X  If your municipal assessment  notice0bears the name of thc  former owner of your property  instead of your own name, or if  you receive nolicc of assessment  of property which you no longer own, it is due to thc fact  that all propcrtv situate within  municipal limits is now rc-  ciuired by law to bc assessed in  the"name of the registered owner as shown on thc records of  the Land (Registry OlTice. To  straighten matters out, it is advisable to havc the change of  name or of ownership recorded  at Kamloops as soon as possible.  ..The first discovery of natural gas  In tbe Province of Alberta of which  -we have record, took place in- May,  1884, at Alderson, a station on the  main line of the C.P.H., 35 miles west  of Medicine Hat. The- railway con-  Btructon gang^ boring for. water,  struck a heavy pocket of sas at a  depth of 1,300 feet. A little later in  the same year, gas was also discovered at Cassils, 6 miles further west,  but while this well soon choked, that  at "Alderson continued to flow for  many years.  In 1890, Medicine Hat. then but a  small town, sank a well and found a  small supply at 700 feet; four years  later another attempt was made; and  history tells bow at tbe eleventh  bour, witb money.all spent���������������������������facing  bankruptcy���������������������������and despai-- and gloom  - ln the hearts of the mayor and city  council, a sensational flow was uncovered at * depth of twelve to thirteen hundred feet. Tt������������������e cheap, apparently, unlimited fuel supply, both  for commercial and domestic purposes, is largely accountable for that  city's growth ftn4 present prosperous  condition.  There are several known gas fields  |n tbe Province of Alberta, but as yet  only two bave been utilized for commercial purposes to any considerable  extent, namely, tbe Medicine Hat and  pow Island fields. Pow Islaud lies  on tbe railway line about half way  between . Mediicne Hat and "Lethbridge. 180 miles south-east of Calgary.  Jn 1912 tb* supply was piped into  the city of Calgary, as well as distributed en route to tbe city of Letb-  ..bridae.~Macleod ��������������������������� and other��������������������������� towns���������������������������  where it U used for botb domestic  and commercial purposes.  In tbe neighborhood of Pell lean  Rapids, Atb������������������baaca River, gas springs  were' known at least a century ago.  and travellers going up and down the  river. Into the Peace River Country  bave cooked tbeir meals there. Further well-known ga������������������ reserves are the  Foremost Field, south of Bow Island,  the Barnwell Field, midway between  Bow Island and Lethbridge and thc  Viking Field. 83 miles east of Edmonton, and were it not for the difficulty  of obtaining adequate piping, it is  probable that this supply would havc  been utilized two or three ycars ago  to furnish light, beat and power to  Alberta's capital.  Prospecting is now going on in the  Monarch Field. 40 miles southwest  of Calgary, and at the Okotoks Field.  27 miles south. Along the foot-  bills of the Rocky Mountains, in the  vicinity of the apex of a well definite anticline similar to that one in  the Okotoks Field, there are many  pronounced gas seepages, and tt  seems probable that as in the former  field, whicb had also a gas seepage.  It will be a commercial nroducer.  The Imperial Oil Co. has commenced prospecting for petroleum  along the last mentioned anticline.  and it is stated. Intends to carry vi;.  gorous prospecting from the International Boundary northwards to  Hudson Hope on the Peace River.  The production of both petrolenm  and natural gas seems favorable. This  comnanj also proposes further prospecting at other parts away from the  mountains, where it has selected  grounds for operation. In many  parts of the province in drilling for  Hockey weather has come at  , ti       .    ,       o,     , last, and the Valley teams are in  edy scattered  tnrough  the play|shape to make the most of it  to keep everybody nappy.    Thc wliilc it lasts.   Tuesday evening  Sunshine     Comedy,     "Hungry on   Enderbv ice  Salmon   Arm  a   1-iospilaJ"  is  better and the home team played a fast  and clean game before an enthusiastic audience as large as  the  grounds  would  hold.    On  housetops and shed roofs over-  x it" looking the ice, there gathered  Enderby's   chorus    of   rooters.  Thc ice was in first-class condition and the skating fast and  sometimes   furious.     But   the.  Same itself did nol develop into  anything more than shinny until   the  last  quarter,  when   the  visitors did do some expert stick  work.    The score stood 7-2 in  Salmon   Arm's  favor,  and   the  score told the story.    Enderby  boys developed great speed on  the ice, and lhere was some brilliant individual playing, but the  art of combination playing was  forgotten.    In  this  the visitors  showed up better.  'They nursed  tlie puck close around the Enderby goal most of the time.  Being the first game of the  season the homc team took the  drubbing from the visitors -with  good grace. Enderby has the  making of a strong hockey  team. Individually some of the  players are the strongest on the  ice. But "team work" is what  wins, and this should be their  slogan.  For Salmon Arm the following players were on the ice: D:  Miller, ~C. Bantwell, C. Lundy,  R. Howard, A. Farraw, B. Mackay and H. Cunning.  For JEnderby: D. Mowat, Sid  Green, V. Poison, Ed. Sparrow,  Jack McMahon, Rod Sparrow  and Wm. Blackburn.  E. .B. Dill umpired the. game.  .... On Friday,, Jan. _ 9th, Armstrong's" team will go to Vernon  lo play, and on Monday night,  Jan. 12th, Enderby will visit  Armstrong,  rlt is expected that the Advertiser cup \yill be up for competition, and each team is anxious  to win out.

At our  last conference with the Trustees in Vernon a scale of salaries  providing for a standard wage  for .- experienced teachers was  presented.  "We are pleased to state that  in a few, instances, Vernon and  Penticton in particular, an effort has been made to meet our  moderate requests. In the majority of school, districts, and  these are the ones in general"  where the greatest injustice prevails, no attempt has been made  to pay the teachers a decent  living wage.  "Our, association is formed  for the purpose of promoting  and improving the cause of education and to this end hopes for  the sympathetic co-operation of  every school board.

B.C..   by The Walker Press, at  per y������������������ar; $1.00 ������������������ix months.  H. M. WALKER  THURSDAY, JAN. 1, 1920  FARMERS IN A QUANDRY  o-  If anvbodv thinks the*'farmers-of B. C. arc going to have clear .sailing on the political sea, they  are greatlv mistaken. Ii' the- politician has his  way���������������������������and'hc usuallv docs���������������������������the farmer' will not  even be permitted toset sail on a. ship of his own.  He must sail polilicTniy under a political pilot of  the Government or hot at all.  Thisowas discovered at the annual meeting of  the Northern Okanagan Farmers' Institute held  in Enderbv last Saturday afternoon.    The meet-  ing was held to comply with the requirements of.  the Agricultural Act under which the Institute,  in common with ali other Inslilules of the Province, was organized, wliich requires that the annual meetihg'shall be held al a certain time for  the election of ollicers. etc. As all members of the  local Institute have joined the United Farmers of  B. C. and are disposed-to follow the political lead  of Ontario, they wanted to drop the Institute because of the paternal strings attached to it binding it  to  the Government.    They wanted  to be  free and independent���������������������������lo grow and develop���������������������������to  become big and strong���������������������������even lo help in lhc government of the country if need hc.  But when thcy met last Saturday they made a  discovery.   Thev discovered they could not amalgamate the Institute with the United Farmers, although they already had done so.    A long letter  was  before  them   horn    the   Department which  took occasion to point out certain things.    These  things were seemingly lost sight of at thc time  the Department called, lhc Smithers convention  of  farmers for thc purpose of considering  the  question  of amalgamating  the  United  Farmers  wilh lhc Institutes.    They were even overlooked  up to the time thc committee chosen al that convention of farmers decided'to amalgamate.  Thcy  were overlooked until thc actual work of amalgamation started.    It was then discovered that instead   of    thc   Institutes    absorbing  the   United  Farmers, as had bcen hoped for, the farmers preferred to.become United Farmers, and, as-United  Farmers they prepared  to absorb thc Inslilules.  It was then discovered by .the astute Department  leaders  that this could not  bc permitted.    Tbe  farmers as Institute members could swallow the  United Farmers, but the same farmers as members of the United Farmers could hot swallow the  Institutes.   And so thc farmers arc left high and  dry on a political reef.    Here lhcy expect to remain  until  after  the  convention of farmers in  Victoria February 25lli.  What thc Government is living now to do is  force upon the farmers the Agricultural Council  idea, particulars of which were referred to in  these columns last week. In plain English, and  without any camouflaging, thc Agricullural  Council idea is a red herring, brought forward in  order to hold control of the farmer and prevent,  if possible, his political independence. "It "is  all quite clear-do the average farmer.- Hc does  not need any enlightening on this point.  It will be interesting lo watch. Thc politician  will get away with il if he can. He Will have it  all cut and served, up in pieces when the farmers'  delegates go to Victoria in February. Farmer  politicians���������������������������wc have some of them in R. C.���������������������������and  some.are better politicians than thev arc farmers  ���������������������������they will be there'all bubbling over with the  Agricultural Council idea. The United Farmers'  delegates will bc taken off lhcir feet by tlie  cordiality of thc reception given Ihem, and thev  will be shown thc error of their ways. Will they  come home repentant, subdued, washed of their  sins and made politically clean?   Wc shall see.  ous. But the real obstacle in ihc way of legislation, is the strong lobby maintained at Victoria  by thc B. C. Electric whenever this 'question is  scheduled to come up.  Thc only way we-shall ever get a change in the  rule of the road i.s for 1hc press'of the Province  to. back up the demand from the people and hold  the- Government responsible for any fall down.  OTHER CHANGES AT OTTAWA  Thc Ottawa Government seems to have some  difficulty in convincing itself that it is as strong  or as safe as it would have the country believe.  Repealed changes have been ..made hi ministers;  'some through'resignation,"'others because of political reasons or any other reason bul that of inefficiency. In the last shuffle lhc Hon. Martin  Burrell" gels his. It will be remembered a few  weeks ago the Hon. Mr. Sifton was about to resign. Then came thc announcement that the  Premier himself was about to quit. Presto! and  another change is announced. This time the Hon.  Mr. Sifton climbs into the chair of Secretary of  Stale, and Hon. Mr. Burrell is.buried alive in the  Customs Department. Sir "Robert Borden remains in office. XV  These changes may remove "family differences" which may arise from time to time in; the'  Ottawa compact, but do thcy materially benefit!  lhc people in the way of added efficiency in the!  general administrative stall", or do Ihey alter1  the general policy? A.s Br'er Bates says, of thc |  Mission Cily Record, "both"���������������������������our dominion an<  our provincial governments���������������������������"need a new election so as to get in closer touch with lhc wishes of  the,people, ll cannot he said lhat either one of  them is todav meeting lhe demands of the people."

Can a man farm and maice money  'on 160 acres of non-irrigated land in  Western Canada? D. E. Baldwin, of  JCingsland, answers "Yes," and he is  speaking from experience. Before-  coming to Saskatchewan in 1906, and  taking up bis homestead in thc  'Kingsland district, tributary to tho  thriving city of Saskatoon, he had  pioneered in four states of the Union,  iis parents moving from Ohio, where  Jjc was born, to Iowa, when he was a  small child. Later he homesteaded  Jn Nebraska, near David City, and  ~was a pioneer settler in the State of  Kansas, where hc lived sixteen years,  and Oklahoma, where hc homestead-  ������������������d in 1895. After about ten years in  Oklahoma, he came to the Canadian  "West and began again on a homestead in 1906.  Here he has prospered, though he  'has never farmed more than 160 acres  k>t  land, and he  has constantly  recused the advice of his neighbors to  : increase the size of his farm.   He be-  ; tieves' he can  get more  real  living  out of life on a smaller farm.    His  ]policy is "always to run his business,  ��������������������������� i'i.nd not let it run him."   He is find-  i ng the operation of what in West-  ��������������������������� >rn   Canada is called a small farm..  irooth a pleasure and a profit to him.  Probably'his previous pioneering experience "helped him to form this opinion.-  [low he farms . a ; quarter section  and gets more money out of it than  many a farmer with three or four  .times as large an acreage, he told a  representative   of   the   North-West  Farmer, of Winnipeg, recently.  "I never went into grain farming,  but ��������������������������� made my money out of cattle,  hogs, horses and potatoes. I follow  tlie rotation of barley, wheat and  oats without any summer fallow  whatever. I fall plow for all my  grain crops and plow it again in the  spring which, in addition Lo 'plenty  of manure, has made the summer  fallow absolutely unnecessary forme  to practice. * Instead of sowing rye  on a separate, piece of land. I intend  to henceforth sosv it with the oat  crop when the oats are two inches  high. This, I understand, lias becn  tried in Manitoba and has been successful in certain part3. All the  grain is used for stock purposes, and  it is from that source that my revenue must he made to come."    .    .  "The summer feed for my sixteen  head of cattle is sixty acres of pasture, and in the fair they'run on the  stubble and winter rye.-.which is usually sown about the first of August.  During the winter they run out in  the day time and are stabled at night,  feeding" on straw, hay, sheaf oats,  and -usually a few turnips. Th'the  spring, winter rye. offers early. p.as?:  ture,"which they use until May 1st.  at which time they are taken off and  the rye,allov/ed to ripen to be cut for  crop. .-������������������������������������������������������-���������������������������  "My hog proposition if. operated on  a  ten-acre   hog   lot.   surrounded   by  woven wire twenty-s:x  inches high.  above which aro thr-ec barb wires.   I  usually plan on raising fvfo Utters a  year, one litter coming in April, and j becn successful   In obtaining   largo  one in September, "and find that ten  acres of pasture for five Diiroc sows  and their litters is sufficient to make  a great reduction in. the cos.t.of rearing hogs, in fact, furnishing all the  pasture they want to eat. Thc pasture consists of brome grass, a little  alfalfa, oats and' .wheal'.mixed and  rape. I have tried barley,' but fincl  it kills out much easier than oats  and wheat. The brome grass.is good  in tho spring and the.early fall. The  rape is usually sown in April, and  along with the grain pasture furnishes good summer feed. The hog  preposition is a siinpfe one.

He plants six acres to potatoes every season and he has always  had a crop of from 300 to 525 bushels to the acre. For all of his surplus hc has found a ready market at  never less than sixty cents a bushel,  while hc has received as high as $2.50  a bushel.  His 160 acres are divided inlo  sixty acres of pasture, ten acres of a  pig lot, five acres for house, burn  and hedges, and eighty-five acres in  crops, consisting of thirty-five acres  of oai5>, twenty-five acres of barley,  nine acres of rye, and "six of potatoes. Surrounding his buildings is  quite an extensive hedge consisting  of twenty rows of trees.

With  the exception of the evergreens, they  are now from eight to twenty-four  feet in height, forming a fine protection -which the owner would not part  with for a great deal of money.  : It is not difficulty figure that Mr.  Baldwin is deriving a very satisfac--  tory income from his 1G0 acre fami.

SMEDLEY, Sec'y  In search of apes and a tribe  of jungle dwarfs, Carveth Wells  and Marshall Mclvor, of Saskatchewan, leave Canada shortly for the jungles of J the Malay  Archipelago.  Darwin tells us that we all  come ifirom apes, and it is a  wonderful fact that there exists  today in the Malay jungles, a  tribe of dwarfs called Semang,  who in many respects are not  so far advanced as the Orangoutang of Rorneo, that immense ape with long red hair. ,  The missing jink no longer is  missing. Thc fossil remains of  a creature intermediate between  thc ape and man, known as the  Pithecanthropes Erectus, has  actually been discovered in the  jungles o<" Malay. "   JJ-  Polar exploration under the  conditions ^described by Stcflf-  anson is a holiday compared  with thc life of a jungle explorer. Whereas intense cold  and polar bears constitute the  chief danger, in Arctic exploration, death in a thousand difl'ercnt forms lurks in thc eternal  tdoom of a tropical jungle.  Tigers and tarantulas, scorpions  and centipedes, huge snakes like  the 30-foot python, and the 12-  foot Hahadryador King Cobra,  thc most dreaded reptile in the  world because it is the only one  that attacks without provocation; crocodiles, panthers, rhinoceros and-elephants are merely  examples of what awaits the intruder in the jungle.  Rut thc most dreaded death in  Malay is from the tiny poisoned  dart shot from the blow pipe of  the little dwarfs that these explorers intend to seek. Standing  only 4 feet 6 inches in height,  these little jungle men move  with remarkable agility through  the densest jungle, being almost  as much at home in the trees  as on the ground, wherc thcy  sleep.  Carveth Wells has already  spent six years in the iungle.exploring for the British Government. He and Major Mclvor .intend to cross the Malay Peninsula at its widest part, on foot,  returning to Canada via India  and Egypt, thus making a complete circuit of the world.
