In order to have such information available, the Board asks that a duplicate  copy bc rendered with the original report, which  has to be forwarded to thc Department', leaving  the Board with no means of giving the information which should be on hand.  Revelstoke-Okanagan Wagon Road  Ordinarily, al lhis season of the year, there is  lillk- cans.-Vor complaint wilh regard lo tlie condition of llu1 wagon road lo Mabel Lake. It is in  Uie fall, afler lhe lale rains, and when the road  breaks up in the early spring lhal complaints arc  usually heard. This season little or no work has  been done on the road, and lhc upper end, with  here and lhere an exceptional stretch., lhc road1  is in a condition bordering on the desperate. {  In is dillicull lo understand the road depart-j  meal's apparent indilVerence lo lhc complaints  of the people in relation lo lhis road. There are  parts of lhe roadway that have been cut into ruts  thai all but stall a car; corduroy patches cut  ihrough and thc jagged log ends sticking up  everv' wliich way; holes in bridge approaches  where the earth has fallen away from thc cordu-i  l-oy Limbers; nils and pot holes which never  should be. allowed lo exist; and, yet, not af tap of  repair work is being done where-the patching is  most needed.  have   becn   complained   of   since  These holes  earl}- spring,  week to week.

The opening  of the camping and outing season has brought to  lhe lake dozens of autos each Sunday. More men  are being employed at and in lhe vicinity of Mabel Lake this season than usual, and the need of  road repairs never was greater.  When we consider the enormous revenue lhc  government draws from Hie limber cut in thc  vicinity of Mabel Lake, and what it means lo the  districl lo have such a force of mc-i employed as  the lumber company employs," it is amazing thai  there should he llie indilVerence shown by thc department as is,shown.

This of itself would  not be so great' an advantage had Revelstoke an  outlet by motor road in any other direction, as  has Kamloops, and othcr districts lo be reached  from the Okanagan. But in the case of Revelstoke, a molor road- into thc Okanagan would  give I hose people an outlet for week-end trips by  car lhat they havc in no othcr direction.

The Connecticut Agricullural Experiment Station has arrived at thc conclusion, after a long  scries of experiments, lhat neither man nor mice  man thrive without fhe food elements contained  in milk and absent from lhc vegetable kingdom.  Albino-rats were chosen as the chief subjects of  experiment because lhcir diet was more easily  controlled than lhal of larger animals. But we  arc assured by Miss Edna Ferry, an expert of tho  Connecticut Station, that the results of these'experiments apply as definitely to human beings as  to rodents.  The rats were fed carefully balanced rations of  the necessary food constituents: proteins, fats,  carbohydrates and salts.Thc proportions of these  food elements were almost exactly thc same as  in milk, but Ihc protein use was derived from  wheal Hour. Thc result in every case was. to  stunt growth or stop it altogether. When one-  third of the wheal protein was replaced by an  equivalent amount in the form of meat, eggs or  milk the animals grew at a normal rate. When  protein from corn was used lhe effect was even  worse than with lhc wheat diet. "The animals  lost weight rapidly and dicd almost as soon as if  no food" wore ealen at all. When sonic amino  acid was added to the corn protein Jjfe was maintained but growth still remained jaacjvward. Tt  required the addition of casein from milk or  cheese to bring thc unhappy rat back to normal  development.  Miss Ferry 'illustrated the upshot of onc experiment in terms of human life. A rat was kept  stunted for about a fifth of its life on. vegetable  protcin-and. then .casein,was_addcd_.to. the diet.  ''Calling a man's span of life seventy ycars fhe  case would be somewhat like that of a boy kept  a.s a healthy infant in arms until fourteen years  of age. weighing perhaps sixteen -. lo twenty  pounds, and who. by a change in diet when fourteen ycars old. attained a man's size and weight  at lhe ago of twenty-one." ���������������������������  The butter fal in milk is also of high importance. If a young rat is fed wilh a normal ration  except thai all la Is supplied come from lard or  vegetable oils it will grow normally for about  eighty days and then decrease in weight, suffer  from sore eves, and eventually die. A small  amouni of buller fat added to the diet restore.*;  health and permits gain in weight lo continue.  Many children in lhe famine-stricken regions of  Europe had heen observed to sulTcr from ulcers  on the eyeball. Il was learned lhat thy had been  led on broad- and skim milk. As soon as thev  were given whole milk or cod liver oil lhcir eyes  began lo recover and most of them were saved  from blindness. For adult rat's and men. however, bul tor fat does nol seem so indispensable.  Milk contains all the needed food elements in  due proportion and that is lhc only food whicb  .does so. Milk sugar has the same food value as  cane sugar. Milk protein i.s as good as meal protein, and milk is far cheaper, than meat in proportion lo the protein .supplied. Milk fat, as can  be seen from lhc price of buller, is one of the  mosl valued fa Is. Milk also contains valuable  mineral salts which are inadequately supplied by  mosl foods. Finally milk contains all three of  of the vilamines which are essential to growth:  the fat-soluble vitamine, the water-soluble vita-  mine and the vilaminc which prevents scurvy.

The ripe bean is a form of food  very much neglelcted iiu Canada,  l^ack of. variety is one of. the serious  faults im our national diet. Many  'People seem- Inclined" te use a "very  limited number of foods and., as far  as posslbre, to make each day's meals  ���������������������������resemible,. .tihat of the 'day ibe-  Pcre; whille in many caises the dull  ���������������������������routine of a seven-day cycle prevails'  It is a well-known fact that a varied  diet is more wholesome than a restricted one, and, especially in these  times when good food- lis scarce and  high in price, it is really deplorablc-  to.note the neglect of some of the  best Canadian-grown fotod materials,  such as beans, peas, Indian corn and  barley, - while ain imported product,  rice, remailns quite popular in spite  of.- Its inferior quality as food and  the commercial obligation that Canadian money must be senlt to some  other country to ipay for. it.   -  Of all the neglected foods, the  bean Is perhaps the most important.  It contains a large percentage of  protein (approximately double that  found in cereals) and protein is the  mlost expensive Ingredient which we  cdntenme. Th'e bean may fairi'y be  -said���������������������������to-=r.ank=fir!_t^-amon*g^the=com-  mon foods of vegetable origin; peas  are of almost equal value, but wheat  ami barley fall far below. Oats are  distinctly inferior on the whole.  though they contain much more fat  than beans. While It is not true,  as has ibeen asserted, that vegetable  protein, as found in beans, can entirely take the place of animal pro-  tejfrt, as foundi irt meats, eggs ot  milk, ncverthe'ess t'he vegetable proteins have a high food value and the  bean could, ln many instances, - be  advantageously substituted for 'part  of the meat ration., Considerable  economy would be attained in this  way, ais beans are very cheap indeed  in comparison with many animal  products. It must be noted, 'however,, th-afl beans "canm/ot be eaten  freely by anyione.* - There are a .few  inidividualls for whom they seem  quite unsuitable; (but the vast mia-  jojritoy of .people would have better,  cheaper and more enjoyable meals if  bea'ms- were used more often. Matters of diet are so ofteta settled .by  customs of the country rather than  by intelligent thought that it Is very  hard to brinlg about chanlges, however desirable. Yet there seeims no  good reason why the r������������������.gulair use of  beans should ibe restricted to Massachusetts aind a few other favored' localities.    Im> these days wihen, owing  to the high  cost of living,-many individuals are inclined to break away  from   some   of  t'he   older-and   more  expensixe  customs,   the  introduction  of the,bean as a regular" article of  diet   offers- an   opportunity   for   the  j display J of   a   little   originality,, and  .-the- exercise of>"judicious .economy at  jthe;.sa*me time.-^^Ohas.
