Have you   cut your noxious  weeds  yet?   Along the Great Northern right  of way is a splendid crop of thistles,  one gentleman  estisaa13ng"ther^oh.6_-  destroying  them to be worth' about  tm.nr.rx  tpxtnr.  Already so soon some of this year's  Creston apples have found their way  to market���������a few boxes of green ones.  From present appearances Yellow  Transparent^ will be ready in three  weeks.  Father John is just in receipt of a  cable bringing the sad news of the  death of a brother in one of the field  hospitals in France. He was wounded  in the fighting around Yprez some  weeks ago.  A Chapter of the Daughters bf the  Empire is in prospect for Creston.

Everything looks  spic and span, and he is sure to command a share of tho trade In thss line.  T. Butterfield, the Duclc . Crook  postmaster, was in town yesterday.  Up to noon of that day 7,084 crates of  strawberries hud been shipped and  with a few yet to go the total for the  Hoason there will easily reach 7,700  crates.  Mr. and Mrs. Jim English of Port  Hill woro here for tho danco on Monthly night. Tholr hotel at that place  was recently destroyed by fire and  they arc moving to St. Mary's, Idaho,  this month, whoro ho has purchased a  restaurant.  Rog. Watson writes from Vernon  that "B" Company is lending the simple life in anticipation of a shipmont  of Jam, etc. which the Cranbrook  Indies are preparing to Nend the recruits from that point with the all-  Kootenay Regiment.  A once-a-month English Church service will bo inaugurated at Croston,  commencing on July 26th. Rev. Mr,  Mahood of Crawford Bay will bo the  visiting clergyman and for the pien-  cut will conduct only morning prayer,  with Holy Communion,, going to Bon-  well for the evening.  Mrs. and Miss B. Mawson of Creston  were Sunday visitors with Mrs. A. B.  Stanley.  J. W. Fraser is to the front with  ripe tomatoes. He had enough for a  liberal side-dish all round on Monday.  Owing to wet weather on both Wed-  necday and Thursday the Red Cross  tea at Mrs. Kemp's is postponed until  Wednesday; July 21.  Ingress and egress from the Sam  Scott ranch is considerably facilitated  by the installation of a new gate the  latter part of the week.  In addition to being the first of the  season's raspberry shippers,- W. G.  Littlejohn exported the first loganber-  *n<������<J tVja InM-or- ������������m������_  Tyf f.Vio -wool.  Mrs. 3.M. Craigie is- gathering the  July picking of oranges and lemons.  The latter are a splendid yield in size  and flavor but the oranges are small.  The young son of .Mr. and Mrs. E.  Botterill was christened on Sunday at  Christ Church,Creston,by Archdeacon  Beer, taking the name Clarence Raymond.  The C.P.R. gang arrived on Monday  and is busy putting in the new drain  opposite the old mill. While on the  job we hear they will do some repairing and renovating at the depot.  .*  Stewart, the young son of Mr. Pen-  son, is traveling these days with his  arm in a sling.   While playing on Fri-  d*3V hs fsll off   a bQX    aiiicr'h'tirtcr    r\rt irtia  DUCK CREEK  The headline feature of the July  meeting of the Boara of Trade, on  Tuesday night, was, the matter of  fittingly celebrating'the first anniversary of Britain's;? declaration of  war against 5or6i*_i_tjiiiy, on August  4th, 1914. ;;  The matter eanie up on the  strength oi a letterfbom Lieutenant  Governor Barnard,%w the subject,  the epistle pointing out that all  province were  i-X.ri  vxxa  j  ._._ >~~ ~~    w ~~^, ������_.ft_.���������..���������j,    -x, _,,_- j tfte  atttj  which; though   fortunately not I    ,  broken, is seriously sprained.  other centres of  being asked to act 4 along the same  line on this great occasion.  The board decided to put the  matter up to a public meeting to  be held in Mercantile Hall on Monday night at 8 o'eldbk, at which all  citizens are asked to attend.  Not having any ivord from Supt.  Harshaw of the. C.P.R. as to ���������whether or no the company was agreeable to the erection^ of a bandstand  in the vicinity of "the town flagpole,  W. B. Embree aslsed the board's-  endorsation of the project in the  shape of a letter to. the superintendent asking for' early consideration  as the season is getting,on. The  secretary was instructed to write  accordingly.  'He was also instructed  to write  authorities at Victoria as  to  R. Dixon left on Sunday for Kuska-  nonk. -where he is visiting C. Wright.  And still the strawberry picking  goes on. "(Jp to date 7,684 crates of  berries have been shipped.  Duck Creek was well represented at  the dance at Creston on Monday, six  being able to make the grade.  Miss Anna _r���������.of������w snent Sunday at  Alice Siding. . E. S. Butterfield also  drifted into that locality on the noon  train.  O. J. Wigen was a Creston caller on  Monday. T. Butterfield mingled with  the scenery at the metropolis on  Thursday.  Mr. Eaken and family, who have  been spending a holiday here for* the  past two weeks, returned to Cranbrook  on Tuesday.  We should be glad to know if any of  our.brilliant Alice Siding or Creston  poultry fanciers will tell us if .the first  hen came from an egg or the first egg  from a hen.  Farewell t������ Great  Northern  W. Levesque is out with a challenge  to the Valley to excel his achievement  in green peas culture. From a sowing  of 4i pounds of Dwarf seed he has  marketed over 500 pounds of peas in  the pod���������grown on about one-eleventh  of an acre.  On -the somewhat rare occasions that  -_hat the sun "shines sufficiently long  Alex.-JDuperry is busy taking off a record timothy crop; Exact figures on  yield are not available as yet, but  it is safe to say even Duck Creek will  have to go some to equal it.  Cranbrook Herald : Word has been  received in the city to the effect that  Mrs. J. Stanley Peck (nee Miss Lena  Cartwright) who underwent a serious  operation in the Strathcona hospital  in Edmonton for appendicitis, is doing  splendidly and on a fair road to recovery.  The school meeting on Saturday  passed off very harmoniously, though  there was one surprise handed ont in  the resignation of W-. G. Littlejohn,  whose term had another year to rnu.  It was therefore necessary to elect successors to he and Roy Staples, and  these honors fell to E. Botterill and J.  M, Craigio. For auditor W. H.

Lionel Forrester and Percy Hondron  packed up tbe rivor to Seven Mile  Creek for a ten-day outing. That kind  of work is what makes men out of our  boys; It gives them courage and confidence aud teaches thoin to rely on  themselves, ho when they are men  tliey will noli have lo Htaiui by iiiim  wait for ordcrii from any ouporlor  officer or men higher up.  j wnac was, oemg aone regarding tne  pound iaw. _>Te_t Mackay, M.P.P.  for Kaslo, will also get a copy of  the letter, and be asked to use his  influence in securing quick action.  The board will ask the Fruit  Growers Union to use its influence  with all its members to have them  insert the' board'g^pamphlefc concerning the Valley in every possible  box of fruit  this year.  publicity should be thus obtained.  There was the usual batch of enquiries as to land, etc., in the Valley. Among the correspondence  was a letter or two from the railway commission concerning a lack  of fencing on the Great Northern  rightofway near Wynndel, of which  the board here had complained.  There seems some doubt as to whether the C.P.R. or G.N.R. should  remedy matters, and when a decision is reached the board is assured  prompt advice.  A roof to projeot over the driveway where the loading or unloading  into the C.P.R. freight shed takes  place was disoussed and the Dominion Express Company will be  approached in the matter.  President Reid was in charge of  proceedings, assisted by Secretary  Hendorson, W. Crawford moving  the adjournmeht at high ten.  A party of ten young people drove  out to Canyon City on Friday night  last for a dance. They returned with  the milkman in fhc morning, yery  sleepy but contented, haying had a  swell time.  In making an announcement of  Creston's banner shipping day,- in last  week's issue, we did-not see any mention of the 653 crates from Duck Creek,  30 odd from Mather & Reid, and about  the same from Smith's fruit stop. We  have always been led to belieye that  we are included in Creswin. [The figures in "uestion cf>ver������'d shinmeiits  from Creston depot only.���������J_d.]  The annual meeting of the Wynndel  {SchooTDistrict was held on Saturday,  at 10 a"._tt., in the '-choolbouse.. In the  absence of the retiriner secretary the  chair was very ably filled by O. J.  Wigen. The only business transacted  was the reading of the accounts and  the election of a trustee and auditor,  which resulted in Mr; Bathie landing  the first and Norman Craigie the latter position. Mr. Bathie has since  been appointed secretary;  On receipt of word from the Dominion authorities sanctioning the  admittance of the necessary workmen from the United States work  will start on the wrecking of all the  between Port Hill  and  the end of  steel down Duck Creek way.  Over a week ago the Great Nor*  thern officials made formal application to J. C. Rykert, the Canadian  immigration official opposite Port  Hill, to bring in the men necessary  for the work. Mr. Rykert refused  the request on the ground that  Canadian workmen should -b-i employed in as large numbers as it is  possible to secure, and tfie railway  has guaranteed to take on .at least  fifty. With this assurance Mr.  Rykert wrote Ottawa, and as soon  as the official order issues a shift of  75 bridge men and about 125 other  laborers will eommence the work of  demolition.  It is proposed to take out all the  bridges, rails, ties, telegraph poles  and wires, fences, and all buildings,  removing ah usaoie material to the  divisional headquarters at Bonner's  Ferry, and reducing 4,he balance to  ashes.  As there is about fifteen miles of  track tc dismantle, alone which are  numerous bridofei? sn_*ill and lar^e  as well as some trestle work, even  with a gang of 200 men it will take  almost a month to complete the job.

Mr. Rykert,  however, has it on good authority  that everything will be cleaned up  on the job now about to be started.  The^estpn;b6ar4 of trade has  always advpca^d;;t||at a in oase; the  G.2SL refused to operate a train servicei the government should, expropriate the right of way and rebuild  it into a vehicular highway to connect this town with Port Kill. If  such a thing is to be accomplished  double-quick aotion will have to be  taken.   If the railway takes out all  the bridges, for instance, it would  be too costly an undertaking for the  government to undertake rebuilding for several years.  Some Kolowena ranchers* claim to  have oats and spring wheat soven feet  high,  Tho Columbia River Lumber Co.  mill at Goldon commenced sawing on  July 6th.

It   is  computed that at Trail, B.C., a refinery plant could  be.  established  for a  million   and   a .half   dollars,   and   the  cost of re fin ins the copper and manufacturing     the   brass would  be more  than compensated for by the saving in  price of the manufactured article.

The Germans were bombarding the  town when a shell struck, the factory  killing eighteen of the wounded, her  two assistants, and the sou of the  cook. The brave little woman bo-  came a captain. "Let all who can  walk save themselves." she cried iu  her consternation. With the tire extinguishers of the factory she fought  the flames in order to endeavor to  save the survivors. Then she occupied herself in ejptlini* tli.os:-; who  had escaped taken away to oilier  hospitals; and across .exploding shells  and llantes,' sho went to the registrar  to tell of tho deaths which had occurred.  Three days passed. -. She .had .re-!  mained all that time in the house]  with the dead, and then came the order to have thorn interred. Only one  army doctor would go into_ the place  This Frenchwoman and lie put the  ol dead bodies into their coffins, and  followed theni to the cemetery. Then,  when this doleful work was ended,  and she had no more wounded to care  for. she offered to go to Paris to get  a supply of bandages and dressings,  which had begun to be scarce..  Her proposal was accepted with joy  and her pleasing personality made  soldiers���������French and English���������without knowing anything about her  story, eager to facilitate lier journey.  She returned in course, and has continued to solace the misery in this������  large town which has been bombard- j  ed and burnt.

New  j York's shai*e of the total���������about twen-  i ty-five billions of dollars���������is so much  I larger than that of any other com-  ! mon wealth as to justify her title of  j the empire state.  The increase  of wealth in a greater  * ratio than growth of population means  I general  increase  is well being*.  Com-  , plaints about unfair concentration are  not well founded.

Plants have the power of converting inorganic substinces, that is the  water, soil and the air, into organic  substances. Animals caniiot do this.  They must live on vegetable food  or on other animals vflhich have lived  on vegetable matter. Plants can live  without animals, but animals cannot  indefinitely , exist without -'plant food-  Trees, like most plants, get a large  proportion of their nourishment from  the air in the form of carbon dioxide. This must be supplemented by  water and minerals which are derived from the soil. The leaves  absorb the gases of the atmosphere  and the roots absorb from the ground  water containing minerals in solution. - The water is transported to  the leaves through the outer or sap-  wood of the tree. By means of sunlight, the carbon dioxide and water  in the leaves are united and changed  into carbonhydrates (sap),which are  then transported through the inner  bark and distributed to the growing  parts of the plant, where they are  changed itov insoluble cell substance.     .������������������'"'  Trees do not grow throughout their  bodies as animals do, but only at  the tips of the branches and roots  and in a thin layer immediately, under the bark. If a nail is driven into  a  tree   trunk  it  will  always  remain  HORSE-  Your  bigger  grease  with  can  your wagons  tue same distance ironi the centr?  of the tree and from the ground.  Because the erowi. of an old tree is  higher above the ground than that  of a young tree, it is improperly believed that the whole trunk has  elongated. This is not the case. The  elevation of the crown is due to the  lower branches dying off: and new  ones appearing at the top.

Throughout these many months, however, the British fleet has played its  silent part in the great world tragedy  with   remarkable ,effectiveness. A: The  boasted modern navy upon which; Germany expended many years of -labor  and vast sums of money has been held  altogether useless in the seclusion of  strongly    fortified    German  harbors.  Meantime  German,  raiders   and  German commerce have been completely  driven from the high seas and it is  only by surreptitious means and under  cover  of  some  other  flag  that  that  nation     is  able, to  obtain  the  most  meagre imports from abroad- On the  other hana the 'woild-wi.de commerce  of Great Britain and her allies: goes  on without the slightest interruption  and  the Germans manifest their exasperation by their dastardly deed of  wholesale  murder  in  the   submarine  attack upon the Lusitania.-. Great Britain steadily imports the immense food  supply required :n war time, from all  corners, of the  globe;    without    the  slightest derangement; she purchases1  h.rses,   ariimunit-on,     weapons    and  every sort of supplies required under  existing conditions, .-.'from neutral na.-  tions and transports them to her own  shores as: safely and regularlyA as in  'times of peace. A She maintains a great  and crowded ocean, highway* of transportation  from  British  ports  to  the  ports    of France, along which many  hundreds of thousah d s -of .men 'jife being carried to and fro constantly as  well as incalculable ; amounts of; supplies and munitions of war, jwbile Germany stands aside gnashing' her teeth  in impotent humiliation'.i Britain mobilizes large and well equipped armies  in the overseas dominions and "'ithout  respect to the particular quarter of the  globe   whence   they   come,   launches  them in unarmed transports upon the  high   seas over which they travel in  perfect confidence through thousands  of i-tiles of frequented sea lanes, convoyed by a few men of war. Although  tl_a shores of Great Britain ere within  a few hours steaming of the hstrbors in  which the.great German fleet rides at  anchor, the shores of the *,Rig__rLit-  ..e.

When some hist' rian seriously undertakes to write the history of this  war", he will find it necessary to give  a foremost place in the narrative to  the phenomenal work accomplished in  the name of Great Britain by the genius of Admiral Jeliicoe and the untiring faithfulness of his officers and  men by moans of the consumption of  little or no munitions of war other  than the burning of" the coal necessary to keep his ocean sleuths moving  incessantly, up and y down ��������� day and-  night,-in storm and sunshine, off th-se  waters through which, if at all, the  German fleet must make' its way from  its haven to the high seas; ByAmeans  of its tireless watchfulnes.. .and its  silent self-restraint the British navy  is making for itself a record hitherto !  unequalled in all the glorious annuls '  of its byegone achievements.     .  _���������'���������������������������'������ _--^_*_._fs A_ae__*f_s%!

It is proved that in many parts or  Belgium the massacre* of the civil  population were delibsrately and systematically organized. Innocent civilians, men and women, were murdered  in large numbers, women violated and  children murdered. Looting, house-  burning, and wanton destruction of  property were ordered and counten-  aced by the German officers. Elabor-  te provision had been made for systematic incendiarism as a part of the  system of general terrorl/.ation. Tho  rules and usages of war were frequently broken, especially in using women  and children as a shield for advancing forces.* Wounded and prisoners  were killed and tho Red Cross and the  white Hag abused.  The report (which is issued in the  form of a 01-pagc pamphlet) is the result of the examination of more than  l,_00 witnesses, Belgians (mostly civilians) and British officers and soldiers. Nearly all the depositions were  obtained under the supervision of Sir  Charles Mathews, director of public  prosecutions, and of Mr. B. Grlmwood  Monrs, barrister. It Is added that sol-  dom did tho Belgian witnesses show u  desire to describe what thoy had sean  or Biifforod.

The Kaiser's friendliness to Jews  is instanced as an indication of his  essentially democratic nature. In this  connection he says that the Emperor,  even appointed to the responsible  post of minister of the uerman colonies a baptized Jew, Herr Dernbnrg,  "an: appointment which was ths  cause of one of the greatest scandals  that Berlin has ever seen."  On board his yacht in the Baltic  on Jiily 1, after leaning of the assassination of Grand" Duke-Ferdinand  the Kaiser seemed meditative, imperturbable. "This may be the last  holiday I shall enjoy for a long  time," he said to the writer. "Who  knows what the next, month may  bring us? Sometimes the necessity  arises for a nation to assert itself, if  only because she feels that otherwise others may do it to her disadvantage."  ���������*A spark mav-set lire to the whole  world."  "The Kaiser," said the narrator,'  "seemed to be brooding over some  plan." On July 2 the writer dined  with Moltke, head of the general  staff.  "The Emperor," said' tho general,  '���������has been deceiving us for years.  While pretending to be an adversary  of war, he has in.his own mind been  continually thinking of the Cay when  h2 could declare it."

Suddenly  the  war  has come and we bavg to adjust ourselves to'.-new-".conditions. People who  have  been living to  themselves  and  for   themselves   suddenly  find   themselves confronted by. a new situation.  The empire calls for men who are willing to sacrifice ever j thing, not merely  j for imperial existence, but for humanity.    But more, .the  empire calls for  food.   And this second; hut equally urgent; A and  important  call,  some  find  hard  to  understand.    We  have   produced food for ourselves and a surplus   for   our   profitable   export.     To  call for food as a patriotic jcontribu-  tion is perhaps the most difficult of  all to understand.    What is the first  thing needed?   Instruction, education,  (By C. C. James, C.M.G., Commissioner  of Agriculture).  For over a"year we have ^een celebrating  a hundred years    of peace-  Canadians of early stock must go back  four generations to find ancestors who  fought for their country.    In tens of  thousands of our families all Warlike  traditions have long since disappeared, and we had, become so accustomed to peace that, When war was declared, it took time for us to realize 3  that the, country  was. in .such  peril]  that that we were called upon really  to oif er our lives against thei attack of  a powerful enemy.   The scene of conflict  was   thousands   of  miles   away,  and many did not realize in fact do  not yet realize, that, our country is in  danger.   For three or four generations  we have felt safe and secure as apart  of the British empire, and hundreds of  thousands of our people stiii quietly   the placing of the full facts before ihe  go about their, business; confident that   people.   What, you say, .dp they really  the British navy wiii surely see us  safely through. Only now. as reports  of casualties reach us every day, is  the .war beginning to come home to  us. Considering these things, we realize why .French'and British reservists,  who had served their country across  the sea and who were moved by the  traditions of their family life, responded, so readily to the call to arms, and  why peace-bred and '., peace-nurtured  Canadians have moved less rapidly.  We had well-nigh given up the art  of war and we had become absorbed  in the peaceful building up of a new  country. We have not bsen called upon xo make sacrifices for the security  of our land and the safety of our  people. There has been developing  more and more among our people a  desire for wealth and office and personal preferment that has made us  somew;hat selfish, and there has been  observed of late a ten _e_.cy to specu-  r.eed to be told what is needed? My  answer to that is, there is just as  much need for information for the  people as to the material needs of the  empire as to have clearly set before  them the need for men to serve. Further, it is the duty of the governments  to see that full and correct information as to food conditions of the allies  and of the enemy be given to the people. What would have been said if no  such action had been taken? Surely  no apology, no explanation need be  given for a campaign to give the people the -fulies/i' and most reliable information along this line- As for linking up- patriotism v/ith production, I  shall not be one to deny to the farmers of Canada human feeling and  mental make-up equal to those of  workers in other lines. Rural patriotism emanating from full knowledge  of needs and opportunities may yet be  th. salvation of this country.

In addition to the permanent army  there are :    all times nine classes of  Allied    Navies    Have    Paralyzed the  y, Enemy's Shipping  The  magnitude   of    the    task  the  navies of the allied powers- have performed since the outbreak of the war  is in a measure indicated by the fact  that a year ago the" actual tonnage ot  Germany's  shipping .stood  second  in  the  world and.in    eight months the  German flag has been  swept off the  seas.    This means, says the Military  and Naval Record, that the enemy's  mercantile marine, which consisted ot  2,388 steam and sailing vessels, with  a  total  tonnage   of  nearly 5,500,000,  has  been  paralyzed    so    that, apart  from the fact that the enemy's food  supply has been jeopardized, tho in-  eome of the holders of shares has been  depleted  almost  to  vanishing  point.  This has already been shown by the  reports  of *feome   German   steamship  companies for 1914, and now the report   of   the   Iteederel   Aktieugesell-  schaft of Hamburg permits of a comparison in the case of sailing ships.  According   to   the   Financial     Times,  the  Reoderei  is  tho  biggest  concern  in Germany engage:l   in    the sailing  ship trade, and formerly had a wide  connection, mainly in South American  ports.

The  gross  receipts     slumped   from   1,333,000   to  459,000 marks,   and   the net revenue  after reducing the depreciation allowance from 61*1,500 to 110,900 marks,  comes    out  at  161,300  as compared  1 with   497,000   marks.

CRESTON, B.C., FHIDA-T, JULY 10  The Drive is Due  Now that the Russians have  checked the German advances  through Galicia news of the great  "drive," which was fixed in some,  quarters to commence early in May,  should be forthcoming shortly.  The comparative ease with whicli  the Russians were driven back in  the past two or three weeks admits  of no other conclusion than that the  Russia retirement was more a matter of tactics than necessity. The  enemy won too easily; so easily, in  fact, that we wonder how he failed  to penetrate Warsaw in the three  previous attempts.  Considered along with recent assurances that the Allies have no  lack of equipment this somewhat  prolonged series of Russian retreats  indicate that the Allies' higher  command on three fronts are working in perfect harmony, the object  being to create conditions under  which the enemy must fight battles  of decisive importance on three  fronts at the same time, at a time  and under conditions advantageous  to the Allies.  At the capital it is stated that  Russia eould at any time invade  German territory if they thought  such a step worth v. hat it v������**ould  cost, while the French military  leader, General Joffre, has promised to have the Germans out of  France by the first of the coming  vear.  go on losing seven men a minute,  as the Germans do without in the  end becoming exhausted.

Time Fights with Allies  Infertile Market Eggs  Time fights with the Allies. True  his co-operation so far has been  reither speedy nor spectacular���������  "slow but sure" being a favorite  maxim with the gentleman aforementioned.  To show where time has been doing his little bit for the empire the  military critic of the London Times  after careful research, during the  first   week   in   June,   states that  "serious as have  been the  casualties of  the British   troops  those of  Germany have been ten times more  numerous," which  by  now should  more than offset the numerical disparity    between    the    45,000,000  British    people    and     65,000,000  Germans.  The German losses up to June 1  were estimated as being considerably in excess of 3,000,000. Since  then the campaign in Galioia has  added nearly 400,000 to the roll of  killed, wounded and missing, so  that in eleven months of fighting  Germany must have lost in one  way or another more than 3,500,000  or about 11 percent, of her total  male population.  By doing some comparitivc estimating it is found that at tlio beginning of the war Germany hud  10,000,000 men between tho ages of  18 and 45 years. After deducting  th**** unfit an \vo\\ aq thnHO required  in r'ivil pursuits and the manufacture of uinnitioiiH of war, it looks  safe to nay that those 3,500,000  '���������umialti'-,.'* represent nearly one-half  of tho Gr>. mini population that is  lit and eun be uparerl for war.  Kven allowing i'or the return to  i,Wo fighting linn of a large propor-  lioii ������>f Mi.! wounded to the lighting  line thin tremendous strain must  tell in the, long run     Nr nation can  Editor Review :  Sir,���������Now that the breeding season  is at an end it is important that all  breeding males should be removed  from the pens, and either killed, sold  or isolated.  It is not true that the hens will not  lay so well when there is not a male  present. On the contrary, in most  instances the presence of male fowls  tends to reduce the egg yield.  Last year it was estimated that over  $3,000,000] was lost in the Dominion  through fertile eggs being marketed.  It does not take a much higher temp-  rature than 70 degrees to start incubation, and this temperature is often  considerably exceeded in the grocery  store windows. As is often the case,  when fertile eggs are exposed to the  heat it does not take long for incubation to start.  Cut down this loss, by removing the  male bird. Infertile eggs may become  stale and musty , when exposed to  strong odors, but they can never get  into the condition in which fertile eggs  are often found when broken by tho  consumer.  There is another reason why the  male birds should he got rid of at end  of breeding season, nnd that is because  it is expensive to keep them threo or  four months before disposing of them.  If marketed early tbey should net a  few cents a pound more and save, as  well, the fifty or sixty cents' worth of  feed which would be needed to keep  them till fall.  These remarks apply moro especially  to farmors who keep fowl as a sideline. Tho commercial poultryman  cannot afford to keep male birds any  longer than is absolutely necessary.  During the hot weather collect tho  egejH at. 1->iihIi twice daily, store them  in a cool, sweet place. An ogg shell is  very porus, and eggs will quickly tako  up any foul smells or odors.

It was held on Saturday morning and while not exactly  exciting was decidedly interesting in  spots.- The attendance was not large,  hardly thirty ratepayers being on hand  at anyone time, five of whom were  ladies.  Proceedings commenced shortly  after ten in charge of J. W. .Dow, the  the retiring trustee and the board's  presiding genius during the year just  closed, After very briefly outlining  tha purposes for which the meeting  was called, asked for nominations for  a chairman for the meeting, ana after  a dozen gentlemen had been proposed  R. S. Bevan was finally prevailed upon  to act, with Mrs. Mallandaine as secretary.  The financial statement, which appeared in last week's Review was also  on the blackboard for further consideration and after little direct criticism  was adopted, as were the minutes of  the last annual meeting and the special  meeting on August 29th, at which  Mrs. Mallandaine was elected for the  unexpired portion of'Trustee Lamont's  term.  The discussion of the budget was  very wide, including a statement as to  minor improvements this year, such  as kalsomining or painting the interior  walls, putting the furnace in better  shape, installing a drinking fountain,  and a debate as to whether the principal is the right man in the right  place, so to speak. Being human, Mr.  Macdonald, of course, bus his faults,  but the criticism of his handling of the  school offered at the mooting was, on  the whole, of such minor importance  that ono cannot help but endorse the  view of a numbor of speakers that  providing his work with the pupils  shows up well whon examination results are announced tho ratepayers  should commond the board for retaining tho services.  A good-natured chairman also  allowed a groat deal of latitude on tho  discussion of teachers' Hitlarios. The  trustees recommended a sin to of pay  as follows: Principal, $105 por month;  Division IL. $75; Division III., $70;  Division IV., $05. l_:uit year the pay  shoot was $105, $105, $70, $70, with an  average attendance for tho term 22,81,  20, 30 in the DIvlNlnn-ordcr previously  mentioned. The muller wuu finally  disponed of on a motion by Dr. Hond-  erson-W. Jackson which carried by a  vote of ltJ to 8 (all the ladies voting  nay) fixing tho salaries for the ensuing  term at $105, $R0, $70, $70.  Speaking at tills juncture J, F. Homo  thought that. In view of prevailing  financial conditions and knowing that  only throe pupiln were taking second-  year high '>chool work, the superior  school work should ho dropped entirely and the otaif out to three teachers.  The debate on this point was quite extended and developed the fact that  while the attendance was a little slim  for four teachers it was a bit heavy for  three. Besides as at present equipped  the rooms were not adiapted to such a  change, and in view of. the small  reduction it would make in the average tax-payment the move was not  approved.  The amount necessary iox- this ie_s_--  operations was placed at $3,000 which  the treasurer thought would suffice if  taxes were pretty fully paid. Failing  this financing would be a serious problem on a $3,000 vote.  The meeting very wisely decidect-.to  attach a salary of $50 to the office of  secretary-treasurer.

As yet it is a subject of  which, comparitively little is  definitely known, but  the practical  experience  of fruit growers  through- j  out the  world, and for many  years  back, certainly confirms the belief that  summer pruning  induces fruitf ulness  when properly and opportunely done.  Whether or not   summer   pruning  tends to develop fruit buds it is obvious  that tbe practice is of great assistance  in shaping the tree arid by opening up  the tree to sunlight at the latter part  of the  growing season in  developing  color in the fruit; also in reducing the  amount of winter   pruning that- is  ordinarily necessary." _  In shaping certain erect growing  varieties it is necessary to head back  to outer growing lateral limbs in order  trees the proper spread,  here is that it is often  impossible to head back to a lateral  without  cutting back   into two year  The city of rep_sia.ud is restricting its  tenderloin district to a few places.

Summer  pruning opens up the tree so that sunlight has access to the fruit during  the ripening season. This is of really  great advantage, resulting as it does  in better, colored fruit.  The time for sumnaer priming depends bhythe advancement of the season and bn the cohditionof the trees.  For most sections in British Columbia  it would probably be between the first  and middle ot July. If the px-mviiig is  done too early it will, defeat its aim  sneouraging thefornmtum of Wood  rather than of fruit buds. If done too  late it forces out growth that has not  tin e to ripen and is killed during the  winteri  Methodof Pruning   .  It^isnot adyisables -to suminer'prune  if the' trees have not made a fair growth inasmuch as lack of .growth indicates lack of vigor* and summer pruning might aggravate this condition.  Having determined that a tree needs  summer pruning, lightly head back all  vigorous * growing terminal shoots.  Inner shoots that cross or otherwise  crowd each other, or that are not desired head back to two buds of the  current seasons growth. Of the shoots  produced. On the lateral branches,  allow from "two to three well placed  ones to remain to form additional  frame work for the tree, but head  them back slightly, any others head  back to two buds with , the" idea of  their forming fruit spurs.  Among pears it is very common to  find trees producing large numbers of  fruit buds at the terminals and if the  trees are pruned in the spring it is  done at the sacrifice of a large percentage of the crop, Lightly heading  back the terminal growth nf such varieties at a favorable thns during "the  snmmer will do much to cause the  development of such fruft buds to  occur lower down on the branches.

"Of all my friends." said she pite  ously, "you seem to be the only one  left, Master Hampdon."  "I have been your faithful servant  always, Mistress*Luey," I answered as  1 ushered her into the hall.  I delivered my little misiress to her  woman, who came at my call, and then  I summoned the butler and steward  and told them what had happened. In  a moment all was confusion- They  brought the body of Sir Geoffrey back  to the castle, whicli was no longer his.  As the duke had said, it was mortgaged to its full value. Everything  that he could get liis hands on had  been sacrificed to liis passion for play.  After the inquest and after a due interval for decent respect for the dead  there was a great funeral, of course,  during whicli what little ready money  there was available was of necessity  spent. The gentry came for miles  around. Even Luftdon was there in  the background, although Arcester  had the decency to keep away, i was  there, too, finding ���������?. place among the  upper servants of the household. I  happened to be immediately back of  Mistress Lucy. From under her veil  she shot a forlorn, grateful look at ine  as she came in.  Sir Geoffrey, except Mistress Lucy,  was the last of his race. The brave,  line old stock had at last, been reduced to this oiie slender slip of a girl.  Kith or kin, save of the most distant,  she had none, nor did she enjoy much  acquaintance. She had never been  formally introduced to society. Sir  Geoffrey had loved her nnd had been  kind enough to her in his careless  magnificent way, but she had been left  death   of  her  she wore  "The point is," Mistress Lucy said,  as. Master Ficklin bowed deferentially  toward her. "that I have nothing."  "'Nothing'from you.* father, madam."  "tsut my mother's estate?"  "I regret to say/' said Master Ficklin. "that most of it has been converted into money and lost by your father.

"Exactly, so that it-is at your present disposal."  "What shape is it in?"  'It is invested in consols."  "Can they be realized upon?"'  "Instantly."  "To advantage?"  "Most certainly."  "I thank you, Master Ficklin, for  your provident care of my little fortune. It is most unexpected," she faltered.  "Believe me, Mistress Lucy, it is a  happiness to do anything    for you,"  said the old attorney, rising and gathering up his papers and bowing low  before her.   "You may command me in  everything.    A temporary loan or���������"  "Thank you,  Master Ficklin,"  said  Mistress Lucy; "you touch me*greatly,  hut  I  need   nothing   at  present.   My  father made me an allowance and generally paid it.   It was a generous one,  and, living alone as 1 did, I  did not  spend  it.    I    have    a  few   hundred  pounds in my own name at the bank,  and with that for temporary use and  my mother's legacy I shall lack nothing."  'But where will you live, Mistress  Canadian Horses and War  Light  Saddle   Horses  Giving  Way  to  the Heavy Draught Type  The   English    government     agents  who   are   buying  horses   in    Canada  for tho war express an opinion that  the   heavy   or   draught  horses   there  are uot onlv more numerous but are  also more  suitable  for    the purpose  indicated    than    are  those  intended  for the cavalry.    The lighter type of  steeds  do   not   seem   to  ba. bred  on  so   large   a   scale   as   formerly.     An  explanation put forward is that what  may    he     termed  riding  horses  are  not so much in request    at the present  time iu  Canada,    as  many  people   who   used   to   ride   a   great   deal  now use    motor cars, which are obtained .   pretty   cheaply.     The     long  Canadian winter, too, does not serve  specially   to     encouarge    the   equestrian habit-   In some parts, of course,  the hack is still more or less indispensable;  men once addicted to saddle exercise    do not  readily give it  up.    They  appreciate  its  value  notably  from a health    point  of  view.  That these agents should have found  a certain shortage of horses suitable  for   riding���������that   is,  'well     bred   and  broken,  with  good mouth  and  manners���������-does not appear to surprise the  native experts, who are familiar with  the  situation as briefly outlined. On  the other land, the heavy horses are  spoken of in terms of commendation.  They5 are   capable  of  doing  a great  deal of work;    they are honest and  enduring,    generally   sound   enough;  and,    when brought into    something  approaching    hard    condition,    they  may   be    relied upon, as the saying  is, to "pull their load.'-'���������ABritish Live  Stock Journal.

Mir    Geoffrey    wait Iho  If seasons were all identical one  could plan to get the same results  with the same treatment year after  year, but conditions vary so that ordinarily the crop is materially affected  by any deviation from the regular season. The shortage of early chickens  last fall was a marked example of this  fact.  Before starting the season's hatch-*  ing, which is usually the big factor in  the year's work, the condition of the  breeders must have the closest consideration. Here is involved the task  of having the breeders in the pink of  condition when the hatching eggs are  to be secured. The best eggs for this  purpose will be secured from the  hens when they are in the best physical condition. If they are run down  from too much showing or from forcing for egg production they will not  become physically fit until well on in  the season. We would consider it  easier to hatch chicks in December  if the breeders were in fine fit then  and carry them through a month more  of winter w.eather than to hatch in  January from the same birds if they  had lost their snap- The chicks with  one month less of "winter to go through  with a weaker start would be harder  to handle than the sturdier chicks out  of eggs laid when the hens were most  physically fit.  So much is dependent on the good  qualities of the male that we consider  one of the first considerations of safety is the selection of the male.    He  cannot be  too  good,   either,  from   a  standpoint of the productiveness of his  parents or his own constitutional vigor.   We believe this to be true no matter  what- branch  of poultry work is  contemplated,     fancy   or   utility.     A  weak, well finished male may produce  something nice mated with strong females, but it takes the most careful after-selection to keep up the vigor and  prevent the lowering of the vitality or  the progeny on account of the introduction of the bird lacking vitality. As  a general  plan we  consider  it wise  to select the very best type of male  and mate to him such females as will  affect his faults by the qualities they  may show that he is lacking.. At the  same time it is a help to remember  that the more nearly alike two birds  are the more nearly alike should the  progeny  be.    Great  extremes cannot  produce a great proportion of similarity and require longer careful breeding  to  utilize  the  original  traits   of  value in both specimens.  Having our breeders selected it is  advisable to make sure that their environment is all that could he desired  to give all the natural comfort they  need to keep them vigorous and capable of reproducing themselves in the  largest possible way. By this Ave do  not mean that lavish expense must be  made for the birds- Very frequently  tha simple conditions are much more  result-getting than extravagant conditions, and require less production to  make a profit.  The housing must be of a nature  to provide great abundance of fresh  air and sunlight at all times of the  year. The temperature is not important, hut tlie.birtls must be protected  from stormy winds and ba well  well protected when on the roosts at  night. Males that we carry over the  winter get out every day and most of  the time have nothing but snow for  drinking water. We know of no method that has made hardier, sturdier  breeders tlion this rough treatment of  the males.     ���������  While the male is half tho pen, tho  best nuils that could he secured could  not possibly produce dependable stock  unless the females were also of a high  calibre. Good females with good 11111103  that will mate well with them make  the best selection for building up a  sturdy (lock.  Having tho pens tnlccled and mated  and everything in order so that thoy  will be in good condition to produce  oggs that are capable of hatching  strong, sturdy chicks It'becomes necessary to plan ahead so as to have  everything in readiness to give these  chicks every opportunity of making  tho bust growth..

But s  short time ago we heard of a very  Successful poultryman who had made  in a few years $20,000 .to $30,000 whe  found  it necessary    to  abandon  his  plant   on account of the impossibilits  of  getting  the   same   growth  in  bJsy  young atock due to soil contamination- .  When this occurs oh a farm with rear  sonably good management how much  easier can  it occur  where the.runs  are smaller and the birds more closely confined all the year round- By using  the  proper precautionary measures this tendency may    be entirely  prevented and a benefit to both the  fowls and the soil from the treatment  to  prevent  this  contamination   from  constant use without any treatment  By   frequently  turning  the  soil   and  occasionally treating with air slacked  lime and sowing to a  crop such aE  oats, rape or any other quick growing  vegetation, the trouble will be entirely  prevented and no evidence of soil or  stock deterioration exist from soil contamination.

If all people could appreciate fully  this  fact' the country  would have  a  much  larger  poultry crop to  record,  and   more   good  breediiyg  specimens-  for the next season's operations. "After the hatching is overawe find most  people give  their poultry! less  attention than perhaps at any other time 01  the year.   This is a great mistake for  there perhaps is no period of the yeai  that is more trying to the birds than  the    hot    summer    months.     Fresh  water, shade, proper non-heating fooo  are most essential now and above all  quarters that are sweet    and    clean,  wide open to all the fresh air they,  can get.    It is not reasonable to expect that the stock may be neglected  for a couple of months and then extr_  care may be given with expectation?  of the best results.   No, the care must  be-_,given all the year    round or the  greatest  possibilities  cannot be realized.    When the breeding season is  over it is time to begin to think ol  the  next  season  and  do  everything  possible to prepare the breeders foT  the next year's work.   They should be  started on their moult early enough to  have them entirely through before it is  time for cold weather".

' A man who does hot raise or  .feed some livestock; who does not  have a proportion of colt-raising mares  among his horses, who does not have  a manure spreader working on schedule or a few sheep to clean up, is  not a real farmer and is not getting  more than a fraction.- of the return  he would otherwise get- The banker-  farmer -who' is not alive tb or who is  partly ^responsible for this, situation  and does not attempt to improve it, is  not a real banker. v ���������  As soon as. b������ie iivesuGCiv ^armer _.as,.  made a good start, cue sixo <i2u psvcu  feed lot must follow.

It has  been grown successfully in the Lethbridge district for the past dozen  years. The total acreage now well  exceeds 10,000 acres. On the Canadian pacific Railway Company's irrigated lands in the Strathmore and  Gleichen districts it is being introduced more slowly. Everything in-,  dicates, however, that it can ba profitably raised there, provided care  is exercised iii ascertaining tin  source of the seed so that only hardy  types, are used, and proper cultural  operations in the manner and time  of irrigation are employed. ^ -  Alfalfa is peculiarly adapted to irrigation. It produces large crops  each year and owing to the fact  that a stand will la'st for many years  after it is sown, it is very profitable  there being no expense attached to  it except irrigating and harvesting  :the crop.:;  To get the best results tlia^land  should be irrigated for each crop or1  cutting. The yield depends entirely on  the care exercised in irrigating,'.that  is, no parts of the field should be missed and -no parts over-irrigated sufficiently to injure the crop. In this connection it must also he mentioned that, .according .������6 reports in  the "spring of 1914, fall irrigation is  not a safe practice in--all' districts.  The average_ yield per acre on the  Experimental Farm, Lethbridge, since  -1909 (the first fields were sby,*n in  1908) of field-cured hay has y been  just a little over five tons peryacre.  Some tests have been made to ascertain the best quantity of seed to  sow. The results obtained are given  in the following tables. The plots  were all sown alone, no nurse, crop  of grain being used.  The farm A superintendent recommends using from 15 to:; 20 pounds  of. seed per_acre. If conditions, are  very favorable, i.e.; if good rains  come just after the seed is sown, less  will do, but as it is a crop that will  remain a long time on the land and  one that will not thicken but rather  is apt to become thinner as it becomes older, a liberal supply of seed  is usually true economy. The hay  from a thick stand has finer stems  and so is better in quality.

'Some time ago," Mr. Hill continued, "I had a very sore back. , It  started from a cold and I suffered for  six months with it. I also had stiffness in my joints and cramps in my  muscles* and I felt heavy and sleepy  after meals. * My appetite was fitful  and my limbs were heavy- Then I  decided .to try Dodd's Kidney Pills.  I took four- boxes and received great  benefit from them. That's why I recommend Dodd's Kidney Pills."  Every one of Mr. Hill's symptoms  showed that his trouble was of the  Kidneys. That is why he got such  benefit from Dodd's Kidney Pills. They  are no cure all, but they do cure sick  Kidneys, and the Kidneys are the  keystone of health.
