Paper Read   Before   Farmers'   Institute,    pCourtenay,     by     Mr.  Arnold of Chilliwack,  Mr. cha'rinan ladies and gentlemen: <  I am glad to have the opportunity of being here this ' evening, not only as this is  my first visit to Comox, but also to have  the chance of meeting with others who are  interested in the subject of Poultry Keeping  And I hope to-night you will give me your  own views on the subject that we may derive mutual benefit, and also that you will  ask me any questions that may occur to you'  which I will endeavor to answer to the best' ���������  of my ability. I.do' not pretend to be infallible on-the question and my paper does  not cover half that; might be said; but I have  endeavored to keep to the practical part of  the subject,' as much as-possible,_ and anything I do not touch' on I hope you will  bring up yonrselves, if desired.  Before commencing on the  subject of the  care and management of poultry for  winter  #egg production I  would   say   a   few words  on Poultry  Raising .and its importance' to  farmers in  British  Columbia-    We  are,   it  seems to me,   missing  our  opportunities in  this province, as  there is a large  demand  for"eggs and poultry all the year   at remu--  nerative prices: and yet the  largest  part of  the eggs and poultry consumed cornea  from  'Ontario'.       They   are  - shipped    hero   -by'  carload the money which  should remain   in  the Province goes back-^to Eastern Canada;  and yet the prices hero for sggs at any 'rate  range higher -thaa in any \other  part   ot the  Dominion.,- In winter' they   sell   at   whole-,  sale at-prices from 40 to 50 cunts per   dozen  aud tne average price for the year  is   about  25 cents per dozen or over; whereas in E ist-  ern Canada, 'J5Q cents pur dozen ia considered a good price in winter aud S to  12  cents  in summer.    I io not understand why  this '  should be as there is little  d fikrenee in  the  prices of grain and other foods, and the  climate here is greatly in our favor as   we   do  not       have       to-      contend     with     .the  cold winters as experienced in the east.    It  is not that  the  poultry  business does  not  pay.'   I think if you were to keep  accurate  account of the amount of food fed  to  fowls  and also the pigs and cows,   and  then keep  a credit account of all  products  sold   from  the hen, pigs and cows, you  would iiud the  aecouut standing greatly to the favor of the  hen and well on the  credit  side.    I should  never have taken up Poultry as I have,   had  I not seen by actual figures what  they  c;>n  be made to do.    Some  years  back   I  kept  account for one year of all   grain consumed  by my hens, pigs and cows, and I was great  X  Ij astonished to find that fowla consumed  far less iu comparison to the profits recun'-jd  The total euponditure on 41) heus was about  ������40; amount produced in eggs and poultry  valued at the yrices ruling iii each mourh  was S120, so that after payi.ig for food la-  borj interest on plant, etc., there was considerably over ������1 00 per lien profit. Since  then I have managed to make hens give as  good results, though I have been keeping a  larger number and hope this year with the"  200 hens I have to have even better results.  1 feel sure that with c.roful attention poultry culture, counting the investment required, will pay the largest per cent of any  branch of farming.  Start right at the co.muencement of poultry culture : We must have good buildings,  not necessarily expensive but of good ciz?,  warmly built and placed in a warm location;  as one cannot expect to have eggs in winter  which is the time yon want them most with  out the fowls are kept warm and comt.stable. Thove is less clangor from roup, or  other diseases! attacking the flock when thoy  are not exposed to drafts and dampness. A  house that I siiould recommend and one  that I find myself to be very convenient and  cheap is a house about 10 x o0 feet divided  into two compartments by a wire partition, I  5 feet at back and 8 feet in front with   dou-  ���������  ble walls shiplap, an air space of 4- inches  between the studding and lined inside the  first layer of boards with tar paper,ordinary  lean to roof shingled, and close sheeting  with tar paper' under the shingles. The  roosts, nests aud dropping boards a.e all re  nioval������l������ for conveniences in *pra>iug, and  the nests are turned with the entrance- to  the wall and a a^ ing board over the top,  so as to be nearly dark l!o prevent epg ea -  ing; the sloping board being to keep the  hens from roosting on the nests. The only  fixtures are the upi ights . and cross pieces  for the nests, roosts and dropping boards to  rest on. " Speaking of   dropping   boards   I  think they ^should all'be used  where   possi-  1 , 1  ble for convenience,in cleaning" the houses  and to prevent" the straw on tlie floor from  getting soiled and damp, which would prevent the hens'using it for scratching in���������a  great necessity in winter, if one wishes winter eggs, as the fowls should be,-given as  much exercise as "possible," and all grain  should be thrown in the straw so that the"  hens have to work to get it,' which , keeps  them busy and contented: ' \ However, I am  wandering from my subject, a3 we have  not yet reached the hens' house. Such as I  have just described, should accomodate 60  fowls, 30 in each compartment.  Coming to the que&tion of stock there are  many different breeds to   choose from, they  1 -     j, ' ���������   '  are usually- divided into three   classes :   the  Asiatics,   Americans   _aud   Mediteraneans.  The first include   'well-known birds like the  Branuhs, " Langsharis,    and - Cochins ;   the.  second, Plymouth Blocks arid 'VVyandottes ;  the   third,    the   Leghorns,"   Minorcas   and'  Black Spanish.    1   have   only   enumerated  ' the better kxiown varieties in evioh'clriSB.*-' 11  do not wish to enlarge on the valuw   of  any  particular breed, as each   breed  when   wel  taken care of give  good   results ;   but   the  Plymouth Rocks and Wy������ndottes are generally known as the   general   purpose   fowls,  combining good laying with good table qual  iti a.    The Mediterauear. class are generally  conceded to be the   best   all-round   lavers.  I^am keeping the White Leghorns for laying  purposes and find them   very   satisfactory.  I have also barred Rocks, bnt intend to  get  White   Wyaudottes  instead,   as   they   are  more suitable for forcing   for early broilers,  being always fat aud plump after   they   are  about   a   pound   in   weight; whereas   the  Rocks take a, little longer  to   mature,   and  off their legs if   forced   too   fast.'   Ac   any  rate   if   one   can get well   bred   fowls   of  any of the above varieties, I think they  can  be  made fco give good results under   proper  care, but I should   strongly  advise   getting  well bred fowls in preference  to  scrubs ; as  I have found by  personal   experience   that  they will lay about double   as   many   eggs.  In a pen of 45 White   Leghorns   I   got   as  many as 24 eggs this winter per day, .vh.;e-  as     a. pen   of   half ,.-breed*,. \. contaiuing  40    fowls  .were   only   laying     6    or     7  eggs per day.    To a certain extent this   was  owing to difference in feed,    but   not   altogether.    I was feeding   cut   bone   twice   a  week to the 45 Leghorns,   and   the   othi rs  had only meat instead, bub when   the   L-g-  horns wore not getting bono they   continual  laying over double-the quantity.    Ey selecting the best layers every year  as   breeders,  one can get hens to average over 200 eggs   a  year to the hen.     Last year I packed our, IS  of my beat Leghorn hens for breeding   purposes and had them fenced in,   closely   con-  iined 10 a pen 30 X 120 feat by wire netting  they laid av high as IS eggs a day and averaged 14 fco 15 right'along,to the end   of   the  breeding���������about four   m<>nr,h=>���������when   they  were let out with the others and I ceased to  keep any record of their eggs.

A supply of charcoal will often prevent  sickness.  Eggs aro flavored to a great extent by  What the hens eat.  Do not compel fowls to roost in close,  hot quarters during tho summer.

To answer  these childish inquiries is not always easy,  as every ono knows, nor is it wise to discourage the questionings. Sometimes it ia  the simple little interrogations that are  hardest to give replies to, such',' as ' Why  may I eat with my fork and not with my  knife?' and 'Why must I take soup from  the side of the spoon instead of from the  end?' To this last I have found that a  practical illustration serves best' to show  why. I put the child beside some ono else  at the table and allow him to take his  soup or porridge from the ond of the spoon.  Of course his elbow, extended as he brings  the spoon in line with his mouth, will  |ostle his neighbor or will threaten to do  so. The child can readily see that this is  unpleasant, especially if sonio one will sit  .on his other side and incommode him in  the same way. Ho thus learns that the  comfort of' other people at the tablo is  largely dependent upon his own good behavior.

A close observer of human lifo on Broadway has mado an important discovery.  "Just watch tho squads of women," he  said, "at tho different downtown crossings who wait for tho 'big policemen of  the forco to pi tot them across tho street.  Every now and then you'll see a bunch of  them start to cross at a certain point, then  suddenly, stop and walk a block or two  one way or the other beforo they make tho  grand charge. Then keep your eyo on  them after they cross, and you'll see them'  deliberately walk back tho same distanco  on the other side. I asked a lady friend  to explain it.- What,do you think sho told  inc? That the women have learned to  distinguish between tho cavaliers and the  rough diamonds on the force, and they  patroniz'o tho coppers with a genteel, gracious stylo of escort rather than place  themselves. at tho mercy of a big fellow  with no official graces about him. Somo  of tho force, they say.catoh a woman as a  dog would a rat and hustle her across as  if she was being rushed into a patrol wag -  on on tho way to jail.' Force of habit, no  doubt.

Leaving her homo in  Providenco'in April, 1897, she covered  30,000 miles of land and sea by tho following Christmas. ' Sho went across this continent, and from San Francisco sailed for  Hawaii, where sho gave some talks on  travels in .the north and in various parts  of tho world. Then sho went on to Samoa  and visited Mrs. Robert Louis Stevenson.v  She spent some timo in ' studying the life  and character of tho natives, visiting a  largo extent of territory. The next islands  .visited were the Fiji group. Two women,  natives of tho capital, princesses of their  tribes, were found to be well educated, of.  agreeable manners and rather,pretty, being of a typo which is a cross between the  whites and Malays. These women, whoso  grandfathers wero cannibals, gavo a formal  dinner to 12 white women in Mrs. Colcleugh 's honor. Australia was included  in her itinerary, and sho returned home  from Auckland by way,of San Francisco.  In 1894 Mrs. Colcleugh made a trip into  the arctic circle and in 1895 to Labrador.  ���������Woman's Journal.  A Woman Did It.  How did the French come into Sicily'  A woman did it, says an exchange. At a  festive entertainment held at a French  court Beatrice, countess of Savoy and  wife of Charles of Anjou, the brother of  Louis IX of. France, was removed from  the superior range of seats occupied by her  two younger sisters, tho queen of France  and the queen of England. Mortified by  tbe humiliation, she returned to her apartments and burst into tears. Upon learning the causo of her chagrin and her saying that she would bo willing to give up  her life to confine her tresses for ono hour  beneath a diadem, Charles embraced her  affectionately and said, "Set your heart at  rest, countess, for before long I will make  you a greater queen than either of your  sisters.'' So ho promised her. He defeated Manfred, the last of tho Norman kings,  and caused Conradino, the great-grandson  of the Emperor Frederick, to be mercilessly slain, he'himself and Beatrico witnessing the scene. Upon the death of his  brother Charles became king of Naples,  thus fulfilling the cherished desire of his  wife for a diadem.���������New York Sun.  Ancient Hindoo Women.  Hindoo women in ancient India onjoyed  a state of complete independence, perfect  liberty. They wero highly respected and  encouraged to pursue tho life they deemed  best. They wero not even compelled to  marry. There was evidonce that ladies  cultivated literature and philosophy, and  in tho humbler walks of life wives walked  side by side with thoir husbands and male  relatives in agricultural pursuits. And to  this day tho women agriculturists of India  enjoy greater freedom than their sex in  urban centers. Altogether in the ancient  times the position of women in India was  superior to that of her sex in probably any  other part of the world, even in learned  Greeco or Rome.  lhe Left Foot First.  One odd thing in town which everybody  ought to know, hut does not, because every  one hurries so hero, is that the majority of  women board elevated and surface cars  with the left foot first.  Those who put the right foot foremost  8n such occapious generally make a movement to step on the cars with the left foot  first.  Men invariably place the right foot first  on the cars. So do women who wear  knickerbockers and low shoes.  Conductors, brakemen and motormen  have all noticed it, and they wonder why  it is that women, as a rule, approach them  left foot foremost.���������New York Letter.  BEST  FOOD  FOR CHILDREN.  They Should   Be   Given That Which Will  ,   Build Muscle,  Brain and Nerve.'  "If mothers only knew how to prepare  their children for the hardships of life,'  these conditions might be easily avoided,"  writes Mrs. S. T. Rorer of "Tho Best Diet  For Bloodless Girls," in The Ladies'Home  Jourcal. "At a very early ago they should  bo taught to eat food to build muscle,  brain and nerve and to give force and heat  ���������not simply to satisfy appetite, a scientific rather than a haphazard operation.  It is not necessary, however, to hold long  conversations with the child as to what  she should and should not eat. As a rule,  the first dish of oatmeal tlie mother gives  to,her first child'is .simply covered with  sugar. In a little while the health gives  out, and the child has indigestion.  ."Then, too, the child thus trained from  infancy feels that fat is objectionable, and  at the ago of 15 or 16, when an anaemic  condition comes over hor, fat, the ono necessary article to her salvation, is tho most  difficult to,take, and' it is frequently necessary to resort to oil baths or oil inunctions. You will no, doubt call to mind  that cod liver oil is tho firsf'thing added  to the ordinary dietary. .Butter and cream  may be used in as large quantities as the  patient can conveniently digest.  ,  "All fried foods must be strictly avoided. Potatoes may, be eaten twico a' week  and should always be baked. Boiled rice  may be' taken onco a day, but all bulk  foods, such as turnips, cabbage, carrots  and parsnips, should bo avoided. I fully  believe that special feeding in any disease  will bring about a cure unattainable by  medicino alone. By special feeding for  different diseases I mean living on precisely such,"food as tho patient in that condition can thoroughly digest and assimilate,  or upon the best foods to repair tho diseased tissues, rejecting all others."  DECLINE OF  THE' DUSTER.  The Practical Disappearance of a Garment  That Was Once Familiar.  ' A traveler by rail cannot fail to notice  3 tho decline of the duster. And ono does  not need to be, as the man said, a [centenarian to observe this. In fact, only 30 or  40 years ago dusters wero commonly worn  by railroad travelers. They were coexistent with the carpet sack and the alligator  mouthed valise, both now more completely passed away than the duster itself and  almost as completely gone as the hair covered trunk. '  The duster was worn, of courso, to. protect the wearer(and his garments from the  dust. When the linen duster flourished,  locomotives burned wood, tracks were sand  ballasted and rails were light, cars were  not vestibuled ' or provided with dust  screens for the windows, and the time required to cover a given distance was far  greater than now. A duster was far more  needed "then than now, and it was likely  ���������to be a partof the equipment of the casual  as well as of the regular traveler. Indeed  it may be said that the casual traveler  would scarcely have thought that he had  made a trip by rail unless he had provided  himself with that indispensable part of every traveler's equipment. " ���������  , But the linen duster was not the only,,  one. There were dusters of alpaca and of  mohair and of other materials, some of  them black and somo gray���������big, flowing,  cpmfortablo dusters, which, if not beautiful, had at least tho grace that all things  made of good materials possess. You could  almost tell a man without, seeing his faco  by the duster that ho wore.���������New York  Sun.        ���������    ' ii'.    .  The Voices of Ballets.

which tho fame of Sir William rests.
Night after night, never missing an occasion when the sky is clear, sho is busy
m the observatory, photographing the
stars through a spectroscope, by which the
light coming from them can be analyzed.
From tho spectra as thus obtained on

chemical ingredients the body photograph-
od is made and whether it is advancing or
receding as regards this earth.
In addition to her devotion to her husband's profession this gifted Irish woman
has gained for herself a most accurate and
scientific knowledge of botany, and as Sir
William finds relaxation from his studies
in playing tho violin sho has not only acquired most exhaustive knowledge of the
instrument, but written' several volumes
on its creation and development, besides
translating and editing excellent lives of

Women With Too Much Tolerance.

while  earnestly lighting, ovil areinclined
to regard it very much as doctors regard
disease���that is,,as something which it ia
their'business  to euro, but which springs
from conditions for which  tho patient  is
irresponsible.    Numbers grow so "experienced" that they treat it as a thing which
must bo,  like typhoid,   and  whilo con-
corned to removo it have ceased to feel at
evil either horror or disgust.    And a few,
often  very able  intellectually, positively
doubt thoir own conclusions and think or
occasionally say that "she is acting on her
views, which I think horrible, but which
aro  her views  nevertheless"���that  is  to
say�� tiiey think  evil  much  less when  it
springs from an evil opinion than when it
ipringa from an evil desire and forget that
in eight cases out of ten the desire produced the opinion.   ,-'

one would treat earthquakes or floods" or

They 'aro facts to them, not acts. The odd
thing is that such women never draw the
logical deduction���namely, that their own
exertions and teachings and self sacrifices are in that case all useless, for the
laws will operate whatever they may do
and are of course stronger than ' they.
They rarely, however, feel that form of despair, though we have known women who
repented'of their own toil as labor necessarily wasted and abandoned beneficial labor as by some decision of some occult
will, always infructuous. _ The excessive,
tolerance 'of-such- good" women 'is-often
mistaken by themselves for Christian
charity,'but its effect when pushed too far

r Take Care of the Feet.
Edward   Hitchcock   says  of   the_,foot:
"Probably no organ of the.body has been
more, abused  by the fashion  of  its dress
than has the foot. From time immemorial
and  by almost tho entire human  race it
has been squeezed into an unyielding case
of hard leather, never so large as tho foot
itself  when  resting on  the ground and
with  a  high appendage called the heel,
whence  have come corns, bunions, et  id
genus onino of accessories of civilization."
If, in  spite of  the truth of the above
statement, the foot still  renders us excellent service, what might it not doif from
the first it had received humane treatment?
Even  now without flying  in  the face of
fashion as regards tho style of shoos and
slippers we may do much  to mitigate the
tortures of this very necessary adjunct to
the human anatomy.
Nearly every one despises his feet, probably because they aro undoniably ugly.
But may it  not be  true that  they would
not  be  so  ugly were  they not  despised?
That tho foot of a littlo child is a thing of

earo as do his  chubby hands.    Tho  daily
washing, nail cleaning and powdering are
never omitted.    Then as babyhood passes
and work is demanded of  theso  hitherto
petted darlings they gradually are neglected  until, by the time  their owner is.10

I selected a corner piece^of flowers, which
J copied andworked  in'all the corners of
this,burlap rug.    I worked across  four
. threads, so as  to make  my flowers  more
showy.    The flowers ' "and  loaves were in
thoir natural colors. In the center I worked a long, narrow cluster of flowers.     For
fringe at the ends I knotted in strands of
burlap' and wool.    K 7 rug" isvery pretty
and does not look"at alias if it wero homemade.    I  had a very nice - rug  that was
mostly brown and  cream, but  the fringe
had  become  badly worn, so I raveled  a
burlap sack, crocheted a  narrow heading
and knotted strands of tho ravelings into
the  heading.    Each  strand  was  divided
and  knotted again  after tho manner of
towel fringe, and it made tho rug as nice
as new."���Housekeeper.
Queer Reckoning.     '    '
Indian street peddlers throughout
Mexico sell bananas for 12 "cents a
doze���, but wheu offered 24 cents on
payment for two dozen bananas tho
peddlers refused it and demanded 25
#3nts. The course of reasoning is that
lreal is 12 cents; 2 reals, 25 cents;
8 reals make a dollar. So the traveler must pay a real for one dozen bananas, but 25 cents for two dozen, and'
no amount of argument will convince"
the peddler that thi* io .-.of: right.'

Hints on Child Training1,.
Children are often taught lessons from
book's before they are  properly taught to
walk and long  before  they are  properly
taught to play.    Play is held out to them
not as   a   natural   thing,   as  something
which the  parent should feel  it a duty to
encourage, but  as  a reward for so much
work done, and as a rest from work done, as
though play wore not itsolf a form of work
���a form of work which a child li kes, whilo
ho dislikes another foz'm becauso it is unfitted to his powers.   For children under 7
years of age all teaching should be through
play.   Through play letters and languages
can.be taught, animal life can bo clas.sificd
and tho surface of tho earth  made clear,
and history can be told as a story.    Under
such a system tho child grows into knowledge, learns well, eats, sleeps  and  plays
well and acquires the habit of happiness.

The breaking of glass globes Is very frequent, as all housekeepers know. Their

How i3 it therefore,  that these heathen were allowed to be  thus employed ? Our new Inspector of  Mines might be able to give a reply tu  this query.
