C., FRIDAY, JUNE 28,  1918  $1.00 PER YEAE  LEW OF 3D  MILLS APPROVED  City Council Adopts the  Same Rate as Was in  Force Last Year  bylaw and the tax rebate, bylaw.  Both were advanced to the third  reading stage.  TOM JEWELL'S HOUSE  DESTROYED BY FIRE  Mayor Acres and Aid. Harkness,  McArdle, McCallum, McDonald and  Schnitter were present at the regular  meeting of the city council on Monday evening.  The chairman of the finance committee recommended that the tax  levy for the current year be apportioned as follows: School, 6 mills;  special, 16 mills; general, 8 mills.  He also recommended that a dis  coimt of 10 per cent be allowed on  all taxes paid on or before August  26'. The report was adopted.  The city clerk was instrucied to  ssnt out accounts for retail licenses  to all the hotel proprietors in the  city.  The advisability of holding a tax  sale this year was discussed at considerable length. The opinion of  the council appeared to be that a  sale is inevitable.  On the recommendation of _the  chairman of the water and .light  committee, the chief of police was  appointed deputy water commissioner.  The chairman of the water and  light.committee recommended that  a bell be procured for the West end  fire hall, and also that the roof of  the building be repaired. The report was accepted, and the matter  of repairing the roof was left in the  hands of the committee.  The. chairman of .the water and  light committee stated that there  was some dissatisfaction with the  present method of street sprinkling.  Some of the business men insisted  on using a hose for street sprinkling.-  The question was discussed, and the  council came to the conclusion   that  Tom Jewell's residence, a short  distance east of the Cooper bridge,  was burned to the ground shortly  before C o'clock last Saturday evening. The loss is estimated at about  ijplOOO, withno insurance.  Mrs. Jewell had lighted a fire in  the kitchen to prepare supper, and  then she went out into the garden to  do some work. A few minutes later  her attention was attracted by the  cries of her little son, and when she  looked up she discovered the house  to be in flames. She called to her  neighbors for help and then made  an attempt to enter the house to  save some of the household effects,  but the lire had gained so great  a headway that she was unable'to  do so; When the neighbors arrived  it was impossible to get anywhere  near the house. Both the front door  and kitchen door of the- house had  been left open, which made a perfect  draft, and the flames spread through  the building with lightning rapidity.  The building, household furniture  and clothing were completely destroyed, Mrs. Jewell being unable to  save even a change of clothing.  Mr. Jewell has been working in  Princeton for the past two or three  months, and was not at.home when  the fire occurred. The. family has  gone through considerable hard  luck during the past year, Mr.  Jewell having been confined tu the  hospital for some time last winter.  They are deserving of an assistance  that can be rendered, thein by the  people of the community.  1910    Civilians'  and    477  Doulcs Accounted for in  City and Valley  middle of June until about the middle of S'-ptHmhpr.

J. D.  Reid, minister of railways' and  canals, is making strenuous efforts  to prepare for the grain movement  this coming fall and winter. With  European grain stocks of the allies  at a low ebb it is realized that the  any ratepayer could use a hose for western Canada crop will likely  street sprinkling if he wished to pay have t0 be rushed   to the Beaboard  the   regular   sprinkling  fees.    The as soon as it is threshed, and an uu-  matter was left in the hands  of the  usually heavy  grain   movement   is  water and light committee, with instructions to bring in a report at the  next meeting.  On the recommendation of the  chairman of the water aud light  committee, and on motion of Aid.  Harkness and McArdle, the wives of  soldiers, who have gone overseas  were given free water for 19IS, the  same to be charged to the water and  light department.  The clerk reported that owing to  the adoption of a new pound bylaw  it would be necessary to appoint a  new poundkeeper. On motion of  Aid. Harkness and McArdle, the  clerk was instructed to call for applications for poundkeeper at the  next meeting.  The question of moving the pound  from the city buildings to the foot  of Main street was discussed, and  the chairman of the board ol works  was instructed to obtain an estimate  of the cost of construction of a new  pound and to report" at the next  meeting.  The weights and measures  bylaw  was reconsidered and finally passed,  Aid. McGallum was granted leave  The taking of the man and woman  power census closed in this city on  Saturday night. At the fout regis  tration places here 667 male civilians were registered, and 591 females  These reported 682 children under  the age of sixteen years, making a  total of 1940 civilians accounted for  in the city and the immediate surroundings of the valley, but not including Carson and Lynch Creek.  In addition to these figures, 218  male Doukhobors and 259 females,  or a total of 477, were also registered. But the Douks cou d not be  induced to divulge the secret of how  many children under the age of 16  they have.  Practically a complete listof those  registered, excepting  the   Doukho  bors, with the serial number of each,  was taken off and filed at the   city  office.  During one of the registration  d*ys Wasel Wdllsoff, who .broke  away frdmthe Carson colony some  years ago and started a Douk settlement of his own, made a demon  stratum agiinst registering by  parading about twenty of his fol j  lowers through the streets and up to  the city office. Every effort was  made to induce him to register bis  following, but without avail.  The deputy registrars wish to  thank the public for their kind and  courteous replies to questions, and  also tender their thanks to the Donald Hanky Chapter, 1.0.D.E , for  their efficient serviees, which were  so freely given and were of such  valuable assistance to the deputy  registrars.

C.  has also come from alfalfa. Evidently much honey is being lost on  farms growing a I fa la in southern  Alberta and in certain sections of  the dry belt of British" Columbia for  want of bees to colhct it. Alfalfa has  b-en found to secrete abundant nectar under certain conditions at the  experimental farm at Brandon, Man.  but it appears of minor importance  as a honey plant so far east, and it  is of practically no value for honey  production in eastern Canada  The   alfalfa   honey   produced   at  Lelhbridge is of light color  and   ex  cellent   flavor, granulating   quickly-  after it is extracted from the combs  ments  for This Year  to 81,124,886  Germany's Enemies  The state department gines this as  the list, of countries to date at war  with Germany: ".Belgium, Brazil,  China, Cuba, France, fire it Bri'ain.

Payment will be made on  August 1 to stockholders on record  July 19.  This will increase the disbursements this year to Si, 124,886 and  the grand total to 810,198,895. A  continuance of the disbursements at ���������  the current rate should make the  totil payments 61,499,962   in   1918,  the same   as   in    1917,  as  against  $1,049,895  n  1916.  The current rate of disbursement  is about a quarter of the net earnings, which have been ranging from  $400,000 to 8500,000 a month by  estimate, or in the neighborhood of  85,000,000 a year.

There is under order by the rail  ways and canals department no less  than 8500 cars, of which 7000 are  boxcars which can be used for moving grain.

Had the colonies been  kept from swarming the yield would  probably have exceeded 100 pounds  pel colony.

Oklahoma, through its council of defense, has  established what is virtually a draft of every  able-bodied male between the ages of 15 and  60 years. It has pledged them to do at  i least two weeks of farm work during the  | .summer or fall. Kansas, through its commercial clubs and other organizations, has made a  state-wide effort of the same kind and expects  every able-bodied citizen���������banker, merchant,  minister-or lawyer���������to prove his patriotism  by spending at least two weeks in the harvest  fields.  (T-  FEIDAY, JUNE 28, 1918  Bolsheviki doctrines have  brought Russia  down from one of the greatest  food  producing countries  on  the globe to a condition of  starvation.    Drunk with liberty,   which  they  did not understand, filled  vv'th  idealistic notions about the equality of man, and  lacking  individual initiative, production in Russia has  practically ceased, according to the evidences  reaching  the  outside world.   Transportation  and distribution is so disorganized   that  even  were the peasants of the land producing their  usual amount of foodstuffs, the people in  the  manufacturing population would still be without   the  necessary  food  supplies  to sustain  them in safety and comfort. Unless the people  of   Russia  steady down  and organize themselves or allow other authorities   to   organize  them, there is the possibility  of one  of the  most  stupendous disasters, to'a nation and a  great people that  evpr occurred   in   histoiy.  Without  authority for  whom they have fear  and respect, the Russian peasant ..seems, to be  without motive.or initiative. We read of'peas-  ants in their anger against the property  holding class of the late aristocrat regime destroying not only the personal effects of the nobility  and   the  owning-class,   but   the   very  crops  which they had themselves under the  former  social    organization   produced   for   the   nation at large.    In their reaction against property owning, they have destroyed   the  goose  that laid the golden egg. We read of poasants  in   certain   villages   having  a*one to such ex-  tremes as to seize the cattle,of the land owner,  now  deposed, flay them alive  and  turn them  loose. Without the old motive of compulsion  to cultivate the land for the land-owner, now  that the land has reverted to the peasants and  they  themselves  are the  owners,  they have  neglected to work and to produce the  necessaries of life.   To such a phase is the  nation  drifting that recent dispatches have reported  that  the   so-called    government of present-  day  Russia  is  sending   plenipotentiaries   to  China,   the   formerly   despised and  so-called  decadt-nt neighbor  to the east, to make   arrangements   for  provisions to tide them over  next winter. It  is   difficult to imagine China,  one   of  the   most  densely populated areas in  the   world,   living  largely  on   rice   and  very  "meagre fare, having sufficient supplies, to feed  100,000,000 people in starving Russia.    Bolshevism is sometimes quoted in   this   country  as   an   ideal, worthy imitation.   The  pass to  which Russia lias drifted   is   a   warning   that  Bolshevism and insanity are not very far apart.  The nation that will weather the storm of this  war the best, is the nation that organizes most  Canada's new system of license control of  dealers in foodstuffs involves over 80,000 retail establishmonts and about 23,500 wholesalers. Of the total number of retailers there  are 30,000 grocers, 10.000 butchers, 50,000  public eating places, 5000 bakers, 2000 fish  dealers, 4500 fruit and vegetable deelers, and  4000 produce dealer's.  ==^  Our optical training plus experience enables us to  give you the best of service.

J  It may take all America to win the war, but  it will bo on hand when the crisis comes. This  country doesn't entertain for one moment as  to what the result will be. It realizes its  power and will make it count when Germany  seems to gain a point. Why, we haven't begun  to fight yet. We are still getting ready and  are yet far short of our determination to get  ready. We are going to march to Berlin'if it  takes 5,000,000 men to do it, and we will provide them all they need- to eat while on the  way. This republic is getting more earnest  every day and it will keep on until the kaiser  and his cruel frightful are driven back to the  shades of Prussia to stay and rot. That is the  sort of determination which rules this republic, and it's growing ..stronger every day. We  may suffer some reverses, but they will cut no  ii''ure in the final solution.���������Ohio State  Journal.

BOYS' AND  GIRLS' COMPETITIONS  Through tlie action of the minister of agri  culture, Hon. T. A. Crera*, arrangements have  been made to have the Canadian Bankers' association cooperate with the department of  agriculture in providing a liberal sum of money  to be offered in prizes for calves and pigs exhibited by boys and girls under 17 years of  ace, at one fair in each district���������either a coun-  ty, township or school fair.  These competitions are known as the "Canadian Bankers' Competitions," and are linked  up with the activities of the livestock branch  of the .Dominion agricultural department.  They represent an effort to increase interest  in live stock,and constitute apart of theactive  campaign for more and better stock inaugurated and carried by that department. The  generous support accorded to the movement  by the Canadian Bankers' association affords  a practical demonstrations of the attitude of  the banks towards the live stock industry,  and the active participation of the association  in this campaign is bound to strengthen and  create general interest in farm live stock.

'K  Some Orchard  Cover Crops  .[EXPERIMENTAL FARMS N0T15.]  The main uses of the cover crop in  tlie orchard are: To hold the snow in  winter and thus afford greater protection to the roots oj trees* to prevent  the thawing and freezing of the  ground; to lessen the depth to which  the frost will go'in the soil; to furnish vegetahle matter in the spring for  the purpose of obtaining humus and  nitrogen, and to act as a catch-  crop in autumn to prevent tho leaching of plant food made available dur-  ng the summer. The cover crop is  also a moans of reducing the moisture  in the soil by transpiration, and thus  aids in ripening the wood of fruit  trees liable to be injured. Where the  soil has been long cultivated, and  needs additional plant food, especially  nitrogen, leguminous plants, such as  clover and vetches, which will take  free nitrogen from the air,   and   thus  add a latge quantity of this useful  and expensive fertilizer to the soil at  slight cost, are usually best; while  where the soil has not been long under cnltivation and is well supplied  with humus and nitrogen, a non-  leguminous plant such as rape or  buckwheat . may be better, as the  holding of snow and the protectiou of  the roots of the trees are then more  impoutant than adding fertility to the  seil, especially where the snowfall is  lieht.  In the colder parts of Canada,where  there is usually plenty of moisture   in  summer, it is better to sow   seed . for  cover crop in the first half of July   or  even in late June, rather than in   the  second half of July, as it is important  to have the wood of trees   thoroughly  ripened before winter setsdn.   By sowing the seed early the growth   of   the  tree should be aided in ripening by the  drying of the soil caused by the   tran  spiration of moisture from   the grow  ing   cover   crop.    In the  dryer   and  milder parts of Canada it is not neces  saay   to  sow   seed for the cover crop  until about the middle of July, as the  early ripening of the wood is not so  mportant as the conserving of moisture in the soil by cultivation through  the early part of the summer. .No  nurse crop is, as a rule, necessary  Some of the desirable characteristics  of a good plant for cover crops are,  first, that it will <rerminate quickly  and grow rapidly, so that weeds wil  be checked. It should be a strong  grower, as there should be dense cover  to prevent the frost from penetrating  deeply into the ground It should  stand fairly erect, so that it will hold  the snow well in winter It should  also be a plant which can be easily  handled in the orchard. In districts  were there is danger of making the  soil too dry by late growth, a cover  crop should be chosen which will be  killed by early frost, such as buckwheat. Some of the best plants for  cover crops are: Mammoth red clover,  common red clover, crimson clover,  hairy vetch, summer vetch,buckwheat  and rape. The. last has been found  very useful on the prairies for holding  snow. Where weeds are not liable to  spread into adjacent areas and cause  extra labor, they make a fair cover  crop if allowed to grow up after the  end of June.  B  f  19 asid-2������ Years of Age.

It has come to tho attention of the Government that there is a widespread  impression that young men of nineteen years, and those who became twenty  since October 13, 1917, as well as those who may become nineteen from time to  time and who have been or will be called upon to register under the Military  Service Act, are to be immediately called to the colours.  .'������������������"..���������  - This impression is quite incorrect. No date has yet been fixed for calling  upon such men to so report; for duty, nor has the question been brought before  the Cabinet for decision. In view of the. need of labour on the farm, it is most  unlikely that consideration will be given to the matter until after the harvest is  over, although of course the Government's action must be determined primarily  by the military situation.  There is no further obligation incumDent upon young men of the ages  above mentioned who have registered or who do. so hereafter, until they receive  notice from the Registrars.  Harvest Leave.  Some enquiries have been received as to the possibility of granting harvest  leave to such troops as ma}' be in the country at that time. No definite assurance can be given on this point as advantage must be taken of ships as they  become available. On the other hand, harvest leave will be given if at all  possible.  Leave of Absence on Grounds of Extreme Hardship.  It is desired that the Regulations respecting leave of absence in cases of hardship should be widely known and fully understood. Such leave will Be granted  in two cases:��������� (a) where extreme hardship arises by reason of the fact that the  man concerned is either the only son capable of earning a livelihood, of a father  killed or disabled on service or presently in service overseas, or in training for  such service, or under treatment after returning from overseas; or the only  remaining of two or more brothers capable of earning a livelihood (the other  brother or brothers having been killed or disabled on service, or being presently  in service overseas, or in training for overseas or under treatment after his or  their return from overseas); brothers married before 4th August, 1914, 'living in  separate establishments and having a child or children not to be counted,  in determining the fact that the man is the "only" remaining son or brother;  (b) where extreme hardship arises by reason of exceptional circumstances such as  the fact that the man concerned is the sole support of a widowed mother, an  invalid father or other helpless dependents.  It is to be noted that in all the^e cases the governing factor is not hardship,  loss or suffering to the individual concerned, but to others, that is, members of  his family or those depending upon him.  Procedure to obtain leave of absence.  A simple system for dealing with these cases has been adopted. Forms of  application have been supplied to every Depot Battalion and an officer of each  battalion has been detailed whose duty it is to give them immediate attention.  The man concerned should on reporting to his unit state that he desires to apply  for leave of absence on one or more of the grounds mentioned and his application  form will then be filled out and forwarded to Militia Headquarters, Ottawa. In  the meantime, if the case appears meritorious, the man will be given provisional  leave of absence for thirty days so that he may return home and continue his  civil occupation while his case is being finally disposed of.
