One of the best of these  is to have 'the brood nest occupy  two chambers, and then by prying  up the upper chamber,.one can see  at a glance af the queen cells are being buil|t along the lower edge 'of  the combs in this chamiber.  In m'any parts- of southern On-  .tarJo, southern Quebec and simiilar  regions the desire .to swarm is  strong only during the first two or  three weeks df the honey"flow from  clover, and. the separation of queen  and brood by a queen excluder, the  queen- being put into a '-'.ower Chamber containing omly empty eomibs  and foundation, imlay be enough to  tide the. colony over this period-. Another good plan that imiay ibe enough  to prevent swarmiinlg in< tlhis region  is to use two brood chambers and  confine the queen' to the lower one  early in the 'honey flow, at whiich  time tlhe combs -in. this chiaaniber  usually contain a large munvber of  empty   cells.  .���������������������������  F.

A recommendation from Revelstoke,.: council urges the classification of ���������������������������..mainieiipalities, with a * separate Municipal Act comiplefe in itself for each class. This recommendation is endorsed by Endejnby.  as" its adoption "would clarify  municipal administration in a way  that nothing else could, enabling thc  smaller municipalities to carry on  their-affairs much more easily and  intel/igeii'tly than is possible under  the one  general  Act."  (Another ireconnmendation is made  iby Enderby wiith rcgaird to education  i which was first proposed by this city  but is now becoming the popular  view.. It maintains that as municipalities do not keep u.p the ,pu:blic  and" hi git schools merely for the  benefit of the people living within  iheir own areas,, but for the 'bone/it  of Canada at largo, therefore education is essentially a national 'matter  | ancl E'hould be substsiiiitiially subsidized by the Dom/nwon Government.  This pvinci'ple lias already been 'admitted in tihe grants made .for agricultural teaching,' and there is no  good reason why its " application  should not be extended.-  A ihl'rdi important '.recommen.da-  t'ion made by Endeirby urges the es-  'Agents for 20th Century  and Semi-Ready  .

QBut il -has been  impoE'Si'ble to get the phones and  .other equipment fast enough; nor is  the company prepared today to take  care of the new installations as rapidly as they are demanded.  District Manager A. 13. Godfrey,  of;' the Telephone Company was in-  Enderby last week, after a trip to  the Coast, where he went into thc  matter of increased equipment with  the company iheads and the Nor.thern  Electric su'P.'Ply company. So urgent  are the requirements, that Mr. Godfrey was given a free -hand to push'  work oil a fifty-foot addition to be  erected in connection with the central oflice at Vernon,, to make, room  for a new switchboard to rep'-ace  that at presfent in service, ancl wihich  has be em1 completely outgrown.  It is going to cost a big sum of  money to increase the equipment,  build the new oflice, and extend the  company's lines to open up the new.  territory look'ing for telephone conveniences, and to find this money-the  com.pany will increase the slock circulation���������������������������let-in new shareholders.
