CRESTON, B. C,   FRIDAY.   JAN.  23    1914  Sincce Copies 50,  Edmondson, president of Creston Farmer's  e Secretary  FOREST FIRE  LOSSES FOR 1913  The lowest level of fores'- fire loss  on record in Canada was reached this  year on Dominion Forest Reserves in  Western Canada. From the first Of  Apri] to the end of September several  of those reserves eseaoed without a  siugle fire over ten aerr s iu extent, the  smaii fires that did occur being extinguished by the rangers before occasioning any damage to standing  timber. On the Rocky Mountains  Forest Reserve, which bag an area of  13,873 ."856'a-reg. the fire-loss anion riled  to but. 1150 acres of young timber  of only potential value and $150 worth  of mature timber. The total area burnt  over, more ,than half of which was  cut-over or grass land, was .but. 3,010  acres, representing only 0 02 per cent  of the area of this reserve. On the  Dominion" Forest reserves in British  Columbia, which have a total area of  2 420,480 acres not a single fire succeeded in spreading over a larger area  -than ten acres, and the only green  timber injured-by fire was four acres  of. young lodgepole pine. The records  are not ye;;" complete for Saskath-wan  and Manitoba, bat tbe available fig-  urea compare favorably with the ones  cited. The above figures also compare  favorably .with corresponding ones on  ���������Reports  for   Year   Most  Satisfactory���������Balance in Bank  I<ast Friday evening the Auditorium was. the scene of  one of the most rousing meetings that Creston has wittness-  ed for many a day, the occasion being the annual meeting  of the Creston Farmers Institute.  Rumors of a contest had the effect of bringing out all  the reserves and some new  members were added to the roll  **���������*  which stands now over jiq.  \ * *-    ���������'.������������������'���������  The meeting was called to order about 8:45 by J. Hayden , President and the business began.  T. M. Edmondson spent some time telling the members what the government was doing to help the agriculturist and referred to the Institute as a good thing, advising his  hearers to hang on. The Airing of the dirty linen came next,  and we believe the Institute is all the better today for the  process.   .._������������������������������������,���������:��������� ���������* '������������������������������������'.,.";���������  A resolution was adopted setting the hour for starting the meetings as 8 oxlock.  Secretary Lidgate presented his report which was perhaps the most satisfactory part of the whole meeting. It  showed that the Institute, aVhough at times, like all other  business houses in these stringent times, suffering from a  lack of funds, had at all times managed to meet outstanding  obligations, even at personal sacrifices, and at the close of  the year had a small balance to its credit in the bank; There  are also some goods on hand which can be easily converted tbe National Forests of the United  into coin of the. realm and some   personal   property, which j s*** J^fe the area>rneb in 1913  ' " '' ' j aicnomjn tne smallest in  recent years,  while it shows depreciation,  is still a realizable asset.

This report was received with great applause and the  auditors reported that they had examined,^ the books and  found everything correct.  Ejection ;of officers came next. Messrs. Edmondson  and Heath were nominated for president and Edmondson  elected. J. Heath was elected Vice-President by acclamation.  J. A. Lidgate was re-elected secretary by acclamation.       '  . The following were elected Directors: ,T. Goodwin, A,  D. Pochin, W. A. Pease, E. Holmes, J. Adlard.  N  Auditors: S. E. Watson and J. Blinco.  President Edmondson assumed the chair and thanked  the members for the trust imposed iti him.  ��������� He mentioned the question of the government seeking -advice on the matter of adopting the American apple  box in preferaijce to the Canadian. President called J.  Compton to the front. Mr. Compton explained the differ-  ���������enceinthe measurment of the boxes. The American box  holds; a few; pounds more fruit. It will allow for a greater  variety of packs. It is two inches shorter which means that  both sides, top aud bottom will be stronger. It is of the  same size and shape ap tomato  and other boxes and in conse-  quence will be handled and stored more easily.  ' '    ' ���������    * ������VV**'  Secretary Lidgate read .& letter fiom  the Okanagan  Growers showing that they recommended the American box  ���������  -and a resolution was carried that we instruct our delegate to  Victoria to express our desire the 1914 packing sclipol be in-  structed-iu the use of (he American box.

They assessed them-  qfilvfis one-oiip.rter of a cent per acre,  engaged an elhoiont forester,  and iu-  rftalled a   thoroughly  supervised  and  equipped   patrol   on   their   combined  no.dings of  ovor  7,000,000 aores.   So  ^uocoBsful were they even iu one short  rieason/that tlie membership was considerably onlargeil the following spring  and tlmbor-limit holders  on adjacent  watersheds also beoamo  imbned with  the   co-operative   idoi.

My ducks sleep on a dry earth  floor. A. Ducks quickly go 'off their lega  on. damp, hard or cold, floors. Their plaster droppings make it almost impossible to keep an earth floor dry unless It  is continually scraped and something  spread over it to dry the moisture.  .Their feet get cold quickly, and they  can't stand that, li you bed your *  quacks dry and deep their lameness  will cease.  Q. Why ia the Cayuga duck, the only  true American duck, not more populac  in this country? It certaihiy la fine  eating. A. Its feathers are black.  American cooks bate black pin feathers, and a black duck is horrid to pick.  Q. I have noticed that fowls at shows  often get the feather eating habit and  thus pass it around when.they return  home. Is this paused by laekoi an  element in ration or what? A. Fowls  at shows are idle. They have nothing -  to do but endure the "public gaze.' So  they /ust form themselves Into mutual  admiration societies and proceed to remove each others garments.  Q. Would' ybu recommend sawdust *���������  for scratch material and for thevdrop������  ping boards? A? For neither. On th������3  floor it will get mixed with the feed,  , and that means indigestion and death.  ,Q* I> have pure bred Brown Leghorn  chicks' here whose parents show no  sign of white and didn't wben young,  and yet these young ones show soma  white in tail, wing and breast. Wha9  could cause it? A. Likely overcrowding at night. They may molt them  out before adult age.  Church  Notices  METHODIST CHURCH  Publio Worship, 10;80-and 7:80 P. M.

It is said the egg trust, ia attempts  to block the Householders' league in  its crusade against bigh prices, ship.  ped large quantities of eggs over into  Canada and paid a duty on them ot  1*_ cents:<per dozen. There were too  many eggs, however, for these exports  to affect the supply, and the women  come out ahead, anyhow.  Tbe farmers' wives of this country  produce most of our billion dollar  poultry product, and tbe government  tells ns the farm hen averages but sixty eggs per year. Tbe thoroughbred:  hens at the Storrs (Cobn.v and Missouri egg contests averaged 153 and  134 per hen respectively. We do uot  agree that the farm hen lays but sixty,  eggs per year, but it's a sure thing  that iff more farmers bought their  wives. pure bred birds the farha poultry products and poultry profits would  boom immensely.  This year at the Allentown (Pa.) fai*  prizes will be .offered for the laying  and meat tyna nf cb?cksB. The win-  ners in the meat type will be killed ant]  dressed after the .'ribbons are up. so"  the farmers and fanciers may see what  the judge considers a No. 1 type of  maricet chicken is. 1  There is a movement on foot to stfj  cure state aid for poultry shows.

Some farmers will spend $100 to rjatt  the man who stole n bushel of corn,  but tbey won't spend a red cent for  traps, poisons or repairs to stop tho  rats and mice that devour nnd.-destroy*  bushels and bushels of grain in tbo  fields, and barn, and granary, nnd corn-  crib, and cellar on tbelr farms every  year. ���������  A case holding tli'lrty dozen eggs is.  most too large to be tilled promptly  from the average farm flock, tbua  there is often a wait before tbe caso  is filled and part of the eggs deteriorate.
