Array Enderby, B. C, March 8, 1917  AND      WALKER'S       W E E K L Y  Vol. 10; No. 2;  Whole No. ,454  Agricultural Experts Make Live  Suggestions on Dairying and Stock  Agricullural experts from thc  Department at Victoria came in  to the Okanagan last Saturday and  addiessed , afternoon meetings at  Grindrod and Enderby. Both  meetings being held, at- the same  hour, the crowd attending each  was somewhat reduced, though at  both meetings the number of interested farmers showed -an increase  over similar meetings held in the  past.  The meeting at Grindrod was addressed by Dr. Knight, on live  stock' ailments;  Mr.  E.  Hogan  on  , the  treatment  of  soil   and  crops,  and  Mr.  Terry  on  poultry.    The  ' Enderby meeting was addressed by  Mr." Waincko on dairying, and Mr.  Hopkins, assistant live stock commissioner, on live stock. Mr. Hop-  skills was simply substituting for  Prof. J. A. McLean, who "was unable  - to be present. -  - Mr. Waincko is not a stranger to  an Enderby audience, nor is he a  stranger to the district. He knows  lhc great-possibilities of the district for the fuller development of  dairying, and his message to the  farmers here was' one of certain  encouragement and unshaken confidence. He said conditions here  show certain improvement; the  success of the creamery at "Armstrong, which makes a ready mar-  kef for the cream output of the district, and the steady demand for  the butter output, gives the dairyman, large and small, all they could  wish for'in this respect. The next  question, and a very important onc  to his mind, is that of "quality."  He said the dairymen of the Provinces to the east of us, Alberta  and Saskatchewan, are better organized, and  their creameries are  ~1 argerVancnongcT~cstabl i sliecl VV\T  a consequence they have learned  the great importance of properly  caring for and preserving the  cream. No buttermaker can make  first quality butler out of second or  third quality cream. And it is in  this respect that the creameries of  these Provinces musl outstrip us if  -we do  not watch  the  cream  and  bring it up  to first standard.  The points emphasized by Mr.  Waincko were, cleanliness���������������������������in thc  milking, in thc stabling, and in  lhc milkroom,���������������������������temperature at  which the cream should be kept  while wailing shipment to the  ���������������������������creamery,-and. thc feeding of the  milch cows. The importance of  Ihe first condition���������������������������cleanliness���������������������������is  he said, pretty well understood, but  not so carefully adhered fo. The  importance of thc second condition is possibly not as well understood as it should be. He impressed  this point upon his hearers, that all  cream should be cooled to 55 degrees and kept at this temperature  while awaiting shipment. If this  rule were adhered to, he said, there  would seldom be any complaint  heard about cream being in poor  condition, cveni if lit were ke'pt  three days or more. t He advocated  strongly crejaknery sjhip.'me'nts %o'  be made at least ever third day in  cold weather, and every other day  ���������������������������in the summer time.  He advised against making lhe  cream thin, as many do, in the vain  hope of getting more for their output from the creamery.   Hc said it  was a great mistake. Thin cream  goes sour more quickly than that  of the proper quality, the shipper  gets paid only for the butterfat it  contains, and loses the milk which  should have been skimmed off and  fed on the farm. Keep, the skim-  milk at home and feed it to the  calves,  the  pigs  or. the. chickens.  The matter of feeding was of the  greatest importance. Many cows  are kept on the farm which do not  pay simply because they are not  sufficiently fed. Mr. Waincko gave  it as his opinion that a great majority of the. dairy cows in B.C. are  underfed. "It takes a certain amount  of feed to keep the life iii the cow.  We must feed more than the maintenance ration otherwise we' shall  not get the hiilk supply. Properly  feed, "any Tco\y kept; in the dairy  herd"should average 20'pound of  milk a^day for 300 days in the year.  Cows that do not do" this are the  ones to weed .out. .   (<  The speaker strongly encouraged  the building-of-silos on< the- farm.  Questioned-by hay��������������������������� men as to'why  the silo{feed-was any better than  tlie same grasses made into hay,"he  said there was no difference in the  amount  of  nouishment   contained  in the feed, but, owing to its succulence the cows relished -the silo  feed and took more of it,- and it  was in a condition to give moisture,  to   the   animal   and ' not    require  moisture for its assimilation,'therefor it was a better milk .producer  than if the same were given, in the  form of hay.    He������������������said it was essential for the dairyman to have a  silo or two, if he was going to. get  what he should' out of his cows.  The  object  should  be  to  prepare  "ZZ^oTZ:^ News (votes of Enderby. arid District.  yet, hc was informed the farmers  were not supporting their own organization, and he asked the question pointedly: "Why is this,  men?" :  Mr. Hopkins spoke strongly on  the advisability of inaugurating  the live stock competitions for thc  boys and girls of thc district. He  refeired to the excellent results  obtained in oth-r localities ih the  Province where these competitions  are annuall held. Some of the best  farm stock he had inspected in the  Province was that, raised and  cared for by the boys and girls.  It requires but six boys or six girls  to get a competition going, and the  prizes are well worth, striving for,  besides, it creates an" interest iri,  this branch of Jhe farm which  otherwise 'Would   not  be   created.  The speaker urged closer .cooperative selling and buying by the  fanners,- and .produced figures ,to  show what other, .localities" have  don*������������������ and are doing.

Following Mr. Waincko, the secretary of the Farmers' Institute, Mr.  Little, urged all farmers to renew  their membership in thc Institute.  He told ofthe scveial competitions  which are to be held this season,  and urged members to actively cooperate in the season's operations.  Mr. Hopkins followed. He spoke  in general terms in the matter of  ailments to farm animals, and laid  down as a rule that two-thirds of  the ailments to animals on the  farm come from food troubles,  which could be avoided if farmers  would study more closely the relative food constituents of the feed  given. He referred to the feed situation as he found it in Enderby.  He had priced the feeds at the  stores and also at the Growers' Exchange, and found a difference of  from 5 to 20 per cent in favor of  the    Growers'   Association.

They leave  four boys, two of whom, with their  families, have been recognized as  valued citizens of Enderby district for several years.  A clergyman had taught an old  man in his parish to read, and  found him an apt pupil. When he  called al lhe cottage some time later  only the wife was at home.  "How's John?" he asked.  "Very well, thank you."  "I suppose he can read the. Bible  comfortably now?"  "Bible, sir? Bless you, he was  out of the Bible and into the sporting papers long ago."  i    ���������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������  Is there any ambition more noble  than to be a producer of the necessaries of life when the Empire is  calling for food!  out that gold makes a poor diet.

Gildemeester tells of suffering severe  loss the past season; first by .having 100 acres of crop almost totally  destroyed hy hail, and then having  the little that recovered frozen in  August. To cap lhis, he had to go  to the hospital al Calgary and undergo' an operation, all of which  left him worse off at the season's  close than when il opened.  Thos. Woods returned to Enderby the past week from a trip as  far south as Mexico. He brought  home wilh him a few one cent  Mexican stamps which he bought  at the postoffice, paying 2 l-2c each  for them.

The armies andThe munitions  factories of the Allies are trained and organized  for a supreme, united effort- The maintenance  of an adequate food supply is vital to the success  of this final mighty effort. In this crisis, lion.  Martin Burrell, minister'agriculture, feels it is a  privilege and duly of his Department fo lend aid  in all possible ways. In striving for maximum  production lhis year, many farmers will meet  wilh dillicullies demanding prompt solution.  The resources of the Department, have been put  a I lhe disposal of the farmers of lhc country,  and, lesl lhere should be any uncertainty as to  where lo address enquiries and requests on mailers lhal do nol seem to come exactly within the  scope of lhe ollicers of thc Experimental Farms  branch, il has been decided lo open an Information Bureau. Any leller addressed lo lhe Information Bureau, Department Agricullurc, Ottawa,  will be.handed lo lhc proper ollicer wilhoul delay  and will be replied lo promptly.  Mr. J. Ii. Griswald, director of Experimental  Farms, writing in lhc March "Seasonable Hinls,"  says: "The extraordinarily high prices lhat have  rewarded lhe efforts of the farmer in 1916 appear likely to continue, nol lo say improve, for  some lime yet. Thc fact thai prices arc high for  all, and not merely .for certain, agricullural products is of importance and advantage to us as  farmers generally, since there will not be that  rush lo change lines of effort lhat would almost  certainly have been lhc case had prices for any  particular product or class of products, ruled  abnormally high as compared wilh average  prices ol" certain olher products. We are for this  reason, each of us in a position to bend our every  effort toward greater production, each along his  own line, and no lime or energy is likely fo bc  wasted in trying lo learn details of operating  along some other, apparently more profitable,  line." The only exception lo this is probably thc  bright future there seems lobe for the live stock  man. Prices for grains and forage crops  likely lo go clown shortly after lhe war ceases,  bul prices" for live siock of most sorts are almost  certain lo remain high for many years. Thc beginning of lhc new crop year is lhe lime for lhe  grain farmer lo plan lo go into some line of live  stock breeding or feeding; il is also Lhe lime for  lhe breeder to plan for larger and better herds  and Hocks,of heller handled and.belter fed stock.  The generous feeding of our live stock of, all  kinds" al all limes is of thc greatest importance  imaginable and is thc only profitable way to  haiuilc Ihem. Such methods mean belter stock,  lower cost, of product and greater profits. -It  involves a little'more care in crop planning in  lhe spring and a lillle more liberalily in feeding  al all limes, but tlie results in increased products,  lower unit costs, and belter prices are more than  likely lo much more lhan make up i'or the extra  trouble and increased feed bill."

ButterWrapper  Parchment  The Dominion law against the selling of  butter without the words "Dairy Butter" or  "Creamery Butter"���������������������������as the case may be���������������������������printed  oil'lhe:butter-wrap,.is a blessing in disguise to the  average farmer. In the first place, if his Butter  wrappers are neatly printed with his name and  the brand of the butter on the label, the storekeeper can readily sell the butter at 5c a pound  more than hc can get for butter wrapped in paper  that is not printed, and the butler-maker gets the  advantage in 5c a pound more for bis butter from  the merchant.  It is the duty of every butter maker to comply with the law in this matter. Some butter  makers have only a cow or two, and make so little  butler that it does not appear to them that they  can afford to have their butter wraps printed.  They do not like the idea of having 500 or 1000  butter wraps on hand. To accommodate this  class of butter makers, The Press has printed up  a quantity of "Custom" Butter Wraps. They are  printed with the words "Fresh Dairy Butter" but  do not bear the name of the maker. However,  these wrappers fill the requirements of the law  governing this point, and can be bought in small  quantities at the rate of 65c a hundred in 100 or  50 lots. If you do not require butter wraps in  larger lots, take these wraps in lesser quantities.

H. Stevens, of the Government telephone service.  Three days were spent by these gentlemen going  into the question of a joint rate by which the  Government lines from outlying territory, were  to bc given connection with the Okanagan Telephone Company's system. As a result of that interview a basis was arrived at for an agreement  covering interchange of business between the  Government and the Okanagan Telephone Company lines. The proposed tariff agreed upon was  incorporated in the following agreement and submitted to the ^Government superintendent of telephones on June 5th, accompanied by,a letter in  which Manager Dobie said: "In order to.expedite  the matter I am submitting our arrangement in  agreement form as it has been discussed and approved between our two selves. I would ask that  you go over the agreement, and if quite satisfac-  . tory the writer will, submit to you the number, of  copies necessary..

THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY-  Thursday, March & 1917  AstaVM  YEAST  MAKES PERFECT BREAD  Sacrifices Must Be Made of Money  and Comforts to Give to the State  One of the most valuable of recent literary contributions to the  great cause is a booklet by Professor Stephen Leacock, entitled  "National Organization for War."  In this booklet, Dr. Leacock makes  an urgent call for national thrift  and national saving. He attacks in  vigorous style the evils of extravagance at this crisis in Canada's  history, and by trenchant phrase  ahd apt illustration disposes of  various common errors in regard to  individual spending of money during "war time. This pamphlet was  originally published by Dr. Lea-  himself, but the National Ser-  were so convinced of  its value in connection with their  t'hrift campaign that they have had  it republished and have undertaken  its distribution. Copies may be obtained by writing to the Secretary  of the National Service Board at  Ottawa, or by applying to the National Service Director, at Victoria-  " 'Business    as    usual,'    shouted  some  especial  idiot  at  the  outset  cock  V  vice Board  Girls sometimes flirt with homely  men* merely from force of habit.

Rise early,  work hard, and content yourself  wilh a bare living. . . . Every  cent of money than can be gathered  up by national thrift should be absorbed by national taxes and national loans'. Our present taxes  are, for war-time, ridiculously low  as far as all people of comfortable,  or even of decent, means are concerned. And they are made with  one eye on the supposed benefit  i to industry.

Over  above the taxes we need a succession of Government patriotic loans,  not  monev-lenders'  loans  at  mar-  LATEST WAR MOVEMENTS  Within the past week or ten days  two important movements have  been recorded in the war zone.  That of greatest importance is an  advance by the British on the  Somme front, where the enemy has  given up several miles of trenches,  and two villages have been evacuated. This retirement is spoken  of in the German reports as a  strategic movement, but ^military  men characterize it as a triumph  for General Haig's new tactics.  The dominating artillery of the  British is accomplishing now what  the costly frontal attacks of the  infantry accomplished before, and  the objects of mc British drive are  being achieved with a minimum  of loss.  The olher movement, which,  while having no direct bearing on  any of the real fighting fronts,-has,  nevertheless, great bearing on thc  whole, is the advance of a British  force beyond Kut-el-Amara, where  they are pressing' the Turk forces  hard, and have recaptured most of  the territory evacuated to the Turks  j last year at the fall of lhis now  famous point.  of the war," writes the professor. | ket and super-market rates, but  "The cry was like to ruin us.

They  have a curious bent of mind who  think that the task of a Prime  Minister in war time is one which  Sir Robert would hold from any  other reason than a sense of duty.  PRICE LIST OF SEEDS  For thc information of members  of the Farmers' Institute, Secretary  Chas. W. Little states that he will  have his spring price list of seeds  out the first week in March, all  orders to be in by thc 15th of the  month, and delivery to take place  about the 1st of April.  It will be impossible, he slates, tn  get fertilizer in this season by the  carload, and the best he can do is  to quote on the basis of the L.C.L.  rate.
