; Exercise  is important, especially in the case of  breeding ewes. If they do not receive  sufficient exercise ,during pregnancy,  the- iambs wiii ccyme but weak and  puny. Ewes having insufficient exercise will experience more or less trouble; in lambing. To keep a breeding  ewe penned up in a small ^pace is to  kill her with kindness. Whateyer  kind of quarters , are provided for  sheep should be dry both overhead  and underfoot. If the quarters are  dry, sheep will endure considerable  cold without any inconvenience.  If'the .sheep are kept, in a filthy wet  den serious results are often experienced. Foot-rot is often brought on in  this manner. Just how often one  should clean out a sheep barn is a  question that cannot be answered satisfactorily, However it is conceded  by most shepherds that it should be  cleaned out before lambing time. It is  also dcsiriible . to hurry the operation  as many undesirable odors accompany  thework, A disinfectant such as Gypsum should be usod freoly in the barn  after the manure lias been removed.  Tho ventilation of a sheep barn should  recoivo careful attontioii. To koop the  sheep tn as pure an atmosphere as  possible und to avoid draughts should  he the aim of ovory, shepherd.  If any member of tlio flock becomes  dirty due to scouring, a. tract of wool  should ho I'oniovod from tho stern. Do  not trim too closoly in tho winter  time.  In order to keep up the standard of  a flock and to improve thorn, plenty of  food of tho right nature .should bo fed,  nomfortrtililo buildings, Intelligent care  and all otlior necessities conducive to  theigenernl health of the flock should  ho furnished.

I But for herself there was a troublous moment to be passed through  when it should become necessary to  inform her father of her marriage. It  was a shock to the old man���������he look-  a door.  On their side, Waters is 'equally si or  ry for Hugh, whom he privately considers rather slow. He stilt has it  feeling that Hugh was treated hadiy,  and salved his conscience recently by  an offer to amalgamate their two concerns, Hugh to he a partner in the  joint business. It was, of. .course, an  exceedingly advantageous offer for  Hugh, but he guessed the motive that  inspired it and declined it with many  thanks, though the knowledge that,  the two tlrms are in close alliance has  often proved useful, possibly to both  of then-., but certainly to the smaller  of the two.  For the rest Hugh aud Eira have  a boy and girl, who keep them busy  enough; and as Mr. and Mrs. Waters  have no children, and as both take a  great interest in Hugh' two little ones,  perhaps Eira sometimes has dreams  conceruing the ultimate destination of  that huge fortune which Tom AVaters  gives long nights and laborious days  to building up.  But these are dreams���������dreams such  as that past dream of winning from  old Mother Nature the intimate secrets she keeps so well guarded;  dreams all, whether of wealth or of  power or revenge or of terror, like  that past dream of an unheard-of  doom that long ago threatened her  and him who is now her husband; all  are dreams together, and in a life  that is but a sea of dreams glad is  she to have found a dream so sweet  as that of the love which between her  and Hugh grows deeper every day.

Fresh vegetables from the home  are not subjected to exposure  in marketing, are not liable to infection and are of a much better flavor  than vegetables that have been gatherer, for some tirns. The home vegetable garden deserves greater attention "from the average farmer.  Horsa  cultivation of the garden  is  recommended wherever possible, and,  where    the   work   is   to   be   done, by  means  of  horse  tools,     the    garden  should be so arranged''that the rows  will run lengthwise.   It is often a good  plan to grow* vegetables for the table  in the same  field   with corn or root  crops.     Two   or   three   rows   in   this  field, on the side close to the house,  can be planted to tomatoes, radishes,  cucumbers,   cabbages,     beans,     peas,  etc., and will supply fresh vegetables  for the table during the growing season.     They  can   be   easily  cultivated  and kept clean when the corn and root  crops are being attended to with the  horse implements.   One lady in Prince  Edward Island, on  one  of the  farms  w*here illustration    work    was    being  I dons for ,the commission of conserva-  j tion, who desired to go into the pOui-  j try business, moved the garden out to  the  field and  bad   it  attended  to  as  i above  suggested.     This   plan,  worked  j so wall that it has been continued and  I gives excellent satisfaction.    There-is  i no  reason   why  the   same  thing   can  j not be done on-miany farms;   it will  ( mean that a better and more abimd-  I ant supply of vegetables will be bb-  i tained,   and,   also,   that   the woman's  considerably  of food supplied from the garden means that  there will be more of the other products of the farm for sale.���������F.C.N., dn  Conservation.

The Lure of the Land  Farming  a   Business  Which   Required  the   Highest   Talent  D'r- Henry W. Wiley,' formerly chief  chemist of" the U.S. department of  agriculture, who has himself joined  the "back-to-the-land" movement, has  given voice to some very sound logic  on this subject, in a. little pamphlet  entitled "The Lure of the Land."   ;  '���������The lure of the land is a������ natural  faculty of man, characteristic of vhis  ancestry and heritage," writes Dr.  Wiley. '-Farming is" a business which  requires the highest talent, it is a  profession which requires' the best  technical skill. There is no other  profession that requires such a variety of learning, such an insight into  nature, such skill of a technical kind  in order to be successful, as the profession of farming.  "To succeed today on the farm requires courage, industry, tact, know--  " ledge, paUsnce, enthusiam. and  brains-   A  "I: look upon the attempts to class-  occupation    O*     piiiCiUit:  ent   strata   of  social  honor,    as    extremely  wisa and  threatening  efficiency and  perilous, unto  the  funda-  Oats Should be Fed to Stock  Canadian Expeditionary Force, it was .  thoua-ht  advisable   to   form     another fVork on the farm will be  company,    and    an    application  was i lightened-    Lvery pound  made to the department for the necessary authority, which has been granted.

Profitable to Feed Stock  Oats in the Sheaf ,  I believe the modern method of  handling and feeding is undoubtedly  wrong so far as the entire oat crop is  concerned, says a writer in the In-!  diana Farmer, That is to say, the mod-1  em method requires the oats to be  threshed- Then the grain is fed, and  the straw so far as getting any good  results ,as stock food is largely n  loss. Horses, cattle and sheep are all  very fond of oats. When either in  sheaves or cut down and cured like  meadow grasses and then put through  a straw cutter, stock eat up cleanly  both the grain nnd the. straw, and  grow and ' -tten :.icely with but little  other grain or ha.'. .Animals are'compelled to eat the straw while getting  the grain. This straw gives bulk to  the   feed.  The time was when "very farmer  grew large tiehls ot oats and outside  of what was required for seed, the remainder of the crop was cut and fed  to stock. Tn the spring, time the work  horses were fed liberally on the cut  oats, but during tho heavy work  season "chop" was made. That is, after tho oats woro cut, they were dampened nnd r ixeil with line com meal,  wheat, bran and mlddllngi*.

Attended by Gratifying Results  ' A'n idea of the magnitude of the  work done by the C.P.1U department  of natural resources may*-, be gained  from the fact that, though it has only  been in existence for two years, it has  4,000 employees on its books. The  chief work in whioh it is engaged is  the sale'and colonisation of the .vast  holdings o,t" the company iu the west,  some _,000,00O acres in amount^to bo  exact. A fundamental change was  made two years ago by the company  in the manner of the dt-yusui of the  lands belonging to the company. Heretofore, land was sold by the company  without any restriction as to the 'use  to which it was to be put. That is to  say, the company sold large, parcels  to speculators,'who held the lands for  large' profits to the thwarting of the  very purpose the company had in  view���������namely, the settlement of the  country���������an object it has set itself  from the beginning. The Canadian  Pacific determined that no more land  should be sold to speculators. All the  unsold lands were withdrawn from  sale for speculative purposes and the  work of colonization- No land is sold  by the company without an assurance  of the intention of the purchaser to  reside on and develop the land so purchased. This principle was so framed  in order to attract to Western Canada  the best kind of agricultural worker,  whether from North America, Great  Britain, or Northern Europe. The  terms of payment were spread over  20 years. This is a generous provision, which has not been equalled in  any other country in the world. It  has attracted an admirable class-  families a not perhaps well off, but  sturdy, ambitious to get on, and* determined to own their own lioines.  -Thenew department has been a great  success; and is being prosecuted with  vigor under the direction of Mr. J. S.  Dennis, the head of it.  AND HEALTH PERILS  and DISINFECTS  THIS LYE IS ABSOLUTELY  PURE. THEREFORE TOTALLY  DIFFERENT FROM THE  IMPURE AND HIGHLY ADULTERATED   LYES  NOW SOLD.

I had no color, no appetite,  and   was   constantly     t;*ou'b!ed   with  headaches, dizzy spells and a general  disinclination  to   move   about  or  do  anything.   My friends did not think I  would get better, and even the doctor  was apprehensive.    I was constantly  taking medicine, but it did not do me  a particle of good.   One day a friend  asked it' I had tried Dr. Willlafhs' Pink  Pills, and I decided to do so almost as  a forlorn hope.    After I had used a  few boxes there was a decided change  for the  better, and people began to  ask what I was taking, the change was  so  noticeable.    As 1  continued    the  Pills my color camo back, I could eat  my meals regularly, thb headaches and  dizzy spells ceased, I gained In weight  and took a now Interest In life, my  cure   being  complete.

The Mistaken Opinion, Generally  Prevalent, That High Gravity Gasoline   is  the   Most   Efficient  The following are some extracts  from a series of articles entitled  "Gasoline: Some Aspects Of It," which  was published in "Motor Age," during  November, 1911:  "It is difficult to approach' the subject of gasoline without having to  deal with gravity. The first question  a motorist asks after he has his tank  filled is, 'What gravity?'     ;  "Car owners have, tihie without end,  asked for 70 or 76 gasoline and yet  did not know *what they were asking  about. ���������: Ignorance in this matter has  been exhibited time and time again in  track and road races. One concern  would notuse anything but 85 gravity  gasoline because they claimed it was  quicker and more powerful���������hence  the car would make better..speed. In  the same meet, another concern w;ould  not use anything but 56 gravity on the  ground that it gave more power and  was faster. Here were the two oppos-  ites. In the race, it happened that the  car with the 56 beat the car with the  85. The i-ace proved one thing���������that  the 56 had more power in it, gallon  for gallon, than the 85.  "Gravity simply; means weight-  There are two scales in common use:  Specific and Beaume.- These scales  ���������simply tell us the relative weight of a  liquid compared with water. In the  Beaume scale, water is taken at an  arbitrary point, being 10. A liquid  weighing less than water is expressed  by figures higher than 1.0. It wiii be  seen that a. liquid that: is 50 degrees  Beaume is lighter than water, but  heavier than a liquid that is 70 degrees Beaume. Iny other words, the  higher the numerals, the lighter the  liquid; the lower the humerals. the  heavier the liquid. When we buy a  gallon of 70 gravity gasoline, we know  we get fewer pounds than when we  buy 60 gravity, and as we always buy  by the gallon and not by the pound, it  would , seem we get more for our  money by buying the lower gravity  gasoline.  ' The  thing that puzzled    us most  about   gravity  was  the   fact  that  it  never seemed to stay 'put.' When we  tested it intone section of the country,   we   obtained   a   different   result  from that secured in another section.  For instance���������working with., gasoline  in the Atlantic coast states, we reached the conclusion that we must have  a gasoline of about 66 gravity.   When  we   got   lower  than   this,   we   found  difficulty in starting a car, and when  we got a higher test gasoline we- did  not get the power, and so It we had  stopped here, we would have unhesitatingly said 'Use gasoline as near 66  gravity as you can get.* But to our  surprise when we got into Ohio and  experimented   with     gasoline   made  from Lima crude, we  found that 62  gravity gave the best results. Working farther west, with gasoline made  from   Kansas   and   Oklahoma   crude,  another surprise met us.   Fifty-eight  to 60 gravity gasoline showed up best  in every test.    Texas and California  crude pvoved most    satisfactory    at  about 56 gravity.    But we must confess wo wore surprised when we tost-  ed a gasoline that was purported to  bo mado from Borneo crudo which had  a gravity of 42 dogrees. This gave excellent results.  "What did this all means? It seemed  to toll us plainly and * unmistakably  that gravity wns not jx true standard.  Tt established the fact that the gravity of gasoline is always heavier or  lighter, corresponding to the crude  from which it .is produced.  " 'If gravity Is not a true tOBt, what  Is?' We found ournolveo asking tho  question long before wa had pro-  grossorl thin fur In our Invostigation.  It seemed *" "h that tlio refiners must  have some mothod of ascortninlng  whether or not a gasoline will moot  certain requirements. There must bo  some reason why 58 Kmvil.y Kansas  gasoline performs the same an the 0t)  gravity Pennsylvania.  ' Ah a mutter of fact, giiBollno In  known "to the rotlnnr idmply as a  nifMiibnr of tin. nnptha family.

It Is not. dif  ficult to understand what boiling point j  means.    It is the point on a'Fahren-i  heit thermometer  at  which   a  liquid  will begin to boil.  "The refiner distils a given quantity  gabuiiue aud while it is j~i the process of distillation, ascertains iu what  point each 10% will boil, until the entire quantity is evaporated or distilled.  In this manner, he determines what is  known as the initial boiling point, as  well as the maximum boiling point  and all intervening boiling points.  "Our interest centres more particularly in gasoline best adapted to motor  use. What have boiling points to do  with this? Everything. We want an  engine to start quickly. Low initial  boiling points tell the story. It evaporates or volatilizes quickly in cold  weather and starts quickly. It is possible to produce from some crude oil,  gasoline having as low boiling points  and much lower gravity than is produced from other "crudes. High gravity does not necessarily mean low initial boiling points, and unless we have  low initial boiiing points, there will  be trouble in starting a car no matter  how high the gravity is. So that for  easy starting, a certain percentage of  low boiling points is absolutely essential. Given this percentage, it is just  as essential that the other fractions  show gradually rising and higher boiling points."  These statements in "Motor Age"  show conclusively that gravity is not  a true test of quality iu motor fuel.  Heat units determine the power in  a gallon of gasoline. The higher the  gravity the less heat units contained  therein per gallon.  Hence high gravity gasoline means  fewer miles per gallon. If motorists  generally appreciated this elementary  fact of physics; .there would be less  demand foi* high gravity and more emphasis on low initial boiling point,  which is what the man who-drives a  car is really concerned about. Hign  gravity gasoline has been demanded  because high gravity has erroneously  become associated with rapid' vaporization and freedom yfrom starting  troubles. As a matter of fact, what  really determine's quick starting is the  boiling point of the gasoline, not its  gravity;.- '������������������":'  One consequence of the fallacious  insistence on high gravity gasoline  has been the marketing of mixtures  and blends which are anything but desirable from the motorists' point of  view. A very high gravity gasoline,  generally produced by condensing gas  under pressure is mixed with a heavier product in order that the average  WI   ^L Wp *^m  *tf *Mt w^*   on  A woman wants  her summer Dresses���������  her "frilly things"���������her  fine .mens���������to look their  whitest and daintiest���������  she is very particular  to use  LAUNDRY STARCH  It  gives   that   delightfully satin finish.   :    t  YOUR  GROCER  HAS   IT  59  ine v-anada Siarch Co.
