Subscription, $2 a year; 5c copy  United Growers Close Most  Successful Year Since Organization  In their annual report - to the  shareholders the directors of the  Okanagan United Growers show  that 1919 was the most satisfactory  year in the history of the organization.  The financial statement for the  year shows a surplus on' fruit ancl  vegetables handled for affiliated local associations of $33,490.90. Added to this: Interest on savings bank  account, $705.70;' surplus on handling  charges   for   unaffiliated   associa-  equipment available to take them  over. This is one of our great drawbacks in exporting to tbe United  States, as the Canadian Railways  do not allow their equipment to go  there.  This market has also shown  marked improvement in the demand  for Okanagan fruits. We increased  cur shipments of rfuits irom 20,-  520 packages in 193 S "to 78,480  (packages in 193 9.

Dr. Kifig, minister of public works. By it the  province is divided into two traffic  districts number one to include Vancouver Island ancl that part of the  lower mainland in which Vancouver  and surrounding settled districts are"  located; number two, the remainder  of the province. The change in the  rule of the road in district number  one will take effect on December 31,  1 921,. although provision is made  for the lieutenant-governor-in-coun-  cil by proclamation making it effective at an earlier date either as to  the whole ������������������or any- part of the district. In district number'two the  change will'take effect on July 15  next.  The bill also provides for the new  system, of classification of highways  into "primary,*' , "secondary" and  "local" highways, such classification  to be made by the minister of public  ���������������������������vorks and to- be ratified by agreement "between the minister and  municipalities where , such run  through   "municipalities. -  Cost of construction and maintenance of primary and secondary highways shall be apportioned as follows:_  Primary, 75 per cent by the department and- 25 per cent by the  municipalities; secondary, -eqaal  share in , construction cost and, as  to maintenance, 40 per cent by. tha  department ancl 60 per cent by the  municipality.  In the case of local highways the  entire cost of construction and  maintenance shall be borne by the  m nicipality. In the case of secondary highways running through  municipalities of less than one  thousand population -the" department  may contribute as high as 75 per  cent for construction and maintenance. Control of the construction  and maintenance of. primary highways will be in the hands of the de-'  partment, of secondary in the muni1  cipalities.  Fifteen days' notice may- be given  by the department'to a ���������������������������municipality  that a secondary highway is .- not  kept in proper condition", .and if it'is  not then put into proper repair the  department nifty step in and charge -  the cost thereof to the municipality./  MARAcXKWS  Mr.   McCleary,- who  purchased the  man  an.

The reason for .this  decrease was on account of space  not being available when shipments  -should have moved to enable our  apples to be on that market at the  right season. We believe there will  be  considerable  increase in   1920.  Owing to the embargo placed on  shipments of apples to Great Britain  in 3 917, and which was in force in  3 918, we were unable to ship a  single box of fruit abroad. - We,  .however, shipped 9S.716 boxes In  3 919. Letters from buyers in Great  Britain, and also from the Canadian  Fruit Trade Commissioner, were  very flattering indeed. A very  heavy increase in shipments for  3 9?0   is predicted. !'  "1917 was practically our first  season of entering into the United  States market. That year we-shipped five cars of crabapples only. Our  increase in shipments of all packages of fruit, apples and crabapples  in 191S amounted to 21.4S0 packages. We feel that we have made  remarkable progress in opening up  this market fcr our fruit, which  comprises apples, crabapples, plums  and prunes, Tn 1919 shipments  amounted to 3 8 0,471 packages of  all fruits, the heavy shipments being crabapples, Jonathans, Mcintosh  Reds ancl Italian ' pru nes. The American public are especially fond of  our crabapples and Mcintosh Reds.  Previous to the season 1919 we  never exported*.a single box of Mcintosh Reds, and in 1919 we sent to  the United States 29,467 boxes.  Shipments in seasons to' come will  be   limited   only   by     the     railroad  been attained, and it is not too much  to say that the satisfactory results  at present being realized are largely'  due to the efforts of - this' organization, ancl made possible only by their  support. The success attained should  result in a much larger support bc-  i ng���������������������������gi ven���������������������������by^growers^-wh Or=-f or��������������������������� one  reason or another, have hitherto  held   aloof.  "There   were  no  changes    in   the  selling   force   during   t'he   year.      It  was  a  season calculated  to  try  the  mettle of any sales manager���������������������������bumper  crop,   neccss'tating  looking  afield  for  new   markets;   a  sugar  shortage  which all bui  paralyzed1 every effort  to  dispose of soft fruits, crabs, and  vegetables   requiring   sugar;      a   car  shortage   which   made   it   physically  impossible  to  move  out varieties  at  proper   seasons   and   in     accordance  with   orders;   and   lastly   an   unprecedented   freeze   in   October,   which  put   all   calculations   and     estimates  "in the air."    This was surely a situation      requiring   a   steady     guiding  'hand.      Vour   board      were      indeed  fortunate   in   having   as   sales   manager,  at such, a time,  a  man  of Mr.  Lowe's  proven  ability and  resourcefulness,   and   wish   to   record     their  appreciation   of -his-successful   work  in   one  of  the  most  trying  years   in  the   organization's   history.

It is perhaps loo early io say jusl what Iho inauguration o'f Lhc- eight-hour,, work day is going  lock) for labor, bul. judging by whal is lo bc  soon today it is nol leading to increased ellieicncy  nor even an increased desire for eflicicncy on the  pari of lhe laboring men. The demand for an  eightrhour day has been followed by anolher Unix 'six-hour day. The cjneslion of ellieicncy, or  lhe ability !o "deliver the goods does not seem  to have entered Jnlo Ihe question. It is only onc  oJ" fewer hours of labor and increased pay.  ���������������������������If this is all lhc eight-hour day means to the  voting nlcn and young women of today who arc  starling oul lo make a living at any trade or  profession or calling, then Ihey must look oul  for thc future. Canada today needs greater elfi-  eieney in labor morc lhan labor needs lhe sb offer hours. Not that employers are opposed to  :-llic shorter hours, but, wilh the. shorter hours  has nol come Ih.c efficiency predicted, nor yet  Ihe desire for efficiency. Speaking generally,  laboring men arc not making any good use of  Ih.c increased hour er two of res! JYom daily toil.  They are. not striving to make themselves mon1  efficient. In -fact, under Ihc old svslem- of ten  hours--a day, while wc would not advocate going  back to jl, laboring men. especially the young  men, made grealer exertion towards efficiency  lhan Ihey do today-  'Last week fhe' Victoria legislature refused to  consider legislating for an cight-hoiuv, day for  the Province?, J'or Ihe reason lhat thc Federal  Parliament is deba'ing ja national eight-hour  dav. ll-is generally conceded that Oilawa had  besl keen ils fingers off orol-lcms of lhis������������������char-  ucler.

This he says, is not a political  function of government, but a. mailer of thrifty  national housekeeping requiring intelligence and  organizing ability. Somc such a system could  be inaugurated in Canada lo advantage, and if  nol by Ihe Government then by Ih.c farmers  themselves  through .lhcir organization.  THURSDAY, APRIL 1, 1920.

Recently a questionable was  sent out from Washington. Some forty thousand or morc fanners replied. An analysis of  Ihe replies reveals three chief grounds of complaint- First, inability lo oblain labor to work  Ibe farms; hired help ancl the farmer's children  having been lured to the cilv by higher wages  and easier living.

As many of our , readers know,  G. H. Hutton, Superintendent of  Animal Industry Branch of the C.  P. R. Department of Natural Resources, has been conducting experiments in the feeding of silage at  the company's Strathmore farm for  some considerable time. Very recently, Mr. Hutton invited a party  of some 4 0 representative citizens  of Southern Alberta, including  prominent breeders, dairy farmers,  business men ancl newspaper representatives, to spend a few hours at  tho Strathmore farm ancl actually  see the Wirious operations conducted  first hand.  The test was made.with 40. Holstein cows, who were rationed, first  on sunflower, then 'peas and oats,  and, lastly, on corn silage, for a  period of 'wo weeks on each of these  different feeds. Only the last seven  days of each period was. counted in  the test, and it so happened that the'  weather was at its coldest while the  cows were being fed sunflower silage. In addition to the silage, a  certain '"amount , of loose feed was  foci, but the amount was exactly  the same for "each cow so that'the  test would bc absolutely fair to the  three types of silage.  The following is the result:  ������������������ DfiUv, milk     .   Butterfat  ' Silage yield per cow    ~  test  Sunflowers  t. . . .27.24 l.bs 3.6  Peas and  Oats. . 25.88 lbs 3.5  Ccrn  .26.4^ tbs 3.4 "  A gain of two .pounds per anim.il  ���������������������������')or day was made on sunflower silage, andcone pound per day'"on* peas  and oats, but there was "a loss of  1.85 lbs. .per animal per day while  on corn silage.  .Sunflowers   Best."  The tests show that the feeding  value of sunflowers is superior to  that of the other two; .The yield  per acre of sunflowers on irrigated  land on the farm was 3'4.6 tons and  that of corn 14 tons, while the yield  fif.-peas and oats was seven, tons. It  was only necessary to irrigate the  sunflower crop once during last season, while the other two crops had  to bo irrigated twice. The sunflower does not seem1 to require as  much moisture to grow. But a test  lias shown that* the sunflower carries 82 per cent moisture, while  corn carries 78 per cent and the  peas ancl oats, 63 per cent. This  large amount of'"-moisture in1 the  sunflower does not decrease the  feeding value, as was shown in the  test when tlie same n lumber of  ipounds per day were fed to each  cow.  Mr. Hutton. declared that the re-  suflt of this successful experiment in  the use cf sunflowers as silage has  been "to double the stock carrying  capacity of Alberta land."  AS su_n'flo.wers._are_less..susceptib1c  an ordinary drill so arranged by  plugging spouts so that it will sow  in drills three feet apart. From 12  to 15 lbs of seed is sown to the acre.  The crop at the Strathmore farm  last summer stood 14 feet high.  The sunflower serves as a cleaning crop for the land, and as it ia  sown the same way as corn ancl also  inter-tilled, leaves the land in good  condition for crops to follow.  ,   The Silo Used.  The style of silo used at the  Strathmore farmi is known- as the  stave silo, which is the one most  generally, in use. A good carpenter,  assisted by three men, can erect a  20x40 foot silo of this type, with the  exception of the roof, and after the  concrete foundation has -been laid in  ifoui" clays. The last silo erected  at the farm is equipped with a circular h'ip roof which increases the  capacity of the silo by 20  per cent.  This test, undoubtedly shows that  the sunflower as a silage for railk  cows is better in every way than  corn or peas and oats. The results  of a test with the same silage on  beef cattle is not as yet available.  The .experiment is being tried on  baby beef and the cattlemen of the  party were of the opiniion that those  on the sunflower -silage 'are doing -  equally as well, if not better than1  the others. c  The silo fills a unique place in  the live-stock industry, rt provides  a type of feed not otherwise obtainable .except by the storage of roots  in large quantities. Succulent feed  is the>great lack in winter feeding  in Western Canada. Our winters "  are long and our\feeds are dry, andD  because of that we ,^are greatly  handicapped in live-stock feeding as  coinipared to mild climates where  cattle are able to graze or get at  least   part  of  their-- feedr^thomselves  ���������������������������iroughout   practicality   the     whole .  year.       Experiments    conducted,, at  '  Brandon   Experimental   Farm-    have;  shown  a .reduction  of   23  .per  cent  in. the  cost   of .putting a,  po-und   of  beef   on   steers   through  the" use "of" >  ensilage as part of-a, ration^-instead  of  with  a good  ration comiposed of *  all> dry feeds. ,  Mr. Hutton deserves a-great deal  of praise for the "experimental" work  be is doing in improving ������������������he fodder  conditions of the west. He is- making arrangements to have a number  of prominent breeders and business  men from- Northern Alberta-take a , :  trip to the Strathmore farm, at an  early date so that they too can get  first-hand" information.��������������������������� Farm and  Ranch  Review. ��������������������������� '"  He who is firm in will moulds the world  to  himself.���������������������������Goethe.  to frost than, corn- ancl can be grown  on dry land, Mr. Hutton stated that  there was no .portion of Alberta in  ���������������������������wihich silage couUd not be grown. If  in certain districts success had been  achieved with peas and- oats,- and in  others corn could be grown, it would  not be wise to advise that those be  abandoned. It wps shown, however,  ���������������������������that everywhere one form of silage  or tho other might be grown, and it  w-ould be well worth while in 'all  cases to plant at least a small acreage to sunflowers in every district  for   experimental   purposes.  Many  Will  Build?  One result of the expedition to  Strathmore, and of the publication  of the figures, will undoubtedly be  a large increase in the number of  silos in the farming districts. Some  of the cattlemen and farmers who  visited the farm stated they would  ���������������������������build  this  year.  The erection of small silos, 36x  16 feet, and. of a capacity sufficient  for the ordinary farm, -"at a cost of  ?590, will be possible during the  present season, according to infor-  m-ation ia the hands of the provincial, government.
