ment or the incidence of taxation ex
cept to the degree and of the nature
recommended ; nevertheless, the Com-
__missionersJ.clieve_that_the reductions
advise will prove of material benefit
to the people of the Province.
"A division of the revenue into five
separate heads and examination of
the amounts derivable from each,
show that the total abolition of the
taxes on property and persons and
raising of the revenue solely from an
increased. tax on natural resources,
which, even if it were held desirable
for other reasons, involve a 50 per
cent, increase in the rate of taxation
of such resources, i. e. timber, coal
and minerals."
Land tax revenue for 1910-11 is
shown at $316,130.83, and the report
sets out general considerations why
improvements on lands should not
be taxed, at the same time clearly
defining the meaning of such improvements. Real property taxes revenue
for 1910-11 totalled $352,372.44, at *
evidence taken by the Commission
of 1 per cent, on assessed values. The
showed that the rate of taxation is
not generally regarded as burdensome, but certain representations
were made as to assessment inequalities and complaints as to thc taxa'
tion of improvements. . The Commissioners in dealing particularly
with real property, recommend:
1. A periodical reassessment of
property according to its actual defined value;
2. The abolition of taxation on
improvements;
3. Legislation enforcing registration of real estate on affidavits set-
kert value of   copper.

Virtual reorganization of the Provincial system of timber lands administration   and    the   conservation

of womanly   kindness,    and a deeper
understanding.       To   come into personal touch   with    such a character,

before the legislature, this law being
based largely upon the expert investigation and very full and scientific report of the Forestry Commission of
1910. The Forest Act provides for
the creation of a Department or
Bureau of Forestry, with a chief forester and subordinate officials who
will exercise wide authority in all
forest matters. When any portion
of the reserved timber lands of British Columbia shall be thrown open in
future, licenses will be procurable
under a radically different system
from that obtaining in the past, the
new Act providing for the adoption
of the Ontario plan of license purchase by tender: Bids will be invited and the tenderer offering the
largest cash bonus, in addition to
royalty on such timber as may be
cut, is to be granted the license, or
alternatively, -the minister may accept the highest lump sum for the
whole limit. This does not affect
present licenses, the law,^ being in no

It is therefore  necessary, in fact imperative, that the  farmer should get every cent possible  out of his low grade grain, and there is  only one wuy to do this. Ship it forward and get a reliable commission  merchant to handlo it for you. Get  one whose experience guarantees that  he knows his businoss. This is important.

A little, slight, childlike woman  swung tiie door open for me an 1 sprang  from the auto and da&hed up the steps  into the Calgary omce of Dominion  Landp. Maybe sho was twenty-three  years old���������������������������maybe less. As I bowed to  thank her, 1 noticed that she was poorly  dressed, Aud it was cold, intensely  cold. A biting February wind swept  down from the boulder_.jroken onows of  the distant KockieF, whirling up������������������grcat  clouds of feathery flakes, and wailing a  paean of joy and victory in the swaying, struggling telegraph wires. "  Inside, I turned, curious, and looked  at her through the glass of the door.  Over.an undercoat of black cloth witlra  fur collar she had on a man's long-haired bcais'kin coat, from which the buttons or frogs had been torn, and their  places taken by short pieces of brown  string tied in bows. Over her head and  ears was pulled-a white, wollen toque,  while her eyes ehone dully through a  uavy-blue veil, gathered into a knot  at the nape of her neck. One hand, in  a man's black saeepskin gauntlet,-never  left the door-latch; the othcr.wss*thrust  deep into the' enormous cavity of the  black bearskin coat pocket.    .  >- "Well,-" ]���������������������������said to myself, as I went  up the siaire to the office, "I've'often  heard of these waiting homestead pre-  cmption'ietSj but I've ne^er actually  seen them' before."

"I feel like a two-year-old, a  fighting cock, or a landowner," at  which they both laughod heartily.  Bill was short and stout, with'yellow-  red hair, a heavy crop of freckles, and  n thin, pleasant face. He wore a black  hatchet-shaped cap, which intensified it.  One of his front teeth was filled with  gold, and when he smilled a ray from  the sun jumped back from it and stabbed me iri-tlio-cvo  his place at the head of the line, the  iow bogan. Everybody in' the street  pitched in, and it was a miracle how  the intruder escaped with life nnd limb.  In lho midst of the fight the land oflicer  suddenly appeared in the doorway nnd.  standing on a chair, road the Riot Act,  which, in the form of regulations, p/o-  vents all such doings. It was as follows:���������������������������  "it is to be distinctly understood  that priority of right on the part of a  waiting applicant to enter for any parcel of land does not arise before the  opening,of the office on thc day upon  which such land becomes available for  entry.''  The land Hgent bellowed this regulation from his elevated perch, gesticulated violently with his arms, and disappeared backward through the doorway.  All hauds wero ordered off the 6teps,  and three members of the Royal Mounted Police took charge. Later in-the  dajyhowevcr, tne young-couple, fearing  to lose the advantage their eaily coming ^"had" in the beginning .gained for  them, returned and - quietly crept up  the steps once more, and took up their  position at the latch. The sternfaced  Eiders -of the Plains, "who evidently  sympathized with them, looked the other way and said nothing,, and once  more Bill and his wife had possession  of the door-latch. And there they hung  on, at the head .of-the rapidly increasing line, until seven 'o'clock the following morning,-'when the outer .loor  of the post-oflice was opened, and a wild  scramble for the stairs up to the land  office ensued. 'At this door the pantomime was enacted once moie, with Bill  as the hero holding firmly to,the irr.ni  knob "of the door. At nine o'cioek the  inner doer swung back and William  Faux, the first in line, grabbed the  pen. from the desk "near-by,r signed his  name at the point 'indicated by the  clerk, paid the regulation fee, and <"ie-  lightedly left the office, clutching.tightly in his hand the long-sought papcit.  giving to liim the prize homestead.--,  ��������������������������� -'.'Were we there -with the* goods,  Bill?'."' asked his-'wife as she fondly  grasped his arm at the; bottom of the  stain; "did .we' get,the';land?"i-And  she,peered.wistfully into.his face'.,- '  .".Wall,"I just"guess we did;"replied  Bill, delightedly.

In marketing it will pay to have your  potatoes clean and uniform, and with  the name of vaj-icty on the bag wjui  your own namo. Jt pays to advertise a  good variety an3 yourself toe. Watch  the market columns and thc market  comments on supply and demand, and  operate yonr crop accordingly. Keep  your small potatoes for the chickens,  as they arc more valuable there than  on the markot.  The successful marketing ef the potato depends very little on the close  proximity of a centre large enough to  take your supply. Unions yo������������������ir local  freight rates arc particularly high, a  shipment of a decent Fixed quality for  200 to 300 miles is no obstacle in growing potatoes. Thc principal requisite  for those having Ja,-g������������������ quantities is to  ship in cailond lots ef 500 to (500  bushels. With good management a  large crop of potatoeB should be profitable at 40 fents per bushel.

At seven o'clock each morning his wife  would relieve him, whon he breakfasted  at a snail hotel near by, and slept until  mid-day. She would relieve him again  late in the afternoon for supper, and  .remain on tho stops with him until ten  or eleven o'clock, when she retired.  Towards the end of the week thoy  were joined in their vigil by other aspirants to the homestead, one of whom  watched them like a lynx, hoping that  for one brief second Faux would forget  and let go of the coveted door-handle.  Bill's wife was beside him and warned  him to be careful, but somehow, in a  rush ef people through the door, he  dropped the latch for a moment, and  hey, presto! some one else had it.

These machines will be found of -great  economic value, as potato digging is a  slow job and interferes with other-important fall work.

' Work from tue side of the row.  -as=it-will=save-the=deep=digging=whieh-  eanaot be avoided if the hills be straddled. When the potatoes are thrown  out it is best to let them lie until tho  earth dries on them-, a? it will faoilitate  the cleaning off. Do not dig aloug one  row at a time, but remove the crop  in patches, ns this will do away with  a lot of walking and will mean lets  work for.thc piekeis and loaders.

A pail is about the best article foi  gathering in, or in lieu of this a half  bushel measuro will be found handy.  Keep account of the yield as it goes  out of tho field, but don't weigh half  the soil ou your poj-.ato field with Uo  erop. Grading should ba done as you  gather, and will tftxvc a lot of trouble  later on. If, however, you are pushed for time, this oprration may be left  until lator. Tue little potatoes should  go to the hens and pigs.  There is nothing particularly difficult  in the care that should be given to  potatoes in storing. The main thing to  avoid is dampness, and this can be  avoided by sufficient drainage in the  store house and by having the potatoes  kept from contaet with the walls.  Never roll the potatoes down a chute  into store room. Potatoes will not  ���������������������������taud the cold as well as apples, and  must be kept at a slightly higher temperature, about 32 degrees Fahrenheit  is the best temperature. Potatoes freeze  at 30.2 degrees Fahrenheit. Warmth  favors sprouting, which is injurious  both to the keeping and table qualities  of the tuber. '  Potatoes will keep well on racks with  slatted bottoms away from all contact  with walls and floor, and should be  kept in tbe dark or, at least, in a very  moderate light.

Address, P. O. Box 8., Endeiby.  When the late City Council took up  thc work of handling the City's business, in January, 1911, they were  confronted hy a deficit of $1,800. To  offset this, they found rcvenue"assets  to the amount of $1,000. In the year  311st closed they paid off thc deficit,  carried on the business of the year,  ancl quit office with a surplus of  $1,109.G3.     That is business.  In the    year    just opening,  Mayor  Ruttan promises    even better things.  Assessor Kenny   has just about completed  his    assessment roll.   He will  send out his assessment notices within the ��������������������������� next    week.       We have been  privileged    to;  foreshadow   what his  assessment   notices    will    show.   * In  compliance with  the Municipal Statutes,  Assessor Kenny has raised the  assessed value of land up to thc recognized   actual  value.   Improvements  have not been added to.     As near as  can be ascertained,    taking the property assessment as a whole,' the new  assessment will be about 50 per cent,  higher than    the   old.   The property  values have   jumped from $290,000 to  $440,000.     Under   the old low valuation assessment, the rate of taxation  was 21 mills,  while under the actual  valuation   assessment   now to be inaugurated, the rate will be about 12  mills.     In most instances the 12 mill  rate ion the actual    value assessment  will 'be not more than the amount of  taxes previously paid on the old valuation,   but the   higher-value assessment will place the city in- an infinitely better* position in the eyes of home  seekers ancl others desiring city property.  ���������������������������    Thc 12 mill "rate will provide  for all the running-   expenses  of.the-  town,' and'.carry    the city's share of  j the local, improvement work done in  j the past year,  ' besides providing the  'sinking fund   for   the various debentures now issued.       It provides also  a comfortable, margin over and above  the estimated requirements.  INCORPORATION   ENDORSED     '  The '... public meeting called to hear  the committee report on the subject  of rural incorporation, last Saturday  in the City Hall, wisely endorsed the  movement, only three out of an attendance ,of 20 or 25 citizens voting  against the motion to incorporate. It  would appear as though the farmers  who at first strongly opposed the  proposition, have reconsidered the  question, and are now as strongly for  it as they were previously against it.  This is one of the best indications we  have received that thc farmers of Enderby district arc awakening to the  needs of the district and to recognize  the responsibility resting upon them.

The present site  and school building have become too  small to accommodate the increasing  number of pupils. Overcrowding has  long been complained of. To temporarily overcome the difficulty, the  Board will rent the old Methodist  church building for the accommodation of the primary department.  The purchase of a school site and  the erection of a new school house  has been under consideration some  time, but no step will be taken until  the new city council is in position to  attend to the business.

We" were taken   to task by a friend  the other day    for    having used  the  term "spoon    fed"   in our references  now and then in discussing the policy  of  some of    our-   farmers  who have  seen fit to    oppose   the movement to  incorporate    the    Bnderby-Mara  district  as. a    rural    municipality.   The  friend's   argument   was that the district was   entitled   to all it received  from the Provincial Government, and  it could not be   said, therefore, that  this was a spoon-fed district.   Either  this friend or the   editor is laboring  -und er-a=m i sta k en=4 d ea=as=t o=wb at>  constitutes a    "spoonfed"  individual  or community.       We    best can illustrate our meaning   in the expression  "spoonfed"   by   bringing it down to  the individual in the hiomc.   The children    are    "spoonfed"    between    the  bottle and the knife and fork.     They  are "spoonfed" until they are able to  ; feed  themselves.       Thcrc_ is no question as to what   each is entitled to.  The  "spoonfed"    child is entitled to  what it gets   from    the spoon���������������������������<_uite  as much as the elder children arc entitled to what they get with the aid  of knife and   fork.   But the  "spoon-  ,fed" child is thc weakling. It cannot  jfced  itself.       It  lacks ambition, and  . whines to   be    spoonfed    rather than  .take up thc   responsibility of feeding  ,'itself.     While all    thc other children  [arc eagerly   taking up life's burdens  | and fitting themselves for the battles  | of everyday, in the home and out of  jit,  the   "spoonfed"    pines    to be relieved  of the    responsibility of tackling the    things   worth   while.     The  lusty, healthy    boy or girl���������������������������the kind  , worth    while���������������������������break    away  from the  spoon as early as possible.   Only the  weakling prefers    to depend upon the  parent for its sustenance.  If we arc to be understood in our  use of thc term "spoon fed" in connection with the movement on foot,  the thought in relation to the children of the home need only be applied  to districts. ,-  You-can't always tell by the  looks of a pup how big a thought  he can think.���������������������������The Pensive Pup.

C, Jan. 22.���������������������������That  Attorney General Bowser meant  exactly what he,said a few days  ago intimating that a general reduction in the number of licensed  houses in the rural districts was  imminent is emphasized by protests coming in from all quarters,  from thos* who were licensees but  are such no longer.  The ministerial course is based wholly upon  the license inspectors'  reports,  the cancellations ordered and contemplated being for active violations of the law or for failure  on the part of the licensees in  unorganized districts to meet the  requirements named in the act  for licensed hotel premises ��������������������������� as in  the matter of dining room, guest  room and stabling accommodation  licensees living with their families  upon the premises, etc. It is also  reported that many road houses  have taken long chances with the  law in selling during prohibited  hours, in Belling to chaffeurs, to  minors and to interdicts, and also  in permitting   their   establishments to be used for improper  purposes.   That   certain    road  houses on   highways   radiating  from Victoria have been among  the offenders is matter of departmental knowledge, and instead of  initiating  prosecutions   penalty  will be imposed ^cancellation of  the. licenses. Nelson,  Rossland,  Phoenix, and a number of other  Interior towns have taken a hint  from the course that is being  pursued by the Department, and  cancelled licenses where the standard of hotel accommodation has  fallen short. Other towns will act  similarly in the public interest.  Of the well known road-houses in  the unorganized districts which  have already been cut off; the" license list are mentioned the Clinton Hotel and the Newmarket at  New Denver.: In-connection with |  the latter, _. action7was; taken 1 by:  Chief.Black7 of. Nelson,, on telegraphed instruction from Superintendent Campbell. The;|rierids  of the licensee, Henry Stege,7'are  utmost to obtain reconsideration  of the official action, alleging that  it must of been based upon incorrect and misleading reports, and  to make strong his hand, Mr Stege  has secured a petition signed- by  virtually all the active church  workers and temperance champions of New Denver attesting  his peculiar fitness to enjoy a  licensee's privileges.

Theio are othor considerations involv-  ad, however, tho partial digestion of tho  food in tbo mouth; the development of  the musclea of tho face, thus affecting  the expression; tho development of the  t������������������etb and jaw bones; the development  and  nutrition of tho  throat and nasal  passages.    Mastication is'accomplished  by the action of the teeth of the lower  jaw against those of the upper,   in tho  carnivorous or flosh-cating animals, the  movement of the Lowor jaw is limited to  ���������������������������p and  down motion -and  thc  food  is  ,crushed between tho very uneven surfaces  of  tho  upper and  lower  teeth:  while in the herbivorous or grass and  gaain-eating animal.'.,  the movement i3  almost   wholly  sideways,  grinding  the  food between, the comparatively smooth  surfaces of-the'leoth.    as man's diet  consists of a-large variety of foods, we  - find a modification of these two forms  iu  a  somewhat  uneven  uifrface of  tho  teeth and a .very f too movement of the  ' lower jaw, forward and backward, and  -from side to side.   When food has been  ���������������������������taken into the mouth, the tongue move*  il   back .between-'the spostenor  teeth,  .    where it is ground into small particles.  The movements of the tongue, lips_ and  cheek serve to retain.thc food in the  "   proper relation to the teeth until it is  sufficiently comminuted and mixed with  saliva, when it passes backward and is  swallowed. .-This  should   not   be   douc  until thc food is thoroughly masticated  and insalivated.  The   value   of   thorough   mastication  is 'threefold: '  (1)  Mechanical.���������������������������The .subdiciding of  .   tic   food  into   fine  pieces  is  of  great  .   value to subsequent digestion.

"Why do tha vast, majority of people  Mt niKSticate properly*. Thore aro several reasons, the moct frequent, powi-  ���������������������������ly, hoing "soft" or "mushy" food.  This ia moat noticoable in the case of  lihildron's diet. Where thc necessity of  mastication is lacking, the instinct l!or  it .gradually disappears and the child  a.<jquir������������������3 thc babit of bolting its food  and very often comes lo reject thc bard-  t*r for lho softer foods, it is very im-  eortaat for the proper development of  the jaw bones and of tho permanent  teeth that a child should be given food  which eannot be swallowed without  thorough masticatioa.  Another reason is some defect iD tho  roacticatory apparatus, and this is yory  common in thoso who have not learned  to masticate properly in early life. The  defocta way be irregularities in the arrangement of the teeth whoreby they  do sot uorne into proper relation, the  appor with the lower, thus largely di-  iftjiunnhing the area of the griuding  hut Pace, -or tbo teeth may be decayed  or looso and paiuful upon prcBiuie, or  some may be lost. *���������������������������  \vliat are tho evils resulting from improper mastication 1 Their name is le-  Tgion. Possibly tho most important is  the tendency to take too -much food.  If tho food -wore of a varietyfnccessita-  tiiig abundant masticating leas would be  taken, on account of the longer time  and the more labor requirod, but thorough mastication, even of so ii foods,  "rodnees tho amount needful, for the  mora perfectly the food is chewed, the  mora perfectly It is digested-and-.the  moro economically is it disposed of in  tlio system."    An  inevitable  result of  an excess of food or of food insufficiently   chewed   is   a   dorangement   of   the  digestive tract resulting in more or less  serious  indigestion   or   ia some   cases  evou  in  cancor of  tho stomach  or  in  appendicitis.    Again,  iu   those  who  do  not masticate piopcrly in early life tho  nasal pn>sagcs and tonsils fail to pro-  porly  dtwolop,  and   in plater  life'also,  unless   mastication   is   prolonged   these  parts  aro ,deprived  of  tho "stimuli.ting  oll'cct of iiicieasod flow of blood to the  parts, brousrht about by the action  of  masticating, and hence aro more liable  to  become diseased   both  in  the child  and  in  the adult.    There  is  no  doubt  whatever that lack of efficient mastication  predisposes   the  child   and   the  adult to rhinitis, tousilitis, adenoids and  other affections of the throat'aud nasal  passages.      "The   prevalence rof adenoids among moderns  must  be the result of the modern system of feeding  children and the defective mastication  which goes along with il."   A'sequence  of adenoids is "inouth breathing" on  account of the prostorior nasal passages  becoming blocked up.   So,  also, a  sequence of mouth  breathing is the pre  disposition    to    laryngitis,    broncnitis.  phthisis,   dental   caries,-irregularity  of  the teeth, lack of development of the  cranial and jaw bones.    Another result  of  lack  of  abundant  mastication  is  a  lack of development of the tongue, salivary glands and jaw bones. ' The' effect  to   the teeth  is very marked.    As  thp  circulation  in "the  teeth  and surrounding parts is  not stimulated,  tho teetn  in infants do not develop properly and  aftcr'developmont they are not properly  exercised and massaged, while the secretions of the mouth are apt to be scanty  aud unhealthy.. .Under these conditions,  i-hox teeth., and   surrounding   parts  are  more   liable  tb'-fbecomc   diseased.

There_'seeni"s to be some connection .between them and the activity on. the  sun's surface, 'manifest to usin the  form of sun-spots and'their.attenda.it  phenomena. J..Loisel, writing on the  subjoct in La Nature, tolls us that until  recent years attempts to fixe the photographic image, of auroars have almost  conTplctely failed by reason "of" their  very feeble and variable luminosity and  of "their mobility, "which is sometimes  extreme. Some good plates were taken  by Brendel in> Boseekop, Finland, in  1892, then by Westmann in Spitzber-  gen; and quite recently Stormer,-in a  =journey_of=exploratinu=to=Bossekop,=has  obtained 800 photographs, of whieh 40*0  are perfectly clear.    We read:  "Tho height of aurora's above the  earth may ,vary within wido limits.  Tho measurements taken by the Swedish expedition during tho winter of  189S1-1000 at Akureyri, Iceland, under  the direction of A. Paulson, have fur-  nis lied altitudes (250 miles) for relatively quiet arcs.- Stormer, by photographing tho aurora simultaneously from two  stations-a������������������d~"comparihg~ positTooiT~rTd^  tivoly to tho surrounding stars on both  plates, has found for cortais points  altitu'bs of f,0 to 1.10 miloM.  "The spectrum of the aurora was  first studied by Angstrom in 18Gt5.    .   .  our system. Ingenious hypotheses have  been put forward along- this line. But  although .the connection would appear  very probable, it is doubtless more com-'  plex than 'a simple relation of cause  and elfect. .The mechanism that joins  tho magnetic variations and the polar  auroras to those of the solar activity  itself (not to some of its manifestations,  such as spots;'faeulac, or protuberances,  as fias been 'attempted) has not yet  stood'out from an investigation of the  facts hitherto known, and remains  shrouded in mystery."  Some of the numerous'theories that,  havo been advanced are briefly summarized by -Mr. Loirel. Arrhenius supposes  that eruptions of ionized gas take place  from the sun and that condensation  takes, place.around the negative particles, which are then repelled from .the  sun and begin to emit eathodo rays  when thoy enter our atmosphere;' but  these do not become visible until they  reach air of - sufficient density, which  they do at the poles because ths^tor-  restrial lines of force conduct them  thither. Others, such as Deslaudroe  and . Bh-kcland, assert, that the sun's  atmosphere itself gives oft* cathodic  rays directly. Birkeland magnetized  a small steel sphere to represent the  earth" covered, it with7,a phosphorescent  chemical, and "placed it in "a beam of  cathode' rays." The rays, as they strike  the sphere,,.are so deviated "that thoy  form;two- phosphorescent,- polar bauds  representing the. zones"-of auroral frequency'.'-* f Still other'authorities believe  auroras.are due to_electric waves such  as arc employed in-wireless telegraphy.  firovcn)  hvrlrouplt ..

"       (Quick deals: Big Cash Payments.)  i  Immense Profits in Poultry Products  as the Result of Co-Operation  It is an interesting and instructive,  though    possibly   not a particularly  edifying fact,    that the poultry products of this country last year totalled only $25,000,000, as against $625,-  000,000 for the United States, in the  same period.       Such figures as these  offer food / for   thought.     Poultry is  very much    underdone in  Canada at  the present    time, and unless we are  agoing to   import    eggs   and poultry  Very heavily, our output in the next  five years must 'increase to ten times  what it is to-day.     Even now we are  importing eggs from the United States,   Russia    and    Germany.    Sifting  . these figures 'down   to their plainest  meaning-,'  we   are    shown    that   the  United   States    on    poultry  ' isr.'beating   us' out    in- the  about three to one per head  lation.  .   --This  $625,000,000    of    poultry  pro-  ��������������������������� ducts in the United States last year,  > -is.more "than the* products in a similar period of   all the farms and ranches of the whole Dominion of Canada,  including    the    live   stock,  field  - crops, and everything which was pro-  >������������������������������������������������������ duced on  the    farms of Canada last  year.  In 1902 Canada "exported ?J,733,242  worth of poultry pn'Dducts. Last  year these figures dropped to but  slightly over half a million. In "1904  the Dominion exported to Great Britain ten times the poultry and eggs  s that she docs today. There are two  reasons for this state of affairs. In  thc first place, the Canadian farmer  fails to realize the enormous profit-  making possibilities presented by the  egg market ; in the second place,  while he knows the producer's prices  are high at present, he is afraid that  a greater production would cause  cold storage houses and other midclle-  ,_men__to._cut_these_-nrices-down Thc.  and  eggs in   greater    quantities lest  the price be forced down.  It looks very much as if co-operation among, farmers and team work  in marketing were to be the ultimate  solution of the Canadian poultry  problem. The idea of the farmers  getting- together to d,o their marketing ancl taking for themselves the  profits that would otherwise go to  the cold storage houses, makes a  strong appeal to common sense.���������������������������  Successful Poultryman.  England's Insurance Law  In general terms the Insurance  Bill recently passed in the British  House requires that a man shall  pay eight cents, the employer six  cents and the state four cents. In  return the insured receives free  medical attendance by a doctor of  his own selection from a panel of  doctors, and free medicines, sick-  pay at the rate of $2.50 a week  the first three months, $1.25 for  the next three months and for  life in case of permanent invalidism. For women the payments  and benefits are lower and  include maternity benefits. It is  estimated that 9,200,000 men  and 3,900,000 women come within the compulsory class, and that  of the total annual fund of $118,-  000,000 the state will contribute  over $27,000,000.  In certain highly skilled trades  like that of ship-building a beginning is also made in insurance  against unemployment, except in  case of strikes, on further payments by the three parties.  National sanitariums are also to  be established for the treatment  of tuberculosis.  WHERE UNION MONEY GOES  The defense of the McNainaras,  recently tried at Los Angeles for dyna-  products jmiting the   Los-   Angeles .Times and  ratio of   other.buildings,   cost   approximately  of popu-| $200,000.     Thc   amount spent in the  I fruitless trial of Haywood-Moyerand  Petti bone',   some   years.-ago. for the  murder  of Governor    Stunehherg,   of  Idaho, footed up\?300,000.  Some conception of the disastrous  : effects of the recent" struggle -between  jthe operators and miners in this dis-  j trict and the enormous financial loss  i entailed may be- had from-the an-  Inouncement of the U.S. Consul here  I to the effect that the expprts of coal  from the Crow's Nest Pass-fields clur-  ;ing 1910, exceeded the exports for  i 1911 by $1,730,000.

The increase was largely in commerce  with the United States, the gain  being $61,590,676. With Great  Britain the increase was only $2,-  250,000; with Germany, a gain of  about $3,000,000, and with France  an increase of less than $2,000,-  000. The balance of trade in favor  of the United States was over  $180,000,000, the imports showing an increase of $51,000,000.  We are frequently told that the  ending of war by courts of arbitration, is too impracticable to  deserve", serious - consideration.  David Jayne Hill, former, am-  bassabor to.Germany, writes,1 in  his new book, "World Organization and the Modern State,"  "When it is considered that the  price of a single, battle-ship has  never yet been expended by all  the nations of the earth combined for the judicial organization of  peace, is it not atleast premature  to say that future, progress in  this direction is impossible?"  and hc is afraid  to produce poultry cover.���������������������������The Pensive Pup.
