C, FRIDAY,FEBRUARY 20, 1920  "Tell me what you Know is true:  I can guess as well as you."  $1.00 PEE YEAR  Three Representative Organizations Pass Resolutions Galling for More  Speed  The irrigation question is again  being brought to the fore in this  district. ' As C. A. S Atwood has  expressed a willingness to interview  the minister of lands on this subject  during his coming visit to the coast,  the Grand Forks Farmers' Institute,  at its meeting last Saturday, unanimously adopted the following reso  lution to support any representations that he might make to the  government:  "ToHon. Mr   Patullo, Minister of  Lands:  "Resolved by the Grand Forks  Farmers' Institute re irrigation pto-  ject���������  "Whereas, The engineers have  now completed their survey; and  whereas, their rsport is now in the  hands of your department; and  whereas, several orchardisls in this  valley are under the necessity of  putting in private systems at considerable expense, if the promptest  action is not taken by the government; and whereas, if such installations are made, it "will offer a considerable hindrance to the proposed  scheme. Therefore be it resolvod,  "That this Farmers' Inetitute  u*ge the Minister to make known as  early as possible the decision of his  department, and that steps to organize a Municipality be taken as  .���������soon as possible."  At a meeting of the executive of  the newly organized local branch of  the United Farmers of British Col  umbia, yesterday afternoon, a similar resolution was unanimously  adopted, and Mr, Atwood was.desig-  nated as the delegate to present it  to the government. It is also understood that a special meeting of  the city council was held some time  during the week, and that Mr. Atwood will also carry a resolution on  the same subject from that body  with him to the coast.

To these selected  females ' should  be mated either vigorous cock birds  that have already    been   proven   as  breeders' or strong,    vigorous, weli  matured cockerels that are not  only  the sons of high-produeing hens, but  the  brothers .-of  pullets, that  have  shown   by ; their   performance that  they.carry the quality   for high pro  duction.  Do not make the matings too  large. A good, vigorous cockerel of  the general purpose type on free  ranee may successfully look after  fifteen or twenty or even more females, but the same bird in confine  ment might "fall down" lamentably  with more than half that number.  Bo not expect a cock to attend to  the number of females that a cock''  eret would, and if you are looking  for early chickens use cockerels at  the head of the breeding pens, as  they are much more reliable early  in the season.  Officers for Ensuing' Year  Elected at.the Annual  Meeting" Held Last  Thursday  The annual meeting of the I O D  E. was held in the chapter room on  Thursday, February 12, with 'twenty-three members present.  .Reports were read by the secretary  and treasurer of work  done  during  the past year.    The  treasurer's   re  port showed   that 81191   had been  raised during the year.  The election of officeis for the ensuing year resulted as follows:  Regent, Mrs. Kingston; first vice-  regent, Mrs. Niles; second vice-  regent, Mrs. Reid; secretary, Mrs.  Davis; treasurer, Mrs. Henniger;  educational secretary,Mrs. Stephens;  echoes secretary, Mrs. Taylor; standard bearer, Miss Hall.

As it was, only one person received  injuries''of a minor natnred, the  others escaping without a scratch.  Inspector King, of tbe Mounted  Police, started out for a spin around  the valley with his wife and Mrs.  'D. W. Hodsdon, of Victoria. When  be got on the approach of tbe  bridge at this end, where the grade  is quite steep, he attempted to ap  ply the brake.. But apparently, from  all accounts, the brake failed to  work, and the car swerved around  crashed through the side railing  and plunged to the ground below, a  distance of about twenty feet. With  the exception of a severe shaking  up, Mr. and Mrs. King escaped  without a scratch, although the lat  ter was extricated grom beneath the  car .after, the accident; -Mrs. Hodsdon was not so fortunate, however,  and her injuries consisted of a broken  nose, a couple of teeth knocked out)  and a badly scratched face. She is  now in the Grand Forks hospital.  The car was badly wrecked.

FERTILIZERS IN  GAR LOAD LOTS  At the Farmers'Institute meeting last Saturday it was decided to  at once send to the Victoria Chemi  cai company for a car of fertilizprs,  the ranchers in attendance making  up a carload among them. The fertilizer, being purchased through the  institute, saves members 10 percent,  as the company allows that discount  to the institute.  As the ranchers are all getting  busy again, it was decided not to  hold another meeting until Saturday, March 13, at 8 p.m.  As Mr. Alwood expressed bis  willingness to interview the minis  ter of lands regarding the irrigation  project, he was asked to present to.'the  governmen* the resolution adopted  by the iustitute on this subject.  UNIIEraiRS  A New Organization That  May Enter Provincial  Politics���������List of Officrs  Elected  A new farmers' organization  which may play an important part  in the future political destinies of  this province was launched in this  last Thursday, when a largely attended meeting of ranchers took the  initiatory steps in the formation of a  local branch or the United Farmern  of British Columbia.  The officers elected are: President,  Mr. Mudie; vice-president, C. A. S.  Atwood;secretary, A. Peunoyer; executive committee, C. C. Heayen,  Thomas Povers and A. D. Morri  son. Mr. At-vcod was cho:en digits to the | rrjvir.cisl convention,  which is to. be held in Vancouver  on the 23rd and 24th  inst.  A long discussion ensued to the  whether or not the new organization  should take part in provincial politics. The delegate was finally.instructed to vote in favor of the pro-  iVioaiai.Qrganization entering the political arena.

The legislature at Victoria on  Friday rejected Mr. Giolma's resolution calling on the Dominion government to "cease charity doles" to  returned, men and to substilure a  policy of expenditures on necessary  public works. Instead, it passed an  amended resolution which "humbly  but firmly" <asks the Dominion gov  ernmentto annul the order in council "in 30 far as the granting of out  of work doles in British Columbia is  concerned." It also urges the Dominion government to expedite as  much as possible the commence  ment of projected and new public  works in this province and so contribute to the available avenues of  employment.  Those who voted for the original  motion were Messrs. Giolma, Mcintosh, Burdo, Duncan, F. j. A Mackenzie, A.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 1920  We have  not  been  able to convince ourselves that it would be to the best interests'of  the farming industry of British Columbia for  the farmers of the province to enter the political arena as a distinct party.   The clamor for  such action has undoubtedly been greatly' intensified by the recent victories of the farmers in Ontario.   But  the  farmers  in   British  ������������������Columbia are not as numerous in  proportion  to the population of the province  as they  are  in   Ontario, nor  are  the}7  as well organized,  and it might be many years before they could  elect a-majority of the members to the  legis-  ture. In the meantime, .were they  to engage  in open warfare against the government of the  day,   the  encouragement  with which the industry  has   been   treated in the past, and is  being   treated  with today, might  be  greatly  abated,   or  withdrawn altogether,   in   which  event not only the farmers but all other classes  of citizens would suffer, because the prosperi:  ty  of a  community  is dependent to a great  extent on the prosperity of the farmers.   The  farmers in this district say they do not  want-  complete  control  of the   government���������they  only want to elect enough members to secure  the balance of pewer.    It  seems  to  us   that  this object cpuId be attained by  placing  men  of their own call:ng in nomination in the   old  parties.    By following this course they would  not run the risk of losing the good-will of the  successful party.  The most striking thing that could happen  right now would be for everybody to go to  work.  The necessity of regaining export trade���������a  necessity that confronts nearly all the nations  of the world���������is leading to a reviving, of the  great industrial fairs at which new inventions  are exhibited. Argentina, Austria, Belgium,  China, Czechoslovakia, Denmark, Finland,  France, Germany, Great Britain, Holland,  Italy, Japan, Java, Norway, Roumania, South  Africa, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland have  already arranged to hold expositions; and because it is so long since there has been any  opportunity to compare the manufactures of  the different countries, the fairs are sure to be  interesting.  Twelve thousand applicants for a French  bonus for families of nine or over implies  108,000 interested.

You  might camouflage  the  bottle as Martian baptismal water,  because the total abstainers, are  now confiscating and  consuming  everything that has a  'kick' to it. Under the strict restrictions that  now govern our liquor.traffic, they appear  to  have acquired an unquenchable thirst.    Yes,  you may be right���������if I order too many bottles  I may acquire a chronic thirst myself.    But it  is not within the range of probability that I will  be able to drink enough to become a total abstainer!. I once  knew   one. of. these people  away back in 1918 who ordered  two cases of  the strongest Scotch whisky to cure  a  toothache���������and  I very strongly suspected that the  man had false teeth at that! Of course I don't  know -how false t^eth act when they commence  to ache, but it seems to me that they should not  require any more medicine  than   the  natural  teeth.  "The last bottle you sent had ...a 'kick' in it  as strong as a yardful of mules. I must tell  you my experiences with.that bottle !" When  it arrived I was just getting ready to put on  my electric wings and to go up into the higher  altitudes for'a little cool, fresh air,the day being  warm and sultry. As it was the first consignment I had received from'that source, I  was naturally curious to see how the liquor  looked, and in opening the bottle I spilled a  few drops on ray wings. As it appeared to be  all right, I replaced the cork', put the bottle  aside and started on my flight. I noticed from  the first that my control of my wings was not  as complete as it had been in former flights,  and that they persisted in going in a zigzag  course, but I attributed this to too mueh electricity in the air and continued on my course,  hoping that when I reached a higher altitude  they would recover from their tantrums. When  I arrived at the height usually travelled by the  aerial delivery trucks, however, my wings began to stagger like a drunken sailor, and, although I did my utmost to prevent it, I ran  into several of the trucks, disarranging the  parcels and making a sorry mess of the goods.  The epithets that were hurled at me by the lady  drivers were not at all complimentary. These  young tomboys used language that .the jitney  drivers in London before the war would have  envied. They appeared to have no respect for  grey hair���������my hair is now beginning to turn  grey.t They strongly hinted that the aerial  policeman must be asleep on his beat. In this  supposition they may have been correct, because repeated charges have lately been made  that our guardian of the air is in the habit of  crawling into an air pocket behind some friendly clouds to take a nap.  "My unfortunate mix-up with the delivery  floats spoiled my afternoon's outing, and I returned to my home. After opening a couple of  bottles of cold air in my library, I decided to  sample the contents of the bottle I had received earlier in the day. I was fully convinced  that the strength of the" drops of liquor I hadj  spilled on my wings before starting on my out-1  ing was responsible for their erractic action inj  midair, and I took a portion of the contents'  and diluted it by adding four parts of water���������  the usual quantity of-clilutant used by the  druggists when they were the whisky profiteers  t  \  Headache, nervousness, stomach trouble and many other  bodily ills can be traced directly to defective eyesight.

As soon as Mr Kennedy became aware that such was the  case he wired John Manly at Republic that he must call off his surveyors  or force would be used to put them  oft'.

But with a fairly fairly  good soil, from a well manured clovet-  soil as described, we should   consider  350 to 700 pounds of 3:9:6   commercial   fertilizer    would   represent   the  limit that may   he deemed desirable  and profitable.   This   would mean an  application   of   nitrogen    10������   to 21  pounds, of phosphoric acid 31-J to   (58  pounds and of potash 21 to 42 pounds  per acre. ,  If the ingredients are purchased rather than the   ready   mixek  fertililers (generally the more economical plan), the amounts would   be   nitrate of soda 75  to   150   pounds, superphosphate 200,to.'lOO* pounds and  sulphate   of  potash  40 to SO pounds  per acre.    On    light  and  very   poor  soils scantily manured/'the.' maximum  amounts here given may be s'imewliat  raised, dressings to  1000'. jSounds   or  more   per   acre   frequently.-proving  profitaole.    For soils rich in nitrogen,  as from clover and liberal   manuring,  the uitrogen in the above  recommen  dations may be.cutdown   one   third.  On clay loams the   potash   may likewise be reduced one third.  It is considered good practice by  many experienced potato growers to  supply a part of the nitrogen in the  form of an organic nitrogenous fertilizer, as dried blood. As both fertiliz  ers contain approximately the same  percentage of nitrogen, this may  readily be done by replacing half the  nitrate of soda in the above recommendation with an equal weight of  dried blood.  Probably the best plan of application is to broadcast the fertilizer mix-  rure on the prepared land when reworked in the spring and harrowed in.  If the method of puttingthe fertiiiz  er in the drill or furrjws is considered  more direct and more economical, care  should be . taken that the fertilizer  does not come into direct contact  wifh the sets.  e <uoryel{J&esidence  This is an eight roomed house in  excellent state of repair, situated on  the outskirts of the city, being Lot 7,  Block 5, and comprisingabont A acres  of finest cultivated land.

FERTILIZERS FOR  THE POTATO CROP  [experimental fakms note.]  Of all ordinary farm crops   that  of  the dotato is probably the most profit  ably   responsive  to   liberal     feeding.  The acceptance of this statement does  not iu the least ignore   the  fact  that  there  are   several   other factors that  play   a   very   important part toward  success   in   potato   growing���������type of  soil, character of season and the cultivation and spraying of the crop���������but  it means that with these factors   favorable the   crop   is a very responsive,  one to applications of plant   food and  the yield will be approximately   corn  mensurate with   the  available   plant  food supply.  ft is generally conc-jded that there is  no bettor preparation for the crop  than a clover or alfalfa sod well man  ii red (10 to 20 tons per acre) and  ploughed in the late .summer or early  autumn. This pructico of fall ploughing ensures the decay of the sod and  manure- and provides a good supply of  humus, which is so useful in keeping  the soil moist, and at the same- time  allows for the preparation of the plant  fojd in forms available for the use of  the crop Spring dressings of matin re  are not desirable, as they tend to en  courage the development of scab.  As is well recognized, soils difPr  greatly as to their productiveness���������a  quality largely dependant upon rich  noss iu available plant food. Jnd-ed,  there aro no two soils exactly alike in  this respect, and this fact makes it  impossible to lay down hard and fast  directions for fertilizing or give a formula that would be equally applicable  A Bi������> Newspaper Bargain  The Prince of Wales has captured  the hearts of all Canada. Rich and  poor, old and young, are enraptured  with his easy manner and happy expression. He is so different to what  many expected.  No wonder a great tlemand has  been created for a real life-like portrait of our popular future king.  Photographers and artists have failed  to secure a satisfactory snapshot of  the royal visitor He was not here to  pose for them. It remained for The  Family Herald and Weekly Star of  Montreal to secure a portrait that  would be satisfactory, and they have  succeeded. -Just before leaving for  Cattada the prince gave a special sitting to the celebrated London,^England, photographer, VanDyke. The  agents of The Family Herald were  instructed to secure - the right to reproduce it in Canada, and that great  weekly is now offering .it to its  readers.  The Sun has succeeded in making  an arrangement with The Family  Herald and Weekly Star by which  our readers may have The Sun, Tho  Family Herald and Weekly Star for  one year and a copy of the portrait for  82. 25. The demand for this portrait  in Canada will be enormous, and we  advise our readers to take advantage  of this opportunity without delay.  A curious idea among the Burmese  is that people born on the same day  of the week must not marry, and that  if they defy the fates their union will  be marked by much ill luck. To prevent these disastrous marriages every  girl carries a record of her birthday in  her name, each day of the week having a ietter belonging to it, and all  children are called by a name that begins with that letter.

BUSINESS c^MAN,  have you ever thought  that advertisingptitF you in  good company? It is an old  saying that a man is known  by the company he keeps.  When you join the ranks of  the advertisers you join the  ranks of. the biggest and  most successful merchants  and manufacturers in the  world.  How many large concerns  can you name in any large  city in the country? Name  them and you will notice  that all are big advertisers  and all are leaders in their  lines.    Ask your friends   to  if  name the most successful  merchants they know in the  big cities, and in each case  the name of a great advertiser will be mentioned.  The same rule is true of  smaller citiej1 and towns.  The successful merchants  are the advertisers. The  advertiser stamps himself as  one having confidence in  himself and his wares, as  one proud of his calling and  seeking publicity and the  test of patronage.  ra  Jg,  Ms������������& m The Su  ca  f If ona, First 8ti;kkt ]*iii**m>juaeBiW8&  J-dUB'il'Vi���������nm in  H&.>i;;Vi-*<i������**":  THE   SUN.   GRAND    FORKS,    B. C.  News- of the City  A wedding was solemnizod in  Holy Trinity church last Tuesday  evening, when W. Hardy was married to Mrs. Hobbius, both of  Grand-Fork's. The happy couple  left on the C.P.R. for Vancouver,  where they will reside  BUY RED GLOVER  ^SEED EARLY  A pleasant social evening was  spent at the Catholic parish house  on Tuesday last, when about forty  couples were entertained by the  ladies of the Catholic church. Coffee  was served and a very enjoyable  evening was spent.  Mrs. Frank Conyers is.recovering  from a severe attack of- influenza at  her home in Spokane.  Geo. Staofield, of the provincial  police, has been paying an official  visit to the logging camps'in the  district, and returned to Grand  Forks on Wednesday last.  Geo. C. Egg returned from' a. visit  to Kelson on Sunday. He was accompanied by his little daughter,  who will make her home in this city  in future.  Mr. and Mrs. 0. A. Collins arrived iu the ciiy on Monday from  Victoiia.,and they will take up their  residence here. Mr. Collins is a  member of the Mounted Police,  and has been transferred to the-lbcal  post.  The Great .Northern railway has  established a yard for bridge material  at the Columbia avenue crossing,  near the Sun ranch,where it is stored  and from whence it is distributed to  other poiuts as required.  Prime red clover seed was quoted  at 835.55 per bushel on the Toledo  market of the 6th instant. Toronto  I prices then ranged abont S3 per  bushel in advance of Toledo prices.  Clover seed that would grade  "prime" in Toledo could be bought  in Toronto at ������38 50 and, because of  exchange condition?, delivered to  United States points at approximately $33 per bushel, or about  $2 50 less than tbe Toledo price.  The money situation, short supplies,  and an earlier demand in the United  Sates will explain the heavy ex  ports of clover seed.  , The price of red clover seed tins  advanced almost S14 per bushel on  the Toledo market since May last.  The world supply will not be sufficient to meet normal requirements.  In these circumstances, Canadian  farmers who delay the purchase of  their red clover- seed requirements  until'seeding, tirxie.-may be unable to  obtain supplies at any price. -  LIFT CORNS OR  CALLUSES OFF  Doesn't hurt!    Lift any corn or  callus off with fingers  B.-'C.-NO PLAGE  FOR SUGAR BEET  There is not a  single case   of  in  iluenza in Grand Fork of local   people. While there are a few   cases  iu  the   hospital, they   have   all    been  brought in from outside points.  The G.W.V.A. gave a smoker and  concert in their hall last night.  W.

Barrow, minister of  agriculture, states that he has given  the matter' considerable attention,  but, owing to labor difficulties, he  thinks British Columbie hardly in :-i  pos.itiou to engage in tbe sugnr beet  branch of the business. This, he  says, requires an abundance of help,  and there could not be found in  British Columbia any section of the-  province where it would be possible  to secure sufficient cheap labor to  produce successfully enough sugar  beets to supply a refinery. He says  that fully 18,000 acres would be re  quired, one-quarter to be used each  year on the rotation system.  Don'fc suffer! A tiny bottle of  Frcezone costs but a few cents at any  drug store. Apply a, few drops on the  corns, calluses and "hard skin" on bottom of feet, then lift them off.  YVhen Frcezone removes corns from the  toes or calluses from the bottom, of feet,  the skin beneath is left pink and healthy  and   never   sore,   tender   or   irritated.
