Here's one reason: More lhan a year ago  Indian Philip, who owns a reservation home a  mile from Enderby on thc road lo Mabel lake, and encourage and educate lhc poor devils who  This is only one example. Hundreds of a  similar nature might bc cilcd. There is, indeed,  good reason for thc Indians refusing to have anything lo do with lhc while man. And we fear it  will ever bc so unlif lhc Government places a  resident Indian agent on every reserve lo direct  was promised water service from the Enderby  main wherc it passes his door, provided Philip  would give a right-of-way- for a wagon road  through bis place. He was also promised wire  for a fence to enclose his place, and he claims a  definite agreement was entered into with liim by  which he was to furnish the fence posts at 8c  apiece and dig the post holes at 15c a hole, for  cannol possibly gel a square deal under thc present haphazard system, which leads lo nowhere  and is always on lhc way.  Premier Bowser said the other day, speaking  on the question of the proposed Saturday half-  holiday legislation, that lhe Act would apply to  only Vancouver, Victoria and New Westminster,  the fence to be creeled along lhc roadway.   Thc | He 'gave as a reason for lhc Act not applying to  road was built-forthwith and has long been in  lhc interior towns lhal there were so few clerks  use. The water service was to be given him in a  lew weeks'-time, and the fence wire was lo  come along as soon as thc fence posts were on  the ground and lhe post holes dug. That was a  year ago, and more. Today'Philip has neither  thc water service promised, nor the fence wire'  The Indian carried out his part of thc agreement  months ago. The while man look possession of  the roadway through his place a year ago and  more. But Philip has. not received a cent* of  cash for thc fence posts along lhe roadway nor  for lhc digging of thc poslholes.    Nor lias hc  employed in lhc small towns lhe law was not  necessary there. Premier Bowser lakes a very  narrow view of whal a half-holiday law should  be, il seems to us. If il is lo be a Provincial  alfair why nol make il a Provincial affair? If it  is a law for the three eitieson the coast, why nol  empower those three cities to make Iheir own  half-holiday law? We did not think Premier  Bowser would ever father such a make-shift,  such a half-measure. II looks like vole bait. We  looked for something bigger and broader from  Premier Bowser.  ���������������������������������������������  .V-,  \.nd' through it all,- there VyV; YY^'SI  inecr \fcllowship" that:*all .;"'V'"**f,'V'-.^'l  enjov talking ahout and --yffiiwl&M  _L2Z__    Y  .YY-YY7MM  )yANT.TOBUY STOCK :RANCHE^S^Y^^ji  ~*c<-   "  ' *"* ' **   -        ''        **��������������������������� *���������������������������   *"     "j"*   "*** -'*   r" "* sYS    j* ~7,$''-,\ r~ ^T"*~f ������������������*;F  ���������������������������'.

Unsound or  malformed mares are just as bad as unsound stallions. It is easier, to raise a good animal than a  poor one.

THURSDAY, MAY 25, 1916  PRODUCE TO FULL CAPACITY  Is the farmer justified in believing that thc  firm tone of the horse market and the present  high prices for live slock rest upon a secure  foundation? May hc look forward with any confidence to the next season's or next year's market? Should hc prepare, as against an advertised  shortage and high prices for all classes of farm  animats, by breeding a larger number of marcs  or of cows, sheep, hogs and poultry? These art  questions which every farmer is asking himself,  and would like information upon. We arc confident lhal the farmer has never been in a more secure position than the present, as regards lhc extension of his breeding operations, bul, lo enable  him lo form more easily his own conclusions, lhe  following facts arc submitted:  Since lhc outbreak of the war, thc British remount commission has purchased in Canada 15,-  000 horses; 8.000 have been bought by French  contractors and 25,000 by lhc Canadian Department of Mililia. The Department of Militia is  now engaged in buying an additional thousand  head. The Brilish remount commission has purchased over 700 since March and is buying daily  in Montreal. French contractors are anxious to  ob I a i n-s u j) p 1 i es_a n cLa rc_ar_:a.i i gi u glo.buy .all.thai  are available bolh in lhe East and in thc West.  11 i.s understood lhat, as a result of the purchases  already made, army buyers are finding it increasingly dillicull, bolh in the United Stales and  in Cadada, lo readily secure lhc number of  horses which they require, particularly of thc  type suitable-for heavy cavalry or heavy artillery.  "in addition to lhe purchases; for army account,  commercial activity from two distinct quarters  litis exeVlcdVr very "evideiif Vnlluence upoir the  Canadian horse market during lhe past three or  four months. Since the beginning of lhe year,  6,000 horses reached lhe Winnipeg slock yards  from ftaslcrn Canada and 5,917 were shipped  from lhe same yards westward, mostly to Saskatchewan. During lhe months of January,  February and March, 1.805 horses were exported  lo lhe Uniled Stales. A few hundred more went  forward lo lhe same market in April. The horses  exported were gooel farm chunks weighing from  1300 lo 1500 lbs. As high as $500 a pair was paid  for animals possessing extra (|iialily and conformation. This new movemenl in lhc horse  market is having its effect upon prices all over  Canada.  Buyers report lhal thc better classes of drafters  and farm chunks are gelling scarce and hard to  buy. The same holds true of good big roadsters  and saddlers. The noticeable .scarcity ol" good  horses of these descriptions illustrates the fact  lhat demand has already overtaken supply and  makes il very evident lhal all Ihe really good  sound mares in lhe country should be bred lhis  year. II cannol be too strongly emphasized,  however, lhal they should be mated only with  strictly high-class sires. The number of horses  rejected by army buyers clearly indicates lhal  lhere is noplace for lhe unsound horse or for lhe  misfit. Such animals have been, are now and al-1  wavs will be a drug on the market.   Breed to the J  In laking over lhc Hedley Gazelle lasl week  our old friend, Jim Grier, says: "In politics, the  paper will bc independent. We arc not under anv  obligations lb lhe politicians, neither are thc politicians under any obligations lo us. If an aspirant  for political honors wishes to advertise his wares  hc can purchase space in thc columns of llie  Hedley Gazette al thc regular advertising rate of  10c per line, if hc writes the dope. Wc have been  writing political dope for a quarter of a century,  for nothing, and have 'sworn off.' " With this  slalemenl of fact and policy, the new Gazelle  editor closes with this eloquent peroration from  Kern an ���������������������������, who, hc says, was a newspaper writer  and died in the poorhouse:  Had I known the world as I know it now  In my hoy hood, I half believe lhat I  Would have sworn ine a stern, fierce, terrible vow  Down unto my death to live a lie:  To promise, yel never perform: lo pose  As a friend, while betraying all friendships.here;  To .prate religion, while under the rose  I struck through ils quivering breast ix spear.  For I often think, had I lived this lie,  And lived it like many a maii I sec,  That wealth or power or honor high  As it came to them would have come to me.  Nor would I have fell as I feel today,  When l.iixnd how fickle is friendship here;  For, ah!   had I been bul as false as they,  1 could answer a-back wilh a sneer for a sneer.  Fool, fool that I was ! In my trustful youth  1 thought this world was a world sublime  That was struggling ever in search of truth,  And where Truth would triumph in time���������������������������in time.  But far between, and tho' few Ihey bc, ,  Are good, grand souls in this world of shame,  A4id lhe love and the lillics they send to me  Are more lhan fortune and more than fame.  And when I remember these royal men  I rise renewed in my sense and soul,  And take up the trials of life again,  And again press on to a golden goal.  In Jas. W. Grier the Hedley Gazette has a publisher and printer who will make good. We have  worked with Jim, and "chawed" and "lit" with  Jim, and know he's made of the right stuff.  Whal would happen over in England if there  _v.a s^as_j_micljLJ_iij__j cqn-  nection with the movemenl of iroops in training  as has been going on in connection wilh lhe  establishment of the summer camp at Vernon.  Very much of this sort of thing and lhc people  of all communities would begin lo pray for lhc  men lo be shifted to the front where they coulej  do the mosl gooel���������������������������and no doubt this prayer has  been on thc lips of the men themselves for many  moons.  TO CAN RHUBARB  A simple way in which to preserve rhubarb is to cut the tender  stems into half-inch lengths without peeling. Pack them in cans.  Then pour in cold water till lhe can  overflows. Seal it tightly and treat  it the same way as any other canned fruit. This, is excellent for pies  or sauce in the winter time.  Mysterious Long Green Fluid  Dr. Louis Enricht, of New York,  recently discovered a green iluid  which when mixed with ordinary  water will produce a substitute for  gasoline, at a cost of a cent and a  half per gallon. His patent was  bought a few days ago by the Maxim Munitions Corporation for $2,-  000,000.  A girl who is chummy with her  molhcr can manage to get along  pretty well without a chaperon.

Last year on April 30th it  was estimated lhat 03 per cent of lhe planting  was completed as against 27 per cent this year.  Of spring wheal lhis year 1.8 per cent of lhc estimated acreage was sown in Quebec, 4.3 per cent  in Ontario, and from 26 lo 80 per cenl'in lhc middle west, being 26 per "cenl in Manitoba, 36 per  cent "in Saskatchewan and 80 per cent in Alberla.  In 1915 nol more than 8 per cent ol' life acreage  under wheal remained to be sown after May 1st.  The quantities of-oals and barley sown at this  date are also relatively small.  It is, perhaps, as well to remember lhat the  train lhat makes no noise, raises no dust, kills no  slock, and disturbs nobody, will never draw any  freight or carry any passengers, or get anywhere.

But il is unwise lo  count upon this surmise. Wc have heard it so  often, together with so many olher things pointing lo whal was said to bc German exhaustion  ���������������������������very little if any of which has come Irue���������������������������lhat  it would bc lhc essence of folly lo anticipate any  possible victory for England and her allies wilhin  lhc next few years. This is lhc opinion of mili-  lary men who have kept in close louch with the  various shifts which have taken place in lhc war's  progress from lhc beginning. II is quite natural  lhal Germany should bc ready lo make peace  now. They have Belgium, northern France,  Serbia, Poland and Russian Bailie Provinces.  They have losl a small part of Alsace to thc  French and a small part of Trcnlino to Italy, in  addition to nearly all colonial possessions. It is  useless to deny that they arc in position to enter  a peace conference at this lime with the strongest  hand. It is this fact which has set the British  mind strongly against peace at lhc present time,  or in thc near future.  J. L. Garvin, in thc Royal Colonial Institute  Journal, says that without a complete reversal of  present conditions there can bc no real victory for  thc Allies and no future security for any of them.  And. British statesmen tell us there cannot bc any  thought of peace until German militarism is destroyed. What does this mean? It means that  thc Allies mustrelakc Belgium, Northern France,  Serbia, Poland and the Baltic Provinces; it means  that lhc Central armies musl bc driven out of  Belgium and France, out of Serbia and. Poland,  out of Turkey and out of. Egypt. It means that  it will cost the Allies as.much in'men and money,  and time, to accomplish this as it has cost Germany and her allies to get in possession of Ihem.  Wc cannot hope to do more than they have done,  if, indeed, we can dp as much in so short a time.  What the Germans arc attempting at Verdun our  armies must expect to have to accomplish. We  cannot hope to. win any kind of a victory unless  we can retake the territory occupied by thc  enemy.' There can be no question that exhaustion is beginning, to count. But .it is apparently  counting as. much against the armies of the Allies  as. the armies of the enemy. The bringing of  Russian troops to France; is evidence of. this.  Ii* peace can come only wilh the breaking down  of the. German military ,system then peace is  years away. What it has taken them half a century to, perfect,we, with no system, to speak of,  cannot-! hope'to destroy iri .a few short months.  To break a' military system such as that means  that we must perfect a military system as strong  , Butvif peace isrto come without  or stronger   ,  bringing marked changes in Europe it may bc  nearer than'we have dared to think, and it does  not now seem possible that any marked changes I yield a profitable supply of mill  can be brought about unless a strength hereto- good feeding musl  lends lo the proper rotation of crops, and maintains and increases thc fertility of thc land, and  affords steady employment with returns which  are remunerative in accordance to the,amount  of brains and ability mixed with the business.  The farmer who milks cows has thc best,possible  assurance of a steady income. Thc one great advantage in dairy-farming is that it is not likely to  be overdone; there is always' a strong and increasing demand for dairy products of good  quality. At thc present time wc arc importing  inlo thc Province from ten million to twelve million pounds of butler annually. To produce this  large amount of buller within our own Province  would require an additional 40,000 cows, and we  must all agree that it will, bc some time before  our dairy herds increase to that extent, and it is  reasonably sale lo say lhat when that lime comes  the population will have increased to such an .extent that ^vc will be able to produce milk and butter as cheaply as can be done anywhere.  "There are necessarily many problems that  need solving, which lhc individual dairyman  must work out for himself lo bring lhe highest  degree of success, particularly/if hc is a beginner.  Chief amongst these is thc question of producing  more suitable and better, as well as cheaper,  j'eeds. We arc fast getting lo a place where the  land cannol bc farmed in thc old-fashioned way.  We cannot meet compclilion and remain in the  old'-rut. Wc arc blessed with condilions of soil  and. climate that enable us to produce a greal  variety of crops, of which alfalfa, clover, corn,  peas and oats, mangels and field carrots arc thc  most suitable for profitable milk production:-  "As pastures begin to dry up during the latter  part of the summer, the matter of feeding some  supplementary food is of thc utmost importance,  if profitable returns arc expected. Thc fact must  never be lost sight of that so much food is necessary to sustain the dairy animal, and that the  profits come from lhc food lhal is fed over .'and  above lhis amount. Cows running.on. bare pastures arc obliged to use up too much energy in  searching for their food. A little forethought by  way of providing green fodder -will-be1 found to  come in well at this time, y For tthis purpose tlie  economical' dairyman will provide a succession  of green crops, such as fall.rye and vctches,-;grceri  clover,, alfalfa, peas and oats, and green, corn.  While pastures arc good cows may'give satisfac-j  tory returns, butr taking it one year with another,  there is only a short period each year when.pasture may.be relied upon entirely lo furnish food  enough. -   .  "Good feeding must be continuous; the cow  has no creative function, and musl lake in at thc  mouth till thai she sends oil I through lhc,.udder.

There are said to bc more  than 3,000 wives of ollicers and men of the Canadian forces now in the Uniled Kingdom, and it  is understood this number is to be increased  during the next two or three months at the rale  of {j thousand a week. "It is far better," said one  agent-general, "for the wives lo remain in Canada with friends than to come here on an oil  chance, of seeing their husbands and then spending several months among strangers."  in winter. The best advice that can be given lo  thc average dairyman is: Resolve to feed a little  better, provide more suitable and better crops,  have an abundance of nutritious and succulent  food for the cow twelve months in the year, study  each cow individually, and feed her accordingly,  -an<l-make-hei-GomforlablG=antUGontGntc*;d.-=J-hfen,-  if she is lhe -right kind of cow, she will return n  handsome profit."  \    Enlist today!

FULTON HARDWARE CO., Ltd  We  Great Opportunity for Farmers of  this Province in Raising Beef Cattle  Lasl   week  Mr.  Geo.  R.  Sharpe, j lish Columbia, (3,130.   -_  our pioneer butcher, brought  in a j decreases   lhere   has   lo  the  carload of beef cattle from  province of Alberla. He would  have purchased beef cattle here if  Ihey were available. And he  would have paid a good price,  lie paid $75 for a beef heifer  bought of a nearby dairyman only  a few days ago.  "'Big filling oil' in Reef Callle" is  ii  significant   heading on  page  108  of The Agricullural  War Rook for  l!)J(i.   On page 01 there is this paragraph   of  equal   significance:   "It  is   in   Ihe   interests  of  the  Empire  lhal everything possible should  hc  done   lo   foster   the   Canadian   live  sock    industry.      In    Canada,    the  number of entile is about (5,000,000  besides    2,000,000    sheep���������������������������a   total  which, having regard to the population of Ihe Dominion, does nol at  present, leave a very large margin  for export.    "Willi  the  probability  of preferential trade in food wilhin the Empire there are great possibilities in  Ihe expansion  of Canadian live stock production."  -   There    was    once    an    English  bishop who, heing called upon to  preach a sermon in aid of an orphan   asylum   for  boys   and   girls,  pointed lo the children arranged in  full sight of lhe congregation, and,  saying   "They're  pulpit.    The  quotation  of  lhe two  foregoing     paragraphs    should    in  like manner almost bo sutlicient to  indicate   to   Canadians   the  opportunity   and    duty    that   lie   before  them.   There is, however, so much  mailer    of    similar    import,    and  pointing in   the same  direction  in  Ihe   book,   lhat   it   is   well   worth  while lo  look  further into it.    As  to the falling off, the statistics show  lhat   lhc   decrease   of   beef   cattle  during  the  ycars   extending   from  1010  to  101  7,'I38 fewer than  wards  of  23   per  Against these  bc reckoned an increase of 3,400 in  Prince Edward Island, 25,081 in  Quebec, and 43,272 in Saskatchewan. It will be noticed that the  decline was in those provinces  nearest to the United Slates and  wherc packers arc most in evidence.  Two morals arc to be gathered  from lhe foregoing figures considered in conjunction with exist,  ing conditions. One is lhat we  must produce more, and the other,  that we must eat less beef, that is  if wc have any desire to lake rank  as overseas exporters of live stock  or live stock products of any importance. To accomplish the one  farmers will need to pay additional  attention lo their breeding cows,  and to prize them lo a greater extent lhan ollicial returns would indicate they have been doing, in  connection with the other, it will  be necessary for the people to cultivate and eat more field and garden produce, as well as lo be more  thrifty in their treatment of scraps  and sceminly waste pieces, such as  bones, skin and- fat. They will  need, so the war book suggests, lo  produce ail they can: to buy as  little as possible; lo replace meat  there," left the; by. milk, cheese,. peas, ,beans and  lentils; to use more vegetables and  eat more, fruit.  EGGS TO BE MARKED  For the past year or two' the  poultrymen of the Province have  been urging upon the Government  the necessity of a law that would  afford some protection to the poultry industry. The have advocated  an eggs mark act, compelling the  marking of foreign eggs, ancl eggs  totalled 002,002, or j that have been preserved or held in  a million, or up-j cold storage. This measure is now  cent.

These words tell the whole  story. No man ever built, a nice  house on his lot or. his farm but  that he added to the. value of his  neighbor's property. When a man  keeps his own lawn in good condition and his back yard looking  neat, he is making progress himself  and he is also making money for  his. neighbor across the way,  wheiher his neighbor's chickens  bother him or not. No man ever  invents a practical machine or device but hc benefits the world at  large, and adds *=ot only dollars to  the world's wealth, but more intelligence and a higher civilization.  The same is true of a good book, a  Magazine or an editorial.  Many old-timers throughout the  Okanagan will learn with regret of  the death, at his home in Kelowna,  of Mr. Joe Christian.
